HUNTING KNIFE FOUND  A hunting knife in a leather  belt an/i sheath apparently left  on the top of a car was found  by Mrs. E. Forbes of Seaview  road.

They  have lived at Hopkins Landing  for the last 38 years.  Area insurance company representatives will have a chance  to tender on the school board's  tender for primary and excess  insurance or any other type of  insurance. Tenders close at 5  p.m.  Aujgust 17.  This countermands the previous ruling that only three Vancouver firms will be able to  tender. This was announced by  Peter Wilson, board secretary-  'treasurer after the meeting of  July 28 when Mrs. Celia Fisher  moved seconded by Mr. D.  Douglas and carried unanimous- ,  ly that the board adopt primary  and excess insurance coverage  and that three firms be invited  to bid for school district busi-  School insurance involved  -ness.  Local     insurance    operators  have  informed their  offices in  ^Vancouver of this development  'and are awaiting advice as to  >their   reaction   to   the   board's  jmove.  p Primary and excess insurance  is a fairly new development in  the insurance field and consists  'of Insuring only the largest unit.  In the case of the school district     Elphinstone     secondary  'school is the largest. By the  time the  new construction has  -been     added    to    Elphinstone  school along with equipment the  insurance value will be in the  region of $1,000,000. If a fire  occurs at any other school it  is covered within the $1,000,000  policy and if such a fire involves the entire $1,000,000, the  policy is replaced immediately  in thes ame amount and at no  cost to the board.  Under the former method of  insuring school buildings, each  building with equipment was  assessed at. value and insured,  for that amount. According to  remarks   at   the   school   board  Sports field takin  The names of L.S. "Al" and  George Jackson will be recorded in a memorial cairn to be  erected by Gibsons and Rural  Centennial Committee this year  in Brothers Memorial Park, on  Park  Road.  In 1942 a donation of five  acres was made by the brothers  to the government, with the  ���stipulation that it would be developed as a park site.  Al Jackson is well remembered for his literary contributions of Loggers Tales to the  Coast News in the 1950's. He is  also remembered , as a philanthropist who shied away from  any public recognition. There  were many young people who  benefited through his financial  aid and counsel.  One of his keenest interests  was the building of roads to  link the various villages along  the coast. He forcefully promoted the building of a road to  Port Mellon, and the roads from  Pender Harbor to Earls Cove  and a road to Egmont.

BOXES  Population growth in the area  has resulted in 141 addition;'.!  past office boxes being placocl  in Gibsons post office, James  Marshall, post master ,announces. These boxes, already  in place, will be made. available for public use shortly.  Space has been left for a further increase as the situation  demands it.  When the SS Beaver visits  Gibsons on Friday, Sept*. 9 at  about 3 p.m. for a two day stay,  Sam Fladager, chairman of Gibsons Centennial committee has  expressed the desire that those  ' who can wear garbed in fashions  100 years ago, please do so  that a fitting welcome can be  arranged.  The vessel commanded by Lt.  Ian Sturgess carries a crew of  one officer and ten men. The  vessel is 160 feet in length, 33  feet wide, paddle boxes of 17  ft. length and will be open for  inspection to the public.  TO CHECK ON PARADES  Gibsons council plans to  check into the need for permission to hold parades on its chief  highway in view of Centennial  celebrations for next year. Letters to Victoria officials will  point out there is no other place  for such events.  SOCCER  The Peninsula Rangers, preparing for a second season in  a Vancouver and District Soccer league, will hold their second practice of the season  Thursday at 7 p.m. at Elphinstone High School. Interested  soccer players are urged to attend.  It will be benthed from about  3 p.m. on the Finday and remain available to the public until 9 p.m. and will be open until  the same hour on Saturday.

Store sold  Ed Anderson of Gibsons Hardware reports that Mickey Parse  of West Vancouver will take  over control of the store in Gibsons, a Mashall-Wells store, on  Sept. 12. In the meantime the  Andersons have as a project  construction of a new home on  Georgia Heights and have received permission to construct  a garage first for storage purposes while the home is being  built. The Andersons took over  the store in 1335.  CLINIC PROBLEM  To keep the proposed new medical clinic on the lower level  in Gibsons, an effort will be  made to see what can be done  to help the doctors in settling  on available property. This was  decided at the last Gibsons  council meeting. Councillor Sam  Fladager will confer with the  doctors to see what can be done.  Reports say the clinic may nave  to go up the hiJl on the upper  level.  Logging Company and sawmill.  Approximately 125 men were  employed.in the 1930's. During  the difficult depression years  he managed to keep his business in operation and maintain  a full payroll.  The Elphinstone High School  yearbook of 1959 was dedicated  to the memory of Mr. A. L.  Jackson, who died in October,  1955. He had provided funds for  scholarships and assisted where-  ever posible in school projects  and affairs.  George Jackson followed in  the family tradition the butcher  trade. He operated a successful business in Vancouver for  many years, and his sons now  continue to operate the Dominion Market.  In 1958 the acreage was taken  over as a project by the Centennial Committee for development.  Ten additional acres were  purchased by the committee to  provide a 15 acre area. Mr. C.  P. Ballentine was given full  authority to develop the property. He succeeded in raising  a total of $3,750. $1,000 was contributed by the Port Mellon  Community Association, and  further donations raised the  total to $3,750. $2,700 was spent  in clearing  seven  acres.  At a meeting held in the  spring of 1965, the Kiwanis Club  asked for and were granted permission to develop the property.  Six acres are now being developed through the co-operative efforts of the Kiwanis Club  and the Gibsons and Rural Centennial Committee to provide  two baseball diamonds and a  soccer field.  Trustees for the park land  are Mike Jackson, A. Ritchey,  F. Holland, W.S. Potter and  Jules  Mainil  LIFE-JACKETS FOUND  Two new red life-jackets and  a child's plastic pail were found  on Franklin Beach Monday by  Colleen McPhedran. The owner can claim them at the. Coast  News office.  meeting something like 26 percent will be saved on school  district  insurance   costs.  Insurance problems received  major attention bade in June of  1965 when it was reported to the  board that for the first time trus  tees had a complete and comprehensive appraisal of property, buildings and equipment  owned by the taxpayers.  In tabling at that board meeting a 268 page report, Mr. P.  Wilson, the secretary-treasurer,  stated that a preliminary comparison of the insurance now  carried by the school district  and the coverage recommended  toy Marshall and Stevens (Canada) Limited, the firm retained  to make the appraisal for the  board, made it appear that the  coverage might be reduced1 by a  little over one-half a million dollars. Coverage costs 85 cents  per thousand dollars. , ���  The reduction in coverage is-  based on the fact that at pres-*  ent buildings and equipment are  insured for $2,378,000 and the  appraisers recommend that in->  surance.coverage.be based on.  the undepreciated insurable  value of $2,045,240. Many school  districts-are insuring only 909_*  of. .the. .established value of their (  assets while being covered for  100% of "any loss.  -The figures will be .kept up to-  date, on the basis ot ^annual figj  ures for new construction and  equipment and.toy physical.re-  checks' every four or five years1  air _f".cost of a few. hundred dollars. The cost of; the original  appraisal was $3,000.  Mr.   Wilson  also  stated  that,  the extremely detailed appraisal  documents  were  invaluable  for inventory purposes and as a  source of reference  Plan 3rd  powerpline  In peparation for increased  power demand at Powell River  when the new plants come into  operation in the MacMillian Bloedel plant, a third transmission  line will be prepared this fall  from Cheekye through Port Mellon to Sechelt for the time being It is expected the line would  be extended to Powell River  when the demand makes it necessary.  In the meantime the right-of  way from Cheekye to Sechelt  will be extended to 250 feet to  allow for the construction of a  separate line of pylons to carry  the new line. Details of the operation will be announced later,  it is expected, probably when  the contracts are let for the  clearing. It is also expected that  to complete this line another  stretch will have to cross Jervis Inlet.  BOAT UPSETS  A report of a fast moving  small boat overturning in the  water near Salmon Rock was  phoned to ROMP Thursday but  before they could check on the  report nearby rescuers had taken the driver from the water  and righted the boat.  mnuiiiimniiiiiiniiimnuHuiiraiiinniHimininniiimimimiii...,>  SERVICE EXPANDED  A Jervis Inlet commercial air  service can now be operated by  Tyee Airways of Sechelt as the  result of the application before  the Air Transport Board receiving approval.

With this the Coast News.  heartily agrees. For the amount of money spent and work done,  the results achieved have not developed much warmth in the big  event. Possibly its wierd symbol and name Expo 67, neither of  which mean much to the public should receive a great deal of the  blame. > ,  *      *      *  The report in last week's issue from Jack Davis, M.P. for this  constitlency concerning the results of a survey by Norman D. Lea  and Associates, on boating in the Vancouver and adjacent areas,  should help western memibers of parliament offset the power of the  eastern Canadian bloc which, mainly concerned with commercial  fishing, generally opposes the idea of safety for pleasure craft. With  .20 percent of all Canadian small craft operating in B.C. waters,  and this 20 percent liable to double over the next decade, according  to the report, it is time something was done along the coastline  which will be used increasingly by Vancouver boaters.

In recent months the news  media have given much prominence to the need to design and  produce a safer automobile in  order to reduce the terrible loss  of life and heavy financial burden caused by automobile accidents. However, the experienced automobile underwriter  knows that the human factor  will continue to remain the dominant cause of accidents. In attempting to deal with this human  factor, the underwriter is often  challenged to prove that there  is validity in certain of the  standards by which the acceptability of a risk is measured.  Summarized here under are the  findings of one of the larger insurers of automobiles which, for  the past eight years, has been  doing extensive research in the  area of accident producing risks  characteristics.  TYPE OF CAR  The owners of convertibles  and sports cars have a higher  accident frequency than the  average risk. Among adults,  the owner of these cars has a  frequency 30% higher than average. Among youthful drivers,  the frequency is 20% above  average.  STABILITY  The number of job changes is  a definite factor in accident frequency. Individuals with no job  changes have a lower accident  frequency than those, with  changes, and the more changes  present the higher the frequency  The individual with four or more  job changes had an accident  pattern twice the average. He  also had a definite co-relation  with, poor . financial conditions  and a high co-relation with poor  car condition.  CONVICTIONS  Arrests and convictions proved to be a good indicator of loss  potential. An individual with  three or more traffic violations  has an accident frequency much  above the average, and usually brings with him a record of  two or more accidents. The individual with one or more  criminal arrests or convictions  is involved in twice as many  accidents as the average driver.  MARITAL STATUS  Persons who are single, separated or divorced have higher  accident frequencies than the  married group. The separated  group has a 70% higher accident frequency than the average.  ACCIDENT FREQUENCY  The driver with a record of  one previous accident will be  involved in 40% more accidents  than the average. Persons with  two previous accidents will have  twice, as many accidents as per-  Three-year ARDA project  The Winfiel'd and Okanagan  Centre Irrigation District system in British Columbia is to be  rebuilt, under the ARDA program.  Federal forestry minister  Maurice Sauve and provincial  agriculture minister Frank  Richter have announced approval of this major, three year  ARDA project, to be equally  financed by the two governments and by the district.  The B.C. water resources service- (department df lands, forests and water resources) will  implement the ARDA rehabilitation project, while the district will be responsible for operation and  maintenance.  Mr. Richter has indicated that  since the beginning of ARDA  operations, in B.C. 69 projects  have been submitted involving  a total estimated value of approximately  $21,000,000.  Of these projects 37 have now  been completed, one has been  withdrawn,  25 are  in  progress  arid six have just recently gone  forward for federal approval.  This represents an increase of  seven projects with an estimated total value of more than $5  million submitted since the last  annual report issued three  month ago.  The minister indicated further that the initial research  project on rural development is  now well under way in co-operation with a number of provincial government departments  and the federal department of  Indian affairs. He said' he expects that when this reconnaissance study is completed that  there will be several projects  reviewed so that a satisfactory  approach to establishment of  rural development areas in this  province can be provided. A  number of groups who are interested have submitted or are  working on information which  will allow appraisal of their  proposals at an early date after  completion  of the basic  study.  Minute message  It is very easy, when someone is overtaken in a fault, to  bear down upon him in bitter  condemnation. It is hard to  pause and ask ourselves: Do  we know all that has taken  place in his soul, how hard  the battle against temptation  may have been and how many  bitter pangs of remorse he may  have suffered because of his  faults?  What's done we partly may  compute, But know not what's  resisted.  The Christian attitude toward  the faults of others is one of  tolerance not impatience, helpfulness   not  haughtiness,   inter-  life'a Darkest Moment  cession not condemnation. If we  allow ourselves to be cruel and  contemptuous in our judgment  of others we strengthen in ourselves and in those we influence  the evil of fault-finding ��� the  habit of looking into other people for faults. It destroys the  Christian qualities of love,  gentleness and sympathy, it  makes it impossible for us to  befriend others, and it undermines our faith in God.  Let us love one another, for  love is of God, and he who  loves is born of God and knows  God. (1 John 4:7) ��� Rev. W.  M. Cameron, United Church of  Canada.  A WEBSITE CLASSIC  sons with one accident. Persons  with three previous accidents  will have a future accident frequency of almost four times  the average.  ATTITUDE  The individual who displays  the .belligerent, unco-operative  attitude, the unreasonable type  who is generally antagonistic  and resentful towards neighbors,  co-workers, relatives, any type  of authority, and society in general,   produced   four   times   as  many   accidents   as   the   average driver.  ACCIDENTS ACCOMPANIED  BY  TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS  A continuing study of bodily  injury losses shows that while  only about 1.5% of drivers are  charged with impaired driving  at the time of the loss, about  7% have been drinking. About  20% are charged with speeding  or reckless driving; 12% are  charged with failure to yield;  9% are charged with following  too closely and about 10% are  charged with violations other  than  the above.

If you wait until your  son or daughter is ready to start college, the money required might well be beyond your means.  That's why the practical plan is to start saving systematically while your youngster is still very young. Many  parents who can afford it begin by earmarking their  family allowance cheques for a special education fund at  the Bank of Montreal. They find it adds up tremendously  over the years. Cheques for one child saved in a B of M  account until the age of 16, total more than $1,600 including the interest, the bank says. And, of course, the money  is always available in case it's needed for some unexpected emergency.  Frank Daugherty, manager Of the Gibsons branch  of the Bank of Montreal, will be glad to give you a copy  of the B of M's folder designed to help you calculate the  cost of your youngster's higher-education program. What  you save today can do a good deal towards improving  your youngster's chances to get the best possible start in  life when high-school days are over.  Advt. Coast News, Aug. 11, 1966.

Two Jack Lake,  near Banff, Okanagan Lake  Park and a campsite in Sum-  merland they found excellent  for outdoor activities, plus interesting programs arranged by  the B.C. recreation and parks  depart  Near Summe'iand they visited an experimental farm and  fish hatchery. In Summerland  at their campsite, a fellow  camper showed slides on his  trip through Africa, India and  Japan, which the Booths found  interesting.  At Calgary, they visited Heritage Park, an aquarium and  museum, built and stocked by  a Calgary brewery. They also  visited Horseman's Hall of  Fame, where articles used by  the pioneers and their mode of  living is on display.  At their campsite in the  Okanagan, a naturalist gave lectures on Indian lore, the first  settlers, displayed wood ticks,  snakes, scorpions, bull snakes  and rubber constrictors, explaining that they were all to be  found in the area. A street  carnival and boat races were  some of the other activities of  interest.  *3f  f {  BREAKAWAY GROUP  THROWN OUT!  Pulp & Paper Workers of Canada  ... THROWN OUT at HARMAC  ... THROWN OUT at ELK FALLS  ... THROWN OUT at PRINCE GEORGE  ... THROWN OUT at PORT MELLON  if  Jr  is.  NOT   A   TRADE   UNION  The B.C. Labour Relations Board has declared that the so-called Pulp and Paper Workers of Canada is "not  a trade union." At Hearings in Vancouver, August 2 and 3, the Board threw out applications by the PPW  at Harmac, Elk Falls and Prince George, and reasserted that the Brotherhood of Pulp, Sulphite and Paper  Mill Workers is the legally certified bargaining agent of the 1,600 workers at the three mills. The PPW,  itself, pleaded with the Board fo be allowed fo withdraw its application relating fo 400 workers at Port Mellon. The Board agreed. The Pulp and Sulphite Union will continue to represent more than 7,000 workers  in B. C/s pulp and paper industry.  ft4  S'ERIOUS   VIOLATIONS  Sworn affidavits and testimony under oath before the Board showed that the PPW dissident group had committed serious violations of their own constitution; had induced workers by various subterfuges fo sign up;  and had tried fo mislead fhe Board on numerous details of their applications. The truth came out af the  Hearings and the Labour Relations Board made its decision accordingly.  s   <  tit  *>  REJECTED  %��.  The PPW breakaway group, despite admitted co-operation of the companies af three of the four locations  and its complete surrender to industry demands to change the bargaining units, was rejected by fhe Labour  Relations Board.  A scandalous sidelight of fhe PPW applications was the revelation that officers of fhe dissident group had  ignored provisions of the constitution that their own members had approved. The fact that the certification  applications were thrown out, showed that the Board was not bamboozled. The remaining members of the  Pulp and Paper Workers will want fo know why their officers were caught out misusing fhe constitution.  BACK THE ONLY UNION THAT  CAN WORK FOR YOU!

ACCIDENT   TO  HORSE  A horse harnessed to a sulky  for exercise with two girls as  passengers had a wild ride  from the Parsons home on  Mason road down towards the  highway on Monday. The horse  took off without warning at a  fast clip and finished up down  the road in a damaged condition. The girls were unhurt. The  horse now rests in a sling in  the barn of the W. H.

Following the Centennial  Country Fair at Redrooffs on  July 23, $450 towards the building of the Sechelt Library has  been handed over to the Sechelt Centennial Committee by  the joint Halfmoon Bay and Red  rooffs Road Centennial committees. At a meeting on August 5  at the Alan Greene home, the  committees agreed that the  wonderful support and co-operation they had received made  possible such a successful outcome of this, the first centennial  project. Appreciation was expressed to Mr. J. M. Cooper for  his generous support, to the  Redrooffs Beach and Country  Club who donated the fishing  derby prizes in the 14-and-under  class and to everybody who contributed in time, gifts or any  other way to the fair.  *     *     *  On Saturday, August 13, there  will be open house at the home  of Mrs. William Swain to honor  her parents, Mr. and Mrs. J.  Milford McAllister who are cele  brating their diamond wedding  on August 15.  Mr. and Mrs. Jim Graves  were too busy to take time out  for the celebration of their 25th  wedding anniversary on August  4, but they decided to accept  an invitation to have supper  with the Murphy family. They  certainly had a surprise to find  many of their friends waiting to  offer them congratulations. Hostess Mrs. Pat Murphy served a  smorgasbord supper in the  pleasant coolness of the garden.  Mr. and Mrs. Graves were presented with a tray, a set of  glasses and a bouquet of glor-  iosa daisies.  ;}c       ;{c       Jj*  Mr.  George Nairn is  at his.  Redrooffs  cottage with quests,  Mr. and Mrs. T. W. Heselton.  A busy hostess has been Mrs.  Joe Sallis whose guests have  been her sister and brother-in-  law, Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Fisher  of Everett, Washington, with  their daughter and her husband  from California. Joe Sallis'  niece, Mrs. Doris Wing and her  family from Calgary have also  been making a temporary home  at Eureka until they could settle in their new home at Gibsons. Gordon Wing is now an  'employee at Port Mellon.  New residents of Halfmoon  Bay are Mrs. Myrtle Fraser and  her children Verne, Dennis and  Leina who have moved into  Mrs. Conquest's house near the  Warne property. Mrs. Fraser is  a sister of Bob Cunningham.  Mr. and Mrs. E. F. Cook of  Vancouver celebrated their 32nd  wedding anniversary at Redrooffs as guests of the Charles  Tinkleys.  Pass account  When Chairman Wes Hodgson  presented an expense account  for $40 covering a recent trip  to Victoria during which he attended the Lieutenant-govenor's  soiree and afterwards visited  some government officials concerning municipal affairs, some  members  of council protested.  The protest concerned the  fact they were not informed that  the chairman intended to visit  government officials and that  they should have been informed as they might have had some  problems to toe discussed. The  fact he had seen some provincial officials did not please  memibers of council. However,  council decided to pass the expense account and ordered it  paid.  Freezing retains flavor  To preserve home grown fruits  and vegetables and retain that  fresh-picked flavor, freeze  them. This is the advice of L.  C. Kyle of the food processing  laboratory at CDA's Experimental Farm at Morden, Man.  He says that no other method  of preserving captures the fresh  flavor. of fruit and vegetables  as well as freezing. But there's  more to freezing than simply  popping fruit and vegetables  into a freezer and Mr. Kyle offers some pointers.  Vegetables to be frozen must  not be over-ripe. Peas, sweet  corn, and lima beans should be  sweet but not starchy, while  asparagus, carrots, beets, parsnips; spinach, Swiss chard, and  turnips should be young and  tender.  Vegetables should be frozen  as quickly as possible after being taken from the garden. First  they should be blanched to destroy the enzymes that otherwise would remain active after  Elected  president  Mrs Joyce Erickson, manager of the B.C. Weekly Newspapers Advertising Bureau Vancouver office, has been elected  president of the Advertising and  Marketing Association bf Vancouver. Mrs. Erickson has been  associated with the weekly  press for seven years and has  :been a member of ADMARK  for eight years. She is Vancouver representative of the Coast  News.  Other memibers of the executive for the coming year will  be: Vice-presidents, Hugh E.  Aikens, Cleland-Kent Western  Ltd. and Rocke Wightman, account executive, Gordon Rown-  tree and Co.

Then, should any accident develop, the white cap is easily  spotted and rescue made speedier. For added protection, beginners and even advanced  swimmers should swim with a  partner.  freezing, and could affect quality. Blanching may be done  either by immersing the vegetables in boiling water or by  steaming them in a covered pot.  The vegetables should be immersed in cold water to stop  the cooking action; then drained, and frozen.  Most kinds of fruit do not  require blanching. Apples, pears  and peaches should be dipped  in a citric acid solution (one  tablespoon of pure citric acid  powder to one quart of water)  before freezing to prevent discoloration. Fruit may be frozen  with or without sugar.  Proper use and maintenance  of a home freezer is important  for good results, Mr. Kyle  points  out.  Some suggestions: To prevent  excessive accumulation of frost,  make sure the produce is no  warmer than room temperature  when it is placed in the freezer.  Avoid unnecessary opening of  the freezer.  Check the temperature of the  storag compartment regularly.  Defrost and clean the machine  at least once a year. After defrosting, wash the storage area  with a solution of soda and water to remove food odors.  Have a serviceman inspect  the freezer at regular intervals  to reduce chances of mechanical  failure.

I am writing this article or  those of you who, like myself,  have found no way out from a  losing battle with alcohol. No  doubt, like myself and countless others, you have groped  your way through sleepless  nights of agonizing depression  after endless tragic drinking  bouts. No doubt you have experienced the blackouts, loss  of jobs, family or home and  fears that only a fellow alcoholic  knows, and perhaps you have,  while under the influence of alcohol, inflicted mental or  physical harm to those you love.

I know you  never meant to give it the  chance to mess up your life in  that way, but it does happen  to people like you and me. We  are not alone, thousands all  over the world are sick like us.  We have a disease which is  known as Alcoholism, a slow,  progressing kind that cripples  us physically and mentally.  This disease, like many others,  has no cure ��� it can, however,  be arrested only by total abstinence of alcohol.  I   am  going  to   explain   how  AA can and will work for you  if you keep an open mind and  give   it   a   sporting   chance.  *      *      *  Let's look in on the Thursday  night group meeting at the Wilson Creek Community Hall. As  we enter, we see a lively group  of  men   and   women   from   all  walks   of   life   ���   housewives,  working girls, loggers, business  men and the few still struggling  bravely  to   make   a   comeback  with a heart full of hope.  Not  all   of   these   people   are   alcoholics  ��� a  few  are  members  of a corresponding group known  in AA as Al-Anon.  This  is  an  organization   consisting   of   the  wives,   husbands   and   mothers  of alcoholics. They are not afflicted   with   alcoholism   themselves, but they attend the meetings to gain help and knowledge  to   cope with   their  loved   one.  As   one   studies  the   teamwork  between   these   two   groups,   it  is   easy  to  see  how  important  each one is to the other  I John Hbid-SmHhl  Refrigeration  PORT MELLON  TO   PENDER   HARBOUR  Phone 886-2231  from 9 a.m.  to 5:30 p.m.  Res.  886-9949  ROBERTS CREEK  ACROSS FROM POST OFFICE  The Best for You  GRADE "A"  FRESH MEATS ��� SMOKED MEATS ��� POULTRY  COOKED MEATS ���FREEZER MEATS AT COST PLUS  35 YEARS EXPERIENCE  PARKINSON'S  HEATING Ltd.

It's the Al-Anon and  alcoholic working hand in hand  with, only one goal, a life of  freedom from alcohol in their  home.  * * *  You are introduced to these  people by your first name only.  Then, over a cup of coffee, you  find you are becoming acquainted with each one individually  and you get the feeling that  these people are interested dn  you and understand your loneliness and anxieties. Soon, you  find you are deeply engrossed  in someone's story, most likely,  similar to  your  own.  It is 8:30 p.m. and the meeting is about to begin. You will  notice there are  two members  sitting  apart  from   the  others.  These two have been voted by  the group to serve as chairman  and   secretary.   The   chairman  calls the Thursday night meeting   of   the   Sechelt   Peninsula  group to order.  The  Preamble  is read aloud by a member ������  it it a priceless, condensed form  of the AA Program, telling the  newcomer  how AA  works  and  a continual reminder to the old-  timer of his sobriety. The chairman   then   selects   one   or   two  of the Twelve  Steps  of AA to  discuss  with  the  group.  Then,  each  member  has  his   or  her  chance   to  say a  word or  two  of his progress in AA or relates  a   story   of  his   past   drinking  days.  * * *  The secretary takes over with  the weekly roll call. Each Thu'rs-  it day, the members' first name  is called out and answered by  the member either here yes or  here no. Regular attendance  and a series of here no's lead  to a small birthday celebration  for the member with a year  of continual here no's. To answer here yes, means your have  had a drink, no matter how  small, between meetings; and  then you must start again. This  in AA, is known as a slip. There  are no penalties in AA, only  the member's conscience tells  him he has failed himself that  week. The roll call serves as a  great benefit for the members  to keep tabs on their own as  well as all the other member's  struggle for sobriety. It lets us  know when one of our friends  is having trouble.  * * *  The secretary then tells the  group of any notices received  by mail from the head office  in New York. Sometimes, he or  she will suggest we put on a  dance and smorgasbord for  visitors from outside groups.  AA is a free organization ��� no  one is compelled to donate, but  the members who feel they can,  do so to help keep up the maintenance of the hall or socials.  The chairman finishes off the  meeting with the Serenity  Prayer, that gives courage and  hope to alcoholics all over the  world.  The  meeting now  closed for  the  week,   all  sit  around over  coffee and cakes, discussing the  casual affairs of our day. Sometimes, there is a problem such  as   a   member   off  on   a   slip.  This   affects   the   group   as   a  whole  and  we  try  to find out  where our lost one went wrong  and had we,  in  any way,  unconsciously failed them.  *       *       *  However,   our   knowledge   of  AA tells us the answer that our  Slippers  are  having  trouble  in  which any one of us  could be  in   his   or   her   shoes   an   hour  from   now.   Perhaps,   they   are  not quite ready to accept their  new way of life. They will, likely, flounder a little while longer,  but  we  all  know  that,  at  one  call from any one of our strays,  all  will   be  at  his   aid  with  a  kind,  understanding     word    of  help. The sincere ones will be  back, and the doors of our little  hall   will   forever   be   open   to  our  fallen  angels.  Coast News, Aug. 11, 1966.  The colonies of Vancouver Island and British Columbia were  united November 19, 1866 but  it was not until May 28, 1868  that the capital of the merged  colony was moved to Victoria  from Westminster.  Fund raiser for park  Fund raising projects in order  to raise $4,000 required to further develop Brothers Memorial  Park are being planned by the  Gibsons Kiwanis club.  Tickets are on sale, at $1 each  on a 14 ft. Sangstercraft fibre-  glass boat and 20 hp. motor.  On August 20 a .pancake supper will be served, for $1 a person, at Smitty's Marina, Gibsons. The drawing will be made  and the winner of the boat and  motor announced then.  The annual Salmon Barbecue,  sponsored by the Kiwanis club,  is scheduled for Sept. 18, and  will be held at the Salvation  Army Camp, Langdale. The barbecue committee met last week  at the Sargent Bay home of Mr.  J. Mathews to arrange for a  supply of fresh salmon.  Picked up  in passing  A new and enlarged edition  of Quick Canadian Facts, the  pocket annual of facts about  Canada, has been released this  week. This low-cost, up-to-date,  comprehensive reference book  covers history and geography,  population, government and  politics, the economy, industry  and finance.  It is a valuable addition to  any household or office library,  and many high schools now recommend it to their students  as a study aid. Now in its 22nd  annual edition, this 160-page, 60-  cent paperback is distributed  through book stores and leading  newsstands, and is published by  Quick Canadian Facts Limited,  Box 699,  Terminal A, Toronto.  The book is crammed with  facts but it is a long way from  being simply a statistical record.  Here is an excerpt from the  section on the weather: The  highest temperatures officially  recorded in Canada, in southern  Alberta and interior British Columbia, have been 115 degrees;  the lowest on record, reported  from Snag, in the Yukon Territory in February, 1947, is 81 degrees below zero.  Precipitation is highest on the  west coast, in some places averaging over 100 inches annually;  the Atlantic provinces average  40 inches, southern Ontario and  Quebec 35 inches, interior Canada from the Rockies to the  Great Lakes 15 to 20 inches,  the northern Territories 10 inches.  Here is the proper flag protocol: It is proper etiquette to  hoist the flag each day at sunrise and lower it at sunset; it  is left flying all night only at  sea.  Used as an indoor decoration,  the flag should be gathered and  not permitted to fall below the  level of the eyes of a seated  person. A worn and unserviceable flag should be burned to  prevent its undignified and improper use.  EXPANSION   FOR   G.M.  Expansion will more than  double the size of the present  GM of Canada parts warehouse  on Vancouver's Terminal Avenue it was announced by the  company. The building which  also houses zone sales offices  will be expanded from its present 67,676 square feet of floor  space   to   140,046   square   feet.  An item on population growth:  The greatest expansion occurred  in the first years of this century  as the wheat-growing possibilities of the West became known  and the railroads ��� building  at the rate of nearly three miles  a day in all the years from 1900  to 1914 ��� made possible the  fuller development of the country. In those years nearly three  million immigrants came to  Canada and 1913 set the all-  time peak of 400,870.  OIL BURNER SERVICE  Phone 886-2422  Haddock's  Cabana Marina  USED  OUTBOARDS  3��/_ H.P.

R. Oram  opened his new store.  Back in 1937, in the building  now occupied by the Seaview  Market, H. U. Kennett, assisted  by his young son, Dick, operated a butcher shop and ice cream  parlor. At about the same time,  Jack Bergenstrom, a Gibsons  native son, started one in a  building at the right of Roberts  The winner!  A dog and cat show, a special event of the summer playground program was held  August 2 at Seaside Park, Port  Mellon.  Mr. Phil Lawrence and Mr.  Mike Hamer judged the pets  who were entered for longest  tail, shortest ears, most colorful, and best groomed.  The best dog in all categories  was Dee-Dee, seven month old  pup, belonging to Ronnie Girard  of Port Mellon.  Fury, belonging to Denise  Littlejohn won the blue ribbon  for best groomed cat.  The Quaker Oats Co., of Canada, provided the winning ribbons and prizes of dog and cat  food.  Creek wharf, later moving to  the building now owned by the  United Church.  With the coming of the war  Dick left to join up and was  followed later by his father.  Jack - married a local schoolteacher and closed shop to work  for the North Vancouver ferries.  Roberts Creek was never with  out a meat supply, however, as  each store, grocery or general  handled meat in one way or another. In some cases it was necessary to place an order a  week ahead to have meat cut  and sent up from Vancouver.  During the early years, Dan  Steinbrunner, whose ranch was  where the Karateew's now reside, regularly butchered stock  and sold fresh meat from house  to house.  As, far back as 1910 weekly  deliveries of meat and groceries were made by a Gibsons  store, by team and wagon. Latter, Dave Bates, working for the  Drummond store at Gibsons,  rain or shine, made his rounds  in a mobile store which handled  meat and groceries.  The building at Roberts Creek  in which Mr. Oram has his store  has had a face-lifting and has  been furnished with modern fittings. It was formerly owned  by E. J. Shaw, who before his  retirement operated a general  store there, succeeding the Robinsons. It was also the first venture of M. & W., Johnny and  Keith, before they built the Super Valu. The Leek family ran  the store for a short period, and  the Donaghans and Stevens also  rented it.  The new owners have their  living quarters in an upstairs  apartment, and own' the house  beside it and the one in the rear.  Mr. Oram is a qualified butcher  and formerly was employed by  Super Valu.  11 LIQUOR CASES  July's court sessions involved  11 persons, mostly minors charg  ed with being in possession of  liquor or being found in licensed premises. Fines of up to $100  were levied. There were also 72  motor law infractions and nine  charged with improper safety  or lack of equipment or motor  boats.  School posters and classroom  posters will announce the news  in September that all public and  high school students from six to  18 years of age will be invited  to participate in the Centennial  Athletic Awards program.

Ray Williston  Minister of Lands, Forests and Wafer Resources  on behalf of the Social Credit Party  candidate for Mackenzie constituency  MONDAY, AUG 15  LEGION HALL, Gibsons  Doors Open 7:45 p.m., All Welcome IJNwai^rs^  Do you like to doodle either  with designs, words or both?  The Sunshine Coast Arts Council  needs a motto or slogan to carry the idea of community betterment in as few words as possible. A short, snappy sub-heading which can be used on letter  heads, posters, notices or announcements is desired.  Aims of the Sunshine Coast  Arts Council as set out at its  inaugural meeting in February  are:  To stimulate, co-ordinate  and encourage high Standards of arts throughout the  community.  To encourage development  of local talent, creative  skills and craftsmanship.  To conserve the natural  beauty and historical values  of the area.  The support given the Arts  Council activities which have included films, music festival, a  parade, concerts, fence-painting, art workshops, dancing and  puppets, and the steady increase  in memberships, has proven  that the time is right to promote  cultural activities and support  the growing local talent on a  district-wide rather than small  community basis.  Unfortunately, art is related  in many minds to the so-called  highbrow music or the more  avant-garde and exotic painters. While these expressions are  important and necessary to  growth, the Arts Council is not  dedicated to promote any one  face or to impose any one set  of values. It is a grass roots or  ganization seeking to build the  best possible community on the  widest possible basis. The idea  of the motto is to make the Sunshine Coast Arts Council synonymous with the best the community can offer culturally and  materially, conserving and using our natural resources for  the benefit of all.  To express all this in a few  well-chosen words is quite an  assignment but sunbathing at  the beach could be conducive to  new thoughts and ideas while  the usual pattern of our busy  lives is  temporarily put  aside.  For those who prefer to express themselves in design, a  crest or emblem is needed. A  simple black and white design  incorporating the words Sunshine Coast Arts Council or the  initials, which can be easily reproduced in a variety of med'a,  is required. Crest designs should  be subm'tted on 8 x 10 white paper.  The entry form may be used  for the motto, crest, or both, but  each entry should have an entry  form attached or facsimile there  of. Entry forms are available at  the Coast News office and in  stoi-es in the various communities in the area.  The contest is open to all,  young and old, residents or visitors, not just ��� memibers of the  Arts Council. Closing date is  October 1. Please mail entries  to Sunshine Coast Arts Council  Box 22, Sechelt, and mark the  envelope Contest. Prizes for tne  motto and crest chosen will be  selected from work of local  craftsmen.

This  last weekend they celebrated  their 35th year of the bridge  club at Mrs. Skelding's cottage  at Gibsons, playing 160 rounds  of bridge.  Birthday  in hospital  On August 2, Mr. Joe Greg-  son celebrated his 90th birthday while a patient in St. Mary's  Hospital, Sechelt. Born in Blackpool, England, Mr. Gregson  worked on trawlers and served  in the Boer war before coming  to Canada in 1902.  Full of optimism, he expected  to make his fortune in 10 years  and considers that both the  Canadian government and the  C.P.R. misrepresented the country and working conditions. He  found it difficult even to make  a living, even though he was  prepared to turn his hand to  anything.  After a fruitless search for  work in Victoria, he decided to  try the U.S., but after two years  at various jobs, including working in a brickyard at Portland,  Oregon, he returned to British  Columbia in 1904. He got a job  clearing a lot in the west end of  Vancouver at 25 cents an hour,  but was never fully paid for  the work. After that experience  he decided to start up as a contractor.  He got a contract to clear a  lot at Robson and Granville in  Vancouver for $25 and it took  him a month to do the job for  there were big cedar stumps  five feet in diameter to be moved. Although money was hard  to come by in those days, at  least, Mr. Gregson said, it  would buy something when you  did get some. 25 cents would  buy six loaves Of bread or eight  street car tickets.  In his pursuit of fickle fortune, Mr. Gregson has tried  many fields of endeavour. He  rented space in Muir's Bakery  in Vancouver and went into the  muffin and crumpet business.  In 1905 he was one of three partners who set up a small brick  kiln at Storm Bay, Sechelt Inlet. He tried logging and fishing  and ran a steam shovel for the  B.C. Hydro. He farmed on Cortes Island and now, 64 years la*-'  ter, still hasn't, made his fortune.  For several yea^s he lived in  the Columbia Coast Mission cottages at Garden Bay but he now  lives in Sechelt. He is an intelligent, selective reader and an  artist in water colors, in which  subject he recently took a correspondence course. His birthday in the hospital was appropriately celebrated with a big  birthday cake and a chorus of  Happy Birthday sung by the  nurses.  Howes fish  On Wednesday of last week  the Gordie Howe family of hockey fame arrived on the Sunshine  Coast minus Gordie who was  tied up with an obligation at  Eaton's department store in  Vancouver. Mrs. Howe with  three sons and daughter aged  from six to 13, were taken in  hand by Terry Raines, generally known as Surkatch Raines.  After a visit at the Raines home  in Roberts Creek they were taken to Pender Harbour area  where in a boat piloted by Henry  Whitaker, they went fishing in  Farrington Cove area.  The youngest member of the  Howe family caught the first  salmon. Mooching continued until the Howe family had landed  nine salmon with top weight  hitting the 12 pound wark. It  was the first visit of the Howe  family to British Columbia and  the first time they had fished  for salmon.  gge  "jevW""lJ"jr-  WELSH HYMN SING  Canadian and American Welsh  people will gather in Los Angeles on Sept. 2, 3 and 4 for their  annual Welsh Hymn singing.

Oliver, 4295 Knight Rd.,  Vancouver, TR 4-4808  V  A search for the Paul Bunyan  of the province has been launched by the Pacific National Exhibition in connection with the  Festival of Logging, a feature  of the 1966 PNE from Aug. 20  to Sept. 5.  The Festival of Logging will  show loggers' skills in three  free one-hour shows daily. Some  $15,000 in prize money will be  shared by winners bf the speed  climbing, axe-throwing, birling,  power saw bucking, pole falling  and other sporting contests.  Contestants must reside in B.C.  Daily top competitors in the  various logging events will win  prizes of $100, $50, or $20. Second place daily winners will  pocket $50, $25 and $10. Overall  champions for the entire Fair  will take home prizes ranging  from $600 down to $200. The  best logger wins the challenge  cup.  Loggers from Ladysmith,  Squamish, Kamloops, Mission  and other centres have already  signified they will enter the  competitions.  The committee selecting the  name for the challenge cup is  seeking assistance in choosing  the greatest logger of them ail.  Details about early loggers are  sketchy and the committee is  hoping people who have worked in the industry and who remember the old timers will add  to the province's store of history by forwarding their reminiscences to the PNE.  Entries must deal with real  loggers who worked in the B.C.  woods at any time in the past  or present. The committee has  already received the names of  George Moore, the Shakespeare-  spouting logger who saw the  image of Falstaff in the face  of a leering hooktender, or that  of Cassius in the approach on  an over-anxious machinery sales  man and Sid Smith, who helped build one of the greatest  timber empires on the coast  for Bloedel;- Stewart and Welch  Ltd., which later became a  corporate parent of today's  giant MacMillan Bloedel Ltd.  And there was Eustace Smith,  the famous timber cruiser who  left his mark all along the  coast.  There were colorful characters, all top loggers, like Rough-  house Pete and Eight Day Wilson and Spooky Charlie and  Blackjack Slim and the Sheik,  and there were famous superintendents like Paniky Bell, who  bossed many of today's loggers.  Information on these or other  candidates can be sent in care  of the Coast News or directly  to P. G. Martin, Festival of  Logging, Pacific National Exhibition, Vancouver 6, B.C.

Son-No.!'.  member of  canoe team  To be awakened from a deep  sleep by a jangling telephone  and luckily finding the phone  in the dark without upsetting  anything could be termed surprising. But to have the party  on the phone announce to you  that it was the Commodore of  the Saskatchewan Navy speaking to you, at 1:1'5 a.m. Wednesday morning could be classified  as startling.  The speaker was the eldest  son of the Coast News editor  and wife, Roy Cruice, 34, tfrotm  Regina, Sask., where he has  been in Scout work for many  years. As commodore he is looking after the youths and equipment of the Saskatchewan entry in the Canadian Centennial  Canoe Pageant and race now  underway and ending on Aug. 15  at Victoria. !  At present the Saskatchewan  entry is fourth in the canoe  named Henry Kelsey after Saskatchewan's famous explorer.  The phone call came (from Hope  The paddle started at Ft. St.  James and skipped the canyon  section of the Fraser River to  restart at Mission then to Langley, New Westminster, Pt. Grey,  Galiano Island, ending in Victoria on Aug. 15.  There are 10 canoes in the  race, one for each province.  The 25 ft. canoes are paddled  by nine men. The commodore  of each province is not in the  canoe crew. He looks after personal equipment and is responsible for movement toy car of  equipment from point to point.  After reaching Victoria the  canoeists, rush back to Vancouver to board planes, fly to Montreal, await the arrival of their  canoes, then paddle up the St.  Lawrence to tie in with waterways taking them to the Hudson  River down to New York. The  teams will appear on the Ed  Sullivan show on the Sunday  preceding Labor Day. None in  the Saskatchewan crew are over  20.  All this information was supposed to be in the hands of' the  editor just about the time the  trip started but the letter which  Roy had written still lies on a  table in his Regina home. It was  overlooked in the rush to get  the gang lined up for the trip.  WATCH  YOUR  WATER  Crystal-clear water from a  running stream is not necessarily pure and fit to drink.  Lakes are even less dependable,  so take no chances. Boil your  drinking water for several minutes then aerate the water by  pouring it back and forth between two containers several  times.  APOLLO PROJECT  Warner Bros, begins production this summer on Moonshot  about the Apollo project to land  men on the moon. The motion  picture will be made with the  full co-operation of the National  Aeronautics and Space administration. Portions of the story  will _ be filmed, at the NASA  center near Houston.  The studio has purchased a  book, Project Pilgrim, by Henry  Searls, and a screenplay with  the same title by Loring Mandel  The Davis Ottawa Diary  (By  JACK  DAVIS  Coast-Capilano M.P.)  After a slow start Ottawa is  beginning to show considerable  interest in port development on  the west coast. This is true particularly of Vancouver harbor.  There are projects totalling  moe than $100 million already  schheduled to go ahead between  now and 1970. The Port of Vancouver, in effect, is being rebuilt, modernized and expanded. The National Harbors Board  alone will be spending more  than $10 million on new works  in 1966.  The CNR has already started  its new $27 million bridge to the  North Shore. The construction  of the $20 million Saskatchewan  Wheat Pool grain elevator is  under way. The land is now being prepared for a now $11 million boat loading facility west of  the Second Narrows Bridge. Another may shortly be built east  of the bridge. And so it goes.  Still there is a great deal to  be done. No group is more aware of this than the Port of Vancouver Development committee.  Formed in 1964, it was set up to  advise the National Harfrors  Board on future planning. Composed of representatives from  labor, business and the municipalities around the harbor, it is  now looking more intensively at  land use around the harbor. The  optmisation of rail switching  connections and the possible  construction of a causeway across the North Arm of Burrard  Inlet are also subjects currently being investigated by the  committee.  As I have already said in previous columns the ship handling  rates charged in Vancouver  compare favorably with those  levied in Montreal and on the  West Coast of the United States.  Nevertheless there is room for  improvement. The outdated cargo rate should, be discontinued  for example.

Waterfront access is important. Forward planning envisaging roads along the waterfront  on the north and south shores of  the harbor must proceed apace'  The number of berths in the  harbor must also be increased.  More modern cargo handling  machinery must be installed.  Turning to the future we must  look ahead to the day when super-tankers asd super freighters  in the 200,000 to 300,000 ton category are plying the oceans of  the world. The first step is to  dredge the First Narrows to a  depth of 50 feet. Next, we must  look further afield. We must  look to sites like Sturgeon Banks  for example. There, ships drawing more than 50 feet can be  berthed. Larger acreages of  land are also available.  Sooner or later we will need  a Regional Port Authority.
