A fire Friday night of last  week on Fletcher road near  Wynne road which destroyed a  house on property owned by  Len Swanson was one of the  most spectacular Gibsons area  has had for some time.  Flame shot high into the air  for a considerable part of the  time of the fire and the blazing  building was most difficult to  approach owing to the intensity  oi the heat. .  The fire alarm was turned in  $38,000 for  new building  Construction of new line  stores and garage for the B.C.  Electric engineerng department  will be commenced shortly in  Sechelt. ' v  hi the neighborhood of $38,000.

The buildings will be constructed on a site adjoining the  new Sechelt sub-station now  under construction on the Porpoise Bay road.  The contract has yet to be  awarded and will be announced later.  about 7.30 p m. and within minutes flames were shooting skywards. Two young men, Dennis Giles and Johnny O'Brien  were living in the aged building and were sleeping at the  time. They escaped in their ^.  pyjamas, only, having to break  their Way out through a window. The only other item reported saved was a passport belonging to one of the men.  Ten volunteer firemen under  Fire Chief Feeney responded to  the call and kept the fire from  spreading. Investigation after  the fire has not definitely revealed what caused tha outbreak. One thought was that  it started in the kitchen.  members  b  Canvassers  still  working  '��� ������"'iy^';yeai:Vt^'nd^tt*Natidhs;  al Institute for the Blind financial drive on the Sunshine  Coast resulted in a surprise for  those in. charge of the cam-,  paign. The amount collected  was $862.35, an increase' of  $379 over the previous year  and a record in this area for  the CNIB.  This year's drive, how underway, does not anticipate breaking any'records but members of  the committee and canvassers  on the campaign hope tp reach  last year's total at least.  Canvassers are now circulating from Port Mellon to Pender Harboui  30  are wanted  Some 30 more members are  required to make certain Overture Concerts will be staged  again in Gibsons this winter  season.  This was announced at Monday night's meeting of the local  association committee, by Richard McKibbin, chairman of the v  meeting'. As a result and because the committee feels sure  the members will come forth,  ti has been tentatively arranged that three artists will' perform in Gibsons this season.  They will be John'Larigstaffe'  baritone, on Nov. 7- the Stecher  and Horowitz piano duo on  Feb. 7 and Nina Dova, an entertainer who has been praised  by Anna Russell, on March 25.  -: ?The-meeting-was held iff'the  United Church hall with Robert Burns as secretary. B.L.  Cope presented the financial  picture which encouraged the  committee to look ahead to a  musical season equally as good  as last year' One thing, the  committee noted was that there  is an increase in membership  from outside points.  It is hoped that by the time  the concert season starts .ther��  will be closeto or more than  200 members signed up. This  will give the committee sufficT  ient funds to help keep the  quality of artists at ���a high  standard. .  Bishop to visit  Rt. Rev. Godfrey Gciwer,  Bishop of the Anglican diocese  of New Westminster will conduct a Harvest Thanksgiving  service in St. Bartholomew's  Church at 7.30 p.m. Thursday  Oct.  17. >  It will be a choral service  with the choir attending. This  service usually attracts a large  congregation.  wins  form and forward it to the  Sechelt Teachers Federation.  This information will be made  available to new. teachers in  the area.  M.\   Potlrr   introduced   the  DAVID LLOYD  speaker, Mrs. Young of Vancouver, immediate past president of the provincial council  of the PTA. Mrs. Young gave  a lively talk on the place of the  PTA She believes children  should feel school is a place to  work and that children must  get used to" authority at a  young age because they are  faced with authority of some  sort or' another all throughout  their lives. The parents responsibility is to send the children  to school emotionally ready  for school. The most important  thing when a child enters  school is thaJ.j he. has ibeen  taught to obey.  Mrs. Young felt that good  study habits should be formed  when chi7Qrefc�� enter junior  high school. She also feels that  parents should be told and  understand, about curriculum  changes and parents should  be fully aware of ,the differences between the high school  and University programs. She  P TA Scholarship  said parents should be told  ahead of tima if plans regarding a certain subject are to be  changed.  Mrs. Young said that help  and co-operatibn must be given  teachers to attract good teacher to this most worthwhile of  professions.  She pointed out that B.C.  has one of the finest educational systems in Canada as B.C.  has ode of the highest averages  in Canada, 47% of all pupils  in B.C. completing high school.  A discussion period was held  and problems such as counselling, discipline in the schools  and terminal programs in high  school were discussed.  Parents and teachers then  had coffee and lunch. Thanks  goes, to the Pender Harbour  PTA for providing the coffee.  In the afternoon the Sechelt  Teacher's Federation and.PTA  held separate meetings. Everyone left the school with the  feeling that this joint meeting  had been most worthwhile, and  all hope it will continue next  year. I  ;     David had an amazing high  ��� school record and hT is doubtful if there are many students  enrolled in UBC who have had  ��� such a ���consistently high aver^  age. He usually got 88 to 90%  on all exams set by the school,  by the correspondence department or the department of education. David is enrolled ��� at  UBC and >is taking an engineering course. He will have the  best wishes of ali Pender Harbour in his chosen field.  T^'o other outstanding pupils  of Madeira Park school in the  persons of Dorothy Gregerson  and Carole Malcolm won scholarships given by the Pender  Harbour PTA. Both are taking  up education. These fine young  people are a' credit to Pender  Harbour and much. more will  be heard of them in the years  to come.  Dinner may  be annual  ./ '    ��� ���'  Suggestion was made at the  DeMolay turkey dinner Saturday night in the School Hall  that the affair be made an annual event. The suggestion  was made by Fred Holmes,  member of the advisory council. The idea met with the approval of the 150 persons who  attended the event. '  Mr. Holmes outlined the benefits of DeMolay to the yaung  men of the district and explained the idea was to develop  character to the point where  they would be acceptable within the order and if the travel- '  led to any part of the continent  they would have the support  of any DeMolay branch.  Chapter Dad Fred Stenner  was chairman and the Mothers'  Circle provided the dinner  which was served by members  of DeMolay with some young  ladies assisting. The circle was  congratulated in the excellence  of the dinner.  During the evening a presentation was made to Ernest  Herrin, a precepter, who is  leaving shortly to join the  Navy.  Entertainment, which followed was provided by two young  dancers, Carol Anderson and  Joan McBride. The door prize  was won by Canon Oswald. Mr.  B. Emerson won the doll. Thanksgiving comes Monday, and we have a great deal for  which tp be thankful. We can be thankful, along with Mr. Dulles,  that there is only one Russia,. Otherwise the said Mr. Dulles  would be a great problem for psychiatrists. We should also be  thankful there is only one Mr. Dulles or we might all be batting  our soft heads against padded cells.  We should also ife* thankful there is just one Governor  Faubus.  Also we should give thanks because there.is, we hope,  only one Mr. Gaglardi to test roac? curves. We should be thankfuzy  too, there are not more road, curves than we have.  On the other hand we should be thankfuFwe live iri the  most beautiful part of Canada and we have some fine people  along the Sunshine Coast. We should also be thankful we. have  some churches we can enter next Sunday to/give thanks for what  we have received this yar. It will be the least we can do.  Our  volunteer  firemen  Fire Prevention Week should swing thoughts to the three  fire departments we have along the Sunshine Coast, one at Sechelt, another at Gibsons and the third at Port Mellon.  The men of each village are volunteers who at the sound  of an alarm drop whatever they are doing and hurry to their  station to board a fire truck and speed to the fire.  It could be that Sechelt, Gibsons and Port Mellon have  something for which to be thankful because of the volunteer effort made by these men, some of them living outside the municipality in which the fire trucks are housed. f    '  Fire prevention week is not a one-week affair with the  firemen;. They are conscious of it every week and every day.  Why not consider their situation, that of volunteers doing something which has to be done because in many instances someone  has been careless? That is why we have fFire Prevention Week  ��� to remind those who could quite easily become careless and  cause a fire, ~   ���    '  Thrift  still   has  merit  Thrift is a word that is brushed aside by "a great many  people. In present day economics it has lost a great deal of the  force it had in a bygone generation. To practice thrift these days  there must be some sugarcoating or else it will not attract.  . When it comes to sugar-coating there is a- nice deal available for thrifty persons in Canada Savings Bonds. They are ob-*  tainable through banks or investment houses.  Ths year's issue of CSB's is the 12th year they have been  marketed through the Bank of Canada and they carry the highest interest rate ever offered for these bonds. This year's rate is  an advance over last year with 3x/4 percent offered for the first  two years and 4%'percent offered for the next 11 years1. This  means the rate of interest over the 13 years is 4.46 percent which  is a good rate for the.small holder of a government guaranteed  bond.  '   The attractiveness of these bonds can best be described  by the amount of money Mr. and Mrs. Canadian public have salted away in CSB's.  Today there is something like two-ahd-a-half  billion dpllars worth of these bonds in the hand�� of the Canadi-.  an Public.  The beauty about them is they can be purchased on. the  instalment plan through your bank. Just tell your banker what  you plan to do and he will assist you in laying out a program. If  there is arty safer, investment for the small holder it has not  appeared yet. -W-.y  A CSB is a barometer of thrift. If you have some you are  thrifty. There appears to be a number of people who are acting  quietly and wisely by obtaining CSB's as they appear. A $2,500,-  000;000 nest-egg for those thrifty Canadians is something to think  about.  Get thrifty! ���-..'*���'.���  ish priest brought back from  Rome a relic of Saint Anne.  Who was Simon Dawson?  Simon Dawson was a civil  engineer who came to Canada  as a yOung man from Scotland.  He explored the country between Lake Superior and the  Saskatchewan River for the  Canadian Government, and his  report, .published in 1859, was  one of "the first documents to  point out the possibility of settlement in the northwest. In  1868 he opened'' communications with the Red River country, by what became known as  the Dawson Route and in 1870  he superintended transport  over this route of the troops  comprising the Red River expedition.  What is ihe Arbhiieciurai Conservancy of Ontario?  , Saving the fine buildings of  Ontario's colonial days from  destruction and conserving places of natural 'beatuy are the  principal aims of this organization which was founded at Toronto in 1933 by public spirited  citizens. By arousing public  opinion, it has. saved lake and  forest areas from industrialization. Numerous fine historical  buildings have been saved  from.destruction, restored and  The village received its name  maintained as relics through  the efforts of the Conservancy.  Photographs, measurements,  and architectural documents  are collected for the archives  of the organization in Totonto.

The first radium was  brought to Canada by William  Henry Beauford Aikins, a phys-  Richview, Peel County, Upper  ician who was born in 1859 in  Canada. He graduated from the  Toronto School of Medicine in  1881 and also studied in New  York, London, Edinburgh and  Vienna. He visited the Curies  in Paris, brought the first radium to Canada, established radium therapy in this country,  and made important contributions towards the control of  malignant diseases. Following,  his postgraduate studies, he  settled in Toronto where he  practised ��� for the rest pf his  life and held Staff appointments at various hospitals. He  died in Toronto in 1924;.  What Canadian village is noted  for its collection of holy relics?  Numerous pilgrims come every year to the village of Anna-  ville, Quebec, which has one  of the largest collections in  North America of holy relics  from Italy and the Holy Land,  from the fact that, its first par-  Tho visit of Queen Elizabeth  to Ottawa coincides with the  100th anniversary of the. city's  selection as the, national capital  by Queen Victoria. '  Ottawa in 1857 was described as a "lumber village con-,  verted by Royal mandate into  a political cockpit," Queen Victoria personally chose Ottawa  as the' capital of Canada ���-  then Ontario and Quebec ��� after protracted disagreement  among advocates of Toronto,  Montreal, Quebec_ City and  Kingston, Ont.  EJach of the larger centres  sent special emissaries to England to plead their cases. Ottawa backers, however, were  -content to sjubmit a brief to her  Majesty setting forth what they  considered to be the city's incomparable advantages ���" strategic military location, availability of building materials in  nearby forest��, scenic site, and  near equidistance to all the  larger towns. .  The news of Victoria's choice  reached Ottawa December 31,  1856. The New Year's Eve celebrations lasted well into the  first day of 1857.  At the time of its selection  as the capital, Ottawa had been  an incorporated town for only...  some nine  years. Z The town's  name had been "Ottawa" only:  since   1855;   It had  borne the1'  name "Bytown" before that.  Col. John By, of the Rqy^l".  Engineers, vwas the town's  founder. He was sent out. from  England in 1826 t0 oversee the'  building of the 126-mile Rideau Canal from Ottawa to  Kingston. Within a year, two  companies of Royal Sappers  and Miners, totalling 162. men,  were working on the job. y  Some 150 civilian ^uildihgs  soon had sprung up on the site.  Col. By himself planned the  townsite, which before the arrival of hardy pioneers, wa�� a  densely-forested area.  Nicholas 'Sparks and Louis-  Theodore Besserer were two of  the earliest settlers. In 1834  the population of By town was  2,400, and by. 1850 it had climbed to 10,000.  By returned to England and  died there four years later. The  War' Office, in attempting to  answer political criticism of its  spending policies, had placed  much of the Blame for high expenditures on By. Later* assess  ments vindicated him.  History gives to Etienne  Brule, phe g�� Samlel de Cham-  pJa'iri's envoys, the. distinction  of being the first white man to  see the site of what'was tp become Ottawa. He came to the  region in 1610 with a party of  Huron Indians.  Champlain himself explored  the Ottawa River in 1612. For  the next century, wars between  the'white man and the Indian  raged up and down the Ottawa.  From 1700 to 1755 the river  wes the "highway" to the north  and- the northwest, and- mhny  famous explorers of Canadian  history passed by what was to-  '.   be Parliament Hill. "  Although Ottawa was officially named capital in 1857, it  was not until 1865 that government departments were moved  from the old capital of Quebec  City. Confederation came two  years later, and the story of  Ottawa since then has been one  of steady growth.  Ottawa today is one of the  world's key capitals. Canadi*:  an representatives are staffing  missions in nearly every part  of the world, and more than 50  foreign countries maintain em-  '"bassies and legations in Otta  wa.'       '    .    -  In the national picture, Ottawa ranks as the fifth largest  city. The population of the city  proper, according tp latest fig-,  ures from the Tourist Bureau,  is 220,241. The population of  Metropolitan Ottawa, according to the Dominion Bureau of  Statistics/is 345,460.  Although ���still''' primarily a  "government" town,. Ottawa  has been undergoing rapid industrial expansion. This iex-  pansion, coupled with a phenomenal Suburban growth, pos��  ed what planners regarded as  a danger to the development of  the city as a' truly national capital of "dignity and beauty."  So,, in 1945, the federal government established the National Capital District. It covers 900 square miles, embracing lands in the "Ottawa-Hull  region, reserved in the national interest for protection and  development.  :   " ."     ,-  The Federal District Commission, a government agency,  has the responsibility for ensuring that Ottawa grows in "dignity and beauty.'* The final  fruition of the ambitious National Capital Plan may take  50 or 100 years. <  ���  YOU CAN BUY YOUR BONOS -for cash or byinstalments*  at yovrneighbourhood B of M branch  \X:;_.".;>.(�� <t_-9*fcr��M*M':>--,-.- v*���;>-- \  '.        .     ..

THEATRE NOISES
Editor: It .is high time the
parents of Gibsons were made
aware of the conduct of their
children in Gibnons Theatre.
In spite of/the efforts of the
'manager it is impossible to sit
in peace and enjoy a show. Th ■>
majority of the children talk
loudly, most of the evening,
seeming not to have the slightest interest in the picture.
^There is one continuous getting
up, pushing past the people
going out for pop, candy, etc.
Before the ishow starts these
youngsters wrestle, throw hats,
pull on the seats, and sometimes break them. Even going
into the show, older people
have to be very careftil or they
would be pushed down the
steps. I have never, ever, or
anywhere seen such mannerless children.
There is a saying, "Children
are a mirror*of their parents."
Well, I don't think these children's palrents would be very
flattered if they saw themselves as these children;
It's  too bad,  and is  surely
hurting attendance at the show.
No onp  wants to  pay  money
to  spend   an  evening in   the
company of hooligans.        *

In a small town newspaper
of Ontario I saw a brief note
of thanks recently. The writer
said:   I.  want   to   thank   my
1 friends who sent'me letters of
sympathy and presents when I ,
broke my arm  a few months.
ago. I was deeply touched and
it made up in some degree for
the accident.   I never knew I
had so many friends.    Thank
you all very much indeed.
.   It was a  nice gesture;  the
kind of thing one is apt to take ,
for granted  and   often  forget'
all about it. Once when attending a village church the minister made, time, to.  congratu-
late a. small boy whose record
. had. brought honor to the whole
village. I told him I thought it,
was a ■ nipe thing tp do. He replied: "It meant a great deal
to that boy ahd; to hi®i people."

Such savings don't just happen. They involve
some sacrifice, definite planning. But as
y6ur dollars mount up you feel a sense of
accomplishment, of getting somewhere, that
makes the effort more than worth while.
Your bank account provides ready cash that

There were about 45 persons  at the meeting vtver which Wes  Hodgson was chairman and  Mrs. J.W. Duncan secretary.  Mr. Funnell gave comparative  figures on school population'  and showed how in 1947 there  were 740 pupils and now  there are 1,423. This meant  more school accommodation  was necessary as the population  moved ahead.  T One thing Mr. Funnell did  stress arid that was the fact so  few people turned out at the  annual" meetings of the school  board throughout the district.  The board v was the largest  spending unit in the area using money from taxpayers and  yet whten it came to an accounting with the taxpayer he or  she showed no interest.  If anyone wanted to find out  what was happening to taxpayers' money the annual meeting  was the place to attend where  the ratepayer if not satisfied  could ask' questions.  Mr. Funnell also commented  on the lack "of interest on part  of parents in.the early day�� of  the attendance at school of  their, children. He said plenty  of them show up when the pupils graduate, t0 ask advice as  to what should be:; done about  the pupil's future. It wa�� then  a bit late to appear Mr. Funnell  thought, because much could  have been done ^t ati earlier  stage if the parent ahd teacher  could have got together.

The campaign under sponsorship of the / Joint Forest Products" Safety Committee who  also sponsor "Safety .Week"  every Spring are hoping to  curb the usual increased accident rate during this period.  Joint committee chairman,  Anthony F. Douglas said most  industrial accidents can be prevented by attention to safety  rules and by developing an  ever-present safety consciousness. "Proof that more workers in the forest products industry are bfedomirig safety conscious is the fact that the accident rate nt the industry is half  what it was ten years ago."  (Special posters and other literature are being prepared by  the Workmen's Compensation  Bo^rd to tie in with the campaign. Pep stalks by Safety  Committee leaders in the industry will -feature the "Check-up"  theme.T '���-,..

Wh  en are spruce cones rspe  The answer to the frequent  enquiry when are spruce cones  ripe, has come from investigations, at the Canada department  of agriculture forest, nursery  station, Indian' HeacI, Sask.  Specific gravity arid moisture  Icontent tests' were ' found by  Dr. W. H. Cram to be reliable  measures of cone and pe^d  maturity for White spruce.  It is recommended that ten  fresh cones be tested: by dropping them in a jar,of kerosene  or turpentine. Cones of White  spruce should not be harvested  until eight of the ten cones  float iri kerosene or until nine  of the ten cones float in' turpentine. ,  Yield and germination of  seed, increased with rdpeness  of spruce cones at harvest.  In the three week period before natural seed shedding  occurs the amount of seed extracted from cones increased  40 per cent and seedling production increased 26 per cent.  This indicates that maximum  yield of seedlings was obtained only when ripe cones were  harvested.  ��� Natural seed shedding of  White spruce trees varied from  August 28 to September ,7 in  the 1948 to 1956 period. Cone  maturity tests therefore should  begin not later 'than mid-August. ���"���" '"   ���������': '���   '���' '  British  Columbia  fishermen  caught $8,141,000 worth of fish  in August to record an increase'.  of   11. percent compared .with  August 1956.   .

Every month sees  completion of modernized older  premises and the opening of new  buildings.   *  In the past few-.years more  than 7,000 new guest rooms have  been added, bringing total hotel  bed capacity to more than 275,*  000. By 1958 it is estimated the  total increase will be at the 10,  000 mark, and at the steady rate  of construction in every province, a total of 300,000 beds is  in sight. y  And today's guest hasi the added assurance that his hotel is  safer than ever before against  fire. Safety conscious owners are  investing hundreds of thousands  of dollars in fireproof construction methods, in fire resistant  service material and -furnshings.  The old-fashohed fire rope on  bedroom windowsills is obsolete  In its place the modern hotel isT  strategically equipped with fire  extinguishers. Metal smoke barrier doors in corridors minimize  the hazard of suffocation by  smoke and fumes.

It is the week also to pay tribute *to the Sechelt Volunteer  Fire    Brigade,     members    of  which  are  neighbors  and  fri��ads, who are on the job 24  hours a day serving not only  "Sechelt, but the adjacent communities of West Sechelt, Selma Park and Wilson Creek.

In Case of Fire CaSI the Telephone Office  CNA V Enloli and other vessels of the  Canadian Department of Fisheries have carried  out extensive research into  the oceangoins habits of Pacific salmon.  Where do B. C. salmon spend their ocean life ?  THE PACIFIC SALMON is the most important of the continuing great fishery  riches of the entire North Pacific Ocean. That is why the Department of Fisheries  of Canada is doing everything within its power to ensure that the harvesting oi the  widely distributed salmon stocks shall remain perpetual and rewarding.  One of the most intensive high seas research programmes has been undertakeri  in order to determine whether salmon which originate in North American streams  intermingle on the high seas with those which come from streams entering the  Pacific on the Asiatic we^t. "    .  Last summer, for the second successive season, Canada's fishery scientists���  , co-operating with specialists from the* United States and Japan���carried out test  fishing operations over an area of half a million square miles. These investigations  revealed that salmon oh the North American side are found in great numbers as far  north as the Bering Sea; the southern limits of the salmon's ocean habitat are  apparently governed by rising water temperatures.  Such co-operative programmes, with-their resulting exchange of research data,  provide the information so essential for the proper management of the salmon stocks  which support a vital Canadian industry. *  Department of Fisheries  op-rr  OTTAWA  HON.
