Delay  Construction of  Sechelt Wharf  SECHELT���At a meeting called  on short notice to discuss the  feasability of recommending to  the Government that construction of the new wharf at Sechelt  be delayed until after the summer trade the thirty six people  present decided against doing  anything to hold up the work.  Chairman of the meeting, Mr.  H. Sawyer told the meeting that  information about the construction of the wharf had been received that was considered vital  to the residents of the district  and that he had been asked to  contact all the executives of the  different organizations and ask  them to attend. He then introduced Mr. E. Parr Pearson and  asked him to pass on to the  meeting the information that he  had received.  Mr. Pearson declared that the  contract had been let to a Victoria firm and that they had just  received verification of it three  days ago.  His source of information,  whom he said he preferred not  to name because the information  had been given to him in confidence, knew whereof he spoke Mr.  Pearson assured the meeting.  This information stated that the  contractor was not yet ready to  commence work on the wharf  and that it would probably not  be before the end of June that  the proper piling and other materials could be assembled to  commence the work.  Mr. Pearson urged the members ��� present to realize what it  could mean to the Sechelt district to have the wharf out all or  most of the summer. He pointed  out that proposed day trips of  the Union Steamships would be  cancelled. Many people planning  to come to Sechelt would not  find it convenient to get off the  boat at Davis Bay and try to find  their way to  Sechelt.  Mrs. Alice French declared  that she understood the contract  . had been let a month ago when  "Mr. James 'Sinclair made a public statement to that effect and  even stated that the wharf would  be completed and in use by July  1.  H. A. Newcomen pointed out  to the meeting that the Board of  Trade had put in a tremendous  amount of work in getting the  wharf situation to the point it  now was, and suggested that it  would be a mistake at this time  to do anything to hold up the  construction. He suggested, instead, that the meeting get behind the Board of Trade and  push the matter through without  delay.  . L. Hanson, local trucker, declared that as far as he was concerned he would rather bring in  twice as much freight via Davis  Bay now than he would in the  fall and winter months. He asked what assurance there would  be that the wharf could be put  in such repair that it would last  out the summer, and how much  these repairs would cost. He  estimated that the cost could  run  up to ten thousand  dollars.  Jim Parker, told the meeting  that he felt that the government  usually welcomes any suggestion  of delay but that if the government would, give some assurance that the dock would be kept  in repair ail summer and the  new dock started in September,  he would be in favour of asking  that the work be delayed until  then.  Capt. A. Johnston of Wilson  Creek spoke very strongly against the idea that any suggestion  of delay of the work should be  considered at this time. He suggested that the merchants of Sechelt were not dependent on the  tourist business nearly as much  as the business from the surrounding districts and felt that  the small loss the inconvenience  cf having the wharf out at this  time- might make would not compare to the possibility of not  getting a wharf at all. He suggested that the summer months  were chosen for construction  work for mahy reasons such as  tides, and weather and it would  be a mistake to try and delay  the construction of the new  wharf.  Myrtle   Allen   suggested    that  THE COAST NEWS. SECHELT, B. G.  Page Three  because of the short notice of the  meeting and the fact that the  executive of the Board of Trade  had not been advised it would  be folly to come to any decision  on the matter at this time. She  stated tha't a letter had been  received from the Government  to the effect that the work would  be started June first.  Ernie Barker declared that it  was too bad the roads and wharfs  committee of the Board of Trade  had not reported to the last three  Board of Trade meetings or this  matter could have been receiving some study and would not  have come with such a rush. He  declared that the meeting was  not representative of the organizations of the district.  "In fact," Mr. Barker declared "If it were not for the firemen who have come over after  their fire practice you would  only have about six people here."  Mr. Sawyer brought the meeting to conclusion by calling for  a vote on whether any delaying  action should be taken.    Thirty  POULTRY PARADE  The largest shipment of turkey poults from a single grower  ever to fly from Vancouver left  there recently aboard a T-CA  North Star. There were 8000  birds in a shipment destined for  the prairie provinces.  five voted in favour of leaving  the matter as it stood and one  voted for some action being taken to have the construction held  off until after the summer season.  <r  Agents for  LINES  PROMPT SERVICE  COURTEOUS   PILOTS  For Reservations  PHONE 5U or 5C2  PENINSULA CABS  B.C. AIRLINES  MAN WITH A  $20,000 KIT  OF TOOLS  British Columbia is unusual. So-many of  Its jobs are in "heavy industry". This means  someone must spend money on heavy, expensive tools of production. .  A carpenter or mechanic going on the job  provides his own kit of tools. But no one says  to the logger "Bring along your own railway locomotive and'Steam- shovel-" or to  the miner "don't forget your diesel compressor and pneumatic rock drill, Joe!"  Tb�� savings of thousands of investors  provide such tools. Take the case of the miner.  ki many a B. C mine so much in savings is at  risk that it amounts to more than $20,000  for each employee on the job. So each miner,  you might say, carries a $20,000 kit of tools.  In the pulp and paper industry the cost  of making jobs is higher still - more than  $30,000 a job.  We in B. C need more and more venture  capital - money willing to wait years for its  return. But risk money will only come if it is  confident that British Columbia is going to  continue to be a well-governed province  giving investors a square deal as it has done,  in the past.  m.   C.

(Held from last week)  THE   MEETING   at   the   Legion  Hall Thursday, May 5, 'was  composed of Cubs and Scouts.  It was the first meeting of the  Cubs in their new sixes and also  the first  Scout  meeting.  First I shall talk about the  Cubs. The Cubs first played their  games in which the Scouts took  part... and then they had their  study period:;',Mr. Morrison passed several Cubs on their first  star: tests.  - The ones that passed are David  Parish, Roy Walker and Don  MacDonald. Jimmy Catteral  passed his after the meeting last  week, so he would have his first  star before he joined the Scouts.  Now that David has his first  star he will be leader of the Red  Wolves, and Don leader of the  Black Wolves. The others are  Michael Whitaker of the Tawny  Wolves and Raymond Stickwell  of the Grey Wolves.  The Cubs have a new recuit���  Len Wigard.  Now for the Scout news. All  eight including myself were at  the meeting. We have selected  the name of Beaver Patrol for  our troop.  We also  decided  on the color  .��'lll__ill,l__illll__illil__illll__ill!l__ll!ll_-i!lll__lll!l__il!!l__i;i!lB_l'!lll__l  of the neckerchief, which is to  be sky blue with a white border. The Scouts also will have  the name of Sechelt Second,  which will be printed on a badge  and put on the top of the right  arm.  We Scouts being anxious to  raise money on cur own, have  decided to do odd jobs, such as  cutting grass, etc. If any local  readers wish, or know any one  who would like any odd jobs  done, please notify the following"  scouts: Sechelt district, John  Clayton; Porpoise Bay, Harry  Forbes; Selma, Michael Woods;  West Sechelt,  Jimmy  Catterall.

The  revenue lost    from    this  source would be replaced by an  adjustment of mineral and timber taxation.  POWER EXPROPRIATION  Mr. Gargrave outlined the  manner in which the Coalition  had entered into the electric  power field.  Three years ago the government had expropriated several  private companies and as yet  these had not been fully paid  for.  The question of compensation  was still being fought cut. Had  a CCF government taken such  action, the speaker said, the cries  would still be heard all over the  province.  The CCF felt that the government policy as far as the Power  Commission was concerned was  good, but the CCF propose that  the government should extend  its ownership in the power field  and take over the really wealthy  sources of power revenue such  as the B.C. Electric in order that  a decent program of rural electrification could be carried  through, partly on the profit  made from power distribution in  the thickly populated areas.  WOULD TAKE OVER  B.C. ELECTRIC  Mr. Gargrave said it was quite  understandable that Mr. A. E.  Grauer and people like him  should object loudly and strongly against the CCF policy because, said the speaker, one of  the first acts of a CCF government would be lo lake over completely the B.C.  Electric.  DENOUNCES ALUMINUM  AGREEMENT  Mr.   Gargrave  also  dealt with  the Aluminum Bill, pointing out  the tremendous powers taken by  the   government  to   endeavor  to  arrive at an agreement with the  Aluminum    Company    and    the  speaker  stated   that  while     the  CCF  desired    to    encourage  by  every  possible  means  the  entry  of the Aluminum Company into  B.C., they were definitely of the  opinion that  any agreement arrived at    with    such companies  should be placed before the legislature for ratification. This the  present government had refused  to do.  An interesting question period  concluded the meeting, chairman  of which was Mr. S. Cummings.  MORE ABOUT  SECHELT INDIANS  (Continued from Page 1)  lotted to Indian reservations  across the country, the -local  band has been successful in obtaining $8500 from the government toward the cost of building  these six houses.  The Sechelt and Squamish Indians have built up band funds  from stumpage charges, land  leases, slate and gravel pits,  etc., and have been self-supporting for many years. Because of  this progressive feature of these  bands, they have been unable to  obtain any share of the government grants usually made to Indians in Canada.  The Sechelt band has been cited as a model of progress  throughout the country. They  own over $100,000 in fishing  boats and gear alone.  A historical article on the Sechelt band and its progress in  the past two or three generations  is being" prepared by The Coast  news in co-operation with Clarence Joe, secretary of the Sechelt  band for the last three years.  This %rticle will be supported  with pictures of the old-timers  and other, matters of interest.  The article will be appearing in  about one month's time.  IN ORDER TO "create a solid front of opposition to the CCF  in the Mackenzie electoral district", L. S. Eckardt withdrew from the coalition candidacy race at a meeting of the  Progressive-Conservative  Association   last Thursday  evening.  Mr.  Eckardt, who  was chosen ������   by the association on April 19  as coalition candidate, called off  his participation in the campaign,  in favor of Batt Maclntyre, who  was named as the Liberal choice  for coalition candidate.  MR. ECKARDT'S STATEMENT  Said Mr. Eckardt:  "I deem it in the best interests of the district as a whole  to withdraw from the coalition  nomination race at this time.  "This is not a hasty decision  on my part. I have only arrived  at this conclusion after giving  the matter a great deal of  thought and after having discussed the situation thoroughly  with my executive and members  of the Mackenzie Riding Progressive Conservative Association.  "I feel that having taken this  step we can now move forward  as a solid and determined citizenry���determined to bring about  a 'New Deal' for the people of  this riding.  "I have every confidence in  Mr. Maclntyre as a coalition candidate, even apart from the fact  that he is a member in good  standing of the same Progressive Conservative Association to  which I belong, and he will have  the wholehearted support of myself and every progressive association in the riding."  Mr. Eckardt's gesture won him  the esteem of everyone present  at the packed meeting.  "In spite cf rumors to the contrary, Batt Maclntyre and mv-  self remain on the most friendly  terms. My part in the election bid  has been one of .utmost sincerity  and the drily reason. I'" allowed  my name to be put up from this  association was because no other  candidate could be found.  "At  the  time  of the  Progres- MORE ABOUT  s i v e    Conservative   nomination  meeting,  Mr. Maclntyre  had  no  intention of running.  ing to gain financially out of it.  It is just the desire to represent  the people of Mackenzie riding.  "I must state that I cannot  align myself with either the  Conservative or Liberal party. It  is my desire to stand as a straight  coalition choice, and to defeat  Mr. Gargrave.  "I believe the government we  have had in Victoria for the past  eight years is the best government we have ever known, and  I would like to see it continue,"  he said.  Superintendent Killed  In Plane Crash  T. McLEAN, 34, Vancouver, superintendent cf the Forbes Bay  Logging Co., was killed when a  light pontoon-equipped Fleet  Canuck plane he was travelling  in crashed into a 300-foot hill  at Homfray Channel, 28 miles  north of Powell River.  His pilot George Walter Lutz,  28, also of Vancouver, suffered  a broken leg and nose, and suffers from shock.  A logging camp near the scene  of the crash gave the first word  of the accident by telephoning  Sgt. O. L. Hall of the.provincial  police in Powell River, reporting  they had seen the plane dive into  the ground.  Sgt. Hall notified the RCAF  and dispatched a Diotte Air Taxi  plane from Powell River to in^  vestigate.  Upon the plane's return to  Powell River it was reported that  a ground party had reached the  area and that two other planes  were in the vicinity.  ONE GOAL IN MIND  "As I said before, I was the  willing horse, because I will do  everything in my power to defeat the CCF in this riding or  in any  other part of Canada.  "And with that goal in mind,  I will gladly go anywhere and  speak on behalf of Mr. Maclntyre," he concluded.  Mr. Maclntyre in rising to  reply   said:  "Prior to the Progressive-Conservative choice, Mr. Eckardt had  offered to support me if I wished  to run.  "At that time nothing was further from my mind. But in the  past few weeks the pressure  brought to bear on me changed  my mind. I never at any time  suggested to Larry that he withdraw. I did not seek this nomination.

Once the log dump has been  moved from its present location  in the Bay, steps could be taken  to beautify the harbor, clean up  the beaches, and develop the  many potentialities Gibsons has  as a beauty spot.  Mr. George Melrose, deputy  minister of lands, who attended  the meeting, stated that a decision would be made shortly as  to whether the loggers' request  for renewal of their lease on the  present . log dump would be  granted or not.  Apart from producing the largest payroll in the district, the  logging industry is clearing an  area from Gibsons to Roberts  Creek, back on a second level  that has been described as being  the finest farming country in  British Columbia.

Mr. and Mrs.. Mot-  tishaw, Jo-Anne arid Brian have  been such nice neighbors and  Mrs. Mottishaw has helped with  community affairs. The location  does not suit the little girl and  so a move is in order and we  shall also miss Mrs. Mottishaw  in the doctor's office where her  pleasant smile has been most  welcome when employed there.  Perhaps as they have made so  many friends we shall see' them  once in a while. Let's hope so,  anyway.  Sorry to hear that Minnie Sol-  berg has been quite ill. We hope  by the time this goes to press  she will be up and around again.  Mrs. W. McKissock, Gerry and  Maureen had quite a nice visit  in Vancouver and loco. Mr. McKissock went down on the weekend for the wedding of Gladys  Taylor, Mrs. McKissock's sister.  We hear it was a very wonderful wedding and little Maureen  was flowergirl. We know she  would look very pretty. We were  sorry to have missed this wedding. We were asked but through  a misunderstanding we did not  get there.  Gladys Taylor is well known  to most of us. The Taylors camped at Selma as children and she  has been ant employee of Woodwards stores for many years. She  is now Mrs. Ed Lingren. We wish  these young people long life and  a .happy one.  We hear that Jimmy Clarke,  nephew of Mrs. J. Parker, will  be on hand to run the Breeze  again this year for Mr,. J. Parker.  This boat is quite an asset to  the Inlet dwellers and the day  trips put on during the summer  months are something to look  forward to. We have always  promised ourselves one cf those  evening trips but haven't been  able to yet. Perhaps we will have  better luck this year.  Jean Richardson was here for  a few days. We understand the  cafe owned by her parents, Mr.  and Mrs. Jack Richardson, will  be opened for the season shortly.  t  We were indeed honored recently in being shown a remark- ���  able invention for which the  American and Canadian patents  have been obtained. It is an unusual device to enable the cigarette smoker to use any kind of  tobacco without papers and will  do away with a lot of wasted  tobacco as it can be smoked to  the very last shred and you  know how one smokes and  throws half of it away. It has  to be seen to be understood. It  is a very attractive affair and  should sell like hot cakes when  once it is on the market. The  inventor is Mr. Hauge, a newcomer in our community. He has  had several inventions before the  public and we wish him success  with this one.  Mr. and Mrs. Jack Neilson  were in Vancouver for a few  days and are now back at Sechelt Inn.  Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Weston and son Ronnie have moved  into the house formerly occupied  by Mrs. Janet Blake and Johnnie. Mrs. Blake is now employed  by T. Sleep Construction Co.,  Roberts Creek.  Congratulations are in order to  Mr. and Mrs. J. Plumridge of  Porpoise Bay Road on the birth  of a baby daughter.  We would like to welcome to  Sechelt two new men employed  by    B. C.

Stew Makes Best  Of Hot Meats  THERE IS no meat that tastes  any better than a piping hot,  well-cooked stew. Stew is so  often considered a .-��� necessary  evil as the last appearance 7of  the roast and treated accordingly, both in cooking and serving.  This is no doubt the reason for  lack of interest in stews in many  homes and for the title of "washday stew." Regardless of reports  to the contrary, the man of the  house invariably likes stews..  Savoury stews may be made  of fresh meat, cbmbihatipns _ of  raw and cooked meat or all cooked meat. Some stews are made,  of all meat, some of part meat  and part vegetables- In . other  countries the people enjoy goulash, straganoff, fricassee, gumbo  and many other delicious meat  dishes, all of which are actually  stews. Other meat and vegetable  mixtures sucha as chop suey,  braises, Swiss steak, and meat  pie are also in the stew class.  Browning meat for stew gives  it a richer flavor.'Vegetables are  at their best when cooked quickly and for a short time, so they  should never be added until the  meat is almost tender. When the  stew is cooked, the gravy should  be smooth and of good consistency. If the gravy is pale,  browning the flour will improve  the color. Sometimes a bouillon  cube adds extra flavor as well  as color. A little spicy meat  sauce, chili sauce or catsup also  adds zest to the stew.  ; Variations   in   serving   add   to  total lumber output.

Art of Training  Police Horses  GEORGIE HENSCHEL, well-  known broadcaster so often  heard in BBC programs, recently achieved her childhood's ambition, which was to ride a police  horse. She managed this when  she spent a morning seeing the  men and horses of the Mounted  Division of the Birmingham City  Police.  The great Midland city has 23  horses, most of them greys, except black Nigger and Alfred,  aged 23, who is now almost  snow-white with age. All are  geldings ahd most of them come  from Ireland, where a leading  veterinary surgeon in Dublin  keep his eyes open for young"  animals likely to grow up into  good  equine policemen.  This is. no mere phrase, for a  good pc lice horse must have the  same temperamental desire, for  law and order as his rider; when  he is trained the two share their  duties, horse and man becoming,  as far as is possible, a unit.  Most young horses    come    to  'Birmingham   broken   but   not  schooled and it takes six to nine  months to train them fully.  They have to learn to be controlled, collected and obedient  and to obey all orders instantly  and accurately. The horse learns  first to halt and then to stand  stone-still without fidgeting;  later he walks, trots and canters.

During those months The  Coast News was forwarded to  me at Victoria.  It was interesting to read about  the progress that is taking place  in the districts that are served  by The Coast News, especially  at Gibsons.  We regretted being unable to  attend that splendid VON concert which was such a wonderful success. We hope that these  talented residents of the district  will continue to delight future  audiences.  We would like to extend a personal welcome to the new editor,  Mr. George Haskins, of The  Coast News, and wish him success in his efforts to make the  paper a means of bringing the  residents of this Peninsula closer  together.  We hope that the circulation  of The Coast News grows greater as the communities it serves  grow larger.  During my recent visit to Victoria I was surprised on different occasions to meet so many  people who never heard of Gibsons or Granthams Landing of  Howe Sound.  The monthly meeting of' the  Harmony Group of the W.A. was  held on Monday, May 2, at the  home of Mrs. Clement. A good  attendance of members was present. The ladies are busy at present working on a variety of  articles for the sale of work and  garden party which is to be held  on July 7 at the home of Mrs.  T. Humphries. Details of the garden party will be pulished at a  later date.  As the spring advances the  number of visitors grows larger,  especially at the weekends.

Judging by the large number  of visitors to Grantham's Landing at the week-end, the summer  season is in full swing. Pleasure  boats of all kinds are coming and  going and the fishermen wfth  rod and reel are enjoying their  favorite sport. The small boys of  the district are all out in their  cwn particular dugout tree trunk  paddling around the wharf like  small voyageurs. One can imagine the thoughts and dreams of  these young adventurers, sailing  out in the sparkling waters.  Someday perhaps some of them  will go to see those "far away  places with strange sounding  names" and become ambassadors  of good will fro,-n Canada to  many lands. God bless them all.  A few years ago it would have  been possible for a correspondent to know the names of all the  visitors to Grantham's Landing,  but now one feels almost like a  stranger in their cwn village. So  manv more people have come  here to take up permanent residence Propertv changing hands  periodicallv. and new houses be-  in? built. We certainly live in a  growing community.

Behind  that dependable supply are thousands of Canadians engaged in  finding, producing, transporting, refining and marketing���working  with tools that cost hundreds of millions. But the investment in those  tools is your guarantee of adequate supply and minimum price.  FUdST/the oil must be found. This means (expensive equipment and the  risking of money in patient search. A single deep test drilling rig is  worth half a million dollars and one unsuccessful well in the Alberta  foothills has cost more than a million. Then when oil fields are found,  they must be developed; just to drill and equip one well in the Leduc  field costs about $100,000.  SECOND, crude oil must be transported to a refinery. Tank cars, pipe  lines and. ocean and lake tankers are the vehicles. A large pipe line  may cost $100,000 a mile; Imperial's largest tanker, now being  built, will cost more than $5 millions.  THIRD, the crude oil must be refined into hundreds of useful products.  Large and complex refining units are the workman's equipment  here. To meet your increasing needs for more and better products  Imperial since the war has added refining capacity to process an  extra 31,000 barrels per day. The cost was more than $30 millions.  FOURTH, the products must be marketed���this means they must be made  available to you when and where you need them. The tools of the  marketer are such things as service stations, truck fleets, coastal  "ships, barges, oil drums and tanks. This equipment, too, adds up  to millions. ,  Canadians are" using twice as much oil as in 1939. To help meet  your increasing needs Imperial has sought and found new fields,  built ships and pipe lines, erected new refinery units, installed new  marketing equipment. It costs more than twice as much to do these  things as before the war.  The money we needed to do these things came from borrowing, from  the sale of investments and from earnings put back into the business  after paying dividends.  This money is helping to provide the tools to bring you all the oil  you need���at the lowest possible price.  Bringing you oil is a big job���and a costly one.

EMPIRE BRASS MFG. CO. LIMITED  London  Hamilton    -    Toronto    -    Sudbury    -    Winnipeg  OWNING AND OPERATING  METALS LIMITED  Vancouver  VEC84  Calgary  Edmonton    -   Vancouver 's  t  ���Letters To The Ediiox  Scurrilous Journalism  Editor, Coast News:  DEAR SIR ��� The prominent  headline and contents of your  article in last week's Coast News,  describing the Legion turning  down a request from Sechelt  Volunteer Fire Fighters for the  use of the Legion Hall free of  charge for their social activities,  is in my opinion the most scurrilous exhibition of bad journalism ever published on the Peninsula.  The article tends to show the  Legion as opposed to aiding a  community effort and is casting  a slur on its integrity. As a newcomer to this district you would  be well advised to inquire into  the many worthy causes the Legion is supporting and its record  in the community with the splendid work carried out by its W.A.  The  cost of erecting this  hall  is borne by voluntary contributions from its members, many of  them war pensioners, and rentals  collected for the use of the hall  by other organizations. That the  Legion  did  not agree to supply  the   hall,   janitor  service,   lights,  etc., free of charge for the week-  lv  entertainments   proposed   by  the firefighters shows that they  are  cognizant  of their responsibilities to those who made it possible to have the hall erected. I  find   it   difficult   to   understand  that  a   charge   of  $3.00   for   the  use   of   the   hall  should    be     a  "shock"  to  the  members  of the  Fire Brigade who wish to have  a social evening, a matter of 20  cents apiece. Your logic that the  money   which   the   firemen   did  not have to pay for rental of a  hall could be used for purchase  of  firefighting   equipment   is   as  nonsensical as the idea of charging  the   Legion   $3.00   per   week  for fire protection.  I feel you owe the Canadian  Legion Branch No. 140 a public  apology for the article in question.  Yours very truly,  A. Johnston.  Ed's Note: Capt. Johnston has  made the same error that a great  many readers make. Hems appearing in ihe news columns of  The Coast News do not necessarily reflect the opinions of ihe  editor or ihe paper but are reports of happenings. We refer  him io ihe editorial on this subject on this page.-  Speed writing  Editor, The News,  SIR���As a regular reader of  your enterprising journal, I  feel impelled to congratulate you  on the keen insight and quick  intelligence displaved by your  associate editor. Mr. Reg Jones,  whose observations on conditions  in Saskatchewan appear in your  edition of April 22.  Even on a map, that province  is by no means small; -the actual  terrain is quite vast. Scattered  throughout those great stretches  of prairie, forest and wilderness  are quite a number of people.  I venture to sav that the average  man, confronted with the task  of reporting on social and economic conditions in such a large  area, with somewhat diversified  fields of endeavor, would be  guilty of hesitancy.  Nevertheless,    Mr.   Jones    was  able  to  arrive  in   Saskatchewan  on a Sunday morning (not usually the ideal day to observe business  conditions)   and   by nightfall  give   a  very  comprehensive  report    on    that great province  and its people. His report is the  more valuable as    it    may help  to correct the erroneous impression left bv manv visiters from  Saskatchewan,    and   correspondence with residents of that area.  These  people in their ignorance  had  thought    they    were  doing  pretty ^well,     a    view  which  is  now  sriown  to  be  quite  wrong.  There  are   perhaps   several  reasons for this false belief: in the  first   place,   thety   may   be   comparing their present status with  their   position     under     previous  governments, &nd allowing themselves to be misled by the marked   improvement;   in  the  second  place,   many   of   them   are   only  farmers,    lumberjacks,     railroad  workers,   etc.,   and  being  workers are naturally quite devoid of  brains.     It   is   indeed   fortunate  that   we   can   depend   for   guidance on the brilliant intellect of  Tuesday,.May Seventeenth, Nineteen Forty-Nine  ...  Population HouMed . but Peninsula schools neglected  THE SCHOOL population in this school area  has doubled over the past ten years, yet  there has only been slight additions to most  schools and none to others to accommodate  this swollen school population.  May 28 all ratepayers in Sechelt School  District 46 will have an opportunity to rectify this situation. A plebiscite for $605,000  for new schools and improvements to others  will be held on that date.  The School District 46 comprises schools  at Bowen Island, Port Mellon, Gibsons, Roberts  Creek, Sechelt, Halfmoon Bay, Silver Sands,  Madiera Park, Kleindale, Pender Harbour,  Irvine's Landing, Egmont, and Britain River.  The plebiscite will call for a new Junior-  Senior High School at Gibsons; a new three  room elementary school with activity room at  Roberts Creek; a south wing on the Sechelt  Superior School to provide two extra classrooms: and a six room consolidated school at  Madiera Park. While it is true that this will  still leave several areas in need of larger and  better schools���it is a start in the right  direction.  To those who are ratepayers in districts  where no improvements are planned it is well  to point out that an affirmative vote for the  plebiscite is a vote for an improved educational system in your district and a step toward  having your own local school improved as the  situation demands it. While it might appear  that the peed exists today, consider the need  of the areas getting new schools who have  been considered in much greater need than  your area.  To those who have no school age children and who fail to see the value of spending  money from which they will not directly benefit it must be pointed out that new schools in  the district mean a growing population, a  growing population means more improvements to the roads, the water systems, and  other public conveniences. Modern schools  automatically lift us from a second rate community to a progressive community, a progressive community is what industry and in-,  vestors look for when spending capital.  To those who have school age children  little advice is needed. Too well do you realize  the crying need for modernization of our  schools . . . too well are you aware of the  burden thrown on teachers who are attempting to work in un ventilated, overcrowded  classrooms with several different grades to  teach ... too well do you see the crying need  for adequate playgrounds, lunchrooms, washrooms, central heating etc. To you people little  encouragement is needed to get your "YES"  vote for the school plebiscite, especially when  it is realized that all these can be ours for less  than two cents per day added to our taxes.  Tourist Paradise Here  so let's tell everyone  THE NEARBY cities of Seattle and Vancouver  with over a million people could, and  should be the source of this Peninsula's largest  industry. Of that million people crowded into  such close quarters, sweltering in apartments  and jammed up "houses, it is safe to estimate  that seventy-five percent of them go away for  holidays each year. This peninsula offers everything those people are looking for on their  holidays. If they are looking for a place to relax and enjoy the fresh pure breezes that drift  in from, the sea, we have- it. If they are looking  for a spot where they can get in a boat, idly row  about and usually catch a nice big salmon, we  have it.  If they like to hike and explore uninhabited spots, climb mountains, study nature and  plant life, we have it.  If they like to drive a few miles to some  isolated lake or stream where they can catch  their limit of fighting cut-throat trout, we have  it.  In fact, there is practically nothing that  we can not offer the tourist except those things  he has left at home such as the crowds, the  close heat, the smoke and all the other unpleasant features of the city.  All these beauties are ready and waiting  to be enjoyed by an estimated three quarters of  a million people if they only knew about it.  Unlike most popular tourist resorts, we do"  not have to build anything, nor change anything, for Mother Nature has endowed us with  everything that the tourist could want.  The only job that lies before us is to let this  quarter million people know what we have.  This in itself is a big job, but not so big  that the united efforts of the industrious people  of this Peninsula cannot whip it.  There have been several suggestions made  as to how this should be done.  The soundest and most effective of these  is to have a film made of the trip from Horseshoe Bay over to Gibsons, thence.up the Peninsula touching on the many beauty spots,'and  areas of interest, all the way to Irvings Landing.  This film would be shown to Boards of  Trade and Service clubs in the two cities and  printed information would be available to  describe the scenic attractions and the other  many wonders of our Garden, of Eden.  There is no doubt that such a step would  result in an immediate knowledge and interest  in the Peninsula.  This interest could mean an annual influx  of several hundred thousand dollars per year.  We need those dollars so lets all work together for the culmination of the plan to have  the film made.  by Jack Scott  DEAR OLD FRANK  ��� I SEE BY the papers "that  the  New York publishing house  of Street & Smith has announced it will no longer publish]  "pulps" and among the various]  pieces of literature mentioned in|.|j  the story was the Frank Merri-fr  well series. ��� ^  It sp happens that a few weeksjfi  ago in a second-hand book storeXj  I came across an old and yel^|l  lowing copy of one of these clas-jgl  sics and took it home to try t<vjj  capture some boyhood memoriesfi|J  It cost me just exactly 10 cent_|f  The name of the book I sturm|A  bled across was "Frank Merrilij1  well's Shrewdness, or Brain ani'i  Brawn." It was "By Burt I|f  Standish, author of the famou^|  Merriwell Stories." The publishj|  ing date was  1900. jf  When I iopk ii io bed with xn||  my wife gave me the arched eycl||  brow treatment.

For the fir_.'|  couple of chapters I was altei)  nately amused and nostalgic. OJ|  page  60,   when  Frank was  su||  rounded by an ugly mob and ws|  asked  who he was,  he square]^1  his shoulders and announced itf  ringing tones, "I am Frank Me?i|  riwell  of  Yale,    captain  of  th|  Yale   football   eleven,   that   h^ljf  come here to play Princeton ifff  the big game tomorrow!" Therlf  was a great murmur and respecfj  ful falling back by the crowd.

Frank h~  g(|  Your Weekly Newspaper . . . it s community role  IN ANOTHER column of this paper under  Letters to the Editor, The Coast News is  taken to task for its handling of a news item  last week. In fact the writer is so incensed he  describes it as "The Most Scurrilous exhibition  ot bad journalism ever published oh the Peninsula." This is quite a broad statement and we  feel that now is the time to clarify a point  about the function of any newspaper.  In a general sense the local newspaper is  hired by its subscribers at so much per year to  bring them the news of what is going on in the  district. It is the policy of The Coast News to  cio just that and while so doing, make every  possible effort to ascertain that the information  it presents through its news columns is factual  ana iairly presented. Columns appearing under  a writer's name or nom-de-plume are the views  of that writer, not necessarily of the paper. Any  exceptions, to'any statements made in any section of the paper are always, welcomed through  the "Letters to the Editor" columns.  In the case in question the Coast News  merely reported what transpired at the meeting of a local organization. If the events that  ' occurred at that meeting are offensive to anyone, as it would appear they were in this case;  t__en surely the criticism should be directed at  the organization which offended���not at the  newspaper which merely reported what had  happened.  There will never be a news story in the  Coast News which "tends to show" anything���  a news story will report the facts as they occurred.  The Editorial columns, and correspondents'  columns, will from time to time endeavour to  persuade people to a certain line of thinking.  This we believe ig one of the functions of the  local paper; to sift the news and interpret it,  _hen present the editors findings and recommendations.  We sincerely hope readers will appreciate  the fact that "Logic", ideas, suggestions, etc.,  appearing in news stories of the Coast News  a_e not of the reporters origination, but are  tS.mpi'y being reported as statements that were,  made or ideas that were presented to an audi-.,  ence or a meeting. ;  had to kick AWAY from the  posts to score! m  "Such a kick for goal has sM  dom   been   seen   on   any. fielci|"  the   narrative   assured   us.

SEED TREATMENT  Increased gsi. initiation, healthier crops and 'greater yields may  be obtained by home gardeners  if treated seed, is sown when  seeding time come around. According to agricultural scientists,  there are more than 500 varieties  of plant diseases that can harm  flower, vegetable and farm crop  seeds. Their attacks can be reduced   or   stopped   altogether   if  seed is treated with a reliable  fungicide. Some packaged seed  being sold has already received  the treatment. Untreated seed  can easily be treated at home by  following the simple directions  given on the fungicide package.

HON   H    ANSCOMB  Minister of  Finance  In war and peaee-for eight years British Columbia has prospered in the hands of a Coalition  of the Liberal and Conservative parties. Your Coalition government embodies the best policies of  both parties and their representatives. It has been the best government in British Columbia's  entire history!  Greater British Columbia development than ever before has been achieved-social services,  public works, education, public power, municipal help and other programmes of an outstanding  nature are in effect. Your Coalition government stands on its record of achievement and promise. It offers itself for re-election so that it may continue its sound  administration of British Columbia's affairs.  Here are the principal features of the Coalition record:  HOSPITALIZATION���Worry and anxiety of hospital bills has  been banished in British Columbia. Hospitals have  been adequately financed���there is no further  need for public assistance.  SOCIAL SERVICES���British Columbia is the most progressive  province in social welfare���old age pensions are  the highest in Canada. British Columbia was the  first to augment federal old age pensions.  ROADS^���A thirty million dollar highway building programme  is underway���350 miles of main highway will be  ��� paved this year���the magnificent Hope-Princeton  highway will be open by Labor Day���the Pine  Pass Highway will open up the Peace River district  of B.C.���thus bringing another section of the  province into land communication with the coast.  EDUCATION���British Columbia now has the most advanced  educational policy in Canada���its school teachers  receive the highest average salaries. Vast improvements to school buildings and equipment have  been made���half the cost of new schools is paid  for by the government���school books are provided free up to the 6th grade and rental for  nominal amounts up to grade 12.  PUBLIC POWER���Electric power from Government plants is  supplied in 20 districts from Duncan, V.I. to Dawson  Creek, Peace River. Power development at Campbell River not only serves the people of that district  but has assured the establishment of new industries  such as pulp and paper plants at Alberni, Nanaimo  and elsewhere.  TRADE & INDUSTRY���British Columbia is Canada's third  .largest industrial province! Your Coalition government set up the British Columbia research council  ������brought the Columbia Cellulose Company here  ������interested the Aluminum Company of Canada in  surveys totalling $2,000,000.00 and a contemplated $300,000,000.00 expansion program in  British Columbia. Your Coalition government has an  industrial and trade representative in London���a  Regional Development division of the Department  of Trade and Industry.  FLOOD CONTROL- ���-Under the Fraser Valley Dyking  Board the emergency programme is now 85%  complete. $6,000,000.00 has already been provided by the Provincial and Federal governments.  MUNICIPAL FINANCIAL AID���Your Coalition government  has greatly increased its contribution to public  services���maintains all hospitals and contributes  one-third of new buildings costs���'has the best  school system in Canada and pays half the cost of  new buildings and equipment���contributes more  than any province to the teachers' superannuation  fund.  TH6SE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE PROGRESSIVE MEASURES TAKEN BY YOUR COALITION GOVERNMENT FOR THE BENIW  OF THE PEOPLE OF BRITISH COLUMBIA.  TO CONTINUE THIS PROGRESS AND RECEIVE THESE INDUSTRIAL, ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL BENEFITS, RETURN TO OFFICI  THE EFFICIENT, BUSINESS-LIKE ADMINISTRATION  OF THE COALITION  GOVERNMENT.

PROPOSED  HIGH  SCHOOL,  GIBSONS,  B.C.  Compare this modern well-designed Junior-Senior High School with present facilities. Imagine a classroom in a basement.  Sounds unbelievable in this day and age but that is exactly where one of the high school rooms at Gibsons is today. Whqt  sort of education do our young people.get in these circumstances? It is unnecessary to tell you���you know. That's why many  people move to other places when their children are of high school age.  One teacher cannot possibly teach four grades as called upon to do now���some subjects must of necessity be filled in  through correspondence���practical courses are now missing. The new high school for pupils from Port Mellon to Sechelt will  provide a complete academic high school curriculum.  ��� MACHINE SHOP WORK ��� LABORATORY FACILITIES  ��� HOME ECONOMICS ��� COMMERCIAL COURSES  ���   AUDITORIUM    (For the children during the day���for adults in the evening.)  AND IN ADDITION: 7  A room for the School Nurse, a kitchen and large lunch room and covered play area.  ��� ���_.���.'.>'* ^  Three Other School Units are Planned at  Sechelt, Roberts Creek and Madiera Park  Why do we need new sch  I TV  Our population is so spread out that oftly by consolidation can  we hope to have enough pupils to warrant all the facilities commonly associated with modern  teaching practice.  Our school population has nearly doubled in the past ten years.  New construction has lagged due to the scarcity of materials and  labour during the war years.  Good schools attract more people���maintain property values. The  total cost is $605,000 of which nearly half is paid by the Provincial  Government.  OUR SHARE IS ONLY $305,000.  What is the cost to the average taxpayer? On the average between  $5 and $7 per year.  Less than the cost of a good pair of shoes.  Teachers for small one room schools inadequately equipped are  hard to get and harder to hold.  Under present conditions teaching standards are difficult tb  maintain not counting the possibility of adopting swing shifts to  accommodate pre-school children about to start school.  In each new school an auditorium or activities room is provided  for the children during the day���for the adults in the evening  for meetings or social gatherings.  Approximately two thirds of the: money spent will be for labour  which will benefit the whole Peninsula.  All the new schools are of modern design wi,th light airy classrooms built on practical lines at a minimum of cost.  * '      ,s   - ���  In each case a nurse's room is provided and a kitchen to make  hot lunches possible. }  EXTRA!
