Mr..'Q.-_ Russell, principal of  Roberts Creek Elementary  School, acted as MC for the  occasion. ��     :  ias Large  The opening guns of the election campaign were fired by the  CCF. at a meeting in the School Hall Saturday, May 2nd. Speakers  were Mrs. Dorothy Steeves? who is candidate in North Vancouver,  and the. candidate for Mackenzie, Tony Gargrave. The keen interest  in the issue of the campaign was evidenced by the large and enthusiastic attendance,-and the number of questions put to the speakers..  Mris.   Steeves  dealt with the  general CCF  policy as  applied  to Provincial issues.  Tony_ Glargrave fctated that,  "this election will be one of  greater confusion than the last  election." He urged Voters to  stop and think. He said. "On one'  side you have three parties representing  private"  enterprise,  failed to bring down such Legislation, and instead had insisted,  on a vote on the Educational,  bills, the Rolston Formula. Mru.  Gargrave considered this to foe?  most retrogressive legislation^  having the effect of curtailing  educational opportunities for  the average child, especially;  those  in   rural   areas,   and  ina  which  is   really  dominated   by  ,   ,    .  :   large corporations. On the other".TPlacHig   an  increasing- taxation  side is the���'���party vwhich'always  considers human welfare first  and will work together for the  good' of the whole."  Mir. Gargrave continued. "We  must be realistic, a Co-Operative  Commonwealth cannot be socialistic oii a provincial basis. There  burden on land. This latter'  would prove a heavy burden on  the home owner. Every member  of each party in opposition- ami4  even one member on the Government side, had felt compelled-  to vote against the bill, even*  though it meant the defeat oil  the Government,  and an  early"  are many practical issues which      ,    ...        ..-._,,    ���.   _,,       .��� ,  will   be   improved  proVincially ���lJfctl?.n, with further delay in  with plans  formed  for federal attend^g   to   the   many   other  expansion when, that time comes, urgent matters, of' legislation...  such as Hospital insurance."  On Education, Mr. Gargrave  said,"we are proud of our educational system which has been  ' built by the^ people rather than  by legislature. Costs are rising  and will because of the steady  increase in the number of children attending our schools and  the increased length of. stay: of>  "students'.*"1 We "want a modern  progressive , education for, all  with an increased share of the  cqsts to be borne by the province. The CCF will restore and  expand libraries and Pro-Rec  services."   ,' r  Mr. Gargrave stated that  public ownership, of industries  aire needed to control prices,  keep costs down and prevent  monopolies  by  larger   corpora-  Highways most .needed are the  main arteries. These are almost  completed. The time has" come  when secondary *rpads . must foe  constructed. Mr. Gargrave took  a firm stand against tolls oil ...  secondary highways. The road,  allotment in Macknezie riding..  was increased this year..  When   asked   if   CGF;-Voters**'  Gargrave said it was quite'��� IegalA  to use the. single vote but eacfe -'  , person must vote as he wishes^.  He said "when there is a CCF"  government in Victoria they wilE  abolish the alternate vote.  Mr. Gargrave told the meeting:  (that he felt it his duty to travel:  the ' constituency   and   tell   the-*  voters   about  Venezuela,   "la&cfll'  without    liberty    plus    terrible v  tion.   "This  will   not  interfere    P��v^ty^ described by.his Sbciali^  with free enterprise or cause  social chaos as the opposition  will have you believe. Saskatchewan bonds/ are the highest  in the bond market today" he  said. / ���������..'���.  "Automobile insurance would  be handled by the Government,  as in Saskatchewan, with promise of very substantial reduction in premiums as compared-  to those now being paid here,  and at the same time furnish  more assured protection to  persons who may suffer injury  by collisftmi, etc."  He said we must.get ready for  peace,"there is no need to have  war to create employment, we  can use pur food surplus to feed  the hungry, give foreign aid and  employ our own people, a new  visionary movement for the good  of  the whole world." .  Mr. Gargrave reported on the  proceedings at the last session  of the Legislature. He stated that  the opposition had shown' they  were ve:ry anxious to co-operate  with the Government in putting  Credit Opponent as "the mosf^  advanced Sociai Credit govern--  ment in the world today."..

Now that the opening guns in the Provincial Election Campaign have been fired in the constituency, we are constrained  to make a few observations. v  We see Liberal supporters and members hastening! to hear  Xiberal speakers, Social Credit supporters attending the meetings of S6cial Credit candidates, and so forth with CCF and  "Conservatives. This we agree is well, one gets acquainted with  one's candidate, hears the propounding and amplification of  the Party Platform, and hears criticism (rarely constructive)  of the opponents of one's chosen candidate. One hears one's  own views and opinions dilated upon,* and enjoys the enlargement of one's own thoughts and political actions.  In this, day, it does seem extremely strange, not to see  groups of Liberals, for example, attending the Social Credit.  or CCF meetings. They would seem the best places to obtain  first-hand information of one's opponents. One could glean  knowledge of political importance, learn of the plans for government of one's self and one's fellow constituents, become  acquainted with the opposing candidates, simply by meeting  them and hearing them expound their theories.  This could not be considered disloyalty to one's party, but  simply satisfying a thirst for knowledge in the field.  As for the candidates themselves, it could be that the  finest of them present themselves in the best light possible,  and these may be slightly biased views. Would one-learn more  ; hy hearing an opponent speak of the. obverse:..-.jsfijjg^���.���Would  greater knowledge of the points of the various platforms ^  gained by hearing them discussed and criticised by others?  We feel- so. \'  As electors, voters are choosing^that person who wilf, in  theory at least, go into' the Government as their own representative, to make, unmake, or amend legislation to govern ^1.- , , Q^.u  themselves. He or She will decide just how much of the voters' nearms at .becaeit  money will be spent, and'how, and upon what. He may have  ~to help decide how manyof you, and in what capacity, you may  Ibe required to serve in armed forces of the Nation.  SECHELT    WATER    HATES v  Editor, The Coast News,  Sir:���-- /.'.'-  We have before us an ^application for an increase in water  rates at "Sechelt, and it. seems  to us that certain 'features of  this would have a news value  which your paper would be interested in having for publication. The details of application  are set out in a notice which  we understand was published in  your paper a few weeks ago.   ,  The application has been made  by Sechelt Waterworks Ltd.,  a  new subsidiary of Union Steamships Ltd. formed for the purpose   of   operating   the   waterworks system at Sechelt as an  undertaking separate  from  the  steamship operation of the Company.  The   proposed  rates   are  practically   the  same   as   those  proposed   three   years   ago,   at  which time they were thoroughly gone into at a public hearing  at Sechelt. The reason ho decision was made at that time was  principally the fact that it seemed to the Commission that the  waterworks system ought to be  divorced   from   the   steamships  operations of Union Steamships  Ltd.    The   Company   evidently  ran into a number of practical  difficulties in making the separa-N  tion   but   the   C o rji mi s si on  declined   to   approve   the   new  rates  until  the  separation  was  made.   Arrangements   are  now  being, made for the operation of  the  waterworks  system  at  Sechelt by  a  separate subsidiary  company and the. rates: question  will shortly have* to be decided.  Since a very- full investigation,  has already been made, a public  hearing would for the most part  be  simply   going   over   ground  already covered. The record of  tthV prewqus hearihgf is with us  here arid, together with our staff  reports, provides the basic information  nee essary.   For this  reason it has not been our intention to  hold   another public.  We'.. have* received a large  number of protests from water  users many of whom have sug-  He will help to determine rates of taxation, award con-. ^ ^ ^^t^tS  tracts, define powers, and many other items which taken to-:% ��*��** "s^LS  gether amount to governing. ^     ^ .. to us to let the press know that  To do these things as you, the Voters wish him to do to the present application is subserve you and your Province well, he really should be a rather  fine, honest, incorruptible sort of person. Your knowledge of  him and his party should be as complete as it is possible to  be, and your information should come from as varying sources  as can be aranged. \  ��>o not be afraid to go out after this information. Learn  all you can of all the contestants for your favor.  Informed electors are more likely to choose wisely the  man whom they would employ than those who are merely  opinionated. ,     ^  After all this, nine times out of ten you will support your  own man more strongly than ever, but you will know why. he  has your preference/ #  Correction  In our last issue we reported  upon the Liberal Convention at  Powell River, giving the Nominator and Seconder of the Nomination.  It  seems,   however,   that   the  ���'i '  Gremlins  who  go   about  doing  go%_ deeds(?) were active, and  one complete line of type was  omitted from the final copy.  The report should have read  "Mr. Malcolm Mcphail of Gibsons nominated Mr.  Batt  Mac  lntyre  as  Liberal  Candidate."  We regret this ommission, and  attempt hereby to rectify our  grievous error.

So he opened  a bank account in every place he played. Any experienced traveller will sympathize with this man's distaste for running out  of money away from home. But there -is*a much better way of  avoiding such a situation than his method.  The safest" plan is to buy Travellers Cheques at the Bank  of Montreal before you leave town. Inexpensive iii price, they  can be cashed ^only by the person who purchased them. That's  because lie signs, each cheque as he buys it, and, for comparison, signs again in the presence of* the person who cashes  it for him.

Climbing about among the  great logs that the winter seas  have   deposited   on   the   shore,  she was garnering a fair harvest  of this favorite fuel.   ���  Gathering bark necessitates  much stooping, and bending, and  while in this position, Nan was  attacked from the rear. Wrenching herself around, she found  herself confronting a brown,  furry, bewhiskered countenance,  from which eminated gutteral  barks and growls.  She became instantly vocal,,  and dashed up the beach to the  home of a neighbor, Mrs. Sand-  berg.  Hearing the cries and the commotion, the neighbor on^ the  other side, Mr. Robert Stephens,  appeared armed with a shotgun.  He grasped: .the situation at once,  and fired at the creature, now  said to be a 'sea-otter', wounding it-slightly.  The sea:otter, if such it was,  flouhded over the drift logs and  into the sea, leaving as evidence  of the incident a little,trail of  its own blood along the pebbles.  Nan possesses the only other  evid.ence���^punctures in her  thigh from the s teeth of the  animal, which ; yvounds Mrs.  Sandberg hadisy this time clean-/  sed and disinfectedVigainst pos*  .   sible developments;**   V  Long-timei   residents   of   the  sea-coast- explain   this  Oriusudl  ���,". behaviour  on/;4;b;e,; part pf such  :; ashy creatu^  otter or a seal, as being tne result eitherfof a sick;ammal being  gashed   iip   on  the   shore   and  .    belng^caught|Off guard [by.

Men from the neighborhood,  under the able direction of Mr.  Mutter, the President of the  W i, 1 s o n Creek Community  Center, have really produced  something which will be of value  to the area from now on.  The ground which was available was heavily covered with  stumps, d e a d f a 11 and some  standing trees when they began.  This has all been cleared, all  stumps removed, and the ground  thoroughly worked over, only  wanting, as of last iweek-end the  final smoothing job.  Not only have men contributed  their labor and time, but  machines have been donate'd for  the necessary heavy work.  The first ball practice was  mooted for last week-end, and  jthen the work of setting up  swings and teeters for the small  fry was expected to begin.  Wilson Creek Community is  to be congratulated upon its  attainment, and it is hoped that  interest will continue, and that  the place will be made beautiful,  and that it will enjoy the spot  in the community life which has  been intended for it.  * IT IS IN THE INTEREST OF THE PEOPLE  OF BRITISH COLUMBIA THAT WE HAVE  A STABLE GOVERNMENT WITH A WORKING    MAJORITY.  ^IT IS ' CLEAR THAT  THE .SOCIAL CREDIT  MOVEMENT IS THE  ONLY ONE THAT HAS  A CHANCE OF SECURING AN OVER-ALL  MAJORITY.'(  DON'T BE MISLED.

House A is showing the  way in the senior boy's league  so far with two wins and a tie.  next is House C with one win  and a tie, B is last with no wins  and three setbacks. On Friday,  House A took a 2-r-l decision  from B. Marsh got his second  win of the season. Nestman was  credited with the loss; it was  Jacks's first game of the year.  Wednesday's game between A  and C ended in a four���four  sawoff. House C jumped to a  4���1 lead in the second frame  but A took advantage of a couple  of errors in-the last innings and  pushed across three runs to ^tie  things up.  The Junior Boys League standings are the same as the senior  boys with A on top, C next and  B last. On Thursday, House A  whipped C, 6-3. -  House B senior girls are leading their league with two wins  While A and C are tied with a  one draw and one loss combination.

Last  week, C stopped A, 16-���6, and B  tripped up C with a score of 19  to 14.  All the records from last  year's track events were found  after being buried in a desk.

House  A   was  /last, . away.   down-. ...the  ladder with only 179 points for  the day.  The top point-maker was  Norma Turner in Junior Competition. Norma finished the day  with 30 points.

KITCHEN-  fcy Eric Lindwall  A dreadful experience the  other day still has me shaking in  my size twelves. It was the day  we twere to get inoculated for  small-pox or something and I  was none too happy about the  whole thing. Needles have a  detrimental effect on my courage, especially nice, sharp, shiny  needles in the hands of a cruel,  heartless doctor..  The fateful hour drew near  and with knees clicking^ like  castanets, I crept down the hall  itowards >the nurse's room. Why,  oh why, did I ever agree to go  -through this torture chamber?  As far as I'm concerned, the  Spanish Inquisition has nothing  over on the Department of Public  Health.  Shuffling slowjy along in the  line-up,   surrounded   by   quiet,  wide-eyed little children, I had  plenty of time to work myself  into a  state  of hysteria.  Poor  little children, they don't know  - -what Jthey are facing, I thought.  Then the door opened, a name  ���was called and a  brave,  little  child went  to   the   sacrifice.   I  waited to .hear the screams  of  agony,   but no,   out   came  the  child bearing a triumphant look  and a superior smile when she  saw my pale face and staring,  bloodshot  eyes.   Darn   kid.   No  nerves, I guess!  Ah, the fateful summons! The  jnu'rse,. with a smile that was  Supposed to reassure me beckoned and, as if mesmerized, I en  tered the /room.  Everything turned black as I  saw the doc poise the needle  above my precious little arm. I  lookedwildy around, for ah  avenue of escape but it was rtoo .  late���the needle was in and out  before ���! khew it! \      >  Again the. nurse's smile, and I  was let out the door, frightened  and pale after my gruelling experience, to run the gauntlet of  .those cynical young eyes and���  well, all I can say is never again,  never again!  at the 5 feet four inch mark, a  feat that has never been equalled in the district. ���  Mike Poole leaped 18 feet 2^  inches in the broad jump to  walk off with that title.
