Shortly after the  flags had been raised the sun  strived to pierce the gloom of  rain clouds but promptly gave  up and let.the clouds take over.  James Marshall, postmaster,  headed the ceremony at the post  office when the former Canadian  flag was lowered and the new  Maple Leaf flag was raised.  Councillor Sam Fladager ' officiated at tlie ceremony in place of  Chairman, A. E. Ritchey of Gibsons council who was unable to  attend. .  Mr. Fladager said: "On behalf  of Gibsons municipal council and  the people of the village of Gibsons it is an honor to retire the  old flag we have lived and served under for so long. I now call  on the custodian Mark Martin-  dale to retire the Red Ensign.  "At this precise time throughout the world wherever the Canadian flag is flown, the Ensign  is retired and it is now my honor to raise our own truly Canadian flag. Long may it wave with  pride and honor."  O Canada was sung and the  red-coated RCMP saluted the  new flag as it reached the top of  the mast at the post office.  Later the RCMP conducted a  ceremony to raise the new flag  on the police boat Westview.

Blatchford of  Lower Road, was missing for  about one week. It got home. in  a badly emaciated condition.  Dr. H. R. Hylton, veterinary,  treated the animal and it is now  at its home. The dog might eventually lose the paw which was  nipped in the trap. RCMP have  checked into the case but do not  know who owns the trap or where  it had been placed.  Mr. Potter.made the following  remarks:  "As the noon hour struck, first  on the rocky coasts of Newfoundland on the Atlantic, and rolled  on across the Maritimes, up the  broad St. Lawrence, the cradle  of so much of our history, over  the still snow-covered fields of  the rolling prairies, up and over  the rugged Rockies and now  finally, reached this western  shore, ceremonies like this one  have been taking place.  It is a unique ceremony, for I  , would say rarely in the world's  history has a nation, nearly 100  years old without a change in  form of government, changed  it's flag so completely. It is an  historic occasion that must be  regarded with mixed emotions.  "But I think that it is most  important that the children of  the elementary school should be  here. For it is to them that the  new flag will come to have real  meaning. Flags are much more  than pieces of brightly colored  cloth of; varying design. They become the symbols of the things  which distinguishes one nation  from another. They come to re-:  present, we hope, all the things  that are fine and good, in a nation, v    P .0 ;..'  The flag of a nation should  stand for unity, freedom and  justice and fair play and the opportunity for each citizen to use  his talents to the best of his  ability. For 'many of us these  things have been associated with  the flag that we have just flown ���  for the last time, and it will be  hard for: us f 2 to transfer immediately these things to this  new one. But .you boys and girls  will grow-:up':with the new flag  and it is up to you to develop  .in this -vast, and great nation of  ours the "qualities that will make  and keep\:,ity great and attach  them to^this; flag.  All of us;,-both young and old, ;  must strive tb give to the new  the stature .and respect that had  -;beenywbnXofte^:b^  fice for the old. Let us all re-;  member and honor the flag we  have just flown for the last time,  and let us all respect the new  until in good time it will have  earned it's place in the eyes  of the world."  * *  Legion's flag policy  Foiir reach status of Queen's Scouts  An.. event ; of unprecedented  scope occurred Saturday night  in Port Mellon Community Ball  when before 140 officials and  wives, Scouts, Cubs and parents,  four Port Mellon Scouts were elevated to the status of Queen-  Scouts. Aii event of this magnitude in Scouting has not occurred in British; Columbia previous-:  ly. This gives the Sunshine Coast  Region six Queen Scouts.  The boys awarded Queen's  Scout badges were Michael Robert Willis, James Michael Rudolph, Robert Earl Louden and  Lawerence  Michael   Whitty.  The other Queens Scout in the  area is Bernie Macleod of Wilson  Creek. David Donley, who has  left the area was the second  Queen's Scout.  Following the flag break and  grace by Rev. W. M. Cameron,  dinner was served after which  guests were introduced and the  ceremonial connected with the  elevation of Queen Scouts was  performed with the four lads  marching forward to music and  firmly gripping a poled flag at  the horizontal, swore ��� their allegiance.  C. B. Davies, resident manager of the Canadian Forest Products   pulp  mill,   and  honorary  president of Elphinstone group  Scouts, congratulated the Scouting movement of the Elphinstone  area on the progress it had made  during the year, regarding it,  because of the promotion of four  Queen Scouts, as being most outstanding. He appeciated the efforts of the group committee and  wished all associated with the  movement the best of luck for  bigger and better years to come.  Norman Burley of Sechelt, regional representative of the Vancouver - Coast region extended  congratulations to the new Queen  Scouts on behalf of the Vancouver-Coast region officials adding  that the whole region would be  Charter night installation Saturday  Charter night and installation  of officers of the Sunshine Coast  Business and Professional Women's Club will be held at Ole's  Cove at 7:30 p.m., Feb. 20.  ���Mrs. Margret Campbell, past  national president, from North  Vancouver will be chairman.  Mrs. Ivy Barton, provincial president from Powell River, will  present the charter and give an  interpretation of the symbology  of the club emblem.  Present also will be two regional directors, Mrs. Jean Baillie,  lower Mainland director, and  Miss . Ella Brett, Vancouver Island director. Guests will include club representatives from  Powell River, North Vancouver,  New Westminster, Vancouver  Kingc, Vancouver Fanoba, and  Victoria. Several local dignitar  ies are expected to be present,  including Mr. Joe Benner, Sechelt village commissioner, and  Mr. Markle Myers, president of  the Pender Harbour Chamber of  Commerce.  In  a   ceremony  conducted  by  Miss Ella Brett, the following officers will be installed: President  Mrs. Jo Benjafield; vice-president, Mrs. Phyllis McLeod; secretary, Mrs. Grace Harling and  treasurer, Mrs. Dorothy Bosch.

At this dinner there will  also be present baseball officials  from Vancouver.  Ray Sherwood, Len Maitland  and Charles White, associated  with the Vancouver Mounties; a  Baltimore Oriole scout, Neil  Armstrong, an area official in  the Babe Ruth League and A. V.

Canada's population at June 1,  1964, was estimated at 19,237,000,  of whom 6,469,100 were children  under 15 years of age and 1,-  468,400 were persons of 65 years  and over.  proud of them.

Editor: As zone commander  for the Elphinstone Peninsula  Zone of the Royal Canadian Legion, I thought it proper that  the public should be made aware  of the attitude of the Royal Canadian Legion towards the new  Canadian Flag that was first  flown as our national flag May  Day.  There can be no doubt that  the members of this organization are strong supporters of our  parliamentary form of government, and they have proved this  , by offering their all in its support. Therefore, now that our  parliament has by statute, approved a new flag to represent  our country throughout the  world, we, as loyal citizens will  support this action of our parliament.  It is well known that we, the  Royal Canadian Legion have  been very strongly in favor, of  retaining the Red Ensign as our  national flag, and we have exerted every proper effort to have  our parliament retain the Red  Ensign as our national flag, but  our efforts were of no avail.  Therefore as good citizens, we  accept the New Flag as our na  tional flag.  At our dominion convention  last year in Winnipeg, it was  decided by an overwhelming  majority, that the Red Ensign  would be the official flag of the  Royal Canadian Legion, and until this is changed, the Red Ensign still is the official flag of  the Royal Canadian Legion.  Therefore, as citizens of this  great land, we support the new  flag asthe national flag of Canada, and at the same time, the  Red Ensign is the official flag  of the Royal Canadian Legion,  and has been authorized by the  dominion convention to be flown  over all Legion buildings. Each  branch will decide for themselves whether they will fly the  New Canadian Flag with the  Red Ensign.  After all, Canada is greater  than-any one of its citizens, and  parliament is the supreme authority for our national viewpoint, and as Legionaires and  veterans, we will support our  parliament as we have done in  wartime. This does not mean  that we necessarily have to  agree with any of its actions.���  L.  A.   Schon,  Zone Commander.  Publicity to be pressed  A stepped-up publicity campaign to tell what the Sunshine  Coast Tourist association is doing was hammered out by the  association's executive at a Sunday meeting in John Toynbee's  Cozy Court motel at Sechelt.  To help in this campaign the  editor of the Coast News volunteered his services to develop  the necessary publicity to create  a better public image of the tourist association.  Some concern was shown by  members of the executive over  the future of the brochure which  Former Group Scouters pres- in the past has been published by  ent were G. T. Taylor, W.

Until definite word  has been received members are  unable to forecast their next  move in the matter of a brochure. Last year some 125,000  were printed in color.  Chairman of the meeting was  Len Larsen, president of Madeira  Park, and B. Jorgenson from the  same area, secretary. Present  were executive members from  Powell River, Sechelt, Madeira  Park and Gibsons.  The next meeting which will  be the semi-annual meeting will  be held at Powell River on Sunday, March 14 starting at 12:30  noon. An announcement was  made that the Powell River  Chamber of Commerce has made  a $500 grant to the association to  help further its work in the field  of tourism. Coast News, Feb.  18, 1965.

Wallace, general provincial chairman of the Canadian  Confederation Centennial committee has notified the Coast News  that he has called a meeting of area Centennial officials and others  in Sechelt's Legion hall on the evening of February 22.  The letter adds that Mr. Wallace feels that the   editor   of  the  Coast News could make a very useful contribution to these discus-.  sions and urges that he attend.  Naturally this will be the editor's intention. But before the meeting convenes it might be just as well to let all Centennial executives  know just where the Coast News stands in the matter of a Centennial project.  Having attended several organizational meetings of Centennial  committees and listened to the numerous arguments put forth based  on the vision of the individuals concerned, the editor is of the opinion  that it would be far better to have one area project than a lot of  little ones which would dissipate funds without there being too much  to show for the divided effort.  It must be remembered that on each project the local committee^ must^collect, or- demons trate its ability to collect, a sum of money  to be expended on the project, sufficient to complete the project  and in accordance with the grant sharing arrangements detailed by  the B.C. Centennial committee.  These sharing costs subject to grants, include the cost of the  land, contracts for work entered into with other persons and salaries  and wages paid to persons hired by the local committee in respect  of their actual employment on or for the purpose of the project.  The rental and use of any equipment used is also subject to receiving help through grants.  There are also numerous other factors in the grant setup by  which a committee can obtain cost-sharing grants. In other words  it looks as though there are remarkably few stipulations which  Would not carry the cost-sharing basis right from the start to the  finished project.  What is the cost to the population in this area? According to  the B.C. committee's prospectus it will be $1.40 per person with the  federal government providing $1 per person and the provincial government another 60 cents per person. There will also be a 40 cents,  per person grant from the provincial government which will not  have to be matched by the local population.  This area is gifted with a set of hospital auxiliaries which have  done a surprising amount/of money-raising for the new St. Mary's  hospital. What better work could .be done by them than to offer their  services to aid in the development of a project which would be associated with hospital work in the form of an institution which would  have direct bearing on the well-being of the aged population in this  area.  It is a matter worthy of considerable thought and with the information provided by the B.C. Centennial committee's prospectus  the Coast News is doing its part in placing this information before  its readers.  Thanks, just the same  If there are any organizations in this area who have written to  thank the Coast News for the publicity it has supplied them and their  letters have not appeared in print ��� faint not nor fear ��� because  the editor in his innate modesty does not feel he deservs so much  praise from so many people.  The Coast News is here to serve the public and its organizations  without fear or favor. While the editor appreciates receiving these  pats on the back, he refrains from publishing them. Aggrandizement of area organizations is more important than making the editor into some pumpkins. This allows for more space for organization news. That is what the space is for.  19 mm 1UI  FEB. 18  A provisional committee met at  the home of Mrs. Alec Grey to  discuss forming an auxiliary to  the loyal Victorian Order of  Nurses. Miss Short was the district nurse.  At the annual. congregation  meeting of St. Aidan's Anglican  church in Roberts Creek the  W.A. was given a vote of thanks  for its all round support of the  church.  FROM THE FILES  OF  THE COAST NEWS  The Coast News reports that  with production facilities  straightened out it will return to  its former weekly publication  basis.  At the annual meeting of the  Red Cross in Sechelt Mrs. William Allen was re-elected president.  Roberts Creek Credit union  elected at its annual meeting  Robert Burns, J. G. Jones, E.  Kullander, S. McKay and Mrs.  R. Mitchell as directors.  x- By SAM DAWE  About the":"middle or January,,  1913, Mr. Whitaker for financial  reasons, decided to lay the Tartar up for the winter,y I was  therefore instructed to take her  around via the Skookumchuck to  Porpoise Bay and anchor her  there. The date I don't remember but it was a fine day and  at 9 a.m. we left Sechelt p  There were about a dozen people from Sechelt going along for  the trip including my future wife  Miss  Cook, and    several     other  ladies. As we had a little time  to   kill  waiting  for  the  tide   in  the  chuck,  some  of  the  people  went ashore at a small logging  camp nearby. Their greatest interest seemed to be in a family  of pigs among which was a runt.  After they came back we started  through  the  chuck.  To my  surprise in the middle of the rapids  was old Joe Silvey in a dugout  fishing.  We arrived at Porpoise  Bay about 4 p.m. and anchored  in   the  bay.   Mr.   Whitaker  was  there, and asked me if I would  come back in May to take her  out. I answered that I did not  think I would.  So that was the  last I had to do with the Tartar.  She did  go  into  commission  in  May, and operated that summer  on  the Sechelt - Howe  Sound -  Vancouver run, after which she  was    sold    by    Mr.    Whitaker,  whether to the Hopkins or someone else I don't know but they  did own her at some later date  and I believe she was converted  back to a  tug.  By that time I  was  master  of  the tug Fearful  belonging   to   the   Fraser   Mills  engaged in towing    logs    from  Comox to Fraser Mills.  * *      *  When I was finished with the .  Tartar I was in need of a job.  About that time a new wooden  vessel called the Christella,  had been built by a Mr.  Brown-and Joe Crabtree, an engineer, to operate on the Howe  Sound run. The skipper was  Dave Scoular, whom I knew  very well, and he offered me;  the job of mate on the Christella.  So as I had nothing in sight at.;  the time I accepted the job.  There  were   only  four  in  the  crew,  the skipper     Dave,    Mr.  Brown,  Joe Crabtree     the     en- ���  gineer  and myself as  mate. As  near   as   I   can   remember   she  was about 70 feet long, powered;  with a 100 HP Wolverine engine.y  The   first   last ���, and.��� only, one , I>.,  ever wish' to see.        x  On   March  15,   1913,   we   left  Vancouver and  made our usual  thams   and   Keats   and  Gibsons,  calls at Gambier, Hopkins, Gran-  On our way back to Vancouver  at about 4 p.m.  when off Hood  Point  on  the northern    tip     of  Bowen  Island   the   engine   stopped and in spite of anything the  engineer could do it refused to  start. There was a slight northerly wind which was setting her  on to Hood Point. So we got one  of the two 12 ft. boats she carried, in the water and with Mr.  .  Brown   and  myself pulling with y  two pair of oars and the skipper  and engineer with    pike     poles  keeping   her   off  the   rocks,   we y  managed     eventually     to     get ;  around the point and into Grafton Bay or as it is  now called -  Cates Bay.  ���JU v'-_ -A*  *���!-, rl> �����_��  There were several piles there ;  for what purpose I don't know,  however thev were a godsend  to us as we were able to tie ;  jup to them. After we were tied  up Joe Crabtree started to see  what he could do with the engine. Now I know very little  about engines, and internal combustion engines were rather  rare in this neighborhood at that  time. I don't think Joe knew too  much about them either, as he  was essentially a steam engineer  As I mentioned before it was a  100 H.P. Wolverine. There was  a base on the engine which  opened aft. So Joe got the cover  off with the rest of us watching or trying to help along with  several passengers, no ladies  fortunately.  Joe got a candle, lit it and  knelt by the open base of the  engine with his face close to it  and put the candle inside the  base to try to see what didn't  make it tick.  * *     *  Then it happened, there was  a terrific explosion and a blast  of fire. It felt as if the whole  ship had blown up. When we  recovered from the shock, there  was Joe on the engine room  floor and what a mess he was,  his face, arms, hands were badly burnt.  We had nothing on board to  treat burns, so we got him up  to the cabin and smeared him in  engine oil, the only thing we had.  We then discussed what was  best to do, there were no means  of communication, that we knew  of anywhere near. We were not  sure if there was a telephone at *  Snug Cove which was about two-  and-one-half    miles    away    and  very few people living anywhere  on that part of Howe Sound, at  that time.X   .������X        x.y'-.      ..-  So we decided that^Brown and  I should take the 12 ft. boat and  start for Vancouver to gejt help,  about thirteen miles, leaving  Dave Scoular to look after Joe  and the ship.  '���'������,* '���,*    ..*'.  It was  about  6:30  p.m.  when  we   started   and   at   first   made ���  good   time,   but   as   we   got to- '  wards entrance Island    a    S.E. ;  wind came up and it started to  rain hard which slpwed us some.  Eventually we got  to  Point Atkinson   and   around   it.  By   this  time    there    was    considerable  water, in   the   boat   and   Brown  and I were both  soaked to the  hide,  so   we   pulled  into   Skunk  Cove where the     Pilot    Station  used to be but now abandoned.  There were floats there and we  pulled the   boat  up   on  one   of  them to empty the water out of  her,  after which we put her in  the water again     and    started  once more for Vancouver, luckily there was a flood tide in the  First Narrows which was a great  help. '..  . .  We arrived at Hind Slip at the  foot of Gore Ave., which was  operated by Jack and Bert Hinds  and was frequented by a number  of small individually owned and  operated tug boats, at midnight.  On the way in we had agreed  that Brown would see about getting an ambulance and I would  see about getting a tug to bring  the Christella in. When we got  ashore Brown started for home  to get out of his wet clothes. .  The first thing I did was go to  the office on the wharf. There  was no one there but the door '  was not locked so I went in and  telephoned my parents who liv^  ed on 8th Ave. West at that time.  After reporting in I told them  not to expect me for a few hours,  after which I started to look for  a tug. There were several at the  slip but all were in darkness except one, the Clara Young, a  small steam tug which was showing a light so I went on board.  The engineer was there and  he was a young French Canadian whose first name was Steve,  is all I can remember. I knew  him very well and explained to  him what had happened and  what I wanted. He knew Joe  Crabtree and was very willing  to help. But did not like the idea  of going without the consent of  Capt. Butler, who owned the tug  and was master of her. He did  not knew where to get him so  we went to the office and Steve  did soitip telenhoning but could  not find him. After some further  talking on my part Steve eventually agreed' to go with the  understanding that he would  run the engine and I would do  the rest. It took him about half-  an-hour to get up steam and  at about 2 a.m. we were ready  to leave..   Brown     showed    up.  about then.  We figured as close as we  could when we should get back  so he could have the ambulance  there. Steve and I got under  way shortly after 2 a.m. It took  us about two hours to get to the  Christella. Joe was suffering a  great deal of pain, but there  was not much we could do for  him. We hooked on to the Christella and started for town arriving at Hinds Slip about 7:30 a.m.  March 16, 1913, the ambulance  was there and we got Joe up  the slip to the wharf where the  ambulance was and away he  went to the hospital.  I got away for home about  8:30 a.m. and as my sister was  being confirmed that morning at  St. Mark's Anglican church at  the corner of 2nd Ave. and  Larch St., I had a bath and  shave and a change of clothes  and went with the family to the  confirmation. After lunch I  went to bed and stayed there  till next morning.  Joe Crabtree was in the hospital a long time. I saw him  after he came out, and he did  not look too .bad. The doctors had  done a good job on him. The  Christella was .taken to- Coal  Harbor. I jtiever saw her again  as I went away on another job  '������< soon after. I heard she had been  burnt how badly I don't know.  As far as I know she never went  back on the Howe Sound run.  So ends the story of the Christella and the commandeering, of  the Clara Young. I saw Capt.  Butler later and he was very  kind about the matter and did  not blame Steve or myself.  It is estimated: that public  spending on- education in Canada in the current year will total  tal $2,751 million, compared to  spending on national defence of  $1,554  million.

Coast-Capilano Constituency  One of the first acts of the  Pearson administration was to  set up a National economic Council. This council, headed by Dr.  John Deutsch, has now handed  down its first report. Running  to more than 200 pages, it gives  us a glimpse of what things  might be like in Canada in 1970.  Much depends, however, on the  economic policies followed by  the Canadian Government in the  intervening years.  The nation's output, we are  told, could rise by as much as  50%. Unemployment would,  however, have to be kept down  to less than 3%. Also, there  would have to be a steady shift  away from our older, less efficient industries. Greater emphasis, in other words, would  have to be placed upon improvements in productivity, on research, and upon the fullest possible use of all our resources  including that of our Canadian  manpower itself.  Hundreds of thousands ; of  young people will be looking for  work. Another 1.5 million jobs .  will have to be found between  now and 1970. In other words,  new job openings will have to  occur at twice the average postwar rate. Even more impressive  is ~ttie fact that this increase in  employment will have to take  place in' thev face of automation  and the job trimming disciplines  of greater competition- at home  and abroad.  The National Economic Council set certain targets. It also  made certain recommendations  as to how they may be attained.  It saidj for instance, that:  1. Ottawa should negotiate  with its foreign trading partners  with a view to tearing down the  protective barriers which now  face. manufactured goods;     p  2. Companies, meanwhile, must  also remove in-bred barriers to  trade. Canadian subsidiaries of  foreign controlled firms, for example, must be prepared to compete with their parent organizations in other parts of the World;  3. Governments (and in this  the Council included the provinces should avoid large budget  surpluses. This it should do even  when the economy is operating  at or near capacity, as surpluses  tend to siphon off spending  power and limit the pace of economic growth;  4. While the Council did not  say so in so many words, it implied that the line could be held  with respect to taxes. For example, it estimated that a booming economy in 1970 could produce a $2 billion surplus without  changing present tax rates. With  some streamlining, one might  therefore anticipate that increased government services could be  provided without adding to the  present tax burden which corporations and individuals now  shoulder  in  this   country.  Stress, naturally enough, was  laid on the need for more long  term planning. A consistent expansion in Canada's: money supply was called for. .Credit, under these circumstances, would  be easier and interest ra^es  would tend to decline. .'<  As might be expected, education came in for its fair share  of attention. ". Priorities leading  to a heavier, expenditure on industrial research were also mentioned. But their precise form  remains to be spelled out. Presumably, these and other details  will be dealt with in subsequent  reports of the National Economic  Council. Each of which, government, business and labor, will  look to as a rough but well considered guide in the broad area  of Canada's economic affairs.

British Columbia is growing at  a fantastic rate. The announcement of new industrial expansion  at Powell River is part of the  picture. Obviously the provincial  government expects this growth  to continue. Last year our provincial population grew by 50,-  000 people. California faces a  growth of 600,000- people a year.  The whole Pacific Northwest is  expanding economically.  The 1965-6 provincial budget at  $447 million is the largest ever  for British Columbia. However,  a growing society cannot be projected merely, by developing  larger budgets without giving detailed and thoughtful consideration to two important aspects of  any particular budget.  First where do we    get    the  money? Secondly,    where    does  this tax revenue go, for as these ,  funds are directed so we will determine   the  course  of our   society. Either we move to a materialistic black-top jungle or toward a society wherein the keynote will be human development.  Increased   public  spending   lithe  fields   of   health,   education  and recreation will, insure better  health  for  all,   and will insure  proper facilities to educate our  students and train or retrain our  present work force. Expenditures  of this kind will assure us that  recreational needs, in their best  sense,  will  be  available to  fill  the  leisure  hours  that  are developing in the automatic age.  '    A study of the source of the  $447 million shows some startling   ���  facts. Of this sum we will collect  from   the ��� 5%   Sales  Tax alone  $122 million, but only $86 million  in direct tax returns from  natural resources such    as    land  sales,  timber, minerals and natural gas. The direct consumer  taxes on fuel, gasoline and liquor  raise  equally large amounts  of  revenue.  Certainly something must be  out of balance when our natural  resources produce such a small  proportion  of  our income  at a  time when the profits contained  in the annual financial reports  of the forest, mineral and pipe  line industries have hit all time  records.  The 1965-66 budget may be  large but policies adopted "' in  planning for both revenue income and expenditure are not in  balance with the possible income  and needed expenditures of this  province. -  MODERN BUILDING MOVERS  315 Levi St., New Westminster  We have used houses to move from the Vancouver area  to your property at an amazingly low cost  Phone 521-6628 or Residence 584-560S  Ask for ART YEREX  $545  Thins..

If you are one of the lucky ones  reading Mary Poppins, hurry  back to the library as soon as  you're through ��� there is a waiting list.    ,  In this age of satellites and  rockets flying to Mars equipped  with TV cameras I suppose the  younger generation takes the  aeroplane very much for granted. A little over 60 years ago few  people believed that it would be  possible for man to fly and an  editor could write in'an eastern  newspaper: "A fellow named  Wright who lives out in Ohio  says he can fly. Mr. Wright is  wrong. If the Lord had intended  human beings to fly he^, would  have grown wings on us." Even  in the '20s when aircraft had  proved themselves in the First  World War those who understood  the commercial possibilities of  flight were few and far between.  At the time the Wright brothers were constructing their  plane in America a small boy in  Kiev, Russia, was intrigued by a  book in his father's library which  reproduced Leonardo daVinci's  sketches of a flying machine. The  boy's name was Igor Sikorsky.  He was the youngest son of a  doctor who was a pioneer in psychology and menial health. Young  Igor's dream was to build a plane  which would fly and as he grew  older the exciting achievements  cf the Wrights in America, Count  Zeppelin in Germany and French  pioneers added to his determination and enthusiasm.  His first efforts to build a helicopter failed and after a successful air driven sleigh he turned to the construction of an aeroplane.  Each plane was designed  man  to lift a bigger load, and fly higher and further than its predecessor, despite the many people who  were sure it was impossible. He  was only 22 years Old when he  flew 35 miles across country and  reached a height of 1,000 feet in  a plane he had built and learned  to fly himself.  By the end of World War I Igor  Sikorsky had made a name for  himself in Russia and was senior  designer in a growing aircraft  company but the revolution put  a stop to all that. He came to  America to start all over again  from the bottom, fighting the  post-war apathy and striving to  realise his long-time dream of  an aircraft which could rise vertically, fly forwards, backwards,  sideways, and hover ��� a helicopter.  "Sky Pioneer" by Robert Bart-  lett, the story of how Igor Sikorsky used his failures as stepping  stones to success makes exciting  reading which will appeal to  most boys and some girls of 10  years upwards. For boys who  take aviation -' seriouslyv or those  with just a passing interest the  Junior Library has several more  technical books on aircraft including "Aircraft for All' which  has excellent photographs and sil  ouhettes for aircraft recognition,  and "Modern Marvels of Flight"  with interesting chapters on engines, rockets, navigation and research.  The library is open on Tuesday  and Saturday afternoon from 2  to 4 p.m. and Friday from 7 to 9  p.m. It doesn't cost anything to  join the junior, section but you  will need your parents' consent  and signature.

Centennial Youth travel plan  The Canadian Centennial Youth  Travel Program will go into full  operation this year and almost  every B.C. high school is expected to take part by 1967.  Last year 48 students from this  province travelled to Ontario  and Quebec in exchange visits in  a pilot project and 24 Quebec  students came here. This year  some 240 youngsters are expected to travel to and from B.C. in  the Know-Canada program.  Under the plan all travel costs  are met by the federal government, with the provincial participating, and the students are billeted with families in the centres which they visit.

"..   ' /';" '���:..<'  /  One of the most recent victims  of the disease in Canada is the  big brown bat (E. fuscus) say  researchers Dr. Michel Beauregard and R. C. Stewart, of the  federal Animal Disease Research Institute at Hull, Que.  Two incidents, similar, in nature but four years arid hundreds  of miles aoart, drew the attention of veterinarians to the latest threat.  The first occurred in British  Columbia in 1957 when a child  was bitten by a brown'bat. The  bat was captured afterwards  and laboratory tests showed that  it was infected with rabies virus.  The second occurred in 1961 in  Ontario and again involved a  child being bitten by a bat. Tests  showed that it was infected, thus .  confirming the presence of rabies iri bats in Eastern Canada.  The findings resulted in all  bats becoming suspect. From  August 1961, to August .1963, 72  bats from 24 Ontario counties  were tested at the Institute's rabies laboratory. Five ��� from  fairly Widely separated counties  ��� were found to be infected.  How the insect-eating brown ���'..  bat of Canada picked up the  disease is not yet fully understood, according to the researchers. Unlike other species which  congregate in caverns and simi-  lar places, it leads a rather  solitary life, preferring the seclusion of an attic. Nor is there  any apparent connection between  . rabies   in   the   larger   fauna   of  Canada   and   the  occurrence   of  the disease in bats.  A likely answer, they believe,  lies in the fact that a few, big  brown bats migrate for the winter to the southern United States,  where they may come in contact  Joe Beaver Quiz  Revised and up-dated by the  Canadian Forestry Association  of B.C., Joe Beaver's Forestry  Quiz, first published by the  C'.-F.A. in 1950, has been reissued this year in response to  demands from librarians, school  teachers, students, youth counsellors and forest industry executives.  The Quiz poses and answers  138 questions covering forestry  and related subjects. A cross-  reference index puts these at  the reader's fingertips.  As the publication points out,  recent years have,' seen great  changes in public attitudes, toward the forest and its multiple  values, all of which must be in-  tellingently developed if we are  to reap our ultimate reward  from this self-perpetuating resource.  The pages of Joe Beaver's  Quiz Book are enlivened with  drawings from the pen of Ed  Nofziger, popular American cartoonist, who has donated these  whimsical characters to the  Canadian people and the Ujiited ���  States of America as a contribution to the cause of conservation.  with other insectivorous bats  " carrying the   disease.  Rabid bats are much more  common in the United States  than in this country.  Since 1953, when the rabies  virus was found for the first  time in bats, more than 600  cases in 42 states have been discovered. The infected bats belonged to 25 of the 36 insectivorous species known to exist in the  U.S.-   ;..'/���/. "'������.;'  The occurrence of rabies in  bats can mean the spread of  the disease in Canada. Although  the infection of bats by skunks  and foxes is unlikely, the transmission of the virus to animals  by infected bats is possible ���  and even probable.  Another very real danger, posed by the bats is to man himself, and the peril.is accentuated  by the bats' tendency to settle, in  attics arid around dormer windows of homes. Moreover,' bats  can carry the infection without  showing visible symptoms of rabies;   ��� .���;;.";  Fortunately, there has been no  instance to date in Canada of a  6        Coast News, Feb. 18, 1965.  bat transmitting rabies to a human. Not so in the United States,  however, where rabid bats in  the last decade have been responsible for a few fatal cases  of human rabies.  Although bats are the latest  threat, foxes and skunks are still  the main carriers of the disease.  TRYTHENEW  XLM  READY  MIX  HIM III il,  P & W DEVELOPMENT CO.

It makes it possible  to have the fabric permanently  bonded or laminated to vinyl-  coated window shade cloth.  A popular scheme is to coror-  dinate cotton fabric wall coverings with cottons at the window;  With this -in mind; cover one  wall and window shades with  matching fabric. Have' white or  neutral, co-ordinated or shear  cotton draperies to break up the  pattern.  Besides covering the entire  window shade with fabric, there  are a number of eye-catching  ways to trim vinyl-coated window shades. One method is to  applique a design from your  draperies or other fabrics in.  your room to vinyl-coated fab-  yric window shades.  Whether you choose a floral  or scenic design, first outline  the area you are planning to  cut but with clear nail polish,  applied on the back of the fab-"-  This prevents edges from fraying. Then locate the cut-back on  the shade, preferably near the  bottom so the design won't disappear when the shade is rolled  up. Start out by putting adhesive  on the shade near the centre of  the design and work out from  the. centre with your fingers.  When the main part of the  cut-out is anchored, apply ad-  hesivje on the back of the-.cutout'"-".around-'-, the edges. Then  smooth it all down with a clean  soft cloth, yy  Another way to give unusual  treatment to a vinyl-coated fab-;-.  brie window shade is to use cotton trimmings like ball fringe,  braid, scalloped edging or tassels. You will find a wealth of  these readily . available. For a  change of decorating pace, these  can be attached to both straight-  hem and scalloped vinyl-coated  fabric window shades.  . A new development is to put  beautiful nursery decals or attractive kitchen design decals on  vinyl - coated fabric window  shades to add interest to your  nursery or kitchen. This treatment is receiving wide acceptance in all areas of Canada.'  These are just a few examples  of the new versatility in shades.  Apply your own imagination and  see how easy it is to create  your own shade of difference to  transform not only your windows  but your  entire  home.  Give your windows individuality.   Reflect  your  personality  by  , the beauty and    originality     of  your windows.  The vinyl-coated fabrics andr  window shades we spoke about  are manufactured to government;  specifications. :'  These shades are insulated.  They keep out heat in summer;  cold in winter. They make your  home more comfortable; are  room darkening, giving you  complete privacy and allowing  you to sleep any time of day or  night. They protect your furnishings from the damaging rays  of the sun; are flame resistant  and completely washable.

TR 9-5211  Some advice  on orchards  Good housekeeping is as important -in orchard management  for quality fruit production as it  is in the home for domestic well-  being.  J. H. de Ronde of the Canada  Dept. of Agriculture research  laboratory, Vineland Station,  Ontario, says, for instance, that  sanitation is basic to, pest control and should be so regarded  from planting to harvest.  To begin with, he advises buying healthy and, if possible,  certified stock. If you propagate  your own, use only healthy plant  material.  Carefully balanced pruning is  as important in new plantings as  in bearing orchards. Make clean  cuts, which heal quickly. Stubs  are an invitation to infection.  Train trees for the free air cir- ���  culation which can reduce fungus infections. Good vigor is essential, but do hot over-fertilize  ���and produce dense growth that  has to be pruned out later..  Some diseases can be control-'  led best by pruning; out infected  parts/' :X :  Fire-blight of apples and pears  calls for drastic measures. If.  fire-blight is a problem, holdover cankers on large branches  should be painted with disinfectant.  Watch for blighted twigs and  branches during summer and cut  them out and burn them when  you see them.  Black knot of plums can be  easily recognized and pruned out  in the dormant season. -.  _ For dead-arm,: the ; most dangerous . of grape diseases, spare"  the knife and you.spoil the vine.  When pruning for disease control, disinfect pruning tools, cut  five or six inches below the infected part, and burn the trimmings: If you need further information, consult your nearest  plant pathology laboratory or extension office.  In the spring, reduce the  sources of infection by cultivating your orchard early, at the  same time burying rotted fruit,  brown rot mummies, scabbed  leaves and weeds that harbor  disease   and insects.  At harvest, never pick wet  fruit or handle rotting fruit if  you can help it. Avoid bruising  and don't pack too tightly. With  some fruits, such as peaches,  packed containers should be  placed promptly in cold storage.  i Sir Winston Churchill will be  honored on a special Canadian  postage stamp to be issued late  this summer, John R. Nicholson,  postmaster general, has announced.  This will be the first time that  a Canadian stamp has been produced to honor a person who  was neither a member of the  Royal, Family nor a Canadian.  Details of design and printing  will be released later.  A tremendous increase in interest in Canadian stamps, demonstrated by an unprecedented  volume of orders received at the  Port Office's Philatelic sales office at Ottawa, has pushed the  sale of Canadian postage stamps  for philatelic purposes to a new  high during the past year.  Post office records show that  total philatelic sales for 1964  amounted to over $775,000 as  compared to $438,000 in 1963 and  the total number of orders was  up 87% over the previous year.  The basic reason for the upsurge is that postage stamps are  now being regarded more and  more as an investment and more  people are buying them in quantity with a view to re-selling them  later at a profit. The practice, it  was noted, is perfectly legal.  The demand for some stamps  has been so great that/although  single copies of most recent issues are still available, plate  blocks of. some stamps are now  completely sold out. For.example, the seven-cent regular issue  stamp released last March was  sold out of plate blocks by August. Plateb locks are the stamps  with the printing plate number  and the name of the manufacturer printed on the white paper  margin.  The Post Office has also noted  a marked increase in the number of philatelists taking advantage of the' deposit account service, a service by which philatel-.  ist's receive their requirements of  new issue stamps without; the  need of submitting an order for  each issue. In 1964, the total number of depositors increased by 25  percent.  EDGE OF THE DESERT  The virgin forest is practically  a biological desert says Dr. Ira  N. Gabrielson in his book Wildlife Conservation. It is the edge  or   cut-over   land   that   supplies,  food for wildlife.  Deer,  rabbits,  squirrels  and  ruffled grouse all  feed oh young woody plants and  it is   these   that form   the  first  new  growth   on  cut-over  lands.  The predators, such as fox and  wildcat  will   be   found   close   to  the sources of the food supply.  Before the advent of man edge  was  produced by  such  animals  as porcupine,     rabbits,     beaver  and deer, and by hurricane and  fire.  LAST. WEEKS  ANSWER  **����?  3H9J?_'  ACROSS  1.

A $50 bond, with  the'other auxiliaries participating, has also been presented to  Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Bailey of  Granthams, whose baby was the  first born in the new hospital.  On Thursday, Feb. 11, members were conducted by the director of nurses on a tour of the  upper floor; Mr. Buckley, the  administrator, took the ladies  through the lower. The Auxiliary  appreciated the valuable time  given up to them.  Later, all the auxiliaries gathered at St. Hilda's Church Hall  where Mr. Buckley addressed the  meeting. The administrator touched on many aspects relating to  the hospital, and said he considered he was fortunate in having .  a good staff. Much was explained about the inner workings of  the hospital, and he graciously  offered the board room to all the  auxiliaries for their meetings and  other activities. Aifter a question  and answer period, the afternoon  ended with refreshments.

Anyone interested in picking should call in at fhe  plant to see what type of salal is required before they  rush off to the bush.  Both of fhe plants are primarily interested in the  production of salal although a few pickers will be  trained to pick ferns and cedar boughs.  The Sechelt plant at present employs three women  as bunchers, this will be increased as production allows.  I  REID   MOSS  &  FERN  Sechelt,  B.C.  Phone 885-9313  NADA WILSON  Halfmoon Bay, B.C.  Phone  885-974G-  Family night, an annual event  sponsored by the OES, was a  joyous affair on Saturday when  Masons, Eastern Stars, De Mo-  lays and Job's Daughters, together with friends, gathered at  the  Masonic  Hall.  Mrs. J. Swan, convener, introduced the worthy matron,  Mrs. W. Rankin, who welcomed  the guests.  Using one. end of the chapter  room for a stage some hilarious  acts were presented. - The De  Molays' presentation was a very  good TV commercial which  brought much applause. The  Tidewater Players contributed to  the program with several numbers, including the Charleston  as performed in their last show,  but with a large addition, Mr.  Bill Morrison, a hefty lass in a  red dress, complete with garter,  beads, etc., a beatnik scene, a  hillbilly and-hobo act and a tender song and dance routine, in  German, by Helga Connor and  Harry Mylroie.  A group of Jobies, enjoying  their performance as much as  the audience, presented The  Highwayman. Heather Garlick  narrated the ppem and the others acted it out in a manner  which would have amazed the  author. The highwayman's horse,  Marilyn Hopkins, took a good  deal of abuse from her erratic  rider, Judy Brown. Others in the  cast were Judy Farr and Barbara Blakeman, the soldiers;  Phyllis Hauka, the landlord; and  Diane Hopkins the landlord's  daughter.  Following the show the guests  descended to the banquet room  where much delicious food was  set on tables against the north  wall leaving plenty of room to  dance.  A white sweater was raffled  and won by George Hopkins.  Prizes for dancing went to Mr.  and Mrs. A. Swanson, spot  dance; George Hopkins and  Diane, jitterbug; mother and  son, Mrs. Boyes and Robert;  The Swim, 1st, Heather Garlick  and Randy Boyes; 2nd, Carol  Mylroie and James Mendelkau.  The mystery Prince turned out  to be John Smith and his identity  was guessed by Judy Brown.  8       Coast News, Feb.  18, 1965.

WEST)  Roberts Creek Guides made an  excursion to Vancouver on Saturday. In the morning we joined  the Junior Natural History Society on a trip around the Stanley  Park zoo led by the curator Mr.  Alan Best.  Mr. Best took us into the bear  house so that we' could see the  'bears at close quarters in their  dens. The three year old polar  bears about half grown' already  stand some eight feet high. The  zoo now has several color phases  of the black bear, from a rare  white through shades of blonde  and brown to black.  We learned with surprise that  Grade sixers  enjoy  Excitement mounts as Grade 6  children at Gibsons Elementary  School prepare for their first  field trip, an expedition to Vancouver on Thursday, Feb. 18.  They will travel by chartered  bus, visiting first the B.C. Building at the PNE. Here displays,  models and photographs should  give an understanding of the geographical features of our province and its natural resources.  A guided tour of the aquarium  has been arranged to stimulate  interest .in the many and varied  creatures which inhabit our  coastal waters. Most exciting  perhaps will be a visit to the Vancouver Art Gallery to see the  3,000 year old treasures of King  Tutankhamun. So many school  children are visiting this exhibition as it concerns a period of  history covered in Grade 7 social  studies that special tours have  been arranged for them. Gibsons  has been fortunate to secure one  of these instructors.  'Grade 7's from Sechelt Elementary school are planning a  similar trip next week.  Salal now  an industry  A growing business which will  leave $60,000 or more in the  hands of workers in the Gibsons  to Earl Cove area uses local  grown shrubbery as its product.  For the last 12 years Mrs.  Nada Wilson of Secret Cove has  shipped salal from the area's  lush forests to the Reid Fern anl  Moss for distribution to the farthest corners of Canada. Mrs.  Wilson reports the salal growing  in the area to be of unmatched  quality and during the last three  years the demand for it has increased fourfold.  As a result Reids have found  it necessary to open a second  handling plant at Sechelt, to supply evergreens to florists across  the country. Reids have been in  the business for 30 years.  Bob Sturgeon who runs one of  the Reid six plants is assisting  in the managing of the Sechelt  plant, training John Hayes to assume full management by March  1. Mr. Sturgeon has had 15 years  experience in salal picking and  is anxious to train as many workers as he can.       y   .. ���  E & M BOWLADROME  (By ED CONNOR)  Gibsons B: Shakers 2788 (1040)  J.

Baden Powell  week opens  Tommy Stenner and Darrell  Helina were welcomed into B  Pack Cubs during the investiture last meeting. Mrs. G. Cooper from A pack read the boys a  bible story and cookies were  ' served.  .  Gibsons A Pack's Steven Rigby received his collector's badge  and Kirk Thomas received a well-  earned book in acknowledgement  of his 14 proficiency badges.  Baden-Powell: week will be  highlighted in Gibsons by various  scouting and cub displays at local stores. A shield will be given  to the group creating the most  imaginative display.  Window, displays will be organized by-the Cubs in Kruse Drug  Stores irit the village and at Super Valu, Gibsons Electric and in  the Seaview Plaza. Prizes will  be awarded by the District Council for the best showing.  There will be a Father and Son  banquet to be held Monday, Feb.  22 in Legion Hall.  Twelve Scouts went, on an overnight camp to Keats on" Saturday. They were accompanied by  Scoutmaster John Ferrari, Bill  Laing, assistant scoutmaster and  Geoff Thatcher.  in the  small penguin  pond  are-  represented  no less than  seven,  species, from the Galapagos penguin which comes from near the-  equator to the 80 pound Emperor from Antarctica. One doesn't  generally think of snakes as being  warm,   yet  when  Mr.   Best  brought the 7-8 foot boa constrictor out of his warm cage he felt,  warm    and   comforting   to    our  wind-chilled   fingers    and   there  was no shortage of children wanting to hold him. We hope he did  not catch a chill. Mr. Best was  completely out-talked by the Gibbons who were in good voice and  amused   us    with    their    choral  "singing." This was a most interesting tour which we hope to  repeat - on  a  warmer  day.   The  wind was so strong there were  ���white caps on Lost Lagoon.  Somewhat windswept we went  next to the Art Gallery where we  admired some of the permanent  collection of pictures, a display  of the works of Emily Carr as  well as the Treasures Of Tutankhamun. The mummified body  of a .small boy seems to have  been one of the most interesting  'exhibits.-:' y:y.--.  Georgia Street was like a wind  (tunnel but singing in the queue  kept us warm and our spirits up  as we waited to 'get into Mary  Poppins. The film w^as a delight  and enjoyed by all, even those  who have been Mary Poppins'  fans for years. The film finished  at 6:16 p.m. and. we made the  6:30 p.m; bus with seven minutes to spare. It was fortunate that  the streets were almost deser-  ed as the 22 of us scooted for the  bus depot.       - ������-'pp'O ������- i.
