Even the sound of the waves  lapping the shore along at the  foot of Keri Whitaker's place  sounds different���sounds cheerier and more as if the world was  shaking itself loose from the  white chains which have bound  it for so long.  Mrs Thelmai Booker was taking a little time off from the  Union Store iri order to get some  of her daily chores done. I no-  |- ticed her riding around Sechelt  I in a^ew'Car the other day.  Mrsdeorge Batchelor, peren-  , ial president of the L.A. to the  X Sechelt branch of the Canadian  V .Legion, was telling me about her  \ daughter.

I rate for  1950 at 10 mills. This, based on taxation of 100 percent  on land and 50 percent on improvements will bring in approximately $1900.  Grants and revenue from the Power Commission and incidental taxes is expected to bring the total to $6500. This is  more money in the treasury but less from the actual tax source.  Boarding Schools  May Appear  GIBSONS ���- Boarding schools  may this year appear on the  Sechelt Peninsula in order to  assure older students an opportunity to complete schooling.  Robert Leith, school trustee,  suggested the noval idea at a  recent meeting . of the school  board, and received unreserved  approval.  Plans are now under way to  fulfilling the idea, born because  pupils in grades 10 and il are  without education facilities here.  "Students that age have the  blackest outlook  as  far as con-  Mill rate last year was 20 but higher assessments  now    tinuing  their  education   is   con-  ?  f _   ...

The  tending joke is that when you  are  going along the road.   and  you come to one of the numerous holes,  the proper procedure  is to  stop and blow your horn  three times.

(Wiring Law to  Be Changed Now  GIBSONS���Recent rules , in respect to electrical regulations,  passed by the provincial cabinet  recently, will have far reaching  effects on the Peninsula. The  riew law demands that every  person be licensed by the government who installs electrical  clevices or wiring in areas not  Covered by municipal inspection.  7 The regulations, issued under  the Electrical Energy Inspection  Act, will become effective when  published in the B.C. Gazette.  7 They require that any individual engaged in electrical contracting or a member of any electrical contracting firm obtain a  ..certificate of competency, valid  X   -'(Continued on Page 8)  MRS MARY LAYTON ARCHIBALD, 98 years young, of  Davis Bay, is glad to see the  snow gradually disappearing.  She can now start getting ready  for her daily walks in the garden home of her daughter and  son-in-law, Mr and Mrs Albert  Chilton.  Born in Nova Scotia, Mrs  Archibald came west 40 years  ago. Renowned in the area for  her fine crocheting and tatting,  she is acknowledged as champion Chinese checker player of  the Davis Bay area. She is the  aunt of the late famed UBC professor, Dr G. G. Sedgewick.  Draw Postponed*  RECENT seizure   of tickets  and  equipment  from   the   Optimist  Club in Vancouver is having re-  percusions here.  The Canadian Legion has postponed its draw indefinitely pending the outcome of the case in  Vancouver.  Officials, here feel it would be  with the draw in face of the official position.  make this rate out of line with the needs of the village according to Commissioner Mrs E. Nestman.  The parking by-law for the village is now in effect and  will be enforced immediately. Signs are to be erected as soon as  they are made.  ��mw$.' < V  - > - ->-   -.'    ,     "     s - -       .       '       '     P *    'r  Gibsons May Get  First Fire Hall  GIBSONS���This  village may  at  last have a fire hall as well  as a new fire brigade.  Clifford Leach, newly appointed fire brigade leader,  placed plans for the proposed  16 x 40 foot building before  village council and was assured  sympathy in his aims. It is expected the green light will be  given to start construction at  next council meeting.  The sum of $1000 has already  been set aside for this purpose  and $500 more is earmarked  from another source.  It is planned tp install an ARP  ^rumpTbn:'<t(8ri_ ^hused hull, ' mak-~  ing a fireboat of it in order to  combat fire along the waterfront.  Voting Date Not Set  $530,000SchoolsGiven  Okay; Gov't Pays HaU  SECHELT���Unqualified approval for new schools costing  $530,000 was given Board of  School Trustees, School District  46, at a meeting of representa-  -tives, Saturday.  CostXto ratepayers will be in  the neighborhood of $265,000.  This is less than the previous  bylaw which was, after passing,  discarded by the Supreme Court  of B.C. in an unprecedented action brought on by Howe Sound  ratepayers in appealing- the bylaw on technical grounds.  The new bill provides for added schools costing $32,500 at  Billings Bay and Egmont.  Slashes have been made iri some  of the previously planned schools.  Actual reduction from the previous bylaw amounts to $76,500  plus the two new units.  Voting- date will be set following expected approval from the  ���Department oi. Education. '<|t_ is .  within the- minister's powers to  stop or suggest changes in the  bylaw. Nearly 50 percent of the  gross costs is borne by the department.  A breakdown of the new bylaw follows:  Gibsons High School was $360,-  800���now $292,600. Roberts Creek  was $77,200^-riow $44,550. Sechelt Addition was $34,600-r-now  $31,200. Madeira Park was$92,��  700���now $94,050. Billings Bay,  new, $7500. Egmont, new, $25,-  000. School sites will cost $2300  for the addition to Gibsons and  $500 for the Egmont site.        m  Equipment amounts to $31,500.  Last year it was slightly lower,  at $31,490. Cost of the printing  and debenture issuing will bring  the total to $530,000.  It was decided, to have fully  informative meetings throughout  the Peninsula in order to bring  home the seriousness of the  schooling situation.  S. Fladager  Elected President  S. FLADAGER was elected president of Branch 109, Canadian  Legion,  at  the  general   meeting  held in Legion Hall.  Other officers are: First vice-  president, R. M. Inglis; second  vice-president, W. Gray; secretary, E. G. Sergeant; treasurer,  A. C. Burls; assistant secretary,  D. Abrams; sergeant at arms, J.  T. Filley; executive, J. Schutz,  R. Macnicoll, N. McKay, R. E1-'  liot, J: Gordon, R. Fitchett and  Dr H. Inglis.  It was disclosed that the  branch has repaid the $100 which  has been missing from the poppy  fund.  It was also decided to offer  instruction, to the junior auxiliary in woodwork, mechanics,  signalling and photography. Team  sports will also be organized.  Smart Kids are  These Moderns  PORT    MELLON ���Students    of  this day are much smarter  than their fathers were.  Pupils here sent $53.35 to the  school board with the request  the money be spent on buying  them a clock, microscope, record  cabinet and some records.  Sechelt students are also wise  to the ways of school boards.  They sent in $60 for an encyclopedia.  Board Chairman Mrs Jackson  was forced to comment: "I wish  their parents could see their way  to emulate the youngsters. More  power to the students."  School Trustees  Receive Surprise  GIBSONS ��� School trustees received a pleasant surprise  (very few came their way during recent budget discussions)  when the local branch of the  Bank of Montreal assured it  would not collect the 15 percent  exchange rate.  Bank \manager John Theed  pointed out that an exception  would be made in the school  board's behalf. He advised that  special cheques should be made  out marked "Negotiable without  charge."  Secretary Mrs Anne Burns revealed new, "nice, pinky cheques  are now on order."  Canadian Legion  Vote Confidence  SECHELT ��� The Canadian Legion, Branch 140, gave a resounding vote of confidence to  last year's slate of officers by  re-electing them.  They are: President, Harry  Sawyer: secretary for the thirteenth time, W. J. Mayne; treasurer, J. Gowan; first vice-president, Andy Johnston; chaplain,  W. Elliott; sergeant at arms,  Tommy Mutter.  The executive committee consists- bf the following: George  Batchelor, Dr Duncan McColl,  George Wright, S. Brookman, H.  Roberts. Trustees are R. S. Hackett, Mr Burgess and C. Brookman.  Zone officers are H. Sawyer,  C. Brookman, L. Hansen, Jack  Gowan, T. Mutter and W. J.  Mayne.  A zone meeting will be held  March 1 when officers from all  over the Peninsula will be in  attendance and it is hoped that  Batt Maclntyre, MLA, will be  able to come with the Powell  River delegation.  cerned,"   commented   Trustee A.  E. Ritchey.  Mr Leith suggested that large  summer homes could easily be  converted into boarding houses  for what he roughly estimated  as being eight or ten students.  He disclosed that several students are even now continuing  school���mostly repetitive work  ���waiting for this plan to be put  to use rather than stopping  school.  "There is a definite need for  this type of answer to our schooling problem," said Mrs L. S.  Jackson, board chairman.  "I'm certainly glad Mr Leith  brought this up," Colonel Burnett stated. "The department  (Department of Education) will  be behind this. It will pay a portion of the boarding costs, probably in the neighborhood of seven dollars per month, the School  Board, will also meet part of the  cost, which will leave much less  for parents."  Mr Leith pointed out that the  high   cost   of  boarding   students  in Vancouver ^was 'against "rilariy  potential  pupils   here.    Another  point made was the lack of facilities,   both  buildings  and  teachers, for these classes in the Pender Harbour  and Madeira Park  areas.  Present proposals are for the  boarding schools to be located at  Gibsons, near the present high  school. Pupils would attend this  school but board, under strict  discipline, in the suggested  homes.  Mr Leith also gave credit to  school teacher Miss McKay of  Pender Harbour when he intimated she now gives much of  her own time to tutoring pupils  in conjunction with correspondence courses from the Department of Education.  It was suggested that most pupils now in need of the plan will  come from the Pender Harbour  area but it does not mean to exclude pupils from any area desiring higher education.  Heat's On Soon  SCHOOL Board recently decided  to invest $800 in a new furnace  for Gibsons Elementary School.  The old one has been condemned. A. E. Ritchey estimated the  new type would have 25 percent  increased  efficiency.  Bus Drivers Lauded  For Careful Handling  AN APPLICATION will be made by the school board to the pubj  lie works department requesting particular pains be taken  in scraping ice off the Gower Point hill.  ' Discussion at the meeting centred around a letter from o  resident complaining of the school bus driver "Crowding nearly  twenty kids into a seven-passenger car."  It was pointed out this would .     -  be quite a trick as there never  has been that number of children, or even half that amount,  living in the area. But just in  case there should be any question of safety, Mrs L. S. Jackson  proposed the Public Works Department be approached with a  view to making the long hill as  safe as possible for school vehicles.  Trustee  N.   H.   Hough   lauded  the drivers for refusing to take  their   heavy   vehicles   down 3KHAH3S  grade     during     recent     stormy  weather.  "Our children's lives are far  more important than a saving  of a few yards in walking," he  said.  "When these drivers refused  to drive down that slippery hill  they were doing the correct  thing."  0 a  vihoioia Header's Higltt  ������Letters To The Ediiox  IT IS QUITE  difficult to follow  the; declaration from that hotbed of political poltroonery,  Gambier Harbour.

THIRTEENTH, NINETEEN FIFTY  Hoarding ��elMi*$l�� Necessity  ROBERT LEITH is to be congratulated on his  idea for boarding schools on the Peninsula.  Revolutionary it may be for this area but  it is born of necessity. Grade ten, eleven and  twelve pupils must have schooling but there are  no schools to accommodate them. It is obviously  impractical to build high schools all over the  country, so the next best thing is to bring the  pupils to the schools. That is exactly what Mr  Leith has in mind when he proposed making a  survey of homes which normally cater to summer visitors.  His contention���and a correct one, we believe���is that these homes could be readily sold  on the idea of remaining open all year round.  Mr Leith is now making a survey of homes  that would be interested in this type of business.  He already has pupils needing residence.  One of the main problems to be broached is  this ever recurring one of discipline.  There are several instances of private boarding plans which went astray because little Jimmy  or Nellie would not behave once they were out  of the parental vision. Crux of the whole plan  is  discipline. Much discipline.  In England this plan works very well. Rules  in boarding schools are strict but they are good.  A former boarding school student bears the stamp  of his institution with pride and ability. .  Cost is another point which should be borne  in mind and on this point the plan is even better.  It is believed the Department of Education  would provide at least $7 per pupil per month.  Another portion would be borne by the School  Board, while the remainder would be paid by  the parents.  This would work out at less per person than  the' parents are paying now to keep their children  at home. .7  Vancouver or correspondence schools are the  only other answers to the pupil's need for education. The first is expensive and quite often out  of reach of working parents.  The latter idea is fine if there is absolutely  no other hope and even then to get the good out  of a correspondence course it is nearly essential  that the average studerit should have tutoring.  Usually the school teacher does this work, gratis.  This is hardly fair to the school teacher but  definitely not fair to the boy or girl who wants  to get ahead. To the boy or girl who must get  ahead in order to hold his or her own in this  highly  competitive world.  There seems to be only one answer. Boarding schools.  Gibsons has the school. There are several  summer boarding houses which would probably  be glad to remain open all year round. There  is the pressing need ..from the upper end of the  Peninsula.  Our School Board should be congratulated on  its wholehearted support of Mr Leith's idea. It's  a good one and should be pushed to the limit.  Jack Mayne Re-Eleefed  WHEN a MAN has been re-elected to office that  is a key to his value. By these things can a  man be judged.  And so, when a man has been re-elected to  the same office for five terms that man must  be better than good. He must be far above  average. Even more is this brought to the light  when it is known that the office is an elective  one.  What then must be the position of Jack  Mayne of Sechelt? Jack has just been re-elected  secretary of the Canadian Legion branch for the  THIRTEENTH time. This is outstanding when  it is considered that this job is one of responsibility and .trust. ... .,' X ...  p. ..-.-.On the shoulders of the secretajfcy7is���-.��� stjufe^^td%  fall the work of any laggard^iri the unit. Letters  are proposed and. moved and passed and approved by the body general but the secretary is  the man who writes them.  On his shoulders falls the responsibility of  seeing that the books of all the committees are  in order. Believe us, ^ome of these committees,  Legion and others, really forget all they know  about books when it comes time to open them  arid make entries. Many of them fail to even  open them.  The secretary is the man responsible for  these as well as his own. He is responsible for  all the money that passes through the unit's  hands. His position is one of prestige. To be,reelected as often, as Jack has is a great tribute to  the irian's character, alsoTto the acumen of-Legion members. X.  Cub Leader Wanted in Sechelt  MANY AND OF^EN are the duties  which are  thrust upon��community-minded citizens, but  none can wear a prouder badge than that of the  Cub leader.  He is working with the very best that our  nation has to offer. He is. helping to mould the  pliable minds of our greatest asset���our children.  Sechelt at this very mpment is doing the unbelievable, looking for someone to take over the  job of Reading the Wolf Cubs. Why a community  the size and calibre of Sechelt should have any  trouble finding a man or youth who would be  willing  to  sacrifice a little of  his time in this  grandest of jobs is entirely beyond us. But such  is the case.  We do not believe for one moment' that the  leader less Cubs are that way because of callous  indifference. We are sure it is because this grave  lack has never been brought to the notice of the  public.    ... ��� _-.'..  There is no doubt once this gap in our youth  training has been made public that there will be  a short-lived vacancy in the Cubs.  These are the grandest kids in the world.  They are your kids. Surely you would never see  these little tykes stranded?  The Weather  JANUARY 1950 stands out as  being the coldest month recorded for many years. One old  timer���am sure he will not mind  being quoted���Mr Hector McDonald���tells me that the winter of 1917 was similar to this  in his recollection. Veterans of  World War I will remember it  as being particularly severe in  France that winter.  As regards precipitation, Sechelt had 25 Vz inches of snow  which equals 2.55 inches of rain,  and added to the rainfall of 1.09  inches totals 3.64 inches for the  month.  But take a look at Vancouver's  record for the month. Their pre  cipitation (rain and snow) measures 6.48 inches. Quite a difference from here.  Looking at January 1949, the  precipitation at Sechelt was only  .26 inches. This, included IV2  inches of snow, a great difference from January 1950, and we  thought January 1949 pretty  rough.  R.  S. Hackett,  Weather observer.  February 3, 1950.  And now comes an Englishman, assertedly back from the  dead, who  says that life in the  hereafter is like working in a  garden.

Then the secretary,  Mrs W. Haley, read the eorre-  spondence and letter and c&rds  of thanks for cheer parcels to  shut ins.  The annual birthday party  date will be set at the next  meeting. Mrs A.

JOHNSTON  USS Application  Get Approval Here  FINAL meeting of the Wilson  Creek Auxiliary to the VON  was held at the home of Mrs W.  C. McCullough, Monday. In order to be of continued service to  the community, the former members of the Wilson Creek VON  Auxiliary decided to form a new  organization, to be. known as  "The Wilson Creek Ladies'  Club," which will work for the  benefit of the community in general and also lend assistance to  the Elphinstone branch VON.  The well baby clinic conducted  by the health nurse will be carried on as usual under the auspices of the Wilson Creek Ladies' Club. The officers elected for  1950 were as follows:  President, Mrs R. L. Jackson;  vice-president, Mrs T. Turner;  secretary-treasurer, Mrs A. Johnston; convenors, Mrs G. Kraft,  Mrs H. Lucken, Mrs E. Reid.  The first social event of the  newly formed club will be a  whist drive at the home of Mrs  T. Turner, Friday, February 17,  to which everyone is invited.  Next regular meeting of the club  will be held at the home of Mrs  E. Woodward, March 6. A cordial invitation is extended to all  ladies of the district to join the  organization.  After three weeks' shutdown  due to weather conditions, Burns  her sister, Mrs W. McKissock,  is Mrs Edgar Lindgren of Vancouver.  GIBSONS ��� It seems very unlikely that any opposition to  the request made by Union  Steamships for a subsidy on its  Howe Sound runs will come  from the Peninsula.  Spokesmen for the various  boards of trade here, are of the  opinion that if the company can  satisfy the federal authorities a  subsidy is needed for continuation of the present winter schedules, it would be poor policy on  their part to object.  Plans are now being made by  the Gibsons Board of Trade 'to  have a round table conference  with the other boards to survey  the whole question, raised with  & Jackson sawmill resumed full  operation again last Wednesday.

MARY Ann Jeffries, one  of five Indian women expert  basket makers, is ill in bed. She  is well known here but has also  a wide reputation among tourists of all races. Her baskets are  always well received. This art  of"making baskets seems to be  fading out among our people.  There are still a great number  of baskets made but the old time  expert is dying out and giving  way to more production methods.  Remember hero George Craigan who crawled into a house  which was aflame from door to  chimney, to rescue his grandchildren? Well, it has been decided to replace the house. The  Indian Department has given  approval to the  expenditure.  Other members of the tribe  who received the go-ahead in  housing are Nelson Moody, Alfred August, Kristian Julian,  Fitz Louie  and Cyrpian August.  Some people think that because the Indian is the ward of  the government, he gets everything for nothing. This is not  right. Here is the way that building houses is paid for.  The Indian council digs into  its tribe funds and pays for part  of the expenses, while the federal government gives anywhere  between $500 and $1000 for each  unit built.  The owner has to pay the rest  which is nearly always more  than half the cost of the house.  Value of the new homes to be  built will be approximately  $3500. Another thing: the home  owner has to furnish the house  himself. So you can see that just  being a ward is not enough. It  still costs us lots of money and  that money is being spent in  Sechelt which in turn helps the  community. What helps the district has to help us but what  helps us also helps the district  in which we live. Indian and  white man are all mixed up in  the same economy.  E. Parr Pearson and E.' En-  right met with the Indian council to discuss access to their  water intake. Both these gentlemen represent the Union Estates. There seems to have been  trouble about getting up to their  intake. This is being attended to  by our council. It is hardly expected that trouble will come  from it.  I have received a lot of favorable comment about this column  from both Indian and white.  They say it can be a means for  us to meet on a common ground.  One question- that was asked  is about letters to this column.  I would very much like to get  letters from anyone who would  like to know anything about the  Indians here. If I can't answer it  there are men and women in the  tribe who  certainly can.  March of Dimes  EXTENSION of the "1950 Canadian March of Dimes" till the  end of February was announced  last week by Dr C. R. Hallman,  provincial  chairman.  Dr Hallman said that the extension of the campaign, sponsored in B.C. by the Kinsmen  Clubs, was authorized by the national executive directors "owing to the extremely bad weather  which has prevailed throughout  Canada  during January."  The British Columbia objective  is $75,000.  In most B.C. centres, the campaign has dragged owing to the  unusual weather which has  brought added responsibilities to  householders. The only point to  send in a contribution has been  Langley Prairie which forwarded a cheque for $180. Contributions received since have brought  this amount up beyond the $200  mark.  Mission reported that on the  day of the worst storms donations totalling oyer $94 had been  received.  Aim of the Canadian Foundation for Poliomyelitis is to find  ways of preventing the disease  and so eliminate suffering and  the necessity for cure. Treatment, cure, equipment and rehabilitation will also receive  funds from the nation-wide campaign.  Junior Red Cross members  have sent nearly $20,000 worth  of clothing to children in British  war nurseries alone.  �����    �����  H^^��P7^5&tTi     >*p"* ** *  **"��� m  ft ?  ,"<������  Ike PIONEER Power Chain Saw  The Pioneer is the answer to the great demand for a one-man power taw '  which will give continuous reliable service under all working condition*.

THREE  CERTIFICATES  Certificates of competency are  obtainable in three classes: certificate "A" for persons engaged  in all types of electrical work;  certificate "B" for installations  not exceeding 600 amperes and  750 volts; and certificate "C" for  installations in private residences  not exceeding 100 amperes at  300 volts single phase power.  Applicants who have been engaged in the electrical contracting business for a continuous  period of two years and who apply for a certificate of competency within 60 days of the date  on which the regulations become  operative, will not be required  to pass an examination.  SATISFY  BOARD  All others, however, must satisfy a five-man board of examiners to be set up under the  regulations that they are competent to undertake electrical  work. Examinations will involve  written papers and an inspection  of work done by the applicant.  Permits will be issued only  to persons holding certificates  of competency, except in cases  where the applicant is doing the  work on his own premises.  Fees for examinations for certificates of competency will be  class "A," $20; class "B" $15; and  ���class "C" $10. In addition the annual fees for certificates will be:  class "A" $25; class "B" $12.50;  and class  "C" $5.  In addition a scale of fees is  established for the issuance of  permits, ranging from $7.50 for  a panel over 750 volts to $1 for  electric range and hot water  heating installations. Such  charges shall cover the cost of  inspecting the work.

Following a blunt ultimatum  from Deputy Minister of Municipalities B. C. Bracewell that he  would rescind the letters patent  and reissue them with the inclusion of two more districts,  commissioners decided to get legal advice.  Next move came recently from  R. C. MacDonald, minister of  municipalities, who reiterated his  deputy's threat and asked what  the commissioner was going to  do about it.  Municipal Clerk Robert Burns  will advise the minister that the  whole question is under advisement. "We are not going to be  railroaded into anything," growled commission chairman James  Drummond.  St Aidan's  Church Meeting  ROBERTS CREEK ���Election of  officers took place at the fourteenth   annual  meeting    of    St  Aidan's Church. They were:  Vicars warden, F. W. Downes;  people's warden, G. Bloor; delegate to the Synod, G. Bloor; alternate delegates, C. Shepheard  and H. Smith.  The church committee will  consist of the above officers and  Mrs H. G.

Votes of thanks were tendered  to all officers and Mrs Harbord  for her fine work on the organ.  The most effective step yet taken to meet the growing  demand for efficient, cost-lowering building methods  is the development by the B.C. Coast Lumber  Industry of the solid cedar system of construction.  Erection of two test houses in Vancouver, built to  Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation standard  floor plan specifications, proves that home building  costs can be cut by as much as 16.6% when solid  cedar construction methods are employed.  *This development gives needy home seekers throughout Canada definite assistance.

People ring up and tell us  their furnace is on the hummer. They know when they call  LAURIE SPECK that all they have to say is, 'Hey, Laurie,  something's wrong with my furnace. Fix it, will you?' They  don't say, 'Can you fix it?' They know for sure we can.  That's why the red truck is seen up and down the Peninsula.  Everybody knows us. Everybody relies on us. Why shouldn't  they? We've probably fixed their neighbor's stove or something, and.word travels in this country. Ask Mrs. Winn at  the telegraph office.
