May I express extreme pleasure at being asked to take part
in the graduation ceremonies &t
this high school — the Elphinstone Junior - Senior High
My pleasure and feeling "of
pride stems from the fact that,
35 years ago, the fates diredtfed
that I be a member of the firfcfc
graduating class from the first
high school at Gibson's Landing.
The present school, I understand, takes in a far larger district. Our high school was that
small, ancient building quietly
mouldering away in the farthest
corner of your . elementary
school grounds.
I started my schooling in that
very building in the First Primer a few years prior to the
First World War. It was located,
in those days, where the elementary school is nOw; surrounded on four sides by beautiful maples, ideally suited for
climbing and hiding it; beside
it, on the west side was a well
with a pump that squealed and
often needed priming — the
source of our drinking water;
on the east side, just over the
fence was a hollow cedar stump
—famous through the years as
a fort, a roosting-place at recess
and noon for those daring
enough to climb the rungs
spiked to the sides and leading
to platforms situated at various
levels within its fire-charred
Then came the need for a
larger school and our little
building was hooked to a team
of horses and was moved to its
present resting place where for
a space it remained vacant and
fell prey to the ravages of the
swashbucklers from the new
school who used it as a Bastille
to be stormed by the revolu-
tionah-es or a French fort to be
wrested from the defenders by

"Inflation tax" is a fairly accurate way" to describe the  shrinkage in the purchasing power of the dollar. It is the  Kind of tax which is imposed, at ..the same rate, oh the savings  of rich and poor alike.  The First National Bank of NY, in its Monthly Letter for  May, has worked out an interesting #ible to show What "inflation tax'^ does to people's savings. Suppose, for example,  that sflflfnebhe bought a US Savings Bond in 1941 for $75. The  ���bond, at maturity, in 1951, would have been worth $100. in-  some tax on the interest over the 10-year period, at the lowest personal income tax rate, would have been $5.10. So the  maturity value of the bond less income tax would have been  $94.90    "���';  The "inflation tax", however, over the same ten year period, would cbine to $41.13. Deduct this sum from the maturity  V3lue of the bond less income tax, and the real value of  the bond when it was redeemed in 1951, in; terms> of  ihe purchasing power of the 1941 dollar, comes to only $53,77.  Since the purchaser paid $75 for the bond in 1941, he has ac-  taally LOST $2,1.23 on his original investment.   :  Whether the dollars be American or Canadian', "inflation  tax" takes its hidden toll Few people realize how much "in-  flaion" they really pay. -The Printed Word  Modernization of CNR  Announcement by the Canadian National Railways of orders  ibr 163 diesel locomotives at a cost of some $30 million  Indicates CNR management's determination to maintain the  reputation of this country's railways for efficient, economical  rail transport.  Worth pondering, however, is what would happen to the  CNR, or for that matter to any other Canadian railway, if wage  costs become so huge that funds, for new and improved equipment were not available. Railway locomotives and rolling  stock wear out and have to be replaced, just like the family  automobile. And old- fashioned worn-out locomotives are just  as costly, inefficient, and uneconomical,. relatively-speaking, as  ^ld-fashioned worn-out automobiles.  Another aspect of the CNR's dieselization program worth  considering is the economies it can bring about in the matter  of train crew required. Not only are maintenance costs oh deis-  <eJs much less than on steam locomotives, but operating costs,  too, are much lower, because no fireman is required:  The prospect of not being required for service on locomotives is, one which, admittedly, is not particularly pleasing  to railway firemen. Neverthless, the fact that the changeover  to diesels is taking place gradually, and the fact that tb7e railways are providing alternative employment for men no longer  seeded as locomotive firemen^ should serve to remove any opposition to the necessary modernization of Canada's railways.  The teachers of ihe province say "good luck and  a bright future" to this month's school graduates!  B. C. education is a flexible, ever-changing process  which ha,s kept pa&e with the growth and development of Canada and the Province.-.-The ieachers  are grateful for our educational system and recognize thai ii is one of ihe finest on the "continent.  After years of classroom assocoaion with fthese boys  and girls, we rest assured thai British Columbia's  future is in good hands.

Present at the ceremony was  Capt. Herbert Raby, formerly  of Gibsons, who will take over  command of the ship when she  is delivered next August 10.  in appearance the Duncan  Bay is like an oil tanker, withr  engines and funnel aft, but  her holds have been specially  designed to carry pulp in liquid form from Duncan Bay  to processing plants in the  U.S. The Crown Zellerbach  Co. is thus 7 spared the necessity of doing its manufacturing in Canada.  The new ship is 587 feet overall, with a beam of 84 feet,  and a full loaded draft of 41  feet. She will have a gross  tonnage of about 13,000 and  a cargo capacity of 20,000  tons.  The Duncan Bay will have  a sea speed-of-15 knots, pro^  vided' by double reduction  geared turbines of 8500 shaft.  horsepower.  When completed the ship  will fly the Liberian flag, under the ownership of Universe Tankships, Inc., one of  the many companies control-  Jed by American shipping magnate D. K. Ludwig, who is owner of theyacht Danginn which  has been a frequent visitor  here.  The ship was built in the  former naval yard, at Kure,  which has Taeen leased by Mr.  Ludwig for ten years.  A remarkable feature of  Japanese ship-building is the  speed at which ships are being  produced. The keel of the  Duncan Bay was laid last  January 10, she was launched  on May 12, and she is due to  be delivered on August  10.

Pendintg completion of the  Duncan Bay, Captain Raby  has taken command of another  vessel for Mr. Ludwig. This  is the former oil tanker, TPan  Georgia, whtifch was converted  at Kure into a huge self-pro- ;  pelled dredge, called the Sea 7  Lane. ..-,���''������'���.

"Village Clerk  ' The attendance at the Municipal Officers' conference in  Victoria, has been steadily increasing since the first' time  1 'was there, some eighteen  years ago. This year . there  were 135 delegates present, representing 28 cities, 33 districts and 40 villages, besides  numerous government department people, and visitors from  various other bodies such as  ihe U'B.C, etc.  One fact stood out over the  whole conference, was that  far too much work was being  scheduled for too little time;  I think likdv that next year  there wil1. be at least three  days allotted; probably an increase in the registration fee  to $7; and just possibly the  conference held at some place  other than Victoria..  One cause of the extra work  was a study of the proposed  new Municipal Code; this  largely at the suggestion of the  U.B.C.M. It is the first time  that the Municipal Officers  were evr asked their opinion on legislation; previously  the idea seemed to be, that  those of fibers were not capable  ... of such advanced thinking ���  their's only to work the regulations as best they could.  The proposed  new  classifications were studied, and generally approved; I, of course,  paid more attention to Village  matters! The objection to the  term "Warden" for our chairman made at the Convention  last year was continued;  also  objection was made (strongly)  by myself) to the proposal that  the  chairman    be   separately  eleqted,  as I believe the present method of the Board appointing*their own  chairman  is imuch preferrable.    It was  suggested that perhaps      Villages,  and the new "Towns"  be  given'   power to    appoint  their own police officer- to enforce    their    bylaws.    There  seemed to be general      complaint that the R-.C.MJ?. were  not ��� enforcing local bylaws.  The proposal to change fiscal  year" closing  to Mach 31  was voted down, much to my  satisfaction. Tfibwever, I think  it will be  obligatory, for  the  board tQ adopt a preliminary . ,  expenditures by lav/,    in y No v-  ember   or  December  of   each  year, '*to cover   the first few  months of the next year, during the period! before the regular  bylaw   is   adopted:   This  seems   to   be   a   departmental  suggestion, and strikes 'me as  being a negation of the long-  established   principle  that   no  Board could undertake to control a  Board of a succeeding  year.  A good    deal  of time  was  spent on discussing "Finance"  ���'���'. but a  large    part -ot it. dealt  with municipalities much larg-  y er than ours. Actually, I think  we are doing fairly well; some  . of the places have very strict  and    comprehensive     p'roced-  /Gets Charter  The Merchants Credit associ-V  ation  has  received -its   official .  charter and is now operating, B.  L.     Cope,     secretary-manager,..,  announces.   Now that the asso-   i  ciation has spread from one end  .  to the other end of the Sunshine  Coast, merchants are now in a  position to keep tap on creditors  who    jump     about    obtaining  credit    without    making    any  effort to pay their old bills.  Sechelt News  Folks leaving the Porpoise  Bay area for other parts include the J. Bottoms, L. Stan-  tons, De Jongs, and the D.  Ross family.  Sechelt businesses have had  approaches to the road side  blacktopped. Many Gibsons  businesses and private owners  haye also done the same thing  while machines and crews of  Columbia Bithulithic Company  were in the area.  If you use pencil, ink, or any  other marker for plant labels,  just put a strip of scotch tape  over the name for permanent  legibility.  ures, in theory, but I think in  practice lots of Tilings "get  by".  I  think it  is possible that  our concern over the point of  becoming liable for social service costs when revenue reached  $12,500 per year may be  unnecssary  under     the    hew  Code; it is suggested that villages   and  towns  be  [entirely  relieved of these  charges, regardless of revenue. I got the  opportunity  to  object  to   the  P.TJ.C. dictation in respect to  utilities service outside [Municipalities. Ian Garven of Vernon and Sid Godwin of Courtenay both  told me they had  by no means withdrawn from  the  bat^e,   and  more  would  be heard.  There was quite a long discussion on possible changes on  voters list matters, preparation of bylaws and fire and  police functions, certification  of personnel, etc. Also a dis-  cussiotn of te municipal manager possibilities. Much of  this did not concerntt this Village very directly.  As usu&l, a period was  scheduled for the village representatives to. get together  to consider purely village matters;  but the matters    being  taken up at  the  main meeting had stretched out so much  that is was' past closing time  before the village  people  got  together, with the result that  though we did meet, very little  time was spent  and    we  really did nothing of interest..  To sum up, I would say that  these conferences are a very  ; useful institution/ enabling the  appointed  officers to learn a  great   deal   through,    matters  discussed    and    conversations  with   other -   officers.    ' This  year's    meeting    was perhaps  less< so than usual, because  a  lot of time was spent on' the  proposed new regulations; and  not knowing for sure just wliat  would finally be contained in  those regulations it was rather difficult to    make a    real  study of them.

Early  in   1955   the   general  public  were advised that  the  laws^ of  Canada  require  that  every   person,     with   the   exception of  wholesale and retail dealers, must register all  revolvers,    pistols  and    fully  automatic firearms in his possession.   This  did not  include  the ordinary type of rifle, shotgun  or  airgun.   The  response  to this notification .was  very  satisfactory,  the  R.C.M.P.   report,  but   there  still  remains  a  large   number   of   old  cer-  tficates that have not been renewed and this final warning  that all weapon owners, who  still    hold    certificates  dated  prior   to     Jan.   1   1952,    will  promptly take the    necessary  steps to properly register their  firearms,  It is also required that any  person, with tlie above exception, wishing to purchase a revolver or pistol or to receive  it into his possession by gift,  loan or any other means, must  first obtain the necessary authority from his local police  department before receiving  the firearm.  In accordanc with the a-  mendments to the Criminal  Code of Canada, a new type  of firearm registration certi-  cate has been in effect since  January 1952. For the. purpose  of re-registration 6ft ; this; new  type certificate all registered owners are now requested  to forward all copies of certificates in their possession bearing date of issue prior to 1952,  to The Commissioner, Royal  Canadian Mounted Police, Ottawa, Ont,. Attention,' Identification Branch.  In the event that copies of  certificates have become lost  or mislaid, it is requested that  the registered owner submit  the descriptions of the firearms , in his possession by lottery quoting '$^;hiake of firearm, calibre, 'serial nurnber,  number of shots... and .-barrel  length.

Fleming, 73, who  years ago lived on the Pratt  Ribiad'near Gibsons, in the  Goostrey house, died June 15  in Vancouver.    ��� ��� ���      \  Mrs. HelelnNicol Fleming  leaves her husband James;  two sons, James of Seattle  and David of Vancouver;  four - daughters, Mrs, Lena,  kitchen, Mrs. Robha Jenkin-  son, - Mrs. Jean Wright ��� and  Miss Mary, five grandchildren,  three sisters and a brother.  Funeral service was held at  2:15 p.m. Wednesday, June  20,     followed by    cremation.  Mr. and Mrs- Fleming lived  on Pratt Read mtaiy years,  during which time Mr. Fleming worked as a carpenter,  locally and in Vancouver. He  finally moved back with the  family to Vancouver in a-  bout 1938, selling his home to  Mr. Peters. After Mr. Peters'  death it was scid to Alex Goostrey.  Mrs. Fleming had a summer  home on Bowen Island, but  used also to visit Mr. and Mrs.  Kullander of    Gibsons    every  the British  or  the  Indians  as  ever-changing  whims  dictated.  Then it came to pass that a  certain enterprising principal���  by  some  magic we  were  unaware of, but possibly the taxpayers were���had the place outfitted and furnished as a gymnasium complete with ladders,  parallel bars, trapeeze, and the  like.   And  so  we   all  became  gymnasts���a brand of activity  we   readily   mastered   for   we  were monkeys at heart and had  trained long in the branches of  trees   (to say nothing-of  our  favorite stump!)  And then our little building  became a high school. I had .had  to remain out of school for a  year after finishing "public  school", there being no high  school to attend. During this  year my education conscious  tfather arranged that I take  mathematics from one of the  local teachers. The tuition fee  was paid in kind, as the economists say���potatoes in return  for maths instruction!  I do not recall how many  pupils commenced high school.  I do know how many graduated  in 1921 (and without benefit of  graduation ceremonies) I remember what a relief it was to  have finished school (my father had other plans) but there  was a period of anxious waiting for examination results  from a place called Victoria  where frost-bitten old inspectors with hard "knuckles marked the papers.  Finally the results. I never  did rank so well again ... I  stood second in the graduating  class .... of two! The other  graduate was Dr Inglis sister,  Kathleen.  I could go on at considerable ,.  length in this reminiscent vein,    Learn to do without the ever-  however, I am reminded that    present  automobile, except for  No electric light ��� only a  kerosene lamp.  Yes, times have changed. So  what of the poor graduate of  1956?  We earnestly hope, that the  school of to-day, which in keeping with the times has also undergone large-scale expansion  in terms of programme, plant  and modern facilities has done  right by its students.  Reduced to. simple terms the  task of education, to paraphrase Prof. Arthey Lower is  one of initiating the young into  the customs of the. "tribe" ���  tribe ��� of course meaning the  nation and the customs meaning  the "way of life" of our nation  and all that that implies.  It is our hope this evening  as we join together to wish  these young citizens of bur  tribe God-speed���that they will  have gained from their schooling and understanding of the  "way of Life" of this beautiful  land of ours and that some day1  ���in the fairly immediate future  ���they will take their part rrt  the shaping of an ever-improving way of life not only for  Canada but for the world beyond our national boundaries.  The experience and wisdom  of elder citizens argues loudly  for certain features for inclusion in a person's make-up in  order that that person's life  may be tolerably happy, reasonably healthy and moderately  productive.  I would . commend these  things to the young people who  are graduating and who will be  leaving for other worlds' to conquer.  First and foremost. Take good  care of your health. Poor health  makes life a misery and consequently cuts down on one's  usefulness to society for we  should each seek to be useful  rather than purely ornamental.  vpsr.  this is not. the time nor the  place, nor the occasion, so let's,  thereforej take a jump in time  and hasten to the present and  3oin.intsiinple but sincere fajsh,-  ion in. doing honor to the graduating class of 1956.  It is trite and seemingly un-  ��� necessary to say that -, the world  is vastly different to-day from  what it was "when we were  young" or when our "grandfathers were barefoot boys" ���  but we,do have to remind ourselves of this fact in order to  avoid the risk of applying  prescriptions to to-day's problems that seemed so effective  in days gone by.  More words are all too inadequate to describe the progress in the economic sphere������ ���  the machines, the power plants,  the ships, the planes, electronics, atomic power, electric  eyes, the automobiles, the  seven ferries to Gibsons!-���All  these and a million other things  have been added to our lives.  The tempo of living has increased. People, like ants in  summertime, are in a perpetual  rush and state of agitation, but,  unlike the ants, their movements are, all too often, productive Of frustration borne of  inability to comprehend the  nature of things as they are.  Our senses are - bombarded by  a million stimuli, our nervous  mechanism take a severe beating in vain attempts to face up  to the "daily round" ��� we find  it difficult to part things out in  our minds.  The newspapers, the radio,  the television,' the magazines,  the comic strips, the digests  keep us up to the minute on affairs from all over the world.  We take sides in the struggles  between the Cyperiots and the  British; the Morrocans and the  French; the Arabs and Jews;  the Russians and the Ameri^-  cans, the North Koreans and the  South Koreans. We suffer abdominal or heart pains with  Eisenhower; we applaud or  commiserate with Grace Kelly.  All of this at the very moment  of happening. ,  Such is life to-day. It wasn't  like that when I was young.  No radio or TV���only books and  reading and . discussions with  parents, friends and neighbours  ���or home-made fun.  No car���only a slow horse or  a second hand bicycle.  long jyurneys. Walking, we all  agree, is one of the most complete exercises; milk one of the  most complete foods; sleep (at  the approved times, of course)  the finest restorer of broken-  down body cells.  Second and probably equal  in importance with the first,  may I urge that you develop  convictions. Be it a staunch religious belief, a philosophy of  life, political preference ��� our  "way of life" is only as good  as we collectively, with our  beliefs and convictions can  make it; A convictionless person  is like a rudderless ship at the  mercy of the elements ��� composed and at ease when the  sea is composed ��� lost, bewildered, baffled, pushed this  way and thatxwhen the ocean is  in turmoil.  I say to you young people  there is no finer sheet-anchor  when the going is tough then a  well founded body of conviction.       -  And finally ~ try to avoid  becoming too possession conscious. This is a very materialistic world in which we live  and one can readily and understandably subscribe to values  that are false.  yalues that are deep-rooted  rather than superficial and  purely materialistic are the only  ones that can sustain an individual or a nation.  The enduring life-sustaining  values  are spiritual in  nature.  Civilized life-sustaining values are spiritual in nature.  ���Civilized and civilizing human relations are founded on  these.  A part at least of each of our  lives should be spared for enhancing our civilization.  . A spirit of service founded oa  spiritual values must be a part  of every person's make-up, ih  order that the richer rewards of  life may be enjoyed.  Think on these, I ask you.  May I wish you well for alt  3'our various journeys.  Sechelt News  Visitors to Porpise Bay ar��  Mrs. H. Newcomen, a former  resident who is staying with  Mr. and Mrs. T. Robilliard.  Mrs. A.

The Apostle Peter dealt with  this situation. And he did it  tactfully. He advised the women not to enter into arguments that would lead to bitterness and misundersanding. They  would be more likely to ; influence their husbands, he said,  if they did it by their quiet influence, "Without controversy".  Here then, according to Peter,  is the most effective method of  winning people to Christianity;  without a lot of discussion and  debate  but using the example  of a good life.  *     ��      *  Goodness is attractive. Many  would, contradict that statement. They point to the long line  of fine people who have been  persecuted- and sometimes killed because of their devotion  to truth. That, of course, is true,  but facing our modern'' world  as we see it most people, recog-.  nize goodness and respect it.

The first Port Mellon Guide  Company and the Brownies  with their leaders and members of the local Association  were the guests of Mrs. C.B.  Davies to tea at her home on  Friday afternoon.  The   last  Guide   meeting  of  the   season   was   a   party  for  Guide   Barbara   Norman  who  will be leaving at the" end of  the    school    term to    live  at  Campbell     River.

Last Saturday  the  1st Port  Mellon and 1st Gibsons Guide  Companies spent e happy day  together   on   Gambier    Island  The   Port   Mellon      Company-  were  taken  to  New Brighton  by Mr. ,S. Peterson in his the  "Fidelia". :The   Guides  hiked  across  the. island  to  Gambier  Harbour "  where     they     had  lunch  and five Guides passed  their   camp fire  test.   Returning    to    New    Brighton    the  Guides practised  stalking    in  the    forest,.went     swimming  and had supper on the beach  before   Mr.. Peterson   brought  them home again at 6:30 p.m.  man who got out his Bible and  insisted on reading it out aloud  until I know there were a number of people who were  provoked.   He   was - parading   his  religion in an acrimonious way  and I could see many passengers  resented  it.  I  thought  of  that  saying of Emerson's: "What you  are  sounds   so   loudly   that   I  cannot hear what you.say."  *'     .*      ���'���.-'..  Good people ought-to-be winsome and attractive, if they are  not one is led to question the  depth of their religion. Religion  which   makes   people   peevish,  irritable  and  intolerant  surely  cannot be the religion of Jesus.  Religion ought to. make people  kind,     considerate,     charitable  and cheerful; willing to see the  best   in   people   arid   ready   to  give credit for good motives.  I once heard a lady say about  an old preacher: "He is so kind  he would be willing to say a  good word for the devil." That  was a fine trait of character; on  the other hand it is true, as  Rev. James Keller says:  "When religious people are disagreeable it is a  sure sign  of  weakness."  *   . *     *  Years ago I knew a man who  used to speak at street corners  in Toronto. He said he was an  atheist and his speeches were  savage attacks on religion. He  was a forceful speaker and I  heard him several times. Then  I missed him and after a time  asked a friend of his where he  was, he answered: "Our atheist  went to Australia and took a  great fancy to a Baptist minister  there. It let to his conversion.  Now he is a devoted Christian  worker." I was greatly surprised  but I need not have been. Arguments would never have  changed . this man's point of  view and I do not suppose for  a minute that it was the sery  mons of this Baptist minister  which influenced him. It was  the man's personality: "He took  a fancy to him."  *     .*.'���-*  I don't know. anything more 7  depressing  than   to  meet  reli-,'-  gious   people   who   .were   once  good-natured* genial and cheer-;  ful and to find .them sour, mor-,  ose and fault-finding. It makes  me wonder what on earth, has  happened   to   bring, about  the.  change.  It is riot true religion  Deer  damage  can be checked  You  ' ;Forf.;Wforipof7M/;Wrni7w7',7",'^7.

First,  turn current off. Then press  the end of the cork onto the  base of the broken bulb and  turn the cork counter-clockwise.   That does it!  Deer, as part of the landscape,  can look most picturesque but  the damage they do to cultivated crops can offset any natural  ��� beauty they have. It is gratifying to- knpw; that their eating  habits can - be checked by the  use of deer repellents but the  size of the deer population and  local habits are factors which  must also be considered.  During the summer of, 1955  one or more deer in a small  apple orchard close to the ex-  . perimerital: farm at Saani'cHton,  were, according to the superin- -  tendent, J. J. Woods, causing  damage to the trees by browsing ori the new terminal-  growths.   .'  The use of a repellent to stop  this eating seemed worthwhile  so some benzine hexachloride  was dusted lightly, on to the terminal growths. No further eating in dusted areas was noticed  until there were several inches  of. new growth on the trees.  When feeding was again started  a further" dust application was  given and the value of the product was again proved.  Benzine hexachloride is a  commercial insecticide and can  be obtained as a five per cent  dust at about $2.50 for 20  pounds. When applied lightly  to terminal growth of trees only  a few pounds would be needed  for an acre. Considering rain  and new growths, up to perhaps  six applications would be needed in a season.  that makes them turn somersaults like that ��� although they  may think it is. The grace of  God rieyer 7 made 7any man ybr  woman like a sour crabapple.  Jesus suffered all' that anyone  could but even on the cross he'  prayed for those who crucified  'him. And it is the power;yof  that love that draws men to him.  I read.of a little girL whose  mother asked her what she was  praying for. The child replied:  "I was. praying, that .all bad  people would be good and all  good people nice."  Our-quotation today is about  roses: "We must learn to show  roses as well as grow them."

On "salad days" this summer,  never freshen greens, for more  than 15 minutes or they will become soggy.    It also helps .to  add a few cubes of ice to the  water.   :   Green     leaf     salads  should, be dressed at the veoiy  last  minute    or  they  will  be  cooked by the vinegar.    Even  five minutes too soon makes a'  big difference.   Other vegetable  salads should be kept in dressing for at least an hour before  serving.  , -.. .  /  ��v#  &-  WIZARDS  SHCC       ' STC>EE  EVERY kim Of SHOE  FOR ALL WE FAMILY  PROMPT ATTENTION TO MAIL ORDERS  Phone 25G Seehelt  Only McCulloch offers complete choice  of size, power, weight, and price, plus  first-class, service through a nationwide  chain of factory-authorized dealers.-.  ��� *���;'���'!$���:  ���    World's ��W0��t  ���  chain mw bwild��r  t" ���  I  \,:-.:.--.vi-m V  *T/vXti-  PHONE 11  Af*fy;:yy'  ^ric^A^XfA  .��i(pHELT.  . ��� '���'.',:.';j'"f"-.,"'gii-'  FASTEST ACROSS THE STRAIT  VANCOUVER-HANAIHflO  FEftftlE$ LEAVE EVERY TWO HOURS ON THE  EVEN HOUR, 6 A.M.-MIDNIGHT,  FROM BOTH HORSESHOE BAY AND NANAIMO  "    irt 6ltfnj%j 10/12 noon, 2 pm, 4,6,6,10,1 % mid.

Proper preparation for summer holidays can effectively  save lives, according to the All  Canada Insurance Federation.  Officials of the Federation,  which represents more than 200  fire, casualty and automobile  insurance companies, said that  half of all drownings occur in  June, July ahd August, and that  the average summer cottage  contains more fire hazards than  most other locations.  According to insurance experts, most summer' tragedies  are the fault of carelessness and  inadequate safety measures.  They recommend the following  precautions for the holiday season:  1. Adequate fire fighting  equipment should be kept on  hand at all vacation locations..  2. Cottage   chimneys   should  , be  thoroughly   cleaned  at  the  beginning  of   the season,   and.  equipped   with   spark   screens  and reflectors.  3. Floors and" walls near  heaters and stoves should be reinforced with galvanized iron,  concrete or brickwork.  4. Pipes passing through partitions or walls should be fitted  with metal guards or collars.  57 Grass, brush and small  trees near the cottage should be  trimmed frequently.  6. Clear out rubbish and inflammable materials from  woodsheds and other outbuildings.  7. Never leave oil lanterns on  tables or floors; always shut  lanterns off when leaving cottage.  8. Consult local health department for information on  artificial respiration, water  purification, garbage disposal  and other safety measures.  9. Never swim alone.

Be&tdfy by toe wm\m ALL  Secheli  Roberts  Creek BY CHUCK  TOMPKINS  Softball is once again going full blast on the Peninsula and the fans are being  treated to some real thrillers.  Last Thursday the Firemen  swamped Wilson Creek 13-4  in a better game than the  score indicates. The Wilson  Creek first ' baseman, Qick  Gaines was given the heave-  by umpire Fred Holland in  -the first inning. I believe in  umpires running the game  the way it should be but I  also believe they should take  as firm a stand on some of the  actual rule infractions in the  games. Rule books help.  Port Mellon beat Pender  17-4 last Thursday and the  pulp town boys, who up until  this year have been anything  hut a hard hitting club, are  putting a lot of wood on he  ball   this  year.  On Sunday the Firemen and  Port Mellon split a double  header. Port Mellon rallied in  ninth and came from behind  to edge out the Firemen 10-7  In the night game the Firemen squeezed but Port Mellon  4-2. This game saw a two run  homer by Port Mellon catcher, Red Addison, that is, I  think, the longest ball hit  this year.  The Merchants lost a close  6-5 game to, Pender on Sunday,  and dropped a 7-1 decision to  Roberts Creek  BY MRS. M.

Breakwater for Roberts Creek  Little League  Sunday, June 17, at Wilson  Creek the Gibsons Firemen  and Wilson Creek Orioles  played another close and well  fought game with the Orioles  emerging on the top, 8 to 7.  The lead changed hands several times and in the last inning of a tie ball game, Orioles  with one gone came through  when George .Oike singled  and Harry Gaines doubled to  push across the winning run.  Batteries were: Firemen, Pet-  erson.Coates and Wilson.  Orioles: Crucil, McSavaney,  Fisher and Gaines.  June 17, at Sechelt the game  between the Pender Harbour  Tyees and the Sechelt Cubs  was won by the Tyees by a  default. Both teams were on  hand for the game but the  manager and coach of the  Cubs failed to appear. This  was quite a let down for the  youngsters.  On Thursday June 14, the  Gibsons Firemen visited Port  Mellon, defeating a much im?  proved Port Mellon team 5-2.  Batteries: Firemen,-. Lowden,  Coates and Wilson^ The Port  Mellon pitcher was Gant.  Little Leaguers now play  fine baseball and deserve  much more support than the  dozen fans that turn out.
