Several . canvassers     have  been     appointed    but    others.  would be welcome.  Members of: Gibsons branch  of the Red Cross met on  Thursday, May 26 at the home  of the president, Mr. Norman  MacKenzie to discuss the  house to:, house canvass to arrange  appointments    for    the  ��� mobile X-ray clinic which_ is  being sponsored by the Kiwanis Club. The members supported the idea enthusiastically 1.  Discussion brought out the f61-'  lowing points:  1. Everyone over 15 - years  'Of age shoiild be X-rayed (under 15 there are very few that  cannot be traced from known!  contacts).  2. Over 45 years of age is  now the age group with the  highest incidence of tuberculosis. Consequently it is very  important that all oyer 45'be  X-rayed, both for their own  sake and for the protection of  their  loved  ones.  3. An X-ray at this mobile  unit takes only a short time  end does not require any undressing.  The Kiwanis Club has undertaken to provide transportation to those who cannot  otherwise get to the clinic.  Canvassers were arranged to  cover the area from the Sea-  view Cemetery to Hopkins  Landing. Additional help  would be appreciated.

As a result of an increase in  population, the most common  of all questions is: Where are  they all living? A few men in  Gibsons may provide the answers by building or importing  houses by barge.  Walt and Bob Emerson are  enterprising men. They each-  bought a wartime house to  rent and jointly, bought one  to sell. Wally Peterson anfi  Harry Smith bought one whick  they moved up to the Fletcher  Road to sell.  The   houses  were   delivered,  to the beach area of the   BaF  last Friday.      A. E.    Ritchoy.  hauled    the   houses    off   the  barge toi a large lot subdivided  to make room    for    both    of  them* The third    house    was  pulled up to Bob    Emerson's  beach propertyi  k.    The houses are  really nice,  compact little homes, complete  with^ tw,o -bedropnis,    kitchen,  living room and 3-piece bathroom.  It there were 50 or 100 ol  these houses delivered to Gibsons, it is n�� exaggeration, to  say that within 48 hours there  would be occupants signed up  to live in all.  While they, were towing the  houses; people were stopping  Walt and Bob on the road, asking if they were for rent.  It is expected others may organize, to do the ��� same, anfi.  make investments in housing  in Gibsons. They woudl hav��  no trouble in renting or selling. Etmpty houses in Gibsons  are as hard to find as hen!s  teeth.  Dog licenses  are necessary  Cpl. Morrison of the RCMP  advises that whether one lives  in the Village of Gibsons or  outside of it, it is necessary to  have a dog license.  If the dog owner is resident  in Gibsons, and pays the Village dog license, the provincial  one is not required. Otherwise the dog must be licensed  under the Provincial regulations. This may: be done  through the local RCMP office.  The funds accumulated  through the dog licenses make  a Sheep Protection Fund. This  is used to recompense owners  of sheep for losses of sheep  killed by  unidentified dogs.  Licenses are: for male dogs,  $1;  and' females,  $2.  Bowen Island trip  Those Seehelt Board, th-  Trade members and invited  guests who intend! to take the  trip toi Bowen Island on the  afternoon of Monday, June 6  are requested to get in touch  with Mr. Steve Howlett at Seehelt 100 before 10 a.m. Friday.  This is to allow Union  Steamships to provide necessary transportation. Members  and guests are expected to be  at Hopkins Landing before 3  p.m. June 6 when the boats  will leave. Union Steamships  will be host to the party on  Bowen Island.  WILLISTON NOT   COMING  Owing to the fact Mr. Ray  Williston, provincial minister  of education will not be able  to speak at the PTA meeting  ��� June 7 efforts are being made  to find another speaker for-  the meeting.  Mr. Williston informed the  PTA that as he had been delegated to take part in a special  flight  to  Amsterdam  SECHELT INCORPORATION  ArticleTwo  ������-.v  ':�����'���  He was a prominent citizen  and' Welj kniciym to many people both on the Peninsula and  in fields afar, - "'���'.-..-^ ..''.'���  His name-^���Magistrate Andy  Johnston. Some people will be  surprised but "he was a dashing young man and in some respects still is a dashing young  man if you , remain on the  right side of the law.  PURSE FOUND  A child's red zippered. plastic coin purse has been turned  in to The Coast News.  In last week's article we attempted to explain in general  terms some of the reasons  why incorporation of the Seehelt area would be desirable.  This week/ we will discuss  some of the financial aspects  of the proposal.  To begin with, the proposed*  area is as follows: The east  boundary will be the west  boundary of the Seehelt Indian reserve, .from the Seehelt  wharf to Porpoise Bay. The  north ��� boundary will follow  the foreshore of Porpoise Bay  . to the line between Bill Anderson's and Dr. Elvin's property. The west boundary follows  this line, south and comes out  on.the highway about 150 yds.  west of'the Gordon property.  The south boundary is, of  course, the foreshore at Seehelt. This area comprises approximately 575 ocres.  The revenue available to a  Village is comprised of the  following: (a) General land  and improvement \ tax which  would..be payable to the Village rather than the Provincial Government as at present.  (b) Per capita government  grant as presently paid to all  municipalities in lieu of the  former share of the S.S.&M.A.  Tax and JMfotor Vehicle Licenses., (c) In lieu of direct taxes  on property, B.C. Telephone  Co. pays 2 percent of its annual revenue and B.C. Power  Commission pays 3 percent,  (d) Sundry municipal levies  such as trade licenses and  building permits.     v  The provincial assessor has  supplied the committee with  the current assessment roll;  the value of improvements is  $355,995. Based on the present  10 mill levy on 100 percent of  land value and 75 percent of  improvement value this will  produce $5,209.15 in taxes  which is the exact amount  which will be paid into the  Provincial Treasury this year  and if we incorporate would  be paid toi the Village.  The population within the  proposed boundaries is conservatively estimated at 400 persons. The new grant is $14 per  capita producing a total grant  of $5,600. Figures on public  utilities tax and miscellaneous  revenue have    been    obtained  from the B.C. Power Commission and the Village of Gibsons and these revenues are  estimated at $700 and $800 respectively.  A summary of the probable  revenue is as follows:  : (a) General tax, $5,209.15.  (b) Per capita grant, $5,600.  (c) Utilities tax, $700.  (d) Misc. revenue including  trade licenses, $800.  Total, revenue, $12,309.15.  Village expenses have been  estimated and are divided into - the following major classifications, (a) Fire protection;  (b)*Street lighting���30 300-watt  units strategically placed within the Village are contemplated; (c) Secondary road maintenance���this includes gravelling, grading and ditching to  keep the roads in somewhat  better condition than now. It  is assumed that major work  wouloV be dene by contract and  routine work by hired men  and equipment. It is not expected that the Village would  need to purchase expensive  equipment or maintain men  on staff year round: (d) Administrative salaries��� a clerk  would   be     required    perhaps  three days a week to.prepare  tax rolls, issue licenses and  permits, etc.; (e) General administrative expense ��� this  would include indemnities for  five Village Commissioners,  stationery, postage, light, heat,  phone and rent; (f) Miscellaneous expense would include  such items as donations, insurance, etc.  Fire protection was estimated at $1,500 and is based on  an estimate by the Volunteer  Fire Brigade. It compares fairly well with Gibsons fire  costs. Street lighting costs  based on 30 units total $1,100,  this figure being supplied by  B.C. Power Commission. Secondary roads maintenance  costs of $2,000 are based on  going rates for hire of graders  and trucks t0 maintain present  roads in reasonable repair.  New road construction is not  contemplated at the moment.  Administrative salary, is estimated at $1,200 which should  suffice for part-time services  of a clerk. General administrative expense is estimated at  $1,200 of which $500 would  be Commissioners' indemnity.  The balance of $700 for gener  al office expense is based on  Village of Gibsons annual  statement for similar expense.  Miscellaneous expenses are estimated at $400 and are also  based on Gibsons figures.  A summary of the probable  expenses is as follows:  (a) Fire protection, $1,500.  (b) Street lighting, $1,100.  (c) Secondary roads    maintenance, $2,000.  (d) Administrative    salary,  $1,200.  (e) General    administrative  expense, $1,200.  (f) Miscellaneous, $400.  Total, $7,400.  The surplus of revenue over-  expenditure of approximately  $5,000 as shown by the above  figures should ensure that the  proposed Village would remain financially solvent at  least and should also serve to  allay any fears that taxation  increases would be needed. In.-  fact, it could be made out that  tax decreases are entirely feasible.  In the third and final sifM-  cle next week we will outfisae  the necessary steps lesdiagtto  incorporation and the pia-ns-ySf  the Committee. 2 Coast News June 2, 1955.

Those able to diagnose what the specific section of  the Village Municipalities Act outlines must be left wondering why so many words were used to say so little.  Generally speaking legislation comes as the result  of careful study of a situation by people competent to  judge what is best to do under the circumstance involved.  Usually after the legislation becomes law there is always  the "what does it mean" problem.  v This applies to clause five of sub-section one, section  95 of "the Village Municipalities Act. It starts out by stating  every retail merchant shall be assessed each six months, a  sum not exceeding $20 multiplied by the number of distinctive, lines of merchandise carried. Then it.states Commissioners may classify retailers by character or extent of  business, or. the number of lines carried or, by both methods.  It would appear so far that the ground has been covered forwards and backwards. Now .comes a sideways approach, it reads: And (the Commissioners) may determine  what shall constitute a distinctive line of goods, wares or  merchandise. This throws the field wide open to Village  Commissioners so why worry about the previous definitions.  A simplified reading of the clause could read that  Village Commissioners may assess up to a maximum $20  trade license for every* line carried by a retailer and  that the Village Commissioners may determine what is a  distinctive line of goods, wares; or merchandise.  Lawyers might call the above version ail, over simplification. Maybe it is but in action that is what the clause,  boils down to. It would be interesting to have a complete  list pf the various interpretations Village Commissions of  British Columbia have read out of this clause. Some would  really be out of this world.  How to assess an equitable business tax is a problem  ��f first magnitude to those- handling such affairs. Under  the present law there is unfairness. One merchant carrying  one line of goods pays one license and he incidentally has  a good turnover. Another merchant to make ends meet,  carries various lines. He pays numerous trade licenses and  may be fortunate if he breaks even..Yet he the struggling  merchant striving to service a community pays more in  trade licenses than the successful man with one line of  goods. It does not make sense.  To suggest those wrestling with the retailer license  problem have not discovered weaknesses in the legislation  would be foolish With so many retailers throughout the*  province and so many Village Commissions operating under  the act, somewhere there will be a vigorous protest against  certain clauses. So if anyone has a useful solution to offer  The Coast News will publish it and pass it on to the proper  authority.  31 years of service  Thirty-one years of service  to Gibsons and surrounding  communities as telephone operators closed for Harry and.  Lou Winn, when they retired  on May 12.  v When the Dominion Telephones and. Telegraphs, in  answer to the demand for  communications service in the  area in 1924, wanted an office  space and an operator, the  Winn sitting room was made  av ai 1 a b 1 e , and the Winns  argreed to learn the business.  From then on, there has not  teen a dull or an idle moment  for  either Harry or  Lou.  At first, the telephone facilities were a small box affair,  and two sets of plugs, set up in  the corner of the living room.  The area served was from Las-  queti Island t0 Rainy River.  There were about 35 telephones in the whole area.  In addition to .tending the  switchboard, the Winns ��� ��� managed to keep their home and  garden, and raised their two  sons. Mrs. Winn, in calling  people for the telephone, used  to roll the youngest in-a blanket and start out delivering  the messages/beginning with  the farthest point and working  back toward- the office.  Later', as the local telephone  .customers became more numerous in the immediate area, a  megaphone was added to the,  equipment, by means of which  recipients of calls through the  office might be notified.  Harry took on the job of  transmitting telegrams by  phone through the Seehelt office.  More equipment was added  to the Winn living room. Harry built an addition by plosing  in* and extending the porch.-  The new office was built in  -3949, and no lnger was the  clatter of bells a part of the  24 hour day in the Winn  household. Harry' and Lou  went on shift, and more operators were added to the staff.  Now the Gibsons office, operated as a part of the B.C.  Telephones, is a two-position  setup, with seven operators.  On Harry's retirement, Miss  Kennedy became the local representative and chief operator  for the B.C. Telephones in the  Gibsons area.  Miss Kennedy is well known  as agent for the Dominion  government's Telegraph and  Telegraph service on the .upper part of the Peninsula, in  the Seehelt office. She held  this position for about nine  years, and for the past year  was agent and operator for  the Canadian Telegraphs, stationed at Seohelt. Her home  is on the Upper Road near  Roberts Creek.  There have been many  emergencies handled through  the years by Harry and Lou  Winn, extra services given, extra work and heartaches endured. One of .the highlights  of this extra service was the  handling of reports on all  planes flying over the area  during the last war. All planes  were reported by the various  operators and toll-stations,  and calls funnelled to Vancouver through the Gibsons office. This was a 24-hour service.  The doctor, ambulance, taxi  and . fire services, travelling  members of parliament, business people, and just ordinary  folks, have all had special services from the Winns which  will not soon be. forgotten.  JOINS RED CROSS  Claude Joboin, president of  Trades and Labor Congress of  Canada, has been appointed to  the central council of the Canadian Red Cross Society. This  is the controlling body of the  Red Cross, composed of representatives from all over the  Dominion. The appointment  was announced by Leslie G.  Mills, chairman of the council.  FROZEN FLUBDUB  BY  L.S.J.  The brilliant picture of a  young housewife with that  dainty touch of flour on the  forearm and a shining row of  dentures decanting a mixture  into a very impressive electric  stove brought On some  thoughts of pancakes I have  known.  In an exhuberant moment  not far past I had bought an  electric waffle iron due entirely to a delectable looking  ad illustrating a late evening  interlude after the theatre  and showing a group in diadems and dress suits intently  watching the hostess twiddling  with this device. While our  category is a long way apart I  ���had visions of myself and the  "little old" arriving back from  our local movie and with gay .  abandon waffling a waffle.  Now I do not take a back  seat and am no shrinking violet when it comes to making  hot cakes, but pan is not hot,  and. "hot" is not waffle, as I  ���found t0- my regret. The mixture I had put in the iron  cooked alright but then refused to leave it. I thought the  newness might affect it so  after some very tedious scraping I started over again but  with the same result -and this  made me look at the "receep"  that came with the iron which  threw- an, entirely different  light on the matter.  Thus.resolved we come back  to hot cakes pure and simple  whose acquaintance    I    made  Canoe Pass  in new era  BY  DO  WORTMAN  Last week for the first  time, I was a passenger in a  car driving onto Francis Peninsula.  That doesn't sound very important but to the 300 residents of the area, it is the  beginning of an era���the commencement of progress.  We looked down from the  little wooden bridge into the  channel called Canoe pass, a  rock strewn, barnacle grown  little arm of the sea. This little stretch of water, except  at lew tides, kept the Peninsula so isolated many visitors  accepted it as an island.  A sure way to arouse the ire  of the residents was to refer  to.the plaee as "the island",  when everyone knew it was  not.  Now, one may drive to the  main highway in minutes, instead of taking a boat, disembarking, and transferring to  a vehicle at either Madeira  Park or Garden  Bay.  Now freight may be moved  without four handlings, . and  the hazard of weather. People  mayi now come and go at all  times and seasons. With the  coming of. the road, who  knows how soon the light and  power, more telephones and  other services, will arrive?  Even to an outsider, it is  obvious that Francis Peninsula has put its foot on the first  rung of a ladder. There will be  inroads upon the precious pri-  vacy of the neighborhood, but  perhaps the exchange will be  a  fair one.  This particular little step  taken by the government in  linking areas previously isolated by arms of the sea may be  the first of many similar but  larger moves. Imagine the various parts of Pender Harbour  linked together toy bridges!  What a uniting influence that  would be���without detracting  a single jot-from the lovely  sea side spot it now is.  ARCHIVES   RECOGNITION  Efforts to preserve the personal papers and business records documenting Pacific  Northwest history were given  national recognition recently  at Spokane, Washington, with  the citation of twelve leading  libraries and archives of the  region. The Provincial Archives of British Columbia  was one of twelve institutions  to receive a citation for "Meritorious contributions in the  collecting, preserving and disseminating of North American  forest and forest industries  history," from the American  Forest History Foundation.  Mr. Willard E. Ireland, Provincial Librarian and Archivist, received the certificate  from Mr. Elwood R. Maunder,  Executive Secretary of the  Foundation.  years ago: in R.R. construction  camps. As the years rolled by  I began to notice a certain ap-  prehensiveness In myself when  approaching the first breakfast  at a new job. There were many  like me who made momentous decisions at the first  * mouthful of hot cakes and it  is a certainty "that the tide of  fortune was affected for the  outfit by the texture and flavor of this matitudinal morsel.  It was a sign of well-being  in the setup to see the con-  nosseur take one cake after  another and a generous slab  of butter in between each until there were about four or  six arranged and then deluge  the mass with syrup. At times  there would be a change of  cooks and speculation would  ensue as to who might be coming up and there really were  seme frightening characters  around who would arrive in a  complete state of alcoholic dementia and lo the confusion  and uproar until sobriety returned.  As the camps became more  modern and "getatable," w-c-m-  en came into the picture especially on the smaller outfits  and then we might have romance which also brought its  problems. On the whole though  it was an improvement, After  a good many years we managed  to get a small outfit together  and my experiences with  cooks made life quite interesting at times. During the recent fracas in Europe we really were sorely tried what with  rationing and the scourings  who persisted as being listed  as cooks. It is truly said "That  the Lord sends the meat and  the devil sends the cook."  ��� We had cne here at the  Creek, a Latin who had a  grown up familyv in town, a  group of grown up girls and  Ma and two of the girls would  come up on weekends an<f  each would have, a large suitcase and it was quite some  time before _ I connected this  custom with the fiesta that ensued Saturday night. At the  price of $2.50 per bottle for  this villanous concoction I  was told they waxed fat and  were exceeding glad. The nefarious trade in ration tickets,  the pilferings, the squalid, and  the sordid, were all bedfellows  under the blanket of patriotism.. As Dr. Johnson remarked  long years ago, "Patriotism,  Sir? Is the refuge of scoundrels."  We had a Chinaman at one  camp and it-was this man's  honesty that gave us a yardstick and led, us to some corrections when the variance  was established. If you fired a  cook then you were in a tough  spot as he would surely go out  loaded with excess baggage.  This generally made iip of coffee, tea, butter or sugar. One  chap we had had a box weighing a good 100 pounds and although I was sure of what it  was from information received  there was nothing I could do  about it only with considerable bother" further down the  line. I solved the dilemma at  Kelp Cove while we were  waiting for the boat while  everyone was up in the post  office gabbing I gave one of  my Indian friends $5 to pinch  the box and it was just as I  thought, loaded with tea, coffee, butter and cheese instead  of sugar.  In the aftermath a great  deal of. this foulness was forgotten but after reading later  some of the epics, of the Murmansk and North Atlantic  convoy battles the foul taste is  still with me. No; I don't like  flag wavers. This all came into print because Ma brought  home six frozen waffles:  Hence the title.

He put. up one finger and said  to his wife, "Maggie, lots of  eggs for the boys this morning." Murdo. Stewart.  Editor: Your correspondent  Murdo Stewart requests costs  on a village-operated garbage  collection service. Recent figures in the press would indicate municipalities in B.C. operating such a service were  faced with a budget charge  against taxation of between 11  and 15 mills. Assuming that  we could operate on the lower  rate, our taxes would increase  approximately 70 percent, but  that Would not cover the initial outlay necessary for a  dumping and disposal area,  truck, disposal unit, etc.  Our local garbage collector  (free enterprise) states that he  is not getting the full support  of the people of Gibsons, and  that he may have to cease op  eration; That of course is his  worry, but it may very well  become a real worry for the  ratepayers of Gibsons, Just  for the record, please understand that I hold no. brief for  this operator. As a business  man operating in .'the village,  he is, according to our Sanitation Officer doing a very creditable job and should have  more support from the residents of the Village. The cessation of this service would  pose a problem for the village  as to where the money was to  come from to find. a suitable  dumping ground, and the facilities to destroy the garbage.  This was the sort of p'rob*  lem that faced your Village  Commissions when a small  subsidy was given to this contractor. Ihe subsidy was dictated by need' for economy.  We must face the problem  with realism. Gibsons is no  longer a summer resort and  the growing pains which it ;is  now. experiencing. are 'nothing  to what will, have to be suffered in the hear future. If some  thought, and J. mean serious  thought be given, to the problem now, perhaps we can save  muoh in the way of headaches  and expense in the future.

Murdo Stewart's observation  that there is lots of water pressure at Mr. Burns' estate is  quite right, but that is strictly  the result of .a law propounded  by Sir Isaac Newton. Incidentally, the, water supply question in Gibsons is shortly going to become one of those  headaches you will soon have  to face. Very shortly, the well  is going to go dry and more  money will have to be found  for a further supply.  Fred Crowhurst.

Then we have the ludicrous  decision of the Village Commission to vote on and collect  a tax from a merchant who  was willing to allow space in*  front of his store for the sale  of bedding plants. Perhaps he  collects a small percentage for.  the favor, if so, I know nothing  about this, but I suggest it will  require the sale of an awful,  lot of plants to recover the.  levy against him. I believe  that his action of allowing .the  space was intended as a ser-v  vice to the ' community.

Hail to   Gibsons!  Mrs. E. Lowe.  Editor: Ih regard to your  statement in The Coast News  about the court case of D. Harris and E. J., Myers on May, 6,  your paper stated the magistrate reprimanded Myers for  permitting his stock 'to run. at  lax-ge. The court told D. Harris  that nobody would want to  see his lawn destroyed but as  long as there was no legal  pound or Herd Law that he, D.  Harris would have to fence  until such a time, which he  would like to see socn.. The  magistrate did not reprimand  me and then your paper says  that Myers advised the court-  he would keep his animals off  the highway and confine them  to his own land hereafter. >  never said I would keep my  cattle off the highway as I  could not do that because I  have been renting from Pat  Klein for the last five years  and I cannot get my cattle to  this pasture unless I drive  them on the highway from my  place. I have rented land on  each, side of my property for  pasture and I can't get to the  pasture unless I use the high-'  way, so you can see I could  not have made such a promise.  The magistrate did not reprimand me in court that I know  of. Also I had a talk with  policeman Cummins last week  at Pender Harbour and he  told me that I did not have to  keep my catile on my own  land as this area was still  open range. I want you to.put  this in your paper so I can  drive my cattle down the highway to pasture without being  molested and hollered at by  some people who don't like  cattle.  If you hadn't printed that  abotit the magistrate reprimanding me they would not  molest me. Some sore heads  yell at me, "The judge told  you to keep your cattle off  the highway."        E. J. Myers.

A NEW DEGREE  The other day I was listening on the radio to a broadcaster whose . afternoon programme is intended to amuse  and entertain people, who are  indoors most of the time. He  sings old songs and tells  wholesome jokes; no wonder  the people like him.  This day he did something  unusual: he closed with a little  speech. He said: "My little  jokes are intended to make  you smile. I have always believed that we can serve God  with our laughter as well as  with our tears, and if I can  make you smile, I am rewarded."  I think that any man or  woman who increases the sum  total o the world's happiness  is an ambassador of good will,  and entitled to the gratitude  of all right-thinking people.  When a great man dies people try t0'sum up in a .few  words why he was famous,  and so, when Will Rogers died  a few years ago, he was referred to as "The man who-  made people laugh." It was a  good description of him.  He was born in Oklahoma '  in 1879 and was proud of the  fact that both his parents had  Indian blood in their veins.  Will used to sayi:, "My ancestors didn't corn'e over on the  Mayflower ��� they met the  boat." That was typical of  him. He made jokes about all  kinds of classes of people and,  chiefly about himself. The  words humour and human  spring from the same root;  that is where humour differs  from wit. Wit is smart and  brilliant, but it often hurts;  cuts like a knife.  Will Rogers was a humorist  in the true sense of that word.  He never deliberately set out  to hurt anybody. He once said  "When I die you can put on  my. tombstone that I joked  about every prominent man of  ir^ time but I never ��� met a  man I didn't like." He. loved  people, all kinds of -them, and  he passed through, the world  like a ray of. sunshine: taking  happiness and goodwill wherever he went.  The Oklahoma cowboy humorist made friends all over  the world. He was the best advertisement America had.  Kings, prime ministers, presidents and leading diplomats  respected and loved him.  When he was killed in an airplane crash near Point Barrow  tributes to his worth came in  by hundreds. Eddie Cantor  said what thousands of others  thought: "His life was an example to us all. He was never  involved in any scandals, and  there wasn't an atom of envy  or malice in his system."  He had so much natural  ability that he could have succeeded in a dozen different  ways. He spent his early life as  a cowboy:, and it was his ability to do amazing tricks with  his rope that first brought him.  to public attention. An outstanding quality of his charac-  Coast News June 2, 1955. 3  ���   ���...I- ��� - i .i ��� ������������ ������-,���.. ,  ������-,    ���..,��������� .   ... .._,,^T  ter was humility. As his income and popularity increased  he seemed to become more  humble. He always appeared  puzzled that his performances  were so much enjoyed. He  never made any pretentions  about himself. When admiring  friends praised him he saidr  'Shucks, why all this fuss  about me? I am just an old  cowboy that has had a bit of  luck." When Oklahoma University wanted to give him an  honorary, degree of Doctor of  Letters, he declined. "The only-  degree that would suit me,"  he said "is D.A.���doctor of applesauce."  Of all the stories about Will  Rogers we like this one best.  One evening he took Mrs.  Rogers for an automobile ride,  and they decided t0 stop at a  motion picture theatre. As he  approached the box office he  discovered he had no money  with him. Mrs. Rogers' purse  also was empty. "Let's go  home, Betty," he said sheepishly. And they did.  It so happened that one of  his own pictures was being  used) that evening, and one  word to the management  would have been enough to*  bring him a great welcome.  They would have felt it a great  honor to make him their guest.  But Will wasn't built that  way. He didn't seek favors.  No wonder he was one of the  best loved men of modern  times.

"By doubling its service,  Black Ball is now able to offer  the finest and fastest ferry service ever produced between  the Island and the Mainland,"  Captain Peabody said. "The  large capacity of our vessels,  the frequency of our service,  and our fast turn-around time  made possible by rapid loading and unloading eliminate  any necessity, for reservations."  The modern Chinook and  Kahloke with high overhead  clearances enable both trucks  and cars to drive straight on  and off the vessels without  turning aboard ship. Overhead clearance of the Chinook  is 13 feet, six inches and clearance of the Kahloke is 12 feet,  six inches, both permitting  high freight loads.  Black Ball Line will also  continue its Vancouver - Seehelt Peninsula ferry service  with the MV Bajnbridge making seven round trips daily  including Sundays and holidays between- Horseshoe Bay  at West Vancouver and Gibsons on the .Seehelt Peninsula.  The MV Quillayute will continue Black Ball's Seehelt Peninsula-Powell River ferry service with seven trips daily including Sundays and holidays,  between "Earl Cove and Saltery Bay.

Somewhere in this district a  lady bear is "laughing up her  sleeve" because she has outwitted two men of the human  clan. Unless the tables have  been turned since she was last  seen ambling up the  creek.  Having killed and partaken  of two of Dick Kennett's sheep  and found them excellent, she  returned the follwing night to  finish the carcasses, but Dick  and John Matthews had rigged  up a boobyi trap for her. And  found she was no bcoby.  The idea was to have her  munch on a choice leg, which  would overbalance a tub on  the shed roof nearby, which in  turn would jangle a bell at  the house, which would rouse  the men from their cribbage  game. All of which came to  pass. However, when the guns  were trained in the direction  of the bear, she was disappearing up the creek with a backwards glance and a chuckle.

JOE CHIPPENDALE  The  Being The New  af HOPKINS  OIL rr^xr  The meeting of Gibsons retailers for the purpose of organizing a Gibsons Retail Merchants Association committee  resulted in Sam Fladager of  Thriftee Stores being appointed secretary - treasurer pro-  tem until such time as a proper organization can be set up  with an  elected1 chairman.  The meeting was held May  26 in Danny's Dining Room  when eight persons discussed  the need for some sort of organization for retailers. They  were assisted by H. C. Boul-  ton, the general manager of  the British Columbia Retail  Merchants Association.  Mr. Boulton pointed out that  individual retailers did not  have the same power to express their desires as did an  organization of all retailers  who could present their petitions to whatever body they  intended to approach.  He explained that if governments at the municipal, provincial or federal level did  not obtain advice from organized groups of retailers they  would not know what the retailers desired. Organization  would benefit all merchants  and if for instance they desired to band together f��r the  purpose of arranging closing  hours, days on which to ' remain closed or present    some  Single spray for gat den  As an answer to the prayers of home gardeners confused  by the wide variety of chemicals on the market for control  of insects and diseases, the  agricultural chemicals department of Canadian Industries  (1954) Limited has introduced  a  single   spray  which  is  said  4,100 Scouts  for Jamboree  There will - be well over  4,100 Canadian Scouts, instead of 3,500 as originally  planned, at the 8th World Jamboree at Niagara-cn-the-Lake,  next August.  Representatives of all Provincial Scout Councils, meeting recently in Ottawa, agreed'  to increase the total number  of Canadian Jamboree Troops  from 108 to 126. There are  33 Scouts and three leaders in  a troop.  The "Breaking the Dollar  Barrier ��� Fund" to help Scouts  of other lands to come to the  Sth World Jamboree at Niag-  ara-on-the-Lake next August,  has passed the $35,850 mark.  This means- that some 717  Scouts from "dollar-shy" countries will each have their $30  Jamboree fee paid and twenty  Canadian dollars to spend  while at the Jamboree.       '��  Canada's Scouts are grateful  to the many service clubs, ethnic groups, business firms, other organizations and' individuals wh0 helped make the  drive a success.  Thanks* to Ekton's of Canada  the Boyi Spouts will have a  motion picture record cf the  8th World Jamboree at Niavg-  ara-on-theLake next August 18  to 28. Eatons have commissioned Chetwynd Films Ltd. of  Toronto to make a 16 mm.  sound and color film of the  Jamboree story.  SCOTT'S SCRAP BOOK  to control most insects and  diseases commonly found in  Canadian gardens.  Known as the all-purpose  fruit and garden spray, the  product contains two powerful  insecticides ^���  malathion  and  methoxychlor and the new  miracle fungicide '��� Captan.  This triple barrelled combination is capable of giving long  lasting control of fruit and  vegetable insects like aphids,  plum curcurlios, cherry fruit  flies, leafhoppers, potato beetles, scale insects, apple maggots, peach pysylla, grape  berry moths, hornworms, codling moth  and   caterpillars.  Diseaess controlled include  scab of apple and' pears,' leaf  spot of cherries, sooty blotch,  fly speck, anthracnose of cur-  curbits and tomatoes, black  spot of roses, early and late,  blights of potates and tomatoes.  According to the manufacturers, the spray is made up  by mixing one pound of the  new material thoroughly in 8  gallons of water or 12 level  tablespoonsful in one gallon.  It should be applied as a medium fine spray to cover .all  surfaces of foliage and fruit.  " In treating fruit trees, application should commence as  soon as leavesrbegin to open  in the spring and continued  at ten day. intervals (more often if weather is wet) until  the fruit is -well developed.  It should not be applied during the blossom period.  The triple barrelled    threat'  to  insects  and plant    diseases,  will also be  available' in dust  form packaged in   a dust gun  ready for  instant use.  The present development of  the civilized world is probably  due more to the fact that man  can record his thoughts and  ideas on paper than on any  other single  factor.  By R, I SCOTT.

Matters  given a general going over  were purchases made outside  .Gibsons, trade licenses, a shop-  in-Gibsons campaign, credit  ratings and other  items.  Mr. Boulton said he would.  be available, or some other  member of the organization, to  assist at a later date in the organizing of a Gibsons Committee of :the "Retail Merchants  Association. He outlined the  benefits that could be obtained  from joining the association,  such as health insurance covering proprietors and employees, an information service on  merchandising generally and a  service which would let them  pass on to the B.C. head office any of their problems.  "We have the experience of  more than 48,000 merchants  across Canada to call upon and  I can assure you the Retail  Merchants Association has  quite a backlog of information. Somewhere along the  line a problem in Gibsons ;has  been faced at some other point  and1 we can pass on to you the  benefit of that experience  -from ur files," Mr. Boulton  advised the meeting. As an example he explained his office  had a file three inches thick  on the problem of store closing hours. *  Mr. Fladager has announced  that those interested in the  work of the Retail Merchants  Association as it concerns Gibsons merchants should get, in  touch with him for further information.

The result of this decision is  a scheme known as "Silver  Dollar Mondays." .  Every Monday a- member of  the Safety Committee asks the  employees pertinent questions  on safety. The first five individuals, who answer a question  correctly are each awarded a  silver dollar.  A second plan provides "free  shows and prizes for employees when accident-free periods  are recorded.  Che plan works this way. If  a period of 25 days accumulates, without an accident being recorded, everyone at the  plant sees a free show at the  company's expense.  A period of 50 accident-free  days means another free show,  and also, a drawing for seven  prizes.

Some people think I qualify in  that respect so here goes.  The Merchants just about  upset Port Mellon again, losing a close game 3-1 last  Thursday. On Tuesday Wilson  Creek upset the iawred Firemen but the game is to be replayed as you will read, later  on.

Wilson Creek  gave me my second correct,  prediction by downing Seehelt  7-4. Thanks, fellas.  Among the players and fans  last week the center of discussion was the one-month suspension handed to Jimmy Shutz  of Wilson Creek for playing  without being properly signed.  The story goes that he played  one game with Seehelt against  the Merchants and then went  to Wilson Creek.

Shutz or the managers of the teams involved.  To me the fault lies with  the managers of the teams involved for not using the; correct procedure in signing. It  is not up to the individual  player t0 look after this..That  is what team managers are for.  I think the manager or managers, as the case may be, are  the ones who should be; suspended for a month and the  player shouldi .only receive a  minor suspension of three  games or at most two weeks.  I have always given strong  support to the idea of the  league operating exactly as the  BCASA lays it do.wn in its  constitution, but this deal just  doesn't seem  right  to me.  In a league in which, all  teams are hard up for: ball  players of as good'a calibre as  Jimmy Shutz, a mix-up:y like  this can do harm to the players  as^well as the fans.        | - v  One more thing is, that if  I remember the rule book correctly, replays of faulty! games  such as this are not called for  and the two teams that are the  victims of this shomozzle, in  this case the ' Merchants and  the Firemen, v should be awarded the games by default.
