 Woodfibre Not  Definitely Closing  L. KILLAM, president of the  B.C. Pulp and Paper Co. Ltd.,  declared in a telephone interview with the Coast News on  Friday that there had been no  decision to close Woodfibre as  stated at an election campaign  meeting on Thursday at Gibsons.  . Mr. Killam admitted that the  pulp business was not very good  at the present time but stated  that the company was not in a  position to tell its employees if  or when the plant would close  as it did not know. He added  that everything possible was being done to avoid a shut down.  ;  Sp ivinji a  lJro__ressive and Growing  Area on B. C.'s Southern Coatsi.

NESTMAN  SCHOOL BYLAW  OUR SCHOOL bylaw went  through with such a close margin that it wasn't even hunny;  there again everyone didn't get  rut, although it was a very close  battle. "Your vote in there could  have saved us a lot of breathtaking days, waiting for that  very important Egmont vote to  get in. Until we realize- the importance of our vote, then we  are certainly lacking in our duty.  The ones who were against this  bylaw made it their business to  get out and see that they cast  their "No" ballot; those for it,  came out but certainly not as  forcefully as the "No's." It passed  all right but mighty close, too  close for comfort.  Anyway, to my way of thinking, it is a wonderful thing for  the children. Why shouldn't they  have some good schools. For the  past few years those teen agers  have had very little in the school,  compared to the schools in the  city. Why should they be penalized for living in the country?  They have as much intelligence  as any city child, and should be  given a chance to use it.  I personally know several  children here that " are artists  both in woodwork and painting,  and also sketching, yet they can  do so very little here to develop  those talents. It is a. pity their  talents should go and be wasted.  Many people Will say why  should We pay for such "fripperies" and trimmings, average  education,is enough for them. It  might have been one day, but  today competition in everything  is so keen that the child is handicapped unless he has something  in his hands.  ELECTION FLASHES  Mrs. Grace Mclnnis addressed  a meeting at Gibsons last night.  Due to weather and maybe the  fact that Mr. Mahon, Conservative candidate, addressed a meeting also, accounted for the poor  tournout. Mrs. Mclnnis, a very  capable speaker and a past master in the art of political speaking, deserved a little better audience to my way of thinking.  If you don't get out and hear  these speakers, how are you going to judge who and what party  you are going to give your vote  to. ��_ the party you want in is  'beaten at election time due to  tthe apathy of the local voter,  then you have only yourself to  blame. If you believe in your  party, it's up to you to see that  they get your vote. Don't be so  sure your party is going to win,  'and. doesn't need your vote.  That's where you make your biggest mistake. Every vote counts  on election day day.

Your vote is a  very important part of this whole  battle.  Why battle to get on the voters' list and then ignore the election? It is your duty as a citizen  to vote on election day. A call  will bring a car for you, no matter where you are. Let them  know you want to vote, and  they'll get you there, never fear.  Let's see everyone get out and  make this the largest vote of the  area. It's up to you. -You have  the vote and your conscience  should tell you, "USE IT."  Voting will be in Bal's Hall  from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. Contact  Jimmy Drummond for any further information.  SINCLAIR   MEETING  James Sinclair launched his  campaign here last week, coming  to Gibsons by speedboat. He  held a meeting at, Granthams in  the afternoon, and then in the  evening held a meeting in Bal's  Hall at Gibsons.  A fair interested audience listened to Ron Howard extol the  virtues of our very well known  federal candidate, and then  Jimmy gave a very comprehensive outline of his last four years  in the House. He asserted that  there were no major issues involved in going to the country  at this time for election. It was  to be a test of the government's  popularity with the country, and  to find out the wish of the people on whether they approve or  disapprove of the government's  past policy and their policies for  the future.  While there are probably many  things that could be done by the  government, the opinion is that  they have not done so badly in  the past few years.  All reports to the contrary, figures show that there are approximately five million employed today, and that Canada takes her  place as the third greatest trading nation, with Great Britain  and United States. Mr. Sinclair  spoke briefly on all these issues,  National Housing, hospitalization, and many other problems,  told of the improvement in  wharf ing ��� services up. and down  the coast. One of his major projects for the coastal area, of great  aid and importance to our great  fishing industry, is a safe anchorage at least every 20 miles  along our great B.C. coast, the  wharf at Sechelt to be completed  by next year, and the breakwater to be erected there will  be between the reserve and Selma Park, due to difficulty of  construction right at Sechelt  wharf.  Touching on the size of Gibsons wharf, which at the time  of the opening seemed a mighty  huge project, Mr. Sinclair informed the audience that it is  already proving too small for  this rapidly growing distributing  centre.  Dredging of the Gibsons area  due to persistence of Mr. Sinclair will ultimately be concluded with a breakwater which will  make our harbor safe and sound  THE COAST NEWS. Tuesday, June 14, 1949  By JUDY  Mr. Al Lloyd, our genial storekeeper at Garden Bay, is on a  week's vacation at Quesnel.  Mrs. J. Helmer and family of  Garden Bay, returned from a  week's  visit at Vancouver.  Mr. Ken Williamson tells us  that his dad, Horace Williamson  is coming along fine in . Vancouver. He is still hospitalized  at the Vancouver General Hospital.  News from St. Mary's Hospital:  BIRTHS  To Mr. and Mrs. Bob Cameron  for all small and large craft. On  mail service for the district, he  favors the giving of this franchise with its subsidies to the  smpll boats which ply their daily  runs up and down the coast..This  cannot be accomplished until the  end of the contracts with the  present steamship companies, but  when the charter runs out in a  couple of years' time, then he  will move for this project's completion.  To help this varea, the small  logger and rancher get rid of his  thuDer, and help to clear his land,  he touched on the booming  grounds in the Headlands, which  have just been granted to the  small logger.  Speaking to the question of  federal aid to education, the  speaker felt at this time it would  be very foolish for the government to go into this department.  He quoted figures that the federal government had paid out  over 160 million dollars to vocational training for the veteran,  in university and other training  for the returned man over 100  million in last three years.  While this is a very contentious subject, Sinclair felt that  the government at Ottawa was  indirectly doing all they could  at this time in school aid.  Mr. Sinclair was given a very  intensive hearing, and his campaign manager said that Jimmy  is in such great demand as a  speaker that he has an itinerary  tnat will carry him from Kootenays clear back to Ottawa on  a "stumping" tour.  Speaking on old age pensions  in the course of his speech, he  favored very strongly pensions  for all at 70, with elimination of  the means test, and will work  for this, as he has done in the  past. This social service should  be sponsored and financed by  the federal government, is Mr.  Sinclair's utlimate aim.  GOLDEN WEDDING  Mr. and Mrs. G. A.

MORE ABOUT  LARGE AUDIENCE  (Continued From Page 1)  would be willing to accept a  wager that the road would be  built.  Mr. Sawyer asked if the Halfmoon Bay cut-off would be built  and was told that it was not  scheduled for this year but was  under consideration.  In reply to a request that some  oiling be done on the roads, Mr.  Carson declared that oiling was  not satisfactory as it first created a nuisance by being tracked  into homes and in that way was  worse than the dust, and secondly, after a road had been oiled  it only lasts a short time and  then has to be'graded and the  whole road surface has to be  broken up in order to grade it.  H. W. Aggett told Mr. Carson  that he had been advised that  there would be no oiling done  this year but calcium chloride  was being considered and reminded the minister that the  summer was well under way but  as y#et there had been no action.  He 'declared that the dust was  seriously endangering the health  of the people. He pointed out to  Mr. Carson that the roads had  been graded very thoroughly just  prior to his visit to the district.  He asked the minister if he  thought that the $75,000 allotment for new construction would  build a highway from Gibsons to  Pender Harbor.  Mr. Carson replied to the- latter question with a reminder of  a statement he had made earlier  in the speech that it cost $65,000  per mile to properly construct a  modern highway and that the  recent appropriation would help  fix the present road up. He declared that the government was  going to fix the worst spots of  the 22,000 miles of highway in  B.C. first and told Mr. Aggett  that he would be pleased to drive  over these roads at their worst,  then would take him over thousands of miles of roads in much  worse  condition.  Mr. Carson depicted the progress of the Coalition government ^  in the body of his talk by reviewing the various accomplishments and explaining the plans  for the future.  In conclusion, he urged tne  people to vote on June 15. He  said, "No matter how you vote,  be sure you do vote."  "Voting for Batt Maclntyre is  a vote for increased prosperity  for this riding, but voting for  socialism is a vote not in the  interests of the people," he con- <'  eluded. /  reements  Democratic  In the last Provincial Election, the Labor-Progressive  Party (L.P.P.) nominated 21 candidates . . . and yet.  this year there are only two lone candidates!

Has the L.P.P. infiltrated into  and is it now in control of the CCF. in British Columbia?

We did this because "there  was no provision made for any extra appropriation."  The Saskatchewan pensioners now receive $42.50.  This is the Government that the CCF.  party in British Columbia is holding up  as an example for the people of this  province to follow.

Johnnie, unfortunately has a broken leg at  the present time received whilst  skiing. He gets around just the  same. So welcome back.

The  group have decided to hold a  beach party some time during  July, date to be announced later,  which will be the main money-  raising event of the year. Mrs.  Harold Nelson will be the general convener.  LAUGHLIN'S LEAVING  Saw our old friend, Mrs. Agnes  Laughlin, here once more.* She  tells us that she and her husband will be leaving shortly for  Calgary where they will visit  their daughter Frances, son-in-  law and grandchild, and on their  return their niece is flying out  to visit; them and they expect to  spend quite a time in Sechelt.  Mr. and Mrs. Laughlin are also  old time visitors here.  Mrs. D. Engelen, Barbara and  Valerie are . staying at- the cottage for two weeks. The children are as brown as berries and  enjoying every minute of it.  LUCKY WINNER  Mrs. Wright was the lucky  winner of the cup and saucer donated by Mr. Syd. McKay and  raffled off at the regular meeting of the Ladies' Auxiliary to  the Canadian Legion. There is a  small raffle amongst the members occasionally to help the general fund or one member has an  evening  entertainment    or    an  other a tea. In this way the fund  is kept active. This eliminates  going to the general public for  so much. It is hoped, however,  there will be good returns at the  annual tea and sale of work from  Mr. and Mrs. John Public which,  will this year be held in the Legion Hall on August 13. There  will be wonderful handwork,  fancy work, raffles and home  cooking. Mrs. Ritchie Sr. is convener and a good time is expected, so watch out for this event.  YELLOWLEES HERE  We noticed Mr. and Mrs. Louis  Yellowlees here again on the  waterfront doing their usual  spot of fishing. They are very  fond of the sport and have succeeded in landing some whoppers during the many years they  have been coming here. Good  luck, folks.  We finally heard from Billie  Simning. She says hello to all  her Sechelt friends. She says  Roger is back from England and  they are living in Lachine, Quebec.

RENNIE  During the last weekend the  population of Granthams Landing and Soames Point was considerably larger. Evidently they  were the lucky ones who got the  King's birthday holiday and  could'enjoy  the   long   weekend.  Some of the houses that have  been empty since last Fall were  occupied by the owners who  were all busy clearing out the  weeds from their gardens and  tidying up the grounds. The  housewives were all busy cleaning and airing the houses and  making ready for the summer  holidays.  Among these visitors we noticed Mr. and Mrs. Startup and  son: Miss Elise Potter and her  friend Miss Foulks, Mr. and Mrs.  Miln arid Mr. and Mrs. Swanson.  Mrs. McKay was the guest of  her daughter Mrs. Wales and Mr.  Wales.  Some of the property on the  "Reserve" west of the wharf has  changed hands recently. The  house which was owned by Mr.  and Mrs. Ketchin has been sold  also .the house owned by Mrs.  Bond'.  It is wonderful to see what  changes can be made in a year  on new property. When Mr.  Boucher started to get rid of so  many big tree stumps on the  side of the hill above the site of  his new house it looked as if it  would be an impossible place to  garden. Now, since it has been  landscaped, it is growing into  a beauty spot, with rockeries and  flower beds, and needless to remark, lots of hard work and patience.  There are a number of lovely  gardens to be seen on the road  between .Gibson and Granthams  Landing and Soames Point, but,  like the lovely ferns and bushes  growing   on   the   roadsides   they  are being destroyed by the terrible dust that is for ever being  blown   over   them   when   trucks  and cars rush past. We who have  to  walk  that road  are  very  indignant   at   the   condition   of   it.  A few years  ago it was  one of  the pleasures of diving, here just  to go for a walk along that road,  now   it  is  just the   opposite.   Is  it necessary that it should be' always graded by a grader which  I  Tuesday, June Fourteenth, Nineteen Forty-Nine  Cast Yoiif Vote    .  .  ON MAY 28 the will of a very small minority  was almost forced upon the people of this  Peninsula. Due mainly - to the indolent and  lethargic attitude of the 4000 property owners  in School District 46, the organized attempt of  less than 500 shortsighted voters almost succeeded in defeating the plebiscite for new  schools for the district. Never before has there  been an issue of such supreme importance to  the voters than the school issue, yet about 25  percent of the property owners were^the only  ones with interest enough to exercise their  right of voting on the subject.  On June 15 another important issue will  be presented to the voters on this Peninsula���  whether to continue under a government practising free enterprise or whether to try a socialistic government. Mr. Herbert Gargrave is  on the side of socialism and Mr. B. M. Maclntyre is advocating free enterprise.  This  time  Squasli Jealousy .   .  TOO MANY people are inclined to feel that  anything that goes on in other parts of  the Peninsula than their own front yard is  no concern of theirs. Too many people are  inclined to resent any progress made by one  community because they feel that their own  problems have been ignored.  The announcement that the Port Mellon  road would be started this year was not  greeted with much enthusiasm anywhere outside of Gibsons. Too many people feel that because Gibsons will reap the greatest benefit  from this advancement it is of no value to  the rest of the Peninsula. We feel that it will  have a very definite bearing on the progress  of the Peninsula as well as being a tremendous boost to Gibsons.  Consider the percentage of the 300 families  resident  at Port   Mellon  who  will now  buy  .   after weighing the issues  it is not just the property owners who have a  say in tne matter; this time every man and  woman over the age of 21 who is shown on  the voters list is asked to express an opinion  on this matter.  Four years ago when there were four  choices in the Provincial election, CCF, Coalition, LPP and Social Credit, it was the v^otes  of only 24 percent of the people in this riding  that elected the member to represent it. This  condition resulted from a small poll of votes  (61 percent) and the fact there were four  parties in the running.  This time the issue is clear cut, there are  only two ways to vote. This time it is YOUR  duty to see that the minority does not elect  the member. Study the issues carefully now,  make up your mind what is best for this province, and on June 15 be sure to vote.  .   ...   .   .   it gains us nothing  cars so that they can go for weekend trips and  holiday drives up the Peninsula.  Each time a carload of four or five people  drives up the Peninsula they will be circulating among our many communities anywhere  nom $5 to $20 in gasoline, meals, boat rentals,  and the many other things that people spend  their money on when on a holiday.  We should welcome this announcement as  the first step in many progressive moves that  will result in the growth of this Peninsula to  the busiest and most prosperous section of the  province. When we can rearrange our thinking to that level we will gear ourselves to the  level where we can accommodate, welcome  and encourage progress on the Sechelt Peninsula. While we spitefully resent the progress  of any single point we discourage and drive  away progress. * ���  The Federal Election . . .[Sinclair applies for his job  ALTHOUGH the provincial election���next  Wednesday���has deservedly been taking  the whole spotlight these past few weeks,  there follows just 12 days later the Dominion  election, and again Powell River district finds  itself in a strategic spot in political circles.

It was over 11 years ago that our present  member; Jimmie Sinclair, first presented himself as a Liberal candidate for election. A  young "unknown" politically, Sinclair surprised; the experts by handily taking the seat,  and in the intervening time has devoted his  superior ability, his natural Scottish acumen,  and his talent for winning friends toward build-  rocks and leaving more holes?  Somehow we feel that if some  loose earth could be spread on it  and pass rollers over it for a  change it might make it a safer  road to travel. Especially on the  Granthams hill where so many  folks slip on the pebbles and  fall. Perhaps if someone has a  serious accident, something might  be done about it. Hope the road  engineer reads this and tries to  improve the road for pedestrians. The other day a gentleman remarked to me that nowadays folks dare not take their  eyes off the road to look at the  lovely scenery for fear they fall.  On Friday, June 3, a number  of the ladies from Granthams  and Soames Point went out to��  Headlunds to attend the garden  party which was held at v the  home of Mrs. Marsden, under the  auspices of Gibsons group of the  Gibsons Memorial United Church  W.A. The Marsden's property is  situated at a wonderful spot. An  ideal place for a garden party.

As parliamentary assistant to the Minister of  Finance these past months, Sinclair has contributed directly to the management of his  nation with marked distinction.  Sinclair has had many opportunities to  prove his interest���a true Liberal interest���  in the serviceman, the man in the street, the  pensioner, the senior citizen, the farmer and  the worker. . -      .      '  This federal riding may be considered fortunate in having had a representative of Sinclair's calibre at Ottawa; certainly Sinclair  feels it a privilege and responsibility to serve  a riding such as this one, and he has already  left many marks in it which testify to his  ability to get the things he wants and feels  should be done. That he is presenting himself  for re-election June 27 is perhaps the best  proof of the Liberal government's faith in his  promise as a budding statesman.  It is not an imaginative statement to say  that Canada needs young men of Sinclair's  ability in its government any more than it is  to say that British Columbia needs hustling  young rebels to keep her in Ottawa's eye.

My father is,  even more forgetful than that.,  He had to go to Europe for his  gout."  I lold this joke with a facei  colored like a hot-house tomato,  twitching lips, fingers pulling  nervously at the hem of my coat,  eyes riveted miserably on,, the  floor. A great crash of silence  followed ii and, as I."stumbled  blindly for my seat, I knew that  I would never let myself gel  trapped again.  During this period, too, my  father became the president of  an institute of journalism and  used to practise his speeches at  home, a cause for so much hilar  ity (on our part) and suffering  (on his) that I determined never  to expose myself to any such de  grading spectacle.  / About a year ago I made a  Herculean effort to overcome  this phobia and accepted a cou  pie of speaking engagements.  These events were as painful for  the audiences as they were for  me. In one case the chairman, in  the customary expression of  thanks to a speaker, could only  smile wanly and assure me' that  my talk had been "most un  usual." It was, too.  In these speeches I found iha  as soon as I arose to my feet,  my mind went blank. I there  fore equipped. myself with ��  small card which I held cuppec  in the palm of my right hand  It contained cryptic little phrase;  such as "History tells us," "One  person experience," "Not since  Biblican times" and similar re  minders.  In actual practise these meant  nothing and for a time I considered carrying another card ir  vnv left hand to explain whal  the card in my right hand was  ax�� about.  People seem to think that because a guy may write with some  giibness he can stand up like a  man and express his thoughts.  The truth is that the average  writer's product is an illusion. It  may look as if he had some free-  flowing gift of expression, but,  in fact, it comes only through  hours of sordid effort.  I personally know writers  whose stuff reads as ihe beautiful, clear thoughts of. well-adjusted thinkers, but talk something like Clifton Finnigan or,  more often, not ai all.  In fact,  one    of    my .friends,  probably  the   most   lucid   newspaperman, in Canada, found himself horribly trapped into giving  an  address  before    a    luncheon]  club,     and    turned    up,    panic-/  stricken  and in utter confusion,;  carrying a map of Ireland to illustrate some forgotten point in ,  his talk.        . '  Around about the dessert  course he leaned over to the  chairman, wild-eyed and damp of  brow, mumbled something about  going cut to find some thumbtacks, staggered out of the room  and never came back.      ���  It is just the kind of think that  might happen to me.  a student under Mr.  Henderson he is again returned to the House     h      wf_rf_ _��� '   p���pnt    prif,vpj        oculations   and   vaccinations   ag  and also Mr. S.

Many of the common  forms of cancer can be cured, if  they are found early. If you have  reason to suspect you may have  cancer, see a qualified physician  at once. Delay is dangerous.

Norm Killam, a well-known  student of Roberts Creek has  left with his parents for Haney.  Norm was a Grade X student,  and took part in all school activities. His absence from second  base position in the Senior Softball Team will be sorely felt.  So long and good luck to a swell  sport-  Mr. Trueman and Mrs. Day  have brought up a swell plan for  our final school party this year:  All the high school is to go on  a dancing cruise on the "Lady  Alexandra" around Howe Sound  on June 16. The Union Steamship is holding its anniversary  celebration and has very kindly  agreed to take the high school  students on this trip. Chances  are this ���will be the best high  school party ever.  At a meeting of the Student  Assembly, Mr. Trueman informed the students that so far only  $7 has been raised toward buying school pins, and that a sum  of around $20 is needed. The  Assembly voted not to have the  dies for tlie pins cast until 25  subscriptions have been sent in  for pins. Everyone is asked to  send money in soon, so we can  have our pins before school term  is over.  Mr. G. Ballentine was up on  June 8 to the school and took  pictures of all the High School  students. These pictures will be  on  sale later.  Mr. Ballentine has taken some  very fine pictures of last year's .  graduating class.. This picture is  on    display   in *Mr.    Trueman's  room.  Next year, the high school will  be bigger, so we are to have an  extra teacher. The new teacher,  Mr. Goosetry, has already arrived, and taken iip residence  in Gibsons. :  So-long everybody, and don't  forget those nice juicy exams  that are coming up.

For several months now the  four school teams have been  playing softball games every  noon hour. Here is the official  standing of the teams. House 3  under Captain Jackie Nestman,  is in the lead with a score oi 23  points. In second place is House  2, unaer Pat Slinn, with a score  of 16 points. In third place is  team 4 witn .a total of 11 points,  captain, Earle King, and in last  place is team 1 under Kim Elliot  with a score of 8 points.

The best  hits were made by members of  ine bechelt team with three-base  hits by Al Jackson and Dick  Clayton. Gibsons pitchers were  Jack Nestman and Pat Slinn. Al  Jackson pitched for the Sechelt  team. Jackie Nestman struck out  two for Gibsons and Al Jackson  struck out one for Sechelt;  Un May 3U, the Junior Girls  Club put on a fine tumbling display ior the general public. The  girls certainly did their stunts  spendidly which shows how de-  ligently they practised. A lot of  ciedit is due their friendly and  helpful instructors, Mrs. D.  Davies and Miss Wagner. The  audience was not as big as was  expected; maybe this is because  people do not realize the girls'  efforts. So next time the girls  have an open night be sure and  attend���they deserve some a'tten-  visit.  The ladies of Sechelt West entertained at tea in honor of Mrs.  Duncan McColl at the home of  Mrs. C. Arnold recently. Twenty-  five guests were present.

Also noticed Hugh Buckley  staying with his friends, Mr. and  Mrs. R. S. Hackett. Tells us he  is leaving for England shortly.  We are sorry to hear that Mrs.  Lawrence has gone to Vancouver  to hospital. We shall miss her  and that ever-ready cup of coffee. Hope it is nothing serious  and that she will be back soon.  She is thought of very highly  hereabouts and we know her  many friends will be anxious  about her.  Mrs. C. Wheeler is just back  after a month's holiday in Victoria where she visited Mr. and  Mrs. Jack Wheeler and family.  Nice to see Mr. and Mrs. Joe  Gardiner, Gail i_nd Joe at the  Buxley cottage. We like to see  these young people back with us  once more. .  Sorry to hear that Val Morrison is another one down with  measles. Cheer up, Val. It won't  be too bad.
