 Victoria,   B.  C  I��� i- ���-' - -  Phcne your news or"  orders to  S^th Year of Publication Vol. 4-91        Thursday October 18 1951      Serving the Sunny Sechelt Peninsula "Where Fishermen Need Never lAe."  "Florence Nightingale".. ��� 1951  over  Five R.C.A.F. nurses have become the first women to "hit the silk"  as members of the R.C.A.F.'s third peacetime para-rescue course.  First to make the leap was NURSENG SISTER PO. MARION  NEBLY, of Middleto.n, N.S.. shown here in full jumping kit.  Hough  Heads Poll in  Rep Election  Forty^-nine  persons  voted  to   elect  Norman  Hough,  Tom  Humphries and George Marsden school board district 46 representatives for the year ,il952, from the.-Village ofv^ibsons.  yy'Mi:.  -Hough   with  35  votes ? '"'���', "'   '  .  ;   *������>*>?���������������.. ��� ���__���_  Local Vets May  Have Led The Way  VICTORIA. ��� Immediate  changes are to be made in the  Hospital Insurance Act, according to information credited to the Minister's office.  Following a conference between Sydney Smith, MLA,  chairman of the recent hospital  enquiry board and The Hon.  the Minister of Health and  "Welfare, Douglas Turnbull, it  is believed changes will be  made by graduating premiums  for low income groups, a  crackdown on premium dodgers with collections through  payroll accounts, and some  adjustments to hospitals for  small debts*still outstanding  from previous patients.  These changes follow very  closely the brief presented by  local veterans, particularly  . the graduated premiums urged  by the Army, Navy and Airforce under Captain Francis  Drage and. the planned fairer  treatment for chronic eases so  strongly urged by Legion brief  presenters headed by Robert  Macnicol. y}-:'~ **: y    .  Doctor Reaflrins  His Objections  making  Dr. Hugh Inglis is  sure the village does not forget that he is against granting  of parking lot rights to Jules  Sehutz on the lot adjoining the  medical man's residence.  He wrote village fathers, at  last meeting, that he was still  objecting to the lot being  allowed. Loss of privacy and  reduction of value were two  points stressed by the doctor.  He  also warned the  site was  poor,  with  side.  being on a steep  grade  bjlind   corners   at   either  headed   the  poll,   Humphries  '^was    second    with   30   while'  Marsden stacked up 29.  In his report to the people,,  present school "^oard president,  Tom Humphries said that hiring of a maintenance man (H.  J. Chaster) had 'resulted in  savings in repairs and. upkeep  of schools.in the district.  School buses are now operated at Roberts Creek, Hopkins Landing, Gower Point,  Sechelt, Halfmoon Bay, Silver  Sands, Kleindale and Bowen  Island, . while ferries service  children from Gambier Island,  Pender Harbour, Nelson . Is-  / land and Egmont.  The Board is paying board  and lodging allojvance for 11  students at a rate of $15 per  month. Tuition fees are paid to  the-Vancouver School Board  for three students who have  elected. to attend sehool outside the district.  . .  The dental programme,  started last year, is still being  operated. It is hoped the same .  dental treatment ��an be given  to grade four, , as is now received by the lower grade, Mr.  Humphries said.  Trustees  thanked   the  var-"-..  ious P-T.A. groups in the area  for the fine cooperation work  done by them.  .  Nelson Island school was  opened in January, while. Roberts Creek was turned over  to students in May. A small  v amount of work is yet to be  done on the Pender Harbour  and SecheH Schools but the  building.; are now in use while  final touches are being administered.  Trustees, said the chairman,  felt very lucky in being able  to complete the various schools  at costs within the bylaw-  Spiralling costs of material  and labour often threatened  the price ceilings.  Gold Laying  id  Live Decides  Gibsons Village Commission flatly refused to back a peti-  Goose Can  Village  tion emanating  government to:  frcm  Vehicle  1. Retain all S.S.  grants.  2. Retain  Motor  grants.  ��� 3. Assume all school ordinary expenditures exclusive of  debt charges.  4. Assume all Social Assistance and Medical costs.  5. Assume all Hospitalization and Health costs.  6. Place responsibility on  municipal governments for the  full cost of sehool building  construction.  The brief was presented to  the Union of B.C. Municipalities.  f     It claimed that cost* of fire  and    police-   services,    street  lighting,    parks,    board   of  works, debt charges and gen- {  eral administration were direct  responsibility     of     municipal  governments,   being   " property-'-,  charges.    These   services,  the  brief   claimed,  aided  and  increased the value of property, therefore it was only fair  that charges should be levied  thus.  "Personal" charges, such as  hospital, education, social  assistance, medical services,  health unit and hospitalization, should be the responsibility of the senior governments.  The brief points out that the  senior governments are taking  more and more power into  their hands and forcing municipalities to carry too large a  load; oft "personal" services.  The majority of "property"  services have caused an inflex-  North Vancouver which would  & M.A. tax  urge  the  only flexible budgets ��� parks  aid and board of works ��� having to take up the slacks with  diminishing totals for these  two  services.  It may be recalled that board  of works was the- original  reason for property taxes.  The brief goes on to suggest  that school buildings are an  asset to the area, therefore  should be paid for out of "property" or municiptl taxes. It  contends a "minimum" should  be borne by the government.  The brief ends with the  thought' that distribution of  government grants is inequitable and will continue so as  long as their being given is  based on a rapidly fluctuating  and changing populations basis.'  Sechelt Gets  New Services  Off the record guesses," place cost of the proposed .$74,000  water expenditure at approximately 12 and one half cents per  front foot in the west or new portion of 686 and all of district  lot 6S5.  A minimum footage of 50  and a maximum of 100 will be  used in order to facilitate cost  valuation.  Village Council, as yet, has  not officially considered these  figures prepared by Village  Assessor Robert Burns.  District lot 685 will be'  ���assessed 40 per cent of the"  total sum while the remainder'  come from the "eld" .village,,���  district lot 688 and iDresent  water  rate.  It is not expected to have-  water rates increased.  The rateable frontage of the1  wester j]    portion   of   D.L.   686  comes  to  approximately 7,673'  feet while  iha.t  of 685 would?  amount to 14,365;  As there are still blocks oi??  land within the village which'  have not been .subdivided.,  when these come on the market they will tend, to decrease'  the required levy on general!  revenue.  Breakdown of ihe proposed?'  portions   to be  borne  by"  the--  various areas are: supply and??  ' general,   $23,310;    district' lot  685, $19,910.22 ,���    district    lot  686, $5,026.69,   and    the    old  village, $2,752.90.,  Extras,    "which    are    only"  maybe," will amount to slightly   over   $1,000,  but   are    not-  considered in the  byTaw.".-  This does not take into account  the  more* than   $20,000  which will  have to   be  found  over  the   period   of   the   loan.,  for interest purposes.  Voting on the bylaw wilt'  take place within the first'  three weeks of December.  A  public  meeting,   complete'  with    engineering   experts    Is--  planned  for  the   near  futurev-  It is   hoped   to   inn   out   last  minute questions on the bylaw"  bv airing the views  of every-  one at this meeting.  Morton Urges  Strict Wharf Rule  Three  more   "No  Parking"  signs  are on order for use  on  Gibsons wharf, - according   to  word received from Ken Morion, federal .public  works department. ���   ������'  In  answer  to  a   village  request   that   parking   on   the  wharf be stopped, Mr. Morton  and   department   of  transport  agent,    T. E. Morrison,    both  advised the  signs were being  made. Both suggested the po\-  ice be called in to enforce the  regulations.  Said Mr. Morton, "there is  little doubt that control and  regulations are required, and  the sooner the better before a  serious accident occurs."  ible character resulting in the  SECHELT. ��� Another service,  "a business  bereair"  has  been    added   to  this   growing  municipality-   with    announcement by Mrs, J. Renton that  she  will    operate   a   complete  accounting,    income    tax, and  secretarial service to the area.  Business is not new to Mrs.  Renton who, at one time, operated the B.C.  Tax Seryice in  Vancouver  prior  to  her   coming to the Peninsula. She was  treasurer     for     the     Roberts  Orpek   Credit   Union   for two  years.  Magistrate Scores  Parking Signs  Gibsons parking bylaw came  in for a few pointed remarks  when Magistrate A n d r e w  Johnston, Friday, .a quitted  George Leslie Begg charged  with parking a motor vehicle  contrary  to  -village  bylaw  80.  In dismissing the case, tin.-  magistrate pointed out that  present signs in the village  were  inadequate.  "There is no indication on  the signs that it is illegal to  park, between eight in the  morning and eight in the evening," he said.  Harry Doren was fined $5  when charged with driving a  motor vehicle without reasonable consideration for. others  the same highway.

Much Ado  Help The Bid  October 22 to 31 has been set aside as the time when this  .Peninsula can show its mercy.  The Canadian National ?Instituf��e of the Blind will sponsor  its first fund raising drive In this area's history.  According to Organizer Harold Guest, the C.N.I.B. has  -already done a lot of ground work among our friends who are,  in need of help or are going to need it wit?bin a short /time.  The drive will he in two formsi One, a direct drive, while  the other will be a door to door canvass undertaken by men;  and women who feel it theCr duty to help they who depend on  ithe white canje.  There are few, if anyj of us, who are unsympathetic to thisf  great cause. It is a drive which goes deep into our hearts.  Let it go just as deep into our pockets.  Fund raising schemes are a glut on the market at the present time and this area is noC- without its many. But when the  C.N.I.B. calls at your door, wether it be via mail or person, just  remember it is not a charitable scheme. It is not just another  drive. It is the institute's greatest source of money in order to  continue fits labor of mercy.  Perhaps now would be a good time to point out that this is  not a case where sympathy is needed.  They who walk in the shadows need no sympathy. They are  complete within themselves, an?d nature, like the gods, having  taken from them has been equally generous in her gifts to those  of us who are blind.  When you donate to the C.N.I.B. do not do so in sympathy  ��� It is out of place. Your money goes toward the traiiningf  schools and maintenance of teachers and/ equipment and buildings which are there to help our friends over that first shock.  Your money* is to help rehabilitate and to give an equal chance  in this world of competition. '  Given a chance to learn the many arts, the blind can compete with you and I on the market.  Their's is not the cry of sympathy or begging. Their's is the  : silent plea for help from the crippled mfcLn,  who,   once on his  feet can walk ajiead with pride and boldness.  like the child  "learning, the'peraon/wHh the white cane, once shown the way,  by means of your help for one day oafJLy, can forge forward on,  ?his own, proud and independent, no longer a burden.  All because of your generosity during the drive.  SCHOOL NE WS  ;   yy!' '   '        by     '"'"' :  MAUREEN  ROSS  During the past few weeks  'three grade ten boys asked the  local people in Roberts Creek  and     Gibsons    the     question:  "Why stay in High School?"  A few of the answers were:  ��� High Sehool education  provides a foundation for one's  life work;  ��� A person needs a High  School education in order to  get a job. The first question  an employer asks is, "What  education have you?";  1 ��� High School is a privilege, some like it and some  don't;  ��� A pupil must stay in  High School in order to keep  abreast with scientific discoveries ; ,  CKWX Presents  Symphony  The Vancouver Symphony  Society is once again presenting a half-hour musical program on CKWX every Thursday night at 9.30, began September 27.

BY  CHERRY  WHITAKER  Of late I have.been getting  a glimmer as to why those well  supplied with surplus Treasury  issues spend a lot of their time  moving around from place to  place. They own a mansion in  one place, a, lodge in another,  a  $20,000  shack   on  a  beach  somewhere   else.    They    move  from the sea to the mountains  .  to the desert stopping at inns  or hotels whenever they aren't;  getting   there  as   fast  as the  roads    and   airlines   will    let.  them. Due to the influence of  the Jalna-type novels5 wherein  the   characters   got so deeply-  rooted in their own particular  soil   a  '.'cat"    couldn't    haul  them out, this habit of skipping hither and thither seemed  to indicate a restlessness  and  instability that boded no good  for the movers.  Age and experience tend to  modify my  views on this apparent shiftiness and the Peninsula serves to illustrate this  point    very    well.     Different  places have  different  appeals  and   the drawback  of one   is  part of the charm of another.  I. would like to have a  retreat    suspended    in    mid-air  above the top of the hill behind  Gibsons.   That. beautiful  panorama of sea,  islands and  mountains can take   a  lot  of  looking at. It doesn't matter  whether its sparkling in brilliant sunshine, sulking under a  cloudy   sky o  r mysteriously  withdrawn in the fog ��� it's  there and it's always beautiful. ���  Further up the Peninsula at  Roberts Creek is another place  I could haunt once in a while.  A dip down off the Lower  Road to a flat, grassy area  edged on three sides with tall  trees. A mere nod to a sloping beach that yields a view  stretching from the Gulf Inlands   to  yiuMAfJ-f^r  column   by ' itself to   describe.  Silver   Sands,    Bargain   Har- -  hour,   Madeira  Park,   Pender  Harbour ...  Every one of these places  has something about them  that at certain times makes  them the most enchanting  place in the world to be.  Something, that at times, no  Other spot can duplicate. A  soft gentle rain never seems to  fall anywhere as satisfactorily  as  at   Pender,  nor  does  that  as  far as   the  eyes ^ fat. August moon slip up into  can see on Vancouver Island.  South-easters pound the beach  in winter and westerlies in the  summer, but snug in its clearing amid the trees a small  house thumbs its nose at the  fury of the storms. Here, I  could like it some of the time.  On, up the highway to Davis  Bay. Who can drive up over  the rise in the road and round  the turn without a small catch  in breath at the sight. ' Blue  and white sea, blue sky and  far up the Vancouver Island  shore, blue, white and pink  mountains faring off into the  distance. I'd like this house to  stand right in the middle of  the curve of the road, please!  Spread out on both sides of  the highway, perched high  above the sea is Selma Park.  An attraction of its own gives  solace to any wender of ways.  Here, too, is a house I could  spend some time in.  Sechelt ... The big winter  storms that hurl the waves at  the beach with thunderous  roars; the calm smooth days of  fall; the blank nothingness of  the November fogs! Trail  Islands standing guard against  the west; tugs and booms holding their own against wind  and sea! These things I have,  because I live there!  Redroofs with its back to the  rest of the Peninsula, keeping  a weather-eye out for what  comes and goes through Welcome Pass. Its white shining  sand and its rocky points  dividing small bays. Its lovely cool park and the small  cottages. Yes, I could spend  time here, and be happy.  And fso it goes ��� Halfmoon  Bay, Secret Cove, Wood Bay,  Middle Point ��� where there  is a dwelling called-''Shingle  Shanty," which needs a whole  the sky as '.. laughingly as it  does in Sechelt ��� or the sun  go down as suddenly as it does  behind Texada Island when  you are at Middle Point.  I think now, that it is possible to put down a root here.  a root there, andNstill be fairly  well anchored to the ground.  Anyway I would like to try.  Canned Milk Hits  Record in 1950  The Canadian production of  canned evaporated milk established an all-time record in  1950, it was recently reported.  A marked increase in exports  and greater domestic demand  pushed production to new  levels, it was indicated.  A total of 256,844,000 pounds  Victoria Claims  Lots of Hay  Hon. Harry Bowman, Provincial Minister of Agriculture,  has just advised the B.C. Federation of Agriculture that the  Provincial Government has  decided.not to take any action  to alliyiate hay shortages in  drought areas of the province.  It will not make the formal,  request to Ottawa, suggested  as a necessary step toward  Federal Government freight  assistance on hay.  This decision was1 in answer  to dairy farmer represent-,  atives from Vancouver Island  and the Lower Mainland, who  appeared as a delegation before him last week asking for  the afyove action by the Provincial Government.  As. his reason for this lack  of action, Mr.' Bowman gave  the fact that, as a result of the  survey made by his Department 's. District Agriculturists,  it would appear as though  there would be adequate  stocks of hay available within,  the province?  He was also of the opinion  the desire for Freight Assistance ou hay during the emergency period was not unanimous among all farmers in the  drought areas, as a number ���  A  I  1  ?���!  m  %  was produced by the nation's  milk processing plants during * especially Yrom"Southem Van  the past year, an increase  of    .couver Island���had  approach  i  1  a  y  j)  nearly 11 per cent over 1949,  according to a review of production figures by the Amer:  ican Can Co.  '' Several overseas markets  for canned evaporated milk  were opened for Canadian exporters during the past year,  mainly due to an easing of the  currency situation,'' stated G.  H. McVean, Canco's manager  of sales.  The increased production  was achieved despite a decline  in the nation's milch cow  population in 1950, he said.  v A middle-aged man is the  one who can recall when the  low-priced car was considered  to be around $500.   '  ed him opposing  the idea.  Another governing factor in  Mr. Bowman's decision was  that he had been advised by  E. C. Carr, Chairman of the  Milk Board that if any Freight  Assistance on hay Was granted  his Board would have to take  that into consideration in arriving at any increased price  for fluid milk.

Fellows at the monthly  meeting of School Board District 46.  Teachers hinted they would  be opening present agreements  with a view to. increases and  suggested a meeting with the  Board. Mr. Fellows, writing  as secretary of the B.C. Trustees Association, suggested to  the Board that an overall B.C.  plan should be thoroughly investigated , prior to granting  of increases. "Teacher's Federations use high grants as levers  in other' areas for receiving  the same. I?  School  Board   Chairman  T.  ' Humphries urged   an   overall  B.C.    plan    for    granting   increases, if any.  It is expected the B.C. Trustees Association will draw up  a plan of salaries including  zonal considerations for guidance of school boards.  It was pointed out that'  reconsideration of teacher's  agreements would be due in  1952.  Mr.  Humphries pointed out  the haphazard manner of various  school  boards in  dealing  with teacher's  demands  when  he recalled that eight arbitration proceedings were entered  into in  one district last year.  Mrs. L. S.

BANKING BY MAIL.HABIT  PAYS  OFF HANDSOMELY  Of all the practices you can  follow in your everyday business if you live out of town,  banking by mail is among the  most adventageous. Many of  the Bank of Montreal's 1,700,-  000 depositors send in their  savings by post when they  find it impossible to visit their  B of M branch.  Letter-box banking also relieves them of worry of keeping large amounts of money at  home. And it helps them save  small sums that might otherwise be spent casually. Passbooks sent in with savings are  brought up-to-date, and are  promptly returned.  Banking by mail offers you  many other conveniences. You  can use a B of M account to  pay your bills by post. You  save time and protect yourself  this way, for your cancelled  cheque becomes a receipt. The  B of M also sells money orders  and drafts by mail, looks after  investments and supplies helpful business information when  you need it.  ' If you live out of town, or  the bank during regular hours,  find it inconvenient to call at  start using the postman's feet  instead of. your own. Drop a  line today to Tom Larson, B  of M manager at Gibson, Sechelt and Port Mellon, asking  for further details.     ��� Advt.

Almost everyone knows of a  blind person who is ahle to do  many things !n literature, recreation and in his employment.  We often ask, ' How is it possible for blind persons to  achieve such reimafkable results in these and other  fields?"  The answer to this and other  questions concerned wilth welfare of the blind lies in the  monogram, "CN.I.B." The  Institute with its multi service  program teaches the Blind to  read and write Braille, finds  jobs for those who are able to  work, provides residence for  those who are alone in the  world and conducts a well-  rounded program of recreation  for all.  The picture above is that of  Mr. Harold Guest, and labile  field worker with the C.N.I.B.  He has found ,that with knowledge, experience and patience,  blind persons ^may be lead  along the road of darkness to  the ligfat of complete adjustment ��� to life without sight.  With the aid if the members  of Peninsula Branch, Mr. Guest  who personifies the Institute  in action throughout the province, is working in your community to assist the blind to  win victory over blindness.

Janitors Request  Wage Increases  Increased cost of living and  boost in school attendance is  catching up with the School  Board District 46 in more ways  than one.  Latest pressure comes from  janitors throughout the district applying for salary increases.  Gibsons and Egmont janitors  sent in requests for increases.  In the case of Gibsons, the  Board decided to grant an  interim increase of $20 per  month "until the new school  comes into operation when we  shall have to review the whole  janitor  picture."  A request from Mrs. D.  Silvey for further remuneration for conveyance of gasoline  from the wharf to Egmont  school, will be held in abeyance  until representatives -hold their  general meeting in the area,  October 21.

In order to offset. the unprecedented drive on maintenance funds, caused by make- -  shift structures continually  needing repairs and the increases due in normal maintenance, an offshot of having a  full time repair man operating,  the Board will have to dip  into other budget figures not  utilized this year.

Mrs. Mildred Simpson, heading a petition of mothers urging that school buses call at  Redroofs instead of the present  stop on the main road, will be  told the Beard will attempt  to remedy the situation.  First move will be permission from Victoria to open the  argument, then negotiation  with the transport firm.  It is estimated cost of the  increased service will be $1.48  per day. ���  Norman Hough moved the  new deal, seconded by Mrs.  Swan.  Mrs. A. MacDonald and Mrs.  L- S. Jackson both led the  drive for the revision of present transpdrt. "These children have to start too early in  the morning the way it now  is," Mrs. ?M?acDonald pointed  out.  A request from Wilson Creek  Community' Club for a new  shuffle in buses in that district, was  turned down.  Children from that area  have to wait one hour at school  The Coast News 7  Thursday October 18 1951  prior to start of classes.  Mrs. Jackson suggested  changes could be made following opening of the Gibsons  High School but "there is  little we can do at the present  time. If we change it for AVii-  son Creek then the other end  will have the same kick."  Children can get into sehool  prior to eight in the morning,  the Board heard. This condition will remain until starting  of the high school bus which  will alter conditions of all  buses catering to Sechelt  school children.  FirehaSS Parking Out  Volunteer firemen will be  given a break by virtue of a  ruling made by village council  to have ho parking signs erected 50 yards and 100 east of the  present  firehall.  The firefighters drew attention to lack of manouvering  room in front and by the sides  of the hall. They requested  removal of dirt piles in the  vicinity. This' will be held in  abeyance until council finds  out where it is going with respect, to this portion of the  road.  Fire hydrants in the village  will be painted red. Commissioner Harley Anderson will  see this work is done.  Air'flo  l  u  n  Provides ample heat for all  cooking needs, a cozy  kitchen and lots of hot water.

This is the puzzle which Dr  Robert Fisher jof Bainsville,  Out., is attempting to unravel  in a research project at Mac-  donald College, under a C-l-L  fellowship.  Instead  of killing flies, the  young entomologist raises and  cares for them as  carfully  as  if they were prize livestock torn ake certain they are uniform  in  size,   and   sturdy   and  vigorous.  This primary research,  states an article in C-I-L Oval,  was  aimed  at  finding out  to  what  part  of  the  fly's   body  DDT should be applied to be  most   effective.   In   preparing  ,?his   flies   for   the   tests,    Dr  Fisher    first    anaesthetized  them. They  were then placed  in   groups   of   five   on    glass  slides   and   held  in  place  by  cellulose   tape.    Holes   in the  tape made   it   possible   for  a  single   leg,    the  head  or  any  part of a fly's body to be exposed to a speck  of DDT. In  some  cases  a  minute  flap   of  skin  was   raised   and   an  inoculation made underneath.  While   Dr Fisher    has   not  made public all the- results of  his  experiments,  he  has  definitely established that a fly's  feet are not the most effective  points of entry for the insecticide; but that the nearer-the  head the  chemical is  applied,  more killing power it seems to  have.  The skin also  seems to'  have    somth'ing    to    do    with  making DDT, effective but the ���  flies  under the   skin  did  not  die from the chemical's effects.  Having made these findings,  Dr   Fisher   will    attempt   to  establish    why    flies    become  resistant to DDT ��� knowledge  that  is hoped will  contribute  to  the development1 of superior fly sprays.

A 55,000 gallon water   tank will   be   built on  the Rocky  Road, close to the present 23,000 gallon storage.  More than 660 water connec  tions will have to be made  provided all potential connections in the village are made.  There are now 338 water  connections  in  Gibsons.  Wooden pipe is inferior to  that of a few years ago and is  approximately the same cost  as east iron.  Installation of cast iron may  be slightly more expensive  than that for wooden pipe.  These are a few of the facts  appearing for the first time  following receipt of a report  from Consulting Engineer G.  S. Conway, aftermath of the  engineer's survey of this area.  It is in this report that the  village commission based the  pending $50,000 byjaw.  According to Mr. Conway it  is hardly likely that a new  water supply will be necessary  "for* a few years." He urged  utilization of the present pump  house facilities.  There will be 8,000 feet of  distribution mains in the village following installation Of  the proposed system.  It is proposed to run a six  inch feeder line from the corner of Rocky Road and Fletcher to the N.E. corner of  block D. Six four inch lines  will now, or in the future, be  tapped off this main.  Machine digging of the proposed trenches was also advocated.  The report was read to a  delegation of interested persons from the Board of Trade  and Ratepayer's Association,  at a special meeting of Village  Council, Tuesday.  If village decides on wooden  pipe, the engineer said, the  work should be turned Over to  Clerk Robert Burns for supervision. If cast iron is decided  upon, then the work should be  given to a qualified contractor.  The- village based all its figures and costs in order to plan  the bylaw on wooden pipe.  In discussing water sources  at the meeting, Commissioner  James Hall warned that water  supply was in .short demand.  Mrs. Nestman, chairman of  the commission, and Clerk  Robert Burns both denied this  allegation. "We have always  had plenty of water," Mrs.  Nestman said. "All it needed  was clearing of the inlet.'  Victoria Letter  Confuses Village  >?  "This  is the height  of ambiguity." y  In this manner did Commission  Chairman  Mrs.  E.   Nestman  dismiss  the  latest  letter  of advice from the Department  of Municipal Affairs, Victoria.  The   letter-   which  no  commissioner     could    understand,  advised  tihat  councils   should  not request permission to  dip  into reserve funds on the same  year that the money had been  set  aside.   Commissioner  Macnicol  pointed  out,  "money  is  not set aside in reserve unless  it is spare money and if it is  spare money in the year we set  it aside, why should we want  to spend it that year? I don't  get''it."  USE THE COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIED  Ancient Species  Rabbits and opossums are  probably tlie most ancient of  the living known mammals on  this   continent.
