He told each member it was  their duty to promote the  work of the Board and to keep  it strong and progressive.     &  The meeting heard reports  from the various committees,  and backed a proposal to have  the group name changed to  the Pender Harbour and District Board of Trade. "This  will take care of the manv  outlying areas which could  feel left,out," Board President  Lloyd Davis said..  In his discussion of policy,  President Davis said, "it will  be the plan of the; future meetings to make them interesting  and educational by means 5of ,  ffuest speakers * and movies.  The/meetings are Qpen to all  prospective members;" . he  said. "Join and he(lp your  Board hern your community  prosper and arrow."  He quoted section eight,  article threei of the bylaws.  "Any reputable person, directly or indirectly interested  in   tra^de,    commerce    or   the  economic and* social welfare of  the district shall be eligible  for membership in the Board."  A vote of thanks was recorded the Legion branch for  its donation of the movie projector.  It was pointed out the Legion donates the projector for  worthwhile community projects.  A story has been circulating  in error that the Board of  Trade owned the projector  which has been many times in  use'. The unit is owned by the  Legion.  Batt Scores  Oko Ruling  Selling of margarine in  one pocket and the coloring  in another, was branded as  "ridiculous" by B. M. Maclntyre, MLA, when he spoke  in Victoria, *today.  The MLA contended that  housewives should be spared  the w,ork of mixing the two.  ��� Hints from parliament  . lead to the belief that a  definite stand will be taken  by the government on what  has been termed "the silliest  legislation on the books.''

We sometimes think horse  sense went out of fashion with  the horse.  Maybe you have noticed it,  but the most important, line  in some letters is - the postscript'.  VICTORIA. ��� In a clean-cut reply to the throne speeeh,-  B. M. Ma'clntyre, MLA, pleaded for better roads, larger appropriations, scored certain  government criticisms and laid down  the gauntlet for his McKenzie Riding.  Mr. Maclntyre, in his speech  First figures revealed by  Black Ball Ferry Company  following five and one half  months operation are encouraging and far exceed the company's fondest hopes.     '  B, 1VL Maclntyre, today revealed the company had first  believed it would take . five-  years' before it could operate  in the black side of the ledger.  The firm has already made  a profit >every month of its  operation and provided for  sinking fund out of its surplus.  There were 3,554 trucks  conveyed on the Quillayute  during the first recorded period while slightly more than  .10,000 automobiles w-ere carried. Passengers conveyed during the five and half months,  "numbered  66,593.  "This means," said Batt  with a grin, "that every adult  on the Peninsula uses the  ferry five times per year."  The car ferry schedule may  be boosted from present five  trips per day to. seven, starting April 1, and when, the  ���"Port Mellon road is completed the company may add  another ferry," he said.  He again reiterated the  company's promise to provide  a .fee'der/service "at an early  this afternoon, lauded the  premier for .taking the tough  course and not the "popular"  one of giving in to demands  in regard to the three hot  issues of the moment; the  B.C.H.I.S., Workmens' Compensation and the) Industrial  Conciliation Act recommendations,  Batt said he was pleased to  see this session would grant  relief to widows of men killed  in industrial accidents. The  present sum for women will  be boosted from $50 to $75 per  month, while thei childrens'  quota will be raised from the  present $12 eiach to $20 per  month.  He spoke on the high rate  of industrial workers in his  riding and "appreciated increase in compensation to be  granted."  This will average not less  than $15 more per week.  ,H?>ei demanded   the    govero-  l- m ent spend $100,000 on main -  tehahce of rOads in the riding  imnisfre��r ^  brings inr his estimate^, there  be another $300,000 for the  new road portions necessary  to ? link   Powell,.  River   with  Vancouver via the Peninsula.  He estimated that 12 miles of  new  road  would be  essential.  Touching on the B.C. Hospital Insurance, the MLA suggested that all hospital financial losses will have to be borne  by the government plan. "If  they want the hospitals to  succeed.''  Urging increased road expenditures, Mr. Maclntyre  pointed out thei riding "is on  the threshold of a new industrial era." He drew attention  to the" gre<at tourist potential  and the "increased traffic on  roads when the 2,000 automobiles at Powell River are-  tapped."  He   urged  immediate  work  be done! on the roads prior to  "the coming   traffic   change,,  which will make   poor   roads  deplorable."  Proper road standards have  to be' maintained he said.

This is the third time," he  i ( ml  said in his speech in answer  to "the throne speech today,  "I have brought up the problem of management licenses  which affect the future of the  independent logger.

"I believe  there  is  a: place'  for    Forest.    Management-    Licenses," he said.

British Columbia.  onaU  Identify your home  From time to time ��� and this is one of those times ��� we  get requests from those of our readers engaged in the various;  branches of service to householders who must make their way  to different addresses throughout the day and night. " Why-  won't people number their houses .so they can be easily be seen  cat all times?" they ask.  There are probably several excuses, none of them justifying the trouble they cause. One of the most common is for a  resident of some years' standing to assume that "everybody  fenows me" or "everybody/knows were I live."  ���; Faillaey of this particular excuse is that deliverymen and  ^others. engaged in services to households are continually changing, and while everybody in town may know where Joe Doakes  livjes, the -newcomer has to find out by several trial runs.  iOtlher complain are against the people who tuck their  nouse mnmbers up under ai porch roof, or fasten them in front  -of -a porch post where, though quite easily seen in daylight,  ;ibey disappear in the dark and remain there even when th,e>  porch liglrfc is on. ..-.-���  And against the people whose house is some distance from  ihe road, or where the garden is so arranged as to hide the  jbouse number from easy view while on the street.  On the other hand, there is the- majority of residents who  2iave been quite thoughtful about the identification on their  ?homle, and have overcome individual- problems of locating the  ���iiumbers in a variety of ingenious ways. **'���-.;  . A simple way to test your, own home is to stand on they  street, both in daylight and at night, and assume you are in afc  hurry and are looking for the number. If you can spot immediately ��� allowing for the fact that you know where it is ���  then yours will pass. ~  If not, you should take steps to ��ee that it is properly  identified. It will save your service men many useless steps and  some day may even save a1 life or property . . . poissibly your  own.    ,  As our complainants say: There oughta be a law.  Those blank spots  There's nothing easier than; writing an editorial��� next  week's editorial, that is.  When the paper is put to'bed for a week, the blank spaces  fill up almost magically in one's mind. There aiie a thousand  things to write   about ��� the peace   talks,   th^e weather, local  politics gardening.  ,yfyr %utthen the days slip away.,The subject takes on a.strange -  delusiveness. Peace talks are too fluid to pin down on paper. To-day 's thoughts on the weather are out of date by the time the  ;p3/p,er is out next w^eek. Loca'l politics ar,e not too interesting at  if.he moment? and what's happened to that full-blown enthusiasm for gardening we had last we<ek?  As the days get longer the thousand subjects contract just  as majically and relentlessly a's they expanded a week ago-  Pretty soon, there's just a space left and one's ideas seem  inadequate tp fill it.  That's when it's nice to be able to chat with one's readers,  to sit down and pound out a few lines like the.se about nothing  or .almost nothing.  "Undoubtedly, there'll he a. thousand ideas for editorials  ."just as soon as this is put in the basket for the printers. Next  -week's columns will ha'v,e a thousand new ideas.  But for the moment, how's the weather out your way, Do  yon think there'll be any more snow?  The Nanaimo Towing Co. Ltd.

Criticism by parents, ratepayers  and teachers, provided it is sincere and based upon accurate information, can make a very valuable contribution to our school, our teaching methods and the effectiveness of education in todays' changing world.  In these time of high taxes for defense and social  security, and a steadily climbing cost of living, it is easy  to fall into the dangerous state of taking education for  granted. Education Week is a time for every citizen to  clarify his or her thinking on the real purposes of education���to focus the ispotlight on all its aspects and  to strengthen this bulwark of our democracy.  Your interest, your ideas, your active participation  are vital to the improvement of education in Canada.  This home, the church, the school, the farm, industry and  commerce,, management and labour, all have responsibilities in this continuing process.

Driving force behind the  actual operation is Long Time  Logger Walter Morrison -whose  wife must be one of the nicest  looking timekeepers and first  aid attendants on all of the  West Coast.  Andy's Bay, with a shore  line three miles in extent has  water "pockets" more than  300 ��e<et deep, giving ample  room for the rafts which go  und,er water in their special*  cab la meshed bag to a depth  of forty feet.  It ta'kes three weeks sometimes to break up a Davis into  its 20 or 30 sections of flat  booms each with their own  selected and often graded logs.  In the rafts, some of which  are the Gibson type, made famous by the Gibson Brothers,  one time owners of the Machi-  gonne Ferry, are many types  and classes of logs. These have  to be reclassified and each log  hand poled into its own boom  section by onei of the 24 men  working at the business.  Truly can it be said the sea  is their highway for only by  water can the self-contained  camp get its supplies. The MV  Bonnabelle makes weekly trips  from the city, but a large percentage of the traffic is supplied by tugs, arriving from  Vancouver in order to tow part  of the 300 million feet oi logs  handled annually;..  This figure may well place  the operation in th,e largest of  its kind, certainly it tops all  of B.C. The annual turnover at  Andy's*.Bay is believd tp be  equal to the cut of the largest  logging operation in B.C;.  A new era may welt be open-  - ing.up for th<e; f ajmijy. residents,  of the camp.,' snugged into a  small shelf on the cliff face.  Plans are now w:eil under way  for construction of a! road from  New Brighton, two and a half  miles, away.  It is believed the work can  be completed this summer "at  a very low. cost. The natural  terrain makes it i: easy for a  roadway."  This means that children,  now being conveyed by boat  to school, could travel overland in safety, and camp residents could take part in the  social^ life of the Island as well  as having access to stores and  the post office.  Said "Sparky" New, "This  road is all important to us. It  will give these fine people an  opportunity to become part of  the larger picture. Local residents will have a chance' to  work at the camp. This is actually the only industry on the  Island, and We are anxious to  see, residents get the advantage of such an opportunity to  work."  There is nothing short term  about Andy's ,Bay: operation,  according to Walter Morrison.  "We are going to be here  just as long as logging is part  of the B.C. ��� economy. Every  plan we make is a long term  one. We are building for the  future.' With None of the finest  natural booming grounds in  the country, we aim on being  here to run it for many, many  years to come."  One of the unique facts to  booming or boom-breaking at  Andy's Bay ��� named after a  well known tug boat skipper.  Captain Andy Johnston, still  plying these waters ��� is the  great amount of fresh water  flowing into the harbor thus  offsetting "to a great extent," the voracious attacks  of the toredo borer.  The toredo, which annually  Thursday February 28 1952   The Cc&st Mews  ruins millions of dollars worth  of lumber, cannot live in fresh  water or in salt water with a  low  saline  content.  From Andy's Bay, on the  west coast of Gambier, goes  the logs which supply many  of the mills on the Fraser.  Coastal Towing is the parent  company, but its work is on a  contract basis with any and  all sawmills or logging firms.  With former M. and. M.  logger Walter Morrison at the  head of the booming branch  there is every indication that  what nature started eons ago  will finally be completed as  the greatest industry ever to  enter Gambier.  Often facetiously known  as  a  Gambier's last hope," the  booming grounds may well be  the means of stabilizing the  economy and bringing prosperity to one of the loveliest  islands along this coast renowned for its beauty.  Breaking up of the Cecilia  may be the mark which ends  a'n era and starts yet another  of prosperity and success.  Only limited by the extent of  our greatest coastal resources  logging.  If optimism and foresight  can assure success then can  Andy's Bay and its intrepid  residents look forward into a  future of success and the picture of work well done.

The cost of living has reach- :  ed an unprecedented high,  every wage ea'rner is unhappily  aware of the fact that regard-  les the' size of his cheque, it's  not big enough.'And yet, today  wore frequently than ever he  is asked to donate to. organized  charities. If it's not Cancer  Fund, it's the-Arthritis Society. If not the T.B. Society, it's  the Community Chest. Most  people were not aware that so  many diseases were running  rampant in our civilization until organizations were formed  to combat them.  Currently, the B.C.

Isn't  that   enough?  Why should you be called upon  to  further   pay   for you  and  . your families protection?  The answer lies possibly in  why the Kinsmen Clubs ���  composed of average young  Canadian family men, and taxpayers like yourself ��� decided  to organize an annual campaign io raise funds to fight  polio.  HERE ARE THE  REASONS  1. The great need for the  B.C. Polio Fund lies in the  fact that after -the first three  months there is no hospitalization, and no social service of  ai-ry kind available to the average wage earner or his family,  who is unfortunate enough to  contract polio.  2. If any member of your  family contracts polio, the  cost after the first three'  months to fully rehabilitate  this patient, often is as much  as $500 per month.  3. The Provincial Govern-  ment conducted an experiment  with three victims of poliomyelitis. The figures from, the-  first completed case show that  the cost of complete rehabilitation shared by the Kinsmen  Clubs, and the ProvineLaJi  Government, was $7,500.. If  this victim had been treated,  but not fully rehabilitated;, it  would have cost the taxpayers  $17,000 for every v ten year  period of the patient >s life, and  that until the Provincial Government is.: in a position) to  take over this /necessary work,  your dollars will conthmae to  affect these savings.  er s Right  Sir.

A certain percentage of the  children of every generation  are uncivil. This,proportion is  not, however, 100 per cent.  What makes it appear so to  some critics is the measuring  of the outward modes of behavior of one generation with  the yardstick of another.  Men do not kiss ladies'  hands today as a formal greeting. Very seldom do they doff  their hats, and as often as not,  they do not give up their  ���seats in a conveyance.  We of this adult generation  have never seen the first of  these customs. We have seen  the second pass almost.entirely  away, and the third decline  sharply. Are, then, greetings  that do not include kissing  the hand, doffing the hat, or  offering the  seat,  insincere1?  Unless we. keep our finger  on the pulse, we are prone to  lose count of change, and to  be unaware of what the sincere salutation of the present  younger generation is. We  cannot trammel or alter it,  any more than our elders could  alter ours twenty or forty  years ago.  And we of a generation or  two ago look back now  through rather rosy glasses on  the days when we; were the  current "little scalawags."  Yours very truly,  Lestier R.

One Child's Record  Sunset Hardware  Phone 32 ��� Gibsons, B.C. Indents  Lowell S. Besley, Dean of  the Faculty of Forestry of the  University of British Columbia, in addressing the Prince  George Section of the. Canadian Forestry Association recently, pointed out the fact  that ������there were too few. stu-  ,'dehts ; entering professional  forestry as a< career.  The rapid strides in. forestry  practices throughout the Province in the   past  five years,  :and the discovery on the part  of '.prospective employers, that  graduates  make   good  leaders  in   logging    and manufacture  operations as well as the technical   forestry   positions, have  created  a demand for graduates far in excess of the supply.. He  stated that last May  there   were    on   the * average  ;three jobs for every one of.the  '90 students graduating in for-  festry engineering at that time.  'This year  there  will be  only  -40 graduating and for the next  two   years' this   number   will  cdrop to (about 30 each year.-  v' 'The    rapid    expansion   of  forestry activity can be expected to continue to accelerate," prophesied the. Dean,  "and jobs will be at, a premium, just as they are today."  He urged students to investigate the opportunities, that  l^e; ahead for them in forestry.  lower Gleanings  BY GYPSY.

In  this fashion did Liberal Association President  Captain  Andrew Johnston forecast the future polities here..'  Recently returned  from  the  Legislative opening services at  Victoria, the magistrate was  close mouthed on what B. M.  Maclntyre, MLA, is going to  do.  14Mr. Maclntyre will? not  divulge his stand until following thie present sitting," he  said. "He was elected as Coalitionist and he will ��� remain as  such until the; next election."  It was first rumoured the'  popular MLA would run on  an Independent liberal ticket  but this idea has bejen killed  with Maclntyre's recent statement that the "constitution of  the Liberal organization will  not  allow   for  qualification."  In other words, Independent  Liberal seems to be out. Mr.  Maclntyre did not mention  running outside the Liberal  ticket which could he done.  He could then still run as an  Independent Liberal.  Said Captain Johnston, '' If  of success and bright future."  Captain Johnston, who was  accrm.pani.ed by Mrs. Johnston to the "impressive,"  opening ceremonies, predicted  the single transferable* vote*  would be the means used ai  the next election, "which  quite probably will be sometime early in June."  It is known that background"  work is now being done by  election officers for an early  trip to the polls.  Nominating convention for  the McKenzie Riding Liberals  will be held sometime in  March, it is believed.  Said o'ne long time Liberal,  when questioned on our present MLA's action. "Batt is  the mail we would like to see  take hold of the Liberal ticket  and judging by his past  actions, I cannot see what else  he will do."
