Graham's  Funeral Home was in charge  of arrangements.  erun  Good news, probably the first in a long time for'Headlands'  water users, -was. contained in a directive passed by the Village  Commission at its liast  meeting.  Mrs. G. R, Watts with her  baby girl, born January 10 in  Ghilliwaek, 'has been named  winner of the completely  equipped layette for the first  baby born in the new year to  a Gibsons or district mother.  The layette which is composed of ia; full wardrobe, including hand made and hand  knitted dresses, a baby's bottle, powder, blankets, diapers  and even ia baby book with  which to keep record of the  little girl's progress..  Weighing six pounds ten  ounces when born, both, mother  and child will return to Gibsons sometime during the end  of this week.  Mr. Watt's, who is equally  proud of the fine distiction  added to the great- event, is  principal of the elementary  school and hia,s resided in Gibsons since September.

"Headlands water users will  only have to pay half of their  water use for 1952," said the  corn niissi on ch a irmaii. '' This  may make up, in some small  fashion for the very poor servr t  ice that area has had during  the last few years."  The Commission went, all out  to brighten the future of this ���  area   by  announcing   the  first  water  work   done   under   the ".  new   water   byktw   would   be  done in the Headlands region. ..  "The dam is the most important part of the'work," .he  said. "And it is there we will '  have to start, but after we get  that into shape andB find out  just how we stand in water  source, we will do the first  actual work on pipe and supply in the, Headlands district.  A committee of the commission, has already met on the  first step to bjei tiaken in reno- ,  vating the present system  authorized in December by the  public in a bylaw passed with,  overwhelming majority.  Mr. Drummond pointed out  the dam would have to be  cleared and cleaned as well as  auxiliary, sources checked ..and  new sediment boxes made? instead of present wooden ones  :';h'o\y^rotting. ;.. .v.:^,^.y^-^:.y,;^  ''S-Hiriiig" of ''a''^iU'iim^'''''i^aik'  tehance man will also be discussed at a future meeting of  council.  iY  Batt" May Get Liberal  Backing In Elections  The political, Peninsula pot is beginning to simmer,, following the hint from Victoria that an election is in the offing.  The plum of election year, president of the riding, usually  held by Powell River, is now resting in this area.  Through a slight miscalcula  tion and the abruptness of  Premier Johnson, the gears of  McKenzie Riding machine have  been thrown slightly out of  time.  Captain Andrew Johnston is  president of the riding while  the secretary and treasurer  are both Peninsula residents.  During the Liberal convention last year in Sechelt,. the  Powell River delegates withheld their overpowering votes  with a view to giving the Peninsula "a "break."  It was well understood that  the same group would install  the president and his. ��� main  officers in 19o2 with a view to  handling the election from the  pulp and pjaper city.  Due to the blow-up in Coalition, control will be in the  hands of Captain Johnston and  his officers, instead of in  Powell River.  It ii believed a directive has  already gone out from the  president to the various units  within the  McKenzie;1;Riding.  In discussing tlie ��� coming  election the .-Liberal ^president  ���minced few words on his standi.  "If 'Ratt' comes out with a?  itruly -Liberal policy and one  that we -can .conseiens'cious^y,���  sunport. T feel sure that McKenzie Ridinir will be be.hind  him one hundred per cent.  , '' Make   n o   mistake,''   Capt.  Johnston said, "the Liberals  .will elect the man they want,  because the man they want will  be the best man for the- community."  He spoke very higthly of Mr.  Maclntyre's personal ability  and his standing in the community.  "I'm speaking for everyone, I think," "when I sayr  we hope that Mr. Maclntyre'  can see his way clear to running on  the Liberal ticket.  "This riding is solidly behind Premier Johnson in his  stand with Coalition. He did  the right thing, and the only  thing that could be done by a  man of honor,, tinder the cir-  f.umstiahcps."  Traffic   Bylaw  to  Be  Inaugurated  A committee of the Commission will look into the new  traffic bylaw pending for the  Village of Gibsons.  Decision to get, started on  the new legislation was made  at the last meeting of council.  Said Commission Chairman  James Drummond, "It is time  we' -had a littleaetion on this  much needed net."  Th'c first  official   inspection  of the new fireball was made  this  week   bv    Commissioners-  ���under Commissioner W. Bonch-  er.

British Columbia.  it  iionatd  L  "Batt" Could Win  One of the gravest and most far reaching questions to confront the Sechelt Peninsula will have to be faced this year.  Who will represent McKenzie Riding in the Provincial  legislature during the next term?  What stand will B. M. Maclntyre, with his Liberal training  iand Conservative background, take?  What effect will the single transferable vote have on the  results of local voting?  These questions will be asked and answered this year.  We would like to look into the future and learn answers to  these questions, but that is not for us.  We can only guess.  It is hardly likely that Mr. Maclntyre will run other than  Independent Liberal. If he does, it is reasonable to believe he  will be elected.  With a tremendous personal popularity, Mr. Maclntyre  ��ould swing the vote even if jhe were to go completely Independent. He has worked hard and, for a first term man, ve!ry effectively for the riding.  It has been suggested that the Liberal machine would be  unwilling to run a candidate against Mr. Maclntyre were he to  run as Liberal Independent. There seems to be a fair degree of *  reason behind this thinking. '       .    ��    "  If the popular ML.A. did run as an Independent Liberal  it would mean the party would have his backing on all good  'legislation. And what Liberal would harbor the thought that  his party could further other tlian good governn|pat, r  The Conservatives could rely on Batt's conservative background to keep him working for Conservatism, provided it also  was good government.  With the single transferable vote and a Liberal running as  well as Mr. Maclntyre it would be a very close race. But with  the same conditions and Mr. Maclntyre's personal standing and  no Liberal candidate ��here is little doubt that the Powell River  man would sweep the slate.  This riding will be called upon this year to decide who will  represent them. We can only hope that the Liberal Association  finds it politic to backing either tacitly1 or whole heartedly, the  election of B. M. Maclntyre who has already given his* word  he will again run for office.  that  Ray Helps  Farmers Produce  ������ 'The x-ray has helped medical  u science     accomplish     wonders  since its  discovery by Professor Roentgen 57 years ago. It  has greatly simplified the detection  and   setting   of. bone  fractures  and   has   taken   the  guesswork out of the diagnosis  fof    many    human     ailments.  'Tuberculosis,    once   a  malady  .-responsible   for   thousands  of  deaths annually, is now on the  wane thanks to free chest x-  ray clinics operating in every  province.  Research workers in Canadian agricultural colleges are  using x-ray to produce mutations in the plant world which  may someday help alleviate  the world food shortage. One  scientist produced a. corn plant  with ears two feet long, but  this "giant" was lost to the  world because no record was  kept of the amount of radiation used in the experiment.  Pensioner s Mai!  Musi Be Correct  VICTORIA  ���   Many    persons who filed Old Age Security  applications,   in   the   late  summer' or  early  fall months  of 1951 have since moved and  failed   to  notify  the   regional  office in Victoria? of their new  address.   Unless  this   information  is    available   within   the  next two weeks, they will not  receive    their   initial   pension  cheques',  which will  be  going  forward at the end of January.  "A considerable number of  ? award letter's which were mailed mid-December to addresses  given on the registration have  been returned   by   the" postal  authorities   market .'removed'  or 'present address unknown,"  W. R. Bone, regional director  of    Old    Age    Security    said.  "Thus,  all persons   who have  changed their mailing address  since the time,   of   registering  for Old Age Security and who  have not notified this 'depart--  .ment should do so immediately...  Arrangements between the department  and  the  post office  officials are that chequed will  be returned unless they can be  "' delivered to the  payee at the  address shown on.the envelope.  Applicants,   therefore,   should  not    depend    upon    filing    a  change of address at their local  post  office  but  should  notify  this department. When a move  affects  a  man   and  wife   tlie  notification  should  show that  two   applicants   are   involved  and   if   possible,:  quote 'their  pension numbers."

Cf  TAffew 1S64  /    >  tarn row  Thursday January 24 1952    The CY&st JVews  The rapid expansiohxof Canada's fast growing communities,  coupled with definite problems of man-power, is high up among  the difficulties confronting the Post Office, Walter J. Turnbull,  deputy postmaster general, told-the Kiwanis Club recently.  Postal   officials would   like     '���  to be?"waiting at the front  door" to welcome people as  new homes spring up and the  families move in, be said.  However, the need to treat  everybody alike and at ^the  same time stay within Hie parliamentary appropriation demanded the setting up of service, standards to be applied  fairly throughout Canada.  The deputy reminded his  listeners! that the Post Office  now fa'ced the competition of  the armed services and the  laiHor demands of industry in  its recruitment of help.  "With regard to recent increases, Mr. Turnbull said that  unlike every feature of life  the, postal, services had for  many years resisted t\\e general upswing in costs." Rates  had. been held down so long  that when finally the pressure  of circumstances forced "modest increases," ai startled cry  went up. "It was," he said,  "as if the Rock of Gibraltar  had moved."  This % had    brought    about  some criticism, more than was  actually warranted. He assured  his  hearers  that  his   officials  were   working   ceaselessly   to  "make     the     machine     run  smoother."  \ .   " We have some long-range  \ plans,"   he   added, "so   that  \ the   Postal   Service  will   not  ovljf  grow  with  Canada,  but  ! will be a prime >agent in helping that growth." . >  !     The deputy  cited, some  instances   of   progress   in   the  transpbrtation ;'Jdf '  Canadian.,  mails,   recalling    the "All-Up  Air  Mail. Service"  by  means  of  which ' first-class,   mail   is  conveyed at ordinary rates of  postage.   *' Canada," he   said,  "was the first ��� and is still  the only country in the world  ��� to make such an extensive  use of the airplane to annihilate distances   and   give  ' star  service at stage-coach prices',"  Many post office critics demanded the exercise of stringent economies, Mr.  Turnbull  SECHELT  BY ARIES  A meeting of the St. Hilda's  Churchyard improvement coiUt  mittee mei at ihe home, of Mr.  and Mrs. WsrB.

This   will   enable   the  Sechelt   Motor   Transportation  Ltd. to render a, better service,  at the Vancouver side as it is  a' physical impossibility to con-,  trol the number of piassengers  using our service from Gibsons  to  Vancouver   in   regards ' to  checking for   tlie  ordering  of  overload  buses  from   Vaneou-.  ver, and especially during the  summer months."  The people of this Peninsula  have enjoyed an increasing  bus service year by year, and  one-way fares are. the same at  the present time as they were  in' the yeia.r. 1939, when this  bus .service'��� wa|s first inaugurated, although steady increases  in operation costs, due to road  conditions, liave made it necessary for us to make this application for one-way tickets.  ? In - addition to the above,  may we pais along just a few  percentage ���increases which  baive been advertised by the  largest transportation , com-,  pany- inf Canada. /?  ; Tire- '-price increase over a  period of 2 yeiars ��� 160' per  cent; Maintenance and.

We would like to emphasize,  also thaft the B.C.E.E5. have,  made application for a 50 per  cent incnease in one-way fares,  which are several increases for  their company during the  period of our operation, therefore, cannot see why we are  not justified in the legitimate  and fair application made, by  our transportation compa?ny.

Trucks  ���: Phone Wilson Creek 5~S ���  2.00 pm.   ;;. f  Evensong The Coast News    Thursday January 24 1952  utSifies  roqress  The industrial growth now  taking place, has been brought  about largely through policies  dealing with power development and forest management  licences. By establishing the  B.C. Power Commission to develop power for industrial  purposes and rural electrification, the whole economy of  Vancouver Island, as well as  other parts of the Province,  has been changed.  Utilization of Campbell River power has. made possible the  ���y*-  north, of Campbell River, now  being constructed at a cost of  $20,500,000 by Elk 5%lls Lim-;  ited, will come into production  in June of this year, but even  now a second, stage is being  discussed.  Consideration is being given  by the Elk Palls Limited for  the construction of a pulp  plant in connection with this  "operation and it is possible that  this will be announced shortly  ��� again increasing the num-  establishment   of   three    pulp    ber of Pe0Ple employed in this  operation.    The first stage  of  mills    on    Vancouver    Island.  First to be established was that  at   Port   Alberni  by   Bloedel,  Stewart   and   Welch   Limited.  Then   came  the  Harmac  pulp  mill  near  Nanaimo  by  H.  R.  McMillan Exports Limited, and  next the pulp and paper plant  at Duncan Bay, near Campbell  River, through, the joint efforts  of Canadian  Western Lumber  Company   and   Pacific   Mills.  The   Port   Alberni plant is  a  $7,000,000 project with a capacity of 155 tons per day and  a  payroll    of    15Q.   men    and  women, amounting to $500,000  annually.  The Harmac plant, near  Nanaimo, represents ;an investment of $19,000,000 with a  production of 300 tons of pulp  per day and employment of  more than 300 persons with '  an annual payroll of over one  this development, .which is  nearing completion, will employ 200 men in the plant and  500 men in the woods. Ultimately, it is expected to become one of the largest newsprint plants in Canada.  The construction of the  Bloedel plant at Alberni, the  Elk Palls Development at  Duncan Bay and the Harmac  plant ait Nanaimo were made  possible by the fact that power  was available from the John  Hart Development at Campbell  River.  The present capacity of the  John Hart Development is  112,000 horsepower. Two more  units are now being installed  to bring it to a total of 168,- ���  000 horsepower. It may be of  interest, to say that the John  Hart   plant not  only  supplies  million clollairs.    This plant is the  electrical energy required  now  in  the   process  of   being to  meet the   demands   of  the  doubled  at :a>   further  cost  of northern part of Isliatfid, which  $20,000,000. includes  the  industrial  devel-  The  plant  at  Duncan  Bay, opment I have   outlined,   but  also 17,000 h.p. now being used  in  the  city  of   Victoria'.   Another 10,000 h.p. will be used  over the next /two years and  any   additional   hydro   power,  used   in   Victoria must   come  from the Campbell River plant.  In the, Prince Rupert-Skeena  River area, another large undertaking   has   been   brought  into being by the granting of  a   forest management  licence.  I refe.r to the establishment of  a pulp plant at Port Edwiard,  "near   Prince   Rupert,   by   the  Columbia   Cellulose   Company.  This  pliant  represents' an   investment   of $27,000,000.  It is interesting to note that  an 'announcement was made a  few days ago of a vast undertaking   that  will   greatly  enhance   the   economic   stability  of the interior of this Province.  The   Columbia-  Cellulose  Company has for some time been  contemplating    a   large   scale  development    in    the    Arrow  Lakes    area   which   envisages  the utilization of timber in its  widest scope. Tlie plain to first  use the  logs for sawmill and  plywood    production    and    to  utilize the waste therefrom^for  the manufacture  of" pulp  and  newsprint. The-whole program -  ill the Arrow Lakes area will  represent    an'   investment    of  $65,000,000   and   will   employ  approximately   2,200   men.   I  think it is heedless for me to  say what this will mean to the  interior of this Province.  (Continued on page 7) ;  (See Premier Outltines)  PpONE ��� GIBSONS 76W  Mrs E.

The first stage was completed in May last year so that  production of pulp now averages between 150 and 170 tons  per day. The second stage will  be completed in September of  this year and will enable production of more than 200 tons  per day.  The Pacific Mills Company  at Ocean Falls is undertaking  an expansion programme of  $4,500,000 which includes the  establishment of a $1,700,000  sawmill !&s well as increased  production of pulp from 170  to nearly 200 tons per day.

All > this  "power    extension    is    adding  materially   to   our   ability   to  expand our industries."  I now come to a project  wjhose magnitude has somewhat, over-shadowed all else  that has been accomplished. I  refer to the establishment of  the Aluminum Co. of Canada  in British 'Columbia,  The first stage of the development at Kitimat is well under way. It involves the expenditure of something like  $160,000,000. Since" February  of-���'���.last'"' year, more than $40,-  000,000 has been expended and >  the tempo, of work is acceler  ating as the preliminary work  is left behind. More than 3,500  men ,are employed and the employment list is steadily rising.  The first stage will be com-,  pleted and the plant will, be  making aluminum by the late  Spring of 1954.  Wharf facilities capable of  handling ships from all over  the world are now in the process of "being established and  long before the first ingot of  aluminum is poured, there will  rise, out of the wilderness that  was once Kitimat', a new city  to provide opportunities for  our young men and women.  More recently it was my  pleasure to announce that,  subject to the approval of thje  Boalrd of Transport Commissioners;, the Trans-Mountain  Oil Pipe Line Company would  construct an oil pipe line from  Edmonton to Vancouver bv  way of the Yellowhead Pass  and the" interior; "of B.C. This  , project involves the expenditure of $82,000,000, and insofar as Vancouver is concerned,  it is perhaps the biggest thing  that has happened to the lower  mainland. A huge oil tank farm  will be established at Burnaby,  docking facilities will be necessary on the Vancouver waterfront, refining capacities will  be enlarged and hew refineries  established.  For some time now we have  advocated that natural gas be'  brought to the lower mainland  from northern B.C. and Alberta, by way of Pine Pass  and through the interior of  B.C. and Ave stand committed  to do very thing in our power  to bring that about,"  I'would like lo say a few  Avords about'the Pacific Great  Eastern. 'Railway.:. During the  past two years, we have been  constructing an extension from  Thursday January 24 1952    The Coast News  Quesnel to Prince George and  by Maiy,' or early June this  year, the last spike will be  rriven. In 'fact, all that remains to be completed is the  bridge across the.Ahbau Creek  and the laying ofJ Some eight  miles of track. The great Cottonwood Canyon, Avhich for so  many years was. the stumbling  block to the undertaking, has  finally been bridged by a span,  1,023  feet .in  length   and  230  feet above the water level.  It must be obvious to everyone what completion' of this  railway Avill mean to the economy of this Provnee. A great,  industrial growth is in store  for the Itrinee George and  Quesnel area. Avhere there are  large stands of merchantable  timber.  Wm.
