This pleasant surprise packet  ' "!'���-  WE HATE to have to take issue with Village Council members or individuals but, for the sake of truth and true representation, we are forced to so do.  ���  Mr. James Hall, that much abused and maligned'water commissioner has again stuck out his willing neck.   Speaking as'a commissioner, he addressed the meeting of  Gibsons and District Ratepayers, headed by W. Hodgson and,    Qov*er   Point   Road  jn the usual Hallariari manner' kicked around some harsh words, '   ��� ;  utright accusations and veiled inuendos.    ,  It seems to us that Mr. Hall has,acquired a habit.of making  VON Grant Increase  May Be Coining  GIBSONS. ��� Further VON  grants may be in the offing if  attempts made by B.M.  Maclntyre, MLA to have the  government grants increased,  are successful.  Shortage of nursing service  funds was brought to light by  A.E. Ritchey when "he Requested  more money for the Victorian  Order of Nurses.  The MLA assured that he  had already spoken to the  minister of Health and Welfare  but would push f,'or furvfher  increases, "immediately".  The VON drive for funds  started three weeks ago.  came out df'.ihe blue to residents of this Peninsula), many  of whom are in the low income  group and have difficulty paying the increased premiums.  B.M. Maclntyre, MLA made  the announcement when he Avas  guest speaker at a slipper  meeting, of Liberals in the  Mariner Cafe.  Thursday.     . /'���  Mr. Maclntyre also disclosed  that a committee seft lip'-to  study the ^-hospital insurance  question would also investigate  "and try to help", the persons  mentioned in briefs rec'e'iitly  rre-ented by the Canadian  Legion and Army and Navy  Veterans. . ������-  "This committee," said  Mr.  Maclntyre,   "will   try   to find  an asys/er to the vexing question   of   veteran's .dependents  and  the   hospital   insurance'"'.

That, in all truth is Commissioner William  |k��ile.tt's department. We' assure Mr. Hall that Commissioner  skellett will do all the battle that is necessary in 'his zone.  ;iThle 'water: commissioner discussed everything ajbout the  tillage commission and the ^leaks'' of news from Commission  tlhairman Mrs. E: Nestman, but no one knew much about the  Serious, water situation when he was finished.  This is hardly good enough when eyery vote.in favour of the  fylaw is needed.  We suggest formation of a private committee which will  piide the bylaw through to a- successful conclusion.  This committee, formed of business men from Gibsons, cog-  lizant of the situation^should get put the truth' and let us all take  I look at thevwaiiing'water supply and the decrepid pipes.

The Sechelt Motor Transport  application was based on a  promise from Captain A.  Peabody, president of Black  Ball Ferries that "two buses  would-be assured room on the  car ferry".   ���     ������   ���   ���  Objection of Pacific Stages  was based, on lessening of traffic to it by virtue of tfhat company being the only concern  now conveying Gibsons "and  Sechelt Peninsula traffic;   ���       .  Union Steamships-, with its  recently announced five trips  pervweek, is also conveying  passengers from Vancouver.  Sechelt Motor Transport now  has a franchise to use the pending Port Mellon road, according to Cecil Lawrence, company  manager;  ''This would make a complete  service for the area", he said.  In    outlining    the    "closed  doors",       application,       Mr.  Lawrence  clarified the  mean-  in'g.Y V: ,, ' |  "It simply means we cannot  pick up passengers on the road  between 'Hoiieshoe Bay and  Vancouver while enroute to  Vancouver and by* the fSame,  token we cannot pick up passengers leaving Vancouver to  be dropped prior to the ear,  ferry."     .'������������  "We   will   not  be   able   to  GIBSONS. ��� Sparks flew at the general meeting of the  Gibs_ons and District Ratepayer's meeting when I).

Main speaker at the meeting,  Mr Hall led off with a resume  of work done by several of the  depa, men'ts within village  council, and suggested "leaks"  of news through Mrs. Nestman  to the. papers and hinted tha��  it would hardly take the Department of Motor Vehicles a  whs: le. month to return licenses  for the village truck. Mr. Hall  suggested dilly dallying methods used, by the village clerk  could probably account for the  belated license arrival.

We can  drop our own, Sechelt Peninsula passengers anywhere, of  course".  village  Batt Does kjQOQJQ  Defining Democracy  it.  GIBSONS. ��� V^Wnat is democracy ?".  B.M. Maclntyrei MLA asked this question, and thcr answered  when he addressed members of the Liberal Association".  '' I   believe   .that  democracy  is election of a man and charging him. with doing his utmost  for the country and the constituency .- to the very besjt  of his ability. I do not believe  democracy is going to Victoria  and. then -listening to every  pressure group that should  arise and trying to do tihe  bidding of many".  The MLA was defending his  s,tand on the various questions  that arose during recent sitting  of the legislature.  "I believe my contention is  the right one," Mr Maclntyre  said. " When a .man spends a  year or two in Victoria-he is  usually better informed on  current controversies than the  average ^itSzjen, therefore Ihe  should be allowed to make his  own decision in the light of  his wider knowledge."

L^oast  If Jews L^ditoriate  Too Short a Memory  DURING the. hungry 30s the Government of Canada granted  an advanced old age pension to some veterans and named it the-  [War Veteran's Allowance Act or the Burnt Out Pension.  The principal was sound in that it granted premature pension  to men who had grown older than their brothers by virtue of  having served overseas and became aged with the rigours of  battle.  The act also provided that veterans who were unemployable  could also receive this pension at an earlier age. At that time the  federal old age pension was $20 per month for the single man  and $40 for tJhe married. This was a joint^ contribution from the'  Provincial and Federal governments.  The war veteran's allowance' was then the same rate, the  only difference being the Dominion government was the sole  contributor.  The story changes now. The old age pensioner and his wife  receive, by virtue of the Provincial bonus the sum of $100 plus  the- unwritten law of free hospitalization for both of them.  The War Veteran's Allowance for a married man is $70  dollars and 84 cents with no allowance fftr medical attention or  hospitalization for the wife.  No one can deny that this amount is inadequate and that it  is time the Government of Canada gave some expLairtimr~regaTd���  ing the discrimination against veterans.  Many of the Conservative members- of his Majesty's Loyal  Opposition are crying for reform. We suggest our government  stops talking and does some acting on this vital problem.  We would point out to our member, Mr. Sinclair, that many  veterans in receipt of the Burnt out Pension are in dire: straits.  May we have your attention on this-, Sir?.  After one of the outstanding victories of the first great war,  when the Canadian Expeditionary Force had covered itself with  glory, Sir Robert Borden, the,then Prime Minister told the world  that nothing would be too good for these heroes.  Today, the old soldier, lacking sufficient of the necessities  and without medical attention for his aged wife agrees.  Nothing is too good for them. They're1-tired of notching now.  It is up to Canada tp^jgiye with just a shade more generosity and  guided by a memoryof 1914 - 1918.

Clue to the faith many residents have in this growing  district, lays in the announcement by veteran realtor and  business man A. M. Howell  that Selma Heights, with its  54 huge building lots is now  open for sales.  Clue, also to the potential of  this beautiful homfeteite subdivision is the story that quite  a number of the lots were sold  Within a matter of days. Local  men and women; wise in the  ways of the Sechelt Peninsula  have bought lots upon .which  they can build in l^ter years.  .;.;.;���"��� This area, "said one Board  of Trade booster, "is one of the  -finest in. the long .line of unbroken beauty that makes up,  -?��� bur coastline, f  Servedhyialllthemain stores-  in tjie area aided by fast, daily  delivery,   Selma  Heights  mayA  well be glad of its position,on  the map.; >- .;��� '. \ v  A huge, new power plants  generating .sufficient electricity to serve the Sechelt Penin-  . sula far into .the .foreseeable  future is now nearing completion at Clowholm Falls^The  present diesel plants of .the.B..
