 [ffender Harbour  Regalia Plans  PENDER    HARBOUR  ���  Plans  are now well under way toward  : making this year's regatta one of  the best and probably the largest  in history.  Feature event will be the proposed International Yacht Club  races, which will include entries  from Canada and the States. A  request has.been sent to Nanaimo  asking them to be host at the  starting point of the event which  is patterned after the big races  held over a several day period.  It is pointed out that this race  -is really a miniature of the international races. It will cater to  boats which cannot enter the  larger races owing to their limited size. It will be a one-day  race.  Novelty events are expected to  be bigger and better. It is planned to have more competition in  the log rolling and an attempt  -will be "made to include Indian  war canoe races.  ii.-:  P-TA Social  lis Big Success  I GIBSONS ��� Square dances and  1 old time roundelays marked  | the  successful  P-TA  social  and  I dance held recently in the School  ���Hall.  v Ray Elliot did a masterful job  'as MC and handled the music  Hbox as well.

Under lease to Mr and Mrs  W. C. Bayly, the popular eating place has taken on new  life. Meals are served from  8.30 a.m. until well on in the  early hours of the morning.  Pop trior and ever smiling,  Mrs Bayly bids fair to become  as well liked as her food. The  new operation is another clue  to the virility and growth of  the area as a whole.  Naval Base  Firehall Site  Investigation  GIBSONS ��� Ratepayers here  may have the opportunity of  selecting a site for the'proposed  firehall, according to plans suggested by Gibsons and District  Ratepayers' Association.  In order to clarity some opposition to the firehall site as proposed by a majority of the Village Commission, the unit will  urge the Commission to hold a  referendum vote on the site."  It is proposed to ask the commission to release all figures per-  Sign of the Times  GIBSONS ��� This community's  ratepayers' association will  change its by-laws in order to  reduce the number of members  required for a quorum.  taining  to   cost   of  the   planned  building.  It was further resolved that a  committee of the association will  endeavor to find more suitable  sites. Findings will be reported  to a general meeting, April 6.  To Gambier    Trade Body's Program  Is Lights for Pender  GAMBIER ISLAND ��� Tenders  have been called by the government for construction of a  wharf and auxiliary parts at El-  kins Point, Georgia Bay.  Amount of expenditure will be  approximately $50,000. It is expected the new establishment will  be part of the present naval unit  in Vancouver, the HMCS Discovery. The new installation will  be used in training naval cadets.  Ratepayers Score Victoria  aitiafion  GIBSONS ��� More interest in ratepayers' meetings was urged  by Secretary P. Leach when he reported on year's work to  members of Gibsons and District Ratepayers' Association ot its  general meeting.  Mr Leach warned that successful operation of village affairs depended greatly on the. interest of ratepayers.  He reported on business trans-   acted during last year, including  the pressing for a breakwater at  Gibsons, garbage disposal, a  problem that had not yet been  solved owing to difficulty- of locating a garbage dump.  The association supported the  proposal made at the. convention  of the B.C. Union of Municipalities that Village Commissions  be increased from three to five  members. He reported the organization was the means of directing attention to the need for reorganization of the Volunteer Fire  (Continued on Page 8)  PENDER HARBOUR���The B.C.   Power Commission   learned a  little something recently when they discussed power with  Pender Harbour Board of Trade.  Instigated by Sechelt Board of Trade Chairman, Ken  Whitaker, the commission and a delegation from Pender Harbour, consisting qf John Haddock, R. Cherry and Royal Murdock  met and discussed probability of extending the power lines from  Clowholm Falls to serve the harbour.  The     Commission    were    not  aware   that  Pender   needed   the  power, according to a spokesman.  .Mr   Western,-- commission   chairs-  man,  authorized- an  engineering  survey be made immediately on  the  potential  and  feasability  of  the  program.   He   assured     that  Pender   Harbour   would   receive  consideration   in   the   Clowholm  picture, but pointed out  that  it  would take 600 subscribers before  the plan could be feasible from  the   commission's   avowed   principle of pay as you go.  Another stumbling block may  be the Welcome Beach cut off.  This must go through before the  commission could possibly fulfill  any  actual promises.  This same clause entered into  previous power discussions with  Halfmoon Bay representatives  when they interviewed the commission.  Legion  Meeting  1ELPHINSTONE and District Zone Council of the Canadian Legion met. in the hall of the Sechelt Branch on March 1.  ^Representatives came from Sechelt, Roberts Creek, Howe  [.Sound and Pender Harbour branches. Powell River and Texada  [urtits were not represented. ;  Zone Commander;; Bob Macnkr  Ipl was chairman.'  Secretary  Cotton read  correspondence, and reports were filed  )oh: pooling of transportation ex-  jpenses and the Legipn's legislate  f\ive programme.

The chairman said the government, through its Minister of Vet-.  . erans' Affairs, had refused to act  'in the request of the Legion for  Will Survey  Pender Pool  PENDER HARBOUR ��� A swimming pooT it is���already.  Mixed up with many other  problems facing the Regatta Committee and its parent body, the  Board of Trade, is the contentious one of a swimming pool site.  Garden Bay is the mooted location but so much opposition to  this plan has been voiced that a  committee will investigate the  subject thoroughly. Those in favor contend the pool can be built  there for the minimum cost. It is  hinted this is probably the most  central of all proposed sites.  iL Charged with trying to clear  up the muddled situation are E.  Carpenter, S. Anderson, J. Shairp  and R. Murdock. It is hoped a report will be made at the next  meeting on March 20, at the Club  House  SECHELT���Both sides in the Public Utilities Hearing on Union  Estates application for an increase in water rates, seemed  confident of at least partial success.  Commission decision will be handed down at a still undisclosed date.  Legal counsel Milton D. Owen  for Union Estates, based his  pleading on figures showing the  water system had actually lost  money during past years. To even  keep present service in operation  it would be necessary to raise the  rates, he contended. Adding that  expansion or renewal of outmoded portions and worn pipe was  out of the question under present  revenue.  Thomas Campbell, based his  argument on the contention the  company had actually made money during its operation but had  failed to credit the system. He  admitted slight increases were  necessary for expansion but contended that proposed boosts were  out of line.  He used figures and cross examination of company witnesses  to try and uphold his argument.  Dr W. A. Carrothers, long-  (Continued  on  Page  8)  Sechelt P-TA to  Debate Federal  Aid for Education  "FEDERAL  Aid   for   Education"  will be debated at the March  23rd  meeting  of  Sechelt United  P-TA.  Ray Elliott, principal of Gibsons ^ Elementary .. School... and  StanXTruemari, principal Gibsons  High School, will debate the pros  and cons, with Mr Elliott taking  the affirmative.  Bearing in mind the strong  possibility that the voting public  may have to make a decision on  this question, It is urged that  everyone attend this meeting,  Thursday, March 23, in Legion  Hall,  Sechelt.  Hearing Aid Expert  To Visit Sechelt  MR D. R. GARDNER, a trained  technician from Maico Hearing  Service, Vancouver, will be conducting a hard of hearing survey  in Sechelt on Thursday, March  16th. Local residents with a hearing problem are invited to contact Mr Gardner at The Inn, Sechelt, ." to discuss Maico's latest  methods of overcoming this handicap. The clinic will be open  from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on the  above date.  To assure feasability, the Pender Board of Trade, Light and  Power Committee, chairman John  Haddock, will undertake a survey of potential users in the area.  A start on the canvass will be  made immediately. It is pointed  out that any interested parties  may obtain all information from  the Board of Trade.  Canvassers will include W. Peiper, J. W. Potts, Lloyd Davis, R.  Kolehniainen, J. Haddock, R.  Spicer,    Duncan    Cameron,     J.  Brewster,   R.   Murdock   and   A.  Cherry.

According to a spokesman for  the fishermen now trying for dog  fishing off Cape Lazo, prices may  be considerably less.  C6$l catches are down, average  weight landed at Egmont recently was a mere 500 pounds. Prices  of these are lower than last year.  Said the spokesman, "This  year's fishing season should be a  very busy one. Our little friends  the Japs are swarming the coastal waters awaiting their long  awaited chance to return to the  fishing." ~ XX"'  GIBSONS���Some light may have been thrown on the school  ������-*���'������������ bylaw question with completion of a tour made under  sponsorship bf thfe paper.  Led by Mrs L. S. Jackson, chairman of the school board,  acting unofficially, and Francis Drage, J.P., school bylaw opponent, the several person committee inspected schools between  Gibsons and Pender Harbour.  Mrs Jackson and Mr Drage had    ���������  no comment to make at the end  of the trip.  It is believed Mr Drage, responsible for the by-law being  thrown out by the supreme court  last year, will make an announcement on his findings when he  speaks at a bi-monthly meeting  of Kinsmen, Wednesday.  Among those in the party,  formed in an effort to clarify the  contentious by-law problem, were  Mrs Violet Billington and B. H.  James, of Bowen Island, Horace  Aggett from Davis Bay, Mrs Mc-  rea, West Sechelt, Francis Drage,  Gambier Harbour, Mrs L. S. Jackson, Wilson Creek, N. R. McKibbin, Gibsons, and a representative of this paper.  30IAH3S  0 9  VIHOI0JA Readers Say  SIR:  The plethora of verbiage which  has been appearing in the press  for and against the proposal to  supply school accommodation  (mostly "against") in this district  prompts me to review local school  history.  I started to school at Gibsons  Landing in the year 1900; at that  time it was a little one-room  school, and at times it was difficult to maintain the attendance  of eight pupils required to keep  the school. Bowen Island had a  similar one-room school, operating under similar difficulties. I  believe these were the. only  schools at that time in the area  now known as Sechelt School  District No. 46. X  As time went on schools were  opened at various additional  points; some of these only carried  on for a few years, for example,  Gambier Island, Doriston, Deserted Bay. However, many of  the new schools proved to be  permanent requirements, and  some, such as Gibsons and Sechelt, have had almost continuous growth. Others, such as  Bowen Island and Pender Harbour did not grow at the same  rate, though they have continued  to be very necessary.  For many years the educational facilities were rather primitive; one-room schools, with one  teacher doing the best she could  with all grades; children walking  LAMB  FINE  OLD  NAVY RU  long distances to school (my brothers and sisters walked four  miles). A roof, four walls, an airtight heater and water carried  up from a creek was often the  school accommodation. Any education beyond what is now  known as the eighth grade had  to be obtained in Vancouver. I  didn't get any, but my younger  sisters did, by working for their  board in town while attending  high school.  But this did not mean that the  residents and parents were satisfied with conditions; they were  mostly of the true pioneer spirit,  willing to accept hardship and  inconvenience as a temporary  measure, but determined to improve conditions as rapidly as  possible. Here at Gibsons a decided impetus to better school  conditions was received from an  incoming group of settlers of  Finnish blood. These people seldom appeared in society columns, did not do much flag-waving, and seldom went to church;  but they were very able and industrious workers, devoted to the  principle that children should,  have the best possible chance in  the world, and were the kind of  people who were always quietly  on the job if a neighbor was in  trouble. In short, they were the  kind of people, belonging to  many races, who pioneered and  opened up America, from the Atlantic westward.  The' pressure for better educational facilities was unremitting;  but any proposal to that effect  almost inevitably entailed more  costs, and therefore higher taxes.  Consequently, opposition to any  improvement in conditions was  likewise unremitting. However,  the general over-all picture has  been one of victory for the progressive groups, though often at  the cost of much self-sacrificing  effort, and sometimes only after  of a (katun^  Bottled ��- Shipped by  ALFRED LAMBsSOfU���  LONDON,ENGLAND  This advertisement is not published or  displayed by the Liquor Control Board or  by the Government of British Columbia.

Having in mind the present debate over school building, it is interesting to remember those old  battles and the personel of the  opposing factions and to realize  that history does repeat itself.  Among the proponents of improved educational facilities were usually to be found the men and  women who had, by hard work,  contributed a large share to the  constructive effort of the growing community and country. Not  generally people of means (people who do the actual work of  the community seldom are), often  of meagre education themselves,  they were determined that the  children should have better opportunity than they had had, and  were prepared to do their utmost  to find the required funds.        t  In contrast, the opposition  groups usually included the people who managed to evade actual work; very seldom did they  include members of the real pioneer families. Rather, they were  the later comers, who arrived  after the rough edges were  smoothed off a bit, often with a  bit of money for speculation.  Then there were the sycophants  who hung around those with the  money; all were very much  against wasting that sacred thing  known as money in schooling the  offspring of the hoi polloi. As one  old boy, a public school man  from the Old Country, said to me  "These people don't need to go  to school to cut shingle-bolts."  The general trend has been  forward, notwithstanding failure  (locally, at any rate) during the  hungry thirties, to adequately  maintain and extend building accommodation,, and similar failure  during the war years, which was  to some extent due to repeated  requests from Government to defer all possible work until after  the war. Whether the forward  trend will continue is another  matter. The type of resident has  changed; the pioneer spirit and  community mindedness of the  early settler is being replaced  by another type, the retired or  semi-retired man with a little  money and the absentee owner  who is very conscious of his taxes  and has little real interest in the  progress of the district or the  welfare of the residents. The future is hard to predict, but an  encouraging thought is that in  Canada, at least from the Ottawa  River west, final victory has usually gone to the progressive factions who espouse the cause of  better living conditions for the  people.

The first period, ending with 1899,  was a pioneer period, not only in mining but in the development of the Province. Gold, mostly placer, silver, lead,  copper, coal, building stone, brick, etc.; were produced  to the value of $135,773,000.    ���"  In 1900 7,400 miners produced coal, lode-gold, lead,  silver, copper and other materials to the value of $16,-  344,000.  In 1949 16,500 miners produced lead, zinc, copper,  coal, gold, structural materials and miscellaneous metals  and materials to a value of $130,800,000.  <*���  /  Mine production for the first fifty years of this century  had a value of $2,430,000,000, nearly twenty times  that of the'previous fifty years.  ,? *  With ever increasing uses for metals, minerals and  mineral products the last fifty years of this century  should prove to be the greatest fifty years in mining in  British Columbia. j  m  Department of Mines  VICTORIA, B.C.  190  i;t ; '-ji.i  '''.I''-y<\% ROY WARD DICKSON  ____uu.da'_i "king of quia" who is heard for  j half hour every Wednesday night at 9:30  i THE FUN PARADE.

No doubt all taxpayers in the  school district have* now been  made aware, through, the local  press, of the new money by-law  to be presented during the spring,  amounting to approximately  $300,000, and though I am given  to understand it has not yet gained assent from the Department  of Education, the fact remains  that whatever amount is finally  agreed upon, and brought to a  plebescite, the decision for the  voter will be to pass it or to defeat it in its entirety.  The only means towards a compromise or to its modification,  will be to defeat it, and for the  School Board to then draw up a  new one of lesser proportions.  This is most unfortunate, because  the situation could have been  thoroughly clarified by means of  a series of discussion meetings,  arranged by the Trustees,  throughout the district, prior to  presentation to the Department  of Education.

Most Little People (sometime  in their life) have little Little  People in their homes. These little L.P. spend almost one-third  of their waking hours in school  rooms. They have every right to  expect a complete 12-year education in comfortable surroundings.  3. The little L.P. in this School  District need schools right now.  4. The Government taking over  the cost of schools is, as yet, merely an idea ��� and offerc no solution for the district at present.  5. If the Government should  take over this cost it is not reasonable to assume that it' will  print $10,000 bills and pass them  out in bundles (no obligation or  expense entailed) to all poor but  deserving  School  Districts.  6. Anybody who thinks that  National Revenue doesn't come  (indirectly or directly) out of the  L.P.'s homes, purses, pockets,  etc.. is exceedingly naive!  7. Property Taxes are far down  the list of factors that go to make  the L.P.'s purses thin ��� to name  a few: seasonal unemployment;  high  cost   of food;  high  freight  (Continued on Page   .6)  Weak, Tired, Nervous,  Pepless Men, Women  Get New Vim,A/igor, Vitality.

Conclusion:  Whereas the National Government is not, at present (and in  all probability will not be in the  near future) giving away schools  for free���and   ,  Whereas Property Taxes have  very little to do with the L.P.'s  financial plight today ��� (Before  any proposed additional school  tax has .been levied there is a  condition existing in which, and  I quote Mr Drage���"Men and women ������ at the present time, barely eat . . .") and X  Whereas the little L.P. need  and deserve adequate schools  now. (We have their welfare at  heart too!)  Then it must be concluded that:  1. Fixing financial responsibility of schools on National Revenue will neither increase welfare of L.P. nor provide needed  schools at present.  2. The defeat of the SchoqjjBy-  , Law will not be a solution to the  ���"^L.P.'s welfare nor will the money  -���thus   "saved"   by  the  individual  taxpayer do much to fatten his  purse.  3.

Amalgamation of the Village  with adjacent areas also had the  support of the association providing that a satisfactory agreement could be arrived at between  the outside people and the village authorities.  A Zoning By-Law had been  recommended to the Village  Commission, and it is regretted  that up to date the Commission  has not seen fit to take any action  upon^such a; vital question reported Mr Leach.  In concluding his report, Secretary Leach pointed out that with  the growthr of the., village it was  s necessary for taxpayers to take  more interest in local activities,  This could be done by joining  the ratepayers' body, where members could express their opinions,  for or against, proposals connected with the welfare of the local  corhmunity.  President Bob Macnicol commented briefly upon the year's  work and thanked members for  their co-operation and support.  He expressed hope for an early  conclusion to amalgamation proceedings but objected to pressure  being exercised by the government in this connection. He said,  "because this or that had not  been done in the past, was no  reason why it could not be attempted in the future."
