Maclntyre To Hear  Trade Board Kick  GIBSONS. A letter protesting the increase in hospital  premiums will be sent to B. M.

Despite the information that  Mr. Maclntyre was twice chosen to be a. member of two d'f-  ferent committees raised by  Premer Johnson to investigate  the hospital question, the  Board., felt that a p"ote-r  should b'e made to the MLA 71  "orcie:* to let him know t'at  ' v.re are not in tavour of the  manner in Avhich the govern-  in e?it   handled  the  situation.''

To some Pender supporters that is bad while, to others, it  is all to the good. It depends on the individual approach.  A Avell known Irvmes Landing supporter claims that bypassing the area is a good, thing. "We have a real tourist attraction, here," he said. "Wiry should we change it just for another  road end."  Actually, there is very little  to  argue   about,   as  it  seems  definite, when and if the ferry comes* that the road will not  touch either Irvines or Garden Bay.  It is up to every person interested in tourists to do his or  her utmost to attract from the passing Hoav of cars and buses.  Pender is in a good position as it can, by particular advertising, draAV the type of tourists it most desires.  The Board of Trade is a good group to start planning attractive entisements which could be shoAvn on poster or pamphlet.  Being representative of every portion of the Pender area, it can  lead the drive with prejudice to none.  There is no gainsaying the beauty of the area. There; in  Pender Harbour one can find accomodation Avhich is far and  beyond the needs of the community in general. Two.hotels are  capable of holding many guests and the stores which are quite  adequate.  Nature, after all, supplies the real attractions, all that man  needs to do is to supply reasonable accomodation. This should  hardly be hard for men and Avomen with the foresight that has  been shown by the Pender people.  There is no heed to worry about the road bypassing the area  it could possibly be the finest thing that such is planned.  It Avould break every heart to see that great harbour become  just another road end or ferry stop. It is worthy of far better.  If the people get on their toes once- the decision has been made  by Victoria in respect to the car ferry, then will Pender Harbour  really come into its oavu.  But.... and it is a very important, but, it must be remembered that the best mousetrap in.the world will attract nothing  if it is hidden and tucked aAvay Avithout voice or sound and allowed to become mute and mellow in its seclusion.  If Pender wants tourists, it will have to get up on its hind  legs and let the world know it has the finest scenery in the North  American continent.... because it really has.  Readers Right  EDITOR THE NEWS.  Sir. When I was a youngster  On a farm I used, to watch ray  father feed the stock and most  of. the time I ;liked to see the  horses nudging news timothy  and the cattle: digging their  noses deep into a forkful of  alfalfa. . '  But, as there is in every  farm, there, was an old boar  pig who used to barge his Avay  through the little pigs and the  mothers heavy in young, and  he'would shoulder his Avay up  to the. trough and stick his big  snout into the feed and frighten all the ohers away.  I hated that boar pig with  all my youthful heart. I'm a  full grown woman now and I  still hate the memory of- that  pig.  He was taking advantage: of  his strength and his position  to- rule the roost and to show  his power over the little fellows.  My dad Avould often jump  the pole fence and smack the  boar a crack on the nose and  the boar Avould grunt and  back up and nvait until the  '(little, weaker pigs had had  something to eat.  When I talked to two men  who had been at the village  commission meeting and heard  them describe the actions of  some of our so called fathers,  I remembered, the boar pig.  I also Avanted to see somebody  act like my father did when  the boar annoyed him.  Those children were there  to learn and they were not al-  loAved to feed at the trough  of good manners because some  of our commissioners wanted  to show their power.

Your last issue" of the paper  was a very good one and redeems yourself in our eyes.  When you first started you  said that your idea was to be  of assistance to the; Peninsula.  Printing all of Mr Maclntyre's  speech was truly a service. f  I have been in the business,  long enough to know that you  must have had to fight with  your sense, of fairness to your  columnists and to the different  Ladies Aids in order to .give  Mr Maclntyre the full play  that his speech deseres.

Our     senior     citizens  herea^boults  seem   to   be   wejU  satisfied  with  things  as  they  are and in spite of island publicans and  sinners  there  does  not seem to be any vast amount  of bankruptcy as was so vehemently prophesied during  the late bylaw battle. It certainly goes to sIioav hoy shallow  and ill informed indigens can  cause honest folk a lot,of mis-/  ery and fear. However, what  we are concerned with today  is this genie of inflation that  has got out of the bottle and  has these same senior folk  worried as to their fate.  There is worry enough to  make many of them ill in actual  fact: Because we have a pre-  rtond'ep'a/nce. of these, I'etired  people in the district is our  added reason why some concerted action should be taken  to.bring their case to our local  boy in Ottawa. There is nothing  for the dumb and the $5 or  $10 they may get is only adding fuel to the flames.  , Surely the brains in Ottawa  is capable of something better  than .playing the role of Dives  and Lazarus to good folk who  have in the main done their  stint.  40 years.  ���i..:: G1BS0NS. -this Board of  Trade should disassociate it-  sejf from the petition.''

I have read the editorial  in your last issue eritizing the  Village commissioners for deciding: to buy a truek for the  use of the village.  We must remember that we  jare a>large.village now, nearly  three- times the size it was  last year, and instead of 'three  we have^ five commissioners,  and I think we are fortunate  to have five such people to run  the village's business. Why  not get behind them and give  them a boost instead of.^handing out negative criticism. I  am sure if any of us have any,  constructive criticism the com-  Imissipners will be glad to receive it.  ���If the  village  could rent a  truck   from   any   person   that  might solve the question. But-  we know the Utility Commission has given this privitidge  pto two'parties   only   in   the*  \ village.   The ^art.age  business  ��� . and the fta'xi   busih^s.   Why  ��� this'is>; in a'country- which is  supposed to stand for "private  enteif^ise"  I  dip  tj(dV know.
