The  Port Mellon road  has  been  assured  for  this  summer.. ..  B.M. Maclntyre, speaking to a group of veterans, announced;  1 "The premier of B.C. told me that the road to Por Mellon  would _ go through, immediately the wheels started to turn in  the plant."  2 Mr Carson (Minister of Public Works) assured'me that' th��  Port Mellon Road w'as not Just a promise, it was a committment.  He would build the road immediately he was assured the plant  would be in operation on a lasting basis."  . The lasting basis clause has  been assured the Minister by  means of a program outline  being submitted to the Department, by the executive of  Canada' Forest Produces.  "There is no question about  the road going in right away,"  Mr Maclntyre announced.  "The road should be reasbir-  ���ably easy to bpild and not a;t  top great1 a cost with the -ex-/  ception of the; bridge which is> -  neccessary  at  Hillside."^:       "  Bridge cost estimates!range1  around the $70,000 mark Eir- '  gineers spent one: day last; week /  looking: over' fhe right .of'^way/';''  It has been suggested changes  are to be made in the present  route.

It is believed the new company, which may be formed in  the   near    future,    will    also  h'andle the company's trucking,  water  taxi  'and   other  water  systems.

It has been well known that  Sorg pulp plants in the United  States have been running short  of basic materials, since the  Scandinavian selling market  was drawn away from U.S.A  buying by virtve of Europe's  immediate needs.

Our greatest assent is our kids and we have some great ones.  Followirig a discussion of newspaper with senior students  in our high school, the speaker, a! member of the firm publishing this paper, found that truly is our greatest asset, our youngsters.  There is somehing good about addressing a classroom and  watching the interest or boredom that plays across the faces of  these young men and women.as they listen, some with interest,  others with a boredom and still others with the look of persons  who just tolerate the speaker. Bu,t most of them with a look of  .anticipation, as if they were actually reaching for more information. *  .We recommend every person in this area to take the opportunity of addressing these youngsters, if the chance is advanced.  It is a. good thing to believe and one cannot talk to a classroom of our youth without first of all getting the ' impression  that our belief in them is well based.  One word of warning. Please do not get the idea these youngsters can be told something in a. slip shod manner. Their minds  are smarter than the average adult's. They think a long way  ahead. This paper's representative found out. that just merely  glancing over a subject was hardly enough. They had to have  detail and they had to have correct information.  These words are in no way "to be ��� construed as defence, if  such be needed, of our educational system or the carriculum  or the teachers. But, never the less, somewhere along the line  .something must have made these young people sit up and take  recognition of things.  World events aire amazingly well relegated to their proper  perspective with them.  A well known Peninsula business man 'recently suggested  that all youngsters should go a certain distance in school then  have to fend for themselves, or at least get out and learn how  to do physical work, then go back to school for further teaching  if such is the pupils' desire.  We cann'ot argue this subject pro or con but we can suggest,  that these youngsters have 'amazingly keen minds and are well  worthy of the future, wich... we shall have to place.in their hands.  Further speakers will be added to the roll of they who have  addressed the senior pupils.  'There; is nothing new in tjais plan of the school's but We  suggest that soon more speakers should* be added to the list. Tlie  school should, in the words of Teacher A. Goosetrey, " get out  and get i^to the community."  We contend this is very important The community and the  adul,ts certainly need these kids to come out and mingle as  scholars, with them.  It will do the world of good to the adult.     \  ag�� of Discovery  _i  Readers Right  EDITOR THE NEWS.  SIR, Editor, Mister.  Me Mikel Blok  from  Prag.

I kiss your hand  Mikel Blok.  EDITOR, THE NEWS  SIR. Your open letter, acl~  \ dressed to me through your  paper (February 1 issue) was  of much interest.. I appreciate  your invitation to answer, but  as you have raised questions  which   would    require    much  time and space to answer fully  and exhaustively, I will have  to confine myself to a few  aspects. /   ' -  My company has been given  a guarantee from the Ferry  people that there will be re~.  served space for two buses at  i'ail times; how much space will  thus be occupied is easily figured out and disposes of your  worry. *  The question of possible over  load buses is being- looked  after a.t the other end; overload -b'uses 'wnl run to and  from the ferries at both terminals.  ���   Over a period of years, the  records of the Black Ball Line  buses   ,have    increased   travel  considerably, and I can assure,  yu that .they are not interest-,  ed  in getting revenue  out  oE  ray buses.  Tourists, a subject you mention in the letter to me, is far  too. big:.a question to be aired  here; I venture to say there  are questions connected with it  which should first be' disposed  of before-' bringing either the  ferries or my company into  the picture.  If through-buses come in^to  service, it wid" mean a lot to .  niainy people. Your rather  cynical remark about women  and children surely does not  solve ~the advantages. Have  you ever thought that old,  crippled and sick people might  halve to go to Vancouver for  medical treatment ? Would it  mean nothing to them to stay  on the bus right through.?      y  To   have    brought  in   the  State of Maine is sp far-fetched  that   it   does   not   deserve   an"  answer.  Let -me/assure you, Mr  Sutherland, that I am not  worrying-that the B.C. Electric  is getting the franchise.  should I? Have you ever heart  of someone- protecting his in^J  terests? This is exactly whaT  I ���am; doing in this case.  "When I bought-the bus lin!  seven years ago I vset out t<|  give service to the resident!  of the Peninsula in the bed  possible manner; I have work!  ed hard to overcome obstacle:  which were indeed most diffijj  cult. I am fully,aware what M  means to. hold' a franchise an  t#  v  P  know  the   responsibilities   ail,  tached to it. The growth of mU  company I suggest, shows tha|  I have kept faiith. Would it no  be idle to sit by when an op  portunity    comes     along  better service? Do��� you��� expecf  me to lessen my efforts to pro|  vide for better service? No JM^  Sutherland, I do not think thai  my work  is  staeking  up. ' 'M  poor service  and  poor publW;  relations". 1  I have learned to mind m|;  own business and onlv by conl  tinning' to.do so, will I be abj^f  to progress.   :;..;'   ;   , ��� \  Cecil  C.

Butler    and'  Albert Edge. ���  The players group is the  youngest, part of the whole.  It was born by virtue of a need  for funds? by the VON.

"We don't want a subsidy."  Captain Peabody told \he  MLA. "If "a company can't  stand on its own feet without  a subsidy, there must be something radically wrong with it."

The government feels it  is a federal responsibility and  the federal government will  not do any changing just for  two provinces. (Saskatchewan  and B.C. are the only two  provinces with their own hospital insurance scheme.)  "Someone," continued the  MLA, "will have to pioneer  this move and it may just as  well be me. There eertainlv is  a need for help in this instance  but I was a lone; voice last  legislature 'and I'm sure it will  just be a repeat performance."  Mr Maclntyre "forecast"  that a; boost would, be coming  next session for recipients of  social service wellfare. "Probably, and this i;is^just plain  guessing, about $15 increase  per month."

It tastes very much like chicken, but it is even tenderer  and  'hiore  tasty.  Rabbit meat is economical  too. It is less expensive than  chicken and the percentage of  bone is. less. All the meat is  white like the breast of chicken  but is morV'! tender because  there is less connective tissue.  Rabbit is a very nutritious  meat too.

The Ninth Decennial Census  of Canada in June this year is  based, on fundamental legal  requirements dating from Confederation. Under Section 51  of the British North America,  1867, it was enaeted that after  the completion of the Census  of 1871, and of etaeh subsequent decennial' census, representation of the provinces  should be readjusted by such  authority, in such manner and  from such time as the Parliament of Candai provided, subject" to certain rules. The chief  of these rules was that the  Province of Quebec should  have a fixed number of Members (65) and that the repr  resentation of other provinces  in the House of Commons.  should bear the same proportion to the population  of the province as the number  65 bears to the population of  the Province  of Quebec.  In 1946, Seqtion 51 of the  British North:; America Act  was repleaied and a new Section substituted, as fdllows:-  ���"The number of Members  of the House of Commons shall  be 255 and the representation  of the; Provinces therein shall  forthwith, upon the; coming*  into force of this Section, and  thereafter on the conpletioii  of each decennial census, be  " Teadjusted^.''... according to  the following rules - (a) subject as hereinafter provided^  there shall be assigned to each  of the provinces the number  of Members computed by dividing the total population of  each province by the. quotient  so obtained.. .. ."

That was in my younger days.  Now I,hope...they:do.  While strolling-with a friend  in Stanley Park, we happened  across one of those surprising  plots of' roses which one so  often 'discovers'' in that, wonderland by  the  Pacific.  Struck by the exquisite  beauty of the various blooms,  we stoppedl and just gazed,  half in wonder--and-half~ih awe  at the waving mass.  Rather    involuntarily     and  quite    aloud,     I    exclaimed,  "isen't     thaft'   a   ,wonderful  thing"?  An old gentleman who had  been standing lost in thought  a bare pace from us, and  before my friend could answer,  turned and said. "Son 'tain,t  surprising,'-God, himself made  'em.  j?

Thursday February 15 1951  (Continued from page  7)  BETWEEN YOU'N ME  Mrs Ed Pratt was telling me  about the loggers they have  up in that country. She was  cognizant of the difference  that has com/e over they who  make their living from the  woods now and the same type  of man, 20 years ago.  I found out they now play  badminton, no less.  There's nothing wrong with  playing badminton. It only  sounds incongrous to hear of  loggers doing it.  Tell Cecil Chamberlain I'm  only joking, about the logger.  l'met Earl Dawe, "watch the  spelling of the last name  please," and he tells me he is  starting the legal firm of Earl  Dawe,. barrister  and  soliciter.  He will work from Wilson  Creek and can turn his hand  at being machinist as well as  throwing Blackthorne around.  Tall and slim, Earl is not ou+  to maike his fortune immediately. "I'll be siatfsfied  to grow with the country,''"  he said seriously. "I think  there -'is an opportunity here,  and if there is too little in  practising law, I'll take what  comes along until there ' is  enough in  the  law  practise."  That is the right spirit and  one to be lauded. I hope he  makes his fortune someday  from his faith in this great  country. We need men like  that.

"The influence and mechanics of newspapers,' was  the subject of a ta|lk given to senior students of the High  School by Bill Sutherland, representing The Coast News.  ���������=��������� :���  The talk was  given in lieu  of a normal English. Period,  and covered newspapers from  their origin in the heiroglyph-  ies to'present day, many col-,  oured full page spreads.  Mr -; Suthferlad contended  that "chain" newspapers were  unhealthy.  He pointed out that one  (track influence could be tpo  easily brought to bear on large  sectionsi t of ��� ^phe, populace.  '.'Newspapers' owned by individual, publishers and operated  according to each his own best  principals was the best means  of disseminaftig news without  taint or party allegiance" he  said.  The   spbaker   outlined   the  part played by newspapers in  construction   of  present   day .  texit'   books.   He   outlined   the  method   whereby   text   books  were   born  from  information  and news accumulated through  the   years    and    disected'   by  "basically honest'men, charged  with   compiling   an  unbiased'  digest  of  the  whole  story".  "As this was done some ten  years    following    the    actual  events, chance: of personal likes  and views were less likely to  have  influence   on   the   textbook^ structure and story.  "Newspaper  business  is  a  rough game", the speaker said.  Onfty  tjwo  women, publishers  are actually operating papers  in B.C.,''There are 52���_ weekly'  newspapers in this province."  he said. "There being only two  ladies actually engaged in the  business is a clue to the type,  of work".

You've probably been giving  some thought recently to the  spring  clean-mp,   and ,to   the  improvements you would  like  to  make  in. your  home.  And  then perhaps you've come up  against the problem of short- -  age of ready money. If-that's  the   difficulty,   you  ought  to  drop into the Bank of ���Montreal '  at Gibsons or Sechelt and have  a word with Tom LarsOri, the  manager.   He    invites    householders   with   home  improvement'  plans   to    discuss    the  financing  of  them - through   a^  B of M personal" loan Such ai  loan costs only" six'per'cent a  year in  interest.

The speaker drew a parallel  between ai. well known communist paper and one of the  Vancouver papers, suggesting  that, ^despite not reading the  editorials a person could easily  be influenced by the stories  and their slanting".  "In other words", he said.  "If it person Were to read  nothing but ai communist ot*  far left paper, he would, despite, his ignoring the editorials,  have a leaning toward tlie far  left. . ;;  "The same would apply to  reading conservative 'papers;  As long as papers are written  by human beings with the  frailties of humans, then influences will creep into the  best written story'.'.
