The above statement from E.S. Jones, deputy minister of  public works, should clear the way for construction of the Keith  Road car ferry terminus. Word had been broadcast that West  Vancouver and Horseshoe Bay residents and municipal authori-  ties had been able to stop construction of the wharf.  A conflicting series of letters  from the Government in Victoria only helped to muddy the  the situation.  Black Ball had cancelled  operations due to start Wednesday.  Suggestions that the work  could be held up for "at least  a year while negotiations went  on", caused a flutter of fear  throughout the Sechelt Peninsula.  This paper phoned the  deputy minister of public  works who assured, "as far  as this department is concerned, they (Black Ball) can  go ahead. I'm not sure if they  are getting full cooperation  from West?

Queried by the Coast News  that foreshore rights had not  said, "that has nothing to do  with pur depal'tmrnfc."

The latest announcement from Victoria,  directed at New Westminster <and towns in  the interior warning-".toJ!.fay._off" in planning  further school expansion may vmiie.finis to  our hopes and plans for a hotel.  It is hardly conceivable that Victoria  (the Attorney General) will approve of a  hotel here when' he js curtailing school construction to two roomed units andothen only  under the direst circumstances.  Undoubtedly, we sorely need a hotel here.  AW must have a. hotel iii order to come even  remotely near catering to the public" we expect to have arrive via car ferry.  But.... and it is a tremendous but, hotels,  even important ones like ours stand little  chance against schools. In all fairness they  should not be in the same category. Rooms  .'���nd beer have their place in our life but they  are far down flhe list in comparison to schools  whicfli are of the essentials. \        ' ',  Our school bylaw battle has, like all  battles, died down and is now a thing of the  past but it could quite easily have been another story.  The fates SmilecL on thisr area when all  the factions got together with the exception  of aboujt two or three plain knotheads: and  deeided to pull together for the improvement  of schools.  We would be in a sorry plight if now  we had to win the bylaw then go on hands  and knees to Victoria in order to get lumber  and equipment released.  Latest edict from Victoria quite probably  will have its effect on our hotel but that is  only minor to the narrow escape we did have.  <���, ......  It is conceivable that Victoria would lean  backward, on , the hotel question for us and  grant release of material, but...... * .   ���  Our Place lames Are Historical  Following is a story from  the pen of Ronald, "Kip"  Hew'at, avid history reader,  riverboat man, logger and  safety first inspector who lives  with his wife Polly and five  children at Granthams.  Kip is the type of man who  can write stories such as the  following without reference to  too many books. Endowed with  a remarkable memory, he can  recite poetry from the Iliad  to the works of Service and  Dnumm-ond w.ith the utmost  ease. History has always been  intriguing for him and it is  from his great fund of knowledge gained from reading and  from his job as coastal inspect-'  tor for the Workmans' Compensation Board that he has  written this treatise on place  names which can be of value  to us all. ,  One   time   Mississippi  river-  boait. man,  Kip   also   "drove"  on the white water of  r<nd    Quebec     and  throughout   all    the  states. '  He was in charge of the  Japanese logging camp/part  of the Sorg Pulp. holding during the war.  Born in Didsbury,  Alberta, x  Mr   Hewat   can   recall   many  stories from,  the  mining days  of his  second home  at Kaslo  in  the   Kootenai   country.  He  has also ihad  experience as a  miner in that area.  Following is the first of three .  instalments.  THE LITTLE ADMIRAL  BY R. "KIP" HE WART  A great many of the place -  names of the B.C. Coast were  derived from the ships and  the men of the; Royal Navy.  This was due; m. part, to the  fact that the Navy performed  almost all of tlhe' original sur-  weys and, naturally, survey  'ship^^l^^n-yey    personnel.  Ontario  logged  western  and almost all the other prominent points were given names  associated, in some way with  his career.  Perhaps  the   two  moist  important     battles     in    British  Naval History were the Battle  of  Cape St.  Vincent  and  the  Battle of Aboukir Bay, sometimes called the Battle of the  Nile. Their importance lay not  s,o   much   on   account   of   the  number of ships involved, nor  in the number  of prizes captured,'nor   in'the  fact ,;that,  in both cases, the British were,  seemingly,  hopelessly outnumbered in men, ships and guns,  but was, primarily due to the  time  in which  they  occurred.  The Battle of Cape St. Vincent was fought on St. Valentine's Day - February 14 1797,  when:���' the   British   fleet,������ consisting of fifteen sail - of - the-  line  met, and   thoroughly   defeated   the   Spanish   fleet   of  twenty  - seven  sail,   most  of  them larger and, all told, carrying    nearly    one    thousand  guns    and     several     hundred,  more   fighting  men  than   the  British.  This, victory was particularly important, coming, as it  did when the national outlook  for Britain was anything but  bright. At home, there was  nothing but despondency and  gloom, Consols had 'dropped  to fifty one, Cash Payments  were about to be stopped at the  bank. A French invasion-fleet  was expected to set sail at  any time. All in all, the. outlook appeared blefek for the  ''tight little isle" and Britain  had, in fact, been on the-point  of seeking a negotiated peace.  '.The Battle  of the Nile was ..  fought oh August 1, 1798 when   ;  th'e British fleet, consisting of  fourteen ships  -  of - the  ���  line ��� all of 74 guns ��� and  a   small  Brig,-  the   '' Mutin,e''  ���'������/,������' . ...:��� ���������: /. )  French possessed 1,196 guns  and mustered 11,230 men. The  British had 1,012 guns iand  8,068 men. In spite of these  odds, only two badly mauled  French ships escaped. This  victory broke the back of  Napoleon ?s campaign in Egypt  and probably saved India.  Turning  to   a  chart   of  the  Pender Harbour area, we  immediately  notice  Jervis  Inlet,  named, in this case by Captain  Vancouver  himself  after Admiral    Sir    John   Jervis    (or  Jarvis).  If King  Alfred' may  be known as the Father of the  British   Navy,   Sir  John   was  certainly  it's  uncle.  He,  per-  Ihaps   more,  .than   any, single  person    was    responsible    for  converting a poverty stricken  collection,   of     poorly    found  ships, a prey to a political system rotten with graft and corruption, into a proud fleet of  well - manned, well - supplied,  well - handled' fighting ships  second  to  none  in the  world  at that time. He even carried  the fight onto the floor of the  House  and forced  long oyer-  due    investigations.    Born   in  1735,  joining the Navy as an  Able Seaman in 1749 he rose  from   the   forecastle   to    supreme  command  of  the   fleet  and knighthood,' dying in 1823.  Almost all of ,the most brilliant "  young admirals, Nelson among  them, were  a ' product,of  Sir  John's training.

It would    be  ,'stupid to, think that Russia  would commit herself .first in  Europe. .     : .  , -   If  war comes  with  Russia,  /future events will .prove that  General MacArthur's    concept  of Asia and the Red Master-  .plan, wil be borne  out.  This  'is my tribute; to him: A very  great ,man> dismissed! ina disgraceful manner, just when his  ������. knowledge is needed most, to  : carry out the defence of pur  bases .off Asia, which in turn  would lead to .V sure defence  of Alaska; and "America, for  the hortjherri Pacific ^ the  most critical area to be defend-  ; ed in the United Nations perimeter today.    ���-'.���''  Pender Harbour     jgm  BY SARAL.

But that's not all���in his short lifetime ><  he's lived enough years to see the growth of a new' major industry.  Less than five years ago: Canada's oil producing industry "was ;far  ��� from robust. Our oil fields were dwindling and produced only one  '   barrel in every 10 we used. ,^  ��� Today only eight countries in the world are known to have larger  oil reserves than Canada. And production this year is expected to  meet about one-third of our needs.   :  Every ��� barrel of this "home grown" crude lessens our dependence  on other countries and brings us a step closer to self-sufficiency in  oil.; With oil increasingly important to our daily life in pcaceor  war, any improvement in security of supply means new security  for Jimmie and for all of us.      ,  Canada's newest major industry gives promise of becoming one of  her greatest.

Official notice of dates and  boundaries will be made later.  A - committee meetmg to  study application of Eric Inglis  to build another storey on his  present' warehouse had to be  postponed for a month because  a council, member has to be absent on 'private business.  STOP FOR SMOKE  If this carries on it will be  logical, to, .expect recess while  Bob Burns pr James Hall light  their pipes.  Why cancel a meeting because one of the commissioners  will be unable to attend? Does ^  the village/ have to come to  a standstill' because one man  will not be there. ?,.  Contractor A.E. Ritchey and  Donald Cochrane took a few  minutes off to prove the council was wrong in its contention  &h��jt Ritchey'& h;eav?y. equipment had helped to break down  the present road. They also  pointed  out that  the part o��  I the road, which , was in the  most disgraceful condition was  not, according to the maps, the  Gower Point road over which  so much coh,tention has arisen  w<5th the provincial government.  BURNS  EXPLAINS  Half ,the council meeting was  spent with the Village Clerk  explaining the water situation,  interuptidns f rom the audience,  charges of '' lazyness and  apathy #nd why do you not  live on Gower Point, then you  would do something constructive".  -; m' ,- ���   .  Commission Chairman Mrs  Nestman practically ordered  one of her councillors to "get  something done on this right  away. It's.your job."  . -One man jumps up from the  back and shouts something  about tourists having their  feelings hurt with a warehouse.  And this village piles its garbage in its back yard and no  one says a thing. What stupidity.  , .'-���.,'   ^~  Commissioner W. Skellett'  came in for his share of need  ling when it was pointed out  that a salmon runway crossed  a part of his road and had  done so for years and he  had'nt ordered culvert for it,  and when he had, the company  had sent the wrong kind, but  poor William had then forgotten to order hew pipe.  I know, and so does everyone, that these commissioners  get no pay for their jobs. But  that means absolutely nothing.  HONOUR COUNTS  They have a. far more exacting taskmaster than a mere  cash register. Tfeey have an  obligation to the rest of their  immediate society. As long,as  they sit in the seat of local  government, they are as open  to criticism and lb;; praise as  if they were being payed thou- y,  sands of dollars per yearly ;yP'i..  When commissioners or other  persons in trusfe^et the i&ea %  that they do not have to do  'this or that' or take this or  that because they are unpaid,  then we suggest they are not  qualified to hold the trust of  society.  While on this question, it is  a purely, personal opinion that  at least two of the commissioners resign - w_e know they, ���,  wont - but for. all the good  they^ are doing on that commission Zthey wopld-be better  ���off,, and. the community infinitely so, if they would.

W  USE THE COAST NEWS  ���. CLASSIFIED  JUST A FARCE '  To sit and make a lazy farce  of the whole situation, especially when the very health  of other people depends upon  them, is a crime- of the very  worst type.  When a man becomes a commissioner, he takes upon" him-'  ���self -the duty and responsibility of a 'leader.  1 I suggest that it is the duty  of everyone to listen in at a.  meeting of our village council.
