Serving the Sunny Sechelt Peninsula  ^m^mmm^ixjmmtmmssaiSBBmi  ueen  ; On Tuesday, March 24th,. in,  her 85th year, the well-loved  Queen passed on.  She was the personification of  innate personal dignity and integrity, whose staunch belief in  the eternal Tightness of personal  and ^public honor governed her  whole existence.  At Tuesday Evening's Session in the Provincial Legislature, the  ^Social Credit met defeat  over the second reading of the School  /Financing Plan as presented by the minister of Education, the Hon.  .: ^rsl'^TiiUe-'-Roistbh.-'-' According to early reports on Wednesday, the  v-Liberal vote, and that of one. Social Credit member r were aligned,  with the Opposition, to upset the delicate balance of the House. ���'  A telegram to the Coast News  ironi Tony tiargravg M.L.A. on  Wednesday,   afternoon,    reports  the general unsettled  condition  of affairs in the.-Capitol, up to  that time,  Both Harold  Winch  and Premier Bennett had been  to call ^on the Lieutenant Governor ^ ���;-.���- - ' . .  Mr. Bennett has said that lie  will ask for a'dissolution and an  election;   Mr.? Bonner   said   his  government ?^puld rise or fall  Jfvith the^.^Roislpn Formula'.

The opposi-,  ition parties have agreed to pass  icertairi  bills   which   "are  of a  priority,  or non-contentious  nature".    These   bills   will   be  passed with little debate and no  amendments; will be permitted:  C   Harold Winch has offeredto  form a gov^rninent, and:;-is confident that the CCF would have  the support of the Liberals.' This  would prevent an election this  summer. Mr.  Kenriey will give  ino advance guarantee.r  Mr. Gargrave expresses hirh-  Preniier A.G. -Bennett  ���:keit% as being opposed to an  election at this time, as there is  ho guarantee that members will  hot be returned to the- HOuse in  exactly the same proportions. He  _uso feels it regyettable ��� that so  ���contentious an issue: as Bill 79  should have been brought up at  this time. . vv  This past week-end, a group  ���of Gibsons and area; men decided  to take a little irip to Port  Mellon. ,  '\:'":.y'\'^0l-:  "   -  Among those ha^dy spirits  venturing over what ".will some  day be a smart piece;of highway  were Jack MarshllliJl-.S. Jackson and Locke "Kn|��)|les.  They were able^tirive from  Gibsons' to wtiatMil^d&scribed as  the 'top Of thfe ^^rispn Logging  Road/ At this p^int^t was necessary to take to their trusty feet  and walk.       "      '   >-  It is possible to walk over this  ��� part of the road, though  some  feet were wet and muddy past  the ankles in soft spots, of which  there are many.  After about thirty-five minutes  of fairly vigorous walking, the  men were met by aSparty from  Port Mellon in cays? The Port  Mellon end of the> road is reported in excellent shs-pe, and the  boys report that ii; )the whole  sroad when completedas like that,  it will be excellent.^  The usual Port Mellon Hospitality was extended to our grateful wanderers^ and after visiting  and viewing and enjoying coffee,  the party of explorers returned  to Gibsons. ' "  According to the party, the  .amount of work represented yet  to be done in thai 'thirty-five  ,minute stretch of hiking, is great.  Much bull-dozing,'^grading and  &; As things' stand," there' has Ijeen  no work performed in'this area  for about two months, and to  these observers, it seemed that  considerable time, even feat full  speed, would be needed I before  the job could be completed.  Port Mellon people expressed  themselves as d-sirous-of seeing  the road completed, in which the  Gibsonites heartily concurred.  eceiveserta  v . '.������(��/  .���:�� ��������  l!

When first ih Woodfibre, Mr.  Engen cleared timberland and  built his own home. Now, on  retirementr he is repeating the  processj; clearing two timbered  lots bought five years ago, and  he again intends to build his own  home.  Both Mr. and Mrs. Engen are  looking forward to a very active  kind   of  'retirement*,   building,  clearing,   gardening   and landscaping.  The monthly Social Credit  (meeting was held on March 20th  in the Anglican Parish Hall. A  good attendance and lively discussion marked the evening.  The meeting was commended  for its resolution that War Veterans? wives whose husbands are  in receipt of ^he War Veterans'  Allowance, be exempt from payment of Hospital Insurance.  The Resolution of the IJowe  Sound Farmers* Institute was  endorsed, but it was decided to  include the needed $2,00000 in  the resolution that the VON in  this area should Teceive greater^  financial support and to forward1  it as from the Social Credit  Group.  Mrs. Cliff Oviatt reported upon  the very satisfactory beginning  made by the Ladies* Auxiliary.  Auction Sale articles, it was  reported, are heeded, though a  number of very useful ones are  on" hand for the sale on March  28th. :  Dr. Anderson inehtioned the  ���advisability of suggesting that  the Government conduct a plebiscite oh the'issue: Should pay-:  ment of Hospital Insurance Premiums be, compulsory or Voluntary? It was decided to let the  matter rest for fear of tying th��  Government hands at this time.  In view of the working of the  plan in Alberta, it was felt that  the Government would -act at  the right moment.

There is a great deal of work, much of it unrecognized and  rairewarded, that must go into these arrangements. It has grown  *o foe too big for just three or four 'willing horses' to handle.  If the present attendance at the past two meetings is an indication of what the May Queen celebrations in Gibsons are to be,  "the committee is of the opinion that the celebrations for this year  may have to be cancelled.  In this matter we feel that the co-operation of which we have  been writing and talking at intervals for the past, weeks should come  into play, to make the results both possible and worthwhile.  If anyone finds himself or herself willing to do a little towards  $his daiy, which has been so well handled in the past, to assist the  committee and take just a small share of the work and responsibility  from them, they have been requested to phone Mr. R. Watts, at 125,  fief ore April fourth. ,  t We hope many of you who have been busy may now step for-  -ward to lend a hand, if if you approve of, and wish to keep alive,  She MayQueen Celebrations in Gibsons.

RESUSCITATOR FUND  Editor, The News,  Sir: ���  May we through the medium  of your newspaper express a few  facts and thoughts.  j^ress and verbal reports have  have come to the attention of  the Fire Department, re the;  IResuscitator Fund, which appear  to east unfavourable allegations  against this Departments integ-  rety. '   '  This fund was started and it's  monetary objective reached by  the Firemen's efforts, to secure  for the community, Life Saving  and First Aid equipment which  was, and is, in great need.  Some debate took place as to  what apparatus to purchase. We  bought the required resuscitation unit and First Aid equip-'  ment as recommended by the  Medical Health Officer of Vancouver, the Provincial Fire  Marshall's Office and' the Underwriter's Society of Canada.  There remained a balance of  imoney in the fund. From this  ���additional Fire equipment was  purchased, because such -tents  as were purchased had not previously been requested in our  estimates to the Village Council.  At present there is a tidy balance on hand in the Fund which  we propose to use at our discretion for further First Aid and  Fire Equipment which will benefit the Community as a whole.  The public is invited to inspect  tthisamd all the equipment.on  any Monday evening at 7:30 p.m.  Secretary  Gibsons Volunteer  Fire Department  from the Roberts Creek area:  First, on the 'Origins and.

We all know that thousands of young men are injured  painfully in our forests every  year. Frequently the accident  occurs miles from a hospital or  doctor.. Much suffering and even  death could be prevented if First  Aid men with special training  could alleviate pain and shock  by administering sedatives and,  where needed: oxygen or blood  plasmav v  Another recommendation of  Chief Justice Sloan was that the  government should raise all  those in adequate pensions  awarded by the Compensation  Board so many years ago. There  are on record workers, who have  lost an arm or leg receiving ; a  pension from the Board as low  :as 15 dollars a month. The pension schedule is'so set up that  two brothers may have exactly  the same injury but receive  totally different pensions. The  difference . may range from . 20  to 90 dollars a month,, according  to the date when thjf" accident  occurred. The Social' Credit government'' has the recommendation of the Chief Justice and the  support of every party on the  floor of the House to remedy  these inequalities. Why does the  Government not bring in these  amendments?  Another much needed amendment to the Workmen^ Compensation Act is protection for our  coast fishermen.

This Plot-of Earth  ��� By SANDY LOAM���  y by S^nd^lMira:''-:r^':-'  This early spring makes all  advice on sowing dates a bit.dif-  : ficult, and the object of "This  Plot" is not to give repititious  advice that every garden book  or newspaper carries. .  But if we can interest a few  gardeners in building up their  soil, and tell a few others the  good news of Organic Gardening, and Of .new discoveries in  the garden world, we shall justify the space our Editor spares us1 ,  Gladiblas and Dahlias should  be ordered'now soon, and medium sized corms of the former  fare a better way for the amateur.  Sweet Peas should be in by now,  while garden peas can be sown  every two weeks if the soil is  not too wet.r    '  Mulching seems quite a help  to most crops, but if you-use sawdust do not dig it in. The experts  say that peas and beans only can  -stand sawdust in the soil, but  the best place for it is on top  of the soil where it can hold  warmth and moisture and be  used as needed by the soil population. TJie. Experimental Station  at' Saanich has shown startling  results from sawdust mulching  of fruit, trees and berry crops.  They even use a chipper to chew  up all fruit tree prunings to provide humus rich'mulch!    '  Early spring flowers catch the  ,eye now, but bulbs for these  must be bought' in the summer.  Make a note now of those you  admire. Even a dozen mixed  chocus in a clump make a brave  show, while grape hyacinths increase almost too rapidly, and  eny neighbor would' start you  with these. Daffodils in their  many varieties make a parade  of surprizes right up to tulip  jtime in May.  Primroses are now giving a  gplast of color, and it is well to  be reminded that directly after  flowering is the best time to  divide them, giving them a year  to grow into fat f 1 o w er i n g  clumps.  come as a surprise to many of  you that our coast fishermen are  not covered by this Act. Each  year we learn of fishermen who  have been lost at sea while going  about their hazardous work.  Wives and children of drowned  fishermen receive no pension as  is the case of other industrial  workers who are fatally injured  while at work.  These and other amendments  to our laws have been asked for  by all sections of labour. If the  Social Credit Government is  . wise it will bring in these amend"  ing Bills at this Session of the  .Legislature.

The final admission of the fact  that man alone is insufficient  unto himself is beautifully illustrated in the opera by the presentation of a prayer made in  stone, to "Tzinquaw," as a last  resort by the tribe. The timely  arrival of the Thunderbird. who  overcomes the evil one is beautifully presented.  In the story of the Cowichan  \tribe, they as a people had been  reduced to abject poverty because of the depredations of  Quannis, who invaded the/waters  of Cowichan Bay, and destroyed  there all edible fish. The human  aid in the. form of neighboring  tribesmen, had been unavailing  to vanquish, the spirit of evil.  Parallel stories of the intervention of the All-Powerful spirit  of Good are evident in the folklore of every civilization on  earth.  The tribal songs and, dances  are all performed.;by^members  Of the COwichan tribe. Even the  youngest of the cast, a tiny baby,  is a member. The 'soul songs' or  personal, songs of members of  the tribe are the sources of "much  of the material. These, however, >  by tribal custom, are not permitted to be used by the living.  After they have ordinarily been  sung again. Mr. Morrison was  .given permission to incorporate  a. very few of these songs in the  music.  In the performance of the  Opera, all performers wear the  tribal costumes, which are veritable works of art in themselves.  Miss Maclntyre, having assist-  Gibsons Briefs  by F.B.

Woods  HigSi School Systems, Good or Sad  There are more young men and women graduating from high  schools every year, and more young people in our juvenile courts.  In the face of this, we wonder what is the matter with our educational system. Could it be we who are putting, too much stress on  non-essentials, instead of fitting the young people for positions they  will eventually take? Are we looking too far into the past and not  far enough into the future? Some of our greatest men have lacked  formal education, but they have made it up by their firm convictions  and stalwart citizenship, a situation which makes one wonder if  cur high school system really pays off for the young.  Would we not be better off to have more, vocational training,  ;such as commercial, so thai pupils can walk out of school Friday  evening and into a job Monday morning? In fields of work, that  could not be taught in school, would not an apprenticeship after  grade ten be the answer to the educational problem?  More and more of our young people are thinking of school as  a boring necessity. They must go to school because our society  keeps them out of jobs for as long as possible to leave the jobs for  adults.  If pupils are really going to get any good out of school, they  must think of it as a privilege not as a burden to be borne untiL  they are old enough to get a job. It seems that a decent system of  apprenticeship would give these same pupils a useful way to receive  an education and a small income to help pay for their education. In  our opinion, they should be admitted into their chosen work at the  grade ten level at least.  Alarm Clock  Troubles  by Sally Ann  Of all the inventions of our  modern age, I  think the most  soul-jarring    and    unnecessary  one is the alarm clock. Instead  of awakening slowly and relax-  edly, I bounce up in .the middle  of a wonderful dream  to hear  '    that,    horrible    ringing    sound:  daring me to go back to sleep.  This is impossible, of course, for  there is always a guilty feeling,  and anyhow it is utterly impossible to capture the end of the  idyllic dream.  An alarm clock is, in my  opinion, one of the bugbears of  civilized life. It has a sound resembling a cross between a frustrated fire siren and Big Ben,  that clanging piece of London  life. There are many different  kinds of alarm clocks, so it  puzzles me as to just why someone cannot invent an entirely  new and enjoyable sound to  wake a person painlessly. Clock-  radio manufacturers are on the  right track, but I always manage  to awake to the middle of '/Charley's Other Aunt," or to "Eat  Dipsy Doodles, the cereal with  a bang!" at which point a cannon  goes off, making me wonder if  my neighbor has finally shot his  wife. p       ���  To my way of thinking, a  nice sound for an alarm clock,  if such a thing is a must, would  be a soft, well-played waltz,  with no commercial or jolly  little announcer to disturb me...  and jar my arising. My neighbor  Cooking Anecdote  by Art Thomson  Jut    Skinner   got   the   brain  wave of trying his hand at cook-,  in. Because, we had a lot of work  to do the hands were numerous.  Spits he,  "Gawd 111 need  ta  make   double   tha. amount   er  these   muffins   cuse   there   an't  nuff here fer a Shanghi roster."  After many brokin dishes and  terrible  oths,  staggers  put Jut  by way,;of'door.?���'���-h';������/���'������ .'���������'���������  "Finished," fires he. I goes in  andr sampels them and holly jig-  gard, "Competen with the brick  factories agen?" tortis I.  Not attall attall, returns he.  Did yer put the quired mont of  Caraway Ceed'in?"  "Corse, Corse," Jungs he.  "How bout the time?" fires I.  "Says 30 minutes it does."  "Wall���-drones he, since i wis  dublin the quantity I figured I,d  better double the time too."  has a nice little clock, with a  charming tinkle, clear sounding  and sweet toned, and best of all,  just barely, loud enough to gently  awake him. Unfortunately, the  manufacturer of this gem, nearest to my ideal of an alarm clock,  went out of business quite a  while ago, and T am unable to  get one.by hook or crook, barring of course, s t e a 11 h g my  neighbor's. Thus I shall go on,  waking each morning to the burring sound of my alarm clock  (of Scots make I imagine) and  groping madly to shut the hideous sounding thing  off.  Oh well, maybe, St. Peter  doesn't have any, in which case  my last sleep, at least, will be  in peace. '  r  CLEARANCE   SALE!

A man appeared around the  corner and began to walk up the  block towards the grill. He was  dressed well, but not for this  weather as he was hatless and  his suit bore the evidence of an  all-night exposure t,o the elements. He turned abrubtly and  entered, slumped on a stool and  ordered coffee.  I served him and lingered to  study his features, my curiosity  getting the best of me. He was  a haggard looking guy with  frightened looking eyes���fear  and misery was mirrored in his  every  glance.  He  didn't  touch  his coffee. He didn't say a word.  "Coffee   no good,  mister?"  I  said -with an attempt at cheerfulness.  The sound of my voice shook  him out of his reverie and he  muttered, "Sure, sure it's okay."  Then with quivering fingers, he  pulled a small white envelope  out of his pocket and emptied  its contents into his coffee.  "Medicine?" I asked, my curiosity again getting the beter of  me.  "Yeah���yeah,    I    guess    you  could call it that," he muttered,  ��� and then grinned weakly. "It'll  fix me up good."  Aware that this fellow wasn't  going to be much of a conversationalist, I turned back to my  window-gazing, but a moan  from my friend at the counter,  who was by this time slumped  forward, head cushioned on  arms, brought me back to the  present.  I stepped over to him, at a loss  for the moment as to what I  should do. Then, taking his untouched coffee with its "medicine" in it, I put the cup to his  lips and made him drink nearly  all of the luke-warm brew.  When I drew back, he slipped  back into his original position  across, the counter/Thinking to  leave him alone for a few minutes, I went into the back room  for a bopk.  I came back to the front of  the grill a few minutes later to  find my customer sprawled out  on the floor, his face contorted,  eyes bulging and flecks of foam  coming from between lips that  drew back from clenched teeth.  Then, one last spasm shook his  frame and he was still. Moving  forward, I felt for a piilse and  tHiding none, phoned for th_,  police.  |VIinutes later, two prowler-  car officers entered the grill and  began to search the body and  check everything with the policeman's methodical exactness. .  My inquiry as to the reason  for the guy's sudden collapse  was answered by the younger  cop, who said, "something in his  coffe, buddy; maybe,you'd better  come with us. It looks a lot like  arsenic poisoning to me. .."  The men and women who serve in Canada's Defence  Forces ��� serve the cause of our freedom.

L-  by Jeff Newman  - This hapless day, which was  a holiday from school, I did  wake at the- hour of ten of the  morning, and down to a belated  breakfast of ample proportions.  Whilst performing my toilet  did chance to note the water did  but feebly run through the pipes,  which I set about to remedy with  all due haste.  As I made my way upwards to  the intake of water fashioned in  our stream, I did, with admirable  foresight, go reinforced with  food in my hand, for. I knew  well I must needs employ all  energy to the task before me.  Upon finding my way beset  ; with a recent overgrowth of  brambles and briers which necessitated a vigorous hacking with,  my machette, I took not into consideration that my leather gloves  had become slippery with the  wetness of the branches, and my  weapon didst slip with all.nim-  bleness from my hand and so did  gouge a goodly gash into my leg,  through boot and britches: To  which all thought of water  works did flee my mind.  As the blood did flow freely  and I became faint, it behoved  me to make all Haste to the cabinet within the house, but it is  ray conviction that this I could  '-not have done without the aid of  a. cjelightful aroma of fresh cookies coming to me upon the  breeze. Of a sudden, summoning  all my remaining strength I didst  hasten twards the delicious odor.  None the less, it was, of a truth,  a desperate struggle to accomplish my destination.     ,  When this was done,;.I. did fall  upon a plate of cookies, the  nourishmeint from which did  enable me to carry on with the  dressing of my wound.  Hard upon trie completion of ,  Of my attempts at first. aid,  which, -of -a -surety, -were an  effort without peer. I did lie  upon the couch, news sheet in  hand and cookies by my side.  And so did manage to bear with  my suffering until the luncheon  hour.  Sustenance did so far strengthen me that I did sleep quietly  until the hour for tea. Several  pots of the heady brew together  with the pungent cookies, some  crumpets and bread and butter  did so alleviate my sufferings  that I did find the will to dress  for dinner.  Later, having partaken lightly  of a meal of seven coures I did  make my way to the amusement  hall wherein I tripped a measure  and made merry with a will  until the hours of the morning.  It was a time later that the realization came upon me, that,'with  the morrow, my sorely lacerated  and throbbing member would  again hold me prisoner to my  my couch, and the last conscious  thought that I did have was the  hope that the cookies, of which  I was passing fond, would last  in sufficient quantitiy another  day.
