Array f  PROVINCIAL  iTOROFATH  NATUROPATHIC physicians, for the first time in the  50 year history  of their  pro-  fes.sion, will be allowed to  treat injured workmen under  the B.C. Workmen's Compensation Board Act.  Dr.Albert L. Russell, president of the B.C. Naturopathic  ^Physicians, Association, said  Thursday the WCB has granted the association parity with  the medical doctor on all  injured   worker   cases.  Ht< said the new ruling  will widen treatment available  to WCB patients without con-  flicting in the field of medical  physicians.  "The broadening of the act  gives the workman advantage  of all treatment fields, helping  save man hours, reduce cost  of care and relieve pain" he  said. .  Dr Russell,with Dr. R. M.  Grant and Dr R. A. Holtum  both of Victoria, has formed  a committee that .spent more  than a year "(in negotiations  with Adam Bell* WCB chairman  All three were in Vancouver  Thursday to address a special  meeting1 of the NPA on the  new WCB  ruling.  They said there are 45 to  50 train ed. naturopathic physicians in B.C. The profession,  50 years old, was first recognized in B.C. in 1936.  IT'S A BABY GIRL  JPENDEJfo HARBOUR.

Maclntyre, M.I_,A> was  the reaction to the petition on  the state of Gower Point Road,  signed by many residents and  forwarded to the Member from  Powell River.  A copy of the petition was  sent by Mr Maclntyre to E.S.  Jones, Deputy Minister of  Public Works, Victoria and to  Mr Bruce Cartwright, district  superintendent.  "I will press the department  to the full extent of my ability", Mr Maclntyre said in his  answer to John Coleridge, the  mail responsible' for, the  petition.  Following' is *a copy of the  letter sent to Mr Cartwright.  Dear Bruce.  Enclosed please find a signed  petition from the residents of  the Gower Point Road leading  from Gibsons.  It is quite evident that these  people have a just complaint  regarding the condition of this  road and something worthwhile must be done to the  condition of the surface before  winter advances any further.  It is my intention to spend  four days from Monday 11 of  December until. Thursday .14  oil the .Sechelt Peninsula.  During this time I will spend  the day of the 13, Wednesday  in  Gibsons.  If it is at all possible I  would- greatly appreciate your  meeting me there on Wednesday so as we might inspect  thecondit ion of tlie road and,  have your valued opinion so  as we may know what work  you are prepared tp..have done,;..  Also  I  wonder   if  our  new  District Engineer, Mr Cunliffe, "'  would   consider  making     the  trip to, Gibsons upon that day,  Published by The Coast News, Gibsons, B.C.

Completion of the  double flushing project abandoned by the government,  this; fall will have first priority  next spring.  Money voted for the plan  eral fund. The projects as  will not go back into the gen-  planned for this summer, will  be fully implemented early  next year.  Such  was  the .summing  up  of the road situation by B.M.  "Batt"    Maclntyre    MlL.A.  speaking to the Bord of Trade,  in the Sechelt Inn, Monday.  "���Mr Maclntyre also scored  the lack of a gravel crusher  on the Peninsula. Need for a  resident district engineer for  the McKenzie riding was also  great, -he said.  "Too long haye we been a  part  of  the    Marine    Drive,  North, West Vancouver   and  1 ^^elixRiyer f area under ��� one-  �� man 7\  We  .shoul4 ^ aye  otis?

I   shall  press for thjs when next I go  to    Victoria,    Mr     Maclntyre  promised.  jRoger Green backed the  MLA's   .plan   for   a    crusher  "We cannot begin to build  roads here without one", he  said. "This area has needed a  crusher for many years. It  would answer a great number  of our highway problems".  During discussion, it was  pointed out to Jack Laidlaw  that the government considered the upper road was the  main highway. Mr Laidlaw  was pressing for double flush  and more "maintenance on the  Robert  Creek cutoff.  ' * Before the government  will consider any major upkeep  or changes in the type of road  you now have", Maclntyre  suggested, "we Jwill have to  have Victoria gazette a change  in rating for the cutoff".  R.   Cummings   pointed   out  that the road at Roberts Creek,  was just a "morass}  A letter from:I>e^^y'^inisfer-  6-L Public Wbrks, xB_Sj Jones  stated "the roads are as good  as possible now".  District Engineer Bruce  Cartwright will support the  plan for a local rock crusher.  Only $8000 of the budgetted  $35,000 was spent on black-  topping last fall.  Teachers Get A New  Offer From Board  GIBSONS.   Teachers   will   be  approved by the Sechelt  effort to. avoid a deadlock in  progress for a month.  Suggestion to lay final proposals before the. negotiating  committee was moved by T  Humphries, new trustee who  took his position on the Board  at a meeting' immediately following   his   election.

More than 60 percent of the voters turned out Thursday to elect , Harley C. Anderson, James Hall and Robert  Macnicoll to three Village Commiss ion vacancies.  Commission  Chairman James Drummond, up  for  election,  was not returned. William Holmes, and Ralph Skelton were the  other unsuccesful candidates.   Hall, Anderson and Macnicol  we're   backed   by   the   Gibsons  and District Ratepayer's Association.  Liquor Store  For Gibsons  GIBSONS.   The   Liquor 'store,  long  a  point of  dispute  on  the   Peninsula,  will   "defenite  ly" come to Gibsons.  We may have one prior to  construction of a building  which may start soometime  next summer. B.M. Maclntyre  speaking to the Sechelt Board  of Trade, Monday, revealed  what has been done in respect  to the Liquor store.  "Mr Kennedy (Liquor Commissioner) is very sympathetic to our needs ",he reported.  "Mr Kennedy decided on  Gibsons on a point of population alone".  Hie told me the Commission  was already 18 stores behind  in .its  construction  program.  "The Liquor Board will  not rent. I looked, over the  store jonee occupied by Jim  Veitch (The Record and appliance shop) but it will be too  small. It was following this  survey, the Board decided to  build.  Mr Kennedy told me hewill  give 'serious consideration' to  building a store following the  new estimates which will come  down oh April 1.  A man in Gibsons offered  to build the store and rent it  to the Liquor Commission bu1  the Board decided against  that plan as it would pay in  rent in ten years what it  would cost to have the build-  inir   built.  ���  SECHELT. Half Moon Bay  cut ofl: will "certainly not be  built within  a year, anyway'.  Such is the decision of the  Department of Public works  according to B.M. Maclntyre,  MX.. A. He also reported E.G.  Carson ' (Minister.) as saying  "it will cost more than the  appropriations for the whole  of tlie McKenzie riding to  build that piece of road, lt  just can't be done, and another thing, if the B.C. Power  Commission has any idea that  we are going to build their  right of way, they have another" think  coming'.  'Port   Mellon   road  will   be  .built immediately Port Mellon  has.been sold and starts operation',  Maclntyre  said  XHe also revealed that "eastern interests had been dickering ��� with'-intent  to   buy  Port  "Mellon   but   this    h'a's\ fallen  through"..  Two  hundred  and   one  ballots were cast from a  possible  521.    Only    one    ballot    was  rejected.  Naturopath Harley Anderson  popular member of the Board  of Trade and dark horse in  the race, topped the poll with  a thumping 146 ballots in his  favour; Robert Macni co] , rjan  second with 110 -Haill, third  with 106. voting was held in  The Village Hall. Robert Burns  was returning officer.  PTA MEETING  GIBSONS.  Mrs G.

This   community,  long     without   a   communal  graveyard,   und     endangering  the little space left in X.mview  Cemetery, ion ful ont lb -v have  had a cemetery sine;' 1XX.  during discussion   on   a   lett-  ***��� /,  er from the Gibsons Cemetery  .Boa-;Wl, suggesting, something  should be done about limited  space in Seaview. B.M.  Maclntyre produced ti;e order  in council copy which gave to  Sechelt and District a live acre  pint of land situated on Lot  152S, .group 1, granted under  authority of R.S.B.C. 1036 of  the  "Cemeteries" Act".  Again L.S. -Jackson brought  out the information that many  people didn't want that graveyard, it was too far for some  of thcXvornen to walk on a  ���Sunday afternoon"..  He also suggested another  site along the Crucil logging  road "where it would be eay  to create a cemetery. We first  have to own the property -  which should be easy - then  have it subdivided, then get  permission from Victoria to  form a Cemetery Board.  This site would.be^s^ld to  the Cemetery Board for $1.,  be   reported. X The Coast News December 14 1950  Santa Clause At Home  NOW IS THE season of good cheer and goodwill toward men.  It is the time of holly and hot drink* and cold weather and  warm hearts. We suggest that like charity, the goodwill thoughts  should  start at home.  From Hopkins Landing to Pender Harbour our stores are  loaded with Christmas goodies. These are priced where they are  within the reach of eyeryone, they are eompetetive with anything in Vancouver in both cost and value. Everything considered, the Sechelt Peninsula would be a very good place in which  to begin with that Christmas feeling of helping the other fellow.  We would suggest that a real live Santa Claus somewhere  along the area would add just a little to the general atmosphere.  Still. Santa is secondary to the spirit engendered by his day. ���  Start off with buying at home where you can get value for  your money without the banging and bruising of wrestling in  the city  Sechelt May Be Slated  For Amalgamation Soon  ��� SECHELT. A"full investigation into the probability of this area  becoming a municipality, "will be undertaken by a committee  of the Board of Trade headed by L.S. Jack-son.  ���Approaches will be'made'to the Sechelt  and District  Im-.  provcment association in an effort to have that body get .behind  the probe in order to    clarity the water and light situation as  iveil-a-1" local improvements.  The Board of Trade, following discussion and information  decided it was time, in. the w.ords of President Ken Whitaker  received from its    previously  formed investigating  committee,  "'"to'qui1 shilly ��hallying" on the subject.  L.S. Jack-son, who seemed to be either a member or chairman  of every committee on the Board, reported formation of an Improvement District would hardly be satisfactory. He pointed  aut -that, formation,'ofr the District would involve nearly as many  "headaches" a�� formatioii of a Village.  B.M. Mac In tyre, M.L.A. drew a bright picture of a Powell  River locality which had voted for the improvement plan. "They  are doing very well', he said.  Jack Nelson moved that the Board get behind the drive to  become organized. Robert Cook warned not to "forget" the  Improvement Association in their deliberation5. "They have a  wide knowledge and much information on tVe subject" he said  "We should all work together to make this a better area".  Reader's Right  EDITOR The News  Sir I note the motor vehicle  owners of Gower Point were  complaining of the very poor  condition of the road to Gibsons and that the G-overnment  grader had scraped off. most  of the surface. Did some one  say logging trucks?  This   gravel   road  bed  was  broken up long before the  logging trucks came over it.  This road used to have many  level and partially. level portions of a good, natural gravel  road bed that stood a lot of  pounding (if not broken up).  It would take a road- gang a  month to rectify the damage a  grader could do in one day  on these  gravel roads.  We are fortunate in having  these   gravel  roads,   compared  JL       Cr3 ��� ��� ��� *  We Make 'Em.  Kitchen Cabinets  - .���  every unit  to^  fit your kitchen.  Cabinets.  Chests  of Drawers.

After about 5000' trips, the old  engine decided to give up the  ghost.  The  commuters  on  the  ferry at Horseshoe Bay, waited  for  the  Hollyburn   to     bring  them .home,     arriving     here  around 1 am. Our village clerk  coming borne  from  town was  one of the passengers. He said  he was*.very,lucky, he got the  last cup of Die's coffee. Breaking down of our ferry service,  gives| one quite a queer feeling  supposing   we    were'   without  the ferry, just what would we  do. We take the boat so muqh  to several municipalities on  the lower mainland who have  to build roads over miles of  peat bog.

Along our main street, there  is variety galore, something  suitable for everyone- from  the baby to Grandma.

Social news this week is  .mighty slim, everyone seems  to be very healthy, and I guess  all the visiting is being saved  for Christmas and the New  Years.

Telephone Company and  the Government Telephone  .Service meet is the cause of  delays in long distance calls,  according to information received by the Board of Trade.  L.S. Jackson, reporting on  the phone enquiry, started by  the Board at a recent meeting  in answer to "many complaints ' ',suggeste'd the population  here had out grown the present  system and had out distanced  the B.C.

Gordon Dalzell, Selma Park  Store Proprietor, pointed out  that local switchboards were  the cause of many delayed  calls. Wally Berry concurred  when he revealed that switchboards had only alimited  supply   of   plugs.  ': This means the " girls have  to sit and watch your signal  without being able to do a  tiling about it", Mr Berry  said. He also scored the practice of operators having to read  telegrams over the lines.  Further investigations will  be made by the Board committee and telephone officials in  an effort to completely eliminate trouble.

"Robert Burns.  Might I suggest to Mr Burns  that, before launching* himself  upon a literary career, he provide himself with a dictionary  to fortify what would seem to  be a very meagre vocabulary.  He w >uld then, I believe, be  able to avail himself of more  suitable words than "Old  Fogies" in referring to the  kindlv old gentlemen who were  elected by the people ofGib-  sons, and served the Village  well and faithfully for a good  many years. Mr Burns descriptive efforts, are inparticularly  bad.taste at a time when not.,.  cue of those fine old citizens  is alive to return the compliment. Recalling the spirit and X  wit of their reparte, I am .sure  "that fbis would have been done  promptly, in a manner quite  discomforting to Mr Burns:  Mrs. G.R.

Starting from an idea in the mind of Rev. Father  Ed. O'Dwyer, this area's C.Y.O. club has grown in les* than.a  month, to a membership of 20 persons.  Following is the lis^ of guests who attended the supper  meeting recently "held in Glendalough under sponsorship of Mr  and Mrs Jack Mayne.  Lawrence and Rudy Crucil,  Laurie Evans, Yvette Roy, Bo))  Kent, Rosemary Smith, Ed  Hancock, and Mercedes Carroll  of Sechelt, while Elaine Zwiek,  Gerry Berthelet, .Stevie  Littlejohn, Harold Klein,  Sylvia D'Aoust, Gilda Rietze.  and    Jackie    Nestman,    were  present  from  Gibsons.  It is the Club's intention  to soon start classes in leather-  work copper work and molding* craft.  A raffle will be held prior  to December 17 when a Christmas party will be held by the  unit in the Indian School Hall.  YELLOW CEDAR LUMBER  This is a coastal name for this fine wood and it is perhaps  as well because its botanical name is Chamaecyparis Nootkaten-  sis which is   something   else   again.   It   is   one   of   our   hardy  specimens that is not often seen by the layman or the low level  logger  for  that  matter  as  its  habitat  is (he  higher  levels   of  the   Coastal   mountains,   generally .starting   around   the -2,000  ft, altitude. It lo/lks quite similar to Red Cedar, but on closer  inspection  it  is easily identified. As the logging of the  lower  Coast level begins to climb upward it will follow that more of  this fine wood will find its   way   to   market.   In   the   Sechelt  Peninsula it is beginning to show up in general housing requirements and also heavy construction, where its  sterling properties are slowly being appreciated.  No need for using inferior second growth lumber,  use Yellow Cedar. Cheaper and better.

Apparently hopeless, 3ret it  was done. The answer to the  seeming-- neucromaney, of  course, lay largely in the fact  that much work was done entirely free,, and Jplenty more  was paid only on a nominal  basis. There were no engineering nor supervision fees at all.  very high grade workmen  were on the job at forty and  fifty cents per hour, supplying their own tools, total office  costs ran perhaps two hundred  dollars per year.  Mr. Winn,  never one to let  opportunity   slip,   was   able   to  get   the   government     to     put  relief labour   on   the   job   of  " trenching   for   one   section   of  service  main.   Mention   should  also be made of the help the  new Village, with inexperienced   officials, received from the  late Mr E.H. Bridgman,  Deputy Minister on Municipal aff  airs,  that  officer    was    most  adept at the work of guiding  small municipalities, taking an  interest in there problems, and  was  most  kindly  and  helpful  not only in assisting them out  of   troubles,   but  In   showing  them how to avoid pitfalls.  About 1937 an opportunity  arose to aquire a portion of  water front property, this was  done with a view to making a  place for bathers etc., also  as Mr Winn was not slow to  grasp, a place for a municipal  hall 'when we get the money'.  The    property    was    cleared,  By Shirley Pinchin,  B.H.E/\.  .    CHRISTMAS   COOKIES  ..  Vou should always have cookies on hand during the Holiday season. Many cookie recipes are traditional for Christmas and add to the gaiety of  the festivities.  The tantalizing aroma of  cookies baking, puddings steaming and fruit cakes baking  in your kitchen is as much a  part of the Christmas spirit  as the Christmas tree itself  So lets get busy and make a  few quick and easy cookies in  advance so that thev will be  on hand for the family and  visitors all through the season.  Some Christmas cookies are  best if they are allowed to  keep for a number of weeks  before they are eaten. One of  these cookies is the traditional shortbread.  Shortbread  some   grading   done,     ana     a  breakwater   built.   Mr   Wdnn  unfortunatly,  did  not  live   to  see   the   hall   built,   he   died,  but  his  work lives  on.  Meantime, other problems  began to cast shadows, consumption of water grew rapidly, and a relief pumping  plant was put in, giving a  pumping capaciy able to deliver all the water apparently  available at that source. It  was realized that continued  growth on the Village would  necessitate additional water  supply. A source of gravity  supply was located, a season  spent in observing flow indicated that a very considerable  supply could be depended  upon. Water rights were then  obtained and it was planned  to go forward immediately  with developement.  BY MARGARET ALLAN ,. ..  Sorry to hear that Mrs Mills  is on the sick list again.
