STORE LICENCES ARE REVISED  Kleindale will  get power  S. B. Howlett,. district manager for the BC Power Commission at- Seehelt, announces  that since receipt of a petition  from the residents at Klein-  dale the commission has decided! to serve, that, area and  construction will be . undertaken along with the main  Pender Harbour extension as  Was originallyi planned.  The? decision not to serve  Kleindale came after a customer canvass showed too few  residents to be interested but  that decision is now reversedi  as a result of more people indicating their desire for ser-  ���vice..-:: :'; ''���_..  PENINSULA TELEPHONES  'According to / the latest BC  Telephones statistics there are  now 476 _ ^telephones ��� on the  Gibsons exchange and 370 operating through the Seehelt  exchange of which' 60 are in  the Pender Harbour ;area.  ��� In an effort to achieve a  more equalized license set-up  for retail stores the Village  Commission at its meeting on  June 28 decided to work out  a basis which they thought  would be more equitable than  the present practically unworkable method.  Under the -legislation the  Village Commission has the^  pawer to levy; a license for  every separate line carried by  stores but it was argued so  many stores came under the  heading of general merchants ������  carrying numerous lines for  sale that licensing according  to the legislation would put  most of them out of business.  As a result it was decided to  levy stores, carrying multiple  lines, On a basis of four distinct commodities which  would mean a $20 half-yearly  tax regardless of the number  of these lines carried.  According to the conclusion  reached by the commission,  stores handling one line of  business or goods only would '  be assessed the usual $5 such  as a baker or other single  business operation.  Chairman Drummond during the discussion said he pre  ferred to see better equalization of the present licensing  structure and suggsted a maximum $2/0 half-yearly license  be imposed and do away with  the method of licensing line  by line.  Clerk Robert Burns pointed  out this could not be done as  the legislation was specific  that licenses be imposed on  the individual lines each store  carried and that the commission could decide what those  lines were. As a result the  .commission decided to select  four lines carried by each  store and tax them on those  four only. This would do  away with taxing seasonal  lines carried for short terms.  Comniissioners Ballentine,  Crowhurst, Ritchey and Peterson all took part in the discussion and threshed it but thoroughly. Commissioner Ballentine suggested it might be a  good idea to. find out from  some comparable area what  form, the licensing took and  how it was applied.  Clerk Robert Burns was also instructed to write Woodwards store in Vancouver to  ascertain what- lines were being brought into this area ��by  truck so that proper licensing  cari be applied.  Commissioner Peterson reported the movement for a  wider water board under  which wider - fire protection  can be offered the surrounding  territory was not receiving  much support. He was of the  opinion the matter had better  be left alone until the Fall  when on Sept. 1 Gibsons fire  department will not be allowed to respond to outside calls  unless proper authority is obtained by those requiring such  assistance.  Commissioner Ballentine reported that as regards- work  on keeping down weeds and  work on the roads that more  had been done in the two  weeks,/ap to the ^time of his  reporting than had been done  in any other two weeks around  Gibsons. The matter of the  work ojq the school road was  reported arid it was mentioned  that Durant Ergins had done  a good job. An account covering $1,004, the unpaid portion of the bill for the work,  was ordered paid.  Other accounts passed totalled $621.75, which included  $265.95 for roads department,  $175.92 for the water department, $7.56 for the fire department and $172.32 covering  general expense.  The RCMP had a busy  week-end and something like  33 charges were laid ranging  from driving -without due care  causing an accident down to a  lone drunk.  Seechlt RCMP laid about  seven or eight charges "and the  Gibsons detachment laid 25  charges. Fourteen were for  speeding, five, for traffic violations, five accidents and one  drunk. -  The most serious accident  occurred on Monday .morning  on the S-turn on Sechert-high-  way west of Gibsons when a  tar..oil tanker usedf on road  construction left the pavement  oh. the turn at Charlie Klein's  arid rolled over once.  L. V. Cassie was driving, the  tanker at the time.  .The truck was . carrying ten  "tons of paving oil and lost  only five gallons as a result  of ; the. vehicle righting itself  after the roll. The driver suffered face lacerations and an  injured arm and shoulder. He  was . charged with driving  without due care and was  fined $25 and costs in Magistrate Johnston's court.  " "The^tfactor^ ^was"-' demolished  but the tanker was pracically  undamaged.  At 1 a.m. on July 1 Paul  Johansen failed to make the  turn at the west end of the S-  urn and. went through' the  checkerboard sign 75 feet into the ravine. The car ended;  up on its nose in the ravine  but the three occupants emerged uninjured except for a  shaking up. The RCMP investigated the accident.  Last Friday morning at  Cannery Road on Seehelt'  Highway three young chaps  from New Westminster were  in an accident when their car  left the road and" slid 100 feet  into the ravine there ending  up on its side. None of the  three in the car received injuries beyond, a shaking up.  Frank -Verhulst of Gibsons  was driving up the Seehelt  highway hill in Gibsons and  when blinded by the lights of  an oncoming car, crashed into the large stump on the side  of the road at the Gibsons  Building Supply premises. Extensive damage was caused :to  the bumper and grill! The  three occupants of the car  went through the windshield  suffering  facial  lacerations.  VONappeal  The public? response to the  appeal for VON funds has  been steady up to the present  with something like $1,000 or  more having been contributed,  according to the latest check  on the VON drive.  The VON executive reports  the Village of Gibsons Commission had voted $125 for  the fund and the Black Ball  Feries have contributed $25.  These contributions are excellent, officials reported, but to  reach the required $3,200 to  continue operations for the  next year a greater effort will  have to be made, the VON  executive reported.

Such is the considered view of the Senate Finance  Committee, which during 'the past several m months has.  made a careful study of public finance in Canada. The  rest of the world, it is clear, is not going to guarantee Canadian prosperity. Yet farm groups seeking- guaranteed  prices and higher prices, labor groups seeking guaranteed  wages and higher wages, and industrial groups seeking  subsidies, are all in fact asking thaib their prosperity be  guaranteed.  A continuation of this sort of thing, the Senate  Finance Committee warns, will "undermine self-reliance  and initiative." The responsibility for keeping the nation  on "the road of reason and common sense" is that of the  government, federal, provincial and municipal. As the  country's "responsible leaders" it is' the role of governments to "cultivate realistic resistance to that section of  the public which appears to think the public treasury inexhaustible."  The tragedy of it is that pressure groups seeking a  free ride aft the taxpayers' expense do not really benefit.  For if the end result of their efforts is toadd to debt and  unemployment, the entire nation suffers the consequences,  and the pressure groups along with them.  A look at the benchmarks  BY  L.S.J.  THE   EVICTION  ���  Mr. and Mrs. Haliaeetus  Eeucosephalus have been  most unceremoniously dispossessed. It was especially sa'd  as there were no rnore /left  of the type of site they must  have to exist. The characteristics of this devoted couple  necessitated' a site for the  house somewhere close to  this area. Their precarious  existence and the needs of the  family could not be sustained  except  at this spot.  *      *      *  They and their forbears  have lived around here for  countless years and -in the  past this place had been a  lush pasture for many of their  breed. The strange part of  this story is that their hoirie-  site had become of some value  because way down- south a  perfectly worthless rascal had  evolved a scheme- whereby a  family could move into a  $12,000 cottage for nothing  down and! a dime a week for  50 years at the expense of the  taxpayer.  *���*'*.   I  Truth is stranger than fiction and this is not ��� fiction.  From    Seehelt    to       Roberts  Creek there is- a 'place for  these more or less worthy-  folk to put their feet. My Sal-  ish friends owned the home-  site and it has been reserved  for their use for ever and��  ever but they could sell the  trees and our tree dwellers  lost the old home tree which  was hacked  down and carted  away to the mill.  .'��� *       *     /*  We here have watched this  couple for many years, or at  least the couple.... who live on  the place and I remember well  when there would be six or  eight couples all making a  fair living arid raising a family hereabouts. They keep the  beach free of all edible if obnoxious trivia, and the haltr  the lame, blindi, and misfits in  general are all grist to their  mill.  They have some silly habits  such as sitting on their door-  sill surveying their domain  making an easy mark for the  trigger happy juvenilia that  infest the beaches at times.  There is no doubt that in the  past around the river mouth  and bariks, and beaches * they  were.so numerous as to constitute a type of banditti, but as  I say, they always waited a  second too long for their own  good. Time was when a bounty of $1 was paid but that was  far north of here.  Now we have no trees left  for nesting or look-outs so  they will have to locate somewhere else. To obtain sustenance they must be in the tree  tops to watch and wait.  - We here who lived in their  bailiwick were often provided;  with an interesting study '<  nature in the raw, . a hapless  gull with oiled wings, or a  wounded duck, a spent fish  being picked up, with dexterity and despatch. Our neighbor  loves to, sit and watch the'os-  prey dive and start to lumber  eff with his catch and it is  then to see some action as  poor Mr. Osprey never, no  never  gets his dinner if    my  friend spots .him first.  *      *      *  It is very rarely observed  even.by us here with a grandstand seat, the terrific ��climax  of their mating generally on  a fine day in February when  these two drop like ,a ��� stone  from where they are nearly  out of sight in the blue .. t' .  within a few hundred feet of  the ground where; they part,  company in a whistle of  wings and a scream of sound  that rivals a. dive bomber.

And in that time we  have got good roads, and a  daily delivery of all goods and  services except mail, which  with the March of Progress, is  obsolete.     ~  '.  We are two hours from Vancouver by bus and car but by,  mail two or. three days at  best. And if we want return  answers we are fortunate if  we receive it in less than a  week. If we can get a daily  delivery of our tmail we will  be in a position to enjoy the  services of our local merchants instead of having to  get our. stuff from outside.   .  We are appealing to the  controller of postal delivery  for a daily delivery of our  mail and ask the support of  all those who can be influential in bringing this about.  The .post office was $3,000,000  to the good last year arid;. I  feel that if we ask for a c'aily  delivery of our mail we W'H  get our case cpnsicLered.

V-  autonomy regarded as endangered  Each quarter the Dominion  Bureau of Statistics publishes  a document called "National  Accounts���Income and Expenditure." The figures of the report afford a fairly accurate  series of "benchmarks" by  . which to judge how well the  enterprise of the national  economy is doing.  On a number of counts, the  ���latest DBS report for the first  quarter of 1955 makes encouraging reading. The Gross National Product, which is the  economists term for the value  of everything Canadians produced in the period, is 4 percent above the- 1954 average.  Not so encouraging, in terms  of prospects for Canadian exports, is the fact that labor in-,  come in the first quarter of  1955 was 4.5 percent above  the average for 1954, despite "  the fact that the number of  jobless was substantially larger. Investment income and  corporation earnings before  taxes, showed only slight  gains  in the first quarter    of  3955-;  Interesting and significant  are the figures on the expenditure side. Personal expenditure on consumer goods and  services was about two percent higher in the fhst quarter of 1955 than the average  for the preceding year.

Roadside  zoning  "Today  the roadside   is  the  most  unprotected     aspect     of  the highway problem."- says  Clarke Simpkins, chairman of  the British Columbia Auto-  mobile Association roads committee.  Zoning has been used to  protect property values in  populous communities since  early in the century, but only in comparatively recent  times has there developed the  idea of expanding the principle of zoning to protection of  highways against roadside  blight and resultant ������., traffic  paralysis.-  Roadside businesses, of one  sort or another, crowd the  highway on both sides and  the outer lanes become glutted with stop and go traffic.  What was designed as a speed  highway becomes a low speed  congested road with its outer  lane a veritable invitation to  disaster.  "Highway zoning, if adopted promptly." said Mr. Simp-  kins, "will stop the spread of  roadside blight and will provide for orderly developments  along the roadside in the future." ~ mm  while, show double; the increase shown in personal expenditure, arid in .���'���the first  quarter stood four percent  above the 1954 average. This  despite the fact that defence  expenditures remained level.  Federal non-defence expenditures, and provincial and municipal expenditures have all  increased over 1954.;.  ;%:;. Th^feqn:Go^^^.DBS figures is /reasonably.c^ar. Government expenditures at all  levels are'increasing more rapidly than*they ought. Labor income' too, is increasing at a  rapid pace. Unemployment,  however, is also high. It follows, therefore, that neither  high wages nor high government ; expenditures have any  appreciable effect in reducing  unemployment. In fact, the  DBS figures show* quite the  contrary. , \  COURTESY  with a smile  Courtesy with a smile!  That's the Boy Scouts.  Whatever they do they strive  to do well and courtesy is one  of their aims^ in life.  The Boy Scouts of the Peninsula are at a cross-roads.  They want to continue as Boy  Scouts and Ciiibs but they have  to have support.  Some 2,000 letters . have  been mailed out to people on  the Peninsula urging Sunshine Coast to rally to the  support of the Scout and Cub  movement.  These letters have appealed  for funds to help the Scout  movement continue. There has  been, a good response to date  but more funds will be required.  WASTE  NOW  USED  Many usese are being made  of wood fibre, wood pulp and  bark, among them being Sil-  vacon.

Municipal clerks are not too  happy about the provincial  government's new .method for  cbllecting -municipal taxes and  have the feeling that government departments are not too  sure themselves how the    system will operate.  This wias reported by Robert  Burns, clerk of the Village of  Gibsons -who attended a. Municipal Officers' Conference in  Victoria on June 14 and .15.  Here is the part of Mr. Bums'  report which is of interest to  the public:  A   very    interesting    panel  concerned!    the     relation     of  treasurers    and    auditors     to  each  other, and to the Coun-i,  cil. It was. held that-it w-as. the  office  of  the treasurer  to devise proper forms of accounts,  and account books to    handle  all  financial  transactions;     to  make information available to  the     Council     regarding     in?  come and, expenditure,   balances, etc.; to make recommendations  to the Council    as    to  costs and prices on both purchasers     and    material    sold, ..  and  in  all    matters    relating  to finance to act as a sort of  business manager.    To  do. all  this,   it  was  pointed but that  it was essential that the treas-  ;  urer    must    receive    prompt  and accurate information from  '.  the various departments.      In  our case, this, latter should not  be difficult,"but 1Jean remember certain past years    when :  I could not    get    information  even when I asked for it, and  what  information I    did    get  was false and misleading/The  position of the    auditor-^was  held to be judge if proper and  adequate forms of books were  being used for  the municipal  business, and to make such recommendations as he felt proper to  the treasurer;  if  satisfactory results were not forth-  dations,  then to carry his  recommendations to the council,  and if necessary to the Inspector of Municipalities, to ascertain that  such books as were"  being    used    were     correctly  kept, and    monies    accounted  for;  and    to    generally    safeguard the assets of the Corporation by     reporting    to     the  Council any errors, risks, etc.,  he may observe.  covered toy- bylaw is OK, but  such a resolution.should specify the cost��� our resolutions  seldom do.

(I am none too  clear on this latter, and intend to inquire further, as so  far I have not located the relevant section in the Act.) ���  NATIONAL INCREASE  For every 100 deaths registered in Canada in the first  quarter of this year, 318 births  were recorded.

These subjects  .were given    considerable     attention "at the Conference, and.  subsequently I had a long talk  with  Mr. Don South,  of    the  Regional Planning Division of  the Department; he  expressed  much.interest, and itNwas ten-,  tatively suggested   that if we  wished to study some amendments,  the Board - (or a committee)    study    the      Bylaws,  take note  /of    any    apparent  present    weaknesses,    perhaps  note     suggested     means       of  arnendment,:     and     then    he  Would   visit, here   at the  first  opportunity  and  go into    the  whole matter with  the Board  (Or  committee).  I was most interested, in  rhatters, relating to the new  amendments to the Act, how  to interpret them, and how  they will affect us, and on  this I returned with the least  satisfaction. As to interpretation, for the present it appears  to be necessary to consider  the Village Act, with amendments, and the Municipal Act,  and' refer back and forth.  This will probably be corrected in due course, when Mr.  Bracewell completes his work  of consolidation of both acts,  With certain other relevant  acts, and the work is implemented by legislation, and put  into one volume.  However, as things stand  now the position seems to be:  Definite:���-Commencing 1956  the Provincial Assessor will  do the Village work, and send  out assessment . notices, but  rot notices respecting water  or sewer frontage, sidewalks,  etc.  Commencing 1956, the Villages v will collect school taxes  .as levied, by.... the .provincial  government, and pay -oyer to  jih^rG^verninjent ^percent of  the levy each three.'"months.

All this came up at the  meeting of the Village men,  and I noticed that most of the  Villages viewed the whole  new proposal 'with distaste  and alarm. Perhaps for that  reason, the discussion tended  to degenerate into one as to  the merits of the legislation,  which was none of our business, as Clerks. And we failed  to learn just what we would  have to dio, s0 as to prepare  for necessary new books, etc.  Really, I don't believe either  the Dept. of Municipalities nor  Finance "are sure themselves  just what may eventuate.

The Seehelt Tree Farm is a  typical lower mainland forest,  consisting of a wide variety of  timber types and growing sites.  During the past few years,  the Tree Farm operations have  consisted of cruising, site mapping, cedar, salvage logging,  experimental pruning and., on  a small scale, harvesting of  some residual old growth  timber. ^  At the present time, a .thiri-  r   ning operation is being     carried, on under i a contract with  'the Jackson  Brothers Logging  Company! Cedar salvage operations  art being carried     out  by the Silver Skagit Shake &  Shingle Company.  /. The  Seehelt Tree Farm    is  composed of   2,561    acres    of  Grown    granted    forest    land  near   Seehelt,     approximately  30 miles from Vancouver. The  area varies in elevation    from  400 feet to 3,000   feet    above  sea level. It is five miles by  road from the sea;  '������'   About   1880 a     forest    fire  burned through the timber on  half the Tree Farm area. Many  ��� of the cedar snags and"   windfalls wh^ch   were killed     but  'not burned are    still    to    be  /found. Seed from adjacent un-  burned    trees Vrestocked    the  .area with a fine stand/of fir,  ���hemlock and cedar.      Part of  ;/the old growth forest which es-  rcaped. the fire was logged: off  /'between 1935-1945   but    some  rbf it still remains. This logged  /area has also restocked    very  "/well by natural seed fall and  now supports  a   young  forest  of from 1000 to 8000 trees to  the acre.  The Tree arm forest is made  up of several types of timber,  as follows:  Recently logged (years 1935-  1945), 1,161 acres.  Second growth fir, hemlock  and cedar, 840 acres.  Second growth Lodgepole  pine, 36 acres.  Old growth fir, hemlock and  cedar, 113 acres.  Non-productive land, 411  acres. ,       v   .  Total area, 2,561 acres.  A 40-acre tract of second  growth fir and hemlock has  been laid out as a commercial'  thinning operation. The stand,  typical of many such young  forests "in the B.C. Coast Region, is located on a superior  growing site at about 1,500 ft.  above sea level. It had its origin in a fire which swept  through an over-mature hemlock and cedar forest about  the year 1880. After the fhe  the area re-seeded from nearby trees, producing what> is  now our main stand of fir and  larger hemlock. Then more  slowly over a period of 20  years the opening filled up  with younger trees.  The present forest, 70 years  old, is made up of Douglas fir  (83 percent by volume), hemlock (15- percent) and red ce-  ^dar /(two-; percent);; \ Today's  largest trees :are; r about *��3#  inches in diameter at breast  height outside the bark, and  160 feet tall.

Some  success has been attained in  reducing such damage by placing metal shields around trees  which are subject to repeated  rubbings. It is obvious at this  time that the damage would  be reduced and much of it prevented by carrying out the  logging operations during the  fall and winter months. Dur-  . the spring and summer  months the bark is too easily  knocked off.  Since most of the residual  trees are the largest and tallest in the forest they have well  .developed root systems, and  since no large openings will  appear in the thinned forest,  it is not expected that there  will be much loss from windfall.  Our preliminary plans call  for a second thinning in ten  years (1965) and a third after  another ten years, in 1975.  During the next 20 year period we will have increased the  utilization of numbers of trees  by 33 percent by cutting and  using trees that would normally! die and rot in the forest.  The trees that remain will  still be growing rapidly andi  the quality of the growth will  be, higher because it will be  applied to few, larger stems.  The volume pf .jihe-.; ayjera/ge v  tree removed in 1975 thinning  will be 4.7 times as great as  the average tree removed in  the present thinning. It is interesting, too, that the residual  stand after the 1975 thinning  will be a superior forest in  which the average tree will  ity and shape were marked "'"contain 'approximately 1200  second. board' feet    (International Log  Larger.'trees which were '-Rule) and the stand will cbn-  oyercrowdirig other large trees. '.<��� tain a total volume of approx-  weremarked last; '///���/   < imately 40,000 board feet per  The parking technique and  ' acre of dynamic,'growing tim-  ning operation is to open up  the overcrowded forest, removing the smaller and poorer trees (and a few of , the  larger ones where necessary)  in such a manner that the best  and largest trees are left properly spaced over the area.  This technique is known as  "thinning from below," since  the smaller, overtopped! trees  are the first to be selected for  cutting. Many of these smaller  trees will die naturally within  a few years; their salvage represents one advantage of this  operation.  The remaining trees,    freed  from the   competition of    the  others  which were    crowding  them, will grow more rapidly  than normal. In a sense it may  be said that all the    growing,  power of the land will be concentrated on these    remaining  trees, greatly incerasing  their  development.  Since these  residual trees were    the    largest  and best formed in the natural stand, they have the    large  crowns and large root systems  necessary to take    immediate  advantage of  their    "release"  from  competition.  X Prior to    logging,    all    the  trees in the forest were examined arid those whieh were to  be removed were marked with  paint.  < The marker    worked -  with  the objective of removing approximately one-third of  the volume, .leaving /the residual trees evehlyf spaced on the  area",  avoiding -large    "holes"  in the remaining; stand    even  though this meant leaving "a  poor tree to fill the hole, and  marking trees to be cut in 0ie  following order of preference: ,  1. Smallest    and     poorest f  trees were marked first.  2. Larger trees of poor qual-  procedure is the key to this  type of thinning; Upon, the  marker rests the responsibility  for leaving the right trfees  properly spaced for the best  future growth and development of the forest. .' /��  her.  There is always the possibility that wind-throw, or attacks by insects or fungi can  -reduce future yields. The existence of a network or skid-  roads will make it possible to  ��    In./thisthmning operation a   salvage some of the mortality  /special" effort' lias ��� been    maide -^"losses, if they-' 'occiirT  to recover the maximum variety of products from the forest, in ah "integrated" type of  logging operation. A large  "landing" (loading area) has  been provided so that the several types of products can be  sorted and loaded separately. v  A main requirement for the  successful conduct of this type  of thinning is the utilization of  small wood. In this operation;  the timber that ^ top small  'for sawthriber has been bundled separately for pulpwood. :  Fallers    cut 'the      marked  trees as closely to the ground'  as possible. The whole tree is  utilized to a  5-inch top. Saw-'  logs are cut to an 8-inch top^  and the remainder is taken as  pulpwood.      Random    lengths5  are cut "to ensure    the    maximum    recovery    of      useable >  wood. Where possible, special-'  ty products such as hr pilings  and cedar   poles    are    rough-  made by the faller.    The  foK  lowing,  in order    of    importance, are the products  of the  thinning operation:      Sawlogs  (fir and hemlock), 78 percent;  pulpwoodi   (fir and    hemlock),  16 percent; pilings    (fir),    5.5  percent;  poles  (cedar),  .5 ' per- ���  cent;  also  cedar sawlogs,   and i  cedar    shakes     and,     shingles  from dead cedar.  There are many cedar  snags and, windfalls on the  area. Some of these yield good  quality cedar sawlogs, while  the poorer material will be  cut for shakes and shingle '  bolts after the main thinning  operation is completed.  The area, is    logged    under  contract by the Jackson Brothers Logging    Company.      The  techniques    of    yarding    and'"  loading     for    this     operation'  have been developed by    this  firm. A small tractor arid arch  are used for yarding. AH logs  (except' the  large/ cedar  logs)  are sorted and bundled at the  landing prior to loading. Saw-:i  logs, pulpwood,    pilings,    etc.-'  are all sorted by species    and  each type and species of mat-:"  erial is    bundled    separately.'  The bundles are made up in, a  crib designedr for this    operation. A 5-ton truck trailer unit  with 5 feet bunk stakes is used  to transport  the   bundles     to;  the dump.  Every effort    is    made    to '.  keep- damage to the    residual  trees to a minimum. As much  Artificial pruning is essential in young stands if clear  high grade wood is to be produced .at a reasonable age.  An experimental pruning operation has ben carried out on  14 acres of high site 70-year-  old forest adjacent to the thinning operation. Over .350 selected trees were cleaned, to a  ���; height of 60 feet above ���'-"- the  ground, by a man equipped  with high rigger's spurs and  belt and a heavy club. Green  or tough limbs were removed/  With a pruning saw. - The,, fat-..,  lowing statistics    provide    ah  approximate illustration of  the possible economic values  "of the pruning treatment: Average volume per tree pruned  in 1953, 380 board feet; average volume " 50 years hence,  1,529 board feet; total volume  growth per tree, 1,149 board  feet; volume growth of clear  wood, 747 board feet; value of  clear wood at an estimated  $30 per M.B.M. premium in  log price over standard logs,  $22.40; average cost of pruning per tree, $1.20. This represents a return of 6 percent  compound' interest over a fity  year period.  No one can say that there  will be a premium for high  grade logs in the future. We  know that, at the present time  clear logs sell at a substantial  premium in most parts of the  Coast News. July-7, 1955. 3  United States and Canada. The  premium has tended to increase  oves the years.  This pruning experiment  demonstrates that the dynamic  growing potential of thrifty,  superior fir trees can be harnessed for the production of  clear Wood at a-nominal cost.  By combining the benefits of  pruning with the increased  growth rates created by thinning, it may be possible to  produce surprising quality  yields in the future.  4.000 DESECRATERS'  Most Canadians are conscientious guardians of woods,  waters, and wildlife.

A  looper in action on a cabbage  leaf is shown irv the accompanying Garden-Graph.  The "looper" is the worm of  the gray moth which is so  common in vegetable gardens.  It not only eats cabbage leaves  but peas, beets, celery, lettuce,  tomatoes and even the foliage  of potatoes.    -������������-\-  A three 0r five percent DDT  dust is effective against "loopers" while the cabbage plants  are in the early stages of  growth. After the cabbage  heads begin to form it is best  to use rotenone dust instead of  DDT- The latter is poisonous  and the rotenone is not. In. the  small home garden it may  'prove easier to dust with rotenone both early and late. /:      .;  The "loopers" work on the  top end of the plants, but aiv-  other enemy is often busy] underground-at the. bottom, end  : of the plants.

M. LeFEUVRE  , (Secretary Howe Sound  Fair Committee)  In 1947 the Howe Sound  Farmers' Institute decided to  revive the annual fair, and on  looking back these past eight  years some pleasant memories  are uppermost.  It can be truly said that first  fair was'an outstanding one.  The. committee was smaller  than it is today and all of us  were "green" but what we  lacked we made up in enthusiasm, a willingness to lea'rfi,  and a determination to give  our best efforts t0 the - fair.  Fortunately the members of  these early fairs were placed  in niches that best suited their  natures, their inclinations and  . their  talents. ���  In the first minutes, April  14, 1947, there is recorded  "The Farmers' Institute has  on hand ear-marked for this  fair $28.90 and ways and  means of raising more cash  will be discussed at next meeting." That, was the princely  sum on which the first fair  commenced activities, and  many times thereafter there  could be heard the warning refrain  ''Watch  the money."/  We made mistakes and  were criticised sometimes, but  the praise and appreciation  that came our way, far offset  the petty.-criticism.  In the fruits and vegetables  Mr_ E. G, Clark was the judge  in the early years and his helpful advice made for easy observation of the kings and  queens in these two divisions::  "Just why, Mr. Clark,  should these fine beets lose  points?"    was ^responded    to  with  "Half inch short in  diameter."  He would say "That corn  over there is pale for Golden  Bantam but is very well formed from butt to tip, another  week would have given the  necessary coloring; it gets due  credit. "The, smaller pumpkin  received first prize because of  its fine quality,"  "These peas ��� big pods and  small peas -��� have had loo  much nitrogen as fertilizer  and these cabbages could have  done with more.'" No ��� wonder  there was a glint cf pleasure  in his eyes as he fooussed on,  the potatoes. Then, as m most  of our subsequent fuJrs, the  humbl? "Murphies" could  hold   their   own   anywhere.  Of course, at convenient  times the necessary knowledge  was passed on to the respective exhibitors.  It was surprising in these  days the number of growers  who 'offered a baker's dozen  in peas and beans when classifications called for twelve  pods. t  ��� For the clerks who have the  privilege and pleasure of tagging along with the judges  there is sometimes wisdom in  silence. Also an observing eye  and.-an open ear are valuable  assets.      ���  (To be continued)  Su  mmer opera  A full scale production    of  arj opera will be given for the  first time at the University of/  British Columbia   on    August/  29? 30 arid 31 as a conclusion  to the Summer School of   the  Opera held at UBC from July  4 to August 24.

WHAT'S COOKING?  1,456,000 of the estimated  3,734,000 households in Canada last September cooked on  electric stoves, while 1,243,000  used wood or ccal cookstoves  or ranges, 798,000 used gas  stoves, 196,000 used kerosene,  or oil stoves and 23,000 used  hot plates'or sawdust burners.

AMATEUR   BABY-SITTER  A few,months ago a lady in  Saskatchewan, asked me if I  would repeat a story I wrote  several years ago. The lady  wrote in such gracious terms"  that I am glad to grant her  wish;  so here is the story.  The grandpa we are thinking of just now is good-natured, and we like him, but he  isn 't much good as a babysitter. Mr. W. F. Fish, J.P., is  a distinguished South African,  and was once mayor of Capetown. He -was born in London,  England, but went to South  Africa  when in his   teens.  The    Autobiography    of    a  Counter-Jumper tells the story  of his  interesting life.     When  living in  Capetown,  Mr.  Fish  had  a visit from his  married  daughter and-her baby,    wh'o  were living in the Transvaal.  >v His     wife     and     "daughter  thought they would like to go  cut for  the evening,   so    Mr.  Fish gallantly offered to  look  after the baby. "Thanks, Dad"  said his daughter, "it is awfully good of you, but you won *t  have any trouble.      Baby    is  such a sweet darling and seldom wakes up. If he does, just  dip the  rubber dummy in    a  Xttle.    sugar,    and    he'll    be  right off to sleep  before you  know it." "Everything will be  all right," said grandpa, " we  jghall have a nice quiet evening    and     don't    you    hurry  home; take your time."  iii .v  /Comfort and convenience go  together in the folding steel  chairs I saw last week. The  samples* were rockers (without the long end protruding to  catch the ankles) but I'm told  , they may be had: as straight  chairs, too. The frames are of  white enamelled steel tubing,  the seat and back of Saran, the  material used in auto seat cov-  / ers...  They  come in    cheerful  ^plaids: - One motion folds the  chair to a  thickness of about  . 2 1/2 inches or unfolds it.  Mighty reasonable in price,  too.  Dark sheer dresses are fine  for summer, but they" do re-  .quire dark slips. They are  available on the Peninsula, too  in taffeta or nylon. Those I  saw were made by one of the  better known \ makers of lingerie, and smart.  .-i There are smart dresses for  $he tiny girl, of various summery materials,- made with  matching panties or didie covers. Small fry look trim at all  times.  ��� �� ��� ..       . ��� ��� ���  ,0 Was interested in the self  bailer that works simply from  the propellor. stream. Nothing  moves but the water, and the  hose is a good size, and . will  not. become clogged with  matches or other small debris  in the boat. It is transparent  plastic, so that should it suck  up something too large, it  would immediately be. visible.  The exhaust end of the. bailing hose is located immediately aft of the propellor, and  the suction operates the bailer.  4,Goes on and off easily, and  works equally well with inboard or outboard motors.  He got his slippers, some  papers and a favorite book,  and settled down for three or  four hours of quiet pleasure.  Tnere was a tiny squeak.  'That must be a motorist  with a new kind of horn," he  thought. Then there was another squeak ��� louder and  longer and Grandpa realized  that the baby had spoiled his  record���he had not gone off  to sleep. Soon he was screeching like a foghorn. He yelled  tili he was blue in the face'  Then he remembered about  the dummy and the sugar. He  slipped into the pantry, got a  saucer full and returned triumphantly. Dipping the dummy into the saucer he placed  it well into the baby's mouth.  The baby sucked it for a moment, then spat it out and  yelled louder than ever.  Grandpa took the baby up  and tried to sing it to sleep,  but it didn't work. His mother had said the baby was an  angel but Grandpa, thought it  was a. very noisy angel. "We'll  try the sugar again," he said  to himself. So, more dips and  more sugar and ��� more yells  than ever. Grandpa had never  heard such piercing and penetrating screams. He thought  maybe a pin was hurting the .  baby so he undid its clothing,  and once having got them off,  he couldn't get them on again.  After half an hour baby was  still naked and Grandpa bewildered and alarmed.  He got some clothes on, or  rather wrapped them around  the baby, but nothing made  any difference. The only-time  he stopped screaming was  when he stopped! for breath.  Strange to say nothing made  him worse than the dummy  dipped^ in the saucer. Grandpa tried singing "There's a  friend for little children."  His voice was.drowned by the  yelling.  At last ��� it seemed * like  ages ��� the family returned.  "How is my little lamb?" asked his daughter. "He has nev-  Coast News. July 7, 1955. XI  er stopped screaming for  three hours," replied Grandpa. "I did everything I could  think of; hymns, songs and  anthems; milk, bread, butter,  cheese and sardines." Did  jou give him the dummy? she  asked. "I certainly did, and  that seemed to make him madder   than  anything  else."  She hurried upstairs and  soon returned with the baby  in her arms. "My poor little  son," she sobbed, "n0 wonder  you cried." Then to her father she said, "Who told jou to  dip the dummy in salt? You're  inhuman, Grandpa." He had  mistaken salt for sugar and  the baby's mouth was sore  and blistered.  "I have never forgotten  that evening," writes Mr.  Fish. He made it up with.his  daughter and grandson, but  he knows now that a man may  be Lord Mayor of a great city  but still  a  poor baby-sitter.

Canada Year Book  available at  Bearing an artist's representation in color of the Canada  goose on its cover and with  a number oi innovations in  its text and design, Canada  1955���the popular annual "Official , Handbook of Present  Conditions and. Recent Progress" has been released for  distribution by .the Dominion  Bureau of Statistics and' the  Queen's Printer.  Canada: 1955 is the 26th in  the handbook series, which  was instituted iii. i930 to supplement the field of the Canada Year Book. It is concise,  fully illustrated . reference on  Canada and Canadian conditions, especially designed for  easy carrying and use by businessmen, teachers, and students and. to appeal to the  general public both in Canada  and   abroad. f  As a "baby brother" of the  Canada Year Book, the handbook draws from much the  sa.me sources for its facts. The  several statistical divisions of  the Dominion Bureau of Statistics are a prime supplier of  its information, while various  departments of governments  and authoritative non - governmental sources supplement the  basic data. Its illustrations  are drawn from a wide range  of governmental, commercial,  press  and private sources.  Among changes in the current edition is a rearrangement of text into four main,  related sections^ namely, The  Country; and Its Government,  The People, their Development and Welfare, Tl>e Economy and The Operation of the  Economy. Each section is introduced by a symbolic interpretation facing a color photograph appropriate t0~the subject matter in the section.  Its more than 300 pages carry an average of a picture per  page ��� a number in color.  The pictures convey a visual  panorama of Canadian life and  the captions contain information additional to that in    the  awa  text. Among the color photographs is, a special four-page  insert presenting selected reproductions of murals of. national and provincial park  scenery from Nova Scotia to  British Columbia.  In former years the covers  of the Canada Handbook ser-.  ies have portrayed a map of  Canada in "a varietji 5f sizes  and colors. The portrayal this  year of the famed Canada  goose���shown in- four colors  on. grey cover stock���makes a  distinct departure in cover  treatment.  Copies of Canada 1955 are  obtainable from the Queen's  Printer. Ottawa, at 75 cents a  copy. Orders should, be accompanied by remittance payable  at nar to the Receiver General  of Canada.  ACCIDENT TOLL  There were fewer fatal and  injury accidents in . Canada  (Quebec excluded) last year  than in 1953 ,and fewer persons were killed or injured.  However, the number of fatalities per 100 fatal accidents  increased to 116 from 113 and  the number injured per 100  non-fatal injury accidents rose  t0  144 from 140.

BY   CHUCK  TOMPKINS  The big upset last week is  history now when the underrated Seehelt nine edged out  second place Port Mellon 8 to  7. .-     .'I  Seehelt is coming along and  if the team can stick eogether  next season it will be a real  threat to the league. Vai-August and Mike Whitaker look to  me to be the best prospects in  the younger players and with  some more experience and  good, coaching should turn ii>  to fine  ball  players.      '.Ar  The Wilson Creek - Merchants game, scheduled for  Tuesday was rained out and  the Merchants-Sechelt game'on  Sunday was postponed to a  later date.  Port Mellon cut the Fire-  men'.s lead to two games as  they walloped the bqys in red  lOr-1 on Sunday. It looks as if  it will be a battle right down  to the wire between these two  teams t0 see which will represent the Peninsula in the B.C.  playoffs, but Wilson Creek or  Pender could be the dark  horse as there is still practically a month before the representative is chosen. The/team to  go to the playoffs is the team  that is top of the league percentagewise on August  1.  About two weeks from now  a ballot will appear in s The  Coast News on which you, the  fans, will vote for fthe most  popular player in the league.  This award, which will be in  the form of a sports jacket for  the player chosen, is being  donated.by Vince Prewar of  Marine Men's Wear in Gibsons. Mr. Prewar wishes it to  be clear in the fans' minds  that .this award is nor for the  best player in the league, but  for the player who you personally like to see play because  of his conduct on the field, the  color he adds to the game,  sportsmanship and many other  little things that make watching him perform enjoyable. for  you.  Afer talking to a number o-''  players I think that the majority of them would like to Tsee  all the awards made at a banquet this year and a bit of a  professional touch added.  There is a lot of talk (and  that is all) about a new community park for Gibsons containing along with ball fields,  the fair buildings, etc.  Being primarily interested  in the chance of a new ball  field I think it is about time  that Gibsons as a community  got together and did something about this.  Smaller places like Wilson  Creek and Pender Habour  have really worked and have  good parks on the way while  we in Gibsons do nothing but  talk.  The Little Leaguers as well  as the Seniors have to play on  fields that are only? fit for the  grazing of Carpathian mountain goats. Can you imagine  what would happen if the superintendent of Little League  should pay us a visit? And he  will, believe me. So call a  meeting, please, Mr. Sutherland. -  To the league executive: If  you are interested, this writer  would supervise a ballot J vote,  among the fans for an "All-  Star" team; the cost to you,  sirs, would be practically nil.  Sunday the Firemen go to  Pender Harbour; "I Predict"  say Pender to win.  Pender! Harbour  h83# di  ies  Mrs. Gertrude E. Mitchell,  83, died recently at Pender  Harbour.
