News we shall have ia car ferry and the  promise given by our MLA, Mr Maclntyre,  that he would do what he could to have our  roads reclassified should be the spark {to start  a full dress discussion of our road problem.  It must be remembered now is the time to  get the wlaishing clean in respect to 'our  ���thoroughfares. Once the provincial government has laid down blacktop it will be the  toughest of jobs, to have the routes changed.  Some of us may not like the plain truth,  but it is a foregone conclusion that only one  road in the Roberts Creek area will be classified a primary sometime in the future. The  Department of Public Works leans to the  thought ,the upper roiad is the main road. If it  stays with this idea, then the upper road will  be the one to recieve the lions share of future  money. -;.    '   ;   ���  This will doubtless clause controversy, in  fact it already'has, but this argument need  not be vitriolic Or meam.Ohe road only will  get the nod. Therein rests the question which  should not be left entirely to the Department.  Residents along both roads have good arguments. They should, as ithey doubtlessly, win.,  under auspices-of the Roberts Creek Improve^-  ment Association, get together and amicably  iron out .the rather thorny question.  Half moon Bay residents have their troubles  with the Honeymoon Beach . cutoff. The Provincial government refuses to pujt- in the short  cut at the moment.  Doubtlessly this attitude will be .drastically  changed if and when reclassification should  come by virtue of increased traffic from both  Vancouver and Powell River.  The Halfmoori Bayers are not' loth to voice  their opinions of what should be.done for the  area. Under leadership- of the new Liberal  group it nnay be possible to get in some very  good pointers now, 'before it is too late.  Once the government has made up its mind,  ,we all know what that means.  Our capable MLA, Batt Maclntyre has  promised to help these groups who are having  trouble with their locial problems. Batt  is getjting a stronger voice in Victoria and  should be of great help in matters of this type.  Rumour, fairly strong rumour, has it that  the main road from Gibsons to Sechelt should  leave Gibsons via the Gower Point ro&d and  thence to Roberts Creek and then along the  Beach Avenue area, coming out. near Wilson  Creek.  This, contend the backers of the "move,  would give persons coming from the States  and Vancouver land the interior of B.C., a  golden opportunity, of seeing the sea and land  beauties of the Sechelt Peninsula.  "There are no schools along this routje",  they. contend. There is ��� unsurpassed scenic  splendour Which tourists are willing to pay  millions of dollars to see, and,-'finally,", putting  a beautiful road along the seashore will npt  detract from the accessibility of farmers now  located on the present Sechelt main road.'  There is no doubt that roads will hold the  spotlighvt. of public .discussion for. some time  to come.  That is all to the good. Now is the time t'6\  do the planning and the discussing."  Once the roads are in the wrong place it'  will be a lifelong and perhaps impossible job  to have them eblanged.  If road changes there are to be on' this  Peninsula, lejt it be done now, when they are  merely in the ;blue print stage. Once the blacktop is. down we have hasd it.  ;.-i-> .. i:i  ^43ta44A/-*-S8..'  . : -..;... =;;'. "'.'!' ^30-W  traderV Rights \a\  EDITOR the -Newsv:''����  ��� ' ������*���*���. vv  SI&.

In tune with the growing feeling that progress'-.has  speeded up in relation to the Sechelt Peninsula is the following   article   by   Roy  W.   Brown,    editorial    director    for    the  Vancouver Sun.      ��� ���''������.'"���  Hon. R.C. MacDonald minister of mines in the Coalition  cabinet, contributed an interesting background in his ' :Story  of Iron atad S,teel in B.C."  over the radio on Monday  night - 'ai story of hopes and  aspirations so far unrealized  exeejpt to a comparatively  small degree, that indefatigible  friend of a steel industry-to-  come, CM. Campbell of Vancouver, sent The Sun just a  month ago all the develope-  ments he could muster -on the  subject, Mr Campbell confesses  to a. feeling of' disillusionment  and disgust at the rapid dissipation o�� a; great inherits  a nee". He refers to the continued failure to really set up  a profitable steel industry,  which he says "B.C. can have"  In timber-manufacture, in fisheries, in mining of gold and all  kinds of base metals, British  Columbia has achieved a creat  place in the forefront of  Can a dian production.  What,   then,   is   the   factor,  or   factors,   holding   us   back  from converting iron ore which  we  have  in  abundance  into  useful   articles   of   commerce!  A natural Way to seek the  answer is to backtrack a bit  to the fact that more than 50  years ago enough iron was  mined from Texada Island to  construct at battleship for the  U.S. n'arvy.  Why were not other battleships constructed - or other  kitchen utensils built from ore  extracted from the same place?  You would be right if you  guessed that steel plants in the  United States found more advantageous sources of supply  than Texada; and that, taking  the alternative of developing  an industry on the site of the  raw material, it proved too  big : and costly an investment  -then, and for all the years  since, to install a plant of a  size and design suited to this  province and the available  market. ��� There was ,-a quicker  and surer . return for Consolidated many years ago to  set up a smelter for silver and  lead and zinc at Trail than  'to come to Vancouver or  Texada  to   develope  steel.  The world-wide success of  the Trail plants suggest tha,t  Consolidated made no mistake.  But that- was a decision of  many decades ago - what we  aire injteJrested in today is���  can we start a steel industry  at the Coast?  'SIMPLE PLANT'  For several decades the  "story" has been that no competent group would finance the  erection of a steel mill here.  The prospective investment  officially estimated at $16,500,  000 in 1938 has probably been  doubled since. There are two  other questions involved possible markets for the sale ov  the product and certain competition from large U.S. firms.  But, you-say��� and this, I  contend, is a most logical way  to look at it���"if we cannot  have a big steel plant at once,  what about starting with something simple " ?  This leads to another hack-  track. Two years ago a firm  from Washington State came  here and purchased a few scow*  loads of iron ore from Quinsaan  on Vancouver Island' and could  have bought some from Texada  or half a dozen other places on  this Coast.  ';'���  The venture was unsuccessful and for a, very fundamental  reason. They found it unprofitable to ship the raw ore because it was too bulky for the  net cash return available.< at  the business, end of the furnace. The raw material is too  "raw" to: stand shipping costs.  Three-quarters of the shipping  weight was dross.  So this idea of getting a  start at the simplest possible  level failed to pan out. But it  induced some people to take a  new look at the whole proposition.  i        ... ���     ���   .       ...      ."'.--  If you Cannot immediately  get a big steel instil and if you  cannot successfully ship your  ore for manufacture elsewhere,  the next question toi consider  is whether it. is possible to set  up some kind of plant locally  (o transform this raw mlajterial  into a product that- will have  value on the world market ?  This may not suit "the people  Who tergue for a steel mill ���',  in any event, but it is perhaps  a start on something practical.  Robert  Crowe-Swords  is  a  mining  engineer  with  a  lifelong    experience    in   mining  silver - lead zinc ores in the  Slocasn. There, , ..the i\ almost-  universal rule is to concentrate"  the ore'at the mine-mOuth or  in a customs- concentrator nearby. Tnadl reduction- works will  not accept ai carload/,of zinc ore  that falls below 40 percent of  that metal. .    -"  HARNESSING TIDE,  Mr Crowe-Swords conducted  some. investigations and found  that if lie could treat Texada  iron, ores, for instauce, in a  concentrator, he could produce  something that would be 80 to  85 percent "pure iron which  would, stand up to shipping  charges almost anywhere, for  it would have a value in excess..-  pf $75 per ton.  ' - --     --..������ T ~ - . -       ,< -^\t. �����.*-.    ** .' .j  .-���-���'Where' to get electric power  to "/operate a- concentrator ? On  Texada there is. no natural  water po'wer. Bust quite close  by and also near to, Rodonda  Isl and which liiass a .fine .deposit  of- iron-ore, is the.-ten kno.t  tidal current of Skookumcliuk  Narrows, the -/entrance, to  Sechelt Inlet. For many years,  on almost countless occasions.  Mr Crowe-Swords had looked  . eiivi ously on th is iais a pr o j e c.t  to turn to industrial Uses.  Recently, he had it exa,mined  by engineers ��iid preliminaiy  plans prepared- Five Islands  blpck the Niarows and form the  powerful white waiter jets of  Skoolvumchuk. They are at different points and lie at varied  angles and it looks as if ; a  series of dams could be cor-:  related so that a continous  flow of power could be obtained, with no shutdowns between  ebb   and  flow   of. the  terrific  tides. ��  So ^far   in    world   history,  ^ ��� -  ���.  ������;���������  ,   ��� ��� U  tides have; not been suecess|  fully employed to furnish!  power, but there are unusual  conditions at ; Skookumchukf  one of which is' the favorablf  fact that far more water run|i  "out-of the inlet than into it$  SeVerail rivers supply this over!  load which might help to make  ��� the tideway aa f easable ancjj  continous: power site. Anywayj  Mr Crowe-Swords intends to  have more than a second look  at it.

People sometimes lose sight  of the fact that making personal loans is one of the hanks'  more important functions. But,  as Tom Larsen, manager of the  Bank of Montreal branch at  Gibsons,  and Sechelt, points  out, your B of M manager is  always ready to talk over any  situation in which a personal  loan may be helpful to you.  Suppose you are faced with  a emergency, or the sudden  opportunity to make a good  buy, and are short of ready  cash. If you are in a position  to repay a loan by regular in-  stalments out of your income*  the B of M can advance you  ���EL  the money. On $10.0, for example, ..repaid ..in ..twelve-  monthly instalments, the interest-charge comes to just 27  cents a month. You can be sure  of fair, businesslike treatment  at the B of M, just as you can  be sure   that   anything   you  discuss will be held completely  confidential. Mr Larsen. deals,  with all comers according tc;  the bank's guiding principle*  "When you ask for a loan at  the B of M, you do not ask a.  favour.  1.

The . first inter-house voily-  ball games for the new year  were played January 10.,  1 Games were played by the  boys of houses A. and B. with  house A claiming the victory,  and houses B and C with house  B victorious. The girls of house  A beat the girls of house Bv  and the girls of house B beat  -the girls of house C.  The student council elections  for the; high school student  body, will be coming up next  week. This term's returning  officer is Eugene Blomgren.  The arrival of a birthday  ca!ke at school was enough of  an excuse for a short- birthday celebration during the  English 30 class. The cake, a  delicious chocolate layer cake*  with -blue icing and pink  decorations, was baked by  Betty Brown in honour of"  Eugene    Blomgren's    seven  teenth birthday.  The Teen-agers of Roberts  Creek held a party in honour  of Eugene |3iomgren at the-  Kewpie Gamp on Saturday  January 13. There were a few  teeUi-agers from Gibsons too,  and all seemed to have a good  time. The chaperones were Mrs  E Mumerfelt��� Mrs C Bourne  land Mrs R Carlson.

Mi Parrish, Proprietor  Phone 89,  B  1  I  f  I  YELLOW CEDA.R.I belive that the following remarks by  Mr R.S. Perryy of the Vancouver Forest Laboratory will be of  valuable assistance to those who are a little sceptical about using  this material. He   states   ''The  wood is  appropriately  named  * 'Yellow' 'Cedar from the clear sulphur yellow color of the heart-  wood. The  sapwood forms  only a narrow hand is   somewhat  lighter in color* The wood contains an oil which imparts a distinctive, rather disagreeable odor when freshly cut, but which  appears to add a gloss to a newly finished surface. It is straight  grained with narrow indistinct annual rings (and has a fine even  compact tekture showing a very little figure in slash cut lumber.  It is moderately: light in weight, being approximately 6 to 8  lb. heavier per cubic foot than Western Red Cedar. It is fairly  stiff and hard, has a very small  shrinkage  factor,  similar to  Western Red Cedar and  an average  strength  approximately  equal to that of Western Hemlock. Contrary to general opinion  that the wood is brashy test results show it to have a. toughness  and shock resisting ability not usually found in softwoods of its  density. Yellow Cedar is easy to dry and once seasoned has lessi  tendency to change its shape than any other western wood. It  is easy to work and  takes a beautiful finish.Compared with  Douglas fir it is somewhat low in nail holding ability but itis iaot  liable to splinter and it holds glue well. It is a wood of superior  durability, comparable under similar conditions with Western  Red Cedar, Port Orford fctedar, Redwood and Southern Cypress,  while under especially severe conditions it is considered superior  to this factor to most woods". While agreeing with most of the  above this writer has not found its nail holding ability much of a  question and ho mention is made of its abrasive qtulities; in  this particular it is in my opinion, second to none, as the wear  and tear on the local bridges shows Yellow Cedar to be far superior to Douglas Fir, and finally, another thmg, the teredos  regard Fir as their main dish. .  Yellow Cedar is best and cheapest for  your building requirements. Phone  the sawmill Wilson Creek 20 M.  SEE  US  FOR  ALL  YOUR LUMBER  NEEDS.

Mr  Thomas  and Miss  Moore  got down from Pender through  the   kindness   of   our   school  dentist, Dr Frank. After Routine busirfess, the salary committee explained the progress  in negotiations with the Board.  Mr  D.  M.  Falconer,  stressed  the point that relations  with  the Trustees were friendly and  free  from  any  personal!  animosity. He explained that we  are arbitrating voluntarily because we haid reached a deadlock and desired the advice of  a third party. Mr Stan Evans  of the British Columbia Teacher's Federation clarified our  jsdtualtion in'an explanation of  the  mechanics   of  arbitration.  He had spoken  with teachers  and people in the community,  and   felt   that   our   relations  were of the best, and that by  .going   to  voluntary  arbitration we would keep that way.  Arbitration  would  strengthen  the Trustee's position regarding departmental grants. There  was a lively discussion of the  mews   item   in    the   COAST  NEWS   of   January   11.   The  article discussed .an ambigous  circular received by the school  'board, and concluded with the  statement   that      the   'School  Board would-"continue  compiling estimates on the  absolute   minimum   needs".   This  meeting felt that the ''absolute  minimum" is not good enough  for our children and that the  people of the  district should  take action to insure receiving  their fair share  of the  three-  percent  sales  tax  which   was  instituted   in   part   to    bring  about equalisation  in  educa-  ���<���'   fzion.    School    tax   rates    for  ���current  expenses   in   a  rural,  area does not go above 8 mills.  The balance is paid by a government grant from  the sales  tax.  There  is  no  reason   why.  the pupils of the Sechelt Peninsula should not have the  advantages   of   bettier   libraries','  more    equipment,    and    more  specialized-..teachers   such    as  ���*��� instructors in commercial  shop  and home  economics.  Perhaps  fchel term   a.s.  used   meant  "a  budget without frills" still we  feel that the use of the term  ftibsolufe  minimum   was   unfortunate- and.   unfair   to  our  district.  Education week, March 4 to  Harch ��� 10, was discussed.  Speakers will be available for  local organizations who -would,  like information on our, own  educational objectives and  achievements. Contact Mr.  Thomas of Pender Harbour,  Mrs Rankin of Sechelt, Mr  Falcon or or Mrs Day of  Gibsons,   for   speakers.  Advt.

Smith, because I suggested a  Union letter was ambiguous,  got on his feet (and told the  unit that I- was prejudiced  against the Union.  I may or not be prejudiced^  but it is beyond me how a��  person can tell so fast.  Bob Macnicol got on his feet  to denounce the Coast News  for something.

"Our Jimmy", took three  minutes to cut us to ribbons  and tuck us away in the pit of  the forgotten. At ith'at, he did  a good job and used more  caution, tempered with kindness than I would have  thought  possible.  Gordon Bryant was at the  Board meeting and had a few  words to say. Gordon is the  very quiet, kindly soul who  builds houses and minds his  own business, bofth those attributes rule him out from  working on a newspaper,, by  the way.
