IWWIE"1*   2  ami mB!'\?mf.mmjrm!'<i^miir^inimifri'S'��^S9 _  Tlie Coast News"" Thursday January 20951"  "-CfSlu  ONE OF THE  most important things to re~  memer about planning for the future is  simply - planning.  Gibsons Board of Trade came close to  turning its back on what may be the onlv  sensible .approach to guiding our future economy along sound, business like lines.  At the instigation of a lone voice from  the meeting the Board decided to find out  more about a general industrial planning program instituted by the Vancouver Board of  Trade in conjuntion with other boards in. the  area. v  It is a Ave 11 kuoAvn fact that second industry sites are scarce in Vancouver or Bur-  naby.  Taxes are nearly prohibitiAre. Cost of a  ten lacre site sounds like ai king's ransom to  a group or small company starting its oavii  industry.  The Fraser Valley is primarily an agri- '  cultural area - residents intend to keep it such.  Where else can secondary industry locate  with any degree of security in respect to  future, firm, equitable costs?  The Sechelt Peninsula is the answer.  Transportation - the big bug in regarcl to  any person starting here in the past, may not  be such an imposing obstacle noAv. It is certain  we shall be able to ship to VancouArer with  comparable cost to that of the Fraser Valley.  We Avill undoubtedly have at least tAvice a  diay ��� service to VancouArer when trucks and-  cars can journey to the centre without having  to unload, then reload.        '  In this matter of Water transport, handling charges is the largest item.  A commodity must first be loaded on the  truck at the point of starting. It then must  be unloaded at the barge or ship, then be  loaded on;to the \ressel. It then must be unload-  ded off the ship onto the'dock at the desti  nation port. Then it must be loaded on to a  truck for deliArery to the' consignee.  Under the neAv plan hinted by latent car  ferry neAArs, trucks can be loaded at the point  of manufacture and go directly to Vancouver,  complete Avith the saAdng.  The Board of Trade is hoav finding out  more about the suggested survey being1 made  by a group of economists and industrialists to  which Ave haA^e beeu invited.      -F'"'"���  We suggest much good can come from  this type of, thinking! .It.is-not knoAvn if Ave  haAre ia1nd and conditions Avhieh are attractive  to medium sized industry. It is not known  Avhether traffic and transport conditions  AArou!d lend itself to such ia; program as Ave  would like.  In conjunction Avith the Vancouver Regional Planning Board and its staff of experts,  some very important information may come to  light.       " :.  In selling, advertising, by some means or  another is all important. But prior to the sales'  point, the salesman must knoAV his product.  It behooAres each of us to learn about our  product, the Sechelt Peninsula and all its great  potential.  - In joining with VancouArer in a search for  industrial sites, the Gibsons Board of Trade  has shown imagination and initiate.  Our hope is, hoav the ball is rolling the  ��� Board keeps its eye on it.  We suggest to President Robert Telford  that he calls his executive when interim decisions are to be made.,.  Waiting two months between meetings,  in the the most interesing stage in our groAvth  is not sense.  When dealing with matters of such import as our fufture, may Ave suggest that speed  and action are imperative-perhaps now, more  than ever, before.

Here   is  the  second in the series  of  articles     produced    by   Ken  Alexander. The first was printed last week and has brought  much popular comment.  War in any country suddenly brings that plaice to the  attention of the reading public,  so it is Avtfh Korea. Up springs  hords of experts and with  little to go on Ave are given  the benefit of their opinions,  at so much a line, over the air,  in the  papers  and magazines.  What are the facts, is this  country poverty stricken as  the Saturday Evening Post  and the papers Avould give us  to understand or is it capable  of self support?.  Here  are. the  figures  gath  ered  from  many v sources  that  will   sIioav   a   very , different  picture   of  Korea!  than   Avhat  Ave have been given.

Manganese  about 33.000. tons. Tungsten  . about 11.000 tons. There is  also a quantity of gold in  Korea.  On top of these figures may  the writer point' out that in  mining and agriculture the pro-  -duction was obtained by primitive means.  With a population i of over  29.000.000. ithis country had  a large export in rice, barley  and millet.

Married    recipients    of    War  Veterans   Allowance    receive  $70.83   per  month.   Recipients  of Widows Allowance  receive.  $40.41   per  month.

In   all  these  classes,  the people concerned must demonstrate their  need before the Allowance or.  Pension is paid.  In our opinion it is utterly  impossible for these people to  pay premiums under the B.C.  Hospital Insurance Scheme,  and the Canadian Legion  throughout British Columbia is  . "When His Holiness has spoken, we have to bow ..."  That's how Msgr. Paul Emile Leger, Montreal's archbishop, recently commented on the Papal edict forbidding Catholic clergymen from joining service  clubs.   Msgr.  Leger spoke  briefly  to(  newsmen at his palace-where a few minutes before Msgr. Julien  Le Couedic, bishop of Troyes, France, granted a press conference  on his arrival here.   "We are not supposed to- interpret His Holiness' words," Msgr. Leger said. "If we deem it appropriate we shall ���  at a later date issue a statement on the matter . .  ."   Asked  whether the Montreal Catholic clergy would be forbidden to join  the Rotary clubs or attend  their meetings, Msgr. Leger had a'  one-word reply: "absolutely." '  ceive free hospitalization under  the* Scheme, the feme as is  provided for Old Age Pensioners who, if both are in receipt  of the Old Age Pension, receive  $100 per month.

HERE  IS  THE  BOOK FOR  BUSINESS  LIKE FARMERS  The Fa,rm Account Book, prepared  by  the  Dominion   Department   of Agriculture   and  'issued by'the Bank of Montreal  is just the book that farmers  need to keep an effective, helpful record of the yield of their .  farms. The latest issue of the  book  has  now   come   off  the  press,    reports    Tom    Larson,  ��� manager" of the   B   of   M   art  Gibsons and  Sechelt.   "The B  of  M Farm  Account  Book",  he says /'helps a farmer keep  an exaCit check on the produce  of eaich part of his farm, and  the value of that produce. It  includes a permanent record of  varieties, crop yields' and soil  treatments, and also enables a  .farmer to  maintain an up-to-  date inventory of his ma chin-  fry'  and implements.  It helps  him check the development of  his  farm  over  the  year,   and  thus decide where his profits  are  coming  from  and  where  he may need to alter his plans  for  the  future".   It  certainly  pays to know what part pf any  operation   is   making   money,  land   what   parrt   isn't.   Any  farmer who would like a copy  of  this  useful  Account  Book  is invited to apply for it'at the  Bank of Montreal ait Gibsons  I or Sechelt. Either call in when  you 're next in towki, or drop  a line to Mr Larson.  Advt.  (Continued from' page 2)  and    wait   until   you've    got  something    better    than    the  present   schmozzle,    which   is  pretty thin.  I can't imagine why yon  waJit to "get" Sinclair. But  if you do, just be patient. A  man as bad as you say Sinclair  is can't last much longer. Perhaps when you are big enough  to fill the shoes now-'as you  claim-occupied by feet of day,  Sinclair will be dead and  buried..about ai hundred years.  Sinclair is a good man. You  know that in your heart. But  let's just suppose for a paragraph that he is wrong in  wanting to look after the  wharf and float and transportation needs of the people of  the northern peninsula, Let's  just suppose that.  Now, supposing that is true,  wouldn't it be better for you,  as the wiser and more experienced of the two men, to  correct Jimmie quietly, show  him the error of his ways, and  lead him down the path of  proper ^things ? If you want  to serve your. community, as  you imply that you do, won't  you be serving it better by-  attempting to keep ia. good  member - even though he may  not be perfect - by teaching  him quietly such parts of his  business as he may not know,  and have him go on serving  your community?

Seasons Why.  These are some of the reasons  why we print this rather caustic and certainly hard to take  letter.  Biit, in self defence we  would like to point out that  Mr Alsgard is unwittingly  guilty of exactly the same  things  of  which    he   accuses.  1, Slanting. No man, including Mr Alsgard can write a  story without slanting. Only  automatons can devise reports  which are not slanted. There  are no,automatons around and  if there were this paper would  not use them.  2. Mr Alsgard based his  arguments on half-truths and  ouit and out incorrect information. We know, where he got  the wrong slant but that is  another story. In his letter, Mr  Alsgard, points out that this  paper should not -, try for  Gibsons alone. We should  think of the peninsula as a  whole.  JJo Priority.  We have checked our back  issue   copies  and  halve  never  once even hinted that Gibsons/  should  be   given   priority   in  anything.  We  do   not  believe  Thursday January 25 1951  Gibsons should be given any  priority at the expence of  other parts of the Peninsula.  We have never advocated such  a policy. We, as a paper are  for the Peninsula as a whole.  3. The letter goes on to say  that Mr Sinclair.is a "bigger  man than the editor will ever  be".  No  argument, it matters  little.  4. The letteit- suggests we  should be big and work for  the good of the area without  ulterior motive; that we are  aiming, at Mr Sinclair's expense, for cheap publicity.  We May Be Wrong.  We feel there is a certain  amount of truth, in this. We  did tackle Mr Sinclair's policy  in >aill belief that we were doing  correctly. The resultant publicity may be cheap but the  .publicity in the sense that  many people talked about the  matter,was hardly cheap unless the honest and some of the  most influential] Liberals in the'  area are cheap and have cheap  motives.  We did not tackle Mr  Sinclair, rightly or wrongly,  with any thought of getting  more subscriptions. That may  he poor business but it is the  'truth. Yet Mr Alsgaird could  be right in his idea, of the  motive. it is usually done that  way but not this time. .

Let's suppose, also, you have a  , 12-year-old  son  you  think  is  pretty  bright. You feel that, with education and  application,   he  could   go  a   long  way ��� could rise right to the top in  business,  in  industry,  or in  one of  the professions.

We never hinted, said, or  implied that we would take  Mr Sinclair, "down a peg or  two". "We have no axe to grind  with Mr Sinclair. Nothing is  of less importance to us than  his, social rating. We are interested in having only the  best we can get for the money.  We do not care if a representative is bombastic, conceited,  coward or just plain liar as  long as all his good qualities  are centred around, first the  betterment of Canada and  secondly his. constituency.  For Canada Only.  We point out that we hardly  claim Sinclair is even one of  these. But it would not matter  less if he were, provided he  was wholeheartedly trying to  better-. Canada.'  We bow to the advice to  quietly suggest to Mr Sinclair  that he was probably on the  wrong path' with regard to the  wharves and try to show him  why we beleived he was wrong  That is sound, constructive  advice and quite in keeping  with our opinion of Mr  Alsgard. ���  . We have a great admiration  for the Powell River- News  publisher., both as a man and  as *a publisher, that, is' the;  reason we print, his letter.  We believe the letter voices  the belief, secreted in the minds  of many of our readers, and '  therefore we take this opportunity of saying we may have  erred in our manner of correcting what we beleive is-in all  truth, probably only a mistake,  but we stand firm in our motive and denounce any suggestion that we tried for base  publicity.
