Bridge  and Dredge Company'who had  been hired as a road maintenance man in the pulp x and  paper town.  The jury found that no  blame was to be attached to  anyone.  According to evidence given  at the inquest: presided by  Coroner Dr D. T. R. McColl,  the deceased was first seen as  he was thrown from beneath  the wheels of the lift truck.  The vehicle,, stid Supervisor  Andrew Brown,? could hardly  have been travelling vmore  than three or four miles per  hour.  Neither the driver of the  fatal vehicle or Richard Mal-  ley, lift truck operator, driving a vehicle immediately behind Mallinis's vehicle saw  the man prior to his being  struck.  The dead man resided at  1128 Granville Street, Vancouver.  members attended  the recent meeting of the  "Women's Institute at the home  of Mrs. A. E. Ritchey. Three  visitors were also welcomed.

Owners, according to council, will have two weeks in  which to acquire the proper  licenses.  Approval of the proposed  water bylaw, in relation to its  bearing on. the health of the  people, was given in a letter  to the Village Commission by  Dr G-. F. Amyot,, deputy minister of health.  The letter warned that care  must be taken to protect, the  purity of the water at both  present sources.  "Further consideration  ! should be given to protection  of the. main and auxiliary  sources," Dr Amyot said.'  Drage Returned As  School Rep Again  GAMBIER HARBOfR. ���.

'' Without the efforts; of Cap-  tain Drage, many or the  islanders would be; in dire  straits and' without.?jhelp."

And are well worthy of anything we can do for them."  Unless Black Ball Ferry gets control of Gibsons wharf,  parking on the approaches seem doomed.  Hints that no parking rules, held in abeyance, will be enforced within a shore time, was received by Village Cornmis-  missioners from James Sinclair, M.P.  Mr. Sinclair said, "he was  most disturbed to hear that a.  parking problem had developed ij] Gibsons."   ���  "    .  His promise he would "immediately bring' this to* the  attention of the * Department  of Transport," brought comment from the village that  "this should bring the parkv-  ing situation  to   a   head."  Mr. Sinclair had been sent a'  copy of a letter from the village to the 'Department of  Transport, and the federal-  government of Public Works,  deploring present parking- arrangements on ihe  wharf.  The   M'.P.   pointed   out   that  appointment     of    Black    Ball  Ferries as wharfinger or lessee'  of   the   wharf  would   help  to  alleviate   the present  problem.

Trustee Norman Hough promised the meeting that he "will  work as hard as I can to promote a playground for children  He also assured that a land-  ? ?  ing float would be installed at  the school portion of the  beach, "in the very near future."  "I will   try  and  send   the  maintenance man here in order  to   improve  the  trails 'to  the  school," the   trustee 'reported.  Mr. Harding suggested' digging a well in order to supply  the   school Avith  water.   "We  could find water within a few  yards of the school," he said.  Children  are now forced to  drink    water    from a nearby  stream "that is used as a bathing beach  by  dogs  and  other  animals."  Ratepayers on the Island,  perturbed at the length of  time it has taken to install a  landing float" at the school,  "will write to James Sinclair  to see if things can't be speeded up."  Mr. Hough assured that the.  "cheque for installation of the  landing is now on its way to  Ottawa."

"Ten children have to play,  on the rocks when school is  out," Mr. Hough reported.  "This is hardly good enough.  I am going to suggest the  Board send the maintenance  man there to look into the  whole mater and bring back  a report."  Question of lighting the new  Niesen hut was also taken up  at the meeting.

'Commissioners are going ahead with the idea of  wood pipe "unless we can buy and install cast iron pipe at the  same price."  The village does not intend to compare results. It does not  ���intend to base its plans on anything other than wood pipe costs.  :If cast iron costs a few dollars more, despite the fact it is practically guaranteed   for 100 years   and wood pipe for 15 or 20  -years, then it will be wood pipe.  Village Commissioners are v adamant that their present  .-findings are correct and have decided this is the rule they will  .abide by.  The Coast News, faced with a serious doubt and cognizant  >of the needs of this village, interviewed one of the best authorities in the business.  A qualified civil engineer having more than 40 years experience with some of the largest water installation plans in the  ���west and with' record of advice to municipalities on this very  same subject, this-man scorned "the very suggestion there'was  any comparison between the two TAKING- INTO CONSIDERATION GIBSONS FINANCIAL STANDING AND PECULIAR  .POSITION. v  G. S. Conway, a civil engineer of some repute (British  rPacific Properties), suggested cast, iron pipe to the commis-  :-sioners. ���  Mr. Conway had made the survey here and was well aware  ���of every facet of our situation.  In his written advice to the village, Mr. Conway urged cast  iron pipe for the mains.  The Commissioners claim they talked it over-'with Mr. Con-  >vay and he agreed on wood.  VHis written findings do not bear this out.  "Commissioners claim they will switch to cast iron provided  fhey can buy it for a price within the bylaw, after the bylaw  passes.  That is not good enough. This village, faced with many  years growth and a bill for $74,000 should not have to guess at  -what the commissioners are going to do. *  This paper urged, in a past issue, passing of the bylaw  ���provided the village had nothing to do with spending the money.  ?We urp;e caution in this now. Tt appears too much will be left'  ^to chance. Too much will be left to the whim and fancy of this  ^CQmni.i^iotL. :  "We need the water system renovated, that is true. "We need  it {lone a�� so-n as possible. But we do not need 7;k done at the  cost of $74,000 for fifteen or twenty years when we can get it  done for'the same money or. av Mr. Conway told them, "within  $7,000 of the cost of wood pipe," for 100 years.  When faced with this question of why this wood versus  iron was not brought up months ago, thereby saying the work  done on two readings of the present bylaw, we would point out  "rfha't ���tlie only time any of the public, including the press, were  allowed to find out what the engineer had advised was on October 16  (Tuesday).     .   .  Following their usiftil practise- of telling nothing, not even  to-the chairman, the various committees now find themselves in  the position of being criticized. *  We will be abused for a.i'ain attacking the village commission.

But as long as this commission, long noted for its wrong  -manottverings, takes the bit in its own unqualified teeth, then  we predict the bylaw will fail.  We even suggest it should fail unless reason prevail.  $74,000 is too much to fool around with. We have paid for  expert advice.

Sir:  I see by   the   October 11th  issue  of the Coast News that  you are again at war with the  Village  Commission, this time  in connecion with enforcement  of traffic regulations etc.  - Perhaps if you were a little  more  courteous  and   tolerant,  and less abusive in your comments  upon   Village   Commission   activities,    people  would  pay   more   attention   to;  what.  you have to say in those matters.    ' 4  Traffic comes under the  jurisdiction of the Roads  Commissioner. The present  Village Bylaw was written in  the year 1949, and not by the  present Commission. Any minor changes in the matter of  regulation, including erection  of signs, have been'made with  the cooperation of the police  authorities who are called  upon to enforce the law.  On September 25th a Board  of Trade deputation urged  some change in parking regulations and a curb upon undue  speeding On the arterial highway���Sechelt Rd. We told the'  deputation that any change in  parking .regulations would be  included in a new traffic. bylaw to be written in the near  future to cover ferry traffic  etc., and also passed a resolution, in good faith, asking  police to enforce Provincial  and Village regulations, which  of course, included more, strict  supervision of speeding on  Sechelt Road. We were fair  enough to admit that we were  short of police staff in Gibsons, but this is a matter for  Provincial authorities to deal  with.  As at September 25th, I  know of no official communication being placed before the  .Commission, this year, in regards to difficulty in, enforcing the law in Gibsons in so  far as regulations may be concerned.  ��� It is true, that in the Provincial sphere, some trouble  has arisen in connection 'with  consolidation of traffic regulations, and this matter will be'  discussed with the RCMP and  the Dept. of Public Works  when, a bvla.w is written to  take care of new traffic development in Gibsons Village.  The offer of the local Constable was not spurned, as you  term it, but in view of the recent proposal of the police  authorities '' t h a t Gibsons  write its own bylaw covering  ail roads in thi?-Village,J' the  local Constable willj be " called  into conference when it is  finally decided wliat' route the  ferry traffic will take in passing through ^Gibsons.  ifobert Maenicol.  Village Commissioner.  <-*7i46<r<O/0 ��� ��ft*v    ��  Much Ado  BY  CHERRY . WHITAKER  THIS COLUMN is for the  benefit of anyone who pays  school taxes, who lives in the  district where they pay those  taxes, and who did not attend  the annual meeting. The rest  of you can take a holiday ���  you know what I'm talking  about already.  The Sechelt. School District  No. 46, Annual Meeting, Sechelt, Tuesday, October 16,  8 p.m.  To this annual meeting came  four school trustees, the school  board secretary, the school  representative and the district  school inspector. Their purpose in attending being to  present the minutes of the  1950 annual meeting, the 1951  report, to elect a representative for the coming year and  to answer any questions that  the body of the meeting might  .care to ask.  It was interesting. It is always interesting to hear.how  someone else is handling the  money you have authorized  them to spend.  The ��� report stated that the  district enrollment is now 928,  an increase of 108 pupils over  last year. The Sechelt area has  193 pupils, 63 of whom will  attend Gibsons High when it-  is completed. .  The dental care program for  Grade 1, 2 and 3 is being carried on by Doctors Bullen and  McEwan ��� with possibility of  extending that care to Grade  4 pupils this year.  The building project authorized by the ratepayers of? the  district is nearing completion.  (No one had the heart to ask  the board members what revi-  sion'of original plans they had  to make in order to stay within their budget.)  Last year's representative  was re-elected, a few questions  asked; a vote of thanks extended to the Board and Secretary, and the meeting adjourned at 9.45 p.m.  AH very right and very proper and duly reported. There  just happens to have been one  big   thing,, wrong   with   that  meeting. Only seven people  turned out. Seven people with  the interest and courtesy to  turn out . to listen to seven;  other people report on the affairs of their school district.  To this seven, fell the task  of accepting last year's minutes, this year's report, electing this year's representative,  and voicing suggestions regarding the area. Seven out of  some 300 voters.  Last year and the year before, when pocketbooks had to  be unzipped, the average attendance was about 65���which  considering the vital part' a  school plays in the community  ��� was nothing to boast about.  But'SEVENIII if the School  Act Required a quorum, the  annual meeting of the Sechelt  school area would have been  a dead pigeon. That it didn't  die of sheer respair was .due  solely to the courage of seven  people who refuse to bow down  under . discouraging odds and  the willingness of seven others  to help them get on with a job.  This meeting was advertised ; Posters in the post-  office, a paid ad iu this paper  and a news article on the front  , page. All in plenty of time.  Short of individual notiees and  a town crier, I fail to see what  more . we require from our  .school trustees by way of reminding us that each- and every  fall they come to us to report  on our schools.  9 These people take their jobs  seriously. They wbrk hard and  put themselves to endless  personal. inconvenience to carry On with a job that at the  best of times is non-productive  of the gratitude of the public.  It seems little enough to ask  that we attend a meetmg once  a year to see how they are  getting along. They, may reason that because we don't turn  out that we are quite satisfied,  and this is true to?,'a certain  extent, because the walls 'always bulge whenever there is  something nasty to say. But,'  it must be disheartening to be  on the receiving end of a deep,  dark silence regarding a year's  work.

Registration in  Security Urged  VICTORIA. ��� With registration for Old Age Security  payments entering its third  month there are some 20,000  eligible British Columbians  who have not yet applied, according to W. R. Bone, regional director of Old Age Security, and based on an estimate  from the Dominion Bureau of  Statistics. It is pointed, out  that while payments do not  commence until January, 1952,  it is advisable for all persons  who intend to apply to take  this action immediately as in  many cases where proof of age  is difficult to secure a considerable amount of correspondence is necessary before  eligibility  is  established.  Applications also are being  accepted from persons of sixty-nine and one-half years of  age and over. It is expected  that    forthcoming    legislation  will provide that in these cases  payment will begin in the  month folloAvi'ng that in which  their seventieth birthday occurs. In all cases, it is requested that when the applicant is  in possession of proof of age,  these documents accompany  the registration form.

Following ��� is    his   reply   to  Robert Macnicol, /.one commander of the  Legion.  "My Secretary brought for-  \vard your letter of September  25.  asking my support for an  increase   in   the   basic   rate   of  ���disability    pensions   and    war  veterans allowances.

FEDERATION OF TRADE & INDUSTRY  I  ���  I  ���  \  1  k  1  I  ��� The Coast News    Thursday October 25 1951  OTTAWA, Oct. 19 ��� Canada will be snared in a maze of  rationing, red-tape regimentation and ruinous subsidy payments if price controls are .adopted now. Moreover, even this  will fail to defeat inflation.  That was the argument to  Parliament. Thursday of James  Sinclair (Coast Capilano), Parliamentary assistant to Finance Minister Douglas Abbott.  A thunderous ovation from  all sides of the Commons  chamber climaxed Mr. Sinclair's speech, unusual in the  humdrum debates this session.  The ovation lasted more than  two minutes.  There was little doubt that  the speech , advanced  Mr.  Sin-  . clair another rung up the ladder in his climb toward a cabinet post.  Inflation World-Wide  It is likely that Mr. Abbott  will not enter the Throne-  Speech debate, which has centred largely around the high  cost of living theme, and that  Mr. Sinclair's speech is the  government's answer to critics of government policy on  inflaton.  Mr. Sinclair quoted extensively from his observations  this summer at the United  Nations Economic Council  meeting in Geneva and his  studies in London of Labor m  policy in administering price  controls, rationing and subsidies?  All 55 nations represented  at' Geneva were experiencing,  inflation he said. No country  could conquer inflation, by  itself, but "all countries can  d�� so if they make a determined  effort."  "No   country   in   the   Avorld-  today has a better record for  fighting inflation at home than  has Canada," he said.  There is no shortage of consumer goods in Canada today,  he said. But government statistics showed that since 1939  the money supply has increased tAvo and a half times, Avhile  actual production has increased only twice.  Therefore, "Ave have an excess of purchasing power in  Canada." The $1,700,000,000  being spent on defense is not  the only big spur to Canada's ���  inflation, he said.  Kitimat Forces  Up Prices  iiixemng even more pressure  to sliove up prices and Avages  is a "lantastic flood of capital investment into Canada,"  reaching probably $4,500,000,-  000 this year. He cited how >  the Kitimat development, of  the Aluminum Company of  Canada is driving up prices of .  material and AA>ages in British  Columbia.  ' To beat inflation "every  economist of repute in the  western world" is urging that  excess purchasing poAver be  cut down.  Thte meant heavy income  taxes, and paradoxically,-commodity taxes also in times of  rising prices. The latter would  discourage spending and encouraging saving.  Also    necessary    are    credit  curbs, to prevent- spending in n  large -and unnecessary amounts  by individuals and business.  Finally. government also  must cut doAA7n on spending.  NO.'feASY SOLUTION'  "P-' thet'e wevp airy easy  .e^irtfinu of inflation, ore of  the 55 governments assembled  v(a't Geneva) would have found  it  >>  He continued.  "In every country every  Chancellor of the Exchequer,  every minister of finance,  Avbether he be a Liberal or  Conservative or a Socialist ���  or even a Communist ��� is  mailing the same appeal to his  j>eople.  "He is making the appeal  to spend less, to save more and"  to produce more, and this, of  course, does get back to the  very root of the problem.   .  "As for pri'ce control, the  government would adopt it  and subsidies if it were  thought it could work," said  Mr.  Sinclair.  Today Avas different from  war-time with its, gigantic taxation program, forced savings  and rationing. These had made  price controls possible.  Noav it Avas also necessary  to develop social services and  expand opportunities for capital investment.  BRITISH EXAMPLE  He cited Britain as an ex-  ample of Avhat happens Avhen  price controls are retained,  these had forced government  into the food business and to  continue   rationing.  "But the real strain in  Britain today is caused by the  subsidy," he continued.  "Subsidies do match, for a  period, the higher prices of  imports  of domestic goods.  "As long as you can keep  increasing your subsidies, you  can hold your cost of living  index fairly level."  CANT GO ON SPENDING  "But the point must come,  as it comes in every subsidized  state, Avhere you cannot go on  spending."  Then he cited Britain's experience Avhen subsidy costs to  keep dOAvn food prices were  cut back from 480,000,000  pounds annually to 410,000-  000 pounds.  When the trade unions asked the government last month  to stabilize the cost, of living  by further subsidies, the an-  SAver Avas tfyat these Avould cost  another 600,000,000 pounds a *  year. Therefore it could not be  done, said Mr. Sinclair.  That had caused the trade  unions to decide to ask for  another   round   of   Avage   in  creases.  "In the last six months the  actual rise of the subsidized  cost of ��� living in Britain is  sharper than the rise of the  food index Avould have been if  there had been no subsidies,"  he argued.  'BUREAUCRACY/  RED TAPE  "Their experience has proven and economists have always  said that while price controls,  rationing   and   subsidies may  for a time mask the effect of  world-wide   inflationary  pressures, in the end the breaking  point com.es.  "When that breaking point  comes you have not. only got  the problems of a free economy, but also on your back  you have this, vast load of  government bureaucracy, red  tape, regimentation . and rationing and all the other-  things we know so well from  our experience in the second,  world war."

A wide choice of broader-  breasted turkeys with more  white meat is the result of the  first season's selective breeding control through electronics  it was reported.  The electronic controls actually do a better job of protection hatching eggs than the  turkey hen, according to turkey breeders.

You can't look ahead and say,  " This is  going to  be  a  good  .year,"  or ''This  won't be so  good." The weather and market conditions and many other  factors influence the farmer's  profit right up to the last.  That's why the far-sighted  farmer plans his finances as  ���carefully as he plans his crops.  When; things ; are going well  he sets aside as much as he  can of his profits, with which  to buy in due course more  livestock or better equipment,  ��� and modernize his farm. Or he  " keeps the money as a reserve  fund against emergencies.  It all4 adds up to the recognition that farming needs capital, too. One of the best ways  to build such capital is tp  establish a savings account at  the Bank of Montreal. When  produce cheques are not needed for immediate expenses,  there's   no   better   place   for  ' them\t'han a B of M savings  account. Pay a ��� call soon on  Tom Larson, manager of the  local branch. From his many  year s-experience, he can give  you helpful advice on the best  way to go about your farm  financing.     ..

Cheese Gauge  For Canadi  Thursday October 25 1951    The Coast News  9  No one phase of industry in  this country better illustrates  the economic and population  changes, that have taken place  in Canada within the past 75  years than does our cheese industry. At one time our leading .commodity in the export  market,^shipments abroad have  shrunk to almost token  amounts, which this year may.  be balanced by imports. From  almost a negligible, position as  a domestic food used by Canadians cheese sales here have  steadily advanced until today  Canadians are eating well over  60 million pounds yearly.  Before the turn of the ;cen-  tury a cheese factory was to  be found at almost every important crossroads in old Ontario and in Quebec. Hundreds  of others were scattered  throughout the other provinces.- Making cheese, or providing the milk for cheese, was  the big rural industry- In fact,  it. was the only method of  using and keeping surplus  milk as the fin can had yet to  be invented and most butter-  was home made. In one momentous year Canada exported  over 200 million pounds of  cheese ��� it was our chief  product in world markets until wheat came along.  Times have changed. Canada  acquired greater population,  pasteurization and process  milk were invented and cheese,  as an export, commodity, gradually lost its attractiveness to  Canadian dairymen. This year  it is doubtful if much more  than 12 to 15 million pounds  will go overseas, and some-*  where near tha't amount will  be imported. But cheese is still  maiiufaetured By the millions,  of pounds in Canada, in more  modern plants with the finest  of equipment. The big difference today rs that most cheese  made in Canada is eaten by  Canadians. In fact, it has become one of the favorite foods  of this country. "Cheese Festival", during the month of  October, is being sponsored to  stimulate an even greater appreciation of this fact.
