North Vancou-  jver.Sea Cadets band and hon-  ; or guard led the parade arid  i supplied music at the Kinsmen  t Park, and really added zip to  Tthe event.  v The parade followed the  yroute from Elphinstone School  ygrounds down to Jack's corner,  f along ��Seaview road to Beach  ' Ave. and down to Marine Drive  y then along Gower Point road  to Kinsmen Park.  Arrangements at ;the park  were far better than last- year  and gave over the grounds  for the general public and  .. sports ���events. Al McPherson  was master of ceremonies on  the., platform and after A.E.  Ritchey, chairman of the vil-  lage commission delivered his  address of welcome, events got  underway. First the prize win-  ?^^^ ners-<o�� the -various..floats:w,er.e ������  preserited and.the lone bathing  beauty awarded her prize.  There were two queens and  retiriues on the platform and  they were Queen Louise Blomgren, Roberts Creek with princesses Joyce Cirlbertson and  Layergne Inglehart and Queen  TPatty Smith, Gibsons with Mavis Brown as princess. "They  presented some parade awards  while Mrs. Wynne Stewart,  president of the Board of Trade  presented the major awards.  The greased pig chase contained some elements of fun  but the pig hardly had ; a  chance. More room should be  provided next time so as to  make the contestants work  harder.  TheK* ball-game which followed hardly lived up-to expectations of the crowd with the  Gibsons team being, favored  following a string of eight victories. However the youngsters  put on a good display of baseball and have evened up the  series between the Powell River and Gibsons teams. Maybe  the large crowd of spectators,  something the youngsters have  not' had previously gave them  stage fright. TheVmoral of the  situation is that larger crowds  should attend league games.  Among the parade floats on  which a considerable amount  of work was done was the  Headlands Service Club, Sunshine Coast Fall Fair, theTCarv-  adiari Legion fl6at,{ Gibsons  Building Supply, Roberts  Creek Garage ahd: others; The  comic was providedTby the fire.  department, 58;/.-Taxi and others  including the clqwns who .did  considerable./ work en route.  Thei firemen ; looked "smart in  their red sweaters.  Concessions on the grounds  were well patronized and on  the whole arrangements at the  Kinsmen Park,. which Twas  really spruced up for the day  were the best yet. The evening dance ������ in the School hall  was well patronized. Financial  reports on the day's operation  will be assembled and announced on a later date when the  committee in charge will have  all contributions in - and accounts paid.  fMimmni  It took John Wright, Unlvcrs--  ity of British Columbia student,  two weeks to. hitch-hike from  VaripQuverto Toronto but be arrived'in time to realizehis ambl*  tion~to attend a Metropolitao  opera. .

President Danny Leavens an-T  nounced that Carole Itter has  accepted the position of swim-  "rriirii iristrudtof ^arid^will'^art-  classes immediately after July  1. Miss Itter comes to the Harbour with high qualifications  from the Vancouver Red Cross  Society. She has shown a keen  enthusiasm for teaching swimming to boys and girls.  The meqting, approved a  long distance swim as a new .  feature of the Regatta this year  and a greasy pole novelty event  along with an invitation to  Nelson Darling and Chris, Dalton of Redrooffs Golf and  Country Club at Halfmoon Bay  to again entertain with their  "aquatic acrobatics" which  has delighted the small fry on  previous regatta days. \3VErs.  Irene Moberg and Mrs. Zoe  Ifarl were invited to join the  executive: of the club by unanimous vote.  The institution of the Theta  Rho Girls Club will be held.  on Saturday, July 6th in the  Schooi HaU. The installation of.  officers' will be open to the  public. The ceremony of installation is impressive and  should attract quite a number.  This part of the program will  take place at about 7:30 p.m.  the association.

These  units sided operators to maini.am  service with the least possible inconvenience. '  LITTLE LEAGUE RAFFLE  'Winner of the Little League  raffle was Les Roberts of Roberts Greek with ticket No. 183.  Small  for this week  The power outage and holiday has greatly curtailed the  production output of the Coast  News plant so a four^ pnge  paper is the result this  week.  Either one, outage or holiday  has an effect on general production but the two together  result in a situation which was-  not anticipated in the general  scheme of things.  Elphinstone junior beach  party Wednesday, June.26, was  rained out, but no amount of  rainfall dampened. the spirits  of the animated group which  gathered in the school gym to  dance, play games and do full  justice to theT munificent lunch  prepared for outdoor appetites.  Never let it be said that our  youth cannot rise to an emergency. Two tubs of potato  salad, a case of pork and beans,  a whole kennel ox hot dogs  along with sufficient cake,  cookies, sandwiches and coke  to sink the Bainbridge, were  all tucked away. No one went  home hungry, and the party  ' was a huge success.

Following the chairman's remarks, the Home Economics  classes of Grade 8 and 9, under  the; guidance of Mrs. Evans,  presented a ' playlet called  "Wishes Come True", whicfe  was a clever commentary, on  [ the dresses which the girls  ��� made this year and displayed  as they commented.in their dialogue. The whole performance was enjoyable. ���  The dresses were hot only  very attractive but were also  a T good indication of the fine  --work being,done;in the. Home  Economics department. Expert  needle work was combined  with a sense of the fitness of  things to produce a delightfui  display of colorful, practical  summery dresses for afternoon  wear.  It was obvious too, that the  girls had beeri taught how to  wear * their clothes, how to  choose suitable patterns, colors and. materials. More parents should attend dress parades in future.

Editor: The following letter  has been mailed to Black Ball  Ferries, Ltd.-  Dear Sirs: On Wednesday,  June 26th, I came from Vancouver via the "Smokwa" leaving Horseshoe Bay just before  6 p.m. While not fully loaded  .the ferry had quit6 a few vehicles, among them quite a  number of buses and "heavily  'loaded trucks. On arriving at  Langdale the first to be unloaded were the buses and  trucks.  These    vehicles,     travelling  Ylowly on  the adverse  grades?  which are   encountered almost  immediately,  and  occur  in  a  number    of    places    between  Langdale Tand Gibsons, .caused  considerable     congestion      of  traffic. ���T*rue,    the   passenger  cars behind were grabbing ev-  ��� ery opportunity tb get past One  or more trucks.  i$ut on a two  lane'   highway,   .with    limited  range  of   visibility,   and. fast  - trafficTin the opposite direction  #'of vehicles trying to   "make"  the ferry, that is a dangerous  practice. One of theV niost  fruitful causes of our high rate  ���of traffic-accident is this attempt at passing.  Using the ferry fairly frequently, I used to notice the  same thing getting- off at  Horseshoe Bay, though it is alleviated sonmewhat now by the  double right-hand lane on  Keith Road. On the day! mention, though I did get p?st one  or two trucks, and saw cars  ahead of me also getting by,  one or more, I was still behind  slow moving trucks when I  got to Gibsons, and the Church  corner, and long grind up Gibsons hill, would still be to come  T It seems to uie that it would'  be better to unload the* easier  way,, moving passenger cars  first, so tftey could get on their  - way, thereby not contributing .  to a traffic jam. There may be  reasons,, which have escaped  ���me; for not doing this: if so, I  Would be glad to be informed.  If riot, I will permit myself to  hope for an amendment to  yOur unloading procedure.

This should  have read an experienced driver because Mr. Allen has had  a- driver's license for something  like 25 years. The charge  against him was dismissed.  n  Presented in recital June 26  were 27 pupils of Mrs. Betty  Allen, A.T.C.M., L.R.S.M, at  the charming seaside home of  Mr. and Mrs, H.B.

Hamnett's well--  trained voice and pleasing personality charmed her listeners  and she was called upon for an  encore.  Another highlight were two  pianp solos by Mrs. Allen, "Is-,  land Spell" by John Ireland,  and Chopin's "Premiere Ballade" presented in Mrs. Alien's  flawless style.  Mrs. Allen was presented  with an orchid corsage. Miss  Hamnett and Mrs. Gordon also  received  gifts..  Assisting her mother as co-  hostess was Miss Anne Gordon.
