Mrs. Gibson has described  herself as "completely overwhelmed" by their kindness.  "I Was only young when I  lived here," she said, "I had  toy school friends and some: of  my family here. I have only  been back for very short periods at-a time since I was 16.  But the way everyone I�� knew,  and lots of people I have never  imet, turned in and helped me  has been, absolutely wonderful!  I hope you can tell them, all  how very grateful I am -���;1  can never thank them enough."  Surrounded bv four of her  children, and with a seven:  riionthsold baby asleep in the;  bedroom, Mrs. Gibson told; of  (individual help given by people. Some one came and took  the family wash and launderr  'ed it when waterX.yvas scarce.  Another kept all the. children  on moving day. Others .went  and scrubbed the floors of the  home. Still others putup'clothes  lines, trimmed ' awkward  branches   of   trees.  Mrs. Gibson's own kitchen  appliances, the Living room  heater, and the plumbing were  all installed for her.

The second meeting' of Job's  Daughters took place at the Masonic Hall last Friday evening.  The work put on by the hori-  ored queen, Joan Reeves, and  her comely officers was well  done, and a credit to the girls  and their guardians.

The players  were Kenneth Helm, flute;  Dominic Lastoria, clarinet; Ro-  ������ land Dufrane, oboe- George Zukerman, bassoon and Douglas  V. Kent, French horn,.  Which instrument one liked  best was a matter of personal  taste but to have been forced  to make a choice from among  the five instrumentalists would  have been difficult. Some were  for Mr. Dufrane's playing of  the oboe. Clarinet specialists  liked Mr. Lastoria's work'and  whoever would overlook the  excellent playing of the French  horn by Mr. Kent would be unmindful of the difficulties the  French horn presents1 any  player. -    -       ".���-.-  But to get to the program.  It was a delightful experience  in the-realm of chamber music  from the openng oboe and bassoon sonata by Nauman. Right  after the first few exchanges  between the instruments did  one realize here was going to  be a musical treat by men of  experience,. '���'-���'���',  They played in various combinations. The Mozart trio, a *  divertimento by oboe, clarinet  and bassoon was a picture of-,  three friendly musicians having a wonderful time playing  something they enjoyed. The  Bozza quartet with flute, oboe,  clarinet and bassoon revealed  an ensemble which would be  hard to beat but the climax  came when the Ballay quintet  required the French horn. The  result was a musical treat rare-  'ly heard in these days of "con  forming to low, low s'taridardsT*  Music played in both section**  of the concert ranged Irons  17th century to contemporary  composers and as the program  developed the disparity between Mozart and Shostakcr-  vich was quite clear. When Mr���  Zukerman described one section of music as being that o��-  a "drunken sailor.in Marseille"  he could well have left thai .as  a description of the Shostakovich polka from The Goldet.  Age.. : '    .   . .  The distinction between tha  earlier,    German     and    Jtecteasr  French music was quite '.marked and   the , Shubert, ntombe'r  which was played as,atr eriqare- ���  was as soothing as the Shostakovich number was jarring,  -    Mr. Zukerman and Dick Mo-  Kibbin  both  spoke on future  possibilities  of Overture Coa-  certs  for the  Sunshine  Coast  and both urged greater effor*  towards   a  wider membership  so as to enable the movement;  to obtain the best ih musicianship. ��� F.C. *  MEETING THURSDAY  A meeting of Overture Concerts committee will be hel4L  Thursday night  starting at  8  o'clock in the United Church-  hall.

Her husband, helplessly ELhimself, did the best he could for her -��� alone.H No friend-  3y neighbor came to do a little, or relieve the burden for that  old couple. A similar thing happened later, closer to home. The  old lady had never bothered anyone in two years. Busy neighbors- sped past the little house without a thought.  A neighbor had occasion to speak to this lady for a few  minutes1 and found to her shamefaced consternation that she.had  been desperately ill for almost a month. It was no excuse that  the neighbor didn't know. She, the neghbor, had many short  periods when she could have gone to make a meal, or even talked  to relieve the deadly loneliness. But she was the same as the rest  of the neighbors ��� to busy to take time out to find out why the  woman had not been seen around.  She might have died too ���  alone*.  If there is some aged person, or stranger in your vicinity  whom you haven't seen recently why not knock on that door to  make sure everything is all right? It wouldn't take long and you'll  feel wonderful about being a good neighbor. It's a nice* chance  '&> present some of those wonderful preserves you've been sav-  ing for a special occasion, and isn't it a special occasion to see  a worn face light up with gladness over the thought that somebody cares? ��� Contributed  Overworked words  Words, more than people, tend to be overworked. Fortun-.  ately, after a  period of  overwork has brought exhaustion to  words and readers, writers and speakers may decide to give their  .*- slaves a rest. It is not many years since everything was "intrigu-  .^rigi', whether an intrigue was involved or not. Then there was  ia vogue for "hectic," misused by ninety-nine out of a hundred  persons who put it on paper. Both seem to harve been given a .decent burial./'Exotic" survives in perfume advertisements, principally because the copy-writers think it is a synonym for "erotic'* or believe, perhaps correctly, that readers of their advertisements will so interpret it. Other writers, for the moment at least,  ���seemed to haye turned it out to pasture.  One word currently showing signs ,of strain is "dramatic."  A friend^of ymisuffidadjectives has recently noted "dramatic"  a|>pIied"1$Ts!&^ ^6iai^^lumti^ fixtures, - ��� clo^s^-a*^  ' baseball games. Apparently in modern English iisage tlWaidjeC-  iive may be applied to ari^thing except Tth.e drariia./ But when  an* adjective is used ���ipi* so riiany purposes,, It ceases tohave any  meaning at all;/ Its resting-period/is at hand or overdue.  T  Since language grows by-Textension of its use, it might  be pedantic to insist onlimiting the 'application of "draniatie" to  ihe field of drama. One could not really object to describing  some utterances of politicians as "dramatic" when the utterances  are framed and presented with the intention of Tmisleading the  .public. The point of the adjective, if it must be used, is to suggest artificial contrivance. Applied to baseball games, it verges  ���on the libellous. If sports writers cannot do without it, they  might reserve it for descriptions of professional wrestling matches.-���The Printed Word.  NOTICE  R. S.

JErom North  "Vancouver to Horseshoe Bay,  quite* a bit of passenger travel  was by small boats across to  Horsehoe Bay, thence into town  by the P.GJS.i gasoline car.  The&e boat runs were all "charter runs," usually a group get-*  ting together and hiring a boat,  or a boat owner going in anyway, and taking others with  him. This practice ended when,  the P.G.E. stopped running.  Meantime the highway to Horse?  Bay had been completed, arid  the First Narrows Bridge built.  In 1945 Gordon Ballentinp  and George Firth started a passenger service by fast launch  from Gibsons . to Fishermerisj  Cove, where it connected with  regular bus running to Vancouver. This service was taken  over in 1948 by the Gibsons;  Bros., who put in a consider!  ably larger vessel, the "Machi*  gonne," and. changed the east|  em terminal to Horseshoe Bayf  This service was in turn taker|  in 1951 by the Black Ball Fer|  ries, who .put hi operation cati  ferries, the culminaton of yeart  of, dreams, which dreams had*  and still sometime cio, include  a highway around tlie head of  Howe Sound.

A perhaps unforseen, but/certainly inevitable, result of these  motor roads, and car ferries,  handling passenger cars and  buses, express, mail, and heavy freight, is that it marked  "finis" to the long years of boat  transportation as far north as  Powell River. I expect there  are fewer letters directed to  Ottawa, praying that wharves  or floats be installed or repaired; so/presumably, there will  be a saving in federal funds.  Perhaps the expenditure can  be transferred to "DEW" lines,  etc.  Some reference should perhaps be made to those rnuch  earlier inhabitants, the Indians.  Apparently there had been  some sort of an Indian village  here long before the whites  came. At any rate, the earliest  survey, that by Peter Burnett,  set out an Indian Reserve, the  Chekwelp No. Ia It also provided, what is not generally  known, a very small reserve at  what is now Granthams Landing, the Chekwelp No. 2.  So far as I know, no use has  been made of the latter by Indians for many years, but. I  well remember when one cour  pie, "Jimmie" and "Sally" lived there; also old "Johnson,"  whom I used to watch carying  canoes. I think, but am not  sure, that Jimmie and Sally  died there, and very likely are  bured on the ground. T don't  know what present use, if any,  is being made of that small  piece of land.

Most villages I have seen on  the coast were adjacent to a  prolific salmon stream, or near  the entrance to a narrows,  where it -wafe necessary; tp wait  for tides. . Gibson Creek has  never beeri a real good salmon  stream, I^aynes, Langdale, etc.,  being much better.  I have heard that the location was developed so that the  land; in other cases they quite  likely just moved in and camped- There was little, value placed on unoccupied land anyway;  "ground rent" for vacant lanjd  was unheard -of; and ideas of  "trespass" had. not taken hold,  ^ ' Then, perhaps about 1909,  perhaps - sparked by the then  current real estate bootiv in the  couritry generally, and Vancouver in particular, came the  new . idea of "subdivisions*"  with lots being sold as suiririieir  Indians, going north from the   camp sites. I thinkperhapsthe  Legislature  larger villages on Howe Sound,  could wait over in sheltered  water until the outside water  was suitable. Possibly. Another  story, Which may* be fanciful  was that it was the sentry point  to give warning of raiding parties from the north. According  to the latter story, a sentry  would be placed on Gower  Point; when danger threatened,  he could signal warning to a  man on Gospel Rocks, who in  turn would rush across the flat  ground and warn the village,  who again in turn would despatch fast canoes to warn the  larger villages up the ��sound.  Meantime, the old men, children, and klootches of the sentry villages would head for the  woods, to hide as best they  could.  Such spacious days had ended long before my family cariie  here; in fact, there seems to be  little record of any trouble between Indians arid' whites at  any,, time in this district. An ex-  first development locally ih  that line was the Grantham subdivision at what-is now known  as Qrantharhs Landing. This  seemed to succeed very well,  and later Mr. Grantham devel-  opened other tracts of land.  Other promoters were also in  the game,: of course, riot only  here, but, pretty well all over  the lower coast, '  (To be   Continued)        y  BY TONY GARGRAVE MLA  , Once again the Sturdy-Som.-  mers issue has turned up in  the Legislature.

Over 200  local committee have been set  up to take advantage of the  celebration in 1958. Mr. Will-  Tiston told some of the events  that were planned.  They were gold and green  licence plates/ a specially minted silver dollar, the opening of  a re-created Fort Langley, a  new history of B.C., an anthology of literature about B.C., a  children's history of the province, a special movie in color,  a 100 foot totem pole, a travelling exhibit of B.C. sketches  and other art work, a travelling  industrial exhibit, and a school  sculpture project in which all.  school children in B.C. -vfould  participate by placing a piece  tof culpture on the grounds in  Ifront of the legislative buildings.  All of this will be done in,  harmony with "Century Sam,"  the  little   cartoon   iprospiector  Klondike rush, I believe.  (However, iip until perhaps  about 1908 there were some Indians in the district; they were  travelling in canoes, that is, before gas engines became common. Usually the Indian, his  klbbtch, arid a few kids in a  dug-out. At times of salmon  runs hitting different parts,  there were often sizeable fleets  of these canoes. They always  seemed to* travel by day-light,  and never, bucked wind or tide.  They would just go ashore and  camp, waiting until conditions  were suitable.  Very many, perhaps most, of1  the early settlers, and even  ���some of their wives, learned to  speak the "Chinook" jargon.  I don't know if any ever leamr  ed the much more musical native Salish. At one time I could  speak enough Chinook to "get  by," but I never could accomplish the coughing click in the  back of the thrpat that: is such  a amrked feature of Chinook  properly spoken.

The list is very  long and the: story of humian  courage almost unbelieveable.  There was Milton, who sang in  the dark ���- and we know that  blindness was but one of many  crosses he had to bear. Henry  Fawcett, another blind man, became postmaster general of  England and wrote that the  thing which amazed him most  was "The inexhaustabie fund  of human kindness he found  in the world."    *  Pope was mentally and physically sick, as was William Cowper. Sir Walter Scott, lame and  a constant sufferer, found himself bankrupt when he was no  longer young, then toiled ceaselessly   in   a heroic attempt to  pay   his   debt.    Robert   Louis  Stevenson did his work under  the shadow of tubercular trouble and prayed for forgiveness  because he ha<i falteredl more  orrless. Harriett Martineau, author of 34 books, not only was  stone   deaf   but  could neither  taste   nor   smell.   One  of  the  . many books she wrote was entitled   "Devotional   Exercises"  and a remarkable thing about  her prayers in this volume was,  the absence of petitions for personal benefits.  The courage of  Helen Keller is one of the mir-  lacles of modern days.  It is not uffering which exalts men; rather it is the spirit,  in which sorrows are met  which determines whether- an  experience is good or evil.( We  talk very vaguely about good'  find evil, forgetting that-what  is good to one may result in  evil to another. God permits  many" things . to come to us;  they have a place in His plan; ,  they serve a purpose that nothing else could.  When the brave Englishman  Robert F. Scott, blinded by  Arctic . snows . and suffering  from intense hunger and cold,  faced a lonely death, he wrote:  "The soul of man is greater  than anything that can happen  to him." Where some others  could have indulged in self-  pity and given way to despair,  Scott made the occasion one  for spiritual advance. It is this  translation ..of what appears  misfortune into victory that  deepens our reverence- for'- the  human race.. ?:���--- V-'y  Defeat may serve as well as  victory,  To  shake  the  soul and  let  the glory out.
