The  students have also, arranged for  entertainment of the queen  duing the regatta.  The Aquatic Club is also  arranging swimming lessons  for children and it is hoped to  obtain an instructor for one  month during the summer.  After reading reports and  editorials in the Press with regard to the Ruby Lake fire,  and the spate of opinions being  expressed on the action taken  by \the Forestry Dept. to combat and extinguish it the Pender Harbour Board of Trade  has made careful enquiries; rer  suiting in the following findings:  The Forestry Officer of a  District has absolute jurisdiction over any fires occuring in  his District, and does not have  to refer to anyone before tak-  . ing action. There was no argument as to Who was, responsible for the Ruby Lake fire  before action was-taken.  The outbreak of the fire at  Ruby Lake was reported to the  Forestry . Dept. on    Tuesday,  May  22nd.  at  12:15 p.m.   by  Mri   Lucas,    contractor    for  , Hume and Rumble. His truck  was immediately loaded with  . sufficient tools and back tank  pumps to   equip    the   Hume  and Rumble crew, and he left  immediately, approximately at  12:25 h> return. to the     fire.

"Next day the  number of 7 men fighting the  fire- Wai increased to 95 with  5 bullddzers.  It Will be remembered that  during that time there was a  brisk westerly blowing; and the  fire was travelling at a very  % high: speed through an old logged area full    of old    slash.

By the end of May 24th. the  long range plans were carries!  out and no further trouble  was experienced with the fire  except for a minor breakaway  in the vicinity of a small lake  on the east side, to which  pumps and equipment were  dropped by helicopter, ahdv it  was controlled and extinguished before any, danger to the  overall  plans could develop.

The population of Gibsons has a chance to add gaiety  to their lives and set the pace for an annual celebration  which should get bigger ahd better in the years to come.  JEvery community strives to achieve a note of distinc-  ��&m through some annual event. Gibsons cannot have bon-  s&kHs, hockey playoffs, monster parades with umpteen  bands, fruit day celebrations and such like but it can do its  besfc by drumming up a good sized celebration on a day  wMch should be blessed with fine weather.  Speaking about the weather should remind one that  \ee cannot do much about it, but if it should shine Gibsons  merchants should get 'to work on their floats, and other  segments of Gibsons and district involved in other phases  e�� the Dominipn Day celebration should work oh their  angles with gusto.  Seehelt has its May Day. Gibsons should have its  Jtdy 1 celebration and it should be a good one. If you can  decorate your store why not add a litte color to the event,  particularly if you are on the rout of the parade.  Let's pull together and have big day Let a carnival  spirit prevail. , ,  Our budding writers  A. new anthology on the market will please many readers  across Canada. It is a selection  of prose and verse, called First  Flowering.. It contains short  stories, articles, descriptive and  biographical material, - some  satire, descriptive and imaginative poems.  Anthony Frisch, editor of  First Flowering, is. a Canadian,  a graduate of McGill, an RCAF  veteran of World War II, a reporter and a poet.  The writers are Canadians,  too; Canadian students, ranging  in age from 12 to 19, in grades  ? to 13 in high schools all across  Canada. It is the result of a  competition conducted last  autumn in which 5,300 entries  were received.  It is the first book of its kind  ever published and grew from  an idea of Mr. Frisch's. It was  supported by the Departments  of Eudcation and North Affairs,  the Canadian Press and CBC.  Almost every newspaper in  Canada aided the idea.  In less than eight months,  Mr. Frisch and his assistant editor, John Harasti, had 5,300  items to review for publication  by Kingswood House, Toronto.  Among   the    contributors of  First  Flowering,  three   of   the  members of the youth of Can- '  ada are students at Elphinstone .  high school, Gibsons.   They are  George Slinn, author of Eng7  lish Forty; Annette Marleau,  who wrote On Literary Works;  and Lloyd Burritt, who submitted A Winter Fantasy.  The possibilities of development of this idea in the publication of First Flowering are  enormous. Writers whose works  have been published are encouraged to develop their talents, increase their output, and  to expand the quality of their  work.  Canadian readers, and others,  will realize the inherent ability  of these writers to give.expression to ideas, and to provide the  world with a whole new source  of-reading which, for the very  lack of use, is in danger of being lost.  If the literature of a nation  is the measure of its size, First  Flowering is an indication of  increasing maturity in Canada  and of her youth. Further publications of a similar nature  should be both possible and  popular.  Locally, credit for encouragement of the authors is given to  the principal of the school, Mr.  S. Trueman, and English teachers, Mrs. Day and Mr. Les Peterson, particularly Mr. Peterson, who. has through his teaching years extended every effort  towards the development of expression among his students.

THE INSURANCE AGEOTS1  ASSOCIATION  OF BRITISH COLUMBIA  BY E. J. ATLEE  In new country like B.C.,  where electricity provides the  housewife with many facilities,  a good road very often is lacking. But the common use of  the motor-car and truck and  the speed thereof makes a good  road a public necessity. -.  Most of the roads arpund Gibsons at least were originally  logging trails. The tortuous Sechelt Road from Gibsons pier  head is a good example. The  Rocky Road is another. We who  have lived in the Sunshines  Coast area for a ' number of  years can tell of improvements  done in this direction and appreciate them*  For instance, about nine years  ago in the winter time, the  Sechelt road in places was impassable, the doctor in his car  having to be pulled through by  truck, and the ^Anglican minister, Rev. C. H. Gibbs, having  to reach the churches at Roberts Creek and; Sechelt via  Vancouver. The scenic road to  Port Mellon was a dream as  well as a political bunch of carrots. But now a good highway  conneqts us witlrPpwell River,  ��� thereby helping to develop the  districts along, its route as well1  as. providing thoroughfare to  the car and passenger ferries to  Vancouver.  The youth of .today will readily remember the building of  the Alcan Highway in the north,  and why; for primarily this  road is a military one., Many  people in this district will recall the wooden block streets of  downtown Vancouver, and the  planked roads in the suburbs.  A plank very often would become loose and would thump  and bang as a car passed over  it. It was a familiar saying in  those days that if you are driving, we live so many houses  past the bump.  But let us reflect a moment.  Others,   in   other   places   and  times, going back 2,000 years or  more1, had their road problems  also. The Icenii of what is now  England   had   their   communicating roads  and  it  has  been '  proven  many times  that/there  were such; not only by -visible  parts of ancient highways, but  by   the   finding   of   chieftains'  chariot wheels  arid horseshar-  ness  in  mounds   and   barrows  (graves)., along the route. And  a   reminder  of   those days   so  long ago is to be. found on the  Thames    Embankment     in    a  monument  to  Queen  Boadicea  who led her people against the  Roman     invaders;     her     two  daughters are depicted kneeling  by her side in the chariot.  One still 7 defined "Way" is  the Ridgeway dating from the  bronze age at least. Running  along the Berkshire Downs  west to North Wales, and east  to the Lincolnshire Wash. Irish  gold and jewellery have been  found along this Way, indicating that trading was done with  the Scandinavian countries, and  that this land route was preferred rather than the boat voyage, around Lands End, Cornwall Yet ornaments and other :  articles from Northern Europe  have been foupd buried along  the Way,���a pedlar's cache.  Logging  Fifty 'rare photographs of  early" logging operations, including dozens of B.C. photographs never before reproduced, are to be used in new book  of old tinjes in the industry���  ''Glory Pays of Logging;"  The author, Ralph W. Andrews, whose "This Was Logging" was published in 1954 and  Which received an historical  society award as well as enthusiastic response from lumbering circles and the general  public, spent two years researching and contacting loggers, inspecting photo collections.  Information from the publishers places the book in a  premium class with fine-screen  copper engravings of old logging scene?  The Superior Publishing Co.,  P.O. Box 2190, Seattle 11, offers  free upon request an eight-page  sample    brochure of the book  which will appear this fall.  Now the Romans; when we  think of the Romans, our  thoughts naturally turn to their  (laws, architecture, and road  making, ��� the Via Appia,�� a  military road, begun about 312  BC by Appius Claudius. ��� also  his famed aquaduct. He carried  the former- from Rome to Capua  through difficult country, over  hills, ravines and marshes; and  so great was his skill that much  of the old work remains to this  day. Horace," in his first satire,  describes a journey along it,  and Paul of Tarsus (St Paul),  when a prisoner,"walked along  it.  In Britain, the Roman roads  were built to one pattern. First,  trenches were dug each side;  the center was then excavated  until the ground was firm  enough for the foundation.  Quarried stone, as big_ as a  man's-fist, and rubble mjxed  with lime followed. Then came  gravel, chalk and even broken  earthenware. More quarried  stones and sandy earth completed the work,- and the whole  was made firm by/ramming.  The road when finished,; was  a causeway slightly above the  level of the surrounding country. It'was built" as straight as  possible to lessen the risk of  ambushes and to aid the progress of the' baggage wagons  which had no moveable joint  between two pairs of wheeles.  One of the earlier Roman  roads was the Portway, since  a brick was found in its layers  with the stamp of Nero (AD  54-68). But on the retirement  of the Romans from Britain,  these splendid roads were not  kept up, and it took the murder of Thomas A'Becket in 1170  to arouse a little interest in  them.  Pilgrims riding to Canterbury  must have gone through a terrible time, and by the 14th cen-  pr  tury, were looked upon as unfortunates whom the Church  must assist. The monasteries  undertook to repair the highways, and any layman who cared to assist was granted an  "indulgence". By 1364, congregations could not reach their  churches, and parliament was  adjourned after being summoned because members found the  roads  impassable.  In Queen Mary's reign, 1555,  an act was passed which provided '.forced labour for the repair of roads to markt towns.  The act was not a success; the  surveyors concentrated most of  the labour on those parts of the  roads   which   they   themselves  chiefly  used.  Early ^Stuart legislation    sought,  to    decrease  traffic and James the First, unsuccessfully attempted to make  four wheeled carts illegal. The  highways improved,  and speed  increased,  with  the  advent of  the four-in-hand coaches, called  'flying  machines',  and  in  1712  the   London   Edinburgh   coach  was advertised to perform the  whole journey in 13 days,   (if  God permits).' ''.'*'  It was the mail coaches, decorated with flowers, oak leaves  and ribbons, that ' spread the  news of such victories as Trafalgar, and > Waterloo . through  ..the countryside. The coaching  era reached its peak in 1836.  There were then oyer 3G00f  coaches on. the road, half of  them running to or from London. They made use of 150,000  horses' and gave employment, to  30,000 coachmen, guards, horse-  keepers and hostlers. From one  London tavern alone, eighty  coaches set out daily .for the ���  north. Then came the steam  carriage, called a 'Gurney' af-  For Guarenleed  Watch and Jewelry  Repairs    ���  CHRIS'S   JEWELERS  Work   done   on* the  Premises  Phone 96 Sechelt  2     Coast News, June 28, 1956  ter the inventor, a curioMs conveyance with its coke furnace,  boiler tubes and levers set over  the back wheels, which appeared on the roads in the 1820's,  carrying both- inside and; outside passengers. The Gurneys  were put out of action by the  heavy tolls the 'turnpikes' imposed upon them.  Steam traction engines then  made their appearance about  1862, were unpopular, and,, by  law, could not proceed any faster than four miles per hour,  preceded by a man carrying a  red flag. In 1895 the first motor  car arrived in England, and  from that time onward, in every  civilized country, new ideas:  have been tried and tested for  a hard and durable surface to  stand up to the speed and wear  of modern traffic.  lyouf  marieyi  fo bmi-sdy^- -7  leadtuslMfl��  J  You probably don't burn  your "spare", dollars but  perhaps' they vanish anyway.

Even intelligent and  "otherwise well-balanced' people  can be depressed or exaperated  by it. The poet Tennyson could  be made ill by unfavorable reviews of his poetry, and the  early death of Keats has been  attributed to a bitter attack on  his poetry. The Danish artist  Dore was  another  genius who  resented censure of any kind.  *    *    *  ��� Those of us who are ordinary  folk often act in much the same  way. We become suspicious of  the critics and feel like telling  them to mind their own business. We think the criticism is  personal and wonder why we  have been singled out for attacks.  This isn't true; everybody has  critics and a realization of this  fact ought to make us feel a  little���a good deal���more comfortable. The person who doesn't 'get some, criticism hasn't  been born. So, cheer up, you're  in good company.     '  The Apostle Paul was loved by  the Galacian Christians; as we  would say: "They would give  their eye teeth, for him." But  he felt it his duty to correct  some abuses among them and  instantly they showed resentment. He wrote probably more  in sorrow than in anger: "Am I  your enemy because I tell you  the truth?"  ���    *    *  In Louis Fischer's "Life of  Mahatma Gandhi," he says that  one source of Gandhi's strength  was he did not resent criticism',  indeed he welcomed it. He used  to say: "My critics are friends  in disguise. They do me a service for they force ..me to examine myself."   .      ',,.'���'  BY  PHYLLIS  M.

Repeat-;  edly this little man-r-who wasfa;  very big man���thanked others  for calling attention to his  weaknesses. He examined carefully wha.t they said, then asked himself how much of it was  true. Few of us are big enough  to do that. 7 Giving advice, they  say, is an art. So is taking ad-j-.  vice arid.it is more difficult.     '  Many years ago there was,a  boy named - William Paley  studying at Cambridge Univer-.  sity in England. He had a lot  of natural ability; it was fairly  easy for him to master even  difficult subjects; but with it  all he seemed indifferent, almost lazy. He spent most of  his time in idleness fand seemed  to be out for a good time and  nothing more. He was wasting  his time. =-  ���    *    ���  One day after being at a party  the previous evening, he was  tired and listless. He didn't  want to open a book or apply  himself to anything. A friend  of his saw how weary, he was  and knew the reason. He said  to Paley: "William, you are a  fool to waste your time like this.  There isn't a smarter. boy in  the college, but you are not trying to do anything worth while.  I wish I had half your ability;  I would go places. Although T  am your friend, I shall renounce  your friendship unless you stop  WMHMNMMHHnHMH)HMMaMaH_M__anMMI  For Guarenteed  Watch and Jewelry  Repairs  CHRIS'S JEWELERS  Work  done  on   the  Premises  Phoiie 96 Sechelt  this idleness and do something."  The words sank deep into  Paley's mind. He knew they  were true. He could think of  weeks and weeks of sheer indolence while he sp^nt his eve-,  nings at parties which left him  sick and tired." The next day  he began to apply himself to  his studies; Frofri that -time  he never wavered in his resolution to work. He rose 'every  morning at five arid often worked till nine at night. His industry was unconquerable; and  although there was a good deal  of competition in that college,  at the end pf the year he stood  first.  *    *    *  .Many years afterwards he  wrote many important books.  He was one of the most distinguished scholars of his day and  had great influence throughout  the world. Some of his writings  became text-books at Cambridge���the very, place where  once he. had wasted so much"  time. He said that he owed  nearly everything to the good  friend who had the courage to  give him a scolding, otherwise  he might never have waked up.  Paley and Gandhi lived in  different countries arid different centuries but they had this  in common ��� they could take  advice and profit by it. Where  smaller men would have "flown  off the handle," they looked on  criticism as a stepping-stone to  character.  Our quotation today is by W.  L.

Q. What foods should be  eaten daily to provide a. balanced diet?  ���  A. It's as easy as counting to  five, according to the food experts., They say there are five  basic food groups which/ are  "musts" if you would.eat well  every day: milk; citrus ahd  other fruits; potatoes and other,  vegetables; bread and whole  grain cereals; arid,.meat, fish or  poultry. In addition, eggs, .  cheese and liver should be included often, and some source  of vitamin D is 'necessary daily  for growing children.  Q. What is protein?  A.,Protein    has    become  an  everyday    item   in    the    food -  world.   But often its real mean-7  ing and function are not clearly 7  understood.   Food scientists ex- -  plain that three main types of .  food  substances   are   used   for  growth,   energy   ahd "maintenance by our bodies.   These are  proteins,    fats    and    carbohydrates.      Fats    and    carbohy-  7 drates are used mainly for heat  and energy.    But proteins  are  rather   complex' building   materials,   made   up   of  different  combinations   of. amino   acids.

"Enriched", "restored" and  "fortified" are terms used to  describe foods whose food: value  is increased by the addition of  extra food nutrients. Such enrichment programs are carefully planned and controlled by  government regulation. Common foods are chosen to carry  the added nutrients (usually  vitamins and minerals)' since  the   main   purpose   of   enrich-  Coast News, June 28, 1956     7  ment is to provide the majority  . of. Canadians with extra insurance against nutritional, deficiencies. Common examples of  Canadian foods which are enrich or fortified are: iodized  salt, with" extra iodine; irradiated evaporated milk, with extra vitamin D; fortified margarine, with added vitamin A; fortified apple juice, with added  vitamin C; enriched flour, with  extra B vitamins and iron; and,  enriched bread, made from enriched flour with milk solids  added.

They  lost the second game at Pender  5-1 to post their: record at 5  wins and 4 losses. However  the Firemen have protested  the Pender game as Pender  was using an unsigned; player.  If this protest is upheld by  the league executive the Firemen will also have a 6 and 3  recordi making.it a three way  tie for first place in the league.  The Merchants are next with  a 4 and 4 record, then Pender  with 2 wins, depending on the  ontcome of the. protest. Sechelt  has yet to chalk up their first  win, but I hear .they have a  good club and will be winning  a .few before  long.  The Merchants won a dlouble  header from Sechelt on Sunday and) are going to give Nthe  other clubs lots of trouble before the season is over -they  really hustle. ,  The   crowds   are   still   poor  and in my opinion are missing  " some" good - 'ball as- the league  appears   to  be    mtore   evenly  matched this season.  The Vancouver Mounties  have come to life winning; 8  of their last twelve games,  they could still make my prediction of a first division  finish come true-maybe.
