Parr-Pearsoii, >:" will /not make  any united effort against, the  requested increase. We feel  that the rlequest is probably  reasonable,'' he said. : " The  trend - of transportation costs  is upward and our' roads, Avith  the poor passenger, per mile  rating of the btvses would  naturally force prices up."  Gibsons and District Ratepayer 's Association named R.  Macnicol, W. Hodgson and W.  Boucher as a committee to  investigate the proposed.. increase. It is expected objection .  will come from this source.  Final shape of the?action to  be taken by this unit will be  made tonight at a general  meeting of the Association  when the committee will make  its report and suggestions.  One member of the committee  pointed   out.  that  the  increase  would  force   prices  up"  for   Gibsons   residents.    '' The '  increase,    if    granted,   would  leave  Gibsons   people   having  to pay  more for. the ride  to  Vancouver,   from     Horseshoe  Bay with  our   own   coihpany  than  it; will cost with Pacific ���?  Stages.   The next ? thing that  will happen is that P.S.L. will  apply   for    another    increase,  based on the tariff allowed our ,  company,'' the spokesman said.  "This will leave everyone else,/  up and down the Howe/Sound  to pay. inereeased fares."  Gibsons Village Commission  is already on record as oppos-  ing tlie new increase, haying  made ho increase and no lessening of service one of the stipulations imposed when grant-,::  ing tentative approval to the?-  bus-ferry service, last year- "  Return fares are based on  180 per cent of two fares at  the moment.

Said Mr. Lawrence, "There  is nothing underhanded about  increasing fares by reason of  imposing single fares.. Economics enters into this business  justv as, it does in any other.  With increased costs and lower .  passenger lists we just have to  have the increase to stay in  business. It is very-simple and  elementary."  ��� _ Gibsons Board of Trade, according to Local Affairs Committee Chairman Locke  Knowles,  "will  not' object  to  ,the application.1  >>  Sergeant Heads  Timers Institute  Norman Sergeant was reelected president, of the Howe  Sound and District Fanners'  Institute at the annual meeting, Monday. .;..  /.'.v.;-0ther v ;:olficers ? vinfipdc ISv  Clarkson, vice president, and  delegate to the Victorian Order  of Nurses; Mrs. : M.

Poultry Club  Preparing For  <y   .    <  Even Now  Showing  The ��unshine Poultry Club bids well to being bigger and  better this year, beating even its own record of last year, according to Club Adviser Ed Smith.  . "We hope to have competition coming in from Fraser  Valley and way points when  next we' show at the fair," he  said; ���������'.-������.'  , It may,-be" recalled'that- the  Club'was outstanding with its  entries in the Pacific National  Exhibition.  "We Jiope to have birds  competing from the- 'U.B.C.,'"  Mr. Smith said. "Professor E.  A.

The cjub, handicapped by  lack of information, range far  and, wide in its quest for  knowledge. Latest source is  the ; Canadian Balnk of Commerce .in Toronto which sends  literature   and   the   latest re  ports to the unit.  Hint!? that a new strain of  bird may be shown next year,  came from Mr. Smith. "We  have a surprise in store for  fanners," he .said. "Just wait  until you see the new, heavy  table bird we show next 3-ear."  ��� Ill        II I���-.  I.-   ��������� I.

Fire Truck  Is Revolutionary  It wasn't a gag when the  town of Port Mellon sent Ea'st  for a fire truck with a water  stretcher.  It is the first community in  Canada to receive a dandy red  fire wagon with ai new attachment which makes one gallon  of water do the work of three.  Th e revolutiona ry "' water  stretcher" is called ' a wet  Avater proportioner. It consists  of a glass jar arrangement on  ihe side of the pump, containing a "wetting" chemical  which breaks down the surface tension of water.  As a result the 400-gallon  tank 0n the $40,000 truck will  be equal to a 1200-gallon tank  O]] an ordinary truck.  The increase in capacity will  be of great benefit in fighting  fires, according io the truck  designer, Fred Stevens, purchasing agent for Canadian  Forest Products "Ljd.  ;���* vAnd'that's?n��t?;the;t^G^:^^  only claim to fame.   .

Andrew  Johnston, head of the McKenzie Liberals is in Vancouver  today taking part in the formulation of Liberal policy at a.  convention of party stalwarts.  "This is the provincial conference which may give a clue  to the^ future of party politics  in B.C.," Captain Johnston  said. "I am not p a: position  to even hint as to what may-  happen with our marriage to  the Conservatives," he answered when* asked. "There is  . something in the. wind but it  may be just a reafirmation of  our present way of doing  business for all I know."  The popular magistrate will  also take this opportunity of  visiting with Mrs. Johnston  who has been sick in Vancouver    and    is    expected    home  soon.  -~? ;   : "  Sechelt Barbepe  Opens For Trade  SECIIELT. ��� Roman and  Mrs. Liste, both well known  in the culinary world are new  proprietors of the  Barbeque.  " We intend to keep the same  name, Mrs. Liste, who has had  a wide experience, in restaurant  and cafe life, said. "Only there  will, be a difference, we actually intend to specialize in bar-  bequed meats and chicken."  "Mr.Liste, who will act as  chef, Ss- probably one of the  finest camp cooks in the. coun-  Gwests of  Wlilson, several Gibsons per*'  sons made an impromptu and  unscheduled inspection of the'  $293,000 building which has  many added features and rate��  many new added features ana?  rates among the finest in B.C,  work in this building is far  and above that of ordinary  lumber. Only the finest lumber'  in price and quality has goner  into construction of the five-  standard classroom building..'7  The auditorium-gymnasiuirr  individual heating, lijrhtiiis**  and control public address;  is nearing completion with its-  system.  The platform has been completed with the finest of equip-  ment and is ready for use.  The beautiful floor will be  reinforced by means of synthetic coatings which Avill protect the expensive wood.  The 'school board has authorized buying of coverings for  the main aisle when the huge  room is being used as am  auditorium.  Mr. Wilson pointed with:  'jfride ^6; the ' various" iih]nibVe--  ments his firm has made over  and above those ca'lled for in  the  plans.  "When we- do a job of construction, Ave flo the very best,-  We are never ashamed? to go  back and inspect our work.,  years later," he said. "That  is why we do little extras;  throughout the job. It is these-  things which give the finishing touches to a building and-  helps make our reputation for  good workmanship."  The young contractor pointed to several innovations done-  by his men which were not-  called for in the specifications.-  One case where he used plaster',  over the Avallboard-at the end!  of the hoine economics room,  gave the room a professionally:-  finished appearance which" ft;  would have lacked if the specifications  had   been, adhered-.  t.0. * r��wir���  There is little if  any waster"  "extra's" in the new buildinsr.  try,     one  logger  stated.  which has its oavii transformer  and fire proof furnace room  with automatic iron fireman.

A neAv committee will be set up to investigate the buying of  .the truck and the building of the $1700 garage���whieh Avill cost  .a lot -more���and the hiring of local trucking companies to sand  local road.?', while our truck sat and laughed at the whole procedure.  We are in agreement' Avith Commissioner Boucher as he rails  at the "waste spending." But Ave cannot see much coming out  of the investigation.  Commissioner Macnicol claims the coming of the ferry has'  changed the picture. That truck had been bought with a view  to hauling our OAvn water pipe Avhile constructing the new water  system.  If Mr. Macnicol had asked any local trucker before he approved buying the truck, they would have told him the truck  ���would cost thousands while, his pipe hauling would cost mere  hundreds. . '    .-  True, talking like this is a case of crying over spilt milk.  But Ave certainly do not think the people who. deliberately  kicked the milk bucket over should be forgotten.  Buying the truck, as the committee will find out, was just  one big, stupid blunder, and no amounf of verbal catmouflage  will .eover that.  Sinclair guides  James Sinclair, Ave think, has done a good job recommending the government amend the Combines Investigation Act,  thereby cutting out the right of wholesalers or manufacturers  :to set the retail price on commodities.  The bill has teeth in it Avhich can be tised to enforce the new  ���law. There is also a proviso urging the government to enforce  -Section 498-A of the Criminal Code provided the larger concerns  mse their immense buying poAver and per dollar lower overhead  id- cut prices: in order to destroy competition.  To the man on the street the neAvly passed bill will mean  he can now use his buying dollars-to shop around in order to  .get the best price.  Prior to this legislation, the buyer Avas at the mercy of the  larger concerns Avho set a Canada Avide price for ai commodity.  This often led to higher prices, being maintained than was actually needed under a' system of absolute free enterprise.  The little fellows may find themselves in a tough spot following the ruling of Mr. Sinclair's committee headed by himself  and Senator A. L". Beaiubien. The Sechelt Peninsula is composed  of "little" merchants, despite that, the fundamental rules'of"?  democracy and free trade, upon which Canada: is built, come  .before, any of us.  �����      It 'took strength to act as the parliamentary committee did.  "We are very proud that our member was given such a leader's  position in this far reaching* negotiation. It is a credit to the  acumen and thinking of the Coast-Capilano Liberals, and ai far  greater pat on the back to "OorsuTamie."  IMS FIBS!  /<-,  V  TO A Mill ION CANADIANS  \  V r   - v'^  ^V     ,   '  Bank of Montreal  /������'������-.'���  WORKING  WITH  CANADIANS  IN   EVERY WALK  OF-LIFE  SINCE   1BV7  AOIOJ  Gibsons Branch: THOMAS LARSON, Manager  Port Mellon (Sub Agency): Open Friday  Sechelt (Sub-Ageacy): Open Tuesday & Thursday  When the B.C. Division of  the Canadian Weekly Newspapers Association recently  sponsored an independent  readership survey of two member papers the results verified  some widely held beliefs of the  publishers and also produced  other interesting and gratifying  information. ,  In the. former category results of the surveys'of the  Fraser Valley weekly rtews-  paper used as ai "guinea pig,"  supported contention that the  Aveekly newspaper is riot quickly discarded after first reading but is retained for further  reading and reference to the  news and advertising thai its  columns contain. In fact, the  survey /showed that almost  half (49 per cent) of the readers surveyed keep their copy  in''their home, for seven days.  Only 2.4 per cent discarded the  Aveekly paper after one  day.  In the latter category, "interesting    and   gratifying   information,"  Avere  the  figures  on readership  of the editorial  column of the newspaper. The  survey   indicated   that  all  or  part of each of the paper's oavii  editorials -was   read   by  from  55 to 62 per cent of the men  readers  and  by from  38.5   to  43.4 per  cent   of   the Avomen  readers    of    the    paper.    The  opinion   of   other   newspapers  reproduced    in   the    editorial  column held   the  attention  of  better than 50 per cent of the  men and almost 40 per cent of  the women.  Reader interest in the advertising columns, as revealed  by vthe surveys was also gratifying both in percentages and  other data. For. example, the  results show women to have a  surprising interest in almost  eVerything advertised although  a greater percentage, of course,  had given more time to the  ads that pertained to the home  and clothes, food, education  and entertainment. It is obvious, however, they keep an  observant eye on everything  from tools and banking.-to the  automobile servicing�� "ads that  are of greater interest to men.  Positioning, of ads on the  pages, incidentally, did not  greatly influence the amount  of attention they received, the  survey shows. y  All in all, British Columbia's  ���weekly newspaper publishers  consider the results of the survey justify the great amount  of careful effort they put into  -their publications, effort which  has also given B.C. a name for  outstanding weekly neAvspa- '  pers among the ten provinces  of Canada.

The  only poor piece of planning,  obvious to the visitors, were  the hundreds of students lockers which were made of wood  and, by reason of their construction will be bothersome,  if not actually dangerous at  times.  Heating is central and can  be cut on and off each portion  of the school from a control  panel in tthe furnace room.  An automatic, and revolutionary T.B.M. bell is situated  in the principalis office which  will regulate the class periods..  The library has adjustable  shelves and there is a workroom for the librarian for repair of books and equipment.  One room, complete with  sink and cupboards has been  set a'sicle for teachers as a  "browsing" room.  There is a room for medical  inspections and one for study.  Hardware throughout the  building is of the finest, and  each outside door is equipped  with a "panic" lock in case  of fire.  A semi circular concrete  roadway will be built in the  front of , the building wich  faces the Sechelt highway.  There is little doubt the new  school is of outstanding construction and workmanship.  Said one of the carpenters,  who no longer owes allegiance  to the school or its builders,  "there is nothing, slip-shod  about that building. The school  board can look forward to  many yearsof trouble-i'ree  use. I, for onej am not ashamed  to say that I helped to build  it." ,  The ratepayers of the Sechelt  Peninsula need not feel, ashamed of.saying they helped pay  for it, either.  *��� WWi^i^-wV.   ^WA'S   ��� ^���������J/","*!^  ���* Vrv��vyi\ <-hWW V^f WW V  L��v^WiiV^'%P/V/   '  l  ��� j-         i   .  \  * \  IN ALL THINGS  IS THE BEST OF RULES  *��  PLAUTIUS  ���l JVl-JVJ^l> V ��-v V-  w-evwwwv  THE HOUSE" QF  EAGRAM  n-  A J+P.       ^S ��^.v-��A^ ��. **  ��� *m. .-JW ��� AV^MI/JWAW^A  MEN WHO THINK OF TOMORROW PRACTICE MODERATION TODAY*  This advertisement is not published or displayed by the Liquor Control Board or by the Government of British Columbia.  $5  JUST  LOOK AT THESE  BARGAIN OFFERS!
