THE COAST NEWS, Friday, Sept. 30, 1949  3  NOTING a deficit in the BC hospital insurance scheme for the  first year, and a sharp rise in hospital costs at the same  time,.

J. NAYLOR  ROBERTS CREEK  Phone Roberts Creek 24K  Choice  THIS CAPITAL is interested in  reports from Ottawa that former Premier John Hart may be  the province's next lieutenant-  governor, succeeding Hon  Charles A. Banks, when his term  of office expires in a year or  two.  If Mr Hart should take the  position he would be the third  British Columbian to hold the  province's two highest offices.  The only other two were Hon  James Dunsmuir and Hon E. G.  Prior, both of whom were premier and later lieutenant-governor, the former retiring in 1909  and the latter dying at Government House in 1920.  ��� Mr Hart would be a popular  choice as lieutenant-governor. He  and his quiet, gracious wife  would be the perfect couple in  the big mansion that the taxpayers keep up for the representative of the King in this  province. Mr Hart's the born  host, generous to a fault, a believer in lavish hospitality, a  stickler for etiquette and protocol.  PROGRESS ON PGE  Premier Byron Johnson in recent days has inspected extension work on the PGE between  Quesnel and Prince George. He  must have been astonished at  the progress made in a comparatively short time, for work only  started in July. People up north  are now calling the PGE "Boss'  Johnson's railway���for he was  the one who didn't only talk  about extending the road, but  went ahead and actually started  the job. For that he will go down  in our political history ������ as a  genius, if the road eventually  pays, as a blunderer if people  get the idea more millions were  plunged into a railway that could  never be worth anything anyway. That is a chance that heads  of governments must take. They  must think out their problems  well, make their decisions, stand  by them and hope for the best.  A government with a shillyshallying head can never be a  good government. There must be  bold decisions from the top.  RAISING THE CASH  While the premier was looking  over the tearing away of the  forest to make way for his new  repair and construction will be  sought, in order to save duplication of time and effort on both  sides when support was being  sought on behalf' of member  boards in areas for road maintenance or construction.  railway, his minister of finance,  Hon Herbert Anscomb, was in  Toronto talking to-the big eastern Canadian money men, raising the dollars to extend the  PGE. Mr Anscomb took off from  the capital by air and he was  in fine fettle, sure he would be  able to raise $20,000,000 at three  percent. He had no hesitation in  saying "the province's finances  are in good repute in the eastern market." The government-  controlled B.C. Power Commission will get $7,000,000 of. the  new loan for its rapidly expanding services; another $11,000,000  or so will go into roads and  railway building.  Looking out on the province  from Victoria, it is easy to see  that British Columbia is on the  march. Certainly the government  is spending plenty of money, but  that is what the people want.  They told the government last  June the great spending program was OK by them. The  government put up the program  and the public endorsed it.  There should be no misunderstandings on that score. That's  the way democracy works.  The Old Established  Genera!

Wilson Creek  Garage  LAST WEEK the Coast News presented the  main reasons for having a Parent-Teacher  Association. This week we follow^ up the  theme with the reasons why everyone should  BELONG to a Parent-Teacher Association.  BECAUSE no improvement in school conditions is possible until a strong public opinion  approves and demands it.  BECAUSE   no   group   can   influence   public  opinion and public school officials so success  fully as  an  enthusiastic,   interested   group  of  parents.  BECAUSE full and free discussion of general  school problems in a meeting of teachers and  parents often solves petty difficulties without  friction,  or prevents them.  BECAUSE' there is no better way to acquaint parents with v school conditions, or to  arouse their interest in improvements than  through a parent-teacher association which  meets  regularly to consider such matters.  BECAUSE discipline usually becomes easy  when a child realizes that father, mother and  teacher not only understand each other but  are   working   together.  BECAUSE acquaintance with parents makes  possible a more  intelligent understanding by  the teacher of the children's needs, potentialities, and limitations.  BECAUSE intelligent understanding by parents of the work and methods of the school  usuaHy helps to develop loyalty among the  children and as a result the teachers' efforts  become more effective.  BECAUSE parents and teachers engaged in  a common enterprise will work better and  accomplish more when they know each other  well.  BECAUSE school methods are changing and  parents need to know in general what the  changes are and why they are necessary.  BECAUSE of the interest it generates toward education and child in community wel  fare.  BECAUSE some organizations not interested  ;n schools or child welfare may press for legislation inimical to education or child development. In such cases it is well that there be a  strong and growing organization looking after  the  interests of childhood.  BECAUSE it is an ideal medium for helping to build a spirit of confidence, fair dealing and goodwill among the nations and races  of the world.  Incorporation - An Opportunity io Spend Tax Money  WITHIN A FEW WEEKS the question of incorporating  Sechelt as a village  will again  be presented to the taxpayers of the affected  area.  The committee set up by the Sechelt Peninsula Board of Trade is studying the various  aspects of the problem and will present a  clear cut picture of the advantages and disadvantages of being incorporated a_5 the next  meeting. It is expected that the board will  then call a public meeting to discuss the matter further with those taxpayers in the area  who are not members of the Board of Trade.  There are many advantages to living in an  incorporated area but we feel the greatest  advantage is the fact that the taxpayer is  given an opportunity to decide what his tax  dollar will be spent on. Through his elected  council or commission, the taxpayer is able  to direct that the tax money be spent oh  needed local improvements such, as a water  system, fire protection, and street lighting.  The taxpayer can also protect his investment  in his property by directing his council or commission to institute building restrictions to  ensure that a glue factory or iron works is not  built, adjoining choice residential property. He  can promote better businesses and services by  having the village council create and enforce  by-laws governing business practices such as  restricting the nmber of any one type of business so as to avoid over-crowding the field  and  ruining existing business services.  Sechelt is in an enviable position as far as  incorporating because much of the groundwork  such as planning a townsight, laying on water  and building roads has already been done. The  main thoroughfares are Provincial Highways  and would always be maintained by the Provincial Department of Public Works even  though the area were an incorporated village.  On the surface it would appear that all is to  be gained and nothing lost by incorporating.  However there are no doubt several disadvantages which the committee now studying the  problem will uncover and consider before presenting their report to the Board of Trade  next month.  In the meantime it is an interesting subject and warrants the earnest consideration  of all property owners in the Sechelt area.  Serious consideration of the matter now will  make it possible for all to intelligently discuss the matter and arrive at the proper decision when the question is presented at a public meeting.
