Madeira Park Community Hall  All is set fcr the biggest  May Day fete Seehelt has ever  had. It will be"~held- Monday  and will be the only May. Day  fete along the Sunshine Coast.  , There will be two queens  crowned, May Pole dancing, a  parade with floats and a band,  andi plenty of sporting events  which will conclude with a  baseball game. Then the May  Queens' Ball will be held in  the Residential School hall  frctml 7 to 9 o'clock.  Taking the program in its  entirety it appears to be one  of the most ambitious ever  tackled on the Peninsula.  Gibsons Board of Trade decided at its last, meeting to  enter a float in the parade.  Mrs. Winn Stewart heads the  committee to prepare it and it  will likely include last year's  Gibsons May Queen and her  princesses. The May Queen,  was Joyce Inglis. Work is now  proceeding on  the  float.  Fred Mills, parade master,  has asked for plenty of floats  for the parade and urges those  planning to enter a float contact him by May 21 so he can  arrange space where the parade will form up and a position   in the parade.  Mr. Mills who is energetic  in his efforts to line up a good  ���parade expects , to get .entries  from points coitside Seehelt as  this is the only May Day event  along this section of the coast.  Sprinkling regulations  last  same as  On the subject of water  sprinkling last year's regulations will apply. It was revealed to the commission-that the  water pressure was low at the  school. This caused Mr. Burns,  the clerk, to comment that the  time was approaching when  the present gravity line from  the water' source would not  be sufficient to carry the load.  The village might get by this  year. Commissioner - Peterson  suggested that the commission  should start to budget something each year for this problem.  Accounts totalling $1,744.87  were passed and ordered paid.

Commissioner Crowhurst reported the pump house was  practically completed. following a repair job on it. Some  paint work is about all that  is needed.  Further discussion arose regarding the Improvement District move to expand the use  of the fire department on a  regular basis. Commissioner  Peterson said he had nothing  new to report on the subject  but understood meetings were  continuing. Mr. Burns, the  clerk, said the cost of the fire  department to ratepayers cf  Gibsons was seven mills and  this would mean a nice drop  out of the 12 mills ratepayers  are paying this year but the  fire department has to be  maintained by Gibsons ratepayers.  The sale of bedding plants  in a store not usually operated  for- such purpose was judged  to be contrary to business tax  regulations and the commission ruled that such places be  assessed a separate tax to cover this phase of their operations. This motion was passed  over the protest of Commissioner Crowhurst who expressed the opinion such an imposition would be persecution, because numercius stores were  selling a variety of things not*  strictly in accord with their  license.  Commissioner Ritchey, acting chairman during the absence of chairman Drummond  suggested the commission did  not want to be unfair and that  other stores selling goods beyond their license should be  investigated too.  Reports that Woodwards Department Store of Vancouver  was soliciting business in this  area while delivering goods  was discussed but the commission decided to watch the situation and report on it later.  He is looking forward to having entries from , as far as  Port Mellon, Gibsons, Pender  Harbour and any cither place  that wants to be represented.  There are various types of  parade entries such as commercial, community, private  and industrial, floats also a  section for children with decorated wagons, bicycles and  ��uch like, original or comical.'  ��� and also a class for walking  entries which can be either  original or comical. Mr.  Mills is hoping for the  largest and most interesting  parade Seehelt has ever bad.  It will be headed by the band  of the North Vancouver Sea  Cadets along with the Wren-  ettes.  The parade will move    off.  at 2 p.m.  Queens to) be crowned are  Anne Lang, representing Se-:  chelt and Nancy Rose Francis  representing the Residential  School. Attendants for Miss  Lang will be Kathleen Toyn-  bee and Sharan Stewart and  for Miss Francis Linda Joe and  Corinne Wilson. "  ��� The May Queens will be  crowned after the parade and  at this function speakers will  be Mrs'. D. E. Smith, chairman  of the May-- Day committee;  Ernie Pearson, president of  the .Board)'of Trade and Chief  Craigan, Chief of the Indian  Band. This is the first time an  Indian girl has been included  among the May Queens.  There will be selections   by.  the band and May Pole danc>|  ing after the crownings     and  the speeches. ��� /   '.  ���������'���������: Field-sports "events will .]��$��,���:  run: off from 3.30' to 5 pirn, followed by the sbtftball game.  There will be races for preschool children and girls and  boys up to 14 years old^. Ira all  there will be 20 racing- events  for the youngsters. *The only  break in the children's races  will be one for women of any  age and it will be a potato  and spoon race. Races for the  children will include dashes,  potato and, spoon races and  three-legged events.  In the event of rain, activities will be held in the Residential School Hall.  During the day there will  be a demonstration of basket  weaving on the Community  Park grounds in the Indian  Village. This will be presented  by one of the native Sisterhood.  Kiwanis, with the aid of Mr.  Peanut, is holding a canvas  from Hopkins Landing to Roberts Creek on May 19 on behalf of the new Public Library. On May 21 and 23, there  will be street sales. George  Hopkins and various Kiwanis  club members are looking after all arrangements.  Kiwanis, knowing: the benefits of a good public library,  Is working to raise the funds,  so they can erect the building  when funds are available.  A site has been made available by the Village for a public Library, on the corner of  the Winn and Gower Roads,  south oi the Ficefeall. On Monday, Jules Mainil, who will be  in charge of the building, was  on the site, accompanied by  Commissioner Ballentine and  Capt. Metcalfe, who was an  interested onlooker.  At. E. Ritchey5 will do neeesr  sary bulldozing, Jules Mainil  will bring his own small tractor for preparation of the  ground, and work will begin  at the first possible moment.

The VON campaign has  reached a bottleneck. More  canvassers are needed' to help  collect funds during the appeal it is making this month.  Members of the Headlands  VON are now canvassing Gibsons area for the annual drive  for funds. A total of $30 has.  been collected so far. A meeting of Headlands auxiliary reported, that proceeds from the  Choraliers concert amounted  to $81.55. A motion was passed to send a total of $100 toi  the Elphinstone branch of the  VON.  The Board of Trade at its  Tuesday night meeting urged  all citizens to support the VON  as this organization was a  great need in the  community.  crioiarsi  for   students  The PTA Teachers Scholarship committee announces a  yearly award of $250 to a  matriculations student of E1--  phinstone Junior-Senior High  School."  The teachers have themselves contributed $100 to the  scholarship and the remainder  is made up of contributions  from PTA's from Port Mellon  to Seehelt.  Application for the scholarship from students must be  in the hands of the committee  secretary, Mrs. L. Knowles by  May -27. Purpose of the scholarship is for further advanced  training.  The scholarship will be presented on a basis' of high  marks and requirements are  interest, good citizenship and  an average cf 80 percent in  departmental or grade 12  courses. In the event high  marks are insufficient to qualify there .will be a bursary for  the same amount, $250 and  qualifications for it are interest, good citizenship, at least  120 credits and a reasonable  mark in courses pertinent to  advanced study.  The Board of Trade at its  last meeting Monday night  started the ball rolling for establishment of a Community  Park on the Brothers' Memorial park property just a stone's  throw from Danny's-motel on  Seehelt Highway.  Mr.     William      Sutherland,  president  of    the    Board    of  Trade was empowered by the  meeting to    form    a    steering  committee for the  purpose of  furthering the plan. This committee will approach all other  associations, societies and    organizations for the purpose of  getting a representative    from  each to form a larger committee to arrive at    some    agreement as to what   benefit    the  park can have  for  the    ccm-  . munity.  C. P. Ballentine introduced  James W. Wardrup, president  of the B.C. Fairs Association  who made the announcement  that the Brothers' Memorial  Park would be available for  community effort. Mr. Ward-  rup's main theme was the use  of the park property for fair  grounds and' showed how government assistance could be  obtained and what effect established buildings would  have on the fair. He said the  governments, both provincial  and federal, would be able to  send, exhibits which would add  greatly to the prestige of the  fair.  He used as his text, as he  dubbed it, the word "Co-operation." He urged that all local  associations and societies get  together and arrive at a definite conclusion as to what  should be done with the property, ^eryjone^shot^ .:.  behind whatever committee is  formed to make the venture  worthwhile.                               ,  As the meeting developed  the idea it was shown that a  community hall could be built  on the property. There could  be a baseball diamond and a  football field and then when  it came fair time greater expansion of the fair would result with the fair situated on  a property which would allow  more room,.  L. S. Jackson, one    of    the  Honomff^inrts  A silver tea service was presented to Leu and Harry Winn;  following their relinquishing  control ���of the Telephone Office. The presentation on Tuesday, was made by the operators and linemen at Gibsons  and Seehelt.  The Women's Institute presented Mrs. Winn with a lovely brooch and Mr. and Mrs.  Wesley Hodgson presented the  Winns with a booklet containing an article on retirement���  the Indian Summer of Life ���  written by Mrs. Hodgson.  The District manager and  staff of the B.C. Telephones  in North Vancouver presented  the Winns with a beautiful  table lighter and ash tray.  Both Mr. and Mrs. Winn express their deep appreciation  and offer a' heartfelt thanks  to all those who have been so  thoughtful concerning them  following their retirement.  Jackson family in the Brothers' Memorial Park outlined  some of the history behind the  park and said it was presented  by G. S. Jackson, the eldest of  the brothers who had been  logging in this area for many  years. He also added that he,  Robert Burns, and Robert Mc-  ���Nicol were trustees of the  Memorial Park.  The     Brothers'       Memorial  Park has  a highway frontage  of 247 feet    and    goes    back  some 800 feet and has a slight  upgrade from  front to    back.  It would require clearing and  Mr. Jackson was of the opinion  some cash could be raised from  the timber now standing.    Mr,  Jackson thanked the speakers)  for their interest in the move.  As a summing up,    speaker  Mr. Pepper,  manager of    the  Port Moody fair spoke straight  from  the   shoulder   and     told  the meeting it had wasted    an  hour or more discussing building, rents and other such matters when the first thing they  had to do was organize a body  so it could take over the property.  Soap Box Derby trials were  explained to members of the  board when Mr. Sutherland  askd how many would be sponsoring boys t0 take part in the  event at Seehelt. He said ���'  had the names of four boys  who wanted to enter and he  wondered if any of the merchants would help support  the lads. The matter was left  for further development.  The slate of efficers for the  next year Board of Trade op��  erations as presented by the-  nominating committee composed of Mrs. J. P. Stewart,  G:r P. -Ballentme, commissioner  and Lock Knowles were:  Rusty Smith, banker, president; Danny Smith,t motel operator, vice-president; Harold  Wilson, real estate, secretary;  Rae Kruse, druggist, treasurer;  executive, William Sutherland, past. president and public works employee; Bob Ritchey, contractor; Harry Rei-  chelt, transportation; Norm  Hough, dairy farmer; George  Hunter, water taxi; Walt Ny-  gren, commercial fisherman;  Eric Inglis, trucking; Ed Sher-.  man, pulp mill superintendent  and Rely Spencer, logger.

Though the phrase is now familiar to every reader  of jour daily press, many laymen are still vague about its  implications and if pressed for a definition might well  fall back on the schoolboy classic "Woodman, spare that  tree.'"  With May 22 to 29 designated by the prime minister as Forest Conservation Week, the attention of all  Canadians is focussed on conservation .and its significance  in the national economy.  Reduced to its simplest terms, conservation means  maintaining a forest in a state of maximum production.  Expressed even more succintly, we might say "Conservation means wise use."  Quite soon .the Sunshine Coast will obtain some of  the finest publicity it could get. Work has been proceeding  on the idea for ?ome little time.  Could it be that some of the thinking along the Sunshine Coast continues to live ir a two-boats-a-week atmosphere insteaa of seven-ferries-a-day.  Those individuals suffering radio interference an4  who have received a long list of possible causes from the  Federal Dept. of Transport may suspect that at least the  department is sympathizing with them even though interference contmu&s.  "We printed an Annual   /#  We printed an annual tljis  year at Elphinstone to record',  the important events of the  school year as a momento for  the pupils.  That sounds- a    simple,  straightforward   statement,  doesn't it?      And    conclusive!  There are the Who, What,  When, Where and Why of  newspaper writing. What more  is t0 be said?  Ah no, dear reader! Don't be  mislead by the simplicity of  the statement. It has omitted  the Hciw of a good newspaper  lead ��� and that HOW has  nothing of the directness,  straightforward clarity and  conciseness that we so innocently assumed were the sum  and substance of publishing!  : To begin with our teacher-  sponsor, Mrs. Day ��� bless her  for her brainwaves, and no  wonder her hair so often  stands right on end ��� the  wonder is that she has any  hair left to stand ��� got the  bright idea that since we were  a creative writing class, we  should do the whole year-book  in poetry. Have you ever seen  a group of fifth-class prose  writers trying to write first-  elass poetry?  But eventually, after writing, correcting, revising, rewriting, editing, re-editing, rewriting, we got ready for  printing. "Now," we thought,  comes the fun! the easy part!  We are through with the head-  work and  ready for acticm!"  Oh, the intricacies of a  printing press! The rollers  wouldn't touch all parts of  the surface; the ink came in  blobs or not. at all; the platen  was lopsided and the bed was  Just when we thought things  were about td work out right,  not solid; the chase was    too  loaded, and the furniture was  not     properly     quoined     or  ' planed. We were all    muscle  bound trying to  get    enough  pressure to print a picture,  someone dropped the lead and  we all sat down    sorrowfully  to reset type and keep tempers  and be patient when every second' line    turns    out    upside-  down or backwards.  At last we got a page printed, all 325 copies of it:    Then  the decorater    presented    her  design, and a new kind of adventure began. ���- stencil cutter  blues,  ink  changing     rainbow  hues, trying to get a blue eye  to fit into  a  brown deer (the  blue landed in his ear or    on*  his nose as often as in the eye)  making the mimeograph work  fit properly around the printing already done.  Finally we had all 32 pages  printed, decorated and, ready  to assemble into books.,"' Even  then we were not ready for the,  sigh of relief we haved.

MAYDAYS   AND    HAYDAYS  Having been concerned recently with nebulous projects  for clearing land by virtue of  being a member of the Farmers Institute I "made a tour  of the district with a couple of worthy wights who are  looking into such matters. Travelling eld trails to scenes of  long ago I thought that my observations might provide some  sidelights of interest if transferred to paper.  I always find it interesting  to wander back into local history when, en some expedition  because for me, even stumps  are there yet from 45 years ago  where a skidroad crossed the  creek and traces of the branch  roads we    made    are    to    be  found without much    trouble.  *      *���      #  The place where these chaps  had their final looksee was  one of the first places where  I met up with the Finns right  at this same creek and in a  mass of charcoal debris stood  a trim four-room frame house,  garden, cowbarn, and chicken-  house, with us net  200 yards  away loading shingle, bolts.  The fire of 1906- had run  through this area and had  made a clean job of the old  slash that was nearly grown  over but left plenty of cedar  snags standing and down gocd  for making into shingle bolt.  This is the place where the  Englishman learned to drink  coffee with a cube of sugar in  the teeth; nice doings and  nice days.  *      *      *  Comparing the two pictures,  in my mind separated by so  many years I find now 41  spring lambs gamboling on the  place; a sure evidence of a  lively situation. It forcibly  brought back to me the grimy  charcoal covered figure of the  Finlander who with his wife  cleared that spot by hand and  his herculean efforts, to work  on that small farm and labor  also behind a span of horses  logging all day. This chap on  the place now is a proper farmer and quite emphatic that  he can and does make a good  living off this ground.  It is hoped we are going to  see a revival of farming in. the  district. Maybe the pendulum  is started back, if this is so  it can be that we shall have  the smell of fresh cut hay  blowing across the meadow-  land as it used to do. It is a  grievous thing to have seen  the alders and briars swallow  up the results of toil and anguish and some of those little  fields that were such a bouquet of smell and beauty are  clean gone as if thy had never  been.  It was and still is a pleasant  land but we have not done  well by it; cut and slash;  leave it and get out. Maybe  the overflow cf the city will  flood in and make some semi-  agricultural order out of the  chaos. The famous field of  Mayday fame of 1912 was  hard by and although considerably shrunken, is still apparent. Here was organized on  that day a local of the Socialist Party of Canada and' in  retrospect it is meet to blush  for the mishmash of arrogance,  and ignorance that was paraded on that occasion. There was  a record crowd there though  and it has never been equalled to my knowledge and these  were the top of the hill folk  only.  There was an invisible boundary that separated the district The years rolled on and  soon exposed all the frailties  that beset such idealistic  .groups and eventually the  large hall and property of the  organization disintegrated and  the alder and the Christmas  trees took charge cf the remnants. The hopes and fears are  gone too, swept away by the  night wind over the hill. Quite  aptly "gone with the wind."  THIS DOG BECAME FAMOUS  Nipper, the most famous  dog in the world, is this year  celebrating his fiftieth Canadian birthday. In England, he  is 16 years older.  Born in Bristol, England, in  1884, Nipper is a little black  and white fox terrier who has  been well-known to four generations of Canadians. His  fame which spread around the  world in the early days of the  present century was created  almost entirely by newspaper  advertising. His picture has  been reproduced in newspapers millions of times and  it has always been the same  picture with the dog in the  same pose, sitting with ear  cocked towards an old-fashioned gramophone horn.  The little dog who made a  trade    mark    and    a    slogan  known  to millions    was    not  just    an    advertising    artist's  dream, Nipper actually    lived  and on his own took the pose  in which;he is still pictured^  The'' popular    scenic    artist  Barraud    was   "Nipper's    first  master.    He    brought    Nipper  home as  a puppy  and    while  his master   painted,  the   little  dog would curl up in the studio and    watch    him..     After  some particulai'ly lavish    production at the Princess,    Barraud would be summoned    to  the   stage  for  a  curtain    call  and with him, in front cf the  footlights,  would   appear  Nipper. A drawing of master and  dog was once published in    a  Bristol newspaper.  Unfortunately, the scenic artist died young and the Barraud home was broken up.  Nipper was adopted by his  late master's brothers, Francis and Phillip, two professional photographers in Liverpool. In his new home the  dog transferred his attentions  from an artist's to a photographer's studio. Here, he was  attracted to a strange new device, a    talking    machine    to.  ANGLERS SPEND $100 EACH  Returns indicate that an average cf $100 is spent annually in pursuit of fish by each  angler. This sum includes  money spent for transportation  and accommodation, equipment, and other outlays connected with their sport. There  are about 100,000 resident  danglers in British Columbia.  The economic survey is being  conducted by the Game Commission.  ���rfftj;;:- :t.   ���     '���    ���    ;���   ���.,-,-.  ..  \ f BEER TO 14 COUNTRIES  ; 2,342,547 gallons of Canadian beer, ale, porter worth  $3,281,971 were exported to  14'countries in 1954,* most of  it to the United States. Smallest order.was from the Belgian Congo, which paid $132  for 90 gallons.  Corrugated boxes, paper  boards, brown wrapping papers and other such products,  where strength is featured, are  usually manufactured from unbleached sulphate pulp known  as "kraft" pulp.  which he often sat listening.  To Francis Barraud it seemed that the terrier might be  listening in the hope of hearing once again his master's  voice, and in the pose which  has now become famous the  photographer - painter painted  Nipper quizzically attentive to  the old phonograph. Barraud  called his painting "His Master's Voice."  A phonograph manufacturer  saw the painting and was so  impressed by it that he not  only bought it but changed the  name of his company to "His  Master's Voice Gramophone  Company." In 1901, Eldridge  R. Johnson, founder of the  Victor Talking Machine Company Ltd. in the United States,  acquired the American rights  to the painting. He made it  available to the Berliner Gramophone Company, of Montreal, and in 1905 the dog  made his first Canadian appearance. . ;���       '���>...    -  The picture coritmued to be  usod by the Berliner Company's Canadian, successor, the  Victor Talking Machine Company of Canada Limited,  which later became RCA Victor Company*.

Editor: You are to be com-  -plimented on stimulating' interest on. a local subject which  many of those concerned seem  to regard as an unimportant  matter ��� namely Gambier Island School.  A letter to the Editor in edition of May 12. following your  article of several weeks ago is  most interesting as the writer  of the letter obviously feels he  ��� has much information to offer.  It is unfortunate however that'  he had not the. strength of his  convictions to sign his letter. I  wonder if he was one of   the  ten taxpayers out   of    several  hundred who    were    able    to  find time to  attend the    last  well  advertised  school    meeting? If so; he must have had  laryngitis that day, as a unanimous resolution was passed by  the meeting and submitted   to  the School Board to urge the  Board to proceed at once with  establishment of a  school    in  West Bay. It was therefore    a  democratic choice, not that   of  the representative.    He speaks  in his letter of a "site chosen  by the    so-called    Representative" ��� I might say that to the  best   of    my    knowledge    no  steps have as yet been taken  by the school board t0 acquire  any specific site.      I am    hot  sure from the letter  whether  Mr. Taxpayer infers the Representative is "partly approved"  or thejt the site is- "partly approved."  If  the  former inference is intended, I quite agree  that    that    point    is    obvious  4  from the co-operation received  from certain taxpayers on the  Island. .  ;,  Furthermore I defy anyone  to "fully" represent individuals who change their minds  with the change of wind.  Could this man be one of those  who rooted for road construction on the Island in 1950 but  now has nothing but disparaging remarks to make about  the efforts?  ' I am pleased to be of what  Public service I can to the  taxpayers of our island, but  should like t0 point out to  those whose favor I apparently do not hold that Education  is a year round concern, not  one to get riled up about every  five years. As a taxpayer and  parent. of two school-age children who are now taking correspondence lessons,. I am naturally very concerned with  some immediate solution to  the problem, and still feel that  a centrally located school with  improved-land communication .  is the most equitable plan.  I quite recognize the efficiency of the present water  taxi service and the operator is  to be commended, however I  fail to see,how this run can be  extended to serve other than  the west side of the island as  the length of his run would be  doubled. I certainly have no desire to despatch, the five children from Center Bay at 7  a.m. on a dark stormy winter  morning for a two hour boat-  ride before school. I believe  the ccst to the taxpayers of  such a run embracing the  whole Island population would  be around $5000 per school  year. Perhaps this is the solution, but that certainly is not  for me as representative to decide. I am however convinced  that until some reasonable arrangements can be made regarding education, Gambier Island can expect to be by-passed by the developments being  enjoyed by our neighboring  communities.  Thank you for this space in  y��ur columns Mr. Editor, and  please assure the "Gambier Island Taxpayer'" that the    lo  cal School Board and the dept.  of Education, still retain .sufficient authority to prevent any  errant Representative frcan  throwing, away taxpayers'  money on. schools in the wilderness (?) if they have some  more reasonable solution.  There will undoubtedly , be  a public meeting called in the  near future and I trust we  shall have the opportunity to  discuss our mutual problems  with  "the unhappy taxpayer."  G. O. Fahrni,  School Representative,  Gambier Island.  way. of saying that they did  not expect it. The proposed  trail from Centre Bay to West  Bay was also mentioned', and  he stated that a survey showed  that the distance is 3.8 miles  (much to0 far for school children to walk)   It is understood that our  school representative, Mr.  Fahrni, has asked that a  schocl be built at West Bay.  Will he get it? I do not know  end probably your guess is as  good as mine, but I think there  are a few points which we  should all bear in mind. I am  told there are now five children at Centre Bay, all of  whom will be of school age by  next September and it would  seem a logical inference that  whether this school is established or not, a school boat  will still be required at Andys  Bay and another one at Cen->  tre Bay.���Charles A. Lett, J.P.  property where the brigade attended ��� the municipality to  fix the charge.  R. S. Clarkson.  Editor: I have read with  considerable interest the items  appearing in the News lately  about the proposed school for  Gambier Island. In this connection it is well to bear in  mind that there are a number  of scattered communities oh  this island, some of which are  rather far apart.  Our road system has been  developing slowly, but a new  road to Andys Bay which has  been under construction for  several years is yet unfinished;  and our district engineer, Mr.  Gilmour recently told me that  although they intended tp.  work on it he could not promise me completion this year;  which I gathered' was a polite-  Editor: In. answer to. your  Editorial and Mr. Bunyan's  article on "Fire Protection" I  should like to make the following observations.  I. The majority of the people residing in the proposed  district or zone have not running or .municipal water,  but  ��� depend on wells, which in  many cases would not supply  sufficient water toi extinguish  a fire.  II. Many of those who have  municipality water have not  sufficient sized pipe to be of  mucin use in case of fire. I believe a 2-inch pipe is the smallest for a hydrant to use.  III. If houses some distance  frcm fire hall got alight, even  before a neighbor with a  phone was notified to give the  alarm, and the Fire Brigade  reached the fire it would < be  too late to save the building.  As regards the Village Municipality I can quite see their  point of view about the GVFD  attending fires outside their  limits.��� could it not . be arranged for some fixed charge  to be made to the owner of the  Editor: Will you tell me  what benefit it would be for  this end of the Peninsula to  work for the hospital at Pender Harbour. As far as I can  gather it would cost $40 for  some one to accompany one in  ambulance and. return from  Gibsons, and it would, be no  doubt nearer $50 from Port  Mellcn.  If we take a taxi from Gib-  sens it would be $19, for patient, and approximately $5  return if the friend did not  come back immediately. Then,  there is the question of visiting.  I presume the bus goes a  couple of times a week, while  if we go to "Vancouver General to visit we have a choice of  five times a day, for $3.50 including carfare in place of  about $11. The Vancouver  Geneyal, or the North Vancouver Hospital is far and away  ahead of Pender HarbGur    as  Coast News May 19, 1955 3  far as the cost is concerned.  But there is another question. It is the. condition of the  road in the winter time.  There may be fog, and there  may be icy surfaces, which  will add to the anxiety of patient and those accompanying  him. There are very few  lights compared to those go-  in.g  into Vancouver.  I think it is time this village started a move in favor  ol a hospital here. The peoi  should apply to the minister  of health collectively, and see  what can be done about it.  There should be a public meeting, well advertised so that  people will know about it and  be able to take their stand on  it. With,thanks, Helena M.  Gosden.

The program      comprised a  play,  a  variety   of   gymnastic  displays, glee club and orchestra selections and interpretive'  dancing.  The play, The Dyspeptic  Ogre, under direction of Mr.  Guppy, was a delightful skit,  by Grade VIII. Bruce Redman  as the Ogre and Wendy Yates  as the Jester were outstanding  in their parts. The Weeks Dinners, the Bey Scouts, the Cook  and Frances, all performed  creditably.  The Junior group of ^.the  . school choir under Mrs. Vernon's clever handling produced several delightful numbers.  The boys, under Mr. Stephenson's training, displayed  their prowess in marching, relay races, running and diving  rolls, solo dives and handstands, vaulting and pyramids.  They exhibited excellent  timing and rhythm.  Again, the glee club presented selections arranged by  Leslie Bell and R. M. Stutts.  The girls' physical education'  groups, directed by Mrs. Glass-  ford, presented marching,  rhythmic exercises, folk dancing, stunts and tumbling, and  interpretive, dancing, accompanied by the drummers of the  bugle band.- Their performances were neat and graceful.  Throughout the evening, the  school orchestra, as trained'by  Mr. Peterson, provided incidental and background music,  and presented some very pleasantly performed selections.  Th whole group was applauded heartily. '  .

Village Commission who sat  in as spectators.  Before the meeting the students were entertained by the  Village Commission to a dinner at the Mariner Cafe after  which they were driven  around the village in three  ears belonging to the commissioners when they sized up  seme-problems that they could  tackle, when at the hub of village business in the municipal  hall.  During' the meeting the  mock commissioners learned  the difference between village  roads and arterial roads when  someone brought up the mat- >  ter of street signs and why  they were not in certain spots.  It was brought cut that the  province was responsible for  arterial roads and the village  for village roads   only.1  Letters were read and discussed including one concerning the setting up of beach  park seats. Then there was the  matter of converting an old  building into  habitable  prem  ises. Supplying qf services outside the village area was giy-  en a going over, the problem  of the. pump house and the  passing of a bylaw was completed by its ^presentation for  a final''reading.

Scotland,  England and Wales. He stayed  a week in Wales visiting relatives thence to London. He  was impressed watching the  House of Commons in session,  hearing R. A. Butler, the finance minister, reply to questions on the budget. Maldwyn  says the almost languid informality of the place is startling,  yet you realize you are watching the business of a great nation being conducted.  From. London,    Maldy went  to Paris. "Paris was fabulous.  It is a magnificently beautiful  city, with a unique charm and  elegancy," he writes. Then he  visited Versailles and the Louvre.  From France he travelled to  Germany, from whence his  latest letter was posted. Maldy  should be home about the  middle of June. Maldwyn reports he had a wonderful year.  Everywhere he met with the  utmost of kindness.  NEW POWER LINE  The area between Barriere  and Little Fort in the North  Thompson Valley is to be electrified this year by the B.C.

All  summer after the opening,  Jules and Jean Mainil and  their stalwart John kept on  working, improving bit by  bit the greens fairways, the  clubhouse and the equipment.  This year, the greens have  been packed and oiled, the  new grass has taken hold    on  Roberts Creek  The monthly meeting of  Roberts Creek Community as^  sociation was held May 10 in  the Legion Hall.  It was moved that further  letters be sent regarding the  dust, and condition of roads,  also letters were~ read; from  Hon. James Sinclair, minister  of fisheries, and the Hon. A.  Brassard, minister of transport regarding our request for  an official notice, prohibiting  bicycles on Roberts Creek  wharf. In these letters we are  advised that there is, nothing  Ottawa can do about this, and  that the responsibility rests  with the parents, who should  keep children with bicycles off  the wharf.  Next meeting of this organization will be Tuesday, June  14 in Legion Hall and any person interested in a Community  Spolrts Day this year is asked  to attend. Whether the Roberts Creek Improvement association sponsors a Community Sports Day or not, will depend upon this meeting.  Power cuts  are explained  Recent power outages were  caused by switchboard difficulties which were hard tot locate  according to Mr. S., Howlett,  B.C. Power Commission manager in this area. The power  breaks were brief but had  plant employees puzzled so an  expert in such matters was  flown in and he soon located  the trouble and eliminated  further breaks.  J. W. KELLY  Mr. J. W. Kelly, brother of  Mr. Dave Kelly, Bay Road,  died on May 12. He was a  member of the Canadian Legion and a life member of the  Army and Navy Veterans Association. Mr. Kelly was a vet  of the First World War having served overseas with the  C.E.F. The funeral service  was held on Monday at the  Anglican church. Burial was  made in Seaview Cemetery.  Rev. H: U. Oswald conducted  the service.  NRC    SCHOLARSHIPS  : Twenty-eight University of  British Columbia undergraduate and graduate students will  share nearly $40,0p0 in scholarships, bursaries, studentships and fellowships awarded  this week by' the National Research Council. The NRC  awarded a total of $336,300 to  *267 students- on its latest  honors list.  most of the course, signs have  been renewed and benches repainted.  The great piles of stumps  and roots have completely disappeared;. The small islands of  trees have been largely cleaned of underbrush, the banks of  the stream have been trimmed  and other areas cleaned up, reducing the loss of balls to the  irreducible minimum.  Beds   of   flowering     bulbs  have been planted,   some     of,  which are blooming,  in spots,  where one comes upon   them  unexpectedly along the course.  In the tiny clubhouse, there  are illustrated "rules" which  should delight all golfers, dub  or expert.  Near the 19th. hole, Jules  has set up the first frame for  his shuffleboard games. He intends to have three courses  completed, so that league play  will be possible. Curling enthusiasts may find this game  a cure for some of their nostalgia.  Best news otf all for the Scot  golfers is that play will be at  half of last year's rates, Jules,  says.  Work has also progressed in  the park-like woods beside the  golf course, which will make  the whole surroundings a very  enjoyable spot fotr an hour or  two of pleasant pass time.

A marriage of local interest,  took place in Vancouver on  April 25 between Miss Lyrxne  Peverette and Ronald Blom-  gren. Mr. and Mrs. Herbert  Berdahl were attendants. The  young couple are residing at  Roberts Creek.  Gene Blomgren is spending  a vacation a't home after completing his third year at the  University. He was a member  of the cast of the UBC Players  presentation Barretts of. Wim-  pole Street given at the High  School on May 6.  Mrs. Annie Louisa Taggart,  Beach Avenue, passed peacefully away in her sleep on  May 12. She is survived by her  sister, Miss Ada Dawson, with  whom she made her home.  The funeral service was held  at St. Aidan's. Church, May 14,  Rev. H. U. Oswald officiating.  Interment was made in Ocean  View Cemetery, Vancouver,  May 17.  Friends of Mrs. Wilson,  Beach Ave., regret to learn  that she will not be returning  to the Creek as planned. She  will be greatly missed in the  community.

The'Women's Auxiliary to  the Roberts Creek United  Church put on a drive recently fotr used, clean clothing for  Korea. The response was gratifying and the members of  the WA would like to thank  all those who contributed.

This was  decided at a meeting May 12  in Gibsons School Hall when a  resolution for the winding up  process was presented and  passed. Robert Burns, the secretary was appointed as liquidator. .  The financial statement prepared by R. T. Ffrench, the  auditor showed! possible assets  at $4,191.46 of which $390.80  was not immediate cash, covering one small account - receivable and an inventory to^  ailing $383.48. The financial  statement and the report by  Robert Burns do not hold out  much hope for complete realization  of  the  $390.80;  Mr. Burns' report follows: I  think this is about the 34th annual report to be made to the  members of   this    association,  and I believe it   is   the    19th  time I have been privileged to  present the report for the board  of directors. Very possibly    it  may' be the last of    such    reports. -  Sale of the cannery land and  buildings was effected! for cash  at the minimum' price set by  an earlier general meeting; at  the same time, to    the    same ���  purchaser, the old boiler    and  fittings were sold at the nominal price  of $10.  Such price  of course, is ridiculously small  in relation to any replacement  cost, and even much less than  the depreciated    book    value.  However,    from all investigations I,  and    other    directors  could make, we could not get  any icffer whatever; apparently the only    alternative    sate  would have been    for    scrap  iron, delivered, in  Vancouve.  and it seemed certain that we  would,  not    realize   en    that  enough  to pay handling    and  transportation.  I had entertained) hopes of  doing better on the cocking  pots, -which were really first  class items, of their type, but  again the only offer we could  get was scrap copper price in  Vancouver, we finally1 sold  them for scrap price, as it became necessary to get them  out of. the $vay of the new  owners.

As indicated by the notice  of the extra-cSrdinary resolution accompanying. the call to  meeting; the board is recommending that, this meeting resolve to put the association into voluntary liquidation, and  that you appoint a liquidator  ' for that purpose. Net worth of  the association as shown by  the balance sheet indicates  that result of such liquidation  would pay about $29 for each  $25 share. This, of course, is  highly illusory; actual returns  per share will depend largely  on two things, as follows:  1. How much, if anything,  will be realized in cash from  the theoretic $383.48 in inventory?  2. How much can the many  unavoidable expenses of liquidation be heid down?  As regards the first question  I frankly have nD    hopes    at  all. As  regards the second,  I  believe quite a bit can be done  by careful, or to speak frankly, miserly management.    But  even so, there are a long list  of things that must be    done,  fees to be paid, etc., that will  certainly run into money.      I  do think, though,    that    with  careful management, and plenty    of    luck,    the    members  should    finally   . realize    very  close to par. That I hope covers in a general manner    the  more materialistic matters. Be-  for  concluding,  and   assuming  that the    recommendation.  of  the board-as to winding up is  approved, I    would    like    to  glance at a very different side  cf "the picture, and in so doing  look back on work done, and  the men and women who did  it.  It cannot fail to be saddening to those people who;    beginning more than  35     years  ago* to create a community asset such as    this    association*,  now see it finally    pass    into  oblivion.    But the work    was  not wasted;  such  work never  ���is^vasted.' Many thousands  of  dollars that  otherwise    would  never have come into the district did come because of the  cannery.  Often  it was  spread  around    in     pitifully      small  amounts, but it    was    spread,  and I think it safe to say that  even  those small  sums    were  often very welcome.      It was  all part of the development of  the  community,  for better  or  for worse. Above all it showed  that a group of people working, together can do. much,  if  they will continue to work'to-  gether and have the    courage  to rise above the many disappointments.  Many people contributed, in  many different ways: those  who put money into membership shares, in many cases,  people who did not have the  slightest intention of ever being able to benefit directly,  but wished t0 help with a community effort; those who put"  in long hours of back-breaking  toil clearing land and growing  fruit; those who served for  years as directors, and who often might have been more aptly termed "chore boys;" and  those girls who worked in the  cannery, often for a mere pittance, but who were always  on the job when needed, and  who stayed on the job until  the days' cook was finally put  away. It is an honor to me to  have been associated with that  kind of people.  . ��� Robert Burns.  MRS.  LUCY   WHITE  , Death claimed    Mrs.    Lucy  White in Vancouver on    May.  15 after a long illness.  A resident of this district  for many years, she will be  missed by many friends.  Mrs. White leaves one son.  Dr. William White of Vancouver, and four grandchildren,  and one brother, William Harrison ih< England.  She was hi her 75th year,  and was predeceased by her  husband, Dr. Franklin A.  White.  The funeral was on Tuesday afternoon, from the Simmons and McBride Chapel, the  Rev. J. W. Robinson officiating. Burial was in the Ocean  View Burial Park.  presented to the taxpayers will  be late in June. In connection  with    the    building    program  there   is  apparently some difference  of opinion   on    Gambier Island as to the advisability  of building a  scho.cl    on  the Island and before any final  decision    is    made    Inspector  Rendle and the secretary will  visit Gambier  and    interview  as many Gambier Island residents as possible to obtain first  hand  information   as  to   their  views.  Transportation contracts for  1955-56 were considered and  it was agreed to call for tenders on contracts expiring in  June. In this connection it was  reported that an additional  bus would be required on the  Seehelt run. Contracts not expiring in June will be reviewed by the Transportation committee.  A pleasant interlude was enjoyed by the board when they  were invited to the High  School for lunch by Mrs. Evans, domestic science teacher^  A delicious lunch had been  prepared by the pupils under  the supervision of Mrs. Evans  and was much appreciated.  The maintenance foreman  reported good progress was being made on the grading . of  the new . Elphinstone High  School play area. The grading  and removal of stones was almost completed and ditching,  rolling and seeding would f'  low. The whole school site  comprises 11 acres and, including the school site, approximately six acres are now  cleared and will shortly be  in finished condition.  Coast News May 19, 1955 7  With regard to the    Bowea  Island School a visit was recently paid to this school   by  the    fire    marshall    and    the  board was instructed to change  the construction in the furnace  room in order to fire-proof it.  As no provision was made    in  the 1955 budget for an expenditure of this    nature    money  will have to be diverted   from  other    planned    improvements  at Bowen Island.  Correspondence    with    community associations at Egmont  with regard to  the watershed  at Waugh Lake,    which    supplies water for the school, was  read. The building of the   new  road to Earl Cove has opened  up the whole district considerably  and   the  watershed may  be taken up by private interests. The board agreed to support the application of the residents of Egmont to the department of lands for reservation  and protection of this    water-.-  shed.  The report of the principal  of the Elphinstone High school  advised the board that under  the sponsorship of the PTA an  address would be given at the  high school on Tuesday, June  7, by the minister of education, the Hon. R. Wllliston.  Cubs were given the use of  the school hall free two afternoons a week.  SECHELT  INSURANCE  AGENCIES  REAL   ESTATE  INSURANCE  Property   Management  T.

Every time you plan to  take off for some far corner  of the realm the wonders increase. Mind you the natural  wonders have already been  there but I refer to the official matters which add such  a pattern to the otherwise  simple travel.  You used to feel that if you  fathom the first page of the  Income tax returns without  redress to a doctor or some  potent liquid ycu had done  well but that is all elementary when it comes to travel  into some far reach of this  ever - so - small but distant  earth.  The passport is after all  just the beginning.

Everyone likes to keep track  of the money he earns.  At Imperial Oil.accountants teep close tab on.  every dollar the company receives. Auditors and  government tax people double check. Of every  dollar of Imperials income last year...  .-���:*:���.-  About 52cents  went to  purchase raw mateffate including crude oil (we  pay freight charges out of this too).  Roughly30 cents went in operating  and administrative costs, including the wages of  Imperials 13,000 employees.  1  10 cents went in texes to  federal provincial and municipal governments.  (This did nofr include provincial road taxes,)  About 4 cents  vyentb^kp  Jnto^he business  to help rtpbtt worn-out equipment  and provide forfuture needs.  ���^s  About 4 cents went  in dividends to the company's  shareholders.  MPERIAL OIL UNITED  have to start getting the special permits to the more carefully controlled areas.  The consular officials act  like ix bunch of teen-age high  school girls. They are all  after your picture... not just  once but two or three times.  When the picture is produced  and in some cases a health  certificate as well, this quiet  official disappears into the recesses of the consulate where  seme "invisible power" who  has never mastered the art of  handwriting stamps a heavy  endorsement on the clean pas-  port and then makes the  mark that passes for his sig- ���  nature underneath. After a  tedious wait the passport from  the inner presence is returned to you and you part with  a. few dollars, then set forth  for the next inner sanctum.  Then there is the matter  cf police. It is early apparent  that each jealous alien official  assumes that ydu are a gangster seeking refuge from your  own law and about to corrupt  his own sacred homeland, if  there is any room for more  corruption left there. So you  locate the village constable,  explain .to him that you need  a statement to the effect ehat  you are not known as an habitual criminal nor. an escapee, and that a search of the  records (if he can find them  behind the race course lists)  fails to turn up any colorful  details of your private social  .   behavior in the last five years.

There she  watched the potters at    work  and was astonished   at    their  methods of handling the clay  and the decrepit wheels.  With much gesticulating she  asked that she be permitted to  make a piece. They laughed  and gave her a great ball of  clay from which she broke off  about a third. "No, no," they  said, arid shook their heads.  "Yes, yes," she replied and  made ready to throw the clay  on the wheel} Horrified, they  signalled that the clay was not  to be thrown. Mrs. Lowe, however went ahead, and quickly  fashioned a bowl in her own  . usual way, much to the evident amazement and admiration, of the potters.  Some 450 miles from "Mexico City lies San Bias, until re- -  cently a ghost town and>formerly, by ^reason of its fine  harbour, well-sheltered, a par-  , adise for pirates and buccaneers. Now, with a fine new  highway, it is being re-discovered, and according to Mrs.  LoWe, has finer beaches and is  more beautiful than Hawaii.  Everywhere is evidence of  the artistry of these people.  Travellers pause, even at private cemeteries to view and  exclaim over the perfection of  the sculptured'.-.'. headstones.  One city, noted -for its art andi  visited by Mrs. Lowe and. Mrs.  Williamson, was Alamos, once ,  the center of the^ 'silver' world.  Nowhere on their trip, did  these two find better roads  than in Mexico.

I  once saw a newspaper article  to the effect that over 40,000  young people arrive in Toronto every year, and every Canadian city has a steady influx  ,    of newcomers.   Make  no mistake    about    it,    this    steady  stream of young people especially has a wholesome, stimulating effect    upon    life    in  larger centers.  A great Canadian citizen  said recently that he had never  seen a' railway train until at  nineteen he got on board one  for a big city. He wrote home  to tell his parents about men.  eating in the- dining-car;. he  could hardly believe it.  I hope young people do not  feel self-conscious when they  launch out in their new surroundings. I think young men  feel worse than the girls when  exposed to any kind of ridicule. No lad likes to be laughed at, and ridicule can be a  cruel, keen weapon.  Quite a number of years ago  a young man left his village  to attend a college in a large  city. Everything was new to  him, and for several weeks his  eyes opened wide with, wonder. He had all the nervousness and awkwardness which  so many feel when first making acquaintance with city  life,    ���  *      *      *  In his pocket he carried a  letter from his home minister  to the pastor of a city church.  He wisely handed in his introduction and began to feel  more at home. When college  opened the real thrills began.  Gradually he overcame his  shyness, made a few friends  and began t0 feel more ' at '  home.  He was asked to join a  college fraternity, and after a  little hesitation, he agreed to  do so. His friends told him it  was an honour and he felt  flattered. Some of the fellows  seemed a bit noisy and talkative, but he knew that it took  all kinds to make a world, so  said nothing.

CAMPBELL  SECHELT 83 W  The first meeting of that fraternity disappointed him. , He  didn't care for the    conversation which was mainly profane  and when the president of'the  group- took out a pocket ilask  and passed it around he made  a  quick decision.  To  the  boy  sitting next to him    he    said:  ���T���: ��� , '. _  .   .   50,000 moose  in province  How many moose and deer  are there in, British Columbia?  This question is often asked,  and the answer is "Nobody  knows."  However, biologists  of    the  Game Department have    ventured  an   estimate,  but  stress  the fact that the figures    are  an estimate only.    It is based  upon what available  infoi-ma-  tion has been gathered. ih;   re-  cent years.      The figures are:  50,000    moose    and      500,000  deer. The estimated kill of big  game animals during the 1954  hunting season is: 40,000 deer,  5,000 mcose, and  500 elk.  Officials feel that the game  crop is under-harvested in  some areas and point out that  some of the big game winter  ranges are seriously over-  browsed. When this condition-  is present, not enly do many  animals die of malnutrition  and from other causes, but the  food plants themselves are often damaged.  "Here's where I quit," and he  did...   He was a quitter, and that  isn't a nice word but it all depends upon what it is we quit.  As a matter of fact it took    a  great deal of courage to leave  the group and   to    tell    them  later why he    had    done    so.  The easy thing for him to do  at that moment was> to    have  sat   still   and   said    nothing.  There isn't anything    in    the  world harder to face than ridicule, and   that   is   what    he  faced that day.  That student is now a man���  no longer young, but widely  known and respected. In  speaking to some friends recently about that experience,  he said: "I was a quitter that  day, but I know now it was  one of the wisest decisions I  have ever made in my life."  Our quotation today is by  the son of Dwight L. Moody:  "My father was greater and  better than any sermon he  ever preached."

"Over the holiday week-end  just before the National Highway Safety Conference ��� the  first long summer week-end���  the traffic on cur roads will be  heavy. Let us all, in every  part of Canada, now plan    to  observe this holiday by preventing accidents of every  kind on streets and highways.  Let us see if we can reduce  them to the lowest figure in  Canada's .history for these  three days.  "We can do this, and I believe will do so, if we realize  that such accidents mean loss  in life, in suffering and material damage. Let us then take  care to see that none of us is  tiie cause of such loss and injury anywhere in our * great  country."  Highway Safety Week-end  immediately precedes the  opening of the National High-  :>way�� Safety Conference in Ottawa on May 24. The first national  conference on highway  safety, convened, by the Canadian Good Hoads Association  will attract delegates from-"every province.

To a tourist passing through  last Sunday, Whitttaker Park  couldVvery well have been the  opening of one of the major  league baseball clubs instead  of the opening of the Sunshine"  Coast Little League.  The park was decked out in  flags and the public address  announcer was giving the  names of the players as approximately 500 people waited  to see the first Little League  baseball game on the Peninsula.  The four teams of the  league paraded .around the  park followed' by the Seehelt  May Queen: Jand attendants'  and flanked by the league executive.  Opening remarks were given by Harold Roberts and then  Magistrate Johnston threw the  first ball to- league president  A. Whiting to officially open  the season.     .  The first game was between  the Gibsons Firemen and    the  Tyees coming out on the   top  end of a 10-5 score.  In the second game the Wilson Creek Orioles downed the  Seehelt Cubs 23 to 6.  The Little League teams  gave the large crowd a good  demonstration of baseball and  as the season progresses the  fans will have many a thrill.  The proceeds icf $67 go into  the league treasury as will the  proceeds from all the league  games of the season. Each,  team in the Little League receives the same amount of financial assistance and no team  is given consideration before  another.  Now that Little League ball  is under way it is up to the  people of the Peninsula to support these youngsters by attending games.  Schedules are now available  and can be obtained from any  of. the executive ;of the league,  also" for the 'rabid fans there  will be summaries of all games  on the sports page of this pa-  Pender Harbour    Tyees    with   per.  An official THANK YOU  Editor: We, the undersigned!  woudl like to express through  the medium of your valuable  paper, the deep appreciation of  the Wilson Creek Little Leaguers, its officers and other of  ficials connected with the  league, for the moral support  shown by almost every community, from Pender to Port  Mellon.  The presence of so many interested people, who; displayed  such enthusiasm, speaks well  for theSisjBCcess, and future development'pf this hew movement.

Once again may we thank  you all, and conclude with the  Little League pledge: I trust  in God, I love my country, I  will respect its laws, I will  play fair, and strive to win.

BY  CHUCK  TOMPKINS  Being a sports writer has  both good and bad points. One  of . the bad points is when I  predict a winner as I did Wilson Creek over Port Mellon  last Sunday. By all reasoning  Wilson Creek should have won  the game but, as sports writers  are never to0 well liked by  coaches, I am the victim of  another wrong prediction.  I am not saying that coach  Gus Crucil had Wilson Creek  throw a game as we all know,  better than that, but I "can  well imagine the smirk on his  face after the game, and his  probable words, "That should!  fix that blankety-blank Tompkins."  After their 7-2 victory over  Wilson Creek it is rumored  that coach Elrnie Hume of  Port Mellon gave vent to his  feelings with this piece of literary greatness, "I would like  to see that blankety-blank 'I  Preddct's' face now." Well, all  I can say is that I'm glad you  read my column Ernie,. that  makes two of us.  The .Gibsons Firemen are  still the "winningest" team in  the league as they stretched  their streak to five games by  edging out the Merchants 10-7  last Tuesday and coming from  behind to take Seehelt 14-8 on  Sunday. . "      .:  Pender Harbour got their  second win of the . season  swamping Gibsons Merchants  18-5 on Sunday.  This Sunday the Firemen go  to Seehelt and.the ..way I see  it Seehelt still is not strong;  enough to cope with the power-  fur Firemen���so Firemen to  win.  Some of you have by* now  seen a number of the young  married women limping about,  the streets of Gibsons. I assure  you there is not an epidemic  of polio; it is just that the Gibsons married women's soft-  ball team is holding initial  workouts.  It's a funny thing, the coach  of the women's team doesn't  look at all like a woman, do  you Mr. McGean?  To Mike Poole of last year's  Firemen who is hospitalized  for some time: "Get well fast."
