Array Published   in   Gibsons, B.C.  May 26, 1955.  Volume 9, Number 21  V!NC!.^L I  Provincial Library,  Victoria, B. C.  Serving the Growing?  Sunshine Coast  From  Squamish  to Pender Harbour  ELPHINSTONE    HIGH  Located at  Gibsons  the  Elphinstone Junior Senior  High  School is a school    of    which  District No. 46 may well    be  proud.      Situated on the    Se-  cheit Highway about one mile  west of the wharf it was buiit  with    facilities    for    teaching  Home    Economics,    Industrial  Arts and all other subjects included in the modern curriculum. In addition to a combined  auditorium,    and     gymnasium  the school has five classrooms,  a library, a science room, two  industrial arts rooms,    a    student council room and a home  economics room.  This Nschool was planned in  1950 for inclusion in the 1951  by-law and provides for secondary education in grades 7  to 12 for all students living in  the district bounded by Port  Mellon in the East to Seehelt  in the We^tr/bus transportation  being provided for the outlying: districts.  The number of pupils requiring y education in this  school in 1951 totalled 139 and  the; school as planned and. built  appeared to be quite large  enough to take care of the requirements at that time with  reasonable provision for normal increases in enrolment.  Nearly five years have now  elapsed since we proudly saw  the new building taking shape  and such has been the increase  in school population that the  registration at the beginning  of the present school year  totalled 267 as compared with  139 in 1950, or, an increase of  almost 100 percent *in>. five  years. As to the future trend  projections made by the Board  indicate; that by 1960-61 the  enrolment will haye, reached  the alarming total of 421..  At the present time the efficiency of this school is being  ^everely^jiandk  overcrowded condition and the.'  auditorium stage and the students council room are being  used as temporary class rooms.  The Board has recognized  for some time that a new  building program was inevitable and as further, delay is impossible it has included in the  proposed new by-law a provision for enlarging the school by  an addition comprising three  . new classrooms, an additional  science room, an office, industrial arts and home economics  rooms, a lunch room and a  study hall.  The plans for extensions  tfiave been submitted to the department of education with  all pertinent information and  facts and they have been approved by that department for  government grant. It now only  remains for the taxpayers to  support the by-law when it is  submitted for their approval  in the near future.  H. C.

In spite of the extra ferry,  the George S. Pearson,  brought into service by, thfe  Blackball Lines, as many as  146 cars were strung along  Gibsons streets at one time.  The line up at Horseshoe Bay  was still bigger, with holiday  makers tripping to the Seehelt  Peninsula and to Nanaimo.; v  On Sunday and. Monday,  afternoon, the dock at Gibsons  was crowded with foot passengers.

'/Was  :vhow Magistrate^ Jphh^an':,^far ~i  cribed the. Annual Magistrates'  Convention attended irr Vancouver by magistrates from all  over the province.  From May 16 to 18, sessions  were held in Hotel Vancouver.  The magistrates were addressed, by prominent lawyers, jurists, police magistrates, RCMP  officials, and the attorney-gen-  ���eral and deputy attorney-general of British Columbia.  One of the highlights was a  discussion of the revised Criminal Code of Canada, and the  new delegation of powers to  certain magistrates, of whom  Mr. Johnson is one.  Sechelt's May Day was definitely the best ever held from  the first notes of the Navy  Cadet band on the street in  the morning to the final goodnight after the May Queen's  ball.  The weather was beautiful,  showing to great advantage  the costumes of the queens  and their entourages and the  floats, many of them masterpieces, remained' intact, without dampened flower or  streamer, to the last.  Good organization and patient planning by the various  committees of the Seehelt PTA  were evidenced by the smooth  running and handling of the  many events of the day.

Power Commission has  authorized $102,682 for distribution system work' this year  in the Seehelt power district.  The money has been appropriated to various capital additions, improvements to existing facilities and general* maintenance.  An authorization for the  spending of $17,000 for a power line extension to the Twin  Creek area taking in Hopkins  Landing and the Y Camp has  also been announced.  against move  Hopkins Landing _ Water  Users' Community found only  one supporter for the idea of  joining the proposed Gibsons  Improvement District at its  meeting last Friday. An overwhelming majority rejected  the idea because the Hopkins  area has not, in their opinion,  enough water to be effective in  fighting fires. They felt that at  their distance from Gibsons,  the time element, in getting  the Volunteer Fire Brigade to  a fire, in spite, of its willingness, placed them at a distinct  disadvantage from the start.  At this meeting, Capt. Gordon Hopkins, with his committee, was returned to office.  It was decided by the Water  Users to install an additional  water tank.  BOWEN ISLAND TRIP  Seehelt Board of Trade has  been invited to hold its    June  6 meeting at Bowen Island.  An invitation has been extended to the board by Ted  Ehright, Union Estates superintendent. Boats will pick'up  those members who desire to  attend. The meeting which  will include a cocktail party  will be somewhere in the vicinity of 3 p.m.  SECHELT INCORPORATION  ARTICLE NUMBER ONE  This article is the first ��� of  three to be ; printed in The  Coast   News,   and   intended  to present to the people of Seehelt the findings of the Incorporation Committee of the Seehelt Board of Trade.  This committee has been investigating some form of municipal organization for the Seehelt area for some years and  had originally considered an  Improvement District as being adequate for the needs of  the area. The district is growing rapidly and has expanded  considerably in the last year.  It is now the considered opinion of the Committee that a  Village Municipality would be  more advantageous.  That some form of incorporation must eventually be undertaken if the community  is  to grow in an orderly manner  ��� cannot be denied. It is generally conceded that communities must be planned and  growth regulated as without  such planning and regulation  an area can become unsightly  to the detriment of existing  properties and the discouragement of further expansion.  Some of the duties of a local  governing body would be the  provision of the following services:  (1) Town planning to provide zoned, business and residential areas to protect individual property owners.  (2) Fire protection and the  maintenance and improvement  of our existing fire brigade.  (3) Street lighting.  (4) Maintenance and im-  provement of secondary roads.  (5) Sanitation��� The regulation of sewage , and garbage  disposal to protect the public*,  Some rumors and misinformation have been circulating  the district and with this ini  mind the following points are  listed:  (1) It would appear that all  the necessary services such as  fire protection and street  lighting can be provided by  the current levels of taxation  as imposed by the Provincial  government. An increase in  tax levels would only come  about as a result of demands  for increased services by the  ratepayers.  (2) School taxes now collected by the provincial government and these would not be  affected in any way by incorporation.  (3) The    responsibility    for  the maintenance and repair of  the arterial highway    through  Seehelt is and would remain  the responsibility of the Department of Public Worka  (4) The waterworks presently pwned and operated by Seehelt Waterworks Limited,  would continue under their  management until such time  as it might be mutually beneficial for the Village to take  over the service.  (5) It is considered highly  unlikely that any Village  Council would undertake such  expensive projects as road  paving, sidewalks, or sewage  systems.  Next week's article will  give some of the figures en  anticipated revenue and expenditure of the proposed incorporated  area.  and  kept that section of    the  celebration   moving.  The many amateur photographers on the scene could net  have had a better day for collecting pictures.  The children's sports drew  crowds 6f enthusiastic watchers, as the young racers really  dashed. Fun in the potato and  spoon races and in the three-  legged races was hilarious.  The ball game was a real  wide open, hard slugging affair, which while ending' in a  one - sided score, provided  much fur* and plenty of oppor-  tunity for vocal support from  the side lines.  The May Day committee did  an excellent jo*b. Officers for  the committee were Mrs. D. E.  Smith, chairman; Mrs. Sam  McKenzie, secretary; and Mrs.  Edna Wakefield, treasurer.  Mrs. C. Peterson represented  the Ladies' Auxiliary to the  Canadian Legion. Fred Mills  and Harry Billingsley were Se-  This man is known the length  of the Sunshine Coast and  beyond.

On May 20, in the Irvings  Landing Hall, parents and  friends of the local school children shared a happy observance of Victoria Day.  After an introductory  speech from their teacher,  Mrs. Seymour, the pupils stood  smartly facing the flag as all  sang "God Save the Queen."  Papers, well read by three  senior girls, setting forth the  ideals of loyalty and public  service of Canada and the  Commonwealth, were followed by the singing of O Canada  and then by two motion picture reels shown by Mr. E. W.  Christmas.  The first, of Coronation  scenes in the Abbey and along  the processional route, provoked the exclamation of a  small girl, as the royal coach  moved by: "She waved to me!  The queen waved at me!" Pro-  ceeds from tea served at  flower-decked tables, and a  sale of home cooking, brought  the net total of the school  children's earlier drive for the  Junior Red Cross to $35.  LOGGER DIES  Victor Paul Lindstrom,  about 30, a logger, died Monday about 7.30 p.m. as the result of his falling off the Lady  Beth in Narrows Arm.  Einar Mellesdal saw what  had occurred and dived after  the man in deep water and.  hauled him out.  Efforts to revive Lindstrom  were unsuccessful despite re-  susication methods used over a  period of three hours.  An inquest will be held Friday at Seehelt  CHOIR MEETS SUNDAY  Peninsula Choraliers will  meet for a practice at Gibsons  Parish Hall Sunday at 7.30  p.m. in preparation fr their  concert at Port Mellon. This  concert will be in aid of the  United Nations Pilgrimage  sponsored by the IOOF Lodge  to help two boys take this  once-in-a-lifetime trip.  chelt Board of Trade representatives.

Fred Mills, suitably attired  in a -top hat, coat- tails and ������ra.  moustache was parade marshal  and gracefully accepted the  plaudits of the crowd by raising his topper at various intervals and smiling benignly at  one and all.  The North Vancouver Sea  Cadets band, followed by Sea  Cadets and Wrenettes were  quite smart at the head of the  parade and the martial music  by the band livened up proceedings considerably. The  ceremonials they performed at  the crowning ceremony were  also well done. The parade  moved slowly through the Village Centre, then up the waterfront road to the Indian Reserve Community Park.  The platform in the -park  which had been put into posi-  tion by the Seehelt Rod and  Gun lub and decorated effectively by the Seehelt Fire  Belles was graced by the finest  assortment of queens, present  and past, along with their retinues that Seehelt has ever  seen.

The Sunshine Coast is due for a period of expansion.  More families will be moving' in. This means more trade for  Bcal shops, more work for garages and necessary services,  municipal and otherwise.  Some of the present facilities are big enough to allow  firr expansion hut others are not. More homes will mean  more services laid on and there is "a water situation that  requires clearing up. Lack of pressure at.some points is a  handicap. It is probable that this particular situation can  $& cleared up.  With this in .mind there is the thought some form  ���� planning would be a sensible thing to do.' Within thej  asext year it is possible 50 families might desire to move  to some place close to Port Mellon where most of the breadwinners would work.     Where can they go?  Our real estate men are naturally on the job of  serving- to sell what property they have listed with them.  This would mean scattered settlement. It would also mean  increased costs to the village1 commission and the B.C.  Power Commission to lay on services.  Is.there the possibility of a block of land being prepared under some general scheme? On this block of land  ?he village commission could lay water lines, the -Power  Commission could concentrate on needed. wiring a*id the  Toads department of the Village Commission could either  jmt in a road or improve one already there. . ,  There are those people who will pooh-pooh such an  33ea-but.it might be profitable just the same.

Possibly the Board of Trade could stir things a bit  ���fir at least have hearty discussion. It would bring out  same pros and cons and start a general debate which,1  might lead to something definite. Today, it is difficult format, family man 'to find a place in which- to live in the Gibsons  area. Are we missing an opportunity?  PAST  WOOD  MASTERS  (BY L.S.J.)  The occasional man one  meets in getting a livelihood  that makes a cult or fetish of  artistry in wood, is a continuance of a line of men- that go  well back into the mists of  time. Traces of prehistoric  wood culture are found all  over the.earth in tools, weapons, and artifacts' of worship  that are fairly comparable  with medieval and modern art.  Nowadays one sees ail manner of arty folk in woodsy furniture, roots off the beaches,  tree burls cr mishapen branches. These are, not for me or  what I have in mind, the chaps  who were "ships in bottles"  men, masters of parquetry,  that would have wood from  every clime in it.  One chap I knew quite well  worked on a teak walking  stick culled from the wreck  of the SS Beaver and with a  jacknife inserted 36 pieces of  alien wood in the handle. You  see what I mean. This old  sailorman had made many  trips where the trade winds  blow steady night and day  and his relish in telling of  carving and handwork in the  lee of the focsle head and  never a hail for changing sail  was yarning "par excellence.  ,'l The chap that concerns us  here however was never a  sailor. His forbears were Polish farmers who thrived en  ,pigs, potatoes and rye. Our  man worked on, the farm and  when winter came took a  team of horses to the woods  exactly as did his counterpart  in Eastern Canada years ago.  The difference was that the  Polish woods were in the main  white oak. The horse and  handwork were full of ingenuity as they loaded the logs on  narrow gauge railroad by- a  Spanish windlass affair on the  log itself. The logs were  brought to a large yard and  when enough logs were yarded the crews moved out of  the woods and squared each  log with a broad axe. They  were then kept under' cover  where the buyers, mostly  Frnchmen from the Bay of  -Biscay, could make their selection.  This was my friend's start  in the logging business and he  really knew wcod and wood  tools. In 1917 at the age of 16  he was conscripted for the  Austrian army and served  with them , outside Premsyzl  where he was captured by the  Russians who then issued him  a Russian uniform. This enforced co-operation gave my  friend the idea of getting    to  seme country Where he could  make up his mind without the  help of a bayonet. Strangely  enough he foretold the same  type of co-operation in this  second fracas with the words  "Each kills off half the other  to find out how . easy get  along."  He did some remarkable inside work for me on the house  here and we have had people  from all over the world admire  this unique piece of craftman-  . ship. The job was lining two  rooms with boards of red and  yellow-cedar in random widths  fitted into a geometric pattern  tongue and grooved by hand  and also hand planed. Some  of the moulding was inlaid  with red, cedar strips on yellow cedar and all done with  a wooden plane about ten  inches long.  The modern steel conglomeration of many pieces and  uses would not work as a lot  of the work'was on the bias.  The wooden plane loaned to us  by another, of these wood wizards from Roberts Creek was  at least 150 years old. It had  two. initials neatly marked on  it with) Folkestone  added.  This Polish farmer was  quite at home planking or repairing, boats and he excelled  in building massive sleds for  donkey' engines  and     insisted '  on going up to the woods and  making his own selection of  trees for the jcb. He was an  excellent hi-rigger and there  were never any loose guy  lines or faulty rigging after h��  got through.  The only things he was not  master of were a leg in the  water and a most virulent  temper. Men of his type we  shall not see again, modestly  proud, eager for results, the  pettiness of ca' canny never  sullied their innate decency.  They were - men: Let this be  their epitaph.

Minister Louis S. St.  Laurent in. supporting forest  conservation has made this  announcement through the  Canadian Forestry Association: .  ��� "I am pleased to learn, that  for the fifth consecutive year  the Canadian Forestry Association and its provincial branch-  'es are " sponsoring National  Forest Conservation Week  from May 22 to May 29 next.  "The work of the Association over the years has played  a significant role in stimulating public interest in the protection, development, and wise  use of Canada's forest resources.^  ������"��� -"'I .feeTVcertain.-that this continuing effort of the Canadian.  Forestry Association and its  provincial organizations, to advance the cause of forest conservation, will commend itself  to the people of Canada.  Louis S. St. Laurent,  Prime Minister.  For 30 years the B.C. branch  of the Canadian Forestry Association has been stressing  the need for intelligent exploitation of the forest potential. Through the practice of  conservation our forests have  become a wood farm instead,  of a wood- mine. The onslaughts of fire, insects and  disease are constantly com-  batted and cutting programs  are so managed as to get the  greatest yield from the mature  stand while leaving growing  stock that will develop into  a new forest of equal or even  better quality than its predecessor.  ��.. To a leave a ��� mature forest  quite ..untouched would be as  stupid and shortsighted as to  leave a field of ripe corn un-  har vested.  Conservation practices, properly applied, eliminate waste  cf all kinds and assure the  most efficient    harvesting    of  existing resources ' and their  constant replacment by vigorous new growth.

It was May  2, but the snow was deep in.  the woods,  and    ice    by    the  ��� tracks was unbroken. Small  farm houses stood wetly in .the  muddy fields. The fields are  all ditched for what I'd call  counter-irrigation���to drain off  the ever too prevalent moisture.  No< road signs, no carelessly  abandoned machinery���all as  neat as could be in sodden  spring weather.  After a stop at Riihimaki,  we turned east and came to  Lalite. It's a big town with  much new construction���large  apartment houses for the  workers in machine and cellulose factories. The city hall  is cf the new Finnish perpendicular lines in architecture.  Women and men were standing around drinking in the sun  in front of the city hall, while  a crew of men and women  were lifting the boughs off  flower beds where a few more  daring crocus buds were looking  for light.  Up on a steep hill stood    a  pale green  church and   there"  the stark bitter story    of   the  "Winter War"  when    Finland  was  deprived  of,   of    Karelia  and the southeastern corner of  the country took place. In the  churchyard stood a red granite  heroic sized figure of a woman  in flowing    classical    drapery  reaching out her arm. Around  this  statue in four  concentric  horseshoes were the dark granite  grave  stones  of the    men  who died in that bitter unfair  war. Every village in Finland  has this type of graveyard that  never lets them forget the  dangerous neighbors to the  east. They do not get sentimental about this���no���they  just expose these fields of the  dead to the world's forgetful  attention.  Over this hill is the older  part of the tcwn leading to the  great lake still totally frozen  up. In. late June the excursion  boats will take tourists on  their way to Tofuio, Ouler,  Keine, and Lappland.  Then the fun began. My ability to count in Finnish ends at  two ��� eiksi, kaksi ��� ?? I  wanted some stamps, ai*d until  a pencil and paper were produced, I might as well have  been talking Sanskrit. The  moon-faced girl was all eagerness and courtesy, but no  Swedish aided."  Later came the feeding of  the inner man. I tried two restaurants before I finally found  a very modern trim hotel. I  told the head waiter I wished  lunch. He brought me a menu  in mellow' Finnish.  But I knew the word Strog-  anof, and assumed the ether  word meant beef. It did. I  managed a fair lunch, the  waitresses smiled innocently  when I asked for anything,  , with no knowledge of what I  wished. Smiles are good currency anywhere..  purely a friendly    atmosphere  without articulation.  My luck simply would    not  bold.  All the  next  morning I *  spent at the home of Finland's  great    modern    liberator,    the  late Baron  Mannerheim.  There I was lectured to, in  flawless Swedish. After lunch  in the nearby ravintcla (restaurant) I got into a taxi and  asked to be taken to the airport (lentoasema, in Finnish)  and held up my S.A.S. ticket.  He replied something and  took me to the nearby air terminal. He lost a better fare,  and* I gave up. Once more I  was in, the hands of a monolingual Finn in a quasi-bilingual land.  Rain began, a thorough slow  very wet northern rain. At '  the airport, after clearing customs and. money control, a  strange flight was called, in  Finnish, Swedish and English,  "Will the passengers on aero-  fiat to Leningrad and Moscow  kindl3" proceed to their aircraft."  ,,,,Out on the runway stood a  DC-4 with the CCCP and flag  of the Soviet Union. Three  men and a woman scuttled  through the rain into the  plane, with all its metal tarnished. The engines roared and  H-started down the runway.  Inside a passenger frantically  waved a blue handkerchief or  F  GREAT  HBERTAR  fl  Another walk,  and    another scarf. There'was no. one seeing  train back to Helsinki. A boy him off���no one to respond. In-  of perhaps 15    went    through side all of us waiting for   the  the car a few times, admiring plane to Sweden    were    quiet  It was less than 200 years ago  that bold students of the basis of  human liberty were telling citizens  of English-speaking countries some  of the essential truths on which our  freedom system of life has been  founded.  Edmund Burke in"1784 was challenging England with these words:  "The people never give up their liberties but under some delusion."  Benjamin Franklin wrote "They  that can give up essential liberty to  obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." .  And James Madison, in 1778 in at  speech in Virginia, said: "I believe  there are more instances of the  abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power ..than, by  violent and sudden usurpations."  1  my camera. He'd grin and  point. I murmered "Amerika."  He nodded, pointed to the  camera arid said "Hollywood."  You can guess the connection  if any. We became quite good  and serious as this plane, airborne, turned east to never  never land. In another ten  minutes I turned my winged  way back to the land where.I  could reject or be rejected by  BRITISHlCOLUMBIA  FEDERATION OF TRADE & INDUSTRY  friends before I changed to the    the spoken and comprehended  express   at  Riihimaki.

Well,* I hope you'll pardon me for I've got a couple  of beefs:  First, I believe garbage disposal should be carried out by  the municipality.. I don't believe in free enterprise especially if every so often its  got to have a shot in the arm  to carry on. I mean that any  business should stand on its  own feet or get out, and also  that not one cent of our money  should be given to subsidize  garbage disposal or any other  service.  I'm giving my own view as a  pensioner. First they started  off by charging 25 cents a can  and the last *I asked them to  take was 50 cents and it's going to be the last as far as I'm  concerned for we can't afford  to pay 50 cents every two  weeks or so for a small tin of  garbage and I would like . to  ask Fred Crowhurst how much  it will cost us as taxpayers to  have it done by the municipality and compulsory! for all  property owners to share.  My other beef is this: I've  been a resident in this municipality and paying > taxes for  20 years. When we came here  our twins were approximately  three years old and being  away from home fishing for  months I didn't like the idea  of having two open wells: on  our 1/2 acre so I asked the  commission for water as it was  and still is running in front  .of our property and. comes to  a dead end in front of Sheila  Reid's next door. Dick Cooper  the water maintenance man,  came up and told me I'd be  foolish to have same, for they  couldn't guarantee enough  pressure, especially in the  summer when all the visitors  come.  He opened the hydrant in'  front of Sheila's house and  the stink of the stale water  backing up caused, me to go  ahead and cement one of the  wells on our property and  pipe its water into our kitchen  operating a handpump.  About two; years ago I was  advised by - my doctor in  Shaughnessy Hospital to put  plumbing in our house as I  have a TB condition. Rather  than take the municipal water  I had to go to the added expense of putting in an electric  pump which cost $150 extra.  There is a ��� new pipe on the  Fletcher road at the back of  our property. We still get no  pressure and if ever a fire  starts up our way don't call'  the fire brigade. We have no  pressure.  Sheila Reid is building a  beautiful home next to ours  and I* saw the carpenter trying to wash off the cement  mixer the other day and I  .asked him if that was all the  pressure he could get. Well, I  could almost spit as much.  Mr. Bob Burns I understand  maintains that I never did ask  for water in 1953. Well Mrs.  Stewart ��� can    verify    and    of  course all the    commissioners  have passed away; John Cor-  lett,.Dr. Inglis and Mr.- Cooper,  even Dick is gone but I understand there is lots of pressure  over at Burns estate over hi  the- Headlands.  I asked Mr. Williams, the  health inspector two weeks  ago t0 take a sample of my  well water and he has advised  me that it's contaminated, possibly owing to its not being  cleaned" out fOr.15 years, but  I've had a trout there for 10-  12 years. He was thriving before I killed him when I threw  a bottle of bleach in last" Saturday to clean it out. What  the results will be now I don't  know, but I asked Mr. Williams to take another sample  to be analyzed. I certainly  don't want to pay to hook up  to a system where you've got  to wait to flush your toilet if  your neighbor below is flushing his. Murdo Stewart.  Editor: May I use your columns to voice the thanks the  pupils of Elphinstone High  School give to their friend,  Mrs. Ran Vernon. This busy  housewife and mother takes  time from her duties and voluntarily spends many hours  with us in music periods.  She succeeds in getting such  lovely music from small bodieh  that I am sure she is amply rewarded. However we do want  her to know that we appreciate it very much.  Eileen Glassford.  Efditor: In the last two issues  of The Coast News there were  two letters on building a library and community hall in  Gibsons.. Personally, I think  this would be an . excellent  idea as it would be some place  for the senior citizens to go in  the wintertime. I have been on  Vancouver Island and I saw  every small community had1  a community hall built , and  kept up by the senior citizens.  If we can build tennis courts  for the young fry, surely we  should be able to do something:  for the older people. Today I  was on the wharf and an elderly lady came down to catch  the ferry. There was no place  to.sit down and this lady had  a broken knee so I took her  into my car to wait for the  ferry as the lady could; not  stand there for an hour.  George  Friend.  CHAUFFERS FOR FUN  James S. Thompson, retired  president of the McGraw-Hill  Book Company of New York,  found his life of leisure too  dull. He read of the need for  volunteer Red Cross drivers  in his community and offered  his services. Since that time he  has been kept busy on a variety of motor missions. Asked  how he liked his volunteer job  he replied, "I've never had so  much fun in my life! You also,  by the way, learn a lot about  human suffering which you  never knew existed before."  Lt. Col. E. S. Johnstone of  Madeira Park who is chairman of the St. Mary's Hospital  Committee at Pender Harbour  met with residents of Selma  ��� Park in their Community HalJ  on May 19 to state the case of  St. Mary's Hospital and its  need of funds.  He- said this hospital which  was founded by the Columbia  Coast Mission under Rev. John  Antle in 1930 and operated by  them for 23 years is now our  hospital and operated by St.  Mary's Hospital Society which'  is being incorporated under  the B.C. Societies Act.  Col. Johnstone told of the  capable staff and doctors who  are prepared t0 administer  efficient hospital service to all  patients, A cardiograph machine has been installed and  more modern . instruments and  important anesthetic equipment will be added.  T6 accomplish- this end an  urgent appeal-for funds is being made and it is hoped this  appeal will meet with a-generous ..response. ���    -.-  ���"  If everyone would contribute the hospital could be financed and be able to give ever  increasing���-. medical    facilities.  *  With improvement on the  roads the hospital, will be  more accessible to all.  The audience was so impressed by Col. Johnstone's  sincerity that Mrs. Isabel Gilbert, Mrs. W. Waddell and  Mrs. Charles Fester volunteer.  ed to call on the residents of  Selma Park for contributions.  YOUR  FUND  COD FISHERMEN . . ���  MURDOCH'S  are your  Best Buyers !

The next meeting will be  a garden meeting at Mrs.  Hodgson's on June   21.  Roberts Creek  (BY MRS. M. NEWMAN)  Mrs. S. Fallowes was guest  speaker at the Roberts Creek  PTA on the 18th. Her talk on  children's reading was most  interesting. From her survey  on. the subjesct, Mrsi Fallowes ;  concluded' ihat, in comparison  with time given to other pursuits, a satisfactory number of  hours was spent reading. ... An..  interesting point she brought  out was that generally speaking, boys read better literature  than girls.   .  Twenty-five dollars was  voted for the Scholarship  Fund.  A report of the Dental Conference held in Vancouver on  May 6 was read. Mrs. C. Hil-  liei\ a former resident and  member of the PTA, now liv-  ing near the city* attended the  Conference^ and sent the- ; report.  July 14 is the date set    for  the annual garden  party  ar  tea, and will    be    held    this  year, as usual,    at the lovely  home of Mr. and Mrs. E. Shaw.  Meantime plans are going  ahead for the track meet at  the school on June 4. According to Mrs. A. H. Weal, committee head, pop and hot dogs  will be sold and tea will be  available. Each person must  bring his own lunch. r  Alan White, formerly of  Roberts Creek and now employed by Blackball Ferries,  has successfully passed examinations recently and is now a  captain.

Pleasing indeed were all the  items on the program which  opened with Stratford Kindergarten Ryhthm Band, the tiny  members in their capes and  caps coming right on the beat.  The little pupils of Mrs. Or-  charde charmed all with their  dancing as did the young musicians with piano and violin  selections. Vocal duet by Mrs.  E. Lucken and Mrs. D. * Stock-  well and' the solo by Mrs. B.  Shaw were thorughly enjoyed  also Mrs. L. Plumridge's accordion number. Mrs. Louise  Lang played a duet with daughter Anne, taking the place of  Sharon Stewart who was unable to attend.  The beautiful wreath sent  "in loving remembrance" of  Mrs. F. A. White, by the Roberts Creek friends, was deeply  appreciated by the family,  i Barrie Reeves, .11, received  cuts and broken glasses last  Friday while playing softball  at school. Glass was taken out  of his eye and it is believed no  permanent damage was done.  \ From all quarters come compliments to the Hall board on  the improvements being made  to the Hall.

Another  of your  Public- Health   Services  isfcpiw^iiqipgwp^ BY    GLADYS    McNUTT)  We have previously told  how John Wray moved from  Nelson Island to the Skookum  Chuck in 1903, when he heard  rumors that a cold storage  plant was to be started here.  He left in 1906. The 200 acres  about Co-op Bay were owned  by a Captain Archibald, and  the Garret Brothers were the  caretakers. Captain Archibald  thought the property would  make a summer resort.  George Vaughn, an American, arrived the same year  John Wray left. He and Joe  Silvey, who was married and  had a family, built themselves  cabins in Co-op Bay. They  went hand logging.  Jce Silvey's father, a Portugese, had once lived in the  Bay and fished hereabouts.  George Vaughn mentions  three loggers who became pre-  emptors in Hotham Sound. He  says they were here before he  came. One was Linder who  took up land north of Twin  Falls. Tacket, a Kentuckian,  retired' on land ^toward the  head' of the Sound. He built a  large house cf split cedar and  planted a lot of fruit trees.  Hollingsworth   was    logging  in Hotham Sound probably as  early as 1901.    He chose    the.  bay south of the Falls and called it Granville Bay    for    his  first son. He replaced the first  small house by a larger  one.  Mrs. Hollingsworth had an extensive garden of   which    she  was very proud. Said one old  timer     "Mrs.      Hollingsworth  kept up the social    graces    in  Jervis Inlet."      He has never  forgotten that when invited toi  dinner there, a linen table nap-;  kin lay in  a ring beside    his.  plate.  Between 1907-8 the Archibald place was partly logged  with horses by some Japanese.  Apparently the Garrets had  left, because Walter Wray says ;  "When I came to Canada in ;  1910 I was looking for land  and my brother John took me  to the land commissioner. Mr.  Fletcher who told, John to take  me and stake the Garret place  and I could have it. John, for  some reason, would not do  this."  In 1912 things began to happen. Tug Wilson and his partner Youngblood, Mrs. Earl's  uncle, came to live at Earl's  Cove, Agamemnon Channel.  A man    named    Rouse,    who  lived' there previously, had  gone to Pender Harbour. The  two partners had been contracting, clearing land in the.  Fraser Valley and supplying  wood for the lighting plant at  Chijliwack. They had a team  of horses and were logging.  They were ex-Imperial cavalry  men and had seen service and  adventure on the Gold Coast,  in South Africa  and India.  Says Walter Wray: " I have  been looking up old records  which go back to .the time I  and my two sisters came to  what was then the Skookum  Chuck. We came up March 1,  J 912 and took up a pre-emption on what is now the Lt.  Col. Codville property, north  and west of the Rapids. At  that time no white people were  there ,but a large settlement  of Indians was on the Reserve  and another smaller lot on the  Reserve opposite Boulder Island through the Rapids.  "During the same    summer  George  Vaughn   and   the   late  Jo Silvey came back to where  they had small cabins in    Coop Bay. Mrs. Waugh, an American, who later became Mrs.  Points, bought the 200    acres  about the bay. -   A Mrs.  Ellis  came  up   and   lived   there   as  a tenant. George Vaughn's cabin was close by. He had just  got marriedi and his wife was;  baking when the house    took  fire and both places were %de-  slroyed."  Mrs. Vaughn, a professional  English pastry cook, was cooking for a camp when she met  and married George Vaughn. ���  As Mrs. Paints now owned  the property about Co-op Bay  Vaughn and Silvey moved to  the North Shore. George  Vaughn took a pre-emption  near the Rapids. Jo Silvey preempted west of the small Indian Reserve ���.  . In 1912 th well known P. B.  Anderson was logging south of  .Waugh Lake. He had a railway running from the lake to  Co-op Bay.  About this time Alfred Jeffrey applied, for a pre-emption  east of Jo Silvey.      His land  surounded the small Indian reserve on three sides.    He had  many arguments with the    Indians over the property  lines  and finally settled the matter  by stringing up  barbed  wire.  1 am told that Alfred Jeffries'  father was an Englishman and  his mother belonged to the Seehelt band..

HOW DO WE KNOW  WHERE TO GO? ���  ADVERTISE!  Stavs  pgg E33  been around these parts before  the coming of the railway and  had many tales to tell of the  early days.  Walter Wray says, "At this  time I had a chicken farm  started and sold my eggs, etc.,  at the store at Pender Harbour, rowing down every  week." This would be about  sixteen miles. ,���  1913 saw Mrs. Karl and her  father joining her uncle and  Tug Wilson in Agamemnon  Bay. Together with, others  they took up pre-emptions  around Killarney Lake where  there were some fine stands  of timber. Tug and his partner  were also interested in some  stands of cascara in Sakinaw  Lake.  The Whittaker family of Seehelt had an old sawmill  through the Chuck on the site  of what now is Doriston. A  settler there called Shaw gave,  his name to the Cove. He got  a mail sack from Seehelt  every two weeks.  Walter Wray goes on, "We  had no store then," but, Naka-  sema, a Japanese, started buying fish. He had a small store,  but it did not continue."  The Wests, two middle aged  brothers and their mother, had  been living fof some tune at  West Bay on    Nelson'island.  There was a logging camp in  'just about  every  bay on Jer-  ,vis Inlet at that time.      With  this thought    in*    mind    John  West built a combination store  and hotel and post office    on.  . his property,  calling it  West-  more.    Then he    married   an  English girl.  In 1914 . the First World  War broke out. Tug Wilson  and the Youngbloods went to  town to enlist. Mrs. Earl beg  ged to go to England with  them but her t father decided  she would be safer in Vancouver. Shaw left Shaw's Cove.  Logging went into a decline  and John .' West's store and  post office with it.  Says Mrs. Vaughn: "George  Wray moved here with Mrs.  Wray the day our John was  born, June 28, 1914. No one  has disputed my claim that  my John was the first white  child born at the Skookum  Chuck. George Wray left a  grown family in Vancouver.  He had been a Reeve of South  Vancouver. He had a boat  called the Embre which, he  sold to the government during the war."  Thinking he might like to  live by his brothers, .Walter  and George, John Wray tcok  up 80 acres of land between  Walter Wray and ' George  Vaughan. But says his daughter, Mrs. Helliar, "We did not  live there only a day or two'  at a time, although, Dad built  a rough house and; did the  necessary improvements to get  his Crown Grant, but he could  hardly be called a resident."  He took a government contract to build one and one-  eighth miles of road, eight  feet wide, around the north  side, of the Rapids. This was  so pecple could by-pass the  Rapids by walking through.  "And later on," says Mrs.  Vaughan, "My Johnny made  many 50 cent pieces, rowing  people up to the store."  Steamer service in the early  days was mostly supplied by  the old Comox, which made  the rounds of the camps, etc.  Its schedule was very elastic.  It left town when the amount  of cargo and passengers was  deemed sufficient.  RED CROSS DONATIONS  Voluntary donations to the  Canadian Red Cross Society  in 1954 amounted to $5,518,-  135, the largest amount collected since the war . years.  National objective last year  was ��5,422,850, stated W.Dent Smith, honorary treasurer of the Society. Total expenditure for the Society in the  past year was $7,953,794. Major expenditure was $1,923,911  for the free national Blood  Transfusion  service.  6 Coast News May 26, 1955  Plate rails for cupboard shelves can be  made from sections of flat curtain rods-;  by cutting off the curved ends and tack-;  jng the rods to the shelves with the opeaj  side up.

VaSuM  fKEEON  REQUEST  T EATON C  CANADA  The B.C. Telephone Company Reports:  A YEAR OF PROGRESS  IN THE FORMER  GOVERNMENT TELEPHONE SYSTEM  A little more than a year ago���on April 1, 1954���the British Columbia Telephone Company,,  took over the operation of 28 telephone exchanges and other facilities formerly operated  by the Federal Government.  Here are some of the highlights of our company's first year of operation in this system:  $225,000 SPENT ON EXPANSION AND IMPROVEMENTS  Improvements of one kind or another have been made in every one of the exchanges acquired  in the transfer. These include switchboard additions or replacements in many offices, renovation of buildings, rehabilitation of outside plant, as well as expansion of long distance facilities  in many areas and installation of outdoor and other telephone paystations.  21 %   INCREASE IN NUMBER OF TELEPHONES  The B.C. Telephone Company has made a 2\% gain in the number of telephones in service  in the former government system. This is more than double the percentage gain for our  company as a whole during the past year.  CHANGES IN ADMINISTRATION AND OPERATION  Immediately after acquiring this system, the telephone company made'an extensive survey  to determine service requirements���-both present and future. At the same time, a number  of key personnel changes were made to bring about more efficient administration of the  territory,  PROGRAM FOR FUTURE DEVELOPMENT  As part of its continuing program of development in this portion of its system, during the next  twelve months the B.C. Telephone Company proposes to spend another $500,000 on expansion.  Projects will include additions to switchboard and Associated equipment, as well as the placing  of more cable, wire, crossarms and poles. Also, long distance facilities will be expanded to  provide new circuits between various points and to improve existing service. A FINE PLACE FOR CATTLE  I read a story in a magazine  lately that I  didn't  care  for,  and I am sure many    readers  must    have    been    hurt    and  made angry.  It  was about    a  jnan visiting the' prairies  who  was taken by a farmer to s see  a magnificent stretch of land.'  The visitor said he gasped   at  the sheer beauty .of the view;  lie expressed his sentiments tef  "the farmer.who said:  "It is a,  grand place   for cattle."  ��� The visitor���who wrote the  story-���expressed .his'- disappointment with anyone 'who  could see only the material advantages of the land; He went  ���on to disparage those who  'have little    sense    of   beauty;  who, as he put it, can see po-  . tatoes but never see pansies,  I didn't think much of the  article when I read-  it    first,  and, on reflection,    I  like    it  less.  Of course it would be a  drab world if we had no sense  of beauty but    it    would    be  worse if there were not those  who labored to till the soil and  enrich life by their hard physical labors. Over the years    I  have known a. good many farmers, and I admire their   .industry and    amazing    energy.  When all acknowledgment has  been made for modern devices  it still remains true that farming is a full-time job; I know  for I have relatives who .work  twelve to fifteen hours a day,  often     .under      circumstances  ii j  ��  ii  ': 4  J  i i  THINKING  ABOUT  PROFITS?  The people  whoconducf  public opinion polls  asked a large  number of Canadians this questioh -  ;���  MHm big a-profit do you think the average  Canadian company makes?"Most people  thought it was nearly 28% on the income dollar.  it  Then these people were asked what profit they  thought a company @^fef to make. Most of  them thought it .was  aboui- lialf as  big as that, or  around 16%.  Actually, Imperial's profit last year was less  than me -thlsd  of what people thought  we made, or a  little more than 8%.  -Ofthis,just -  over 4% was distributed  -   to Imperial's shareholders.

Let  us agree that it is a % worthy  thing to admire lovliness whenever we can. There is wisd,om  in the Chinese saying: "If you  have two loaves of bread, sell  one and buy a lily." But let  us keep our feet on the earth  and appreciate the toil, sweat  and tears of those who keep us  alive.  One of my closest friends  was a devoted minister who-  died several years ago, but  had a remarkable faculty of  being deeply spiritual and at  the same time, practical. He  made it a practice at least  once a year, to preach a sermon to ycung people contemplating marriage, and he suggested that one of the first  things to do was to take out a  sound insurance policy. Some  of the congregation resented  that advice. "What has insurance got to do with marriage?"  they asked. But I think my  friend was right. There is  more to marriage than romance; there is such a thing  as making sensible provision  for emergencies. Surely there  is nothing wrong about using  one's common sense. Let us  have lillies if we can but don't  ignore    the    loaves���lest    the  flowers wither.  # '     *      *  I remember 'marrying a  couple in Toronto many years -  ago. After the ceremony the  bridegroom gave me a $1 fee,  and apologized for the small  amount, saying he was very  hard up. I said: "Don't worry  about the'fee but what are you  two going to live on?" "That's  all right," the hopeful groom  replied, "we're going to live  in with her people!" I have  often wondered how they got  along.  I began to write this article  feeling a little peeved about a  man who seemd to be    something of a snob in his attitude  to people less artistic than he  was���-There are very few people I dislike but I can't stand  snobs���also a    little    annoyed'  with the editor who published  the story. Of course there is a  place for beauty, and life without it would  be    more    than  drab. There is also a place for  downright common,    sense.      I  want ,io,. respect, everybody .especially1 men and women who  toil hard to make others comfortable and happy. Do you remember the  story  about King  George VI?      A   workman   in  East Londn said to him: "You  are a great king.'      The King  replied: "You are a great people."

They used to  need starching and laborious  ironing ��� but now the perky  styles, for wear at any hour  or function, are likely to come  glazed, perma-pleated, or plisse  and to need no ironing at all!  The perma-pleated cotton  shirts in our local shops are  lively, cool ������ and practical.  Children's little dresses with  nylon tops and glazed cotton  skirts will keep the small miss  looking lovely and fresh with  so little summer work.  For the smaller still, just  beginning to show that delightful little*girl vanity, are dresses of pin-dotted nylon in lovely pastel shades. The dots are  the merest specks of wee white  tufts, but what they do far  those dresses is unbelievable.  Stretchy nylon is being used  for hosiery, gloves and lingerie that are really very fitting  (pardon the mild pun) and are  a great worry saver if you've  forgotten the size!  Ladies who like to preserve  the looks of their hands when  doing household chores should  investigate the long cuffed living gloves cf fine-textured,  friction surfaced rubber. They  are lined, for comfortable  wearing, strong to withstand  light gardening, long cuffed to  protect fore-arms and even  blouse cuffs. They're completely waterproof of course, and  will stretch "a mile."  There are 535 Sick Room  Loan Supply Cupboards maintained in Canada by the Canadian Red Cross.
