While stating that  nothing could be done at the  present time, he promised all the  help he could give in the matter.  In a letter to E. C. Carson,  minister of public works at Victoria, Mr. Gargrave pointed out  that the cost of upkeep of automobiles in the Sechelt district  is out of all proportion to other  districts, because of the "disgraceful condition of the roads."  "Broken, springs and axles are  everyday occurrences," he said,  "and at one time during the  holidays every taxi in the district was in the garage for repairs, leaving the people with  no public  conveyance for two  Y He urged the minister to make  available additional money and  machinery for repair work to  these roads.  .In   reply  .to   his   letter, Mr.  Carson said''-that more machin-  shapb.' lie stated, however,  that reports from his department did not indicate-, that  Peninsula roads were as bad as  Mr. Gargrave suggested.

School district No. 46, including Gibsons Landing, covers the  area from Bowen. Island to Pender Harbour. Of the 17 trustees  elected for this district, ten are  in an advisory capacity while  seven are active trustees. The  latter are chosen by members  of the board.  Election results showed that  Gibsons Landing residents gave  83 votes to D. G. MacDougall, 63  to J. Filley, 50 to G. Mardin.  The latter has been chosen by;  the trustees for three years as  chairman of the board. ;  According to ratepayers, such:  an action is "undemocratic"1  since Mr. Mardin polled the;  lowest number of votes at elec-1  tion time.

C  Friday, January 24, 1947  ROBERT BURNS will for all time occupy a  warm spot in the hearts of most people. He  came fron peasant stock, he spoke the language  of the common people, and more than any other  writer of his time he spoke for them. In his  poemsj epistles and epigrams 'are contained  bristling satires and indignation about those  conditions which twist and warp the lives of  the less fortunate.  Robbie Burns was born in a mud hut January 25, 1759.   He died of rheumatic fever and  tuberculosis at the early age of 37.    He grew  up during an intensely stormy period of the  world's    history,,   when    the   great   struggles  against feudalism and intolerance were surging.  Burns   hailed    the   French    and   American  revolutions, and was deeply saddened by conditions in *his Scotland.   There the peasants were  driven from the crofts and landed areas, many  of them to die in cities or in ships on the way  to America.    Reformers or anyone who voiced  opposition to the small, remote governing class  were labelled Jacobins  dangerous revolutionaries and seditious plotters.   Burns-saw an extensive spy system by which the government  tried to weed out all sympathizers with France  or    America.     Liberal-minded    people    were  arrested, accused of treason, sentenced to death  or the penal colony.  Thus it was that Burns wrote from the fulness of his own experience and from the depths  of understanding and emotion. He uttered the  despair of the Ayrshire pasants and his was a  defiant shout in a most reactionary period in  Scottish history. He was the champion of the  oppressed and of liberty. He spoke with curled  lip about the princelings of pomp, "the knights  wi' garters."  But he also could sing sweetly, with infinite  tenderness and lyricism, of nature's beauty, and  his beloved Ayrshire.  The poems bf Robbie Burns will never be  outdated so long as the human heart will respond to love, justice, tolerance and the brotherhood of man.  In defence of the liberal and the reformer  he wrote, and it is as true today as then that  A man is thought a knave, a fool,  A bigot plotting crime,  Who for the advancement of his kind  Is wiser than his time.  In Lighter Mood  ���Best of The Week  . "Why so sad?"  "My friend just got run over by a train."  "Gee, that's tough."  "You said it.  He was wearing my best suit."  *        *        *  "I hear you've got a new lollypop invention."  "What makes you think so?"  ���   "My father says you just made  $500  on a  sucker."  INSENSIBILITY  .1 hear a soft voice whisper, and I know it calls  to me,  But faint it murmers through the miles between;  I see a pale star tremble where it silvers 'on  the sea, ..:,������..-  But bridgeless are the leagues that intervene.  I feel the waves of darkness rise and overflow,  the day,  And sense the tints that touch the eastern sky;  I love the willows whisper as it lures the)breeze  astray,  And yet its voice is not for such as I.  I scent the musk of flowers that each new day  brings to view,  r And call an answer to a twitt'ring bird;  I list the lonely waterfall that dies and sings  anew, -.'*���'  Yet in my heart I know I have not heard.  I dream the dreams of emperors, and I live  their conquests o'er,  And in my grasp I hold the stars and moon;  I pause to gather garlands that a world leaves  at my door,  And yet I know that I shall wake too soon.  Quelqu'un.  The Second Freedom  THERE APPEARED in ohr office yesterday an  almost unbelievable document, a folder relating instances of the flaunting of civil liberties and private rights such as might have been  applicable to Nazi Germany. Private citizens  were dragged from home and office and thrown  in filthy jails and held incommunicado; property was confiscated and left in open trucks in a  rainstorm, destroying its value and defacing  important records.  Where did this happen? In Quebec. We were  going to say "in Canada," but that comes a  little hard,'under the circumstances.  At the back of it stands Premier Maurice  Duplessis of Quebec, as big a minor-league  Franco as has yet been seen on this continent.  He h^s appointed himself persecutor of the supporters of Jehiovah's Witnesses, whom he counts  as mischievous heretics. True, the Witnesses  are not popular in Quebec. They oppose with  vigor the teachings not only of the Roman  Catholic church but that of most organized  Christianity.,.  But in spite of that, Duplessis has been justifiably rebuked from all quarters for his Fascist  deeds. He has been rebuked strongly by an in^  fluential itoman Catholic weekly, The Canadian  Register; he has been condemned by a leading  Quebec political figure, they Hon. C. G. Power,  himself a Catholic. But that is nothing to this  pint-sized King Herod.

Even John Mc-  Kichan as   the   burglar   didn't  seem to want to threaten Larry  too fiercely.  Little Tommy McLeod in  "Last Flight Over" had everyone sitting on the edge of their  seats, he stole the show from his  elders and if he continues will  be starting a collection of "Oscars" l^imself.   Also in this play  THE UNITED States Pacific  Coast Association of Pulp and  Paper Manufacturers announced  a 10 per cent "cost of living"  increase for 15,000 employees in  35 Oregon, Washington and  California mills.
