But the land has  seen other "men with vision"  . ��� unsung heroes who pioneered when there was nothing but  wilderness.  A conflict -.arises between  the pioneers and their modern  counterparts over the proposed  darnming of the area.

Federal government and institutional operations include  DVA, the Indian SchooL 13  Control assistance and Cancer  work. Collections are those  collected by the nurse from  patients and average $50  monthly.  The'VON made 40 free calls  in March and 47 in February  which included pre- and postnatal care, OAP,. babies and  social welfare. These calls are  not recognized by the government as social welfare work.  The work of the VON is of  the type not handled by hospitals and in such areas as this  is regarded as out-patient service which at the same time  costs money to continue.  A big feature is the home  bedside and nursing care under supervision of a doctor  which, permits many patients  to remain at home and! not occupy more expensive hospital  beds.  District calls during March  were close to 200 and for. February were.slightly below the  200 mark.

Father Pierre Plamondon  O.M.I., passed away at St.  Mary's Hospital, New Westminster, aged 86. He was ordained priest on Nov. 27, 1893  by Bishop Dontenwill, O.M.I.,  in what was then St. Peter's  Cathedral, New Westminster,  and was the Bishop's first ordination and among the first  in, B.C. .  : He built .Seehelt. Mission in  1907 and stayed six years  here and then returned tot  New Westminster.  He was also at Agassiz Cariboo Indian School and West  Coast Indians where he was  almost drowned and was in  hospital for three months.  Then he went back again to  his missionary work and- at  73 was still active and available to replace oblate priests  so they could take much needed  vacations.  . Up to a few days before his  death this pioneer missionary  was assistant at St. Peter's  New Westminster. Oblate fathers from all over B.C. attended  Requiem Mass at St. Mary's  Indian School, Mission. He was  buried in the Oblate cemetery  nearby. He was well loved by  the Seehelt Indians and remembered by many white residents. Mass will be sung in the  Seehelt Mission. Church on  May 14 at 9 a.m. He was a  wonderful man of a humble  mind. He served the Seehelt  Indians faithfully and his  many acts of kindness, especially to the sick and aged wili  long be remembered.  Elementary  School  ar  bad  m  Tent caterpillars are reported to be bad. this year, and  from various inspections made  in the vicinity of Gibsons they  appear to be a serious menace.  Just what can be done with  them right now is problematical as it is too late to spray  them once they start wriggling. Best treatment at present is to cut off the affected  parts and burn   them.  Some trees are infested bad-  Parr rescued  by crash boat  The RCAP crash boat M533  towed; a half submerged) gill-  netter ED3587 into Seehelt  Friday, after the two crew  men were taken off by plane  earlier m the morning.  The fishermen, skipper Dig-  earad and J. Scouler, were  stranded on top of the cabin  of their fish boat from shortly  after midnight until they were  sighted by an RCAF Rescue  plane and taken off.  Hie men were reported suffering from chill and strain,  but have recovered from their  exhausting ordeal.  Sgt. McLennan of the crash  boat left the gill-netter, still  heeled over, two-thirds of her  decks awash, in charge of  Const. Neale, RCMP, at Seehelt.  In 1950 when the last bylaw  was presented to the ratepayers of School District No. 46  the registration of Grades 1  to 6-pupils in the Gibsons Elementary School numbered  161.  The school had five ; classrooms, was one of the best old  schools and up- to that time  had accommodated high school  as well as elementary' pupils  although the old Community  Hall and various makeshift  annexes had been used to provide the accommodation needed.  With the opening of the  new Elphinstone Junior Senior  High School early in 1952  pressure was somewhat relieved and it was no longer necessary to rent the makeshift  annexes.  Now, what is the. situation  at the present time and what  is the trend for the next five  years with regard to the Gibsons Elementary School?  The registration at the beginning of the present school  year was 244, an increase  since 1950 of 50 percent. The  number of pupils has increased    considerably    since      the  school year opened and the  school-is not only considerably overcrowded but two additional temporary class-rooms  have had to be provided, one  in the old Legion Hall and one  in the old Sicotte House which  was moved down from the  High School grounds last  Fall.  The survey made by the  Board as to the minimum expected increase enrolment for  the,next five years' indicates  that by 1959-60 268 pupils  will be seeking education at  the Gibsons Elmentary School  which will require a minimum  of eight classrooms.  In future issues of The  Coast News the situation ��t  the Elphinstone Junior Senior  High School and the Seehelt  Elementary School will be discussed.  An architect has been on-  gaged by the Board to prepare  preliminary plans and estimates for all the proposed new-  school construction in District  No. 46 and., at a later date it  will be possible t0 estimate  the effect of the proposed expenditures on the mill rate- -of  the district. 2 Coast News May "12, 1955  Wxz ��oast Metus  Published by Seehelt Peninsula Nev/s Ltd.  every Thursday, at Gibsons, B.C.

A Ho  The problem of garbage collecton was discussed one  week ago by the Village Commission. If all householders  of Gibsons had sat in on the meeting they would have  learned considerable about a situation Gibsonites will have  to face someday.  At present Gibsons is served by a private individual  who receives payment from those whose garbage he collects. It could be done cheaply if Gibsonites would only  take time out to think over the problem.  Gibsons people are faced with continuing the present  system with their full support or they will have to face* a  good sized increase in taxes for the setting-up of a garbage  collection service. This will involve the purchose of the required land, maintenance of a trucking system, an incinerator, staff to handle the trucks and the disposal method and  the general maintenance of a garbage collection department.  In some areas where the municipality takes care of  such a service it is paid for via the taxation route. This  means a mill rate sufficient to allow the setting up and  maintenance of such a department.  If the present private collector of garbage decided he  could no longer carry on, the village would be% faced with a  situation under provincial laws which would have to be met.  There would be no way out. Gibsons is' growing and with  it its sanitation problems.  The situation was neatly outlined by Commissioner  Crowhurst at the last village meeting when he said garbage collection in Gibsons would have to be subsidized only  when necessary or Gibsonites would have to face the setting up of a municipal system.  What will be done is entirely in the hands of the  people of Gibsons. They can either help support the present  method of collecting garbage or face the heavy expense of  setting up a municipal department. Increasing taxes is not  popular anywhere but householders have it in their own  hands what to do.  Comment, for and against, would be welcomed by  The Coast News so if anyone cares to write his or her.  views, as briefly as they can, The Coast News columns are  open for such discussion. Be brief please, because space is  at a premium.  Beachcombing developed  with the logging industry, except, in the very- earlydays  when logs loose on the tide  were not worth picking up,  becaxise of the lack of the  small mill " that could use  them.  The first combers appeared  around places like Vancouver  and New Westminster where  the s a w mi lis congregated  Mostly the combing was done  with a dory that two men  stood up and rowed or the  very rare small steamboat.  At that time the law of sea  salvage did not cover logs  and first come first served  was the rule. As "the industry  developed the combing grew  also and became tinged w7ith  a sinister hue.  Skippers would pull out after being holed up in a bay  for foul weather and after  getting well out in the fairway would look back and see  logs" floating out of the boom  and a prompt investigation  would disclose a -boom chain  had ben tampered with so  ���that it would let go in the  first gentle swell or the tail  stick had been all but sawn  through.  This was disaster if the  tug moved out in the night  when the raft might go unobserved till dawn. These ructions brought stringent laws  which sounded good, and did  have some effect on the nefarious  activity.  The advent of the gasboat  put a polish on the business  and made it so efficient that  it had to be recognized because it was at least a definite means of gathering these  strays from hitherto inaccessible places. There were gradual improvements in booming practice such as the riders on the end of each raft.  The first diesel tubs showed  up and were regulated as to  how much they could tow.  The term beachcomber is  generally, considered derogatory and at times there was justice in this as the work was  spasmctic and during long  spells of calm weather and  prowling    t he     beaches    for  Editor: I wish to thank the  firemen and neighbors for  coming to my assistance when  my house took fire last Sunday.

Much of the success of the  Essay Contest is due to the  interest and work of Mr.  Peers, the sponsor of our  High School United Nations  Club and our teachers who  take a great interest in all our  activities.  Will ycu kindly convey my  gratitude to your officers  and members of your Lodge  also the judges who gave  much of their time.  Yours sincerely,  Percy A. (Bud) White.  all lactic or souring:gerins'are  destroyed in .pasteurizing and  the putrifying germs are left  to develop faster than ever.  Hence the sickening flavor  you sometimes get when pasteurized milk is kept too  long."  Our local men are hardworking and running a good  clean setup and should hot be  restricted by the same law  that covers milk handling in a  city especially a dirty place  like Vancouver. The writer in  the B.C. Farmer says: "It has  always seemd to me more sensible to produce clean milk  than to try t<> purify an unclean product by pasteurization. There has never been' devised a way to purify milk  after, it has been contaminated.  Any dairyman who is enterprising enough to produce  Grade A milk should have the  full support of all authorities  and the  consumer."  To my knowledge there  have . been dairy cattle in  these parts for the last 60  years and they haven't killed  anybody yet. When one compares the imported against the  local milk in taste there is not  much argument left as to why  people do not drink more  milk.   . A  Reader.  Editor: May I air a bit of a  grievance through your most  valued columns? It is about  our local milk producers. It  would appear as if they may  be regimented out .cf business  by some of the bumblers that  have been poorly instructed at  the  local flophouse, the UBC.  It is charged that by selling  good clean raw milk of too  high a fat content (in other  words too good) they are acting contrary to law. If. these  bumblers- who are so anxious  to improve things were of one  accord it might.be a simple  matter but here is what one  pundit has t0 say, taken from  the B.C. Farmer: "Pasteurization is not sterilization and  some disease germs are not  killed  by the  process."  Dr. Conn has pointed out,  "there are millions of germs  in buttermilk but whoever  heard of buttermilk hurting  anyone!" He goes on to say  "the process does not kill all  bacteria and those remaining  will grow rapidly unless the  milk  is cooled at once.      But  , Editor: A leading article in  your issue of April 28 concerning schools, is, .without any  doubt whatsoever, apparently  intended to start another controversy.  I must say that whoever  wrote this article has absolutely no knowledge of the facts,  nor any idea of-'the reasonif or  the dispute and upset 6f the  original  bylaw.  In order to clarify the situation, it. is necessary to go, back  tb the year 1949.    Mrs. Xi. S.  Jackson was,  I believe,   liead  of the board. Mr. A. E. Riteh-  ���-ey wias  also    on    the    school  board at that time. Mr. Ritch-  ey was sent over to Gambier  Island to work for the department   of    public    works    and  while over here was asked, by  some of the parents as well as.  by   the     late    Capt.    Francis  Drage,  what,   if any,  arrangements  were   contemplated  for  the   children of  Gambier     Island on education,  bearing in  mind that we    islanders    had  been absorbed into School District No. 46.  The answer given was no  arrangements were being considered    whatsoever.       Conse  quently ���:CJapt;.;..;. Drage fought  the bylaw' and a "new bylaw  was submitted approving a  school for Gambier.. This was  in 1950. Col. Burnett, who  worked exceedingly hard to  bring both sides together told  us that the Gambier School,  would definitely open for the  beginning of the school year  1950-51. That meant that the  youngest child at Gambier  Harbour would start, school in  September (at 5 1/2 years).  However, Col. Burnett was  moved, and in October, 1950,  the school board made arrangements for four 'children  to attend Gibsons Elementary  School via boat from New  Brighton.  I have no hesitation in stating, that, in all the intervening  time only once have the children had to stay overnight at  Gibsons, because of bad weather. Now these children, or  perhaps I should say most of  them, enjoy the boat trip and'  look forward to it. Also, during these years they have  made friends and enjoyed all  the facilities offered by the  attendance at Gibsons Elementary School. These advantages  would be woefully lacking in  a one-room school at Gambier,  Another point I would like  to call attention to is the site  chosen by the so called representative for Gambier Island  and partly approved is, to say  the least, no good. Sure, there  is some clearing done, a house  that could be made over fairly  cheaply. There is also. a well,  dry for about five months a  year and I have heard that the  owner's, wife wouldn't drink  the water when >there was water.  For my part,, I see no sense  or reason in depriving the children already attending Gibsons School of the privileges  and benefits; they already enjoy. As I see it the same privileges and benefits would be  had by the other children on  the Island if their parents applied for transportation and  in the long run that would be  a far cheaper and more sensible  thing to do.  As I said before, 1950 is not  1955 and 1955 is now. A  school in 1950 would have  been just the thing needed.  Now it would be an unnecessary luxury besides depriving  these children of. the facilities  that can only be obtained by  their attendance at the bigger school.  BEACHCOMBING  BY L.S.J.  strays it was a temptation to  look around a summer cottage perhaps or any vacant  buildings or camps to see if  there was anything useful  for the   taking. i  In seme'' of the log storage  grounds it was easy to pick  up a few chains by robbing  the swifters and these .were  readily convertible into gas  or grub or what have you.  Up until recently the modus operandi went something  like this. The tug skipper who  lost the legs would seek out  the nearest comber and give  them a written permit to pick  up all logs marked so and so  at so much a log or so much  per thousand feet. This last  matter was decided by the  size of the logs and the locale  cf the  spill.  It was sometimes quite  easy to pick up a bunch of  logs if the beach was right.  A fairly steep beach was  good. A long sandy flat with  occasional boulders was bad  this of course affected - the  price. It was at this point  where   chicanery stepped  in.  All logs are presumed to be  branded with the owners'  mark which designated the  origin but it always and still  is today a difficult job to mark  every log in a . clear manner  so our friend after getting the  sill cleared up has a few unmarked logs in his possession.  If some of these logs had  the point mark of a gilchrist  jack smearing up the place  where a' mark might have  been it was nobody's business  but it was painfully, noticeable that the best logs and  most easily .disposed of seemed to be in this category. It  would Hnot be, long before  our friend would have a section or two of these sort of  legs and he had to have a  market. This was not too easy and is generally the case  where there is some risk, as  it is a criminal offense to cut  LETTERS to the EDITOR  ,; Then there are ether things  to be taken into consideration,  such as where would the  teacher stay? I know of no  place at West Bay where a  teacher could stay, and the  days when a teacher would  .walk from 1 1/2 to 2 miles  each way through mud, slush,  ��� snow and what have you,  went out with the horse ���'.. and  buggy, and I wonder just what  would happen, if a fire started. No one to help the teacher,  no phone and say 16 or 17  children. I know we don't look  for things like that, yet they  are happening every day arid  we should at least face up to  the  possibility.  - Again, your article is misleading as to the time. One  child leaves home at 7.20 a.m.  and reaches home at 4.45 p.m.  And this child walks approximately 11/2 miles to; get the  school boat, and has done this  ��� since Oct 16, 1950. Yet she is  still full of pep in the evening-  She is also the youngest of  the original fOur, to start at  Gibsons School from Gambier  Island. A school at West Bay  would not make any difference in the time til is school  child would have to leave  .home. In fact it would be a  ' greater hardship on her, *md  on the Andes Bay children  than the boat and bus ride..  In closing let me say, I have  had occasion to travel from  Gambier Island to the mainland several times in all three  of the boats used for school  .boats, and I did not find even  the first one .to�� uncomfortable. The second was far superior to the first one and the  present school boat has no  peer plying the waters of  Howe Sound, either East or  West. I found both operators  careful, and. competent. Neither of them would take any unnecessary chances. ;  i/     ^' '  . A Gambier Island Taxpayer.

There was a sense in which  these people had already  come to Jesus. They came to  Him in such numbers that  He cculd scarcely find time  t0 eat. They crowded Him  and crpwded around. Yet these  approaches were physical, and  what He wanted was a surrender of heart and life. On  one occasion when in the midst  of a crowd, He surprised  His disciples by asking, "Who  tcufhed me?" They replied  with astonishment, "Thou see-  st the multitudes thronging  thee, and sayst thou, who  touched me?" But Jesus looked around to. see who had  done that thing, for he knew  there has been an approach  which had not  been  physical.

"Of course not!", you  reply, and yet you may permit your eating habits to follow a pattern set by the  "talk-of-the-day.  Conversations over Canadian  dinner tables frequently turn  to calories. Too often, good  foods are rejected on the  basis of hearsay reports of  their reported calorie, count  At other times, the estimation  of calories is mere guesswork  These presumptions cause some  essential foods to be called  "high calorie" or "high energy" and to be condemned  mistakenly as fattening.  Foods which supply protein, minerals and vitamins  are more than energy foods,  despite their calorie content,  Only foods which are primarily sources of calories (like  sugars and some fats) may be  classified as   "high calorie."  One does not consider milk  a high calorie food, even  though one glass or eight  ounces of milk furnishes 150  calories. About one-fourth of  the solids in milk is protein.  In addition milk is an excellent source of calcium and  riboflavin. Also, one should  not think of bread as a  high calorie food just, because  one slice orN one ounce of enriched white bread furnishes  75 calories. Enriched white  bread provides protein as well  as minerals, calcium and iron'  nty your  FORD MONARCH  plained that Pender Harbour  had not the publicity it merited.  He quotes Rev. George  Pringle, master of the missionary boat, Sky Pilot, as  describing American investors  buying up the islands, developing resorts "and generally  beating  us to it."  Rev. Mr. Pringle in those  years described the area as  not a hinterland, but a foreground for the Pacific Coast  Metropolis.  He also went into the    des-  BSS    EB  and the three B vitamins ���  thiamine, riboflavin and niacin.  It is revealing to learn that  different types of breads vary  little calorie-wise. Enriched  white, whole wheat, rye and  various specialty breads furnish approximately the same  number of calories; ounce for  ounce.  Daily selection of foods  should be made on . as functional a basis as are any of  the other choices in modern  living. This thought applies  to those on a normal ��� diet as  well as to those concerned  with reducing their daily calorie intake. Canada's Food  Rules provide the most reliable guide to normal, healthful eating. When planning reduced calorie meals the  amounts of foods which furnish little more than calories  should be curtailed more drastically than amounts of foods  like milk, enriched or whole  wheat bread, eggs and meat,  which supply significant  amounts of many necessary  nutrients.

Delights of fishing, hunting,  and shooting were described,  and the stocking of the area  around Pender Harbour with  pheasants in 1919 was mentioned. Businesses operated by  Mr. Donley, Mr. Pope, and  Mr. Brynelson- were noted,  where the singing, the    handi-  Reading this article makes  one wonder hew much of the  Rev. Pringle's dreams he  would find' to admire today.  The scenery is still as lovely,  the road is here, the lakes are  still here. His ideas of-what  Xhe area could oecome were  sound indeed, if the people  are wise enough to make use  of what lies at hand.  Redrooffs at Halfmoon Bay  was publicised in an article by  Donald Gillingham. He too  described the coastal scenery.  In those days, the casual visitor saw practically none of  what lay behind the coastal  forest. Mr. Gillingham learned  the then post mistress at Halfmoon Bay, Mrs. Lyell, was  the oldest old timer in the  Bay, and had been there for  38 years.  The summer resort at Red-  roofs was described in considerable detail, even to the  cows. He mentioned the Wall  ranch, where Mrs. Tom Wall  kept a thousand chickens, a  mile and a half back of the  Bay.  The caretakers of the resort, Mr. George King and  Mr. Tom Beasley, commanded  attention, in connection with  their work of stocking Trout  lake with ��� 5000 fingerlings  hatched on the site.  The pace of the  area,    the  McCULLOCH  infrequent interruptions of  civilization in the form of  a red-funnelled steamer, the  swims, campfires, and the  fishing were things that most  impressed that writer, in addition to the people he met at  the lovely resort 35 years ago.  Henry Morley described  what we now call the Sunshine Coast, in a companion  article as the Riviera of the  Pacific. Seehelt, with its Georgia Straits for a front door  and Porpoise'Bay at the back,  delighted him. Fishing, hiking,  mountaineering and boating  were then deemed the finest  sports.  He gave a gi-aphic description of the Indian Village,  crafts and the boat building  were much admired'. He mentioned, the totem poles carved  by Philip Paul, which stood  on  the   promenade,    near the  pavilion." These were the  same totem poles recently removed by the Union Steamships Co. to Bowen Island.  The Indians of many years;  ago, Mr. Morey reported had  conceived the idea of digging  a canal from Porpoise Bay tcr  Trail Bay, and had begun the  excavation, an Herculean task  'for them, without equipment.  "They were restrained" he  reports. "It was maintained ,  that the difference in the  height of the tide at the two  bays would make the canal  impracticable."  If they had been encouraged  it might have meant a tremen--  dous saving to the lumber industry if such a canal could  actually have been completed.  This was said to have been the  main reason for their attempt,  even then.  ^^j^i^S^W  Notice to  Parents  If you plan to enroll your child in Grade 1 next September, please register him or her at your nearest school  on the dates shown below:  Pender Harbour Sr. High-Elementary School ��� May  24 and 25 in the afternoons.

As I had to leave to go fishing in a week or so to the  West Coast, I told him I  couldn't spare the time to do  any work, but however, I gave  him the equivalent of a day's  work which amounted to  about $3 and he went away  happy and said he would like,  to visit  us sometime soon.  Needless to say I got well  acquainted with Henry during  the years until he died here  some two years ago. I'll have  some more to say of him later  on.  Times were pretty tough  then and especially in the  fishing industry. We were paid  three cents a fish that fall  for humpback salmon, otherwise known as pinks and  three-ahd-a'-half cents if we de- ���  livered   them  to the  cannery  at West Vancouver and six  to six-and-a-half for" dog salmon, otherwise known as  Chum.  I remember John Husby  (He is still around) when we  were up at Squamish fishing  Humps and I got about 400 or  500 cf tliem in one set; in fact  my net was sunk with them  in shallow water and as they  we're mostly dead, it was hard  to get them out. I wore out  a   couple  of  pairs of gloves.  John was through before I  was and he came over and  told me he was to anchor and  was going to cock and invited  me to come.  He had a pound of cooked  ham from the collector the day  before and while I was enjoying his hospitality and eating a good share of the ham I  asked him how much he paid  for same. "Oh," he says quite  frankly, "I gave 15 humps for  I pound of ham." That meant  he traded 45 pounds of good  salmon for 1 lb. cooked ham,  and the producer of hogs, the  farmer was, I understand, getting about 2 cents per lb. live  weight at ,the time. Of course,  poor Swift Canadian and  Burns had to live too.-  John Husby told me after  that he had a heifer on the  ranch on Pratt Road he would  like to sell me for winter's  meat and that Axel Anderson  and John MacKay wanted, a  one-third share each, so we.  bought the two-year-old heifer,  after he looked for it for  about a week, I killed the animal next to the ravine where  Dick    Fitchett      moved      the  St. Mary's Hospital gets  many distress calls  Over the years, St. Mary's  Hospital has answered many  a call of distress���on land and  sea and now that the Hospital-  is sending out its own SOS  for help we should perhaps  look back on a few instances  when the fact that the Hospital was there meant the difference between life and! death  for some unfortunate. ./Less  than a year ago a fisherman  docked at the wharf at Gar-  den, Bay threw himself ^from  his ^blazing boat; and , lay  in screaming agony,' a mass of  fire./ ���.. �� -'���  While .the    man    was.... still '  writhing in pain,  willing  vol- ���  unteers rushed to his aid.    A  quick trip to the Hospital and  the efficient work    of    doctor .  and nurse ��� and what could  have been a fatal accident was  averted. The patient .was given  a new chance for his life by  a quick,plane trip to the City  where skin grafting could save  his life. '���'  The patient from Halfmcom  Bay who came in with a heart  condition that worsened soon  after his' arrival at the Hospital and.whose life was saved  when a serious condition de-.  veloped���- the young mother  from Egmont whose life was  saved by a midnight dash  from Middleppint to St. Mary's  when complications from a  premature birth made hospital  attention vital to saving her  life ���.the, time a tree rolled  on the surveyor for the new  road between Kleindale and  Earl's Cove arid, his rapid trip  to St. Mary's saved him from  being a cripple for life.  In a very short period recently three painful, accidents  occurred where the victims  could have lost the use of fingers or hands but quick treatment -at St. Mary's saved  them. Perhaps we' sometimes  take^ou^IJpspital for granted,  rbut. these who have found it.  ready in time of great need  never forget.  Perhaps we .should.; remember that the Hospital stands  ready 24 hours a day��� that  many hospital workers chose  their vocation largely, from a  sense cf duty in the full  knowledge that earnings are  rarely as high as they should  be. The Government's assistance can only cover a part of  the. Hospital's operating expenses. Most of all, we should  remember that the Hospital is  the heart of the community ���  and give from the heart when  the Hospital sends out its call  for help-  I.O.O.F.

We paid  John the princely sum of six  cents all dressed' and it was  the best canned meat I've ever  tasted. One of our girls'was  very ill in the General Hospital' and the missus was down  in the city. So I got Mrs. Peterson to can it for us. I supplied  the meat cans and I. took two  cans and she took one. She  did a  wonderful job.  Of course as I've mentioned  there was little m^ney if any,  but before I get away from the  price,  Dave Mackay told    me  this one about humpback  salmon.  He  and his father were  delivering them  at Gore Ave.  Dock about 1910 for $1.50    a  hundred  fish. One day Woodward's buyer came down  and  offered them $5 a piece    and  of   course  they accepted    the  offer.   When it came  later   in  the  season and they got    the  big hump on them which is all  gristle  they  told     the    buyer  that they didn't feel like taking  the money  for    the     big  ugly flat ones;    they're  tasteless.    "Oh,"  he says    "I wish  they were all that kind��� the  women like the big ones."  proach to the subject.  ; Ideas inspired by women  are found in the record number of new passenger cars put  into service during the past  year, and particularly on the  Super Continental, the CNR's  new high-speed trans - continental train.  Finger tip and push button  controls; beds that move tip  and down without effort; restful foam rubber seats adjustable by push-button action and  passenger control of air-conditioning and heating in private  rooms are some of the ideas  which the CNR adopted on  the suggestion of women passengers, Mr. McKenzie said.  While  many  of  these    suggestions are a    boon    to    the  whole family,    some    are    of,  particular advantage to  women passengers.  Among these are the'newly-  designed washstands in sleeping car bedrooms.

BY  CHUCK  TOMPKINS  The Gibsons Firemen, at  this writing, have three wins  straight and are in sole possession of first place. On Wednesday* night they edged Wilson  Creek 6-3 and Sunday gave  Pender another trimming 16-  L  The Gibsons Merchants pulled the first upset of the new  season by downing Port Mellon 8-4 last Tuesday. The Merchants could not start a winning streak and were stopped  cold by Wilson Creek on, Sunday 12 to 3.  Seehelt took two beatings  during the week, the first by  Pender 17-5 and again on  Sunday when Port Mellon walloped them 15 to 1.  I for one hope that the Seehelt Club doesn't fold up because of these lopsided Scores,  as a new team cannot expect  to win games from teams  that have been together for  years.  As the team gets settled  down and used to playing together, they will start to win  games.  I made my first prediction  of the ball season a wrong one  but from now on I shall try  for the correct forecast of one  game a week.  The big game this Sunday  should be between Wilson  Creek and Port Mellon. Port  Mellon is a fine defensive club  but still lacks that punch at  the plate so this week I have  to take the club with the hitters���Wilson Creek to win.  On Sunday at Whitaker  Park the big day for a lot of  kids from six to 60 will be the  icpendng day of the Sunshine  Coast Little  League.  To men like Vic Metcalfe,  Gus Crucil, Doug Oike, the  coaches of the teams, and to  the Little League executive itself must go the credit for providing the boys of the Peninsula with the opportunity to  play baseball.  As a sports writer I would .  like to congratulate these.men  on a ;jpb that has been really,  well done, soothe best of luck  to Little League.  (Continued from  Page  1>  A LONG HAUL  If the total mileage of  tracks in the Canadian National System were extended  in a single line, it would take  a train travelling norn stop at  a mile-a-minute, 23. days, 7  hours and 51 minutes; to complete the run,   .  more than anything else, competition in their own age group  with field and other equipment trimmed down to their  size. Carl Stotz had seen too  . many youngsters sit on the  sidelines unable to get in the  game because they were too  small or too young. He had  been a very real part of the  "heartbreak" as a kid, and,- as  s man, he'd watched the disappointment so often that he  did something about it. He organized Little League Baseball  for boys in that age group.  His first move was to interest  a few friends, then he interested several Williamsport businessmen in his long-time  dream and idea for baseball  for boys. The start in Williams-  port was a three-team league  with 12 uniformed players on  each team, and the games  played on, a diamond two-  thirds the size of a regulation  diamond-.  That was in 1939. The idea  was an immediate success and  the growth of Little League  Baseball has been phenomenal. The 1954 season showed  4500 leagues organized comprising 18,000 teams with approximately 270,000 boys 12  years of age and, under on the  roster of regular "first'' teams.  In addition to this, well over  80,000 boys found places on  "farm teams."  lipines and Korea.

There are  far  too many intanglibles.; .  The objective of - Little  League Baseball, Incorporated, is to provide baseball for  boys. Meticulous adherence to  this aim undoubtedly is the  reason for its popularity in  thousands of communities. The  boys participating in the game,  the adults contributing .their  services and the fans rooting  in the bleachers all get something out of Little League ���  and it's considerably more  than just wholesome recreation.  As teams are formed, in accordance with the prescribed  auction system, the manager  has but one thought, and that  is "can a boy pitch, field, run  or bat? Depending upon, the  size of the league's bounded  area, the pool of candidates  will include from 100 to -500  boys.  All Little League teams  must be uniformed. The players take pride in the wearing  of this uniform; they know  that should they engage in  malicious mischief, they would  lose this privilege.  The players, being in the  formative years of their lives,  are , particularly susceptible to  attention from adults. The  managers and coaches of the  teams, as well as the umpires  and others in direct contact  with the boys on the field,  should set examples in conduct, sportmanship and behavior which the boys will copy.  The character of the adults  selected for these positions is  infinitely more important than,  their knowledge of baseball.  Little, League requires the  support of the whole communi-.  ty. It is a jealous taskmaster.  Manpower ��� and womanpow-  er, too .��� is esential in ever}7  phase of operations. Service to  Little League is tantamount to  service to your community.  There are no financial rewards  to the persons who contribute  time and money to the movement. But the workers do see  the results of their efforts in.  the form of youngsters who arg  developing   into   real   citizens.

At Clayton's Grocery, similar enlargement of the business area is in progress, with  the grocery store being enlarged considerably, and a  new, larger warehouse being  opened out.  Changes in actual merchandising space, stairway to the  ���basement, and rear entrance  will make this addition a valuable one to the Clayton Grocery.  Ki  Last week's meeting, Ladies  night, proved a real success,  when the wives enjoyed ��� the  hospitality of the club.  The two RCMP films, Northwest Passage and' McKenzie  River District were shown and  thoroughly enjoyed. The  showing of the films was  made possible through the cooperation of Cpl. John Mox-ri-  son of the local RCMP. Gordon Ballentine filled in as projectionist.  The forthcoming Peanut  drive for funds for the new  library was briefly outlined.  The committee will soon have  details ironed out. Watch for  this great blitz.  The two RCMP films were  shown by the Kiwanis Club at  the School Hall , Thursday  night. A silver collection for  the Library Fund amounted  to $29.30,  a fine contribution.  Final results from the Kiwanis Easter Dance showed  net proceeds for Kiwanis welfare fund of over $166.
