Array !yy^ %\  GRANTHAMS��� A movement  to incorporate three communities, Granthams, Hopkins Landing and Soames Point, as an incorporated village, will be discussed at a meeting at Granthams hall tonight.  These three communities '���  which border on the village of'"'���.  Gibsons  Landing,  are  now in  unorganized    provincial    territory.     Promoters   of   the   hew  movement  seek   new   facilities-  for   their  development.     Some  of them also charge that taxation under the present situation  is too high. i  RESCUES CHILD  FROM DROWNING  ;4lALFMOON BAY���Fiye-year-  old Danjiy Mosier was saved  from drowning Sunday by Mr.  . B. Sands, after the youngster  plunged into seven feet of water  from the foot bridge over the  creek.   He was riding his wistgon  -across tjte^  V "Sandy," who was fortunately  home at the time, managed to  reach the boy and bring him  quickly to shore with no more  serious results than the icy  ducking and slight shock.  Danny's main worry was for  his wagon, which had immediately sunk. Two other youngsters, Hilda Mason and Donald ,  Head, rescued it later, however,  and returned it to its worried  owner.

''Little Poachw"  AN ITlSMappearing in a recent  issue stated that the gas boat,  "Little Poacher," belonging to  Edward A. Wray of Irvines  Landing, was in operation again  after its sinking. In actuality,  the boat has not run since the  accident January 11, and is still  undergoing repairs.  THREE   WOMEN,   three   men  and an infant child were rescued from disabled and helpless  craft in stormy Gulf of Georgia  last Tuesday night and Wednesday.  Late Tuesday night, off Gab-  riola Island, the Vancouvefy  tugboat Alia ver dy picked up  three men, a woman and child  who had been adrift 36 hours in  a filling, disabled fishboat.  Wednesday morning, off Entrance Island lighthouse, distress: signals brought quick rescue to: Miss Ethel Clarkson and  Mrs. Joyce Glennie, both of Gibsons Landing. Their small  craft had broken down.  The Gabribla rescue came  just in time. The fishboat  party had about given up hope.  The boat was shipping water  and a strong gale was rising,  y In a report to his owners,  Harbor Towing Co. Ltd., of  Vancouver, Capt. Steve O'Neill  declared: "They couldn't have  lasted out the night."  He sighted;.,the disabled boat  when his own powerful, sturdy  diesel tug was taking a buffeting from heavy seas, but quickly  took the fishboat in tow.    T.  He landed the party sale at  Gabriola, and Ycontinued] up  Howe -Sotiiio!.  barge to San Juan, west coast of  Vancouver Island, he reached  his goal just in time to take an  injured logger aboard and speed  hiih to hospital at Victoria.  The Wednesday morning rescue at Entrance Island was made  by a fisheries department patrol  vessel dalled to the scene after  Nanaimo police had sighted distress signals sent up by the gas-  boat, The Islander.  The small craft was at the  mercyofrjngh* winds \ and seas,  and the women were in serious  danger when the rescuers ar-  rive<l.  They had left Gibsons Landing at daybreak, headed for  Nanaimo. The gasboat was  towed to Nanaimo for repairs.  far Angler  Dies at Mission  MISSION ��� Jimmy James, 81,  former proprietor of famous  Cheekeye Lodge on Cheakamus  River, north of Squamish, died  last Friday at his home in Sil-  verdale near Mission.  Well known to lower mainland anglers for almost 40 years,  he ran the Cheekeye Lodge for  30 years before selling it to Bert  Fisher seven years ago.  Surviving are his wife, Hilda  James, and a stepson, Arthur  Ross, both at Silverdale.  INJURES HIP  KENNETH Zantolbs of :HiHside,  on Howe Sound, is in i��t��  Paul's Hospital with hip injuries  suffered when a truck got out  of control and ran away last'  Wednesday morning.

Asks P#ents Keep  uses  SECHELT ��� Sechelt District  Z- Parent - Teacher Association  has asked parents to .keep children off school buses in this  area, in a campaign .for elimination of hazardous road ; conditions.  Reasons for the request were  laid out -in-^BL circular given to  school children to take home to  their parents.  They were:  1. Children receive a bad  shaking up riding over the  rpads, and some of the smaller  ones are sick after arriving at  school;  y 2. To keep on schedule the  bus has to discontinue the return trip to .Selma Park, thus  making the first trip crowded.  Some of the children have to remain standing.  3. In one case the bus broke  through several inches of frost  into ay bad hole, delaying the  bus two hours. The children  either had to walk or wait  around in the cold until the bus  couldlcontinue the trip, and arrived.* at the school thoroughly  chilled;  4. Conditions of roads will  becomeY more hazardous as a  result of tlie latest frost.  ���Parents were asked to keep  the children off the buses until  a report .is received from Hon.  E. C. Carson, minister of public  works, who is scheduled to visit  the district this week.   :  PENDER  HARBOUR���A  wed  ding of: interest-took place at'  Ladner United Church, when  Sgt. Ernest Charles Carpenter  of Royal Canadian.Dejntal Corps,  son of Mr. and Mrs. Ernie Carpenter of Royal Oak, Burnaby,  ..and also of (Ernies Point) Madeira Park, Pender Harbour,  was united in marriage to Muriel Margaret, eldest daughter  of Mr. and Mrs. W. M. Cunningham of Ladner, B.C., on Saturday evening, January 18. The  Rev. N. J. Grees officiated/  v-   '  The bride wore a charming  gown of cream satin, witly; silk  net overskirt and a floor-length  embroidered veil held in palace  by a coronet of flowers. Her  bouquet consisted of. wnite  chrysanthemums and pink carnations. Two bridesmaids attended her, her sister A^lie  wearing a floor-length pink Jiilk  voile dress, with matching  flowers in her hair, and bouqfciet  of white 'mums and pink carnations; Molly, sister of the gro(j>m,  wore a poudre blue taffeta  floor-length dress, her bouqjuet  being yellow 'mums. /  William Kellett also of R<byal  Oak, Burnaby, acted as pest  man to the groom. A riecepftion.  was held at the home ��� of "j the  bride, and after a pleasant Evening spent with about 50 guests,  the happy couple left to spend  their honey-moon at Victoria.  '#  Dear Mr. Gargrave:  The other day I received a  communication from the provincial police intimating that if  I pay the sum of $20, plus one  more dollar, I will be permitted  to drive my 1930 vintage light  sedan over the government  roads. Roads? I drive about  1,000 miles a year, so this works  out at about two cents per mile;  that would not be bad, in itself.  but driving on these tracks of  ruts, wash-boards, pot-holes,  mud and ponds, that Messrs.  Hart, Anscomb and Carson submit as roads is a low or second-  gear proposition most of the  time with resultant frequent  trips to the gas station. Not to  mention the repair shop.  However, operating costs are  low as things are now; the roads  are such that anything less than  ^"a   caterpillar  tractor  is   pretty  hopeless.    I was out the other  day in a four-wheel drive army  vehicle, and that got hung up.  So my car is in the garage.    I  hire a taxi when necessary and  when   possible.     That   is   not  always possible as the other day  all local taxis were in the shop  for repairs.    Anyway, the local  taxis, after sad and costly experience,   will   only   undertake  certain local and limited trips.  They can do this.   The bus service  also has suspended operation, owing to the impassable  condition   of   the   roads.     The  school bus has likewise had to  suspend service.    Local  trucking   companies,   like  the  taxis,  only undertake local and limited  trips.   But the local doctor, and  the local nurse, cannot do this.  They have to go anyway.   Badly overworked even When road  -conditions are  good   (which  is  seldom),   trying   to   serve   the  needs of a large, heavily populated and extended district,  they are now faced with the  situation    of   receiving   urgent  ":;-calI&:*:��r^h^��er^  and trying to get to those patients, at all hours of the night,  over roads that regular drivers,  with long experience, refuse to  tackle. Last week the nurse  was called out one (morning at  4 a.m. and got back, home at  2.30 the next morning. Some  of the intervening time had  been spent caring for sick people; the rest had been spent in  fighting her way in the dark  over our King's highways.  It must be admitted that the  department of public works  really mobilized their forces to  cope with the situation. Last  week the whole crew (three  men) were loading some sandy  loam into the truck preparatory  to putting ii on the road. The*  effectiveness of that truckloacfc  can be estimated when one considers that there are perhaps  2d0 miles of road requiring at~  tention.  It has apparently escaped the  notice of the provincial government that, during the last forty  years, various equipment sucfi  as rock crushers, bulldozers,  power shovels, ditching machines, etc., have been invented,  and in some parts-of the worjd;  have   been . used   successfully.  Could you, Mr. Gargravfe,  perhaps suggest to the government that equipment such as  this might be tried in British  Columbia?    Thank you,  Yours sincerely,  ROBERT BURNS,  Gibsons Landing.

Reports inform me  tHat quite a number of the children became car sick, caused  by; the swaying of the bus while  trying to plow through mud up '  to tits axles. Needless to say,;  tMy had another holiday on  ^Friday, Monday and Tuesday.  Went to school on Wednesday  and were off again on Thursday  and Friday.  ���  These boys and girls don't  appreciate ytliese enforced holidays. A high school course is  difficult enough without having  to miss days here and there because of road conditions over  which these children have no  control.  I've driven over many miles  of B.C. roads, some of them listed as "wagon roads" on the  maps, but the worst road I ever  ran into is the stretch between  Gibsons Landing and our home  at Roberts Creek. This road is  on the map as a "main road"  (gravel)! (  Let it be hoped the delegation  sent to Victoria in regard to this  vital matter meets with immediate success.  Mrs. M.

Mrs. Robinson expects to  visit Mrs. Bourn in the early  summer. A lot of people living  iii England have no idea of the  sifee of the North American con-  , tiiaent. Over a period of years  Mrs. Robinson has sent addresses of friends of hers, who  have left England to live, in  Cajnada, to Mrs. Bourn asking  hef to call on them.

Forests can be of permanent  benefit in preserving nature's  balance and providing an annual, cash income. /  "FOREST DEPENDENCY"  Some figures are given to  show the dependence of the  country's economy upon forest  products: railway ties used in  Canada's transportation systems  would make a forest of 26 million trees each 50 feet tall and a  foot thick; frame houses form  72 per cent of Canada's total  dwellings; and in one year 713,-  000,000 cords of wood are cut  for firewood.  CONSERVATION   NEEDED  Their share of crown-owned  forest   land   could   produce   an  annual harvest of 1,000 cords of  wood a year for every 55 adult  persons    in    Canada,    roughly  equal to 1,000 tons of newsprint  paper.      However,    the    f ores|  asset is accompanied by the responsibility of making sure that  conservation methods are such  as to bring along annual crops  in   perpetuity.     In   this   work,  says the article, provincial governments representing the people   and   industries   which   put  the. forest   into   use   have   the  obligation   to   work   closely   in  harmony.    In addition, there is  "room for expansion in the interest  taken  by  the  Dominion  government,"    and    some    way  should   be   found   around   any  constitutional difficulty.    "It is  a\ need big enough to demand  the greatest degree of co-oper-.  ative effort."   ,  The article continues in pari:  "So   much   for   the    Canadian  forests;  now  look   at  the  pulp  and paper industry which stems  from  il,  one  of  the  major  industrial enterprises in ihe world.  It has a world-wide reputation  for   qualify   and   dependability.  From ihe standpoint of capital  invested,  it  is  far   ihe  largest  industry in Canada.   It is first  in   employment   among   manufacturing industries, first in total wages paid, first in export  values, first in ihe net value of  production.    Ii   is   ihe   largest  single industrial buyer of goods  and   services.    It   provides   ihe  principal, and in some cases ihe  only, industrial activity of many  towns. It is a substantial contributor io government revenues.  "Some people think of the  pulp and paper industry as a  continually ravenous consumer  of the forests, and they will be  surprised to learn that it takes  only 16.7 per cent of the annual  forest consumption. Fuelwood  uses 22.6. per cent, timber,  pulpwood for export, and miscellaneous products 34.1 per  cent, and fire; insects and disease take 26.6 per cent. Yet so  vital is the continued supply of  its raw material that the pulp  and paper industry has done  more on its own in the way of  forest management and more in  the way of developing the forests for use in perpetuity than  all the other users combined.  PAPER  WORTH  MORE      "., ,.  "A log is about three times as  valuable to the economy of ithe  country if it is used by a p/ulp  mill than if it is merely sawn.  If the log isye^pprte_i,raccording  to the brief prepared for the  Ontario Royal Commission,.jits  value is only one-fifth or one-  sixth as great as if converted  into paper. In the last year jfor  which figures are available, we  exported 1,672,000 cords of  wood. Since a cord of wood  about equals a ton of newsprint paper, and the biggest individual newsprint mill produces 900 tons of paper a day, it  may be seen that the wood now  exported would keep six mills  running all year."  "LOG FARMERS" NEEDED  After dealing with production  of pulp, paper and other products, ihe Monthly Letter suggests ihe opportunity thai is  open io operators of small wood  lots. "When running at capacity, ihe pulp and paper industry uses some eight million  cords of pulpwood annually, of  which about six million cords  are   cut  from   limits  leased  or  owned by ihe industry, while  ihe remainder is purchased from  private forest owners, ihe majority of whom are farmers.  More could be made of the private business of raising pulpwood for sale if private wood-  lots were operated under any  kind of long-term forestry plan,  assuring continuity and certainty of supply. In ��� 1845 ihe industry paid $19 million for  pulpwood it brought from pra-  vale  vendors."  In conclusion, the article remarks: "And, finally, there is  imperative need for world law  and order. World trade it vital  to this Canadian industry.  ERIC INGLIS  GENERAL  TRUCKING  and FUEL  Gibson's Landing  ^^������*_w^^  I   ' * *!���'  Valentine Dance  GIBSONS HALL  Friday, Feb. 14  9  ?

Friday, February 7, 1947  9  l*-ffe8S8@l  I dreamed a dream the other night  I thought that I had flown  Into a land where all was bright  And troubles were unknown.  The dear ol' sun shone every day,  The rain came down at night;  Soft zephyrs blew from o'er the hills,  And everything went right.  The roads within this lovely realm  Were sound and broad and grand;  Of Caen stone and English flint,  They really beat the band!  One never saw a spot of mud,  One never trudged the mire,'  But skipped along quite skittishly,  O, land of my desire!  The "bussy" always wore a smile,  He had no need to swear;  For riding o'er these lovely roads  Was like riding through the air.  I heard no wheeled monster pass  With screams and ghoulish groanSj  To push along the sloppy mud  Or huck up all the stones.  O'er hill and dale the good roads went,'  As far as eye could scan;  There was no lifeboat standing by  To save the Taxi man;  And if a man would quench his thirst,  A "Pied Cow" was at hand;  O, happy, happy, happy, happy,  Happy, happy land!  Jon Quill, Gibsons Landing  The Dreamer  If I, like a dreamer, could turn off and on  The thoughts of my vagabond mind,  And magical visions could steal like the dawn  When night lifts its mantling blind.  I wonder what fairy-like castles I'd view  On hilltops bedizened with gold?  I wonder what mythical lays I'd pursue,  Through glamorous ages of old?  I wonder what legends I'd choose to inspect   ;  From nets of adventure I cast?  I wonder what heroes I'd choose to project  On screens of the glorious past?  I wonder if it is the biggest event  That longest remains in our heart,  Or is it some short joyful hour we have spent  That seems the most loath to depart?  If I, like a dreamer, could choose as I please  From all earth's ecstatic reserve,  And from the sweet depths of my slumbering  ease  Could conjure my visions to serve.  I think by my fireside lowly I'd rest,  All free from the cares of the day,  And, gazing on scenes that my boyhood loved  best,  I'd dream all the long years away.  QUELQU'UN.  Price Ceilings  IN THE MAIN, price ceilings must go and go  quickly if Canadian business is to" get back to  its real job of producing a normal flow of  goods for domestic and export demand. Empty  shelves and unfilled export orders are not helping anyone.  Both the authorities and consumers generally  might just as well face the fact that there is  bound to be some upward revision in prices  when the great bulk of the ceilings come off;  but that may prove a small sacrifice if it ends  the present annoying and dangerous shortages.  A fixed price for a shirt or a pound of nails  only becomes a bad joke when there are no  shirts or nails to be had.  In Lighter Mood  ���Best of The Week  "Is everything shut up for the night?" asked  wifey.  "Everything but you dear," was hubby's re-  Yply.  *       *       *  "There's just one thing I want to tell you  before you go any further," said the girl to  her eager suitor. .

This newspaper goes, on record as standing  whole-heartedly behind the Red Cross blood  transfusion service as a challenging opportunity for the citizens of this community to take  an active part in a great humanitarian effort.  Income Tax Evaders  FRASER ELLIOTT, former deputy minister of  the federal income tax department, in a statement on relinquishing office, said that certain  business firms, by making false reports, were  avoiding the payment of their full income tax.  He said that the Income Tax Branch was handicapped in catching up with the evaders because of lack of qualified staff. The new minister of finance, Douglas Abbott, has announced  that legislation wiUr||te brought down at the  coming session of parliament to make tax evasion more difficulty       y  Because of son^fe quirk in  human  nature,  many, whoy��re:y;i^-y0ther respects exemplary  citizens, consider the evasion of taxes and cus-  ��� tbte^utfc'^^ they can get.  away with itJf Tne^'fadl to appreciate that when  they evade the-paiihehfc pf their proper taxation, it is not the; government they are robbing  biit 'their fello'i^itizenii.: When the Excess  Profits Tax wa|s- iiwjpBseid" in the early years pf'  the war, many corporations and wealthy individuals became intensely interested in religious,  charitable arid educational institutions. So  generous did their donations to these institutions become that the minister of finance had  to crack down on them by refusing to allow  such donations in their full amount as proper  deductions from their income tax.  There is one group however, who cannot  evade taxation: that is wage and salary workers, whose income tax is deducted at the source.  This class of income tax payers,, not only cannot evade payment of their tax, but, in many  cases, overpay, and have to wait a considerable  time for a refund. It happens in this way: If  a wage or salary worker is paid, say, $200 in  wages or salary for the month of January, income tax is deducted on the basis of an income of $2,400 a year. He may not earn anything for February and lesser amounts than  $200 for the other months, but he has to wait a  year, perhaps more, for the refund of the  amount overpaid.  Corporations or individuals who evade their  legal taxes by making false returns should be  punished as are persons who are found guilty  of theft. Besides enacting legislation to prevent evasion of taxation, the government should  arrange for quicker refunding of over-payment  to persons in the) low-income groups. Exemptions for both married and single persons should  be increased tP an amount that will allow for  a decent standar^ of living.  Social services and other government services can only be finaiiped through taxation.  People should b^ taught that the trouble is not  that taxes are too high, but that incomes are  too low. The reinedy _:br that situation is not  lowering taxes J%rt incomes.    Higher  incomes can comls drilyfthrough a higher national income. T^ used as an instrument forYthebe^ryc^^ the national  income. It cainriojt^fetdb often repeated that  the measure; of a person's tax contribution lies  not in what he pafors but in the amount he has  left to Jive on aifter taxes are paid.���CCF.  News.  R.

Storm  Tug, Six  THE FREAK northwest gale' which swept this district  Thursday morning took its toll of damage at Blubber  Bay, where six scows were swept onto the beach and holed.  Occurring about 4 a.m., the scows, which were all in at the  Blubber Bay dock, broke their lines and headed toward  the beach. ..    "  A diesel tug, in charge of a  Home Oil scow delivering oil  at Pacific Lime Company, broke  loose from the wharf where she  was pumping and, lacking any  power, began to drift shoreward. A Clayburn. Company  steam tug, under power, cut  adrift her three scows and went'  to the aid of the diesel tug. The  latter, which is owned by the  Coyle Navigation Company,  was already too near the beach.  Holed as she struck-shore, she  sank in shallow water.  The three Marpole Towing  Company scows, cut adrift, were  beached and holed as well. Most  of the rock they were carrying  ���for the Pacific Lime Company  was salvaged.. A fifth scow,  carrying two cranes, one for the  Keys Construction Company at  Blubber Bay and the other for  Powell River, joined the growing number on the beach, while  the sixth arrival was not carrying any freight.  Both the cranes were saved,  as well as a piledriver in the  harbor. All six. scows and the  sunken tug are still where the  storm left them. An adjuster is.  expected from Vancouver to determine damage before they will  be moved.  T The episode may prove to be  a severe blow to the Beale  Quarries, which were already  shbrt of scows. With the loss of  the three they were chartering  from the Marpole Towing Company, it is probable they will  now have no scows at all to deliver rock supplies.  Vananda suffered no damage  in the gale;  While waiting our turn at the  station lunch counter, a nervous  customer breezed in and flung  five pennies on the counter:  "Give me a can opener,  please."

Surveys made  in two provinces revealed that  one out of every ten children  <examined was thin and underweight. Health authorities advise parents to make sure that  all the family lunches well.  Optometrist  510  West   Hastings  Street  VANCOUVER  B  at Gibson's  Landing  EACH  Friday and Saturday  Eyes Examined and Glasses  Fitted  PROSPERITY in Canada largely depends on the health of  the forest industries, which constitute a fifth to a quarter of  the nation's primary production.  And by far the largest proportion of the value of this production flows from the pulp and  paper industry.  These views were expressed  in a recent address by Vernon E.  Johnson, vice - president, and  Manager Woodlands, Canadian  International Paper Company,  who points out how his outfit  goes about conserving the forest  wealth of Canada.  "Our job is not. only to  cut  down trees, but to see that the  forests grow and produce a  maximum sustained harvest,"  he explained. "Every ten years,  we revise the inventory of bur  "Prompt Attention tp Maul Orders!"  ic RESTMORE FURNITURE:   Be4s, Springs, Mattresses  it GENERAL ELECTRIC APPLIANCES:   Radios,  Refrigerators and Washing Machines  ir FURNITURE:   Occasional Tables,  Cedar Chests, Lamps, Etc.

Provincial foresters study this  planj making suggestions and  alterations which they believe  are in the best long-term interest of the public.  As a result of careful cutting  methods, the pulp and paper industry is growing forests in  CanaSda a great deal more effective^ than is generally realized,  Mr. Johnson contended.  "Actually the growing of trees  is sirjiple. All that is required  is/ffb work with nature, not  a'gainst her," he explained.  "Scientific foresters throughout  the world now know that natural regeneration is not only  more economical but also more  efficient than planting trees.  Forests in Scandinavia which  have produced crops for centuries are managed on this  basis."  Woods managers realize that  they will need as big a tree crop  in 1967 as in 1947, and so it  happens that the pulp and paper  industry is now engaged in  struggling to implement a forest  policy aimed at a perpetual  yield.  Despite this program, it is  pointed out that the forest situation is serious.

Second, the menace  of the bugs���both insects and  firebugs ��� is ever present to  nullify industry's efforts to replenish wood harvests. They  jointly account for 27 per cent  of our annual forest depletion,  while pulp and paper mills, use  less than 17 per cent of the annual depletion.  "The public, as well as industrialists, has a great stake in the  maintenance of the forests because they provide direct employment, including seasonal  woods work for some 400,000  Canadians," said Mr. Johnson,  "and because $20 to $25 of every  $100 of Canadian wealth and  income of all kinds flows from  the forests."  He explained that Canada's  forest needs are actually few  and relatively simple ones.  First there should be complete  air surveys and maps of the forests. Second, Canada needs a  system of forest roads , to prevent wastage caused by fire in  u,noccupied forest areas. Thirdly, Canada should increase the  extent of her research work on  the forests and their products.;  "Federal and p r o v i n c i a 1  authorities have contributed  immeasurably to the development of agriculture, mines.and  fisheries. But the forests are  the forgotten resources," he  concluded. "For their preservation, and in order that they may  provide even greater bounties in  the future, they require as much  interest and attention as (that  given to less valuable national  resources."  the Legion whist drive the other  night Were Mr. and Mrs. F.
