Village Commissioners are viewing with suspicious eye^-
latest proposal from the Department of Public works that it-
will resurface and repair the Bay—Franklin road at a total cost-
of $,3110.
The department had recent--
ly flatly  turned down an ap~
proximate   $4,000   offer  made'
by A. E. Ritchey m answer-le
a call for tenders for the work-'
which  will  renovate the present trail from V/ardil's Corner
to   the  point   where   the   Bay
Road,    intersects    the    (Sower
Point R-'.ad.
In iis letter to the Village,
the department said the controversial road would be clas--
sified as secondary until the?-'
new work was completed when:
it would be turned over-to-the-'
Village. It would then be completely a village responsibility..
Classification as secondary-
means-the village would share-
the cost "on a 50-50 basis.""

Wharf Parking Js
Again Confused
Another confusing monkev
wrench has appeared in the
works of clearing the Gibsons
wharf approach of parked
James Sinclair, in a recent
letter, informed- the Commission tihat Black Ball Ferry,
with ?Msanager George Frith in
charge,. would very probably
be given authority over the
wharf and the approach.
Mr. Sinclair assured the
commission that once, Black
Ball had taken over the ap- t
proach and the wharf, the
traffic would undoubtedly be
taken care of. .,
Village fathers, long objecting to vehicle parking on the
approach, will request they be
notified of all agreements between the ierry company and
the Department of Transport.
Said Commission Chairman
Mrs. Nestman, ""We' are" vitally
interested in any agreement
that affects the wharf and its
transport. Transportation ha^
become a major problem in the
village'. .We just have to stay
on top of the pending proposals."
Mr. Morton, superintendent
of the federal Department of
Public Works, recently took a
hand in the discussion when
he arbitrarily ruled, out park-,
ing on the wharf.
Police have been enforcing
the "No Parking" signs on
the wharf proper but have not
taken action against ferry vehicles parked m the approach.
R C.M.P. claim there is no
"clear cut. rule to. follow."

SECHELT. — Issuing of ve-
hide licenses, long the bane oi
Peninsula  residents,   has  been*
In order to "cooperate with
the public," the local detachment of R.C.M.P. has announced that licenses will be issued
daily except Saturday and
Sunday between the hours of
9 a.m. to 12 noon.
This is the first time that'
residents have ever known
who.was supposed to issue the
licenses and when they were
to be issued.
•So great has been the confusion that several persons,
early this year, were fined for
not having car licenses displayed immediately following
the deadline.
?Fines were refunded by
order of the Attorney General's office.
.''■ "Now that we "know where ;
and when," said one of the
persons who had been fined,
"we can avoid all this hard
feelings and confusion. The
R.C.M.P. in Sechelt are to be
congratulated on' their clear
cut way of doing business."
Harley Anderson Quits
The Village Commission
There will be three vacancies more in the village commis-
ion following resignation of   Commissioner   Harley   Anderson
during Tuesday's meeting of the Commission.
Mrs. E. Nestman and
Hall both have terms1 expiring
in December.
Mrs.  Nestman,   so far,   has
been the only person to offer
her services to the community
'for two more years.
Mr. Hall has not signified
his position.
Ratepayers Association, at
a recehi meeting nominated a
committee charged with finding nominees for election.
It is known that many have
refused to run. George Marsden, committee member pointed out it was the duty of persons interested in their community 4o offer themselves for
the position.
Mr. Anderson gave as his
reason for resignation, which
was accepted with regret by
the Village Commission, the
state of his health and heavv •
Mr. Anderson had been
chairman of the Building and
Sanitation Committee.
He had also recently been
working on compiling a garbage bylaw. One committee
meeting has been held on this
important, question.     >
Resignation of Mr. Anderson
will mean that one term to be
filled  will   be    for   one   year
The other two vacancies
for two year terms.
The Village will request the-
depariment to send a. profile:

JBert Haekett was a gentleman of the oldlchool and, as he  swent Ms way through life, he left little spots of brightness.  lit was nice to talk to Bert. His was the quiet personality  rthat made each person think that he or she, at that particular  Tjoonment was a good friend.  When he worked for Union Steamship as resident manager,  "jhe 3iad to make many decisions that hurt the other fellow. It  ���was well known that JBert would sooner have taken the hurt  jfotimself.  As People !s Warden in church, Bert Hacketfi; was in his  jjroper place. Ever thoughtful and pleasant, he was never too  ijfonsy to give a kindly word or helping hand. Each man, woman  .-and child in Sechelt and surrounding district was a friend of  ?Berfc's. Nationally or creed mattered not to this mild mannered  jnaiL  JNTewcomers were made to feel at home and his personal in-  ilsence was the means of many getting their roots dug deep  .into the Sechelt Peninsula.  With his death, the Sechelt Peninsula lost a friend.  fThe Sechelt community will look long to replace him.  .In his going >it can be fcruly said, "a gentleman passes."  lest we forget  On Sunday, November 11, as we have .done for many years,  we shall meet again to pay homage to the men who have died in  ��)iir wars. We shall pay lengthy tributes regarding their courage, the place they occupy in our memories and.'the world which  they made safe for freedom, liberty and democracy.  Pine sentiments, lofty thoughts and inspiring words,  But what of the 'thousands of veterans of the 1914-18 fracas  .who will be taking part in that observation?  jMany of 'them that,morning will awake in a small poverty-  ridden room, will arise slowly, nursing old wounds, gather together a few scraps which they call breakfast, pin their service  .ribbons on their worn lapels and go forth to join their comrades  in a long march to the locale of their varied ceremonies.  We would like, during the silence, to properly probe their  .^nhids. We would like to know what they think and what they  if eel. as they listen to some person, far^removed from the horror  ��� ofvw^a-r, implore us to remember the glorious dead.  :PP.^E&Ty AND ENGRATITUDE  'r.���  'Glorious in death they are, but where are the glories' of the '  living?  What of the man who! suffered, the men who marched right  to the very gates of hell, the men who carried the cross through  the blood-drenched fields of Flanders and who returned to a  moment's gratitude and to long years of misery, unemployment,  poverty and rank ingratitude?  These are the men who need and who deserve our sympathy.  ���>v- jSZhe dead are gone. They .are past all agony. They are asleep,  -'*resghii|*g :m fioveign fields where no mortal foe can ever again  : mc>tat Ifihem.. . ' .       ���  The living we have with us and they are now our responsibility. ���  There is no denying that we suffer a definite form of hypocrisy at this season of the year, particularly when the leaders  ^Qiirr nations, of all nations, .are again making plans to send  pillions of the cream of our manhood into |the battle line of  |>lood and .bitterness and pain.  jSYhy do we. continue this self-deception?-Why do we, year  .���after inglorious year, still permit those in authority to hold hu-  jaaan life in-so little regard?  Let us November the 11, take a good look at our conscience  and at what we have done for the veteran and his dependent'.  If we, both here and in Ottawa, feel that all is well with  the veteran, then let us continue to bow ito the men who died.  But should we find in our hearts that all is not well with  ���the "man who lived to give us the proud freedom we now possess, then let us, November 11, vow to help, by means in our  power, the veteran who has given us the chance to remember  5^, peace and quiet. . '  We must honor the dead, but that is not all we owe. We  Jtia^e debt| to the man who returned. November 11" would be a  .good time to renew our pledge to him and his.  In spite of the long dry  summer which denied the new  Elphinstone Junior -Senior  Highschool essential lumber,  and in spite of recent rain, the  building is progressing favorably.     ,  Completely covered with a  new roof, the school's industrial arts shop can be ready  for occupancy "within two  weeks."  It was pointed out that this  does not mean the rooms will  be occupied. Decision to use  the rooms will be made by the  School Board. So far, no clue  has been given to early open-  ning of any part of the build-  ing.  Rough plastering of several  classrooms has now been completed while the electrical fixtures can be hooked up "at a  moment's notice."  Painters are now working,  both inside and outside the  building.  It is believed the building  will be , ready . for complete  occupancy by January.  Readers Right ��  Editor, The News, '..  Sir: ���  ��  May we take this opportune  ity.qf thanking James Sinclair  M.P., for his worthwhile stand  on the question of dependent's  allowance and veteranV pensions.    . ?i  Critics, . in the past of Mr.  Sinclair and his policy, we feel  that this time we should say,  "thank you." There is no  doubt that our member will  back his statement to the public by ah equally strong stand  on the floor of the House.  The Gambier Island and  West Howe Sound- veterans  had often doubted Mr.  Sinclair's position when he  has, in the past, spoken with  one tongue and acted with  another.  We feel sure that our member will this time stand .by his  guns for the good of the many  who need help.  Unit 76,   Army,   Navy  and  Airforce Veterans in Canada.  Francis Drage, J.P.,  President.

Another business starting  feere with our same good wishes is that of Alfie Kenton of  Wilson'Creek. She is opening a  Business Bureau in the office  of the Sechelt Taxi on Porpoise  Bay road. She will give complete "office servicing. She was  one time treasurer for Roberts  Creek Credit Union.  The third one is.that of Ivy  .Colwell,, who has opened a  show card writing' and poster  painting business in tlie Sechelt Taxi building.  Little Geraldine McKissock  had a. birthday recently with  just four candles on the cake.  Happy birthday, Gerry! Helping to celebrate were Judy and  Jeanne' Lawrence, Wendy and  Cheryl Billingsley, Sheila Nelson, Maureen Mc?K?issock, Carol  Webb, Wendy Taylor and  Dean   Robilliard.  Mr. and Mrs. Korgan are  back once more after a holiday on the Prairies.  Mr.    and    Mrs.    Youngman  spent a few days in Vancouver  recently when Mr.. Youngman  ���  was a delegate to the Anglican  Synod.  Mrs. Jen Monrufet is visiting her sister, Mrs. W. Hunter,  so are Mrs. John Monrufet of  Sproat Lake and two children,  Karey and Geoffrey.  St. Hilda's Anglican Church  was owerflowing with worshippers wjho listened to ah  address by the Right*'Reverend  " Goeffrey Gower, Bishop of  New Westminster. An impressive dedication ceremony followed, when a beautiful plaque  and cross in memory of the  beloved Archbishop Adam  DePencier was blessed.  Choir stalls, the work of  Archie Willams, was dedicated  as was a beautiful font, the  work of Thomas Turner. The  craftmanship of these articles  is wonderful. Both are gif|;s of  the church. The Bishop spoke  at length of brotherly,love and  said the twelve lowly deciples  sent out by Christ have built  up a world force which shall  never be defeated.  Following the service, tea  was served in the Parish Hall  when the Bishop met old  friends and made many new  ones.  The   regular  P-TA meeting  was well attended in the  Sechelt    Sehool.     Constable   N.  Cummins    of    the    R.C.M.P.  addressed the meeting on traffic regulations and gave many  pointers  on how to conduct a.  safe and sane Halloween.  We  learned  that  the  left  'side .of  the road is the side on which  to walk, and that children are  forbidden  to  ride   double   on  bikes.   All   bikes  must  carry  lights. .    ��� '  It - was a very interesting  meeting, and was followed by  moving pictures, operated by  R. D. Cooke. New members  were received,- tea was. served  and happy social time followed.  Ben Lang, president was.in  the chair.  One person who really enjoyed the trip to see the Princess Elizabeth was Mrs. Kate  Martin. Reg Hen ton tbok her  in, also Wilma -Nouhia. Mrs.  Martin has seen many Royal  processions in London.

Date .......      �� Signed 8  The Coast News   Thursday November 8  1951  Reader's Right  WATER  VIEWS ON  BYLAW  Editor, The News,  Si*: ���  I would  refer to your  lead  editorial in the Coast News of  this  week,   re  water  pipe   installation.    1  will  not  at this-  time attempt, to correct several  inaccuracies   and   rather  misleading   statements    contained  therein.     I   think  the.  general  picture is fairly well covered,  from   different  angle?,  in   the  excellent letters published from  Mr.   Macnicol   and   Mr.   Rees.;..  in those letters-the urgency pf  early   action,   without  further  delay  by  more   red   herrings  across the trail, and the imperative need to closely consider  proposed expenditure, is quite  clearly   shown,   and  there  ap-  ��� pears   to   be  lillie   reason   to  question   their   basic   assump-,  tions.  Oh the other hand, 1 cannot  agree with  several  statements  and  implications  contained  in  '    the editorial. While there is no  doubt that cast iron pipe has  longer life than 'wood  pipe,  I  do  not believe  that  the  comparative life of the two types,  MEASURED  IN  TERMS  OF  WATER CARRYING CAPACITY,  WHICH IS  WHAT  COUNTS, is fairly reprejented  hy   your,   estimates,   or   even  nearly so. -  Your position seems to be  ithat the Board of Commissioners are not competent- to.  be entrusted with the expenditure of $50,000. Perhaps this  is true. But you advocate entrusting the same body with  the expenditure of a considerably increased Sum!, without'  the few safeguards that apply  to bylaw funds; that is not  logical. But you overlook the  most important consideration  in the whole program.  The selection of a proper  type of material is important,  but in making such selection  there are considerable masses  of records for guidance, and  there is the further fact that  within limits, whatever type is  selected will be worth the  price; and-after all, these,different pipes are made by  rather large corporations operating for many years in a  highly competitive, market.  They must each be giving reasonable value or they would  long since have gone under.  Far greater opportunity for  costly   error,   and   wastage   of  funds, lies in  the handling of  the  whole  job   of  installation  and   construction.   Unless the  whole  job,   the  arranging for  delivery of material to the job��  the    excavating,    pipe-laying,  testing,      back - filling    .a n d  change-over of service is under  the    direction    of    competent  men,   funds   will   be   wasted.  Even under the most able handling, after the job is finished  some" errors   will   have    been  made. But if the job is under  the direction of men who have  little or no  experience  in the  type of construction involved,  little knowledge of the uses..of  equipment   beyond   pick   and  shovel,    small  in  Ariew   cf price,  availability,  and funds provided when the  time  comes to  purchase,  then  it must follow that such Board  will- be   much   less   competent  to   direct  the  much, more   involved   operation   of   installation.    It  muse    further follow  that we, the residents of Gibsons  Landing,    cannot  supply  ourselves with a first essential  of  life ��� WATER. I   cannot  agree   with    that    view.    The  people  of   the Village,   when  much fewer, and -with far less  money   available,   did   supply  themselves wi.h water. Surely  they can continue to do. so.  Robert Burns.  paper tactics. Do not treat  elected representatives of the.  people as if they knew nothing, and the edior of the local  paper 'knew it all.  Forget yellow journalism,  and try and remember that the  freedom of the press is a thing  to be treasured and not destroyed by lack of discretion or  experience.       ���  Robt. Macnicol,  Village Commissioner.  Editor, The News,  Sir: ���  Editor, The News,  Sir: ���   .  1 had not intended writing  a second le.ter to your paper  upon the subject, of the Gibson ;. Wafer Bylaw* but the  half-truths contained in your  editorials , of October 25, and  November 1, make it more  ���than necessary that I should  reply.  What is the situation? You  took a hasty glance at the engineer  experience    in  s- report, listened to a  discussion covering the bylaw,  and as the result of your lack  of knowledge, of this matter;?',  write editorials, in parts misleading, and bordering oh what  is known and detested by  right thinking people* in Canada, as yellow journalism.  Why do you act in this way *?  Is it not possible that your  campaign throughout the year  has been one to discredit the  Village Commission or some of  its members, by fair means or  foul. On more than one occasion you have gone beyond the  bounds of decency in criticising a member of the Commission. This reminds me of a  story: ���    t  ��� A man of the church got  into a motor accident with a  truck driver. The truck driver  used some "very abusive language. The clergyman said,  "My good man, I cannot reply  in your language, but I will  say this: When you gO,home  tonight I hope that your mother will jump out from under  the porch and bite you."  As already stated around  18,000 feet of pipe is involved  in the waterworks job.  You do not mention that of  this total footage, 3,760 feet  is galvanized.  . You do not say that our engineer definitely recommends  3,760 feet of wood pipe be installed because of reasons that  I stated in my last letter.  You do. not make it clear to  the' people that the extra  $7,000 involved only covers  around 8,000 feet of pipe.  You are very careful in the  matter of stressing the $74,000  amount,-no doubt in the hope  that the people will think that  it is' a $74,000 bylaw, and riot  a $50,000-one plus 4y2%.  You are? worrying about the  matter of 'this year's Commission guaranteeing that they  will find this $7,000 in addition to the bylaw amount of  $50,000 in order to install east  iron pipe, yet in the same  breath you state-"that-an engineer told you that he could  ANSWERS TO  "MOTHER"  Editor,, The News,  Sir: ���  May we have space to reply  to "A Mother" who wrote to  y?u last week about the Rob-  . erts Creek dances? She has  many wrong ideas about us  and the Creek dances. Perhaps  , other people are forming er-  ronous ideas/' too, on insufficient information.  'We    go   to   Roberts   Creek  dances ��� not to get drunk or  to "get away" with something  Ave cannot do in Gibsons, but  because) it is  a  central ^oin:t  where   we   meet)   with    teenagers    from    Sechelt,    Wilson  .

We agree with "A Mother"  that there is quite, a bit of (  drinking at the Creek dances,  but so has there, been at the  Gibsons and Sechelt dances,we  have attended. In all cases  most of the drinking has been  done by adults and we are as  concerned as anyone over the  fact that some of our teen-^  agers get liquor. But neither  the amount of their drinking  nor the number who do drink  reach the proportion indicated  by the letter. Certainly a blanket condemnation such as "A  handling   crews   of workmen, 'lay cast iron pipe at the ditch  then the estimates' will be ex- side for less than it would cost  ���hausted with the job not fin- the village for wooden pipe,  ish'ed.   A   good-  illustration- of ���       If , this    statement -is  true,  ;this can be found in the relative efficiency of construction  by even small private concerns  in the district, on the one  hand, and most of our public  efforts on the other.

We are excluded fronV- some, and the  square dances that we may  attend, have'a large number of  either older people or younger  children. We do not oppose  those dances in any way, but  we enjoy our own age group  better.  As for the suggestive remarks concerning girls in  parked cars, we recent such a  slam at our sense of decency  and respectability. We have  morals and respect for the  ��� things our mothers have  taught us, and just as many  teen-agers as adults have the  strength of character to live  up to their morals. We also  respect the law and the police,  and we support enforcement  of the law-among adults and  younth   alike -And   we  don't  see. how 'attending a dance  once a week (often less than  that) makes us "pleasure*mad  youths."  We are not defending any  drinking at the Creek nor anywhere v else on the Peninsula,  and we admit that it does go  on, . but the ��� teen-agers" share  in it is very small and a blanket accusa'tion of teen-agers,  or of any district, will certainly not help to eliminate  the problem. We do not want  condemnation from adults; we  want friendship, and nqw and  then a little genuine help or  advice.  On  Behalf of   the   Gibsons  Teen-agers: ' ^ .

Our answer could be brief  ��� What can we do about it?  Realizing this ��� reply would  hardly suffice without some  explanation, we will explain  ourselves.  There   is    a    saying,   "The  hand   that   rocks the   cradle,  rules  the  world."  Some  parents left off rocking long ago,  and  have  gone  off rollicking  themselves.   In  the   meantime,  the spiritual life of the  child  has    been     sadly    neglected.  Plans   for. advance  education  and  careers   are   being  made,  but  the  most important  part  of their life is^ given little consideration. ��� *���'  A ministers duty is primarily concerned with the spiritual  welfare    of    the    community.
