To the Business men of the  Sechelt Peninsula:   ���;.,   .  This is one appeal for funds  which we are sure will pay div- .  idenls for your firm.  Handicapped people, as you  know, very often. are dependent on social welfare assistance which must be paid by  taxes. But rehabilitation changes this picture, as a recent report by Caniada's national rehabilitation co-ordinator shows.  Ian Campbell said recently  in Vancouver that the first  425 rehabilitation cases reported last year had 228 depen-  "cients who had been receiving  public or other assistance, at  an annual cost of $230,000. In  the first year of employment,  these rehabilitate^ people earned $960,000 and I do not know  of any investment that yields  a greater return.  We are sure you will agree  with Mr. Campbell's observation. A donation to increase  rehabilitation services is an in  vestment which will pay dividend's in reduced taxes, an increased labour force, and more-  dollars  in the consumer   market.  The savings and benefits wilt  be greater if we provide thesev  services  for   children  because  tlie youngsters are iri.the long::  run,   our   greatest natural  resource.  Would you please give your -  donation when one of your lo:-  eal Kinsmen calls? . ^  Kinsmen Club of Gibsons"'  and District.  Yup! ognibi  Mrs. L.

McAfee presides was held  in the United Church hall Jan.  30, and 27 persons attended.  Vic Metcalfe was named  chairman of the Dominion Day  parade for this year and next.  It was decided he would) be the  only committee chairman appointed for the time being,  others wall be selected when  necessary.  ���. The question of a project  was discussed. and various subjects were mentioned including  a hospital, playing field, skating and! curling rink and a con  valescent home. No conclusions  Were reached. It was decided  that the various delegates appear at the. next meeting with  a suggestion .backed up with  some idea as to cost.  Betty Allen, who will sing  for members of the Peninsula  Overture Concert Association  .in Gibsons on Friday, Feb.. 8,  recently received fine press notices for her appearance in  Town Hall, T3ew York.  In the New York Times, date  Tuesday, . Jan. . 15, Edward  Downes wrote. Honegger's op**  era "Judith" was electric in its  impact. Part of its effect was  the result of the magnificent  singing of Betty Allen in the  title role. Miss Allen, who was  a 1952 winner of a Marian Anderson scholarship award.. ..  last night had a big opportunity, and she made the most of  it. Her voice had a rich, true  mezzo-soprano, quality.. .beautifully placed .< Her singing had  the velvet quality that carries  so beautifully through art auditorium.  In the New York Herald  Tribune, Jay S. Harrison wrote:  Betty Allen's hauntng mezzo  filled, the hall with luminous  sound.  Harriett Johnson said in the  New York Post: Of the soloists, the evening disclosed an  admirable mezzo-soprano, Bet-  . ey Allen, who sang the title  role in a highly distinguished  manner. She performed with  intensity of feeling, variety of  color and beauty of tone.  Betty Allen is the young  singer who will appear in. the  second concert of the Overture Concert Association this  week at the high school auditorium in Gibsons.  Miss Allen married, ; during 1953, the young social  worker she met in 1952 but,  because of the French tour and  the    Symphony    appearances,  hadn't seen for nearly a year--  Between setting up her New-  York household and leaving:  for her great North African  tour in 1954, Miss Allen appeared with the Boston Symphony under Charles Munch,  as soloist in Honegger's "La  Danse des Morts'T. The success  of this program in Boston merited its repetition in Carnegie  Hall, and earned new plaudits-  for Miss Allen.  The North African tour was  followed by re-engagements ija  France and then Miss Allen's  first appearances in Italy. Miss  Alien, in 1955, went again to*  France, her 31-concert tour of  the previous year having been  expanded, to a 45-concert tour,  and again to Mjiian and Florence and the other Italian cities. A career of international  scope was carved-for her. Wat  oast wzws  ���<s;  1  ^Published by Secheli Peninsula News Lid.,  every Thursday, at Gibsons, B.C. ^  Box 128, Gibsons, B.C., Phoae 45Q I.

Nevertheless The Coast News does  think the idea has merit no matter who prints it.  Centennial operations  to date are summarized  Logging and the putting out  of shingle-bolts and long-bolts  was a "primary" production.  Some attention began to be paid  to manufacture. About 1895  a small saw-mill was built in  West Bay, 'Gambier Island s I  think by the same people who  operated the Brunnette Mill at  ���Sapperton. The mill was supplied by the Waterous people,  and was installed by the late  Mr. T^endall, who later lived  in retirement at Gibsons  Sometime before the turn of  the   century,   the   Mattinsons  started a mill on Keats Island,  at the Hooper place (now the  Baptist Camp) to make cedar  7 floats  for  fishng  nets.   I   am  '.. not sure if they, put in any power j or if it was entirely hand  power. In any case, about 1900,  ���;' they moved the mill. to near  the .mouth of" Langdale Creek,  now     the     Salvation    Army  Tycamp, and for. power put in an  T To vei^hotT watery wheel, perhaps  ���   12 feet diameter, -water carried  Z by a: flume ��� .from about 2,000  Y-ieet up the creek.   This operated '.yuntil .Tperhaps .1903   or  J.904. Later anian named Bor-  ,'<deri started a factory for can-  T Thing clams : on the same  site,  'bringing    the- clams,   mostly,  :���:. from;the big clam.bedte on Van-  7 c^uyer7:Island-f 7hear   Nanoose.  TThis did riot operate long.

When we came here the "store,  was being operated by Mr. Gibson and his youngest daughter,  Nellie.' ���    -���'���'.'���        '"'*���"  Later Mr. Gibson put up another building, closer to his  house, on the site where later  Mr. C.P. Smith had his store.  Here Mr. Gibson also maintain*  ed the post-office.,That left the  first store building unused the  Mattinsons proposed to use it  ifor their "hotel';. But, a grievous error, they failed to reckon  on Mrs. Lucy Smith.  Girding herself in the [pano  ply of full W.C.T.U. armour,  Mrs. Smith plunged Into the  battle. Letters were directed to  Victoria in numbers,, and  church circles in Vancouver  were apprised of the imminent  threat to souls. A petition was  circulated. Somewhat tardily,  the saloon monsters also circulated a petition. I never did  know how many signed petitions, or exactly who ' signed  which; as has very often been  the case, very likely lots of  people signed both petitions.  In any case, when, the smoke  cleared right had prevailed.  The government of the day,  composed of many well-known  drinking men, were no more  anxious te get into battle with  a lot of determined church people than our more recent governments. The license was refused, and the local men would  continue to drink from the bottle, rather than frbm the glass.  I use the term "men" because  5n that day only the males  were, considered as the drinking crowd? as far as we knew,  ladies did not drink except the  high society ladies, of which  we had none, or those of accomodating virtue, who, locally/ were., usually difficult to  ���discover.     *    *  About 1898 or 1899 an Alex  ��� JVtecKay; a man named Greene  ���and I think another partner in-  -.stalled a S&W-hiill at tlte foot  of .the mourit&iti to cut' cedar  from' ���; the   pia!teau   above' the  T2.000 foot 'level;  actually',''the'  head-water ��� branches of what is.  jiow  called   "Chaster   Creek",  then known as Paynes'Creek".  The timber was taken out  in ���  long bolts', strings of about six  dogged  together   arid snubbed  down a log-ciiute? to about the 7  level of the old cemetery, then .  released   one  by one  to  run  down to the mill, ij'ust at^the  foot of the slope. "  ��� The timber was hauled by  team arid wagon, to the beach,  arid loaded Ori scows for Vaiv  .-couver; during ;the, winter, of  1900-01' there was. so ~ much  snow that hauling was done for  VrOeks by bob-sled, right to- the  beach. The cedar saw-dust was  .For Guaranteed ,  Watch and Jewelry  Repairs   ,;  CHRIS'S  JEWELERS  Work  done  on the  Premises  WB BUY OLD GOLD  Phone 96 Sechelt  carried off to the near-by ravine; the big'fire of 1906 got  into the pile and burned for a  couple of years, but finally  went out. I saw the remains  of the pile a couple of years  ago, and digging down found  saw-dust that looked almost  fresh.  The slabs; and edgings were  back-packed by Chinamen into  a pile that became very large,  probably 60 feet high^ supported by dry fir snags. We were  living about one-quarter mile  away when the 1906 fire went  through, and I well remember  the roar when it hit the slap-  pile. Speaking of Chinamen,  packing reminds me that for a  long time all the supplies: for  the logging camp up above the  2,000 foot level were carried  up by Chinamen ���- horse feed,,  blacksmith coal, and all. Later  a paek-pohjr was used.  About . 1903 the operation,  was taken over by Battle 8t  Drew; I am not certain, but I  think this was the C.S. Battle  who later became quite well-  known as a timber man in Vancouver. The new owners moved  the mill, up the mountain to  the, top of tlie first lift ^~ the  site of the logging camp- They  .installed    a    dairi    there,    in  2    Coast. News, Feb. 7,  1957.  Paynes Creek, and built a lumber flume to the beach, landing  close to the present Donaid J.  MacLeod property; that was the  reason for tlie subdivision now  known as "Parcel A, DTL. 685".  Sometime about then the Pat-  erson Lumber Co. became in:-  Iterested, and later took over.  About 1905 the v mill closed  down, perhaps becaus'e of a recession (we didn-t know the  word then) brought about by  the ending of the Spanish-American War, the South African!  War, and the petering but o���  the Klondike gold rush. Any-  wayr in 1906 the big Madden  fire came through and wiped  everything put, including a  considerable riiuriber of set-  t��er*s buildings. There was no  loss of human life( but plenty  of pigs, chickens, and .1 guess>  cattle. *  . That; "Madden" fire of 1906  was the last really big fire that  raged. through- this district.. It  was  started by land clearing,  ' by an old bachelor named Mad-  , den, on what is rio��w known as  the   "Leek"   property,   northwest   of   Seaview    Cemetery.  The   property   was;  originally  settled  by A.S.  McCall,; who  later moved  to a part of the  TManning property, the site of  the present Irwin Motel.

He said: "We  .1       -*-���!*���       '  must play to win; the idea of  turning the other cheek is out  of date.

This man was saying what  too many believe that the thing  is to win, no matter how it is  done, fair or foul, but win.

Well, -when;;that  big game took place the Exeter team didn't have the easy  .walk-over they expected. The  Andover team was on its toes  ahd as the end of the terrific  struggle drew near the score  stood 11-8 for Andover. Exeter  fans were surprised and dismayed.   ���  vl. *V -k  ��i>       '{���       ��s>  With only one minute left it  looked rather hopeless for Exeter; the only possible chance  'for a win would be a field  goal," which in those days,  brought five points.  Then it was that excitement  rose to fever pitch. Exeter's  centre got the ball and snapped it quickly to Vic Harding,  one of the halves. Vic was  fully 30 yards from the Andover goal. He paused for a moment and seemed to drop the  ball to the ground. He gave it  a mighty kick and it sailed between the goal posts. Exeter  Supporters gave a mighty cheer  and bedlam broke loose. The  referee signalled that a goal  had been scored, making, the  score 13-11 in favour of Exeter.  To everyone's amazement,  Vic Harding walked over .to  "the referee and told him that  the ball had never touched tlie  ground as it ought to have done  end it was only a lowkicked  punt yielding but one point. In  new of Vic's definite statement there was nothing the  referee could do but rule ;no  goal and, declare Andover winners of the game.  At the time both Exeter, players and supporters were stun-*  ned but the more they thought  about it the prouder they were  of the downright honesty and  chivalry of Vic Harding.    ..  Thomas W. Lamont, who was  a student at Exeter school, tells  about tins game in his book,  ���My Boyhood in a Parsonage.  Like many others he wasi. bitterly disappointed at the time,  but he says they still-talk about  it at Exeter to<iay and they are  mighty proud of the episode.  This is an' excellent story  and I commend it to all who  play, it teaches youngsters  right standards in sport.  , Our quotaton is by Sir Walter Scott: We honour God  when we play honorably.

G<  car  licence  Motor license renewing for  1957 is in full swing in all license offices throughout the  province. The advance sale of  licences has been good, and it  js hoped the trend will continue  in sufficient quantity so as to  reduce the congestion in the  offices at the endl of February.  Motorists are reminded Feb.  28 is the deadline. Those operating on. March 1 without 1957  plates being displayed will be  liable  to prosecution.  The mailing of renewal applications to registered! owners  was completed early in January. Because of many owners  moving and failing to report  changes of address to the Motor  Vehicle branch, there will be  a considerable number of owners who did not receive their  fornis. The forms in many instances will be available in the  local licence office providing  the T owner still lives in the.  same  community.  Motorists without forms are  urged to follow this procedure  Immediately:  1. Contact your local licence  office to determine if your application is. being held there  for want Of proper mailing address. If it is there pick it up  without delay.  2. If the form is not at the  jlocal licence office, .write im-  anediately to the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles, Victor-  Jia, quoting the 1956 licence  .number, the ��� motor vehicle registration number, printing the  name of the owner in full, together with-the new address.  Suitable forms for this purpose  are available at all licence offices.  Remember! You need1 an ap-  pication  form  to   obtain your  new plates. Attend to it^now.

The Northwest Passage was  first sailed both ways in a single season by the RCMP schooner "St. Roch", in 1944.  The study of weed seeds can  be fascinating, educational,  and an inspiration for.artistic  designs ������ especially if you  use a good magnifying glass or  ...band- lens. People wonder why  weeds are so aggressive; why  they :$Ucc^eed where desira'ble  ������plants$^il; why they thrive in  spite ~o�� drouths, grass fires, 7  mowing and cultivation. One  answer, in the case of most  weeds can be found in tlie  seeds that they produce.  Some   weeds   have   such   a  ,'hard durable   outer  coat   that  they are unharmed by an ordinary grass  fire. If eaten by  a bird   or a   grazing   animal,  they   are ( not   digested   in its  stomach and are wictily distri-  '���**��� tod. Some kinds have such vi-  talty   that    they   have   been  known to sprout and grew to  the surface after being buried  deeply for many years. Many  weed seeds have interesting appendages which cause them to  be  carried   long distances   by  winds or which enable them to  cling to passing animals.  6    Coast News, Feb. 7,  1957.

Conditions often make the application of restrictions necessary with"  very little advance notice.

The fire consumed a great  amount of timber, especially  that,which had been fire-killed  by the fire previous to 1890,  ���and.was dry as tinder; but that  did not seem to be reckoned  as a loss ��� the country had not  yet understood that timber  was'wealth, even though most  of the people living in the country were, directly-' or indirectly, getting- their livelihood  from the timber/ .      -7  About 1901 the LePage glue  people built a factory on what  is now the Corlett property, to  make   fish-glue  from   dog-fish  and sharks. It was quite a pretentious affair for those days,  with steam boilers and engines,  and a good wharf to land the  fish,  and ship* the product.  I.  have   often   seen; great mud-  : -sharks, 10, 12 or more feet in  length, on the wharf there wait-  (ihg to be put through the machines,   For whatever   reason,  the venture did not seem to be  a success, and after perhaps a>  couple   of   years   was   closed,  down.

With  interestAt noted the remarks  contained in your editorial,  and it would'-be..'difficult to disagree with them to any extent.  However,  I    hope    that   your  viewpoint that removal of the  ferry terminus will not make  a great deal   of difference  to  Gibsons  in the long run, will  prove: correct. To  the neutral  observer."  development  of this  peninsula is, in direction, not  towards   Gibsons,   but   rather  av/ay.frotsri It.'aitJicuph we :as  citizens close to the scene msy  not agree with that view. Urf-  less Gibsons, wakens  up from  ' what' may be termed complacency  and* apathy,  it may foe  left behind in the race for progress  in  this  part of  British  Columbia.  In the year   1951,  considerable pressure was. used by business people to have the Blackball Ferry Company make its,.  its terminus at Gibsons wharf,,  although -the,-local village commission was well  aware   that  it was  not an altogether suitable   location.   However,    the  commission. agreed to support  the proposal and so advised'the  "federal public, works engineer. .  A ' |most  .enthusiastic" .wel- '.  come was ..extended by. these .  business peoples headed by the'_']'  ~l6cal Board of Trade, to the '  fcompany when the first7ferry "  arrived now they are satisfied  that the ferry company* %K6uW '���'  withdraw its .service to'-Gib-:-  osns, completely.' "*.?������:���'  In my opinion^ however unavoidable the withdrawal may  be, because"-of."lack of facilities  at Gibsons, the decison, "if ��� it  has been made, to provide rio;  .. service to Gibsons directly, is",  a setback to this area, as it  would' be to any other district  that has. for many years had a  service osf some kind, or an*-  other to the local wharf. 7:-- '  The severance of ferry ser-  c yice of   any   kind to .Gibsons  may bring about 3 diversion of  ,  -the-Provincial Highway-whic$i *  may miss Gibsons altogether,  and leave the village as no  longer located on the .main  highway across the peninsula.  ��uch a condition might create  sufficient local interest whereby this area can -he developed  according to its natural surroundings, something that  ought to have, been thought of  in .recent years. True, that !<be-  e&useTaf :p^or planning in the  (past; there are certain obstacles  involved- but where there is a  will, there is a way. . ;���  .,/���" I aiii riot surprised that there   7  are 'local residents-who. are up-   X  : set   about   the  proposed   com- , *  piete severance of ferry service   ;'  to T and   from   Gibsons^   They  :f,  ���were induced to purchase pro- 7  -perty    at    Gibsons    oil    the ��  strength of these conveniences}  arid tlie important position that  the   village   occupied ��� in   this  connection..  They apparently feel that y.*.  they are being l'e'tT'down iby the  people, whose success in business; is due in part, to their  loyalty -in patronising local  merchants.      ���  To cut a long story short,  it nt>w appears that the Minister of Highways has not the  necessary authority to approve  the change of; terminus from  Gibsons to another location,  this because of- - a technicality  that has been discovered iri the  Act of 1951, hence, reason that  the provincial ;: legislature,  through its private bills com-!  mittee, is being asked.^.to make  certain changes in the Blackball Ferry Company legislation.  passed in 1951.  Robt. Macriicoi.  times very" difficult; to Qbtain  arid with the help of the Victoria archives and many leading photographers along with  % the assistance of historical^"societies, I have obtained a very  good collection.  Perhaps you could also assist  me,'--if you know of any individual, photographers who  may have some photos of these  old time vessels.  Scenes   such   as   bow   end,  ' stern views> dock side views  all lend flavor to maritime history as well as vessels ashore  or sunk.
