Peppaiv  Farmers' Institute advisory board  member, told   a  meeting of  the Gibsons* and District Board of Trade on Monday evening..  "When a nation has to import foodstuffs, it starts going downhill," he said, and   cited   the cases of   Great   Britain,   ancient  Greece, and Rome.  Last year, the province, of  B.C. imported $25,000,000  worth of foods, while many  B.C. farmer.*; ploughed their  own crops under. This, he  pointed out, was. due to the  fact that marketing boards,  and government controls prevent* the sale of many of our"  own products. The freight ors-  imported eggs, he said amounted to about three cents a-  dozen.  Mr. Peppar pointed out that  the    Fraser    Valley    was    no  longer  a-farm    area     It' was;  now a .semi-residential district'  and  was unable    to  feed  its  OAvn population; let alone' the-  population  of. Vancouver.  He said that the PGE had'  the greatest potential of any-  railway in the world, as it  passed through the rich-Bern-  berton, valley, through coa��  lands, and through vast- deposits of calcium. The $4,000,-  000 road from Squamish to*  ���Vancouver was a' waste ^^  money, according to him, and;  he '��� remarked that "Boss"  Johnson--was-pursuing a stub.-2  born policy in its construction'.:  He remarked that- Mr..

Mr. Roberts led the choir,  comprised of male and female  voices from Sechelt, Selma.  Park, Wilson Creek., Roberts  Creek and Gibsons, through a  widely varied programme.  , Selections offered by the  entire   choir were:  "'Men .lot"  Harlech," "Kentucky Babe/"  "Mighty Lak' a Rose," "The  Lost Chord," "Who is . Sylvia," "Still is the Night,"  "W�� Rock Away," "Passing  By," Bells of St. Mary's,"  ''Where 'ereyou Walk," "The  Lord's Prayer,'' *'Bird Songs  at Eventid'e" and "Dear Land  of Home."  The male chorus sang  "Down to Rio" and "Shenandoah," with L.S. Jackson  soloist, and the ladies; chorus  sang "Thanks be to God.?''  ort was   Mrs* Beiiilia Austin  ;?Mrs. ?Bertha Austin of Gibsons passed away 5 Tuesday  evening in her 8Q;th year.  Funeral service will be held  in the Anglican Church on  Saturday, April 26, at 2 p.m..  with interment iri the Stechelt  cemetery. Mrs?

Mr. Skellett  said that he believed the news  report was reasonable correct,  and hinted that some of Mr.  Ritchey's statements were incorrect.  The contentious, news report ,  stat/ed  that Mr. Boucher had  resigned from the council and  that he owned the subdivision  served  by  the  water  systeih.  Neither   of   these   statements  was cOrrectj according to Clerk.  Robert Burns who also stated  that the   news report  implied  that  Mr.   Boucher  was .using#  the village council for his own  personal gains.  Council then went on record  as not accepting the recommendation of the special committee to offer $1600 for the  pipeline, 'with Mr.. Skellett  a gain ^abstaining from voting.  They accepted a motion to pay  the 'sum of 1650.57 ��� which  was the actual cost of the installation. Again, Mr: Skellett  abstained. ,'.."'���  Com. R. Maicnicol was absent  from- the meeting, and Mr.  Skellett ssaid that he would  not vote on the question until  Mr. Macnicol was present at  a meeting.

A well attended meeting of  the Pender-Harbour Board of  Trade on Tuesday heard B.  M. 'Batt" Maclntyre review  the year in the legislative  chambers, and report on Peninsula  progress.  "Batt'' stated that survey  crews were already in the area  for the Agamemnon road;  that the Halfmoon ,Bay cutoff would be started next  month.';-- and that a crusher  had been obtained for Peninsula roads. \  He al*o outlined, comprehensively, the hospital insurance legislation as well as  other legislation' covering the  entire province.  The member.*, of the Board  of Trade decided. to erect a  "Welcome .. fo    Pender    Har-.  railway, if his -party ' were? in,'  ; the majority in the House;'     :  ..He. asked that the board of:  trade   assist  farmers  in-'their  fight for the PGE and in,'get-'  ting a bigger   grant    for-the  department of agriculture. The;  present grant was only 0.8 pee  cent of the entire budget, the  lowest in Canada, he said.  Closing  his  remarks,  which-  were    not   without  .humorous  "digs"  at  everybody,   includ-^  ing the farmers,  he  said that  the   Peninsula   would    have  a  population    of   50,000   within  the next five  years,  and that-  the  Gibsonsi district   had   the-  finest berry area hr the proW  ince.  Before listening to Mr.'  Peppar, the meeting discussed-  the building of restrooms for  visitors to the  village.  Introducing five new meui^  hers to the Board of1 Ttade,*'.

Lucken  and Mrs. H. Stockwell, and  "Roses of Picai-dy," by Mrs.  Ed Lee and Mrs. J. Lumsden.  Mrs. L��ee sang "Morning,"  and Mrs. Stockwell "Little  Grey Home in the West" as  solos.  During intermission, with  Miss Karen Stockwell accompanying, Mr. Roberts led the  audience in community sing  ing, and later in the program  he parodied "Sing Me to  Sleep," then, in more serious  vein, rendered "Laugh Clown,  Laugh."  Mrs. Evelyn Clark, president of the Headlands branch  of the VON, sponsors of the  programme, spoke on behalf  of that organization, and was  answered by Captain Andrew  Johnston, president of the  Sechelt Loca] of the Canadian  Lesion,  from the audience.  Another well-discussed question was what to do with the  lagoon in front of the Garden  Bay hotel. There had been  talk of turning it into a swimming pool, but some members  have changed their mind; ���  and it looks as if more study  will be required on that subject.

(L>dl  ���t  ilonate  s ���  Now, Talking of Roads.  Six weeks ago we were in California. We went down to  .have a' look at the California highways that people talk so much,  about.  You know the kind of talk: "Roads! We don't know what  roads are here in Canada! You ought to see the California  roads."  So we did.  Highway 101 from Crescent City to 'Frisco has more curves  than. <a .string of chorines; and pot-holes enough to make driving  anything but a pleasure.  .Sure, they admitted the road was in poor shape.  ���"We had a lot of rain, thi* year," they explained.  Which goes to show that if you get a lot of moisture, and  .?a lot of summits and valleys, you are bound to get lousy roads.  Juid B.C. has been putting up with that sort of stuff for years.  No, the B.C. roads' are a credit to the people of the prov-  .ince,   for we have a far   greater   area and much,   much   fewer  .people to pay the bill.  Now, you take the Pender Hal-bom* road.  People have 'said it's as rough as the Skookumchuk when  running full blast. But, that ain't true. And we ought to fight  that kind of talk, because it's a good road ��� for an unstirfaced  highway. .  And if the general public around Vancouver, and around  other parts of" B.C., and around the United States, get to hear  the false statements that our roads aren't good, they'll go elsewhere for their veacation this summer. And we would like to  have them come up here and see us.��� and leave some of their  . ea'sh with our business men.  We don't want to"'tell''em the roads are like six-lane super  highways. At the same time, we don't want to keep the traveling1 public away.  If we say our roads here on the Peninsula are as good as  California's famous Highway "101, we won't be lying too much.  At the same time, we've got to keep after Victoria until we  get^good black-top a'lli the way from Port Mellon to Agamem-  .non Bay ��� and then some.  ans Knew How  To Train Children  The American Indian had  much to teach us about rearing children to live free, useful, well-adjusted lives, says  Marie Sandoz in the May  Reader's Digest. Miss Sandoz  grew up near a Sioux reservation in South Dakota, and is  th author of two books on  Indians. Her article is condensed, from  Empire. ���  No punishing hand is raised  against the Indian, boy, yet he  learns discipline early. Indian  children do not cry, nor make _  more than a whimper at the  greatest hurt. The reason:  Indian mothers shut off the  first cry of the newborn, and  as often after that as necessary. This teaches the most  important lesson pf old Indian  life: No person can be permitted to endanger the people; .  no cry must, guide a ��� skulking  enemy to the village nor spoil  a hunt that might mean the  winter's meat for a tribe.  Indians who. have seen white  parents whip their children in  anger   consider   the   whites  a  brutal people who treat their  children    like    enemies,���' who  must be bribed or punished or  coddled.    They    believe    that '  children  so  treated, will  grow  up   dependent? 'and   immature,    ?  and  subject to fits of uncontrolled anger within the family  circle.  They   point.. to  the  increasing  lawlessness   and  violence of our young''people, so  often against   iheir   elders,  a  of  A  among  the.  loberts Creek Hall  Fetes 18th Birthday  gala night  By MADGE NEWMAN  May 24 will be a  iiere when the Community Hall  .celebrates its 18th birthday  ������with a dance and a town orchestra. The Hair Board has  .-ambitious plans for bettering  the hall, and to do so they  must raise money. This they  will never do as long as all  iheir efforts are exercised only  for the benefit of town orchestras, and after a session  of hard work and planning,  they bid a fond farewell to  the money they took in at the  door as it boards the ferry on  its way to othfer locales.  The  money   raising   efforts  of other organizations in this  district meet the same fate and  it's felt that under the.circumstances dances are a worthless  endeavor.  If dancing is a worthwhile  recreation for the dancing  citizens of the Peninsula, it  looks as if they must make a1  choice, namely, to forego dancing or to manage with a local  orchestra. Aside from tine, fact  that the local musicians are  just as good 'as the Vancouver-  it es-, they charge a fee which  can reasonably be paid by the  relatively small crowd, and  added to that, the money is  spent here in the conynunity.  Moreover,  there   seems   to  be  thing  unheard  Indians.  The     redskin  .has     alwiays'.  avoided any overprotection of  the  young.   When  the -Indian  begins to .crawl no one  cries,:  "No, no !" and dra'gs him back''-<  from  tlie  enticing red  of the ^  fire.

Over - familarity has  been discouraged since tlie  days of the skin lodges, when  perhaps seven or more lived  about ai winter fire.

I am told it is an admission  of poor dancing when the orchestra comes in for criticism.   -  Anyway, some cooperation  between the dancing crowd  and the sponsors of the dances  would be a very fine thing,  and necessary for the good of  the community.  m  ������tliiliiiifinmi  I  FOR THE VERY  FINEST  HARDWARE  CHINA and BRYGOODS  GROCERIES ��� DRUGS  FISHING SUPPIES  HOME ESSENTIALS  MURDOCH'S  MARINE SUPPLY  Pender Harbour, B.C.  i  FOR SALE  i ���   /���  Tenders are invited for the purchase of the following  sites and buildings:   ��� .  1.

During the discussion following this letter, a member  mentioned ' that the survey  crew are at 'Pender Harbour,  but the Public Wo'rkisi Department are very.short of personnel.       ��� y       .''������"'  President Mr; Kolterman  then   opened  a   discussion   on  the new transferable or alternative vote. Instead of voting  for just one 'candidate a person must vote for all candidates listed; numbering his.  first choice x or- 1, second  choice 2,  and so'on.       . :  Three weeks;after voting all  votes are counted. Time lay is  allowed to permit arrival of  ballots from outlying iareas[.  It cuts out all the fun��� no  staying up half the night to  hear results, or to find' out  how " old so and so'' is:, doing.  Ballots are then counted?for .  the first time.. A candidate  with a' majority vote is in  right'-'.away. A majority vote  is one more vote than all the  opponents -put together; V  Ballot�� 'are counted until a  majority vote is reached. ? So,  if a ballot is is only marked*  once, it is only used once.  Maybe I aim dumb and can  be educated, but I still prefer  the old system. Politics and  religion are two things, one is  usually . sure abput with no  wish ; to maka second, third,  or even more choicea However, I am open to suggestion,'  and the discussion will be  continued at the ?M?ay meeting.  - This .association has four  votes at the forthcoming con-  'vention, May 3, at Powell  River. President B. Kolterman  and vice-president Alf Young  will be going, and two,more  members -will be welcome.  There will boat transportation  from Madeira Park.

It is simple and fair. Under the old system of  voting, it was possible for the candidate or party with  a minority vote to get elected. For instance, if two candidates had 1000 votes each and the third had 1025, the  third candidate would win even though 2000 votes had  been cast against him; Under the Alternative Vote this  is impossible. Youemark the ballot thus: 1-for your first  choice; 2-for your second choice and so on. If, on the  -first count, there is no absolute majority for any one  candidate, the one with the fewest ballots marked in his  favor is dropped and his ballots distributed among the  candidates according to the second choices as indicated  on these ballots. Again, if on the second count, no absolute  majority is reached the same process would be used  again. Then, when the candidate who has more votes  than all the other candidates together is found, he wins  and is elected.  Remember, all you have to do is to mark a numeral  1-2-3-4 against the candidates listed on the ballot in  order of your preference.
