Serving the Sunny Sechelt Peninsula  ncor  Flyweight Tackle  3O-P0Ufij  Incorporation of Sedhelt as a milage was the major topic  sof- discussion at *.. well-attended'meeting of the Sechelt Board  >of Trade last Wednesday ^evening.

Several guests, were present ~~  and  Kinsmen Welcome  Vancouver Visitors  ��� Evidently is was ;a ^w'ild  night ?��o.r local Kinsmen as  well as for the visiting Van-  couverjtfces.  Last Thursday the local boys  entertained the visitors frojn  Vancouver at dinner in. the  Mariner, and later in the club-  room.  The   Vaaicouverites   arrived  here aboard the cruiser f Dei-  a  goodwill   visit   to  dub. They were Bill  J:ack   Sparks,   Cliff  ���> ���>  dre''   On  the local  Rddgers,  Denman, Bob  Young,  Murray  McCuish, Frank Baker, "W Ten  Williams, John Reed, and Alan  "Dixon.  Frank' Baker, of Vancouver  thanked the local .boys for the  fine job they had done on the  polio drive, and tendered a  special invitation to them to  attend  the Kin convention  in  If rom  GibsOns, Vancouver  'Victoria. . '  J    Queried  on ?the 'advisability  ���Of   incorporation,    Mr.   Brace-  ; well   made . the   non-comiriital  ; (Statement that ?he,  personally,  , :f dlt the matter -was premature  '   if the  area  was not  going ";to  grow, but if it was going -.to  , grow, then, it may not? be too  premature��� '.mil he felt that  the .area, would   likely?   grow.  And, he. said, in other case'*  v w'here he had felt incorpora-  f tion -was premature, the taxpayers had gone ahead on the  ^'matter and were 'making =a,  ?^succe��s.

Villages which are trying to  get by on a 10 mill tax ratei  cannot be progressive, he said.  According  to   his   figures thei  ayerage mill rate wa_ abojut 15  mill!?!   with    several   assessing  for the maximum of 20 mills.  ,; He    oatlined,    briefly,    the  functions   of  the  three  types  of municipal government in  the province���village, district,  and city. (There are no town's  in B.C.) The position of villages has improved tremendously in the past few years,,  he remarked, but a village can  borrow money only for water  and sewage.  Queried on the Indian Re-  serve lands which separatels;  Selma Bark from Sechelt, he  said that the Indian reseryer  could be incorporated within  the village, but the * village  would have no jurisdiction  over the Indians. It would,  however, hatve jurisdiction  over non-Indians who leased  ;property on  the Reserve.  ?M?r. J. H. Doughty-Davies,  community planning expert,  outlined to the meetingythe  services which his department  could offer if asked. For instance, he said, carefully pre-  Most, people would be- satisfied to catch a 30;pouncl salmon; but leave it to John Cameron, first aid attendant for the  Howe Sound Pulp company,  to add several new twists, to  the accomplishment, lie wasn 't  out in a boat in a secret cove;  he caught his 30-paimcler off  the company float. And ha  used a 6 ounce fly rod. But,  to top it all, he was usin? a  .011 fly leader.        "   .  Can. Ripley top that one?  He hooked his ?;- sea-going  monster at 5:10 a.m. and landed it with a net at '6:30 p.m.  Needless to say thait when  interviewed by our reporter up  that way, Mr. Cameron was  still walking in clouds with  a wild glint in Ms eyes.  Poorly attended, but busy, the Gibsons and District board  of trade dealt with gct-oui-the-vote campaigns, fish derby, the  olcl-tiroe dance, business closing hours, the need for a vetinarVj,,  tourist publicity, jiarking spaiee, and heard Kinsmen President  Tom Larson laud the facilities at the Kinsmen Memorial Park,    Chief   subject   of   discussion.  Red Cross Goes  Over the Top  The Red Cross canvass was  more than one: hundred percent, over its quota.  The West How.e Sound  Branch, which includes Gibsons and Port Mellon, raised  over $900 this year. Credit  goes to the many Avomen canvassers who gave of their time  and effort to make this drive;  a. succes,?.. All were greatly  encouraged by the generosity  of the  people.

High School to Publish  Coast News Next Week  Editor Betty Brown and her editorial staff will publish  the Coast News next week. The staff for the week are members of Junior-Senior High School. Madeira Park Superior  School has been invited to assist with "news from the Pender  Harbour area.  Mies Brown and her staff will handle all news reports,  will assist with advertising, and newspaper  make-up.  Local columns will. be. written during the week by the  students. Regular correspondents will be able to take a holiday while the teen-agers take over.  1 Look for the Special High School number next wieek.  pared data shows the need for    "village bounds.  100 sq. feet of playground for  each child within a qual'ter-  mile radius, and census figures will give the number of  children in that area. No child  should be made to walk over a  quarter mile to a! playground,  he said.  Town , planning he remarked, was geneildly misunderstood by^ the public. It did  not ,have to do with frills and  unnecessary expense, but dealt,  rather, with absolute necessities .for the well-being of the  community ��� such as width  of roads; pla.yground size, and  location of industry within the.  During the hour-long question period which followed the  two talks, Mr. Bracewell had  a barrage of questions (shot at  him, dealing with all questions  from tax assessments, Indian  reserves, to road upkeep.  Ken Whitaker thanked the  speakers for the enlightening  tailks they had given, and  mentioned that Mr. Bracewell  had answered a good many  questions that had been aisked  time and time again since incorporation was first mooted  about ten years a-go. Ernie  Pearson was meeting chairman.

(L-Clt  ilonais  May 24 is no cinch  More than considerable Avork has already gone into the big  May 24 events in Sechelt and Gibsons. Plans, alone, have, taken  hours to check; Avorkers have had to be lined up for the various  jobs that have to be done. And, the big ta'sk of the day itself,  is going to add more headaches. Those Avho are working on the  preparations are not paid for the job, nor are they experts in  that kind of job. Most of them do a better job behind a counter, or at a desk.  They are putting in the extra time, for you and me. Let's  not let them doAvn because of.our apathy. If we can put a good  sIioav over this year, probably next year Ave can do a job that'  will attract ninety percent of the Vancouverites to come along  and Arisit u,s. %  Canada -IIS Strength  Deters Stalinites  To protect free enterprise  system which is the foundation  of North America's industrial  strength and to build and  maintain a strong and flexible  industrial machine, are the  twin responsibilities of Canadian and American businessmen, J. J. Hopkins, leading  international industrialist, told  the Canadian Manufacturers  Association, meeting recently.  Mr. Hopkins, Avho is chairman and president of General  Dynamics Corporation in NeAAr  York a'nd its Montreal subsidiary, Canadian Ltd., Avarned  his listeners that the principal  factor that deters Stalin from  ordering his legions into action  is fear of the joint industrial  strength of Canada and thei  United States.  Emphasizing  that  what" the  tAvo   countries  can  do   jointly  is   greater   than   any   poAver  ' Communism can command, Mr.  Hopkins praised the  tremendous progress Canada has made  industry  in  the   last   decade.  He describe too Iioav Qanadaiiy  located here, is a! good example  of Iioav  defence  contracts,  placed Avith  one firm  can  be  spread out to provide valuable  business  opportunities and increased   employment  in   many  parts of the country. He added  that more than, 120 Canadian  plants,  many in  smaller  com-.  imnnities,  Avill be  aiding   Can-  tfdair, in addition to more than  one thousand  suppliers.  ''Our   industrial   machine,"  lie .etnfmasized, "must be kept '-  strong, sound and flexible and  must  be  able  to   provide,  for  DRINK  many years hence, Avcapons of  war in number and variety  that will give any aggressor  pause."  "At, the  same time,"  he said  "it must be able to supply thei  day-by-day needs for our civilian economy at a rate that will  enable us to control inflation."  Speaking    on    the    responsibility  of. business  to protect  the free enterprise system, Mr.  Hopkins   declared   that   businessmen must  be  as  alert   to  detect and oppose a moA^e towards   socialistic   interference  and straight-jacketing by state  control ate to detect a flaiAv in  their manufacturing processes.  Our   industrial   strength   is  inseparable  from our free enterprise  system," he said emphatically,    "and    an    attack  upon   one   is   an   attack   upon  the other."  Mr. Hopkins described the.  recent steel industry Lseizure in  the United States as interference Avith rights of share OAvn-  ers, labor and management  and warned' that it could well  set a precedent that Avould not  be Avithout repercussions In  Canada. He said the unwary  public must understand there  is the iron hand of totalitarianism inside the velvet gloA^e  of a planned economy planned  by  dictation.  <#  ($m  'R*3��- Mfl'Rrt 'RIE.C  Economical  refreshment  FOR THE VERY  FINEST  HARDWARE  CHINA and DRYGOODS  GROCERIES ��� DRUGS  FISHING SUPPLIES  I   HOME ESSENTIALS  MURDOCH'S  MARINE SUPPLY  Pender Harbour, B.C.  iCf  s Going  The old "forty-acre" farm  kitchen is going modern.

Thursday May   22  1952  The Coast News 3  g Business Has  M.oriy Touch  One of the problems of a  modern industrial society is  that technological improvements often bring Avith them  neAv complications in the field  of human relations.  As industry has groAvn. more  efficient, it has acquired in the  process a reputation for being  .cold and impersonal. In some  cases the ,, reputation may be  deserved; in others, however,  it just doesn't apply. A survey  made by a Chicago publication  .���shows hoAv a number of companies are demonstrating, for  example, that they have not  lost the knack of being a good  neighbor. Here are a few examples:-  Farmers in the area around  Fairbury, Illinois, are invited  to visit Honeggers & Company,  feed mill operators, for information on the latest developments in good farming. The  company makes its agricultur- ��  al research available to all its  neighbors.  For years the .Caterpillar  Tractor Company has been  -placing-its earth-moving equipment at the community's disposal for civic purposes, along  with operators to man it. The  company also maintains a  speakers' bur e au, through  which community organiza-  tions-are supplied Avith interesting speakers on a variety of -  subjects for their meetings.  ~A Chicago   hospital   discovered that study groups, especially women in outlying neigh- /  borhoods, \vould be interested  .  * in seeing a program  about :a?;?-?  hospital. So it decided to make  an inexpensive   slide   film   on  the. subject, and the film has  been An  steady  demand  ever~;"\  since.  Closer to home, the brewing  firm of John Labatt  Ltd., in  London,; Ontario,    has    long '.?  made' sure   that  none  of   its  . trucks! passes a motorist in  trouble on the open highway.  Whether it's a^ flat tire-or an '���..  empty gas' tank, the Labatt's  driver looks after it and helps  get.the motorist back on the  road again.  These are just few of the  ways in Avhich a growing number of companies are proving  that modern industry, in addition to being an economic  iasset to the community in  which it is located, can, be a  good citizen and a good neighbor as Avell.  Those Far Away  Places ��� ��� ���  The genial man seated a't the  tablie next to ours at a Boston  restaurant thanked the waiter  for his courteous service, and  added that he Avouldn't be in  again for somie time.  "You aren't a Bost'onian,  sir?"  "No; I live in Bangkok,  Siam."  "Indeed, sir?" said the Avait-  er, suitable impressed, then  continu'ed. with some satisfaction, "We got a lot of out-of-  town customers, some from  quite a distance." He dropped  his vvoice confidentially."You  sefe that mam over there, sir?  He is from Wheeling, West  Virginia." ���- Readers' Digest.

Anything   can   happen   under   a   "Yes"   majority.  Granted, the present liquor distribution system  is not satisfactory but before a change is made,  the very best method of distribution should  be arrived at for British Columbia.

B. CLARK  Do we need our VON nurse?  We felt that due to the fa'ct  that we have no hospital facilities available, she is essential.  Just the past week she was  called to a materility ca.se, that  was not scheduled for home.  It so happened that she wa;s  called during the day, but, she  would have arrived just a's fast  and cheerfully had it been  during the night. Can you imagine the relief felt by the  doctor, patient and surrounding relatives. She will have  called every day to bath the  mother and baby, and check  weight and general progress.  Then she will ��all once a week  to weigh the baby and give any  advice and assistance needed.  And this is just one part of  her daily duties with which  we hope to acquaint you with  through this paper.  We    say,    "Bravo,    Miss  Baker!"

The Thespians in this group  are all teen-agers from Sechelt  and the surrounding communities, and they promise you a  very enjoyable evening?  The plays are well chosen  and have plenty of variety  and the range from Mystery  to Farce, with the last play  bringing in a strong climax of  Drama. The last play requires  some old fashioned furniture  of the period of the year between 1895 and 1900, and Mrs.  Critchell would be glad of  anyone has anything in this  line to offer. If so, please  phone Wilson Creek 13-R and  notify her. The Legion and  Mrs. Critchell well be very  grateful.

It is  certainly too bad, for the  young 'and old get so much  fenjoyment out of ball games  of any kind. But, without concerted effort of young and old^  we will never reach that goal.  It would be a mighty nice  undertaking  though.  Thought this quip of a' Missionary very apt: When he  was a boy, he would awake  with the little prayer, "Good  morning, God." ?Now grown  to manhood, and a' few. more  years added, he awakes with  the thought, " "Good God!  ��� Morning."

Sechelt  By ARIES  B.,   M.    Maclntyre    (Batt),  [Liberal    candidate    for    MacKenzie    riding,    addressed   a  large   meeting   in  the   Legion  Hall   in   Sechelt,   May  3.   Although   he   had   served   as a.  straight    Coalitionist    in    the  larst  legislative   assembly   and  with     a     conservative     background, he had now chosen to  carr3r   the   standard   for   the  Liberals. As  he  explained,  he  had    given    the    issue    much  thought and had come to the  conclusion  that   the   Conservative   party   is   over-cautious,  and  being a firm believer in  free enterprise, no other course  was   feasible,   with   the   huge  development  in* the   offing of  the province. He gave  a  very  comprehensive   report   of   his  work for the riding in the last  t?hree   years,   which   included  additional    grants   for   public  works, award of a contract to  build a road from Gibsons to  Port Mellon at a cost of $206,-  000,   institution   of the   Ferry  System   connecting the Peninsula and Vancouver by which  '    people can now drive through  by   car,   also  ai road   cut-off  through the Halfmoon Bay ���  Pender  Harbour  route,  which  will result in the B.C. Power  Commission    supplying    this  area  with   the  much   needed  power this year, obtained the  ���   first paving appropriation that'  this riding has had.  Captain Andrew Johnston,-  president of the local association, was chairman for the  meeting and Mrs. Geo Kynoch  was at the piano and a humorous note was. struck when two  versions of "O Canada!" were  sung. So many Legionaries  there that, the ISuchan version  won out as evidently they can  sing the loudest. Refreshments  ' were served by ladies of the  local association and "Batt"  and" hii> campaign manager,  Mr. H. Davis of Powell River,  met old friends and made  many new ones.  We are afraid that the  swamp behind the Village  Centre is becoming very much  a fire hazard. Had quite a!  conflagration tliere recently,  which the prompt work on  behalf of the local volunteer  fire brigade soon put out.  However, something should be  done to make a fire break  there. We notice lots of broken  glass lying in the sun amongst  all the dried sa'ge brush. This  soon ignites, and with a high  wind it would certainly, travel  ��� the fire that is.  Glad to see some old friends  from  Gibsons, Capt. a nd Mrs.  Metcalfe and their niece, Miss,  . Walton, visiting Mr. and Mrs.  Ted Osborne.,  Wally Malikoff -has taken  over the Home Oil agency from  Louis Hansen. He tells us he  will; also keep on his radio*  shop. Don't see how he can do  so much work, but we wish  him lots of luck in his new  venture. He is a, very energetic  young man, a young veteran  and deserves all the breaks he  can get.  , The Canadian. Legion flower  show is in June, don't forget!  Have lots of blooms. All may  not be in the prize winning  class?, but whatever is donated  is welcome, and it's all for a  good c-a,use.

Carlson, R.  Arnold, C. Beacon, and C.  Wood, trustees. The credit  committee consists of A. Lock-  wood, J. Swan, and J. Muir-  head. Now, with the growing  business, the committee has  been enlarged to include A.  Osman, D. Francis and K.  Gallier.  Supervisory ebmmitte consists of T. Slark, A. King, and  Bill Walker,, and A. J. Cameron, is credit union treasurer.  The organization has done a  fine job in helpmg^newcomers  in the .community to find the  spare cash to settle in the find  new homes built by the company. With this record of  good-will, 'and with the help  fpom the pulp company, there  is every indication that the  credit union will continue to  grow with Port Iffellon.

The Halfmoon Bay VON  held its regular monthly meeting May 6, at the, home of  Mrs. Burrows with president,  Mrs. Meuse, in the chair.  After reading of the min-  utep by Mrs. Mayson and treasurers report by Mrs. Petersen,  Mrs. Meuse read a copy of the  resolution from the regional  meeting of the VON, held  April 30 in Roberts Creek,  proposing discontinuing VON  services. This was hotly contested and after a spirited  discussion a resolution was  drafted to bie presented to a  special meeting called for May  28 at the Legion Elall, Sechelt.  The resolution in part, asks  that the VON continue operating for at least six months.  It must be kept in mind that  the VON is not a money making concern and was never  intended to be. It is am, irreplaceable service in a rural  area, like the Peninjsula, espe-  , eially to elderly people and  expectant or new mothers.  Halfmoon Bay VON sincerely hopes that some manner of  administration be reached that-  will   allow the VON to   continue.  Mrs. Baerd, Mrs. Nutio and  Mrs. Mayson of Middle Point  have almost finished the handmade rug, the first prize in  the raffle. It will be on' display soon at the Trading Post,  and drawn, for on June 14.  Other prizes are a ha.by set,  pillow cases, and a surprise'1  Box. Tickets are on sale' at  3 for 25c.  The meeting adjourned, and  refreshments were served, by  hostesses Mrs. Miller and Mrs.  Nutio. The next meeting is on  June: 3, at the- home of Mm.  Meikle. Hostesses will be Mrs.  'Ro"ber'ts6?n and Mrs. Raven.  P-TA  The Halfmoon Bay P-TA  held its monthly meeting the  afternoon of May 7, with /president, Mrs; It. Raven, in the!  chair.  Seeretary-trea'surer, Mrs. 0.  Smith read the minutes and  the treasurers report, noting  they had a balance of nearly  $50. Credit for this goes to the  very successful tea held at the  home of Mrs. Burrows in April  9, with co-convenor Mrs.' R.  Laird, and the well attended  card party a't Redroofs on  April 26.  Plans are underway to transport sehool children, preschoolers, parents and friends ���  to May Day celebrations at  Madeira Park school. Notices  Will be displayed at the stores;  Halfmoon Bay children will  hold an, open house nearer the  end  of the term.  Mrs. Burrows agreed to  supervise the- painting of the  clipboards . installed in the  \school by the P-TA. Teacher  Mrs. Hanney and the children  are busily painting school  chairs and tables in varied  colors.  Mrs. Hanney spent a'n interesting few minutes explaining  her "flannel board," a sheet  cf plywood-.covered..with flan-  nellette. Small pictures are cutout of magazines ��� everyday  things like shoes, fruit, house;?,  animah, .etc ��� these have a  strip of flannel pasted to the  back, causing them to adhere  to the flannel board.

EATON C��  UMITEO Community Hall ���  Fetes Birthday     Fender. Talent High!  aws Good Crowd  The Coast News      Thursday May   22  1952  By MADGE NEWMAN  Many happy returns of the  day to   Roberts   Creek   Community Hall,  18 years  old  on  May 24.  There it stands, just off the  Highway on the Po.st Office  Road, rugged and solid on it's  new underpinnings ��� enduring evidence of faith, hope,  unselfish efforts and cooperation.  As far back as 1931 efforts  were made to raise money by  donation and other means to  build a hall to satisfy the needs  ,of the community, sparsely  settled as it was, and almost  totally lacking in monetary  assets. Dances and parties  were held in the two schools.  Admission was small, music  free, and sumptuous suppers  supplied by the ladies.  Land for the hall was donated by the late John Roberts,  and the Farmers' Institute  became a board of trustees  for the building.  In 1932 the little community  became a hive of industry for  not a man refused to help in  one   way   or  another.   Several  residents of Wilson Creek also  joined   the   project  -and  with  an initial donation of $100 and  voluntary labor,  the sills and  first floor were realized.  This  exhausted the funds and work  was    suspended    for    another  year   when   further  reinforcements   enabled    the   work   to  continue.  On May 24, 1924, the building completed, the hall was  officially openied and well-  wishers from all the surrounding countryside filled it to  overflowing, dancing until the  horning hours. $140 was taken  in that day.  Admission in those early  clays was 25e for men and cake  or sandwiches for the ladies,  ajid the tables groaned with  goodies. Music cost a dollar  an hour.  The hall prospered and it  was not long before a. kitchen  was added, also erected by  voluntary lahor.  In 1944 the hall board, with  substantial help from the local  Players' Club, built on a good  sized stage which was used for  the fir.st time on May 27, 1944.  In February 1950 the Elphinstone Bay -Farmers' Institute  having ceasied to function, the  hall board incorporated, with  Mrs. R. Hughes as that body's  first president.  There will be a dance at the  hall this 24th of May, too, but  the. admission won't be 25c,  and the music will cost probably more than a hundred  dollars, and you will buy your  refreshments extra, and they  won't consist of gob,s of-  whipped cream icing and  cakes oozing real butter.  Yea verily, times have  changed but the people haven't and the hall board works  jiAst as purposefully and patiently as ever, still striving  for a hall of which we may be  justly proud, in which we ca'n  hold all our big affairs, such  as dances, concerts, etc.  Their main project for this  year is" restrooms. Improvements, must come slowly as  the cost of maintenance is  high. If we. all give our dollars,  whether we dance or not, it  will speed up the work of  making the hall more tenable.  After all it is the hall that is  most used to raise money for  any other- project so why-  should it not. be useful for  itself.  A dollar for a birthday present isn't too much and now  that the hall is 18," it certainly  could use th�� money.

Irish trio;  i*  WILL BE USED  IN THE COMING  SYSTEM IS BEING USED  The Voting system has been changed  to enable every voter to cast his- ballot  for more than one candidate in order of  his preference.  When you vote under the Alternative Vote  system YOU GET MORE THAN ONE  CHOICE. This will prevent any candidate  being elected 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.  IV  l\1  IT'S FAIR!  /:  3  I  t\*  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.  IT'S EASY!  ">��  Further messages will appear in your daily and weekly newspapers explaining  the  Alternative Vote.
