Array V4$t9r4,a,  B.  a  GOLDEN   CUP AWARD  COFFEE  at DANNY'S  COFFEE HOUSE & MOTEL  Gibsons ��� Ph. 886-9815  SERVING THE GROWING SUNSHINE COAST  Published  in Gibsons.   B.C.     Volume 16, Number 30, July 26,  1982.  7c per copy  Waterway signs needed  motel man Ed. Lowe says  B.C. shoulJ be thinking about  waterway signs as well as highway signs, not only for persons  travelling the waterways in their  own boats, but also for passengers using coastal ferries.  The v suggestion. comes ; from  Ed Lowe of Pender Harbour,,  vice-president for Resorts, Auto  Courts and Resorts Association  of B.C.    ' YYY''. '���...  He said that while most persons travelling, coastal -waters  should be able to read charts  and maps and hence find their  way about, it would be much  ea sier if signs were put up to  identify various bays, coves and  islands, and much more inform-  ct-ve for their guests who may  nor. knew h_.w. to use the charts  arid maps.     ' '���'.''".-������  Mr. J.owe believed this was  even more important for passengers on ferries between Van-  covyer Island and the mainland,  whereY'.travellers not only lack  maps but often cannot identify  the .'.'islands and ports along the  w��y even" with them.  Signs on the islands along the  main- ferry routes would Be both  interesting and useful, he contended. Y  Meanwhile, the ACRA Highway Signing committee has  made a survey of the Trans-Canada Highway from Chilliwack to  Burnaby, and Highway No. 99 fat  FAMOUS AGAIN. Historic Signal Hill, overlooking St. John's,  Nfld., was the* site where Marconi received his first trans-Atlantio  wireless signal in 1901. It's again in the news because it is from this  location that CBC-TV beamed a live signal.to the Telstar satellite  for transmission to TV networks in England and France.  at  Sunday Schools from- Bethel  Baptist Church, Secheltj and Cal-  vary Baptist Church, Gibsons;  held a joint Sunday School picnic  at Roberts Creek Park, on Sat.,  July 21, with oyer 90 children  and adults in attendance. A very  welcome guest was the warm,  bright sunshine! Many races  were held and prizes and ribbons given.  Danny Nygren and Ricky Sum-  merfelt were first and second in  the race for 5 year olds and under, but all contestants, and those  who were too shy to be contestants, were given lollipops. Stephen Rigby and Randy Walker  placed first and second in the 6-7  year old boys race, and Shirley  Hoehne and Laury Ashford won  first and second prize in the corresponding race for girls.

CAP picnic;   but that did nothing to lessen the enjoyment ot  the bus load of passengers.  Arriving at the Peace Arch for  lunch, it . was surprising how  quickly tables were set and the  kettles singing.  The bus loaded again at 2:30  to continue the trip to White  Rock, Ocean Park and Cresent ���.  Beach; coming back to Semicho*)  Park where members of'brand  11 were waiting. This proved an  enjoyable visit, with tea and refreshments, also ��ce cream generously given by Mr. J. Haining,  manager of Gibsons Co-op store.  All aboard sounded at 5 p.m. and  via Deas Island Tunnel, Oak st.  bridge���then the Bainbridge and  home was reached. Everyone  was a little tired, but all thought  it a grand day and worth it.  i\-  ��� Heffey were the winners for boys  8-9, and Donna MeCourt and Marcia McHeffey were . victors for  girls' 8-9. Ronny -Sumerfelt and  Jimmy Gibson won the race for  boys 10-11, arid Maureen Owen  and Gretchen Lind won for girls  in.ii First and second in boys  12-14 were Peter Rigby and Terry  _- orshner, and Laurel Postlethwaite and Audrey Owen won  for the girls 12-14.  Three-legged races were run  for boys 6-7, Stephen Rigby, Glen  White #and Jimmy. Koike, Randy  Walker; girls 6-7, Shirley Hoehne,  Laury Ashford and Robin Nygren  Judy Newton; boys 8 9, Barry  Holden, Murray McHeffey and  Ricky Stewart, Stephen Rigby;  girls 8-9, Donna MeCourt and  Marcia   McHeffey.  Terry Forshner and Peter Rigby. were first and second in boys'  potato race, and Sally Burdette  and Audrey Owen won the girls'  potato race. Laurel Postlethwaite  was the first to be able to whistle with a mouthful of six large  marshmallows, and Jim Marshall  proved he could drive a nail truer and faster than his fellow  competitors, as did Mrs.* Cassels.  The youngsters had a wonderful time swimming for the next  hour, but were glad to answer tha  call to supper, where everyone  ate well. Ice cream and pop were  served. A rousing sing song ended a lovely day with two tugs of  war and an exciting peanut  scramble.

Left fielder Lowell Pearl broke  up a close game in the, fifth inning with a lead-off line drive  home run to right field and before  the inning ended five runs had  crossed 1 the plate.  Pitcher Don Bison survived  some shaky ea,rly innings and settled dowri to hurl a strong game  for the locals and also chipped in  with two hits.

Games at 2.30 and  6.30.  have been taken to the White Is-'  lets on fishing expeditions and  have been rowed almost- every  day to the .Government beach to  supervise swimming periods regardless of weather.   .  Convenor of the camp committee and director of senior boys,  the Rev.3. NY Allan is completely satisfied that the boats can  be handled safely by relatively  inexperienced rowers. "In my  o��v*n experience, iwhile using one  of them to fish at the White Islets,  I was caught in a sudden southeast gale and I rowed the two  miles back to camp in no danger  at any time and arrived with a  dry boat,", he added.'

The Jobies will be at work  from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, August 4.  New buses  Five new school buses will be  operating in Sechelt School district area for the next school period, it was learned at Tuesday  night's meeting of Sechelt District  School Board in  Gibsons.  Two of these new buses will be  in Pender Harbour area where  Markles Myers will be the operator covering the school routes  when school starts. The other  three buses will be added to the  Sechelt Motor Transport fleet  but it is not expected they will  be available when school starts,  and that delivery could be expected   during October.  The board announced that Miss  Brenda Zimich will be the teacher next term for Gibsons Elementary school grade one. It  also arranged for the purchase  of two work pianos, one for Langdale school and the other for Elphinstone High school.  Girl Guides at Maud Bay Camp  ASSAULT  CHARGED  Charged with assault occasioning bodily harm, Harold Fearn  of Gibsons appeared before Magistrate Johnston, Tuesday, and  was remanded on his own cash  bail of $500. The charge, laid by  Victor Welch, followed an altercation on Saturday. Fearn will  appear in court again on July 30.  DAVIS TO SPEAK  Dr. Jack Davis, Liberal member-elect for Coast-Capilano constituency iri the House of Commons will speak in Gibsons on  August 20. The meeting at which  he will appear has been called  by Gibsons and Area Board of  Trade. It will be held in the Mar-  A Girl -Juide camp under  camp commandant, Mrs. Ruth  Elliott, Mitlenitch district commissioner, ' was held at Maud  r-iy campsite, between Saltery  Bay and Westview, July 8-15.  This campsite is part of a 640  acre farm owned by Mr. and  Mrs. McRae and loaned to the  Girl Guides for camping purposes.  A total .of jl girls representing Sechelt, Roberts Creek, Texada Island, and Powell River  companies, together with leaders  ar'1 staff, housed ther.:selves in  13 tents and cooked meals in the  open on a cook stove and home  made camp stove. In keeping  with this Bush Camp the t!?etne  of pioneers days was carried cut  with instruction in the art of  wool carding and the makinc of  candles with attractive candle  holders fashioned from tin cans.  Days which started at 7 a.m.  iner Cafe  and will be a dinner and  officially ended at  9  p.m.  meeting. were   packed   with  fun,  excite  ment and adventure. After hours  a cow is said to have meandered through the campsite. A beav  cub and fawn were also observer by the girls.  In addition to Miss Susan  Knibbs, Powell River Gold Cord  Guide, who spent a few days in  camp, Mrs. A. W. Williams, Sunshine Ccast division commissioner,; Mrs. H. Newton, Hunechin  district commissioner, and Miss  Beth Hensen, provincial camp  advisor visited the camp. Saturday evening was the climax of  campfire fun when parents were  entertained with skits and camp-  fire singing. Although the food  prepared under the direction. of  Mrs. Helen McNair and assisted  by the Guides was especially  good, the treats of candy and  Jome baking brought by the  guests proved popular, too.  Guides were tested and awarded proficiency badges for swimming as well as passing tests in  s*.*.*imming for first class badges,  knot tying, colors, bed rolls, and  f.ie lighting. As as result of vot-  ii g by secret ballot, awards for  .h��*�� leaders' choice of the best  all-around Guide went to Su*j  t^'Iins of Powell River and for  the Guides' choice of the bes*  i H-around Guide to Erica Ral.  of Roberts Creek company.

Own worst enemy!  r  Screeching tires, racing motors and erratic driving are the major  signs of an immature person at the wheel, claims the Canadian Highway Safety Council. He is his own worst enemy, the Council believes.  Like an animal without logic or reasoning, he gives warning before  he strikes. He can only damage himself if other drivers accept that  warning and stay away from him.  The immature driver, says the Council, gives in to the urge to  show off, to attract attention to himself. He is the same person who  shouts on the streets, talks loudly on the bus and makes noisy rude  remarks to others. The Council claims this person gets no acclaim.  He gets ridicule, disgust and contempt to such a degree that, could he  but know it, the temper that accompanies immaturity would certainly send him on to tantrums.  CHSC's advice is to avoid the immature amateur. Don't try o  educate him on the spot. That's impossible and only tantalizes him.  Let him alone and do your best to escape his idiotic caperings."  To another type of driver the Council suggests that standing on  -your rights. may .make* them ��� your^.rj^sj" if. an.?traffip. -Promptings the  international Slow Down, and Live summer vacation campaign, CHSC  has issued strong warnings to motorists who give little heed to the  danger of driving on the wrong side of the centre line of the road,  or of maintaining an unrelenting position if the approaching vehicle  is driving even slightly over the line.  Take to the ditch if you'have to, but get out of the way. Anything  is better than a head-on collision at even moderate speed, the Council  advises.  Stay on your own side if the road, and give in a little. CHSC says,  don't be a bully. You can't win.  A source of education  The importance of reading good books cannot be stressed too  strongly. Books provide the best part of our education. They add rich-  ness to life. They provide much of our entertainment. Think of the  impact made by just one book, "Uncle Tom> Cabin," on the slavery  issue. !  Today as never before books are essential to us: for the preschool child the exquisite picture books are a joy and a delight; for  school children books provide information and recreation, and they  do the same for adults. Books can help us all do our job better, widen  our horizons, provide us with the knowledge we need tb make up our  minds on vital questions to be effective citizens. They help us whether  we are housewives, farmers, clergymen, mechanics, writers, lawyers,  artists, doctors, teachers, businessmen.  We need books in our homes. Let us buy all the books'we can.  But most of us cannot afford to buy all the books we need. So we depend on libraries. The library is the heart of the university. The library should be the centre of the school. Public libraries are the intelligence centres of our communities.  Until the twentieth century only large cities could afford to pay  from taxes for public libraries with informed librarians and large,  up to date book collections. For the most part, people who lived in  the country did without libraries. The last fifty years have seen a  great expansion of country and regional libraries. From a central  headquarters, often in a city, books are sent out to towns, villages  and hamlets in the district. Even small communities receive a wide  variety of books.  These books move about the region so that libraries are not  "read out." Any book in the region may be borrowed through requesting it from a branch library. Large unit libraries, financed by  a combination of municipal and provincial taxes, require co-operation  between a number of urban and rural councils. This can be gained  when we become really alert to the need for books; books of quality  and in numbers; and for librarians to bring together readers and  books in a dynamic relationship.  Dream-stuff  B* Lm p��*��*��  The mind it is a deep, dark well  Where dreams and visions hide.  And where vague, formless thoughts and moods  Grow down the deep, dark side.  The mind it is a monstrous sky,  Where inky forces fight,  And where dim, eyeless stars in vain  Probe through the monstrous night.  The mind it is an endless way  Where time and distance blend,  And where fixed, spaceless nothings race  To reach an endless end.  Need space    Minister rep.ies t�� Lloyd's letter  to develop  athletics  (By OBSERVER)  The Royal Canadian Legion  Junior Olympics Training Program meet held,at, Sechelt July  It was a success in spite of the'  fact that no suitable? sports field  is available in this area for the  staging; of sports meets,; to meet  even remotely, Olympic standards. 'YYY;Y'Y:Y  . Minimum requirements are:  lever ground, good turf or cinder...track and 440 yard oval.  The meet was held at Hackett  lark, where an improvised 220  yard track was setup by members of Sechelt branch of the  Legion. Without their hard work,  carried out under the supervision of the president of the  branch, Curly Lucken, who is also deputy chairman of the Zone  J. O. T. P. committee, there  wouldn't have been  a meet.  There is however some good  news. We are advised that. a  new 440 yard Olympic track is  being built at Powell River so  that next year our Zone Meet  will be held there. This won't do  much good for this neighborhood, so we-suggest that steps  be taken to improve track and  field facilities so that the J.OT.P.  physical ed programs can be  carried on. As a matter of interest to parents and.others interested in the improvement of  physical fitness among our  younger generation, the part  played by the Royal Canadian  Legion in this worth while effort  should be explained.  The Pacific Command of the  Legion has, this year, set-aside  $10,000 for the carrying on of  J.O.T.P. This fund, derived from  general revenue of the command  and from contributions by British Columbia branches, is used  to provide transportation and  other amenities for contestants  attending the big meet at Empire Stadium, including free billeting.  The Dominion command also  actively carries out J.O.T.P.  piograms on a national level  and this year brought over from  England the chief coach of the  UK.A.A.U. and five other  coaches from the British Isles so  that an adequate humberi:of  coaches can be ^trained, for service in all parts-of Canada. This  a'.tion was helped materially by  the grant that the Legion received from the federal government.  In addition we acknowledge  with gratitude the active support  which has been forthcoming  fiom the department of educa^  tion under the Hon. Les Peterson and from, Jim Panton, director of community programs in  the same department.  As an indication of; the success of this training plan, it is  expected that this year about  15,000 young people will partici  pate in the various meets at  bianch level in B.C. Winners at  the zone meets are taken to Empire Stadium for the finals.

Garden Bay, rj.C-  Dear Sir:  This will acknowledge your letter of July 7. 3962. I am very  surprised to read your' statements to the effect that the Society did not make the decision  regarding the "closing or replacing of St. Mary's." This ties in  with the general opinion expres  sed in some letters received re-  ; cehtly "from your area, errone-  cusly indicating that the proposed closure of the present hospital is something that was decided on recently by the government. .Therefore, I deem it ad-,  visable to set the record straight  and point out that, due to your  involvement in the matter, you  should be -well aware of the following facts. '<������:������  Under date of Nov. 15, 1959,  you presented to me a brief outlining the urgent need for the  "reconstruction of St. Mary's  Hospital, more centrally located  near the Village of Sechelt . . . ".  The letter of transmittal was  signed by yourself as president,  St. Mary's Hospital Society. In  the absence of any information  Rees writes on medicare  Editor: In keeping with general policy, your paper deals  with today's medicare question.  In all probability some plan by  now.will have brought both sides  together. " y  The fight in Saskatchewan is  by no means local or provincial,  for we find the whole of North  America with Canada from Newfoundland to Victoria deeply involved. Moreover, it's hard to determine whether the issue isn't  primarily political rather than  medical. The percentage of NDPs  favoring the doctors would probably be about the same as "the  percentage of other political  faiths favoring the Saskatchewan  government.  We have the question of propaganda both blatant and subtle to  the point where it's practically  impossible to analyze without  prejudice. More cold reasoning  and less emotion about a noble  profession might be in-order.  Long before Lloyd George introduced his National Health bill  TX&wufajdb  Prepared by the Research Staff of  ENCYCLOPEDIA    CANADIANA  Where were the first sleeping -  cars developed?    v  One of the world's earliest  si eeping - cars "was designed * in  Hamilton in 1857. Before that  time there was little night travel.  The idea spread very quickly,  however,- and within just two  years Pullman sleeping cars based on the Canadian design had  gone into production. An early  sleeper was far from comfortable. Sleeping on double-decker  bunks, the passengers were kept  warm by a pot-bellied stove in  the middle of the car.  What causes Aurora Borealis4  Aurora Borealis, more generally known as Northern Lights, is  a phenomenon frequently seen  in Canada. Cree Indians thought  they were'camp-fires lit by the  gods. To the Eskimo they were  spirits playing ball with the skull  of a walrus. Norsemen believed  they were reflections of sunlight flashing on the armoifr of  thi. Valkyries as the maidens car  ned the dead to valhalla. Modern-day scientists believe them  to be caused by the emission  from the sun.  Why did the U.S.A. declare war  on Great Britain ia 1812?  On June 18, 1812 the United  States of America declared war  on Great Britain stating its  grounds for this action to be the  violation of American neutrality  in territorial waters by British  naval vessels, the impressment  of American seamen for service  in the Royal Navy, the blockading of American ports and the  continued enforcement of the  British Orders in Council, which  ��� like Napoleon's Berlin and  Milan decrees ��� were intended  to prevent neutral countries  from trading with opponents in  the Napoleonic wars. In addition  to these causes, American opinion was influenced in favor of  war with Britain by the nationalist and expansionist sentiment*  oe. certain politicians from the  western and southern states and  by the action of British authorities in Canada who had aided the  efforts of Tecumseh and the In  dians to resist white settlement,  in the old Northwest.  Where was Canada's first  road built?  There were no roads in Canada before the coming of the  white man. The Indian had never  seen or used wheeled vehicles.  And like the Indian, the ear'y  settler generally travelled by water. The first road was built in  ?606 by Champlain between Dig-  by Cape and Port Royal. It was  ten miles long and surfaced with  logs.  in Commons, many of our min-  negotiated satisfactory . working  agreements with the doctors. The  ing districts in South Wales had  House of Lords pandering to the  profession rather than to the  worker, without at that time a  very strong union, tried their best  to kill the Lloyd George proposal.  But the British premier beat the  Lords and the doctors to their  credit gave their wholehearted  support to the, scheme. The Lloyd  George proposals were subset  quently amended  at least twice.  The Saskatchewan strike has  been discussed on radio stations  and in our press every day since  July. 1. Some nights ago one irian  using his local radio station pointed out he's read ah article in his  paper sent in by a Vancouver reporter on the spot; the closing  paragraph struck him very forcibly. When he got home he went  to read the paragraph to his wife  from the paper delivered at the  door, but to his amazement said  paragraph had been deleted from  the paper. A sample of today's  reporting. The editor in his sanctum would know better thin the  reporter in the field.  According to Vancouver press  reports, the C.C.F. convention  gave Dr. Dalgleish a fair hearing/ this was iii marked contrast  to the stormy reception Premier  Lioya received in Regina, last  month.  We are asked Xo think of the  doctors as noble professional men  but strange to state some doctors don't place their counterparts on a very high moral plane,  to the.-. contrary I couldl only assume that you were acting with  the approval of the board: of  trustees and the tacit support  oi the mem hers of St. Mary's  I.'ospital Society.  On Nov. 24, "1959, the deputy  minister of hospital insurance  wrote to you acknowledging receipt of the brief "supporting  >our hospital society's proposal  -<>!���, construction of a new: hospital to replace the existing St.  Mary's Hospital." You did not  query this statement at the time  ���you received the letter or subsequently on Feb. 4, 1960, when  you and other representatives  met with Mr. Cox and other B.C.  Hospital Insurance Service officials in Victoria.  As a result of your submission  on behalf of the society I gave  the project "approval in principle." My telegram to you o_t  July 15, 1980, read, in part, as  follows:.  "I am pleased to advise that  tho provincial government has  approved in principle the construction of a new hospital to  replace the existing one ..."   .  Your letter to the B.C. Hospital Insurance Service of Aug.  9, 1960, referred to minor local  difficulties regarding exercise of  responsibility for planning and  concluded as follows:     ,  "Please   rest:  assured that  ;  wili do my best to keep harmony  ana    will - definitely   lay    down  anew the manner in which this'  matter must be handled.   '"'. *  "I feel thai everyone concerned is so jubilant over obtaining  approval- in principle that this  should not be too difficult."  Subsequently, on Oct. 21, 1960,  you wroii to the provincial secretary requesting that a plebiscite be held; regarding the estab-  lishment of a hospital improvement district: Then, on Oct. 25,  1960, you wrote as chairman of  the hospital board to the B.C.  I tspital Insurance Service requesting government approval of  a site for the new hospital on  part of the Sechelt Indian Reserve. None of your- letters commented on or objected to the  aforementioned references to the  replacement of the present hospital!:.;'  In addition, to the foregoing indications of your official posi,  tion, I wish to remind you of the  personal comments you made to  a B.C. Hospital Insurance Ser  y;ce representative who survey.  depending dn^whose oxis-gqred, ^fiS the Sechelt peninsula in earlv  for here W'find in a report^rcun     March, I960.  At that; time you  Leeds, England which says "Most  Canadian; doctors feeytnat British  doctors, are coming -mox*eior tne  money than to help the people of  Saskatchewan," I don't know  whether that carries more weight  coming from a professional man.  Let us try and strip the question of humbug. The AMA and  their kind are pumping money  into Canada as well as using all  the influence they can to thwart  President Kennedy's medicare  plan.  Doctors are human beings with  varying degrees of honesty and  integrity. We had doctors in Fer-  nie in the early part of this century who called '-in- a 'home and  due to circumstances left a $5  bill rather than a prescription for  medicine. We had doctor and hospital agreements in the Crow's  Nest Pass that were workable  and respected by. doctors and patients alike. We know there are  those among us who would call  a doctor at any hour for the most  trivial thing, but that's one of tho  many flies in the ointment.  I cannot see the professional  man any nobler than the non-professional, inasmuch as. they  struck regardless of service fearing possibly their $18,000 plus per  annum average salary might be  crimped. Here's hoping a good  workable medicare plan will b2  the outcome.  Dave Rees  very . definitely expressed ^yourself as being in favor of the- replacement of the present hos.  pital by a new one located nea-  Sechelt. ��������������� y  In view of the foregoing T am  somewhat puzzled vover the complete reversal that has taken  place in your attitude toward  this matter. I feel that you  should make .1 full and frank explanation in this regard.  I note that a copy of your letter to me of July \7, 1962, was  sent to various newspapers and  you have every right to do so.  Fowever, I would suggest that  you should nave given the press  the whole sto-y by making available copies of the aforementioned material.���Yours very truly,  E. MARTIN, minister of health  services and hospital insurance.  WOOD CHEMISTRY  The place of wood in the  everyday life of the community  and the world economic scene is  an increasingly dominant one.  Unlike other natural resources,  it is not a wasting asset. We  need never run short of wood as  long as we manage our forests  wisely. New uses for wood are  being constantly evolved. Some  of these uses other than lumber  are cellulose products, wood  sugars, ethyl alcohol, plastics,  solvents* oils, synthetic rubber  and liquid fuels.  Some tips for good driving  Canadians died accidentally at  a rate of more than one an hou*  over the past Dominion Day  weekend, and bO of the 85 deaths  were caused by traffic accidents  according to the All Canada Insurance Federation.  The federation, which represents 220 fire, automobile and  casualty insurance companies,  recommends the following tips  from professional drivers for  safer motoriig throughout the  summer:  When driving a strange car���  or if someone has used your car  recently ��� re-adjust the seat  and rear-view mirror.  A straight posture behind the  wheel is safer and more efficient  than a slouching one.,  Hands should grasp the rim of  the steering wheel, not the  spokes; most professional drivers suggest a fairly high position  on the wheel.  Most restful position is with  the upper arms vertical and the  elbows fairly close to the body.  Driving should be done when,  you are relaxed and alert, limes  of emotional stress or unusual  tiredness are unsafe for driving.  Always start the car slowly;  stop smoothly and slowly. Quick  stops, except in emergencies,  are the mark of a careless driver.  Watch the car ahead of you  and the one ahead of that; check  the rear-view mirror frequently,  especially when slowing or stopping.  On the open road, keep up  with the traffic; don't faH behind or try to beat it.  On long trips, take frequent  rests and don't overeat; always  keep at least one window partly  open, even in cold weather.  Always drive more slowly at  night.

LETTERS  to editor  Editor: It would seem to be a  divergence from accuracy for the  Lloyd-Jermain Axis to state that  they have not tried to prevent  the building of a hospital at Sechelt, considering that in a letter  to the Minister of Health and at  least two meetings they forwarded many reasons, mostly r**-'*-  leading, why such a hospital  should not be built. Also most ot'  their followers in the Pender Harbour district voted against the  building of such a hospital;  Mrs. Jermain also estates that  the Sechelt hospital "would be of  little value to them." OK. What  is sauce for the goose is sauce  for the gander; St. Mary's Hospital is of little use to us; and  yet the L-J Axis did in fact do a'  they could to prevent the Sechelt  hospital being built.  .   J. S. Browning.  jected by a honeybee's stinger is  just as poisonous as a rattle  snake, but there are a lot fewer  drops. While it delivers only a  minute amount, the bee's method  is -unique. The stinger complete  with poison sack and muscles  rips out, killing the bee.. But the  muscles which remain with the  sack will go on squeezing poison  through the stinger for as long  as, 2G: minutes.  The normal reaction.'to this  poison is a burning itch. Bee  keepers have survived 200 stings  at one time. But for some people  a few stings can be fatal.  It's not the poison that does  ; the killing in'.these cases, says  . Dr.W. W. Bauer, director emeritus of health education for the  American Medical Association.  Rather, the proteins contained  in the venom sets up an allergic  reaction.  Just one sting can sensitize  some people and a subsequent  sting, even months later, may  trigger asthma, shock or, deatn.  Some physicians say it is quite  likely that more people die of  this type of reaction than is nOvV  realized. The sting is usually so  small that, it is sometimes overlooked and death is recorded as  due to heat prostration or heart  failure.  Unless we exterminate the  animal kingdom, which would  probably bring about worldwide starvation,, it is impossible  to avoid their bites and stings.  About all we can do is maintai.i  our defenses.  Typhus, plague and other  dreaded diseases, for instance,  are known to be present in the  rat and mammal population of  several southern cities. Only the  veneer of our civilization, our  sanitation measures and-health  habits, prevent such diseases  from spreading to the human  population' via fleas, mosquitos,  and other biting insects.  As for the venomous beasts  and infected pets, staying clear  of their fangs is mostly a matter of common sense ��� not teasing ' dogs, being alert in the -  woods and fields for snakes and  spiders: When they do bite, excellent medical counter measures are available. A speedy  visit to a doctor is always the  .-best antidote:  Y' So !4>seems; that while man  might 'be master of the earth  he must still come to grips with  las ancient animal antagonists.

Tha  4 'x 4" posts are for the corners,  the 2"x 4"'s are intermediate,  posts. ' ���  The "scab" should be sealed  to the intermediate posts with  tnick lead or, oil paint, aluminum paint or high-grade exter- '  ior house paint primer. This protects it against deterioration.  , A simple way to set the posts  exactly four feet apart is to cut  a piece of lumber four feet long  to use. as a spacer.

This will show the position of the  panel on the post. To install the  panel, position it between the  posts by setting it on blocks  which will hold it about 4" above  the ground line. Nail the opposite  stop first to the post, then to  the panels. . ' ��� . \ ' ���  Trim posts flush with the top  of the panel. Cut and nail the  top rail to the posts.

THIS SUMMER  BE WATER  WISE!  Some Qs. and As.  ��n use of freezers  The housewife is apt to be con-  v fused .���< and understandably so  Y_ about what to do and what  not to do with different... types  of food ��� whether it be canned,  frozen, dried or chemically preserved. How long should frozen  food be kept? Can it be thawed  and refrozen? Should food be  left in the can or placed in another container after the dan v*  opened?  Let us start our question and  answer quiz; with the nation's  number'one dessert-rice cream.  (Q) Should ice cream be re-  frozen once it has become ;soft  and runny?  (A)YN'd., It is a particularly  good medium for the growth of  bacteria.   * ';."  (Q) Should frozen food be re-  frozen and kept if it has once  been allowed to thaw?  (A) No. It should be used as  soon as possible. Contrary to  public opinion, frozen food is not  normally sterile and will spoil  like raw food when thawed. If  it "contains bacteria, these, will  multiply during thawing and  continue to. live when the food  is refrozen. Remember, freezing  does not kill bacteria, it simply  pr events their multiplication.  (Q) .Is it dangerous to leave'  food in opened cans?  (A) No. At one "time it probably was, but today in the majority of cases it is safer to keep  in cans than to put it in a dish  because the can is sterile. The:  lacquering of the can's interior  has done away'with the risk of  metal poisoning.   *  (Q) How. long should frozen  food be kept, in a * home ���refrigerator or a freezer? Y  ��� ��� (A) Food .should not be -left in  the freezing compartment. ��� of  oyur refrigerator for longer than  two weeks. On account of lower  temperature, it may be kept  safely for..several months in a  home freezer unit.  (Q) .Is there any general rule  to follow when buying frozen  fcods?  (A) Yes.

FAVORITE   FARE  Willows are a choice item in  the winter diet of many birds  and animals. "I know of no other  group of. trees which is as important in the ecological picture  for sustaining, our wildlife in  winter," writes W. Phillip Keller  in the Western Wfeekly Supple-  merit. Everything from the ponderous moose to the petite chic-  a dee depends on willow in one  way or another to survive the  bitter cold, of ,qur western winters. Without doubt; the favorite  wtriter f&re for>moose,-..elk,~deer,  rabbits, porcupines and beaver  is willow, but especially the red  willow,; sandbar, willow, western  black willbw arid the dwarf willows of higher levels.  {Church   Chuckles   by CARTWRIGHT  (S>C-H AS.

Formerly, King George highway to Whalley and New Westminster was signed highway 99.  A turnoff to Vancouver, via the  Deas Island tunnel, at McLellaa  road intersection, was signed  highway 99B. Now the Deas  route is 99; and the King George  is 99A.  Previous to the change, thousands of maps had been printed  by ACRA members in the .lower  mainland, by oil companies ���  even by the government itself ���  showing the King George as 99  and the Deas throughway as 99B.  "There has been a flood of  maps and literature in anticipation of B.C.'s biggest tourist  year, a reflection of the Seattle  World's Fair. These were printed before the Deas'������ throughway  was completed, and carried the  old numbers,5' said Mr. Di-  Marzo. "Our people and the go.T-  ernment were doing all they  could to attract tourists and to  give them good guides to the  lower .mainland and the accommodation available to them.''  "The new signing, for strangers following route numbers as  we all do in an area that is new  to us, will take them over a different route than is shown on  the maps."  ACRA will ask the government  to avoid making badly-timed  changes of this nature, said Mr.  DiMarzo. "If changes are to be  made ��� and they can hardly be  avoided ��� the tourist industry  and government mapmakers  should be informed in time for  maps and other literature to conform," he added.

A train trip is a delight to a  child and a plane flight is a  never-to-be-forgotten experience  But most families, with almost  seventy percent of Canadian,  families owning a. passenger  car, use it for vacation travel.

Participation is the basis  ot enthusiastic co-operation.  Parents travelling with little  folk have found it very wortff-  . while to write aheadx and make  overnight reservations at recommended hotels, resorts or cabins.

There is nothing more upsetting than an unsuccessful search for a* place to  sleep with cross, over-tired children constantly wailing. "Wh ��n  are we going to get there?".  Fatigue quickly produces irritability in both adults and chil  dren. Arrange a rest period after  the noon meal for all the family  every day.

In order to cut on costs  the family may want to "eat  out" only one of the three meals.  Ic at all possible have the din-  mr meal at a good restaurant  or hotel. An-early start can-be  made if breakfast .is eaten at  the place where, the family ha<*  stayed  overnight.  Travelling with a small baby  h    easier   in   some   ways   than  ~ travelling with an active young-  stei who is "into everything."  Clothes for travelling for children should be, comfortable, durable and washable. Seersucker  or jersey sun suits need no  honing, and corduroy overalls  for cooler days are an excellent  choice for the same reason.  Tuck the dirty clothes directly  into the laundry bag. Do as little washing on the trip as possible. A jar of water and a wash  cloth and towel to wipe small  sticky fingers is worthwhile.  Bibs and paper handkerchiefs  are good ideas too.  Small children get tired travelling in a car and mother and  dad must be willing to stop fairly  often. Take son or daughter for  a walk to stretch little legs. Get  tested drinking water in the  morning and keep a supply of  paper cups.  The driver's attention should  rot be distracted by anyone ia  the car. Mother will have to  keep the children amused from  time to time. Favorite songs,  guessing games such as "I Spy,"  Memory- Games -such as -"I  Facked My Trunk," Story Telling, Riddles, all help to pass the  time on a long stretch in the  car. If at all possible, arrange  the luggage so a small child can  lie down on the back seat 'and  have a sleep when he needs a  nap. .   y  This advertisement is not published or displayed by the Liquor Control Board <v by the Gavernment of British Columbia  10-18  Pleated princess ��� most feminine, flattering shape of summer!

You never can tell  The commissariat looking after  the food supply for the United  Church Women's gala fete Wednesday of last week ordered more  strawberries, so it was thought,  than was needed. However before  the fete had really got into top  gear, the commissariat was urgently seeking raspberries to  serve in place of strawberries.  These too petered out and the  strawberry section of the fete  finished up with fruit salad.  Entertainment kept the minds  of some off the strawberries until the respberries arrived. Luck  was with the servers because the  fruit salad lasted beyond the  point of actual requirements.  The fete which was held in the  Christian Education hall next to  the church was one of the most  sucessful the United Church Wo-,  men had held.  Nets eagle  An. injured bald-head eagle  close to three feet tall was netted Monday on the shoreline at  West Sechelt by Bud Fearnley, of  B.C. Telephones repair crew.  He noted the eagle on the  beach in front of his home, and  the fact it could not take off.. On  investigating he discovered it had  a damaged wing. With the aid  of others he managed to net the  bird then turned it over to the  Rod and Gun Club which in turn  presented it to the Vancouver  zoo. Stanley Best, ���-. zoo curator,  will report back to the Rod and  Gun club on the-nature of the  injury the bird has suffered.

(Gerry)'McDONALD  Wilson Creek ��� SS5-&33_3  A 50-eent grandstand show featuring the world-famous RCMP  Musical Ride is the top attraction of the 1962 Pacific National  Exhibition. The big one hour and  45 minute spectacular includes  everything from massed bands  and a human cannonball to the  dazzle and noise of a colorful  fireworks finale.  Nowhere in North America  does a fair, offering so many  free attractions, also offer a topflight grandstand show for 50  cents. A percentage of seats are  available for those who care to  book in advance but the bulk will  be on sale at the gates for 50  cents.  The 32 scarlet-coated Mounties  have already played to capacity  audiences throughout the world.  When the ride last performed at  the PNE in 1858 it was a houseY  full story.  These magnificent horsemen  on jet-black mounts will thrill  the grandstand crowds from the  moment they 'canter into th_  floodlit arena until the thrilling  charge that winds up their act.  Along with this will be performances by Danny Sailor, the  world's, champion logger. Danny  will show his spar-climbing style  that has set the world mark and  then amaze with, his acrobatic  feats at a height of 100 feet.  The crowd will gasp as human  cannonball Hugo Zacchini is  hurtled down the length of the  Ctadium from the mouth of a  smoking cannon. His flash-suited  body is hurtled almost 90 feet  in* the air before he lands in a  safety net.
