"You have gone 153 days,  almost a half-year without an  accident. If I had any part in  this fine record it is because 'I  -helped Mr. Rustemeyer and  Mr. Hall.

Speakers that followed included Ed. Sherman, Ken Hall,  Jim Clarke and Harry Mac-  donald.  Jim Clarke President of the  local Union said: "Two years  ago no one dreamed we would  have the safety record we have  today.

Fair entry  Changes are being made to.  the entry list in tlie Sunshine  Coast Fall Fair which will be,  held in Gibsons, August 16,17  and. 18.    The    committee-'  in  charge   is now    working    on  them, to incorporate them into  this year's program.  , This was annouhced iat last  Friday night's meeting of the  Fair committee in. the   Parish  hall'  under " the." chairmanship  of Roy Malyea. It was decided  that Thursday wouici be opening day and day for' judging  flowers, fruits and, other garden produce. Friday would be  . commercial   exhibits   day   and  and  Saturday Livestock    Day  on which all livestock would  be  judged.   This  means    livestock would have to be at the  fair for one day only, Saturday,  which' will simplify the handling problem by the fair committee and exhibitors.  Door prizes  will  remain    the  same this year, $10, $5 and S3  and the raffle will    also    beheld. . It was announced at the  meeting that last year's raffle  winners have not yet claimed  their prizes so they will be put  up again.  Suggestion has been, made  that the fair this year have a  different color ticket for admission to each day of the fair;  with a fourth ticket available  which would allow entry during all three days. It was suggested that the three-day ticket be offered at a reduced  price for those who want -to  take in the three days. The ticket problem will be left in tlie  hands of the committee in  charge to arrange so the suggestions  so far are  indefinite.  Arrangements are underway  for the attendance of all available queens from every district to be present for the opening day's ceremony. ��� 0  hie Const .'Menus  Published by Sechelt Peninsula Ke^s Lid..  :: ^rety Thursday,  at Gibsons.

The value of a theatre group in any community shouldyfiat  be underestimated. Across Canada the average town of respectable size, has its Little Theatre group and these groups put in  -Many hours, many more tlian the average person suspects, h-  striving to reach theatrical perfection.  In these days of TV. performances, some of which can be  termed without hesitation as being "hamray" there is room for  serious study of the) dramatic arts. Few people are bprn natural actors or actresses but when one is found, the fodividuai  should be encouraged to delve deeper into drama.     *. -.:--��� ������"���{X'-'i  i Thte theatre, like. litet%t^eg painting, sculpture a__��f music is  _m<^e��;fQrpa of-expression. The world, generally, appears to  " fiave reached a block in the use of forms of expression people  ��an understand. Modern "painting" and a good deal of modern  music conveys little to the mind which can betynderstood- Lit-,  eratiire is a�� a low ebb and some of the recent monstrosities:  classified as sculpture are out of this world,.  Any efiort by a group of young people striving, to present to  the community one* of these forms of artistic expression should  areceive plenty of encouragement.; Maybe there is someone in.  the community with a little time and money wilhng to take a  feand in such encouragement. A Gibsons Little TheaJre group  could be formed for study purposes to begin with and later for  more ambitious'works. Such a group could take in adults as well.  as high school students;  Russian somersaults  The Somersaults of the new Soviet rulers appear to have  caught communist parties in other countries uninformed and  unprepared. Particularly embarrasing to Canada's Tim Buck  and other Labor Progressive party members in this country is  Ithe posthumous purge of Josef Stalin. i  Mr. Buck, on the occasion of Stalin's death, indulged in the  snost extravagant eulogies in tribute to the late Soviet dictator.  MHis name", said Canada's Number 1 communist, "will endure  through the ages and so will his work..."   ���  The economic theories of the late Soviet dictator, now discredited by the new Kremlin clique, were also loudly praised.  Said  Mr. Buck,  "Stalin's  greatest  contribution,  his  crowning  glory, is his classic work Economic Problems of Socialism in (the  HSGB ... This work of genius is a guide and handbook for the -  Bfss&nt generation o��;theSpyiet''Union'viha.t:\i^>bu-JLding the Com-  Smwrisfc society for which Stalin labored all his life. It analyses  the taday and the tomorrow of the peoples living in socialist society and charts the sure road to communisim. This is the guide  too for Canadians and all peoples still living under the yoke of  capitalism. . ." , i   ,  It ia reasonable to suppose, that Mr. Buck and the kPP will  find; it possible to adjust themselves to the Kremlin's "new  look" at- Stalin^ but at the moment there must be a good deal of  embarrassment. -���The Printed Word.

They  can do pust that ��� as surprisingly and easily as they   put-  grow  their  shoes!  Be' on  the  lookout for big ; sister's faddy  notion for a ''keep slim" rou-y  tiney It's a. currently'-popular  fashion among the high school  crowd-��� especially the girls���  to aim for slim hips    and    a  small     waist.    Unfortunately,  many of them have the   mistaken idea that skipping breakfast can be the safe and sensible beginning to a    successful  program  of healthful    weight  control. Encourage    them    to  cut down on the total quanity  of all the foodHhey eat, rather  than eliminate any one important food  or meal from their  diet,  "Just  because  the  other  girls are doing it."  And, mother, there's another very important member  of your family who may need  a spring check-up. That's you!  All too many conscientious  mothers give so much attention to feeding their, families,  well, that they neglect their  own food habits, without realizing they are doing so. If you  stop for' a moment, you'll recall that you were just as active as any member of. your  family as you whisked through  your daily household tasks. It  may be old and worn, but the  familier saying still holds true:  "You can't eat like a bird and  work like a horse!" So, do give  up the idea that you can live  on a cup of coffee, or two, until lunch-time. A good breakfast is for you,"too.  Make breakfast the lead-off  meal in your family ��� so that  you're well on the way to  three balanced meals a day!  The answer will be as sure as  young Sue's arithmetic sum,  good nutrition, good health  and happiness for all of you.  GOOD FISHIHG  The fish were really biting  for the Robinson family.
