NESTMAN  COUNCIL MEETING  AT THE council meeting two bylaws received their first reading.  First was the by-law to cover  Municipal float No- 1, and second  to amend remuneration to commissioners was read for first  time.  Municipal float No. 1 by-law  was amended to read:  No person to store any boat of  any kind on said Float No. 1 or  the approaches thereto.  No person shall place or cause  to be placed any freight, merchandise or goods on said Float  No. 1 or the approaches thereto,  and allow such freight, merchandise or gbods to remain  thereon for a period of more than  six hours.  No person shall tie or make fast  to the said Float No. 1 or the  approaches thereto any logs, timbers, or booms of any description.  Salary by-law amendments:  That commissioners be paid a remuneration of $100 a year, because of increased population,  extra work and added finances,  making the council job a near  full-time proposition, the position should have an incentive to  project new life, and much more  interest' into the same.  Letter from Ratepayers association from President R- McNicol requesting clarification of  council's statement re the new  firehall,   where   to   build,     and  probable costs, and what the  council intends to do about the  same, was discussed. The clerk,  was instructed to write the association and advise them that at  this time nothing further had  been done on same, word being  awaited from* local voluntary  firemen, and matter fully taken  up by commissioners at a council  meeting. Permits issued to Dick  Fitchett for extension of the  Builders supply sheds.  Meeting by^ council on February 8 at 10 a.m. for purpose of  court of revision, in the municipal office.

But the kids are  really having a grand time of it,  and they tell me that some of the  oldsters are tobogganing down  the Sechelt road hill, and having  a whale of a time.  Cars are finding that hill  pretty tuff going, its even working a hardship on the cows.  Johnny, our milkman, sez the  cows won't give the milk, so we  are being cut down too. Whole  area with that beautiful blanket  of snow, and the sun shining so  brilliantly over it, looked like a  picture postcard today, if one  could only consider the beauty of  it, and not the distress behind it  all- ,"      '  We are very lucky that our  power is holding out here, water  is just holding its own in our  water works, and we're keeping  our fingers crossed.  Noticed our constable packing  home a real large black dog. He  iniorms me it's a Labrador retriever.- Hope he's the gentle  type, Pete.  They tell me there's a few.  cases of chicken pox around the  school, so look out, Mom.  By the way I nearly forgot, has  any one happened to see a very  nice gray part Persian female cat  with a sort of a white collar of  lur under her neck. If you have  seen her around, how about telling her it's about time she came  home, we miss her and would  certainly like to get her back. No  reward, folks, jusflt our very-  grateful thanks.

Beet sugar production started  in Canada in 1902 after Bismarck  as Chancellor of Prussia, had  subsidized the production in Ms  country because of the value of  the beet in the. crop rotation.  That nice new VON car from  Sechelt, with Miss Irving at the  wheel, came out second best in a  collision with Godfrey's logging  truck on the Sechelt hill the  other day. No one hurt, but the  car.

NESBITT  VICTORIA ��� (Special    to    The  News) ��� As Speaker of the  legislature, John Hart will round  out a notable career in the public  service of British Columbia,  started that day in 1916 when he  was first elected to the legislature in Victoria. -  Next year he was appointed to  the cabinet as minister of finance  in the Brewster government and  he served in that portfolio until  1924, when he quit public life.  He came back in 1933, again  became minister of finance and  remained in that position until  1946 when, in the interests of  Coalition, he gave up the portfolio to Conservative chieftain  Hon. Herbert Anscomb.  From   December   1941   to   December 1947 he was premier.   He  has never known political defeat  at the polls.  NO   POLITICAL   OPINIONS  As Speaker (he gets $1,800  sessional allowance, plus his  $3,000 indemnity) Mr. Hart will  have to remain silent in legislative debate. He may voice no  political opinions. This will make  the government happy, for last  session cabinet ministers were  just a bit 'jumpy that Mr. Hart  might get up and oppose the  sales tax.  It's no* secret he doesn't think  the sales .tax necessary. When he  was- premier he would have nothing to do with it- He accepted it  last year rather than pain the  government and. give aid and  comfort to the CCF. This session, Mr. Hart will feel relieved  that he won't have to make any  speech and perhaps say things  the government wouldn't like so  eminent a person to say.  MOST PLEASED  The government will be most  pleased to have Mr. Hart as the  _.lent Speaker, keeping law and  order in the house, giving decisions on weighty matters of  parliamentary procedure, just  listening to interminable  speeches. There's nothing quite  -o embarrassing'- to a government  as an ex-premier. iori ^ the^ffide  lines. One never 'knbws; what an  ex-premier, from the wealth of  his experience,  might  blurt out.  AURA  OF DIGNITY     ~   '    '     .  As Mr. Speaker, Mr. Hart will  be surrounded by an aura of dignity.  THe will have a suite of chambers in the legislative buildings  ���his own room gracious with  mahogany tables and desks and  crimson silk couches and deep  leather chairs and a red brick  fireplace, with a bust of Laurier  on'the mantle. Here he and his  wife may entertain distinguished  visitors at tea, from a special service of. delicate china.  On occasion, Some rare old  sherry or port may be served. A  special table will be reserved for  him in the legislative dining  room and each day at luncheon  he will be host to a few members  of the legislature ��� mixing up  representatives of the various  parties, for Mr. Speaker is supposed to have no political bias.  Each afternoon Mr.; Hart. will  don'his black robes arid tricorn  hat and a little procession will  form, led by , the sergeantrat-.  arms carrying the mace.       .  Next comes Mr. Speaker j followed by the clerk of the house  and the law clerk.

THE COAST NEWS, SECHELT, B.C.  Friday,  Fab.   \),   1949  'S  ���Letters To The Editor  Likes Coast News,  Friday, February Eleventh, Nineteen Forty-nine  A PeilillSllla Amitlllaitee ..the need is all too obvious  DURING this-^winter the need for service  of  an ambulance has arisen several times on  the Peninsula.  There have been cases where residents  have suffered broken bones and other injuries  and have had to make their way to hospital  in the best manner they could.  One lady suffered a fractured hip and  the best transportation available was the Union Steamship truck: several times persons  needing medical or surgical treatment have  been in the Roberts Creek area and have had  to be taken to Gibsons in a panel truck.  Surely this is not the best sort of transportation for a ^seriously ill person.  Recently it was reported the need for an  ambulance to serve the heeds of the Peninsula  was  not cozi^idered essential.  This seems rather a short-sighted attitude.  The Peninusla is a large area and the territory served by two doctors at Gibsons and  a resident doctor at the hospital at Pender  Harbor,  58, miles,, awjay  needs  the  sevices  of  an ambulance.  We have been indeed fortunate so far in  being able to get injured or sick persons to  hospital; but sooner or later accidents are going to occur which will have tragic endings  through   lack   of  proper  ambulance   facilities.  The obvious need for an ambulance is a  project that the planners of the future welfare  of the Peninsula should give, further serious  thought before it is too late.  It may be recalled that The Coast News  has on several occasions mentioned specific  cases where an ambulance or station wagon  equipped with first aid kit and stretcher would  have been invaluable in preventing pain and  saving time which is so important to those unfortunate enough to be stricken with illness or  who meet with accidents.  It is our sincere hope that those who are  trying to obtain these facilities continue their  drive to obtain this equipment which will repay us many-fold in protection and the relief  of suffering.  Too Old ��l 45? ..'. they are a regrettable loss to Society  WISE ADAM Smith in i776 said that fixed  capital-"also consists pf the acquired and  useful abilities of rail the inhabitants or members of society. The acquisition of such talents  by the maintenance of the acquirer during his  education, study or appenticeship, always costs  a real expense,* which is a< capital fixed and  realized- as i. .were, in his person. Those talents as they make'a part of his fortune, so do  they likewise^ of *hat of the society, to which  he belongs."   -!       f  .- -   " l P     V,. ! '  This pjijigent remainder that a person's  abilities are part, of the fortune of society is  rapidly being forgotten, today by discriminatory practices whicb^deny employment to a  worker over-45 years%ld.  Such practice is ^causing a regrettable  loss to society. /  It is estimated that the present worth of  $ye s^pss   fyt^r^ effirilqgs. of a  worker, at,#5  with normal life expectancy and earning  $1,500 per year is $16,925.  His further contribution in goods or services to the national income- adds up to a total  of many thousands of dollars as the cost of  his  enforced unemployment.  Fitting the older worker into gainful employment is becoming more urgent every year  as the age composition of our population  changes.  In 1971, it is estimated that more than five  million Canadians will be over 45 years of age.  At that time, 36 percent of the population  will be in this age group as compared to 26  percent today.

We are back in Vancouver for  the winter and expect to start  at Sechelt in April and meet  some of the old friends.

Roads Require (���  Drainage as  Well as Surfacing  Box 30, Sechelt, B.C.,  Feb. 1, 1949  THE EDITOR,  The Coast News.  Dear Sir:  The early winter rains have  washed away a lot of good intentions, including the gravel, or  near gravel which was applied  to our roads. A few people have  had the temerity to point out  the deplorable conditions which  prevail.  On the other hand the upholders of the status quo would feei  more comfortable if citizens were  to forego their democratic right  to make these conditions more  generally known. Perhaps more  European peasants would be acceptable here providing they were  more subservient than Canadians.  It appears that our own citizens  are not humble enough.  It does not require an engineer to realize that our roads require drainage as well as surfacing.  Adding a mixture of rounded  stones and subsoil merely thickens the soup. Anyone can voice  an opinion, but the construction  of a modern highway is an engineering project.  Such an undertaking does not  lie within the "sacred" precincts  of political legerdemain, which  can only appropriate the money  accruing as a result of interfering  with the operation of industry.  Engineering practices are based  upon facts whereas opinions.are  the stock in trade_ ofv.pofiticians.  The collecting ctf��� ppimons at  regular intervals is a spectacular  game- Witness the. recent: election to the south of us.  An alternative game is that of  taxation. It is not sp spectacular  Tas an election, but!^ it is more  lucrative to collect, and spend the  wages of man-hours employed in  industry. ��� X. ���/���X-vTX..''

The machines which  constitute our productive equipment were built, and are being  operated by technicians.

As regards the construction of  highways, do we lack material?  No. Do we lack equipment? No.  Do we lack trained personnel?  No. Do we lack an adequate  means of distributing goods and  services?

Chairman J. P- Dallos maintained that the 24-hour period  was too short to enable the fishermen to attend to all their business ;and restock their boats, and  Commissioners McKela and Mc-  Guffie agreed.  %  It was decided to notify the  Department of their approval of  the schedule with the stipulation  that the free period be set at  48 hours.\  By "SLIM'  In 1948 .the value of Canada's  field crops set an all-time record  of $1,595,000,000.  *._.

The Public Health Nurse would  be responsible for all school vis-   ��� :���  iting in  the area���which,  under  the new plan, could be extended  to cover Egmont and Britain  River schools, as the Provincial  Health Department assumes the  cost of transportation in the  nursing area.  It also provides special equipment such as baby scales, nursing bags.  All in all it would seem to be  a good move since it would increase the mobility of the VON  nurse to remain in the district  and would provide greater coverage for the schools in the whole  area.  The quota for the VON members to, raise in the area would  be reduced from the former  figure of some $3500 to approximately $2,200 since the same basic grants will be given by lhe  government to the organization.  This reduction would indeed  be a great help to the auxiliaries  who found the quotas set for the  past years' operation could only  be met by the dint of some really  hard work.

'    ;vrl:-iiocai^gentSi^;  Longest Cold  Spell in History  Of Peninsula  THE WEATHERMAN has finally  thrown the book at the Peninsula.  There have been winters when  the mercury sagged lower than  it  has  to date this  winter,  but  old-timers   are  agreed  that  this  .one is a dilly!  In fact, it has set an all-time  record for the longest period of  sustained frigidity  in this  area.  For the past 10 weeks, the district has taken just about every  type of weather in the winter  catalogue including snow, sleet,  blizzards and frost.  For a while before this thing  got to be a habit, a few of the  pioneers were wont to belittle  the weatherman's efforts.  Way back in 1915 (or was  it '14) the icicles under the eaves  got so long that they reached  from the roof to the ground.  But now even the oldest old-  timer will admit that they can't  remember such a prolonged  spell of consistently cold weather as that which has descended upon the district.  This period of cold actually  has been with us relentlessly for  just about 90 days and has also  established a record for the  least amount of precipitation in  the district.  January was the record month  in this respect with a low of .55  inches and the total precipitation  from October to January was  18.44  inches.  MORE ABOUT ...

Members gave  their assurance that they will  contribute voluntary- labor necessary to enlarge the cemetery, >  and help in every way possible.'  After- the next cemetery* meeting report will be given to Board,  and Mr. Telford the president,  will be asked to attend and give  his report.  The Post Office came in for  quite some heated discussion,  and information is to be obtained by Dr. Anderson,, chairman  of the Trade and Industry dept.,  who will report at next meeting.  Prospects of obtaining a new  Post Office,- and some satisfactory post office hours, and other  matters have been quite a subject for discussion at past meetings.  It was decided to co-operate  with teachers at the school, and  help to back the May Day celebrations and the crowning of the  May Queen.  A dance will be held for funds  for this project, and a permanent fund set up to be known as  May Queen fund.  The dance on Feb. 12 to be  held at Bal's hall, will be one of  the highlights of the season, in  aid bf the proposed beach td  be built at the Municipal wharf.  The Machigonne will cali at  Port Mellon and Gambier to  bring the folks from these places  to the dance, also a representative group expected down from  Sechelt, and the Creek.

Page Seven  -e->  Oibsons School Hews  By   MALDY   THOMAS  ONE OF the big sport events  which was to come off this  week, was the basketball game  between Gibsons High School  and Squamish High School.  The Gibson's team intended to  charter the sea bus on Saturday  night to go up to .Squamish, but  it seems that something went  wrong for the hall at Squamish  could not be reserved for that  night.  If everything goes well there  will be a game at Squamish in  three weeks. The Gibsons All-  Statf s were also going up with the  High School that night to play  another team at Squamish,  * The bi-annual Student Council  elections will be, or by the-time  this appears in print, have been  held-at" Gibsons High School on  Mondaj^.5J^huary 31.

So goes the old saying and I  guess I have been sitting around  as you will see by the lack of  news.  Mrs. Ralph Murray was advised by cable of the death of her  sister who resided in South  Africa.  Incidently if you are in doubt  about the adverse weather conditions being world' wide, Mrs.  Murray helps you^a little by disclosing the fact that South Africans have had a real pea-soup  fog lasting for several weeks.  Thousands of the inhabitants  have never seen fog before.  Mr. Lashbrook, we are sorry to  report, is feeling pretty sick  these days, and would welcome  any of our local residents who  would care to visit him. He has  acquired a housekeeper in the  person of Mrs. Dickson of Vancouver.   We hope she will enjoy  her stay among our people.  .    *    ��  Mrs. Mills returned to Vancouver after a short stay at Wilson  has a good membership already.  * *    *  Miss Dobbin, the grade two  teacher, was sick last week with  the   flu.     Mrs.   Ablett   was   her  substitute.  * ��    ��  On Friday afternoon the N.F.B.  pictures1 were shown before the  school children. On January 28  they were shown at the Roberts  Creek  Community Hall,   and at  the Gibsons hall on February 2.  * *    *  On Friday, January 28, Frances  Chapelle was away from school,  so her boy-friend (so-called)  Barry Stewart, brought in a  neighbor's dog.  He set the poor pooch up in  Frances' seaf and proceeded to  call it Franky.  When Don Graham bent over  to pet it, Barry threatened to  sock-Don inthe nose for "making  passes at my girl."  Finally Barry said in disgust  to the - dog, "We'll. have to part  Frances, your ears are too big."���  I wonder how devoted some of  these girls can be. Maybe it's  dog instinct.

Mr. and Mrs. Scattergood of  Porpoise Bay have been feeding hundreds of birds in this  cold spell, we are told it is a  very wonderful sight to see as  the   birds   are   very   tame.  A loss to the dog colony of  Sechelt is Sharkey who died of  old age recently. We all knew  Sharkey very well he was quite  a character and was adopted by  Donald Morcraft who feels his  loss very much.  Sharkey had a very sad beginning. Owned by a Indian  .master at Pender Harbor this  poor animal suffered much abuse and Mr. Joe Spangler bought  the; dog to get it away. He was  devoted to Joe and when Joe  moved away he left him at Roberts Creek and Sharkey came all  the way from the Creek back  to the old home and the Mar-  crofts  gave   him  shelter.   .  We know if this paper falls into the hands of Mrs. Mary.Spangler she will be glad to know  that Sharkey was well cared  for in his old age and is now in  the   Happy   Hunting  Grounds.  ���And whilst we are speaking  of dogs to you who want to find  a home for a pet you cannot  keep, first check on the new  owner. Better to have your pet  killed by a kind hand which he  trusts than to give him away to  Creek with her daughters.  * *    *  Mrs. Gibbons, who recently resided on the Davies estate, is at  present residing with her daughter at Chilliwack, and is not expected to return until weather  conditions are more suitable for  the return trip. We are sorry to  report that Mr. Stewart Henderson of Wilson Creek post office is  not progressing as favorably as  was expected.  ���' Mrs. Henderson received a  wire advising her to take the trip  to Shaughnessey Hospital last  week-end.

THE RESIDENTS of Selma  Park extend their deepest  sympathy to Mr. A. Byers, in  the recent death of his wife.  Mrs. Byjers, more familiarly  known to us as Aunt Mary. She  will be greatly missed by her  friends here.  So, you think its cold! Here  are some excerpts from the diary  of an old time resident of New  Westminster, whose late wife  was a friend of mine.  January 31, 1893; 20 below,  and the following day, 10 below.  That cold spell lasted from the  middle of January to February  14.  Men had to cut ice on the river to create a channel for the  ferry to bring produce from the  south shore.  . February 1891: snowing on the  11th and 12th���stayed till the  28th. Made grand sleighing and  coasting on the hills, (not. many  traffic problems in those days.)  January 6, 1899: 9 degrees  above and skating on Burnaby  Lake.  January 1, 1901: Heavy snowfall, and from February 5 to 9  skating on Burnaby Lake.  January 1, 1906: Snowed all of  January. Fraser River frozen  over, skating on the North Arm.  So you see that what we have  had, was an average winter  fifty years ago, but I hope history   isn't   repeating   itself.

They are laboring under a policy of, too  little, and too late. This policy  also epitomizes the entire monetary and political structure. It  has little to offer by way of a  solution of our major problems.  Not only is it unable tp produce  our goods and services; but it has  also failed to distribute these after they have been produced.  Price depends upon scarcity;  but an abundance cannot be distributed by means of money. The  abortive attempt to distribute the  abundance which exists here, denotes a mode of operation which -  is completely out of tune with  the age in which we are living.  The march of events has ushered  in a new era which has outmoded  a Price System mode of operation. Who can deny that we are  living in an era of abundance, and  that many are still clinging to a  concept of scarcity? (Pass the  margarine.)  As a result of changing our  tools of production, we have passed out of an age of scarcity into  an era of abundance. Hand tool  methods have been replaced by  our entire productive mechanism,  which constitutes a high energy  civilization.  Hand tool methods cannot produce anything but scarcity. Price  and politics cannot distribute  anything but scarcity. Formerly  these two were- our travelling  companions. JHowever they become just so much excess baggage when we are confronted  with the need for an equable  distribution in an era of abundance.  A high energy civilization can Jjj  only continue to exist as long  as it conforms to natural laws.  The violation of these laws on a  national scale, has resulted in  chaotic conditions and social unrest.
