Cpl   Cummins    said  he    was    approximately    120  yards behind them at the Davis Bay-Hill. The cars,continued  at 85 mph and sometimes faster with ��� about 20 feet  separating the two cars with    the  RCMP Tear  striving t0     overtake them, the Corporal said.  At approximately the    motel  along side the   highway,  Cpl.  Cummins.turned ort his warning    siren.    Asked later by a  juryman why, he had not done  it 'before he said it was no use  as cars going at    that    speed  would not hear a siren unless  it was close to them. He was  also asked why    he had    not  stopped them    after    leaving  Selma Park and replied it was  not wise   to   halt cars on    a"  curve but to wait for  a fairly straight stretch-  The, corporal continued his  story of the chase by saying  that just about the time he  turned oh his siren he lost  sight of the cars on the turn  going towards the bridge Seconds later, he said* he saw a  flash.and' oh approaching the  spot saw one car off the right  sideyof the road; lying on its  right .side with the front end  facing the water.

Cpl. Cummins said Phair seemed to be O.K. so he looked for  the other car whilh was a  short distance farther on. He  opened a door of the car and  said he could see the man was  Williams, whom he knew, and  that he was dead-  Describing what happened,  hased oh ai complete check;:he  told thefcoroner and jury,'that  at Sechelt  BY MRS.

The first demonstration was  a rope rescue from shore, for  a subject not too! far out in the  water. It was explained this  method shouJd be used if the  rescuer is not a good swim-^  mer.  A demonstration ot the evolution of swimming was shown  by different performers    from  the    dog-paddle    to the    now l  widely used crawl stroke.  The.

He was forced  over t0 the side of the road  and "could not do anything  else."  Coroner McKee asked whether Phair was watching the  other car in his rear view mirror and he said he was. Phair  said the other ear tried to pass  not far from the corner. He  could not tell his speedy, because his speedometer Twas  broken. He added that he was  afraid to brake for fear of hitting him (the car following)  Answering questions from  the jury, Phair said he first  saw the car on the Sechelt  side of Selma Park then did  not notice him again until he  was on top of me."        ���  Cpl. Cummins of the RCMP  said he was on patrol in vicinity of the School road, west  of Sechelt when three cars  passed.yHe followed them and  one turned! off the highway so  he continued behind the other  two. The time was approximately 11.40 p.m. ��� The cars  were moving fast but not at  excessive speed. Passing  through Sechelt the two cars  continued towards Selma Park. It wa then, he said, h��  clocked the two remaining cars  at 55 mph. They went through  the Selma Park 25 mph. zone  at 38 mph. The rear, har was  about 20 feet behind the first  car. . *  off the pavement and in its  momentum had struck an 11  inch thick phone pole a glancing blow then went another  18 feet and struck a 15 1 - 2  pole which, toppled thus breaking the power line This car,  from which Phair' emerged,  finished up on its side.  The Williams car, he said,  travelled a little further along  the highway before it went off  the road and ploughed 73.8  feet over brush and logs before coming to a stop. H*3  . noted that the left front side  of the car was smashed with  the left post and part of the  top demolished.  The broken pole, he said,  which was based six feet off  the highway "finished up en  the other side of the highway  59.8 feet from its base.  Answering    jury    questions  . Cpl   Cummins  said it  impossible for cars to negotiate that  turn, at that speed;  Dr. McKee  in    reading the  autopsy report   said  Williams  had suffered a broken    skull  and    that  a    blood    analysis  showed .1-1  alcohol content.  7   Members of  the jury were  Charles    Bookman.,    foreman;  Victor S.

B  Where to spend one's holiday is a point many people  strive to decide annually and sometimes hit the jackpot and  come up with the best holiday they have ever,had.  It does not always work that way, however. Sometimes  the anticipated conditions do not exist. Travel folders have  a way of arousing one's anticipation but something" is lacking in the realization.  British Columbia is one province which contains  holiday spots galore and judging from reports heard in  Vancouver, the attraction of the wide open spaces in British Columbia have their lure this year because camping  gquipment is hard to get. ��  This is as it should be. British Columbians are the first  people to extoll the virtues of their territory but when it  -comes to putting into practice what they say of their own  province, with some is a horse of another color.      "?*'"  There is no other city in Canada with so much holiday  resources at its back and front doors, than has Vancouver.  Yet there is that urge to join the snake-like solid lines of  traffic to fields that seem greener, simply, because they are  in the United States. The scenery they have along the  Pacific coast, except for the area to the far south is little,  different to what we have here.  Why waste it! Why not utilize it to the full. Take for instance, the Sunshine Coast. There is no better vacation  spot anywhere in Canada. Why do Americans come to this  area and repeat their visits in their palatial yachts and  cruisers? Something more than Black Ball or any other  company's travel publication has done it. The Sunshine  Coast need take a back seat to no other area in this respect.  Some day soon Porpoise Bay area is going to be a mecea  for vacationists. It has everything a big company like the  C.P.R. or C.N.R. would desire as talking points.  All this leads to the provincial government campaign to  have British Columbians spend their holidays in their own  province. This is as it should be. There are many people in  Vancouver area who have lived there many, many years  who still regard Howe Sound and the Sunshine Coast area  as some place for visitors to see via Union Steamship lines.  Which all goes to prove a considerable number of people  in this province are acquainted with so little of its superior, vacation potentiality. The government deserves credit  for reminding British Columbians of the possibilities not fai^from their,door. ,73*  FIGHTERS AND PEACE  Most men who are most anxious for peace have been in  the armed services, i.e. returned men, Every peace  movement I know is headed  by veterans. No doubt if another war came, many * would  foe in uniform again, but the  perils of war, the suffering andN  disruption, have created a reaction to war Which has caused  them to feel there must be a  bettef way to settle national,  disputes. This attitude does not  mean that they lack loyalty,  but their experiences have made  them tolerant andthey have  been disappointed with the  outcome. They know that courage is not confined to any  one country and that every  nation has its heroes. When  all the fighting is over, men  must sit around a table    and  settle things. "  *     .*      *  Recently I saw a picture of  the Civil War in the United  States and when it was oyer  the men in both armies embraced each other, and men  like the defeated General R.3S7  Lee wese honored by the  North. Each army respected  [and honored the other. Here  is a deeply moving story of a  man who is still living.  One evening in May, 1921,  & vast audience filled Queen's  Hall in London, England, to  hear  a famous   violinist:  The  musician, who had been an  officer in the Austrian army,  received a tremendous ovation, the applause continuing  for 15 minutes, /without a  break. One of the ablest of  English critics said: " We  shall never see the like a-  gain." The musician was  Fritz Kreisler, probably, the  greatest violinest in the world .^  He was facing an audience Of  people against whose soldiers  he had fought only a few  years previously, and their  applause wSs a warm tribute,  not only to his great skill,  but to his manliness and lovable personality.  *     *     *  Kreiser was born at Vienna  in 1875, the son of a physician.  At the age of ten he'' gained  first prize at the Vienna Conservatory of Music, and four  years later he won distinction  at Paris. He toured the United  States when he was 14. Although he was-warmly received and much praised, he himself was not satisfied with his  playing. He returned to Europe to resume his musical  studies. practising several  hours each dajr in order to  gain perfection.  When the first World War  broke out, he joined his regiment at Vienna. Enlisting for  him meant much. He was  known the world over as a  violinist, and the loss of an  arm or even a finger would  mean the shatterinv of his pro-  misiny career.The idea of war  was hateful tb him, but when  his country called, he felt it  was his duty to obey. He was  sent to Galicia, an officer and  his trained musical ear enabled  him t0 tell, by the peculiar  whine of the shells, from just  whic direction they came.  *      ���      ��  One day two Russians carrying a white flag walked  over t0 an Austrian sentry,  who brought them to his superior officer. Not understanding Rusian, the man sent for  Kreisler to act as interpreter.  The Russian told him that they  had not had any food for several days, and. that they and  their comrades were on .the  point of starvation. Not oeing  able to stand their misery  any longer, they risked their  lives by walking into the  Austrian camp to tell their-  plight.  The Austrian major hardly  knew what to do. but when  he and Kreisler looked into  the sad worn faces of the Russians, they soon made up  their minds. They sent messengers for help, and immediately Austrian soldiers gathered more food for these men  and their comrades than they  could carry. Looking as if it  were all too good to be true'  the Russians sat down before  a feast of canned beef, cheese,  biscuits, and chocolate, while  around them vst(ood< Austrian  soldiers,   greatly  enjoyng   the  unusual situation.  *  *  *  After  his   discharge,   Kreisler played at scores of concerts  for benevolent  purposes, glad-  ;ly    giving  his   gteat  sevices  without a  fee. The war    had  2    Coast News, August 2, 1956  meant much suffering for; musicians and artists, many of  whom were in desperate circumstances. Kreisler supported  no fewer than fifteen hundred  artists and musicians, by his  marvelous playing y.y  Above everything else,-  Kreisler is a lover of other  people, no matter of what  nationality. Wars have been a  source of unspeakable sorrow  to him. If ever there was any  bitterness in his heart - - and  it is hard to think that there  ever could be - - it has "died  out, and he is a messenger of  good will wherever he goes.  He once said: "No man can  accomplish great things in  life unless he L-as a heart full  of love."  Our quotation today is by  R.P. Dowries: The tragedy Of  war is that milions of men  fight each other yet there is  no personal animosity.

Minimum wage  for camp staffs  The Honourable Lyle Wicks,  Minister of Labour, announces  that the Board of Industrial  Relations has revised the minimum wage and* working conditions applicable to employees working in any. kitchen,  dining-room, cook house, bunk  house or recreation room  operated in connection with  any industrial undertaking in  unorganized territory.  As of Sept. 1st, 1956, .the  minimum wage has been increased from 80c to $100 per  hour. Employees in the occupation are required to be  paid time and . one-half their  regular rates of pay for hours  worked in excess of 191 hours  in a calendar month. An employee whose services are  terminated! during a month in  which he has not worked 191  hours will -be paid overtime  for hours worked during that  month in excess of 8 in the day  and-44 in the week.  Due to the nature of the  occupation which often involves working in extremely  isPlated areas where it is not  always possible to obtain relief in order to give employees  timfe off, provision is made in  the order for the board to  vary overtime conditions pursuant to joint application by  the parties  The minister stated' that the  existing order, by promoting  the . principle of one day's  rest in seven, had served a  very useful purpose in that  many employers with large  camps had put their employees  ion a six-day week resulting  in increased opportunities for  employment in that line of  work. 6    Coast Ntws, August 2. 1956  At the Pacific National Exhibition in Vancouver this  year   a Spelling Bee is  being  Sponsored by the Vancouver  Council of Women.

Also  there  is  the secretary who is probably  the only person  on this Peninsula, who is willing to spena  his time and trouble in an effort to keep the M.P.S. League  in running order   I    know of  at least two  teams that have  been saved from    disbanding  through his efforts.  Getting back to your column, you infer " The governing body of the league is in a  weak state." Well, the decision they came to was in conformity with the B.C. constitution There was no other  way  out.  At the second meeting when  you could bring no further  proof that your protest should  be granted, they stood by  their guns. Is that weakness?  When you say these men  were lenient, Is that a crime?  You were, one of the number who elected these men to  office. You als0 advocated  playing under the rules and  constitution of the B.C.A.S.A-  but when somehing of this  nature happens you have not  the courage of your own convictions. You have not the intestinal fortitude to stand by  your own commitments. Why  should you be always right and  the other fellow, always  wrong? Let me quote a saying by the Little Leaguers,  winning a ball game is only  secondary to playing the game.  In conclusion, as far as next  years election of officers is  concerned, you need not  worry because I would gamble  -that four out of five of the  committeemen have forgotten  more about the game and its  rules than you ever knew, a-  ccording to your record, this  past twQ years.  Regarding your desire for  the welfare of the tired soft-  ball officials, this may be taken quit�� literally from now  on as their future will be  guite free from worry, and a  new era in softball is on the  horizen I only hope they ignore your pitiful insult, it was  pretty weak.

By a score of 12-6 the Wilson Creek team swing into the  1956 play-offs. They will represent zone six in games  with zone seven, which take  in Bowera Island, North Vancouver and district.  In their  last game  of    the  league  season,  Wilson    Creek  displayed spasmodic periods of  real ball  against  the  Sechelt  club,  and  although the  latter  came to life occasionally they  did not stay long enough with  it to make it really interesting.  However, if the Creekers  anticipate    going to the    round  robin play-offs via North Vancouver they will need  to buckle their armour much firmer  than it is at the  presnt time  and it will do well to remember  that  the  un-earned  run   - column will not favor them,    in  future playoff  games as mch  as it has done s�� in the past.  However,  the team    deserves  congratulations in winning the  league.  PJhyoffs for the Osborne  Trophy are as follows: .1, Sechelt vs Merchants, Aug".2nd,  and a double-header Sunday  Aug. 5.  2.
