This time, the Halfmoon Bay Liberal Association, which boasts just about 100 per cent membership under  able M. "Bill" Kolterman, will take the story to the Hon. The  Minister of Public'Works and explain just what the cutoff will  mean to the area. ,  It has long been rumoured - doublessly with a degree of  truth - that the Welcome Beach cutoff was shelved in Victoria  for several, reasons but''mainly because of approach made in some  of the original applications  Individuals, have been prone to light the torch and dash  madly over to our capital and demand the short cut be impli-  mented because... .and here followed some sound and some  very unsound seasons.  The Minister approached by the P.C. Power Commission  refused to "pull their chestnuts out of the fire."  Several individual delegates have interviewed Mr Carson,  one, in the words of L.S. Jackson, "addressed the minister while  under the influence and called some of the minister's relatives  everything but gentlemen."  It takes little brains to understand why there has been animosity towards the cutoff. Mr Carson, being the type he is, will  not be bullied into promoting for some group or person. And  very rightly so.  There is a rumour around the capital that the department  of public works realizes the cutoff is the normal and, proper  route. There is rumour if the approach is made in a business like  fashion, pointing but the advantages to travellers and to the communities which dot the road to Pender Harbour, the minister  will undoubtedly give favourable consideration to the,proposal.  The Halfmoon Bay Liberals will approach" Mr Carson-with  costs and outline of the work to be done. The delegation has been  assured of B.M. Maclntyre's.assistance in the.matter.  And so it seems, with proper, gentlemanly approach ���'��� and  with the firm intention of getting to the bottom of the trouble,  the delegation has^every-: reason to-believe that successs can  crown its efforts in this, very worthy attempt. ...;.,.      .  Readers Right  EDITOR THE NEWS.  SIR. Several people have  asked me why I have not commented on the roads * lately.  I hope you will allow iA�� to  answer them all through your  paper.  I believe firmly, that I have  been laboring under a mis -  apprehension. I have been  guilty of ignorance. Being only  human, I have hated to admit  it. -������.-���..������������;.  It all started when I read your  "Scoop" and 1 do not use the  word lightly - in which you  revealed, for the first . time,.;  straight from the Post-master,  why box holders cannot get  to their boxes during "off"  hours. Our genial Post-master  explained it so beautifully  too! "An architectural deficiency" - Gee!.  Anyway I was. thumbing  through the dictionary looking  up "Architectural" and "deficiency" - when I chanced  to come on the word "Road".  "Road. A way from one place  to another". Hum! loosely, it  does  fit.   I   certainly  do .get  from one place to another when  t travel locally - and in severalx  different wjays,  not  only forward,     but up, i down,  backr  wards, side-ways, plus    a few  off-angle directions;, to boot!  But wait! there's still another  definition! ''Road 2. A place  where ships- may ride at  anchor". Here. I blush with  shame. Just last week I was  complafning, I . said, "(this  year we .will have paid $60  plus the tax on gasoline for  the dubious pleasure of using  these roads, and now it has  C( me to' the point where one  ���must don one's hip boots and  'reconnoitre before even attempting to get the car from  our property to the road". Fie  on me !.It was this way.  Last spring someone constructed a culvert to provide drainage for the Pratt Road, they  terminated it right at the back  of our place. It was constructed  cleverly, soon a river, formed  a river that flowed right into  little   private' road   then  our  employing our "ruts",it roared  s torrentially down and into our  pasture. Result, a private lake.  (We toyed with, but discarded,  3  SEE US FOR- -'AtiS YOUR LUMBER NEEDS  Phone 15 M2  WilsbnPreek  the idea of privately stocking  it.) Our horse complained ancl.  so? did'^ but that Was before  I understood! We have a boat  over there in open shed, and  the whole thing became clear  when that boat floated. Definition No: 2 must apply to our  local pijpduct, after all, this  is a sea - faring community.  My thoughts really became a  certainty as I looked put front  and saw and heard the, mighty  Gower Point Rpad roar ma_  jestcally by my door!   ��� ���;'������-���  A constructional deficiency ?  Not a bit. I don't, think that  hole my car fell in last week  was a pot-hole! No it was a  '' Constructional    Excavation''  one of many made in preparation for the future" when stately steamers', glide to our door.

During the past few years thousands of farmers across Canada  have made good use of Farm Improvement  Loan;. They hav-e-  increased both the value of their farms and their own incomes.  Probably there have been times when you thought about applying for such a loan yourself. But when did you lasst check up  oni'jthe idea;'? Condi;ions and your prospects may have changed  :   since then. The majority of farm Improvement L ans have been  made to help farmers buy machinery of one kind or another.  S Bui there, are many other good purposes for a loan, such as the  { improvement of farmhouses and outbuildings, or the installation  ���   of electricity, drainage and water systems. .Again, these loans  rt can cover the purchas of livestock and the planting of fruit trees.  The cost of a Farm Improvement Loan is reasonable too - 5 per  '(. cent a year - and it is repayable in instalments especially snited  tovthe seast nal nature of your income' as a' farmer: Wh^ not thihlr  '���������. the idea over again, now % Then if yon feel there is somehing in  ; the F1L plan for you, drop into the Gibsons or Sechelt branch of  C the Bank of Montreal, and have a   word with Tom Larson,'Sie'  ;, manager.
