 GOLDEN CUP AWARD  COFFEE  at DANNY'S  COFFEE HOUSE & MOTEL  Gibsons ��� Ph.  886-9815  Pro.v^liiQial Library,  Victoria*  B.  C.  SERVING THE  GROWING  SUNSHINE  COAST  Published in Gibsons, B.C. Volume 19, Number 5_C June'10,'. 1985.-   : 0$      -   ' " '  7c per copy  Sechelt firemen  expansion  Gordon 'Hall, representing Sechelt's Volunteer Fire Department appeared before:, Sechelt's  council Wednesday night --of last ')  week and sought moral support  from council for a planthe fire  department had to increase its  efficiency an<S obtain wider support in the7 area it services.  First he: wanted to know what  area Sechelt village planned to  consider! taking in in the coming  months. ;7His <idea was that the  fire department service the area  from the outerboundary 0f^ West  Sechelt to the Girl Guide camp  east of Sechelt village extending  inland as farasTwas necessary  wherever homes "were establish-.  ed py-pp :-y 'py:y  Total income for the fire department last year was $4,300 of  which Sechelt supplied $2,500.  more than half, yet Sechelt householders numbered considerably  less than half of the 800 households without counting commercial sites in the area the firemen  serviced.  ; During the last two or three  years about one-quarter of the  fire calls came from "Sechelt  which he implied did not come  close to Sechelt's paying more  than half of the financial outlay.  He was definite in stating that  the fire department was hot seeking more money from council but  wanted to work with them .on the  possibilities of forming a fire district. That was why he wanted to  ~ know how far Sechelt was planning to expand so that the. firemen could take care of the remaining territory under an organized plan.  Council under the7chatrmanship  of Councillor Bernel Gordon, due  to the absence of Mrs. Christine  Johnston, regular chairman, gave  the firemen 100 percent support  in their efforts to get the area organized.  Mr. Hall outlined the equipment  problem for the. fire-fighting force  and replacement of the old engine;5 more ladders and longer  ���ones, more hose, ��� two air-breathing masks, for smoke filled rooms  smoke- ejectors, gasoline . fire  equipment, first aid kits and a  portable pump. He also said the  firemen advised the changing of  the ambulance to the economy  frame truck.type which would allow the carrying of first aid equipment as'well as stretcher cases,!  along with oxygen equipment. He  said that in the recent drowning  a properly equipped truck with  trained men could have been of  some service. Radio equipment  was necessary also which would  enable them to keep in contact/  with the firehail and RCMP.  This equipment would cost from  , $20,000 to $30,000 which,could be  borrowed and repaid via taxation  through the village and fire protection area. He also visualized  , lower insurance, rates when the  . fire department reached a higher  plane of efficiency.  Sailboat  upsets; 2  y  *  What will Sechelt Centennial  project be? This was asked at  last' trek's council meeting in  Sechelt. It was explained that the  deadline for having a project rec-  ognizedTwas June 30.

Twenty-seven delegations  from the clubs of B.C. and Yukon  reviewed a successful year at the  conference in Manning Park.  Mrs. Ivy Baston, provincial  president from Powell River led  the conference. Resolutions supporting changes in estate taxes,  and establishment of a provincial  women's bureau, were passed.  National and provincial centennial projects were discussed, and  it was decided that, instead of  sponsoring a provincial B. & P.  W. project,-each club will support projects of local Centennial  committees. Plans were made  for the national conference in  Victoria in July, 1966.  National president of B & P. W.  clubs, Nazla Dane of Toronto,  gave a challenging and inspiring talk on fulfilling their potential role, and the widening horizons for women today.  Saturday's dinner honored Japan, newest member of the international federation. Table decorations made by the Nanaimo  club featured Japanese figurines,  sampans and ch'e-ry blossoms.  A party of Social" Credit officials frorii the interior were recent visitors to Gibsons on their  way to Powell River for a meeting.

Ed Fiedler, Legion representative, explained to council that L.  S. Jackson, who donated Brothers  Memorial Park some years ago  had back in 1944, through the  parks branch set aside five acres  on the south side of the highway  for a future park for Gibsons. It  was this land the Legion hoped  to obtain for a new Legion hafi  and for a senior citizen home  setup. The provincial Legion command had money on hand for senior citizen homes, he said.  Council approved the idea subject to the proposed development  taking place. Mr. Fiedler sought  council approval so he could satisfy Victoria officials he had approval of Gibsons council.    '  The department of municipal  affairs informed council it could  change the name Corporation of  Gibsons Landing to Gibsons by  seeking a change to its letters  patent and publishing in the official Gazette and in newspapers  at the same time giving the public the right to register any complaint. :.

Lettering to  denote that the building is Gibsons Municipal Hall will be ordered, also a plaque to be the  official nameplate for the new  hall.  A letter from School Trustee  Mrs. _.I. Volen criticizing Chairman Ritchey's remarks at the recent public school board meeting,  drew a motion from council, after Chairman Ritchey explained  he did not represent council. The  motion stated that no member of  council speaks individually for  council. Another letter from Mrs.  Lenora Inglis on the same matter will receive the same reply.  Councillor Fred Feeney expressed the opinion that a lot of penny ante stuff was discussed at the  public meeting.  The problem of a policy covering replacement of worn out  steps to property came up for  discussion with the feeling, being  that rspons_bility ends after council has once replaced any such  broken down entrances.  Expansion problems arising  from a water usage possibility  were given a going over again  with the snggestiO��_ being offer-,  ed that it would be op to the people outside the village to seek  entry within village boundaries.  To/keep the record straight an  omission in last week's story  on the Thursday night school  board meeting is recorded.  It concerned Mrs. John Glass-  ford's >motion for confidence in  the entire school board which  this writer failed to note that  Mrs. MiyWest had seconded.

Spot bear  Three children had a surprise  one morning last week, when, on  their way .to get the school 'bus,  . they. found7-.themselves within a  few ..feet of,.a black bear in the  vicinity of Trout Lake Road and  the Helmer driveway.  The children, Elaine Moffatt,  Mina Mackintosh and Shirley Helmer, fled to the Halfmoon Bay  school Where Mrs. Helmer the  caretaker was already at work.  After some frantic telephoning to  their parents, Gordie Mackintosh  arrived and drove them over tp  the Bay in time to catch the  school bus. Jimmy Doyle, who  also arrived promptly on the  scene, failed to find any trace of  the bear.

Future fire protection  Presentation of fire protection requirements for Sechelt and area,  based on a proposal placed before Sechelt's council meeting at its  last meeting, are direct evidence of growing pains.  The proposal Sechelt council received concerned the formation  of a fire district to help equalize the financial load between the village and the area now served by the fire department. The fire department argument dwelt on the fact the village of Sechelt was paying half of the cost for fire protection for 800 homes in the area yet  had only one quarter of that number within its boundaries.  A recent folder containing amendments to the Municipal act this  year sent out by Hon. Dan Campbell, minister of municipal affairs  should be of some help to Sechelt's fire department. Here is what  the folder states covering the subject of improvement districts which  is what the fire department is hoping to obtain:    "Improvement districts now become a part of the local government pattern, except where they deal exclusively with irrigation,  drainage, dyking or flood control. Thus, where necessary the department of municipal affairs may incorporate improvement districts to take-care of limited means in areas not included within a  municipality or more readily work them into a part of the municipal  system under provisions of section 18, 21, 21 or 26 of the Municipal  act.  "As previously outlined, under section 20 an improvement district can be changed in status to a municipality, or included within  or joined with a municipality under the provisions bf section 18 or 26.  "An; illustration of the situation where an improvement district  would be incorporated is the small community" with limited population which requires only one or two services such as garbage disposal or fire protection and does not desire or need the full range  . of municipal powers and services."  Analysis of the above from Mr. Campbell's folder might contain  the answer Sechelt firemen are seeking. The garbage disposal committee, which has been working towards an end for some years now,  could also take heart and suspect that some of its prbblems will be  solved eventually.  Space-economy problem  In case anyone has forgotten that on Wednesday, May 19, the  Vancouver newspapers published a several page advertisement on the  subject of the Electoral Boundaries Readjustment act, along with it  was a notice of sittings for the hearing of representations.  A separate paragraph read as follows: Parliament has provided  by virtue of subsection 4 of section 17 of the Electoral act that no  representation shall be. heard by the commission at its sittings-unless  notice in writing has 'been'given, stating the name and address of the  person by whom the representation is sought and indicating concisely  the nature of the representation and of the interest of such person.  Such notice in writing must be given within 23 days from the date of  publication of this notice to the secretary to the commission, at 615  Ritz Hotel, 1040 West Georgia Street, Vancouver 5, British Columbia.  The advertisement appeared in the Vancouver press on Wednesday, May 19 and the period "within 23 days from the date of publication" means that Sat., June 12 is the 23rd day. Beyond criticism by  Jack Davis MJP. and a critical comment in the Vancouver Sun by  Paul St. Pierre, little has been heard of the readjustments. There  will be a hearing of complaints for coastal areas on June 23 in the  court house in Vancouver.  Will there be any complaints? The new constituency has many  difficulties awaiting its new member of parliament, difficulties chiefly of space and varied economies.  Small boat harbors  ^ FROM THE ST. JOHN EVENING TIMES-GLOBE  -Announcement of federal plans to assist small boat harbors is  "being eagerly awaited in New Brunswick.  Two federal public works ministers, including the present one,  have stated development of pleasure boat facilities as an important  objective because of its close relationship with the lucrative tourist  trade.  A study of a multi-million-dollar program of participation in  dredging and construction of breakwaters and other works has been  going ahead for more than a year, according to British Columbia J  MP Jack Davis, Prime Minister Pearson's parliamentary assistant.  In a news despatch he says the problem will be ready to announce  soon.  New Brunswick communities that could use such assistance"  should be alert and quick off the mark when details are known.  It has been predicted that the assistance will apply to both coastal pleasure boat harbors and inland waterways, and New Brunswick  has plenty of both. And the demands on them by local and tourist  craft are growing apace.  For some years, the federal public works department has been  repairing and improving the old river boat wharves ��� or at least  selected ones ��� along the St. John River to keep them serviceable  for the ever-growing fleets of pleasure boats. Such work is welcome  and necessary, but cannot begin to meet the need.  Any number of New Brunswick communities stand to benefit  from a program of assistance for marinas and small-boat harbors,  including some that may not previously have considered their potential as ports.  Fredericton has just approved in principle an extensive long-  range plan for riverfront improvement.  Woodstock is facing development of new recreation facilities  with the coming flooding of the former Island Park site in the Mac-  taquac headpond.  The Saint John areas several marinas and small boat facilities  in both the Kennebecasis and St. John rivers are crowded and rapidly becoming inadequate.  Many coastal communities from St. Andrews to Shediac arid up  to Chaleur Bay will find any such program worth immediate study  and consideration.  There is a vast potential for development of the pleasure boating industry in New Brunswick, particularly along the St. John.  It is to be hoped that the new federal assistance program will be  announced soon. And that the fullest possible advantage will be  taken of it by communities of this province.  By  JACK DA VIS.  M.P.  Coast-Capilano Constituency  NO one likes to have their seat  pulled out frorii under them���'. ..  least x.o'f all a member of parliament. But there Have been quite  a few instances of this happening  'recently in Ottawa. Those provinces which are falling behind insofar as population, is concerned  are losing constituencies. Some  ridings are disappearing. Redistribution which, in future makes  sure that representation is based  on population, will take care of  that.  " :  It is interesting to note which  provinces are -lagging behind and  which are forging ahead. Nova  Scotia and New Brunswick, for  instance, are each losing a seat.  Quebec (please note) is also falling behind. It too will be short a  member of parliament after, redistribution takes place. Saskatchewan, because it is trailing the  pack, will lose four seats. Ontario  (up 3), Alberta (up 2), and British Columbia (up 1) are growing.  Hence they will have a larger  representation of M.P.'s in Ottawa shortly.  Of course, there are trends  within these trends. Canadians  are moving steadily westward;  They are also moving off the  farms and into the cities and  from the city centres out to the  suburbs. The result is that most  outlying areas are losing M.P.'s  so are downtown areas in big  cities like Montreal and Vancouver. 7 s  Montreal's experience is perhaps unique. Three downtown  ridings are about to be wiped out.  ! The Unseen Audience ~^p  Vancouver, meanwhile, loses one;  that is the constituency of Van-  couver-Burrard.7As a; result, Mr.  Ron Basford, MiP., will have to  look for a new. seat in one of our  fast growing suburbs where the  local population has been ;rising  at av phenomenal rate.  ���   We in Coast Capilano are also  due^for a shake up. With a voting  . population more than double the  national- average we were bound  to get more M.P.'s. The redistribution commission's new map, in  effect,   gives  us   three.  East  of  Lynn  Creek,  the   new  Seymour  area will be lumped in with Burnaby.   And,   up   the   coast  from  Horseshoe   Bay,    Squamish,   the  Sunshine Coast and Powell River  will be linked to Lillooet arid Williams Lake, to a brand new constituency   called   Coast-Chilcotin.  Three  M-P-'s  will  therefore  be  representing large slices of Coast  Capilano a year or so from now.  I hope to be one of them. If I  am fortunate enough to be nominated and re-elected, I will then  be representing West Vancouver,  North Vancouver and most of the  District of North Vancouver in a  new riding to be known as Vancouver North Shore.  When are these changes likely  to take place? The answer is  early next year. First representations from interested parties and  individuals must be heard. For  the Lower Mainland area their  briefs must be into the Vancouver Court House by 10:30 a.m. on  June 23. Then some boundaries  may be re-drawn. Next the independent provincial commissions make their reports to Ottawa.

(Psalm 8:34).  As we enjoy the beauty of the  earth and of the skies, we think  of God in terms of beauty. How  great must be His appreciation  of beauty when He has made the  world so beautiful! Shall we not  ask, "Is God especially mindful  of us, and does He really draw  nigh to us, when we have put in  ourselves and our way of life so  much that is-not beautiful?  There is an aspect of God's  character of which we do not  often think. Yet it is the key  to the understanding of most of  the divine visitations. We think  often of God's creative power  and beauty,, of His sovereignty  and justice, but how often do we  think of His gentleness?

Among Granthams news is  this: Gibsons and Granthams are  growing so rapidly that a few  road signs would be a great help.

Him through our Lord Jesus  Christ, then God in His infinite  gentleness draws nigh to us to  visit us. He will abide with us  as long as we continue to  acknowledge our need of Him.  The effect of God's gentleness  changes a person's estimate of  his or her own worth. To feel  the divine spirit brooding over  one's soul is to know oneself as  a child of God. What greater uplift could come to a human being  than that? "Thy gentleness,"  writes the psalmist, "hath made  me great?' The greatness that  attaches to high positions in human society sink into insignificance when compared with the  greatness that comes to any person whom God has claimed as  His child.���Rev. W. M. Cameron  January :20, 1966.  Parliament must then deal with  the matter. Any ten M.P.'s can  object to the proposed boundaries and a majority can uphold or  reject the report. Should it be  referred back to the commissions,^  they must take a final position in  30 days. Theirs is the last word  and their maps become law before theend of April 1966.  Will Coast-Capilano be split up  before the next election? This remains to be seen. A campaign in  the fall would still be fought  along the7 same old lines; One in  the spring, on the other hand,  would undoubtedly await the full  impact of redistribution. The  chances, of this happening are  about 50-50 at the present time.  N.   Richard  McKitbin  A   PERSONAL  INSURANCE   SERVICE  PHONE 886-2062 GIBSONS, B.C.  ROBERTS  CREEK _ )/& <$>  & -A.

The recent annual meeting in  Vancouver of Canadian Association of Hospital Auxiliaries was  attended by Mrs. J. Hope, a delegate, along with Mrs. E. Inglis  and Mrs. E. Henniker. A report  on the many merits of volunteer  work as well as the do's and  don'ts will be given ,by Mrs. Hope  As. this service is under way on  a trial basis at St. Mary's Hospital all the auxiliary ladies will  find many points to ponder and  lean, from this report.  where they were  Issued  by the Department  of  Fisheries, Pacific area  Early in the season the coho  are generally feeding in the upper Gulf, Islands area and along  the Vancouver Island shoreline  north to Hornby Island. This  year is no exception to the pattern and shows promise of being  a good year for sport fishermen  in these waters. Best v/eekend  reports came from Porlier Pass,  the Flat Tops and Five Fingers  Islands, and Nanoose and Northwest Bays. Beyond Northwest  Bay the fish are a little thin as  yet but they should be moving  up in. the coming weeks. Best  catches have been taken by trolling in the early morning and  evening hours using a flasher  along with a Tom Mack or a  small red-colored lure. Coho fishing is usually consistent in these  waters at this time of year and  should continue to be productive  for four or five weeks at least.  VANCOUVER-HOWE SOUND���  Boat checks indicate that fishing  was generally poor during the  weekend. Halkett Point and  South Bowen Island were reported to be the best spots. Halkett  Point fishermen took several  springs to 25 pounds, the Hole  in the Wall produced a few  small springs, the odd coho and  small spring were taken off Salmon Rock and Porteau; and  Ambleside waters produced a  few springs in the vicinity of  Navvy Jack.  105 boats checked on the fishing grounds in Howe Sound Sunday tallied 7 springs, 1 jack  spring and 1 coho. 96 of the  boats reported no catch.  Smelt fishing along Vancouver  beaches has been slow to date.  Catches have been ranging up to  5 pounds per net.  PENDER HARBOR ��� A  few  springs to 25 pounds were taken  at the Pender Harbor entrance  Saturday and Sunday along with  the odd coho. Dog fish plagued  fishermen in the area Sunday  afternoon. Waters off Egmont  produced good catches of coho  ^ "mghing four pounds and up.  Jervis Inlet coho, incidentally,  are the largest in the gulf during  f'e early part of the season.  Quarry Bay showed promise for  coho but choppy seas kept effort  at a minimum. Fishing at Sechelt Inlet was reported to be  very slow.o o \; ���'  A boat check on'Saturday between Egmont and Pender Harbor tallied 3 springs and 10 coho.  14 of the 20 boats checked reported no catch. Sunday's check  extending from Egmont to Secret  Cove tallied 18 coho and 5  springs. 3 of the 14 boats checked reported no catch.  We take this opportunity to remind anglers that the new regulation limiting each sport fisherman to four salmon over 12  inches in length (centre of fork  to tip of snout) went into effect  on Tuesday, June 1.

Cassells Halibut fishing rugged work back in early years  By SAM DAWE  As what I am writing about  relates to halibut fishing I will  ��� start with a brief history of halibut fishing as I kriew it as a boy  in Vancouver. I became closely  associated with it from the time  I was six years old.  7 My   father  was   a master   of  7 halibut fishing vessels. The first  y vessels   engaged   in  it   at   that  :     time were the Capilano and Coquitlam owned by Union Steamships of Vancouver and charter-  7   : ed from them by the New England  Fish   company.   They  first  operated from Stimpson's wharf  atthe foot of Abbot St.  They started with round-bottomed Columbia river boats but  these proved unsatisfactory so  they adopted the east coast dory.  They were better sea boats and  could be nested on the steamers.  Columbia type boats had to be  towed in and out.  Eventually .the New England  Fish company built their own  dock at the foot of Gore avenue  and also built in the east, the  steamer New England, especially designed' for halibut fishing  is B.C. waters. She carried 12  dories and a crew of 36 men-  and under Capt. Freeman was  one of the most successful halibut vessels, to operate out of  Vancouver. The company later  built the Kingfisher and Man-  v  :hattan.  ������'*���:���'������*��� ���'.;���*  In the spring-'of 1905 I joined  the Claxton. iShe had been built  as  a  two-masted  schooner  and  named Queen of the Pacific. She  was engaged I believe in pelagic  sealing   off   the  coast   of   Cali-  - fornia,   Vancouver   and   in   the  ���'" Behring Sea;  Some time before  1905 she had been.converted into  a steamer with mainmast taken  but and a boiler and steam engine installed. Her foremast and  foresail remained.   .  '���-.. In 1905  she was acquired by  Mr.   Peter  Wallace  who owned  Claxton Cannery on the Skeena  river and renamed the Claxton.  She was known by her crew as  the Bull of the Woods. The vessel was fitted up    for    halibut  fishing in Hecate Strait using the  Claxton  Cannery as a base.  She was commanded by Capt.  William Brown with Robert Warren as mate who proved a good  friend to me. At that time he  appeared to be middle-aged although I learned later he was  28 then. Later he was Capt.  Robert Warren of several coastal vessels. He died .quite recently. There were two engineers,  a cook and two deckhands of  which I was one. She carried six  dories, with two fishermen for  each, making a crew of 19 all  told.  .��� .. *     *     *  We left Vancouver in April and  went to Claxton to pick up ice  and herring bait. Claxton was  a small community centred  around a cannery having a post  office and church situated on the  mainland at the mouth of the  Skeena, about 10 miles, below  Port Essington, the largest settlement on the River at that  itirne, Prince Rupert and the  CNR not having come into existence.  We left Claxton for the fishing  grounds at 8 p.m. on a fine evening, proceeding via Telegraph  Passage, Ogden channel, Beaver  Pass and Browning Entrance into Hecate straits where .he fishing ground was. At daylight we  started putting the dories over  the side. The mate was in charge  with  deckhands  assisting.  A bridle with hooks were in  each, attached to the wire fall  from the steam winch and the  men in the dory each hooked  into a strap, in his end of the  dory. In the meantime the ship(  was put into position by the captain, to give the dories a lee.  At the proper time the captain  gave the word, the dory lifted  out of the nest and swung over.  the side and lowered into the  water with men and fishing gear  in it. The gear consisted of from  one to three tubs or skates. A  skate of gear consisted of a long  line with short lines, on one end  of which was a fishhook. The  short lines were fastened to the  long line at ten foot intervals.  When the skate was coiled - the  long line was on the outside and  the hooks in the middle.  The dories set out by compass  so that their return could be on  a reverse bearing, each' picking  up the other on the way in. Each  dory had a net a midships into  which fish were first put when  taken off the hook. The net was  square with a lug in each corner.  The fish were brought in by one  boat.  When the weather did not look  good the dories under captain's  orders would set only one skate  of gear but under favorable conditions up to three skates would  be set out. In the evening when  all dories were aboard the dressing tables were set up and  lights strung and fish were dressed  and  stowed in   ice  in  the  hold. Lots of birds were attracted by the lights. When the cleaning was over the deckhands  threw the guts . overside and  washed down the decks and  tables.  If the weather was bad we ran  for shelter and did the cleaning  under more favorable conditions.  The harbor we used  most  was  a  small  cove off Willis Bay on  the southeastern side of Goschen  Island..     The     larger     vessels  anchored in Willis Bay but more  often    used    Butlers    Cove    on  Stephens   Island.   At   that   time  there were few lights  and vessels using  Butlers  Cove had a  fixed light at the entrance made  from a four gallon coal oil can  with one side out and a lantern  inside.  Each  vessel before  she  left  cleaned and filled the lantern.   If   the   intervals   between  vessels  was  too  long  the light  went  out.   The little   cove   had  fresh water, a small stream from  a lake and this  was  important  to us as  our tanks were small  and the  crew  rather  large  for  a vessel of her size. Our method  of getting the water was a canvas  funnel  with a  large  mouth  tapering down to the size of a  hose.  One of the    dories    was  scrubbed out and taken  to the  stream and moored    in    water  deep enough to float her when  filled with water. The hose was  then taken far enough up-stream  to   get   sufficient   pressure  with  the other end in the dory. When  loaded   she   was   towed   to   the  ship and the water syphoned into  the tanks.  This was usually  my job. This system was used  by   old   steam   tugs   along   the  coast.  *' * *  When we were in harbor during, bad weather the fishermen  usually overhauled their gear or  baited up for the next trip out.  As they were nearly all former  sealers they all had rifles and  shotguns, and were usually  wonderful shots. We usually had  game of some sort as they rarely missed anything they shot at.  When we had a load of fish  we took our catch to Claxton  from where they were shipped  to Vancouver by regular coastal  ships. The larger ships like the  New England of the New England company and American  ships which fished in Hecate  Straits went farther afield than  we did, having more speed.  When they had their load they  drove for Vancouver or Seattle.  There was no Prince Rupert in  those days. There is a story of  Capt. Freeman of the New Eng-  lander when heading for Vancou  ver with a catch of fish in the  teeth of a southeast gale. When  entering stormy Queen' Charlotte Sound he sent word to the  men forward to come aft. as  everything , was to be battened  down and if they did not they  stayed where they were for a  dirty four hour crossing. Old  hands usually moved aft.  We continued halibut, fishing  until June when we were sent  to Skidgate on Queen Charlotte  Island to bring some of the Indian men and women to Claxton,  the men to fish and the women  to wOrk in the cannery. Skid-  gate 60 years ago was to me  a very interesting place. There  will still be a few of the communal houses with impressive  totem poles in front of them.  But what impressed me most  were the large canoes. .  *  *     *  They were long, of good beam  and hewn out of one log with  stem and stern pieces which  were carved in various designs  and artistically painted. At this  time they were pulled up with  shelters over them to protect  them from the weather. These  canoes were reported to have  gone as far south as California  and well 'north to Alaska.  We were at Skidgate several  days waiting for the people .to  get ready and for favorable  weather to cross the strait a  distance of 60 miles, with a number of Indian boats which we  were towing to Claxton. After  completing this job we returned 4  to Halibut fishing until later in  the summer.  When Mr. Wallace fitted up a  couple of seine boats, with fishermen from the Claxton as crews  and sent the Claxton with them  to Hudson Bay passage, Dundas  have a distinct memory of this  expedition owing to the fact we  camped on a beach at Dundas  Island and at night the black  flies were terrible. We lit large  fires to set up a smoke screen  but this did not help much.  We did "not get "many fish.  ,While we were on Dundas Island, one of the fishermen was  cook. His name was Jerry Cole  and his cooking and some of his  Islands, to look for salmon, I  humor did riiuch to alleviate the ���  inconvenience. of the flies.  After about three weeks we returned to Claxton to fit .out for  halibut fishing again. During the  period the preparations for seine-  ing fishing were going on I was  sent to be deck hand on a small -  steam tug, the Nora, also owned  by Mr. Wallace; The regular  deckhand was . sick. We made a  irip almost every day with a fish  scow to Ecstall river, a tributary  of the  Skeena  about ten  miles  up-stream from Claxton" and  brought back to the cannery a  scow load of lovely steelheads  from 10 to 15 pounds. They were  cleaned and boxed in ice and  shipped to Vancouver as they  did not can well. The man in  charge of the operation was a  Mr. McMillan and in my spare  time I found him interesting to  watch.  After: the trip to Dundas we  got back to halibut fishing until  October when we returned to  Vancouver and were paid off.  What happened to the Claxton  after that I do not know as the  next three years of my life was  on square-rigged ships and I did  not return to Vancouver in that  period.  In connection with halibut fishing the fishermen were paid 25  cents a fish which led to the  practice of fishermen to throw  the larger ones overboard so  ���that the dory could contain a  greater number of fish thereby  6       Coast News, June 10, 1965.  giving them a larger return. The  fish Companies then started paying by weight and at first it was  one-and-a-quarter cents a pound  gradually increasing to a greater  amount oyer the years. Even at  the one-and-a-quarter cent rate  the' fishermen did well upwards  of $300 a month which' was then  considered extremely good.

Slice  strawberries and add a heavy syrup or dry sugar in the proportion  of 1 lb. sugar to 4 lbs. of fruit. If you wish to haye strawberries  whole for garnishes, spread^ out on a cookie sheet, freeze 1 to 2  hours, then package in polyethylene bags.  rrvjain  How  often have you  recalled  j the fond memory of bread sliced  fresh from the oven, spread with ,  butter  and  the- crowning  touch  ��� home preserved strawberry  jam. Strawberry jam has long  reigned as the favorite spread  for breakfast to late evening  snack treats.  Preparing this perennial favorite was something else again.  Keeping constant watch over a  bubbling kettle of fruit and sugar  ��� making' sure it didn't boil-  over or .over-cook. Then finally  filling the jars with the 'hot'  mixture and sealing. It was a'  long, hot arid tiresome job that  had to be done on the day that 7  strawberries were at their peak-  of-the-season best, usually also  the hottest day of summer.   '  Today    preparing    strawberry  ��� jam ; requires no  cooking ��� no  pot watching ������ no moments of'  anxiety wondering if the jam will  jell. It's quick and easy! With a  home freezer, you    can y make p  strawberry jam that    is    even.;  more delicious than the cooked 7  variety 7 Just   as   frozen  straw-"  berries retain the ..fresh    tang  that   canning  loses ������  so  does  freezer strawberry   jam   retain  that "just picked" flavor of fresh  berries.  Enjoy   the  pleasure   of  serving  your  own   prize  strawberry jam more often, with none  of  the  effort   of  bygone   days.  Here's how easy, it is to do.  FREEZER STRAWBERRY JAM  3 cups of crushed strawberries  W2 cups sugar  1 pkg; pectin crystals  y% cup water'  Combine fruit and sugar, and  allow to stand for 20 to 30 minutes. Dissolve pectin in the water, bring to boiling point and  boil for 1 minute. Add to fruit  and stir until well mixed and 7.  sugar is dissolved. Pour into:  sterilized jars. Cover with a thin  film of paraffin. Leave overnight, then seal with another  layer of paraffin. Label *and  store in freezen  Peaches and other berries may  also be made into jam by using  this same recipe. Try it when  fresh fruit and berries are in  season.  Freezer jam will keep for several months in the refrigerator  or for a year in a freezer.: Because it is uncooked, it will mold  and ferment if kept at room temperature. Once a jar is opened  it should be used within a few  days (or kept in the refrigerator).  Freezer jam is of course just  one of the short cuts you can  take to better meals when you  have a food freezer.     Buy     in  quantities, freeze a year's supply  of7 fruits and vegetables at in-.'  season prices, have top-grade  meats, purchased in wholesale  cuts, take advantage of special  prices on frozen juices and prepared foods. Cook in quantity at  your convenience. When you prepare time-consuming dishes, pies,  cakes, cookies, breads, casserole  dishes, double or triple the recipe, serve- one now, freeze the  rest. There are. countless ways  to save shopping and food preparation time, serve more interesting meals with a supermarket- of foods stored in your  food freezer.

Members present felt the  two ideas could be combined into  one project. Motion to select the  park with plans to include a tennis court was accepted by the  meeting. A committee of three  was formed, Mr. Larson, Mr.  Flatley, Mrs. Benjafield. If Mrs.  Benjafield would not stand, Mrs.  Sparling would take her place.  On the question of raising the  money in the community to match  the government grant, many  ideas were put forth. Mr; Phil  Lawrence spoke on the Van-Isle  race on July 18, possibly the conj-  mittee could cater to a sea food  supper, this was discussed at  some length but no one would take  over and and convene for it.  On the honoring the old timers,  resiSents over 75, the committee  has not yet looked into this. Mrs."  Hately suggested having all the  past May Queens return to the  Harbour for the celebration and-  she offered to seek out all the  May Queens. Anyone, with any information on this subject, please  contact Mrs. Hately.

A native couple with three  small children got off the bus and  proceeded towards a waiting taxi.  The youngest child and quite a  heavy one was fast asleep in his  mother's arms. They had a" suit  case and other parcels.  When they-approached the taxi  the driver made no effort to get  out, open the doors and assist  them with their luggage. With  some effort they managed to get-  placed and off drove the car.  I do not live in Sechelt and go  there seldom but on more than  one occasion I have seen there  things that I do- not like.
