'The  letters  published  below  were sent to The News by the  Siechelt    Peninsula    Board    of  Tradey whose secretary, M. Al-  l|h, says: "It is apparent from  the text of these letters that the  residents   of   the   areas   above  those how supplied by the B.C.  Power Commission, are expected to manage indefinitely with-  -out-powev or light.    ~~~^~^J  y     "Until the road is completed  ; between Halfmoon Bay arid.the  : ��� existing   Sechelt-Pender   flar-  y hour road, along the coast route,  the Power Commission do not  intend extending their service  very much beyond its present  -'������limits.   -y ������'';. "���������.: ^���;V".;':;;;'f .'-  . "There is therefore little prospect of the road being completed," continues the Board of  Trade spokesman, "as stated in  the division' superintendents  letter."  ONLY ONE MILE  "Since the "time/ thesfe4?teplies^  to our enquiries were received, -  the whole question has been reviewed and the area gone over,"  the secretary adds, "and we find  that private enterprises have  already finished yth�� roael from  Halfmoon    Bay    tb    Welcbme  I Beach, leaving one mile only to  be completed yto Connect (with  the present Sechelt - Pender  Harbour highway,, ��� y  "If this road could be finished  (approximately   o^ of  road work! between 300 and 500  people would be potential users  of light ahd poweisj ^ This one  mile of unfinished y^ghway is .  the "bottle neck" that holds up  light and power for miles of the  peninsula area and retards the  ydevelopment | of the; district,  either Ite residential br commercial purposes."  TELEPHONE SERVICE  Excerpts frphi theiffirst letter  in question, written in July, reveal the efforts made by the  Secheli Board of Trade to dis- .  cover what appropriations were  being made by the, government  telegraph service;, for extension  of telephony facilities \ in; the  peninsula area;  "In partictilar this council is  perturbed in respect to the laying of a telephone line along the  existing highway between  Sechelt and Halfmoon Bay,  which it seems will necessarily  ���have to be abandoned in the  hear future when the coast line  road through Redroofs and Welcome Pass is completed," the ,  letter concludes.  R. G. Bishop, division superintendent of the government  telegraph service, made the fol*  lowing reply to the board:  "With reference to your letter  of the seventh instant. While  your new telephone facilities  were still in the engineering  stage and before any surveys  or blueprints were made, the  communication    engineer    was,  SEA Bus Lines, Ltd. announces  a slight. change in their  sailing schedule. The sea buses  will pick up passengers at  Granthams first ori their departures for Fisherman's Cove. This  change will bring advantages to  both ports of call. It will ensure seats for the passengers  leaving from Granthams, and  will give a straight run to Fisherman's for the larger number  boarding at Gibsons.  STUDY SOILS AND  REFORESTATSON  GIBSONS ���The   launch   "B.C.  _     _        Forest    Service"    made   this  established      pnhli�� 3j^J^y--~harbou^its portof-call recently.  exists    between    the     Captain George McHugh, skip-  instructed to go to Victoria and  check with the provincial government regarding prospects of  a highway being built between  Redroofs and Welcome Pass  along the coast route. At that  time we were assured that there  was no money available and  little prospects of the road being built in the future.  "Maintenance is a major item.  We cannot consistently build  communication lines into spots  where we know beforehand  . maintenance will be impractical  and circuit, outage excessive,  especially where a gazetted and  already  points involved.  "Approximately 30 years ago  the department built a communication system between  Gibson's Landing and Port Mellon on the strength of appropriate advice that a highway would  be immediately built along the  route of the department's right-  of-way. That line is still in  operation and is being maintained. The road is not yet  built.  "If and when a highway is  built    between    Redroofs    and  ^elcome.PassiitjWjU^be a com-  ~paratively> reasy^raatteifrrto build  a spur line from either end to  take care of local communication requirements."  A second letter sent by the  Board of Trade to the minister  of public works ^requested details of the government program  ������yr.e.lative..''-.'-i6' the maintenance,  improvement and extension of  roads in the area from Wilson  Creek to Irvines Landing.  A reply from H. C. Atiderson,  chief engineer, fdllowS:y  "lam directed to acknowledge  receipt bf your letter of the 7th  instant with respect to road expenditures made iri your district  and in reply regret having to  advise you it is not possible to  supply you with: this informa-  '���; tion, biit all the details will apr  pear   in  the   minister's  annual  , report to be presented to the  legislature at the next session of  the house."  Gulf Wing and Movie  Pases Won at Social  HALFMOON BAY ��� The six-  month pass on the Gulf Wing  was won by Horace Johnson of  Universal Timber-Products, and  the six-month pass on the  movies was won by E. Heskin  of Selma Park. Their names  were drawn Iduring the social  evening held at Redroofs Mori-  day.  This and several future events  will be arranged to assist the  building oif Marian hall which  will soon be open for use. The  committee wish to thahk Jim  Cooper for his cd-operation in  placing Redroofs at their disposal. Everyone present had a  good time particularly the children. The refreshments were  served by Mrs. Gus Schneider,  Mrs. Carl Miniato and Miss  Mary Evans. These social evenings will be sponsored by St.  Vincent's Missions.  ner of the vessel^ stated that the  visit was in the nature of a  dual purpose business trip.  Two groups,were carried on  the ship on this trip, soil cul-  turists and forest engineers.  The first group is making a  study of soils throughout the  coast with the purpose of determining what trees to reforest  in each partictilar area to obtain  maximum results. The second  group is visiting the experimental patches of this area, one  of which is on the Wilson Road,  May Have  lobster Industry  AN  INDICATION that  British  Columbia may soon have a  lobster industry was shown this  week in reports that these shell  fish are living and reproducing  in Pacific coast waters.  The lobsters were imported  from the.Atlantic more than a  year ago, and planted near  Lasquiti Island by B. C. Packers  Ltd.  So far it has been established  that the colony is living and  thriving and has produced eggs.  If the young multiply successfully from now on it will mean  a new fishing industry for B.C.  Fisheries officials estimate it  will take several years to prove  conclusively that the experiment will succeed. But, they  say the fact that the, crustaceans  are reproducing is trie first major success.     ;  Reader Asks Advice  In Bear Situation  Editor, Coast News.

S. WfcGILL  PORT MEILLON ��� Our Labor  Day celebration, sponsored by  the local union, 297, was at huge  success. The president,; Mr.  Chris Wood, arid members  worked very hard to make the  closing event of the season one  to be remembered by all.  The stand for the crowning of  the queen was decorated in Sorg  Pulp colors by the Wpirien's  Service Club, and we would  like to give them our y��fce of  thanks.  Our retiring queen, Miss E.  Arrowsmith, crowned Miss M.  Stevensy queen for the coming  year. They were gowned in  ; long white'dresses \ ahd carried  bouquets of asters. The ladies-  in-waiting were Shirley Arrow-  smith and Anita D'Huost; flower girls were Sharon D'Arcy and  Sharon Nordman and all were  wearing white dresses and  carrying bouquets of daisies.  The crown bearer dressed in a  white uniform was little Gordon y Wilson. A'presentation to  the queen was made by Mr.  Chris Wood.  It was a pleasure to have Mr.  H. Lewis, generaly manager of  Sorg: Prilp Co., present prizes  and address the co-i-munity:  Mrs. yLewis, Miss Nancy Lewis  and Mr. Pronger, professor of  languages at the U.B.C. also attended.* ���;'  '������;.Mr. C. Wood gave an address  on behalf of Port Mellon.  .'���;. Prizes were donated for those  haying the most points in the  sports events: Lottie Hostland  and Marry Williamson, seniors;  Olga W a le. n k y iand BUlie  Nicholls, juniors. 7The gameis of  chance were well attended. Free  ice cream, pop and hot zdQg��  went to all the children,    -y  A softball game between .New  Westminster Army and Navy  Vets and Port Mellon was playr  ed at 6:30 p.m. Oiir boys lost  to the visitors 12 to 2. A dance  in the evening ended a wonderful day.  SQUAftllSK &AKER  PASSES TUESDAY  THE  DEATH  occurred   at his  Vancouyer home, Sept. 16, of  William     James    Prendergast,  : formerly of Squamish.  Operating the bakery in  Squamish for many years, Mr.  Prendergast retired about two  years agb. He was a member  of Mount Garibaldi Lodge No.  127, A.F. & A.M., of Squamish.  Funeral services were held on  -Friday, Sept. 19/ interment being in Masonic Cemetery, Burnaby.  INDUSTRIAL expansion has  been so great that demand for  workers now exceeds the supply. The usual seasonal upswing in employment was delayed this year because of the  late spring. As a result, seasonal  pressure was intensified during-  July and early August in all industries, vand the accompanying  demand for workers has created  *  a labor^shortage of almost wartime proportions.  There were 93,000 unplaced  ^applicants registered with the  : irrational Employment Service  at^iAugust 14. Applicants are  2,0(mf|^;than the vacancies on  file; thisfiabpr shortage .will become even more acute next  month since peak activity is not  usually reached until the end  of; September when agriculture,  manufacturing, construction and  transportation are working at  top capacity. 'The. August 14  figure for unplaced applicants  -is;l9,0d0beldW the July 10 level,  and 56,000 less than one year  ago. By sex, there were 65,000  male and 28,000 female applicants, as against 79,000 and 33,-  000, respectively, a month ago.  Unfilled vacancies totalled  95,000 at August 14, as compared with 91,000 at July 10. By  sex, there were 62,000 unfilled  vacancies for men and 33,000 for  women.  SUITABLE JOBS  The current situation spotlights the problem of matching  workers with the jobs available.  Geographical dislocation in a  country the size of Canada is  one"��� great obstacle^���.while industries^ in ; Ontario arid Quebec  ; need workers desperately^ a  surplus of labour still exists in  the Maritime and Pacific  regions.  Another factor is that much  of the labour surplus now is  composed of partially-qualified, physically unfit or older  workers, who do not meet employers' specifications. Primary  industries throughout the country are campaigning for workers, but so few are available for  this type of employment that  immigration policies are warmly supported as a solution.  In the Pacific region there  were 14,000 unplaced applicants  and 7,000 unfilled vacancies at  August 14. Seasonable expansion in primary industries,,  which support the bulk of this  region's employment, is straining manpower resources. The  excellent state of labour man-  yagemerit relations has enabled:  moist negotiations to be completed without work stoppages,,  and this has contributed greatly  to the high level of general employment.  The mining industry is desperately in need of workers; if  several hundred hardrock miners could be obtained, they  would create jobs for many  hundreds of unskilled men.  Training programs instituted by  a few large operator*, are making some contribution to the  skilled ; labour pool, but high  turnover to a degree offsets this  effort. The farm labour situation is well under control.  8��*S��Slc  0 9 TEHC&OIA Page Two  THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay, B. ���..

The other  day, while doing some work on  his float, C. P. Smith, Harbormaster, noticed something  splashing in the water near him.  His son, Harry, local Union  Steamships agent, arrived on  the scene and succeeded in  hauling a fish from the water  with a pike pole. A Cohoe, it  had apparently been attempting  to dislodge a hook that was embedded in its mouth. It weighed 27% pounds.

The  Summit General store opened  for business on Thursday, September 11. The fact that West  Sechelt has now a sufficient  population to warrant the opening of a store indicates the  steady growth of West Sechelt  during the past few years.

Brooker (Buster)  gave us a verypleasant surprise at the week-end when he  called, bringing a motion picture on the life of a chinchilla.  It shows the little animal from  one day old to two years, the  cute little mannerisms, their  feeding, their sand boxes where  they take their bath, and their  wheels for exercising ���- altogether a very entertaining subject.  Had I known we were in for  this treat I certainly would have  invited a few friends. However,  Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Crowston  were with me and Mrs. Borr^-  daile, also Miss Marchant, so we  didn't do so badly. Mr. Brooker  told us as we went along with  the picture, all about the raising and care of these valuable  little creatures. I was especially intrigued as I am so opposed  to trapping and realize that all  this fur farming will, to a certain extent, do away with the  other cruel method of obtaining furs. Oh yes, I wear a fur  coat but it's ranch raised you  may be sure. Mr. Brooker is  associated with Austen Fur  Farms, and I am sure will furnish data to anyone interested  in this new project.  St. Hilda's Church Guild has  presented Mrs. A. A. French  with the sum of $10 to purchase books for the school  library as a gift from the guild.  This is to be a yearly event and  the choice' of books was left to ���  Mrs. French. These ladies are  again to be complimented as  being first in an effort of this  kind. It is to be hoped that  other organiations will make a  donation.

Well last  week-end I saw an apple tree  that no one could sit under unless he was Tom Thumb. At the  home of Mr. and Mrs. Charlie  Jordon (Charlie and Aunty to  us all) it was loaded down with  fruit. Every branch was propped up and every twig had its  quota of fruit. Sorry we did not  get a picture. Mrs. Borradaile  with her four dogs, and myself  with my one, decided we would  explore some o'f the old trails  THE COAST NEWS/ Halfmoon Bay, B. C.  during this winter. We had a  wonderful time. We came out  oh a flat rock and surveyed the  countryside and then took to the  bush. The first trail goes along  from Earl French's place and  comes out at the Legion Hall.  Many a time have I walked this  with Mr. French Senior 30 years  ago when I used to walk over  for the: mail, newly out from  England and expecting a bear  behind every bush. Mr. French  thought he would give me a  thrill one day and rose up behind a log. I let out one scream  and fell over backwards, and  cried all the way home. The  poor old man was awfully sorry  but that didn't mean a thing to  men then. I certainly lost seven  years growth. However I have  made up for it since, if not in  length in width.
