I hope many readers of this  column Will get an opportunity to read carefully the wording of the memorandum of intent signed to consummate this  unusual arrangement.  Though the memorandum  doesn't explicitly say so, it basically gives to the Wenner-Gren  interests the exclusive rights  to'prospect for minerals in the  Rocky Mountain Trench area  for two years. All other people are to be kept out while  this organization spends $5,000.-  009 looking for oil, lead, zinc,  copper, gold, tin and any other   ithe opposition do.   But we do  Wenner-Gren's terms,  no  railway will be built and the $500,-  000  deposit  will  be  returned.  Meanwhile the Wenner-Gren  company has had' a  two year  start* on  mineral   exploration,  in that area to the exclusion i  of everybody else.   The mem- ,  orandum explicitly states that  nothing   in   the  memorandum  shall   stop   Mr.   Wenner-Greh.  from    filing    mineral    claims *.  whether  the  railway   is  built  or not. w  fc".�� ad. ��*.* . \  1- "V ��[**  The memorandum does state  that when the surveys of water  resources are completed! they/,  shall be turned over to the provincial government.

If anyone can prove this The Coast News will give them  ���edi the space required to print the proof.  /Facing facts goes hard wth some folk. However they  ���Eaitst be faced! and Black Ball Ferries decided some time ago to  ;ssiake. the move and the Board of Trade, Village Commission,.  33CMP, Health Unit, School Board, and so forth had absolutely  aiothing to do with it. .'������..  Let's look at it this way ��� Supposing the Board ot Trade  Srom the very start had opposed the move to Hopkins Landing  ������ what do you think would have happened? Yes! The; ferry  ,a*rduld move to Hopkins Landing.  IFhe Weiisier-Gren deal  To comment on the Wenner-Gren <$cal for northern Brit-  VJsh Columbia at this time is barely possible owing to the pasaci'ty  < erf jfasistupon which to work. What is knmra is the Wenner-Giren  .interests are looking into prospects. They might decide Io-pull  out;  They might decide to go on and spert^ millions.  MIowever giving a syndicate or individual control over  such a vast area would make the syndicate or- individual, more  powerful than the government itself. Is anyone sufficiently naive  !��o, think a provincial government couldt dictate to such a. vast  ���organization? On this basis it might be wise not to jump in with.

'S'-J-He*-  ���v.*' *. ���' ���������:*'-  fee changing oil picture  SBefore the discovery of oil  dsfc 3Jeduc in. February, 1947,  CSanada had only two oil fields  sffif any significant size. One  -swots   Norman   Wells,   N.W.T.,  which was too remote to serve  populated areas. The other,  Turner Valley, had been producing oil since 1936 and was  declining.  Article S  Mention of shipping of surplus livestock to Vancouver  callsto mind a scandalous episode in which I had a minor  though much enjoyed part. We  had a large boar pig, a very  active animal, that could go  over, under or throiigh any  fence we had. As was customary at that time, hogs ran at  large. The boar liked the taste  of our garden stuff, and fenfces  were no barrier.  My Dad resorted to use of  the shot-gun when the pig was  in the garden, to try to teach  him the error of his ways. Lit- ���  tie success could be- noticed,  though plenty of fine,shot w;as  drilled into his hide. When the  charge of shot -would hit him  the pig would dash madly for  outside the fence; one time he  sort of missed his direction,  ���and came straight toward the  man with the gun; my Dafi  thereupon gave him the other  barrel right in the face, putting out one eye.  Thep one time the Boar was  ^engaged in a furious battle  with a visiting boar, and my  Uncle, always given to direct  ���action,- undertook to establish  peace with a two-handed club.  Somewhat similar tactics, it  ���occurs to me, as being currently-employed on a larger scale  .in the Mi<Mle East.  Anyway, peace was restored,  %ut during the negotiations our .  pig   sustained  a  blow  on   the  !head that twisted the head sideways, that is, it ho longer hung .  truly  vertical.    This   did  not  seem to impair his capacity for  ���eVer, with  one   eye   but,  the  his duties on the farm.   Haw-A.  liead sideways, and with inany f  pounds of fine shot -.under his  hide,   and   having   completed  several  seasons of satisfactory  Wdrk, it was decided to fatten  him   up, butcher,  and ship to  town to Pat Burns.  The pig was large, and my  Dad decided he would need  help, in the butchering. The  acknowledged r authority i on  such matters was a neighbor,  W.H. "Dan" Steinbrunner, Who  kindly agreed to supervise the  operation. My Dad: thoughtfully laid in a case of ^whiskey  for the occasion; in those days  rye came in 40-ounce bottles.  When the ..day cgme Mr. Stein-  ���*��� brunner- arrived just as I was  leaving for school; he was accompanied by a 7 scion of the  family of one of Vancouver's  leading retailers, and a bank  cle^k friend.  When I ��� got home from  school," about -4 p.m., the pig  was dead, hot yet completely  dienuded of hair, the fire for  the. scalding water was "burning not too well, and the case  of rye hot yet half gone. I busied myself with the fire, and  eventually most remaining hair  was removed. y -���  Racing horses were discussed  bui no action taken, perhaps  partly because we had a big  black that was too fast for any  present oempetition. Meantime  Tom Steinbrunner, a kid about i.  ���my own age, came over to see  what was going on, that his  father was not yet home. Conversation turned to fighting  roosters. We did! not have one,'  but Mr. Steinbrunner had a  -number, the- grey-breasted Do-  miniques. However, we did  have a Black Minorca rooster.  So Tom, the bank clerk and I  took the horses to get a fighting rooster from the Steinbrunner farm. I was riding the  black, and it was a fine ride 6n  the ..frosty roads in the moon  light,:-the black easily keeping  ahead ��� of the other two-. We  got the Dominique, stuffedi him  dnto.a. sack, and headed back.  The . -Black Minorca-was  ��� chased off the roostV out into ���.-  the yard. Rather feleepy and be* ,  wildered, he yet showed resent- :  v*,Jxnent toward another rooster  - (being in his yard}. -However,; in  maybe a couple of passes the  Dominique stretched him out  on his side, skxwly rgsspang out  his life.  Then it occurred to my Dad  that we had a drake duck, that  was inclined to be truculent. ���  For want of .another adversary  the Dominique was put into the  duck pen. Now a drake is quite  By ROBERT BURKS'  wide awake during the- night  hours, and this. drake showed  furious anger at such intrusion  of his quarters. Hissing madly,  he-.charged; the rooster, strik-  mg-yirithhis wings.- This.was. a  Violation <yf Marquis o^'.Q^ens-  bury rules, as appled to cockpits;- and the Dominique had  no adequate defenise; He backed away, and finally turned  tail and galloped squawking  round ami rouncl the* pen*,, with  the drake in hissing pursuit,  though far behind. The match  could only be cleemed "no con-  .test'V  ���It being for past midnight,  proceedings came to an end  jnot long afterward, iyiter a  [day to .sober up, my Bad was  Aable to take, stock. The Black  Minorca was dead; the pig was  hanging up, head still a little  (bit on the side, "andl the. fine  shot that had been poured into  his hide slowly working  through to show up on the inside skin of the carcass. I used  to pick these out every night  when I got home from school,  to use to re-load shot-gun shells,  as I had acquired a re-loading  outfit., However, the situation-  screamed for rectification.  On a Sunday afternoon my  Dad proposed that we saddle  up and visit Pat McCabe. Mr..  McCabe was a batehelor, a former Klondiker,.who lived near  ���Smiths^ Landing. He, as vsras  usual, kept a few .chickens,  game birds, the big red-breasted Indian games. During the  visit my Dad mentioned interest in that type of bird, as very  hardy, and able to hitter-withstand onslaught by hawks and  other predators. . Mr. McCabe,  with typical Irish generosity,  insisted that we take his cock  bird,, as he had used him for  a couple cf seasons, and felt he  should' make> a change. With  only token reisistance my* Eted.  accepted the birdy and Twe* rode  home with? the cock in a sack.

Mr. Steinbrunner.  While there he mentioned that  he had a new rooster, and suggested a match,, tav ax small  wager. Mr. SteMbrunher accepted at once, in principle,  the date to be set later. Soon,  after Mr. Steinbrunner found  reason to visit our- place, and  inevitably a casual visit to the  barnyard was m'adle. There paraded, in all his: glory,, that huge  Indian game, with a head like  an eagle, great sharp spurs,  heavy wings-, and! probably  twice the weight-of the little  Dominiqu��s.. A suitaible daite  for the match was never found*.

JUVENILE DELINQUENCY  Several years agoya lady-  asked me ��o visit her 19 year  old' boy who was in jail awaiting sentence on a charge of  car theft." She^said he .was lone-  " 2y and discouraged, shy and  not easy. to.get along with'-  I found him much as she hadi  said, -(He. seemed frightened  and resentful and as his mother  had said -��� not too blight in  amany ways.' I gave him some  enbeoiate bars and gradually  he thawed' out a no! was grateful ;yet somewhat resentful. He  made no excuse for his conduct  and I gathered he had often  been in trouble. Soon after he  was given a stiff sentence of  several years; as; he and his  companions had guns; and society had to be protected. His  was not a new story but I found  myself perplexed and bewildered.  *    *    * "  s'  The one hopeful thing is that  many of the best minds in the  country are deeply concerned  over juvenile delinquency, and  practical ways of help are being tried.  On my last visit to England,  I spoke to a group of 600 children in a school in the east end  of London.  It was at that time  .a sordid district and the pastor  of the church,  who had  been  27  years there,  told  me  that  the record showed! that every  fourth  child   got  into  trouble  with the polices   "It is the record of this area/' said the pastor, "for over a century."  .  I once read a book by the  ���psychologist     Dr.     Addington  Bnice,   too   lengthy   even   to  summarize here, but I laid it  down feeling grateful that so  many wise and good! people are  sympathetic especially where,  as the lady said about her b6y,  some are not too bright. One  may read. the newspaper accounts of young people's' eon-  duct-but they are hot wholly to'  blame; environment and careless home training and other  factors are. to be taken into consideration. .     7 T  One writer says .that"' Solomon would have taken 'little,  notice-of a child, whereas toy  <c'ay we are all disposed to do  what Jesus did when "He put  a* little child in the midst of  them." Probably the church...  has made no discovery in modern years, greater than the tremendous ��� significance of little  children..  %   .  ���      s}:  Pure milk for babies, supervised       playgrounds,       better  /schools  and1 a larger place in  church life, all indicate anxiety  on the. part of adults, to safeguard the citizen of tomorrow.  A century ago  there were no  state schools and juvenile delinquency was much more pronounced than.. to-day;   children  were sent to work at a very  early age and were often brutally treated.  Here is a verse I.,  have often* repeated:  Sweeter shall the roses grow,  In  those  far  off,   those   other :.  years,  And! children weep, when we  lie low  Far fewer tears, far softer tears.

Some varieties "of  fish commonly smoked in this  Country are: Atlantic cod,  black Alaska cod, cisco or lake  herring, goldeye, haddock (fin*  nan haddie), herring "(kippers),  salmon, sturgeon and whitefish.  Prime smoked fish has a  glossy appearance, good even  colour, no discolouration and  smells fresh and! pleasantly  smoky, A point to be noted in  its preparation is that it is already partially cooked as a re-  suit of the smoking process and  -.'. requires only a short cooking  period. Delicacies such as  smoked salmon, smoked sturgeon, and smoked whitefsh' are  often served cold without adl-  ditiorial cooking.  How should one cook smoked  fish?   The home economists of  Canada's Department of  Fisheries recommend such methods  as: poaching, steaming, baking  in aluminum foil or in a covered contaner, and broiling.  For  fish which have been heavily-  brined   they   advise   poaching  gently in water to cover until  the fish will flake  on. testing,  with a fork. For lightly brined  fish they say that any of the  methods   mentioned  are good.

Centennial Committee:  Gentlemen: May I offer suggestions and assistance within  my limited capacities, to the  Centennial Committee? Personally I am quite pepped up.about  the whole idea .of a centennial  project to commemorate our  100 years as British Columbia,  and I think it no small item of  consideration that for about 70  of that 100 years there has been  a settlement at Gibsons. I consider it an- occasion, for something more than a ripping good  jparty with a toast drunk in  Hudsons Bay rum, although  November 19, 1958 might have  that type of celebration as a  climax���should  I   say antidi-  PHILCO  diamond ^ tEi.EV[SI0N:  Exclusive .Philco development and invention-make "Diamond  ��"Television the new standard* of the T-V world-^-unmatcliable  anywhere for mastery of sight ahd soiijpd. *,   -  Pieture is  as niiicft -as. 50% brighter; on 'every.count it  leads the. entire industry!

However, conferences  with construction men hav#led  me to believe that the second  project would cost well Over a  million dollars and the first,  well over half a million. ���- at  least 3A. million properly equipped'. Even an impractical  school-marm can see from her  ivory tower that such a programme is over ambitious 'and*  apt to lead to.Tfailure, frustration and a centennial year of  nothing but hard feelings.'  Haying cooled my exuberance in the shadow of those  million dollar ideas,���',I. began  planning again with the idea  thait a project can be smalL'and  yet significant historically and  7 a pleasure to. a great number  of   people.     Now   I., -have, a  7 "dream-child" that IS within  the7 capacity of a small com:  munity.   I understand that we  . cain expect abont $5,000 from  the Provincial Government for  an approved project. If that is  SO, will youvplease consider ..the  f oilowiiig:  ���������*.*    *  ' * ��� -j.  Let  us purchase a. piece, of  property   suitable  Tfco    United  .....

If  the.  Centennial .*��� Committee ,  ���,.  can. . get    property  ' foirY ;the���  church  where   there   is   more'���'  'room'and ho traffic handicap, I  believe that'vthe United Church  "people would be. interestedy  7   If  half  the moneyywe y#an  raise would do that much, then  ���:. surely  the   othqf Thalf,ywouhl  .Ttnake, that corner intoT a heat  :   -little park,  open so that.it is  not a blind corner to the detri-  iment of traffic,  an   attractive  spot to meet the eye of visitors  to the:, area, an historic site 'iri  'that it is the resting place of  our first citizens. If space permits,  perhaps  we  could  build 7  a  log cabin���maybe  a replica  ,of  the first Gibson hoine���Ton  ihe back corner and make it a  small museum.   There may be  a dearth of museum pieces, iri'  the area, but if we had a suitable   place   where   interesting  imemos   of  the   past  could  be  . kept,  we  might  be   surprised  horn many would be forthcom- ..-  ing.  I have seen, some old pictures, a few old implements^  copy or two of old* papers in  this   community.   . Owners   of  such might be glad to know of  a place  for their safekeeping.  *:�����*?���:  I  understand   that   the  Women's Institute   is  considering  the buildng of rest rooms for  the public. Could not their project be combined with such a  one as I have outlined?

As for the building  there are plenty of small logs  available. 1 haye a skiil saw, a  "band sander, a hammer and  some nails* and I will use them  on such a project freely.
