After my last visit there and  feeing Bill Peiper coming  j through the woods like he was  feome sort of Susquatch, beard  find all, > I came home and borrowed Pete's sixgun. Everybody's  feot a beard up in that country.  W Royal Murdock hasn't but I  |orgot to ask how come. He probably has a good reason, it would  $uite probably get caught in the  'aeon slicer or something.  t Bob Leith is one of the beard-  fess ones up there.. He was suggesting . that  a    little    publicity  fcould help so there he goes. Jok-  %ig  aside,- Bob  is   a  reasonable  |)ker but what he is doing up  mere with all those Sam McGees  jj. don't know.  'X.I  was asking the two people  jjp read my column    if    they  raid recall reading my supposed  \j>ke about the teacher at Silver  [ands  whom  I  expected to  see  .taring out of her Lower Slabov-  ;n "hall of learning, carrying a  jin under her arm.  They both  id they had and so did Mrs A.  ..Ritchey.'  She   introduced   ine  J the lady in question. Then, the  fext  thing  I  hear   is   the   high  ^commendations flying all over  _e place about this same lady.  I'eems  one of the  moguls from  ,|e Department of Education had  landered into her school, he had  |obably been  hunting  the  lost  r|dian   Midden,   and   this   same  fian came away,simply amazed  B the fine work she was doing  id the tremendous job she had  e with the' library.  .. likeXto   hear  about; a  good  ���rkmari- this lady seemingly "is  .e   of the   tops.

Why, I don't  ifcveh know him!"'  reen  Mrs Jackson Makes Statement  WILSON CREEK-���"I am very glad the by-law passed, not alone  for the sake of winning but for the children who are so  desperately in need of schools."  In such manner did Mrs L. S. Jackson, president of School  Board District 46, greet passage of the by-law. "There is one  thing I am sorry for," she said, "that is the way that Sechelt  and Wilson Creek let me down.  "I would like to take this opportunity to thank Col J. N.  Burnett for the fine way in which he helped, also Mr Humphries  for his co-operation. E would also like to say 'thank you' to all  ratepayers who voted for the by-law and to the many friends'  who gave so generously of their time and labor to assure that  our children^hall now get their teaching in proper schools."  GIBSONS���Schools for the Peninsula and Howe Sound Islands  have been virtually assured by virtue of a 67 percent majority on the School Bylaw vote, Thursday.  A 30 day waiting period is required by law before actual  negotiations on construction of the schools can start.           There seems to be little chance  of an upset, following unqualified approval from Francis  Drage, JP. He it was who defeated, in the law courts, the bylaw of 1949. After having fought  the $282,000 by-law since its in-  . ception early this spring, the  Gambier man made a swing on  the   by-law's   side   following   his  Roads  Stay  *>&  Victoria Government  Good Says Maclntyre  GIBSONS���B.C. seems to be leading the world in at least one  respect.  "Batt" Maclntyre, MLA, speaking at a public meeting and  outlining his views of the last session of parliament, reported  that following a world wide survey which included every state  of the union and Scandinavian countries, it was shown B.C. led  all in its contribution to old age pensions.     ....  It also leads the United States  in social legislation. X- -���-,,'<�����'-  r -,,.Mr Maclntyre -.pointed;,, this ;s,as-  beirig   the   clue   to   the ^government's progressive  attitude;.    He  contended  the welding  of "v Con  servatism and Liberalism in Victoria was a sound and solid  means of government. He also  came out flat-footed an favor of a  contributory old-age pension system. "There would then be no  taint of charity attached to it."  He predicted it would come some  day in the near future.  In discussing the hospital act  (he led the rebellion which saw  the $36 per year limit "clause inserted in the amendment to the  amendment), he revealed the act  holds a clause which would allow the government to set up a  system whereby a patient would  have his expenses paid for the  first seven days in hospital. The  next seven would have to be paid  Sincerity  At Least  GAMBIER Island���Lack of interest or sincerity can never  be the charge levelled at B. M.  "Batt" Maclntyre by any of  his very few opponents.  Speaking at a public meeting here, he pointed out that  McKenzie riding was more  than 450 miles long with a  shore line of 7,500 miles. "I  intend to call on every village  and settlement in the whole  area."   he  said.   "I   expect  to  **^*"V       l-��^-    ��    ^-J.* ����    W V--VI       **.��_����-- VW����� j^p^,--., 1   - ,  for by the patient then the gov- cover oil the major camps  in  ernment  would  take  over   pay- the area as well."  ments from there on. -r-i -~     ���_.  tt        _.-._.__      t-      t        uX The   session  is  He predicted such>a clause had  "one chance. in 90 of being enforced."  Nearly $1 and three-quarter  millions annually will be saved  by conversion of the B.C. Police  to the RCMP, he said. Security  also appeared in the picture.  In. discussing public projects  and the limited amount of money, the popular MLA stated that  20 percent of the total tax income for the province was spent  on the health and welfare of its  people ($22,314.00).  Village Council  Meeting Report  CORRESPONDENCE from W^ter  Rights branch informed Council, that it will have no trouble  increasing the amount of water  on water shed property. From  100,000 gallons a day now in use,  it will be stepped up to 170,000  a day as soon as necessary. There  is plenty of water, and when  new pipe is in, there should be  no trouble as far as water shortage is concerned.  Tenders will be called in two  papers for the fire hall supplies  to be delivered June 5.  A by-law. regulating sub-divisions in Gibsons village was  given first reading, this by-law  .will assure village in prospective  sub-divisions that there will be  road allowances, and proper en-  only two  months long, he indicated, but  pointed out that his visits as  outlined above would take up  much more of his time. Transportation is also a major consideration in such a riding. He  had to buy a boat in order to  coyer it with any degree of  fairness.  GIBSONS ��� "Go home to your  people and tell them we will  not surface your highways or do  any major repairs on them. You"  will have to wait until we have  completed the main roads. When  we have completed the roads we  have now started we will take  the eight cents gas tax and earmark it for secondary roads."  And so was sounded the death  knell for major road repairs for  this peninsula. The man who uttered them was Public Works  Minister E. C. Carson, speaking  on the floor of the house during  last session.  "There is nothing I can do  about it now," said B. M. Maclntyre, reporting on his first sitting as MLA for this-riding.  "I am inclined to agree with  the government in its attitude toward doing first things first," he  said. In answering a question re  local roads, Mr Maclntyre pointed iput the government was in'.the  position of having to deny many  needy road projects in order to  bring system to its public works.  fie drew a parallel between the  state of Washington and B.C. in  trying to clarify the position of  Victoria.  "B.C.," he said, "has an estimated population of . 1,114,000  while Washington has 10,000,000.  B.C. has 24,000 miles of road to  build compared to our neighbour's 2400."  This province draws its' road  construction money from the  eight cents gas sales tax only. It  does not get any money from the  general fund.  POOL HALL     ���  AT SECHELT  SECHELT ��� Two local young  men, Ernie Barker and Mickey  Coe are taking a whirl at recreation. Only this is the type they  hope will pay off.  A new pool room has been installed over the new Standard  Oil garage. Open to all comers  (subject to minimum   age  laws)  winning a many point program.  By virtue of the time lapse  between this paper's deadline  and the actual printing, the following breakdown is from preliminary results only. At the  time, Britain River with its very  few votes had not been heard  from.  Bowen Island, Yes 16, No 44;  Gambier Island, Yes 25, No 15;  Port Mellon, Yes 3, No 3; Gibsons Yes 330, No 124; Roberts  Creek, Yes 111, No 59; Wilson  Creek, Yes 40, No 38; Sechelt,  Yes 79, No 71; Halfmoon Bay,  Yes 21, No 19; Silver Sands, Yes  12, No 3; Kleindale, Yes 15; Irvine's Landing, Yes 17-, No 6; Pender Harbour, Yes 94, No 12; Nelson Island, Yes 13, No 1; Egmont, Yes 26; Vancouver Bay,  Yes 3; Deserted Bay, Yes 5. Out  of the total 1205 votes cast, 810  voted Yes, while 395 registered  No.  Drage Goes To  Bat With Paper  GIBSONS ��� In a public statement made recently, Francis  Drage, JP, takes exception to a  local paper's press reports of his  about face on the by-law question.  The Gambier man wishes to  make public that his attitude was  not, as reported, an apology to  the School Board or any of its  members.  "I never apologized to anyone  when I supported the by-law,"  he said, "this report is entirely  erroneous and of slighting character, and unless a full retraction  is made I will take recourse in  the law."  "I," he continued, "supported  the by-law following approval  of certain points. There was no  apology made,  or intended."  the pool room is expected to fill  a need in the community. It is  hoped to add more tables in the  near future while plans are now  well under way for further expansion which will include bowling alleys complete with services.  New Ball Team Now  Theed Heads        Nearly Completed  Our Kinsmen  GIBSONS ��� John Theed, popular .local bank manager was  elected president of the Kinsmen Club at a recent meeting in  Hunter's Guest House.

Next Village Council meeting  will be May 23rd, regular meeting on the 24th, due to Holiday,  will be set back one day.  Sub-division on the Thorburn  garage property and lease to Reg  Jackson for five years approved  by the Council.  GIBSONS���Something new has been added in the lo��al sporting  world.  Owing to the senior ball team being filled up, many younger ballplayers found themselves in the position of being highly  capable of playing ball but no team. The result of this thought  is now a full sized team with standing room only on the sidelines.  Sponsored and "organized    by ~~~~~~  Father E. O'Dwyer, the new unit  will consist of players from the  following: Barry Stewart, Ted  Parnwell, Jack Norris, Bill Pye,  Rudy Andrews, Earl King, Jack  Nestman, Mouris Hostlin, Bill  McGivern, Mike Poole, Norman  Peterson, Don Graham, Denis  Lowe, Ron Godfrey, Chuck Robinson, and Murray King.  It was pointed out by Father  O'Dwyer that ...this list does-not  eliminate anyone from -trying but ___  for the team. It is made up <3_JilAH3S  pletely on merit.  Uniforms have already arrived,  Royal Blue with a white stripe.  The team will be known as Gibsons CYO.  - Practises are arranged for  Tuesdays and Fridays.  Jack Nestman is chairman of  the new group, while Barry Stewart and Rudy Andrews will share  the chore of secretary and treasurer respectively. Doug Davis  is official scorer for the year.  - ^ ry^'yyyy. x/:0 g ESSE  By "ARIES'  WE NOTICE that the Parish Hall  adjacent to  St Hilda's  Church  is coming along very well.  The house being built for Father O'Dwyer here is almost finished. It's nice to see these buildings going up, shows there must  be a future here after all. Especially when we see nice homes  like those of Mr and Mrs Norman Haslett in the new Sub Division and Mr and Mrs W. Youngson with a new one just round  the bend from the Anglican  Church and many other little  places going up also and as we  are almost sure the school by-law  will go through there is not so  much talk now of people leaving.

Citizens of the Sechelt Peninsula and Howe  Sound Islands must feel proud of their contribution to posterity. They must feel very warm in  their vote of faith and assurance for, and in, our  youth.  There seems to be no fear anywhere that this  by-law was not fought clearly and legally. Following the 30-day waiting period, the School  Board, - who are to be again congratulated, and  the Department of Education can now get down  to the hard grind of cement mixing and board  nailing. '  It will be many months before schools crop,  up throughout the Peninsula. It will be many long  days and weary weeks before teachers and pupils  alike can take their rightful place in well lit, well  ventilated buildings.

Progress and the telephone  companies  seem  to have passed by Gambier Island. And., the island--  ers, some of them, have found themselves in the  wash  of advancement.  At the recent meeting of B. M. "Batt" Maclntyre, question of the telephone line to West Bay  came up again. It seems residents in that area are  without means of communication with the outside. During the winter this can be dangerous. It  has already proved fatal in one reported case. We  are in entire sympathy with those people who  find themselves without a telephone. We entirely  agree someone or somebody should do something  about it. But ...  Let's look at this picture fairly and squarely.  We have a few, very few, residents in an isolated  area who are in need of telephones. We have several miles of trail along which the telephone  would normally go. We have a dearth of subscribers for the outlay. In other words who pays for  this service? Certainly not the few who are attached to the line.  The Church Camp applied for a telephone  but only for three months of the year. Residents  "blocked this move", as it would jeopardize their  own chances of getting a year-round line. This  was quite probably the first short-sighted move.  We suggest residents should have approved  wholeheartedly of the Camp's three-month plan  and then followed through by showing the government or the B.C. Telephone just how little it  would cost to put in a permanent line over and  character.   These   new. buildings   should   mouldy  well.    ��� ���:  We firmly believe there should be changes in;  our curriculums. We do not think our children*,  are getting the best in education. We contend/  there are too many off-the-beam subjects or, to|  put it bluntly; wasie oi school time. But.we do<:  not blame our school staffs for this, now we can-f  not blame our schools.   _ 0.  What will happen is that pupils will get then  most out of what they are offered. Teachers wil'_  be able to offer the most under their rules ant  regulations. That is far more  than the childrer  were getting.  Your "Yes" vote is a step in the right direct  tion. That was the first step   in. making   this  better world in whicii to live.  The kids are grateful.  59  above cost of the proposed summer line.  Mistake number one.  Mistake number two rests again on the samfi  shoulders. Residents are trying to get'"Batt" anj  James Sinclair to have the government put in  line.  In the meantime they are cut off and wi|  remain cut off unless they wake up to some sir  nle truths.  Go after the government to put in a telephoi  service  to   these  isolated  areas.   Nothing  wro||  with that, but don't sit back and say, "it's up  the government."  Do something yourselves.  There must be hundreds of war surplus an  phones in this country or the States.' Get one  them. Get some wire, there are miles of it,. ai  ���string up a purely bush telephone.    ..  Sure, the trees will fall on it. When it rai*  the voices will sound miles away. But when, hj  cold and still you have communication. Wh{  weather conditions are against you, you still haj  communication. It would never do for just geij  eral gabbing but then' that is not for what it J  intended. -  Francis Drage is a go getter. Enlist him |  trying to raise an army phone. Enlist some of t'F  clubs around the Peninsula for putting up t^  wire. The cost should be negligible and the he|  in a telephone, when trouble descends, would ofj  set any such trifle.  Go  after the government, but in the me  time try and help yourselves.

Addressing constituents here,  B. M. Maclntyre. MLA, held out  little hope for early construction  of a hospital here. The Hamilton  report, (the report which governs ���  the government's attitude to hospitals as does the Cameron report with the schools) has decreed a clinic be built at Sechelt.  He pointed out there was just a  "Chinaman's chance" of the government changing its mind on  this important matter.  In dealing with hospitals, Mr  Maclntyre recognized the need  for better hospital facilities but  warned that, despite his wanting  and willingness to do what his  constituents wished in the matter, he would be very much  handicapped by the attitude of  the government in following the  Hamilton survey.  In a meeting at Gambier Island, Francis Drage, JP, urged  the member to "do his very utmost to have a hospital built in  the vicinity of Gibsons in order  to serve the people of the islands."  The   government  of B.C.  will  pay one-third of construction  costs, provided the Hamilton report had previously approved of  the location, the federal government  will contribute $1,000 per  bed while the remainder has to  be raised by the area or municipality in question.    .  "It is up to the local people to  make the first move," said Maclntyre. .     / ���  For  Summei  Casuals  Fleetfoot  You save with top  quality and comfort  i n these smart,  modern stylings.  .

"Naturally I am very pleased  that children will now get proper  education. It is a 'must' for all,  and I'm glad to see Bowen Island  will be assured of a high school  curriculum  in their  own  school.  "I was glad to see that Gambier Island approved my actions  by virtue of a resounding majority vote in favor. I would like to  congratulate Col" J. N. Burnett  and Returning Officer Thomas  Humphries on a very, well run  ballot. It lived up to the best  tradition of free voting. Unquestionably the procedure I advocated will be adopted in other school  areas.  The school board now has its  chance. I'm sure they will take it  and live up to their obligations  to both children and taxpayers.  I particularly refer to veteran  and old age pensioners and other  low income  groups.

"I hold very slim hopes  for the two which propose Horseshoe Bay as a terminal. But there  could be a possibility of the company which desires to " end at  Vancouver." Approaches have already been made to the Public  Utilities   Commission,  he hinted.  When asked to identify the  concerns he -refused, saying,  "This thing is still in the very  early stages. None of the people  involved wish to have their  identity disclosed." He reported  there quite probably would be  opposition to the ideal from "local interests."  "Anyone wishing to contact  these firms could do so through  me," he said. "I'd be quite willing to act as a 'go between'."

About 12,000 of them are employed by Imperial. Sprue search for new  oil fields; some move oil from producing fields to refineries where  others make it into Esso and hundreds of other useful products;, still  others see to it that these are on hand wherever you want them.  Then there are almost 10,000 independent business men who, as  Imperial dealers, supply you with our products.  And-there are the many thousands of people who derive part of their  livelihood from making and transporting the things that Imperial uses  in its operations. Last year we bought equipment and supplies from  more than 3,000 Canadian firms.  But those are not all.  About 70,000 Canadian residents are shareholders in Imperial or  owners of Imperial bonds.  And there are more thousands who have an investment in Imperial  through their bank deposits or their insurance policies, because a  number of Canada's banks and insurance companies have put some  of their clients' money to work to help us do our job.
