Gibsons, B. C.  Monday, Aug. 21, 1950  5c per copy, $2.00 per year, by mail  EDITORSAL . . .  LADIES and Gentlemen, this paper sincerely believes that a  grave injustice is being done to residents of the Peninsula  and it sincerely believes it is being done with intent aforethought, in order to either ''teach us a lesson" or to take a.vicarious revenge.  The Department of Municipal Affairs, under ��� Honorable  the Minister, R C. MacDonald and his second in command, B.  C. Bracewell, is believed to "dislike certain people in Gibsons  or district." This, it is thought, is the reason behind the bizarre  series of events which have come to light re the amalgamation  of district lots 686 and 685.  The Coast News has to hand probably the greatest pile of  slush and double talk it has been our bad luck to come* across.  This jumble of nothing comes under the heading "correspondence" from the Department.  Five years ago, the move to have" District Lot 685 amalgamated with Gibsons Village was started and just one month ago,  following three petitions, the unequivocal approval of the Village Commission and the avowed satisfaction of B. C. Brace-  well, th��.department has the nerve and gall to come out again  and say, "another petition is necessary owing to the statutory  regulqtions." X  According to our information, there is absolutely no hope  of there being a fourth petition circulated. This leads to the  belief that something drastic will have to be done in order to  force our servants to do what is only just and right.  There are men laying deep in Italy, France, Holland, Germany and other foreign lands/who died to make this country  free. They died to give us a way of life where we can live without fear or want in a democratically run country of our choosing.  And now we have our own servants giving us the well  known 'run around7.  We seem to recall another man who begot himself fat and  dictatorial because he lived in a life af sneers at the public he  purported to serve. Mussolini came to an ignoble end owing to  his superior attitude. \Ve have the thin edge of a dictatorial  wedge in our department of municipal affairs and its attitude  of "we are running this". "    .    ,  The following is a number of excerpts taken from letters  covering the proposed and much needed[amalgamation.  x   We would sincerely urge M^  to penjse them with thought only of his people's betterment  guiding his reaction.    We feel sure he will not fail us now that  we really need help.  Following is a letter from E. H. Bridgeman, January 12,  1945, in which he answers the original letter sent from the  Village of Gibsons Landing.  "With respect to the water system, this would not appear  to present great difficulty; as, should there be a demand for the  extension of the water system, the area benefitting should pay  for the improvements the same as the old district had to do in  the past. Section 62 (now 65) of the "Municipal Act" I think,  could be made applicable to the Village of Gibsons Landing  which would permit you to levy a special charge for the services  required in that part of the enlarged Village."  Following i? the letter from B. C. Bracewell, dated July 28,  1947, sent after the village had again enquired about the proposition.  "Should the Commissioners be of the opinion that frontage as well as users rates are called for, it is* within the realm  of possibilities that power to impose frontage rates could be  confeYred."  Said R. C. MacDonald on October 24, 1947:  "The people who should circulate the petition and submit  it to the Commissioners are those living in D.L. 685, if they  wish to amalgamate." ..'-   '  From the same, source following another letter and a visit  by the minister comes this. Note the last two sentences.  "I would suggest that what is required is a plan whereby  all the area benefitting by the water service, whether users or  not, should pay the capital cost of the installation of the water  service. : I thought I suggested this procedure to you when I  referred to your right to create a water area, but I was of the  opinion that this was not what you required.  "\ note where you are of the opinion that Section 62 of  the "Municipal Act" would be suitable for your scheme. That  was the section I had in mind When I suggested that you create  a water area, and, as a matter of fact, if I were the Commissioners, that is the section under which I would act."  The following is from B. ��� C. Bracewell, dated June 20,  1949, to answer to a letter from the commissioners requesting  Section 65, (the right to levy their own local improvement tax)  be incorporated in the Village bylaws.  "Should the commissioners not wish to accept the added  responsibilities (i.e. added burden on the treasury) then they  can, at their option, reject the petition."  Now comes one of the most amazing about faces ever  made since the time of Hirohito. It is from'the pen of the man  who wrote the above.  v "I am authorized to say that unless unconditional action  is taken it may be found necessary to recall the Letters Patent  incorporating'the.Village of Gibsons Landing and to issue in its  place new Letters Patent incorporating the larger area."  B. C. Bracewell wrote the following words on December 7,  1949:  "If my files are correct, there have been two petitions for  (Continued on Page 8)  GIBSONS���Williamson's Road has been the first  highway to  receive treatment under the proposed double flushing program.  It may be a few dqys prior to the arrival of the actual double flushing equipment from Vancouver Island, but necessary  repairs will be undertaken by that equipment now on the job.  Following     the     Williamson's   road levelling, and weather-  score-filling already done, the  highway between Sechelt and  Wakefield is next in line for  widening to a proposed 24 feet  "provided rock outcrop is not too  great."  Said a public works spokesman, "If there are too many out-  croppings of bedrock along the  right of way, we may have to  leave them." It costs many dollars to blow some of the rocks  confronting road builders on the  peninsula."  It is believed double flush  equipment will be here sometime  within one week.  A bulldozer and blade is now  preparing for the arrival.  Projects at Gibsons, according  to tentative plans now laid, will  be first in line for treatment.  "We intend to hurry the job as  much as we can, compatable with  efficiency."  Correction  LAST WEEK, final date of Union  Steamship schedules was given  as November 4. This should read  September 4.  Labor Day  will see the   final  trip   made  by the popular   and  stately  Lady   Alexander  to   the  port of Gibsons.  On this date will also cease  operation the Howe Sound Ferries. Information to this effect  was given by Union Steamships  from the head office in Vancouver.  But to a mistake in the printing shop the wrong date was  given.  September 4 will see the end  of Union activity for Gibsons and  the Howe  Sound Islands.  Ball Game  To Juniors  GIBSONS���At long last.,. C.Y.O.,  aided by Sechelt and managed  by Steve Littlejohn, beat down  the ogre of the Firemen baseball  team when they tangled here  Wednesday.  On the long end of a 5-4 score,  the youngsters have taken revenge for the many beatings they  received   during  the year.  Il could be brought out the  Firemen worked all the previous  night putting out a fire and  could probably be in poor condition, but such excuses would  hardly be tolerated by the enthusiastic youngsters.  The next game should tell the  true story.  Harry Plugs In  Praise Circuit  GIBSONS���Harry   Winn,    genial  master of the plug board of the.  Government      Telephone      exchange, had a few words of appreciation  for the volunteer fire;  brigade.  Speaking on the recent fire at-  the S corners on the Sechelt  highway, Harry says: "Three  minutes after the siren was  sounded at approx. 1 a.m., Wednesday, the first pieces of equipment were on their way. The  fire brigade arrived in a matter  of seconds, complete with their  own private cars in order to get  to the scene of the fire in shorter,  time. There were about fifteen  vehicles,", said Harry.  "It was a grand display of  speed and efficiency. The boys  deserve a lot of credit."  Inglis Death Recalls "Glendalough"  Life of Service Work  GIBSONS���This Peninsula lost one of its most colorful and most  admired personalities in the death of Dr Frederick Inglis,  C80; who died at his home August-12.' "���'���������  Well known   and  liked   along      ���; ���  the shores of Howe Sound for  his kindliness and interest in the  sick, he was also famed in the  wider field of labor relations. He  was a firm believer in the rights  of the little fellow and spent  much time and effort in promoting better labor regulations both  in this and other countries.  He came to the Sechelt peninsula in 1913 following six months  service at Vancouver General  Hospital. Previous to that he  had served as a church missionary at Telegraph Creek for eight  years. .  Bruce County was his birthplace and he carried with him  that rugged pioneering individuality for which those Ontarians  are so well know.  Tom McE'wen, editor of the  Pacific Tribune, speaking at the  funeral service, pointed out that  Dr. Inglis would be missed, "not  only here' but" in. every land  where labor fighting and struggle has been going on." He reminded the packed hall that "the  doctor's name is well known in  France where shelltorn veterans  from Spain are .lying in a huge  hospital that was" made possible  because of the generosity of Dr.  Inglis and men like him. These  people will mourn his passing  when they hear."  "In the logging camps, in the  fishing fleets as well as the halls  of labor, his wise council and  helping hand will be missed,"  Mr. McEwen said. "There will be  cmourning in far places at the  passing of such a fine gentleman  and friend of labor."  "Dr.  Inglis,"   the   labor  editor  said,   "took  his ideals   from the  'high plane of his profession and  ;  the music of  the masters.     Our?  memorial to this great man mustX  be in us carrying on the struggle  with   his ideals and   convictions  behind    us.       That  can be our  greatest   tribute     to     him   who  worked for us  so hard."  Dr. R. C. Scott, one of the first  ministers here, spoke of the early  days when the late doctor struggled with poor, equipment and  small boats to help the people of  ' the .islands.  "The doctor was of an enquiring riiind which often nonplussed  even me," he remarked. "He  always wanted to get to the bot  tom of things. It was this attribute which often led people to  misunderstand him. I cannot  think of Dr. Inglis without associating him with finer, better  things," he said.  Dr. Scott made it clear that  often people who thought they  were going .to heaven were quite  probably the ones most disappointed while they who had little  thought of gaining the ultimate  were the ones, by virtue of their  honesty and help to others, who  entered to the Great Presence.  Dr. Inglis was buried in Seaview cemetery by. the side of his  wife who had predeceased him  in 1944. He is survived by two  daughters, Mrs. Helen Shoebot-  tom, here; Mrs. Kathleen Godwin, Courtenay, and four sons,  Dr. Hugh and Eric, here; Dr.  Allan in North Vancouver, and  Jack at Horseshoe Bay. There  are fourteen grandchildren.  Rev. H. J. Bevan officiated.  Graham's Funeral Home was in  charge of arrangements.  SECHELT���The   following   visitors are guests at popular Glendalough Guest House operated by  Mrs. J. Mayne.  Mrs. S. Hendry, Miss Margaret  Hendry, Miss .

Thorpe, Mr. Tom Bar-  ritt, Miss Joyce Hamer, Miss Jay  Huddleston, Master Ronald Hut-  chins and Mr and Mrs Jim Kut-  chins.  Fire Destroys  Old Landmark  GIBSONS���Fire totally destroyed, early Wednesday morning,  the one-time home of Otto Ban-  garter on the Sechelt Highway.  New owner, R. Salant, had  lately returned from the prairie  and was repairing the home for  occupancy in the near future.  The fire, attended by the Gibsons fire brigade at 1 a.m., had  completely demolished the home  by the time the brigade arrived.'  It had taken two hours to inform the volunteers following the  outbreak.  It is believed the home was  partially covered with insurance.  Bylaw Vote May Be  Light On Wednesday  GIBSONS���Third reading was given to the new water bylaw at  a meeting of Village Council, Wednesday.  It was disclosed that Vote on the bylaw will hold good for  Wednesday. It is expected the vote will be light but all precautions have been taken in event the full roll of ratepayers take  advantage of their franchise.  \  tie  the  in   six  Pratt  Council   agreed  :more   applicants   on  road extension.  X...A letter from the Ratepayers'  Association requesting council to  take some action in the pending  taxi rate increase, was turned  down.  Said Commissioner Mrs. E.  Nestman. "If the association  wants to object they should apply directly to the Public Utilities  Commission. The proposed increase will hardly affect the village."  Council took time off to voice  praise for the very fine efficiencv- av^q  shown by the volunteer  firemteire^^^^*3  in answering recent fires.  "They  are a credit to the village."  SCIENTIFIC   SLIMMING  Keeping slim is more than a  matter of beauty. It is also a  matter of health. Scientists now  know that persons who are overweight are far more likely to  succumb to many illnesses than  those of normal weight. Controlled diet under the supervision  of a physician is the best way of  losing weight.  VT.  OIA  AHvaan ivio-.iACHd New Hearse for  Funeral Home  GIBSONS ��� Clue "to the steady  growth of this peninsula lies  in the news that Graham's Funeral Home has added another  vehicle to its ambulance-hearse  fleet.  "This new vehicle, a Buick  which can be used as an ambulance, will help us to give a better service to the people," said  Mr. Graham announcing the addition.  "In having to cover such a  large area, we often find ourselves unable to provide service  to the north end because we  have been busy at the south."  "This new vehicle is of the  latest design and should be a  real service to the area. As this  district grows, so will we," Mr.  Graham said.  AN AID TO SICKNESS  Doctors know that many people actually worry themselves into ill health. When they suspect  they may have a disease, instead  of consulting a doctor immediately they worry and fume  about symptoms for weeks or  months. In addition to carrying  a heavy load of worry, these people also decrease their chances  of early cures by delay in securing medical aid.  HEALTH AT   HOME  Pasteurization of milk can be  easily and effectively carried out  at home or at camp. The milk  need merely be heated to a temperature of 175 to 180 degrees  Fauhrenheit, cooled quickly and  placed in a cold place until used.  A floating dairy thermometer for  use in this work can be purchased for a few cents at most drug  stores. Don't take the needless  risk of drinking raw milk.

'  There seems to be something about either of  ��� these  that lends  itself to creating excitement in  the eyes of the  very young or old and a slight  feeling of pleasure to those of us  who claim  to  be staid.-  The Farmers' Fair and the Pender Harbour  Regatta are two events of the past week which  have brought far greater pleasure to the folks of  this peninsula than their worth in dollars and  cents would indicate.  It was a gay time, a happy time and a pleasant time at both ends of the road. In the beautiful setting of Garden Bay, tucked away at the  toe of the fiord which is Pender Harbour, the  shrill screams of children were mixed with the  happy laughter of adults. There was a clean cut  competitive spirit of friendly rivalry^ in the atmosphere as each sporting event took place.  The experts were greeted with generous applause. The good people found it easy to be free  with their gratitude and kudos, as each athlete  did his utmost for the cause.  , The bumber dance at night in Madeira Park's  new Community Hall, was one of the outstanding  social events of the year, rivaling even the  opening  dance  at the same   place.  It is believed the regatta was a financial  success which is also part of the story. Without  black ink at the end of the big day they, who  toiled so long and so thanklessly to make this  regatta one of the finest in history, would be  desolate.*That would take the pleasure out of it  for everyone.  More good than  dollars   came  from the  regatta.- The  same result acrued   from  the   Farm .  er's Fair.  This paper always has a soft side for the  men who follow the plough, either metaphorically or actually.  There is something about a _ Farmer's Fair,  complete with midway and well stocked shelves  that recalls to mind the days on the prairie  when everyone gathered around the church door  just before entering to celebrate the Harvest  Thanksgiving. ���     ���.  Big,    gnarled   farmers,   awkward    in   their  seldom used Sunday clothes, stand outside and  swap crop stories while the women, scrubbed  red faced, smile as they enter first the church.  The Gibsons and District Farmer's Fair had  something in common with that picture. Long  vegetable marrow brought gasps from the city  visitor as did some of. the fine art work and  pottery displayed.  The Sunshine Poultry Club members were  proudly self conscious about their very fine  entries. The competitors went religiously around  and congratulated their neighbours for having  such a fine  display.  The kids were in their glory. For some of  them it was the only time this year they had  seen anything given over completely to joy  making and competition.  . There is another side to the Farmer's Fair  which must not be overlooked, and that is the  publicity angle.  Many were the visitors who had their 'eyes  opened' "during the two day occasion. For many  it was the first glimpse of what can be grown  on this peninsula. For many it was the first  clue that this was not alone a lumbering or  fishing community.  Proof of the area's fertility and the far-  < mers ability lay before their eyes. They stood,  many of them, in amazement at the growth  evidenced by the produce. They were equally  amazed that such quantity could be mustered,  from, what to the newcomer, looks like great  mountains covered with tall trees or bare from  logging operations.  These people from the city and from other  small towns who witnessed the fine Fair, will  depart with the real truth of this area on  their tongues. They have seen what it can do.  These people who came and saw strange;  things will be the best publicity carriers we  could possibly promote.  We  are very glad the fair was as successful  as it turned  out to be. Everyone can  brag and  boast   and state,   depending upon their  natures.-  But, whatever it may be, it will be, it will have  to   be,  good public relations on the part of the  men and women who toiled so long and hard 1?c,  make the Farmer's Fair,  the sucess it was.  Thank  you   very much,  farmers.  We   are glad to associate with you.  >    >.

Color, flavor and texture also vary greatly.  Among the well known kinds  of summer squash are the "patty  pans", "Scalloped", "Cymling",  "Crookneck", and "Zucchini"  squashes. These types are used  when under-ripe before the seeds  have fully developed or the skin  toughened.

Thanks to the co-operation of the crew. Guardian angels certainly working overtime  watching over some of our very  small fry around the main street  these hectic busy summer days.  Trucks are backing up, or going  straight along the road, are certainly driving very carefully, and  it's really pushing luck too far to  expect the summer to end without some child getting hurt. It's  certainly a credit to our drivers  around the district that such a  calamity has not taken place before now. I counted five small  ones today, just daring the  trucks to hit them. Are the children wholly to blame in   this?  UNNECESSARY DEATHS  Last year well over 100 Canadian children died from whooping coiigh. Their deaths were  unnecessary' because their parents failed to protect them by  vaccination.

But the old sandbar did it again,  and I wouldn't mind having the  price of the logs washed up on  our beach, after the boom came  to grief recently, the bonniest  looking timber seen around these  parts, in a long time. And while  we were surveying the mix-up,  we were treated to another exhibition of gunnery skill, by the  lads aboard one of the RCN battle-wagons, the display lasted  about two hours.  Undeservedly, I took a lambasting from several members of  our local community centre for  not giving an account of the  sports, held last week. Well, I  did my part, and I'm sorry it did  not appear in print, but the real  reason . for this unfortunate  omission should come from another department.  Many of you will be glad to  learn that our mutual friend,  Bert Wright is as well as can be  expected.  Miss. Lilian Mydska, after being with us last week end, decided to return and spend the  next two weeks at her mother's  resident at Davis Bay. Mrs. Olson, with son Arne, who were  also staying at the Mydska home,  left for Vancouver this week.

Schubert, division  superintendent of the government service.  Following is the letter received  by present subscribers with their  last month's account.  The department has advised  that very low rental rates have  been in force on certain sections  of the Government Telephone  lines for many years and these  rates were based on a very primitive type of telephone service.  With the present program of  metallicing and improving our  lines and connecting them for  service into the continent-wide  facilities of other companies, it  is expected that the rates will  have to be brought more in line  with the charges for similar service by private companies.  We, therefore, wish to take this  opportunity of advising you that  it is expected there will be an  upward revision of telephone  rates in this service in the near  future. You will be advised at  a later date when information is  available of the proposed new  rates.

In the days when the  roads were nothing much better  than trails the Doctor never refused a call if it were in his power to get there somehow and  many ar person then in poor circumstances received his care  and never received a bill. We  especially recall his kindness to  any dumb animal in distress and  remember the time when he so  kindly destroyed a cat of ours  that was suffering. So what can  i be more fitting when one is old,  one must pass on to the higher  life to be thought of with love  and appreciation and to stand  out in one's thoughts as a KINDLY GENTLEMAN!

Celebrating her 95th birthday  quietly with her family at her  home, Rexwood, was Mrs J. J.  Nickson. Many friends called  and phoned during the day to  wish this "our first lady of the  district" many happy returns.  Coming here in 1911 with her  family Mrs Nickson has been  very active until these last years  in community affairs especially  veterans' affairs and was one of  the original charter members of  the Legion Auxiliary of whom  she is honorary president. She is  also a life member of the Red  Cross. Her , kindly spirit and  friendly manner has endeared  her to all who know her and the  young war brides of the first  world war have much to thank  Mrs Nickson for. She was always  there in time of stress and her  unfailing good, humor helped  many through the difficult times  of that period. So we too wish  her many happy returns.

We hear the Warnock boats are  still around Dean Channel. The  skippers and crew are kinda missed around these parts and there  is still two months to go.  Art and Cleta Duncan were  recent visitors to the big city on  a combined business and pleasure trip.  SEPTEMBER   DANGERS  Flies can be just as dangerous  in September as they are in July.  Make sure that insects and pests  are kept out of your house right  up till the cold weather starts.  Flies and other insects are dangerous carriers of disease. Kill  them on sight.

The latest letter received at  this end of the line now informs,  after all the above palaver, that  another petition is needed. Believe it or not. This would be the  fourth.  We must vehemently urge  Mr. Maclntyre to intercede on  behalf of these residents who are  literally being pushed around by  these arrogant hirelings in Victoria. There must be some way  to stop it. We demand that Mr.  Maclntyre do something immediately.  When planning meals for the  day be sure to include meals  from every group in Canada's  Food Rules.

One Long Blast  Calls Firemen  GIBSONS���A set of   suggestions  forwarded by Fire   Chief Wilf  Gray   to  facilitate   fire   fighting  has just been released.  1. When "turining , in" a fire  at the Shell Gas station call box,  please remain until assured the  fire brigade is fully acquainted  with location of the conflagration. One long blast is all that  is needed.  2. If unable to reach the call  box, immediately phone the telephone exchange. State clearly  where the fire is located then go  to the nearest point on the highway to the fire and await the arrival of the fire brigade.  It is pointed out that by this  means many fires may easily be  brought under complete control  prior to serious loss.  The rules are simple, the fire  chief says. "Please memorize  them. They may mean the difference between total or negligible loss to you or your friends."  Buyers  want to see previews.  Advertise more in The News.

''  ���MZF9V  Working Party Gives  Boost To Vet's  GAMBIER ISLAND���Construction of an addition to the Army,  Navy and Airforce Veterans7 Hall   received a real  boost  from a volunteer working party last week.   : 1       " Answering    a    call' for    help  S  &&C&  fares!  1  I  mM$$M  V.  BEN WILLIAMS, Gen.  Manager  NATIONAL  EXHIBITION  ���Letters To The Editor  Phone Rate Boost  Objections Filed  SECHELT ��� This community's  Board of Trade under president Ken Whitaker may have  started what could easily turn  into a battle to stop the boost in  telephone rates.  The telegraph department of  the B.C. government has notified  all telephone users that rates will  be increased owing to betterment  of equipment.  Following is a copy of the letter sent by Sechelt Board of  Trade in protest.  We note from a copy of a  mimeographed letter presumably  sent to all telephone subscribers  in this area, that in view of certain technical improvements an  increase in rates is contemplated.  This board, for sometime had  intended writing to you about  the inadequacy of the present  long distance service. Delays of  up to two hours are common, resulting in inability to secure supplies   before   wholesalers    close  issued by the veterans' unit  president, Francis Drage, J.P.,  men and women turned but,  complete with tools, and did a  major job of building.  In thanking the volunteers,  Captain Drage spoke on the fine  co-operation his unit has always  received from Gibsons people. He  pointed out that a great number  of the members were Gibsons  men. "This hall," he said,  "serves equally Gibsons and  Gambier Island. There is a fine  feeling among veterans which  can lend itself to better co-operation than many more vaunted  motives."  Pointing his remarks on cooperation and mutual respect, he  disclosed he was going to be  guest speaker in the near future  at a general meeting of the Canadian Legion branch in New Westminster.  "I have\ accepted the invitation," Captain Drage said. "I  have also accepted an invitation  to write an article on this hall  and its origin for the Legion  Magazine."  "This   is   ctoubly   pleasing   to,  me,"   he   remarked,, 'as " it    (the  New Mestminster branch) is the  largest in B.C.   It also, prints its  own magazine.   It is  a fine ges- :  and    often    seriously   inconveni  encing others    requiring   urgent    ture of working for all veterans  business information. This is  apart from personal calls which  should also receive proper consideration.  More direct lines to Vancouver  are a necessity here and provided rates are in keeping with  the service, we feel no reasonable  person will object.  JACK MAYNE,  Secretary.  SIR,  ��� Before  leaving Sechelt,  after spending two glorious  weeks with friends, I feel that  more people should support the  protest voiced by Mrs. Stanley  Ingram in her letter printed in  your last issuer  I will go one better than Mrs.  Ingram who states that she  thought wild animals were let  loose on the night of July 29  from the Legion Hall. To me it  sounded as if the North Koreans  had arrived!  Trusting there will be a cleanup before next holidays roll  around.        \  Wishing your bright little  paper success. Yours for a decent  Sechelt.  RUTH CHAPPERTON,  Langley, B.C.
