"Minister of Transport has authorized entry of second ferry,  M.V. Bainbridge. This completes ..federal assistance,'' the -wire  stated.    ���   ;  Black Ball Ferries i,n its  provincial application for the  exclusive franchise, had promised^.to start a second ferry  service across Aganiemnon  Channel, "Within one'year of  commencement of the Gibsons  Horseshoe Bay link."  It. is believed the Bainbridge  will be used im either of .the .  two legs which will bring  Powell River with its estimated  3300 automobiles into elo^ier '  relations' with the city of  Vancouver.  'Eastern* end of the Gibsons  link willbe built at the end of  Keith Road, at Horseshoe Bay.  according to information released from the provincial  Department of. Public Works.

GIBSONS. ��� The Board of  Trade has taken in hand the  current provincial ban against  release of "materials with which  to construct hotels.  At a special' meeting, tihe  Board went on record by means  of a. resolution- to the Attorney  General urging every assistance be given in considering,  application by .private ' firms  in construction of a. hotel here.  First move is circulation of  a petition in�� this area. Upon  the petition findings will rest  the government's approval or  othenvise of holding a plebes-  cite. Upon"the plebeseite findings will re it the next move,  which is application from- one  or more of "several" groups  nyw interested in building a  hotel here.  The   last   time   a   plebeseite'  ��� was .held here it was narrowly  defeated,   this  had   the   effect  of��� stopping all'hotel construe-"  tion moves then ��nder way.  It is believed there are only  two  sites in the  Gibsons area  being considered by the prospective hotel builders.      :-  ���   The  Board, of   Trade,   at   a  previous meeting, had. gone on  record _.as..t apprbving .' he   construction    of, .a   hotel   in   the  locality.

PLANS HAVE been started which! should end in.the largest and  "inn fildest" day of celebration in "the history of the Sechelt  Peninsula. ,   . .    ��� ��� ���    .  Gibsons Board of Trode, in setting up a committee to handle  the gigantic celebration slated to cover the complete area served  by the Black Ball Ferries has taken the initiative but we doubt  it' it will long hold the lead.  Thi> Peninsula can find more reasons for arguing within  itself ihan any like territory, but we know, when it conies to  working together, it is hard to beat. .  The committee in qhlarge of raising funds and providing  entertainment has already done a major job,,which will ou,t when  the big day arrives.  We think school children should be granted a holiday on,  what will be one of the greatest days in the area's history.  M-mey is already iirthe committee's coffers to help pay for  the kid's big day.  ('loan up, pain flip campaigns will soon get under way. An  attempt will, be marie to have the Gibsons- wharf and sheds  shining-with a new, bright coat of .paint.  Gibsons will be decorated such as it ih-as never been before.  Visitors from the northern parts of the Peninsula will be assured  -of food under plans now in the offing,   i  B.M. Maclntyre, MLA has already assured he will be here  to help celebrate. It is hoped to have James Sinclair, M.P, here.  Both these men have been hard workers towards getting our feriy.  Black Ball officials have assured they will be here to help:  We suggest all three Boards of Trade should invite members  from Powell River to attend the opening. The advent of a car .  ferry here is of grave import to our neighbours from the north  and they will undoubtedly want to help celebrate.  Permission will be requested from tht Village Commission  to have coster's barrows on the streets. It would be a poor celebration if. the kids could not have their balloons and hooters.  A special edition of this paper will come out to commemorate  the great day which can well be the first step in a, completely  new way of life to us. Z  s The Board of Trade will attempt to get cooperation from  other Boards in order to have the day the ferry arrives, a Peninsula holiday.  Sports and athletic displays are the order of the day. A move  is now afoot* to have a band in attendance. Bonfires, the law  allowing, will be on tap in the evening while dances-will undoubtedly add to the festivity. ,  It is up to each and every one of ��us to help make Ferry.Day,  a day to remember. " J  We predict it will be a celebration which will go down in  memory. *  There will bea lot of .hard work in this but it will be well  worth every bit of effort put into it.  , s  Reader's Right  PENINSULA BRIDGES  EDITOR THE NEWS.  In the (hope that my mis-  fort une in wrecking my ecjuip-  .gipent' in the c,bllapse of the  bridge on the Sechelt Highway, may help to save loss of  Ififd #nd property in. ffuture  I herewith submit some pertinent facts.  This bridge, like many others  between Gibsons and Sechelt'  is placed in the highway in  such fashion the road* .curves  to appr#ach it from either side,  and also goes down grade to  do this. The logical and economical "thing - barring unsur-  mountable obstacles, which do  not ekist in this instance ���  would- be .-to run the road  straight and level as possible.',  place a culvert aiid fill and  eliminate this1 hazard, as well  as saving gas and time of the  travelling public. Total cost is  much less than a new bridge  and is permanent. The best  bridges rot in a comparatively  short time and these were never  built in the first place to carry  todays traffic.  Secondly it was not overload that caused this accident,  nor speed. The rot in the wood  is apparant for anyone to see  who cares to look, also there  is side thrust, centrifugal force  generated by a vehicle making  va turn qii a. ..jroadwfe-y. This  roadway being- a bridge sitting  between, two tanks without  any ties of any sort to the  earth, simply- shoved oyer and  collapsed like a house of cards.  It might have been a. bus with  adults and children aboard, or  a logging .truck, or a moving  van or any moderately leaded  vehicle. Even a fast moving  car, - if brakes were suddenly  applied, -.eoitld. have hac] the  ������ siame- effect.  So it behooves, all who travel  on this road to keep these facts  in   mind,   and   back   up   the  efforts of all in authority--,  from our local road crews and  foremarirto bur worthy M.L.A.  Mr Maelntyre. Get these  brjxtges replaced as soon a!s  huinanly possible with isafe,  permanent ��� ���-. culverts and fills  and on a straight course whenever possible:  It is not only possible but  also easier and would shorten  the road distance and decrease  the grades. As our geometry  lesson stated in t!h��6rem/' '": A:;  straight tyrie( is' the shortest  distance between two points  2.E.D."  Yours for   progress  HERE  now.    :  A.E.Ritchey.
