Dear Mr. Maclntyre:  As you may know, the Gow-  r Point road extends approximately four miles from the  Village of Gibsons along the  waterfron1 of the Strait of  Georgia. The$e are about  eighteen owners of. motor ve-  hivles residing ;on their own  property along this road. These  vehicles aire usedXcoristaiitly  for transportation; ^sTOT for  ple^s^e.

This road is very narrow  and winding with steep hills,  most of them on curves, and  drivers use the same extreme  care and courtesy as obtains  on narrow mountain highway, especially as a great deal  of the way is along steep cliff  edges. These physical conditions haVe. been cheerfully accepted. ^However jHie condition of the surface of the road  has,  during  the past  four  or  ever  again  appeared  here.  Cemetery Board of Trustees,    headed by Robert  Telford finds itself in the position of probably having to limit  sale of the remainir  mmediate  vicinity.  It was pointed out at the  meeting of trustees, Wednesday, that the ratio of outside  is three to one against locals.  Funds are so low, it is impossible for the present Board to  hire clearing of further acreage  Reluctantly, trustees, decided  to close the burial ground at  the first of the year to all but  Gibsons and immediate area  residents.  It has been noted that re  quests have been made, to the  outside areas'for financial help  In buying and clearing more  land for the ever growing area  which lies at the fork of the  Roberts Creek and Sechelt  High way.  Cemetery help is hired from  local citizens who do the work  more or less as a gesture of public spiritedness. There is no  money in the funds for this  type of work.  Early this summer a meeting  jdur^  was"'  return ed   as   chairman   it. wa s  decided  to   (do  something   ab  out  the   serious  situation).  Sechelt Board of trade set  up a committee some time  ago under the chairmanship  of L.S. Jackson to look into  the plan of starting a public  cemetery in Sechelt area.  Tt is expected this ��� decision  from Gibsons will speed up  action  in. other localaties.  FSre Takes Life Of  Fisherman Bert Hurst  Sechelt.

One of the main planks of  the unit will  be to  'maintain  government  the best possible  of the province of B.C. and of  the Dominion of Can&da, by  advocacy and support of the  principles   of   libera .ism '.

Talks  Pender  Sunday Closing  r PENDER     HARBOUR   The  Board of Trade will study^ the -  content! ous  problem   of   Sunday closing in the area.  Stores now +ake a holiday  on Monday but a plan is now  afoot to have closing day on  Sunday in the future.  Rather than hand down a  snap judgement on the matter,  the Board has set itself he job  of finding out what the majority of buyers would like and  what the store keepers feel.  Sunday closing will undou-  btedy bring up the matter of  fishermen going fishing on Sunday night and scores being  closed. This "would work a  hardship on t]re men who supply most, of the Harbour's income. It is felt this may not  be so important as it is argued, buying could easily be  done  on-- Saturday.  Findings will be released at  the next Board meeting.

Government phone systems are merely stop  gap at the best. They are not planned from  a long range, ever expanding point of view.  They are   .planned  and   installed with the  idea of serving the people until the people  can serve  themselves;.   "  That time has come ��n the progress of the  Sechelt area.

A1 the present moment ix  or seven men with a Department truck are digging a drain  age ditch along a small portion of the Gower Point road;  this draining of a great deal  of the road should have been  done years ago. We are glad  to notice it, but we have of  course no idea, of what more  is intended. The road has never been worse than it isnow,  and it is just the beginning of  the winter.  We who sign this letter to  you are Gower Point Road  residents and tax payers- who  own motor vehicles. Also bus  and txai operators and delivery and truck drivers who use  the road daily. Putting the matter perhaps crudely: we are  "fed-up" with the conditions  outlined above and we urge  you as our local representative in the Victoria Legislature to bring our complaint to  he attention of the proper authorities as forcefully as may  be,  with  a  view  t0  obtaining  .this relief ior us at the earliest possible  time.   '  ' Yours very truly,  Gower Point Road residents  Mr Humphries will act on  thte Building, Health and Finance and Salary committees  until the end of this year.

The Kin Tigers reserves  saw   plenty   of   action     when   they  tangled with Capilano in a ��� regular'  game   of  the basket  ball  series   in  North   Vancouver.   '  The Tigers marced off the flooi  with an impressive 10 -13 score  ���which places them securely in second   position.  Mike Poole stayed on the floor  mast of the game while brother  Noel and Howard Dean did spare  duty with an almost continual  appearance during- the last quarter.  Chuck Kane, in the absence of  Bill Pye took over centre duties,  doing  a    good     job    according     to  reports.  The   Tigers   started   out   with   a  close   knit     zone     defence     system  which payed off to the tune of 20-0  at   half   time.

The same year  has seen  the Village  area  ex  tended  from    sixty    acres  to  five hundred and two (always  counting   two    -hundred:'  and  twelve of    water).  However,  even    without the    water the  Village is no longer*the smallest    municipality     in    the  Province.  It is peraps fitting at this  .time  to  glance back over the  record, to review the difficulties  encountered  and the  efforts    made,   and    perhaps  to  give a moments thought to the  men  who  led  the   .struggle.  Of these of course,  the name  of ��� W.W.Winn   must   ever  be  pre  -eminent,   but  associated  wjth     him     were    those     old  fogies,      John      J.      Corlett,  George   Cooper   and   the  Rev.  P.C.Parker,     all   lonng     since  gone to their reward.  Apparently     the     principal  (though not-by any means the  only)   incentive   to     becoming  organized   as   a   municipality  was    the    need   of    domestic  water   supply,   residents   were  dependent on wells in the winter, and in the sinner on wells  and    on    a    water    supply  through   a   three-quartet  inch  pipe lakl on the suface of the  SECHELT  WE LEAD  THE HARBOUR WITH  Dry Goods "\  China  New, Fresh Supplies  A.

There     were   of  course,   other   matters     which  xieeded attention, but the water  was  of  first  importance.  The situation was a challenge  to the initiative of the people  concerned and a group led by  Mr Winn rose to the occasslon  After some... study, it appeared  that formation  of amunicipal-  ity,  withpower to  provide  local   services,afforded  the   best  hope  of  acquiring those  serv-  ees.at the least cost to the.taxpayer. Aii. early proposal was  to organize, pia^e -a, large area  including  much   -'land' up  ;the  hill this  was  soon  abandoned  as impractical .Then the plan  was  to   organize   substantially  the same' area' that now constitutes  the   enlarged  Village.  Opposition  to this proved too  great, and finally it waspo.ss-  ible to organize only the eastern sixty acres of District lot  686.  True,: there  was  spirited  opposition even there, but that  sixty acres was the area where  the water situation    was    the  worst, which was very probab  ly  the reasbn  of the  affirmative verdict. It *s perhaps redundant, and certainly profitless^  observe    that-   the  de-  velopemen,t of the community  has   been   definitely  retarded  by  failure  to   include,   at  the  . outset,botlu District   Lots  685  and 68.6 in their entirety.

The same year  has seen  the Village  area  ex  tended  from . sixty    acres to  five hundred and two (always  counting   two   -hundred:5  and  twelve of    water).  However,  even    without the    water the  Village is no longer'the smallest    municipality    in    the  Province.  It is peraps fitting at this  ���time  to  glance back over the  record, to review the difficulties  encountered  and the  efforts     made,   and    perhaps  to  give a moments thought to the  men  who  led   the   struggle.  Of these  of course,  the name  of ��� W.W.Winn   must   ever   be  pre  -eminent,   but  associated  w^th     him     were    those     old  fogies,      John      J.      Corlett,  George   Cooper   and  the   Rev.  P.C.Parker,     all   lonng     since  gone'to their reward.  Apparently     the     principal  (though not-by any means ,the  only)   incentive   to     becoming  organized   as   a   municipality  was     the    need   of    domestic  water   supply,   residents   were  dependent on wells in the winter, and in the sinner on wells  and    on.    a    water    supply  through   a   three-quarter,   inch  pipe la'd on the sufaee of the  SECHELT  good     job    .according-     to  WE LEAD  THE HARBOUR WITH  Dry Goods i  China  New, Fresh Supplies  A.Complete Stock  of Kitchen and  Home Essentials  MURDOCK'S  MARINE SUPPLY  Pender Harbour, B.C.

Water   was   available  _$ money  could  be found to  pipe it from the source to the  consumer.     There     were   of  course,   other   matters     which  needed  attention, but the water  was  of  first  importance.  The situation was a  challenge  to the initiative of the people  concerned and a group led by  Mr Winn rose to the occasslon  After some...?,tudy, it appeared  that formation  of amunicipal-  ity,  withpo.wer  to  provide  local  services,afforded  the   best  hope  of  acquiring those  serv-  ees at the.least cost to the taxpayer. An. early proposal was  to organize pftite a large area  including  much    laiid  up {he  hill  this  was  soon  abandoned  as impractical. .Then the plan,  was  to   organize   substantially  the same area' that now constitutes  the  enlarged  Village.  Opposition  to  this proved too  great,  and  finally it wasposs-  ible to organize onlv the east-  er'n sixty acres of District lot  6S6.  True,, there  was  spirited  opposition even there, but that  s'xty acres was the area where  the water situation    was    the  worst,- which was very probab  lv  the reason  of the  affirmu-  tive verdict.  Ift is perhaps redundant, and certainly profit-  less,to  observe    that-   the  de-  velopement of the community  has  been ..������definitely  retarded  hy  failure  to  include,   at  the  .-.outset,both�� District   Lots  685  and 686 in their entirety.
