GRANTHAMS LANDING���-  Mr. and Mrs. John 'William  Patman were in receipt of a  telegram from Buckingham  Palace during the holidays- on  , the occasion of. their diamond  wedding.  Father and mother of Mrs.'  Harry Reichelt, the still young  couple, he is 84 years and Mrs.  Pa'tman is 79, came from Edmonton in 1933 when Mr. Patman retired from the C.N.R.  where he worked in the freight  department.  They were married in London, England, December 23  and celebrated the great event,  60 years later, in Granthams  withfla- quiet at home party of  friends who dropped ,in to see  the happy couple.  They have seven grandchildren and six - great granchil-  dren.  Following their long stay in  Alberta', the legislature of that  province wired them congratulations on the 23rd.  Mrs. H. D. Bertwell, Mrs. II.  Reichelt and Harry Patman  are the 'three' children surviving. One son was killed' on  the Llandovery Castle disaster,  during World War. 1.  Mr. Patman has had a long  and varied career despite his  many years with the one company.' " ^      .  Following -his   arrival  from  England he started one of the  first Athabascan freight services.  appreciation  moved  by Commissioner Macnicol at  the last meeting of the year.  In accepting the thanks,  Commission Chairman, Mrs. E  Nestman pointed out thai  many decisions she had to  make during recent "years ;she  was in office were "hard decisions to make. They always  seemed' to hurt someone for  the good of the community.  These are unavoidably and I  suppose we all have to pay for  government in one way or the  other."  William Skellett, last yea'rV  roacl commissioner, was hand--  ed the most difficult and onerous chair of the year Avhen he'  accepted* the position of water,  commissioner. ��  Robert Macnicol, last year's  chairman of- finance, remains  in that position for another  term.  W.  Boucher  will  take   over  Harley Anderson's old job of  fire, light, building and  sani-  * tation.       ��� ;  It should be a warm year  for commission debate if lasts  night's session was any criterion.  Ex-banker   Boucher,  at   hig-  first  meeting  of  the   commission, let loose with a condemn-  .   atory barra'ge against the long  discussed truck.  He demanded and will. get.  an investigation...of-.the truck  buying and its lack of ' operation.  "This   vehicle   has worked  only  SO hours   to   November  1," he  charged:   "This   work  could have been done for $50.0  whereas it will cost the village  .a great amount  more;''  ? v vHe;poiiitecl; out there will? be  *$1300 depreciation:? against tfter  yehicle^nextv M?ay ;?^??vthai ^tfie  ^$iy(^r%^^^-.^^^y^^^fy  "GIBSONS.;; ���: This village  wa^vfurther enriched by receipt  of a cheque for $4700, part *of  the S.S. and M.A. returns from  the .Provincial.���Government.  ]?n a covering letter thp  minister of finance informed  the council it could plan on  a further $2300 from the same  source     sometime    ?in     June.

Village Asks Victoria  For Bay - Franklin fiinds  The Bay���Franklin Road, long a headache with the village  and the Department of Public Works alike, seems to be no nearer  reconstruction despite recent meetings with department officials  and Road Commissioner William Skellett.  Following disapproval from    ______���__���.���v:;   the village on recent plans forwarded by the -department,  Public Works officials took-  time off to personally inspect  the contentious road -which  was turned over to the village  following  amalgamation.  Findings of both the village  commission and the "engineers  - was hardly in accord* Gibsons  will now ask for ha'lf the recently proposed expenditure  and will attempt to remedy the  rapidly worsening situation on  its" own.  It may. be recalled that A.  E. Ritchey, recently elected  commissioner, with a, bid of  slightly .$4000 for reconstruction of. the highway, was  turned down by the Department as being "too high."  The argument has waged ever  since.  The  government  claims   it  turned down the highway bid  in order to save the village  money. (Gibsons and the Government will split costs.)  The department then came  back with a profile of the  work planned which was turned down by the villagae as  being  entirely ' * inadequate.''  This recent consultation  which has ended in a stalemate, is the last move in the  proposal to surface and widen  and ditch the present "glorified trail," from WardilY  corner, past, the Ritchey residence to where it again;joint  the Grower Point 'road.  Recent? estimates of the- government were for $3100. This  means that the village has  requested half of this sum and  they will take over entire responsibility for the road.  ^ocalv?sandins vhadvto^B^v=��or.��  by private firms this winter;.  and that the garage had to be  still considered in the summing  up. ��� .���-.-    y-yy >- ; -���; ','������'���  Commissioner Macnicol was*'  quick to point out that the  coming of the ferry had  champed the truck picture aawl  Jhat when it was bought the  "whole commission 'with the'  exception of ?Mrs. Nestmam- hadii  voted for it." #  One of the reasons the^ truek-  had been bought wa's to* convey pipe for the new -Water-*  system but the ferry had altered this.

"We have to leave," she said'plaintively, "because we have  to live and a young single girl cannot work in this village.,,'  On a rough check we found that she is quite right. Of the  more than 20 women employed, more or less regularly in Gibsons  stores and offices, 20 of them are married with families. A large  . majority of them: have husbands working.  N It is little wonder that local, single girls cannot get work here  Perhaps when this area wakes up to the fact it; is actually  driving its youngsters out instead of holding them and developing  a young, vigorous community then will, Gibsons grow.  The people of Gibsons are to blame for the younger element  leaving. It ill becomes the Board of Trade and like bodies to weep  crocodile tears about the youth of bur area wandering when they  insist on hiring married women and thereby driving the youth  away. ( ....... .������....  We are' heartily in accord with the sentiments of this young  lady who spoke so feelingly about conditi'ons here.  "Why should anyone with youngsters come to Gibsons |to  live," she asked. "The children will Deforced into the city within  a few years. The older people will be on their own. They should  stay in Vancouver in the first place.''  When next you hire help, vloolf around and giye the opportunity to youth. That is a true investment in the future and will pay  each and all of us dividends.       " '"''���";yy'  Gower   Gleanings  BY GYPSY TOWERS  The harvest this, week is  very poor.

Quillayute it came to  my attention thai many have  "���: the desire to join the Seaman's  International Union.  T was given  to understand  '- that one of the.officers of the  , ship is against the men. joining such a union as he claims-  ~it   is   Communistic.    He  also  made the crew-afraid of their  jobs and they want the union  as a bargaining agent.  This union has been in touch  with this boat and I would  advise the crew to- keep in  touch. v .?  -y-, Robert Lamonfr '  .����� .   The crew of the Quillayute'������  is even now 'negotiating with ,  the  ferry    owners    and  more  than  one   union   with   a   view  to   becoming    unionized.    The'  owners  and  managers   of  the  ferry  are in  accord  with the .  move. It may  be pointed out  that  many  of the   crew   even  : now get higher wages than  they will if a union does come  in following the voted desiiv  of all members. ��� Ed.   Editor, Coast News,.  Sir: ���   ?  Tour    timely    editorial    on  Community   Spirit  was   right  to the point,  and I feel sure  no  doubt   has   inspired  many  '  thoughts along ,the subject.  For several- years there has  been a keen feeling that a hall  ; down in the village is a necessity for small gatherings etc.,  and in the not too distant  future many of us hope to see  : the Municipal Hall enlarged  just' for that purpose.  In the 'meantime there is one  spot available for all resiring  in Gibsons who have a yen for  ; reading;    '/  Through the generosity of  Mrs. E. Nesitm'an, her home is  open'two aftenoons a week  from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., Thursday and Saturday.  This enables the Provincial  Travelling Library to issue  books to those interested.  This Irate been going.on for  eight years' with Dave Donaldson as Librarian. Thh is a  free service as the Department  allows nothing for expenses.  Everyone has the privilege  of enjoying, it, provided books  are taken? care of and returned  on ��� due date. There is a good  selection of both fiction and  nonaction, and what could be  better than a good book for  spare moments.  . The records show that some  2,500 volumes have been issued  during the last year.  This aljl ^has been possibly  through the efforts of these  two folks and a small interested group.  -,   With   the    Season's    Greetings!  ��� Subscriber  SluCGfyb  ^  New Government >  Unit Urged By Loggers  Should the present, provincial Department of Lands, and  Forests be separated-'into two f  divisions,   each   with   is   own  cabinet minister? That it  one...  of the questions which will be"  debated at The Truck Loggers'  Association ninth  annual convention, in Vancouver, on January 16, 17 and 18.  "In our early .history, when  forestry was relatively unim-  *. portant, the union of the Department of Lands and Forests  was a: logical one," says Association president J. W. Baikie.  "With;,the expansion bf our  provincial economy, over the  years, the problems of administration have become more  acute. There' is a belief that  the operation of these two  complex divisions should be  separated for greater efficiency. The appointment, in recent'  times, of two deputies to the  Department of Lands , and  Forests indicates that the next  logical step would be the sep~  arat-ion of these two divisions, ���  each with its own' cabinet  minister,"  Baikie  concludes.
