University of  British Columbia were subjects  touched upon by Hon. Dr. G."M.  Weir, when winding up the debate in reply to the speech from  the throne in the provincial  legislature during the past  week.  Some of the more important  matters dealt with in his speech  are as follows:  Adoption of Cameron report  on education by government  benefited school districts, by  approximately $2,500,000.  ., School building program  throughout province estimated  at $20,000,000 during next ten  years.  Provincial government will  bear approximately $10,000,000  of cost of construction.  Appointment of a commission  on equalization of assessments is  essential, if inequalities in financing education are to be removed.  Government has set aside $1,-  500,000 for medical building and  $100,000 for annual operating  expenses.  Vancouver Normal School  suggested as suitable building  for medical faculty owing to its  close proximity to General Hospital and St. Paul's Hospital.  -- -^Transfer of Normal School  students to U.B.C. campus would-,  t?e .necessitated - aridi would- be  ; desirable.  Grounds of Normal School  have space for training hospital  when necessity arises.  /Uncier certain proposals from  medical experts, it would cost  $25,000 per medical student per  year,* .  : Decision regarding establishment of medical faculty is one  solely for university authorities  to make.  Neither   McGill  nor  Toronto  Universities ever  had so  gen-  yerous treatment as the provision  made by government for University of British Columbia.  Question reduced to one of a  medical faculty now with a  modest beginning or none at all  for five to ten years.  Hon; Dr. Weir alluded to the  speech from the throne and the  premier's policy speech as "two  great monuments of statesmanship in splendid isolation, unmarked by the shafts ^/criticism���4he two most weighty and  illuminatory speeches in the history oi the legislature since  Confederation."  yy  Couple to Celebrate  Golden Anniversary  GB^rm^^ Li^ING-^VTr.  and Mrs. Francis Farrow will  celebrate the golden anniversary  of their wedding day on Sunday, March 16. Both Mr. and  Mrs. Farrow were born in Ontario and were married at  Miami, Manitoba on March 16,  1897, where they farmed until  coming to Vancouver in 1909, *  retiring to Granthams Landing  10 years ago.  They had one daughter, Pearl,  Mrs. H. T. Gamie, who died four  years ago. There are two grandchildren, Dorothy Frances and  Raymond Warren Gamie, of  Vancouver. Mr. Gamie is: an  Odd Fellow, being a member of  North Vancouver Lodge No. 55,  first joining the order 43 years  3$_  -���*���  PUBLISHED  BY THE   COAST  NEWS,  LIMITED  Business Office: Half Moon Bay, B.C.

Friday, March 14, 1947 5c Per Copy. $2.50 Per Year, by Mail  Instalment Loan  Plan Saving  To Home Owners  BUYING for cash usually offers  substantial savings. Many  housewives are now consulting  with their husbands and buying  long-awaited and much-needed  furniture, slip covers, curtains,  drapes and labor-saving household appliances.  The Bank of Montreal's Personal Loan financing plan makes  buying for cash quite simple.  At a cost of only 17 cents a  month you can obtain a $100  loan, repayable over twelve  months. This permits a very  substantial saving. You can  borrow less or more for shorter  or longer periods; the cost is  proportionately the same.  If you can provide security,  the rate of interest is less, e.g.:  if you have Dominion of Canada Bonds the rate on the loan  is Zy2 per cent on any unpaid  balance; similarly if you have  life insurance you pay*-4% per  cent on a loan up to the cash  surrender value of the policy.  Payments on such loans can be  made to suit your convenience.

Carson in his budget speech in the  Legislature last week included $50,000 for the Sechelt area.  It is understood that this is ���   for new road construction.  Total amount alloted for the  entire province highways is  $6,701,000, and will cover  200 miles of reconstruction.  Figures submitted by the government showed expenditures  on highways exceeded automobile revenue from all sources by  815;000 in 1945 and by $655,000  in 1946. It is expected, the report said, that in the current  year the same will occur.  Other highlights of the speech  were as follows:  trade Board Urges  Resident  GIBSONS   LANDING���Regular  meeting of the Gibsons Landing and District Board of Trade  was held Friday, February 28.  The delegates who had been  to Victoria reported oh their  interview with Hon. E. C. Carson and Mr. Gargrave. They reported that both were sympathetic to the delegation's ap^  peal for improved roads. It was  further decided on this subject  to send a letter to Herbert Gargrave asking for definite information concerning, Mr. Carson's  proposed visit to inspect peninsula roads.

Gibsons io Ask  Garbage Vole  GIBSONS  LANDING ���Village  commissioners will be asked  to take a plebiscite on garbage  disposal at the fall election.  Gibsons Landing Ratepayers'  Association contends a disposal  plan is badly needed in the community, arguing that with a  rapidly increasing population,  garbage is becoming a menace.  Expansion of the community  brought up the question of zoning to ensure proper residential  development. G. Bickstaff and  W. Skellett were appointed to  interview the commissioners on  this subject.  A letter has been sent to the  department of transport asking  that lights be placed on Home  Island and on the beacon marking the shoal in Gibsons Harbor.  The letter pointed to large increase in water traffic and said  ^herife^elflhair^  in locating Home Island.  FALLS IN HOLE.  SELMA PARK ��� Marion Willows, four-year-old daughter  of Mr. and.Mrs. F. Willows, narrowly escaped serious injury  last week when she fell down  an uncovered five-foot pole  hole.

GIBSONS LANDING���A chrysanthemum society is to be  formed at Gibsons Landing by  the ratepayers executive. The  society will be under direction  of G. Chatt, retired Vancouver  court house gardener.  It is hoped to hold a show in  October.  Eric Inglis, chairman of the  Firemen's Protective Association reports an appropriation  from council of more than $300  towards equipment for fire  fighting. A dance to be held-  March 8 will be the second firemen's ball in aid of fire fighting  equipment.  The zoning bylaw will be  brought up for further discussion at next general meeting of  the ratepayers Thursday.  A TB X-ray film is to be  shown at the general meeting.

Hunt of  Vancouver are at their home at  Redroofs for a week.  B.C. Pulp Undersoil*  Wide Expansion Program  In the old days a 12-year-old  boy was six so he could travel  at half fare. Now he is 16 so  he can drive Pop's car.  Artificial lakes will be created near Athens, Greece, to  supply, water and ejectric power  to the city.  A LARGE expansion program,  which will save both in wood  consumption and operating cost,  is now under way by British  Columbia Pulp & Paper Company Limited.  Officials report that the Woodfibre mill, on Howe Sound,  about 32 miles north of Vancouver, improvements include the  installation of a specially-adapted hydraulic barking plant, a  whole log chipper to take logs  up to 40 inches in diameter,  modern high pressure boilers  and additions to electric power  generating capacity.  These improvements, which  will step up capacity and cut  costs, are expected to be largely completed and in operation  by the end of this year.  STEP UP QUALITY  Woodfibre is one of the two  mills owned by the company.  The other is at Port Alice, Vancouver Island.  As a result of a $1,500,000 improvement program just prior to  the war, products of both mills  were stepped up in quality to  the highest grades of rayon and  %  bond pulpis. Extensions made  then and later increased combined mill capacity to the present total production of 135,000  tons a year.  These two mills are the only  ones in B.C. equipped to produce special quality dissolving  pulp required for the manufacture of rayon yarns and staple  fibre, officials report.  Despite the loggers' strike last  year average daily rate of production for the entire period  was at about the same level as  1945, or about 80 per cent of  capacity.  ���VJ80131A  fl��!3NIA0HcI Page Two  THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay, B.

By its construction,  accommodation at the hospital  will be increased roughly 80 per  cent. Inasmuch as at last weekend the institution was at capacity, the effort appears to be  worth while.  Only $2,000 more is needed to  give the society directors authority to go ahead and at a meeting last Saturday night it was  felt that the citizens of the  area will have sufficient pride  in their own localities to subscribe the necessary funds, a  good part of which is already  promised. Under the chairmanship of Mrs. Frank Lee, a committee of ladies was organized  to canvass for the needed balance.  The contractor engaged by the  Society is working on plans and  specifications and- has been up  to look over the site for the staff  quarters.  Directors of the society hope  that residents of the area including Jervis Inlet will materially assist in the final drive.  The staff house on completion Will be turned over to the  Columbia Coast Mission, owners  of the hospital. It is anticipated  that should the society wish to  take over the entire property at  a future date on the original  terms ($1) this will be done as  Mission officials during negotiations have co-operated in  every possible way toward that  end. _:���������  5William :ScOttiaf is president;  A; R.

Friday- March 14, 1947  THE CURRENT suggestion to change the name  of Gibsons Landing ... or rather, to shorten  it . . . isyone which should get full support,  ���even at the expense of some nostalgia. As a  matter of fact, there are a great many names  on the peninsula which might well be officially  shortened, since the common usage is of less  than half the proper title. We have Gibsons  Landing, Pender Harbour, Halfmoon Bay, Buccaneer Bay, Hopkins Landing, and many more.  There is no misunderstanding of the original  reasons for naming these places. Like Topsy,  most of them just growed; others were no doubt  tagged without a great deal of thought to the  time when they would be busy centres rather  than little coves.  Perhaps we, as publishers, are a little keener  than most to see some reasonable abbreviations  effected. Week after week we type and print  two and three names where one would be just  as significant, if not more so. We are not  inclined to statistics, but an efficiency expert  could no doubt show us an impressive total of  wasted hours at the end of any given year  from this cause alone. And that must apply to  all other businesses in the peninsula.  Whatever move is made toward this end,  The News believes it should have full support.  We are entirely aware that some will not favor,  probably for reasons of old associations or sentiment, the alteration or shortening of a place-  name, and we respect the feelings of this  minority, nevertheless feeling that they, too.  will understand the desire of the majority for  names somewhat less cumbersome.  Bible Reading  WHEN THEY were come to the place, which is  called. Calvary, there they crucified Him,  and the malefactors, one on the right hand,  and the other on the left. Then said Jesus,  Father, forgive them; for they know not what  they do. And they parted His raiment, and  east lots.       ^  And one of the malefactors which were hanged^ railed on Him, saying, ,;if? Thou, be Christ,  save Thyself and lis.; But'tlie other answering  rebuked him, saying, Dost Inotthoii fear God,  seeing thou art in the same condemnation?  And we indeed justly; for we receive the due  reward of our deeds: but this Man hath done  nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord,  remember me when Thou comest into Thy  kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily, I  say unto thee, today shalt thou be with Me  in paradise.  St. Luke, 23:33,34,39-43  9  THE TROLLER SPEAKS  I'm a lonely old troller and my boat is my home,  So I take 'long my castle wherever I roam;  She's a twenty-eight-footer and needing new  paint,  And her engine would* wear on the nerves of  a saint;  One window is broken and the stove smokes  like hell,  And she creaks and she groans when we hit a  dead swell;  And I grimly think as I empty my pipe,  This fishing and baching is sure a dog's life.  But when I'm at anchor in this snug little cove,  I've mended the window and cleaned out the  stove.  Stowed away in the lock is tea and tobacco,  And bacon, and sugar, and flour.  And on the low tide I get enough clams  To make me a swell pot of chowder.  I've traded books with a blasted gillnetter;  And I'm all hooked up for this cold, winter  weather;  So I says to myself, as I stoke up my pipe,  This fishing and baching is a pretty good life.  When the Blue Backs come finning along in  May, ,   .      .  I'll up with the anchor and hie me away  From Lasquitito Scotch Fir and on to the Sound,  Or any old place where there's fish to be found,  For I harvest the ocean and oft-times in vain,  From dawn until dusk, in sunshine and in rain.  Itfs long weary hours, but counting all loss,  'Tis a free open life and I'm my own boss.  When I see  these  stump  ranchers toil  with  powder and tools  I feel in my heart they're a pack of old fools,  For I would not exchange my good little boat  For fifty stump ranches and a woman to boot;  And thankful I am as I stoke up my pipe,  I'm tied up to neither a farm or a wife.)

Twining and  Mrs. M. Malins. The object of  these social evening's which are  to be held bi-monthly is to form  a young people's society with a  Christian background. It is  open to members of every /religious denomination and it is  hoped the attendance will grow.  The evening consisted of a singsong, dance, quiz and short address by Rev. Twining.

ALTERATIONS  DRESSMAKING  DARNING  NEXT   fO   GIBSONS  SHOE RENEW  for housewives because the  Beatty Automatic does away  with 95 per cent of the manual  labor previously needed to wash  and damp-dry clothes.  The only labor required to  operate the Beatty Automatic  Washer is that of placing the  clothes in the machine, adding  soap and water, and turning a  switch. Within a few minutes  the clothes will have been thoroughly washed, rinsed and  damp-dried ready for hanging  on the line. The washer even  drains and cleans automatically  ���no soap scum to clean out.  The new revolutionary feature of the Beatty Automatic  is that the rinsing and drying  is performed by hydraulic pressure. No installation costs are  incurred in installing the washer  in the home. It is vibrationless  and can be used in the laundry,  kitchen or bathjoom without  any special foundation. No  special plumbing or water heaters required. The washer can  be attached to taps as easily as  a garden hose; and water can  be heated on a stove if the home  is not equipped with a water  heater.  Simple construction is another  feature of the Beatty Automatic.  It has lesfs than half the number  of parts as in ordinary wringer  and washer.

With slightly improved road  conditions the Roberts Creek  school bus^was able to get down  to Gibsons to bring the students  to school. Quite a holiday you  kids had, but then who's kicking?  At a recent school board meeting the final changing of our  school's name came about. The  name has been changed from  Howe Sound United School to  Gibsons Landing Elementary  School. The reason that the  word elementary is in the name  is that sometime in the near  future a new high school will  be built on the eleven-acre  strip of land which the board  has; The present school will  then be only an elementary  school. The new location will  be further up the hill from this  school, along the Sechelt highway. A certain amount of land  clearing has already been done.  There is yet a considerable lot  to be done before the building  will be seen.  HERE AND THERE  A House B meeting was held  last Thursday in Mr. Elliott's  room. The topic for discussion  was the high school party.  It's nice to see Miss New back  again to teach her primary  class. We are all glad to hear  that you are feeling much better, Miss New.  The latest epidemic sweeping  the school grounds is skippinjg  ropes and alleys. Quit your  fighting Murray and Ted and  you might win a few alleys.  Baseball is/really the thing filling the spare time of most kids  now.  Merilyn Foley left Gibsons  Landings School-last* ��� iveek to  live at Campbell River. We  were-all sorry to see you leave  Merilyn. Good luck to you  there!  We're bound to see some  pretty hefty looking fellows  around the school soon. With  the Junior Rifle Club with  wrestling and" archery as well,  organized by John Bertram, the  fellows will be getting some  worth while recreation from  these sports. Then you .can call  that stuff in your arm "muscle"!  Miss New's primary class is  now having the time of their  lives. New furniture consisting  of chairs and tables was bought  for the class.
