Ritchey when his truck and cat  loaded trailer crashed through a bridge  on the Sechelt���  Gibsons upper road may well mark a way for the future.  Bridges such as we have on the Sechelt Gibsons highway  are quite probably too flimsy for the loads that daily travel  along them.  When E.G. Carson and his department of public works start  to spend that promised million dollars within the next two years,  we would suggest a complete survey be made of the Sechelt  Highway with a view to removing many bridges on that stretch  of road. ��� v  First move will probably be enforcement of load regulations  but this will hardly right the error of having so many bridges  on "corners. The centrifugal force of a loaded truck starting  across one-of our bridges at ten or fifteen miles per hour must  be tremendous , owing to the curve that, is quite often in the  bridge itself. .  AI Ritchey was driving at "around ten miles per hour",  when he started across that particular bridge, his load was many  tons less than is ordinarily, estimated for such spans and yet the  bridge just disintegrated.  Rotten timbers is part of the answer. Some of the main members on.the bridge are rotten for all to see. According to neighbours, "several braces have been out of the bridge for some  time ".-'-,������  A bridge inspector tested these bridges only two or three  years ago yet the spans collapse only a short time after.  It is hardly good enough that Ave cannot completely trust-  the bridges we cross every day.  But now that this particular bridge is down, we suggest to  the district engineer that he seriously consider NOT rebuilding  it at the present site.'  The new bridge should be built 50 yards up the creek from  its present resting place.. There is no engineering problem involved and the parties affected by the road moving have signified their willingness to, let the government have sufficient land  upon which to build the new briage and the* new hundred" yards  of highway. This would eliminate one source of danger and make  the unfortunate accident of Mr Ritchey pay dividends foiv the,  rest of tlie public.  SECHELT  By ARIES.  ' WE stand corrected. In last  week's column we mentioned  the fact that the (Governor  Genera.K at .Victoria) which  should have been Leofutenant  'Governor, thanks 'to Francis  Drage for thjs reminder. Almost as bad as when I called  Francis* Drage, Frank. He was  most surprised and. so were .we".  but as Francis Drage, knows  that .we know better., we do  not mind. Now for a little correction of our own. Re Mr  McKissock 's, iefctter in" which .  he says he contacted me over  the' unfortunate article re the  Postmaster's appointment, such  is not the case as we phoned  him and he assured us that he  had just, read the article. We  phoned at once so as not to be  held responsible for the. write  up .which was not by us. No  more than Mrs Nestman is responsible for the news which  appeared under her -heading  last week. You know, it must  be quite a headache to run a  weekly newspaper' in a small  ^community such;- asyours�� ;pn  a larger paper there would be  the reporters at their wobbly  desks and dented typewritrs  and i lie "table for mj'en who  count the headlines. The city  editor, the country editor, the  long n.osed> misiera/ble individual who does the obituaries  the heretic who does the  church, notices. Then there is  a spot for the publisher, and#  -sometimes the social editor has..  a spot of her own too. Here,  however the work is carried  along by just a: few. Headline  is marked on one sheet of copy :  paper while black marks  drawn through some of the  rurals epic's. Don't know why  this is. We have never been in  ���the Coast News when presses  are rolling but do know that  the general public expect a lot  from small beginnings and if  a mistakevis made it is world  shattering. Then there are the  printers Avho sometimes cannot read penmanship although  perfectly clear, to" the 'writer.  So, lets .not expect too much  from our small paper it does  its best which reminds us that  we had a letter sent to (Readers  Rights last week which hasn't  ;been printed yet. H6pe it does  f ind   its -way  into   the-. paper- <  soon^or the point will be lost.  .Thefwedding of. Yvette Roy,  daughter of Mr aiid Mrs Lucian  Roy of Norenda, Quebec and  Robert? (R.E>.)

General feel-  .ing  of  the  meeting  was  that  this is not the time to take on  this  added  responsibility.  Evidently there  is  not  much  to  be  gained.   Our  population  is  .much  less  than  Gibson's  and  more scattered^ so comparisons  were  of  not much use  to  us  here. Such a large amount of  land  belonging   to   the  Union  Steamship  Co. , and,;. als'o   the  Indian .Village, would, to our-  way  of  thinking, have  to  be  takHi into   earnest consideration. ,We have  no  industries  here v and most people  are  on  small incomes.

The "company will be  expected to provide the necessary dolphins and span to connect with the wharf, but "the  ���department of pub/lie* works  will" continue to maintain this  dock as in the past.

"Pop" Gardner has finally  struck oil at Ocean Palls. He  has obtained one of those very  hard to get little houses. Mrs  Gardner leaves us Monday to  join him there.

VON Nurse reports, March,  she had 17 new cases and made  86 visits, 33 chronic, 13 medical, and surgical. 35 pre-natal,  obstretrical and new-born  instructions, 2 pneumonia, 3'  health supervision. There were  6 full pay visits and 19 part'  pay, total $21.00. Due to heayy  snow in March less visits, on  account of" a four day holdup.  This report certainly shows  our nurse on the job, and every  thing under control.
