THOSE WILD BERRIES  Many of the wild berries are  attractive but .poisonous and  children should not be allowed  to eat them unless they have  been checked by an adult who  can identify the safe from the  dangerous ones. It. is safest to  forbid the smaller youngsters to  eat any wild fruits they find out  of doors.  The Royal! Canadian Legion  provincial final track' and field  meet, combined with the A.A.U.  of. Canada's B.C. age class championships was held at Richmond  on Aug. 7, 8 and 9.  This is B.C.'s largest and most  well attended track and field  meet with participants from all  over B.C., with some'events having as many as 40 entrants. In  the three^day, well run .meet,  there were upwards of 1,200 participating athletes.  Sechelt was represented by ;  four entrants-and Gibsons by six  all of whom 'did very well, and  without exception, turned in bet-  ; ter times, heights and distances  than they had made during training and practice sessions, which  represents a maximum effort,  and in view of the pressure of a  meet of this size, arid the very  able competition they were confronted with, Elphinstone Legion  Zone can be very, proud of these  participants.  It is interesting to note that, although these athletes > were not  able to bring home any medals  from this large meet, their performances were the envy of  many.  Kirsten Jorgensen, Sechelt,  placed fourth in the midget girls  long jump, just W below the  bronze medal winner; Edna Naylor, Roberts Creek, placed fourth  in the ^juvenile girls 880 yard run  and Eloise Deiorig, Sechelt, now  Gibsons, placed fourth' in the .  Midget girls shot put, just 3"  ���"short of the:bronze medal win-  ^ing^^th^^er^ha^^X -J '���---??  The high degree of performance turned in by all of the athletes was fantastic and the records that fell or were equalled  would give anyone a lift. In three  of the events; B.C. and Canadian  Age Class records fell by the  wayside and in at leas|t one event the first, second and third  place winners all broke the existing time mark.  Although :the Royal Canadian  Legion cannot take credit for all  these' performances, they have  nevertheless been due to the Le-  .T giori's nation-wide plan for youth  ' fitness and training, Junior Olympic^ Training Plan,, that has  sparked this nation-wide ever  growing interest in track and  field;  Locally, the Sechelt branch  J.O.T.P.   has   John   Little   and  .Verna Beck-as their able, coaches' and besides spring and /summer track and field training tand  practice sessions, they also have  conducted a winter training program of exercise, weight training, isometrics,- etc., which is a  must, if we are to have physical- -  ly fit young people a^ well as  .'.. top performing athletes:  This program, one of: the. i.e-  .'���gion's finest endeavours, .not .only trains the young athletes .but 1  what-is more importahtfrjt is con-,  cehtrating on the training-, of :  coaches, which is far-reaching in  its scope, for without coaches  any national program would fail.  At Guelph,, Ont., last year a  successful clinic for coaches. was  held arid this year a bigger than  ever coaches'"training session of  10 days will be held. This year  there will be in excess of 250' B  and A class coaches trained by  the finest, as well as the largest  group of world famous coaches  and demonstrators ever assembled for such an endeavour. Mrs.  Verna Beck of Selma Park and  Mr. Stewart Ferguson of Powell  River will be going to the Guelph  clinic from Elphinstone Zone.

The great majority of small  and medium sized boat owners in '  the Vancouver area generally go  .southward into the United States  waters .'or across to the southern  end of Vancouver Island for their  recreation.

It is also in line with  the official statement which .you  made in the House of Commons  in April when introducing your  departmental estimates. Consideration, you said, would be given to federal assistance with respect to the construction of marinas and related1, projects of this  kind. ��� r'P  "The federal government, in  my view, should follow the lead  given by the United States authorities in this matter. Not only  should it provide such facilities  as are necessary for ordinary  commercial operations but it  should : also be concerned with  tourism and our national balance  of payments.  "A breakwater at Sechelt, B.C.  will serve all these needs. It  could also provide employment  for some of the Indians living in  that area. The fishing industry  would benefit while search and  rescue operations would be much  improved.  "I believe that this project is  viable even if its benefits are  limited to local needs. But surely the approach of the federal  authorities must be much broader in character. It should be regional and even international in  scope. Against this background  construction of a suitable breakwater at Sechelt would appear to  be inevitable."

An increasing necessity  A well-documented brief now rests in the hands of ^ the federal  minister of public works covering the need for a breakwater ��� at Se-*  chelt. This brief, 50 pages-in''all, starts off with Jack Davis', M.P. for  Coast-Capilano explaining he is convinced a breakwater  should be  built at Sechelt. He estimates the initial cost at $250,000.  This is backed up by a letter to N. F. Wason of Sechelt's breakwater committee from James Sinclair, former member of parliament  for this constituency in which he supports the argument that Sechelt  needs a breakwater.  The brief points out there is a" wide shelter gap along this part of  the coastline. About 90 percent of ocean going traffic moving up-  coast from Vancouver passes close to Sechelt and when caught in a  sudden gale can only depend on Howe Sound,. Half moon Bay or Pender Harbour for shelter. This is serious for the smaller craft which,  now predominate in marine activity from Vancouver, the northern  U.S. seaboard and Nanaimo area. Large vessels can ride out a weather disturbance but the smaller craft cannot.  The proposal as outlined is for a breakwater to extend from the  point on the Indian Reserve at the Selma Park end. This breakwater  would extend parallel with the inner shoreline reaching towards the  former federal wharf at Sechelt. This would create a fair-sized harbour, based on the length of the breakwater.  Further the brief with Sechelt Chamber of Commerce help, outlined what would be the result commercially if the breakwater was  constructed. There would be a safe harbour for more than 50 craft  including tugs, now berthed elsewhere because of the lack of protection in Sechelt waters. The brief also explained Sechelt could benefit  from cheaper water transportation in bulk materials which could be  freighted by barge, if breakwater protection was provided.  Fishermen have supported the need for a breakwater. Some now  berth at Gibsons or Pender Harbour and would prefer a berth nearer  home. Taking a look at the tourist potentiality, the brief states: More  than 25,000 small and medium-sized pleasure craft are now located in  the greater Vancouver area. These boats can be operated safely in  the area of Howe Sound. Beyond this point their northward movements are blocked by a long and exposed coastline. A shelter for  small boats located midway along this exposed stretch at Sechelt,  woold do a great deal towards overcoming their reluctance to move  upward along the magnificent B.C. coast.  The scale on which this great tourist invasion would take place  is not generally appreciated, the brief continues. One day last year  (1963) there were more than 13,000 sport fishermen out in the Straits  of Georgia and Juan de Fuca. They were riding in boats with a total  value in excess of $100 millions.  That ends the quotation from the brief. There is plenty more one  could quote. With the compilation of an amount of excellent material  only some of the vital material is presented here.  Mr. Davis, in passing a copy of the brief to the Coast News, said  he was sending copies to a number of people in Vancouver and on  the Sunshine Coast. Some of their replies are bound to be useful, he  adds.  The brief, prepared for submission by Mr. Davis, reveals a great  deal of information about the coastal area and its use*, or lack of  same. As far as the Coast News is concerned there is little to criticize in it. It is an excellent job. What remains to be done is to convince the minister of public works that this breakwater is necessary.  People on this coastline know :t h needed and if the support "���* this  publication is of any help, it is 100 percent available as it has been  ever since talk of a break,v>i^ ��-*��\rted.  The sooner Sechelt go's this srrrakwater *'-.. sooner will that part  of the coastline become an integral part of the marine traffic line to  open un a new area particularly for pleasure craft. Tourists travel  by water as well as by land.  The Davis Ottawa Diary  By  JACK DAVIS,  M.P.  Coast-Capilano Constituency  An important piece of legislation has been set aside. ��� It is  the Redistribution bill. Though  strongly opposed by the Conservatives it cannot be long delayed. Simple justice demands  that parliament must break the  stranglehold which rural voters  have on our national affairs.  The official opposition wants  to preserve this advantage. Mr.  Diefenbaker's strength now  comes largely from the agricultural areas of Ontario and Western Canada. The Liberals on the  other hand, have elected most  of their M.P.'s from the nation's  cities and towns.  During the marathon debate  on Redistribution a lot was said  about democracy and equality  representation in Parliament.  But circumstances differ from  one part of the country to another. The word tolerance therefore crept into the discussion.  It implied that the older, slow  growth areas should continue  to have more say in our parliamentary affairs than new booming constituencies like Coast  Capilano.  The government went as far  as 20%. This tolerance I think  is excessive. But the Conservatives want 33V_%. Surely, this  higher figure is out of the question.  Why? Here is an example.  Mathematically speaking each of  Canada's 265 ridings should have  70 thousand people. With a 20%  tolerance the upper and lower  limits would be 84 thousand and  56 thousand. Raise the tolerance  to 33V_% and the range becomes  94 thousand and 47 thousand. A  big city constituency, following  Mr. Diefenbaker's reasoning,  could have twice as many vot-  ters as a backwoods riding in  Eastern Canada.  Under the government's  scheme 2 million rural voters  could still elect as many M.P.s  as 3 million city people. This is  bad enough. But the Conservatives want to give many rural  residents two votes for every  vote cast in Montreal, Toronto  or Vancouver.  This is rnore than an exercise  in arithmetic. The formula which  Ottawa adopts will affect the  composition of the house of commons for yeajrs to come. It will  determine whether your vote in  Coast Capilano is as good as  the vote of a wheat farmer on  the prairies or a logger in some  remote part of Quebec.  Sooner or later our local municipal officials and Chambers of  Commerce will, themselves, take  a stand on this subject. When  they do, and when they press begins to focus" on the-matter, the  opposition will . probably melt  away. Coast" Capilano will have  two M.P.s and B.C. wiil have an  even greater impact on the Ottawa scene.  The visit of: what are called  tall ships to New.;. York arid numerous others of the' seagoing  yacht type has caused a flutter  of interest in sail. Germany,  Norway and Demfiark have each  sent a small square-rigged sail-!  ing ship while France'represent-  ed by. two trim, little, topsail  schooners ��� and to some, of; us'  who are relics from the past  . they are ghosts of the days that  were! \     ; '-,.'' ;.":' [V.P-:.0'P  One hundred and twelve years  would seem eternity to our  young people but they have pas-\  sed like a dream to those-of us^  who have lived more than two-:  thirds of that time. It included  the whole period during which  the sailing. sniR suddenly flowered to perfection and faded ���  away. . -     ' k  The great strike of 1849 in Cali-f  fornia and the discovery of gold;  at  the  grass  roots  in  Australia"  a  few  years later. gave   the incentive     of    high profit  on the  operation of  fast  ships   of  sail.  So the model of the old  round-  bottomed     broad-beamed    ships  that ��� seaworthy as they were  ��� could seldom make more thari;  six knots an hour in the stiffest  breeze  was  abandoned in  favor  of hulls that were long and lean-  and  deep,   and  concave   instead  of   convex   from  water  line  to  keel.  As with every drastic change  the new model met the scoriiS  and criticism of the knowing;  ones, who said that hulls of that  shape would fall over on their  sides ��� go on their beamends as  a seaman would put it ��� even  before their masts were stepped.  But they didn't!  Those early pine-built ships  with their tall masts and wide-  spreading crossyards carried  8,000 square yards of heavy canvass when in seagoing trim, and  they moved over the seas as  ships had never moved before,  making records never broken by".  ships of sail in later years.        "f  An entry in the logbook of the  ship James Baines made about  1854 while in the long run from  Australia to Cape Horn ��� the  usual route of homebound sailing ships, reads: Ship going 21  knots with main sky sail set ���-0  that being the seaman's way of  indicating that his ship was  under full sail.  *      *      *  Few steamships of today, other  than crack passenger liners are  driven at that speed; it wouldn't  pay but it paid to drive the  Baines for all she was worth, as  it did her sister queen of the  seas, Lightning that made a record of 436 miles in a 24 hour  day's run under the famous  sp'ling skipper Bully Forbes  whose usual challenge to fate  and all other skippers as he left  the north for Australia.was "Hell  or Melborne in 60 days."  Many of those early ones that  clipped time from records and  were therefore known as clip-  perships were richly ornamented  by builders and owners but  Lightning showed nothing but  her own fine lines except the  work of a master sculptor of  figureheads who carved the  figure of a woman holding a  flashing thunderbolt in hand.  Both these ships were built on  the western side of the Atlantic  where every yard on both sides  of the border was turning out  clippers of the new model, but,  y;otf  Canaday^M  ^gy/ ������<���-.  Prepared by the Research Staff of  ENCYCLOPEDIA    CANADIANA  Who died at a ball game?  Lionel Conacher, one of Canada's greatest athletes, died suddenly in the course of a softball  game on Parliament Hill in Ottawa in 1954. From 1949 until the  time of his death he had represented a Toronto riding in the  House of Commons. Conacher  was born in Toronto in 1902 and  was educated there and at  Duquesne University, Pittsburgh.  In1 the early 1920's he was one  of the most valuable players on  the Toronto Argonaut's football  team and from 1926 until his retirement in 1937 he was one of  the finest defence men in professional hockey, playing for the  New York Americans, the Chicago Black Hawks and the old  Montreal Maroons.  He also distinguished himself  at lacrosse, baseball, boxing,  wrestling and track. Before becoming a member of parliament  in Ottawa he had been elected  for Bracondale (Toronto) to the  Ontario legislature and had served as Ontario athletic commissioner.  with . two other; hew ones;; they  were paid* for' by. the English  shipowner James Baines and  sailed under the British  flag.  Britain, always a bit conservative iri matters involving drastic  change, waited while the westerners    went    to    and beyond the  limit    of    endurance of lightly-  built   wooden hulls,   pine   masts  and spars,and hempen stays ���  capturing from her the profitable  trans-Atlantic  trade  in  the  process.   But only.: for  a  time,   the  plentiful  pine was  on  this  side  but Britain had the  iron and a  well-developed industry  to  work  it up and when she stepped into  the competitive ring it was with  iron, hulls, masts and lower spars  and woven wire, standing rigging  ���  all   designed   to   stand   wind  that     would   ...dismantle     more  lightly-rigged  ships.  The first one she sent out was  Ariel, lovely as.her own name  and a true cloud of sail. China  tea was then the most valuable  of cargoes and the first ship to  arrive home with it made the  most profit. Ariel went out with  the seasonal fleet in company  with the fastest ships of the day,  out-sailed them all and returned  with her cargo bringing news of  her own arrival on the China  coast! Thereafter every yard in  the British Isles built great  sailing freighters on the clipper  model and continued into the  late 1870s. Iron being more durable than wood there came a  time, in the memory of those of  us who still live when there were  only iron ships left.  *     *      *  But it was those shapely and  daring prototypes that carried  the true romance of the sea as  though by some law of. nature���  they were -the ones the lads ran  away from home to join as cabin  boys. And though, they went out  of the use they had been built  for many remained afloat into  this century.  Some faded old papers tell me  that it was in 1904 that I saw a  halfmile line of the sorry remains of those ships lying at  anchor off a port on the west  coast of South America. They  were in use as coal hulks and  the lower masts had been left  standing for, the, handling of  their last cargo arid still showed  the gallant rake ��� or slope toward the stern ��� that gives the  impression of speed and also  serves the practical use;of keeping the ship's head up as she  runs before the great rolling  seas that chase a ship along the  50th parallel of south latitude.  And here and there a battered  figurehead had survived with a  broken jibboom above that still  seemed to strain forward toward  far horizons ot the sea. Neither  the grime of their last use, the  foulness of seabirds nor long  neglect could hide the beauty of  line arid curve of their -hulls.  ...-���W6rriv out' brides"'of the, wind  they still rested nightly on the  water like things -of life. They  came off no dreary- assembly  line! Everyone, was the dream  of her designer embodied, and  as I pulled around them in the  ship's dinghy -on Sunday afternoon I mourned that J had been  too late to help sail one of .them.  But    to     see them only was a  privilege .and some of the older  seamenv ;ori -v-my own ship had  sailed them:, in their own youth  and were able to name a few.  It was those ships and all the  men who laid hand to them,  from drawing board to helm and  halyard and windlass that the  poet - Masefield had in mind  when he wrote: They marked the .  passing of a breed of men, Earth  will not know their like again.

Spring salmon catches  continue good in the Stuart Island area and are beginning to  pick up in Alberni Inlet.-Elsewhere fishing . success is' fairly  modest which; in many areas is  probably the fault of the unseasonably poor weather rather  than a general scarcity of, fish.  Vancouver - Howe Sound ���  Best fishing was in lower Howe  Sound waters in the Gower Point,  Salmon Rock and Worlecombe  Island areas and along the south  shore- of Bowen Island where  light catches of coho up to 9  pounds, and a few springs, jack-  springs and grilse were taken  on Sunday. 54 boats checked  afloat on Sunday reported a  total catch of 15 coho, 2 springs,  3 jacks and, 3 grilse. 38 of the  54 boats reported no catch.  Upper Howe Sound waters  produced a few large springs in  the 20 to 30 lb. range. This run  is now tapering off as fish enter  the Squamish River system on  their spawning migration. 15  boats checked afloat in this area  early Sunday morning reported  a total catch of 3 springs.  Pender Harbour ��� Sechelt Inlet  ���Fishing fell off sharply in the  area this week although a few  boats scored on springs averaging 20 - 25 lb. at Lees Bay and  coho averaging. 6 lb. at Cape  Cockburn. Modest catches of  coho were also reported in the  Francis Point area and in waters off the southern end of  Lasqueti Island.  Max Fletcher of Vancouver  took a trophy sized spring in  Lees Bay on Saturday morning.  His catch weighed in at 35 lb.  Best fishing time is the early  morning with most springs taken  , on mooched herring and most  coho oh trolled herring strip and  flasher.

This  was not the experience of Frank  Lyons of Redrooffs, who, returning to his family in County Armagh after an absence of 45  years, found the country as lovely as he remembered it and the  people just as friendly and hospitable. He saw changes, it is  true, but they were for the bet:  ter.  Everywhere in Northern Ireland he found prosperity ��� up  to date homes and flourishing  farms, modernized with the aid  of government subsidies. The  standard of living has improved  immensely.

Th  e  <By LES PETERSONV_  ARTICLE 30  (Copyright)  One of the earth's most widespread and most bafflirig mysteries left unsolved from primitive cultures is rock painting.  Examples are to be found;:in  every continent. Best -known Sin  Europe are those discovered : iri  the caves of Altamira, Spain.  Since their discovery by modern  peoples, uncounted thousands;.of  these pictures, executed on ceilings and walls of caves, or on  protected cliff-faces, have - come  to light. Most depict game animals being hunted or warriors  joined in battle.  Whether realistic or symbolic,  these paintings represent some  of the least-understood relics of  bygone cultures. Thousands of  paintings have been copied;  hundreds of articles have been  written on their artistry and possible origin. Only one factor remains constant . throughout ail  speculation ��� any true history  of when they were, created, of  who painted them, or what function they were meant to perform remains unknown.  Along   the    British    Columbia  coast, petroglyphs are comparatively well known. Most of these  consist of some one quite large  delineation    of    some   creature,  generally a fish, outlined by shallow     grooves     scored into flat  rock surfaces. Most figures are  rather  crude  and  inartistic,   by  standards of European art, and  lacking in meaning deeper than  whatever might have been meant  to be conveyed through their direct     pictorial     representation.....  ��� Some,   particularly   those   to be  seen in Petroglyph park, a few  miles south of Nanaimo, are apparently   quite   old;   others,   so  some   scientists   maintain,   pro-L  bably date back no farther thatf'-,-  200 years.     ;  There are today about 12 rock  paintings ��� or panels of paintings ��� some murals contain as  many   as   a  dozen  symbols -���,00  scattered throughout Jervis and'  Sechelt   Inlets.   Ail   are   red   in  color;   mercuric   sulphide,   com-  rhonly  known as  cinnabar,  and  called TUHM'-UHLTH by the Sechelt people.  There  can be little   doubt    that  these  paintings  are not of recent workmanship.  Some at least, have been known 0.  to exist since white settlers and  loggers first began to make their  way about these inlets.  Any  which were put  on  surfaces protected from weathering  by overhanging ledges are still  perfectly  clear   today;   a deep,  rich , red.   Close   inspection   reveals   the   fact that  their  substance is not that of commercial  paints.   Through,   possibly,   the  action of their mercuric' content,  these paintings  have penetrated  into the granite rock on which  they have been drawn. No particle of the paint can be flaked  off for  examination;   it can  be  removed only by chipping away  the rock itself.  Here, as elsewhere, native Indians have permitted such a veil  of mystery to shroud these  relics up to the present day that  nothing whatever of their origin  or purpose has heretofor been  revealed. Undoubtedly, even  among those who have known  their history, revelation of secrets as deeply ingrained as  these  does not come easily.  Two main difficulties confront  a searcher .after information on  a topic such as that of rock.paintings. In the first place, the questioner does -. not usually know"  what questions to ask. As with  all true research, the questioner  must know 90 percent of his subject before he can ask an intelligent question regarding the remaining 10 percent.  A seeker after information of  this sort, which can be gained  only from direct human contact,  since no written source exists,  will find that, gradually, the  sort of information he is receiving is changing. If he understands something of the classification of primitive lore, he will  realize that he is being told information which is of a more  and more secret nature.  One quite obvious reason for  the degree of secrecy which still  P.N.E.  prevails regarding Sechelt rock  paintings is the fact that they  .'were painted by their SEE-AY'-  KLUH; their medicirie men. The  entire story of no one painting  is now known, but the stories behind sortie of the symbolism of  others has survived, so that  something of the general history  of these relics can be pieced together.

The little town  of Westerham is closely associated with:^gt%&h-story. The  house where General Wolfe was  borh is preserved by the Rational Trust and named Quebec  House. A monument^ of: Wolfe  stands in the town-square. -Westerham is also the home off William Pitt, 18th century reformer  and prime minister.  We stopped at Elam and a  more picturesque village would  be hard to find. Here we visited  an old pen pal of mine who has  retired from her matron's position at Folkestone  hospital.  Her home is a 13th century  house with part of the original  architecture still intact.. heavy  beams and massive oak doors;  where one has to stoop to enter,  recalling to mind history gleaned at the crypt where heighth of  men was five foot two inches.  A visit to the old home town  of Folkestone was sort of a sen- ���  timental journey. I visited the  old home, the old school -and the  familiar old streets but not without a few shattered dreams.

At that time al myth was created when it was reported that the  Premier missed the barge when  he shot a flaming arrow to ig���  nite the pile of bonds. I want to  dispel this myth. The premier, hit.  the barge, fair and square, right  in the middle of the pile of bonds  but since they were secured: by  wire netting, the arrow bounced  off and fell flaming into the water. This event was witnessed by  the Cabinet and the Press who  were in launches close by.  Another launch, containing the.

Because of this fact, nature comes  to the rescue of the little mouse  to keep his line from becoming  extinct and to assure flesh eaters  of a ready dinner. The number  of mice produced to meet the  demand is truly phenomenal.  Mice produce youngsters every  21 days and have a brood ranging from six to eight each time.  Imagine the numbers that might  develop from one pair and. successive offspring in a single  year if nature's machinery of  checks and balances became inoperative. It has been estimated  that a single pair of meadow  mice have a potentiality of a  million or more descendents in  a 12-month period.
