Barnum, in his most enterprising,      moments,       never  ..." ^  dreamed pf a show on-the scale  ��� of. the British Columbia Centennial celebrations in 1958. -. ;  A new kind of "spectacular"  in - "super-centennialscope"-. is  the way the celebrations, .-'are  depicted by Larry H. McCance,  executive secretary of the B.C.  Centennial committee.  Mr.   McCance  sees  the  celebrations   encompassing  "a  cast  of 1,500,000 persons on a stage  of   over   300,000   square   miles,  with   thousands-   -of    beautiful,  natural settings."  ������' Outling    the    organization of  the province-wide  100th birthday part3% the centennial secretary said that over 300 persons  were    currently,  . doing    active  volunteer duty with the 17 provincial     sub-committee's,    " and:'  forecast that the organization of  community centennial committees would eventually see this  figure climb to "5,000, pr more."  Urging support by all community service organizations,  Mr.7McCance; pointed out that  the celebrations could only succeed if there is full participation  by every,organization in every  community.  Primary objectives of the  celebrations, Mr. McCance said,  will be to honor the pioneers in  ���each community; to put on display' local culture, arts, crafts  and special attractions; to exploit natural resources; a new  opportunity for industry  through exhibits, open houses  and fairs; and���most of all���to  make the year 1958 a mammoth  family birthday party, with  thanksgiving for the 100 years  .that are past, and a .period of  "inspired reflection" on what  the future can and will bring.  Scholarship  to G Slinn  George N. Slinn of Gibsons  was one of the two winners  of the continuing scholarships  given by General Motors of  Canada, Ltd. These scholarships are worth $800 the first  year, the University of B.C.  reports.  Anne Marriott McLellan . of  Squa'mish was one of two winners of a $30 prize in creative'  writing, donated by the Leon  and Thea,1 Koerner foundation.  The same Information Service advises that among those/  receiving degrees and diplomas  from Chancellor Lett Friday  Oct. 26 are Mrs. Cloe I. Day  of Gibsons, who has won her  B.A. second clas, and Donald  Ross Goodale. of Squamih, his  B'.Sc. in Agriculture, second  class.  ber of Commerce, said ythe best  advertising value for merchants  will be in the official centennial  book, but. that city merchants  and businessmen should check  carefully to see that any solicitors ' for advertising or other  assistance have full and proper  credentials. He pointed out  that there will be many efforts  to exploit the centennial by the  issuance of souvenir booklets  and programs, and urged that  solicitors be checked by a phone  call to the chamber office.

Suitor: It is pleasing to note  the work of Dick McKibbin  asd his hard working committee is going ahead so well in  aadeavoring to sponsor good  amsical entertainment for our  sSstrict.  Music in my humble opinion, is one of the best antidotes  ���wei have today for countera*ct-  ' sag; the myriad evils besetting  "__y  May I as briefly as possible,  s&azisistent   with   some   understanding,     outline   the    work  done  in  Wales   by  their two  annual   Eisteddfods?    (Musical  ' competitive       entertainments)  ..Mir-many decades the Eisteddfod.' has   been held   in Wales,  aneethig  alternately  in  North  .and South.  T&& years ago in the village  a��' Rlangollen, with a. population of 3,000, a group got toge-  ���Saer and organized an. International Festival. -When one  aeads of the almost incredible  asxziess of this venture, it  Jfectfewith demonstrates the ex-  eeWsnt work carried on by the  jararaoters.      "  ISxs first year a .Yugo-slav  ehoir won f>ho chief choral  ewsnfe, We find an old; Italian  aoaeatro selling his much priz-  istiR grand piano to help pay the  face* of his choir -to the festival.  Tlie andience forthwith mak-  :_sg �� splendid collection when  Jhey learned. of .what had tak-  i2K2 place. This- -year a young  Spanish lady was away ahead  Sa. the soprano class.  'BEio? little village at night.is  3Eeg?_fed with music", and dailc-  anfeyShe spirit being positively  SiEfeictious. The gathering; itimel  seems,  all  too  short,   visitors,T,  _mh_J natives alike are ylojipang^  Sofeaiard to the next meeting;  ISrsSiiis way extraordinary fine  ijfcfeidish ips are cemented.  TAiid be it remembered it is  .sb* just high sounding revel-  ajgr, feut talent of the highest  ���artfer,   flowing like  the tones  of a nightingale completely  unaware of world political rivalry  This year a pensioners'  choir only together a few  months won in their class,  their conductor 82 years old.  I read of another group that  had been together for decades  with singers up to 77 years of  age among them.  One of the momentous happenings this year in the Nation  al festival, was the withholding of the Chair and Crown in  the drama competition. One of  the adjudicators responsible  for the withholding of the  award said in part "The groan  of disappointment made one  feel momentarily 'like a wicked uncle who had robbed an  expectant little child of a  brand new toy.  "For those of us who are actively interested in Welsh drama the disappointment went  deeper than the superficial  loss- of some picturesque ei-  sted'dfodic pageantry."  Another 83 year old Arch-  'druid in a witty and consoling  speech told how important it  was that the standard of poetry  shodid hot be lowered.  Thus we see the adjudica-  jtors ��� as we have seen them.  in our Vancouver festivals ~  1 orthrightly' criticising With. a  view to promoting the "highest  possible standards. .  The more we ��� promote music, especially by taking part in.  it rather than just listening,  the more we cultivate harmoniousrelationships7 no matter  hpw cosmopolitan the:, people.

Pokey Joe wras squinting at  the sun from the end of an  enormous fir log just about submerged with one end oh the  beach, and me, poking along  the beach spotted him "from  way back. Needing to be'cautious I took my time to. get  close enough to have a^close  inspection of Pokey as he is  quite a shy mug and he is';well  aware of his importance in the  scheme of things at Ruby'iake.  Of course Joe shouldny;_ be  here. He is from prehistoric  times and his nearest kin is ih  some lakes in Nevada. Turtles  of Pokeys mien are not readily  talkative and confining j and  respect must be duly established. .���:.������!;.  I says to Pokey, how you doing now? Aw, he says, swinging round  a' bit,  being  poised  for a take off, not bad,. notjbad.  You slept .well I take it? p  Oh   yes,   I   always   do^you  know, says I. You seem to wear'  well.   Them   figures   on ^your  back is kinda-curious.  Yes they are, ain't they, says  he. You ain't the first one to  see em neither, I wasn't much  smaller than I am now when in  1916 a feller with a jabknife  carved the numbers and- his  initials on my back without .a  by your leave or. any thing*  I take it, then there was some  goings on round here then, I  says. Yep says Pokey there was  a logging camp right here and  them logs'in ;the lake. and. the  stumps roundabouts ; a^STythe  teyidence.   .    :r;-\X:t.Xj-,y.yX\  Well' TPokey, yliets hear all  about it, you ain't; in ^np| hurry  are you? Well, I am arid hain't,  you^keep iyours distance a��jd I ���  might tell you. something of  those days, as there is all kind  of conjectures as ,to who was  here arid how come these logs  are still here. Pokey goes on as  follows:  They moved in here in the  spring and the first thing we"  knew they were coming round  the bluff with a steel, laying"  gang it was going to be a' railroad show you see: Next thing  there was trees coming dbwn  here and there. You remember  them fallers don't you, Snuffy  Joe, and Long Angus, with'Old  Gus the bucker. Well One morning smoking round the corner  of the bluff comes the old 9X10  steam pot'with a block and a  half on her and leaking steam  all over with Limpy Louie  standing on the sled spitting  snoose right and left. Dp you  remember that old crew?!Well  thats a bit hard, but I do re-  .member nobody got paid.  Well anyway, they spptted  the old pot at the beach facing  up one of the gullies and it was'  soon poking logs in the lake.  I .says to Ppkey, things are  quite different now; Yes he  says, and a good job too. Them  ground lead loggers hadn't got  brains.  .COMOX ASSESSMENT    AND COLLECTION DISTRICT  I HEREBY GIVE NOTICE that, on Monday, the 5th day  of November,   1956, at the hour of  10.30 o'clock in the forenoon, at the Court-house, Courtenay, B.C., I will sell at public auction  the Crown-granted mineral claims in the list he reinafter set out, of the persons in said list hereinafter set out for all DELINQUENT AND CURRENT taxes due and unpaid by said persons on  ���Sfee date of tax sale, and for interest, costs, and expenses, including the cost of advertising said  cafe if the total amount of taxes due up to and including the year 1954, and interest thereon, toge-  ^herwith  costs of advertising  said sale, be not sooner paid.

It came as a   surprise, and:    something    of    a  6_wckyswh6n: it was. discovered;  that less than 15 percent had  any clear-cut ideas about their  future.   Like   Micawber,   they  felt sure that something would  tum tip, but they had no definite aiins.

The late Dr.  W. L. Watkinson said that tbkt  divisions   of society  are, to a  large  extent,  atae to the fact  that some pfeople: thnkof the.  future,    deny    and   discipine  themselves for its sake, while  others live for the present like  Efeau, who sold his birthtight  (for one good meal.

Lutz made.a lot of alterations  and improvements arid introduced a self-serve system. The  Union Oil Company, now B.A.  Oil, erected three.: large fuel  oil tanks ori the hill" behind the  store and built a pile-driven  dock to replace some' ofy the  floats in front of the store. Mr  Lutz kept up the remaining  floats.  ' Mr Imer Beamish still had his  small floating post office there  and'. the Marine Express Company were sending the ��� Jervis  Express with' the mail'; and  freight at least once, 'a week.  The Western'.. Fishing Company  also maintained a fish buying  scow.        -       _ .'-]'] ..".'  With the Japanese ceasing to  control the fish-buyirig business, a - Fishermen's Co-operative Association was formed in  Vancouver and soon had.a number of fishermen locally organized and looking for a .place  to locate a fish-buyirig scow and  floats.  They found a stretch of shore,  part of the old Point's property,  at Secret Bay still in government hands. This was at the  head of the bay and west of the  creek ���running from Waugh  Lake. They applied for and got  about seven acres of land together with the foreshore and  soon installed . a scow,' floats  arid a cabin for the buyer on  shore.  The L.M.N. (Lpngacre, Moore  and Netifeld) Logging Company  had   acquired   some  timber  in  the vicinity and requested that  they be allowed to place their  buildings  on the  property.   In  return for  this they promised  to level off as much of the property   as   possible.   This   was  agreed   to   and   the   company  stuck to the agreement although..  they span found out that they  could not get as much timber.  as they e3Cpected7     7 '  Not long after they moved  across to the north side at the  east end of the Rapidf at Earl's  Creek. They re-opened the road  built by John Wray in 1914  to- by-pass the Rapids|4|id: built,  a dock at the west erid:for the  express to call in. This fronted  the old George Wray property,  bought on the; death of Mrs^  Wray by Bill Howard. Mrs  Wray is buried on the property.  The fishing co-op decided to  carry supplies for the fishermen but later talked the people  into a Consumer's Co-operative.  With the help of a loan from  .the Fishermen's Co-op and  volunteer labor a small store  was built at the head of the  floats, also a small house for  the manager.  Several local, men had a go  at running the store but the  share holders were not satisfied with the operation and decided, to get an outsider. The'  Wholesale Co-operative in Vancouver recommended Percy  Crowe-Swords who came from  Lasquetti Island to take over.  Angus Lutz had been trying  to get the government to take  over the up-keep of his floats  because, as he said, they were  used by-the public. While he  was negotiating the Co-op petitioned the government for a  dock 'in front of their store.  The government decided in favor of the Co-op and built a  large float and dock right by  their store, leaving Mr Lutz to  maintain his own floats. The  Oil Company of course kept up  their . installations. Then Home  Oil set up near the Co-op.  It appears to be taken for  granted that the presence of a  post office brings business to  a store on. mail days. With this  idea in mind Mr Crowe-Swords  persuaded the Consumer's Coop to allow a lean-to to be built  onto the store and equipped as  a post office. Then a tug-of-war  Wife Preservers  S��@��tC^3s^��K2IuBS<3!!BI  mm  ,    Add chopped raisins and walnuts to,  ,part of the seven-minute frosting (home-  taade or packaged) and use it as a filling'  for a layer cake, then spread the remainder of the frosting over the lop and sides!  started with Lutz trying to keep  it where it was on the north  side and Crowe-Swords trying  to get Tit over to that side.  The "postal authorities must  have received a deluge of letters. They finally7wrote,to Mr  Beamish and requested hixn to  move his post office to ^Secret  Bay as they had been .informed  that the majority of the people  lived   there. 7  Mr Beamish replied that, as  he was getting oh in years and  (had only an open put-put boat  for transportation, he would be  unable to meet this request because, it would require crossing  the water twice a day in all  weathers, No one could be persuaded to take his job. SoT^frs  Crowe-Swords became postmistress. The postal authorities  informed the people of Egmont  that this was positively the last  time the post office would be  moved.

Electric  Mainland power to Powell  and the communities on  line transmits Lower  River, Texada Island  Howe Sound and the  :.��Xil:AAii,     . :"JUA  *<  During, the past 12 months engineers, linemen  and loggers hav'e been clearing trees, erecting  poles and stringing :wire for a transmission line  through the rugged coastal terrain between Cheekye Substation, north of Squamish, and Powell  Rive*: '.-..'        '��� v-..-;  Today, 60,000 kilowatts flow through the line.  That means Lower Mainland power resources now  are shared by Powell River, Gibsons and other areas for a hundred miles upcoast from Cheekye.  Now, plenty of electricity is available ��� at mainland rates ��� for continued expansion of industry  and population in this important section of British  Columbia. _  n  ... i  The completion of this line presented some in-  teresting problems which resulted in spanning  Jervis Inlet by one of the world's longest overhead!  powerline crossings. The towers support cables  extending 10,000 feet. Another crossing ��� 6,500  feet long ������ was built over Agamemnon Channel.  Completing the line also involved laying a submarine cable across Malaspina Strait to serve in-  ; dustries on Texada Island. Power for the new circuit comes from Cheekye Substation north of  Sfiiamish  Cheekye receives energy from Bridge River  and Seton Generating Stations. Next year Cheakamus Generating Station will be in service, pro^  viding an alternate source of supply.
