The Coast, News     Thursday  March  8   1951  TODAY'S mHITE ELEF&PlMm  OUR VILLAGE Commission reminds us somer  what of a story told by Bernard Shaw, in  which he went to great lengths to pluck up  his courage when ��� faced 'with the need for  action. ���  "J square my shoulders", the great playwright used to tell, "stick out.my chin, plant,  my feet firmly on the ground, clench my fists  and then, lunging ahead.... do the wrong-  thing'". ��  Our   Commissioners   have-   a    bundle-  of  money,  ($8,000 surplus from last year), they  know there is work to be done, so they ..brace  themselves resolutely  in front  of the  crying  needs such .as a waterworks, garbage disposal,  sewers and important items, then like the estimable Mr Shaw*.... they buy a dump truck.  Comissioner Robert  Macnicol  voiced  the  thought  which,   if  followed,  will   lead  them  into doing many wrong things. Said he. "It's  nothing to be proud of to come out of the year  with a surplus, when there are so many things  which should be done. We shouldn't have a  surplus."  Commission' Chairman Mrs E.. Nestman  could see the handwriting, on. the., wall! Hers  was the lone dissenting vote when it came to  the truck buying.  Last year; the Village spent $320' for  trucking, $250 of that" sum was for gravelling.  It is conceivable that we will have probably three or four times that amount of work  to do this year. But why buy a truck which  is only capable of doing one-third of the work*  desired. You .can hardly > haul pipe "with a  dump body and we have no crew or men to  do our public works.  We have a.working agreement with the  provincial government if we need trucks for  hauling or we can always hire one for less  than this idea is going to.'cost., ���  We have to build a garage, that will cost  several  hundred dollars.  We have to hire  a  man to   drive.it,   that \will : cost   us   several  thousand dollars every year.'- We have to operate the truck toits,.fullest extent and that will  cost more  than  25. cents per mile.  There  is  nothing sillier than a dump truck sitting by  itself alongside a bed of gravel,.so we have  to hire men to load the truckV That will cost  several thousand dollars per year. .-.'".  .< Of  course, we  could  buy  a  brand1* new  truck, and leave it sitting in, the new garage/'  Prices will probably rise in a few months and  we could conceivably realize a dollar or two  on the deal.  But Ave doubt if the Village Commission  would tolerate that; thought.  r ';/       ''"/  There is one way in which./, this truck  business would lookifgoqd and thafis if a  local improvement /Jtax .:��� was levied- for /the  '" hauling of garbage-kiid the/truck was rebuilt  and used forthat /purpose.

Lets be realistic about this  thing. ��� .-/pp./-.   ...   '....  We probably heed a vehicle of some sort  to avoid the petty expenses of hauling, a-piece  of pipe or plank from here to there. But we  need a three ton, $4,000 truck for this, like  we need a hole in the/head.  Our roads this year will have to have  some work done on them, Our wisest course  would foe to make a ..deal with some; local  trucker at sov much per yard. 'Through ffi  years, this village has always managed to.get  its hauling done when it was needed. :V  There will hardly be any fear of not geU  ting a vehicle when we so desire.  We submit-that when this council gets  out of office there will be no surplus, there  are one or two commission members who think  surplusses are something to. .be avoided. But,  if and when there is a little1 re juggling of the  S.S. and MA. tax and we find ourselves relying on our own little income we will be very  pleased to have a hefty surplus.  The water situation is not going to be  answered by putting .up a bylaw for about  $10,000. There will hd other expenses before  this village has good sewers, good sanitary  rules and regulations^, ^4 u:-p&'r.'"���,;. v : \  '-���������'; If the Commission; has decided to ignore  the water situation entirely, then let it take  warning on this garbage /position;  Someone will; look up the law.;. someday  and this village will spend much money in  trying to keep itself sanitary.

Reader's Right  EDITOR THE NEWS.        ~  SIR The teachers of British  Columbia  feel they  are toeing  betrayed by the gov.rnment of  the province by legislation  to be introduced- regarding  teacher's pensions. As we.. intend to carry,our fight against  this legislation to, the" ��loor of  the house, we wish to aquaint  the  public with the facts and  appeal for the widest possible  support. Our difficulties date  back to 1940, when the Teacher 's Pen'si on Fund, inadequately financed, was nearly bankrupt. The Teacher's Pensions  Act established then saved the  B.C. TEACHERS'PENSIONS  ARE THE LOWEST IN CANADA  fund from extinction, but involved considerable sacrifices,  yhe pensions being paid, whieji  were already pitifully small,  were- substantially reduced  while' contributions of \ the  active teachers^ were substantially increased. <���[��� \  During, ten years from 1940  to 1950, while cost of living  rose some 70/"pereeni,pensions  xremained statics Nothing, was  done even to restore the reductions imposed in 1940.  Teacher's pensions in British  Columbia are now lower than  rtihose paid in any other  Canadian province/ averaging"  some $70 per month, In many  cases they are lower even than  the old age pension; nor do  they include the free medical  and hospittl care' which goes  with the old age pension. Yet  the old age pensioner has made  no cash contribution, , while  the teacher's pension is a contributory one.  The B.C. Teacher's Federation has made several attempts  to remedy the situation. On  two occasions, briefs on benalf  of the retired teachers were  presented to the. provincial  government. These accomplished nothing. Two years ago,  alarmed by the' desperate  plight of some of the retired  teachers, the Federation raised,  through voluntary subscription from its members, a fund  of $17,000 which was used for  emergency relief of the neediest cases.  In 1950,, a survey by a pro  fessional actuary revealed. the  pension    fund    now    has    a  (Continued  on page 7)  Wm.

Shore,  /Teacher's pensions in B,C. are lower  than in any other province. Many are  lower than $40.00. a month.  Since the-teacher's Pension Act was  established in 1940, there has been a 70  percent rise in the cost of living with no  iaidjustment in pension. Becait^e of an  improvement in the financial position of  the pension fund, the government could  now increase service pensions by 30 percent. Instead, it has recommended an increase of only 15 percent and a 14 percent reduction of its employed: contribution;  Teachers have,been paying 5 percent,  of their salaries into the fund and are  requesting that this be raised to 6 percent in an effort to establish more adequate pensions.  The employer's current contribution  is*7 percent. This amount is less than the  - government's contribution to the Civil  Service Fund, which contribution approximates 10 percent. Nor is it out. of  line with the employee's scheme, which  ranges from 7 percent to 10 percent.  B.C. teachers ask that there be no reduction in the employer's contribution  until pensions are adequate.  <3��VE    US   YOUR    SUPPORT  WRITE TO B.C. TEACHERS' FEDERATION  1300 Kp^SONST.

We enjoyed a.  recent lecture by Stan Truman,  principal of Gibsons high  School,    when    he    spoke    on  Russian History to the local  P.T.A. unit. We were very  surprised to see the poor turnout. It should 'be the duty of  us all to get out and back our  local PTA groups. They do a  good job and fill a much needed   hole   where   the    School  Board stops buying and "the  children have to do without  certain   articles  and  items  of  importance.  Mrs  Jack  Nelson   had   to  undergo a major operation m  Vancouver. We certainly hope  she gets better soon as we all  miss her  here.

In all this wotrk, trained social  workers strive to correct the underlying causes of the condition, and  thereby help to solve each individual problem. In this way, rehabilitation  is hastened. The social workers ce-operate closely with doctors, teachers,  courts, police and many others to treat the effects of detrimental social  conditions.  Besides these services, the Welfare Branch also provides Social Allowances,  Mother's Allowances, nearly half of old age pension benefits, child protection from neglect, satisfactory adoption practices, aiid medical, optical,  hospital and drug services for those receiving, social assistance.  All these services are available to every citizen in B.C. who requires them.  A call to your local welfare office will bring a courteous and understanding  social worker to help you.

And  so we bid farewell to the beau-  ;tiful island of Ponga Dang  Dang. And, as it slips Into the(  deep blue of the calm Pacific  we whisper to ourselves that  someday we shall return and  live and love with the gentle/  maidens and the luscious fruits  of this  tropical isle".  There is a crash of symbal  and deep drums and the barking lion of the main picture  kills the trend.  '      It is with? something akin to  the   feeing  of  Ponga  Dang  i>aiig that j think of the area  known as Pendeh Harbbur.  ^r^When the ,sun, shines in  Pender Harbour, and the  waters lap gently at your feet,  there is a strange tightening  in your chest. Here, then, is  blu,e reality, with the mysterious islands and /coves out-,  lined in the backdrop of blue,  witA^ ttye scuilryip.g, playing  ducks which glance on the  water, leaving a wake of white  and the strange mystic call of  some unseen bird, comes the  moving picture feeling.  You recall as you stand in  awe, that you have felt  just,  such  emotions  when  you  sat  .and  watched  the   glamour  of  Ponga.-You knew  then;1 that'  you  would  never  be    lucky  enough to visit that jewel of  the Paeific and' you also were  aware, Jn your own mind, that,  once you had made the incredible   trip,   that   Ponga   Dang  Dang would become just another  hot  sweaty,  Americanized  island   with   natives  you .,.  could   probably   buy   for   a  dollar.  You knew - your feelings  could only come from the romance within' your own soul,  from the yearning you have  withipV yourself. *  Five or six miles past Halfmoon Bay, heading north west,  one comes into that land of  unreality. It is stunning, the  effect some of the views and  vistas have upon an ordinary  person.  Standing on the roadside,  looking over to Texada or  Vancouver / Island,- one can  truly be part of that great  beauty. It is easy"1 to blend in  spirit with the granduer and  mood of the ocean. Waves  lapping against some unnamed  islet give the effect of adding  an artists final touch to the  beautiful picture. Yet the ever  changing effect is something  that no artist can create or  even remotely resemble.
