 Published   in   Gibsons, B.C.  Volume J3# Number 34  Aug. 25,_955  PROVINCIAL  LIBRARY  VIC  Provincial Library,  Viet��ria�� B* <?���  Serving the Growing  Sunshine Coast  From  Squamish  to Pender Harbour  This year's Howe Sound  Fair was the most successful  held so far, Roy TMalyea, chairman of the Fair Board "reported at.the close of the fair Saturday m^  ���������' -The "dance which ended the  , two-day event was, the best' at-  ''tiehded so'far andthfe hall was  filled in spitei of the many peo-  7 pie who kept coming and go-  X ingr Thel Mellohaires played  'ipr ^e:dancihg.  ' ;Tbree "7 door prizes are un-  ' claimed and they are:    First,  7 8_*_; second; 432 arid third,  319. These numbers were on  tickets purchased'"Vat the door  irid anyone hofding them can  claim their prizes through Mr.  Malyea! or the seci;etary, Mrs.  ; LeFeuvre, on ReidRoad;  ., The  raffle on the pair    of  blankets was,   won    .by    Bill  Cook, RR1,   Gibsons.  Financially the fair committee reports success but until  final figures are added, the  exact tptal will not be known.  However Mrs. LeFeuvre has  reported the proceeds will be  over last year's figure of $400.  Ehtries were well ahead of  last year and the general attendance was rated at approximately 25 percent higher than  in 1954: There were in all 850  entries more  than  100  above  ; last year. In view of the fact  vegetable and fruit entries  were   lower  due  to  uncertain  , growing weather the fair committee regards the increase a.  being an excellent augury for  next year's fair.  , There were 100 more junior  entries, this year which revealed "a-greater interest by the  younger element. There were  also  many more entries, from  7 outside points which helped to  swell the total. Port Mellon,  Seehelt and Roberts Creek and  :other points added their entries  to the growing, total. Needlework enries were up by 30 and  the: quality was .higher,    too.  ��� There were also more junior  baking entries which speaks  well for the future generation  of cooks.  An indication of the size of  the crowd which attended can  he seen in the fact the fair  committee discovered too late  that insufficient candy was'  for sale> This amount will be  doubled next year.  One OfVthe outstanding parts  of the fair was the first commercial exhibit setup the fair  has ever had. To say the exhibits were an attraction, f is  putting it mildlyV because they  certainly did attract attention  and'judging from the remarks  passed by the commercial exhibitors they will have bigger  and better exhibits next year  if space can be found;  Friday night's attendance  broke* aL records in spite   of  vthe heavy shower and Saturday's .attendance 'while above  that of las\ year did not reach  the in^e^se, noted Von the Friday night.  f7:  Mr. Malyea in opening    rer  Fair , results will be  found on page 6. A story  on the Parish hall will be  found on page 5.  marks at the official opening  of the fair paid tribute to the  former chairman, Norman  Sergeant, who stepped down  to make way for a younger  man in the saddle, and presented him with a gift from the  fair committee.  "Mr. Sargent said he must admit that he could not do the  things regarding the fair that  have been done, .without" the  good work of committee members. He then introduced the  visiting queens of Seehelt,  Gibsons and Port Mellon.  Queen Anne Lang of Seehelt  brought greetings from Seehelt.  Queen Janet Swanson of  Port Mellon brought greetings  from Port Mellon and urged  that all should attend the Port  Mellon Labor Day celebratoins  Pet^aradT  big feature  With some 40 or more  youngsters in the pet and decorated bike and costume parade Saturday afternoon at the  Fair, the event was run off in  good style and without casualties.  There were dogs, goats, cats,  buhnieg;. tdogs 4h"at~Wfcre"- justf -  there for the fun of it and a  mixture of bikes and many little people running continually  to arid fro. However, the mas-,  .ter of ceremonies managed1 to  get the youngsters up the road  to the starting point and lining up,, the parade moved sedately down the North Road v  to the highway and then along  and into the grounds in front  of the old School hall.  When the judges were finished their judging they came  up with the following results:  Pets: 1, 1-itten, Mioria Stroshein; 2, dressed dog, Del Ritchey; 3, rabbit on leash, Hear'  ther Bracewell; 4, white goats  and consolation, grey goat,  Charman Farms.   ' .',���������-"  While the judges were sorting put the prizewinners of  the pet parade a latecomer for  the decorated costumes showed up in the shape of a hula  girl. She^Jobked,quite (entrancing and' one of the/nearby  goats who nudged oyer to investigate liked her: grass skirt  so well he started; eating it.  Next came the judging  f��r  the decorated, bikes and    eos-  tumesr     The judges'    awards  ���were:'- '���:.. - ���'  -Special , prize to Robert  Coates for his decorated bike;  1, Penny'Sromm; 2,! Balloon  Girl, Ruby Strachari and 3,  Mr. and Mrs. Elaine Emerson.  at Seaside. 7  Then Queen Joyce Inglis  said it was a pleasure to pre-.  sent the good wishes of - Gibsons to the Fall 'Fair. She then|  proclaimed the fair officially/  opened. Each of the queens  wasjpresented with a gift from,  the fair  committee.  Aggregate winners of the  fair were Mrs. Jean Wyngaert  in the senior and Eddie Davis;  in the juniors.  Among the exhibits that  were of particular, interest to  those who sought to widen  their knowledge of the topographical features of the Peninsula, the display1 of air photos by L. S. Jackson was really worthwhile. One was able  tp "see from the air" via^'photos what the terrain looked  like and some erroneous ihi-  pressions were more than  likely straightened out. Mr 1  Jackson also had a good number of old-time pictures of the  area, . some of timber' work/  ings arid other of old vessels,  and Indians. One interesting  picture showed timber being  skidded along, a greased road  with ten hprses hauling a long  string, of logs. Today's method is different but growingv  generations can understand  what progress has been mad-  by viewing  such pictures.   /V  An instructive mural that  occupied one side of a wall in'  the school room depicted in  "Account of the , Medieval  World." Close by it was a series of lettered cards outlining  the "Development of Drama"  cand .another^series,. _,q;0; ca_;ds. .  containing various types ' of  poetry: These works by school  pupils were really worthwhile  and the youngsters should be  commended for the work,  done, work which showed ; a  considerable amount of research and study.        ;  For* yet another year, Mr.  Reeves of Roberts Creek put  ori a display of Begonias that  was a pure delight. Pots of  these lovely flowers were  banked row On long row along  one end of the main, hall, over  a hundred of many varieties  and colors. These blooms are  of the' Camelia-flowered variety,1 and are grown frOm seed  hi Mr. Reeve's greenhouse.  Prosecution Will occur .if  any person is found using water for sprinkling purposes,  members of the Village Commission said at Tuesday night  meeting of the commission.  "Unless users of water are  not careful with the low water supply now available a  serious fire hazard could result and the population would  face a serious - situation,"  chairman Drummond said.  The threat of prosecution  was made when various commissioners reported they had  heard of and in some cases  knew of people using water  for sprinkling in*, spite of notices that have been sent to  all users of water in Gibsons.  The water situation was normally on a close basis as regards consumption and with  increased building; all the  time the supply is becoming  shorter than ever, the commissioners argued.  The commission has left itself in the position where an'  emergency meeting could be  called in the event the situation demands that such a  meeting be called.  In the meantime the commission is in the position , to  purchase a standby pump for  about $500 in the event of an  eriiergency arising* from any  breakdown in the present water system.  "We have very little water"  said! cofnmissiorier - Crowhurst  when reporting on the water  situation. "The tank is losing  water at a greater rate than is  normal so there must be some  water sprinkling going on in  spite of the fact notices have  been delivered to users of water to stop sprinkling," he said.  *'. A motion was made by com-  missioneivVGrowhurst that the  proper - Herigirieeririg&e-^icialVvin  Victoria be approached so  someone can come to Gibsons  to check over the situation  and make reasonable recommendations for future   consid  eration. This motion was passed. Commissioner Peterson  said he was of the opinion that  until a greater improvement  district was forriied not much  could be .done townrds guaranteeing a sufficient water supply.  Fred Crowhurst, Commissioner in the Gibsons Village  announces all sprinkling permits are temporarily cancelled, because of the inability of  the pumping systems to keep  up with the heavy, drain being  placed upon them;  Notice will be published as  soon as the condition is remedied.  Mr. Bryant, relieving the  Village Clerk, has been delivering notices as to many holders of permits as pbssible.   <  A bur iing permit, for /a  $4,500 i,,use was passed by  the village, at Tuesday night's  meeting: The permit was tafev  en out in the names of Euphe- -  mia, John and Henry Corlefe  and will be erected in ite  block next to the firehall.  It will be a five-room, one-  storey construction 20 by 2^  with a 12 by 12 annex.  Accounts totalling $175.72  were ordered paid and <aS  this amount $132,62 was fc_?  roads work.  Fire siren to sound  for Gibson fires only  In connection with fire  calls outside the village, com-  rmissioner Ballentine moved  that after Aug. 31 the phone  office be instructed not to  turn on the fire alarm unless  the fire is within the municipal boundaries of the village  proper. This motion was passed.  This is the result of previous  announcement by the commission that the fire department  will not respond1 to fire calls  outside the village after midnight of August 31..  So far there is only one response to the movement for a  greater water arid fire protection area and that has come  from Soames Point which has.  appointed a committee to further the project.  As the matter now stands  the; fire department after Aug.  31 will not be allowed to go  outside the village to fight _.  fire unless authorized by =m  member of the village core*  mission.  ii,  Sunday School  party Thursday  V The scholars and teachers of  the United Church Sunday  School will meet in the church  hall on Thursday evening for  a supper party at six o'clock.  No .special invitations will be  sent. Ail the children who  have been attending the school  are invited. The teachers are  asked to tryN to get in touch  with their classes; for this  event. There is nothing to  bring. Everything will be provided.  To dedicate  church gifts  A special feature of the  morning service at the United'  Churfh August 28 will Hbe the  presentation and dedication of  gifts of memorial furnishings.  These consist of two platform  or chancel chairs and a hymn  board. These are in solid oak  designed and finished to  match th6 Communion Table  and font already installed.  These new pieces are the  gift of Mrs. James Beaton of  Go^yer Point in memory of  her husband, the -late James  Beaton. This announcement is  made so that friends of the  family in the neighborhood  may be present at the service.  rower jwe  is  extended  Slashing and digging on the  Twin Creeks power line extension has been completed as  far as Dolmages Camp, district  manager Steve Howlett reports, . and slashing has been  completed into Williamsons  Landing. Delivery of poles has  started along this stretch.  Seven local men are em-,  ployed on this section, which  is expected to be . completed  shortly.  The Pender Harbour extension has been slashed as far  as Secret Cove, where a prefabricated camp "has, been set  up for the six men employed  Nearly all these are local men,  also.  Digging has been complete  for this distance, and pole delivery has been started.  Progress is quite satisfactory, Mr. Howlett continues,  and he hopes for an early  completion of this extension.  Red Cross  kelps family  The home of Gordon Philips, Pratt road, was destroyed  by fire Saturday afternoon.  The alarm was sounded 7 fa-  Gibsons about 5.30 p.m. ariS.  the fire department responded  immediately. '  Mr. Phillips, who was alone  in the house at the time n.a_v-  aged to save a television set.  a cedar chest filled with clothing and a kitchen buffet. . ;*  The Red Cross came quickly  to the,rescue of the Phillips  family with a complete supply  of bedding for three beds, aril,  -the Red7*Crbs_w_ecretary,',;.

Anne's Flower Shop from  Seehelt was a wonderful dis  play of blooms and potted  plants, with a few rare and  beautiful   orchids   shown   by  * Mrs. Kurluk. She also had a  good selection of planters, vases  and   ornaments   on exhibi-  . tion.

Port Mellon pulp and paper  had a display arranged show-  - ing the many    steps    through  which wood goes to make pulp  ,  and finally, paper.

At the main hall, there was  a display under canvas by the  Seehelt Automotive Service of  two kinds of power saws,  Homeljte/and Disston, in various sizes and models. They  also, ;on Saturday, had Dodge  cars ��n the grounds, to be  seen by all interested.  .

The 1955 fair should spur them  towards a bigger and better fair next year.  By "bigger and better" >it is not intended -that the  fair committee should round up all the exhibits they can,  willy-nilly. The fair can be bigger and better in other directions. ' ' ...-:���-   x    ���  For example commercial exhibits should be under  one roof and not scattered. This shear's exhibits were well  done and with local tradesmen getting wider experience in  such ventures the commercial exhibits can become. one of  the fair's great assets. It is known now that there 'will be  more commercial exhibits next year than this year.  There are many other problems facing the fair committee and the members of the committee know them only  too well. It could be' that .the time to :do. something about  these problems should be now and not next August when  the fair will be held.  There is one thing the fair executive ; should have  next year and that is a place in the village where anyone  could go during a ten-day period'before the fair and obtain information. Entry''forms could also��� < be��� channelled  ���through this place. All it needs is desk space in some shop  with someone well-posted on fair information" in the chair.  The Coast News would be willing to help out as regards  the desk and space.  There should be special thanks to Roy Malyea and  Mrs. M. Lefevre, for their excellent work in putting this  . year's fair across. Mr. Malyea is chairman of the fair committee and Mrs. LeFeuvre the efficient and very active secretary. There should also be thanks to the many helpers  who stuck to their guns and completed their duties.     ���  Howe Sound Fair is attracting outsiders���' meaning  ��� people from points'other than the Peninsula.    Their comments on the fair were all commendatory and more than  . one pf them thought that under the circumstances the fair  committee had to operate, it did an excellent job.  There should-be special mention of the co-operation  offered by the School Board which made available the Elementary school grounds and space in the school building for  the fair. Without this' space the fair committee would have  had rather tough going.  It is up to ithe people of this area to throw their support  behind the Fair Committee to assist it in obtaining proper  Quarters for next year's fair, which will be bigger than  that held this year. An active���with deliberate accent on  the word active���-committee should be formed to get this  movement underway. How soon can it be in operation?  agistrale  scusses  Knotheads and  Editor: How short-sighted  can so many people be! The  residents or taxpayers of Hopkins, Granthams, Gower Point  and other people just outside  the Gibsons boundary are certainly, "knotheads" for my  money.  I am a taxpayer , towards  Gower Point way���and I Want  Fire Protection!! What can I  do to' get it? ��� Nothing!!  Gibsons VFD will not protect me personally. If I break  into the firehall to, get a fire-  truck to protect my home ���  or ask the volunteers to take  the trucks out here, we'll all  be charged for stealing Village  Property and taking it outside Gibsons.  I agree with the commissioners that if equipment is to be  taken outside Gibsons ' everyT  body should pay for it.  I would rather pay $5 per  year in taxes to the Village  and save my property, home  and belongings���than $15 extra on my insurance per year  and lose my home, etc., and  a loss on insurance.  What happened to this proposed Fire Improvement  Scheme? It went "flop" because no individuals would  band together, or no group or  organization would undertake  the menial task of responsibility to start it.  The Gibsons Volunteer Fire  Department members who  tried to offer their assistance  have been denied a-chance to-  even help since no one would  carry the ball.  Remember these volunteers  are only firemen to man the  equipment and vehicles, and  do not own the equipment,  and have no "right" to take  it out of the village.  They have raised funds for  equipment etc.,, to serve you  and give you more help. They  even had to give you an idea  whereby you could have had  fire protection from Gibsons  to outsmart the commissioners���but no, you "knot heads"  will not even take it up���even  when they offered their assistance.  Go    ahead    and    let    your  vhomes and lives be jeopardized���but don't call on me to  help! You've had your chance,  row take what's coming.  Gibsons can count me in on  their Fire Protection Scheme  and I hope I can get "individual" protection just so I can  sit back and laugh (no��� feel  sorry) for you.

STABLE  INDUSTRY  The forest industry of British Columbia had its beginnings during the period 1778  to 1788. The industry, at first,  was concerned chiefly with  spars for ships. Construction  on the first sawmill ever  erected in what is now British Columbia commenced in  January, 1848. The site chosen  was Millstream at the head of  Esquimalt Harbour and .on November 24, 1848 the first lumber was sawn. Since, that time  the lumber industry in British  Columbia has grown so that  today it is the m6st important  industry in the province and  produces over half the Can-  adiari production of lumber.  The Canadian Cancer Society spent $460,000 on research;  and  related    projects    during1  1953. '"���     i  Editor: I have read with  considerable interest your editorial in your issue of Aug! 11  because I was appointed a justice of the peace in 1946 and  a stipendary magistrate in  1952. The latter appointment  still stands.  While there were no roads  where I formerly lived I did!  have a traffic case or two to  deal with by way of transfer  from another magistrate. Since  ' moving to Roberts Creek I  have gone over the Motor Vehicles Act and amendments  and it would appear to be that  the legislators haye done a  very fine job in enacting laws  to govern this situation. - A  cursory glance at the amendments made by the 1955 sitting of the house shows that  the attorney-general and. his  department are fully alive to  the situation..  Legislators enact laws;' it is  ��� the duty of the courts to interpret them:: It- would appear  quite pl^in that that is where  the fault lies. The magistrates'  courts are the ones' that deal .  w^ththese offendes; is the  court always alive to the seriousness of the-cases?     ���  During the nine years that  I have been either a J.P.    or  magistrate I*never hesitated to.  hand out the maximum    sentence for a first offense if   T  thought the evidence    submitted to my court called for it,  even though I have heard magistrates   claim  that   a . maximum fine can not be imposed*  in  a fir_-: offence." ,:I_el    "the  penalty fit the crime"   should  be the motto.    I  never had a  jcase appealed yet. On the ether hand I have been thanked  by more than one person that  I have fined for the way they  were treated in my court.  The teeth are already in the. 7,  laws, and they are not false  teeth either.

COper  Stipendiary Magistrate.  An honor  for a Lady  ' Mrs. Mortimer of Roberts  Creek, known to the Navy  boys as "Mcim" during the  war, was honored on Saturday  August 13, at a surprise gathering' aboard the _jIMS Superb  at Naden Harbour.    ���  Mrs.' Mortimer received an  invitation to visit friends in  Vancouver, and to meet past  frends from Edmonton. In the  afternoon, at their request,  she laid a wreath at the cenotaph in honor of the 'war dead  of the Navy, arid from there  she was escorted to the ship  Superb. She was piped aboard  and was met by Commander  Manning of HMS Nonesuch,  the Navy's training ship in.  Edmonton, as well as six padres she had.known; and the  officers epinmanding other  vessels then in harbour.  In this ceremony, Mrs. Mortimer'was. presented by Commander Manning with a sper  cial Navy medal, The Navy  Moon of Canada. She was also  given a lovely brooch, a  crown and anchor and laurel  leaves; sh*e also received a  beautiful dinner ring set with  black Alaska diamond, also a  miniaturel ship's wheel and  hell.  ..;- Gathered aboard to watch  the ceremony and to see the  V presentation were 20 couples,  all friends, who had come out  from Edmonton especially for  the occasion,    '  Mrs. Mortimer, who recently came    to; Roberts    Creek,  was known to Navy boys    in  Edmonton during the ^ war as  a Navy Mom, because, of.  her  work with and for the   young.  men who   were' away   from  home and in barracks, in training,  or sometimes on  -leave.  She was    immensely   pleased  and proud, but   was    totally  surprised by the honor    paid  her as a "Navy Mom of   Canada."  SIMPLE MEN  The collection of caulked  boots and wet socks in a heap  on the floor that on occasion  greet us here at this, house in  the dawn when there has been  some nocturnal activity, such  as pushing logs around the  booming ground, brings to  my mind several pictures out  of the past and of similar circumstance of which I was a  part.  The" boots and socks and the  night' water work have not  changed ' but the conditions  certainly have. For instance,  ' the boots at $30 or thereabouts  My recollection of long ago  boots was $5.50 and good woolly socks for 50 cents a pair  or less. *  It is not this change that  intrigues me so much: it ii the  callous indifference to .their,  own comfort or any preparatory measures for th-2 next  day. One of rur lady, for instance left his boots ouiside  and down comes the rain and  after pour:"<> the water, out,  trie boots -are forced on ,smn1  much vocal and foul com:  ment on' the misery of things.

The new order of waste and  disarray would not have suited Oscar in any way shape or  form. He was a master in the  art of precaution and preparedness. His expert method of  arranging - a tobacco can as a  cuspidor for the reception of  snoose juice in the intervals  of wakefulness during the  night was unique and: impressive.'  The    more    or    less    fusty  shacks of long ago whereiri  we slept were also the only  place to dry clothes. As a  rule each inmate had a portion of the area, above the  heater to hang up things and  this was utilized economically  by a wooden frame shaped  like the cross of Lorraine with  a baling wire hook to hang it  to the rafters. It was comforting somewhat to pull-on soft  warrri" boots and a dry warm  shirt that ^had been subject to  a good draught of hot air from  ai red hot stove lit by the. bull-  cook earlierV"  No crashing triangle would  annoy Oscar. He, was always  up before the first bell and  the routine of his rising never  altered, Sunday notwithstanding, and he. was always in the-  vanguard for breakfast at the  cookhouse where his procedure was rigid in formality and  sparing in motion.  In those days before wheeled vehicles became evident it  was a study in motion to see  a crew strung out along the  fore and aft road heading for  the scene of operations with  Oscar in the lead as usual and  packing a sharp saw in the  prescribed manner and well  clear of the rest of us. Except  for the ordinary noise of travel there would be a minimum of talk and mest of this  came from the rigging crew  who were, as a rule of an age  where ribaldry and raffish  conversation were not considered beneath their dignity. .  Where the fallers branched  off or beyond the yarding  area, there would be a well  defined trail into the standing  timber and on arrival Oscar  would go into operation without further ado. If he had a  cut started he would warm up  on that or brush out to next  cut and after a short interval  he would take off his top shirt..

The Church grew as  persecutions increased in severity.  -��� Courage is a virtue which  people of every nation understand. There may be difficulty  over controversial ��� points of  view, but there is no doubt  about courage; as there was  none on the part of the Roman  soldier who said at the crucifixion of Jesus: "Surely this  was a good man." It-was said  of one noble man: "Nothing  became hirri better than the  ''manner of his dying."  *      *'     * '.-������'  X Among the earliest Christian martyrs was Polycarp,  who was born of Christian  parents, about the year 70 A.D.  '������ He was a disciple of St. John  and loved to repeat his words  as he remembered them.'Polycarp himself had a follower  named Ireriaeus, and it is from  him we learn the facts about  Polycarp's martyrdom.  At the great Pagan festivals  feelings against Christians  were frequently aroused. In  the city of Smyrna, where the  aged Polycarp was leader of  the loyal band of Christ's followers, eleven Christians were  thrown to the wild beasts during' the annual games. A few,  not many; recanted when they  were faced with death; the  courage of others made a  deep impression upon ihe multitudes who demanded their  death I Orie brave young man  named Germanicus, so far  from being unnerved,- dragged  the reluctant lion to him: and  this further excited the populace iri its lust for blood.  *      * ���   *  The savage mobs called for  Polycarp; now 86 years of age  and.;.-. still leader of the church  at Smyrna. His friends: led him  away from the city to a; little  farm where he passed' the  time in prayer. His pursuers  went out as if against a thief.  Polycairp could have escaped;  but he refused saying: - "The  will of the Lord be done."  He was in an upper    room  when they arrived and he  went down arid talked with  them. While they marvelled at  his courage and great age he  quietly talked to them and had  food and drink set before  them. His. request to be allowed to pray was granted.' For  7 two hours he prayed earnestly remembering all that ever  had dealings with him includ  ing those who had come to arrest him. Even these men  were deeply touched by his  brave gentle spirit arid regretted that it had fallen to  them to assail so good a man.  ������.*������*      *-"      ���  ;:.   ���  He was led back to Smyrna  where excited crowds awaited  his arrival. The high sheriff  and others pleaded with him  to. renounce Christ and declare: "Caesar is Lord." At  first he made no answer but  when they persisted he said:  "I do not intend to- do as you  advise me." This ��sp angered  them, that they threw him  from their carriage and bruised his shins. He was then  brought into the s t a d. i"u m  where a vast crovyd shouted:  'Polycarp is taken."  The proconsul gave him a  last chance. "You are a very  old man," he said, "and a few  wPrds can save your life. Recant and your life will be  spared. Curse Christ and I  will set ypu free." It was then  that the aged mail ' uttered  words which have been repeated for eighteen centuries:  "Eighty and six years have I  served Him, arid He has never  done me wrong; how can I  blaspheme my- King and. Savior?" ^They^hpund him without nailing7*fiim, and while the  fire was* heihg; prepared ' beneath him heVprayed: 'I thank  Thee, l^ord, that Thou didst  deein; me'- worthy of this day  and; Sour, that I should /takeV  my part'among the "numbers  of the^martyrs in the cup of v  Thy Christ to the resurrection  of life eternalV'  The flames made a sort of  arch around hirii;'. and for a'  while his body was not scorch-  edV'Ttus angered the 'pagan  spectators who demanded that  a slaughterer end his life by a  dagger thrust.

The Sunshine    Coast    lived;  up to  its reputation for    sunshine, the day being one of the  warmest of the summer.  Final plans for the fall fair  were discussed:. It was also  voted to donate the proceeds  of the.meeting to the VON.  Mrs. Gosden gave, a most interesting paper, ' choosing fOr  her subject The Emancipation  of Women*.  Tracing her subject back  through the centuries she told  of the great struggle women  endured in different countries  to obtain the freedom,to* determine their own lives.

She  also pointed out, that the Women's Institutes of Canada did  much in working toward the  vote for women.  The women of Ontario were  granted the franchise in 1917,  Manitoba in 1916, followed by  Saskatchewan, Alberta . and  B.C. shortly afterwards.  After much criticism and  many attacks the bill was  passed by the Dominion Government giving the vote to the  women of Canada. From 1918  to 1940 the women of Quebec  endured the anomaly of participating in the federal elections, while/they were forced  to keep silent on provincial affairs.  Mrs. Gosden concluded by  saying that customs die slowly, and women are not yet  much in evidence in what the  writer Pearl Buck describes  as the "Engine Room" of the  nations.      .  A hearty vote of thanks -was  given the speak"er.  The next meeting will be: at  Mrs. Winn's; when Mrs. Tyson will give the history of  Howe Sound Women's Institute through its 29 years of  activity in the community.

V  LET'S EAT-  The week-end meals at my  country home are a co-opera-'  Vtive venture, with everyone-'  contributing a little work in  preparing the foods. I must  say this plan has evoked many  successful meals and also plenty of surprises.  Came the day when four extra guests arrived at dinner -  time and there was only  enough chicken a la king for  six.

He could critically, survey  the 7 variety of cans of condensed soups in the storage  cupboard, select two different  kinds, open and mix them in a  .saucepan; add the right- can  measures of water, milk or  tomato juice, and happily stir  until they boiled. .'  Then came the tasting.

For the price  o*f a can or two of paint you  can have a whole new surface  in a design of your own choice.  First, give the linoleum a  good scrubbing with soap and  water, followed by a onceover with turpentine to remove every ' trace of wax.  Then choose a good quality  enamel or floor paint and apply one or more  coats.  But don't stop here. When,  the paint is dry, create a pattern in a contrasting color.  Stippled effects are attractive  and easy to achieve. Just dip  a piece of ordinary household  sponge in a shallow pan of  paint and dab on the floor.  White on black, for example,  gives a marble-like look to the  floor.  A spatter finish is equally  effective, but" a little more  care is required. The spatters  are made by striking a paint-,  filled brush against a stick  held in the other hand. Size of  the spatters varies- according  to the amount of paint in the  brush and the t distance between brush and floor. For a  gay effect use several colors,  but take careful aim or you'll  have spattered walls, too. Finally, a coat or two of varnish  will protect your new floor  surface.  *      *      *  A boon to homeowners is a  permanent lawn- sr.rinkler kit.  The compact unit consists of  10.0 feet of flexible polythene  pipe that hooks onto the water tap. The remainder of the  pipe is buried: under the lawn  with the sprinkler heads protruding just to the surface so  they won't hinder mowing.  One person, equipped with  knife, pliers and spade, can install the underground system  in no time at all. The flexible  pipe bends easily around trees  and posts and it won't rust,  rot or corrode. One of these  sprinkler kits keeps 2,400  square feet of lawn fresh and  green.  *      *      *.  Plants, like people, suffer  'from thirst during the warm  summer months. In fact, more  plants die through lack of proper watering than anything \  else. A plant needs to be watered, whenever the soil is dry  but don't wait until, it is bone  dry or growth may be seriously retarded. If the earth crumbles, - between your fingers it's  a good sign that the plant  needs  a sprinkling.  On the other hand, plants  don't like wet feet. Be sure  there's a hole in the bottom of  the pot' or allow drainage" or  the roots will rot.  A good way to keep plants  moist while you're on vacation  is to water them, put each pot  in a polythene grocery bag  and tie the top of the bag  around the stem of the plant.  This leaves the flowers and  leaves free to breathe while  the ; polythene    bag      retains  moisture in the soil.  *      *      *  A happy union of wax and  polythene resin is producing  more attractive and better protected food packages these  days.  The old-style wax coating on  paper and cardboard wraps  made the colors dull and the  printing hard to read. Now, as  little as three percent polythene resin added to the wax  gives an attractive gloss to the  wrap and a harder surface  that shows up printed inks in  all their brilliance.  Canada was one of the first  countries to use polythene-  wax blends for , packaging.  First used in bread wrappers,  it is now* being applied to cartons containing butter, margarine, ice cream, milk and  frozen foods. Besides adding  eye appeal, the blended coating cuts down grease-penetration and leaking.

The following day  Sunday. Port Mellon visits North Vancouver for a  double header.  BY   CHUCK  TOMPKINS  Port Mellon made sure it  would make the district playoffs in North Vancouver by  swamping the team from Squamish  27-3 on Sunday.  The Squamish team was not  in the same league as the Port  Mellon boys and it is my opinion, that any team in our  League could beat them.  The big blows for Port Mellon were home runs by Bob  Jack and Ted Turner.  The finals start in North  Vancouver this week-end and  we still may have seme games  up here so keep in touch with  Mr. Roberts or-myself-for the  final details.  If the boys from Port Mellon have to go.to town on Sunday they will be able to use  all the support they can get  so let as many as can- follow  them in and give the moral  support they will need. It is  rumored that they will play  the dangerous North Shore  Firemen but as yet this is not  certain.  In the Osborn cup play-offs  Pender edged out the Firemen  5-4 last Thursday to even, their  series at one game each with  the third and deciding game  to be played in Gibsons sometime this week-end so keep in  . touch with your 'team managers for the date.  Wilson Creek downed Port  Mellon 5-2 in. the first game  of their series with the second  game being played Wednesday  night at Wilson Creek. ""  The reason for all the mix-  ups. in play-off dates is unavoidable as Vthe teams from  other,-leagues have different  play-off dates than we do, and  then it. ha$ to: ga through the  BCASA in town and sometimes  they are not as prompt as they  could be. ':  The BC Lions won their  first league game by defeating  Calgary 14-8 on Monday night  to get a good start in the WIFU  race. And -who knows which  will be the Grey Cup team; do  you,   Mr.. Reichelt? :  I understand "Chops' Mops"  are perfectly willing to take  on the shrinking Kiwanis team  on Jan. 1, 1956, even if they  have to wear snowshoes.  "I Predict" says: Lions over  Eskimos Saturday night.  A novel way of inviting  guests to a "Castaway Party"  was devised by Mr. and Mrs.  W. Dix. A few days before the  event which took place Saturday evening August 20, guests  found bottles, containing invitations in rhyme, floating in  front of their cottages.  A fleet of boats lit by torches and garlanded with flowers  picked up the guests and bore  them to the TDix home. The  patio and porches were ablaze  with lightsjVVwhere the hosts  greeted thehV guests.  Mr. H. Merilees dressed as  an African chief, ring in nose,  a shield and spears, was an  outstanding figure. Chris Dal-  ton was a realistic Robinson  Crusoe with his umbrella ���  while Mrs. Dalton was an attractive Hula girl in a grass  skirt, with strings of shells  around ankles and wristss.  The MacAllisters' costumes  were original -���maples leaves,  sewn on their swim suits. The  Johnny Simpsons were South  Sea Islanders, Mrs. George  Simpson dainty in a sarong.  Mr. Nelson Darling was a  Lascar, Mr. * Chris Taylor the  engineer of the Inchcliffe  Castle, with handlebar mustache and strong Scotch burr.  Bruce Robinson in rose spattered rompers, Mrs. J. Harrison an Indian princess, and:  the S. Cromies in tatters, H.  E. Hunt in ragged clothing  with a monkey perched on his  shoulder were just a few of  the costumes    worn  A wonderful smorgasbord  and punch concluded the party. Invited .guests were" Mr.  and Mrs. J. Harrison, Mr. and  Mrs. Hullah, Mr. and Mrs.  Sam Cromie, Mr. and Mrs. J.  Simpson, Mr. and Mrs- G.  Simpson, Mr. and Mrs. C.  Lunn, Mr., and 'Mrs. H. E.

The voting be-  iag as close as it was proves  there are many popular players in the league. I would also  like to thank Mr. Vince Prewar for giving the award and  the interest he has shown in  the League.  Norman MacKay.  Two Cub packs  at Camp Byng  Wolf Packs 1 and 2 of the  Gbsons Cubs had a wonderful  day at Camp Byng on Sunday  last, when with Cubmaster Mr.  Fulton%nd their leaders, they  enjoyed all the swimming and  games, ate in the Scout dining  room, and toured the whole  camp.  Mr. and Mrs. Merilees and  their son Rill were hosts to1  the boys, and showed the Cubs  the day of their lives.  All the buildings and the  chapel were visited and their  histories told. The various  groups of Scouts who had bult  them were discussed.  Mrs. Smales, Lloyd Bingley,  John andl Carmen Robinson,  with Scouts Winston Robinson  ���and Eddy Anderson accompanied the Cubs. Mr. G. Ayles,  N. Coates and Msr. A. Blain  provided transportation for  the boys, and were thanked  for their kindness.  This Sunday trip completed  the summer's activities, which  included a bean feed, at Mr.  and Mrs. Kruse's, a hike up  the Enemark Loging road, and  a wiener roast at Mrs. Smale's.  The Cubs express their  thanks for . transportation to  various events,' and for meals  provided and prepared, to Mr.  and Mrs. Blain, JMrs. Ed Johnson, Mrs. J. Skidmore, Mr.  Mayson, Mrs. Ed Feidler and  Mrs. Kruse, Mr. Weinhandle,  and all the Scouts and leaders  who assisted in the summer's  events.

Ove* 30 young folks gathered to have a wonderful time  playing original games: which  Mrs. Robilliard brings out of  "thin air" at the drop of a hat.  An amusing menu titled  Kiondyke Kate's Barroom  Menu caused a hearty laugh.  They had to order from" an  assortment of queerly-riamed  dishes, and take their chances,  paying the service charge of a  certain number of "gold^ hug-  gets"  (beans).  Some of the items on said  menu included the following  tasty dishes: Alaskan seal (sardines); a cocktail was a minute  quare of dry * bread topped  with a feather; Sophie Smith's  Pickup (coffee); Northern.  : Lights was tiny blobs of jello  in different flavors; Alaskan  Mud was chocolate cake, and  so on.  Some trepidation was shown  en a few of the faces until it  was explained the real food  was being served next door,  at the home of Mr. and. Mrs.  B. Salter. Mrs. T. Chambers,  Mrs. R. Laycock also helped  with the arrangements for  this undertaking.  Mrs. Robilliard was high in  her praise of all the young  people who attended the party. She has never met a nicer,  more polite group of youngsters, she said, and will consider it a privilege to entertain them at, any time in, the  future.
