Centennial Project!  ,  If George Zukerman, who introduced the Overture Concert  ���series to Gibsons, can main-  tian the standard he has set in  the first two concerts, the success of the venture is assured.  Last Friday night's concert  with mezzo-soprano Betty Allen was to say the least outstanding, equally with the first  artist Arthur  Poison violinist.  From her first number, Ga-  lupi's  Eviva   Rosabella  to  the  final encore, George Gershwin's  .Summertime   from  Porgy and  Bess;,   Betty  Allen   captiviatedi  her audience with commanding  but agreeable personality. The  explanations    she   offered    of  various numbers were not only  interesting but down to earth,  direct and without pretension.  The program included songs  in French, Italian, German and  English and Betty Allen seemed quite at home in each*of the  languages. It is not often a vocalist appears to have perfect  freedom in an array of languages butifietty Allen was equally  good in a light Handel number  as she was in the Bizet Habanera from Carmen or the Roland  Hayes' Life of Christ spirituals.  Her rangeof musie froni the  effort be made to increase membership. He was supported by  George Zukerman, Vancouver  representative of Overture Concerts who spoke of the possibilities available if sufficient  members were obtained.  Reid Nibley, accompanist for  Betty Allen played magnificently throughout, considering  he joined-Betty Allen only the  night before at Boise- Idiaho  and flew with her to Vancouver. . Mr. Nibley usually plays  in the Salt Lake City area but  has accompanied Betty Allen to  British Columbia for a concert  tour in  the province.  Mr..-Nibley   is   a   music ' *  structor  in   the  University  Utah, and does a great mar  appearances as a piano soloist.  Many at social  Betty Allen and Reid Nibley  at an informal -.evening party  following their Friday concert  proved as lively and entertaining as they had been in the hall.  In the relaxed atmosphere  of the McKibbin home, with  Mrs. McKibbin and Mrs. Propp  as co-hostesses, about 40 guests  met the musicians including  members of the Gibsons Overture   Concert   executive   and  pensive to poetic inihusic and,  George Zukerman from Over*  Jr ^^ k^ Association, Van-  or gypsy life by Dvorak, left 7C0Uyer  " -  one with the desire to hear Bet-     ^ri^+w Ait    .   l.

Thanks Mr* Zukerman  It would be fair comment to say that few people who subscribed to the three concerts of the Overture Concert series expected the high quality experienced in the first two concerts  with Arthur Poison, violinist and Betty Allen, mezzo-soprano.  George Zukerman who promoted the series for Gibsons  with the aid* of the local committee can be congratulated for the  fine quality in artists he has produced in the first two concerts.  If any individual on leaving the high school auditorium  after hearing either artist did not feel satisfied he or she must  need the Metropolitan Opera and the New York Philharmonic  combined to suit their musical taste.  It speaks well for the future of Overture Concerts that  its opening events were of such quality. It should also be of great  assistance to the local committee to obtain a greater subscription  list for next year's series���because, based on the enthusiasm of  this season's subscribers the "sales pitch"will not be so tough.  There are plenty of supporters now. Last year it was a handful  -composing a loosely-knit committee. Next year there will be  close to 150 individuals who have profited from spending an  evening listening to superb music.  What is your attitude?  "Criminal ��� a person guilty of a wrong violation of the  law." A hard-bitten definition, that, out of the cold, factual columns of the dictionary. It makes a criminal out of the motorist  who dWves 31 miles an hour in a 30-mph zone or 21 miles an  hour over a level railroad crossing. Under the definition, Joe  and Harry are both criminals if they bet each other on who can  drive to the Smith's place faster. They become liable to stiff fines,  Imprisonment and lcence suspension.  Enforcement of the law seldom hews that close to the. line.  But as the Canadian Highway Safety Conference points   out,  drivers as,!well'as pedestrians should constantly be aware^#$ the  fact that there are laws governing highway movement atitj^mose  laws can-be, and frequently are, enforced to tlie letter. It .m^y,  says Canadian Highway. Safety Conference, seem to be ��� sp** much  5 bother to read  the laws under which you drive or walk, but  /knowledge of them'may save the driver and walker considerable  angush,  embarrassment  and  trouble.   And  a   glimpse  through  Ihem will undoubtedly give the average driver and. pedesjrijm  a surprise or two.     .  From weaving to ceramics  BY MRS. M. NEWMAN  The  Family  Herald* December 6 issue contained a  story  with photographs, of Mrs. Jack  Reeves of Roberts Creek. Possibly   she  is   better  known in  Eastern   Canada   and   far   off  countries than here in the home  phe   has  occupied   since   1914, _  when she came here as a bride  to the acres her husband had  pre-empted in 1907!.  Mrs. Reeves is an excellent  and energetic cook and provider, judiging from . the endless  prizes she has won in fairs and  exhibitions throughout the peninsula. In the home-cooking,  canning and fancy work departments her name is well known.  But there are few who know  that she is also an artist of considerable fame, she expresses  herself in beautiful natural  dyed colors she weaves into  her loom and in the experimental spinning of divers wools  from many animals.  Her ability to turn out tlie  soft colorful materials that  slide so easily from her loom  <d!id not come in a day. Years  of x research and study,' and  grateful access to the Open  Shelf Library, together with  the grim necessity of providing  her two sons and two daughters  with warm clothmg during the  hardi years, resulted in a thor-  - ough knowledge of her art. .  Mrs. Reeves now uses a spinning wbeel made in 1938 by a  Scot in Victoria. Prior to that  she used! a spinner attached to  her sewing machine and made  for her by her second son, Gordon. With this spinner she  demonstrated at the P.N.E. in  Vancouver  Now that Mrs. Reeves has  almost exhausted her ideas in  weaving her mind is turning  more and more to ceramics in  which fieldl she has dabbled  quite successfully, using clay  from her garden and the kitchen range instead of a kiln. If  she becomes.,as interested in  this hobby as in weaving, then  the ceramic craft is about to  get a lift for she is an artist to  her fingertips and -never goes  about her job half-heartedly.,  NOTICE TO CONTRACTORS  ���if;.

HISTORICAL  and OTHERWISE  Article 5  I mentioned earlier the clam  canning venture at the mouth  of Langdale Creek, -which also  did not last.  About 1910 a group started  a saw-mill on the property  where the boat-building works  now is. This was a fairly good  small, mill, though with no.  planer, and operated for several years About the.same time  th Port Mellon pulp mill was  started, .and for many years  had  a chequered career.  Exacty why it' was started I  never learned���perhaps a stock  selling scheme, perhaps to get  a grant of tracts of government  timber. That had become pretty well accepted! as proper pro-*  cedure; a group would undertake to build a mill, and get a  grant of timber. They were not  likely to lose, as if they could  operate at a profit, on practically free stumpage, all well and  good. If *not, they could close .  down and the timber holdings  would be worth more than had  been invested in the land.  An example of this latter  were the mills at Beaver-Cove  and Swanson Bay, and as far.  as that goes, Port Alice, who  seemed to intend the same \  game, but were foiled when  Brewster became Premier in  1916, and ordered them to operate "or else".  The Powell River Co., of  course, got timber grants the  same way but they were really operators, and over the years  have made' capital investment  much, greater than the original  timber grants were worth (at  that time, anyway) on King-  come Inlet.  It does seem doubtful if  there was an original intention  to operate the Port Mellon mill;  I have been told that the machinery installations were very  worn when installed, and out  moded even at that time. Since  then there have been many  shut downs, much more than  operating time; many changes  in ownership, and quite likely,  more stocks soldi. For the last  few years, however, it does ap-r  pear as though the mill has at  last got on to a sound Operating  basis.  About 1912 Harry Roberts  started a saw-mill at Roberts  Creek, which under his and succeeding ownerships operated  for a long-term. Also about  this time, Bert Whittaker started a mill at Sechelt, on Porpoise Bay. Near the same time  Champion and White opened  - a gravel supply pit near the  mouth of Dakota Creek, at Hillside, which has operated! almost   continuously  ever  since.  An interesting thing that not  many people are ��� aware of, is  that before the turn of the .century a slate quarry was opened  up a couple -of miles west of  McNab. Greek, right on the  beach. It was finally abandoned, because, as I was told, the  slate would not split* true. I  believe there is a similar outcropping of slate, with similar  weakness, on Jervis Inlet near  Deserted Bay.  During the years, of course,  there have been many small  mills oerated, some very small.  A few were really more in the  hobby category, than economic  enterprise.  I watched one such  operate, a water-power affair,  where I timed the head-saw in  cutting one board! from a 16-  foot long bolt, of soft cedar.  The cut took almost 30 minutes  the operator sitting alongside,  drawing contentedly on his  pipe.        .  For some reason these mills  were all lumber mills, with or  without a planer. No shingle  mill was ever ventured, which  seems surprising in view of the  plenty of good quality cedar  available, and the fact that  equipment to handle tlie material could be much iighter, and  less costly, than to handle heavy  saw logs.  So far, as I know the only  shingle ' mill near the district  was at the-head of Salmon Arm  Clowhom Falls, where a mill,'  with.I think four machines, was  established, operating on water  power from those falls. I believe it was installed by the  Iowa Shinge people, later taken  over by the Whittal -interests.  e This mill' operated "for a number  (of years, much of the timber being floated down Clowhom  Lakes and river, and over the  falls.       \     ������  As mentioned earlier; most  of the early settlers, andl of  those coming later, seemed to  have some form of agriculture  in mind. It was not too hard to  get some ground ready for the  plow for a start���between the  stumps-, of course. ��� There was  little brush or second growth  for. many years."

During the years up  to perhaps 1920 there was fairly gobd open range for stock;  after the fires the land grew up  with many edible native  growths, and a good deal of  grasses and clovers from the  bull-team, and horses used in  the  logging.

Mr.  Engen, aged 75, died on Feb.  2, in St. Paul's hospital, following a lengthy illness. ���  Born in Norway, Mr: Engen  migrated to the United States  as a young man, later working  at various trades in Winnipeg,  Calgary and Vancouver. He  was last employed in the pulp  andi paper mill at Woodfibre as  an engineer and valve repairman, .until his retirement five  'years ago at the age of 70 years.  He then moved with his wife  to Sechelt, where he built his  attractive little home in the village.  A man of many hobbies, he  as especially devoted to violins,  boats and gardening.  He leaves his wife Agnes, one  brother in Surrey, B.C., a brother Thorwald and a sister Karen Brasten, both of Norway.  Pallbearers were: Wesley  Byberg, brother-in-law of East  Helena, Montana; Jim Engen,  nephew, Vancouver; George  Birnie, Horseshoe Bay; Joe Robinson, Eric Knudison and Tom  Parish, all neighbors in Sechelt.  Mrs. Engen's mother, Mrs.  Elise Hogfoss, Fairdale, N.D.,  - who has been in Sechelt since  Mr. Engen^s earlier serious illness, two sisters and their husbands, Mr. and Mrs. Walter  Larson, Princeton, Minn., and  Mr. nd Mrs. Wesley Byberg,  ���East Helena, Mont, were present at the funeral.

Previous attempts  have been thwarted so often  and jealousies and antipathies  are so easily aroused that the  idealists become dismayed. Eut  a few things should be remembered.  A century ago, warefare between  nations   seemed   inevitable.    Tennyson's   couplet   expressed the general feeling:  "Their's not to reason why.  Their's but to do and die."  Small groups of men. in various countries decided foreign  policies, and expenditures were  made with little or no consultation of thepteople., Marked  advance has been made in this .  respect. The building of a new  warship called for explanation;  people, at least, want to know  the reason why. . Not many  thinking people regard war as  inevitable���at least in lands  , where freedom of press is per-  " mitted The extent to which radio is used is bound to lead to  wider understanding between  nations even in places where  there is little freedom of speech  In spite of those who fear peace  is a pipe-dtream, it can be said  tthat a cen'tury���even haljf a  'century���has seen a big step  'forward:  In thousands of pulpits the  subject has been discussed;  there- can be very few ministers  of religion pf any group, who  have not ,<earnestlj* prayed that  what, sometimes looks* like a'  conflagration may be the dawn  of a better day. The churches,  the press, and scores of other  agencies no longer think of  peace as a pipe-dream.  A story is told of an Indian  holy man who livedi on a few  handfuls of rice each day and  drew around him in the sand,  a circle into which no one of  inferior caste might come.  One  .day the shadow of an Englishman fell within the circle; the  Indian walked to a river, threw  away his rice,   and went that  ' day unfed, rather than eat food  'which he thought had been defiled.  We must respect a man with  such convictions, no matter  howi much we may disagree  with him. That man, and millions like him, reveal a capar  city for self-denial, which ��� we  cannot but admire. But more  .and more, idealism in modern  times tends to express itself in  promoting - well-being. Whatever cynics may say it is true  that leaders in various lands  are turning their efforts to  make this world a better place  in,which to live.  No music has ever been composed! nor any picture painted  which did not in the beginning,  exist in someone's- mind. The  artist first saw the picture with  his mind's eye and the architect  Saw the bui^dingl before the  foundation was dug: It was  said of Christopher Wren that:  "He thought in cathedrals."  A British writer says we  must ask all aggressive invaders to examine their motives;  that question itself would/ often break down their impulse  to fight. No matter how disappointed men may be with recent events, most will agree  that wars? oirag^ssion are decidedly! out of favour"  The prpeess-'Of eliminating  war ;is)'t^pi^y7;slow;; a^Tthfere;'  is. ^^x-^M^^^MZ^^^^^y:  bring it '^WoufcT- Thlre}::is>Tcbh-  stant fear of p^imism and  cynicism., But > the^-firs��: gr^y ������*  strealcs of dawn haVe app��ar��d!7  These lines by.
