The final day is at Halfmoon  Bay on Friday, April 22.  At the Kiwanis meeting.on  April 5 a formal motion was  made by Danny Smith see-  oned by George Hopkins that  the Sunshine Coast proceed  with plans to secure necessary  funds to build a public ktiite-  rary for Gibsons and area.  The motion was carried' without  a dissenting  vote.  This   action  was  the   resulc  of  seme   fine  work  by  Jules  Manil who had charge of;the  preliminary work  in securing  ��� a  site  and  the   necesary  . approval from the various interested  groups. He reported^his  reception  from  both  the village council  and the    Library  board to have been exceptionally friendly and co-operative-  Mr.     Manil    presented ; his  plan for   a suitable    building  to house some 4000 books designed so it would be  a simple    matter    to     add    to    It  should  it be found   necessary  at a  later' date.  The site of the new building made possible by the village council is on Winn Roa���l  this sid:i <~f the village garage, a very acceptable location  high, dry and with a fine  view; and no parking problem. -.*'-,  The Kiwanis Club appointed  a committee to carry out the  project with Jules Manil as  chairman assisted by Jim Stewart as secretary of the committee also William Bow, Dr_  D.T.R.

Now, let us consider one  of these schools where the  problem  is most acute.  The Pender Harbour Senior  High Elementary School is  one of. our new schools built  in 1951. It was built to take  the place of four ancient elementary s c h.o o 1 s at> Madeira Park, Hasson's Landing,  Kleindale and Silver Sands  which had a total enrolment  in 1950 of 103.-The old Madeira Park School was prudently retained for possible future  use as an annex and the remaining three schools were  disposed of in-due-course to  the   highest   bidders.  The ' new school provides  for teaching grades one to 12  and has four classrooms and  an activities room which, with  the annex, seemed .to be ample accommodation at the  time. But, what has happened  since 1950? . From an enrolment of 103 in 1950-51 the  school population of Pender  Harbour has jumped to 186  in the school year 1954 - 55  and the studies made by the  Board indicate that pre-school  children and ordinary progression will increase the en-,  rolment over the next five  years to 235. This estimate  does not take into account  possible increase through influx of population.  With the. present enrolment  the school is bursting at the  seams in spite of the fact that  the activities room is being  used as a classroom and the  old school is being used as an  annex. The size of the classes  is driving the teachers to dis-  New !

Concert tickets  are selling well  Tickets now are being sold  by the Girl Guides for the  Peninsula Choraliers' concert  on April 22.  Ticket sales are good ' and  the School Hall is expected to'  be well filled on Concert  night.  Anyone wishing tickets  should get in touch with the  Girl Guides or their leaders.  Practice is ccu__intririg apace  by both the choir and the  soloists. Jean Hague and Mr.  Roberts sang their pieces at  the last rehearsal, and Mrs.  Mainil and Mrs. Lucken got  together on the duet they, will  sing on the evening of the  concert.  Proceeds from this event go  to the Headlands Au__fliary to  the VON which is raising  funds in its annual campaign.

Contributions ranging from  substantial cheques from business   people    to    surprisingly  large amounts from old age  pensioners and people in moderate circumstances testified  to the regard so many have  for  "their own hospital."

The average reader caii recall visiting some place  after having been .told of its beauties only to be struck by  something very much out of place���something unbeautiful  ������a something that could have been removed.  Residents of Gibsons and the whole Sunshine Coast  area should remember the foregoing, now the /time of year  has approached for clean-up and paint-up operations. Eyesores should be sought out and something done about them.  The Village Commission has declared next week as  "Clean-Up and Paint-Up Week." The chairman, James  Drummond, has issued an appeal for support of all citizens;  not taxpayers alone, but all citizens, to do their part in improving conditions wherever they can.  Service clubs, Board of Trade, the Legion and other  public-minded bodies including church organizations and  auxiliaries should add their weight to the movement towards making Gibsons a better place in which to live and  a place where visitors will not be struck by unnecessary  debris amidst so much natural beauty.  Sunshine Coast people are proud of the area in  which they live���but they shotjld be so proud they cannot-  allow any unsightly condition to continue.     ky���;>���'?;  LETTERS to EDITtii   ;  Dear Editor: Note your  headline re Pender Harbour  power system to be finally  started. Also note a battle  seems to be on re BC Electric  eyeing the Pender, Harbour  end, and intimating the possibility that they might be  going after power themselves  ��� at that end.  My personal opinion is that  the BC Electric should come  into the whole Peninsula and  then maybe when we screamed about the high rates we  ' are now paying, we might1 get  some satisfaction. Competition  would be one of the best  ; things that could happen to  the whole area.  At this time there are very  few people happy about the  high bills they are paying, for  what they are getting from  BC Power. They seem all powerful here and certainly very  autocratic about the whole  thing. When you complain,  you get brushed off in no uncertain terms, seems you have  no recourse .to anyone.  The point that power rates  have been cut in half over  'the years, to me is a. big joke.  I'm paying as much now as I  have ever paid, in over 13  years on the Peninsula. With  a very minimum of electrical  gadgets, that half the time are  not in use, bills are ridiculous.  I think it is time residents got  together, petitioned the BC  Electric to come in and service the Peninsula, with some  competition. We might eventually get a break in rates;  then we could afford some of  the up-to-date electric equipment, that we don't dare use  at  this  date.  Once upon a time, this was  a retired person's paradise,  also the pensioner could hope  to exist in a fair way! Now  with high taxes, high water  rates, higher electric bills, certainly people think twice before they settle here and it is  driving many others off the  Peninsula. It is about time  folks woke up to the fact that  they have an "Octopus" in  their midst, but as long as  they take it, I guess BC Power  will dish it out . . . just a  beef I wanted to air . . guess  this is as far as it will get.  Disgusted.  New I would.suggest ;ythat  the pressure be put on the* government to push through the  road from Gibsons to Squam-,  ish. If that were done then the  Black Ball would be quite  willing to listen to any purchaser for their outfit. The  railroad will soon be completed from North Vancouver to  Squamish and also into the  Peace River. Then there  would be some inducement  for the settlers tp grow something and deliver it direct to  the PGE. It^ouldb'e^rdifec-:  outlet for our fruit and vegetables to the north and a short  route to bring in necessary  grain and hay grown in the  Peace River and along the  CNR from Prince George to  Smithers, also supplies from  Edmonton  and   east  H. R. Carson.  Editor: I have just read Mr.  C. Vr Cassidy's letter in your  newsy paper and it is well  known all along the Sechelt  Peninsula that his comments  on the transportation problem  from Gibsons to Horseshoe  Bay are heartily approved by  everyone.  But I don't see how the government could step in and  force the Black Ball to sell  out. I understand it was Black  Ball money that blacktopped  the highway from Gibsons tb  Sechelt and everyone* is reaping the benefit from that  agreement and the govern,  ment is trying to play a fair  game  with everyone.  Editor: We do so heartily  agree' with the sentiments expressed by L.S.J, in the loss of  the natural beauty of the  woods, now adorned by beer  bottles, piles. of garbage and  derelict cars.  Time was when we could go  for miles along the trails in  Sechelt, where the Dogwoods  stood in all their glory, especially on what is known locally as the back road. With  the advent of the bulldozer,  there are none to be seen. In  more leisurely times one  bought ,a ;lot and chose the  place for the home and saved  the natural trees in all" their  beauty. N.pw- one buys;'a lot,  brings in a bulldozer; down  with the trees, up goes a shack  of some sort.  4 To our horror we were informed that our boulevard  would be cleared shortly.  Why, may we ask? There are  some five or six beautiful dogwoods on this side road which  have been long loved and enjoyed. If any money is to be  expended by the Public Works  we would suggest filling in  the pot holes or removing the  boulders out of some of the  secondary roads hereabouts.  Another bright idea we  heard about is a movement to.  cut down the big. maple which  stands in front of the Legion  Hall. Why, Its not in the way.  Surely there should be some  spots of~ natural beauty* left "to  us in our    hurrying    civilization. Some years ago a magiu-.  ficent maple stood at the top ~  of the hill known as Bill Allen's maple.    An over.zealous  road foreman had this felled.  Mr. Allen and    many    others  protested?.   Today the    stump  still stands, showing  that  the  tree was.not in the way. What  a cool spot it was in summer  when one had to walk in the  heat three miles for the   mail.  Its memory still lingers.  So with L.S.J, we plead for  the beauty spots on the trails.  Mrs. A. A. French  THE SNIPER'S RIDE  BY. L.S.J.  - An episode came to my  mind recently when I was  locking over a boom of cedar  logs. From the look of these  logs here was a real something, the goal had been  reached, an attainment that  would ripple down the rain  forest chit chat for ages to  ccme. A logging camp without an axe.  * *      *  My first asquaintance with  a real axe came at Brackeh-  dale a spot in the Squamish  Valley, a place of desolation,  abandoned hop farms, mosquitoes, and, a pub called the  Brackendale' Arms which  might have been lifted off the  Sussex Downs with sign and  everything. In the matter of  the axe an explanation has to  be made on account of the  snipe which is a wading bird  to you but in the logging parlance of yesteryear, a bevel  made with an axe to enable  the log to ride over obstructions while being yarded. So  the sniper. also was a part of  the team  and   not  an   expert  rifleman.  * *       *  I suppose if a man found  one of these axe hpads somewhere' in the countryside today it would be considered  with some awe as to what  manner of man wielded" this  unusual tool. It was true any  axe would cut a snipe but the.  axe "that Was Made for the  job was a sniper's axe. This  fearsome weapon weighed 5  lbs. and I have heard of heav- .  ier; ones. The blade was flared  out to about six inches along  the edge and the , chap - who  used it had  quite  a   job.  He'could be leisurely working en the logs or the part of  the log he could get' at but  when the part of /the log that  had been in the ground rolled  up as the riggin tightened this  bucko had to be chain lightening as the donkey would have"  a good head of steam and the  riggin crew would all have to  .stand,; and; wait. ��>  It was at this camp on the  Cheekeye that in a moment of  youthful    exuberance    I    bor^  rowed tlie  sniper's  axe while  he was    Off   somewhere k. and*;  drove the best bit (there was  always one bit ground    to    a  razor edge) into a spruce knot  and a piece of the bit the size  of a quarter was left'in    the  cut. When Kelly   came     back  and picked up his axe he gave  a  mournful look   and  pitched"  it  into the-brush ar\d  started;. .  off down the road. The hook-f  tender looked over at me.and  said "You had better get him .  back or go alpng with    him.'.'  June in Jan,  BY . RICHARD   F.

Twenty, days' in March, saw  temperatures below the freezing point, and" March 4 saw  the minimum thermometer  resting at a frigid 16.8 degrees  above zero for the coldest day  of the winter as well as the  lowest temperature ever recorded  for  March.  Snowfall, though mostly  wet, fell on ten days and set  a new record of 9.2 inches  while precipitation, fell on 19  days during the month for a  total figure of 5.77 inches,  compared with the normal of  4.16 inches.

When I caught up with him  he turned back but I kept going.  So you see his importance.  His origin along with his axe  came down from ancient days  of oxen and horse team logging when the bark was almost removed, or a great deal  of it. Then there was that unusual chore of barking a ride,  actually to chop a flat of varying degree on the log so that  it would stay right side up  while being hauled down    the  skid road.  *       *       *  The ingenuity and extent of  the old time logger's ability  to overcome friction could be  seen on the skid road flats  where hauling was hard. Erach  skid would have a maple  wedge or glut neatly dovetailed into that portion of the  skid that the log travelled on  and liberally sprayed with  dogfish oil. Behind the turn  and  tacked  onto the  tail log  was a small conveyance similar to a sled but known by  a much more raffish name.  This was for the -few .tools in  case of a hang up and to  bring the dog chains etc. back  to the woods.  .The greaser who greased  the skids and sanded the  hills to hold the logs back,  then had to brush each skid  on the way back where the  horses' feet might have kicked up a bit of sand. These  men worked especially hard  if it was a tough road as, no  men ever work in the woods  today and perhaps it is a  good thing and perhaps not.  When-I see a good, axe nowadays which is rarely, I think  of my old friend Jake gathered to his fathers long since  who ence said "Let me into  your town with an axe and I  will wreck it from end to  end." This of course was- before the days of steel and concrete.  She glared and glared  (BY ERIK  OLESON)  If a reasonably modern car  could come to a groaning stop  like the Model T, everything  would be fine.  It was a little while ago  about half-way between the  United States southern frontier at San Ysidro" and the  Mexican resort and fishing  port of Ensenada.The car was  a sedan of well known make  and moderate price, but that  didn't give it any distinction.  It was laden with suits on  a rack hung in the back seat,  the usual suitcases and satchels. What gave it distinction  was its sudden decision to go  that far and" no further.  ��� We had all stopped at Puerto Nuevo which is marked on  the maps as a village but  which is in fact a' cafe-cantina  serving beer and coffee while  offering comforts for the travellers down the long and empty road.'  The "Servicio Amarillo"  (Yellow Bus Line) had come in  a few minutes before and we  all tumbled out like driven  sheep for a stretch which was  badly needed or liquid refreshment which was less  needed but more welcome.  Just thenyup came -this- car  and gasped  into silence.  The driver was frustrated  and used all his    levers    and  controls to no effect. He got  out and opened the engine  hood and rather fruitlessly  yanked at this, and tested that,  tightening a screw, feeling the  side of the hot engine and  wiping his perspiring brow  with a well oiled hand.  In the front seat his wife  maintained an aloofness which  increased as the passengers  from the Yellow Bus Line gathered first gingerly and then  ayidly. They circled the car;  spruce young bloods and  large' middle aged Indians  -with babies athwart  the hips.  I walked up and saluted the  man with the usual compassion of one who has often  been in the same fix. In broken English and voluble Mexican Spanish, advice of every  sort had been given to the  driver. I could speak his language for it was mine, but as  far as mechanical lore, "; no  soap! .  After awhile I went Over  to the other side and greeted  the woman who sat in , the .  front seat who glared at me  in her defence against the  foreign locale, foreign language and alienated motor.  Finally she realized that it  was her own language and in  monosyllabic remarks she  snorted out her opinion of  everything. It was not tactful  to show her the georgeous  circle, of beach and cliff just  in front or the sharp hills rising treeless into a limpid sky.  This shortened my expression  cf sympathy. Just then the engine coughed.  Out of the bus- passengers,  the least likely of the lot. an  old man wrapped in a huge  scarf and with hands as blunt  as fenceposts had sagaciously  found a loose wire,- attached it  - and rejected the offered tip.  1 suggested a beer would be  acceptable but then the "jefe"  of the Yellow bus came out  and imperiously herded us into his ancient vehicle. The  car started up and as it drew  out0 of the yard of the one-  house-town of Puerto Nuevo,  the wife was sitting eyes  straight ahead and blind to,  sea or sun.  Under the fishing gear the  British Columbia license was  dust covered.  You know, I wonder if taking your wife to Mexico to go  fishing is exactly the way to  keep a marriage in a straight  course ..". . I just wonder  now! Was it the road, .the  strange language, or the fishing tackle. that so thoroughly  divorced that determined Woman from her fellow beings?  You folks might listen ., to  any tall fish stories that begin  .to circulate, but the other  side of the story might be  heard anywhere from the Ladies Aid to the Judge's Cham-,  bers.

Wright)  This paper,    printed in  part, was delivered at the  recent   Resources   Conference in Victoria.  We have every reason to be  very proud-of our forests, because in many ways they are  quite unique and remarkable.  Fifty percent of the remaining  old growth stand of hemlock  and balsam on the west Coast  of North America is in British  Columbia and two thirds of  the remaining volume of cedar  on the entire continent is in  this, province. The rate of  growth of our best young  hemlock.and fir stands is very  impressive.  Not all of    our    timber    is  fast growing or of high quality. We have vast areas of inaccessible scrub    timber    and  poor' growing' site. .Still,     our  great timber    resources    have  attracted venture, capital from  all over the "world," and -they  are    supporting..',^;   vigorous,,  ���> ever-expanding industry.   .'-.-..'.  Our   second     growth     trees  are just as beautiful^ as    our  old  growth  trees.   Young  for-'  ests are  just  as  effective     in  conserving  water as  are,  o3d'  forests. Second growth forests-  will yield    economic    returns  that will surpass the  yield  of  our old growth timber in the  past.  Young  forests   generally  are far superior to virgin forests in providing food and cpv-.  er for game, and they are eminently satisfactory for public "  recreation purposes.  ; A main deterring factor  which is holding back public  interest in our forest industries is the belief that there  is something wrong about cutting our decadent virgin timber. Strangely enough, many  people feel that if we cut our  timber we are somehow destroying pur heritage. They  reason, .therefore, that the  logger is a destructive person.  A second misconception exists which is closely . related  to the view that it is bad to  cut our timber. This ^econd  misconception is the belief  that logged-over lands are  devastated lands. If we can  correct this latter misconception, then the belief that it is  bad to cut timber also can be  changed.  We have all-read the slogan  "Tinjberis a> crop; the harvest  is tKes^^T^^^ie^'^o^  sum up the situation in a .'nutshell, because timber is a  crop and the harvest is trees.  Many people seem to think  of trees as being static. They  cannot think of them as growing as a crop in the same way  that apples and potatoes grow.  Or, if they d0 recognize that  trees grow, they think of this  growth as being so slow that.  it is not significant.  One of our big jobs, then,  is to get across the idea that  young timber is dynamic. I  wonder how many people fea- ,  lize that an area of typical  " forest soil the size of a 50- -  foot city lot will grow 1,300  pounds of wood per year, if it  is fully stocked with young  fir timber. In an old growth  forest, on the other hand,  growth and decay generally  are in balance, so that there  is no net growth.  I know a case of a farmer  who logged three acres of 60  year old fir-hemlock timber  on a corner of his property.  This property was logged originally in about the year 1890  and a healthy young forest  had sprung up naturally after  LAND Ml  Notice of Intention  to Apply to  Purchase Land-  In Land .Recording District  of -Vancouver, New 'Westminster Land District and situate  two and one half miles due  west and one and one half  miles due north of Sechelt,  B.C.  .- Take notice that Earl Ed-  . ward Coe, of Sechelt B.C., occupation, Manager, intends to.  apply for permission to purchase the following described  lands:   .  Commencing at a post planted at the northeast corner of  D.L. 3824, Gp. 1, New Westminster Land District, thence  forty (40) chains due West;  thence forty (40) chains due  North to the boundary of the  Sechelt Forest Reserve, thence  forty (40) chains due East;  thence forty (40) chains due  South and containing one hundred and sixty (160*) "acres', '  more or  less.  The purpose for  which  the  land is required is a homesite.  "Earl Edward  Coe"  Dated March 25th,   1955.  ' the original logging was com-  .   pleted.  To the farmer's surprise,  he recovered 140 cords of  pulpwood, 80 piling and  22,000 board feet of sawlogs  on this small area. On the exceptionally strong log market  prevailing in the summer of  1951. he produced $5,770  worth of forest products,  which is a ' gross return of  $1,923 per acre.  If the farmer does his own  logging and trucking, he will  of course get the maximum  share .of the gross value of  the log in wages for his labor  and in return on his; own capital investment in trucks, tractors  and other equipment.  Every farmer who is producing logs from his property,  every small logger, and every  logger who works for a large  company is engaged' in the big  job. of tree farming and forest  management.  '��������� We face many complex  problems in establishing intensive, scientific forest,, manage-,  ment. These problems are not  going to be met by just passing.

They are going to be  :ihet fully- Only/-, if we ; cah: en-  -list the support of all the men.:  who are engaged in the forest  industries, and the general  public as'well. Some of the  greatest contributions to the  practice ...of silviculture are gbr  ing to come, from the logging  foreman, the contractor., and  the farmer who are on the job.  cultivating' and tending the  forests of; the future, and harvesting the mature timber.  During the past several  years great strides have, been  made in stimulating public interest in our forests. The B.C.  Forest Service, the University,  the department qf education  and the forest industries all  are stepping up their programs df demonstration . and  education.  The greatest strides have  been made in creating fire  consciousness on the part of  loggers and the general public. Fire protection always will  be a cornerstone of our forestry program, and it has been  gratifying to see the growing  public acceptance of the proposition that fire prevention is  everybody's job, and that everybody loses when ' timber  burns..,,- \y,r,s,-. ,;,,,. ...r'!t,.���...  An outstanding example of  what can be accomplished on  the community level in forest  education is the experience of  the municipality of Mission, a  thriving community in the  Fraser Valley which had hith*  erto thought of itself as an agricultural " and distributing  centre in which other industrial activities were purely incidental. It was riot until 195.1,  when the B.C. Branch of the  Canadian Forestry association  designated Mission City as  "Forest Conservation Week  Town" that her ��� citizens took  stock of their forest resources;  They were amazed to discover  that the timber crop tributary  to the Mission district brought  in an estimated revenue of  more than $9,000,000 a year.  Since then, Mission has become very forest conscious.  In addition to  the    important work    already    done    in  Mission in the name of    conservation, the community also  enjoyed the    distinction     last  year of introducing a unit    of  forestry in British Columbia's  high school, curriculum.      The  six-week course   stresses    for-  est    management    and   sound  utilization of the    forest    resource.. If,;: after a year's trial  at Mission, the course proves  to fill a real heed, it probably.'  will be introduced in various  other high schools throughout  the province. Approved by J.  F.  K. English,  municipal    inspector of    schools,    Victoria,  the course was  prepared    by  the  Mission School Porest association, which is an administrative group made up of citizens, educationalists and businessmen.      < '. ���  This public concern with the  forest also  led to the district  applying for a forest management license, taking in Crown  land with'their already established municipal forest    land,  to make a compact unit which  will be of great benefit to the  district. Although  not,formally established^ as    yet,    it appears very likely to become a  reality.              k  _ The Tree Farm    movement  is growing in British    Columbia, and it seems to have had  a stimulating effect in. encouraging   private    land    owners,  large and small, to enlist their  lands in the business of growing trees at a profit.  Another effective educational program is the Junior War  den movement of the  Ganad-  . ian Forestry Association.  Twenty-five thousand youngsters have graduated from  the ranks of this organization  and 8,000 * are now under  training. Serving a useful purpose now they offer a still  more potent-force in the future. The CFA has found that  not only are the youngsters  influenced in good forest management practices, but they  also interest" their parents and  other personal contacts,' thus  becoming a valuable force in  the forest management program.  The task before us is clear.  We must tell the story of our  forests to everyone. The story  must' be. repeated over and  over again, until every British  Columbian begins to feel that  he knows, and understands  his  forest  heritage.  them to take over the Com-  munity Hall at Irvine's Landing for their Saturday evening  rendezvous following the  much anticipated supper of  Pender Harbour oysters, supplied by local oystermen and  prepared by Mrs. Eunice Fin-  cham of Irvine's Landing Hotel.

He pointed out that the results of these tests had not  yet been published but that  the fact that large quantities  of the vaccine were now being manufactured' might indicate that it is expected to  be successful. It would take  many months and7 many millions Of dollars to produce the  tons of vaccine required    for  * an. immunization project on a  mass scale.  In the U.S. the National  Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, had announced  it    had  * ordered 25 million cc. of the  Salk vaccine because of its belief that it would be found effective.  Tlie PTA also laid plans  for a fashion show in May  which will feature old-fashioned . bathing suits on live  models.  The pennant  for. the    class  with   the  largest   number    of  parents present at the    meeting was won by Miss Ceasar's .  ���room.       ,,...-������  We have, had; pocket lamps,  ppcke.t v:.bb'okg"��fnd pocket radios;' Now we have ��� pocket  stools. They. are. just about the  size of those little pocket  y.icrime stories, and are reminiscent of the Ascot,cane. Ideal  for watching sports events, sitting oh the beach, and alt  kinds of places. They have  sturdy metal frames, canvas  seats in various colors, and are.  very handy little items.  The old story of the one-  armed paper hanger might be  revamped today to read "as  successful as a���,'! if he used  the new ready-pasted, ready  trimmed papers now available-, One. simply ywets and  hangs them.  The patterns run all the  way from whimsically, decorated papers such as the Country Squire to patterns sSimu-  lating monks cloth, tweed and  other fabrics. Singly, or in  two patterns, they can conform to any idea in decoration.  Besides all this, the new papers are& washable, durable and  colorfast. For the do-it-yourself fans, they're ideal.  . Just because Winter has  gone, those who enjoy knitting  with the big needles and  heavy wool needn't stop.  There's nothing more comfortable for wearing on a cool  summer evening around a  beach fire than, a loose' jacket  that's warm enough to defeat  the evening breeze. Try knitting these from the same wool  that makes those attractive,  patterned sweaters. You'll be  delighted with them.  An authority on paints advises that although attractive  names for paint colors go ,a  long way as selling points,  people-still want the colors  they like. He also states that  color fashions in. the home  change just as much as do  clothing styles. Just now,  orangy-browns and pinks are  popular but he predicts that  blues will be the colors to  watch for the future. High  style in home colors is heading  that way, he believes. Paint  dealers' will v be pleased to  demonstrate their paint colors  for you, and are ideally equipped  to do  SO;. ft  When choosing a color to  paint walls, be sure to pick a  lighter hue on the color card  than the finished effect you  desire. A color that sems just  right on a small sample will  seem much darker when used  on a la.rge; area and' when reflected by three other walls  in the room.  .  .���������:��� ��� -������    -.'    ��� . ���   ,  For your Shopping Convenience  in Sechelt  THESE STORES WILL REMAIN OPEN  to 9 p.m. each Friday  Until Further Notice  Clayton's Grocery  Sechelt Lockers  Sechelt Service Store  Union Red & White  1_F  UNION  RED & WHITE STORE  Th�� Largest Food Store on the Peninsula  With the Widest Variety  Phone Sechelt 18  FOR FREE DE&IVERY  WATCH FOR OUR  RED & WHITE FLYERS  IN YOUft LOCAL HIST OFFICE  APRIL 15 & 16  ANNOUNCING A CHANGE IN  STORE HOURS:  NOW OPEN FRIDAY EVENINGS  UNTIL 9 PJvl.

Take Them  You 7/ get practical help %_*  LONG HONEYMOON  A magazine recently carried an amusing story of a  couple who. on their wedding  day, solemnly pledged themselves to a life-long practice of  courtesy to each other, and  lived up to it.  The man, who. wrote this  little bit of biography said  wherever they went, people  thought they must be on their  honeymoon. Even w,hen .they  were in later middle life, hotel clerks, waiters, shopkeepers made it known they were  sure that only a couple of  newly-weds would be so nice  to each other.  There are nearly 240,000  marriages in Canada every  year,   and  according to latest  B. W. M. BONE  Chartered    Accountant  1045   West Pender  St.  TAtlow  1954  VANCOUVER 1,   BC.

So,  for these people, the honeymoon is soon over.  When a man asked that  some flowers- be sent to. his  wife, the florist said: "I didn't  know your wife was ill."  * *       *  .The situation has greatly  changed in many ways during  the past 50 years; The number of women who go to business steadily increases, and  this state of affairs seems likely to increase, and we must  adapt ourselves to a hew situation. We' are not passing any  opinions" upon this, simply  recognizing this new factor in  modern, life.  Sir James Barrie used to  tell .of a visit he. paid to a  home in the Scottish Highlands, where a man seriously  said to him, "I am the only  man in this district who insisted that my wife manage  the financial affairs in our  home. Arid, now. see what has  happened-���I am the only- man  that owns a two-storey house!"  In spite of some depressing  facts most marriages are happy, and adjustments to changing conditions are happily  made. But no one will deny  that courtesy and . consideration are: like oil in the machinery of . household , affairs.  The wife of Thomas Carlyle  complained that he very; rarely ever paid compliments ��� of  any kind��� when he wasn't  grumbling she knew he was  happy���that was the high water mark of his disposition.  * *       *  In. contrast to Carlyle we  have Theodore Roosevelt, who  refused to have flowers, on  the dining room table because  they prevented him from seeing his wife's face. An English  magazine not long ago carried an article with the title:  Marriages Made in Heaven,  which made good reading because of the impressive list  of notable people whose married ��� lives had been extremely happy. .    ,  I think I - mentioned in a  previous article what^ Chaun-  cey" Depew" said ^when , someone asked him who he would  ���like to "be if he were not  Chauncey 'Depew, and his  prompt reply: "My wife's second husband!!"    y^  There is no ready-made answer, to affective home atmosphere'but this little story is  worth remembering. A lady,  one cf a large family, told me  recently that in her home the  idea of conversation was an  argument. Someone would  ^make' a statement and another  would flatly contradict it;  then a full debate was on.  I once saw an epitaph in a  cemetery I-have never forgotten. After stating a few facts  it had this pithy line: "He  was best at home." "That is a  magnificent tribute. It doesn't  matter a great deal whether  a man is a "big' shot" at business, or club or even Church,  the test is���how does he rate  at home?  Our quotation today is by  Dr. Frank Crane: The most  inipqrtant -element- in any  heme is God.'  -ft-H  Gargrave visits  Bowen Island  On Tuesday evening, April  5, Tony Gargrave, MLA, paid  a visit to Bowen Island and  had a fairly representative  meeting. He outlined Hhe work  of the Legislature at the last  session, and also brought up  the matter of equalization of  assessment, and how in his  opinion school taxes are liable  to increase in the future.  He also spoke on the issue  of the ferry service between  Horseshoe. Bay and Bowen Island.  The question of a long  range road programme was  also brought up, with the  view of gradually improving  jhe: ro;ads here. ;���  Rf-XALL le SALE  ends  April IS  The auditorium at the Elphinstone High School was  well filled for the-spring concert presented by the Gibsons  Elementary School last week.  The principal, Mr. Childs, told  the audience, there had been  a postponement due to illness,  and that some of the children  were still away. One of the  teachers who trained the children, Mrs. Pearson, suffered  illness but Mrs. Hough had  stepped in, and with the aid  of other members of the staff  continued the training. The  children were enthusiastic and  willing . performers, and needed no excuses.  Grade three opened with  a rhythm band and vocal presentation of MacNamara's  Band and Molly Malorie, directed by Mr. Henderson. , The  children were in bright green  costumes for these numbers.  Mr. Steilow directed grade  five in two square dances,,  each rhythmically called by  one of the girls. A mock orchestra, led with much, enthusiasm by one of the boys, kept  the rhythm fcr the dancers, occasionally expressing their delight in real old-time'"Whoopees."  Dear Old Donegal and a  Fairy Song by grade four students, were directed by Mrs.  Bisbee. Again, the performers  were gaily costumed. The Fairy  song, accompanied by a little  dance, was as dainty as spring  "itself. Donegal was done in  the fine old handshaking style  described  by the    song,    and  Port Mellon  BY MRS. SWAN  The Klondike Nite put on  by the Rod and Gun Club ,  was a huge success, everybody  got into the spirit of the thing  and when the. home waltz was .  played it seemed that the evening was all too short.  Everyone did. full justice to  the home-made pork and  beans and brown  bread.  Mr. and Mrs. Littler, Mr.  and Mrs. Palmer and Mr. Les  Lane, all of Vancouver, acted  as judges.  Mr. Mason got first prize  for best beard, Mr. Marleau  _second. prize.. Best dressed  lady, Mrs. Latham; best dressed gent, Mr. Simpson; second  _ best dressed lady. Mrs. Ben-  tham; second best dressed  gent, Mr. Mason, and original,  Mrs. Harrop.  Spot dances were won by  Mrs. Clarke, Mrs. Beacon  Mrs. Swan and Mr. Dunham.  Closest guess on bean jar. was  Mr. Enemark's; guess on  weight of gold nugget," Mr.  Harrop.  The members of * the club  wish to thank the merchants  wl o donated prizes, also the  Canadian  Legion.  Mr. Bentham, president    of  the  club,    says  it  it planning  ,several-events,  one of    which  w.'ll include the young boys.  Mrs. H. Taylor had .a bad  fall and broke her right arm.  Mr. and Mrs. M. Plant and  Mr. and Mrs. C. Howse of  Nanaimo were here for a ;cou-  ple of days renewing old  friendships. Mr. and Mrs... H.  Bursey Were hosts at a party  for them and invited all ' the  old timers.  Mrs. G. McDonald and Mrs.  J. Swan with several other,  members of Mt. Elphinstone  Chapter OES went to Powell  River to attend the official  visit of Worthy Grand Matron  .Catherine Argyle. While there  they were guests of Mrs.  Swan's sister,   Mrs.  R.  O'kell.  The Community of Port  Mellon is very proud of Bud  White, winner of the trip to  the Uruted Nations, sponsored  by Sunshine. Coast Lodge  IOOF,. also David Sherman  chosen alternate. Congratulations from us all.  here    again    were    costumes,  complete with tall hats.  Two charming little plays,  directed by Mrs. Ayles, followed. Grades one, two and three  played the King who was Sad  and the young King Cole,  played by a stand-in, with the  Queen of. Hearts, had the  whole court with its various  situations well in hand. All  the dear old nursery rhyme  favorites were in full costume,  and each approached with a  special problem. Only when  all were solved would King  Cole smile again.  In the Sleeping Beauty,  grade one was as natural as a  group of children at play,  and their comical co-operation  in moments when cues had  been forgotten was delightful.  The young Prince Charming  seemed more charmed with  the beautiful fairies than, with  the lovely Princess at times,  but surely Hans Anderson  himself could not have wished the story portrayed in any  other way. '   ���  . -A smartly costumed group  of dolls and toy soldiers presented a delightful dance and  a precise little marching drill,  called In a Toy Shop; under  M/s. Fairhurst's direction.  This was well performed,  without the loss of a step.  A little pantomime of The  Owl and the Pussy Cat, directed by Mrs. Hough, in the absence of Mrs. Pearson, was  beautifully planned and ar-.  ranged. Each little scene war.  leisurely played, and the props  were complete, from the moon,  happily dancing in an air current, to the ring on the piggy-  wig's nose, and pn down ' to  the two dancing hand in hand  on the edge of the sand.  * Mr. Childs. had directed the  choral recitation The Little  Boats of Britain, by grade  six, which was clearly and  spiritedly spoken by the  group. Grade six also presented an excellent display of  pyramids, of several figures  climaxed by a half star, well  done.  For the    final    act    grades  fcur. five and six presented a  Coast News Apr. 14, 1955 7  complete minstrel show, directed by Mrs. Bisbee. The  young performers were all in  costume and black face, and  Mr. Interlocutor was as at  ���home in his part as though he  had grown up in the deep  south. The buxom mammies  and their darky friends seemed as carefree as their originals. They sang several songs,  and a running fire of minstrel  show type jokes was kept up  in the intervals.  Mr. Childs thanked the  members of the staff, the parents, the PTA members for  their work with the many  costumes, Mrs. Kruse, Mrs.  Vernon, and the maintenance  staff for their great help.

Auto tax cut  good move  The reduction of the 15 percent sales tax on automobiles  was. greeted with enthusiasm  by the British Columbia Automobile Association and by R.  J. Hastings, BCAA director  and chairman, Ways and  Means committee, Canadian  Automobile Association. '-:'���  ... "Any cut in the tax on automobiles is a step in the right  direction" said Mr. Hastings.  "A five percent cut will reduce the price in the average  4-door sedan about $80. We  had hoped that the Hon; Walter E. Harris would remove,  the entire excise tax on1 automobiles. Still, we are glad to  know, the federal government  realizes at last that the automobile is not a luxury. Even  with this reduction, the car-  owner is still the most heavily  taxed individual in Canada.  The CAA appreciates this reduction but will continue to  plead the case of the overtaxed motorist until the unfair excise tax is entirely abolished."

GIBSONS SCHOOL HALL  APRIL 23  7.  f3_m��  BOWLERS   BANQUET  Bowling enthusiasts are  planning, a banquet for the  combined leagues in the Roberts Creek Community Hall  on May 7, Sam MacKenzie reports. About 170 bowlers are  expected at the closing cele-.  bra tion.  A Gibsons Gun Club "team  took part at the Gapilano Rod  arid Gun indoor range in  West Vancouver over the  week-end, in the B.C. Indoor  Championship.  The Gibsons team did not  come out with high points,  but gained much experience  from the attempt.  , Team. scores, out of a possible 1,200 points, were: Capi-  lano No. 1 team, ,1,086; No. 2  team, 1,020; City Police No. 1  team, 1,021; No. 2 team, 957,  and Gibsons Team, 819 points.  John Bunyan thought the  team suffered from "competition nerves" as revealed by  the rather low scoring on the  slow-fire target, where they  normally score in the upper  70's. Here, Walt Nygren scored 78, Ray Nygren 40, Const.'  McCarthy 45, and John Bunyan, 51.  In discussing the results  with Nick Lasco of Lulu island, on the Capilano No. 1  team, who holds the rating of  master pistol shot, John said it  had taken Nick seven years of  practice, firing ah average of  500 rounds a week. He shot  a 95 on the slow target and  93 on the rapid target.  He is a marvellous sportsman, and a delight to watch,  John says.  Members of these teams are  accepting the invitation of the  Gibsons Gun Club to come up  and shoot on its outdoor range  from time to time this season.  Their pleasure is in shooting,  not in competing for prizes,  and they claim that they have  no need of an elaborate range.  In May or June, the Gibsons  team will compete in the  B.C.R.A. shoot.  Cycle shop  for Sechelt  Walter Flay of Selma Park  has built a new shop next to  the Village Enterprises Building in Sechelt, where on Sat.,  April 23, he will/open his  Cycle Shop, with a special display of bicycles, past and present.  He has a number of ancient  wheels from-the days of the  old "Bone Shaker," which  should prove of special interest to cycle enthusiasts. These  date from the nineteenth cen-.  tury.  Walter Flay has built his  shop himself, for the expanding business he started at Selma Park. He worked at the  same trade in Vancouver,  where he is still a member of  the B.C. Cycle Trades Association.  ower  worl  P  going ahead  At Kleindale, S. Howlett of  the B.C. Power Commission  says too small a proportion  of the public is interested in  having electric light and power' to warrant construction of  this section of line.  For the present the power  line will be built as far as  G unboat, where the Cumming  home will be lighted.  The response in the rest of  Pender Harbour area has  beer, high, and Power Commission lines will be carrying  light and power to that area  this summer.
