Brings many nnes  At the close of the session  in Magistrates Court ip Gibsons  on Monday,, M a g is t r ate  Johi son explained that it was  unfortunate that this Court  could not change the By-Law  now in force in. Qibssons, but  was. bound to aet in accordance  with it in reLderiiicr, its decisions and assessing the levies-  He said that until the By-  Law was changed, he expected  that people who were in the  business of t r u e kin .g, for  instance, would be dikely to  receive traffic tickets, in the  very "nature** of their work,  'whenrit necessitated their delaying even a.few minutes for  shipments to load, if they  had found it necessary to stop  in an area where parking was  prohibited.  A very representative cross-  section of Gibsons V e h i c 1 e  Operators were, among those  arraigned before Magistrate  Johnston'. They included a  Truck operator, a farmer, a  Village Commissioner, a ,shop-.  per, a. theatre; ��� operator, and  others from' the neighborhood.  Mr. Parsons, Theatre Operator, p .1 e a d e d 'Guilty' to a  charge of parking- om Marine  Drive/ where, signs prohibited  piarking (By-Law, 95), and was  asi-essed. a fine of .$2.00 ai d  costs- or five days in jail- He  paid the fine-  E- Binglev, employee of the  Black ' Ball ^feie^pleaded  gruilt^.of a. charge of parking  in< an area prohibited, (By-Law  ��� ' 95,) and .was assessed $2.00  m-& coi^ts. Earl asked the Court  why he was unableNto pay the  levy at the time, rather than  having to lose ��: half day from  work. The Court informed him  \that the Municipality of Gibsons Landing, being policed  by the. R.C-MP-, and not a  Municipal Police Force, it had  no. administrative machinery  established to receive such payments, 'and that perforce they  had to be dealt with through  the medium of the Magistrate'^  Court. In that case, the assessing of costs of the cou:^t are  mandatory. ���  Harold Kennedy, charged  with parkin^ in an area where  sign*? pi'ohiibit such .parking,  pleaded that he had stopped ip  a loading zone to load a passenger, a guest, for whom he  had had to enter the store- He  considered that she, being a  lady, had been, persuaded to  leave the fifteen* cent tetore in  time that was a record for  ladies in such stores-  The Magistrate was not impressed. He stated that unless  he were a Taxi-driver and  licensed, he could not consider  the passenger as a load. He  suggested that out-of-town  pewons should possess themselves of copies of the By-Law  for their infornmtion. before  proceeding to park in Gibso; s-  Fine $2.00', costs $3.00.  WHUiam Lissiman, cfharged  with parkiiio- on M'arine Drive,  between/the Cooperative Store  and ln'h home, chose to plead  'Not Guilty', and asked that  the boundary of the road be  defined- He stated that,he had  parked there beleiving himself  to be off the hi_rhw;ay.  Clerk of the Village Commission, R. Burns, ber g called  upon to state whether a. line  running aloi g in front of the  ibsons  At the regular meeting of the Commissioners of the Village-  delegates1 F. Holland, and R.

For most of us- it's a bit late to talk about saving for this  year's holidays. But it's never too soon to plan for those you're  just been hoping for next year.  Miany Bank of Montreal customers have found that the easy  way to save for first-rate yearly vacations is by starting early-:  Before they get the sand out of their shoes this year, they'll b&  saving for next siummer's holiday jaunt i They keep a special  Savings Account for the purpose���their "Swishine Account-"  Good sense? Of course'it is- Most of us have endured"*  "pinch-penny" holiday or two. Every day we'v?e wondered how  much we could afford to do and still have jnst enough mo��_ey  left for the trip home. And we've pronused ourselves "never  again!"  The way to keep that promise is a program of year-romid  saving, putting aside enough for a day or two's holiday every  jnonth. A_id the best way to carry out a program of regaJ&iv  saving is through Personal Planning, th�� Bank of Montreal's  system of money management for the family or individual. Personal Planning has shown many Canadians how to save despite  todays high cost of living, and it can help you, too. Any member  of the staff at the Gibsons or Sechelt B of M will he pleased to  give you literature on Personal Planning and help you .open your  "Sunshine Account."

I glided along the makr street,  . pulled up in front of the nice  white, railing and was confronted with a 'no parking" sign.  A slight frown of ani.oyance  passed   over  my: face   and   I  looked   around  guiltily to  see  whether   I   had   been,  caught.  Then, slipping along a bit  further,  I  tun ed iiii,   and  off  the street, nearly colliding with  smug little "parallel" parking"  only sign. In siheer desperation  I backed the car out aid ran  up to the curb���smack into a  "loading zone."(  By this time I was sweating  profusely  and  had   a  feeling  that the local gendarme's, were  w.atching my desperate efforts  to  f i: d  a .parking ��� place  with  amusiement and were just waiting for me to make a "TJ-turn "  or   something   so   they   could  really   have  1 ots  to . write   om-  their little tickets.,  -;    At last after cruising around  ���for about five miiiutes, a place  to ptfrk' came into view and in';  a  moment^ I Jiatl- slipped into  place,   1 o clre d  the  car,   acid  walked off dowii the street.
