The Merchants Credit Association of the Sunshine Coast  has now been subscribed. 100 percent, embracing every business  on the coast. This is a.wonderful step fcarward in our ever-grow-  iftg communities, a step that is advantageous not hnly to the  saaerchants but to everyone on the Peninsula.  Through co-ordination of credits with credit bureaus of the  province a poor credit risk cannot come into this area and load  a merchant with debt he cannot handle. Such a liability must be  buried in the price one pays for any commodity. Eliminate such  added expense and prices could be kept lower.  How does this affect those who keep their credit souiid? It  means you can move anywhere in Canada and find NO trouble  In setting up credit. By letter or phone a business man can have  your credit rating in a short space of time. This is like having a  good hank account so you can write a check and have it honored.  Good; -credit is like having money in the bank. Honor your  payments every payday ahd you help the merchant to help you  and best of all you help yourself, tremendously.

This message is especially addressed to those whom we  were unable tot contact personally prior to leaving.  We entered into the labors of those who served so faithfully  feefore us, and carried on by the very present help so readily  given and are confident that the good work will continue and  increase in co-operation with the Rev.

GOWER POINT. OR THE  DAYS OF ROGER PRATT  From  information   received  it is    conceded    that    Gower  Point was logged long before  Gibson got here.    The shores  had been handlogged and then  . the    jyioodyville    Mills     had  ��� moved  iri   with  skidroads    in  from the where the wharf is  now at Gibsons to    take    all  the best fir- timber in a radius of one mile from the old  school house. The other road  .came up from  Gower Point,  and fingered out into th^t area  bourid^ by the cemetery and  the 'ravine of   Paynes    Creek  (it- has only been Pratts creek  recently).  These workings were old  when Gibson came so it must  have > been round the 1860-70  era that they denuded Howe  Sound of its: finest timber.  These  characters only :toolr  the very best, and quite often  only took two or even one log  out of a tree. It was not un-  ��� common  years ago in    these  partis to come across    one    of  these trees with one log taken,  the rest of it would still make  very    fine    firewood.

When  Rodger Pratt moved"  in on  Gower Point  he    used  the old landing of   these    ox  team gentry, of which the only  trace left now   is the   bit   of  green  sward  along   the  road  just passed the  creek mouth.  Progress has surely caught up  . with the creek.  It is nothing  but a trickle now where years  ago there was a pool 50 yards  long and three feet deep that  in the fall was a seething mass  of dog and cohoe salmon, and  rumour has it that some of the  pork sent to town was    redl-  ent with  fish,  which brought  some  acidulous comment.  ,    Pratt had horses, and there  was still plenty  of timber in  the  draws   and  gullies which  the old timers passed up on account of being hard   to    get.  They, hardly ever tok anything  up grade if they could help it.  When they logged, the timber  cut here was known as     Oregon pine' all over the world  and still is called that   in the  Antipodes.  I know some of the men who  worked with Pratt    and    his  One careless match!  camp was somewhat declasse,  a spur of the moment sort of  place as he only filed on the  place for what timber he could  take off it. Shortly after Pratt  some Japenese moved in, but  they were not there very long  and I believe they took a  small quanity of cedar out.  In those days it was. as, simple a that to start logging, a  man' or two men who had a  team and a little credit just  moved in where theyi thought  they could log and went at it.  The total stumpage costs were  rarely more than a dollar,  and one started to log somewhat en the,Jine of picking a  few apples. The long shake  shack that was Pratts camp  kept out the rain and the wind  didn't matter. It had a split  cedar floor and ferns and hay  was laid on shakes to make  bunks. The crew uch as there  was.could swing their feet out  over the side of the bunk and  they were at tlie table/the fire  was an open square of gravel  built up with boards, ahd a  hole ih the roof.  The chap who told me this  said that they never thought  much of it as most of them  rarely stayed more than a few  weeks and it was generally  summertime. The remains of  the log house were there in  1910 with the bones    of    two  2   Coast News, July 12, 71955  oxen who probably were starving to /death when some good  Samaritan came along and1 put  them out of their misery.

A few attended church services but  cujite a number were self-conscious about their shabby  cloths and because they could  not contribute' toy the church.  7 Sometimes in the privacy of  ;a; small room he heard! stories  'of better days, or nostalgic  talks:-of-better times; told frequently without bitterness or  self-pity. The ��� climax ��� came  when, at tlie funeral of an; old  man there was no one present  bht a deaconess, the undertaker*andy himself ,:  7 Straightway/ he announced  thte forhiationof a new organization in the church. Remem-  htering- James < B^rrie'sj beauti-  frii rihrase:.''God gave us-mem-.  oiy so that we might have  roses, in December," he seized  ii$on that name. ..Fromythe  church pulpit, he told of his  plans and1 invited all the old  ;PeopIe;; who felt7they need of  fellowship to join the club.  the "Roses in December Club."  That was the beginning of  One evening a week the old  people met for a lively meeting, bright and cheerful and refreshments. The membership  grew until there were well  over a hundred and for them  it was the highlight of the  week. Old people who had felt  they were derelicts, became  acquainted aind nci meeting,  held around the church has  had a finer atmosphere.  They do everything from  singing hymns and old songs  to playing musical chairs.. Naturally they talk of - the past  and like Mark Twain, in his  old age, they, have lively imaginations. Said Mark: "I used -  to tell stories about things that  happened and! some that didn't.  Now I can only remember the  ones that didn't, happen." Well,  it would; be a drab world if  nobodyy exaggerated a little.  _. There must be hundreds of  situations where an organization of elderly people would  bring help and healing; a live  Bible Class or Young People's  Society could do it, thus giving and receiving a blessing.  The pastor himself died not  long ago, but the club continues its weekly meetings.  Recently a member died who  had no friends or relatives in  this country but there were  over eighty people at the  funeral service, practically all  members of the club, and7 on  the casket was a lovely wreath  and. a card: "From the mem-:.;  bers of the Roses in December-,  Club."  I am glad to pass along this  little story with the hope that  it may have suggestive value.  There isn't a village, town or  city in this vast land without  its quota of lonely old people.  They are the has-beens of life's  game; the players who have  had their palmy: days but; are  now on the sidelines.  In a previous essay I talked  about cheerful old age: and I  am bound to say that many of  the happiest people I have  ever known have been in their  seventies or eighties. It was  once accepted that elderly  people must be morose or melancholy. Even Cicero said that  the aged could do nothing but  think of the good times in the  past.  The philosopher was mistaken. The writer of the First  Psalm knew better than that.  ' Although springtime is the  period of fresh leaves and vitality, he envisaged a life with  old' age fruitful and happy.  "'His leaf shall not wither".  Here is a life crowned with unfading leaves and undiminished i courage and. hope. .  When Oliver Wendall  Holmes was an old man he met  a youth -who7- told him how  highly he and! others regarded  him. Dr. Holmes was slightly  amused hut pleased. 'It is a  great joy," he said, "For those  of us who are going down the  hill to be so, well thought of  by those who are coming up  the hill."

To-compensate for short hay  and sHage? crops -in.. the Fx*aser  Valley, farmers' can stUl^ improve their winter feed reserves,  this year through production of  annual crops.  Providing soil moisture conditions are favorable many annual crops can still be planted  which will produce hay, silage  and fall pasture.  Oats, can ~be seed up Jto the  efidof Jiily at thecc&st ;to produce a late crop of silage or fall  pasture. At these late dates of  seeding, although oats will normally head out before heavy  fall frosts, they will probably  not fill out. Nevertheless they  will give a satisfactory yield of  forage, which can be stored as  silage. Seeding of annual rye  grass at 10 to 15 pounds per  acre with the oats will provide  additional bulk in the harvested  crop.  Early maturing varieties of  corn can be seeded up to June  20th and still produce a good |  tonnage of forage which can he4  ensiled or cut and fed green.      f  Winter cereals such as fall|  wheat ahd fall" rye can be seed- |  ed any time up to the end of |  August:and will provide excel- 17  lent fall as well as early spring |  pasture next year. !>'  If oats and.fall grain are mix-^  ed and seeded before the end of  July the mixed growth will  <nake sufficient fields; to harvest for silage this'fall The fall  grain will normally survive the  winter for early spring grazing.  The British Columbia Department   of   Agriculture   recom-7  mends    sowings  of  90  to  100  pounds  of oats  and  50  to  60  pounds of fall wheat or rye.  The cereals can be grazed  when they are about 8 inches  high.  All crops should be sown into a good seedbed and recommended fertilizers applied at.a  heavy rate ���. ���       *V  SECHELT  Automotive Service,  ......'���       . \ ���,.������'���  LEO ft JOHNSON, OWNER - OPERATOR  Automotive & Body Shop - - Wrecker Service  AGENT FOR:  AUSTIN CARS  SEIBERLING TIRES  INTERNATIONAL TRUCKS  HOME GAS & OILS  POWER SAWS by  HOMELITE & DISSTON  SALES -REPAIRS - PARTS - SERVICE  SECHELT - PHONE 27 5fe &u*i     HaJfmoonBay  ^ **w      ^^ v&wwmt,* b�� oar nwi.eii  DRBSS THEM IN COOL CASUALS  FOB SUMMER COMFORT  Ladies!

BY  CHUCK  TOMPKINiS  The talk around softball  circles is the rumoured withdrawal from the league of  Gibsons Firemen. This, as far  as I know, is still a rumour  although the league officials  have been notified of the Fire-  rmens intention. I cannot write  what I think, being manager of  the Firemen, but I will give  facts.  A few weeks agoi the Firemen played a double header  at. Pender. The Firemen suspected1 that a recently acquired  Pender player had ; not received' his transfer papers and  was not eligible to play. After  speaking with officials of the  Pender team the Firemen decided to play. They won the  first, so naturally did not protest, but losing the second they  notified the umpire in the  eighth inning that the game  was being played under protest. A check-up about one  hour after the game did not  uncover   any  signed   form  or  Phone Gibsons 53  GIBSONS BUN  SUPPLIES, LTD.  transfer for the player involved. The secretary and opposing manager were, then notified by mail that the game  was protested.  A four man protest committee decided j that the games  were to be replayed, later they  awarded one game to each  team, the reason . being that  the Firemen should have protested the first game too. As  anyone who plays ball knows,  you don't protest a game you  win, or do you?  Little League  Wilson Creek Orioles played  h|o4t to the Ptowell River  Pirates in "more ways than  one, and the many fans who  saw 'the game came away  with the firm convidtion that  they had missed many afternoons enjoyment through not  attending more of these interesting combats.  Wilson Creek had one good  inning in which they collected  .most^of their runs, but the  Pirates jogged along slowly  but surely, hailing down the  efforts .of the Orioles. It was a  very interesting game as the  outcome Would indicate, the  Powell River kids eventually  winning 7 to 5.  Taking the eye cf the fans,  Were   the   two   pitchers   who  bore   down   consistently,   and  were not responsible for most  of  the  runs scored. Then the  two pint sized catchers, hardly bigger than the bats which  were '   swinging in  front    of  them,     gave   an    Exhibition  which would have done credit  to a team of much older boys.  Eight year old Ray Rankin,  gave a creditable performance  as catcher for the Orioles, considering, that he was substituting for the regular catcher who  was on holidays.  After the games, excitement  ran high in the community  hall, wjhere mothers! of the  Wilson Creek boys had prepared a dinner for both teams,  and' the officials.  8    Coast News, July 12, 1956  The past three, weeks in  Magistrate Johnston's court  have featured a variety of traffic-regulation infractions, with  speeding leading: Ernest Cald-  walader, of Campbell River,  on Highway 19, Vancouver  Island1, James Ridock of ythe  same area, speeding with a  logging truck and trailery on  the Sechelt highway, George  Edward Meade and James  Henry Bell and Samuel Ged-  des of Vancouver and E.E.Coe  of Selma Park, speeding while  on holidays in the Kcotenays,  were each fined $25 and costs.
