A private dance will conclude the evening's entertainment.  Due to popular demand it has  been decided that the bathing  beauty contest for the Dominion  Day celebration will not be  confined to any age group but  will.be open to all. A number  of the business men of the district have expressed their willingness to enter floats in the  parade, many of them are  agreeable to entering a bathing  beauty contestant in conjunction with their float.  Present response indicates  that there should be the largest  parade ��� yet���approximately 40  individuals    and    firms    have  40 floats  to  r para  de  shown interest in this event and  the entries will include commercial, comic and those, carrying the battling beauties. The  commercial section- is expected  to include some the largest logging equipment used in the industry today entered, by some  of our local logging firms.  The decoration committee has  the situation well in hand. It is  proposed to have a large supply of flags to hand out to the  small children to add to the  color of the occasion.  It is hoped that the storekeepers and occupants of all  buildings along the route of the  parade will co-operate by dec-  crating their buildings and store  windows appropriately on that  weekend.  rescue  Mr. and Mrs. H. Allan who  live in the Sea Crest area of  Halfmoon Bay witnessed a  dramatic Air Sea rescue by-  Helicopter on Friday morning.  Watching the high seas, from  ;a window in their home they  noticed a fish boat drifting  close to a reef which runs out  from their property.  A department  of  transport  ytug boat tried to aid, the fish  ,:boat but .was unable to owing  -to the heavy seas. It.radioed  tfor help,and;^  '���% helicopter appeared^??^s ^  Just then; a- man appeared  on the deck of the fish boat  shouting for help, he apparently had been sleeping and  was unaware his boat was a-  drift. The'copter .crew lowered a belt to the fisherman  who was unwilling to leave  his boat, they then landed  on the beach, borrowed an  ' eight foot dinghy from the Allans and rowed to the sticken  vessel. The scantily clad, fisherman was blue with the cold  and they had to help him a-  board. They rowed back to the  beach got the man aboard the  'copter arid headed for Vancouver.  The owner of the fishboat  is Ed. Dee, 53, and his boat is  the 30 foot Rhona J. Mr. Allan  is watching the boat until the  owner can salvage her.

Ruby Lake  fire letter  Editor:  I read your articles on the  Ruby Lake fire with interest  and am, writing this letter in  defense of the forestry agent  at Madeira Park,  If you go deep into the archives ' of forestry manipulation  I gather you will find that the  district forestry official has to  fire the starting gun before  the" man at Madeira Park or  any other-station can get off  the  mark.  .Otherwise   I   am  in   agreement with your remarks.  R. T. Harris  surprised  On Friday May 25, the R.  D. Murdochs of Pender Harbour who are always ready to  help any one else, had the  tables turned on them.

Last week the editorial theme was "When is a forest fire  and if it is when does it become official." This week the theme  will be along similar lines but the text will be ':When and what  is an emergency?" involving forest fire fighting,  It is not the desire of The Coast News to be taking pot  shots at any government branch unless there is reason for doing  so. But actions by members of the Forestry branch of the  provincial government during recent days have left much to  be desired in the minds of many people. Last week it wais  explained hew a man was fined $100 for leaving a fire unattended and how a Forestry branch official could leave a  serious fire burning unattended except for watchers who were  powerless to act, resulting in a serious fire lasting some days.  Once again it should be stressed that thousands of dollars  axe spent annually by the government and industry in warning  against .forest fores. This is all tQ the good except for one thing.  There appears to be a very narrow bottleneck in the fire-fighting setup which apparently does not allow a man on the spot  to take prompt action to avoid what -could.become a holacaust.  While this may not be the intent of ��� the legislation covering the  Forestry department it does in fact actually occur at the lowest  level of the administration ��� the mafi on the spot.  To explain what this editorial is aiming at, a recent court  case supplies the necessary example: A fire was discovered at  Vanguard Bay, Nelson Island, May 3 on a right-of-way that had  been cleared previously. A logging outfit nearby, the same one  that had cleared the right-of-way, arrived on the scene of the fire  in short notice and did what they could to keep it under control.  The pump being used broke down and a phone call was  made to Powell River and the ranger was asked to send a pump  at company expense to help fight- the fire. There was no definite answer and the pump did not arrive.  Later on the same day, May 3 a fire ranger boat with a  pump arrived but the ranger said he had no authority to allow  the use of the pump. Next morning company men took the  pump from the boat and used it spray the fire area. At 4 p.m.  they were ordered to return the pump to the boat and the logging operator was told he would, have get 22 men to fight the  fire ��� but apparently n0 pump. He had 14 men on the job withi  equipment and a broken down pump.  On May 4 the logger operator again asked-fo a pump and  was told there was no authority to give him the pump and that  .it was his, the logging operator^ job to provide men-to fight  ���the fire. Apparently throughout Ahis whole affair was cne of  these jurisdictional disputes as toi whose fire it was. The.logging  operator claimed it was not his ftre as: he had net been in that  vicinty for some time. Apparently the fire rangers were of  anotiier. opinion. ���..���������������'-...������  Now any sane and sensible person would say a forest or  bush fire that could lead to a major fire is a serious matter and  should be extinguished as quickly as possible.-But "we have  apparently in British Columbia first a jurisdictional dispute to  settle before authorities can ta��e part. 7ls that why we have so  'many fires that get out of contrpl?  In view of the fact tlie government makes a great to do  about our wonderful natural resources the jurisdictional dispute does seem somewhat foolish. No matter who is responsible  for a fire it should be attacked with all possible means available* including government pumps. In many cases it is difficult  to pTOve who is responsible for a fire. But does that really  matter once a fire has been spotted?  Are government pumps so sacrosanct that only a release  from on high can allow their use? Are they kept in ranger  boats for the purpose of helping extinguish a fire? Which, brings  us back to the theme "When is ah emergency?" It would seem  to the average person that any sign of a fire in a forest  erea is an emergency to be attacked as quickly and as ruthlessly as possible. -    . , .  Maybe The Coast News is not thinking straight, Maybe it  needs some explanation from the Forestry department. The  Coast News will welcome any and all 1 explanations without  reservations,   y  As a footnote the logging' company involved in this fire  was charged by the Forestry!branch with "failing to do their  utmost to control and extinguish' a fire at Vanbuard Bay, Nelson  Island," The charge was dismissed.  As another and possibly more potent footnote an item wos  phoned in Monday from a forestry official stating that two men  3iad been fined $25 for refusing to go and fight a forest fire.  What, difference is there in the forestry department refusing to use a pump when Requested and two men refusing to  go and fight a forest fire? Trie King can do no wrong? Not in  this day and age. Sweet reasonableness could work wonders.  AND SAVE OUR FORESTS.  You Cmh Help  i:;.

Civil Defence cO-operation  The 10 provincial govern:  ments in Canada would be responsible should a disaster ever  hit this continent. Meanwhile,,  the provinces' job is to make  such co - operation possible  should emergency conditions,  arise.   ���  , The latest civil defence think-.  ing has underlined this duty of  the    provinces    heavier   .than  others.  First the provincial governments had .to create their own  CD. organization. This was  done " following conferences  among federal and provincial  authorities in 1950-51 and-reg-'  ularly since. Each province  now has a functioning. CD. organization within. the . framework cf "its government. Each  has a cabinet minister responsible for CD. and a provincial  co-ordinator. Their staffs vary-  according to how actively the  province participates^  Canada's constitution is such  that communication between  various governmental levels  runs from the federal through  the provincial'to the municipal  or local. This places responsibility on the province for coordinating the efforts of its  communities into the plan for  the whole country.  The province must help its  communities organize their  routes to be taken to these reception areas These areas  would have to provide fcod  and shelter from weather.  The province must organize  own C.D. setups; it must keep  municipalities informed1 of the  latest developments and provide training of civil defence  volunteers witJain the province.  It also must provide the legislation necessary  fcr local au  thorities to operate; that is, it  must delegate the necessary  authority to carry out a civil  defence   operation.  What about the money necessary fcr equipment, training  and organization centres? The  province is responsible for assisting in this way, top.. It can  get  financial  help  from    the  ��� federal government which will  match provincial contributions  on- a' dollar-for-dollar basis up  to an amount based on the population of each province. If the  province   agrees  (the     federal  government, under the constitution,  cannot work     directly  with   the   municipality   unless  the province allows, it) the federal CD. organization can contribute 25 per cent of a local  project's  costs.   Then ( if    the  province puts in 25 per cent,  leaving  the municipality with  the other 25  per cent of the  cost to pay. Beyond this federal assistance the province must  go itself.  The big job of each province,  however, is to organize reception areas to take in . people  evacuated from cities). These  will be towns and; villages ringing target cities.       7  British Columbia's forest pulp  and paper mill was- built, about  1894 in Port Alberni. Due to  lack of technocal; knowledge  and inexperience of the operators, the enterprise went bankrupt.

He may not be  extra-ordinarily smart - let's  face it, he may only occasionally show signs cf fleeting intelligence, but somewhere under that treasured lapel-pin is  a heart cf 22-carat gold.  He may be described as eternally youthful - indeed it is a  rare thing to have a Kinsman  admit he is anywhere near  forty. This he will do only at  election time in the club. Then  he has "just turned 40". (You  see no one ever 40 may hold  Kin office.)  Any young man of good character may become a Kinsman  on the approval of a local club  to which he has been invited  by some Kinsman of��his acquaintance. He must be somewhere between 21 and 40 years  of age. He must be able to produce a modest, membership fee,  usually around fifteen dollars  a year. He must be prepared  to attend all meetings.

There was  one settlement to which people  came from isolated farms 15  and 20 miles distant} They  were grand people and I enjoyed my life among them. We  had no cars and drove to the  meeting house in buggies.  We had our problems and  little things seemed important.  Many of our people saw little  of the outside world; neither  radio nor television were even  heard of; people heated their  homes with wood.  a * *  I was young and eager to  fill the church and if a family  neglected church attendance,  it upset me. There was one  couple who were extremely  kind to me when I visited  them, but never came to church  services, I decided to discuss  the matter with them.  Very tactfu ly, I thought,  I  brought the matter up during  a visit. Then the'lady said: "I  have   a   good  reason  for   not  going". It took ia. While to get  her to say what it was. Finally  she came out with this explan-7  ation.   "Nine   years  ago,"   she  said.   "One   Easter   Sunday,   I  went to; church with a new hat  and  the     girls   in     the  choir  laughed at it; it hurt my feelings   so   much   I   never  went  back  to church",  * * * ' r  S0 there . it was, for nine .  long years she had' denied herself the privilege and pleasure  of worship because of what  she thought was ridicule. Of  course, it was a foolish ex-,  cuse, but t0 her the wound  was deep even after nine years.  The story seems amusing  now, but I have sympathy for  that dear eld lady even though  I know her attitude was mistaken.
