Introduced by his campaign  manager, Mr. Harry Davis, Mr.  Ma'clntyre .told   his   listeners,"  ���"In 1949 I was elected  as a  straight   coalitionist.   I  never  joined. Liberal or .Conservative  party. The, day that Mr. Johnson  dissolved the  government,  I was  again   free,  white  and  '���21, with no allegiance to anyone.  I knew I  was  going to  have to make a decision and I  gave   a   lot   cf   thought   anof  analysis. I am a staunch supporter   of  all  free; enterprise  systems.   I found   in7  looking  over the   Liberal   party  that  for 20 ,years they hatye  been  a potent force in the political  life of B?G.   There   has   been  great d:evelopme*rt under con-  iinuous  policy  of  Liberal administration.   This ? shows that  the    people    throughout    the  world haVe- had confidence in  the Liberal government of the  province of B.C. B.C. can and  will   continue   to   develop   in  f utu re yea rs by  even  greater  /leaps and bounds.'."' ���  After touching briefly oh his  work and accomplishments  duriner the past three years,  Mr. Maclntyre gaxe facts and  figures to support his statements, stressing local issues.

Speaking to an enthusiastic  audience,    chaired    by    Bob  Cormac,   Gargrave , flayed   the  Libera] party for its disregard  of the little man. "It is ridiculous."  he   said,  "to   expect  elderly people living on. small  pensions, seme lower than the  old age. pension, to pay $42 a  year  for Hospital  Insurance.  To   demand   such   payments/'  he   said, "was    equivalent   to  taking  food  off  their tables,  and  clothes   off  their  baelos.  A CCF Government will provide free hospital ccryerajge to  these    citizens,    and    immediately    eliminate    co-insurance  charges?'^'  He explained' how CCF  policy was based on peoples'  needs, completely free from  any influence hy big business.  "A party which is-, financed  as is the Liberal party, by big  corporations," he said, "is not  free to bring in legislation  which would charge these'  husines.��-es? with part, of the  cost of social welfare projects."    ���."������    ,.       ...  He criticized "Batt" Maclntyre for claiming he -Imd  secured certain public work  project for MacKenzie. "Public funds for road work must  ���not be nsed to bribe voters,"  he. said. He reminded his audience that t?e CCF had ai one  .time, or another won 25 seats  in B.C., enough to. form a government. He warned those who  said they -wanted a "government man" in V i c t o r i a.

In the good old davs a scholar could  leave school with?\ honr.r marks and still not have what it  takes to make a' place for himself in the bustling world of  business and industry.  To-day, it is���-��� different. Vocational training' is playing  an important part in :ch< olir;g, and young people are being  v taught   how to go about   getting   job.-,   in   the work-a-day  world ��� and how to hold th se jobs.  So. with this in mind,.the Coast New��s will be turning  over the entire issue of May 29 to the high school students.  They will writecthe editorials;'handle the reporting; the  . advertising; and the various local columns. The columnists  from the various centres along the Gulf Coast will be given  a holiday that week, while, the /Students ferret out the news.  It is a big undertaking for Betty Brvwn, ihe-.scho 1  issue editor; and her staff, but they are already p.oing  ahead with enthusiasm. It will be an is.-.ue worth reading;  it will contain many items of youth niws that are often.  overlooked by the elders who occupy the editorial chair.  ��� Meanwhile, if student? come along to a meeting to get  a write-up, or if-they solicit your assistance, please be cooperative. -  Gambier-Keats Ferry  Starts This Week  ��� This'week saw the start of  the first regular, service connecting Gambier Island and  Keats. Island witK Gibsons.  Operated by George Hunters'  20-passenger '' Sea , Wolf'' for  Black Ball Ferries Ltd., the  service is inaugurated primarily to provide a connection with the car ferry service,  but it is expected vthat many  island residents will take ad-  vanage of it for shopping  trips "to Gibsons. :f Z.  ?

The  first two weeks of operation  will be in the nature of an  experiment."  Gibsons Talent Night  Draws Big Crowd  ���������������-.'������  ��� -^  The Gibsons Talent night,  held last Friday evening, drew  a large, crowd despite the fact  that other important meeting;  competed for an audience.  Altogether; there were twenty  competitors, ? the age groups  ranging from 7 years to 18  years. -y-  ���In the 1 to 10 group, the  winner was. ..Nancy ?Duggin,  with Lyn Vernon placing second.

Finals for  the ?Peninsula will be, held in  Gibsons on June" 6.  Eckardt Speaks at  Sechelt Tea Party  Larry Eckardt was the guest  of honor and Mrs. Earl Dawe  the hostess last Saturday afternoon when >a group of Progressive Conservatives enjoyed  tea in the Sechelt Inn while  meeting and chatting with  their .candidate for the MacKenzie  riding.  Mr. Eckardt addressed the  group briefly, condemning Mr.  Kenney for the forest management licence legislation  which was putting the small  logging operator out of business. He also said that premier  Byron Johnson was responsible  for the highly unpopular hospital insurance legislation, and  premised that'the Progressive  Conservative party , would  make the hospital insurance  non-com pulsary when they  were elected to power.  Local Guides To Oo  To Camp In Ottawa  Two/ lucky Girl GirdVs will  be leaving in July for the  national Girl Guide camp in  Ottawa. They are Coral Benn  and Joanne Ritchey, both of  the First, Girl Guide Company  of Gibsons.  The two girls are first class  guides and have Pioneer badges, making them the only two  girls on the Peninsula who are  eligible to attend the big jamboree.

The timetable was designed  for ihe new ferry, which is a  "doubl.-"nder" and will not  have >to perform any time*  wa aintr maneouvres at either  end of the run. The Bainbridge  is al;o a larger vessel, accommodating 60 ears and 600 paJs-  sengers.

Lumber    Manufacturers  Association,    the    Workmen's  Compensation  Board  and  the  International Woodworkers of  America in. an effort to reduce  Z;ZM^i^^^^C^. &��$o!uie~ nnni-v  mum   for?  a    period \o��   'five1''  working    days,    thus' demonstrating   the  accident  production potential. The entire five  days were completed by 15,000  sawmill workers in  71 plants  with    only    four   compensible  accidents. All but three of the  mills completed the week with  a perfect score, and six of the  partieiants finished the entire  year without  an accident.  .   As a result of the effort put  into Sawmill Safety Week, the"  number  of  accidents  per million  man   hours worked   was  reduced from th�� normal weekly average of 25 to only 4-.

A workman who is  hurt suffers a great deal and  hses money; the sawmill is  put to great expense and; more  important, loses a valuable  employee. The average apparent cost of an. accident in  Briti :h Columbia's sawmills  today is $580.01 and this is  only one quarter of the actual  cost, according to National  Safety Council figures.

One of the headaches of the weekly newspaper is that the  entire outlook on the news front can change between deadline1  date and publication date. Last week we complained, editorially, that three political parties on, the-Peninsula'were dead from  the shoes up. Our stories on Page 1 of lalst week's issue gives  lie to our editorial statement. (The editorial page'was printed  two days before Page 1 was printed.)  The candidates are now beating their drums, and each drum  has a clearly defined rhythm. There are important issues at  stake next month, issues which may change the entire progress  of the Peninsula. We can't choose a main merely because he  happens to be a neighbor, or because we like the color of his  eyes. . '.''''        '     "> '. .  What the candidate stands for is all-important.  It is up to us to choose. And, if Ave neglect to cast our  ballot when election day comes, w-e have no.right to raise a fuss  if we aren't satisfied later.  Every Week a Special Week  It's got so that every week of the year has become a special  week for sombody. Some weeks, like Red Cross Week, or Fire  Prevention, Week, are important. Others, like Eat-More-Celery  Week, or National Cosmetics Week are of lesser, importance.  One of the biggest weeks of the year, coming up'this month,  is National Tourist Service Week, celebrated May 25 to 31.  t National Tourist Service Week is important to the Peninsula  because we can, and .should, make our tourist' business a big  business. v��  A buoyant, and prosperous tourist business in this area is.  not just the private concern of a few hotelmen, cafe owners, gas  owners, and merchants. It is the public concern of all of us'who  live and work on the Peninsula. '  We ought to realize ��� and most of us don't ��� what a  wonderful vacationland we live in, and what this Peninsula  could be, if developed according to plan.  .e&qers Right  Alitor, The Coast'NeAVs,  tiiri'y^ ,*..!&<..yty:*y I  "Hi -'yonr" issue of"*thev paper  for this week it is noted that  the Conservative (Progressive)  party has emerged from-, where  it is not quite clear. Is this a  case of Banquo's gliost, or  merely a stirring of the maggots   of' mortification!  One wonders who might be-  expected to vote Conservative;  certainly no one_ who works  for a living, and is familiar  with the record, should do so;  ���of course, wonderful promises  can be expected (for example,  remember ��� 1930i and "I will  BLAST my way into the markets of the world."); but very  many of the old-time Conservatives are "noAV. in the Liberal  camp. Seemingly the only  sound and sensible reason for  affiliation AA7ith either of the  old   parties   is   the    hope   of  i (  getting a ride, on the "gravy-  train," and pickings hay_ been  desperately    slim    for    many  years    for7  :the    Conservative  cohorts. To really get" the feet  in the  trough  one is  wise- to  be   tagged   "Liberal;"    (one  doesn't really have to liberal.)  SoAvith a party, Avell-organ-  ized   and   disciplined,   already  solidly in control of patronage,  at    least  -two    other    parties  offering  some  hope  of  relief-  from  the  thralldom of .inefficiency and? dictatorship, Avhile  on their r*ecord. no  semblance  of such relief can be expected  from   the 'Conservatives,   one  must maiwel at the effr6ntery  of  any   Tory   candidate Who  -asks  for public  support.*  Of course, as far as the big  companies; are concerned, they  probably care little whether  Liberals vor Conservatives are  elected, a's long as it is one or  the -other. The PoAvell ?River  Company^, (^oi^trolledrv I think, :  in Minnesota and Miami) and  the Pacific "Mills (Flieshack-  ers, of San Francisco), have  both received plenty of gifts  from both /Liberals and Conservatives, and may reasonably  expect such consideration to  continue.

Building up a bank account means work  and sacrifice. But Canadians know the  value of having savings handy in time  of opportunity or need: they maintain  73^ million savings accounts in the  chartered banks���almost twice as many  as ten years ago. At the same time  bank staffs have almost doubled. That,  and higher wages, have increased bank  payrolls almost three times.

Here in the North West  we can grow this luxury vegetable to perfection, and each  year finds it more popular.  This is the month to start the  seeds, and you can choose varieties maturing from autumn  to late spring, such at Winter  Mammoth, Autumn Protecting  and St. Valentine.

GROW MORE SHRUBS  For background- use a collection of the smaller shrubs  which makes a fine and-per-  ���manent show. While these are  expensive to buy, it is. surpris-  ing that so many people have  a fine shrub that is* outstanding, but make no attempt to  jstart cuttings or layers from  it. ���  May through August is a  good time to.take cuttings of  many plants,'both floAvers and  shrubs. A tiny /slip of new  ^growth, around /four inches  long,, is usual. Trim off all  leaves, except the top ones,  jand tuck the cutting for two-  thirds of its length in shaded  spot, pressing the soil down  firmly. By fall or spring the  slip will probably have taken'  poot and can be moved to the  Dpeh  garden.  Among the easier flowering,  shrubs are Forsythia, ?Fuchsia,  ECerria, Viburnum and Honeysuckle, while a much longer  list of shrubs 'can be increased  py partly ripened or hardAvood  3uttings in fall and winter.  : Some shrubs are best layered by burying part of a Ioav  branch, making a cut on the  underside of the buried part  and pegging it doAvn. Growth  ?rom this method is often? slow  3Ut results; are reasonably certain, if the neAv plant gets a  ��Ood root system before severing from the parent plant.

Voting system has been changed  to enable every voterr to cast his ballot  for more than one candidate in order of  his preference. /  When you vote under the Alternative Votej  system YOU GET MORE THAN ONE  .CHOICE. This will prevent' any candidate  being ejected on a minority vote as has  happened in the past. The candidate so  elected in each riding will have' received  an absolute majority over all other candidates combined.  HERE'S HOW YOU VOTE  WITH ALTERNATIVE VOTING  The Alternative Vote is as simple  as the voting system used before  only, instead of marking an X  against your one choice only, you  can mark 1-2-3-4 with your first  choice as number one, your second  choice as number two and so forth  in-order of your preference.

Progressive Conservative Party is pledged to careful,  efficient   and   honest   administration   and   to   courageous  development of the God-given and matchless resources of  rthis province for the benefit of all our people. We will protect  'freedom and enlarge opportunity for the individual as natural rights  of all those who dwell within our borders today, and as a heritage  for generations to come.  The B.C. Progressive Conservative Party believes that the welfare  ���of the people isbest assured by a minimum of compulsion by governments; that the increasing intrusion of government authority into  the private affairs of the individual must be curbed; that the growth  -of bureaucratic controls brings burdensome and destructive taxation,  and endangers the freedom of all our people. - f  ' '  The life of our province is the sum of the daily effort of all those  who toil in mill or mine, factory, field or forest; in office, shop, school  or home, and in the many other pursuits of our people. For all of  them, the opportunity to work and save, to win advancement by  -ability and application, to found and maintain families, to find  happiness and contentment, are of prime importance.  To achieve these aims, we pledge ourselves to deal reasonably and  justly with the problems of all our people, to ensure equality of  opportunity to all our citizens, to' preserve freedom and to oppose  monopoly.  The B.C.

The pairk.li.es at the foot-of  Elphinstone Beach road, which  ���cuts across the Sechelt Highway, ..or can be reached wa  Beach- Avenue, which commences j'ust below Roberts  Creek Post Office. There is  probably  an  absence   of road  changing times and conditions!.  And have a pleasant evening  to boot.  The project now under way  at the Community Hall is the  rest rooms. To this problem  the Board is bending , every  effort, and it behooves all of  us1, to assist in any way we  can, iSince the Hall is the  nucleus of all entertainment,  and therefore used by the entire population.

The Hall Board is coming  up with another dance on the  3?Lsty with "the" Sechelt orchestra to handle the music.  The Weiners  Were Good!  .  Judging from the number of  weiners eaten and the number  is" the -disgusting" collection"of    of   bottles  of  pop   consumed-,  debris, including carcasses of  animals, tossed from bridges  into the creeks, evidence that  we need assistance in keeping  our baek yards clean.

Gentlemen: ?��� ' ...  Having been over the proposed Agamemnon ferry road  a's far as we coiild go go by-  wheel, that is within 2 miles  of Ruby La��e, I feel thai your  department is failing in its  duty to the people of the Peninsula- Powell River, and also  the Black Ball ferry company.  There are very capable men  at present on,the ground that  are eager and willing to put  in the road NOW ��� not next  year or the year after, as. Mr.  Maclntyre implies in his campaign speeches. They have the  machines -and are offering *to  do the road so that it can be  used this year, amd having  ���seen the route, I do not see  any obstacle of any importance to stop them.  All we ask is your speeding  up of your survey crew, and  to meet these men, and make  a deal either by the hour, day  or station, and let them, put  the road in under your supervision. Surely, gentlemen, bureaucracy can . unbend that  much.  We do not hold with this  procrastination when there is  good weather for construction.  We feel entitled to ask that'  the Port Mellon debacle,be not'  repeated here; that is, starting  to build in the rain.  ���If you havd $200,000 as Mr.  Maclntyre says, then give the  local   men   a   chance ���  and  let's go!

Editor, The Coast News,  Sir: ���  An open, letter ^ %. the   Department of ^blicvWorks.;  I was almazed to read in  your recent issue, the statement by Mr. Batt Maclntyre,  that at his nominating convention at Powell River, he claimed the credit for"'a series of  public work projects during  the last three years in MacKenzie. Is the Liberal^ Association attempting to blungeon  their candidate into office by  an implied threat of more or  less road work in this constituency depending on how the  citizens vote? Since the Liberal  Party has tampered with our  voting procedure in this Province to maintain themselves  in office, I suppose black-mail  shouldn't shock us.  If it is the last thing a CCF  Government .does, it will be to  remove road work from politics, and plaice it under an independent highway commission, based on geographic  areas divorced from constituency boundaries.

Local campaigns will be conducted in more than 600 communities in all the ten provinces of Canada1. Keynote for  the campaign is the slbgan:  "Clean-Up! Paint-Up! Plant-  Up! Light-Up!"  Aimed at the overall improvement of the. Canadian  countryside, Beautifieation  Campaigns are ai factor in  making Canada attractive to  visitors from elsewhere and  play their part in the development of the important tourist  industry.  The Canadian Beautifieation  Association was formed in  1951 to carry on the work of  the Canadian Beautifieation  Bureau. With- headquarters in  Montreal it provides the national co-ordinate and assistance which are so very vital to  a< campaign" of this nature.  A number of Canadian organizations have in the past  extended their support to  Beautifieation Campaigns. Included are the National Film  Board, the Canadian Associa1-  tion of Exhibitions, Ontario  Horticultural Association, the  Can a di a.n Association of  Nurserymen, ?Dbminion Association of Fire Chiefs, the  Canadian Chamber of Commerce and the Canadian Paint,  Varnish and Laquer Association.  Much of the work is carried  oh at the community level by  the hundreds of Beautifieation  Committees which .each year  direct the conduct of their  own individual campaigns.  They receive a great deal of  support from the various  Junior Chatnbers of Commerce  across Canada, who have participated in Beautifieation  Campaigns for 'a. number of  vears. -  'Would You Change  JOBS"  for $20 a day commissions to  start?

Amounts   to  be  spent in   the  different  districts are  as  f ol-  ,   lows-: $15000 general maintain-'  .anee on the Islands  (52.miles  oi; road); $62,000 maintenance  ipf roads here; $20,000 Gibsons  yto    Gower   Point;   $12,000  to  take up. old bridges, build cul-  . verts, etc.,  on main road.  Although the - divisional engineer recommended 3t/_ miles  of road surfacing towards  Roberts Creek from Wilson  'Creek, the work cannot go  ahead because of insufficient  igravel in the  district.  Mr. Maclntyre stressed the  need of a. rock crusher. "I  have done air in my power,"  ihe said. '/Only one rock crusher has been loeatea and the  owners want $300 a day. If I  ���can find one for $80 per day,  this would be more in line."  Speaking  of   the - ferry,  he  said  his  efforts were  responsible for getting the bill before  the legislature with th.e result'  that   the  ferry  was in    operation in 1951 instead of several  years   later.   Said .Mr.   Maclntyre, "The boys- in the House,  were not   too   fussy about it,  but I carried on and went to  all   the  meetings.' Finally  I  'dined and wined, the members.  ... got   a   report   from   the  "traffic    engineers   of   the  BB  -line.    They    said    "not    very  ��ound. It will take 3 years of  pioneering before it will show  -   a. profit ��� two additionl years  for a sinking fund." ^  The ferry, he said has shown  ���a profit from the start. It has  carried   3,551    trucks, ��� 10,902  automobiles and 90,000 passen-  : g'ers.  In   the matter of   the Port  Mellon  Road,   Mr.   Maclntyre  phoned   Mr.    Byron   Johnson  and   told  him  he  "wanted a  I icommit?ment,, not  a ^promise,''  v and got. it,' with? ^he?'result that  ; a contract for $206,000 was let.  The.contract calls ,,for the road  v ?to be completed in September,  but it is  impossible until November   due  to  swamp   difficulties at the Gibsons end.  Of tire Liquor question, the  MLA said he believed the vast  majority of the people- wanted  a liquor store on the Peninsula', .and he was successful in  getting  one.  Since the VON grant comes  from  the provincial secretary,,:  ;who  is  also   the ' Miniver' of  -Education,   the Hon.  Win.  T.  Straith,   who    is    speaking  at  Gibsons on the? 14th. Mr. Maclntyre    suggested 'that   VON  representatives  write   up   the ���  whole story of that organization's. neecU and? present, it to ;  him;', then. "v  Touching on the subject of  BCHI Mr. Maclntyre said that  the operation of the province  of B.G. is the biggest business  of the province, and second  is BCHI. 740,000 people have  received benefits. 86 hospitals '���  have received payment in full  and the nursing personnel and  .others? connected with hospital  work^have benefitted in higher-  wages and salaries.  Mistake's^ have been made,  he said, and these will be  ironed out in *th.e next session.  Mr. Maclntyre made but one  promise, with which he wound  up his speech. "I will continue to try and do the very  best Tvean, with what ability  I have,  to work  on  your be-  :,haif.-,--";;i;  Captain Andy Johnston was  chairman of the meeting and  introduced Mr. Davis in these  words;."

Seagfam-  This advertisement is not published or  displayed by the Liquor Control  Board or by the Government of  British Columbia. , btsb  In fifteen years Mrs. Holmes  has carefully nurtured almost  five million moths, feeding  them their vitamins of fish  meal and yeast, seeing that  they have a pleasant, roomy  temperature of 80 degrees, and  even providing them with  special blanket materia, and  suits.  "Why, just a few years ago,  I got 74 suits for my moths,"  recalls Mrs. Holmes, "and it  is- one of my duties each day  to sprinkle healthy moths on  the  garments."  Every year a ceaseless battle  is -waged aigainst the onslaughts of moth larvae which  destroy millions of dollars  worth of clothing. That great  strides . have been made in  moth prevention is due, in a  way, to the strange position  which Mrs. Homes holds in the  Larvex plant.  . She raises the moths so that  the chemists may experiment  continually and also that dem-  onstsration dishes may be  made up which show woolens  that have been treated with  Laryex, and woolens that have  not been treated with the  preventive. .    .  EIGHT VITAL FACTS  Mrs. Holmes also has a few  vital facts on moth damage  prevention which may save all  of us a good deal of money  when moths gather in conclave  in' Spring. They are:   .  1. Contrary to; popular belief, the flying moth has jno  "mouth and cannot eat;     . ?���  2. Moth damage is caused  by the worms or "larvae that  hatch from the eggs laid by  the flying moth; ,.  v- 3. Killing the flying moth  scarcely prevents moth damage, because- the chances are  that most of her eggs have  already been laidT  4. Paper baigs often fail to  prevent moth damage, because  moth eggs laid in clothing are  invisible to the naked eye.  "When- the clot'hes are -packed  away with moth eggs on them,  the worms that hatch cause  greater damage because they  can  eait  undisturbed.  5. Odors such as paradichlo-  robenzene, naphthalene, camphor, tar and cedar have nO  effect on.the flying moth or  the mothworm. However, if  the gas; from camphor bath or  crystals, such as paradichloro-  behzeme' and naphthalene, is  sufficiently' concentrated and  hermetically confined these  substances sare  effective.  6: Spraying insecticides do  not mothproof because, while  they kill insects;, they evaporate and they leave the cloth  unprotected.  7. DDT, and 'DDT.'bombs,'  are improved insecticides but  not improved mothproofing  agents.. Use DDT to kill flies,  mosquitoes, etc., but use a  mothproofing product to prevent moth damage.  8. Mothproofing means to  treat the fabric so that moth-  wrorms cannot eat it. A mothproofing product is the proper  way to attack the moth problem. Washing removes the  treatment but dry cleaning  does not. The mothproofing  product continues to give complete protection to clothes,  woolens, carpets,- etc. for at  least a whole year.

Program for  Social Welfare  and Health  It must  cover all  citizens, regardless of whether  they are able to contribute or not. .  The benefits must be high enough to provide for  modern standards of living.  The  social welfare mnist  be financed out of general revenue.  E.  F.  G.  H.  The C.G.F. will roll back the hospital insurance  premiums to the former rate of $21.00 single and  $33.00 for a family per annum.  The hospital Act will be amended to provide for  free coverage of low income groups, the abolition  of co-insurance, the supplying of adequate care  for chronic cases and increased" benefits for remote  areas of the province.  A C.C.F. government will gradually extend the  hospital insurance plan Into a socialized health  plan.  Pensions will be established for the unemploy-  ables, together with suitable* training and rehabilitation schemes for the handicapped.  Special housing projects will be built and rents  subsidized for aged and handicapped persons.  No plan of social security can or will endure  unless we progress from the system of  private ownership to that of public ownership, which alone can ensure the full employment and abundant production on which  / v  all social welfare is based.  we for hih warn  VOTE  CCF.
