In the meantime the commission decided  to pay the $50 already allocated for incinerator work and  held back the $135 account  until Mr. Rhodes explained  what he proposed to do in future as regards garbage collection.  A letter from Woodward's  Store, Vancouver, in reply to  one from the commission, said  that drivers on store trucks  ���didn't solicit business but if.,  any person had an order ready  for mailing they would take  it and deliver it to the store.  The letter written by the commission arose as the result of  fire department equipment  $32.16 for general expenses.  The Commission decided  that future expenditures for  reports truck drivers were taking orders.  A copy of a Lieutenant-Gov  ernor's minute covering Salmon Rock was read. It-stated  that under Section 94 of the  Land Act, Chapter 175 Revised Statutes,. 1948, Home Island (Salmon Rock) is reserved for recreation and the enjoyment of the public. The  minute was dated July 5, 1955,  and a copy was 'ordered sent  t0 the Village Clerk' at Gibsons. ^  Accounts totalling $1,269.02  were ordered paid. Of this  amount $920.58 goes to road,  work, $73.33 for fire and wa-v  ter, $242.95 for the Workmen's  Compensation Board and  and repairs should be done  by requisition signed by the  fire chief.

That is the sum total of the  "Battle" Monday night on the  Elementary School grounds  when Chop's Mops gave Kiwanis "Pros" a good run for  their money in a 28 to 26 ball  gamev  -It was worthwhile game  throughout and close to 300  persons sat on the sidelines or  in their cars outside the highway fence and watched the  gals and lads-. It _ was a perfect  evening for ball and the  crowd enjoyed all it heard and  saw.  There is a report going the  rounds, which the Coast News  is not able to pin down, that  Chops' Mops want to protest  the game because the "Pros"  had some imports on their  line-up. So far Chops' Mops  have not been able to find any  official. -or organization to  which they can protest.

Eachxtime though the  girls emerged smiling and  kept the "pros" busy chasing  balls in the fields. Whenever  the girls got the infield flustered they made base after  base with the- greatest of ease.  It was the heavy hitting of the  "pros" hat saved them from a  licking that would have gone  down in Gibsons baseball history as one of the debacles of  the year.

The umpiring was fair in  spite of heckling from the side  lines and the disturbing influence of the men on the "pro"  team who protested everything.

The following letter received by The Coast News is  published without comment. The letter speaks for itself.  It is published for the benefit of all who might be concerned, with the good name of Gibsons.  Here is the letter: ���'������_.   , / : . *��� ������  Editor:  On Tuesday, July 5th, my. neighbor took my boat to  do some fishing around Salmon Rock. "YVheri suppertime  came they pulled into Gibsons, tied, up to the government  wharf, and went to have supper in the cafe just off the  pier. When they returned in less than an hour the two  anchors and anchor cables were missing from the boat and  they spent some time trying to yfind a law enforcement  officer but to no avail.  The reason I am bringing this to your attention is  because I. beiieve that you, as the editor of the local paper,  can do a lot to make sure that fellow sports fishermen will  not receive the same treatment as I have just mentioned at  your fair town. >  It is our belief that the theft was made by someone  either directly or indirectly connected with a fish boat tied  up a/t the same dock. Gibsons is a very important place to  small boat owners in i/'iat a marine gas station is located  there. Perhaps this is not the first time that such an incident has taken, place but regardless of whether it is the  first.-time or an everyday occurrence, I think that you and  yaur.paper can do a lot.to help eradicate it.-As an example,  you can fight for better police protection of that wharf or  ydu can write editorials directed, at the honest fishermen  to encourage them'to have-ho truck or trade with pirates.;  ' Mind you, the loss of two anchors is not'a big thing;'  bii.t I* am sure that if everything else on the boat ��had not  either been nailed down, screwed down; or locked down, it:  would have been ^stripped clean. Incidents such as this can  do"a lot towards giving Gibsons a bad name as far as  pleasure crafts are concerned.  Trusting  thai:  you   will  be   able  to   do 'something  .through your paper to help clean up this situation, I remain,  "/  '   - R.A.K.  ^efsgettdg  : The Coast News lias supported the organization of.  a.

Coast News waited with expectancy for an announcement of the first meeting, the meeting at which  regular officials would be appointed.  The meeting was held and the Coast News was NOT  informed so therefore was NOT at the meeting.-   .   .  ; If this is the type of co-operation the Coast'News is  to expect from Gibsons merchants the sooner there is a  change the better it will be for Gibsons.  Once again may,we state: The Coast News is ready  t;d support all and any organization desiring -to improve  conditions in Gibsons ��� BUT The Coast News has definitely NO INTENTION OF READING MINDS. The Coast  News will appreciate being informed, of the dates and  times of meetings.  LETTERS to EDITOR  Editor: Apropros to our current times and conditions, I  have been given by a good  friend (who knows my trend  of thinking) the following extract from a book by Herman.  Spencer entitled Data of Ethics, date  1879:  "The man who, expending  his energies ��� wholly on private  affairs, pluming himself on  his wisdom in minding his  own business, is blind to the  fact that, his own business is  made possible only by the  maintenance of a healthy social state, and that he loses all  round by; defective governmental arrangements.  "Where there are many like  minded with himself; where,  as a consequence, offices come  to be filled by political adventurers and opinion is v swayed  by demagogues ��� where bribery vitiates the admini'stra-  tion of/the law and - makes-  fraudulent state , transactions  habitual, heavy penalties fall  on the community at .large,  and among others, on those  who have done everything for  self, and nothing for society.  Their investments are insecure; recovey of their debts  is difficult, and even their  lives are less safe than they  would otherwise have been."  Nothing I;could add to this  quotation would express any  hetter my own feelings of disapproval and dissatisfaction  with the "local Joes" whether  young or old, who are so  prone t0 "let George do it,"������  who will hang back in the col  lar until someone else takes  hold and does the job, then  will criticise their efforts. It  is my hope that in the near future we may see more of the  younger people taking an increasing and active interest  in all forms of government,  local and farther afield.  A. E. Ritchey.  Editor: On behalf of the  Canadian Red Cross Society,  I would like to express to you  and your staff our sincere appreciation of your assistance  during the 1955 annual Red  Cross appeal.  Campaign returns are not  yet complete but there is every indication that the national objective will be reached.  Your co-operaion and interest in the Canadian Red "Gross  Society has been a major factor in the -success of our appeals and I would like you to  know that we are most, grateful- for ypiir support both v at  campaign time and throughout  the year. ���������    "  At the' annual  'meeting   of  the society held    last,  months  the ��� following resolution    was  passed     unanimously;       "The .  Central Council of the Cahad-.  iah Red/Cross ���Societir eip'r&s-^  es its gratitude to'the national'!  press services* ddily and week-"��  lyj publications and imagazinep,.  for their generous proyision. of  news space and helpful editorials in promdting the work of  the Red Cross." "'  H. H. Rimmer, ��  Chairman,    National    Campaign Publicity Committee.  The Hon. Ray G. Williston,  minister of education, announced recently that a four-man  team of officials from the department of education has  been visiting key centres  throughout the province to��ex-  plain to school boards the intent and operation of the system of approved costs as laid  down in the new educational  finance formula passed at the  last session of the legislature.  ' The prime purpose of the  conferences was to plan with  the local school authorities a  method of obtaining the greatest return from each tax dollar spent on education.  It was explained to school  boards that the formula for the  financing of education in British Columbia was built on the  following   principles:  ���1. That a basic or foundational program of instruction  be provided for all Grade I to  XII public school students . in  the-province.  2. That - the government  grants for the financing of  this foundational program be  equitably * distributed to all  school districts in direct relation to their taxable resources  and their ability to pay.  3. That all discretionary  expenditures made by school  boards beyond the foundational program be the financial  responsibility of the school  board as representatives of the  local taxpayers.  In order to ensure an equitable distribution of . government grants, certain factors  governing shareable expenditures are gradually being introduced. ��� v  In.the case of teachers' salaries an approved schedule    for  grant-sharing .purposes  is now.  in effect. ���  A manual of. building standards to govern the construction of schools has been approved in order to provide the  housing required to operate  the basic educational program.  Provincial grants for school  buildings will be based on the  accommodation outlined in the  manual. :���.  Under"'the" terms of the new  formula, the shareable costs  for/the conveyance of school  children will be governed by  approved -schedules of rates  based on a study of present-  day costs in the various zones  of the province.  Because   the    transportation  policy of the  department    depends to a great extent    upon  the school building policy, the >  department  wishes  to  encourage the building of   necessary  elementary  schools  in the. local   communities  s0  that    the  Grade I-VI pupils may be ed- '  ucated in  their home  centres.  . For    this    reason,      wherever  transportation  is involved,, every new school    plan    calling  for an addition to an existing  elementary     -school     building  will be examined with a view  to  the> possible   reduction     of  any    unnecessary     transportation costs caused by over-centralization. .  The public schools act makes  provision for the establishment of kindergarten classes  at the discretion of the school  boards, but, at the present  time, because of the shortage  of teachers and the limited  available funds for building  of new classrooms, the department is advising school boards  against establishing kindergarten classes.  From this general summary  of policy trends it will be observed that .the department of  education is moving ��� steadily  in the'direction vof defining  reasonable limits of expendi-  ���ture to which the province  will contribute its share of the  - basic, educational program.. .  Under < this system the basic  program is guaranteed to all  districts iat a:; reascaiahle^milK  ratey VWheneyefc a'/ school-board  desires enrichment of the bas  ic pr0gram< the expenditures  , involved h, must be the sole 'responsibility of the local taxpayers^- Only by .'this method'.  cani.the allocation of provincial, funds be made to"-' all districts on an equitable ;basis.  ^ BY L.S.J.  At the tree farm exposition  it''-was most unusual to have  two of the top-ranking lumbermen of the coast bring back  the memory of the area of the  tree farm as it was 50 years  ago. At that time they were  travelling up the Gulf and the  area in question can be readily  seen from the water, and they  remarked ^on. the calamity  that had befallen by reason of  a <fire that had recently gone  through the timber. .All that  was left were gaunt black  snags and fern flats. This was  1^06.  This burn was the haunt of  the blue grouse and a good  deer country and one fall we  crept out in the early dawn  froni an old-shack where we  had spent the night and were  scared stiff by the roar of an*  enormous flock of Canada  geese that had roosted among  the bracken for the night. /I  remember it so well because I  fired a few shots into the mass  ���arid winged one and we lost  half an hour running it to  earth amid the ferns and tburnt  debris. -  sThis episode will give a  general idea of* the. nature of  the ground at that time after  two fires had run over it as  the speaker named the date  for one fire as 1880; the other  was 1906. I labor this point,  somewhat t0 show the. tremendous, recuperative ability of  the- forests in this area. Here  were three men watching a  logging operation on timber ;  that had only come into being  in'living memory.  "There are many such stands  hi*;'the coastal belt that have  either been burnt over or logged and the development in  the usage of new growth' will  balance somewhat the economic difficulties of liquidating  the old.  This outfit pioneerng in this  manner at considerable, and  unprofitable expense may convince the forestrj" ^powers that  be, that the time is here or at  least fast approaching when  serious attention will have to  be/given to' this prcbleim*; The-  present slaughter on the private lands can only be likened:  to ihe preparation for a Roman holiday with the spoils being divided as follows: First,  the liquor store; machinery  and car men second, and the  bank and the grocery man a  very poor last.  I am convinced we are trading our birthright for a most  revolting mess of pottage.  I cut my logging teeth as a  mountain goat on a show    in  Call Creek and I snicker when  , the  present   long haired  denizens of the    forest    in    these  parts, talk as    if    the    rough  shows  are a modern  development.  This anecdote   starts  at  an employment office on "Car-  rail , Street behind the Bodega  Bar where Peg Leg or    something  or other    wrote    on    a  blackboard hanging outside    a  list of- jobs    for    the    woods.  These joints were the forerunners  of the Personnel  departments of. tQday. &     ���       .  If you asked about a job  you would be asked ' where  you had worked last and how  long you had stayed.

LeFEUVRE  J      (Secretary Howe Sound  Fair    Committee)  In the Needlework Section  judges have been, on the  whole, quite complimentary in  their remarks on the excellent  workmanship of the articles  exhibited.  It should be noted that in  later years attention has mov-  ��� ed across Canada to ideas that  show up less intricate stitch-  ery and on foundation material less costly. For instance,  the outstanding prize awarded  on a table runner of good quality cotton on which was stamped some water lillies embroidered! in medium shade of blue  in simple needlework was  judged more valuable than  more elabbate items. It would  be encouaging, to have more  entries from the talent in the  district along the lines of this  Section.  AH through the years there  have been some attractive entries in. the Home Cooking and  Preserving Sections but it is  not often- one comes across an  experienced judge "stumped."  That happened in one of the  past fairs on two lemon pies.  :.These, were beauties, and after  .consultation,; the judge was  authorized to award two first  ' prizes;'.-'  ;. Something similar happened  at.the same fair on a jar of  preserved-: chicken and a jar  -of preserved salmon for the  .outstanding prize. After carefully summing up the points*  on each item the fis)v was the  gainer by .two points.   .  .Last year's showing of  .yeast baking under Standard  Brands Classifications contained ; some very fine entries.  : Many lovelyi articles liave  bejen , .displayed in the Parish  hall when ' demonstrations of  weaving and spinning    helped  t0 create and hold , old-time  quaintness. In one particular  year, while noting details,  only a small black kettle was  lacking to make up and complete a very pretty picture of '  bygone days.  There is outstanding remembrance of a more recent fair���  of the small table with the  display of peanuts and the  clear cut card "Eat them and  wear them." Samples of the  material produced and manufactured from the kernels of  peanuts were also shown.  Through curiosity and appeal  a fascinating storyi resulted.  Perhaps we had good reason  for holding our heads higher  during the balance of that  year, for that was a unique  contribution to a small Fair.  In musing through the Junior Divisions, especially the  School section, interesting  subjects have been brought to  the mind, but to do full justice  to both the Elementary and  High School students one  would require much more  time than is available.  If one wishes to see joy registered with few words watch  the Juniors as they uncover  their exhibits of baking, fruits  and vegetables, and in the  Poultry section when their  birds are displayed. Each  year fleeting moments of  pleasure are experienced by  exhibitors and receivers, as the  boyp and girls show with  pride what they have done.  Hats off to all the Juniors for  their efforts.'  In the Flower Section much  credit goes to the Gibsons  Garden Club and to MrJ Dick  Reeves for the beautiful displays of flowers each year,  and each'year it has been  pleasing to note that displays  and entries have increased.  Mr. A. H. Peppar of Anmore  has had pleasure -in judging,  and   his    delightful    explana  tions to anyone wishing-pointers has made this section' of  the fair noteworthy. ^;  In the plans for the annual  fair, from beginning to ...end,  there has been full scope for  the revealment of the niceties  of thought and language; and  frankness, loyalty and cb-oper-  ation have played a strong  part in the Howe Sound; Fair  committee. Long may these  vibrant key-notes be bulwark  for future fairs. .  Come To The Fair.

When we accept the fact of the  matter, we can devote ourselves to the task of making  the power structure work  more effectively for the good  of the community."  "The committee is a natural  phenomenon of our democratic  society," Prof. Baker continued, "but it is important to  consider who is on the committee." -'  People may be equal in  some ways, he said., but not in  terms of the influence they exert in the community. The  man of importance is the man  whose ideas will' be taken*  seriously.  A    COMEDIAN'S  A" few weeks ago, on a ' radio  program,     a    well-known  comedian   brought  his  performance to a close with a short  :   speech  which     was     unusual,  but I thought was    in     good  taste.  He  said:   "I  hope    you  have   enjoyed this    effort    of  mine; I try to do my best and  bring some happiness into the  lives of those who watch this  show. If I can do this I shall  feel that   I  am  serving     God  in a humble way."  He said it very humbly  but sincerely, and I found it  very impressive, all the more  .so because it was so unexpected, but ' why should it  cause surprise? The gocd  Lord has given us a sense of  humour ��� Ivhope ��� when it  is clean,, wholesome and especially if it gives people a'  lift I think that the performer  is entitled to feel he has  earned  God's  approval.  It is well-known that Martin Luther, usually cheerful,  did occasionally fall into  moods of depression and on  one such occasion his wife rebuked him by asking: /"Martin, is God dead?" He graciously accepted the rebuke  for he knew that "A merry  heart doeth good like a medicine." For merriment, as  George Morrison, said, is not a  shallow or superficial thing; it  has its roots down In the soul;  it runs' down to self-forgetfillness.  .. '* ���      * * ��� ���  The words humour and human,have the same root, and  I find it hard Ho believe that  anyone  with  a   seiv;e    of   hu-  PRAYER mour could be cruel. I am  not thinking of smart wit,  which can be-sarcastic, but the  kind of good natured humour  which bubbles over in the novels of Charles Dickens, and in,  works of many other writers.  *      *      *  There is an old story which  carries down to us from the  middle ages, about a group of  men who were relating what  they, had been able to do for  ~'Go(f by their various gifts.  One was an acrobat who at  first was depressed until he"  was made, to, feel he might  honor God by .performing an  acrobatic feat and that knowledge made him very happy.  I^remember,. when I was a  little lad, living in the north  of England, we had a minister  whose sense of kindlyi humour  was irrepressible. He could  not keep it out of his sermons,  and--it endeared him greatly  to the people' of- our town.  When he spoke at Sunday  School ��� which he frequently did ��� the youngsters loved  it. ITbelieve men of his. type'  are a constant recommendation for religion.  Oliver Wendell Holmes had  an idea when he was young  that he would like to become  a' clergyman, but he said so  many ministers he knew looked like undertakers that he  decided against it. That is rather hard on undertakers, who  as a'class are very human, also a little tough on ministers  who;iare invariably cheerf  As I get older I feel we are  veryr narrow when talking  about serving God. We restrict  it to singing hymns, prayers,  sermons   and  such     exercises  spiring the plowman in his  lowly task: "Doth the plowman plow all day to sow?  Doth he open and break the  clods of ground? ... For his  God doth instruct him to discretion, and doth teach him."  God then, inspires the plowman not only when he is in  the synagogue in exalted worship, but,also when he is lab-  bring in the field, turning over  the brown sods.  *      *'-���*.      (  In commenting on this verse  the late W. L. Watkinson said  "We accept the inspiration of  the philosopher. That Copernicus by a kind of supernatural  flash perceived, the celestial  order, and that Newton by a  similar intuition discerned the  master law in the falling apple, most are willing to allow.  be reminded of that line, by  Robert Browning.

Many persons do not realize  that "they are  three,  very  different   fruit   combinations."'  Fruit ; Cocktails  These contain small pieces  of harmonizing but different  fruits, preferably fresh or half  thawed frozen fruit, with 1/3  the amount of fruit juice. Often this is white grape juice,  orange juice, - ginger ale or  grenadine.  Canaad :fruit is sometimes  used in which case there is  added a little fresh or frozen  lemon or lime juice to cut the  aweetnes^ and step up the flavor.  Fruit cocktails should be  frosty cold. Because they are  used as appetizers, they should  never be sweet. Fruit cocktails  are often miscalled fruit salads. This is because of incorrect labelling on the part of  some canned fruit processors.  Fruit Salads  A fruit salad is entirely different from a fruit cocktail. It'  is a real salad, arranged, on  crisp lettuce, and if not made  entirely , of", fresh fruit, it  should contain comparatively  little canned fruit, ,is it is usu  ally too sweet lor'salad    ser-    cuit dough as usual.

CAMPBELL  SECHELT 83 W 8 Coast News July 14, 1955.  Wilson Creek  BY MRS.  D.  ERICKSON  A magnificent sight was  seen here last week when  against the background of a  lovely] sunset a Davis Raft  and two large booms passed  in tow close to the shore.  Bringing up the rear of this  imposing procession was a  small beach combing craft.  Passing motorists from California were very much Impressed by this  sight.  Mr. and Mrs. Basil Nicholson with their children, Nora,  Dennis and Myra have returned to Walnut Grove, California after a pleasant holiday with Mrs. M* McGiiinness  here. Former residents of Selma Park, .the Nicholsons always look forward to their  visits.    .  The 'Al *Mee family of West-  view formerly of Davis Bay,  and Seehelt paid a visit to old  friends here during a holiday  at Sea Beach Motel. Miss Donna Lemieux returned borne  with them for a visit.  Also down from Westview  were Mr. and. Mrs. B. Lemieux Sr. visiting with friends  and relatives. '  Very busy improving and  adding t0 their summer home  here are the H. Rivetts. They  find a holiday can be, more  work  than  staying  at  home.  Mrs. Gordon Simpson and  children from Stave Falls  have joined their Dad for the  summer holidays in the cottage next to the Madeira Post.  Mr. and Mrs. Bill Dickie  are staying in the Reid Beach  cottage for part of July.  Mrs. Evelyn Lucken left to  drive to the Calgary Stampede  with Mrs. May Stern of Vancouver. They will visit old  school friends during their  stay.  Visiting Margaret and Bill  Drew are Mr, arid Mrs. J. Kelly. They enjoyed their first  Visit here including the view  of Trail Islands from West  Seehelt.  JOHN J. DUNKIN  Doctor of Optometry  906   Birks  Building  VANCOUVER, B.C.  fiE^:7:"??^^fc��*i~.

Punky was injured  while he and a pal were play-:  ing on the highway near his  home.  According to Cpl. Cummins  of the RCMP, the boy, with  another, was playing along the  road. The boys had a rope attached to the waist of each,  and when a car approached,  the boys separated, leaving  the rope across the road, but  lying on the surface. The car  came to a stop, and the boys  stood still.  As the car proceeded slowly across the rope, one of the  boys evidently backed up,  raising the rope which was  caught ' under the running  gear.  The boy was jerked forward, sustaining some slight  head injuries and bruises. He  could have been killed.  Mrs. C. Harper is home  again, after teaching school on  Nelson Island for the past  year.  Two new families have taken up residence here in Kleindale. They are: Mr. and. Mrs.  Bremer and family, new owners of the former Lyons Oyster Co., and Mr. and Mrs.  Dediluke and family.  Mr. and Mrs. Art Joss and  family have returned from  Vancouver where they were  guests at the wedding of Mrs.  Joss' sister. Little Norma .was  flower girl.  Visiting the Josses now are  Sandy Keriip and Valerie and  Arlene Sands.  Alma and Harold Sanford  are sporting a new speedboat.  Pop Sundqulst suggested the  name "Vega Jr." which the  Sanfords readily accepted.  The meeting of the Highway Community Club held July 5 was a success for the teen  agers. They were represented  by three of their members.  This action was to decide upon  the Teen Tbwners' use of the  Community Hall for their  club functions. Permission was  obtained. A meeting of |he  Teen Towners will be heldola-  ter on this month.  Its plain to see    that    the  summer  vacations have  started, by the amount of    traffic  seen on the highway. For the  larger part, tourists wh0 have  not been here before or those  who   haven't  been  here  since  the     new ��� highway      was  built  between Kleindale    and  Earl's Cove,  get mixed up on  "Signpost  Corner,"    the  junction of the two roads. Tourists  going  to   Pender  find    themselves on the ferry to Powell  River  and  vice  versa.    Many  a   puzzled driver has  stopped  to   ask  directions.    There  are  plenty;   of  signs,    but  usually  they are  in  too much    of    a  hurry  to get to their  destination and fail    to    read    these  signs    correctly,     and    sometimes fail to    read    them    at '  all.  BY  CHUCK  TOMPKINS  Firemen and    Port    Mellon  are still running neck and  neck with the Firemen holding a ione game lead 'at -the  present- time. It looks to me  as if it could be either one of  them representing the Peninsula in the B.C. play-offs.  The Firemen edged Pender  3-1 on Sunday and downed  Wilson Creek 11-6 on Wdu��n&s\  day. As I.understand it, 7Sj|iI-  son Creek is prepared to protest the game becavjse of./7&n  umpire's interpretation of;,. a  ground rule. The decision will  be up to the league executive.  The Merchants lost, two  more games last 4week, Tthe  first to Port Mellon 8-6 x6n  Tuesday and on Sunday Wilson  Creek beat them 8-5.

The Merchants playing with  only nine men, after an early  injury to Pete Slinn, gave Wilson Creek all the fight they,  were looking for as W.C. used  three pitchers while Chops  McGean went the route for  the  Merchants.  Port Mellon squeezed out a  4 to 3 win over Seehelt Sunday night to keep on the Firemen's tail with Ernie Hume  coming in in the eighth to preserve the win for starter Bert  Kruse.  Little League is all over and  was a successful year as .far  as the youngsters were concerned as they gave their best  at all times and played^ some  pretty fair-ball for the first  season. The big let down was  in you,  the fans.  Little League belongs to the  community and as in any other community effort it must  be supported. I would not like  to predict that the Little  League won't be around riext  year as I am one of the strong  supporters, but it is something  for the rest of the fans to  think about.  The big talk among players  and a few of the fans seems to  be in favor of senior baseball  next season. With this I heartily agree, not just because I  think it is- a better game but  because with the possibility of  a Babe Ruth League along  with the Little League next  season it will provide a place'  for the youngsters to play as  Gib  sons  N  ews  rsBity,.}.,  N  Z3   mrerr  SPECIALS  Hamburgers Deluxe  CHIPS   "���:> ,������....

It doesn't, make sense to me  to have kids start playirig Little League from nine to 12,  Babe Ruth League from 13 to  ,16 and then start playing soft-  ball after they have .had five  or six years 0f baseball experience.  ���  The only difficult part . of  the change over for the seniors would be in the pitching  department, but there is lots  of pitching talent around if it  is developed.  There is not any use of  bringing up the subject of  small fields as these can be  remedied with a little -work  and the constructiori of fences  and sensible ground  rules.' ;  Anyway it's worth thinking  over. .
