Last Wednesday night's meeting in the Municipal hall of  Gibsons Centennial committee  with Councillor Sam Fladager  in the chair, discussed (1) what  can be done with the Anglican  church property now known as  Kinsmen park; (2) a swimming  pool close to Gibsons Elementary school on property to be  purchased; (3) go back to the  Municipal beach swimming  pool idea (4) buy property adjacent to Kinsmen park for a  pool and (5) approach Anglican  church authorities to see if  Kinsmen Park could not be  turned over in perpetuity to a  Community association.  As regards the Kinsmen Park  property and the church authorities it was felt there would  be too many restrictions as laid  down in the deed turning over  the property for free sports use  with Anglican church authority  involved, a suggestion was made  the property be turned over to  the village completely.  As regards building a pool in  association   with   school   board  jurisdiction it was, argued that  costs   of  maintaining   the : ppol  ^nder health and.safety regula-  -tions ���;.��� when: y not >use!d >b^^e,  sotioos  would be     hi^h. 'Don  Douglas, representing the school  board, put forward the idea in  conjunction with  the  chairman  who    had    same conversation  with  Peter Wilson,   board  secretary-treasurer.     The     school  would have the use of the pool  during   school   hours   in   May,  June and September with public use of it after school hours.  Other months of the year would  be for public use. If associated  with the school it could be heated by using present school heating facilities. Then came argument  on sanitation and safety  costs over the year. Who was  going to meet those?  Dick Kennett moved the com-;  mittee revert to its idea of having a tide-water pool at the  Municipal Beach. As there was  no seconder this was dropped.  Fred Holland said the Salvation  Army pool at its Langdale camp,  cost $13,000 without extras and  ���he asked whether anyone had  really considered what the cost  of installing an Olympic type  pool would cost?  All were in favor of something being done as time was  getting short. The work has to  be started in September. The  meeting then decided to name  a committee to look into the  possibilities of purchasing the  Propp property on School road  behind the Elementary school  and to check on possibilities:'.' of  getting property bordering on  Kinsmen Park. The committee  consists of Eugene Yablonski  and Fred Holland of Gibsons  and Bernie Littlejohn of Port  Mellon. '  This satisfied the meeting and  in his closing remarks the chairman  advised the  members  of  the Centennial committee to get  into the proper-attitude and stop  opposing.     Something    definite  must be done with a week or  a week and a half,  he added  Port     Mellon     representatives  said .vthat,. if .nothing was donje.  /I^^at^itfe:^  pull out of the Gibsons Centennial     committee     and: use its  money as best it could with its  own  proposition.  Chairman Fladager was of the  opinion that as there was a  movement on foot to form a  Community association he  thought something could be  done in that direction. Halfway through the meeting Mr.  Yablonski suggested that perhaps the committee should resort to placing the matter before a public meeting to see  whait support the committee  could get.  Below is a full grown 10 month  old bull, smaller than a two to  three month old calf of normal  size. The young miss tending it  is Chris Wray, 11 year old  daughter of Len Wray, chairman of the Sunshine Coast Fall  Fair committee. This young  bull, a freak of nature, will be  an attraction at the Sunshine  Coast Fall Fair, Friday and  Saturday at Gibsons Elementary  school hall and grounds.  ar r-4 ^.^ ?n  Fair opens Friday  It might look like a scene  depicting 50 years ago but it  will actually be the Friday  evening official opening of the  Sunshine Coast Fall Fair at the  Elementary school  grounds.  This event will take place at  approximately 7 p.m! when Wes-  MRS. I. DAWSON  ley Hodgson chairman of Gibsons village council and Mrs.  Hodgson dressed as of yore will  declare the fair opened. Gibsons July 1 Queen Mrs. Daisy  Crowhurst' will also be present  as well as queens from other  areas if they are able to come.  An interesting point in this  year's judging is that there will  be aggregates for each division  as well as the Coast News gx-and  aggregate  prize.  Gerry Clarke, secretary "of'the"  fair committee and Len Wray,  president have conferred for  their last minute decisions and  now all is ready for the laying  out of the school area inside the  hall and on the grounds for the  events that will take place on  Friday and Saturday.  Other details of the big two-  day event will be found in the  full page advertisement on page  six of this issue which contains  the names of the merchants and  others who have assisted the  committee in making the annual fair one of the outstanding  events of the year.  MrsJLDawson nominated by Socreds  Mrs. Isabel Dawson, of Powell  River, was nominated Social  Credit candidate for Mackenzie  constituency for the Sept. 12  provincial election. Mrs. Dawson who ran for the seat in the  last provincial election was  nominated at a meeting Monday  evening in Gibsons Legion hall.  Following the nomination a  public meeting heard Mrs. Dawson and Hon. Ray Williston  minister of lands, forests and  water resources speak. About  50 persons attended the public  meeting which included a party  from Powell River, here for the  nomination.  In the 1963 election Mrs. Dawson was close to 400 votes behind Tony Gargrave, NDP, with  a Liberal taking some of the  votes. Judging from early reports a two-way fight is possible in this election unless a  Liberal enters the campaign.  Ron Haig, chairman of the  meeting, introduced Mrs. Dawson who spoke for about 15 minutes during which time she  made no specific promises and  announced that she would continue to work for the people  of the constituency, win or lose, '  a promise which she made in  the 1963 campaign.  Mrs. Dawson maintained there  was a need for a positive candidate in the legislature representing Mackenzie and, she  added, she believed she had  carried the support of the people  for that seat. She outlined her  campaign program which included    betterment    for senior  citizens, retarded children, hospitals, social welfare, mental  health and an ombudsman; a  positive roads program; an adequate ferry service with plans  for an upcoast service and more  development o f provincial  parks.  She favored a crash program  of extended care with small  cottage style hospitals which  could handle maternity cases  and minor operations, thus relieving pressure on acute case  hospitals. As secretary of the  Malaspina Senior Citizens hospital at Powell River she said  she was well acquainted with  the needs of senior citizens.  It was time Victoria had more  women in the legislature and  she urged women of the area to  get out and vote for her. She  also urged the men to get the  women out to vote.  Hon. Mr. Williston in his  opening remarks said it was  fortunate that this area had a  woman like Mrs. Dawson as a  crnnir'ntc. He had known the  family for years and hard work  v/n.s the mark of the family.  Fr. Williston delivered a talk  on the rising economy of the  province and said Mackenzie  constituency was one of the  richest in the province. It was  the leading producer of timber  wealth, providing most of the  material for mills situated on  the  Strait of Georgia.  He ouMined possible power  expansion from the interior  down to tide-water and across  to Vancouver Island and he ad  ded that more    power    would  mean more    secondary    industries.  Social Credit policies, based  on seven year period were entering the third period in which  he forsaw further economic advancement including greater  use of wood resources including  driftwood. During the meeting  he announced that the area was  being surveyed now for secon  dary industry possibilities. He  pointed out that when the large  freighters now being built were  in use they would have to be  serviced in deep water as they  could not take the chance of  entering Burrard inlet.  Summing up he described the  election as being a cha'lenge  between NDP socialism and Social Credit free enterprise.  Diamond wedding  The diamond'wedding of Mr.  and Mrs. J. Milford McAllister  was celebrated on Aug. 13 at  the home of their daughter,  Mrs. William Swain. The living  room of the new Swain home,  built high on a rock overlooking Halfmoon Bay, was gay  with masses of flowers ��� potted plants, .basket floral arrangements and vases of choice  blooms from the gardens of  friends and neighbors.  Mr. McAllister, 89, and his  wife Clara, 83, were in fine form  and were on hand throughout  the day to welcome their many  guests. They received telegrams  of congratulations from H. M.  Queen Elizabeth and from  Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson.  From Alert Bay came their  son Ernest with his wife Virginia and son Gregg. Grandson  Larry McAllister arrived from  Toronto and granddaughter Carol McAllister from Vancouver.  Other guests from Vancouver  were Mr. and Mrs. Dave Gow,  Miss Helen Gow, Mr. and Mrs.  Sam Douglas, Mr. and Mrs. Neil  MacDonald and Mrs. Art Hay.  Mr. Syd Wilson of Gibsons was  present and their was a constant stream of neighbors and  friends from the Bay dropping  in during the day.  Mr. and Mrs. McAllister were  married 60 years ago in Lorne-  ville, St. John County, New  Brunswick, where Mr. McAllister was a fisherman and Mrs.  McAllister one of the fastest  fishnet knitters along that part  of the coast. They came to British Columbia in 1923 and from  that time till his retirement in  1955, Mr. McAllister spent the  fishing season each year in Rivers Inlet where he was net boss  at the B.C. Packers cannery.  After spending six summers in  Halfmoon Bay, they settled  there permanently in June 1965.  Up 346  for total  of 1,437  Gibsons population according  to the June census has reached  1,437 or 346 higher than the 1961  census figure of 1,091.  This was' revealed at Tuesday  night's municipal council meeting when Gibsons clerk Charles  Gooding placed information  from the Dominion Bureau of  Statistics before council. He  explained the figure was unre-  vised and could change slightly.  Council felt satisfied with the  figure this was far different  from general reaction to the  1961 figure. It raised quite a furore and through efforts of officials aided -by the Coast News,  some 82 names which should  have been recorded were added  Most of the names were of well  established citizens.  This increase in population  will also increase the government grant for municipalities  wh'ch is now $20 a head and will  take effect on the new budget  .year in. 1967..  Another  item   before   council  concerned Cy Johnson and his  Seaside Plaza block of stores.  The Welcome Cafe is seeking a  liquor licence and it would be  up to him to provide rest rooms  which  he  planned ��� to build on  the platform on the south side  of   the   building.   Council   after  hearing Mr. Johnson and questioning him on the state of the  building,   decided  to  not  allow  further extensions on the building until the present edifice was  completed    and    fire    hazards  cleaned   up.   Mr.   Johnson   on  leaving declared he agreed with  all council had to say.  Council also decided to let the  law take its course in the case  of over^parking in areas where  there is a time limit. It approved of having a test case to show  that the parking regulation  means what it states.  Fire district  trustees vote  Ken Crosby, Wiljo Wiren and  Bernice Chamberlin were elected trustees for Gibsons Fire  Protection District at a meeting  Friday night in Gibsons Anglican Parish Hall, with 18 present. Ken Crosby will serve a  three year term, Wiljo Wiren,  2 years, and Bernice Chamberlin one year.  Bill Scott, fire chief, thanked  the committee of the area fire  department for the work done  in the past, and their assistance  in stting up the Fire Protection district.  Cece Chamberlin was chairman of the meeting, and Wiljo  Wiren secretary.  HEALTH UNIT DOCTOR  While no official announcement has been made through  Coast-Garibaldi Health Unit, it  is understood Dr. P. J. Reynolds, from Leeds, England  will replace Dr. A. J. Cunningham as director of the unit. Ke  is due sometime in October.  Dr. Cunningham is returnng to  private practice, in Powell River.  SIGNS  MUTILATED  During Monday night's Social  Credit meeting in Gibsons Legion hall stickers and posters  on cars of Social Credit adherents parked in the area,  were torn off or mutilated.

If Gibsons Centennial committee plans to start work in September on a Centennial project financed by local, provincial and  federal money, it will be a miracle.  The committee was organized two years ago, starting its work  in May, 1964. If anyone at the initial meeting had expressed the  thought that the whole idea would turn out to be a waste of time,  he or she would have been most unpopular.  However ��� two years later, last Wednesday to be exact, Centennial committee Chairman Sam Fladager advised the members  to adopt a different attitude and as he said "stop opposing."  It is true there is a Centennial project in hand, an Olympic  style swimming pool, but it exists in name only.  Back in June 1964 an effort was made to have the entire district from Port Mellon to Roberts Creek in one Centennial project. It was thought that this would be the way to get the best  out of the Centennial idea. It would have meant that a good sum  of money could have been acquired for one general project.  In May of that year C. P. Ballentine, appearing before the  Chamber of Commerce in Gibsons pleaded for chamber support  in the Brothers Memorial Park scheme. The chamber members  voted in favor of it. One week later Gibsons council expressed  the opinion that no Gibsons Centennial money would be spent outside the village. This killed the idea of Gibsons helping Brothers  Memorial Park.  Centennial committee Chairman Fladager, from the start of  the Centennial project scheme maintained it was up to the public to decide what the project should be. A ballot published in  the Coast News was used to get opinions. On Nov. 5, 1964, the  result was published with 315 votes out of 340 in favor of a Gibsons Park (old United Church) project.  , Later it was decided that constructing a rest room in the  park was not a proper type of Centennial project so it was dropped. In December of last year a decision was reached between  the Port Mellon committee and Gibsons committee to work towards construction of a swimming pool.  Since December the problem has been where to put the swimming pool. Suggestions range from a tidal pool at the Municipal  beach area to a slicker type pool associated with the schools. The  school board is not in a position to help finance it so the matteri  is left in the hands of the Centennial committee.  A commitee of three was named last Wednesday night to get  lined up if possible, some real estate back of the Elementary  school or adjacent to Kinsmen park, for a swimming pool. If anyone  imagines this committee will be able to report any real accomplishment to the next meeting it will be surprising. In the meantime Port Mellon's representatives on the committee have stated  that unless something tangible occurs quickly, it will have to pull  out and operate on its own at Port Mellon, instead of helping to  build a pool in Gibsons.  Miracles have been known. Gibsons coffee row admits this  Taut coffee row is betting on no Centennial project for Gibsons.  Coffee row members may be astute gamblers. The Coast News  awaits proof of this.  Deathrs salesmen  Guns ��� no money down!  This has aroused one letter writer who is horrified at the  thought. She has even gone so far as to test whether a gun can  be purchased, no money down. By the time this is in paint she  expects to have the gun in her possession.  Her horror arises from the result of the gunplay at Houston,  Texas, when a sniper caused the deaths of 17 people. At the same  time it should be noted that the sniper was killed in the same  manner by a policeman also armed with a rifle.  Apparently the point the letter writer desires to drive home  is the manner in which anyone can purchase a weapon which  ��an cause death with comparative ease.  In this no money down age there is considerable looseness  In the disposal of goods. However it should not be carried to extremes. As matters now stand when one obtains a rifle, a hunting  license is necessary before it can be moved from place to place.  As regards small arms, like revolvers and pistols, they are registered in the owner's name and their movement is under control.  It is inevitable that sometime, someone is going to run amuk  no matter how tight regulations are on weapons, whether lethal  or otherwise. Just how to master the problem of keeping people  from having troubles with weapons is another one of those thorny  affairs. Perhaps a tighter grip on their saleability might be the  answer.  South Carolina happy  South Carolina has just lived  through another fiscal year in  its unusual fashion ��� within its  means, The Christian Science  Monitor reports.  When every bill is paid this  year the state expects to pocket a $15 million to $20 million  surplus. It will kick back $3.5  million of that to the countries  for education. The rest will be  put in the reserve.  South Carolina collected $332  million last fiscal year in taxes.  That was $49 million more than  the year before ��� and without*  any tax hike. Officials look for  a still higher intake and still  more surpluses ahead.  The state has no general in-  debetdness and no bank loans.  Its only obligations are bonds.  But they are all secured by  pledged revenue  In this day of fads and fancies  everyone is entitled to an allergy. Hypo's is camping. It stems  back to a weekend when the  two young folk in her household  persuaded her to accompany  them on an overnight trip up  the mountain back of Roberts  Creek. Aunt, too, accepted their  invitation to go, and this was  astounding in as much as she  cusomarily refused to walk even  as far as the corner mailbox.  At any rate Aunt was a valiant figure as she left the car  that Saturday and struck off up  the trail, staggering only slightly under her load of camping  equipment. Before she had progressed very far she realized  that she had erred in the matter  of selecting a sleeping bag. The  one she caried, at arm's length  was particularly large and  heavy. She was later to complain that her arms had become  two inches longer and loose at  the sockets. Aunt was sometimes given to exaggerating.  Long before reaching her destination she improvised a means  of carrying the bag across her  shoulders thereby introducing a  note of gaiety into the picture,  the bag being generously bound  with her son's best and brightest neckties. The new method  of supporting the load required  that she hold both arms rigidly  upwards which meant that many  stops had to be made in the ascent in order to massage and  rostore feeling in the numbed  lifeless members.  On her belt she carried four  aluminum cups and a saucepan,  put there as an afterthought at  the last minute. The tinkle of  the cups as they brushed each  other, and the deeper tones of  the pan each time she hit it  with her knee as she squirmed  under, or toppled over fallen  trees, resulted in a muted symphony which, though lacking in  volume, served to keep wild  life at a distance.  * * .*  Aunt's progress up the log-  strewn trail was further impeded by the drooping of her  Indian sweater from its place  across the bag, and she was  forcejd to stand helplessly while  someone, usually Sheila, answered her plea of "Will somebody please unveil me?" A  paper bag filled with grapes  and tomatoes which she had  thoughtfully brought along gave  her some little  trouble too.  Hypo, nattily attired in the  bib overalls she wore on special occasions, added a hunting knife to her costume, tied  loosely about her waist, and  her sleeping bag tossed across  her shoulders and tied there  by Jon. She carried an oversize lantern and felt as one  with Diogenes.  * * *  Sheila was decked out in a  water bucket and accesories to  start with but ended up with  Aunt's bag of fruit and sweater.  Besides his bed rool ar.d  Hypo's heavy Indian sweater,  Jon carried a pack board on  his back, and a pack sack overflowing with all manner of groceries and cooking utensils. He  was quite stubborn in his refusal to take along bread and  butter plates and sponge bags  but other than that seemed  quite good-natureld, even merry.  The territory through which  they passed had been/familiar  to Hypo in her far-distant youth  and she looked about in vain  for old land marks. Of the house  built and accupied by the senior  Browns, besides a bridge over  one of the creeks there was  not a trace. The trail somewhere in the vicinity which led  off to young Earl Brown's preemption was completely obliterated. Hypo well remembered following it, when it was  newly made, through the aeep  and silent forest to the iittie'  two-roomed cabin Earl had  built for his bride, and the oi. *?  with which little Abbie Brow  served lunch to her first guests,  using her shiny, new pots anc*.  pans and dishes.  Somewhere near, too, th_i<:  had been a trail leading off to  the five-roomed house built by  the North family. Upon its completion the family moved in and  stayed one night. Mrs. North's  asthma had sent them scurrying to sea level the next morning.  # * *  Of these and other pioneeis  Hypo dissertated as she panted  up the overgrown trail, Aunt  tinkling close behind. Hypo also  considered which reducing diet  to start come Monday.  The first real stop was made  at the old Harrison place where  Mr. Harrison had carved a  home out of the wilderness and  alone brought up two sons.  The old    house,     hand-hewn  from the bush,  still  stands in  its large clearing which is partly fenced and abounds in grass,  fruit trees and remnants of a  garden.    Everything    movable  had    been    stripped from the  house, but the remaining floor,  roof and sides looked good to.  Aunt and Hypo as they thankfully let their rolls slip to the  floor and sank down upon them.  They munched happily on sandwiches  and much  of the fruit  from Aunt's paper bag. On bits  of  the   bag,   too,   as   the  contents  were   somewhat  crushed.  *      *      *  Aunt and Hypo were all for  making camp   right   there. but  the young ones urged them on.  The trail became more tangled  with undergrowth    and    fallen  trees   as   they  progressed   up-    '  ward    and    Hypo    reminisced    '���  plaintively of former days when    ;  the means of travel along this  route was by car.  About mid-afternoon they  ducked under a low-hanging  hornets' nest and came out on  the old Fleming Camp clearing  still dominated by its huge log  stable with part. of the roof  caved in and the floor missing.  At the clearing's edge were  the remains of foundation posts  and timbers where once stood  buhkhouses, and beyond, visible  iri the weeds and undergrowth,  was the rotted floor of the main  house where the Fleming family lived.  -. "Now there," said Hypo, "was  THE COAST NEWS  19 UitllS 11,1)  Approximately $100,000 will  be invested in a new mill at  Porpoise Bay by the B.C. Fir  Company,  Sechelt.  Mr. E. J.

That's financial independence. A wife  likes to feel she hasn't lost all her independence to become "just a housewife."  You know, it's surprising how quickly this 'independent' feeling grows when she has her own Bank of Montreal savings account. She deposits small amounts regularly, and when she wants ready cash for a new hat or  a pair of shoes, it's there at the B of M, with interest.  Why not visit the Gibsons or Sechelt branch of the  B of M soon? The accountants Jim Smith or Frank Farreli  will be glad to show you how easy it is ��� and how profitable, to open a B r6f' M savings account.  Advt. Coast News, Aug. 18, 1966.      3  H  yp��  (Continued from Page 2)  and not at all as Aunt and Hypo  had planned. While Jon made  the camp ship - shape with  shelves for food, and nails to  hang cups and the lantern, Aunt  was put to work with Sheila  to gather wood, and Hypo  whittled off cedar branches for  mattresses, her thoughts turning frequently, with nostalgia,  to her inner-spring, un-tenanted  at home.  When Sheila broke into Jon's  off-key whistling to praise his  work and to announce that it  was the cosiest spot ever for  a camp, . Aunt, energetically  shaking woofcl bugs and ants  from the undersides of bark,  muttered darkly that she knew  of an even cosier spot; "it has  rockers under it, a light over  it, a fire-place at one end of  it, and a table beside it that  holds a book and a pot of tea."  "Furthermore," she grumbled,  "I don't know what possessed  me to leave it."  "What you need," Sheila said,  grasping a water pail, "is a  cup of tea." And off she went,  along a faintly defined trail  leading to the creek which ran  to the west of the camp.  *       *       *  Moments later she was back  with an empty bucket and the  alarming news that the creek  of yesteryear had dried up.  Roberts Creek lay to the  southeast, not far from- camp,  but its banks were steep and  deep and the problem would  be to climb- down to the water.  Leaving Jon to finish making  camp the three women, armed  with pots and pails, set out on  a water hunt. They retraced  their steps to the clearing and  then found the old trail which  followed the creek in an easterly direction. As they fought  their way tiredly along the rim  they caught tantalizing glimpses  of the sparkling water far below. .  By now, Sheila remarked,  after some time had elapsed,  we must be nearly to Port Mellon.  "Nonsense," Aunt groaned.  "We can't be more than five  miles from camp, and one from  that water down there."  Aunt ducked under a tree  which lay across the path, and  hit her head on a branch as  she stood up on the other side.  When Hypo came to the same  tree she elected to go over it  and hurtled down the bank  where she fetched up against a  tree. She called to the others  there was a reasonably cleared way down. It was, too. Nothing grows on a perpendicular  cliff. The water swirled and  tumbled over slippery rocks  and so did Hypo and the others  when  they rolled in.  It took a lot more time to  climb back to the trail with  the filled receptacles than the  descent which had been made  in seconds. The wonder was that  they finally did reach the top,  and with some of the water still  in the pails.  The camp fire, on a bed of  stones in the shed near the  broad doorway, soon had the  occupants forced outside, chocking and gasping. Dense smoke  was everywhere. The ever-ingenious Jon leaped to the roof  and propped up some shakes, allowing the smoke to escape,  and soon the quartet was buisi-  ly engaged in the confusion of  cooking dinner.  It was an unhappy time for  Hypo. From her height the  campfire at her feet seemed  far away, particularly as by  then the bruises she sustained  in the combat with the gully  were making themselves fo?t,  and her elderly bones were  creaking ominously with every  painful move.  She was not one to do much  stooping  if  she  could  help   it.  At   home   she   had  everything  built to suit her height and at  one time when Aunt mounted a  chair  to  reach  in  a  cupboard  over the sink she examined the  drain board and exclaimed "So  this   is   what it  looks  like  up  here." Aunt was a wit. Actually    the    laundry tubs, ironing  board   and   work   areas   were  only   four   inches   higher   than  the norm. Hypo thought yearningly of them now.  '  * -   *      *  With dinner cooked they pulled up  small logs around  the  fire and hungrily downed soup,  crisp steak, strong coffee, well  grounded,   and   smoked   bread.  The   tin   of   pears   might   well  have been the best part of tho  meal had Jon not dumped them  ���on the floor while reaching for  a  candle  to  see  what he  was  doing.   Hypo   had  remembered  to pack serviette rings but had  forgotten  the can opener.  After Sheila and Jon washed  and put away the dishes, Jon  tossed wood on the embers to  make a glowing fire and then  got out the Canasta cards.

A  ENTRY FORM  FANCY DRESS & PET PARADE  SUNSHINE   COAST   FALL   FAIR  AUGUST 20 ��� 1:30 p.m.  Assembly covered area. Far side of Fair Building  NAME   ADDRESS       CLASS:   Fancy Dress    Originals    Comic    Pets   Entry must be presented to parade chairman at time of parade  success. The game dragged. A  candle stuck in a bottle had to  be dealt along with the cards  as the lantern gave insufficient  light, the score pad and pencil  kept dropping into the dark  crevices of the floor, the smoke  veered about causing coughing  and gasping for breath, and  partners passed cards over the  open fire at their peril.  The four rotated so that the  one backing up to the open door  could thaw out. It was not long  before the wall to wall sleeping  bags lying across the far end  of the shed began to look deceptively tempting to Hypo's  smoke-filled bleary eyes.  *        $        sjc  Sheila and Jon took the two  outside bags, thus helping to  keep out the draft, and Hypo '  lowered her aching bulk down  beside Jon. Aunt put herself  neatly between Hypo and Sheila  and came as close to swearing  as Hypo had ever heard her.  While the four were zipping  their bags, winding watches and  trying to settle their limbs comfortably for sleep, bright remarks shot back and forth between the young one's. Hypo's  occasional remarks were caustic and . Aunt was strangely  silent. Then utter stillness  spread over them like a blanket.  "Outer space must be like  this," Hypo thought, "only  safer."  The firelight danced fitfully  throwing patterns of modern  art on the walls. To ber left  Hypo heard Aunt turning quietly so as not to disturb anyone,  and she too turned as her side  had become paralysed. She  landed on one of the cedar  boughs from which she had  failed to strip the jagged ends  on branches. With muttered remarks suitable to the occasion  she hoisted her bed nearer to  Jon.  Jon's voice, amused, came  softly. "What's the matter  Mom? Did you get some of the  stumps too? I thought you had  given them all to me."  Sheila's laughing voice float  ed from the far wall. "She  doesn't play favorites. I have  my full  share."  "I don't know what I have,"  murmured Aunt, "but whatever  it is you may have it back."  Even under trying circumstances Aunt would say may  instead of can.  Jon might have slept without  waking until morning had not  Hypo, sleepless and benumbed,  envisaged hoards of drooling  wild animals prowling around  the shed each time a sound  broke the eerie quiet outside,  and wakened him to tell him  the fire needed more fuel. Towards morning he had become  quite discourteous and she  wondered' if he were coming  down with something.  Aunt revolved quietly all night  except for a brief moment when  she slipped from her bag, groped for the flashlight and silently left the shed. Her return was  so precipitous' that she threw  herself headlong over Hypo and  into her bag, where she found  it to be, briefly, almost comfortable.  * "     *       *  By morning Aunt and Hypo  had taken a good inch off their  respective hips and probably  young folks were gay and lively  several years off their lives. The  and Jon hadn't come down with  anything after all. They had  breakfast well under way and  the heady aroma of coffee and  frying bacon supplied the stimulus for the two older women to  coax their battered bodies into  a vertical position. As they inched up to the wash basin outside the door, Aunt limping  painfully and Hypo forcing herself onward in a crab-wise manner they felt the first drop of  rain.  There never was a descent  made in better time. Hypo, trifocals discarded, weak ankles  forgotten, avoirdupois and suffering back ignored, set the  pace, and loped down the mountain side, bed roll and lantern  swinging in the breeze, taking  logs and fallen trees in graceful    leaps     at such a rate of '  speed that even Jon had difficulty in keeping pace.  Fear of being left behind, and  still clutching the bag with the  remains of the grapes and tomatoes,. Aunt somehow managed to keep within sight, and  only Sheila lagged, doubled up  in what seemed to Hypo, glancing back, an attack of hysteria  or perhaps stomach pains. She  thought fleetingly that maybe  it was Sheila who. was coming  down with something. For that  matter they all would be in bed  tomorrow with pneumonia, or  worse.  They were drenched to the  skin by the time they reached  the car, which was standing in  six inches of water. They sloshed through to it and attempted  to wring the water from clothing and sleeping bags before  climbing in, Aunt doing so with  difficulty as she was using both  hands to hold the fruit, the bag  having given up some miles  back.  "Are you coming in for coffee or do you wane to go  straight home?" Jon asked  Aunt as they neared the crossroads.  "Just take me home. Please!"  Aunt said, with what Hypo  thought was unnecessary emphasis.  "Grapes, anyone?" Aunt asked, always polite, as she alighted at her  door.  Later over steaming coffee,  Jon and Sheila gleefully recalled  the  hignlights  of  the  trip,  GIANT  BINGO  NO GAMES LESS THAN $10  $50 MINIMUM JACKPOT  DOOR PRIZE  FUN FOR All  Thurs., ing. 18  8 p.ffl.  SHARP  LEGION HALL  GIBSONS  Sheila with eyes brimming over  and with recurring shaking  spells. Hypo's concern seemed  to increase her suffering. Although many of Jon's remarks  were pointless and went right  over Hypo's head, one thing he  said, loud and clear, caused her  to choke on her coffee.  "Next time we'll go for three  days and get to that mountain  behind there ��� two days to go  up and one to get back."  Shattered, Hypo made a note  of her Doctor's telephone number on the pad and retired to  bed to wait for pneumonia to  set in.  The .

After a move  to Vancouver, and an accident  which caused the loss of an arm  he returned to education and  was awarded a degree in mining  engineering from Vancouver  Technical School.  'He spent a year in the Cariboo and one year in the Yukon  prospecting for gold.  In 1938 he moved to Gibsons,  and over a span of 20 years  pursued a career of deep sea  fisherman and travelled in his  40 ft. troller from California to  Prince Rupert. Off the coast of  California he fished for the giant  tuna. .  For the past three years Mr.  Nygren has operated Walt Nygren Sales Ltd., a marine and  sporting goods store.  In 1950 he organized the Gibsons Rod and Gun Club.  He serves as marine chairman of the Gibsons Chamber of  Commerce, and last year participated in July 1 celebrations  as ground chairman.  When he served as chairman  of the Chamber of Commerce  several years age, he was instrumental in acquiring a federal  government grant for breakwater and floats at the Gibsons  dock.  He and his wife Clara, a former area public health nurse,  have six children, and a foster  child;:;.Vicki Johnson.

A POSTPONEMENT  Owing to an earlier commitment, Mrs. Isabel Dawson announces the Thursday night  social at Madeira Park will be  postponed to a later date.  Redrooffs  derby big  After a stormy, rain-drenched  night, August 13 dawned calm  and fair for the salmon derby  organized by the Redrooffs  Beach and Country Club. The  fish, however, were hard to  find and no very big ones came  to take the alluring bait offered  by so many eager anglers. The  biggest salmon entered was a 7  lb. fish caught by T. W. Hesel-  ton, guest of Mr. George Nairn.  At the presentation of prizes  at the Syd MacDonald property,  President Chris Dalton expressed thanks to C. I. Taylor and  Bruce Caple for convening the  sports regatta on July 30, to  Robbie McPherson who organized the water-skiing contests  and to Dr. Joe Paine for his efficient planning of the salmon  derby.  He reported the tennis tournament, convened' by Joan  Straight was still running and  that the prizes could not yet foe  awarded. Prizes for water. skiing went to Ruth Lefeaux, Susan Birrell, Rabbie McPherson,  Brian Williams and to Phil Mil-  ard in the 16 and under class.  The Stoker cup for the largest  salmon caught by a resident  was won by Peter Birrell. In  announcing the prize for the  largest salmon entered, Mr. Dalton said it was only fitting that  he should receive the prize of a  fish box from the hands of Mr.  Bill Thom who had generously  donated this prize every year  for many years past. A fishing  rod, prize for the second largest  salmon, was won by Gordon  Heselton.  Nine year old Richard Stoker,  a great grandson of the late  Howard P. Stoker who donated  the cup and' founded the Redrooffs annual Salmon Derby in  1935, won the largest salmon in  the under 14 class prize. The  second largest was caught by  Bruce Robinson Jr.  Interested participants in the  day's events were Francis Stoker, a great nephew of the late  Howard P. Stoker and his wife  Ann, from Manchester, England  who are guests of the Syd Mac-  Donalds. Mr. Dalton was given  a vote of thanks for all his efforts on behalf of the club.  Movie News  Ed Sullivan plays himself in  Metro - Goldwyn - Mayer's The  Singing Nun at Twilight theatre,  Gibsons this week Wednesday  to Saturday. Debby Reynolds  has the title role as Sister Ann  and Greer Garson is the mother  superior. In the film Sullivan  recreates the Singing Nun on  his famous  television  show.  Sister Ann, one of the nuns at  Samaritan house brings along  her guitar on which she has  composed light-hearted songs  and sings them to the underprivileged children in the home.  These songs make her a celebrity. Ricardo Montalban, Agues  Moorhead, Chad Everett and  Katherine Ross also appear in  this fine film inspired by tbe  song Dominique.  997 boats  The fisheries branch with  headquarters in Vancouver on  Sunday morning, Aug. 7, used  a spotter aeroplane to find out.  Here is the report as issued by  the fisheries branch.  Since the arrival of the cur-  cent spell of warm summer  weather, salt water sport fishing has become the number one  outdoor recreation in the lower mainland area ��� judging  from the recent turnout of anglers in the Vancouver - Howe  Sound area.  An aircraft survey of the area  Sunday morning, Aug. 7, counted a total of 997 boats on the  water; 122 boats in the Roberts  Creek to Gower Point area; 260  from Gower to Cowan's Point;  345 inside Howe Sound; 186 in  Burrard Inlet and the English  Bay area up to the Lions Gate  Bridge; and 84 in waters adjacent to Tsawwassen Beach. The  fishery officer's estimate of total effort for this past week in  round figures totalled 4,000 boat  days, which makes it the highest week on fisheries department records for this season.
