Serving the Sunnv Seciielt Peninsula  inclair  ines  Of World Rehabilitates  SECHELT.��� Insults fly thicker and faster than flattery  at United Nations meetings, according to James Sinclair, M.P.,.  who ,yvas called a. liar, cheat and phlegmatic bull when he scored  the Russians during conferences at Geneva last summer.  ���  " " "~ Spiced with humor, the M.P.

The passenger  train's diesel engine can be seen in the': foreground, y\)y.: '���'���  Kinsmen Polio Drive  Is One*of^yrgigiitty  Local Kinsmen, under President Tom Larson, have  releasing some staggering figures: with regard to the  drive now in being on the Peninsula.  SECHELT. ��� St.  Church, sparked by  executive, is having  job of repairs done.  Two bulldozers worked for  several days in the church  vicinity clearing land and enlarging the church yard.  The new board fmembers,  who are responsible for this  burst of energy are, E. Clayton, L. S. Jackson, Ben Lang  and Jim Parker.  Said Mr. Jackson, "This  work is long overdue and it is  tim*e someone to\)k a hand in  the affair. We are not stopping  at this sta'ge either. ?t)pii't be  surprised if you should see an  enlarged church, sometime ��� in  the near future. Our Sunday  School attendance has trippled  in the last few months and the  present building will be too  small for the increase."  The, church area will now  consist of 2 cleared acres.  UmmTm    liberalism Needs"  been  polio  The province is attempting  to raise, $40,000 *in order to  combat this crippling and  killing'^disease.  One fact not commonly realized is that polio is not just a;  children's disease, but strikes  adults ass well. The incidence  of polio in patients over twenty years is almost as.high as  in patients under 14 years; the  Kinsmen claim.  A clase history of a 17 year  old patient shows' the remarkable work done for her by the  Polio Fund. When they took  i over her case, she was completely helpless, Unable to even  move herself- from her wheelchair to her bed. She was admitted to the Western Society  for-Physical Rehabilitation in  Vancouver and within a. month  was able to get out of her  ehaifr unassisted. Treatments ,  continued, and a year later,?  she was released frorriv the  Society ��� 'she walked on  crutches. The cost of lier treatment for this period was  41,500. ''���;,';    v  A short',, time   ago a: letter  received by the Fund fromHhis ���;  girl   said,. ^Svords  cannot  express all   I'd   like to say, to  thank the wonderful Kinsmen -  Clubs, and the Polio Fund for  all you've   done for  me.  God  Bless you all." The Polio Fund  feel that the 5$l,o00 was well/  spent. ??  The amount spent on this  irirl drives some idea of the  tremendous eost of polio. This  case is closed, but many victims veed treatment for much  longer than a year. The costs  include medical treatment, orthopaedic equipment, physioV  therapy and rehabilitation aid.  The Fund'�� _o?>l of $40,000 is,  a very modest figure compared  ..to the need. There is no provision made for an epidemic ���  this figure is based on the-  normal number of cases.  ���'  It is pointed out by the Kinsmen that it's fortunate an epidemic didn't occur in British  Columbia during 1951. At the  end of that year, there was  only $200 left in the Fund. Not  enough to care for even one  additional patient.  These are some of the reasons why the Kinsmen Clubs  solicit your help in their campaign: Send your donations to  Mike Landry, c/o Bank of  Montreal,  Gibsons, B.C.  ,*���'   ?.V '�����":��� -.- :��� ���'.-������ ���  Old Chinook  SECHELT. ��� As Chinook  was the language of trade  between the Indians and the  foreign traders who arrived  in huge sailing ships, so is  English, the language of  barter in the world market.  James Sinclair, M.P.,. disclosed this in a recent speech  made here.  "When traders meet in  the world market to bargain  for their nations goods and  services, they speak in the  English language," he said.  There seems to be very  little left for our Indian  brothers. They are not allowed to hold on to the things  they do originate.  4  Sechelt Inn Sold To  Saskatchewan Couple  .SECHELT.���One of Sechelt's oldest landmarks, the" Sechelt  Iiin, has been sold to Mr. and Mrs, C. H. Duncan of Saskatchewan, according to information released by Company Resident  Manager F.Pearson.  The changeover will be made  March 1. The sale price was  not disclosed, but it is known  the deal was handled by a New  Westminster real estate firm.  "Changes,- if any, will be  gradual," a ,Union spokesman  s��id. "The new owners do not.  intend to make any drastic  changeovers until they have  had a chance to look over the  situation."  Bill DUneah. wrell known  CKNW ra'dio announcer, is a  son of the hew b\vners.  "There has been no decision  made with regard to the dining  room," Mr. Pearson said on  behalf  of the Duncans.  Mr.  and Mrs.  Pearson ^ill-:  operate the hotel under exist  ing conditions until the,building is transferred.  Kinsmen Wifes  Present Layette  Mrs. G. ?R. Watts was presented with the baby layette  on February 9. Mrs. T. Larson  and Mrs. A. Whitting made  the presentation on behalf of  the Kinsmen's Wives. Mrs.  Watts served tea, and her  lovely baby was admired by  the ladies. '  The Kinsmen's Wives plan  to make the layette an annual  gift. *'  SECIIELT. ��� Even the Liberal orgianizations can make  mistakes, according to local  Liberal Leader Capt. Andrew  Johnston.  Speaking ai the recent political meeting . in the Legion  Hall, Johnston urged all Liberals to set to in mending broken  fences, acquired through the  years.  "We have made mistakes  and will probably make more,"  he said. "But we have the  proper form of government in  this country now and we, as  Liberals., must see that Democracy remains here. It is the  duty of us all to sell. Liberalism and proper representation  to our neighbor.  "The party has done good  work and when it can claim  such men as St. Laurent,  Sinclair and McKenzie King,  it must be of the right construction. ''  He urged the various units  within the McKenzie Riding  to buckle down in order to  "perpetuate' our form of government."   Captain Johnston  Lauds late King  SECHELT. ��� Capt. Andrew  Johnston, head of the McKenzie Riding Liberals aiid chairman of the recent "Sinclair  Speaks" meeting in Legion  Hall, paid verbal homage to  the late King when he opened  the meeting.  The chairman pointed to the  great 'work and self-effacing  efforts made on behalf of his  empire by King George VI  during his reign. He told of  the esteem in which he was  held throughout the world and  remarked on the deep personal  sorrow fplt by all.  spoke at a public meeting in  Legion Hall, Friday. He outlined the work done by the  various committees ofv the  U.N. and the part played by  Canada.  in his role of' watcher during the Economic Council  meetings, Mr. Sinclair sat for  two weeks and listened to the  speeches, "very few of which'  were other than chances for  the Russians to promote their  own false propaganda."  Urged on by the American  delegate, and the British,, our  member made his maiden  speech and condemned the  tissue of lies spread by the  Soviet. He queried the much  lauded '' Russian freedom,''  pointing out that in that land  no one was allowed to leave  of their own free will. "They  have to escape from Russian  freedom," he said. "They come  out from Russia under garbage  and manure piled on wagons;  they steal trains and use every^  method to run or flee from*,  this much vaunted  freedom:,"'  During the Russian's answer  to this speech^ Mr. Sinclair  was called a "liar and phlegmatic bull with a ring in his  nose.."v ;.., ������������������ '.yy.:- v:.,:.v?.- - ������ -. ���'-  ' '?He'described'vthe ' technical  assistance given to various  countries by UNESCO, telling  of places where the rehabilita^  tion is one of self-help.  "Canada's share of this'  work comes to only one-thirtieth of what- it cost for last  war, and this is the proper  way in which to avoid wars,"  he said. \  Part of the UNESCO work  is to train, teachers who cair  return and teach, the children  of their own lands. He pointed  out that in some countries  with a very low sia'ndard of  living, the ruling class is often  against any change which  would see the standards, within that country raise  is another difficulty  to face.

SECHELT. ��� R.C.M.P. officers are urging the public? tcs  take advantage of license plate  issuing hours which are geared  to better service.  Plates will be issued between  the hours of 9���12 a.m, everyday, excepting Sundays. Class  A and B license holders should  make a point of picking up-  their licenses before the last-  week in February. Forres for  these licenses should be picked  up and filled in prior to presentation at the issuing officii,,  the R.C.M.P^ suggest,  "This will speed up th"  service to a- great extent," thr  spokesman said. "The public  can have no complaint about  issuance of licenses, provided  they abide by the plans scl  out for their benefit."

The butterfly starts to warrant approving attention only  when it is released from its bondage. The same will apply to  the two lovely islands which lie protected and comfortable in  the West Howe Sound.  Both islands were once blessed with transportation and on  this the people who came to live thereon relied. Then the means  of egress was taken from them and the two islands started to  slip back.  The news from Victoria, regarding a transport system, to  be supplied by Black Ball Ferries, is like the sun to the cocoon.  Both islands can now stretch ,and grow and fill their destiny of  supplying summer homes in peace and quiet.  Only in such places can we, in this world of speed and  hurry, find rest and the time to contemplate and become wise.  News of the ferry service, which miay take the form of a  Tymac class boat, has been heard, particularly on Gambier, with  gladness and relief. Many families there have children and are  working in the logging camps or at Andy's Bay, and they are'  in need of the new service.  The Government <at. Victoria is to-be thanked for its action  on beha'lf of the. more than one hundred families. The same  thanks should be-spread to the ferry company for its public  spirited attitude. It is well known the service will hardly .be  self-liquidating. .      ��� .,  To B. M. Maclntyre, MLA, goes a major portion of the  credit'. He has worked hard and earnestly on behalf of the  islands. And to Captain Francis Drage must go a "thank you."  His many trips to; Victoria,; ^:,pe^  ienee, have been a'greal cbnt^utory factor?m get&ng the' suri^  of progress to kiss the'cocoon of Gambier and Keats.  ��� ��� ��� ;     '    "' -     '       ' .   ���  Reader s Right  Editor, The News,  Sir: ���  I have just read that the  present Village Commissioners  ��� have decided to sell the dump  truck that was purchased by  the Village of Gibsons last  year.  Because I was. one of. the  commissioners that voted for  ���ilaf pur chaise of the truck last  year, I feel that it is in order  for me to express my feelings  regarding the action of present  commissioners in deciding to  sell the truck.  i I voted for the purchase of  the truck for the following^  reasons'- (1) Because in the  past whenever a truck was required to do road maintainance  work, all the local trucks  would be busy at some ot?her  work and could not be secured  at the time when conditions  were favorable to do the work.  (2) It was to be used to gather  garbalge and dispose of same.  A garbage bylaw was drafted  by myself, but was never  ��� considered or discussed by the.  Village Commissioners, because  some of the commissioners felt  that a plafee to dump the garbage must be secured before  a garbage bylaw could be considered. ��� unfortunately ���  although a place wa's*found to  dump the garbage ��� approval  >   for   same   had  to be secured  from the Government and from-  the Department of Health.  This approval was slow coming, but I have been informed  that it has now been secured.  (3) The truck was also to be  used in connection with the  water department.  In spite of all the publicity  that was given to the purchase  of the truck, there was only  three people that appeared  before the commissioners to  protest its purchase, and these  three people all represented  local trucking concerns, who  stood to lose work through its  purchase.  I maintained then, and I.  still maintain, there was plenty  work for. the truck; in filling  the potholes in the road, and  other necessary work ,t& hayec  kept it busy.  The fact that the.truck was  not used fo do the work for  which it was intended, is no  argument against its purchase.  And I predict that if it is sold,  it will be purchased by one of  the local trucking concerns at  a "great Slaving to them, and  will be used to do the work  f orv which it was originally  purchased; and instead of .the  taxpayers getting the. work  done at cost, they will have to  pay cost plus profit to the  new owners.  I know of no other village  Gower Gleanings  BYi GYPSY TOWERS  The G ower Point unit of the  St.  Bartholomew's  W.A.  held  its regular monthly meeting at  the new home of Mrs. Harry  Thorne on Gower Point Road.  Owing  to   inclement   weather,  the January meeting had to be  postponed so a large percent-  . age of the members turned up,  , Thursday. The Reverend Hugh  Oswald  gave a special prayer  for the- late King, and spoke  with hope for the reign of the  new sovereign Queen Elizabeth.  A miniature rock garden made  an attractive table  centre for  the. tea table, and Mrs. Oswald  was asked   to preside  at   the  urn,  when refreshments  were  served at the close of the business meeting.  Mr. and Mrs. James Beaton  duly arrived with their furniture, and? Sandy, and are en-  deavcrihgvto adjust themselves  and themf&dded equipment to  what we^hope will   be 4&eir  permanent    home.

Since the original request  was forwarded the price of  freight has gone up and "other  expenses of which we are'dub-  vious has been ad<led."  Poultrymen are the first to  be hit by the increased freight  rates, the .association pointed  out. Further recommendations  will he made to ihe authorities.  A Bee Club may be formed,  provided    sufficient    members  show an interest in the plan  presented by Norman Stewart.  Anyone interested in the Bee  Club idea, should get in touch  with Mr. Stewart. A meeting  of the new unit was held at  Mr. Stewart's home, Monday.  It was decided to have the  Howe Sound Farmers' Fair,  Committee meet on Monday.  Further information can be  found elsewhere in this paper.  The committee is loud in  Urging farmers and gardeners  to plant a few extra seeds in  their gardens for the fall fair.  Particular attention should be  paid to planting^ of vegetable  and flower seeds to be shown  at the annual demonstration.  It is suggested that now is  not too early for starting on  the needlecraift and handicrafts.  We learn that the humble  wasp was the first wood pulp  maker and it was from him  that man learned to make pulp  from this source. The wasp  uses' this material in building  his nest.  Ho Such Word  It seems so ridiculous with  the amount of forest? conservation and replanting of trees to  be carried out in this and many  more forest countries, that  thetre is no such word listed in  our dictionaries. In its narrowest sense the word means to  replant in areas where once  forest grew. It is about time  that this word be listed in our  dictionaries in view of the  awakening of man to the need  of reforestation programs.  n'pow��*  YOU WANT  Now GMC's offer more power to haul  more pay loads!

So the days go on, and  barring minor back glidings/  spring shows every sign of becoming a reality. A reality  which will bring with it a  bright rash of seasonal "events  ��� some new, some traditional.  Signs of activity are not too  apparent  yet,   but   there   are  ttoss lary  VANCOUVER. ��� So far as  the   ?British    Columbia   Coast  \St��am?ship se^^  dian   Paeiiie   Railway is eon-  rerned. the 42-year old? steamer  ''* Prinsess Mary"' is no" more.  Now tied up in harbor at Vic-  faint rumblings of to-be teas, toria, B.C., a "for sale" sign,  dances, bazaars, concerts, plays hangs from the. prow of the  and meetings ad infinitum, veteran steamer whose name  Women are beginning to won- was known in almost every  der if the out-of-this-world seaport ins the British Co'lum-  cost of living will crack enough >ia mainland and Vancouver  to cover a springlike something Island areas'. #6r 15 years the  or other to brighten their 'OPrineess Mary'' ' plied the  wardrobe, or if it's to be a popular ' and scenic tourist  straight case of keeping the route between Vancouver and  junior   brigade  covered   from Skagway, Alaskay and at >one  now till bathing suits.  The political pot is steaming  gently with periodic eruptions  forcasting   the   possibility   of  some mad boiling indicative of  en   election.    There   is   much  speculation  and   argument as  to  what   house  flag  will*   fly  over the member for MacKenzie riding, once the rift in the  Coalition   party    reaches. the .  divorce stage. It's very interesting   the   number of people  who seem to get their information  right   from the   horse's,  mouth. The  only snag is that  there are so many horses that  those of us in, the grandstand  have difficulty  trying to figure   out who   has   the   inside  track.    They  all   look   fairly  convincing.  One  thing is certain, ihe tub-thumbing will not  be lacking in vehemence.   .  While we may be uncertain  as to which direction the political wind will blow, those  in  the Sechelt area'*'need have'no  uncertainties as to! what will  happen  if  their  houses  catch  fire. With speed', calmness and  utmost  efficiency  the  Sechelt  Volunteer   Fire 'Brigade   will  put the fires ,out. This body of  local citizens, with little or no  publicity  or outside help; has  knit itself into a' working unit *  of which we can be very proud.  The fear is greatly minimized  by   the   knowledge   that   the  SFB is as good as it is. For  their work in the past, and the  calls of the future, Ave salute  them.   (I don't know a> thing  about   their financial   affairs,  but I bet that if the odd doll'ar  was sent this way, they could  use it for our benefit.)  Today, Twelve took his last  lunch to the sehool where his  roots have been dug in for the  past five yeays.  By  the  time  this comes off   the press, _ he,  and sixty other children, will  have made four return trips to  �� ihe   new   Elphinstone   Junior-  Senior High Schoolat Gibsons.   .���  Undoubtedly   this   move   will  halve its effects. It  is a long  step   along   that   road which  leads to being grown up. Not  in   the   time   sense,   but   the  learning to adjust to an alien  world. New surroundngs, new  faees and new routines. Some  will     adapt    quickly,    others  slowly,    depending    on    their  individual ability to stand on  their own feet. Their parents,  too, will face a change in the  order   of   things.7 Keeping  a;  weather eye  on  an  off-spring  by remote control will require  more effort than it did when  he or she was in comparatively  close proximity. It* will need a  greater  effort to  keep  aware  of how they are getting along  generally,   and   to   cope with  any   specific   problems   which  might  arise.' Nevertheless,  we  eon't live our children's lives  for them, and it seems to me  that   this ' step   into  a larger  world   is   being m'aide' in  the  easiest way possible.  They go  as a group, they go with staff  members, who know them *in-  dividually and collectively and  they do come home to roost at  the end of the day. So to all  of them ��� Happy landings!  time operated as a night? boat?  between Canada's third larg-  ., est. city,. Vancouver, g and /Victoria, the provincial capital.

A wedding of interest to Sechelt and Chilliwack, was held  when Mary, eldest daughter  of Mr. and-Mrs. Peter Klassen  of Chilliwack, wa's united in  marriage to  Charlie Jonas of  Sechelt at the First Mennonite  .Church, Chilliwack. Revierend  Gerhard Peters^ offieiating.    '  The Church was a mass of  fall flowers and beautifully  decorated.  The bride chose a floor  length dress of white satin  with Peter Pan collar aud tight  fitted bodice with long lily  point sleeves with pearl beaded  halo head-dress with flowing  veil and carried red and white  carnations.  Bridesmaid was Fay Johann-  spn of Cloverdale, who wore a  pale blue floor length dress of  ? organdie with cap sleeves and  elbow length white kid gloves.  She also wore a small white  flower French chapeau and,  shoulder length blue veil and  carried pale pink carnations  and white chrysanthemums.  The best man was Pete  Klassen, the brother of the  . bride. The choir sang during  the ceremony arid a quartet  sang during the signing of the  register.  A wedding reception 'was  held in the Church   Hall   for  200 guests when Mary Brock,  Nettie Bergen, Hilda Warken-  tine and Annie' Zaeharias aeted  as servetieurs.  A three-tier wedding cake  centred the beautifully appointed table.  The young couple will reside  in Chilliwack. Charlie Jonas  is a well known Sechelt boy,  a grandson of Johnny Wilson.  Beaver Lodges  Beaver lodges- often serve  purposes other Mian providing  shelter and protection for  beavers, and are quite, frequently 'cosmopolitan' lodges.  Often the Canadian Goose  takes up rooms on the apex of  the lodge, there to lay her eggs  and build the family nest.  Then a little further down, the  muskrat and water shrew are  known to take up residence  beneath the eaves, and little  fish se<ek refuge in the crevices  made by the interlacing of  submerged sticks. So, the1 industrious beaver sets up a  wilderness hotel . for a great  many of natures' children.  Thursday February 14 1952   ihe Coast News  Use Coast News Classified  The Nanaimo Towing  Co. Ltd.

MLA, disclosed that an aux-
. iliary ferry service has beeu
assured by top executives of
the Blatek Ball* Ferries.
"I was at a meeting of the
Blaick' Ball Ferries,'' .wrote
Colonel Maclntyre, "at which
Colonel George Paulin, Captain
A. Peabody and Mr. Muckley
were present. There is no doubt
they will be instituting a service to both Gambier and K^elats
Islands in the immediate
future."  -
Asked for his comments,
Captain Drage, who ha's been
negotiating for'' over ia year
with both the Provincial Gov-
