I  Union  Labor relations Board hearings in the certification application of Port Mellon Canadian  Forest Products employees by  the Pulp and Paper Workers of  Canada union will start on Tues-  |      day, Aug. 2.  The board is to hear a number of similar applications by  the union which is seeking certification at Elk Falls, Harmac  and Prince George.  The union, in its Elk Falls  application, has claimed that  mcve than 60 percent of the  eligible    workers    have signed  certification  Mr. and Mrs. G. Garriott and  daughter Robin were hiking recently in Capilano Canyon, and  met a family of raccoons. The  mother raccoon was badly mauling her offspring, which they  reported to nearby authorities.  Stanley Park Zoo authorities  kept one baby raccoon, and Robin is the proud owner of Bandit, the other. She takes the  coon wherever she goes, and  handles it on a dog leash.  It is just two months old, so  is bottle fed, and given fruit,  meat and vegetables.  The coon is. a fine pet, she  finds. The one problem she has  encountered is with the family  cat. Bandit isn't fond of it, and  shows it. .  Juniors  ppwere^aiCtiv&:  The annual report of Elphinstone Jr. Red Cross club of  which Philip Reeves is president, Pat Gooding, vice-president, Nora Hanula, secretary  and Marilyn Macey, treasurer,  revealed that money raising  projects during the year were a  penny drive, Christmas raffle  sports day, art and open house  concessions.  Other projects included a Save  the Children clothing drive, a  Korean visitor speak-in, a public health nurse talk'; on area  health problems, an art paint-in,  agreed to assist in an Indian  school project, supported a  Greek school and sent Karen  Alsager and Kim Inglis to a  workshop session at Parksville.  Elected representatives for  the year included Gloria Baker,  Arlene Johnson, Nora Hanula,  Bonnie Barnhardt, Barbara Kelly, Velma Stanley, Dorothy ��win  ney, Thelma Volen, Norman  Blatchford, Steven Macklam,  Susan Price, Susan Puchalski,  Esther Carey, Craig Chambel-  lin, Barbara McLean, Elliott  Trueman, Linda Yochlowitz,  Gary Wood, Delu Dunham, Carrie Gallier and Tom Godber.

AN ANNOUNCEMENT  This announcement appeared  perhaps not unexpectedly ��� at  the place mentioned: .Madeira  Park store is pleased to announce the.addition.to our staff  of Miss Helen .Bernice; Pickard.  ��� Joined our organization Sat.,  July 16 at 10:20.p.m. She is fair,  blue eyes and weighs 1 lbs., 9  oz. Dad and grandad have stood  up well.  with the new union. But spokesman for the International  Brotherhood of Pulp, Sulphite  and Paper Mill Workers, say  that many of the original signers have since revoked their  signatures and have now decided to stay with the International.  Meanwhile, labor organization  ^activity at Elk Falls has stepped up since the announcement  7of  the   Labor  Relations  Board  hearing  date.   The  rival   union  ;says   it   is   continuing   to   sign  ���more members, while the International,   on   the   other   hand,  - says it is continuing to receive  revocation slips from employees  who had originally signed with  the breakaway group.  In efforts to stem the flow of  'Canadian' union sentiments,  the International, recently rehired B.C. labor executive Pat  O'Neal who has visited Gibsons  and other mill  areas  involved.  Local labor scene observers  feel the main battle at the hearings will centre around the Elk  Falls   certification   application.  While the Canadian union has  some chance at Harmac, its  strength at Port Mellon and  Prince George is thought to be  net too strong.  r~v.sH___. i*" a now shot of Gib-sons  which the Ci.ijst. jSi'w�� will !>��  using in its publicity of the  area. It was taken some time  nyo by Ken Mellcff_.v    piloting;  hi-. <>.\n ph.no and Hon Crtiice,  cameraman. It is considered by  those who have seen it to be an  excellent picture of the harbbv'  and it is now part of the ">nef  to Ottawa on the development  of the harbor and shoreline.  Hospital expansion likely  St.   Mary's   Hospital   Society  Construction   committee   in  accordance with instructions given  by   the  board   of  trustees   has  investigated   the   need   for   additional extended care facilities  for  the   district served  by   St.  Mary's Hospital and had made  the  following  recommendation:  That approval be obtained  from the authorities for the  immediate construction of a  35  bed  extended  care  unit  in conjunction with the existing   St.   Mary's   Hospital  and that the same firm of   /  architects    which    planned  and supervised the construction  of St.  Mary's hospital  in 1963-64 be retained again  for the  new  project.  The   construction    committee  . brief prepared under the chairmanship   of  James E.   Parker  for the hospital board's approval  shows   that  the   new   hospital,  after operating for just one year  only, has already reached maximum  capacity.  Further   it   believes   that   population   growth  based on the 1962-65 growth will  reach 15,200 by 1971. It is now  slightly   under   12,000   with   an  actual   estimate   of   11,941  persons. With the growth, increased use of hospital facilities will  be required in view of present  total capacity.  The brief also maintains there  are residents oi the area in  other hospitals, mainly Vancouver, who should be hospitalized  in their own area, unless specialized treatment is required.  Net irc'.ufecl in the population  estimate are the 120 attending  the residential school in Sechelt  who must be considered in any  projected population estimate.  A further estimate of population growth is shown in the  B.C. Telephone company installations in the various areas.  The Port-Mellon-Gibsons expansion showed 941 in 1959 and  1781 in 1965; Sechelt exchange  570 in '59 to 971 in '65; Pender  Harbor, 249 in '59 to 414 in '65.  Total  installations  increased to  3166 in '65 from 1760 in '59. This  is expected to rise to 3,900 in  1970, according to B.C. Telephone company estimates.  School population which was  1,410 in 1959 is expected to reach  2,500 by 1970 based on a six  to seven percent annual increase.  Construction figures, leaving  aside major construction such  as would be done at Port Mellon projected from the 1966  figure of $2,700,000 should reach  $4,000,000 based on B.C. Hydro  Power Authority building permits ifor electrical installations.  High hospital occupancy rates  in 1965 were not expected until  1967 and 1968 and this the report reveals has strained the  hospital staff and facilities to  the utmost. The brief fears that  with a six percent annual increase in population the average occupancy   at  the   end   of  1968 will reach a figure which  will    seriously    overcrowd the  hospital, and will of necessity  enforce the refusal of admittance to patients needing care.  At this time the staff and plant  are taxed practically to the  limit and with the projection as  outlined, by mid-1968 will not  be able to handle would-be-patients.  The board of trustees of which  Ernest W. Booth, is chairman,  by letter to Hon. Eric Martin,  minister of health services and  hospitalization has endorsed the  recommendations of the committee asking approval in principle as soon as possible.  NAMED VICE-PRINCIPAL  At a special meeting of the  district school board July 14  Mr. A. Merling, principal of  Roberts Creek school was appointed viceiprincipal of Gibsons Elementary school. It was  also agreed that a replacement  for him at Roberts Creek be  sought through advertising.  Bus shelter OKd  Consent to construct a public  seat and shelter for bus stop  passengers was requested by  Vince Prewer and Marine Men's  Wear in Gibsons at Gibsons last  council meeting. This would  be at the Vancouver bound bus  stop.  Another item settled by council was the prohibiting of parking on Jack's lane at the  corner of Bal's block.  In view of conditions in the  harbor council decided to investigate the possibilities of  finding wharfinger to look after  harttor problems.  George Boser, Park road; E.  L. Butler, Hillcrest avenue and  Marion Nordby, Granthams who  sought applications for water  connections were advised that  council has no intention at present of extending water mains  beyond areas presently served.  Chnirman   Wes.   B.   Hodgson,  was   appointed   as   council   re  presentative for the school  board's community conference  to be held Dec. 3. One representative of the fire department  will go to the Fire Chief's convention at Kamloops. Councillor  MacKay moved that a motorized sickle bar be purchased to  use on Gibsons ditches and  wherever else required.  Mrs. George T. Smith complained of basement flooding  and Councillors James Drum-  mend and Fred Feeney moved  that she be advised the council  will attend to this problem by  trying to improve drainage on  Wyngaert road.  Councillor Drummond reporting on the airport operations  moved that council consider the  inclusion of $1,250 in the next  budget for the airport providing  Sechelt's council will agree_ to  provide a similar amount. This  a:rpori is under joint control  of Gibsons and Sechelt councils.  It's a 41 pounder! It was  caught early Sunday morning  on the mainland side of Gambier Island in the region of  Potlatch and Zorra Bays about  8:30 a.m. when Chris Gooding  of Thunder Bay, Jervis Inlet  (right) and Len Smeltzer, of  2795 E. 23rd., Vancouver (left)  passed over the spot where  half an hour earlier they felt  a strong bite. The battle to get  it" to the boat, a small power  cruiser, took three-quarters of  an hour. The fish was too large  to land by net. Gooding said  when he first saw the size of  the fish he was startled. The  picture was taken on the  George Hill marine float in 'Gibsons. It is now in Gooding's  deep freeze.

Unify in the Community gets things done  ���HlOTUttUUUVaEOTlOT^^^  Just for the record  To protect ratepayers of Gibsons tihe Coast News made a suggestion to Gibsons municipal council at its July 5 meeting that it  defer publication of its legal requirements for the $113,000 water  bylaw for a period of two weeks.  The suggestion was made because it would leave Gibsons  readers of the Coast News during the staff holiday period, without  any publication for two weeks.  Council however decided it could not wait and decided to place  publication of the legal notice wherever possible. Wi!t!h this the  Coast News at no time protested. It did protest the point that Gibsons readers would not, through the columns of their own paper,  get any legal notice of the proposed $113,000 bylaw. The editor is  stjill of the opinion that the delay of two weeks would not have  created any hardship in connection with the bylaw and would have  been fair to its ratepayers.  Any suggestion that council was amazed over the event or sat  through a tirade smacks of an inadequate mind1 gloating over a  situation utilized to satisfy a blatant ego. Hours before the meeting started the Coast News editor had conversations with Chairman  Hodgson and members of council to see what could be done about  holding over for two weeks the legal requirement for publication.  The editor tried to help his readers. He rates an E for effort at  least.  Something can be done?  Looking back over the minutes of Gibsons and District Centennial committee dated Feb. 22, 1966, one finds 12 representative citizens present from various organizations. Excerpts from those  minutes, published now might produce something towards formation of a committee to carry on from where this committee expired when it could not.produce a chairman.  The minutes stated. Tidewater Players would present a play in  March. A school sports day and various regular public activities  with a centennial theme were suggested. A Centennial road race  was mentioned Another idea was that organizations would donate  25 percent of proceeds from fund raising activities to be committed for a Centennial fund.  What happened? Well ��� actually nothing!  Is this to be the sum total of Gibsons and area Centennial activities? If it had not been for the activities of two young men, not  too long in this district, to tackle the chairmanship of the July 1  Celebration committee ��� this too might have become a memory of  past years.  Are we to let the federal Centennial celebration fall by the  wayside? We have a Centennial Queen worthy of taking part in  anything that can be devised for provincial or federal Centennial  purposes. Let's start from there and see what can be done, and  let's start soon!  "You'll probably get a medal for this, Hogan!"  THE  COAST NEWS  19 YEARS AGO  Mrs. Elsie Monteith, well  known goat breeder, was appointed judge at the Pacific  National Exhibition, Vancouver,  and at the Portland, Oregon,  exhibition.  James Sinclair, M.P., in Ottawa, reports the application of  Gibsons Landing Board of Trade  to have that community's name  changed to Gibsons has been  approved.  A new 10 ft. x 24 ft. swimming  float has been ordered by the  Women's Auxiliary of Granthams Landing Property Owners Association.  The new community hall being built by St. Vincent's Mission, and to be called the Marian Hall is now under construction.  Future guests of Trail's End  cottage will see the front door  graced with a knocker sent to  Birds help  In Washington state, entomologists are recruiting birds to  assist in the never ending battle against forest insects. On an  experimental plot, bird houses  have been placed to encourage  our fine feathered friends to set  up housekeeping in the forest.  This idea isn't entirely new,  German Foresters have been  experimenting with the use of  birds for several years. The success of this experiment seems  to depend on the appetites Of  the birds.  Dorothy by her sister, Mrs. E.  Harvey| The knocker came from  a bomb-demolished house in  Barclay Square.  A successful tea was held  July 11 at the home of Mrs. F.  D. Rice. The weather being in  a rather uncertain mood,, tea  was served on the verandah.  Affluence!  It was about a century ago  that a noted eastern newspaper  editor advised young men interested in finding a fortune to  head west. A recent news item  indicates that it is still sound  advice.  A Mr. George. Reeves, sales  executive for Rolls-Royce of  Canada, disclosed that the entire 1966 Canadian allotment of  these luxury cars had been taken up in the first half of the  year, and that there are now between 400 and 500 Rolls owners  in the country. "These owners,"  he added, "include business and  professional people in every  principal city ��� plus a number  of Prairie farmers, several oilfield people and a Vancouver  tugboat operator."  Any area tnat gets special  mention from a Rolls-Royce  salesman should rate pretty  high with those starting out to  find a fortune. ��� C.J.H.  Your printing can be serviced  at the only print shop this side  of Jervis Inlet ��� the Coast  News plant. Always open to  visitors.  Inlets galore lure trippers in upcoast venture  K there is an observation  which can be made without dispute concerning the shoreline  north country it would be that  it is absorbing a considerable  amount of freight. Northland  Prince sailed from its Vancouver dock carrying a heavy load,  much of which was for new construction. This freight was for  some dozen points along the  mainland coast as far as Stewart at the top end of Portland  Canal, a short walk from the  Alaskan border.  A holidaying Coast News editor, and to many people who  phone the Coast News, the lady  who answers thhe telephone, accompanying him, found that the  first indication of what life  aboard the Northland Prince  was like was a 10 p.m. smorgasbord. At the same time one's  place at meal tables was  allotted with the indication that  we were on first sitting at 8, 12  and 5 o'clock meals and the  nightly 10 p.m. snack. This provided a good break for deck  chairs vacated by those on second sittings.  First port of call was Alert  Bay, a clean looking, thriving  community, where passengers  boarded along with their car,  adding to the already 25 cars  in holds and on deck. Breakfast  gave one a choice of a light or  hearty breakfast including sausage with eggs and bacon. One  lad aboard for the entire trip  from Vancouver to Stewart and  back survived the trip on a diet  which involved a plateful of  sausage whenever available.  Bella Coola hove in sight at 9  a.m., two hours past scheduledbe   our   destination  at   8  a.m.  arrival. Heavy morning fog  showed signs of breaking occasionally but it remained firm  until noon when it rapidly cleared off and provided a sunny afternoon. The schedule called for  docking at Ocean Falls at 1  a.m. but when the editor and  his helpmeet appeared for  breakfast, hatches were being  closed at 8 a.m. which meant  that the appointed arrival at  Kitimat set for 2 p.m. did not  occur until 7:30 in the evening.  Here a four hour stay was announced so the numerous passengers aboard traipsed ashore  to see what they could of the  Kitimat aluminum plant and  town.  Some taxied to the town four  miles distant while others  stretched their legs by walking  a couple of miles to get an outside view of the plant and surroundings. It is a massTve project, set out at the end of a  lengthy inlet. As the Northland  Prince sailed in a foreign  freighter pulled away from the  plant dock and headed down the  inlet to open sea.  Quite a number of passengers  at various times rested in the  main lounge while the ship was  in port and watched the efficient  manner in which freight was  taken from the holds and deposited on the dock to be lifted  away by fork trucks which skittered about like mosquitoes with  never a collision ��� a marvel of  manoeuvre.  Leaving Kitimat close to midnight, a glance at the schedule  revealed Prince Rupert was to  next morning. However while  some time had been made up  passengers were not able to get  ashore until the vessel docked  about noon.  After having been warned that  in Prince Rupert when it was  not raining it was going to rain  our pleasure at walking on dry  pavement (quite dry, too) was  regarded as a special arrangement by the chamber of commerce.  To cap the meteorological situation, as we walked towards  one old timer of the city his  comment to us was, "You're  lucky ��� it isn't raining!" Later  walking along the main street  we were hailed by name. A feminine voice was" calling so we  turned about to see a Gibsonite,  Mrs. Gunnar Madsen of Sargent  Road. Naturally chit-chat followed and she informed us she  anticipated visiting Vancouver  Island in a few weeks time. The  Madsens left Gibsons in the  spring.  Seeking something by which  to remember Prince Rupert we  visited the museum and what  a display of museum pieces  were laid out for public inspection. There was practically ev-  erything and anything one would  expect to discover in a well-  kept museum, all the way from  usual artifacts to displays of  varied mineral samples, local  relics and many items of definite historical interest and  value.  After a six hour stay at Prince  Rupert the Northland Prince  moved out to open water, towards   Alice   Arm   which   was  reached at 7 a.m. instead of the  previous midnight. This gave us  daylight for the trip down Alice  Arm into Portland Canal and  up to Stewart which we reached  at 3:30 that afternoon. This,  the northern tip of the trip, gave  passengers a chance to walk  over a dusty road to Hyder,  about one mile distant, in'Alaska. Reaching there we were  greeted at the first of the four  buildings left occupied in what  was once a thriving town. Postcards on sale at the store must  be years old. The store was run  by an official of the United  States of America, a woman  customs officer, who announced that fact as she greeted us  officially on the stoop in front  of her curio store.  All that remained of the town  was a series of pilings on which  buildings of the town had been  constructed. Youngsters with  one of the families aboard explored a tumlble-down building  and came forth with a 1926 copy  of the Christian Science Monitor, a Vancouver Province of  the same year and a couple of  Mooseheart lodge magazines.  These publications were passed  to the Coast News editor who  found the handling of news in  those days was a great deal  more direct and factual than  today's man bites dog type of  news.  Leaving Stewart in daylight,  the trip home started with fewer stops enroute than on the  trip up. Prince Rupert, Bute-  dale, Ocean Falls, Bella Coola  N.

Owing to the heavy load of  freight taken up and a rather  long stop at Namu to take on a  load of fresh caught fish we arrived in Vancouver at about 2  a.m. Tuesday morning instead  of the regular time of 6 p.m.  Monday evening As we were  passing Powell River, home-  bound, the sky over Vancouver really showed up black and  the conclusion all arrived at was  that Vancouver must be getting  quite a rain.  On reaching Gibsons Dr.  Mylechreest took charge of the  damaged arm. It is now slowly  returning to normal.  RESCUE CLASSES  Classes in rescue and resuscitation sponsored by the St.  John's Safe-a-life program were  given recently by Mr. Cliff  Mahlman for. Girl Guides and  their leaders in both Sechelt and  Gibsons. Mr. Mahlman was fortunate in being able to borrow  a life-size model constructed by  a Japanese firm especially for  practise and demonstration of  the latest resuscitation methods.  Some 60 girls took advantage  of the refresher course  THE FOUND DEPARTMENT  At the Coast News office are  two pink parasols found on  School road, a boy's blue and  red jacket, found near the Twilight theatre and a young boy's  ouilted black jacket found in  Kinsmen Park, July 1 by memibers of the Kinette club.

Modern materials and new  techniques have made it possible for the average home owner to propagate some of he  most ornamental deciduous  shrubs from summer cuttings.  One of the easiest ways is by  the covered wagon method, a  technique involving the use of a  propagating pase, covered with  polyethylene plastic, which, because of the framing used,  bears a resemblance to this wagon of bygone days.  *       *       *  To make this structure, get a  box or a flat about 20 inches  long, 14 inches wide and 4 inches deep. Fill the box to within  half an inch of the rim with a  mixture of equal parts sand and  peat moss.  Firm  the  medium  into   the   ibox   with   a   tamper  made    from a block of wood.  Now get some willow twigs, thin  bamboos or heavy gauge wire.  Bend them like hoops and insert  the ends in the inside of the flat  making a framework similar to  that of a covered wagon. Have  at hand some sheets of polyethylene or a number of laundry or  fruit bags made from this material,   to  be   attached  to  the  frame after the  cuttings  have  been inserted.  visiting friends who have hed-  . ges of alpine currant, Amur privet, highbush cranberry, arctic  willow or spirea, you could ask  them for cuttings since they  should be trimming their hedge  soon. Similarly, if you want deciduous shrubs, get in touch  with someone who has sjjirea,  honeysuckle, variegated elder,  snowlberry, Somerset daphne,  cotoneaster, forsythia, hydrangea, mock-orange, tamarix or  weigela growing in their garden. These are all easy to root  if taken in July.  *       *       *  Equip yourself with a pair of  pruning shears, some labels,  twine or plastic wire and a polyethylene bag. Select leafy stems  produced this year that snap  easily, for, this is the wood that  is most likely to take root. Cut  twigs 10 indhes to a foot long,  which is much larger than your  cuttings will be. Tie them in  bundles, affix a label to each  separate kind of twig clipping  and then place tlhem in the polyethylene bag. The cuttings will  not wilt in this bag and you can  safely leave them for several  hours until you are ready to  make the cuttings.  ping the ends in a mild rooting  compound. There are many  kinds of these root inducing hormones on the market. They are  available in powder and liquid  forms and all of them make  rooting faster.  Next insert the cuttings two to  three inches deep in the medium  and space them one inch apart  in the box, in rows two to three  inches wide according to their  size and substance. A flat with  the dimensions given will hold  from 75 to 100 cuttings. When  you have inserted all your cuttings water them well from  above with a fine rose watering  can. This will set them firmly in  the medium. Now attach the  polyethylene to the willow or  other framework toy means of  tacks or pegs and arrange the  whole frame so that it looks  like a covered wagon. Make  sure it is  airtight, but at one  (By A. R. BUCKLEY,  Plant Research Institute,  Ottawa.)  end allow for it to be opened so  that you may push a watering  can spout through.  Leave the frame in a sunny  place but keep it shaded by  means of a cloth during the hottest part of the day. It should  not need watering for a week or  10 days, but it's a good plan to  wet the leaves occasionally as  they dry. You may need to do  this every four or five days.  In about three weeks test the  cuttings by pulling one out to  see if it has formed roots. Some  kinds root faster than others.  When they are rooted, plant the  cuttings in the garden in some  spot such as a corner of the veg  etable area, and sprinkle them  daily from above with a fine  rose watering can until they no  longer wilt. Leave the cuttings  in the nursery until next spring,  when they may be planted outdoors or until the following fall.  -ifwm i~>��~w~��.' _-~��<~��^_��><-i__n  *        *  *  Until the end of July is a  good time to take greenwood  cuttings. Of course, you must  have a source of material. If it  is a hedge you need and you are  To prepare the cuttings select  the semisoft tip wood and make  a slanting cut just 'below a node  or the point from which a leaf  or leaves arise.

DECKER  BAL BLOCK ��� GIBSONS  WEDNESDAY & SATURDAY  FOR APPOINTMENTS���886-2166  Miss Nancy Leslie, currently  in Japan as an exchange student from U.B.C. continues to  write of her experiences in this  fascinating country.  After spending a night in the  small town of Ichikawa, she  visited the town of Kujiranami,  situated on the west coast of  Japan, overlooking the Sea of  Japan. Here the climate and  growth resemble the jungles of  Africa with its many shades of  greens. Even the wild birds and  insects give one the impression  of jungle environment.  Nancy writes of her experience catching trout. The fishing  rods are made of bamboo and  the bait is a soft doughy paste  wrapped around the hook. After  catching the trout, it is customary to cook it over hot coals  and then eat it, complete with  head and scales.  In the country, women can  be seen pulling heavy carts  down the streets, plowing by  hand in the rice fields, working  on road construction, or as  barbers. Few men become barbers.  Many women still wear the  kimono and wooden shoes, especially   the   older   generation.  Our twilight amazes  Five Japanese students from  Keio University in Tokyo arrived in Gibsons July 8. They  were guests of Mrs. M. E. Leslie, whose daughter Nancy is a  summer exchange student to Japan  A conducted tour through the  Canadian Forest Products mill  at Port Mellon, a boat trip  around Keats and surrounding  islands and a beach tour to  watch sport fishing were on the  agenda.  During a visit to the municipal hall in Sechelt the group  was introduced to Council Chairman Mrs. Christine Johnston,  and a tour was made of the Indian village.  Selection of students was  made through written examinations in English composition, a  knowledge of Canadian culture'  and on the geography of Canada, with special emphasis on  B.C.  There are 100 universities, including colleges, in Tokyo. The  city has a population of 11 million.  Keio University has an enrollment of 20,000 students and  Tokyo University has 14,000.  Fees for a year's tuition in a  Tokyo university is $40 a year.  The yearly tuition at UBC is  $500 and last year it had an enrollment of 16,000.  Since the end of the Second  World War, Japan has become  increasingly westernized in everyday living. The younger generation, instead of sleeping on  mats, use beds and mattresses,  and dress style are western.  American movies are well attended in Japan. Sound of Mu-  of the movies the students saw  sic and Dr. Zhivag0 were some  before leaving Japan.  A TV antenna in Tokyo is  higher than the Eiffel Tower.  The residents tune in to United  States programs and are as familiar with Batman and Ed Sullivan as are North Americans.  Fish is a staple in their diet,  as it is plentiful and inexpensive. Lobster is a favorite, and  is prepared in many appetizing  ways."  A new town of Tama is being  built outside Tokyo, and by 1973  is expected to house 300,000.  The town will be linked to Tokyo by an expressway and three  rapid transit systems. A subway will lead directly to the  basement of a large department  store.  The students were amazed at  the long period of twilight, as in  Japan there is no twilight. Flowers and flower arranging are of  great interest to Japanese women. The most popular sport  in Japan is 'baseball, tennis, soccer, and more recently football.  Tokyo airport is the second  largest in the world. A jet plane  leaves every three minutes from  the airport. The time difference  is 12 hours.  The students made good use  of their cameras. One camera  was fitted with film on which 72  pictures could be taken.  The students are attending a  seminar at UBC. On weekends  trips to various points of interest will be taken, including a  tour of Victoria. At the close of  the seminar, August 19, a bus  trip is planned for Kelowna,  Jasper, Banff and some American cities.  When invited to a home for tea,  one must not drink the tea until the hostess has asked you  three times to drink up. This  ceremony may take up to 45  minutes.  Returning to Tokyo by express train was quite an experience. The three-tier berths  are very narrow, but compact.  When they arrived a welcoming party met them and they  were entertained at one of the  restaurants in the Shibuya District in Tokyo.  For two nights several students, including ' Nancy's hostess, Miyako, stayed at a youth  hostel where regulations included lights out at 10 p.m. and up  at 6 a.m. with gentle reminder  for all over the intercom. It is  here that Nancy met a group  of university students who were  majoring in gymnastics. The  students showed them around  the 1964 Olympic Stadium,  taught the visitors Japanese,  folk dancing and games. After  visiting a Junior High school,  the students returned to Keio  University, where an orientation program was presented.  These lectures included history  of Keio University, economics,  politics, diplomatic history and  agriculture.  Their next visit was to the  National Government building,  with its beautiful architectural  decorations, then on to the 1964  Olympic indoor swimming pool.  A special treat was a tour of  the N.H.K. TV and radio station where colored television  shows wore taped and released.  The next stop was a visit to  the Toshibo Electric Factory,  where  one  can  see mass pro-  Big day at the Bay  All roads led to Cooper's  Green, Redrooffs last Saturday,  where crowds thronged to celebrate British Columbia's centennial at the Country Fair.  Celebrations started at dawn  with a fishing derby arranged  ,by Frank Jorgensen with the  assistance of Suerre Solsberg.  Winners were R. G. Hawes  (heaviest salmon), G. D. MacDonald (2nd heaviest salmon),  Gordon Crooks (largest salmon  under 14 class) and David Ryan  (2nd largest). Unclaimed so far  is a prize for a hidden weight  salmon  (Ticket No.  28).  The fair was opened by Mrs.  Sam Dawe wearing a becoming  period dress and sunbonnet. It  was Mrs. A. A. Franch's lucky  day for she won the planter  designed by Mrs. Pete Jorgensen and the cake by guessing  its weight. Winner of a set of  glasses was Mrs. De la Salle,  a guest of the Jack Temples.  One of the attractions most  popular with the children was  Cariboo Sam's Gold Rush, featuring Mrs. Doug Foley. The  children who struck gold were  Mary    Gray,    Denise    Frigon,  duction of television sets, with  each person doing one specific  job on each TV.  The following day they visited  the train control centre, they  saw how the New Tokaido line  was built. This new line travels  between Tokyo and Osaka at  speds of 120 mph and is capable  of carrying 100,000 passengers  per day. With over 13,080 lines  in Japan, the train control centres must pinpoint each train  and mark its position on an elec-  machine.  At the Tokyo Metropolitan Office, they were given an interview with the Mayor of Tokyo,  who than presented them with  a medal for UBC from the  Tokyo Government. During their  visit to the Mitsukoshi department store, the largest in Japan, they saw a kimono show,  including bridal costumes complete with hair pieces.  The theatres usually have  three showings per day, but even  then it is difficult to get seats.  The students saw South Pacific  and Dr. Zhivago, and also a  Kabuki play, which is live  drama depicting the story of  the ancient peoples of Japan.  Only men perform in these  plays, often taking the part of  women as well.  The art of wood block printing was most interesting, but  it took lots of patience as it  can take approximately two  weeks to cut the design in a  piece of wood. If the design is  to be colored, each color must  have its own specific block of  wood.  Distinct traces of Chinese influence in Japan may be readily  recognized in much the pottery,  jewelry  cases  and  clothing.

Gloria Connor sold popcern,  while many visitors went home  happy with one of Canon  Greene's cartoons depicting life  and adventures around Halfmoon Bay.

They are  grateful to Mr. Jim Cooper for  the use of the resort grounds  and facilities and to all those  who transported tables and  benches, who sent in donations  of cash, home baking, rummage, etc. and to the Recreation Comission for co-operation  in organizing the sports program.

When a plant is known by a  variety of names, there's  bound to be confusion. Weeds  are no exception.  Many farmers are familiar  with certain weeds on their  own land and refer to them by  colloquial names that may have  only regional usage, explains  K. F. Best, of CDA's Swift Current, Sask., experimental farm.  "This often hinders communi  caton between farmer and ex-  tenson  service personnel."  Some weeds are known by  several names, Mr. Best says.  Stinkweed for example, is  known in varying areas as bastard-cress,     pennycress,      fan-  Why  The  Christian  Science  Monitor  recommends  yon read  your local  newspaper  Your local newspaper Js a wide-range  newspaper with many features.

The scientific  name is Thlaspi arvense.  Researchers at the Swift Current farm have come to the  rescue with a publication titled  Common Names of Weeds of  Canada that is designed to help  standardize weed identification.  The Swift Current publication  lists alphabetically many of the  common names that have been  used for weeds in Canada.  Where a. name is no longer  in general use or may be restricted to a limited region, the  most popular name is indicated  along with the scientific name.  Thus a farmer wishing to inquire about control of a plant  which he knows as Johnny-go-  to-bed-at-noon, on checking the  list will find that he is referring to goat's-beard, or to use  the scientific name, Tragopogon  dubius,   Mr.   Best  explains.  A copy of the publication may  be obtained from the experimental farm at Swift Current.  Letters fo editor  Editor: The tree planting ceremony at Elphinstone School recently, brought to mind a  similar situation about 40 years  ago when we students were  presented with fir seedlings.  These trees were also meant to  be a symbol of prosperity,  growth and opportunity ahead.  As many survived our clumsy  planting as did our opportunities in the years following.  Planting of the tree, to quote  Mr. Potter "marks our entry  into the second century of B.C.  development." A suitable and  more lasting memorial of the  occasion should have been free  passes for the students so that  they could attend special school  programs across the Sound.  Very little evidence of an  abundant and dynamic society  are available in this area. It  is ironical that Mrs. Dawson,  while basking in the vote catching publicity of escorting Hon.

Since the official opening of  Elphinstone Pioneer Museum on  May 21, marked development  was indeed most obvious by the  number of exhibits of pioneer  distinction to the many who  visited the museum July 1.  During the past two weeks,  some of the exhibits offered are  as follows: The first kerosene  lamp used by the pioneer Gibson  family, brought west from Ontario by Mrs. George Gibson sr.  in 1886; an Edison phonograph  donated by Robert Barnes, purchased by his grandparents in  1909, later passed along to his  parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. Barnes  of Gibsons; chimney bricks from  the one time brick plant at Anvil Island, Howe Sound, donated  by Bud Fisher; Japanese commercial fish net floats of green  colored glass which by way of  the Japanese Current found  their way to the west coast of  Vancouver Island. These were  donated by Walter Nygren.  During the past week, village  council kindly donated their  first office desk which has a  roll rib front, and used for many  years in their old premises.

Pending  Seedling bun  U.B.C.    Research    Forester,  Jack  Walters,   is   tackling  the  impossible     in     experimenting  with  the  growing  of seedlings  in plastic foam buns oi definite  molded size. These buns contain  a correct mixture of plant nutrients  and a seed is inserted  into  each  bun  developing  into  a seedling in the mist-irrigated  lath greenhouse at the UBS research forest. When they develop   as   seedlings   they  will  be  transplanted in the buns which  will  eventually  disintegrate   allowing the tree to grow in its  new home.  It is expected that a planting  gun will be used to place the  seedlings in the ground faster  than by hand methods. It is hoped that the bun planting method  will prove to be superior,  not  only for possible mechanization  but   also   for   reduced   nursery  cost,    undisturbed   lifting   and  planting  and  other   aspects   of  the   complete   control   of   the  seedling growing medium.  Wharf tender  Greenlees Piledriving Company Limited of Vancouver has  been awarded a $60,943 contract  for wharf and float renewal at  Gambier Harbor, Public Works  Minister George J. Mcllraith  has announced.  The successful tender was the  lowest of four opened on June  29, the high bid being $67,818.  Work will consist of renewing  the wharf and floats with a timber-concrete deck wharf 12 by  297 feet and with a 40-by-53-_oot  wharfhead. A small shed will be  erected on the wharf and a pontoon float, 14 feet by 100 feet,  will be built.  Plans and specifications were  prepared by the District Engineer at Vancouver for the federal Department of Public Works.  Work is to be completed in five  months.  _NL_-_WC_Pwt_V  Voun  Where was Port La Joie?  This was the early name of  Charlottetown, capital of Prince  Edward Island. The name was  retained   until   the   island   fell  into  British  hands   during  the  Seven Years' War. Then it was  changed to honor Queen Charlotte,  the  wife of George III.  The site of Charlottetown had  been   a  French   fortified   post  for   a   few   years   before  1720  when a party of 300 colonists  under Robert David Gotteville  arrived. They presumably gave  it the  name  of  Port La Joie  to   express  their   joy   at   safe  arrival.  What is the highest peak in  the Canadian Rockies?  Mount Robson,  on the continental  divide  at about  53  degrees     north    latitude,  is  the  highest  peak  in  the  Canadian  Rocky Mountains. It has an altitude of 12,972 feet. The C.N.R.  main line passes  close  to  the  mountain.      The   . surrounding  Mount   Robson   National   Park  is  named after  the  Mountain,  but the origin of the name is  in doubt.

Educated at Edinburgh Academy and at Lausanne University,  he   was   an   art   dealer  before  entering   the    theatrical    field.  Anderson's first production was  The Greenwich Village Follies,  presented in New York in 1919.  From  then  until  his   death  in  New York in 1954 he was responsible  for hundreds of productions of a lighter character  ��� musical comedies, miniature  revues, masques, pageants and  films ��� for the New York and  London   stages.   His   final  production,   John   Murray  Anderson's Almanac, was running on  Broadway  at  the   time   of  his  death.  What was Ontario's first  standard-gauge  railway?  The  Bytown     and     Prescott  Railway,  opened for  traffic in  1854.  Prior to   that   time   railways in Canada West (Ontario)  used   the   old   narrow   gauge.  The Bytown and  Prescott had  been incorporated in  1850  and  the first sod was turned in By-  town (Ottawa) in October 1851.  Although    the     roadbed    was  ready,   the   financial   condition  of  the   company   did   not  provide  rails  until they  were  secured from a Welsh foundry in  1853 in exchange for mortgage  bonds.  In 1855 Ottawa was substituted for Bytown in the name and  in the year of Confederation,  when the line was taken over  by the bondholders, it was  again renamed, becoming the  St. Lawrence and Ottawa Railway. In 1884 it was leased to  the Canadian Pacific Railway  and has since been operated  by that company.

SAM FLADAGER,  THRIFTEE DRESS SHOP  Marine Drive, Gibsons BBG now top authority in control of nation's airwaves  By  JACK DAVIS,  M.P.  Coast-Capilano Constituency  The government's long awaited White Paper on Broadcasting  has now been tabled in the house  of commons. In 14 short, well-  reasoned pages it outlines a  policy which should be acceptable to most Canadians.  One thing the White Paper  does, and does without qualification, is to assert the authority of the Board of Broadcast  Governors. It clears up, at long  last, the relationship between  the BBG and the Canadian  Broadcasting Corporation. The  BBG, from now on, will have  the final say as to the interpretation of policy and the economic dimensions of broadcasting in  this country.  When the Diefenbaker government set up the BBG in 1958,  I John Hind-Smit-I  Refrigeration  PORT MELLON  TO  PENDER   HARBOUR  Phone 886-2231  from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  Res.  886-9949  there were vague references to  it performing the role of referee in the game of boadcasting  in Canada. But the Diefenbaker  government and the BBG were  both new to their jobs. The latter was also up. against the determined and well-entrenched  management of the CBC. As a  result Canada's government-  owned broadcasting corporation  was able to ignore and ultimately nullify many of the responsibilities which the Board of  Broadcast Governors was originally intended to discharge.  The new*White Paper changes  all that. It clearly identifies  the Board of Broadcast Governors as the top authority in  the country. The board is to  look after broadcasting as a  whole. It is to deal with the public sector, the CBC, as well as  the private  sector.  It will  be  able to call the CBC on;the mat  in the same way as it now deals  with GTV. It can demand answers from the management of  the CBC the same way as it  does from the private operators.  The granting of licences, the  quality of programs and the  subject of Canadian content also  will be dealt with by the.BBG.  Broadcasting, in other words,  will come under a single umbrella and the Crown-owned  CBC will have to toe the line  much as private enterprise  does.  'Gone, too, is the idea of a  single broadcasting czar. This  concept, as you may remember,  was advocated by the recent  Fowler commission. But the  government, in expressing its  intentions in the White Paper,  has refused to place too much  authority in the hands of a sin  gle individual. It has ignored  Mr. Fowler's idea that the  chairman of the BBG and the  chief executive of the CBC  should be one and the same person. It, in other words, has refused to make the CBC the  referee as well as the odds-on  team in the game of broadcasting in Canada.  There are numerous other  recommendations in the White  Paper. One lifts the freeze on  the establishment of new TV  outlets. More. TV stations will  therefore be 'milt in a relatively short time. So enthusiastic  has the response been it is likely that a third network could  get  underway  in  this   country.  Cable television also came in  for its share of attention. Up until now all that CATV companies  had to do was to get a licence  from the federal departmen of  transport. In future they will  have to go to the BBG. There  they will be up against a policy  stipulation as to foreign ownership and control. The Famous  Players corporation of the United States, for instance, will be  unable to forge a major cable  TV network from coast to coast  in Canada. It will have to give  Canadians a major say in its  ' operations. Also, it will have to  observe the BBG's regulations  as to the use of Canadian talent and Canadian produced programs.  I could go on. I could refer  to the use of TV for educational purposes. I could refer to the  organization of the CBC itself.  But suffice it to say that the  White Paper is a blue-print embracing policy recommendations  which will shortly become law.  Coast News, July 28, 1966.       9  By the spring of 1967 the BBG  will be in the driver's seat insofar as broadcasting is concerned Meanwbile Canada's radio  and TV industry will be helping  parliament to frame a new set  of ground rules. Viewers and  listeners in this country, benefitting from this advice, will be  better served than ever before.

PRESS  HEALTH TIPS  FROM THE CANADIAN  MEDICAL ASSOCIATION  Moderation in food intake is  of prime importance, the Canadian Medical Association asserts.  Basically, one should follow  Canada's Food Guide, which  stresses a daily choice from  five groups of food: milk, two to  four cups; fruit, two servings;  vegetables, one potato and one  yellow   or   green;   cereal,   one  PARKINSON'S  HEATING Ltd  Sssoj  Gibsons  ESSO OIL FURNACE  NO DOWN PAYMENT - BANK INTEREST  TEN YEARS TO PAY  COMPLETE I l\i: OF APPLIANCES  FOR FREE ESTIMATE ��� Call 886-2728  serving of whole cereal and  bread with butter; and protein,  one serving of meat, poultry or  fish, including liver occasionally. As a substitute, and in addition to the latter group, eggs,  cheese, dried peas or beans  should be utilized.  If this outline is followed daily  and additional Vitamin D (400  units) is taken by growing children and expectant mothers,  there should be no problem of  under- or over-nutrition in our  population.  However, many live to eat,  rather than eat to live, and intake of calories is far in excess  of our rather sedentary requirements. An excellent way of combatting this is the exercise of  pushing one's chair firmly away  from the table, and the exercise  of will power to avoid snacks.  Conversely, some of us who  snack frequently or drink an excess of milk or fruit juice, spoil  our appetite and do not attain a  balanced diet.  A person might find help in  controlling his will power iby  familiarizing himself with the  number of health hazards that  are associated with chronic  obesity.  The C.M.-A recommends that  dietary training should begin in  infancy and include both mother  and child It is quite common to  see a young mother competing  with her friends in an effort to  see how much food she can  boast of giving her child, and  this could have two opposite ef-  IMPORTANT NOTICE  to everyone born in  You should apply for your  old age security pension  immediately  If you do so you will receive your first payment in January, 19 67  when Old Age Security becomes available to persons who  have reached the age of 68.

Clowhom  trip by  pensioners  An outing for local OAPs  planned for last Sunday by the  Sunshine Coast Lions Club was  almost washed out by heavy  morning thunder storms, but 25  members of Branch 96 turned  up at Porpoise Bay in raincoats and umbrellas ready for  the trip.  After a 21 mile boat trip up  Sechelt Inlet and Salmon Arm,  they arrived smiling at the staff  house at Clowhom where the  Lions had hot coffee ready.  There followed a most interesting tour over the generating station with guide Jack Laidlaw of  the B.C. Hydro. The visitors  saw the hydraulic turbine, a  40,000 hp. machine which can  generate enough power in one  hour to electrify 30 houses for  2Vz years. The 120 ton crane  which cost $125,000 and is an  essential piece of equipment has  so far only had to be used once.  The visitors were given a demonstration of the controls being  taken over and operated from  Vancouver.  The more energetic members  of the party climbed up to the  dam, while others sat around  and sang to music supplied by  Henb Rudolph and Vic Waters.  The Lions served an excellent  lunch of barbecued salmon and  potatoes, salad with hot rolls,  followed by coffee and cakes.  The trip was sponsored by the  Lions club with theh co-operation of B.C. Hydro. Transportation was donated by the M & W  Logging boat Summer Tan, and  Sechelt Timber Products boat  Black Hawk I. May's Boat Rentals boats and the Porpoise Bay  Water Taxi were also available  for use but were not needed be*  cause the unfavorable morning  weather had discouraged many  old folk who had looked forward  to attending.  Mr. H. A. Hill, president of  Branch 96, in expressing appreciation to the Lions, thanked  them for everything they had  done to make such a wonderful  outing available. He said it was  too wonderful for words.  Young and old gathered at  Wilson Creek hall when the  Sechelt OAPO met last Wednesday. Memibers were entertained by the Sunshine Singers who  gave a sweet and harmonious  rendition of Doh Re Mi and  Dear Land of Home.  This group, composed of May  Queen Heather Hall who wore  her royal robes, Debbie Hall,  Lani Schroeder and Gloria Sheridan, is doing excellent work  under their leader, Mrs. Dorothy Stockwell and their accompanist, Mrs. Hazel Evans.  Ligzy Martinez played several accordion solos with skill,  and Heather and Debbie Hall  did a competent demonstration  of piano solos and duets. Mrs.  Hall, who introduced the entertainers, presented bouquets to  two of the oldest members at  the meeting.  Wins award  Deborah Dockar and Fran  Volen, senior members of 1st  Gibsons Guide Company have  returned from a week's camp  at Sooke, Vancouver Island,  with girls from Victoria Guide  companies. There were 21 girls  altogether, but only one or two  had previous camping experience, so Gibsons .girls were  much appreciated.  The campsite, part.of the Victoria Guide Jubilee Camp is a  large flat grassed area. Deborah and Fran described it as  soft camping without the chal-.  lenge to which they are accustomed on the Sunshine Coast.  The weather was good, the  girls were fun, the swimming  hole in the creek provided a  cool dip even if tt wasn't big  enough to really swim in, hikes  were arranged to the beach five  miles away for the patrol leaders and everyone enjoyed themselves. Deborah was awarded  the camp prize for the most experienced camper. Before camp  Fran and Deborah spent several  days on the Island and sightseeing in Victoria.  Progress at park  Past matron   Guides Quebec bound  At a recent meeting of Gibsons and Rural Centennial committee, a progress report was  given.  Co-operation in tho development of Brothers Memorial  Park is the Centennial project  of the group. It accepted responsibility for levelling, grading,  and providing lime, fertilizer  and grass seed for the park  grounds.. All except seeding has  been accomplished, and it hoped to have this completed by  fall.  The Kiwanis club, provincial  parks department and Centennial committee are responsible  for various phases in the park  development.  When the grounds are completed, a cairn will be built to  house a plaque of dedication to  the Jackson Brothers of Wilson  Creek, who donated the property for park purposes. The park,  located on Park Road, consists  of 10 acres, with six acres now  under development.  The committee has actively  participated in various centennial projects. It assisted in  staging the Kitsilano Boys band  concert, contributed $100 to the  July 1 celebrations, and is now  assisting with the Fall Fair, to  be held in August.

No credit.  pours tea  Once again the beautiful gardens of Mr. and) Mrs. Robert  Cumming, on Beach Avenue,  were open to the public on July  9 when the OES held its annual  tea and sale. The lawns and  flowers were especially lovely  after days of clouds and showers and they sparkled cleanly  in the hot sun. Added to the  beauty of growing plants were  the flower arrangements on  each talble and the gorgeous  bowl on the head table, done  by Mrs. R. J. Eades.  The tea was opened by Mrs.  W. Kirkham, past WGM, of  Vancouver, and" was presided  over by Worthy Matron Mrs. A.  Aitchison.  Tea was poured by past matrons of the order, and officers  served.  The various attractive stalls  were well patronized. Members  of Job's Daughters were on  hand to mind the young fry,  leaving mothers free to shop  and visit at the tea tables.  The door prize was won by  Mrs. R. Kennett, and the doll  by. Mrs. Jen Monrufet. Mrs.  Hutchins guessed the cookie  weight correctly.  The four food hampers raffled were won by Mrs. Stacey,  Mrs. A. Davis, Mrs. R. Kennett  and Mrs. M. MacLeod.  The successful affair was  convened by Mrs. R. Quigley.  A handsome bedspread, crocheted by Mrs.Aitchison, will  be raffled at the fall bazaar of  the OES. Tickets are available  now.  As one group of young people  returns from an exchange trip  to Saskatchewan, another is  preparing to leave for eastern  Canada. Heritage Camps for  Girl Guides are being held this  year in seven provinces, B.C.,  Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick, Quebec  and Newfoundland.  Sandra Ward, daughter of Mr.  and Mrs. Mark Ward of Gibsons  leaves on Tuesday with seven  other B.C. Guides for. a two  week camp in Quebec. There  will be 64 Guides and Rangers  from across Canada and the  eastern Arctic attending camp  at Lac Adair, St. Hippolyte, in  the Laurentians, 12 miles north  of St. Jerome. It comprises 500  acres of woodland and two  la'kes. For the weekend prior  to camp the .girls will be billeted with families in Montreal.  The theme of this year's Heritage Camps will again be Canada's history, leading up to the  big international camp planned  for Centennial year. The Canadian Centennial Commission will  contribute to the travel expenses from their Youth Travel  grant, and both the local district and Sunshine Coast division of the Girl Guides have  also helped.  Sandra is the only Elphinstone  District Ranger. The girls tried  to start a Ranger Crew on their  pwn but without adult leadership  it was difficult to maintain.  Gradually the senior Guides  drifted   apart.  Sandra has been busy giving  service to the community. She  has been a regular volunteer at  St. Mary's Hospital helping to  carry trays, and feed patients  unable to help themselves and  been especially valuable in the  children's ward. She has also  helped with the Gibsons Guide  Company and will go with them  to camp when she returns from  Quebec.  Sandra who is going to Quebec as a representative of this  area has received a letter of  good wishes from Chairman  Wes Hodgson of village council.  Among the- souvenirs she is taking to exchange are dogwood  and driftwood pins which she  has made herself and a set of  personalized cards each with <_  B.C. motif presented by Ed  Burritt on behalf of the Sunshine  Coast Arts Council.
