"Nomination of Mr. Hodgson  came without ^official requests  f rdm: either .;governments but  owing tp pressure brought by  local organizations interested:  in civil defence," a. committee  ��� spokesman said.

His driver's license was also  suspended for three months.  Changes  were  laid  by  the  R.C;M.P.  fivestiqation  GIBSONS.  Commission Chairman Mrs. ��E. Nestman and  Commissioner Harley Anderson will lead an attack on lack of  public toilets in this area, according to a decision made at council  meeting, Tuesday.  ������'���'.. ;���-���������  W. Sutherland, sneaking on  behalf of a delegation from the  Board of Trade pointed out  that the lack of public facilities here was an onus squarely  on shoulders of tlie village.  Mrs. Nestman and Commissioner Anderson backed the  contention that k ck of amenities here was a disgrace, and,  said Mr. Anderson, ''something-  should be done about it immediately."  Mrs. Nestman echoed the  suggestion by striking a committee of herself and Mr.  Andersonn to meet with members of the Board of Trade in  an attempt to find a solution  to the problem.  Village Clerk Robert Burns  recalled previous efforts to  have public toilets installed in  Gibsons and suggested that the  $60 water bill against opera:  ting a public convenience, plus  the cost of a caretaker were  -t^o^ofvthe-;main.,:p^jection^ to,  the proposal:^ -v     ��� -----  The    Commission    was     in  ^agreement     that    something  should be done about the lack  of    facilities.    "The    problem  seems to be ju ;t how to do it,"  one commissioner said.  Board To Drive  For Public Park  SECHELT.   ���  An   attempt  will be made to save the present  Union  Est.ates   owned  public  park from  being sub  divided  and sold as building lots.  Faced with the threat of allotments, the Board of Trade  sparked by Robert Cooke will  attempt to have the park saved  for recreational purposes.  It was pointed out that  saving the park woidd propably  be quite costly as the owners  had already turned down  $15,000 for the property as it  is.  An approach will be made  the provincial and federal governments in order to find out  what pegislsition governs  aquirin g of parks for civic pur-r  pose and needs.;:   *'   r     .- v   -v  Sechelt Scene  Of Board's Meet  , SECHELT. ��� June 16 will  be a big day for this community  when the Board of Trade plays  host to the Fraser Valley and  Mainland Associated Boards of  Trade, estimated at 30 units  strong.  . Lunch will be served in the  Sechelt Inn according to a  letter received from headquarfc-  ers of the group.  Gibsons and Pender Harbour  will both have a strong representation at the meeting.

Trade, holding  its quarterly general meeting  in this community will be  guests of the local Board of  Trade.  Plans are now well under.  way for greeting the guests  which will include presentation of a folder designed to  give a good idea of the Sechelt  Peninsula, i �� potential and  present attributes.

This matter of sanitation is cropping up  every few minutes in Gibsons. There was a time  when the needy could visit Ihe Mariner Cafe  or either of the two garages but that time of  lush amenities is now past.  Outside the bathroom door's inside the  cafe   is the sign "for staff only".  Inside every alley in the village are self  conscious women with children who know not  of the rules and regulations dictated by prudery. ,..   ���  Inside our village council is the sum of  $6,000 which could well be used in construction  of a public washroom.  One of the first essentials in our lives is  a washroom.  One of the first e-se-tiais of a village re  cleanliness is to provide the facilities for the  people to be clean.  Pigs and cattle are normally not dirty,  but when confined in a small space without  means for keeping clean, both can get very,  very filthy. Believe it or not, the same applies  to human beings.  We hope for hundreds of visitors this year,,  according- to some, the number'will, reach  thousands. The two garages can hardly handle  this type of traffic. Despite the law in this  province which- demands thai cafes be provided with washrooms for the public, it is  hardly sensible to expect the" cafe proprietor  to provide the ameneties for thousands.  But we do expect society in general, to  do so.-:-? -'��� ������ ������'���ii  ��� 'yyiyyuyy. .y'      '    ..^���^���'*��-a;.*�� ):.  From high oil the 'hills and from deep in  Vry vales of Gibson^ every week comes the cry,  "doir't cut down the trees; think of.the tou-  rp.t". Or else, '''���don't build that building;  think of the poor tourist." ,  We predict, this summer the tourist will  certainly see all. of Gibsons. He is being forced  into every cranny and back alley in the area.  He will have ample opportunity to see Gibsons,  but we doubt if the picture will look good to  him or her.  Garbage, water and sanitation and not  necessarily in that order, are the three main  bugbears of th;is community. - S\  About these things little is being done.  We suggest that our Medical Health Officer, is not feeling too good about the conditions in this village. We suggest that when  summer comes he will feel a lot worse and may  even be forced to enforce some of the, very  stringent laws governing the health of a community.  This would indeed be a sorry day for the  village that uses the slogan," "Watch-Gibsons  Grow".  The Board of Trade could do a lot worse  than approach the village commission and  find out how far it is prepared to go hi helping-to build a public convenience which, would,  not alone be for tourists but would help safeguard the health and comfort of the people it'  is sworn to serve.  Commissioner Robert Macnicol, upon being  elected to the commission, scored a surplus of  funds in the community coffers, "when so  much, essential work should have been done."  We suggest, to the. commissioner that here  is a,very good way in which to "get rid" of  some of that surplus that hrr; bona .left, even  after taking more thr.n. a $1,000 for payment  bn the white elephant, with; four wheels sitting  up by Hill's Machine Shop.   . -.;'���  It is going to cost, many hundreds' more  ^dollars to. put this truck on the road. We/fire  going".to have to build a garage for its majesty  but why not sell the truck, the village c mi Id  quite probably break even if not make a slight  prof it, forget the garage and build an ordinary  everyday, very necessary public-toilet.

B of M Manager Finds  Residents of Sechelt Peninsula, are taking considerable interest in Personal Planning, the Bank of Montreal's recently  introduced system of income management, reports Tom Larson,  local B of M branch manager. Most people enjoy making a dollar  go farther but not faster, he finds, and they feel particularly  proud of this., skill under' pressure of today's prices. Personal  Planning, as-th,e booklet now available on the subject emphasizes,  is much more .than a, budget. It's a sane, practical way for the  individual to attain'mastery over his money. It will not make  anyone rich overnight .But it can help the individual to draw  up a purely perspnal blueprint of his finaneial aims in life, and  it can help-him to attain them. Beside this pbsyetiological assist-  tance, Personal Planning also shows how budgeting can be kept  simple..
