(By LES PETERSON)  Bill Fletcher, of Wilson.Creek,  is the first pioneer to make the  district west of Howe Sound his  home for 75 years." *, '  His father, James Fletcher,  had emigrated from England during the early 1880's and had  homesteaded near Fort Qu'Ap-  pelle, then part of the North-West  Territories, some 60 miles east of  the frontier town of Regina.  Bill, the first of ten children,  was born there in 1886. A year later, the family moved west', entering Vancouver on one'of the  first C.P.R. trains.  * *     *  In the Mt. Pleasant district, '  being just cleared of original forest growth for settlement, the  Fletchers made their home near"  George "Glassford and * his wife  Mary, eldest daughter of George  Gibson.  Not entirely satisfied with life  in the rapidly-growing city, and  drawn by prospects ? of pre-emp- >  tion lands to be had here, both  families decided to join the elder  Gibson, who had settled on West  Howe Sound the year before.  So, still tn 1887, the Fletchers  and Glassfords arrived ? in Gibson's bay aboard the tug-boat  Etta White, their household goods  piled on a scow towed behind.  After a winter in a small cabin somewhere near the, present  location of the Coast* News premises, James Fletcher took a  160-acre block of land one and a  half miles from the Gibson home,  immediately west of what is now  the Pratt Road.  * * ���. *  As one means of livelihood.  Fletcher took to logging. Much  of the prime Douglas fir had already been cut by Alex Fraser's  Moodyville Gang, but patches of  fir, and hundreds of acres of cedar remained on the plateau.  After attending the. newly-built  Howe Sound School, located on  the site of the present Gibsons  Landing Elementary School, Bill  Fletcher, at the age of 14, took  a job in his father's shinglebolt  camp. Beginning with greasing  skids and acting as general handyman, he worked up to driver.  The Fletcher skid-roads, which  eventually   covered    the    entire  area south of the Sechelt High-,  the present home of A. T. Charman. *     i     (  A single road led down the canyon side and ended at the beach  along, what ��� is now the Prowse  Road? Two-horse teams drew  sleds-Of four-foot bolts, and four-  horse teams drew logs and  strings of 16-foot long-bolts along  this .road complex until the sup  ply of first-growth timber was  exhausted:  ��� *     *     *  When the Fletcher family moved -*to what was becoming a village at Gibsons Landing, Bill regained at the old home, operating the post office there for a  number of years as Gibsons  Heights.  Between 1911 and 1919 he worked at various logging camps on  Vancouver Island and on the lower mainland.

During 1961 there were 7,081 fires in British Columbia with property loss amounting to $13,596,458 and 79 people, many of them children, died in these fires. A sorry tale of needless fire waste is told  by these figures. The national fire loss in property damage amounted to $127 millions and 555 persons lost their lives in 1961. The total  loss in the last decade dwarfs that of any other period.  A majority of fires can be averted by simple care. How simple?  By care in smoking. By intelligent use of heating and electricity. By  cleaning out trash. By keeping matches away from young hands. Incidentally, Dad, did you know that the law holds you responsible  for damage or injury caused by your youngsters' firecrackers?  Think about fire wherever you are and don't give fire a chance  to start. Fire Prevention Week starting Oct. 5 is a good week in which  to clean up premises and prepare for winter months. See your fire  chiefs at Sechelt, Gibsons, Pender Harbour and Port Mellon for advice. "������_'*.���'".���   '���-    ,  "���'^;YV"'*^?>;'*''*,V,T,:*,,': ^^'^V*^.**.^ v*1-  Thousands of words  '���' I'^.t** t-y"*''''* ^ "r*V?.* '--^Vi1- y.;> r-  Many thousand words have been uttered and written concerning  the European Common Market and Great Britain's move towards  entering that organization. Commonwealth prime ministers have expressed their views, generally opposed to Britain's entry.  Commonwealth prime ministers have stressed the economic factor  as a reason for Britain remaining outside ECM. Such being the case  the London Sunday Times asks is tariff preference a vital bond in  the structure of the Commonwealth? Without it will the association  fall apart? Those who claim that this is so may possibly be right,  but if so the implication is that the Commonwealth is a less important and splendid construction than its champions believe it to be.  If it hangs on commercial benefits, which are fluctuating and can be  compensated in other ways, then the mutual connection' of non-for-  eignness, and working together in confidence for the general good, is  only top dressing of no durable account.  Continuing the Sunday Times says Canada and Australia may  look askance unless they get much better conditions foi; their food  exports than now seems possible; but they are already selling major  exports like wheat, wool and metal on world rather than British markets, and if they are being prematurely pushed into the cold water  of economic independence they know they must take that plunge  sometime if they are to enter that great economic future that beckons to them.  Concluding the Sunday Times adds: "The Commonwealth is a  noble ideal and a great influence for peace and friendship among nations widely different in race, history and geographical interest. It  tain would indeed face a desperate decision. But we believe that con-  the choice were really between the Commonwealth and Europe, Bri-  flict to be illusory."  A community service  The Coast News, like every other weekly newspaper, is a business  organization providing a public service for a profit. This is an accepted definition of a weekly.  In the 19th century the publication of weekly newspapers was th2  happy hunting grounds of unsuccessful politicians, long-haired artists  and earnest souls striving for the uplift of mankind. The editorial department was usually entrusted to tramp printers. These latter were  marvellous craftsmen, when they were sober.  The infant mortality rate amongst weekly newspapers was tremendous.  In modern times the publishing of a weekly has become a business, many with a highly developed sense of public service. Weeklies  are how run on a business-like basis.  A paper must make a profit or it must be subsidized. And no subsidized newspaper is free. The only way to have a free press is to  have independent journals which have to look neither to state nor to  political party for financial assistance. Therefore,"to be ind��^hdeint,  a paper must be a business organization making a profit.jp  The weekly is "dedicated to public service, in ��particulffir^service  to the community it serves. In every community in Canada, all worthwhile community efforts receive publicity and editorial support. A  weekly editor is usually automatically appointed as a publicity committee member for every campaign, be it Victory bonds, Red Cross,  salvage or community chest.  Therefore a weekly newspaper is a business organization providing a public service for a profit.  The above is the first of a series of editorials on weekly newspapers. They originated in the Surrey Leader.  (By ERIC THOMSON)  I met him some years ago,  where Lissiland is now, after  Labor Day. He was a large,  handsome black cat. with white  vest and paws, and he was in  great distress.  He told me that he had been  abandoned by summer campers  and was looking for a home. I  had to tell him that we were already owned  by a   cat,   but to  stick around, and I'd see what  ,   I could do. During the next week  I saw him several times at. the  store, where he had made temporary    welfare    arrangements.  The next time I called at the big  Hopkins house on the hill, Mrs.  Hopkins told me that a fine cat  had   come   to stay  with them,  and, into the sitting-room stalked my friend, with all the dignity  of a Victorian butler. I congratulated both of them.Ji  *     *     *  He   had   attached himself for  rations and billeting, and, as for  discipline,  he   had no   difficulty  in   training   his new owners to  understand his  simple needs,  a  bed in the basement, a cat- kennel at the back door; into which  he could retire on return from  his   midnight    forays,   and  five >���  meals a day, including liver once  a week.  For many years thereafter he  lived the life of Riley, punctuated by a visit to the vet, which  left him more time for hunting.  He became a mighty hunter, and  cleared the Hopkins property  and waterfront of rodents, and I  regret to repprt, thinned out the  birds. He shared his trophies  with his mistress on a fifty-fifty  basis, that is to sav, he ate his  half of his kill and left the other  half for her on the front doorstep.  His stately and sleek appear- ,  ance and his prowess as a ratcatcher earned him the name of  Dandy in his home circle, but  beyond the pale he had several  other names, none of them complimentary.  Before he had become acquainted with his hunting domain, he occasionally got lost  One morning, I found him at  BaTs over half a mile from  home, and he recognized me and  told me that he was bushed. I  told him that I was going to  Granthams, but. would be back  in half an hour, aiid if he would  wait for me, .I'd take him home.  When I got, back, he was sitting  where T^had left him, and he  made no objection to riding on  my shoulder, and oJFf we set. By  the time we approached his  home he had draped himself  around my neck, and felt like a '  sack of cement. '���'���'"���  *     *     *  When he recognized the back!  of the Hopkins house, he took a  flying leap  from   my  shoulder,'  high-tailed it through  the fence1  and down the lawn to the back;  door, followed by cat-yells given  by myself. The cat, the yells and  Katie Hopkins  seemed to  meet  at the back door, and I listened  stride of a regimental sergeant-  major.   ':  He never came right up to me,  but stopped 10 or 12 feet away,  and I had to go to him. Coming  the other way, homeward bound,  he was one thing or the other.  Sometimes he was.the essence'  of geniality, from which it was  an easy guess that he had his  Voracious mouse  For. many years when foresters  planted tree seeds ori logged over  land few seeds would germinate  and grow. The foresters wondered why. After close study they  found that a single white-footed  mouse can eat up to 200 seeds in  one night. At this rate many  years and,much seed would be  lost before a forest could become well established. To protect  the seed and change the eating  habits of hungry rodents, a silver-  grey mouse repellant coating is  placed on the seed before helicopter or nursery seeding. For-  sters-are alert for signs of animal damage and. work closely  with game departments and  sportsmen's groups to help maintain animal populations in balance with food supplies.  RESONANT WOOD  Tlie use of wood in church  building' is backed by tradition  modem accoustical research:  The president of Northwest  Christian College had this to say  after hearing the same choral  group, .under the direction of the  saine conductor, in a series of  concerts ;��in : various churches:  "Duringcthe past several years;  the Chapel Choir of Northwest  Christizf College has appeared  in about one hundred churches  in the northwest. Without exception, those churches which used  wood mainly for interior finishing proved to provide the best  resonance along with other accoustical qualities that are of  primary importance in a church  building."  kill inside him, yand at other  in to the endearments poured on  the returning* prodigal. Shortly  after this, Mrs? Hopkins told me  of her hero's return and how he  had called his "come-hither" to  her. I told her to her shocked  amusement that the hands had  been the hands of Esau, but the  voice had been the voice of  Jacob, for I had been the vocalist.  One of his hunting tracks was  the path along the Hopkins waterfront, and it was there where  we often met and communed.  Sometimes, when he was outward bound, I would see him  coming and call' to him. He,  would then break into a trot for5  a few yards,; until he remembered who and what he was, when  he stiffened into the dignified  times he was all snarls and tail-  switching, having, missed his  kill, or, worse still, was being  chivvied home by..-;the Hopkins  crows.  I missed him for a long time  this summer, and his mistress  told me that the presence of  numerous small children and  : dogs in and around his home had  driven him to spend hiis days in  cool seclusion in the basement,  (I think that theyecclesiastical  term is "in retreat"), .arid hey  ventured out only in the quiet  of the night.  With the passing of another  Labor Day and the departure of  the children and dogs, he resumed his wanderings far and wide,  and that was his undoing. Recently, he was sitting in the dark  on the edge of the North Road,  where .it enters the Port Mellon  Road, when a car; instead of going straight on up the hill, turned into the North Road and killed him instantly.  His death came as a great  blow to his master and mistress,  of whose home life he had become .part and parcel, and I,  who shared his confidence, and  I think, his friendship, certainly  miss him too.

Governments are  presumably keenly aware of this  advice; they follow it studiously.  They also seem to have gone on  to read in The Prince? "You can  be a lavish giver, as were Cyrus,  Caesar and Alexander, because  to spend what belongs to others  does not lessen your reputation,  but adds to it."  A difficulty in democracies is  that those who are elected come  to office through a popularity  contest where success depends  to an extent on qualities other  than learning and wisdom. In  some cases, candidates for high  office have been defeated when  the news has leaked out that  they knew a lot. In these circumstances it would not be surprising, if victorious politicians were  found to be more interested in  a good many other activities  than in reading a book. There is  evidence that modern governments have not read Machiavelli  carefully. They have dipped into  him here or there, but they lack  the full set of directions on how  to keep a people in line so that  the government's position will be  maintained and strengthened.  It may.be that there is no copy  of The, Prince? in' the Parliamentary Library. In that case it  could be a public benefit to provide politicians with a quick  cramming course from the all-  time master of statecraft lore.  It is easy to see why Machia-  velli's direction, "be lavish only  with other people's money,"  could ' have   made  governments  Water lush  Next time you sip a cup of tea,  put an icepack on your aching  head or take a bath; you might  stop to consider what a remarkable: substance you're using ���  common ordinary water. What is  so remarkable about water? Well,  for one thing, it can make people  drunk. In England? doctors describe nine cases of people who  get inebriated when they drink  too much water ��� and without  whiskey in it. The victims have  dizzy spells, speak with difficulty  and suffer from giddiness. They  also have a compulsion to drink  water. One consumed 18 quarts  a day. At the other extreme castaways on rafts have been known  to go 15 days without water.  feel they might spend freely.  Governments have ho money .of  their own. It logically follows  that any expenditures must be  made with other people's money.  Reading more deeply,' however,  it would be found that the wily  Italian meant; his prince to be  lavish only with money from outside the country, treasure taken  by war? for instance. Cyrus,  Caesar and Alexander were able  to throw the stuff around because they seized it from other  . countries.  '  In dealing with his own taxpayers, Machiavelli's student is  warned to go easy. "Nothing  uses itself up so fast as liberality; as you practise it, you lose  the power to practise it and  . grow.; either poor . and despised  or, to escape poverty, grasping  and hated. Yet the most important danger a wise prince guards  himself against is being despised  and hated, and liberality brings  you both of them. So it is wiser  to accept the name of niggard,  which produces reproach without hatred, than, in trying for  the name of free-spender, to* incur the name of extortioner."  *     *     *  From this it will? be seen that  the expenditure of funds by a  government is a hazardous affair. The history of the past decades might be quite different  had. this been known by politicians in office. Even while busy  in popularity contests it has been  easy for them to catch up from  The Prince such phrases as  "nothing can hurt you except  spending -your own money."  More application to finding out  how to govern wisely would have  shown that Machiavelli says  further, "A prince of that sort  uses up, in lavish actions all his  resources and is forced .in the  end, if he wishes to keep up the  name of a liberal man, to burden  his people excessively and to be  a tax-shark and to do everything;  he can to get money. This makes  him hateful to his subjects and  not much esteemed by anybody,  as one who is growing poor."  ,. Machiavelli thought highly of  Louis XH, the then king of  France (this was in the early  fifteen hundreds), whom he cited  as having accomplished a great  deal "without laying an excessive tax on his people." Louis  was publicly ridiculed for his  economy, but*he reduced taxes.  In The Prince, France is listed  as the country, "best organized  and governed in our time."  ��� From the Printed Word  How did the French feudal  system work in Canada?     ~"~^  It was not entirely a feudal  system but had many -points of  resemblance. New France was  organized into seigneuries in  1598,- Encyclopedia Canadiana  states. A seigneur was a sort of  aristocratic squire, owning large  farming estates. He held the  land at the direct will of the  French Crown. He was obliged,  in return, to provide military  services and to make certain  payments. The settlers, in turn,  held their farms at the discretion of their seigneur arid they  had to- make him annual payments in/money, produce or  labor. After the British conquest,  the seigneurial system gradually gaye way to the English system of freemen buying and working their own farms. In 1854 the  seigneurial system was discontinued by law. ��I3V.U��V  Which Red Indians had princes,  nobles,   commoners and slaves?  ,h^e ,H���-da' TIingit and Tsim-  lt J^fUS, 0f ?ritish CoIu��i-  .��� and Alaska.

Which French Canadian became  aide de camp to Queen Victoria?  Y_ Sir ?Etienne Tache, a 1 great  French Canadian statesman of  the last century. As a youngster,  Tache fought for the British in  the War of 1812. He became a  country doctor, therf entered  politics. Rising through r successive appointmerits; Tache was  elected Speaker of the Legislative Council in 1856. In the same  year he became joint premier  of United Canada, as the colony  was then known. Knighted in  185.8, Tache was made an honorary colonel in the British Army  and aide-de-camp to Queen Victoria. Toward the end of his life,  af*r?r twice being recalled from  retirement to serve Canada.  Tache had the honor of presiding at the Quebec Conference.  He is regarded as one or the  most inspiring fathers of Confederation, famed for his fairness of spirit, though he died before Confederation became a  reality.  After whom is Peterborough,  Ontario, named?  Peter Robinson? colonizer. Born  m 1785 in New Brunswick; he  moved to Upper Canada with his  family. During the War of 1812  he commanded a rifle company  at the capture of Detroit and  distinguished himself in the defence of Michilimackinac. Later,  a successful politician, Robinson  settled a large number of Irish  immigrants in the vicinity of  Peterborough and the city still  honors him in its name.  Border areas, or in fact any  area accessible to tourists, and  that means almost anywhere in  Canada including the Klondike  should think twice before allowing store-closing bylaws to make  their communities unattractive  to the shopper. Back in May the  Prince George Citizen ran a  colorful editorial in a plea for  an end to Wednesday afternoon  store closing. "Hick Town Habit"  was the caption and a sentence  worth quotation was: "For nothing cheeses off a tourist more  completely than to arrive in a  city such as Prince-George -���a  so-called major city ��� and find  the stores all closed. -��� From  The Letter Review.

Certified strawberry plants arc  continuing to  gain .a reputation  for high yields of excellent quality berries.

Today with cerii- :  fied plants yields will run as high  as eight and nine tons.  High'yields are made possible  because of the increased vigor  * of the plants. The vigor results  from the freedom J from virus,  the resistance to root rot organisms and. the selection of high  yielding 'mother plants for the  program, i *   .

A. C. Bennett and eight cabinet ministers  recently by 16 'directors vdf'the  B.C.* Chamber of Commerce. ���  Led by Ralph D. Baker of Vancouver, president of the provincial chamber, the delegation discussed some 34 matters which  come under provincial government jurisdiction.  The' delegation made it clear  that chamber members throughout the province were not happy with the methods used by the  government in taking over the  B.C.YElectric, and;yasked for  safeguards' ? to prevent this recurrence.  Taxation received its share of  attention as the group pointed to  an increasing burden upon municipalities." They felt services provided by municipalities should  be directly related to property  ��� which is a munici?)alityrs only  source of taxes ���wh:le the provincial government should shoulder a greater proportion of services which benefit everyone.  They called for the provincial  government to eliminate financial policies which they felt tended to increase ��� basic costs of  production and discourage capital investment, particularly in  forest industries.  A policy statement advocated  elimination of minimum stumpage in the forest industry, and  suggested the assessment bo  based on the actual appraised  value of each species of tree in  a given area.  The delegation called for more  efficient use of agricultural land  in the province, and as a step in  this direction suggested establishment of an experimental station in Fort St. John to aid in  the growth of agriculture in the  northern areas of B.C.  Tourism ��� B.C.'s,fastest-growing industry ��� with a 500% increase in the past ten years, was  stressed in terms of an extension  of campsites, improvement of  roads,; establishment, Qf new picy  nic and boat-launching-'facilities?**  and introduction of more flexible  regulations governing the sale of  liquor.  Pointing out that a Targe part  of the Alaska highway is in B.C.,  and that it could; be made a  major tourist attraction, the  delegation asked \ that the provincial government enter into  talks with the federal and U.S.  governments to discuss ways of  having the highway paved.  Tourism was also suggested as  a possible ., strong industry, for  exploitation in areas of slowed  economic activity. The group  asked that where power developments result in economic loss to  areas through reduced forest  land acreage or other complications, returns in terms of downstream benefits be partly used  to develop sound industries to  take the place of losses.  The delegation also touched on  educp.^on ��� advocating further  dmple-nentation of the Chant  Royrl Commission findings;  labor-recommending some alterations in legislation; and enactment of legislation to ensure the  inspection of food products, especially meat.

WILSON CREEK For parents  "Dear the people coming  home, Dear glad faces long  away, '   ."  Dear the merry cries, and dear  All the glad and happy play,  Dear the thanking too, we give  For all this, Thanksgiving Day."  An American poet, H. P. Spof-  ford wrote these descriptive lines  of Thanksgiving Day:  Thanksgiving Day is held in  Canada, around the middle of  October and in United States  late in November. It is an American festival, dating back to Governor Bradford and the Pilgrim  Fathers' expression of gratitude  for their harvest of 1621. A reaction to the excess in the observance of Christmas in England at that time had caused the  Puritans to put a ban on the  keeping of Christ's birthday. In  a sense Thanksgiving was their  substitute for this other celebration.  *     *     *  At the first harvest festival  there was feasting and fellowship with their Indian visitors,  target practice and other recreation. Edward Winslow, writing  to a friend in England, described  the preparation for this Thanksgiving. He mentioned particularly the men who went out hunting  at the orier of the governor for  fowl, "So that we might after a  more special manner rejoice together, after we had gathered  the fruit of our labors. For three  days we entertained and feasted."  . Thus wild fowl was the - forerunner of the Thanksgiving turkey of today. Venison, vegetable,  fruits and pumpkin pie were also  part of this first harvest feast.  Early in the eighteenth century,  one year, Thanksgiving had to  be postponed a week because the  necessary supply of molasses  had not arrived to make the  pumpkin pies!  *     *     *  This story, of the origin of  Thanksgiving is of interest to  boys and girls. Wise are the parents who "make a lot of" these  special days in the calendar of  the year. They give their children happy memories they will  cherish all their lives.  Food provides not only nourishment but pleasure for young  and old, especially on Festival  Days. Mothers should share the  fun (and the work) ���of the preparation of the good things for  Thanksgiving dinner with the  girls (and the boys too) in the *  family.

If  she has had some experience, let  her have the satisfaction of making the-pumpkin pie all herself  ���- and be lavish with your praise  of her "production!"  Sometimes parents complain  thjat thankfulness, like sympathy,  is not easy to teach to children.  There is some truth in this because youngsters often take their  blessings for granted and they  find it difficult to put themselves  in another's place. But so do  many adults!  * * *  E. V. Lucas tells of an interesting experiment in an English  school aimed at training scholars  in these two virtues. In the  course of a term, each child has  a blind day, a lame day, a deaf  day and one when he cannot  speak. The night before the  blind day his eyes are bandaged  He awakens blind. He needs help .  and other children lead' him  about. By this method a child  imagines vividly what it is like  to be really without vision, and  his chums receive practice in  thinking of the need for guidance  of another.  After an experience like this  surely a child would not use his  gift of sight without a feeling of  thankfulness. Sometimes a child  exclaims. when he sees different  colors or combinations of colors!  Just watch a young artist at  work with paints or crayons! Let  us encourage our children to be  grateful for all five senses!  c  ...   ;   *         THE EXCHANGE RATE OF THE CANADIAN DOLLAR IN TERMS OF U.S. FUNDS        *  IIS  *  *���;  MONTHLY AVERAGE OF BUSINESS DAYS  V>'  i  105  ,  r*  i  105  V  ftf  \  1  -/*  H  /  100  .  :,  ".  s  1  :  "  �����.*%*��  V6*"-  ���W**"  "i.

And, the B of M review concludes, "the maintenance over extended periods of time of a stable  par value for the currency can  certainly contribute to this end."  Stability returning to Canadian dollar bank reports  TWO TV SETS  In the 10 years since CBC television began in Canada, the number of homes with two or more  television sets has grown to more  than 200,000.  Following the success of Canada's emergency action to support the dollar, the way is now  open for longer-term measures?  according to the Bank of Montreal's^ Business Review for September, just issued.  Tracing the history of Canada's  foreign exchange picture since  1926, the review says establishment of a par value of 92.5 U.S.  cents was a return, after some 12  years, to a system similar to that  of other major trading nations  who are members of the International Monetary Fund;  Against a background of improved foreign exchange reserves  and a Canadian dollar now well  above parity, the B of M says,  "it is evident that the emergen-  cp program ... has been successful in restoring stability and con-  fidence in the Canadian exchange  market.  , "The way is therefore clear to  undertake longer-term measures  designed to overcome,the underlying balance-of-payments difficulties which became apparent  when the Canadian dollar was  overvalued in relation to   other  currencies."  The bank says (that linked as  Canada's.-_ economy is to that of  an overwhelming large neighbor  ��� "subject to ebbs and flows of  capital in great volume" ��� the  nation always faces -major,.diffi-  'culties in choosing ah^ appropriate exchange regime and rate.  However, the B of M points  out that other countries have operated successfully under a fixed  system for many years with only  occasional changes in par value.

Chevrolet tackled this route with a Carryall, a %-ton pickup with new 230 cu.-in. 6-  cylinder engine, a %-ton pickup with new  292-cu.-in?- *6-cylinder engine, a me'dium-  duty unit with refrigerated van, a medium-  duty'diesel tanker and a heavy-duty tandem.  Rocks, ruts, washboard and washout  racked the trucks from bumper to bumper.  Sand, dust and rivers tried to swallow them.  Hour after hour was spent in low gear at temperature up to 122 degrees F.  It took 17 days to go the 1,066 miles, and  not one Chevrolet truck dropped out! Each  day's run was finished on schedule!  Trucks that can take this kind of beating  can take on your toughest truck jobs. See  these tough, quality-built '63 Chevrolet trucks  with all their new improvements at your  Chevrolet dealer's. ���op��on_i <_ _*��r_ ����*.  Sometimes the caravan crept along for  hours in low gear. There was no traffic  ��� just an occasional traveller on bum)  or horseback. It's that kind of route? It  took 17 days to'go 1,066 miles!  QUALITY TRUCKS COST LESS  A General Motors Value  When you came to a river, you  got wet. This Baja river bottom was as rocky as the road.  What a test for new '63 Chevrolet suspension systems!

Few motorists in Canada carry a spare fan belt, but more  and more cases of cars stranded with broken fan belts are  turning up. A car cannot operate  without a fan belt, the Canadian  Highway Safety Council points  out. Both generator and water  pump depend on it and a broken  belt disrupts a vehicle's cooling  and electrical systems. According to the Rubber Association of  Canada, some cars come equipped with as many as five different belts* to operate a wide  range of apparatus.  Carry a spare fan belt, is the  advice of the Council and the  association to all motorists. It  can save time,, money and inconvenience.  RESEARCH NECESSARY  The report of the Royal Commission on Canada's economic  prospects suggests that the gross  value of Canada's primary forest industry will more than  double in the next quarter century. With this : development? in  view, it becomes increasingly  evident that our future prosperi- i.  ty depends in no small degree  on the strengthening of our research programs in an effort to  solve the manifold problems of  forest management and utilization. .  FOREST PRODUCTS WEEK  Appointment of Hugh J. Hod-  gins, vice-president, Crown Zel-  lerbach Canada Limited, as chairman of the 1962 National Forest  Products Week in British Columbia is announced. The week of  October 21-27 has been designated as National Forest Products-  Week in Canada and the United  States. Aims of the organization  are to publicize the importance of.  the forest industry to Canada and  to promote the use of wood products.  TO HELP HUNTERS  Near Tofino, on the west coast  of Vancouver Island, a little less  than one mile of road has been  built through dense, jungle-like  bush to give hunters access to  one of the finest waterfowl hunting areas on the coast. Prior to  this, the area was accessible  only by a risky sea route.  Built by a provincial narks  branch construction crew, in co-  '-���'leration with the game branch,  the project was begun last year  and completed this summer.

I have no use for shoes���or socks! means stop  Many car and truck drivers in  B.C. are breaking the law without realizing it. The -'offence" is  failure to stop for school buses  taking on or discharging children along the highways of the  province.  Most drivers who fail to stop  as required, do so because they  are unaware of the regulation. It  has received comparatively little  publicity, either by direct publi-  l. cation or,as a result of prosecution of offenders. .  Section 142 of the Motor Vehicle Act requires that "the driver of a vehicle, upon a highway  outside of a business or residential district," shall stop when  meeting . or overtaking a school  bus "which is receiving or discharging school children."  The section states the car or  truck driver shall stop "before  reaching the school bus and shall  not proceed until the school bus  resumes motion or until the driver of the school bus signals to  other drivers that it. is safe to  proceed."  Stripped of its legal phraseology,' the section means simply:  Don't pass a school bus which  stops on a highway to load or  unload passengers.  ;%-as^^ *.  OPERATION FACE LIFT  New trees are changing the  face of nature. These so-called  new trees are trees that flourish  vigorously after having been  transplanted from another hemisphere. ��� Some" examples are the  eucalypts. from;, Australia that  have found a home in California, Morocco, South Africa and  India; poplar that is native to  North America but is now help^  ing to restore life to tree-hungry  countries like Iran, Iraq and the  deltas, of Argentina, Uruguay and  New Zealand; Monterey pine  from a tiny sanctuary in Southern  California has become the world's,  fastest-growing timber tree in- its  new environment in Australia,  New Zealand and Chile.  10  Coast News, Oct. 4, 1962.

A yeai-  round resident of British Colum-  'bia, he haunts our mountain  streams and is equally at home  in three elements ��� air, earth  and water. It dives or walks into  swiftly running streams, disappearing and reappearing like n  witch. Its nest is usually behind  a waterfall and it washes to or  from it through the falling ve**  as indifferently as though a cataract were nothing. It is as much  at home on slippery snowy mar  gins and ice-draped rocks as on  soft summer moss.

Last year's production, 351 million pounds, left a surplus of 64  million pounds in the hands of  the Agricultural Stabilization  Board.

'  But much as they find this  food titillating to the palate the  majority of them shy away from  gathering wild forms of mushrooms.       Y     .  Why? Because they can't tell  thje edible ones from poisonous  ones��� often called .toadstools?  Where field mushrooms are  common, it's easy to find someone who can recognize them and  instruct others. But where they  are scarce, people who know  them" aren't so willing to hand  out information to would-be  competitors.  mus  SECHELT Tttfeilf RE  Fri., Sat., Mon.

A. Harrison, specialist with the  Canada* Department of Agriculture at Kentville, Nova Scotia.  Harrison notes that many new  citizens from Europe are expert  in recognizing the- different  mushrooms and are finding Canada a rich hunting ground for  these delicacies.  Most Canadians who enjoy  mushrooms know only the common field species, he adds, while  there are many other forms that  vare edible and make fine additions, to the menu.  There are a succession of  species that may be gathered  throughout the year.-" Earliest,  kinds are found during ?May and  . others appear during summer  and fall ��� although the fall is  the season of greatest abundance.  Researcher Harrison offers  this tip:  Don't depend on so-called  tests, such as peeling or blackening a silver coin or spoon.. The  Destroying Angel, most deadly  mushroom known, can be peeled  and any material containing sulphur will: blacken silver.   ?  The  word "toadstool,' Harrison.'  claims,  is used erroneously for?  ��� a   poisonous   mushroom. - Mush-  -roohis and toadstools belong? to  the y same  family.   Some   mush-  ..rooms are edible, many are not,  : while a few are deadly poisonous. ���-    -.,.''' A-.A.1 Yy.-y?  Here's what to look for in the  Destroying Angel: a rather tall  mushroom gro\ving under. or  near trees,1 white underneath  (gills), and a ring (veil) hanging on the stem. Perhaps the  most important point to look for  is a swollen (bulbous) stem base  growing but of a sheath (death  cup). This can be deeply buried  in the soil and is easily broken  off when the species is gathered.  The common edible mushroom  is rather squat, grows in open  pastures, is pink underneath but  soon turns bjack, has a, ring oiu  the stem, but the stem is not-  swollen, and'there is never any  trace of a death cup.  Harrison advises all mushroom lovers to keep this rule in ���  mind ��� mushrooms gathered in  open fields and pastures are not  deadly poisonous. Ylust'remember that/the. Destroying Angel is  associated   with   roots of trees  and may be found on lawns near  trees. And, at the same time,  don't overlook the fact that  many edible mushrooms grow  under trees and in forests.  . Coral fungi are edible, but  there is one kind that will cause  some people discomfort while  others can eat it without any reaction:  . While puff balls are good eating when pure white inside,  there is a similar group that are  dark inside and these are mildly  poisonous.  There   are   also yellow chan-  terellse growing quite commonly  ?in Canadian woods and the  edible Boletus can be gathered  ;by the hundreds in theirv season  in niany pine forests.
