George Paulin looks on.  Water Commissioner James Hall should resign his post ot  (he village commission.  He should do so now, before he can do more unwitting and  |areless harm to our-village.,-'  Here, is the record.        ���  if     He suggested the cannery pipe could last for a long time yet  Ind all it needed was patching.  ||     More than 20 years old, .the, cannery, wooden pipe is silted  Mb nearly 50 percent of its capacity. It feeds a pipe larger than  ftself y..thsreby., creato  Bow ��� it's leaking'inmany unknown places. It is just sufficient  % supply the cannery. Having prior rights, it comes before the  [jjillage.  ' T- The*Commissioner's handling of the whole water situation  ,. ias so bungled -' the village clerk took over and wi\hin four  If leeks (has a complete plan with costs and values laid before the  !$e. commission.  ' [    Suggestion to have Engineer Conway elucidate on his plan  *i Thursday was forced out of Mrs. Nestman and Commissioner  Jnderson following the water commissioner's plea that he still  ||id a lot to clarify in the West Vancouver engineer's plan.  We predict we shall see the plan go into the bylaw stage  ithin a few days, with or without sanction from the water com-  issioner."  The village has probably lost and certainly stands to lose,  Ifioney because Commissioner Hall persists in passing the buck  |j> his men. He has consistently neglected to have reports of water  Slfmnections made to the village clerk. Two water caretakers have  rade connections for the last several months-no notification has  jeen made to the village clerk. And then the water commissioner  las the nerve to blame his staff.  \   If Mr. Hall insists that he is not responsible for his care-  kers, then we suggest the caretakers move into Mr. Hall's seat  the commission.  1|<    Leaks have been apparent  on the main water line along  Marine Drive. These leaks have been noticed for several months.  % is suspected the valuable water is escaping in at least two  llaces. Mr. Hall was Requested -several times - to have these  pings attended vto.  1   - Faced by a p'oint blank question, Tuesday, he reported that  |is men were all working on the pump house property, yet, every  jogger in the countrys-;is out of work. There.are several dozen  Ivithin a five mile radiu%;of this village who would have jumped  tit' the chance of finding the leaks and fixing them.  I      The leaks' still go on 'and the miain valve opposite Bal's  iblbck, out of order for months; is still leaking and wasting water  T��md making a menace of itself.  Thie fact that the water at the pumphouse,^ which may be  Idesperately needed yet'j is not fit for human consumption can be  laid at Mr. Hall's door. He had been previously ordered to protect  jthe springs until he had at least put a fence around the area. The  jfwater is still not fit for human consumption. '  ?' A $50,000 water bylaw faces the village this fall. Does any-  lone believe for one-minute that the village will trust, such a pro-  Jgram in the hands of a man as incompetent and with such utter  ['disregard for public welfare? ,.  f       To assure passage- of the water bylaw and for the wellbein g  ;of Gibsons future - Mr. James Hall, water commissioner for the  Village   of- Gibsons  should [resign - now '- and   without   any  equivocation or hesitation.  His staying on the Village Commission is a sure way of non.  passage of the bylaw. We say that in all sincerity and without  thought of trying to hammer home a point. It is absolutely imperative that we have a new water commissioner.  'If we don't we shall have a continuation, next year, of/the  | horrible water mess that we now have.  Batt Sets High  Praise From Gates  The Honorable John Gates,  Minister of labour, was loud  in his praise of B. M. Maclntyre, M.L.A., when he spoke  at' a meeting of notables during  Ferry   Day   celebrations.  "He is a great man," Capt.  Cates said. "He 'has vision and  is a true Canadian. He works  hard for the constituency and  is well thought of in Victoria.''  Recalling his early days as  a tug boat captain in the west'  Howe Sound region,-Captain  Cates1 gave a brief outline of  the area's history and ended  by saying. "I would like to  stay here myself."  "F" stands for fun, frolic,  and more  were in abundance,  loaded   with   celebrities, made  approximately noon.  Daryl Smith Wins  Many Forest Badges  HALFMOON BAY.��� Daryl  Smith of Halfmoon Bay has  returned from the Junior  Forest Warden, training camp  in West Vancouver, where he  received an eight-day course  in conservation.  The tests he successfully  passed, and the badges he won  are the following: swimming,  first aid, fire fighting, tree  identification, surveying and  conservation.  frivolity, and friendship.

John Cameron, first aid man  for Port Mellon, received high  praise from R.C.M.P. for the  "very good work," done by  him in helping revive those  saved and for working more  than two hours on Mrs. O'Neil  in a vain effort to save her  life.  Jack Campbell, called to the  scene of the accident, found  Mrs. O'Neil's body.  *No trace has yet been* found  of Farrel's body.  "The boat seemed to just  sink without cause," one ��� of  the victims said. "We never  hit anything. She just started  to go down and first thing we  knew we were in the water."  Little Pat Murray  Dies in San Jose  One of Gibsons most popular  pupils, 14 year old Patricia  Merral Murray, who died in  San Jose, California, August  10, was buried in Vancouver,  Wednesday.  Daughter of Mr. and Mrs.  Thomas P. Murray, Pat was  taken to San Jose suffering  from a cerebral injury. She is  survived by her brother,  jThomais, her grandparents,  Mr. and Mrs. M. Osborne,  Gibsons, and William Murray,  Vancouver.  Cremation took place at Nun  and Thompson Funeral Parlours.  Commission Was  Busy Tuesday  The Rocky Road, long a  headache to road commissioners- of Gibsons, will be immediately closed off to vehicular  traffic. ,  Council, Tuesday, decided to  stop all traffic on the unsafe  highway. A proper path will  be cleared in order to allow  use for pedestrians only.  Plans are now being surveyed by Road Commissioner  William Skellett. Avith a view  to erect either a flume or culvert in order to carry off the  excessive flow of winter water.  Commissioner Anderson will  try to have the road utilized  in some fashion to enhance the  view.  More than $2,600 has found  its way into- village coffers;  portion of the village's quota  of motor vehicle licenses, forwarded from  Victoria.  Two more applications for  re-zoning of property from  residential to business and  residential were received by  commissioners. Gordon Bryant  and Mrs. A. MeNab . have  applied for re-zoning following application for same by  C. P. Smith on property next  to the home of Dr H. Inglis.  Dr Inglis filed a letter of  protest to the Smith application,, claiming loss of property  value and pointing out the  medical residence was . not  truly a business property.  Commission ers kicked  around argument on the subject but stayed clear of any  decision until following public  hearing and reading of bylaw.  Commissioner J. Hall report-  First ear on board was that  of John Klein, accompanied  by Mrs. Klein and T. R.  Chappie, sales representative  for Standard Oil. ���  Two Black Ball Ferry test  cars  tried   out the  slips first.  First ticket bought on the  new service was that acquired  by this paper from Company  President Colonel George  Paulin and Manager George  Frith.  First run was made under  command of Captain Thomas  Campbell.  Standing guard as the Quillayute   docked   were   two   red  <!^ uniformed     Royal    Canadian  Mounted  Police.  Schojbi   children,   Arranged  on the wharf sang the national.  ��� anthem while passengers stood  at attention.  The long, white ribbon  guarding entrance to the  wharf, was cut by one of Gibsons first residents, C. Chuck  Winegarden.  vWefeomin-g: ^add^esse: was  made by . Commission Chair-  many Mrs. E, Nestman, speaking on behalf of the Village  and residents of the Sechelt'  Peninsula.  ' Sandy Sanderson drove the  first car off the 48 car ferry,  followed by Don MacLeod,,  Vancouver Daily Province  staff photographer and Alderman Halford Wilson, representing the City of Vancouver.  The car parade was led off  the wharf by Powell River  Pipe Band, the Legion Auxiliary Bugle Band and the Vancouver Firemen Brass Band.  Harry Greenwood is  Called in Death  PENDER  HARBOUR,  ���  Harry    Greenwood,    73,    who1  died   Monday   in    St.   Mary's  Hospital,  was   buried   in   Sea-  view  Cemetery,  today.  The former lighthouse keeper and veteran sailing skipper  had been ailing for some time.  Well known around the village  of Gibsons, he was foreman in  charge of construction of St.  Mary's Church in that village.  He leaves to mourn, his wife  in Gibsons.  Requiem matss was said by  Father E. O'Dwyer at 10 this  morning.  Graham Funeral Home was  in   charge   of  arrangements,  ea   the  pump   house  property  renovations were coming along,  "well."  Village fathers are steering  clear of a new traffic bylaw  until a clearer picture arises  following the car ferry.

Advertising rates may be had upon application to The Coast News,  Gibsons B.C.  er mm  Now that, the ferry is a thing of the present and not just a  dream in our future, may we be so bold as to point out to Mr.  E.C. Carson, minister of public works that if he should find extra  money in his highway purse would he please look at our so called  highways before granting to other communities.  We would remind the honorable member that tourists are  the third largest source of revenue for this province. This year's  returns is up approximately 15 percent from the figures of last  year. ' #  Tourists  depend   on  roads.  We  have  the  greatest  tourist  attractions in the wide, long expanse of British Columbia. We  have many tourists coming past our doors. We have very little in.  .the way of roads to entice them back.  If tourists are the third greatest means of revenue and we  have the west's greatest scenery and most enticing country, is  it not reasonable to think we should have a fair portion of road  money?  Mr. Carson, has every reason, in the world to reconsider*the  .allocation usually granted this area. We cannot do our full share  of increasing the tourist dollar without roads.  Unlike other portions of B.C., we have everything for tourists  in the. line of the unexpected beauty 'spots and the grandeur.  We need reads.  One of our big worries is that we are going to need them  ���.sooner than we, or. the Province of B.C. thought.  Our complete road system should be reconsidered - and now.  Part of the Past  Ferry day has come and gone and with it one of the most  cooperative days in the history of Gibsons.  As is always the case in such instances, there were many who  turned not one hand toward helping. Strong and vociferous  members of the Board of Trade were prominent by their absence.  And still, cooperation stood out -as one of .the finest thifigs  in a day of fine things.  To C.P. Ballentine and his committee of Jack Marshall and  C. Lock Knowles, goes much credit for the successful festivities.  To Bai goes most of the credit, without his drive, ferry  'day could not have been such a success.  To the men who so generously gave of their time and talent  in erecting the Welcome sign goes much credit and the'grateful  thanks of this community.  The flags and buntings which made gay our streets and  wharf will bo kept for future   occasions.  Little was wasted and much was enjoyed. To the men who  were so willing to thrill the crowds witih their deeds of skill and  daring goes our appreciation.  Gibsons Ferry Day ha? gone, but it will long remain as a  mark for future celebrations. We predict it will be many a long  year before such'will be seen again in this locality.  Like the moth, we have had our day. It was good for everyone. ^Everyone is glad, tired, happy and grateful.  Halfmoon Bay  BY Mrs K.

Some, individuals directly involved, pensioners themselves or persons working to  help the aged and handicapped  have intimate knowledge of  glaring examples of iniquities.  But where does the basic  wrong exist? At what point  has our governmental thinking  on pension planning gone astray?     !  When    veterans'    organizations     made     representations  before the War Veterans Committee   at   Ottawa  they   were  faced with an insurmountable  problem:   the   committee   was  empowered to discuss, and accept   jor   reject,    one   specific  piece  of legislation -��� the new  Unemployability     Supplement.  And  that was all. The orders  of referanee of the committee  were so narrow that in order  to consider any other phase of  war   pensions   it   would  have  been necessary to  obtain permission   from    the   House   of  Commons to change the limits  of the agenda.  Veterans'' groups had |no  quarrel with the principle of  aiding the most seriously handicapped and unemployable  pensioners with whatever  money is available. They DID  protest the apparanjt, substitution of this 2 million dollar  supplement for what is most  urgently needed, a raise in  basic pensions.  I say "apparant. substitution," for | government men  insist that the supplement does  not necessarily close the door  to future pension raises. However, itTis" significant'that the  Veterans Affairs Minister, Mr.  Hughes. Lapointe, stated publicly (and his words are recorded in the Ottawa Citizen)  to the effect that though a dis-  bility pension- was once .considered as a "substitute for a  pay envelope", now a better  conception, .is that it is to com  ployed.. But how gainfully employed ... fully, partially, casually? The question of casual  earnings is one of individual"  administrations which varies  from place to place, and pretty  well has to be treated for individual cases. A man earning  we'll say 20 dollars a month  stoking furnaces ��� (might not  be considered unemployable  enough to drjiw' the new 'Supplement, but would be entitled  W.V.A.  But a steady job of any kind  disqualifies the pensioner from  either scheme. Yet there is no  assurance that the working  pensioner is earning a liveable  income. Whether he is nr not,  he is competing against able  bodied individuals and must  pensate the recipient for the constantly try that much  loss of ability to  do anything     harder (to maintain   his posi-  ss'iSn??

The Minister seems to be  here suggesting that if a man  learns to-overcome his handicap and is able to perform as  efficiently as one not disabled  then he has less need for a  pension for his living. This  train of thought introduces the  element of need into pensions  allocation. And the government  has extended the premise, introducing a kind of means test  without calling it that, to pay  a living only to those high disability pensioner^ [who are  about to starve ��a nominal  amount of assistance.  But what about [all other  pensioners? The government  relies on statistics showing  that they  are   gainfully   em-  tion.  And what has been done to  this man's pension, be it 6  dollars or 60 and more? It has  been reduced. War pensions  today are worth 30 per "cent  less than when they were first'  established . . . and in comparison with a rising Canadian  standard of living have, decreased in true value considerably more.  The drop in money values of  pensions is, of course, caused  by the cost of living. The 100  dollars ,a month pension in  1939 should ��� by the government 's own set of statistics ���  be 182 dollars now.

"When that 25 per cent  increase was obtained the cost  of living index stood at 150.  Veterans were assured that  instead of a further rise, the  index would |soon drop back  to 140, at which point there  would be some reality to the  pension payment of 125 dollars.. But the index has risen  another 30 and more points!  And a basic increase in pen-  . sion payments has been denied.

Even if we spent  three weeks studying the problem,' someone would inevitably    bring   up    yet    another  Thursday August 16 1951    The Q.ast JNlews  how  big  point.    That's  question is.  We    must    eventually  down to eases. For, after  cases are people and it is  the  get  all,  the  clothing,  sheltering of  feeding,  people    with   which    pensions  are concerned.   I have  quoted  figures   of a  general   nature,  statistics which  were  published at the recent veterans  affairs committee  sittings ��� in  fact the background study for  these.four broadcasts took me  to   the  official   transcript   of  . committee,  proceedings,   Hansard,   and  Legion  Briefs   and  case histories, .and so on. This  is all  available for anyone to  reaxil.   Hansard   is   obtainable  from Ottawa, write your member.  The  Legionaire magazine  contains    countless    editorials,  records   of. individual ~ cases,,  veteran's    opinions   from    all  across the country. The cost of  living picture is an open book  to everyone, and statistics show  how  much a   person needs  to  eat,.put clothes on his back, a.  roof over his head and so on.  But there  is this danger in  statistics: they do not present'  the  basic  problem;   which   is.  how to keep the handicapped  alive   and   contented  with   at  least a nominal amount of self  respect.  The government looked ' at  the statistics and came up with  the new Unemployability Supplement. They also looked at  current defence expenditures ���  ant aecided 2 million dollars  was about all .that could be  spent at the present time.  Whether considererd merely an  emergency stop-gap measure or  as alleged bjr the Canadian  Legion a dangerous departure  from established traditions of  pensions legislation, the fact  remains that the TTnemploya-  bility Supplement is inadequate  to meet the basic problems of  all pensioners.

Roasted, fried, stewed or  in sandAvicheS', chicken is delightfully delicious. But, unless you can handle enough to  keep the whole thing on a  strictly impersonal basis, don't  let the flavor of the birds stir  up an urge to raise  menus, so says the  experience. '  We.have chickens. Have had  them for three years and will  probably continue to have  them. Like the itch, they are  harder to get rid off than to  get ��� short of wholesale  slaughter. But having them  isn't easy. The mental anguish  while frying., anatomical segments   of a feathered   friend  your own  voice  of  called   '' Buster' \   is  still as  acute now as it was the first  time we cut down on the flock.  The high rate of exchange on  eggs is all that makes the anguish bearable.  Our initial entry into the  poultry-raising business was  comparatively painless. Someone else got them out of diapers and turned them over to  us. Six adolescent Rhode  Island hens and frvyo roosters.  They were nameless with no  identifying characteristics beyond a glint of eye and a certain amount of rear-end sartorial elegance denoting the  roosters.  We felt we had made adequate preparations for their  arrival. A rather neat building, constructed of slightly  planks     salvaged  surrounded  weathered  from  the    beach,  F  by a wire fence which took  adult males two hours to put  up. ' Nonetheless;, for reasons  now forgotten, we spent several hours of the chicken'si  first night with us crawling  around in the bushes. Why  they took to the bushes in the  first place, why we crawled in  after them, or why any of us  came out of the bushes at all,  is beyond me.  Aside from that first skirmish our lives together were  more or less without .incidents  They'd have been a lot less  except for one factor. The  largest rooster was the nastiest  male unrelated to the Borgias.  A beauty to' look at, but with  a disposiion so vile that even  the hens viewed him with  great displeasure. He bullied  the smaller roaster to such an  extent that the poor little fellow moved out of the yard at  the crack of dawn and returned only ; when . the big brute  was too sleepy to move. After  six or so months of being  victimized the small one got  the axe. This was in the nature  of a humanitarian act not a  desire to eat chicken.  For  some   time  the'routine  remained the same ��� feed the  -things,    keep ;v)their    quarters  clean and  collect   eggs. Then  in  the .early spring .six,  day-  old chicks arrived. None of the  hens were old enough to have  developed any, strong maternal  instincts so tlie pre-school. care  was up to. us.   We rigged up  a  cardboard  box  and   placed  it  beside  the    kitchen    stove.  That was fine during the day,,  but night presented a problem.  After  a   considerable    amount  of mental scratching, the head  of the house got a bright idea.  An   old   enamel  coffee   pot,   a  remoyeable   wall  light, turned  upside   down   into   the   coffee  pot, and twenty feet of cord,  made   a   fair    heating    plant.'  The babies didn't think much;  of their  warm,  shiny   mother  until we covered it with a pair  of woolen    soakers   belonging  to  small   daughter,   but   from  then on they snuggied up cosily. That nght we retired happy with the thought that our  charges were safe and warm.  Some time later a crash, clatter and a wail sent us flying  to the kitchen. 8, outward  bound from his. room, had  tripped over the twenty feet  of electric cord. This had more,  than a disrupting effect on the  heating plant. It removed it  from the box entirely, leaving  the babies completely shattered by their rude awakening,  and the sudden disappearance  of their ersatz mamma.. Excitement ran high until we  restored order and soothed  8 and the chicks. There wasn't  any other place to plug the  cord except directly across the  path of the nightly pilgrimages. We solved the problem  quite effectively, by placing  three pieces of stove wood  over the cord in front of the  door. After stubbing his toe  hard enough to wake him up  three nights in a row, 8's subconscious took to the extent  of ���automatically lifting his  feet over both cord and wood.  Our nights resumed their  normal quiet. Of the days I  will speak no more till next  week.  ONE IN FIVE  In a typical vear, gas and  oil companies drill about 7,500  wells in the United. States.

Pearson, president of Sechelt Board  of Trade, queried Alexander  Peabody, president of Howe  Sound Navigation Company  and president jof Black Ball  Line   (U.S.).  It is the insignia used by  the American Navy denoting  efficiency.  In a short address to guests  of Gibsons Board of Trade  banquet, presided over by C.  Lock Knowles,' Capt. Peabody  likened the early days of the  Puget Sound operations to  that of the Sechelt Peninsula  now.  ��� He assured* that a like  growth would fellow here in  the wake of the new ferry  service.  " There are some who think  we are getting too ambitious  with our five trips a day," he  told reporters later. "But we  aim on being ahead of the de-.  mand. This lagging and waiting for traffic' is one of the  downfalls. Have the service  ahead of them and tourists  will come. You watch your  growth. It will be unbelievable."  Enamel lined cans are highly desirable with some kinds  of canned foods to retain an  attractive appearance; for example, to preserve the color  of   red   fruits   or   to   prevent  sulphur staining of the car  interior, according to * the  American Can Company.

GAMBIER ISLAND. ��� Inspectors from the Game Board  will investigate illegal shooting of a fine male deer, according to reports from islanders.  The buck had been previously shot through the lower  jaw, and had wandered for  three days with a partly severed tongue prior to its being  destroyed by Dick Atcheson  on authority of the Game Department.  The animal had been a  source of pride to residents  and indignation runs high at  the wanton killing of the fine  animal. It is believed this  further killing will add impetus to the cry for a game  reserv on the Island.

Also some forms of radioactivity  may travel many-'miles. Because they may have to take action  on their own responsibility, without waiting for assistance from trained  Civil Defence workers, it is of the utmost importance that the older  members of a family should know what to do.  3.  The rural population must know how to protect their families in the  event of a national emergency in peace as well as in war. They must  be prepared to play a major role in the evacuation and care of casualties,  and refugees. An outstanding example of this was the evacuation  system set up to move evacuees from the Manitoba flood area.
