I  EDITORIAL  p-  paw Trouble Ahead  THE red light of trouble ahead was.flashed during Village  |ommission meeting when WJB. Boucher urged council to buy  it his. water line along- the.. S^che^it^IIjghw.ay ;and make it part  "an overall plan for,the_ village?'v* *'   v    ~ ~ l<  There are several other privately owned-lines in the area  Jhich^taie owners hope; will-be bouglit by the village when the .  nig awaited bylawis a thing of the!successful past.  i ,t It is possible that many priva/te pipeline  owners will be  appointed when the final cheque is made out- "���'...'.  Village council should not be forced to buy every priyate  Jpeline in the area. It is conceivable many of the private units  e entirely inadequate in the overall picture of supplying suf-  ient water for the best price to Gibsons.  Some are adequate for the purpose, such as supplying one  >m.e or even 20 homes but it may* need pipe capable of supplying  homes in that particular place, then what use would a quarter  ch| gold lined pipe be1 to the> villagV then ? .  |4   Jh' the case of the Boucher property the village has a moral  "|)Iigation but what is eyen stronger, hints; were dropped ''the'p  resent pipe would fit well into the overall picture. There is a  |riod chance this property will be bought, but what of the others?  Cost of th�� hew water system to the village will probably  ;/nge between $40 and $60 thousand dollars. This is a staggering  m and may well frighten many on first looking at the figures.  Pare off the cost of several privately owned water lines and  |idoubtedly a few dollars could be saved.  It must be remembered this council is hot oblgated to buy  fry private system-, Hard as it may sound, this council cannot  bnestlybuy a system which will not aid and abet the planned  ogram.    ' .-;��� ���*.;"'-".;;:  It would be stupid for Gibsons to gear or plan its water sys-  ^m around seyeralprveyen one present: w ������������-,  tj. The. newplan will, have to be one of imagination and fore-  |iought for a future of 20 years: To hinge it on someone's overgrown garden hose would be near criminal wastage.

Water ShortapfMay  Face Gibsons Soon  GIBSONS;��� The water situation in this village is again  getting serious. '/ .  " Waiter in the small clam is  very . low'', rep'qrted ' Water  Commissioner James Hall.  "Owing to the' hot 'weather  there ' is not enough water  flowing in the creek.'f  Commission,' startled by the  information, will give- Water  Caretaker R. Nimnio authority to prosecute gardeners who  are over sprinkling-  Move to prosecute was made  by Commissioner Macnicol  backed by the water commissioner.  , This community, bathed in  "most successful and pleasant,'  eiated Boards of Trade ��� of th  Wednesday.  Council Helps To  Buy Ferry Bunting  GIBSONS. ��� The ferry day  committee will be $25 richer  according to a decision made  by council when requested to  donate toward cost of a permanent stock of decorations^  A hint was given the committee by one'of the directors  of the Ratepayers Association  who pointed out that no approach had been made that  quite willing to donate a few  dollars if we were asked," he  said.  Ruling Made on Who May      }  Vote for Water Bflaw  **v  GIBSONS.'��� Only property^di^er ratepayers will be  o   allowed to vote in the pending* money bylaw to be used in  purchasing water distribution equipment for the village. .....  This wiU'not be a local improvement bylaw wher^ only  certain affected sections will vote.  All ratepayers within the village boundaries or their  proxies can vote on the water bylaw which is due to come  forward "within & few weeks-"  They who pay business or trade licenses only, may not  . vote.-   ;������-:  This ruling was read out by Village Clerk Robert Burns  when the question arose during bylaw discussion at a recent  meeting of the council.:  TaJk was sparked by a letter from A.C. Scott who re  quested tlie information.  Eric Inglis Loses His  Long Fight For Building  GIBSONS. ��� It was the old against the new when Village  Commission came out with a three to two decision against approving the application of Eric Inglis to build an addition onto his  present warehouse.  Granting the application were Commission Chairman Mrs..  Nestman and Commissioner W-Skellett.  The   three recently   elected ��  sunshine-was host, to one of the .  ' quarterly meetings of the Asso-,  e Eraser  Valley, and  Mainland;,  More than  70 persons gath->  ered under the sun on the lawn  of the Sechelt Inn and covered -  a wide range of subjects from  listening to an outline of pres-,  ent   plans  for  the   Aluminum  ' Company of Canada to a plea  by    Pender    Harbour    Board,  of    Trade    President,    Royal  Murdock  for  backing   in   ini-'  proved  roads   aiid   power  for  Pender.      -���'���:"���  Meeting was called to order  by President W-A.

A- plea Was- read from the ;  Honorable Harry Bowman,  minister of agriculture, urging  everyone to ; help gather the  fruit crops ��� in, the . Fraser  Valley. "These crops are highly  perishable and the shortage of  help will create a dangerous  situation,"   the- minister   said.

The application had caused  a furore among neighbours who  objected to the- second story  being built. Reasons included  children being run over, shutting ou�� sunlight, dust drifting,;  lowering-of property values  and not adding to tourist  attractions.

'  Mr. Hajll ponsted out that  more use should be made of  ratepayer groups when wishing  to present a point' of view.  1' This   Avould   then do  away  the:pr6psals  before   council.

Slajted only .for summer schedule, it is nice to see the Lady  Alexandra nosing into the Peninsula.  It was boats such as these that built this area. It was such  like companies that made-.the northland the giant it is today.  And, as so often happens in like eases, progress' passes or else the  companies grow and gear for other traffic, Such ,is the case with  Union Steamships-  They helped to build this country and they will continue to  do service which can-only be done by them.  Thoughts that the. Union are just coming back for the  "gravy "are hardly fair. Black Ball officials have declared their  pleasure that a service which they could not provide under the  circumstances, is being given to the people which they also serve  and with whom they will also grow.  A'feeling of pride fills many hearts on the Sechelt Peninsula*  upon sight of the "Alex". A stately lady, she was in at the birth  of many of our citizens, either taking them to hospital pr back.  From a purely nostalgic and memory stirring point of view,  the Union flag at Gibsons is welcome.  Reader's Right  DISAGREES WITH MR-  F.  BUSHFIELD  EDITOR, THE NEWS  SIR.  IN your issue of May 24,  you publish a leteer by Mr.  Frank. Bushfield in which he  seriously objects to a liquor  store here. He adopts the customary ministerial attitude iof  attacking the effect rather  than, the seeking for causes  leading.to liquor consumption-  Thomas Hardy wrote, "After  two thousand years of mass,  We've got as faras poison gas"  I might add for Mr.  Bushfields benefit,- also atom  bombs, drug ..fiends and sex  crimes.

And yet, I have seen  more   drunken v persons   in .a  small prairiei 'town in one day  than I saw in the city in one  year.' -*~  Mr.  Bushfield  asserts  that  liquor is a drug and the drinking of same is a disease. I  would reply that our medical  profession prescribes considerable drugs for human ailments  and if drinking liquor is a  disease, the chances for survival of our western civilization must appear very dismal  to Mr. Bushfield.  If our church ministers could  only get out of their theological and dogmatic rut and make  a more realistic and historical  study of human society and its  development to find the basic ���  causes why humanity acts as  it does, they would probably  be more useful and successful  in helping to raise the cultural  and moral welfare of mankind-  Yours  For   Tolerance, x  '  - ��� -   - ii n _i ii  DEPLORES LIQUOR STORE  ���:, EDITOR, THE NEWS  Z SIR, ...;:        .:-y--yy . .:.:-:pz.

Cherry Whitaker is back with  her column, Much- Ado. This  is the first of a series and was  started before Christmas but we  will let Cherry tell it in her  own fashion.  Dear Diary: July 31.  The * boss   says   he 311   print  more columns if I'll write more  ���'columns,1 so it looks as if I'll  have to write more columns if  I want to have more columns  printed. He wants four in advance,  because  he  gets  tired  reaching up to pull his blood  pressure down whenever Much  Ado  beats the, deadline  in  a  phonographic  finish.   '' Whenever "being about once a week  I can see that the boss may be  developing an allergy. Well���  its his allergy and his paper,  so who am I to argue. Anyway  its quite simple.-All I have to  do. is toss ��� off four. sixteen to  twenty; inchers and wer'e back  in the saddle again. As good as  done-  August 31: Pretty busy last  month. Thirty five guests, millions of boys of assorted sizes  building a tree house  outside  and just being themselves on  rainy    days    inside.    Racoons  stealing the chickens at night  and skunks stealing-the chickens eggs whenevervthe thought  struck them.  (A word of advice to the novice: If you have  vto  lope  aroundcrtl3Je.,;ehieken-  uyard^ at 2 a.m. inrsearch of a  maurauder,  remember   to   put  on slippers first. It saves time  when you want to go; back to  bed.).. I must start the columns  right away .v. in fact the, minute  school opens I shall have at it.  September 31: The children  long have gone back-to school-  8 ^had ���? a: *> irtMayi, SQt^��S��e|had  a birthday parjty and someone  else had a party but no birthday.   The  results   are   similar.  Wrestled with the problem of  rising prices, growing boys and  and approaching, winter.  Saw  the boss today, but before he  saw    me    remembered    something  extremely  urgent that  needed my attention. Just pure  bad luck that I had to go in the  opposite    direction.    Got    the  typewriter out and sat awhile.  October  31:  Another birthday this month. Top man in the  junior   brigade   was   11-   Hot  dogs,  waffles,   cake   and  icecream by request.  Paving the.  way for future ulcers, no doubt.  Cooking waffles for eight lusty  appetites,  on one  waffle  iron  is an" experience that does not  bear repeating, even in thought.  Recovered physical, social and  mental strength in time to take  this   evenings  Halloween   on~  slought with a reasonable degree   of  calmness.   Perhaps   it  would be well to put some copy  paper in the machine tomorrow.

He says he likes  Granthams very much but still  likes to come, up and see a few  old friends once in awhile.  Mrs. R.D- Cooke is in Vancouver   for   a   few   days.   We  were sorry to learn that.
