Sea Cavalcade needs help!  Gibsons Sea Cavalcade ��� your Sea Cavalcade ���  Where does it go from here? Has it,,become too big for  Gibsons? \  This year's committee spent more time raising money to put on the Cavaicade than they did in actually organizing the event. With all this effort, they still came  about $1,700 short of paying all the bills.  Steps are now being taken to raise the required money, so if someone tries to sell you a Sea Cavalcade program, he's hot crazy. The coupon on the program is good  for a $100 prize draw.  This, however, does not solve the problem of what  is going to happen next year. This year's committee, for  a variety of reasons, are ;iin_ble or unwilling to continue  with the. Cavalcade.  This would be a good spot for one of the service  clubs to step in and offer to take on co-ordinating the  event. To tryto^ cohiihue as an entirely independent committee, competing with the service clubs to raise money,  is apparenty impossible. Ttt has become just one more  group, competing for the dollars available, and let's face  it, it takes quite a few to put on the Sea Cavalcade. This  year's expenditures came very close to the budgetted  $7,b66._Tie reason for the $1,700 deficit is not because of  exceptionalexpenditures, but because fund raising events  did not raise as much money as hoped. This would also  be a good time to start discussions with those organizations who put on money raising events during the Cavalcade, with a. yie\y to them paying part of their profit to  the Cavaicade, because without'; the Cavalcade, they  would not have had the chance to make as much as they  did. -77;';'  -A. ,:7-'7-7;  Something will have to be done, and done soon, if  we are to continue the Cavalcade. Last year's committee  started working on this year's Cavalcade in October.  Will there be a Sea Cavalcade next year? If there  is, will the committee have to start out with a large debt  to be paid before they can start working on the event itself? The answer is up to. you.  Somewhat amazing!  It seems somewhat amazing that our news gathering  organizations have at last come to the conclusion we are  losing the inflation battle. The newsgatherers point to the  . fact- that labor is losing the war. It has been evident for  some time that all of us are losing the war on inflation.  With the wholesale economic index mounting and  showing with clarity in retail prices, when the' wholesale boost affects them two or three months later, it does  ar>^��f��r strange that these newsgatherers should suddenly b^oorne aware of that fact. It has been evident for  many months that we are fighting a losing battle.  TTov��^T7pr We must give them credit for recognizing  an oh^ri/MVc fact when the figures become blatant in the  context of inflation. When we consider that our 1939 dol-  ]p*\ worth 100 cents; has depreciated to the point where  wp ^"require $3.50 or more to achieve the same spending nnwer it would appear that the effort.of wages to  keer�� n rv with costs could eventually require a laborer on  takirter home a day's pay, to spend immediately before it  has devalued.  Some rreoole will maintain this is an exaggeration.  Mavbp it is.but experience in the past has shown that  nwnwpv inflation, and we are close to it, is not a figment  of imagination.  Our federal authorities are no doubt worried even  though fh>v nrp^erit a placid face and in view of the un-  "��srtpint*fiR ip international economics and the general  trf*nd of wprliVe activities of certain nationals we should  r>erhpns consider we are now involved in a war of sur-  vivpl: iwith random shots now being fired in most un-  liVelv nla^es.Tt could get hotter and-most likely will.  Than wo will Jiavf controls clamped on us so fast we  will wonder what struck us.  In the 1953 Sept. 3 issue of  the Coast News, L.S. Jackson,  better   known   as  LjS.J., who  supplied the Coast -News with  plenty   of   remindscing, -wrote  j an article on Capt. A.H. Mellon  and His Mill.  He also recalls some people  who lived in the Port Mellon  area and wrote of them with  the fine gusto for which he  was noted] .  The article follows:  Now that The Road is in, the  modern pulp plant at Port __el-  lon is, we hope, the finale of a  long and chequered career.  The ups and downs of the  many starts and stops have always interested us at Gibsons.  As soon as it was known Port  Mellon had started up, automatically the clamor for ��� a  road ensued. It is a tribute to  past governments that a road  was not put in as there would  have been long periods \ of  maintenance for no good reason.  The origin of this plant is  quite interesting reading, from  the old B.C. Wood Pulp &  Paper Co. incorporated in 1901  with Capt. H.A. Mellon as  president., This man's history  is worth recording here.  Born in Nottingham, England, 1840, joined the Royal  Navy, was wounded at Luck-  now while takng part in the  Indian Mutiny. He came up in  sailing ships and then to steam,  and wound up as Commodore  Captain of the Dominion Line,  finally with Allan Line.  We next hear of him at  Winnipeg in 1880,' then Vancouver in 1886, the town 3  months old. Here he enters the  pulp and paper business by  founding the- B.C.' Wood Pulp  & Paper Co. The last we hear-  of him officially is in 1910  when this Company presented  him and his wife with some  handsome presents.  I remember the mill at' that,  time and its condition was  some-what dolorous. In 1915t16  we took some hay up to a man  for his horses. He was "frozen  in, and there was 6 inches of  ice from Bear Point up to the  dock.  The mill must have started  soon after that as it was operating in 17-18 because we "took  the  Spanish influenza victims  up r there   from   Gibsons   and  most of them never came back.  It closed some time after that  to   open   at   various   intervals  with the usual dire results,     j  Finally "the Vancouver Kraft  Co. opened it, and ran it till  1929, but it was closed through  the hungry thirties. In 1937. it  was forced to suspend only td  start  up in August the same  year.   In   1939  the Vancouver;  Kraft interests were sold and.  it was then idle for two years^  Some  time   later   the   Sorg;  Pulp  Co.   appeared   and  they  ran the mill for some consid-)  erable time and spent the most  money on rehabilitation. Once-  more it closed until the present,  owners took over and finalized  the modernization^ which  we  all .hope will continue.  This last development brought the road into full focus.  The entry of the ferry into the  picture made, an end of the indecision and the road was  finally under way.  A few sprigs of local color  are in order in the fairly long  history of the place known as  Khay - kul - hun, the Indian  name for it. the meaning of  which is lost in the mists. of  time.  We go back to 1791 when  the Spaniard Jose Maria Nar-  vaez saw the place from the  ' deck of the 'Santa Saturnina'.  Some of us who saw some of  the untouched timber in that  corner of Howe Sound before  the double bitted axe whacked  into it can draw on our imag-*  ination as to What it was like  when the Spaniards first saw  it.  The great fir, spruce, and  cedar that came down to the  beach, and the roiling boiling  sea life that must have been  in those days. It was no doubt  a good place for the Indians to  get a living which explains  their reserve there now.  Working   in   those   parts   in  1915,   I  encountered the saga  of the Indian versus the Eng- ,  lish   battle  at   the   mouth   of  Dakota Creek.  . One old chap had preempted there, and had put up  the usual type of buildings  and cleared some ground. He  did not like the Indians anyhow, and being one of the salt  of the earth, was very definite  about property rights, and he  got into his head that the beach  and the water' were his too.  It was the usual thing for the  Indians to get an easy fish by  prowling after dark with -, a  canoe and a torch attached to  the bow and spear a few steel-  heads. These are one fish that  will come up to a light.  Our friend had warned them  off several times before, and  this .particular night he thought they were a bit brusque  with, him, so he- unloaded two  barrels of bird-shot into them  and the war was on.

Anyway  aiway they went, to be sack  immediately with an old 44  rifle with which they beseiged  the shack and fired a few  rounds into the walls: The old  man showed me the slugs he  had dug out afterwards.  . The battle was a draw, as  the old man nailed up the,  shack and departed before  dawn by rowboat and d_d not  return for 5 years. The Indians  by then had given up coming  to that reserve. v  This - page should not' be  turned without paying homage  to a grand old couple "who  lived in that area for many  years. They came from a  family that is so well known  that like old wine needs no  bush from us.  These were Capt. and Mrs.  George Cates. This lady was an  excellent winter salmon fish-'  erman and many the evening  I saw her come in and slap  down several large spring salmon on the float. My acquaintance with Mr. Cates ripened  somewhat when I nearly drank  his glass eye, and this was the  way of it.  The eye was a' bit of <a  nuisance no doubt,, and'George  would ease the situation a bit  by putting the eye in a glass  of water and wear a patch.for  the time being. It was a hot  day and we came in to use the  phone and while waiting for  connection we needed a drink  and there was no water.  Mrs Cates said George was  down at the wheel, which  meant the small hydro, he had,  and maybe there would be  water soon. However.the kitchen was some-what dark and  I saw this glass with water in  it on the kitchen drainboard  and tipped it. up. While saying  something to Mrs. Cates,.! saw  the horrorstruck look come on  her face just before the glass  eye rolled from the bottom of  thie gfLasB" and touched my  lips. At this moment Mr. Cates  came, in and took in the situation.; at a glance and said,  'Mr. I should have been in a  hell of a fix if you had  swallowed it.'  Those things are of the past.  For the-future, we hope that  the -road will always be open  and that the mill will have a  long . life and many years of  profitable operation.  .

The unit is capable of producing 30% more/standard, top-  grade sidewall and roof shakes  with a two man crew instead  of the usual three required for.  the hammer and froe system.  Wray's machine is capable of  turning out 20 to 25 squares of  shakes per day, and. when you  consider there are five bundles  to   a   square   and   35   to   45  shakes   to   each   bundle,   that  adds up to a lot of production.  Another feature of this unique shake-shop on wheels, is  that  by lowering the hinged  sides and demounting several  pieces of equipment, it can be  readied for the road in seven  minutes, to move to the next  cedar cutting area. When sides  are up they give shelter to the  packing machine.  Capt. Ed and eldest son Ted  have gone into business together in this venture.  Both George Hill and Mr.  Wray emphasize all operations  were controlled by a deadiman  switch on each machine, thus  increasing the safety factor. A  chain-cutoff saw slices the raw  material to 18 inches long.  These are then fed into the  guillotine and split to % inch  for straight shakes or side-  wall shakes. Others are cut Vz  inch thick and 24 inches long  Ihen.spilt, by a tapering machr  ine.  When you climb aboard the  truck you realize the engineering job involved and contained  in a compact space of 20 x 10  ft. As George Hill explains it,  The CORPORATION of the VILLAGE of SECHELT  NOTICE OF ELECTION  PUBLIC NOTICE is hereby given to the Electors of  the VILLAGE MUNICIPALITY of SECHELT, that  I require the presence of the said ELECTORS at the  office of W.

The  raw cedar is fed into one end  and comes  out  the  other  all  bundled ana ready for market:  As each side is split they are  edge-trimmed with a circular  saw as required and then down  a chute to be packed into regulation bundles and strapped  together by a banding machine  The result is excellent quality  bundles of shakes such as roofers and contractors dared only  to dream about.  The unit is well at by fluorescent lights over each machine. Even waste is automatically eliminated by a conveyor  to a practically pollution-free  burner. The unit is powered  by an 18.5 k.w. Kohler diesel  electric generator which provides the juice for the six 220  volt three-phase motors' as  well as the 110 volt lighting  system.  'There goes, a real good job.'  commented George Hill, as the  yellow truck disappeared  around the corner. 'I can- tell  you this, now that we've got  all the bugs ironed out on that  one, the next job won't take  50 days to put together.'  CHECK OUR RATES  Budget  Rent a Truck  A colorful old-world German  food shop and gourmet delicatessen found its way to Gibsons, when Helen and Karl  Schroers acquired the Wyngaert family neighborhood  grocery store, located for many  years on the Highway, opposite the Bowladrome.  The idea of operating their  own business, began shortly  in '66 from the mining town of  Flin Plon, Man. where Karl,  a master machinist and a German-born Canadian citizen was  employed. Here he met and  married Helen. There is a family of two, Kelora 9 and  Derrick  6.  For the seven years Karl  again took up his' trade as  master machinist at Port Mellon Mill. In his spare time, he  drove the Wyngaert supply  truck on the regular round of  wholesalers in Vancouver.  Very often he made the trip  on his own and in this way  got to know the manufacturers  and   distributors.  This  know-  edge stands him in good stead.  He and Helen took over the  Wyngaert's business almost. a  year ago.  Since the takeover and with  the assistance of the former  owners, Frank and Jean Wyngaert, a complete transformation of the store inside and  out, has taken place. Karl, a  handy man with tools is working wonders inside the shop  and on the exterior of the cottage store has fashioned a new  and brightly painted facade,  complete with picture window  facing the highway, including  decorated shutters, while overhead a wedge-shaped two-way  sign reads, Variety.Foods.  Inaide, a radical cbaag* bam  also been worked; ttoo modern commercial-sized refrigeration unit* both glass-fronted,  dispay a tempting assortment  of imported and domestic  smoke-cured meats and' fish  and cheeses. Another cabinet  offers an amazing collection of  imported      gourmet      tidbits,  everything from caviar to can-'  ape fixings. One area is given  over to leading brands of  health and organic foods, and  the bakery section, a wide  variety of French, Italian and  German breads and buns. Regular grocery and dairy items,  garden and household supplies  all find a place along with imported candle, and confections  for the sweet tooth, inc-ud-Og  among other brands, Toblers  Swiss chocolate, all set out in  a large, tempting array.  The latest inovation, an on-,  the-spot sandjwich  and coffee  bar, where you can shop the  food  cabinets   to   choose s the  fixings .for your  light lunch.  Karl,  a  Gennan-fcorn Canadian citizen, who as a bewildered 10-year old in his native  town   of   Leverkusen   on  the  Rhine, still recalls the, terror  where, from a bunker, in 1944  and '45, he watched the'repeated mass daylight raids of 4-  engined American flying fortresses.

We have, started a fund  which Mr Montgomery .will administer and which will be  used wherever it is most need-.  ed. The insurance will pay for  much of the damage .but those  who attended Elphie will remember that some things were  donations from outsiders or  purchased by the students'  council and some things, such .  as library books, will take  years to replace completely  even with insurance and government granits.-  It is hoped that as many  former Elphie students as possible ' will contribute to the  fund. Mr." Montgomery will  send each contributor a report  on the final use made of the  money. Cheques may be sent  to 'Ex-Elphie Fund, c/o Elphinstone School, -Gibsons.

ROSA SWAN.  Sunshine Coast Regional Board  RJR: li Davis Bay, B.C.  Attention Mr. Frank West  Dear Sirs:  This letter is intended as a  follow-up of the one published  by the Coast News. That letter  was read at the Regional board  meeting Sept. 2, arid! discussed  at some length. It was explained that the area of Chapman  Creek and Chapman Lake bad  been closed off in order that a  study might be carried out to  determine the ultimate use of  the area. A report on the study  would be available some time  later this year and until it was  submitted the board members  had ho idea what its recom-  closure was at the request of  mendations might be.  At first I was told that the  the Public Health Department  in eonj unctiort with' the Forestry people but this is evidently  false' information. In a letter  from the Water Investigations  Branch of the Department of  Lands and Forests we are told  that the Chapman Creek watershed has hot been' declared  a Health District and that Mr.  Bell, the senior Public Health  Inspector of the Coast Garibaldi Health District is taking the  matter up with the Regional  District to clarify the situation.  Following upon the logging  activities, it would appear that  no one has any control  over  what goes on in our so called  watershed area. A large section  has now been completely, log-  led off on the north side of ���the  creek*at7 the end of the-West  Road. According to a letter received from Mr. Johnston/the  Zone   Forester,   'buffer   strips  130 feet wide were to be left  oh creek banks.' No such strip  has   been   left   on .Chapman  Creek and the trees have been  felled right down to the water  Logging is continuing on the  north side of the road in an  area adjacent to a medium sized feeder creek, running into  Chapman Creek which has previously been denuded of trees,  SUNSHINE COAST REGIONAL DISTRICT  ACT  Agriculture Land Reserve By-law and Plans  INFORMATION DISPLAYS - HEARINGS  GIBSONS - Thurs..

If this is/the case then 1  think it high time the .public  got into the picture and insisted that these operations were  suspended at least until the  study being carried out released its recommendations.  The Regional Board is havr  ing a meeting on the Itlth of  the "month to discuss this inat-  ter and a good many questions  need to be asked.

Out of tills  number there are only four  qualified in the legal profession. The remainder are laymen as far as law is concerned.  Even though these laymen.are  veterans of war and peacetime service they do. not posr-  sess the legal qualifications to  solve the many problems rer  gard'ing war disability veterans.  . Commissioners of the Canadian Pension Commission are  paid extremely high salaries  ranging from $19,400 to $31,000  per annum and many, are appointed to a term of ten years.  Perhaps the elected members  of parliment who make the  rules will investgate and rer  medy this situation. It would  indexed be advantageous to war  disability veterans' and their  dependents to have all the  commissioners of the Canadian  Pension Commission qualified  in law. - V.

Of the 288 heads turned in to Fisheries Service head  depots during August, 200  were found to contain coded  wire tags (172 Chinook; 28  Ooho). Each fish was originally identified' by the absence  of the small fleshy adipose  fin on the back near the tail.  Each tagged head turned in  paid a reward of $3.

The July - August results  give evidence of a distinct pattern of northward movement  for hatchery raised Coho and  Ohinook (the majority holding to the coast on which they  were originally released).  Oapilano fish were recovered  further north of Texada Island  this time, as far up as Read  Island!. QuaMcuxn1 fish were  very numerous near Campbell  River.

You are trying! to be  fair to everybody and learning  your responsibilities at the  same time. Most people have  no patience and- if no action is  forth coming within a month  or so the official is to blame.

These  simple additions can transform  freshv - cooked    and    mashed  pumpkin or canned, pumpkin  into tempting puddings, cookies,  muffins," cakes;  custards^  bread and of course, pies.  The next time you make a  pumpkin pie, why not make  several and freeze them for  later use. Pumpkin pies may be  frozen either baked o_ unbaked  but tests conducted by Food  Advisory Service^ Agriculture Canada,' indicate that it  is best to freeze them unbaked as the pastry becomes soggy when baked pies are frozen.  To freeze unbaked pies^ prepare your favorite recipe and  set them in the freezer untflL  the filling is frozen (about 3  hours), then wrap in a moisture-proof  material and  seal  To serve, bake frozen pies, at  400'F   for   one   hour,   reduce  oven  to  350T?   and   continue  baking  until  the  pie  is  set  (about 20 minutes). If you prefer to freeze the pies after  baking, they may be t__rww_  in the refrigerator for star to  seven hours o_> overnight.  biisy ;  ri^,*iri'": extended care  for Thrift  CARE |  ABOUT  ___.

SO THEY MAY SEE AGAIN  SUPPORT YOUR CNIB  Coast News, Oct. 10 1973.     9  Point of Law  (By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright)  (Continued from last week)  Many writers consider the  forcing of hyacinths as easy as  falling off a log. Follow the  rules carefully and, one can  flower well-grown specimen-.  For example, when three to  five bulbs are planted in a  bowl, you should aim to have  them flower at the same time  with, large, bright flowers  standing erect and above the  leaves of the plant. In' addition  you should pot up a number  of containers with these bulbs  to provide a sequence of flowering over a period of time;  This can be accomplished in  two ways.  After planting the bulbs as  usual, extend the storage in  darkness at relatively low  temperatures, or, stagger the  plantings and choose different  varieties as these will require  different growing periods.  Best results from forced flowering of bulbs are obtained as  you <approach the normal  spring flowering date.   '  The following method of  planting and growing is suggested to grow hyacinths in  pebbles successfully. Select  any vase or bowl, colored or  otherwise, that will hold water and is sufficiently large to  _ accommodate several cups of  small pebbles and the bulb or  bulbs. Place several pieces of  charcoal in the 'bottom of the  bulb receptacle. Then half-  fill the container with pebbles.  Set the bulbs on the surface of the pebbles allowing  about a half-inch spacing between the bulbs. Add more  pebbles until the bottom third  of the bulbs are embedded in  the gravel.
