Serving the Sunny Sechelt Peninsula  ectrical Consumption  ncreace  dG  rea  .9"  ?Eleetric power consumption oin the Sechelt Peninsula has  jumpikl from 292,859"kilowatt 'hourfc in 1947 to a new high of  1,744,000 kwh. this year, according to the aainual reporJ>p5f the  B.C.Power Commission.  When the B.C. Power...Commission took oyer the plant at  Selma Park, them were 337 customers on the Seehiejlt Peninsula.  There are, now 13?12 users, 1155 of whom come intqf the category  of residential customers, and 139 of whom arte commercial users.  Revenue, gained by the Power ��� ~ ~*  Commission jumped from $23,  584 in- 1947 to $77,289 in 1952.  At the same time, revenue per  kilowatt dropped from 8.1 cents  in 1947 to.4,4 cents in 1952.  The annual report booklet  show�� several views' of the new  Clowhom Palls power development which serves the Sechelt  Pepiihsula. The initial stage^of  this development, which is  located up Salmon Arm twenty  miles from Sechelt by water,  consist* of two hydro-electric  units each of 1500 kw. capacity.  Since the opening of the new  Ckxwhom plant, it is expected  electric consumption will" increase rapidly while at the same  time the price to the consumers,  per kilowatt, will drop.      >���  Tlifc fact that we, .have a  hydro plant serving the area  instead of a diesel plant, with  its high cost o�� operation, will  ;havel no effiect on the cost of  power, but the amount of power  used by the consumers will  lower the unit cost of the  service;.  Respirator Crew  Speeds To Work  When Pamela Jackiipn ojj  Wilson Creek needed the help  of the, Sechelt respirator crew,  they were on the job three  minutes after a telephone call  was put in.  Pamela, daughter of Mr. and  Mrs. M. Jackson was choking  when Mrs. Jackson desperately  called the telephone operator  last Monday for assistance.  Thfe; operator contacted Harry  Billinglrjy and in no time flat  they were in Wilson Creek.  The little girl Was revived  by artificial respiration biefore  the firemen reached the house,  but the folks around Wilson  Crejsfc are breathing much,  much easier now they 've heard  the story.: They know the  Sechelt Fire Brigade can be  relied upon to do thedr job  Names Commitees  A recent meeting of the  officers of the Gibsons Board  of Trade named members of  this, committees as well as five  members to the executive council. Those n aml,e d to the  executive were Cliff Gray, Reg  Godfrey, Harry Reichelt, Stan  Allibone, and Brie?Cooper.

Therefore, September 2 must  be counted a school day.  Last week, the School Board  informed us that schools did  not re^opiem until September  3. Since that timte; Secretary  Mrs. Anne Burns has been  checking, and she now finds  that the young fry will return  tp sehool for a few hours on  September 2.  Alter a shutdown that has  lasted sinciei mid-June, the  loggers have returned to work  in this district. Busses and  taxis have beeii busy in the  Sechjeilt section of the Peninsula  with the men hurrying back  to their jobs; stores have been  burner than usual. with big  shopping orderi:) coming in.  Among the camps that are,"  opening immediately are ���  Continental Logging Company,  Osfoojrne's, Lamb's; Universal  at Gibsons, Misery Creek, M  and M, and Cruell's.  McMillan and Blo>edel have  five large cats working on their  operation, a sign-that new roads  are going into new timber,  areas. ��� .-:���.; "~  The woods closed in mid-  june . owing to.. the logging  strike. No sooner was the strike  settled than the long, dry spell  made work in the woods dangerous because of the fir e  hazard.  '  Farewell Party  For VON Nurse  ...

No appropriations of any kind have been  made or are planned for this  work.  Responsible officials  of  oi#-r  Thw link will start at Powell  River and proceed to Thunder  Bay,)Jukst north of Stillwater.  Five miles  of roa'd remain to  be  built to a proposed  ferry  site at Saltrey Bay. The auto  flurry  will   cross: Jervis  Inlet  from Agamemnon Bay.  From    Agamemnon     Bay    to  KLeindalev there  isi no , public  road.  Nine miles of new construction will have to be located  and built to connect the present  highway just south of Pender  Harbour.   This  road   will   run  between Ruby  Lake and Kil-  larnely Lake, giving access at  the   same   time   to   beautiful  Saginaw Lake. There lake,; are  scenic  spo^s,   abounding   with  fish. As a matter of .fact, the  gamie department has declared  ffilat theste lakes) wfjjl  never  need restocking.  Substantial      forest'growing  areas will be opemed up.  The total length will be 101  miles with travel time5 by auto,  including synchronized ferry  crossings, o}�� four and a half  hours.  What* about the cost? Ome��  million dollars, saysi the department of public works, will  be spent as follows: for reha'-  bittitiating the Gibsons-Sechel1  road, $45,000; reconditioning  Sie'chelt to Halfmoon Bay,  $140,000; reconditioning Halfmoon to Kleindale, $200,000;  building the nine mile stretch  from    Pender    Harbour    'to  wara \jreen coming  To Present Scholarship  Betty Pratt, succ^fesful applicant for the scholarship awarded  by the Canadian Legion' Branch 109, will receive her cheque  from the hands of Howard Green, MP, according toword received  here this week. The presentation will be made:.on Sunday, Sep-  teinbfer 7 at 2:45 p.m. with Mr. Green coming up to Gibsons to  make the presentation.  The public is given a hearty  ivilation to attend the function) at the Legion Hall. Mr.  Green, the veteran's champion,  will give; a word picture of the  happenings at the lamentable  sittings of the parliamentary  committee on veteran's affairs  last Spring.  Miss Pratt, who will recehre  the scholarship, has decided to  make teaching her profession.  A word of praise is due the  Canadian Legion which, together with the assistance of  the Junior Auxiliary, has made  possible for the two students,  Miss Pratt, and Eric Blomgren,  who ifi| attending 'university  through a bursary obtained by  the Legion, to' carry on their  higher education.  Dennis Ty��;on, Gregg Anderson, Len Pilling and Danny  Strom, four members of 'the  Auxiliary, assisted greatly in  helping to make nlhisf year's  scholarship project possible.  Seven Teachers  Appointed Here  Seven    new    teachers    have  ^jeiimidrtihe staffjsvof ;;thev^school  district   and  wilJ!   be   here  to  welcome    the    students   when  they return to their seats September 2.

J. Morrison of the  RCMP has notified the Coast  News that a tank of oxygen,  lost off the back of a Gibsons  Cartage truck in the Gibsons  area, can be dangerous. While  oxygen is not an explosive,  it has been pointed out that  if the top is loosened or  hammered, it may "explode"  because of the great pressure  behind it.  Should anyone know the  whereabouts of this lost tank,  please get in immediate touch  with ConsJ.'-Morrison.  deny thait a promise was ever  made at any time to complete  the project by any sejt date.  The bustle of activity just  prior to the election in which  the promise of a survey and  siome clearing was ma'de*, is a  iiemponary expedient. Ne appropriation was made fo^r it.  N.oi further work is planned  now or was planned at the time.  This project is of vital concern to all citizens of Powell  River and the- Sechelt Peninsula,  The government is pledged  to build the ro^id, but at no  particular [time. It could, be  next year, or 19 0. If the  present attitude of the public  works department continues, I  can, predict no road in 1953.  As far as-I know I am the  only politician to predict that  a certain road will not be built  Yet, I pledge my suppo/rt to  thitf project. I would recommend a common' steaase approach  to the matter and offer this*  plan as a solution :  Ask thfe Black Ba'U Lines  Limited, under government  supervision, to build the Klein-  da.le-Agamemnoh   Bay   access  Agememnon Bay, $240,000; rcfad. Repay the costs within  building the fivgi mile stretch  frrrn Thunder Bay to Saltrey  Bay, $175,000.* Reconditioning  the. Powell River to Stillwater  road would complete the project'. Wtec would then have a  gravel highwiay just under 100  miles in length.  The Kleindale to Agamemnon  Bay n<pur has not yet, heten  located  but  probably  will  be.  5  years and declare it a public  road. This would get the road  built this year and at no immediate cost to the government.  Thin the Black Ball Lines have  agreed to do.  A logging company has  offered'to build the o'ther five  mile?! streteh to' the north side  (Continued on page 8)  .See Agamemnon Bay Road-  school; Mrs. Gladys MeMillen  to Irvines Landing Elementary  school; Miss Zeata Lobb to  Da-visfon 5 of Madieiira Park  Superior school; Mrs. Margaret  Slater to Divilidon 2, Sechelt  Elementary; and James Clark  to Elphinstone Jr.-Sr. High  School.  At a recent meeting of the  school board, the members  voted to pay $15 per month for  room and board for nine students from ?Pon Mellon who  will be living in Gibsons during  thei school week.  The board was informed that  Einer Neilson of Bowen Island  had offered to build a radio*  for Bowen Island school. The  sehool board votejd to'pay $125  towards the cost with student*  paying the re.-;i and Mr. Neilson  supplying the cabinet and labor.  Tunnel May Be Built  From Nanaimo  From Nanaimo comes word  that American capital is interested in a tunel for motor  veihicl.es from Nanaimo* to the  mainland. The tunnel would  lower costs for the traveller  and for freight truck-;, according to the news item in the  daily papers.  The shortest rotv.e ajross  the Gulf at" Georgia is fiom  Departure Bay, just north of  Nanaimo, to  We'it Sechelt.

And, as his day, Labor Day,  rolls around, we salute the Canadian laborer who is sharing in  the building of a great new country.  Up, around Kemane and Kitimatt, the workers are creating  the world's greatest m>e|llalurgical operation."Up beyond Kamloops  the men work with giant machinery to lay a new pipeline to the  west coast. In the Koolenays, the workers are building a, giant  new power project, a nielw fertilizer plant, and in the deep bowels  of the earth they explore and extend the rich mines.  And in every hamlet and community the workers are building  new housefci new stores, and their churches.  What a difference, indeed from what cringing labor is doing  in another country where they are forced by brute strength to  produce or die; where their sons are snatched by/ihe army to  serve without a murmur. Fear and force permeate the very  atmosphere.  This, then,.-is our day. And we go ahead as partners, for  advancement in Freedom. ���  Let us be glad!

I feel a certain amount of  repugnance), in having to answer such a letter as your correspondent writes but, when it  reflects on the conduct of the  Engineering Staff engaged on  ojn the Gibsons to Port Mellon  road Project, I have no option.  Xt is a pity that laymen such  as your correspondent apparently is, should rush into  p-rnnt wjith personal opinion*.  as to how such a project should  be conducted, wtoejn judging  by his letter, he is totaiUy  ignorant of the subject he pro-  Sefe^esl to express an opinion  about.  I would indeed be "grateful  if Mr. Jackson would come to*  this office and put me wise as  to how he and two other men  made a profile survey of the  roaid in question in two and  one-half diayis-, also* how he  ^arrived at a cost figure $150,  000 less than the estimated  engineering figures.  It usually takes a full survey  party two to three .months depending on the country traversed, to make a precise  ���Survey, and estimate the costs  of such a project.
