 I PROVINCIAL ]  T.W'E E  .      By     .-  BILL SUTHERLAND  Editor, The Coast News,  I HAVE jus.t returned from  al week spent in the interior  where I met two of the most  foolhardy drivers, a blizzard,  a crap game, roa:1s like skating .rinks and memories of  bygone years.  Of . ail    these),   things,    the  memories were best.  For those  of you who  like  to. take  a  little   fling  in   the  market I brought back a fair  Tip from deep in the mountain  , chain   surrounding   Retallac���  buy Viola Mack. According to  men   who   know   base   metals  best   it's   Viola;   Mack to   go  f better than three  for one..  The two drivers I mentioned  are named Irwin Butcher and  Jim Trainor. They drive that  s/Kaslo - New Denver goat trail,  in blinding snow and howling  wind on glassy roads with  drops of 2.000,ft, nudging  them every inch of the wayr  Taxi drivers, they are used  | to dangers of the trail and the  /"help" of miners who.have  ; drunk not wisely but exceptionally well-froni the brewer's  /point of yiew. In spite of their  jexperience, they still find themselves 'taking five hours to .  jdrive seven miles - this s.ome-  [times three time, a day for $5  la trip. r: Once was enough for  |neV:'t:r/:y::.r ;::������������; ;;v- ;:*v;  j V-.Of ������^.i^iie;**^  j driven over,' iinliruoling some of  '��� Europe's woi'St and much of  'America's famed trails, the  j poad to Kaslo from the Slocan  j fras them all beat for simple,  ^ear provoking situations.

They were *-���  jplways willing to help pull us  i nut of the  ditch  or the snow  bank. ,  Believe it or. not, we also  elped them haul their big  railer and tanker units back  n the hard surface as well.  /.

Authorized as Second Class Mail, Post Office Department, Ottawa5'*.  a  No Sacrifices Today  IT HAS BEEN brought.to our attention that certain papers are  carrying stories about a debate on the matter of; wharves  between one of this papers publishers and James Sinclair, M.P.  This paper has never recieved any invitation to debate.  There is no intention on the part of the (publishers "to- argue in  public what should properly \- and we assure you that it will -  be debated on the floor of the House of Parliament .during next  session. . \  To our not so limited knowledge in these matters it has  never, and it cannot be, the duty of anyone on a paper's staff  to defend, either verbally or with muscle the attitude of the  paper. ���  A paper is an entity, with a mind of its own. It is something  in a community which is beyond and bigger than any of the publishers or employees.  It may be imagined what influence a coerced paper would  have on a community - how little good it could do if it were  suspect of fear or prejudice.  We seriously doubt Mr Sinclair's intent to challenge any  member of the paper's staff to a.debate on something which he  knows is foolish.  We have a letter* on, file wherein he tells the Coast News  that warves are on the way out, so it is harly to be believed.he  would want to discuss something upon which both the Coast  News and Mr Sinclair agree on paper.  If challenge there was, we suppose it is about Mr Sinclair's  threat to cancel advertising for this paper.  v Fdr the" very Tew people whVhave not already made irpntheir  minds on this matter, we can always^ reprint the letter - it speaks  volumes in itself.-  We take this opportunity of' offering James Sinclair full  license to these pages - including the front- for his views, if  he should feel that the Coast News has been unfair.  Harsh, we may have been. Harsh we may again be. But  honest we will always attempt to be. Mr Sinclair is welcome to>  this paper in- order to give a wider spread to his view. We  believe he is entitled to that.  We are also> of the belief we are entitled to criticize our  public ffgures without having to immediately send forth an  employee as sacrifice to a hurt persons ego'.  School Board Beaten  uous Orders  GIBSONS. The -School Board is in a quandary.  Faced with a directive from Victoria regarding submission  of estimates from the coming year, both the Board and Inspector  C. Frederickson find themselves unable to understand the  meaning or intent of the letter.  Sinclair Will Discuss Much  At Many Local Meetings  GIBSONS. James Sinclair M.P..will address a series of meetings  along the Peninsula in order to discuss matters of import to  the nation and to this area. -,  Half moon Bay will be the  first gathering place when .the  popular M.P. will address interested persons in Redroots  Hall, Monday at 8 P.M. .  .Next port of call will be a  meeting, sponsored by the  Sechelt and District Liberal  Association in the Legion Hall  at S p.m. January 16.  On January 17 -he is slated  to discuss .several matters of  local interest,; in BaPs Hall at  8 p.m.  '., According to Seehelt Liberal  ���Association  President  Captain  Andrew Johnston, Mr Sinclair  has spoken at several gatherings throughout the Coast -  Capilano riding.

According to the Department  of Education, the local board  must' submit estimates' which  carry the figures $84,547. The  Board is not aware of where  this ambigous figure is supposed to appear.  Closest comparative figure  from last year's estimates is  'the sum requisitioned by ,the  Board 'amounting to $99,410.  said a Board spokesman.

Objection by an unnamed Vancouver group, to the  sale by; Gibson Brothers  of Sea Bus Lines  to  Vancouver  Dock Company, may delay start of the car ferry service from  Horseshoe Bay to Gibsons.          A    public    hearing    on    the  question of extending present  ipasscn-ger carrying franchise-  of Sea Bus Lines to include  vehicular traffic is slated for  the, nealr f >afture, according  to information from Vancouver,  It is believed objection to  Vancouver Dock Company's  application for an extended  franchise, will be raised by the  group Ayhich had been in the  car ferry negotiations and had  then, to all intents and purposes dropped out.  The fact that Public Utilities  Commission has not yet authorized, sale of Sea Bus Lines  to Victoria Dock Company  further complicates the picture.  The Victoria company now  has a ship in Vancouver harbour, which, following regulation changes, could be. used  as the car erry.  Various    boards    of    trade  throughout ���"the  Peninsula  are.  rumoured !ito   he   considering  taking a stand oh the question.  which so vitally concerns this  area.  Appointment of W. G. Courtney to  position of District Traffic and Sales  Manager at Victoria has been announced by W. J. Dalby, Regional  Manager of T. C. A. A native of  v/ictoria, Mr. Courtney has for the  i��ast three years been company  representative in Bermuda. He had  ixtensive experience in the transforation industry prior to joining  l\ C.

In this manner did John  Bunyan describe the work o��  friends and the volunteer fire  brigade during the flash fire  which badly scorched the back  of his home.  . My friends were there in a  matter of seconds following  the blaze which licked up the  verendah wall. The fire brigade, comlete with apparatus  was there, immediately after.  If it had "it uV been for the whole  hearted cooperation of everyone, I would have lost my  home, the ferry mate said;  ."I  am  very,  appreciative".  Madeira Park  School Change  MADEIRA PARK. Another  change has been made in  ���this community's school site.  Following suggestion of ex  'School Boa'd' Member A.E.  Bitch ey, the architect has approved and drawn plans for,  construction, of a school on top  of bedrock instead of alongside the out cropping as had  been previously planned.  ���Dirt from on top of the shelf  can be used 'as fill in trying to  drain the wot bottomed land.  Diversion of one creek so it  ���will run along the eastern  boundary of the property will  also help drain the area.  Revision   of   the  plan   may  lessen cost of the building.  Creek School  Operatin  GIBSONS. Roberts Creek School may be open for classes sometime ''early in March".  According to L.O. McCarter, manager of the construction  company and Harold Cullerne, architect, "the work is progressing favourably."  absolute   minimum   needs.  There is still no indication  of how near th actuaO. c-st will  come to the target price set by  the School Board.  Payment has. been requested  on the first "progress report  on the new building situated  just east of the settlement on  the lower road.  "W'atcr for the partially built  school is still "up in the air".  '���This problem will have to bo  thrashed out ' inimedni'.'ely",  said a school, authority.  It may be recalled that  water indications were found  at -several points on the school  property by a water diviner  armed with  a  forked twig.  The School Board Aviil reconsider the whole water problem "at once". 2  The Coast News    '        Thursday January 11 1951  Simple Simoh  The Gar Ferry  NEWS  THAT  all  is  not  well with  the  car  ferry deal is probably the most disheartening and disconcerting  it has been  our lot  to swallow.  According to. information, the Victoria  Dock Company bought the passenger carrying franchise of Sea Bus Lines. And it is believed the Machigonne is now under charter  to the dock company.  This is what makes the new move so hard  to understand. We realize and defend the  right of any organization to have a public  hearing on -such an important matter as this  car ferry will be. Public Utilities Commission,  our watchdog in these matters, will probably  call the hearing during t,he last few days of  this month. This means delay, - something  which, now, would just about break the wave  of optimism aand revived feeling of progress  which has swept this area.  It is hard to understand the reason behind  this move of the unnamed group.  Nearly four months ago, the same organization started the ball rolling on the  ferry  question but then, as far as Victoria and the  publicj   ;werc   concerned,    the   matter    was.  dropped.  Victoria Dock Company was in the picture  at the same time but this concern actually  bought out Sea Bus Lines which practically  corrals the passenger jtraffic between Gibsons  and Horseshoe Bay. The company brings in  at least one ship,first part of a $3 million investment in the project, prepares to start  operation - it is unreasonable to believe it was  doing all these things without at least tacit  approval from Victoria, and now this second  group wishes to get into the  act.  It is still not a fact that the Victoria  Dock Company will have to apply to ,the Commission- for a vehicle carrying license. An  extension of the present franchise in order  to cover wheeled vehicles could be sufficient.  This is a matter vital to every person on  the Sechelt Peninsula and our neighbours to  the north in the pulp and paper townships.  We cannot too strongly urge every concerned board of trade to roll up its sleeves and  get down ito business in finding out 'the truth  and also assuring that.this area's interest be-  properly aired at the coming Public Utilities  Commission hearing. .  At the hearing there will be two interested parties, the Victoria Dock Company  and the group desirous of getting the franchise. It is absolutely essential that the most  concerned - residents of this area - be represented at least by someone with a watching  brief. ��� '  We would suggest that an executive  meeting of all boards should delegate a representative in order to draw a brief which  could be aired >at the P.U.C. meeting if such  were necessary.  It is hardly politic for us to/take-sides  in this fight which , seems "to be shaping up  between the giants. But it is politic for us to  watch and protect our own interests. This  latter should be done with more vehemence  than some of our boards have shown in the  past. ���!     i  Gibsons Board of Trade clan certainly  do with a good jolt. It of all Boards, should  lead the way in this matter, but irrespective  of who leads, it is imperative that we have at  least two. spokesmen at the meeting.  It may be well to remember that Powell  River and its adjacent municipalities tare more  than casually interested in this, deal. The  various interested groups in that area should  also be represented at the hearing.  This is probably the most important, event  in the long ye'ars of our history. It would be '  nothing less  than a  crime  against  our  own  children if    we were to leave this car ferry  quarrel to resolve itself. -  It is our duty to posterity to take more;  than a passing interest. v  If ever there has been a time for a wide  'awake, concerted effort, led by fighting delegations from aroused trade bodies, it is now.  For once in our lives/'let us do enough  before it is too late.  c��� ��7u��<;*v4 -57  NOW   is heating time  V- .   *:���''-���'������**���>  ���$���'1    i  f -<* ijrci  Ken Alexander  Talks On Russia  GIBSONS.

We get our most useful timber out of  average sized trees of 2 to 3 ft. in diameter, which is natural  in the sense of their being in prime growth. The clear lumber  out of such a tree is rather valuable as its uses due to the peculiarities of its structure are far too numerous to mention here.  It should be mentioned here too that not more than 10 to 15  percent clear is a general ithing in most of the trees cut. The run  of commons that we get are what is most generaally used in  house bu'lding and its natural sulphur yellow color has quits  an effect if measures are taken to preserve it by varnishing or  some such preservative. The 'natural color fades gradually to  a dull gray, but only after quite a lapse of time. There are a few  local wood hobbyists who value it very highly, and some of  their creations are to be highly commended. I am sure they,  would not object to my mentioning at least two of the foremost,  Mr P. Downes of Roberts Creek, and Mr T. Turner of Davis Bay.

The Atlantic powers, also  agreed to set up a defence production board with powers to "expand and accelerate" armament production.

In [this critical period of the  next year, before the"United  'Nations have built up strength  to curb agression in the world,  we must be well informed as  to the extent of the industrial  strength of the U.S.S.R. and  the countries associated with  them.  It is amazng to see in our  great daily papers, the information that Russia cannot carry  on any extended military agression because of tthe lack of  oil.    This    writer    wishes    to  ���make plain that any statement,  \ of this nature is wishful thinking on the part of anyone and  it will do no good to hope for  a collapse of Russian armed  forces as happened to Germany  through lack of oil.  Here  are the latest figures  we have, on the U.S.S.R. production for the first half of the  year of 1950. Some 132.7 million barrels of crude oil compared  with   a  production   capacity  of  113;7  for  the  first  half  of 1949,   an increase'of  19 million barrels.

Mr Carson has definitely promised "Batt" Maclntyre that  the road will go through as  soon as  the  pulp  mill  opens.

Any shift in wharf facilities  should hardly affect the village, as Gibsons will be the  shopping cerytre ,' for Port  Mellon, provided there are  decent road  connections.  No time sould-be lost.taking  up this road and wharf busi-  nesswith the proper authorities.  This means the Boards of  Trade and other loeal concerns.  L.S.  Jackson.  EDITOR The News��� ���  Sir it is a! pleasure to be  " present at some of the local  , gatherings, but there is one  very distinct drawback as far  as oldsters are concerned and  I can assure you that attendance would be doubled if it.  could be overcome.  Our hearing is none too  good* and if the roar and confusion of the attending small  children could be subdued, we  might more appreciate what  is being said and done.  When Mrs Haslam spoke at  a Roberts Creek concert recently, the kitchen door occasionally opened and the roar of  the ill bred mob sounded like  a well filled beer parlour.  Another thing the . Roberts  Creek parents could do is to  teach the kids to take their  halts off. Some o these lugs are  not knee high, either.

You have expressed a  wish that maitters of public  interest be discussed in your  columms, and I am now adopting this method of directing  the attention of the citizens  of Gibsons to the important  subject of "Zoning" particularly in view of the promise  of improved transportation  facilities at an early date,  which will in my opinion,  make Gibsons the distribution,  centre for Howe Sound Peninsula, a condition that we are  not too well prepared for at  the present moment.  I understand that Sechelt,  which is not an organized village, has a restricted district  for commercial purposes.  Gibsons ratepayers association  urged the Villalge Commission  I  Thursday Januarv 11 1951    The Coast News  to consider adopting aZoning  By-Law. The Commission is  still giving it consideration.  With the expansion of the  Village boundaries, and the  advent ofs the Blackball Ferry,  the necessity and need for a  reasonable zoning by-law in  this Village, whereby business  people will know where they  can be permitted to locate new  businesses, without having to  contend with criticism from  adjoining home owners, and  where home owners who invest  money in _hom.es can be given  necessary protection against  devaluation of their property  'as the result of commercial  activities, surely there can be  little   real   objection  to   such  procedure.  If anything is to be done  in this matter ihen there  should be no further delay in  the Village Commission taking  action, and I am filing a resolution with the Village Clerk  asking that the subject of  "Zoning" be dealt with at the  next meeting of the Commission, on Wednesday, January  17 at 7 p.m.  Pending passing * of a bylaw, the Village Commission  ha's the legal right to refuse  applications for a trade license  by new applicants, providing  unanimous in its decision. I do  not like this rather arbitrary  manner of doing business, but.

GAME played on New Year's day. The  Garbage Bowl game took place on the Montreal West Athletic  Grounds in Montreal with the pyjama clad Southside Bombers  emerging as victors over the underwear attired Northside Combines  (not combinations). It was rough going with plenty of chills for  the battlers and much wear and tear on the uniforms as shown  <?  w0>  ;X&iJ  in the above photos. The gridiron was covered knee-deep in heavy  snow. The game only saw one touchdown as compared with the  high-scores of the U.S. bowl games. The Southside ploughed  through the snow in the second quarter for the T.D. after scoring  a rouge in the first stanza to win over the Wolly Wollies CA  It was the second annual Garbage Bowl Game.  6-0.  PENGUIN'S COUSIN ��� Thousands  of fish-eating birds known as the-  Brunnich's Murre, full cousin of  the Puffin, appeared in the Montreal area after recent high winds.  The birds, bred in the Gulf of St.  Lawrence are marine birds and  cannot take off from land. Dan  Ryan, Sr.. president of the Verdun  and District Sportsman's Associn-  tion. is making a personal investigation to see if the birds  Starved to death or moved on to  the Great Lakes. If thev are found,  he wili see what can be done to  6hip them hack to the gulf.
