FAREWELL TEA ���*  The WA of the United  Church entertained several ladies last week at the home of  Rev. and Mrs. R. R. Morrison  with a farewell tea for Mrs.  G.' Cormack who has sold her  home to Rev. and Mrs. J. Bev-  an of Gibsons. Mr. H. M. Levey, former city clerk of Kam-  loops. has been visiting Rev.  and' Mrs. R. R.    Morrison  An informal discussion on  road traffic drew ^comments  from the commissioners that  there should be some check-up  On young drivers who are  speeding through the village  at .-/unnecessary speeds.  R. J. Godfrey was granted a  building permit for an addition costing $800 to a house  recently .purchased.  The commission was informed three street lights have  been added to-the village system. One is on Fletcher road  at Gower Point road, another  further along Fletcher road  and the third on.the lower  hill of Seehelt Highway between the bottom and the.jog  in the* highway.  Two other lights are to    be  arranged', one on North Fletch- ;  er road and the other at    La-  mont's. corner.  The Village Commission on  Tuesday night passed the $25,-  000 building permit sought by  Ben Lang, druggist of1 Gibsons  and Seehelt for the construction of a store and office  building in Gibsons.  This, means that construction can start any. time now.  The building which will be on  Marine Drive,, will be located  on the property where 7 the  John Coleridge .office how.  stands. " s,  It will - be 46 by 40 feet on  a lot 46.8 by 18.25 feet. It will  be two storeys with eight  rooms: The,'building will be  used for a drug store and offices.

Gibson went through  the. windshield when the car  crashed. The car is a total loss.  - Later that evening, Pax__  Johnson and -two ' passengecs,  failed to make the-S-turn wesfe  of Gibsons, rolling over into  the swampy water, where the  car occupants narrowly <e_?��  caped drowning: before striigr"  gling to safety. 7  At Reid's corner,  Reg PanX-  going up the hill on Saturday-  evening,    overran    the    cunce  and did considerable    damage?  to the right side of the car.  A minor accident at Vh&  Shell Station resulted in t__e  pumps being damaged and tfee  glass globe being shattered,  when Gordon Plows misjudged  the turn.   .  On Tuesday, Aug. 2, about  11.30 p.m., cows in the road  were the cause of an accident  when Fred Feeney struck one,  killing it, and doing about  $300 damage to< the car he was  driving. This was in front ��I  the Irwin Motel, Gibsons.  Paul Johansen, the first  time driving-his car after th<-  previous accident, ran' two  wheels oyer into the ravine ��__  'the side "of the Seehelt.

Fae Cherry Queen or  Pender Harbour Re3atta  Fae Cherry was voted queen  of the Pender Harbour Regatta last Saturday at- the annual  swimming class picnic leading  into the Regatta on Aug. 13.  Selection of Miss Cherry  was a popular one and she will  officially; open and reign over  the  entire regatta.  The opening highlight of the  regatta which will be held at  Irvine's Landing this year  (transportation will be provided from Madeira..Park to get  to Irvine's Landing) will be a  decorated boat parade starting  at 10.30 a.m. from Murdoch's  float. There will be three classes, best decorated, most novel  and most comical. Helen Bowdler is chairman of this decorated boat parade and Bernice  Fisher is offering all the assistance she can. There will be  Cubs hit trail  Last Sunday's hike was- a  popular event .with the members of thfev first and second  Wolf Cub Packs of* Gibsons.  They left the ^Gibsons Post. Office in the morning, and went.  down the Port Mellon road to  the Ennemark Trail.  Up the Ennemark Trail  they went, until they reached  the snow-line, accompanied by  three Scouts, Winston Robinson, Llbyd Bingley and Tommy Helena. The whole party  was in charge of . the leader,  Mr. Lome Blain.  Lunch was enjoyed at the  snow line, on the banks of a  little Creek, before the party  trekked back. - .; ;:  7 Cubs are reminded! of the ���  trip to Camp Byng August 21,  and asked to watch next issue  of the Coast News for details.  New thrill for Soap Box Derby winner  British Columbia's Soap-Box  Derby winner at Mission, had  the honor of being at the-  helm of one of the fastest  speedboats in Peninsula waters. '.-.'..  The lad was Ray Biggs, 15,  of Nanaimo, Vancouver Island  one of a party of 20 on a Saturday jaunt to.the O&O Log-,  ging Camp at the end of Narrows Arm.  It happened this way: The  Seehelt party when it visited  Mission for; the run-down of  the B;C. Derby finals received  such pleasant treatment while  there it was felt ny those who  attended the finals that come-  thing should: be done in\^return.   ' v7'"  The result was the organization of a party including Ray  Biggs, the B.C.   winner,    Jim  Gunn, chairman of the Soap  Box Derby organization in  B.C. who accompanied Ray as  far as Seattle on his trip to  Akron, Ohio for the international*: finals; Eric Ramsden,  provincial editor of the Vancouver Province which has  supported the Derby;; Mrs.  Ramsden and son Brian, also  daughter and son-in-law Mr.  and Mrs. F. M. Ratushny; Walter Drew, Dominion Tire Company and promoter in Vancouver of the derby; William Parsons of Seehelt Theatre, who  has done considerable Derby  work in Seehelt; Miss Trudy  Santy, New Westminster and  keeper of Soap Box Derby records, also Fred Cruice, editor  of The Coast News, and Mrs.  Cruice.  Ted Osb.orn, senior and junior were hosts assisted by Mrs.  Osborn, senior and junior, Ernie Pearson and Mrs. Pearson.  Dianne Pearson and Terry Osborn were among the younger  fry aboard.  The party left Porpoise Bay  on the Osborn speedboat  Tzonie and after a fast trip  reached the neatly arranged  Osborn camp where lunch provided by the Osborns was  served. Following this some of  the party went fishing ��� Roy  was the only lucky fisherman  to catch one. Others went for  speedboat rides in vicinity of  the camp.  On the way home, after a  visit to the Skookum Chuck,  Ray took the helm under the  watchful eye of Ted Osborn,  Sr.  The party arrived back at  Porpoise Bay , shortly after  7.30 p.m.  Ray who started beaming  with smiles when he was asked to take the helm of "the  speedboat was still beaming  on landing and continued his  duties as boatman, helping to  dock the craft after all passengers had debarked.  "It sure was One swell ride  and it sure was swell of Mr.  Osborn to let me steer the  boat. Boy but was it different  from steering a soap-box wagon. It sure was a big thrill,"  I?ay said.  He added he wanted to  thank Mr. Osborn for letting  him run' the craft which he  termed as "one swell boat."  Later the same night Ray and  Mr. Gunn left for Vancouver  where they moved on to Seattle on the first leg of the run  to Akron. Mr. Gunn went as  far as Seattle, only. ,  prizes for each class.  . There will be canoe tilting,  'surf-board events, inboard arii  outboard motor events, als$  log rolling and other events-  All the regatta committee is  hoping for is a fine day. The'  members of the committee are  of the opinion that given . ~&.  fine day the rest of the regain  ta will take care of itself.

Sixty-five certificates for  proficiency in swimming, diving and life-saving were presented to the Muriel HodsoD  pupils.  After their exertions the  youngsters had appetites like  loggers, and the mountains of  food disappeared like magic.  The Coca Cola Company donated soft drinks, and local Per_-  der Harbour merchants donated all other supplies.  Bernice Fisher of Madeira  Park made a marvellous cake,  15x24 inches, decorated with  a beach scene, complete with  swimmers, instructors ?nd harbour, and presented it as -he  final dessert item. 3W-'Oficl ;  2 Coast News Aug. 11, 1955  It  Published by   Seehelt  Peninsula  News  Ltd.       4  every Trursday, ai Gibsons, B.C.

Ever look over a nice new rakish-looking car, standi .--  ing still? ��� '.'���.".  Both are quite harmless. An insurance man would  rate them a good insurance risk. �����     .       '-.'���'.'  Now take some fool driver* put him in that nice new  car on that nice stretch of road and what have you? The  insurance risk wtould change drastically.  Who is to blame? The fool driver of course.  Editorializing in this manner is all very well but At  cannot cut down the unnecessary number of road fatalities  that occur. ,    -  What could cut down the number of accidents?  Stiff er penalties in our courts would be the'best  thing. The lash'makes criminals hesitate. Stiff penalties  could be a deterrent.  Xhere was a time when a drunken driver was jailed..  There was no alternative. His car was impounded.  If drunken drivers had no option but jail facing  them there would be more coffee drunk as the final drink  "for the road." ���������  . Are our road laws too lenient?  Stiffer penalties as a deterrent could cut insurance  rates. It would also cut down ijbhe number of damage suits  in courts. These days jurors think nothing of handing out  thousands of dollars to some accident victim. The Coast  News is not .opposed to this idea but it does seem like  putting the cart before the horse,  The psychology that "insurance covers us no matter  what happens" is not good. It leads fto carelessness' andl  recklessness. It adds to insurance rates bcause present laws  do not appear to have the desired effect. ��     "  In many instances payment of a fine is like going to  city hall to pay taxes. This is unsound and is having the  effect of debasing law. True it is a convenience but it i__j  one that is weakening the strength of law generally. It  would be better to regard if as a tax, label it so and remove}  it from the jurisdiction of courts, entirely. Victoria is having Commissionaires tag over-parked cars. Sounds like a  sensible idea. But it does not help to tighten other aspects  of motor laws.  The argument could be that these petty charges v  laid against motorists generally]x>are bnngingv.law. jnta clis?.  repute. There should be a diYMirig line between "huisance*''  laws and the laws that cover serious matters. ���/';  Put teeth into the more serious laws. The situation  could not get worse. It might get better  BY   L,S.J.  One can tell the season of  the Ku-Mlux is here by the  wandering bands of all ages  parading the roadsides and  ���open glades of old logging  where, there is some likelihood  of finding a berry patch. The  long cold has not allowed  rnany of the vines to pollenize  arid there is a short crop and  this makes for much more diligence.  One finds these small groups,  all over the place. We have a  few vines handy to home arid  one patch in particular is infested with Mr. McDowell's  Wild Rose and of all the places  this black fruity morsel congregates this boma or thorn  shield is the.worst.

There is an element of mystery here though, because there  are quite a few blue grouse  around yet but, the. trouble I  think, is the new; forest canopy that grows- up so quickly,  even at the higher levels, alters their feeding-habits' and  they do riot flock together like  they used to for their fall migration back to    the    balsarh  belt at 3,500 ft. elevation.  *      *   - * ..  - v  .

I do not know what  success other people living  here have with their vegeta-  . toles but I do know that we  have had phenomenal success  since we came. The house was  landed on the lot next to the  Legion Hall on June 6. My  wife arrived the evening of  the 7th. We cleared some space  > for vegetables On the 8th and  planted them on the 9th.  A kind neighbor gave my  wife some small plants of lettuce that were planted along  with the seeds on the 9th June.  Other kind neighbors gave us  spinach, cauliflower and brus-  sels sprouts all of which are  big healthy plants today..  On July 18 we had our first  feed of lettuce   and    broccali  and on the 21st spinach.    Our  scarlet runners  are    six    feet  high, our peas almost ready to  1 use, these were from seed, the  lettuce    and    spinach      from  plants. ,'-..'  Maybe the weather has been  exceptionally favorable but if  good  wishes   and  kindly   acts  of the  neighbors    affect    the  growth of    vegetables    I    am  sure it had a .great deal to do  *   with the wonderful .success we  i  have had. B. L. Cope.  FOREST FIRES  DESTROV  NEEDED  Editor: Your timely article  on Seehelt Incorporation featured in last week's issue o$  The Coast News, was mpst  commendable in its succinct  clarity.  I hope it will inspire greater realizatiofi of the responsibilities to be shared by all  residents, to assure continuance of the privileges we enjoy today, thanks to the voluntary efforts of some community-minded citizens.  Such things as the cost of  equipping and maintaining our  splendid Volunteer. Fire Brigade, for example, has to date  been met through the efforts  of the. Seehelt Board of Trade,  by direct, public appeals and  through entertainments arranged. This same B of T was  also responsible in acquiring  the site and partly clearing  -Hackett Park in Seehelt as  well as representing the Community, in achieving general  improvements to roads, wharf,  public transportation, etc., to -  mention a few of the benefits  in which we all share.  We cannot expect this happy situation to go on for ever  -unless we all^ do something  about it.. Through incorporation we can with proper zoning assure that Seehelt will remain the beauty-spot and* best  planned community on the  Sunshine Coast. With our Own  tax money we can provide for  all necessary services and such  progress, as the monies available to the incorporated area  allows. Selecting the proper  men or women to form a Village Commission that would  with prudence, budget within  the means of the corporation  at all times, should create no  problem in this area so rich in  tradition with outstanding citizens.  Let us meet our obligations  by incorporating and use    Se-.  chelt taxes for    the   progress  and welfare of Seehelt:  A. Johnston.  A few years ago it was my  privilege to travel on a train  for several hours with a man,  who is still an influential figure in Canadian life. I felt it  to be an honor to know him.  In the course of our conversation he told me of a physical  complaint he-had endured for  over forty years, which had  caused hirn a lot of pain, and  he said that kept him humble.  Evidently nothing could be  done about it; it was a corti-  plaint he could not discuss;  just 'endure. He had tried ;a  score of remedies all to no  avail, so he kept on with ja  cheerful countenance aijd  none guessed the strain lie  was under. He was one of the  vast army of silent sufferers  who keep their sorrows Ttb  themselves. When we are j;in  trouble we go for help to ceTr-  77tainA people; it is. fairly certain they are in more difficult  situations that we have ever  known, that is the mission of  sorrow, as the Arabs say: "All  sunshine makes a  desert."  I saw a book, recently with  the title: "Troubles we don't  talk About." I thought it was  a good title, and expect the  book had a good sale: There are  few people who don't have  troubles of some kind, which  they do not discuss, even with  their  friends.  Most people carry a skeleton in the cupboard. A farmer  near an Ontario - village had a  reputation for being lazy. He  moved slowly and when working with ethers seemed indolent, and was glad when quitting time came. . Neighbors  talked about him and exaggerated. One day he collapsed  suddenly, and the }ocal doctor  said the man nad carried on  with a slowly developing form  of tuberculosis, which the doctor had not thought it wise to  "discuss.  We would refrain^ from  striking a cripple because his  affliction was so noticeable;  indeed we would never think  of injuring anyone whom we  knew to be in sorrow. * But  there are many whose grief is  not manifest, whose wounds  are invisible, and >we often act  with a haste and '^impatience  that become? cruel. ������ \  *     *���      *  Recently a lawyer, 62 years  of age, took his own life. When  a child he had suffered from  infantile paralysis which left  him severely handicapped for  life/ He had carried on for  many years but evidently had  never overcome a spirit of  rancor, a sense of injustice,  which we can at least understand. H�� left a letter iri which  he had written: "Surely rio  one, riot even God, can condemn me for putting an end  to) my unhappy, useless life."  He was wrong. Doubtless his  life was not useless and it need  not have been unhappy, but it  would be a strange person  who could read that pathetic '  note without emotion. And  one cannot forget that there  must be many who feel about  life much as that lawyer did.  It is no exaggeration to say  there are millions who bear  sorrow with restraint and  magnificent fortitude; people  who, like King Hezekiah writ  ten of in the Book of Kings,  bear their sackcloth within,  next to their flesh. Outwardly  they are calm, even cheerful,  but within they suffer ��� and  their restraint increases our  respect for mankind.  *      * .   >*  About'2 years ago a clergyman died; in 'this country, who  in early life had lost his right  arm. During his . college days  he. had spent some time studying in Edinburgh, where the  great D"r' Blackie was a professor. The student was asked  to read a passage in his Greek  Testament. He stood up holding the book in his left hand.  Twice Dr. Blackie said,'"Hold  your book with both hands."  When he finally saw that the  youth had only one arm, the  teacher was Overcome with  shame. He left his desk and  came down, saying "Will you  ever forgive me;" I; am more  ashariied than I can tell":"  There isn't room for more  except to say that there are  many brave souls whose troubles are not obvious..' Their  wounds are concealed; their  skeletons are in cupboards.  Let us be kind and tolerant.  Our quotation is by St. Paul:  "There was given to me a  thorn in the flesh."  WILDLIFE   CYCLES  Fish, insects, birds and animals pass through cycles. In  Canada's northland there are  periods of scarcity followed by  renewal of abundance. These  affect all the small animals.  The Arctic f��*, the most, important fur-bearing animal, of  our Arctic, has a four - year  cycle similar to. that of the  1 lemmings. The lemming can  increase from scarcity to incredible numbers, and every  fourth year there is an overflow supply. The lynx reaches  a peak about every ten years  at the same time aS the snow-  shoe- rabbit. "'���-,-  * Application for /  WATER LICENSE  WATER ACT.  (Section 6.)

The Board of School Trustees,  School District No. 46 (Seehelt).  ��� BY  CHUCK TOMPKlNS  The hitters of * the    league  had a good week as it was-a  week of   high-scoring   <game|;7  On   Tuesday  night the,   FireJ-|7  men drubbed Port Mellon lO-}  ,5 in a free hitting affair arid;|  oh Wednesday the Merchant's 1  Gofdy Johnson chucked a    :3-f  hitter only'"'to lose to    Wilson"  Creek   8-0./ Port Mellon, walloped Seehelt ;9-2' on Thursday  night and   the    Firemen ;; got  their second win of the week  by downing Pender 13-2.      ^v ^  '���;���     Pender     absorbed     another;  beating Fridayi night as Wilson  Creek thumped them' 13-4 ' and;  the Firemen were 'edged    out7  2-1 by TPbrt^ellon on Sunday!  night in the-.only close'  game7  of theweek. '77^  By the time you read :this;  column the MPS League ;will7  practically, be history for 7195,5.7  The way'it looks now is that  Port Mellon has' about cinched  ". the Ian Drummond Memorial'  trophy for the league ��� championship.    ' ���   '  The Firemen still have a  very slim chance if they win  against Wilson Creek . tonight  and Port Mellonv loses its two  remaining games'with Pender  and theMerchants.  This is a.challenge cup    and  . will- be played off between the;  , first four teams in the, league  which   are Port  Mellon, ��� Firemen, Wilson Creek and    Pender.   ���  I for one cannot see why all  six teams in the league do not  compete, for this award as -rit  would give the two bottom  teams something to play for.  The "Popular Player" ballot on page one will definitely  be the last so get your votes  in right away. The contest is,  close and it looks like a very  few votes could decide the  winner. The deadline is August 15.  Don't be too surprised if the  B.C. Lions upset the Toronto  Argos Wednesday night.  It looks as if a Babe .Ruth  ,. League may be" a reality here  next year. Fine idea-but I  hope it gets more support  from the ��� fans than Little  League did this year. 7       ;     *  I will be picking the "Sports  Week".all-star softball.team in 7  the hear future and once  again I wiuld like to say that  this is not the t official league  all-star team but it is merely  the opinion of your sports  editor.
