JJ3 but the place and time of  meeting will be announced later.  The decline of bedside  nursing drew varied comment  from members of the meeting  but Dr.7 Hugh Inglis was of the *  opinion if there was a decline  reported it must be the fault  of the' records because he  noted that Miss Cooper was  kept quite busy each day. Miss  Ross, the nurse, explained she  had made. 140 calls during the  month she was on the job and  quite a number of the visits involved bedside nursing. She  explained what bedside care  meant and with it the general  health instruction service.  Such care was the primary  object of the VON she said,  and it should; be kept at the  top of the VON service.  Mr. A. E. Ritchey, president  of the branch and chairman of  the. meeting said that costs of  visits showed a decline during  the last .year compared with,  those of the previous year.  ��� ��� Both Mr. Ritchey and L. S.  Jackson when talking on costs  said that if the VON could get  one "dollar from every person  VON  scholarship purposes instead  of making annual .' Christmas  gifts to associated businesses.

'  The Howe Sound fair . committee meeting in the' Parish  Hall Monday night decided to  look into the matter of expanding the fair and' will call f  on individuals who have had  experience with fairs to give  advice.  They will ask James W.  Wardrup, president of the B.C.  Fairs association and Mr. Pep-  par, manager of the Port Moody Fair, to speak at a meeting  of the Howe Sound Fair committee on a date to be set by  the visitors.  Ther^e was considerable discussion, over the future and  Roy, Malyea, chairman in opening theX discussion said the  first thing he would like to  see would be; a larger" committee working under the direction of an executive com:  mittee. There would be subcommittees in this set-up  which could take considerable  of the load off the shoulders  of Mrs. .LeFeuvre, the now  busy secretary and treasurer.  "IV have worked) on numer-  ous.committees in the past,''  said Mr. Malyea, "but I have  never had such co-operation  from1 any as I have had from  the fair committee this year."  The discussion then spread  into the future of the fair generally and it was decided that  the trustees of the Brothers'  Community Park, Mr. L. S.  Jackson, Robert Burns, village clerk and Robert Mac-.  Nichol of the Canadian Legion  should attend the next meeting and offer what advice they  could towards obtaining:: better accommodation for _ the  fair. .  A motion was passed, discussed and left in abeyance, for  the time being, that a fair... association be formed: thus relieving the Farmers' Institute  :: a^7rthe>?W^  the responsibilityV:of -; sponsoring the fair..  It was argued thae the fair  was reaching such;proportions  that it would become necessary, in order to get wider  representation and a more  ccmpleee coverage of th coastal area, to enlarge the organization and it was felt .this  could be achieved more readily by forming a fair association. ,..  There was also discussion on  the entries from the schools  and an invitation will be sent  out to teachers who will be  meeeing soon at Pender Harbour, to see that their schools  enter competitions. It was also  W.S. Kennedy  Selma Park, dies  The funeral service for Walter Stewart Kennedy of Selma.

Mr. Kennedy passed away  on August 25, in Shaughnessy  Hospital,1 where he had been  taken but a few days before.  He was in his 69th year.  Mr.' Kennedy had served in  the CFA, the 39th battalion,  during the. First World War.  He was employed until retirement as a- blacksmith, with the  City of Vancouver.  Mr. and Mrs. Kennedy came  to Selma Park to build their  home and have it ready for  his retirement. They have  lived there as active, well-  liked members of the community. Mr: Kennedy was a  member of the Mount Lebanon  Lodge, AF. & AM. I.  He leaves his wife Agnes, a  sister-in Scotland, a niece in  Nanaimo, t. Mrs. 7 J. Gardner,,  and.a nephew in Ontario, William Cambell Kennedy.  Mrs. Kennedy is coming  back to live among her friends  in Selma Park.  suggested' that entries be .lim- .  ited' to those printed in the  prize list and distinctive sub-  ects be allotted to the various  grades. This would allow  teachers to select the best two*  or three efforts and enter  them into competition with  other, schools. As competitions;  now operate here is no limit  to entries and the number is  increasing rapidly.  Mrs. LeFeuvre in submitting a financial statement ' of  the fair said receipts passeci)  the $600 mark and after bills  are paid the fair committee.'.  will have the best bank balance it  has ever had.

It has been criticised because it has not been on the  job a little more on one specific point ��� and that point  concerns a petition which was supposed to be circulated.  It is a point well taken but on the other hand what-  can The Coast News do when it cannot find any person who  will take the responsibility of admitting* there was to be a  petition.  From the very start of the movement to obtain a  ���wider fire protection area The Coast News has left its* columns wide open for news and discussion. The Coast News  is not taking the* responsibility of pressing for the wider  fire district. Everyone knows, but whether they will admit  jt is another matter, that such a movement is necessary in  view of the attitude of the Gibsons Village Commission in  not allowing the Fire Department to go beyond the confines of the village.  There is good reason for this. The commission is responsible to the ratepayers of Gibsons where tax money  is spent. By provincial government law, the Municipal Act,  -ratepayers' money must not be spent outside the munici-  gjality. Because of this, the Village Commission has limited  ihe use of the fire equipment to the municipal area.  The Coast News does not have to stress the need for  general fire protection. If there are those so blind they  ��sE__u_6t''see such a need, they, are living in a strange world  ��f their own making, and one that will be dispelled quickly  when" a serious fire occurs near enough to give- them  it. real scare. ��� i  If there is anyone, either for or against the idea of  wider fire protection, with an opinion to express, the columns of The Coast News are wide open for them to air  their views. Beyond that we can,go no further. The movement was not started ,by ^TJbuejCoast: NW? rflor/; wi}l it be  $:ept alive by^this:pjaper iftfibfe surrounding; populace is not  interested. ,7     ' !

So  the "pros" and the "cons".can have a field day-r^ if they  will only do something about it.V.  Editor: The recent meeting  at Roberts Creek Legion Hall  of the Victorian Order of  Nurses might as well have  been held at Timbuctoo for all  the general public cares, and  it would appear that there is  a feeling afoot that the days of  this hoary relic of the Wild  West has about lived out its  usefulness  in these parts.  There was not a new face  there, except these hardy annuals who come every meeting  hoping, like Micawber, something will turn up. They must  have gone home with about  the same thoughts I had: viz;  that we had better turn the  business over to the Public  Health Service, a' bureaucratic  benevolent society of very  high order judging by the  to-do and bustle of the- staff,  and number  of official  cars.  It . was this same festering  fungus that ousted'the VON  from looking after the school  Children which was one of our  main sources of��revenue, also,  our pipeline to the parents  who were thus aware that this  local organization was looking  after things, "and whose meetings were open to all and sundry.  It is poor consolation to  know that such a worthy institution must be submerged  by such a sticky mesalliance  .as welfare and politics, and  we shall surely rue the day  when the VON finds its usefulness hereabouts at an end.  A VON Member.  A reply to  Editor: The question of an.  extended fire department area  lias readhed a point, how that  the Village Commission has re-;  siricted the area to village  _itnits, where 'people are" beaming bitter and calling  neighbors names. I am interested in the.." situation��� sufficiently interested^ to have  made some inquiries through  which I gained information I  tielieve other interested people  should know. The irate taxpayer from Gower and Pratt  who rapped our little knuck-.  les last week is apparently unaware of the true situation.  Even if an arrangement  eould be "made with the Village Commission whereby we  each pay a tax for the privilege of having��a fire truck  soar to our assistance when  'Our homes catch on fire, what  as the advantage? That fire-  fighting troupe needs a water  sjipply. Most of us out in the  country have a 1/2 or 3/4 in.  pipeline coming from a spring  or well where pressure is low  sead supply limited. Even the  people on Pratt road who are  connected to the watermain  js&ve such a smalt-line with so  |&any people on it. "that the  _3re brigade could not, get water to quench the recent blaze  cm Pratt Road.  The Soames Point people  ���Save organized an improve-  aaent district under the' Water '  7&ct and have a 4-inch water-  main supplying their district;  if they can make arrahge-  ments for village fire-fight-  iBg equipment to' serve their  area, they have :a water supply  attdi will receive some prbtec-  tio'n. Very probably reduced  insurance rates will' be lowered by almost enough to pay  for the protection.-  More people  World population has grown  by 35 million in a single year  according to estimates given-  in the latest quarterly issue of  "Population and Vital Statistics Reports" published by the  United Nations Statistical Of:  fice.  The latest figures are based  on estimates showing a world  population of 2,528 million as  of mid-year 1954. The estimate  for the mid-1953 Vwas- 2,493*  million. ���'   ���::-.:..'./::���"������ -?x  A breakdown of population  by continents gives the following figures: Africa, 216,000,-  000; North America, 233,000,-  000; South America, 121,100,-  000; Asia (excluding USSR),  1,323,000,000; Europe (excluding USSR), 406,500,000; ^Oceania, 14,200,000 and the USSR  214,500,000. .  But we; at Gower have no  such; water main. If "Taxpayer" would .like, to give his  name and act as the organizer  ~ of an improvement district  .-:.:with power to set,up a. commission to get us a water sup-  ,ply; fire projection, even  lighting and', zoning regula-.  tions, he would probably get  support.  ~**0iere has been a study  made %f the possibilities for a  metropolitan water supply, for  a large area extending from  beyond Hopkins Landing on  the east to * beyond Roberts  Creek,on the west, the village  of Gibsons would very probably join the larger group to  their advantage and ours, and  we would be in a position to  get a big fire truck (one big  enough to warrant support  to the extent of about 1/3 its  cost from Federal Civil Defence) and have real protection for cur homes, as well as  the convenience of an adequate water supply. '  I know the big objection  is going to be cost. People are  going: to fear a great increase  in taxes, and very soon we will  have the "plea that because of  the excessive number. of -poor  pensioners in our community,  we are inflictjng -a hardship  upon those unable to meet it; I .  don't believe the facts bear out  the lament.  . ^ ���:  .  First   of   all,   reduced fire  insurance costs and elimination  of present-water coStsifbrV bur  wells, pdmpsi,   springs;   welter  rights, etc., will iebver a/large   -  po rtio-iof tthe exposes for'this   !  bigger water supply. -'-In.1'the -Second" place, I donH believe   we   :  have an excessive number   of'5  poor perisibne-^.  There have been two surveys  made in the area, one by   the   ;  BC Power Commission and one  by the Village Clerk. Both arrived at very similar . figures  which indicate that only 15.3  percent of our taxpayers are  pensioners and that their prop-  erty comprises about 13 percen1-  of assessed valuation?  Actual cost of the project is  an unknown factor because we  have never had a route or sour-  ices of supply.laid out.by engineers, and I do not know total  assessment for the area to be  included. But if "Taxpayer  from Gower and Pratt," or anyone in the area concerned, who  has time to put on the problem  and some understanding of how  a metropolitan water district  Should be laid out, would/form  a committee to study ways and  means, petitions or plebiscites  or whatever is needed, I would  be quick to give whole-hearted  support and offer assistance  within my capabilities.  I am not a good politician,  and after next Tuesday I will  not have the time to act on a  committee, conduct or attend  meetings. But I will be glad to  offer service as a typist for  Such a committee, cut stencils,  write letters, make copies of  statements or statistical data,  do any of the joe-jobs for  Which. .1 am; fitted. .��� How?alioufc7  it, ^Taxpayer"?'  Cloe Day.  VIOLINS, VITTLES, AND  VIRTUOSOS  BY L.S.J.  In my early days an orange  was ah orange,    and    if    one  were lucky at Christmas    one  might get a blood orange from  Spain-or North Africa. It left  no doubt that ho matter where  it came from,    it was    juicy,  sweet, arid the quarters melted  in your mouth like ice cream,  in a recent sales talk having  to* do  with    the    Californian  product  that  has  all  the  earmarks of    an    orange,    these  were some of the words    that  extolled   the  virtues   of     this  green, painted yellow piece of  indigestible ' effrontery:    NPro  vitamin A,* Inositol, Bioflavonoids,, and protopectms. Now I  ask as a plain man, who wants  an orange with all  that junk  in it. Not me! I well remember  oldi Dune Mac saving up    the  oranges that were doled    out  one at a time alongside    one's  plate in the cookhouse at sup-  pertime. He would  add them  up and figure how many    he  would have  when    he    went  down, and when T pointed out  to him most of them would be  shrivelled up and would    not  be edible, he replied    "never  et one oi those danged tnings  in my life and    ain't,   gunna  start now."  That was back in the ten-  hour day and gaffers like him  would come out of the woods  or off the boom with nary a  whimper after strenuously battling with wood in some form  or other all on their own, The  likes of Dune all had their  own ideas of how to live best;  and' what to eat, and they  grumbled' very little if sometimes the grub got a bit patchy  on account of the meat had  got put off somewhere else,  and we had cured or salt meat  for a day or two.  When the fresh meat, arrived after two or three days  travel it was not in the best  of shape but it was quite al^  right if a bit high ./and we  would be regaled, w^h frying  meat even if it was off the  shoulder, and good teeth were  a stern necessity-. In fact we  got a lot of fried; meat for  breakfast as eggs were a bit  of a problem and were generally reserved .for Sunday with  a bit of ham.    V* ������������������-   -:'A  We learnt things, or,at least  I did, by trial and error. ..In  the morning -I could not eat  enough to. keep 'going to 12  unless I started on meat first,  then prunes or some such, arid  topped it off with a bowl of  mush with lots ;of sugar. This  would generally keep one in  trim till lunch.  The exotic feeding of later  days coincided with the eight  hour day) and the intricate  machinery for handling logs  which lessened individual effort,' and the jhuniari powerhouse required less fuel. This  theory is most utterly proven  by the decrease in the consumption of snoose. Many a  log moved into the water with  snoose when all else failed!.'.It  was quite the thing along  about 4 p.m. of a tough day to  see the snoose box being handed around. A tap in the lid  and a hooked forefinger well  loaded worked wonders on  the last lap.  It was many years before  the woods were cut back  enough for the problems of  coming into '. dinner to arise,  and when it did there were  difficulties galore. The small  camps had " a lunch camp out  in the woods; Just a rough  table and benches under a  shake roof, and a box out of  the way of depredators with  bread, etc., which was packed  up by the crew. V  It was the job of one of the  flunkeys as a rule .to pack up  a container with meat, spuds,  and pie, etc., in separate compartments the idea being a hot  meal. His would be the job of  lighting a fire and getting  things hot to make tea ' and.  coffee, and after the drew had  gone back to the woods, to  wash the dishes, tidy up and  off back to the beach.  The lunch box and the thermos bottle eventually overcame this tomfoolery and the  present day lunch v table in  the cookhouse with its piles of  sandwiches, cans of this and  that, ��� pickles and heaven  knows what, all nicely piled'  up to; be mauled into disorder  by all and sundry, making up  their own -lunch; There was  generally four or five types of  sandwiches, pie, cake ^nd  fruit of all sorts. The cost, was  appalling which perhaps cannot be helped, but the. chronic,  waste out'in the woods fed a  small: arihy^of ithe: wilds;folk;" ���..���  One could always tell where  a crew ate its lunch. -There  would, be some -ravens - and "-  jays hanging around waiting  their turn to clean u^Tqma-  tes, half eaten eggs, sand-  wiphes, half cans Vsardines'," apples and oranges half bitten  intoi and thrown away; a  shocking waste. It is .very  fortunate that some of the big  outfits are able to operate without a cookhouse. Come of the  smaller camps -reckon ��� to lose  up to $2,000 a month feeding*  a small crew; thisi seems incredible-but it is a fact.  Apart from these uninteresting details Dune ; was a hoe-  down fiddler of rerioun especially in the country; north  of Seymour Narrows. I belieye  he, had a homestead in the Salmon River valley. At one  time or another in his career  he had been round a grama-  phone a great deal and spent  his time learning by ear a rather famous piece of music on  his violin. It was the Spanish  air "La Paloma" and Dune  could really pour, it on but it  always met with some diffidence  in the    bunkhcuse . so  Dune would move out to   the  .blacksmith shop or the woodshed and play    himself    into  tears, believe it or not.

He was C. Kllgour  who is now with a large Portland,  Oi^., printing firm.  He remembers when there  were only two stores in the  area, one being Hoffman's and  the other was one he thought  started with a "W" but that  was as far as his mind would  take him. He did say there  were some remarkable changes in the district and said he  was enjoying his first trip  back^ to the Sunshine Coast-  He thought The Coast News  was a well-prirtted paper.  :?t^*x&m  -:AfcL^tBfflES'7t)F'v'    ' ���-���v 'I  BPIIJJIMG MATERIALS  LUMBER-^EMENT~BRi<^  we ��aMy tMe STJffiS.

Investigating taxation figures, Liberty found that 330  Canadians who now earn over  $100,000 a year are deemed  millionaires. Actually, these  330 titans average $140,000  annually.  Altogether, 1,510 Canadians  today boast incomes between  $50,000 and $100,000 ��� or a  fraction less than 1 percent of  the total income in Canada. In  taxes, the poor stiffs pay  $44,100,000 ��� 4.12 percent of  the nation's total income . tax  bill.  They've discovered income  tax makes it tough to pile up  $1,000,000 in Canada today. If  you were to earn $1,000,000  this year, income tax would  snatch  $749,220.

"They come  pot-bellied and skinny, evil  and good, vain and modest,  sane and balmy. About the  only thing they have in common is a  million  dollars."  How do you get to be a  millionaire?  Liberty asked the millionaires themselves, and received  a variety of answers. "Hard-  driving ambition, luck, being  kind to the poor, taking risks,  ��� a wish to compensate for  grinding poverty, hoarding  cash thriftily��� or simply by  inheriting the lucre are some  of the.ways listed by Canada's  Croesuses."  A few millionaires, like  newspaper barcn Lord Beav-  erbrook, were" more specific.  Beaverbrook, who once peddled papers in Newcastle, N.B.  says, "If the first $50,000 that  counts. You have to feel those  early deals right dewn to the  pit of the stomach, if you are  going to be a great man of  business." And.the one-time  Canadian bond salesman ticks  off on his fingers these attributes for his . own success:  "Drive. Industry. Judgment.  Health." '  -. "    . V  Garfield Westcn, Toronto -  born baker's son who parlayed a natual penchant for making dough into a financial empire that once required him to  pay $6,000,000 in taxes alone,  credits his success to enthusiasm rather than to any form  of business cunning.  "It was the' daring and adventurous spirit, that's all," he  says. His advice to would-be  emulators: "Get hold of one  thing you believe in, and sell-  it for ail., you are worth. In  making it, you will make  yourself."   ���  ' Edward Plunkett Taylor,  Canada's affable horse-racing  millionaire and probably one  of the shrewdest industrialists  in the nation, once said "Work  is my hobby."

McLaughlin,  chairman of General Motors of  Canada, admits he got a good  start by entering his father's  carriage factory at Oshawa,  but the man who was born in  the tiny Ontario town cf Innis-  kellen, adds: "I had to work,  and work hard and conscien-  ciously. You'll succeed if you  do just that," he says.  The ability to make money  in large amounts is not restricted to the man. One of .  Canada's ' self -made women  millionaires is Muskoka, Ontario's stocky, dynamic Viola  MacMillan, president of Viola-  Mac Mines Ltd., in British Columbia. Viola and her husband  George have prospected across  Canada. They bought their $10  million ViolaMac mine for  $65,000. She sold stock to raise  the $40,000 down payment.  "To be a success," says Toronto millionaire real-estate;  agent George Ridout, "you  have toi be aggressive ��� and  have the ability to make people like you." Before stumbling on this simple rule nine  years ago, George was a Toronto milkman. '4  Summing up Liberty says a  study of Canada's millionaires  revealed these three patterns:  "The wealthiest men seldom  showed outstanding ability until they entered the world of  money. They were average, or  slightly above average scholars; often their first business  venture failed. !  "Most men who made most  money had little in their early  lives, and many were brought  up in a severe, Puritannical  tradition.  "Practically all showed a  single-minded purpose which  enabled them to make it their  hobby, too. They didn't mind  working 16 hours a day, because they,enjoyed it."  ���It seems that hard work, after all, is still the key to success.

BY   CHUCK   TOMPKINS  North Vancouver knocked  Port Mellon out of the district  finals over the week-end but  they got a lot more competition than they bargained for.  ��� Saturday night at Port Mel"  Ion the local boys went down  4-2 but they held the visitors  scoreless after the second inning and if it hadn't been for  one bad inning it could have  been   a different  story.  On Sunday in North Vancouver, Port Mellonjed 1-0 going into the 4th inning but  again they had the one bad  break and wound up on the  short end of a 4-1 score.  I think that Port Mellon  made a better than expected \  showing and proved tnat the  calibre of ball on the Peninsula is just as good as you will,  find anywhere on the coast. So  thanks a lot fellas foi giving  us a good name.  The big upset of the year  happened on Sunday as the  underdog Pender Harbour  Athletics walloped' the highly  disorganized Firemen 9-5 to  take their series two games to  one and to assure themselves  a berth in the Osborne cup  finals.  The .big boy for Pender was  pitcher Ralph Noble Who  chucked a fine game as well  as adding a couple of hits in  his own behalf.  Mayor Lloyd Jacksbn, of Hamilton, presenting the Seagram Shield to Al Balding, Credit Valley pro whose record 204  score won the Canadian Professional Golfers Association championship at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club.  Watch your driving  when   school opens  One of the longest hit balls  of the season was hit by Pender's "Babe" Kamerle, ab&ut  260 feet to his off-field which  ; is quite a wallop in any league.  The Firemen couldn't  seem  to do anything right    but    in  ,.,? my*.opinion Noble would have  ;__ad them on one of their'"good  days as it just seemed to be  his day to win.  The fans from Pender can  be proud of their team as they  came from way back to get  into the finals and they can  be sure that the boys will be  doing their best in the    final  'games.   :- -  The final game be ween Wilson Creek and Port Mellon  will, be over by the time you  read this and - no matter . who  the winner is the first game ofV  the finals will be played at  Pender on Sunday afternoon.  The BC Lions had to try  hard but they managed to  blow two. games over the week  end and "I Predicts" face is  red as wellvas his, pocket being  somewhat lighter.  But don't get" down on the  Lions too much as the season  is still young and lots can  happen before November.  They should pick up a win  against the crippled Winnipeg  club.  There is a lot of talk about  a soccer league for the Peninsula and I have it unofficially that the Indian School from  Seehelt will enter a team. We  could possibly get the high  school to .inter one and with  a couple. or more commercial  teams could make a good  league.  Anyone interested can contact me and a meeting could  be called in the near future. "1>  Predict" still thinks Wilson  Creek will take the Osborn  cup.  Lucky 'rod  hooks saSmon  It must have been the lucky  seventh for Ben Morrison of  Vancouver, a guest of Mrs.  Lau's camp. He was fishing  Monday about 11 a.m. off  Camp Byng with desultory  luck when he decided to use  his "lucky" rod which had a  Tom Mack spoon.  Before long he hadva strike,  or what he took to be a strike.  He battled his catch for three-  quarters of an hour and at  last managed tq gaff it. He had  a 30-pouiiid:; salmon, hooked  squarely In the centre of the ���  dorsal fin. Mr. Morrison has  been a guest at the Lau camp  for  seven holiday periods.

The BCAA warns motorists  to be especially careful when  driving near elementary  schools. Grade one students  will be at school for the first  time and are not fully aware  of traffic dangers. Others have  forgotten the safety rules they  learned! last term.  Every year at this time motorists are faced with a sudden change in the appearance  of familiar streets. One day  the streets around local schools  are quiet and traffic moves  along at a normal clip. The  next day is different. School's  open!
