Yes, some people who  have not - heeded the earlier  warning/that garbage should not  be dumped there,.have done just  that and made a mess of things.  However the mess has been  cleaned up and while it was being done tracers were sent but  to try to reach the people who  prefer to use Gospel Rock as a  garbage dump ra.ther than as a  beauty spot.  lew supervisor  A major reorganization within  the University of British Columbia's extension department was  announced by the director, Dr.  John Friesen.

The marina problem  Those pictures of Fisherman's Coye and Coal Harbour in last  week's Weekend Magazine, part of the Saturday edition of the Vancouver Sun, should provide a good argument for proponents of better  marina facilities for Gibsons harbor.  The pictures showed a crowded Fisherman's Cove and an equally  crowded Coal Harbour. Some few years ago it would have been the  thing to jaunt from any place in Vancouver Harbour to Fisherman's  Cove. That was before the population expanded and built homes all  the way from Lion's Gate Bridge to Horseshoe Bay.  Yachting and power boat enthusiasts, are now looking around for  some terminus for trips from Vancouver now that all facilities in that  area are crowded. What is more natural than to have a look at Gibsons?  , ���'~Iiaving'had"'tHat''g6bi_'i66k"one comes'"'to' the "conclusion that Gibsons harbour's present limited facilities are .crowded but there is  room for more. There is talk under wayatjpresent for two marina  type facilities, one with a launching ramp.  The last approach to Gibsons Municipal council resulted in a rejection of a proposed marina which would have infringed on the.mud  flats area. It was turned down because of the weight of opposition  at that meeting. How long can such opposition maintain its position?  As the Coast News has pointed out previously, it is not supporting any specific proponents of marinas or opposing any specific residents of the bay area. It is looking squarely at the facts of the immediate future. The facts on analysis do not leave a natural small-  craft harbor unused by present day marine traffic. Gibsons is also  a. natural servicing and food distribution point for a wide area.  It will take an adroit opposition to make a dent in the demands  of the coming situation.  An active mind stilled  John Jacob Grauer, a German immigrant came to British Colombia somewhere before 1886 and became the largest dairy farmer  in the province. Among his sons, the sixth to be exact; was Dal  Grauer who became in his short lifetime a man described by Premier  Bennett as "a model of good citizenship which we might all strive  to emulate." : y -  Such a remark may appear trite to some people but if one stops  to consider the implications in it one could do ho better service to  humanity generally than to strive to emulate him.  A few minutes conversation with him was sufficient to reveal the  great depth in his thinking. He did not wear his intellectual superiority on his sleeve and could in his simple approach observe a defer-.  ence to others which would,put himself on a level with lesser minds.  At the early age of 55 his active mind, was stilled and a mental  vacuum left, one which will not be filled too easily. Here is a man  who has taken a leading part in the Canadian economic scene from  before the days of the Rowell-Sirois Dominion-Provincial 'Relations  commission up to the present, including the more recent Gordon Commission, which also examined the broad economics of .the  nation.  To cite all he had accomplished and all the honors bestowed on  him would fill considerable space. As one of the "captains of industry" he leaves admiration for his efforts even from his left of centre  opponents, who have had their reasons for not being too kindly disposed towards him as B.C. Electric chairman.  Canada as well as British Columbia has lost a prominent citizen  who came from a German immigrant family 7 There are other, more  recent immigrant families in Canada today. Some of their sons may  strive to emulate Dal Grauer. Let's hope they do.  I  O.E.S. Picnic  ide Park - Sun., Aug. 6  Masons & Families Welcome  By ERIC THOMSON  Article 13  While we were in London we  met a lady and gentleman from  Dumfries, who asked us to be  sure and get in touch if we were  in that_city. We did and spent rather an unusual afternoon and  evening with them. They took us  to a garden fete, something we  guessed to be foreign to Scotland, but as it turned out, it was  far from that.  This function was held in the  spacious, grounds of a mental institution. This estate is three  miles long, and embowered ;in  gardens and trees are blocks 'of  buildings, with tennis courts,  football fields, a swimming bath,  a large church and a beautiful  rock garden.  The fete itself included a wide  range Of games essentially for  the extraction of bawbees from  the natives and some of these  were as excruciating as those ;of  the Spanish Inquisition. I made  a mental note of a few for use  around Gibsons.  I was told that this institution  owes its origin to a famous Dumfries mental specialist, and while  now the patients come mostly  from beyond Scotland. I didn't  quite qualify. The patients and  staff were; among those- present  and we had an hilarious time  guessing who was "oot" and who  was ,"in."7        ���        .,,..';._   .    . y  Itstarted to rain; so pur hosts  hearing me mention Sweetheart  Abbey, took us there in the early  evening. This was built by )a  ladyf Devorgilla, great-great-  granddaughter of David 1st, wife  of John Baliol, the founder of  Baliol College at Oxford. She  founded it in 1275 in.memory of  her husband, and when she died  she was buried here, and the casket containing .the embalmed  heart of her husband was laid  to rest beside her, hence the  name.  The abbey is of warm red  sandstone and is now roofless,  but not badly ruined, and could  possibly be restored, but the  number of deserted churches of  much later date now used for  cinemas and garages across the .  Border country, answers that  suggestion.  '���''*���*    *  The interior, is. in grass, kept  like a bowling green, and the  abbey appearsL :;tp.iJhave.>..falle5i  into disuse ^hd~not"��o"r'iiave Keen  destroyed by: the invading Eng- y;  lish . as were Melrose arid- Jed- *  burgh, and in the gentle rain of  . that evening the -name exactly  fitted the old shrine;., r   y  There is another lady ofJ;Dum-  fries district, Bonnie Annie  Laurie, whose home was at  Craigdarroch House, after her  marriage not to the maker of  the song but to another. It sounds  strange, but the way the people  there say Maxwellton, the word  has the same accent as the coffee, not the braes.  "Peebles for Pleasure, Paris  for Sights." I reminded my wife  of this Scots saying so we moved from Dumfries to Peebles, if  you please,- another ancient Royal Burgh, the beloved hunting  ground - of the Kings of Scotland.;  We stayed at a"'-little inn called;  the Cross Keysy also the "Clei-S  kum," this last being the namej  of a gaff used in salmon poach-;  ing. '"'"���'[  *p      -J5 ' j''  The date over the door is 1693J  and in this inn Sir Walter Scott!  visited arid did some of his writ-l  ing. There were just four or five  residents,  and the spirit of the  place   was  delightfully informal  and we found ourselves speaking  with and like the   staff in less  than no time. V  There was with us a shy and  pleasant gentleman, once a miner, now a writer of Scots songs?;  and   scripts for   the   B.B.C.  He'j  showed me what he  got for a  Scots   song,   after  agency  fees,  and as he felt humourously sorry for himself, I told him that he  could do worse. He figured that  with eggs at a penny a dozen,;  as they were in Burns' day, the  poet got in today's money about  ��15,000 for his Kilmarnock Edition.  We took a bus ride to Selkirk,'  and on the way visited Traquhair .  House, the oldest inhabited mansion in Scotland. For generations  it was held by the Earls of Traquhair,  the  family name being  Stuart!    Prince ��� Charlie    called  there on his way to invade England,    for   reinforcements,    but.,  got none as the lads had already  gone, and when he left, the Earl  closed and locked the main gates  behind him, to remain locked until another Stuart should reign.  This  mansion  was a  favorite-  stopping place for the Kings and'  Queens of Scotland, and there is  on view the room once occupied  by Mary Queen of Scots and her  husband Darnley, and on the bad  lies the bed spread worked in  minute, stitches .by.-, her four  Marys, and on the wall nearby  is her coat of arms, carved in  wood,' which she gave as a memento of her stay.  Selkirk was all agog for the  Common Riding. It was, in fact,  "The night afore the morn," and  streets were decorated and dances were pending that evening pre  liminary to the big doings of  next day, which started at 6 a.m.  with the Lad and his Lass riding  the bounds ��� and bringing in the  Borough Standard, followed 'by  sports and horse racing.  Most of the Border towns have  similar Ridings,,the Standard be-,  ing an historical link with Flod-  den, when one lone horseman,  sorely wounded, returned with  ...the Scottish banner and news of  battle.  '.*..���.':*���     *  There is a   far more  ancient  background   for   these   Ridings,  for they date  back to the prehistoric   Beltane   festival   which  marked the longest day. In pre-  Reformation   days    the   priests  tolerated these celebrations, the  Presbyterians tried unsuccessfully to kill them', and the present  more tolerant and possibly more  pagan generation  have made it  in some places a two-day event.  Peebles  itself was rehearsing  for  its  two-day   event   a   week  hence, and on the last night we  were "there, one of the hotel lassies came running to the sitting  room shouting that there was a  pipe band gaun past. A London  lady and gentleman,' and I, who  were in the room, rushed out  into the close, and saw the-tail  end of the band disappearing  round the corner...We followed,  and -when the band entered the  ^ High - Street, the pipers struck  up again. In less time than it  takes to tell it, about 50 children  who should have been in bed  long since, were behind the pipers in column of fours, each four  holding hands and they danced  zig-zag four after four across  the street and back, something  I had never seen before, apparently   unrehearsed,    but    some  thing that they were used to d  ing.

This newly constructed station  is the last word in service stations.  Cliff Motors is Cliff and  Peggy Connors who are known  from Port Mellon to Jervis inlet, having been in the service  station business for a' good  many years in Sechelt and also  at-Gibsons.  There are three pumps, a  3,000 gallon super-pump, a  3,000 gallon Shell pump and  a 2,000 gallon marine gas pump  in a two bay station with a'  paved area 100 feet by 66. feet.  The equipment includes  complete grinding, a new installation; wheel balancing and  wheel alignment also overhead  lubrication equipment. Stock .  to be carried will include  Goodyear tires and batteries  which will place the new service station in a position where  it will be able to -meet  mosx  demands of the motoring public.  One big feature of the new  setup is ths rastrooms with  hot and cold water. Restrooms  are a real necessity in this  area and the arrangement the  Connors have has already  drawn favorable comment  from visitors.  I /- ' :I7  Cliff Connor is an ex-merr  chant navy man starting in  1939 and quitting that type of  work in 1952. In 1954 he moved to Gibsons Where he joined the Shell station there. He  left Gibsons for Sechelt in  1957" where he has been the  Shell agent ever since. With;  him in the' garage he will have  an experienced mechanic.

An iridescent butterfly i; of oversize proportions in shades of  green,' black, orange and white  drew �� box-load of miscellaneous'  gifts' to Miss Sharon Baba last  Friday evening at the. home of  Mrs. R. Hughes. '  Miss   Baba,   daughter, of  Mr.,  and Mrs. K. Baba, who will be!  married on Aug. 19, was honor?  ed by 18 friends at the shower7  Mrs. B. MacLean had fashioned dainty .and realistic roses to  aid with the decor, and the cake  which centered the table was  a  vision  of exquisite art, the pro-J:  duct   of   the   hostess'    talented  hands. Miss Baba is well, known'  in the district, and  was a stu-~  dent at Elphinstone High School.  By A. J.  C.  It must be admitted that a carnation plant does not make the  best showing as an item in a  planned garden about a home,  being wayward of growth and  untidy; the pink, its poor but desirable relation is more compact  and suitable to adorn border or  rockery.  It is as a cut flower for house  decoration, corsage or bouton-  niere that the carnation comes  into its own and has no rival; it  is a flower for special occasions  the year through and anyone who  has bought the hothouse product  in January is not likely to forget  the cost price, which went to  pay the grower for much care  and skill.  The aristocracy of the carnation is shown too by its natural  season for blossoming; after a  first showing in late July it  comes to perfection in the imperial month of August, when the  air of a calm evening is laden  with its perfume.  There would be something  amiss with my summer;��� even  my-75th ��� if I did not have a  couple of hundred of these plants  to fuss over! "Dianthus" the ancient Greeks called tlie carria*7  tion ��� "flower of the gods" ���  and dianthus we call it. Under  that family name Thompson and  Morgan of Ipswich, England,  seedsmen for 100 years, list four  closely printed pages of varieties, sub-variqties, hybrids, types  and strains in almost infinite, subdivision ��� evidence of the great  attraction of this flower down  through the years and the attention given to its culture.  Even that old cottage favorite,  the Sweet William has its place  amidst the aristocrats under the  name dianthus barbutus. So the  choice is wide and the list long  but alas! "vita brevissima," life  is too short to try them all.  One   could  safely  recommend  the old hardy border strain for  the .beginner for it' gives many ��  varied   and   well-scented*   bios- ,  soms  for less care than   many  others  require.  The   true   amateur���the "lover" ��� might pass  on   to'the- Marguerite -which is  listed   as   an   annual   and   wiir  flower in its first year. It is eas-'  ily grown, shows a great variety  of .colors and will survive an or-y  dinary Coast winter under light 7  protection    or   even  none  in   a.7  mild winter. y  I have some opening up now ~  that grew from seed last year,  blossomed,,   freely    and     came:  through to this:.year ~. and my y  place is inferior in shelter to gardens along the shore and lower  levels. y.  Thence my lover of fine flow  ers, might graduate to the more  'delicate French strains such as-  Chabaud and - Enfant de Nice ���  and the French can be trusted-  for good taste and appreciation  of the best. And finally should  he be equipped with a conservatory that can be kept gently  warm in winter I would introduce  him to royalty, otherwise known  as Alwood's Perpetual Flowering. -  It was Maeterlinck who wrote  that a large, pure white carnation, fully double, with lace-edged  petals and divinely scented was  a symbol to him of all that he  thought  worthwhile.  One can  endorse that.

The three of us followed, spellbound, to the place of dismissal,  and on the way back to the hotel,  the London. couple to whom the  pipes and the dancing were  something ~ new, asked me how  I, a Canadian, knew abbutHhese  things.  On our way to Selkirk we passed the ruins of Elibank Castle,  a. Border tower up on. the hill  across the Yarrow, the scene of  a   truly Scots romance.  Once upon a time there lived  a family of the name .of Scott',  off in the hills beyond Yarrow.  The men of the house supplied  the meat by the simple expedient of lifting it on the hoof from  those who had it.  When supplies ran low the  guidwife used to serve a pair of  spurs on the plate as a hint. This  time she did and the son of the  house, -a -braw/ and gallant lad;  took to the hill to fill the bill,  but his luck was out for he was  himself captured by the minions  of Elibank, who doomed him to  be hanged at dawn.  Now the lord had  a  sensible  wife and an unwed daughter, unwed by reason of her nick-name,  "Muckle-Moo'd Meg." The lady  "put the proposal to her lord that  here was the opportunity of doing the right thing by Meg,  so  Elibank, grumblingly consenting,  put   the   alternative   to    young  Scott,   who   indignantly   replied  that  he'd  hang first.- However,  through the night, he concluded  that life was sweet, and he saw  daylight   in   two   senses   when  dawn came, and when the priest  came he found he had a marriage on his hands instead of a funeral. Young Scott .married into  a wealthy family, Meg proved to  be a devoted wife, and they were  the forebears of Sir Walter Scott,  the Wizard of the North.
