Items discussed included possibilities of strawberry production in the area as the meeting  was told of a strawberry now  grown at Mission which can  yield  ��2,000 per acre.'  B.C.'s surplus Tmilk was discussed as well and it was pointed out there was no cheese factory available and much cheese  was imported.  There.Was also too much food  imported into this-country which  could be grown here. It was also  suggested   there   w��is   too  r.va-ii  Students adopt  land which had been cleared and  proved productive which now  was going back into bushland.  Formation of a farmer co-operative could supply a market  foi' produce and a cannery or  jam factory would absorb produce not sold.  The department of agriculture-  will supply a speaker for a meeting at Selma Park hall onJViay  10 at S p.m. His. subject will be  the economic improvement ..of,  your community. A Gibsons delegation will be transported by  John  Grlacrford.  At the monthly meeting of the  Gibsons and District Ratepayers  May 1, at the Kinsmen Hall, it  was decided to hold meetings bi-  riionthly in future.  Any important business arising in the'interim could be dealt  with by the president calling a  special meeting. A. recommendation was adopted that the Sechelt bus could be asked to stop  once more before reaching Granville St. as quite a number of  passengers do not need to go  oh to the bus depot. '  ' There was much discussion on  ���the subject of the wharfage fee.  There is a confusion as to which  boats  are   stifo.ject to  a  charge.  An interesting talk ��� was given  by Les Peterson on preserving  the history of Gibsons. He stressed that if nothing is done to  preserve history # disappears,  especially as our buildings are  of wood and, eventually disinte  grate. Articles and records actually used or made by the pioneers are more valuable as. records than articles brought in by  residents.  He would like to see more pictures or photographs preserved  and copies or actual specimens  of old charters, papers or registers; He asked for a copy of the  constitution of {he. ratepayers  which  will be given to him.  Mr. Peterson exhibited some  interesting relics portraying a  way of living, now past. He hzr>  been promised imany more such  articles once he has a building  of'some sort to house them, he  paid. He reminded the ratepayers association that as a legal  authoritative group it could help  to eventually solve the problem  of preserving history before it  disappeared by providing a place  for the custody of the relics and  records.  Some Good Buys  Some good buys have Ix-en  showing up in the Boy Scout  drive in Gibsons area for paper  back books to be sold at a booth  next to Shell Oil station in Gibsons on Sat., May 6 from 1 to  5  p.m.  The collection has been going  ahead this week with bins in  which they can be placed at the  Coast News office, Supev-Valu  store 'and John Wood's Hardware  Funds derived from the sale will  send the Scouts vaway on a camp-  oree at Powell River May, 13 and  -14.

It is the Ampelochorian Elementary School at Kalamapaka',  Greece.  Students will be sending school  supplies to them in the same  way they sent such supplies to  the first school adopted.

As Tlate as  the  1930's,  sawdust from' the site; of, this long-  abandoned mill was still.used  by   the  school   at   Gibsons   in  'jumping pits.

Some of the pioneers hunted  grouse for the C.P.R., Bowen  Island providing a particularly  good   source   of  this   delicacy.  By 1900 many of titoe preemptions had already been vacated by their original owners.  Arthur Hyde was dead of  smallpox, and had been buried  in the Gibson family plot. Mrs.  Henry Blake,' first woman to  die in the settlement, had been  buried in the first community  cemetery, immediately1 west of  the "Y" in the North Road,  ���near the southern border of  D.L. 914, and Henry Blake had  pulled out. Gone, too, were  Payne, Bradbury, Shepherd,  McKee, Morrow, and the Man.  riings and Smiths.  To offset tfciese losses, gains  were made during these years.  A daughter, Grace, first white,  child to be born in the settlement, .was born to the Glassi-  fords. E. Aslett married Connie  Soames, ; and Ralph Gibson  married a sister, Edith, to link  ���these two pioneer families together.  In 1892 Chuck Winegarden  and Emma Gibson were married, thereby establishing: a  family many descendants of  which are still located within  the borders of what was once  tihje Gibson pre-emption." Charlotte Gibson became Mrs. Mc.  : Comb, and ��� started . a family  just west of the"S" turn on  the highway, on D;L. 903, and  Hattie; second youngest Gibson  daughter, married Albert McColl,1'Jr.;! , ������.������ '7y"-"\'  The year, 1900 brought the  Burns' family to Gibsons,  where for a short' tinie they  lived in the already abandoned-  Methodist parsonage Where the  School hall now stands east  of the. junction of, tlbe; North  Road and the Sechelt Highway.  After a year in the Roberts'  house at Roberts' Creek, they  returned to Gibsons, where  Hugh Burns . purchased the  eouth half of D.L. 1314, immediately    north   of   the Reid  By Les Peterson  Road.

Frontier mortician? obliges, shoots off hats  The parking problem  There are those persons who get quite hot under the collar when  it comes to car parking. They have that right but they should take a  quick look at the other side of the problem. What can one do about  the parking problem in a country which has little level space and usually at points where most traffic wants to rest.  Over the last seven years of village^ council meetings in Gibsons  has this question come to the fore with reasonable regularity and  each time after the initial outburst it has simmered down to a peaceful state to lie dormant until the next time. 7.  ft It looks as though .some sections of Gibsons will be in a perpetual  state of there always being a "next time." Those sections are naturally the shopping areas. True some people will say go up the hill  where there is plenty of parking space. It is also true, that people  have the-right to shop where they so desire and that some effort  should be made to help them. This effort is not the sole right of any  village commission when some things can be done to alleviate the  situation without recourse to official edicts. ,  Urging the RCMP ta^nfprcejjie letter of the law. in this<part of.  the country would most decidedly place officialdom in a very awkward situation. It is just not possible to find the police to do the job  or the place to put cars so they will not be violating some regulation.-  For instance there are two-hour parking signs on Marine Drive as  far as. the United Church corner. Try and keep that regulation-in  force.  For a good part of Marine Drive why only two-hours? Where it  is a busy section, two hours' seems reasonable, but in areas where  there is no "in and out" traffic from the curb for a lengthy space  of time, does it seem reasonable that because two hours have passed  the car should be moved so it can be reparked in the same spot for  another two hours?  Giving parking tickets for dead parking for a. long period of time  is a lost cause. It is cheaper to dead park on the street and pay a  nominal court fine than it is to pay a garage to look after your car.  Whoever has the solution to the Gibsons parking problem can  have sufficient, space in the Coast News if they care to write it for  publication. If they come up with a bright.idea^there will be some  pleased merchants, village councillors and car drivers.  l    ���  _   A peep into the past  A peep into the past through an old newspaper,is always interesting. Take for instance a Hamilton Spectator of Thurs., Dec. 19,  1907. Those were the days of the nickel theatres with their jerky two-  reelers and intermission songs with the aid of slides depicting the  theme of the song. The younger fry were in their glory dashing off  to see the Saturday afternoon show, and for a nickel only.  At that time Haydn's Creation could be presented in the Drill  hall with a chorus of 300 and an orchestra of 36 with an admission  price of 25 cents with reserved seats at 50 cents.  Allan Line and CPR Steamships advertised trips to Britain at  $27.50 steerage, second class, $37.50 and up and first class at $45  with the crack liners a little higher. True it took an average of eight  days. Now by jet it takes less than six hours from shore to shore.  There were more banks then than now. Remember the Traders  Bank and the Bank of British North America? Hotel Navarre in New  .York advertised rooms at $1.50 per day without bath and $2.50 with.  Suites ranged from $3.50 per day. Think of Hotel Vancouver now at  abov7 $14 a day.  A brick cottage was advertised at $1,450. It had seven rooms  with four bedrooms on a 30 x 100 ft. lot. Today the lot would cost  more than that without any building. A three bedroom house was  renting for $15 a month.  On the moral side the wickedness of a great city was brought  home to people of Ottawa South one Sunday when a city snowplow  was seen at work in their midst. The poilce force was called out and  was on the point of arresting the driver for desecrating the Sabbath  when it was explained that as the suburb was now a part of the capital the snow was being cleared in order to allow people to get to  church.  In the food emporiums were listed 100 dozen oranges at 5 cents  a dozen; 22 lbs best granulated sugar at $1; butter, 32 cents lb.,  cheese, 17 cents, lard, 15 cents. Hams were 14 cents a pound whole,  sausages 10 cents a pound, fresh eggs 25 cents a dozen. The list could  go on and on.  A peep into the past is profitable even if it only recalls memories  of a period in which international affairs did not loom as large as  * they do today. It was a quiet period with the chief excitement being  a flood of immigrants from Britain.  By ERIC THOMSON >  We sailed from San Francisco  in the evening, and as we .cleared the Golden t Gate, the lights  came on all around they'Bay, a  memorable &ght. Next-morning  we were well on pur way to/Los  Angeles, under a!blue sky-and a  blue sea, and the air .was as warm  as it gets with us in the middle  of summer. All, day we sailed in  sight of low, barren hills, arid in  the evening turned into Los Angeles harbour,, the name of the  place being Wilmington. The7next  morning my wife and I took n  look at the vast extent of,' Los  Angeles* and decided to go to  Hollywood. This entailed a 30-  mile bus ride to the city centre  and another, not quite so long.  to Hollywood and Vine. We had  lunch there, arid a look around  and were not impressed, but we  were.impressed when our bus on  our homeward run got into the  full stream yof evening traffic  on a freeway. I never saw such  a combination of numbers .and  speed. Our driver told me 7that  one got used to it, but the cumulative effect must produce a  nervous  tension.  Los Angeles is not, like San  Francisco, a compact, gracious  city, but a collection of communities, each with its own business  district spread over a . dusty  plain, bristling with oil derricks.  The general picture was miles,  and , miles of Hastings Street  East.    ' ..//  The next day a party of five  of us arranged with a car owner to have him take us to Mar-  irieland, an ocean zoo, quite a  few miles along the shore, but  still part of Los Angeles.  This turned out to be a beautiful park on a headland over the  ocean, the central building housing two ~ huge glass-sided circular tanks containing over half  a million gallons apiece, and we  could see what was going on inside at three levels and at the  top. The one tank was full of  fish, thousands of them, from a  herring to a 200 lb. seaybass, and  the other contained threeywhales  and four dolphins. Tlie other  main building was a semi-circular theatre set in the hillside,^  and looking down on a large salt 7  water pool and over that out to  sea. "��� Every place where flowers  cbuld grow was planted with  them, and everything was spotlessly clean, even the railings-  were being wiped down.  We collected our driver, and  asked him to take us to where  we could' have lunch. We sped  through freeways, highways and  byways and dhded up at a very  nice wayside cafe where (.our  English friends, under my wife's  guidance enjoyed a lunch which  fhey themselves would not have  thought to order, not being familiar with the names of things.  GROWING FISH  Farming the sea is not a^  fantastic as it sounds. The Scottish Institute for' Seaweed Re.  search has demonstrated th3  plant and fi-h. production by  using fertilizers. For example,  possibilities of increasing both  flounders transplanted into a  fertilized protected arm of the  sea have grown about four  times as fast in length and sixteen times as fast in weight as  those   not transplanted.  160 FIRES  DAILY  *  Each year, more than 66,000  Canadian homes are damaged  toy fire ��� an average of 160  fires every day. Property loss  is estimated at $27,000,000 according to the All Canada Insurance Federation which represents 220 competing fire,  automobile and casualty insurance companies, in Canada. Of  flhe 400 Canadians who will  die in residential fires each  year, aFout half are children.  Our driver, a most agreeable  young man, said that he would  like to give us a surprise, for  the afternoon, arid.that he would  take us to Knott's Berry Farm  We travelled miles through the  flat countryside and eventually  found ourselves in the midst of  orange groves with the oranges  ripening on the tree, and then  turnedl in to the farm. This was  in, fact a re-creation of a, frontier town of the Gold Rush days  and it had everything, dance hall,  girls, ��� general store, saloon,  gambling ���>. hall, gaol,' graveyard,  everything. '  In the "depot" stood a real  old-timer "Denver and Western"  locomotive  with three���'. cars .and  FROM  THE  Printed  Word  FARMERS TAKE THOUGHT  Farmers in the United States  appear to be seriously concerned about that country's policies  of dealing with agricultural  surpluses.. They are gradually  discovering what the non-farming -consumers knew long ago,  that support prices, soil banks,  government controls and direction are not satisfactory substitutes for the free market.  Naturally, -there are several  plans for dealing with the  farmers' problem, and all may  not be workable. The newsworthy development is that the  .plans are now being advanced  by the farmers' own organizations- and not by the federal  agricultural authorities. The  main, purpose of the new plans  is to get rid of the surpluses  of major crops, in which some  nine billion dollars of taxpayers' money is now tied up, and  thus get back to prices set by  the old-fashioned method of  supply and demand.  No group cf farmers has yet  proposed - getting along entirely without government intervention, but it is possible that,  if '.,'���' ttiey find tlhtey" can" solve  .some of their problems, themselves, they will be encouraged  to press for more freedom and  finally to- remove the burden  of agricultural surpluses from  the shoulders of the general  .taxpayer.  At the moment, the farmers  seem., to contemplate a program of first disposing of the  overhanging surpluses and then  limiting future production to  what their markets will conveniently absorb. They still  look for government enforcement of the second part of the  program, but it might be that  if tfnieir final objective of better incomes were attained, they  might find that they could get  the government out of the  farming business altogether.  Canadian farmers will watch  the new United States developments with' interest, for the  surpluses in that country have  a bearing on agricultural prosperity here. If they can see  farm problems south of the  border solved by the farmers'  own. action, they.may be encouraged to take thought about  similar solutions for similar  Canadian problems.

I think I convinced  them that this was a're-creation  of what had been our way of  life. -  We heard the train arrive, followed by a rattle of shots, and  the word quickly came that there  had been a hold-up by train robbers arid, that one had been killed. Sure'enough,. when we got to  the depot, there was the corpse  on ���the. platform, surrounded by  the crowdy with two men with  Winchesters, arid a top-jhatted  gentleman in atteridanpe. This  last party was the frontier; mortician, and he took charge of proceedings by producing a gun and*  shooting off the hats of the men  who hadn't' removed them as a  token of respect.  These men removed the remains in a wheelbarrow, the only  incongruous factor being that a  little girl, about 5 years old, in  a red dress, went and sat on the  tummy of the' deceased, to make  sure he was dead. _7  Mr. Knoft must have had a lot  of fun in collecting the ingredients for this ghost town, and the  idea struck me that we too could  follow Les Peterson's suggestion.,  to find and furnish a pioneer  home before it is too late.

James   Evans,   a   Methodist  missionary   who   was  born   in  England in  1801 and came to  Canada   in    1823.  Five years  later he began teaching in an  Indian  mission' school at Rice  Lake in Lower Canada. After  ordination in 1833 he was sent  as a missionary to the Ojibwa  Indians on the St. Clair River.  While   there    he  published   a  grammar  of the Ojibwa language. He was sent to tfoe Lake  Superior   region, in   1838   and  was  appointed   general   superintendent of all \Vne Wesleyari  Missionary    Society's     Indian  missions  in the  Northwest  in  1840.

People, were gathering for the  funeral':; service of an old resident, yet their behavior was  strangely, mixed. Sortie few  wore the serious, thoughtful  look of those, who mourn he  passing of a friend; most wore  what seemed to be- an air of  suppressed  excitement.-  A 'strange custom prevailed  in 'twas. village; death was not  oMicial until recognized formally at' a village meeting."Such  meetings were usually; attendr..  ed by a fewydoseV friends but  in this case" the death reached  into every household. All who  lived in the area had been helped in some":��� way,. by the friend  whose passing was to be recognized and the gathering was as  large as any that had been held,  even in the memory of tbie oldest residents.      ;  As the people waited in the  pale spring afternoon, they  chatted in groups; a few groups  had ,the expected air of sadness, but from, many rose i  hum of converse and, every so  often, a nervous laugh.  Finally they all filed into,  the meeting place, took their  Beats," and waited for the village elders to declare the meeting open.  With due formality the preliminaries were performed and  a rustle went through the-  mourners; ordinarily death  was recognized with a few  simple .words of praise for the  deceased and equally simple  words for his successor, and  the death became official, but  today was not .an ordinary  meeting. -  The. deceased was a controversial person; there were  many who could not' forget  now he had helped them, without hesitation, with no regard  for himself, and with, no expectation of gain or even  ifclanks.: This unfailing well of  giving had never run dry in  all the years he had lived!  among them/   /  The controversy arose from .  those who, having received his  help in time of need;; bad perhaps resented such unquestioning generosity, and.so to the  world, held him to be old  fasfriioned, unable to keep pace  with the modern world, and  hinted darkly and' indirectly  of incompetence.  Such is the nature of humans  since time began ��� gratitude  is  a burden  the best of  men  Tribute paid  Mr. and Mrs. W. C.

The opponents of the deceased were impatient to hfave the .  death official,  and 'to  appoint  7 a    successor    and'   when    the  -.friends rose tov praise they  shifted in their seats and scuffled their feet, whispering one  with another, anxious to be  done with -this tedious task  and back to their own .world.  The friends, not wishing the  proceedings to arouse tensions'  that< would only further harm-  the reputation of their friend  and benefactor, sadly resumed  their seats, leaving sincere  words of admiration unsaid,  rather than subiect them to  the tarnishing of inattention,  disinterest and boredom.  .

D. A. MUIR,  Office Manager.  7 y Thousands of mentally competent -Canadian : high, school  students are getting disgracefully low grades simply because they are not bothering  to try, says Calgary superintendent of schools, Robert War-  . ren, in. a recent issue o_ Imperial Oil /Review.  The waste that these "laggards" represent to^ themselves  is obvious, he continues. "But  wfaat is worse they believe that  there is s&me sort of respectability attached to failure, and,  so,; try to convert good students  to this new-found prestige  symbol."  Warren points out that this  is a disturbing situation since  "the next 20 years will probably make greater demands .-  on Canadian brainpower than  any other period in our history."  Warren  finds  that   parents,  teachers,     some .   educational  psychologists      aixdr    students  themselves   have   all   fostered  failure.    Among    some    Canadians  "getting something fo'r  nothing has become a virtue"  ���and this is reflected in their  children's" attitudes. Many parents   and  teachers,   while  not  condoning failure, do not stress  _he importance of success and  "I suspect that many  parents  are/ little - interested   in  their  children's high school careers."  Too    many   teachers    fail   to  arouse 7 the   laggard's  interest  Warren  continues.

As a solution to the failure  problem, Warren suggests the  controversial "laggard" policy  initiated by Calgary in 1952  and subsequently adopted by  several other Canadian, high  schools.

Dismissed. students may appeal to the school  board.  Since the policy has been in  force the number of Calgary  students getting less. than 50  percent on examinations ihas  dropped from 30 percent of th-*  student body to 20 percent.  Warren adds that because the  policy maintains a steady pressure on students, the number  of potential, laggards has also  been reduced.  "Calgary, teachers are working harder and devoting more  time to their profession" he  continues. Some ��� parents t are  showing  more   interest, y *.  Warren believes the policy is  begining to create.a new social  norm where success is respectable. He cautions, however,  that . while schools can dp  muahi, "for a really lasting  :cure, \ve: need the co-operation  of society at large."  "It can be done ..and I am  certain that in time we can  pay the laggard policy the supreme compliment ��� by making it no longer necessary in  our schools," he concludes.

For  an example he cited the case of  unemployment. There were more  unemployed which... we hear  about, yet there-are more people working than ever before.  Surveys, are  made by   people  who lack any real understanding  of the problems being surveyed.  Innumerable questions, are asked  such  as .what   the  consumer is  going to buy, whether the worker finds anything. wrong with his  job and whether people are planning  to  expand .this  year. The  question   sometimes * triggers   a  doubtful answer with the;, result  that the courage arid perception  of y Imaginative; /exploring /.and  daring minds is swallowed up in  the-average mass.  . Today investors play- the   averages rather than the old qualities of study and analysis. The  press is a victim of averages because when the person being in- .  terviewed confirms the story the  press man has already "written"  in his mind, before the interview,  everybody concerned is happy.  Mr. Alsgaard. told the story  of the hot .dog merchant who  "followed the averages" kind of  talk. His smart son said things  didn't look so good so he bought,  less and less and sold'less and  less until he had to close shop/  He stopped thinking for himself.  Mr. Alsgaard found the cost  of living index was arrived at  with as much care and- skill as  any method in use but when you  Don't   say   Bread,   say   "McGAVIN'S"  Y'sK/**#A'-^> sttfy#��s��S> ���v*//y,*f.ps'>s? - ^y^-v^��-w^V>gWa?^j��^��w^;'^y-*'-  % ^&" '"''/ ���* y* *>>**" ,' *.r2.  Local Sales Rep.  Norman  Stewart  Ph. 886-9515  R.R.I, Gibsons  start comparing heating costs  in Sechelt with Toronto and food  costs in Kitimat and on the farm  it is at best/only an average. He  was disciissrng the juse' of "the  index as the supreme symbol in  negotiating wage contracts. He  regarded the use of the index on  a country-wide basis in the same  light as a man who pays 15 percent finance fees on a new car  while he has money sitting in  the bank drawing three percent  or  less.  University professors now admit, he said, they have erred in  using the average , IQ rating of  an individual as a trustworthy  indicator of that individual's value to society. They dropped it.  because too many with a-high IQ  were locked up behind bars.  Now we have electronicsv adding to the myth of magic numbers. The belief has sprung up  that if we build a machine with  enough buttons on it there is no  problem on earth that cannot be  solved. Fortunately we have  ���been through such cycles before.  We have chased after false gods  in other days. Technocracy, was  at one time the thing: but it has  faded from the scene, y .-^  This obsession: with the num-  r bers game, he said, results only  in the exaltation of the average.  The search for the superior is  forgotten/ It is the' -man or woman out in front who must take  your town, your province, your  country on toits destiny.  Was Churchill or Roosevelt an  average   man?    he   asked.  The  only value,of the averageyman's  opinion is that it may be used to .  alert us to our- weaknesses/ We  need, instead, a consuming zeal  for the cult of. the distinguished,  the superior, a zeal to do things.  Today, conformity is cpnsider-  ed godlike, individuality is considered as something dueer, sinister or even subversive,, all be-.. *  cause  it   disturbs ,the  common  complacency or apathy.  People of this .busy growing  Sunshine Coast are not conform- '  ists or average followers. This  has been proven by the fact they  , hewed a settlement out of woods  and hills. The same vision and  enthusiasm must be passed on to  the children. Dropping down to  the, average in the long run will  mean that you will lose everything, he said, in conclusion.

McTavish left last week for Vancouver where he will remain  for a short time before leaving  on a long cruise. His house has  been purchased by Mr. and Mrs.  Edward Campbell, who, with  their infant; daughter, moved in  during the weekend. .-;/  Mrs. R. Eades and Mrs. E.  Wakefield were in Vancouver  Saturday evening to attend an  Eastern Star affair. Both are officers of the local chapter.  Mr. and Mrs. Tim Worthing-  ton who have lately come to the  Coast Highway near the Masonic Hall observed their fourth  wedding anniversary last  week.  The Roberts Creek Raiders,  the group of husky Little League  ers, last' week received their  snappy new uniforms. They are  cream and green and are bound  to draw whistles from the spec-,  tators. Under coaches A. E. Tidball and J. Eldred, the lads have  been practicing.  The Raiders are John, Jim  and Bob Gibson, Kerry and Jim  Eldred, Doug and Sandy Gibb,  Robert and Ron Baba, Gary Flu-  merfelt, Brian Swanson, Tony  Poole, Ken Bland and Don  Marsh.  Girl Guide activities will be  resumed at Roberts Creek under the direction of Captain Betty Allen starting on May 6. The  group disbanded last fall when  their Captain, Doniia Thomas,  left the district.  FUR SEAL  OF B.C.  There are many kinds of,  seals on the Pacific Coast, but  only,the fur seal, is valuable  for its':" coat. This had long  black or gray guard hairs,  each like a small, flat pointed  sword, which keep the animal  warm and help it to float. Below this is a silky under coat  with "hairs so thick that 300,-  000 are Sound on each square  inch of skin. Other seals do  not have this soft under-fur  and therefore have no value  asi fur animals. Fur seals also  differ from other seals in that  they have external ears.  BICYCLE SAFETY RULES  How do most accidents occur? In a few cases the poor  conditions* of the road is a contributing factor/There may be  so much sand that the brakes  if suddenly applied, will cause  tiiae wheels to' skid. The surface  may have had a large unexpected hole, rut or bump, or  the shoulder of the road may  have been weakened or partly  wasted away by heavy rains.  Occassionally a freezing rain  had made cycling on good  pavement very hazardous or a  heavy mist bad made the visibility very low.  ^ V        -*-       ��a-  Some times the motorist or  truck driver 'Who crashed into  the bicycle was almost completely responsible for an accident. But often the. driver was  unaware of a boy or girl on a  bicycle because he did not see  tlhie white oh the mud guard of  the back wheel or the tail light.  'Perhaps it was dusk and the  cyclist was in dark clothes with  no light garment which could  be seen easily. Maybe it was  completely, dark and no headlight or flashlight was attached  to the frame of the bicycle.  Anotfhier condition might have  been that the horn or warning  bell of the bicycle was out of  Ingenious skirt  let-down idea  ������   -i  When sewing for a growing  daughter, allowance must be  made for the letting down of  A rather ingenious skirt-  lengthenahg suggestion devised  by sewing center experts.  When the dress is made, the  lower edge of the skirt is trimmed with a row of gay rick-  rack. One or two more rows  of rickrack, in contrasting  colors perhaps, are placed  along the bottom of the skirt  at intervals of one to two inches. A band of rickrack trim  may also be applied to the collar. The hem itself should be  extra deep.  The generous hem allowance  will pesrmit mother to let down  the skirt several times without having to apply extra  pieces of fabric. What is more,  the rickrack trim will' allow  her, by stitching another row  of rickrack to the skirt edge,  to completely camouflage the  the hem ��� two or three times,  demarcation line.  To allow for width adjustment in the bodice, fabric sections should be cut so that  either the seams may be let  out, or. the center-opening but-  tins. moved over an inch or  two.  Plenty of seam allowance  is a general "must" when sewing for children. Planning for  the letting out of seams and  tucks, tf"_ practical mother will  make her garments? of printed  or patterned fabrics. Stitch  marks, after all, don't show in  a print!

When the motorist  should have heard a warning  sound from the cyclist, there  was no signal given!  If a boy or girl wants to own  a bicycle, in most families it  is a good plan for youngsters  not only to help pay for such  a major investment, but also  be responsible for its care. He  must know and obey sensible  safety rules. If a child, is too  young to ride carefully���he is  too young to ride!  The law holds parents anr  swearable for the actions of  their children. So it behooves  mothers and fathers to know  the traffic rules arid make sure  their, youngsters are familiar  with them  Bicycles should keep to the  extreme right of the road, out  of the way of other vehicles.  When meeting traffic it is pas-  ed on the right, when over,  taking traffic it is passed on  the left. In a town or city the  careful bicycle rider stops near  the curb. . *  '*-K_ ��t* ��V  ***.'      r**       ' "i>      .    -  At an intersection, traffic,  coming from the right has the  right-of-way. When a cyclist  wants to turn left, he approaches the intersection as  near to the centre of the highway as he can, and then makes  the left turn as close to the  intersection centre line as possible.  Stop signals must be obeyed  and also a traffic officer's directions. The cyclist must .raise  one arm when stopping or  slowing down to turn to show  in which direction he is going.  He should use his horn or bell  as a warning signal only when  necessary. It is not a nuisance  device.  Each -cyclist must get along  "on his own steam." Hanging  on to a moving truck or car is  against the law arid very dangerous. To "cut in" in front  of a moving car is also asking  for trouble, and is never per-  missable".  Quite a few accidents occur  when several cyclists are together. They get talking and  forget to keep their eyes and  ears open for cars or trucks or  pedestrians. Sometimes .they  ride   three    or   four    or   five  Coast News,  May 4,  1961.       7  abreast. Single file is the rule  for bicycles in heavy or medium traffic. Ay motorist often  has difficulty iri passing more  than two bicycles riding alongside each other.  Adolescents sometimes start  "clowning" or showing how  smart they can be riding without their'hands on the handle  bars or their feet on the pedals.  The higlhfway is no place for  stunt riding. Wobbling all over  the road is a silly and danger,  ous practice. Keep in a straight  line!  Bicycles are built for one  ���rider and it is against the law  in many areas to carry a passenger. Both youngsters might  be badly hurt in a spill. Better  be safe than sorry!

Need permit  for fires  Before lighting that rubbish  fire remember tfie disastrous  forest fire season of 1960 when  the province lost something  like $50,000,000 of its forestry  natural resource.  The fire season started on  May 1 arid will continue until  the end of October. During  that time special permits are  ��� required before anyone can  light a fire for any purpose  within half-a-mile of a forest  or woodland, except at provincial or commercial supervised camps. Portable pressure  stoves for cooking do not require a permit.  Camipfire permits are available at any B.C. Forest Service  office or any establishment  displaying a Campfire Permits  Issued Here sign or the RCMP  for unorganized areas. In Municipalities such as Sechelt and  Gibsons, the village clerks  supply them.  SCOn'S SCRAP BOOK  By R. J. SCOTTI  fiP^r tab  MACs keep  one  loth  es  JSUfiAR.

SIT TALL  Many compaints of fatigue,  backache and the "crick in the  back" are the result of poor posture habits while driving automobiles, according to the chiropractic profession, which is supporting Correct Posture Week,  May 1-7. "Keeping your spine in  an unnatural position for prolonged periods is contrary to  body mechanics," Dr. Ralph G.  Chatv/in, B.C. President said.  "The best position for long drive*  is to sit far back on the seat.  with the spine resting on the  back of the seat. In other words,  sit   tall."  y;7_.

The MACs are the  Men's Apparel Club of -which  Vince Prewar of Marine Men's  Wear in Gibsons is a member.  On a recent weekend the MACs  held what can be termed as a  convention with' some 56 firms  displaying their- wares on practically every floor of Hotel Vancouver. There was also the usual style show with entertain-  . ment and business sessions during the, three day event.  At a dinner meeting a panel  discussion and open- forum saw  many of the retail section of the  clothing industry present some  views on industry operations.  Mr. Prewar reports the new  models quite interesting and  show a forward trend which will  be pleasing to the younger element. The section for the more  mature types showed"' a conservatism which while not too austere did have a distinction which  was unmistakable.
