Clarence  was  asked  his reactions to the enfranchisement of the Indians by the B.C.  government.    With    hardly   any  hesitation  Clarence  gave  a very  comprehensive   report   on   what  has been achieved by the native  brotherhood and told the meeting  that   though   the   native   Indians  would   not   benefit   very   much  from   this  move  on   the   part  of  the   government,   that   it   would  allow them when the time comes  in dealing with the federal government,   a   stronger   voice.    Of  course   the  usual  question  came  to the fore regarding the liquor  problem and the Indian and we  were thinking during this debate  that could the Indian buy liquor  which is legally sold to his white  brother, he would most likely be  just as well behaved as we have  seen   many   white  people   under  the influence of liquor.  We  were   impressed   with   the  clean-cut personality of Mr. Maclntyre and although he acknow-  ���.    lodged  he did not know all the  answers, we felt that he did very  well by what he did know.   Especially dear to us  was  his remarks re future revenue for this  area and as we had visioned long  ago,  he sees also,  a  sportsman's  paradise with our wonderful bays  and   inlets   and   miles   of   coastline which will someday make a  wonderful   scenic   highway.    He  explained   that  it  would  not  be  "ion;?    before    the    highway,   via  Squamish,   would   be   an   accomplished   fart,   with   tourists   coming  from  the  States  every year,  now   on   the   lookout   for   other  places to go.  Of course it would perhaps not  interest us from a standpoint of  speed, it would be definitely a  tourist  attraction.  Our outlet, we feel sure, is a  car ferry from Gibsons to Horseshoe Bay.  He gave us a few sidelights on  the hospital scheme. Promised  if returned, not to align himself  with any party, but as a straight.  Independent   Coalitionist.  He has an enviable war record  touched on briefly by his campaign manager, Mr. Harry Davies. He is a resident of. the  rid'ng, coming to Powell River  as a small boy. He is married  and an hotel owner. As Mr. Davies says, does not come to us  looking for a job as. he has a  very good business, but he wishes to serve on the behalf of the  riding in which he lives on the  side of the government and we  feel .sure in our humble opinion  that we shall get more for our  district in being with the government than 'agin' it as we have  been for so long.  One feature of the meeting was  the hearty sin^ng of O Canada,  played by Mrs. Gadd. The words  were placed before the meeting  by us as we have noticed that  at so many meetings two versions  are being sung only to peter out  in indicision.  Mr. Maclntyre was very pleased with this, as he is an intensely patriotic Canadian. How could  he be otherwise with five years  overseas?  The meeting was very ably  conducted by E. Parr Pearson,  piesideht Sechelt Liberal Assn,  and music by Mrs. Gadd of Selma Park.  Tuesday, May Twenty-fourth, Nineteen Forty-nine  Schools Weetletl ... industrially as well as educationally  THAT THE four school units on the Peninsula  are needed is not even being debated. The  main question seems to "oe, how much will it  cost each taxpayer, and what will he receive  from such a program.  The cost will be $305,000 for $600,000 worth  of buildings; this is computed at about one  cent per day per taxpayer, or around five  dollars per year.  To those who might find it difficult to  even add another five dollars per year to their  expenses, there will be ample opportunity to  earn this and much more from the added impetus given the income of the Peninsula from  a $600,000 building program. Of this figure an  estimated $400,000 will be paid ��� out in wages  In other words the taxpayers in this school  district are being asked to spend $305,000 in  order to get $400,000 back in cash in the form  cf wages, as well as an improved school system which will vastly enhance the value of  their property. The remaining $200,000 will be  spent to a large extent for materials to be supplied by^ local mills and from local building  supply houses.  It is safe to assume that abgut eighty percent of, this money that will go into the building  of the schools will remain on the Peninsula  to circulate and work for us. Any person who  votes against such a scheme is deliberately  retarding the growth of the Peninsula not  only  educationally but  financially.  On May 28, the ratepayers have the opportunity of signifying if they want a half  million dollar industry (in the-firm of a school  building program) to come to this Peninsula.  At the same time they will be indicating if they  wish our younger generation to be educated  on a par with other progressive areas or if  they want them huddled together in overcrowded, un ventilated, one room schools without modern sanitary facilities. Who would inflict such a future on our young people?  Publicize tfee Peninsula .. .good roads will follow  TOO OFTEN the public are inclined to put the  cart before the horse. We believe that this  is the case  with our attitude about the roads  on this Peninsula.  We must realize that we, the people of  the province of British Columbia, have elected and pay salaries to the members of our  Legislative Assembly at Victoria so that they  will conduct the business of our Province to  our 'best interests.  It is only reasonable to expect then that  in an area as large as curs, with so few .cars  in use on the roads, that little of the public  funds are going to be spent on building roads.  We feel that in demanding good roads so  that we can attract more people, we are putting the cart before the horse. We must attract more people first, then demand better  reads. X  There is so much natural beauty and attractions such as fishing, hunting, mountain  climbing, skiing, boating, bathing, etc., that  with some effort being expended to publicize  these, the population would grow even faster  than it is growing today. With a, larger population the improvements will come.  To the family planning a holiday, roads  haye become a secondary consideration. If  people are anxious to see or go to a place, bad  roads will deter very few of them. Many tourists welcome a chance to drive their cars over  rough country to prove what good cars they  have. Any fisherman ���will forget how rough  the' road was if he returns with a good catch  of fish. Any hunter will smile as he bumps his  way home over bad roads if he has shot, his  limit for the day. An enjoyable day or week,  enjoying the priceless scenery, bathing in the  refreshing blue waters of the sea or the lakes,  soon takes the sting out of having to bump over  a poor highway to get there.  '- If the residents of this Peninsula would  exert even half the energy toward inducing  tourists and visitors, that we spend complaining  about the roads, we would have a very lucrative tourist industry dumped into our lap.  Tourists Don't Just Happen ���.. they are cultivated  WE WHO live on this glorious Peninsula are  too often inclined to expect the tourists to  seek us out, rather than put forth some effort  to seek them out and tell them about our  wondrous  vacationland.  Once having encouraged them in some  way to come and see our Peninsula, we should  make every effort to have our "Houseclean-  ing" all done, our front yard spotlessly clean  and be ready to. entertain our visitors.

Our beaches should be cleared of logs and  debris early in the spring while we have the  advantage of high tides to carry the rubbish  away to sea, our. business places and hotels  should be painted ana stand shining clean as  an invitation to visitors to enter.  Informative folders on the beauty spots  available, and directions for getting there  should be available in every store and restaurant. '  , We, as residents, should educate ourselves  on the geography and points of interest  throughout the Peninsula so that we can intelligently answer visitors' questions about  where to go and what to do.  All these things should be done in our  own interest. Just as a smart merchandiser  keeps his goods well displayed and teaches his  clerks to extoll the good points of his merchandise to customers, we should make an effort +o sell this Peninsula on its many good  points.

FOLLOWING up my last week's  talk on the advantages of  membership in the Credit Union,  I would like to pass on to you  a very important item which  came to my notice recently, and  which will give you, the reader,  an insight as to how far Credit  Unions as a whole can go and  what benefits may be derived by  the individual.  The Swift Current Credit Union is typical of the more than  , 25,000 branches. With its population of roughly 7000, it shows  how a co-operative enterprise in  home banking can grow. Since  its inception in 1941, it boasts  of no less than 630 members.  This may or may not seem interesting to the reader. But the  astounding-sum of $108,896 worth  of shares had been purchased by  members cf this branch in 1949.  Shows with what confidence and  personal interest these peopl*  look to the future. Withdrawals  for the purchase of "machinery,,  new homes and land amounted  to approximately $83,057, leaving a net gain for the year of  $26,839. And during the same  period the sum on deposit rose  from $16,539 to $36,351. It is'  worthy of note that since its  humble beginning, the S.C.C.U.  has loaned $444,234 to its members. There's a story in itself  Figures do not mean very  much to the average person,  When scanning the paper, what  many of us like to see is some- ���  thing relating tc advantage or  gain, and we often pass up a  good thing because we do not interest ourselves in figures.  Today every  loan up to $10,-  000   is   insured   under  the   Cuna  plan. (I will explain Cuna later.)  Should the death of the borrower  occur, his loan is paid in full to  the   Credit  Union  by   an  insurance conripany, and the estate of :,  the deceased receives  the    note  .  "paid in full." This safety cover- 7  age , is financed by a. seven per-   j  cent levy per annum on all loans.  I  One cannot stress too much the 'i  personal advantages to be gained k  by this fine  co-operative move- |  ment, though it must be clearly J  understood,     as     the    president |  pointed out, the group as a whole Jj  cannot take  out more  than  the ��  group as a whole puts in���which |  is sound logic. a J  And as you will readily see, |ji  it is the duty of all members to if  purchase as many shares as pos- I  sible. You can't lose. It's your ||  bank. It's something cf which -|  you must play an integral part. |  When you are a shareholder, you fj  have a voice in the organization. I  You are part of it.

NESTMAN  IT   IS   SOMETHING   of   a   com-  j      mentary on our lives,  perhaps  ,   a hopeful commentary, that under certain stresses many  of  us  .'  seem  capable  of forgetting  ourselves, our private interests,  our  partisan  thinking  and  our  guiding prejudices.  DURING the past weekend the  High School senior boys' team  played the Recreation Club in  a softball game at the school  grounds. The game was a long, WI NOTES  hard, drawn-out one, but the  Recreation Club won by a score  of  18-13.  SBtaB&SBlaBBBBa.

It   was   one   of  B,  those grim tragic items that most  J  of us read and hasten to forget.  j  But,  fcr those whom it touched  more closely,  it  was  more than  J  that.  It was  the  experience,  the  momentary   experience   perhans,  of   a   better     and     more   kindly  world.    Here    were    two    little  schoclgirl friends, the one's parents   were   Roman   Catholic   and  the other Protestant. Perhans the  dogmas   and   the   mutual   prejudices that draw so sham a line  between the two great branches  of  the  Christian   church   are   no  less acute in Sturgeon Falls, Ontario,   then   they   are   elsewhere.  But they could be forgotten, for  the   moment   at   least,     by   the  town's   Catholics   gathered   in   a  United   church  to  share  its  sorrow.   They   were  forgotten  as  a  dav   later   Protestants   joined   in  the ratholic service for a Catholic child.  Down in San Marino, California, little Kathy Fiscus died her  small lonely death while a  breathless world waited in sorrow and dismay. It was slow and  torturing and cruelly dangerous  work as men dug like moles to  reach the trapped girl���a child  they had never seen. Water appeared in the shaft and men  looked at one another in consternation, knowing its meaning,  knowing also the desperate added hazard it implied. But  "Whitey," one of the diggers,  angrily   demanded    to    be   sent  At one point in the game the  school team was only one run  behind the club. Pitcher for the  club during most of the game  was Norym MacKay, while the  school team had Jim Smith and  Jackie Nestman as pitchers.  Several of the school players  lived at Roberts Creek and cycled down earlier in the day.  One Creek player, Wally Sand-  berg, played a very fine game  despite  an  injured  ankle.  Jimmy Shutze, who played on  the Recreation Club team, made  three home runs during the contest. Some muscles that guy must  have!  During the last quarter of the  game, Don Brown, who had injured his foot, was replaced bv  T-ed Parnwell. It seems during  the first half of the game no one  knew where Ted was���could it  be Norma's  fault?  One High School player, Bill  Pye, has joined the Recreation  Club, and at the game he played  against his own school team'of  which is manager! What a setup!  A Grade 11 student, Don  Brown, has set a record for broad  jumping this year. The other  day at a practice he jumped 19  feet six inches. Not bad, eh?  What is the guy?���man or kangaroo? '  On May 17 the High School  girls' team played the Elementary  girls' team. The senior girls were  victors by a close margin.  During the course of the game,  Norma Wallis, one of the senior  players, was hit across the ear  by a bat. But that is all the misfortune  that  took  place.

Coalition  lamination convention termed it  Ine of the most "impressive and  lincere"  they  had  ever listened  !  t It was not a "smart" speech.  it contained no dramatic over-  lures, no calculated subleties, no  ;neers at his opponent or the opposition.  6  | It was a sober, thoughtful address by a young man, conscious  |f his responsibilities to himself  ind the people he would represent. Here are some extracts: '  "I am not a politician. I have  bts to learn, but I will not let  me people  of . Mackenzie  down.  f ���   ���  i "I am a straight Coalition candidate. I told both Liberal and  onseryative delegates that I  vould not accept a nomination  .rom either as their candidate to  accept their endorsation as a  Coalition candidate, if they saw  fit to recommend me.

"I do not intend, at, any time  in this campaign, to waste the  electors' time on personalities. I  believe in Coalition.

Many of these statements  might not be considered "good  politics."

Manageress of the Sechelt Inn  from April of 1943 until the  spring of 1949 when she was  hospitalized. Mrs. Frederickson  was very highly thought of not  only by her employers, the Union  Steamships Ltd., but by the  residents of the district.  A champion of Indian rights,  she was responsible for many  prejudices against the local natives being eliminated and having them accepted on a social  par with the white at such public functions as dances, shows,  concerts, etc.  She took many Indian girls  under her wing and treated them  as her own daughters: One girl  she'took with her on a trip to  Alaska and the girl was considered to be an Indian princess  and treated as such. The couple  were welcomed at many public  functions and given the place of  honor at the captain's table  aboard ship. On one occasion the  captain of the ship personally  escorted them over points of interest at one of the stopping  places.  On a trip to California she took  another local Indian girl with  her and she too was treated like  a  member  of the  royal family.  When one of her favorites was  sick she arranged to have her  hospitalized. On the girl's return  she was sent to bed for several  months and Mrs. Frederickson  dug down in her own pocket and  paid to have a bright, sunny  room built for the sick girl so '  that she would have a nice place  to  lie   in.  restaurants in Vancouver. In  1943 she sold her interest "in  Princess Louise Candy and Tea  Room in Vancouver to accept the  position as manageress of the  Sechelt Inn.  Her father, Robert Paul For-  shaw, was' a prominent .contractor, in Canada He specialized in  the construction of cathedrals.  He .was brought from the east  in 1898 to build the Holy Rosary  Cathedral  in  Vancouver.  Left to mourn her passing are  her husband, F. Frederickson, Sechelt; a brother, Albert Forshaw,  of West Vancouver, and three  sisters, Mrs. Vanstone, Los Angeles; Mrs. M. Daly, Portland,  Oregon; Mrs. E. Ruo, Hollywood,  For Log Dump  Granted Again  WORD was received over the  week-end that G. P. Melrose,  deputy minister Of lands, ��� has  extended the lease of the headlands at Gibsons to local loggers  to continue using the area as a  log dumping ground.  The decision was made after  a protest meeting had. been called by residents of the district  who opposed the granting of the  license on the grounds that the  loggers were responsible for the  messy beaches and interefered  with access to the property by  water.  At the meeting James Sinclair,  MP, advocated that a new log  dump be located beyond Hopkins, but until such time as that  was accomplished, the loggers  should be allowed to continue operation  at  the  Headlands.

Born in  Newfoundland in 1898, she was  brought to Vancouver at the age  of .three where she received her  schooling and won several local  beauty contests.  ��� In' the 1920's she was manageress of a hotel at Moclip, Washington. From that job she joined  Max Factor who was starting to  manufacture and market cosmetics. She attained a very high  position with that rapidly expanding firm before she left to  join a large American drug company.  Returning to Vancouver, she  joined the Vancouver Drug Co.  and held a responsible position  in   their  cosmetic  department.  She travelled extensively during her life, making several trips  as a nurse aboard the Annie  Johnson, a steamship operating  from Los Angeles to Stockholm,  Sweden.  , From 1931 to 1934 she was in  charge of Vaucroft Lodge on  Thornby Island, and later she  managed several coffee shops and  MR.

Mr. Howard was  very gratified to find so many  there for the usual business and  the meeting enjoyed an informal  time with the two visitors. We  were very interested to hear as  never "before , the machinery involved in connection with the  running of an election and Mr.  Howard's brief talk on his visit  to the House of Commons recently and also on the convention  when Mr. St. Laurent was made  Prime   Minister.  We wish to welcome to Sechelt  the new manageress at the Inn.  Mrs. Jane Copper the widow of  Major H. W. Cooper who was  killed in action in Caen in 1944.  Mrs. Cooper is from the south  coast of England and tells us  that she entertained many Canadians during the war and made  many friends amongst them. She,  like many other English women,"  worked in the S.A. Canteen. She  has a daughter, still in England  attached to the British navy (being a P.O. in the W.R.N.S.) and  one son Michael who is with her  here in Sechelt and will be attending  our school.  Michael has been in boarding  school on Vancouver Island  where Mrs. Cooper had a position at a resort. She went there  direct from England in  1947.  Mrs. Cooper brings many years  of experience* in the hotel busi-.  ness to us: Major and Mrs. Cooper operated a restaurant in the  Midlands and a country hotel in  the Cotswolds. She and her son  Michael are looking forward to  their sojourn in Sechelt and  hope to make the acquaintance  of the people soon. The friendly  atmosphere has already been  noticed by Mrs. Cooper and appreciated. We for one have noticed the friendly spirit of this  lady who in true English tradition invited your correspondent  for a spot of tea so dear to the  English heart, and we are sure  we can look forward to a'pleasant standard of comfort and hospitality at Sechelt Inn.  Well its a certainty that we  can't please everyone and its aiso  an old saying and a true one that  there is something wrong with  the person that everyone agrees  with. As for us if we are 'agin it'  we'll say so, that is our privilege.  The items in our column in this  paper are our own and not the  responsibility of the Editor.' Naturally he deletes a few items that  don't sound so good but we do  take, exception to being blamed  for something in which we had  no part. We refer to the startling  headline in last week's Coast  News about "Canadian Legion  refuses firemen use of the Hall."  Well here is that famous opinion just spoken about. ..Refused  the hall, well, why not? Does  the Community ever give anything free gratis and for nothing  to these veterans? These men  paid for years for , the privilege  of sitting in the Tea room of Union Steamships Co. amongst the  debris of Saturday night's dance  and the odd'rat or two. The W.A.  also paid every month and quite  often had to climb through the  window to hold the meeting (the  key was often missing). Finally  the Legion were able to obtain a  lot at a very reasonable figure  from a lady in Vancouver who  was in sympathy with the problems of our veterans and through  hard work on the part of Secretary Jack Mayne and Treasurer  Frank French she finally parted  with her property. All the old  veterans gave a few dollars, even  those on the smallest pensions  gave their five dollars, which^  meant that they would that  month go without something  needed. They have struggled along and have now gone into  debt to give Sechelt and of  course themselves a larger hall.  We for one regret this action as  the smaller hall was adequate for  the Legion affairs. If various organizations expect to get it rent  free where will the Legionaires  make Hheir revenue? If they go  bankrupt Provincial Command  takes over. After all, the Legion  is a voluntary organization also,  it does a lot of good never heard  of by the general public, have  numerous calls for their cash and  many cases of distress amongst  their own people of which a  grateful public he^ars very little  and does even "less.  The hall has from time to time  been donated free to the Teenagers, the V.O.N, clinic and others. The time now has come for a  charge to be made to get the  veterans out of the red as it  were. If one group of people get  it free others will expect it too.  It's too bad such a controversy  has  arisen. ,  These   men   are   heroes   every  TKE COAST NEWS.

Let us- see their side of the picture, and instead of knocking  them give them a helping hand.  They pay their, fire insurance,  and if the local group feels that  their hall should burn to the  ground in case of fire, "we feel  sure there is not one man in our  volunteer fire department that  hasn't got the greatest respect  for our war veterans both old  and new and who would not come  tearing to their assistance in time  of trouble.

On Monday evening, May 16,  in the pavilion, B. M. "Bat" Maclntyre, Coalition "candidate for  the Mackenzie riding, addressed  a large audience.  E. Parr Pearson, president of  the local Liberal Association,  first introduced Harry Davies,  campaign manager for the candidate. Mr. Davies gave a brief  and concise sketch of the candidate's  background.  In a well integrated address,  Mr. Maclntyre expressed his belief that the issue before the  people was very clear���a choice  of vcting Coalition, which on  the strength of its past record  he believes to be the best government the province has ever  had, or of voting CCF which  advocating socialism and state  control could prove a costly experiment to the progress of British Columbia.  In speaking of the Coalition  achievements   he   mentioned:  1. Hospitalization Plan ��� A  definite step in the right direction. He refuted the popular notion that there are insufficient  beds available by stating in effect that there are enough but  not in the right places���a situation which is being remedied by  degrees.  2. The $30,000,000 Highway  Program.  tie went on to say that the  educational system of B.C. is  the most advanced in Canada  (he appealed to the people to  vote "Yes" on the coming school  bylaw in District 46); that iri the  field of social service B.C. is the  first province to augment old age  pensions; that the Aluminum Co.  has been induced to spend up to  $2,000,000 in research in the  province,' and in the event of a  site in Bute Inlet or Gardiner  Canal being chosen the company  would be prepared to spend 300  to 350 million, in the process  creating a-city of 50,000..  At this point Mr. Maclntyre  stated thai it was not his intention to knock ihe opposition,  merely to express his beliefs and  leave ihe choice to the people.  Bui it was his belief thai neither  the people nor capital needed io  build ihe province would be attracted by a socialist government.  In reference to the province  as a whole, he promised that if  elected  he  would  advocate:  Amendment to Bill 39^ to  change the L5i percent vote in  favor of striking to a 66% majority.  Amendment of the Compensation Act to boost the 2500 maximum to 3500 in order to prevent a lowering of the standard  of living while on compensation.  An increase in pensions to  widows with two children to not  less than $100 monthly.  Mr. Maclntyre said, in speaking of the Mackenzie riding, that  with its approximate 2000 miles  of coastline, stretching from the  north shore of Howe Sound to  Bella Coola, there is no more  important riding in the province,  with its five major industries,  logging, fishing, pulp and cement making, and lime production; with open ports, potential  water supply, protected waters  in. inlets, it could be one of the  finest resort areas in the country.  He pointed out that with representation on1 the side of the  government better things can be  had. If elected he' would fight  for bigger appropriations for the  district..  For the Peninsula Mr. Maclntyre felt- that surfacing should  be started on the roads and com-  _H,________H______n_s_-_B_Hn_n_____B  9   *& .*  mon sense dictated that a cer-  tin amount be- done each year.  He would advocate continuance  of the Squamish road down the  north side to Gibsons, which  would bring tourists to the Peninsula.  The address ended with a  promise if elected to visit every  poll at least once a year and' an  appeal to get out and vote.  In regard to a question from  Mrs. Alice French regarding the  payment of hospital insurance  for veterans, Mr. Maclntyre replied that the matter is a federal affair and that one of the  resolutions at the forthcoming  Canadian Legion convention in  Victoria would be asking that the  Department of Veterans Affairs  pay the hospital insurance.  In answer to questions regarding a liquor store at Sechelt and  the necessity of holding a plebiscite, Mr. Maclntyre replied that  a liquor store was a service we  should have on the Peninsula  unless the majority were opposed to it, and that while a plebiscite was not necessary, he himself would not be so foolish as  to advocate one without first  finding out the wishes of the  people.  A question regarding the In-  'dian franchise brought the reply,  that the provincial granting gave  only the right to vote.  Last, but not least in the meeting, Clarence Joe, Sechelt representative of the Native Brotherhood of B.C., spoke briefly on  the subject. In effect, he said  that expecting the federal government to move first the granting of the right to vote by the  provincial government took them  by surprise.. While considered as  adults they are still wards of  the federal government and the  vote only gives them power to  voice their grievances to the  government. The Native Brotherhood is waiting for a new federal  act and hopes it will give them  full privileges. B.C. is the first  province to grant voting power  to  the Indians.

Then  MORE   ABOUT  Maclntyre Makes  (Continued From Page 1)  they all agreed that he was "a  fine type of a man, and very  sincere," which sums it all up  in   a  nutshell.  James Sinclair, MP, a very interested spectator in the audience, said-he "couldn't resist a  political meeting." He was on  his way to Roberts Creek, where  he and his family have a summer home for the season. He  will address meetings here June  6 in the afternoon at Granthams,  and in the evening of that day  in Gibsons. Mr. Maclntyre promised that he would have Hon. Mr.  Carson on the platform here with  him at a further meeting June  8, when he will get some statement from the minister on roads,  pur burning question.

Well the Howe Sound First  Aid Competition held at the  Beach here, Saturday, May 7 was  more than we'll attended. A grand  crowd came from Port Mellon,  Woodfibre and 'Squamish. Sorry  to say our boys lost the cup by  one point cnly to Port Mellon,  so congratulations to Port Mellon. I believe they came over  on their own doings, the company were not behind "them, so  I'm sure things will be different  next year, as its wonderful work.  All the teams were in perfect  crder. Everything in drill order.  As much as we hated to lose the  cup, it makes the competition  more keener. The dance following it reminded me of New  Years. What a crowd there was.  Stan Nichols and his orchestra  were up and a good time was had  by all and better luck next year.  Well, I have a new niece and  not a nephew. I think I was more  disappointed than my sister, Mrs.  J. Fort. Ncrma Johanne, 8 lbs.,  arrived Saturday, May 7 and all  are doing well, even father.  Like to send congratulations  to Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Lowther  who have a daughter.  Mrs. Harry Noble is spending  a week in Vancouver.  Well we have picked Sheila  Fleming only daughter of Mr.  and Mrs. R. Fleming for our Copper Queen to be held May 28 and  sure hope it keeps this weatner  up for it,- as it always seems to  have a hoodoo, it seems to rain.  Mr. and Mrs. Bill McDonald  and Sharon are up for the long  weekend at Mr. and Mrs. T. Wills.  Had a grand day at Porteau  last Sunday. Had lunch with  Ruth and Bob Mulliner and sup-  per with Mr. and Mrs. Wittier.  They now have two Shetland  ponies and a cute donkey and  also a big black bear. As soon, as  they can they are making picnic  grounds with tables and hot water.  It's such a beautiful spot.

To The School Board,  Sechelt School District No. 46:  LADIES AND Gentlemen of the  Board���In the recent issue of  Coast News, May 10, in Consolidation of Madeira Park, Irvines  Landing School would not be  incorporated owing to transportation difficulties.  Until the paper was issued  many of the taxpayers were unaware that Irvines Landing  School was being rejected as  original plan was to incorporate  all schools.  There must be some mistake  somewhere, as Irvines Landing  School is built on the main and  cnly highway through Sechelt  Peninsula. Admitted the road is  in ver; poor shape, but no doubt  when the government can spare  the mcney on this highway that  will be remedied, perhaps before  tb - new school is built.  The district being incorporated, the transportation' problem  cruld be solved by two buses  and one water ferry as the Madeira Park School site* is practically equal distance between  Halfmoon  Bay-Irvines  Land in ff.  That's why the Madeira Park'  site was chosen.  The closing of this school  wnuld give the children better  school facilities and it would go  towards the financing of the  school bus if used. I have not access to figures involved and can  "be corrected en any mistakes  made.  At present. Irvines Landing has  onlv 17 ruinils attending up to  grad~ 6. as their grade 7 and up  pupils are being transferred bv  ferry boat to Pender Harbour  superior school, Which is built  on Francis Peninsula adjoining  the Sechelt Peninsula, and if it  was Pender Harbor School that  had transportation difficulties it  would be easier understood.  Franci!. Peninsula has a government float at Murdoch's  Store and another government  float at Donleys Landing where  Pender Harbour School is built,  no government roads, only trails  where the government doesn't  spend $75.00 a year to bush out.  The junior division of this  school is at present being taught  school at Madeira Park.  The reason I mentioned two  buses and one ferry boat is that  a bus could start at Irvines Landing, pick up pupils at bus shelters provided for the children,  pick up Garden Bay children at  Glendale and arrive at Madeira  Park at same time as bus' from  Halfmoon Bay taking the children from Silver Sands and along  the highway. The ferry bus  wuld then be free to pick up  children from Pender Harbour  superior school district.  Capt. Kent and his assistant  do a wonderful job of ferrying  the children to the different  schools.  Also just who is eligible to  vote  on  this  money  by-law?  Is it just property-owners or  does everyone have a vote?  Would you have this explained  as this is the first time a money  by-law has been asked in this  district, and as to date there has  been no meeting held to explain  by respresentatives as had been .  promised.  The distance by road from Irvines Landing School is approximately eight to- 10 miles;  by water inside the harbour,  about IV2 miles.  M. Cameron.  C/o Irvines Landing P.O.,  Pender Harbour.

He then  Editor, Coast News:  SIR���I see by the local press that  a plebiscite has been arranged  by the local School Board in order that the taxpayers on this  Peninsula may vote "Yes" to a  $600,000 investment in four  schools, and that the Provincial  Government is going to pay one-  half of this  cost.  Since I first read of this  proposed   preposterous   expenditure,  i    I have been waiting for a public  meeting   that   I   considered     the  j��   School Board  would  call  in  or-  i   der that this very important project could be thoroughly* discussed,   and  from   which  those  who  undoubtedly will have to pay the  bill will have a fair opportunity  of   deciding   whether   to   answer  "Yes" or "No."  We are given three reasons for  1 this   elaborate   program   on   the  reverse side of a pamphlet that  has     already     been '   circulated,  namely:  1���Good schools attract people  and industry���.rood schools determine very often whether you  have either.  2���Gcod  schools maintain  and ���  increase  property  value.  3���The schools program should-  be a welcome "shot in the arm"  for   the   community,     providing  jobs for many. *  I   consider   these   three   statements utterly ridiculous,  and  do  >:not apply in the slightest to this  community, j  What industry can we attract  here? What 'industry would first  ���determine the type of schools in  a district they decided to become established in? How will  : schools fluctuate property val-  fues? How will schools provide  jobs? Is this not utter nonsense?  The rapid increase in our  techool population has been because of the activities of the  lumber industry, which in this  area is a fast diminishing one,  and I can quote many families,  who supplv the school population, who have moved and are  how ready to move to regions  that have a payroll.  Under such conditions it is obvious that the schools are mainly  fe*a by transient families, who  are compelled to go where they  can depend upon a livelihood,  with the result that the settled  esidents here, consisting mainly cf retired people on small pensions, old age pensioners, pensioners of the ���services, and those  ai small business who are hat-  .irallv affected by the conditions,  ire left to carry the load.  1 We are told' that we ONLY  kay half ($305,000) and that the  Provincial Government pays the  .est.     Who  pays  the  Provincial  overnment?  ( It is far from my intention to  retard progress in our educational system, but I certainly  think that some business reasoning is necessary in our School  Board, and that the taxpayer  should at least have a fair  chance to deliberate upon, the  'matter, and not be railroaded  [into something that he has a  good chance, to be,sorry for. At  least the opportunity might be  offered him to vote "No."  H. W. Aggett.  Editor's Note: In view of the  importance of the school plebiscite and because we feel that  both sides of the question should  be presented, Mr. Aggett's letter was turned over to the  School Board in order that they  might reply before the school  (plebiscite, May  28.  Editor,  Coast News.  SIR���There are several points in  Mr. Aggett's letter which  should not go unanswered in  view of the urgent need for new  school buildings in this district.  In the first place the. school  trustees may be likened to the  directors of a firm of which the  ratepayers are the shareholders.  They are elected each year to  provide the children with the  best educational facilities possible and if their policies are not  in according with the ratepayers they can be removed at the  following election. However, unlike the directors of a corporation, before enacting a large  school program they must first  a.k the ratepayers to approve  the expenditure, which after  careful stud/ is recommended as  being necessary for the school  needs of the district..  The program now contemplated has been approved by the Department of Education and"' will  be voted on May 28. Therefore  there can be no question of railroading. The ratepayers mav express their approval or disapproval on May 28.'  In   regard  to   the  three  state-  "ments   made   in   the   letter    far  from   being   "ridiculous"     ample  proof  has  been  received  of   the  truthfulness of them.  Good schools do attract people and industry. No business  will locate in an area where inadequate schooling is provided.  Families will not go where their  children  cannot be  educated.  There can be no question as  to good schools maintaining and  improving property values. It is  just like having a ramshackle  old house on a piece of propertv  next to yours or a new good-  looking house on the same property. Is there anv doubt as to  whether ycur own property is  affected?  As regards the statement that  employment on the Peninsula  will be helped. It is estimated  that at least two thirds of the'  amount to be spent will be payroll   and  in   addition  local  busi  nessmen also stand to gain. Can  there be any doubt as to the  benefits to be derived from a  program involving the spending  of money on the Peninsula?  The statement that transients  mainly provide the school population and that the lumber industry is a fast diminishing cne  can best be answered by looking at the- past. Logging, instead  of decreasing, has grown in the  past years as evidenced by the  companies large and small now  operating. Some large companies,  in fact, will be here for many,  many more years to come. There  can be no doubt that other businesses will establish here as Van-  c.uver and the prpvince continue  to expand.  Finail , speaking for the  School Board as a whole, we are  convinced that nearly everyone  v/hether with children or not���  would not deliberately try to  withhold proper educational fa-  ciiiies fiH_m the y:ung  ones.  There are many other reasons  for   building   the   schools   which-  have   received   publicity   in   the  press   and  through' other  media.  Yours  truly,  Mrs. L. S. Jackson.  trcls, similar in operation to the  precision of juke box manipulation of phonograph records, is  a working model of a complete  auto parking system being developed in New York. The  owner   of  a   car   drives   in,   sets  puts a coin in the slot and receives   a   claim  token.   When  he  wants his car he goes to the  exit station, drops his claim  token in a slot and waits for his  car to be delivered to him automatically.

Although I am learning to  be a Brownie Guider or Leader,  Miss Elsie Turner is Brown Owl  of the Sechelt Pack.  The hot weather has been  tempting the Brownies into the  water and it is quite understandable that not many nature  notes have been written, those  that were, were forgotten and  left at home. So I shall draw on  my memory this week and try  to tell you some of the quaint,  interesting or curious- things that  the Brownies have told me from  time' to time.  Back in the cold weather,  Dorothy was watching the Blue  Jays eating the crumbs she had  put out f:r them, in the back  yard.

These  books are not really a very efficient record of what has happened during the last school  year but are more for entertainment than anything else. There  is a space in these books for  autographs, and everyone last  week spent their time signing  each others bo:ks. Another interesting feature was the space  for sketches of your friends. Ycu  could draw the sketch in any  manner'you pleased, so the results were not always too complimentary as your former friend  noticed.

As a result of thorough investigation by the School Board and on the advice of competent  * ��� _  educational authorities a program involving the construction of these well designed schools is planned. Their construction  will modernize our school system and provide educational faci lities equal to any. Can we afford to do less for the citizens  of tomorrow?   Who can say our youngsters shouldn't have every opportunity to equip themselves for life's responsibilities.  We Owe  We Owe  We Owe  It to  It to  It to  Ourselves  Our  Our  Community  Children  CHECK THESE FACTS:  Our population is so spread out.that only 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 to  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 with light airy classrooms built on practical lines at a minimum of cost.  In each case a nurse's room is provided and a kitchen to" make  hot lunches, possible. ���-.���_-���  EXTRA!  Don't  miss special   film  showing at your movie house.
