Luckily the weeather  was exactly what would have  been ordered if such things  were possible. A parade starting from the Indian Reserve  led off the events. The parade  ran from the Indiaat Reserve  through Gibsons to the. Kinsmen 's playground. In it were  the decorated floats of various  merchants and organizations,  decorated bikes, and of course,  the centre of attraction, the  Queen's float.  When the panade reached  the playground, a demoristra-  ti'on of "life-saving" was  staged by the volunteer fire  brigade . and their "Queen,"  Jack ?F1tchett. After this,  beautiful, dark Sue Atchison,  the May Queen, followed by  her attendants, was led to her  throne by J. H. Drummond  and W, Skellett. Mr. Drummond, village commissioner,  made the speech, congratulating the Queen, who was then  crowned by the retiring Queen,  (Continued on page 12)  (See Gibsons May Day)  Clowhom Turbines  Boost Power Here  Mile for mile, the 22-mile  transmission line for electric  power from Clowholm falls,  has been the toughest coiir  struction job of its kind yet  carried out by B.C.

The 60,000 volt line zigzags,  back and forth up and down  .16. miles, of steep shoreline of  Salmon Arm, then climbs  through a 2,500 ft. mountain  pass to come to Sechelt.  The construction story has  been interesting. Prom the  steeply-sloping timber-covered  face at the head of Salmon  Arm, the site of the 4,000  hp. generating station has  been carved and the powerhouse and dam, pipeline, penstock, and surge. tank which  feeds its two generating units  built.

A combination of sunshine,  lovely queen and a Avonderful  parade made Seiehelt's May  Day an event to be long remembered.  The parade of colorful floats  representing nearly every firm  or organization in the area,  led by the Royal Canadian  Sea Cadets, Lonsd'ale Division  band and guard travelled from  ihe Indian School ground's,  through the main street lined  ���with dozens of cars and people, to the Elementary School  grounds where the past and  present Queens and attendants  passed through an honor guard  of Cadets and stepped into  the dias, which was beautifully  decorated with cedar boughs  and a' profusion of flowers, as  the- Cadet Band played "The  Qiieen."

We, the students, welcome, this opportunity to express our  views upon the same topic. Concerning Education Today,  although Ave realize that the standard is lower in some respects,  ,we feel we must consider this along with the fact that in the  -present day Education is for everyone, whereas in the past it  was for the select few. Then, too, various tests and lengthy  research comparing our mastery of school subjects to that of  students fifty years ago fail to show that our standaird is the  lower. Locally, many studenti?) feel that the curriculum offered  is too limited, ia situation forcing them to study subjects for  which they have no particular talent, and particular use. In a  smafll school, Avith limited staff such as ours, this seems to be  vshe usual thing. v  The pupils view the New School Avith feeling of pride and  'thankfulness. At least 90 percent of them are grateful to the  School Board and Ratepayers for the opportunity to attend  sehool in such a building. The other 10 percent are in school  because they are forced to be there ��� either by their parents  -���or by the school law, and that 10 percent often get us all a  lot of bad publicity. It seems ai shame ��� to us ��� that some  arrangements cannot be made for this minority group to satisfy  them and a.t the same time free us of the many childish restrictions and school rules which their presence makes necessary.  ANNUAL  y  HARD TIME DANCE  SATURDAY -JUNE 7  SCHOOL  HALL ��� GIBSONS  Refreshments ��� Admission 50c  Sponsored by Gibsons Board of TraJde  Editor, The Coast News,  Sir: ���  Your correspondent, Robert  Burns of Gibsons, "wonders  who might be expected to vote  Conservative." The short answer to this is: everyone dependent upon small business.  Mr. Burns, I am informed,  is employed by Gibsons Municipality and is a CCF adherent; .so.this category does not  include him- However, it does  include a very solid group of  residents in MacKenzie Riding.  Mr. ?Burns further "wonders" hoAV a Conservative candidate can have the ''effrontery" to "ask the public support." Since I am the Conservative candidate here, I  Avould advise Mr. Burns and  his friends that I am a candidate at the request of "small  business" operators and employees Avho knoAV me and  knoAV my record.  Specifically, members of the  Independent  Loggers Association   (a   group    of   ovier "300  small outfits) have approached  me and asked me to help them  tell  their  side   of  the  Forest  Management story in Victoria.  The   Forest. Management  story is a lengthy one which,  for me,  has been building up  over  four years.   I  expect  to  tell  it  and  be  cross-examined  on it   publicly in   Gibsons in  the near future. If Mr. Burns  and his friends care to attend,  I shall be most pleased.  In closing, I would like to  point to the basic weakness of.  Mr. jBurns' position. He obviously relishes history and  delights in the argument,' "history repeats itself.'' HoAvever,  as a political wiseman. (I am  Informed that Mr. Burns is  chock-a-block full of political  wisdom) he should realise the  importance of checking facts  before selecting arguments. .  The facts, as they have been  made clear to me in my-visits'  throughout this Riding and  the Province, .are that everywhere in B.C. today there are  serious-minded young men  who are trying hard, to think  clearly and responsibly about  ftdiat is happening to individuals in the present rush toward the "welfare state."  ?For those men, as for- me,  the Progressive Conservative  party represents a lone remaining hope.  Sincerely,  Lawrence   S.  Eckardt.  An admiralwhen asked why  they called a ship "she," replied, ''Plunging . decklines  amidst the swells.''  >.j-t- Readers' Digest  -   Vote    -  LAWRENCE S.

Arts i  In Jos Selection  ^The subject matter of Industrial Arts Courses consists of  wood work, metal work, electrical work and drafting.  The object of the course is  not the production of tradesmen but to. provide some insight to the mechanical trades  thus providing a basis for later  specialization if desired or at  least broadening * the educational background of the student.  In grades seven "and eight,  Industrial Arts is a compulsory subject for boys. During  this time they should be able  to find out if they have the  necessary  aibility    or    interest  /to  carry   on  with   the work.  , From grade nine on, Industrial  Arts is an elective subject.  .. This year, Industrial Arts  has been of an introductory  nature for all students, but  due to-a lack of equipment and  facilities, we have not been  ahle to give a complete idea  of Industrial Arts Courses.  I Large parts, remain untouched. We have no forge,  no electrical equipment, and  no drawing instruments. How-  lever, we hope. to have these  things added by September. .  In small schools the lack of  equipment a nd instructors  makes specialization difficult,  but in their fourth year, students have -been expected to  specialize in either drafting *  arid metal work, or drafting  arid woodwork. Recently it has  been rumored that school with  general shops sue^li as ours will  be allowed to offer a fourth  year course consisting of  drafting, wood work and metal  Work; This would be ideal for  our fourth year students- as it  would enable them to fill in  tlie gaps, in /their past,^ear's^  IridustrialvArtsr   ��� y-y  ���'��� ' vv-v;--y  Home Economics  Teaches Many Arts  Many women plan to marry  and have a home and family  of their own. A basic knowledge of Home Economics will  help them to reach their goal  of being a. good homemaker.  The ' course ' taken in school  teaches home planning, including labor saving arrangements for kitchens, care of  children, how to plan a nourishing yet appetizing meal and  a basic knowledge of sewing.  Along with this study of cooking and sewing a girl is taught  how to get the best value for  her money.  A career girl Avho has taken  the Home Economics course  knows how to stretch her  budget through the many  money saving steps taught her  in this course. She, like the  girl who chooses homemaking  as her career, has a thorough  knowledge of cooking and  sewing. She has learned Iioav  to shop for and prepare foods,  and has enough training- to  make most of her own wardrobe.  Home Economies as a career  is a very open field for an  ambitious girl. After a girl has  become a trained' Home Economics, she can find a job in  a restaurant, hospital, manufacturing plant or research  laboratory. In any of these  fields she has a good chance  for improvement and success  and a very happy life.  A girl may also choose dressmaking or designing as a  career, and again she.will use  Home  Economics  training.

P-TA, as is generally  understood,, is the abbreviated  form of Parent-Teachers Association. After the meeting was  well on its wa'y, I began wondering, jusst how many members know the meaning of P-  TA. That is a good question,  ladies of the P-TA, to question  yourselves at the forth coming  meeting. To some, it means a  time of relaxation,, where you  are able to smoke and knit,  while at the same time pick  up these vital odds and ends  falling off the grape vine; but  to others, I am certain, P-TA  has its objectives, and' good  ones they are, too.  Nervously chewing' his nails  . in the front-row, sat the lone  male supporter of the entire  membership. Yes, and I wa>  under the.-impression that this  Was a Parent organization;  and aren't fathers in the category of parents? A little interest displayed by 'Pap'a' might  prove valuable!

At a well-attended meeting in Port Mellon on Monday.  Larry S. Eckardt, Progressive-Conservative candidate for MacKenzie riding charged the Hon. Gordon Wismer, attorney-general, with having confused and mMed the Indians of British  Columbia. He stated that the legislation allowing Indians to  enter beer parlors hadn't gone far enough; that Indians could  sit in beer parlors according to the laiw, but that some hotel  owners in this riding were still refusing to let the Indians enter.  :    : Mr. Eckardt maintained that  indecisive legislation from Victoria was proving very embarrassing to the Indian popula-  lation and brought up the*  question of discrimination. He  went on to say that in his  opinion, if the attorney- general saw fit to open the beer  parlors to the Indians, then  there "was no reason'"why the  government liquor stores  should not be open to them  also.  Eckardt ali?.o strongly recommended a public enquiry into  the present forest management  policy as Vaid down by the  Hon. Mr. E. T. Kenney, minister of lands and forests:  He stoted that unless  policy was changed, the  ests of B.C. will be in  hands of a few private  nopolies within six year!?-,  urged the people here to elect  only candidates \ who will  pledge themselves to demand  a shake - up in the forest  branch.  Political  Potpourri  Larry Eckardt, P'rogrei-sive-  Conservative, is now making  thte rounds of the Peninsula  before leeaving next week for.  Ocean Falls. Tomorrow night  he speaks in the Sechelt Inn;  Last niight he spoke at the  home -of Mr. ia/nd Mrs. W. B.  Glen-dinning in Gibsons.  "Batt" Maclntya-e, Liberal  Candidate, will be speaking  in Pen die r a Hall at Madeira  Park next. Friday evening.  During the afternoon, he and  Mrs. Maclntyre, will meet  with the ladies of the Sechelt  district for tea. "Batt" is  now up north, and will fly in  to the  area for the day.

YES   |   X  NO ~[  We believe the answer from the citizenry should he a  resounding "YES!"���we believe our liquor laws in B.C.  are antiquated and poor-^we believe liquor by the glass  should be approved; and these are our reasons:  ���?.w V 0 T E   ���.'���������?'

CLEANERS  Gibsons 100   ���r, Sechelt 45 J  OUlv LIQUOR LAWS NEED  TO BE MODERNIZED:  THEY ENCOURAGE LAW-BREAKING  by forcing the average .citizen who wishes  a glass of wine or a cocktail or highball with  dinner, in a public place, to have them  surreptitiously and in violation of the law.  THEY  TEND  TO CORRUPT  YOUTH,  because they expose young people to the  example of adults winking at or actually  taking part in'violating the law. .  THEY IMPOSE UNFAIRLY UPON  PUBLIC OFFICIALS by requiring them  to administer and enforce unpopular and  unworkable   laws.  THEY ADVERSELY AFFECT TOURIST  TRAVEL by denying visitors the hospitality  offered by other Canadian provinces and  by the neighboring slates of Washington,  Idaho,   and   Montana.  THEY ARE DISCRIMINATORY because  they (a) permit one class of persons���Ihe  members of private clubs���to purchase  wines and liquor by the glass, but forbid  others to do so; (b) similarly, they permit  one very limited type of establishment���  the private club���to sell "wines and liquor  by the glass, but forbid other eating establishments with which t,he clubs compete to do so.  �� The government has stated its intention  "to set up a consultative committee, comprised bf a cross section of. community  life" after the plebiscite, %to study the  problem and make recommendations to  the legislature on changes in the liquor  regulations. JBut that consultative committee needs a "Yes" on the principle  expressed in  the plebiscite, to guide it in  LIQUOR BY THE GLASS  SHOULD    BE    APPROVED:  IT PROMOTES TEMPERANCE by making it unnecessary to buy a whole bottle  in order to have one drink.  IT     REDUCES     LAW-BREAKING     by  eliminating washroom -drinking, reduces  hotel-room drinking, and wipes out the  bottle-under-the-table  evil.  IT MAKES POSSIBLE SERVING  LIQUOR     AND    FOOD    TOGETHER,  conceded by everyone to be one of the most  temperate uses of spirits.  IT REMOVES THE PRINCIPAL  SOURCE OF INCOME FOR THE BOOTLEGGER and other shady characters lathe illegal  traffic in  liquor.  IT RAISES STILL FURTHER THE  STANDARDS OF MEALS AVAILABLE  TO THE PUBLIC, by providing eating  establishments with an additional volume  of business.  FOR ALL OF THE ABOVE REASONS,  IT WILL RESULT IN BETTER COMMUNITIES in which to live and to rear/  families.  working out the details in the public  interest.  We invite every citizen who is interested  in community improvement, to join us  in this effort toward a better, saner system  for the sale of liquor. No obligation.

We will run  our legs off���those who haven't done so already. Crowds  will .come, to watch us ��� we  hope. This day if-< ca'lled Sports  Day.  Yes, the people [thai come  will watch, and perhaps comment, "Gee whiz, did yon* see  that gny over there?" or  "Hey, that's a funny wtay to  throw that ball!" After |a  while someone is bound to say,  "I'm hungry!'' which will be  followed by a "Yea1, so am I,"  from someone else- Then the  crowd will "descend upon the  concession stand and indulge  in a very old practice. People  will gorge themselves (excepting those who possess the willpower to remember their diet)  on? hot-dogs and ^ pop, and  when they reiateh the limit of  their capacity, the proceedings  will recommence- The remaining legs will be run off. More  bruises will be inflicted, more  blisters will be created. Only  then will come the- grand  finale, grand, great and grueling event.  As the pangs bf hunger and  the aching of feet are again,  felt, the crowd, with rosy red  noses- and sunburnt bald heads,  will drag their suf f er|ing  bodies home. Soon after will  follow the participants, aching, sore and bruised.  This is the part of the Track  Meet that % apparent to the  eyes of the onlookers. But behind the scenes a great deal  more is involved. We wonder  if thev,spectatqrs who .visit us  pn<r$!i%i��6 will realize that the  phy^jj^l J education! c 1 a s s e s  helped builil lip their muscles  by weilding: picks, shovels and  wheelbarrows to smooth and  clean the grounds. Will the  people know that the jump  pits had to be dug, filled and  leveled? Will they laugh at  buivsoit ball backstops or will  they say that they are a worth  while effort, and will they  realize that a lot of labor went  into collecting odds and ends  to prop up to stop the ball?  Will people feel. that our  booth ifa rather inefficient or  will they stop and think that'  for a first attempt miaybe  those green girls are learning  a lot, and |even in the programme items themselves, will  the people ,iu!?t see three contestants from each House  step out there like veterans,  or will they stop to ^consider  the training those contestants  have done- the long process of.  elimination to .choose the best  three from the many ?  . There is a lot more to Sports  Day than meets the eye.

The value of forest production in B.C during 1951 was $525 million. The estimated gross revenue  from this source through timber royalties, sales, etc., is  approximately $11 million. Out of this gross revenue the  province will spend appoximately 7 million to protect  the forests. The net revenue to the public treasury  therefore from the $525 million enterprise will be less  than $4 million. "'  The total revenue derived from the provincial mines  tax is estimated at $1,4*00,000 out of which the Mines  Dept, will spend $824,000 leaving a net revenue of  . $576,000. One Company alone, the Consolidated Mining  & Smelting; Cou. wholly owned by the C.P.R. reported  a surplus profit of^ $51,000,000 in '51,  The GCF will change this picture. This will be done in  two ways: 1. Existing industries will be required to  share the vburden of public service more equitably  through provincial taxes.  2. As determined by public needs a CCF Government  will place vitally essential pperations under public  control.  CCF policy in tKls respect will be determined by democratic process.       ��� y-yy-yy        ���:���.*--;"'". ::" ??

By the end of May .this  orchid-like flower will be at  its colorful best, and the size  and rich new-shades will surprise <a,nd delight flower lovers  and color-camera enthusiasts  alike.  /Iris will grow in any well  drained soil, but the love the  sun, standing a dry spell better than most plants. A mixture of turfy loam, compost  and garden soil, giving each  pliant a good handful of bone-  meal, a,nd your Iris is happy,  needing only a top dressing  of compost each spring or fall  to keep it thriving.  The best growers plant them  early, July and August being  the best months, when the new  flower buds can develop in  the new home and they get a  chance to "dig in" before the  winter comes.  The rhizomes need shallow  planting and ^should not be  completely buried. Diseases  are few,0rhizome rot being the  worst, usually caused by wet  conditions, and the main insect  pest', the iris borer, is rarely  troublesome in B.C.  May we suggest that you  see some new Iris in bloom  this month end and choose  your favorite colors. Write  down or remember the names  of those you like.  Among the world's best Iris  that are hardy and thrifty, as  well as beaut'ifulv w^e would  include .the six: "musts" we  gaive a reader^ this; week.  For af light: blue the Canadian bred .'yGreat? Lialies' '��� - is  tops; "Wafesh" is a dream  flower? in w^iite and purple;  "Prairie Sunset'' is perhaps  the finest of the hewer blends;  "Sptin Gold." a very satisfying yellow; ' 'The'.. Red Douglas, '' a) huge wine red; and  "Winter Carnival," a hardy  white. These are all/ /popular  and grown by all the dealers,  and none ia,re over one dollar  -each, some much less.  The Iris family is so large  that the different species are  confusing to the layman, but  the plant we deal with above  has the food-storing rhizome  and the distinctive beard, and  quite often of a contrasting  color. It used to be called the  German Iris, but the parents  of our present garden beauties came mostly from Asia  Minor and the shores of the1  Mediterrean.  PRIMROSES  Right now, directly after  blooming, is the. time to divide  primroses, and it pays to lift  them j carefully and wash off  the soil, so you ��an. -separate  the. crowns without too much  dataage to the roots.  ,^ Your new soil bed should be  ���ready, enriched with compost  and leaf" mould. They like  some shade being real "woodsy" plants, and we include a  good sprinkling of peat moss  to help hold the moisture.  This applies to polyanthus  and the rather tender dentic-  uliata, ais well as the rockery  types, and the old fashioned  primrose.

He marks a first choice  for his candidate, and then proceeds to make a, second, third and possibly further  choices for as many candidates as have been nominated.  On counting the ballots, if the highest candidate has an absolute .majority over and  above the total votes cast for all the other candidates, he is declared elected. If,  however, no candidate obtains an absolute majority oh the first count, a second  count is required. Before doing this, the lowest candidate is excluded and the  second choices on that candidate's ballot are transferred to the other candidates as  indicated on his ballot. If the second count elects no one on an absolute majority,  the next lowest candidate is eliminated .making a third count necessary. This is  continued until some candidate obtains an absolute majority.

Instead of having the May  Queen's coronation about 11.  a.m. followed by a short program and .by chilren's sports  which lasted to nearly 7 p.m.,  the May Day committee, working with the staff of the  Superior school, devii-ed a? pro-  /gralm. which began with the  school sports at 9.30 a.m. and  carried on to the coronation  of the May Queen at 1.30 p.m.  and concluded with ihe adult  sport at from 3 till 6 p.m. The  day was finished with the  usual May Day dance at Pencil era' Hall.  Crowned Queen wai?; Karin  Bergenhamu " Attendants were  Joan Davis, Susan Malcolm,  Dorothy Gregerson and Margaret Reid, while Tommy Burrows was p.age-boy.

At 7 o'clock a dance was  held for the children, begun  with a grand march led by  Mr. Gray, Mr. Pilling, and the  present and retiring queens.  Thfc. dance lasted till 9 o'clock,  when the elders took over and ���  danced to the music of Benny  Stone.  The committee, for ?ihe May  Day was headed by Mr? C.
