Profesor Day said now has  come the parting of the ways in  political life, the two old line  parties have shown there is no  basic difference between them.  . The real political division in  Canada today is (A) Free enterprise   (B> State socialism.  In view of the change in public  thinking, especially after the last  world war, it should be clear to  all  reasonable   thinking  people  ��� that the solid: support^ of free  enterprize in this province is to  be found in;'the Government of  Social Credit under the leadership   of   Premier   Bennett,   as  ��� against a; socialistic opposition  headed by Mr. A. Webster.  The speaker gave detailed  evidence as to the failure of the  two old line parties to stand by  any principles of free enterprise,  referring specifically to mar-  gene; milk; liquors; of various  kind; as illustrative of their  falling;away from their alleged  prihciples.w  He .cited;-: the ��� ��� actual performance ^oii^he^ Social Credit Gov-^  ornmen||;c|f Alberta^ which from  had won the cionfiderice^of that  province to such ah extent that  after .four successive victories  at the polls, it now holds tlie  largest majority, an overwhelming one at that, in the legislature.

Up to the present, the only recourse of the Driver, when a student misbehaves in such a manner  as to endanger the bus, the driver, the other students or all of these,  has been to stop the bus and put that offending student off.  -. ������: In a recent incident, one girl  was put off the bus for behaviour judged to be injurious in  the manner described.

C^^CtLLi  'onais  Thorns on Roses  Being very enthusiastic residents of this section of the Sunshine  Coast, we found ourselves driving on a tour of admiration around  one of the very pleasant residential areas in Gibsons, recently.  The homes are being well cared for, grounds are being carfully  cultivated and landscaped, boulevards are being raked and tended,  by residents with an admirable sense of civic and personal pride.  We grant the road isn't very good, it's not paved or eyen well  drained, let alone being well graded. There are large piles of stumps  and other debris -still unburned, but it is expected that the authorities will see these things and act accordingly,one day soon;  The area generally, in spite of this drawback, is one to delight  ��, prospective home-owner. It's a truly pleasant section of the  Village. v  We could not but be aware, however, of the fact that some  home-owners in this same residential area whose yards were neat,  whose buildings were nicely cared for, had carefully festooned the  edges of the roadway with oil barrels, coils of cable, parts of  machinery and other large and unhandsome impedimenta. It is  granted that using the edges of the roadway for storage of these  unsightly but necessary pieces of equipment renders the resident's  ���own homesight more attractive, but the practice is anything but  beneficial to the property of the neighboring homes.  It so happens that in this particular area, there, area group of  offenders all at the same corner. It is altogether possible that they  have been in the past accustomed to having a 'back-forty' or a  willow encircled slough in which all this material was stored. Since  .amoving to the village, they have, perhaps, not' become used to the  i.'��ct that the neighbors, too, appreciate the scenery and the prospect  .generally as. they go towards their homes.  ��        Could our" small voice, crying in the wilderness, perhaps, per*  isuade these thoughtless ones to a slight improvement?  Readers Right  GIBSONS  LIBRARY  SERVICE  Editor, The Coast News',  Sir: ���  In answer to a number of inquiries concerning probable date  of opening of library service in  Gibsons, may I say that on Jan.  15th this year we received advice that the Minister of Education had approved a government  grant of two hundred and fifty  dollars, subject to the Village  Commission granting a similar  amount, the government grant  to be used to purchase childrens'  books. The government in addition, to supply a travelling  library, oh loan, of 150 books  for adults, and also to continue  loaning books direct to individuals, that were not available in  .local library.  As   the   Village   Commission  could not see fit to permit part  of its grant to be used for equipment, as is the procedure in"all  other districts, we have had to  open up negotiations again with  the Public Library Commission,  Victoria, and present to them  the latest proposal of the village,  that both the government. and  the village pay part of the equipment and small operating cost  of the library.  The amount involved is not  large, and it seems a pity that  there should be further delay in  this matter of providing library  services. -  We hope to be in a position to  announce at ���an early date,  whether there will-be a library  in Gibsons or not.

As active residents of Selma  Park and, Sechelt about eleven  years ago we always had a great  sense of gratitude and appreciation for St. Mary's Hospital. On  several occasions we had cause  to use its facilities and have  never forgotten the pleasant help  and courtesies offered by the  staff .and Canon Green.  We realize that times have  changed, that access to Vancouver is much faster and easier,  but surely the hospital will still  have a service to offer to that  Coast Line.       '  Enclosed is a small donation  for the Hospital, the. result of  your editorial (attached) and a  memory of the help, kindnesses  and value given to us in times  past. Possibly others will feel  the-same, so that St. Mary's will  not have to close its doors.  With personal regards to old  friends in the district and best  wishes for your paper.

As a service to farmers  everywhere he brings you latest market  reports, data on farming and interviews  with leading agriculturists.  /  Dial 980 Monday through  Saturday at 6:05 a.m.  >*^  i����iaSiiP:  Following the regular business  meeting of the Rate Payers Association, Robert Burns, Clerk of  the Village of Gibsons Landing,  gave a very interesting talk on  Taxation Methods.  Mr. Burns introduced his topic  by,commenting that though Tax-  -ation was a rather dry subject,  it was becoming an incre^ingly  large one, in our economic-life,  and was therefore a very interesting one.  He gave briefly examples to  show how Taxation has increased in the past year. Mac-  Millan and Bloedel, in their  published statement, stated that  while wages and salaries took  15% of the company's gross income in 1952, taxation took thei  staggering sunroof 18%.  Mr. Burns quoted from a  recent article in 'Saturday Night'  which showed that the Automotive Manufacturing Industry  had paid in 1952 six and one  half million dollars more than  their total payment for salaries  and wages.  Taxes are large and important,  and show every sign of growing.  How did all this start? For  centuries, tithes and taxes had  been levied upon primary producers and upon workers for the  support of their rulers, chiefs,  and nobility for their own agran-  dizement and for the support of  their establishments, as well as  for waging war upon their neighbors. This custom- has simply  grown and become systematized.  During very recent years there  has been a. trend towards using  some part of the .money, raised  by taxes for the direct benefit  of those that pay, them.  By what authority, are taxes  levied?  In Canada, through the British  i     North..America Act,, all, powers  - -^fog ��.t&;ptibl��;JweM^igfeally  vested in the Dominion Government. ���      '  By means  of -further acts  of  Parliament, the Federal government delegated' certain tax collecting rights and responsibilities  to the Provinces. These in turn,  by  Provincial  Legislation,   subject to the B.N.A. Act, delegated'  certain of /their powers to smaller units, the cities,  towns and  other municipal areas, improvement   districts   and   school   districts. Locally, we are interested  in   Village    taxation.   All   our.  powers are defined by the Village Municipalities Taxation Act.  Under this  act,  we have the.  power to levy taxes on Land and  Improvements,    and   to   collect  Trades License Fees.  Water rate, power rates and  light costs are not considered to  be taxes, but are direct payments  for services rendered-  What are the steps  taken  to  arrive :at the amount of taxes?  The first step is Assessment of  Property    Values.   The   Assessment Act, along with the Taxation .Act,   states   that   land   and  improvements    be    assessed    at  actual  values.   "This . should  be  the  sum  which   a  willing   purchaser would  pay  to  a willing  seller". In practice,  assessments  run  from   40   to   50%   of  their  actual   value.   Assessments   are  confirmed by the Court of Re-^  vision.   Then   the   Tax   Rate   is  Levied.  These are on  100%   of  land values and  are limited  to  75% of improvement values. In  Gibsons, taxes are levied on 50%  of improvement values.  By the Tax Act limitations,  the mill rate for- general purposes may'not be more than 20  mills.  The Board of Commissioners  then decide how much monev  is reauired to meet the expected  demands of the year, hour much  can be raised, and set the mill  ratQ accordingly.  This, then, is as brief an explanation of Village Taxes as  can well be given.  way to  ort  by Old Timer  It will take kindxy Nature  years to.cover up this great gash,  this gargantuan government gil-  poke. A monument to the folly  of Road Engineers gone berserk.  I ask you citizens of the district  to go and see this colossus of  stupidity and ignorance.  On your way,, note the awful  grade of 22 % at Granthams and  the blind corner at Dougherty  Creek bridge, both bad traffic  hazards.  From then on the ��� road is ai  fair sample of what would havo  been ample for all the needs of  Port Mellon.  But no, we come to vast clearings, enormous cut���banks,  sweeping vistas of lovely curves,  a bridge, with no end; culverts  too short, and a delightful  miasma of unfinished ��� impracti-  bility, all just to get a school bus  from Port Mellon to Gibsons.  Even if Port Mellon had been  a vast metropolis with.no smelV  and some connections with  Alaska on the other side, we  could not have wasted more.  Citizens, awake! You may  never see the-like of this foUy  in your lifetime, so by all means.,  go and see where your money  literally floated down the drain.

"OLD MACDONALD HAD A FARM"  AND STOCKED IT AT THE B OF M  ..   . ��� ���     *  Everyone knows the song about Old MacDonald and how it  goes on and on about the animals he kept on his famous farm,  ducks going- "quack-quack." pigs going "oink~oink,,? and so on.  By the time the song is finished, old MacDonald is well set up  with livestock.  This .particular Mr. MacDonald may never have been a  customer of the Bank'of.Montreal. But thousands of other  farmers regularly use its services, just as old MacDonald  might have done, to help bui]d their farms with first-class  livestock. '  DO-YOU NEED  LIVESTOCK?  If you would like to increase your profits in this way but  lack ifche ready cash right now, maybe a B of M Farm Loan is  the answer. The cost is so small that the minimum profit you  are likely to get on the new stock will considerably outweigh  the low interest charges. And repayment can be arranged in  instalments to match your peak-income periods.

C. Allen's  home, he had on display some  very outstanding daffodils,  grown by Mrs. Len Allen at their  "Lawnwood" place. These superb flowers were the largest  and most fragrant of 'daffs'. The  perianth, a clear yellow, measured five inches across, and the  deep golden yellow trumpet was  a full twp and a half inches long  and two and one quarter inches  across. This grew on a sturdy,  long stem.  As yet, the daffodil is not  named by the supplier of the  bulb.  In addition, Mr, Allen had  samples of the lovely "Selma  Lagerof" Narcissus, whose pure  white perianth measured a full  four and one-half inches, with  a shallow deep-orange cup two  and one half inches across.  Excellent specimens of the  Robin Hood Daffodil were in  perfect development as well.  Mr. Allen's pride in his flowers, and in those of Mrs. Len  Allen, is amply justified, it is  felt.  ss  m  m  m  t��  3Sft  H  It  1  11  $����  P  I  i  *8&  i  I  ��� - Seagram's Crown Royal  Scactrams V.O.
