 Published   in   Gibsons.  B.C.  Volume 10. Number 5  February 2,    1956.  Provincial Library*  Serving the  Growing  ��� Sunshine Coast  From   Squamish  to Pender Harbour  Uhdier a government increase  Gibsons will receive . about  $1;440 more than last year on  the government municipal  grant.  Last year the sum received  was $10,108 and Premier Bennett in his budget speech  made in the legislature at Victoria Wednesday announced  the grant would ^e increased  for municipalities and the increase Vwouldl amount to $2 per  head in Gibsons.        V       '7  *3Chis grant is; based on the  1951 federal census. The population for. Gibsons  was    then  ext move  -is,._....,  7 Deadline for a protest over  the S^cheltVvote; for incorporation-having passed -Without  any,* being lodged with government .officials makes, the vote  official, members of the Seehelt Incorporation committee  report.  Beyond that point the committee cannot go until further  instructions have been received  from Victoria as to the   next  step."  Jack Mayne,^ returning offi-  .cer says he has'received no  notification of a complaiot following -the vote, (-either from  anyone Iri Sechelt or from government officials.  Sechelt Inccporation committee "members are now awaiting official word" from .Victoria,  722. Today it is mere than  likely beyond the 1,000 mark  or close to it V Under the municipal grant the municipality  gets now $16 per person in  place of $14 last year.  Robert Burns village, clerk,  welcomed the increase in the  grant and pointed. out that  this increase will in part offset  increased costs due to the new  municipal setup the government has placed on municipalities. Other uncontrollable  costs have als0 had their influence on the govenment's  action owing to labour and  material costs taking a swing  upwards.  t Here is part of Mr. Bennett's  budget speech in the legislature   ' ,-N ' ��� ;  The substantial increase announced in the grants in aid  of i local ' government means  $16 instead of $14 will now'be  paid to municipalities with a  population up'.to, but not exceeding 3,500-persons; $,12 in-  stead^of $9 will be paid for  the number of persons in excess of "3,500, up to 8,000 inclusive; $8 instead of $5 will  be paid for the number of persons in excess of 8,000' but not  in excess of 50,000; and, finally. $6.50 per capita instead  of $4.20 for the number of-persons in excess of 50,000.  This means that $9,400,000  is anticipated to be "spent en  these grants during. the next  fiscal year, or* $2,138,000 more  than during the current year.  Mr. Bennett estimated that  during 1956/57 $43,829,000  would be paid by way of direct and' indirect grants    and  .that this was $5,713;000 more;  ���' than the assistance extended'  during the current year.' He  also announced an uncenditiohy.  al guarentee with respect tb;  market borrowings V by im-7  provement districts. ,7  The  minister  announced    aV  reduction  in   the    amusement  tax equal to one-third and the.  proposal to  earmark   all    the  revenues   accruing from     this  tax to hospital construction.  Reference was made to' regulatory amendments under the  Social Services act exenipting  meals under $1.01, whether  sold separately or as part of"  a multiple sale of meals; and,  the abatement. by tone-half of  the tax levy on.machinery or  taxable property used specif--,  ically for gas, oil or mining  exploratory work.      ���  The minister's address; gave  an outline of. the Pacific Great'  Eastern Railway extensions  both to the south and north.  The Vancouver extension ,' 16 .  anticipated.to be completed by  June 6f- 1956 at the original  estimated cost of $10,500,000.  The northern' extension is in  progress, and construction;contracts amounting to , some $9,-  800,000 have been Yet to cover tlie construction of the railway's right of,way ' to 'mile  145'north of iPrince "George.  The budget.Address revealed  that economic actiyity during  1955 surpassed all ..previous  records and that revenue returns reflected that activity.  Furthermore, that future prospects warranted the assumption that 1956 would prove still  better.  The first United Nations Postal Administration stamp to be issued  ;in i.956 will be in honor of the.

Shoal Bay area for logging  booms continues to be a matter of negotiation.  A letter from E.W. Bassett.,  deputy minister of Lands and  Forests addressed in the first  instance to Mr. F.J. Holland,  secretary of the loggers association; copies of which were sent  to the Village Commission and  others interested, maintains  that until the area involved  has been zoned formally 7 by  the Village Commission, the  government cahnct act on the  application. ; ���"���'������ V  Here is a copy of the "letter  "Reference" is made t0 your  letter of July 30th last, being  application for renewal of  Land Use Permit No. 156 m  the name of Gibsons Resident  Loggers' Association for .a  further period of one year.  from the expiry date of said  permit,( viz.; Aug. 30,   1955.  "In this  connection    I    am  directed t0'V advise    that,   the.  Honorable .the 7 -Minister    has  now made r a full :������ review    of -  all reports of this, case, includ  ing findings of the Land Commissioner as a. result of a hear-  . ing held by hihi 7:at Gibsons  on Nov. 7 last in .accordance  with section 141 of the "Land  Act" andi various other- independent submissions and petitions received directly by the  Minister.  Considered also is the fact  that the area involved in the  application-, while under jurisdiction of the Crown Provincial for. administrative, purposes, is within the municipal  boundaries 'of the Corporation  of the Village of Gibsons Landing, and such fact wasVbrought  formally to the attention ��� of  -the Minister by letter dated  Sept. 21, 1955, addressed to  him by the Board of Commissioners of the Village.  7. It is also noted that the cor-  7 poration, under its .powers,  has the prerogative .'-. through  bylaw 'to delineate zoning as  between residential andi ;qther  uses for any and all' lands in  its corporate boundaries; and  that portion of the Village embodying the area of the1 current ���;  application has not been so  zoned.  ...In. the ..light of the above related and all;other pertinent  circumstances, it is the decision of the7 Honorable1 the Minister that the department is  not in a position to consider  your application pending formal zoning by the Corporation  of the area involved. If and  when sucli zoning is affected,  ah application may be considered on its particular merits in  light of zoning properly established for the area. '  E.W. Bassett,  ���  Deputy Minister.  The letter when read at  the last Village Commission  meeting drew comment from  various members as to tlie  reason why the department after allowing the lease to be  operative previously without'  worrying about, zoning should  at this time become interested in whether the area is  zoned.        . *V  According to remarks passed at the meeting the entire  land area of the village is  zoned andi the zoning of water  areas by a municipality is regarded  as  doubtful.  To allowymore people to  spend more time taking in the  1956 Sunshine Coast Fall Fair  this year the event will last.  three days instead of the usual two.   '"   '    "V-"'"' .''  It will open at 7 p.m. Aug  23 and remain open to 10 p,m.  that night. On Aug. 24 it will  Open at 10 a.m.'and remain  open1 to 10 p.m. then on Sat.,  Aug. 25 it, wUl be open from  10 a.m. to 5- p.m. with a dance  to follow.  This, move was discussed  last Friday night at a meeting  of the Fair Committee in the  Parish Hall.-If was decided  owing to complaints of the  shortness of the available  hours that more time woud be  alloted. This resulted in an  earlier opening with judging  to take place on the Thursday  afternoon instead of on the  Friday afternoon.  It was also decided to change  the name of the fair from the  Howe Sound Fall Fair to the  Sunshine Coast Fall Fair.. This  was due because of the interest being shown by outside  points not actually in the  Howe Sound area, such as Se-  cheit and other places up  coast. Mover of the motion  to change the name was Jack  . Fitchett and the seconder, Mr.  Little. ."���"'',���'';  It was also felt the chairman should have someone to  fill in for him in the event he  should have-to be away jso Mr.  Little was elected to the post  qf vice-chairman.  Chairman of the meeting was  Roy Malyea, Rae Hruse attended as a delegate from the Kiwanis Club.  The problem cf forming a  building fund was discussed  and one result was through a  motion proposed  by Mr.    Le-  feuvere that all committee and  executive members be assessed  $1. a'year each to be put in. a  building fund. It was suggested members of the committee  do like other organization  members and hold: social  events to collect money- for  the building fund.  The financial statement of  the Fair Committee as audited  by Robert Burns, Village clerk,  revealed total receipts for the  year were $1,302.99 and after  paying all bills and expenses  there was $568.01 in the bank  and cash on hand. Assets totaled $733.  Two delegates were chosen  to attend the B.C. Fairs Association annual meeting on dates  to be arranged. They were  Mr. Malyea and Mrs. J. Fitchett.  Next meeting v/ill be a pot-  luck supper in the Parish Hall  Sat. Feb. 18 starting at 7 p.m.  y More than;40 parents heard  tfierpanel discussion on, report  clrds, at the Elphinstone PTA  nieetirig in Gibsons last week.  >s Mrs. Glassford and Mrs.  Rankin, of the high- school  teaching gbaft, and Jack Warn  as a. parent, carried on a spirited' discussion of. the points  and purpc��es of the left .side  qjj the .report card.  > This part of the report card  deals with the overall grading  of the student and deals with  his general school attitude his  school-citizenship -and his general' standing. -  * The meaning of * the letters  and the type of comments  were given and an explanation  pt'the comments by the teachers. The methods of recording by duplicate cards was*  explained.  lTTj>e main portion of the'pan-  ei^tlme ^was 'Jbatfgn. by- T^rs-  Rankin and* Mrs! * Glassford in  outlining in some detail how  .ratings were determined from  a composite cf all the teachers' individual ratings for  each pupil to indicate development by the pupil in proportion  to  apparent capacity.  Each . pupil did not necessarily receive an equal rating  from each teacher, since factors of personality, class subject and degree of interest in  "it are subject to variation in  both teacher  and  student.,  It was pointed out that on  occasions where teachers might  be in doubt concerning certain  ratings, recourse had been to  a class rating wherein each  student rated all the others in  the class. Subsequent comparison had indicated a more severe rating by the students  themselves  than  by the staff.  The staff recognized there  were certain inherent shortcomings in the procedure but  it represents an honest effort  subject to errors cf human  judgment, to assess a student's general attitude to responsibilities and to .fellow  students in their social contacts. As such it was a valuable indicator t0 both teacher  and parent.  Mr. Trueman principal of  the high school gave a resume  of the work done at the" curriculum conference in Toronto  child  chokes  Scott the 16-month ,old son  of Mr. and Mrs. Einar Gallier  of Port Mellon, died when he  choked on food, on Saturday,  Jan. 28. Dr. Inglis of Gibsons  was called, but the - child was  dead when he reached the  Port Mellon First Aid station,'  t0 which he had been taken.  A coroner's jury was held  Monday afternoon. Dr. Mc-  Coll's verdict was "Death due  to asphyxiation, caused by a  foreign body lodged in the  throat".  Funeral service was held  Wednesday at the Chapman  Funeral Home Vancouver, the  Rev. Higgs officiating. .Burial  was in the Babyland section  of the Forest Lawn cemetary.  which- he had- "attended. He  made some interesting ��� comparisons between the work of  the  East and West.  He referred to the three-  stream curriculum now being  used in , Hamilton Ont. which  is creating' nation-wide interest. The system has its problems but* it is a large step in  solving the problems "of the  top student and the" slower  students in  the same grade.  This system endeavors to  gar* a program of ' studies to  the pace Of the student, whether fast, average or slow, and  to avoid holding the one back  or pushing the other beyond  his abilities.  This talk was received with  i great interest by parents and  "teachers. It was    decided    to  hold, the February meeting at  the 'same, time as the District  Council conference in- Gibsons;;  ' on Feb. 29J* to take advantage"  of the conference and the spe-,  cial- speakers/ This    will    be  Wednesday, Feb. 29, .instead of  Tuesday, 28th. It is hoped the  speakers will    be    announced  before that date.  7 inch snow  A seven inch snow-fall which  skirted Gibsons but covered  an area as far up-coast as Selma Park fell Sunday and blanketed quite an area, R.F. Kennett, the weatherman reports.  He added that the most recent comparable snow was 11.2  on Jan. 25, 1954. The heavy  cloud that precipitated the  snow had been building up towards Mount Elphinstone for  some hours, he reported and  when it let go, it was quite a  snowfall.  Monday night's temperature  went  down   to   14.6     degrees  . which is    somewhat    on * the  coldi.'side for this part of. the  country.  Granthams plans  community  drive  1 .Granthams residents, anxious to complete their community hall, are organizing various  money  making projects.  On Wednesday of last week,  Mr. and Mrs. Dan McLean and  Mr. and Mrs. E.M. Wheeler  convened an enjoyable and  successful evening of whist and  cribbage in the hall. Prizes  for the whist going to Mrs.  Bud Bennett, and Mr. Martin,  high scores. Consulation prizes  went to Mrs. M. Haiglund and  Mr. Sam Armour.  Cribbage high scores .went  to Mrs. Hanna and Mr. John  Wood. Consolation prizes went  to Mrs. Johnson and Mr. A.  Child.  The committee in charge  plans further activities in the  ncar future  More help is needed for Gibson Memorial United Church  Sunday school it was reported  at the annual meeting of the  church Tuesday night when a  potluck supper preceded the  business meeting.  Some  25  persons    attended  and heard the annual repprts  of the church and its affiliated organizations. Total givings  for the church passed the $5,-  000 mark this year, Mr. N.  MacKenzie, treasurer reported.  Owing to general expansion  in Gibsons area it was felt  that when a call is made for  a new minister a young man  should beconsidered in view  of the incre&se in the young  er element settling in the district.  v Tlie "church board is in communication with one minister  but to date he has not made up  his mind. The meeting decided  to increase its share of the minister's salary by $100 to make  the amount $2,200 with whatever grant the United Church  in Canada would offer, added.  Rev; E. Kemp the romister  reported, that during the year  there   were .three, baptisms,  four marriages and four burials. Total membership' is-now  80.

It was suggested* at the meeting that  something should be done  about renovating  the    manse.  Reports of the women's or-  ganizations were given by Mrs.  McKibbin, Miss Dobie and  Mrs Donaldson which showed  they all had an active year  which ended with their finances being on the right side. ���   ;,  Mrs. McKibbin who report  ed fcr the Sunday School said  62 children were on the roll  and the four teachers found  handling large classes not to  the best interests of the children and urgedi that more  teachers volunteer to help out.  Resolutions were passed  thanking the heads of all departments and others for their  untiring efforts during the last  year.  When- it came to the election cf officers, Mr. Wicklund  was named, secretary, Mr.  MacKenzie-treasurer, Mr. Newman the M and!

Tlie following letter was received by The Coast News as  "written, without further identification. Usually newspapers  fa not use letters unless there is some positive identification  as to who is sponsoring the letter. The letter follows:  Editor: We, the "Teenagers" of the Peninsula are Asking for help. We are asking the people to help us put our  Ideas over. To put it short, there is simply nothing for us  8a do.  The grownups of the Peninsula seem to take no interest  ini us;at all. However they have plenty to say when we hang  around,, smoke and drive around in cars. Could you tell us  *��5aat we are supposed to spend our money and time on  other than these things.  We are asking only for something to do. If we had a Recreational Centre or perhaps a Roller Rink or something of.  tkis sort we would be fully satisfied. Something like this*  would provide us with something to do and make for good  dfeau fun.  We are the coming generation, we want to work together  mid make our communities fun to live in. *  We are asking the adults for help as we cannot do these  flings alone. "The TEENAGERS"  This letter contains some interesting material worthy of  comment because it reveals the inertia so prevelent among  young people of today. Take the first paragraph  there  & simply nothing for us to do. Those "teenagers" if teen-,  agens -wrote it. want someone to prime the pump for them..  ' y, are unable to prime it themselves.

Hie site, at the  head of Alberni Inlet, near  the present Alberni Pulp mill,  was selected by Captain Edward Stamp of the Andersori  Company in I860 and construction  started  that year.

Canada is  growing up. But Canada like all countries will only acquire  full membership, assured status and finally leadership in  the federation of the world by virtue of the physical and  mental health of all Canadians.  It is not sufficient that one or several sections of the  Bominion should have low rates of sickness and poverty,  that the citizens of only some areas should be well fed, well  jftoused, healthy and long lived. It must be a matter of concern to all Canadians that some parts of Canada have lagged behind others. The great objective should be steadily  advancing standards in all parts of the Dominion.  This objective. requires a continuous health education  programme for the whole of Canada conceived along.the  ���Sroadest lines involving the participation of as many units  af all varieties as possible. Only by such means will official  Departments concerned with the health arid welfare of the  people be strengthened, only by such a nation-wide effort  will laws for the preservation of health and the. abolition of  jgoverty be passed in all-Provinces not merely in some.  A rotten apple will affect a barrel of good apples. Communicable disease will spread from a neglected area, to a  iiealthy area or the criminal in the slums may rob and kill  Bias wealthy neighbour. The objectives of humanitarianism  are not parochial but national and world-wide. And as the  objectives of universal humanitarianism are realized th^re  "mil be no slums or disease anywhere to infect the rest of  the world. If we in Canada realize the significance of these  jjdeals we will work not only for the health of parts of our  eountry but always for the health and welfare of all  Canadians.  e�� another pioneer,-- William-  Banfield,"~ who spoke the.native language, smoothed things:  . out, but not before:   he    laid  down a strict code ;of conduct  to be followed; by the    white  workers. This included r_o sale  of intoxicants, no ^foolish sky-V  larking", and    no    indiscreet  use  of firearms.  The mill reached a peak  production of i.000,t)00 board  feet a year in 18S3. Most of  the lumber went to the VBrit-  ikh market, whic_i at that time  was cut off trbm i��iheV'. of-7jW'  normal source of supply ;. by.:  the, American civil war. Tlie  mill closed in 1866. There had  been a slackening ih demand  andi in addition, the Colonial  Secretary stated "there is no  wood in the district sufficient  to: supply the wants of a large  mill". The huge output of the  present day pulp, plywood,  shingle and saw mills in Port  Alberni make this, latter statement appear absurd but the  crude methods of a century  ago could not make use of the  timber'": readily available by  modern mechanized     legging.  The mill   was managed for  plastering,, have _or the .most.  part been replaced by other  materials. Statistics of 'Production shew that 1926 was the  top year when 1,378,366 M  were- made. Gradual reductions over the years brought  production down to only 155,-  593 M in 1853.

"No," says Fred Edge in the  current January issue of Liberty magazine. Though the 'in-  tra-mural rituals of these  "secret" societies are . clouded  from the public eye, these  groups are actually big business enterprises, valuable  boons to small town culture.  The eight most powerful  societies are:  Ancient Free and Accepted  Masons of - Canadtet; Ancient  Arabic Order of the Nobles of  the Mystic Shrine for North  America; Maccabees; Independent Order of Foresters;  Knights of Columbus; Loyal  Order of Moose; Independant  Order of Odd Fellows; and  Loyal Orange Association.

THE   CHARTERED   BANKS   SERVING  YOUR   COMMUNITY  Ai BY TONY GARGRAVE  When you are a member o_  the legislature you run into  many things. The most fantastic story I have heard up  to  datet   is  that    oi-    Robert  John  Fraser.  Bob Fraser is 24, and was  born.at Fort St. John, B.C.  His mother left his father  when he was a child and his  father brought the boy up.  According to friends at Prince  George he is a pleasant .truthful lad. One night last year  he- had a few drinks too many  and ended up in the Prince  George municipal jail,  story. A story which the public  ., '.'���*"**  In -that jail began a "terrible  only heard about, six months  later, when a reporter from  the Prince George Daily Citizen tumbled on the incident.  While Bob Fraser was in the  municipal jail on  a    drinking  charge he was taken from the  jail by two RCMP- officers, in  plain clothes, put into    a    car  and driven    15 miles    out    of  town to an isolated spot called  the Blackwater- Road.  The    two    policemen    were  after a confession that Robert  John Fraser had attacked and  robbed  an elderly    Chinaman  ' of thirty dollars.  /        *     *     *  While one officer held Fra-  ser's head by the hair another  struck him across the face,  with blood running from his  nose, they told him.they would  keep him there two hours or  all day if necessary. He said  he would sign anything.  These two police officers  were convinced^ that Bob Fraser was guilty. *  As eager, efficient policemen  they "knew" they had the  right man and they were determined to get the evidence.  Bob Fraser signed the confession, was found guilty in magistrate's court and several  days later sentenced    to    one.

Well, as. we know now, he  wasen't the right man. Another  person named ."Fraser" was  later convicted for the same  offence and sentenced to 14  months in prison. The two PC  CMP officers have since been  punished by their own Force.  This case, of overwhelming  frightening proportions, has  many fantastic features. Why  were two policemen in plain  clothes ever allowed to take a  prisoner cut of jail, put him in  an automobile, and drive to a ,  lonely spot outside the city for  questioning? Was this a routine procedure?  The knowledge, freely admitted by Inspector J.D. Lee  of the RCMP detachment at  Prince George, that a false  confession was beaten out of  a prisoner must make the oi*-  dinary citizen sick.  Young Fraser, completely in  the hands -of the police, was  terrified to go back on his confession of robbery with violence, lest he receive another  beating.  At the last minute Bcb Fra-  ser's brother became worried  at the seriousness of the charge.  He retained' a lawyer who only  spoke to the mitigation of  sentence. Bob Fraser now has  a new lawyer.  Man}' things are unanswered about this case but I sam  determined to get all the facts.  I have already placed a series  of questions on the legislative  order paper, asking the attorney-general for more details.  i. *     *.    * -.  Fraser's  release    from     his  five months'  imprisonment in  Qakaila jail came about something like this.    As    he    was  working,in the jail one.day a.  guard is reported to have said  to: him, "Hey, Fraser, the A.G. -"  says we got to let you- out today." After he had    gathered-;  together his    things    he   was  asked whether he wanted    to/  go back to Prince' George. No;  doubt remernberirig|what had  happened  there lie'said,'"No,;.

BY ERIC THOMSON  John Olson, who    died    in  North "Vancouver on  January  23rd was fcr many years a res-  ident of Hopkins landing where  he had a little farm at Lang-  dale  Creek bridge,  which    is  now a culvert. He was a true  frontier mechanic, and out of  the odds and ends of old cars  water  pipes  and logging  machinery, he contrived a water  wheel  which ran a pump to  raise   water   up  to a wooden  tank for his supply. He was a  familiar  sight in Gibsons,  as,  long before the road was paved  he used to travel to the village  en a motor-scooter. When this  wore out he amalgamated parts  of  three trucks to make  one  that would  go, but he never  got it on the road because the  ccst   of  changing the  records'  at Victoria equalled the cost of  a used truck. Before the days of  bull-dozers, he dug out foundations with a scoop pulled by  his  blue ox, and    this   beast  knew to the inch what had to  be done, and when the ox quit,  the job was done. Mr. Olson  was a great    friend    o_!    the  small boys of the settlement,  not only in his willingness to  supply from his extraordinary  store of "spare parts", everything required; by the youthful  pirates and-   tree^\peilers    tJ_ 7.  the- times fcr their adventures  and back of his barn was the  best place, for fish-worms, the  "freedom of the pile" always  being cheerfully grantd by the  owner.  The sympathy of his former  neighbors and friends goies  oiit to his widow and family.  John Olson died in North  Vancouver, where he had fceei.  living at 1341 Dollarton Highway. He was in his 81st year.  He leaves his wife, one 7 son  Fred at IVtaplewood, and one  daughter Mrs. J.A.

WHO MOVES  IN  Jesus told a story of a house  which had been cleaned and  garnished and an evil spirit  had been cast out.

Let's not  judge each other but let us  keep busy in a healthy way;  we are better, and happier  when  we  are   occupied.  Some men are tired at the  end of the day; others insist  on helping with the dishes -  God  bless them.  Our quotation to-day is  from Corinthians: Ye ,are  labourers together with God.

McNUTT  In the last half of the 1930's  a number of events occurred  around Egmont which remain  firmly fixed in the memories  of the settlers.  Those were still depression  times and as in the eld days  people looked to the country  whenever possible to help out  with living. As one of them  said, Egmont was one place  where you could always manage to make a living of some  sort and keep on living.  It was getting into December when young Johnny  Vaughan and Ben Griffith decided to go out to hunt for  some "mowich" to help out the  family larder. Borrowing two  guns and taking a small fish  boat, they expressed their intention of going over to Nelson Island.  ��� Some worry was felt when  they did not return that night  but it was decided that as it  had started to snow that afternoon they were probably staying in their boat till morning  when it would be easier to  see their way .home:  Morning passed. but still no  Johnny or Ben. Engines were  started up and the boats went  to look for them, After some  time spent searching, their,  boat was found anchored a  short distance above .Westmere..  The cabin' door was' open, the  alarm clock had stopped and  snow Was drifted in on the  floor. By this evidence it was  plain they had not been back  tb the boat since they left it.  This news was relayed back  home.  The'" following morning   all  boats were out' searching the  shores. As Ernest Seaton slowly proceeded down -the    west  side:Of the island he   saw    a  figure frantically waving    on "  shore. This turned 'out to    be  Ben. They had to climb up the  hill to carry out Johnny.   He  had given up from weariness,  hunger and tlie cold. One    of  his 7ieet was frozen.  y It7was7then learned theyshad ���'.  climbed up the .^mountain that  Vf|rstp&yrkna7 ityhaS started to  snow.    TheyV had no compass,  and with    the    snow    falling '  amongst the trees soon    were  lost. Then it grew dark.  Next mornjtng they    continued on arid started down hill  going in the direction they  thought the boat lay. After  some time and coming cut on  an open spot they saw that they  were on the far side of the  Island. There was nothing to  do but- start back up the hill.  They were travelling pretty  slowly by this time.  Johnny complained of feeling tired so Ben suggested  that Johnny exchange his fisherman's gum boots for Ben's  running shoes. So this was  xlone. What with the snow and  all it was not long before  Johnny's feet were soaking  wet.  Having reached the higher  levels they once more got turned around amongst the ravines and hills. The snow made  hard going of it tco.  On the third morning they  discovered they were again  going down the far side of the  island. It was then that  Johnny gave up and lay down.  Ben wasn't in much better  shape but managed to make it  to the beach just in time to  be seen by Ernie Seaton.  Through all this they con  tinued to hang on to the guns  explaining that they couldn't  leave them behind because  they were borrowed. Needless  to'say after such an anxious  time their parents; were overjoyed to see them. , .  1 It was about this time that  Mr. Earl sent the two older  boys, Leslie and Norman, up  to the back of the ranch to fell  a tree for wood. Some consid-,  erable time elapsed and listen  as he might he could hear no ,  sound of a tree failing nor  even any noise that might suggest that they Were working  at the job, Thinking' that they  were fooling around and wasting time he decided to go  quietly up to see what they  wiere .doing. '   .  . Just as he got there ihe tree,  fell with a crash and there  was no time for him to get out -  otf. the way.. The boys were  horrified to seey, what had  happened. ^ -  AsVsoon as they had extricated" him they carried him  down to their small fish boat  and. started for the hospital  in Pender Harbour. It was a  stormy day and very rough  en the water. When they got  to Norman Point they    found  Another Top  Feature  In  Our  Many Outstanding  TV VALUES!

Truth is stranger than fiction,  in fact to some it is a perfect  stranger.  they could go no farther and  so were forced to turn back  and wait for the sea to abate  before they'started cut again.  They made it the second time  but on the way there their  father had died.  One day word went around  that there was ice cream to be  had at Taki and Maida's store.  This was before the days of  dry ice and ice cream in Egmont was rather a rare commodity.  When    word    reached    the  Andersen girls who lived with  their    parents    through      the  , Chuck, nothing would do but  they must have some.  Their father was away with  the gas boat at the time and  the row boat they were in the  habit of using was up for repairs so they borrowed one.  They were quite familiar with  the ways of the Skookum  Chuck - too familiar their  mother sometimes thought.  They usually figured to come  out with the last of the run-  cut, hurry to the store, where  they were always waited upon  immediately, and get back just  as the run-in had barely got  started.  Taking a container for the  ice cream avfay they went, in  the borrowed boat, the oldest  girl, Mary, about 18 and the  two  younger   girls.   Doris  tlie  second  daughter, was in Vancouver at the Sme.  When the'usual time had  elapsed and they had not returned their mother began to  worry but consoled herself  with the thought that they  had gone tD visit the school  teacher. The next slack tide  was at night. Unable to contain her fears, Mrs. Anderson  went over to Mrs. Cuttle's to  wait for her husband's return  in the morning.  As scon as Mr. Anderson  arrived he was told so he went  through the Chuck and to the  store. There he learned that  the girls had never been there.  A hurried ��� inquiry around  drew a blank.  A search was started and  the row-boat was found floating upside down. It was learned that Mrs. Points had seen  the container floating in the  water.  Days were spent cutting  kelp in the Chuck and people  searched everywhere but they  were never found. It was a  terrible blow  to the    family.  UNWANTED HAIR  Vanished away with Saca-Pelo.
