The new Cafe is very attractive in appearance, with a very  pleasing arrangements ol seating  accomodation, and the decorative scheme is bright ���- and  modern.        /  The work space at the rear,  though small, is very efficiently  arranged. *'  This should be a very convenient little spot for travellers  as well as visitors, and the  village, especially in the summer  months, can very well use one-  ' more lunch spot. ^ T  We wish Erla every success  in her new cafe, "and hope she  will continue long among us.  arme Men's Wear  Now FulBy Equipped  Vince Prewer reports that he  now has a practically complete  stock of Men's Wear on hand at  his new place of business in Bal's  Block in Gibsons. *  This, is not Vince's. .first business venture here.

When Port Mellon: re-opened  and the work crews were on  hand, Vince braiched into the  second cafe in that center. Once  the work crews left, and the Port  Mellon population settled down,  Vince had other plans.  Three weeks ago Vince's first  large shipment of clothing stocks  arrived, and there was much  planning and re-arranging to get  the most value for the space at  hand.  Vince feels that he is now all  set for a good summer, and has  everything under way to give  the kind of service he feels such  a business deserves.  Wendy Yates  Sechelt May Queen  Wendy Yates, daughter of Mr.  and Mrs. Frank Yates, was voted  May Queen from the seven original candidates, and her two  attendants, also elected by popular vote, from among the five  running, are Judy Gray and  Marda Walker. v  Elections were properly held,  following a regular campaign.

It had been understood by the Commission that  all such grants were for the  purpose of purchasing books.  However, the Commission was  quite willing to ease these restrictions, if 'the Provincial Government also saw fit; to permit  the use of part of it& grant for  the-same purpose.    Tyf ���  A request from ^a property  owner on the Indian Reserve for  Water Service where^none presently efxists was refused. It was  held that no. extension of the  water service be made" at "present.  Connections of water systems  now required , are -practically  complete.

Jones, and Samuel Palumbo,  son of Mr. and Mrs Samuel Pal-  umbo of McMurdo, B.C: was  solemnised at St. Mary's Church,  the Rev. Father Kenney officiated. ���  It was a lovely ceremony, with  all the attendants,.gowned in  soft April colors. The6bride wore'  a gown of white sheer, with a  floor length veil, and the bridesmaids, Miss Joyce Connor and  Miss Lila Farnham were also in  sheer, one plaest pink, and one  soft blue. The maid of honor,  Frances Jones, the brides young-  lister/ was in dainty yellow taffeta.  Clarence Palumbo was the  Best "Man, and the Bride wos  given away by her brother,  Ralph Jones, of Golden.  Members^ of both the Brides  and Groom's families were in  Gibsons for the . wedding, and  remained to enjoy a short holiday here.  The youngs.,couple left for  Seattle, from were they plan to  drive east" to Saskatchewan  before returning to their new  home in McMurdo.  Other out of town visitors for  the day were Mr. and Mrs. Reiter  from Pender Harbour, and their  family.       ��� .  Following the wedding, a small  reception was held at the home  of Mrs. Jones.  chests i  nest Speaker Tel  itimat ?r ogres  In response to the request and demands of several responsible  citizens and citizens1 bodies in the locality, the Coast News on Wednesday contacted Mr. Doug Welsh, one of the partners of the Mar-  well Construction Company, ,to try to discover what was the,  program and intention of the Company in regard to the Port Mellon  Road. I  Mr.  Welsh  reports there   are ~ ~*~  several conditions and facts to  contend with in the area through  which the road passes that are  rather unusual in B.C. Road  building, and that due to these  conditions, the Department of  Public Works had advised Mar-  well Construction to halt *their  building program temporarily,  to await improvement of at least  some of these adverse conditions.  The cost to both the Company  and the Government was mounting to prohibitive proportions,  to continue attempts at construction when the unusually wet  weather was accompanied by a:  frost free winter, making use  of existing materials impossible.  According to Mr. Welsh, the  material available at the site of  the construction is very poor  when one considers that the  specifications call for the completion of a number one highway, and not a logging road.  : In addition to this, he went on,  the long fire season last summer  prevented, the removal of the  'timber etc., from the; - right of  way, and due. to that delay^ the  .removal of debris ran onlinto the  , fall, pushing,^ct^ak,c^str^1;ipn.,  .' further- hkfi^iM^'^^eifr^^^  s_eason.  Mr. Welsh contends that Mar-  well Construction Company has  more equipment per mile right  on the road waiting towork than  -on any similar piece of highway  construction   in   B.C.,   and   that  the Company is faced with continually rising costs. Therefore,  they are, he said, just as anxious  to see the road completed as the  people who would use it. .  On Friday this week, April  10th, the Engineers are due in  Gibsons, to check on the amount  of improvements in earth conditions, and if there has. been  .sufficient drying, the work will  recommence next week.  If   the   conditions   have   sufficiently  improved,   it  will  not  take Marwell Construction long  to   complete   the   short  amount  of the road that isleft, and,Mr.  Welsh assures Coast News that  this will be one of the Company's  happiest moments.  BOARD  OF  TRADE  INQUIRY  In reply to a letter from, the  Gibsons Board  of   Trade,   N.M.-  MacCallum, Divisional Engineer  istates that "Work should recommence about the midle of April,  and it is expected should be completed about the middle of July."  He goes on to state that this Port  Mellon Road runs  through  extremely   difficult   terrain,    and  that the Department will be just  as pleased to see the work completed as the residents will be.  At the 'Village' at Sechelt this  week, the Native Sisterhood held  a. very successful tea and Sale  of Work, convened by Mrs. Ernie  Joe and Mrs. Art Jeffries. Raffle  tickets sold by Bernadette Joe  netted prizes for Ernie Peason,  Mrs. A. Louis, and third, No. 322  is as yet unclaimed.   ���  A day of sports was part of  the program, with baseball in  the afternoon and dancing in the  evening.  At the Board of Trade meet-  ing in Sechelt on March 25th,  the guest speaker of the evening  was Mr. George G. Vincent, of  the Aluminum Company of  Canada, Ltd.  He spoke of the progress of  the .development, and stated that  production would start in the  spring of 1954. The commencement of production there will  make Canada the -largest producer of aluminum in the world,  with Kitimat the largest promotion unit.  Kitimat, he stressed, woulcf  not be a 'company town', but  would be a self-governing municipality, with the greatest possible encouragement extended  to other industries to locate  there ,and take advantage of the  huge power production there.  it is hoped, Mr. Vincent said;,,  thatv..-'a  piilp   and   paper  plant.;  ��� would*-be ideated there/'as weii;:  as other  highly  important and*  valuable industries. :  Mr. Vincent dealt with'some-  ���pf the, criticisms being levelled  at the Alcan Development upon  the park' and the wild life there,.  Pie states that only two percent':  iof  the   Tweedsmuir   Park  area*  will be- affected  by the power  development, and that as far as  the Beaver were concerned, the-  report  of James Hatter  of the  B.C.     Provincial     Government  Game Departmen indicated that  the annual beaver harvest since  1936,   including   that    of   both,  white and-Indian trappers, could;  not  have   exceeded  $150.00   in?  value.  The enormous value ��� of this  plant development to the Province ought to more than offset,  this loss.  This coming season, there will'  .be between eight and ten thousand men employed on the job*  The great tunnel, half a mile  inside the mountain is almost  completed. This tunnel is 1100'  feet long, 100 feet high, and 80*  feet wide.  Mr. Vincent commented upon  the fact that his company ancT  the Provincial Government had  .signed a very real agreement,.  snd that both signatories at present were living up to it.  -���������������- "' " ���*��� ������������    ..-III.. .1     ��� I il      ���...��� I M|��J  Social Credit Leagise  Meetings wDI be held in every  area of the Peninsula next week,  starting with Gibsons on Monday, April 13th, and concluding  at Half Moon Bay on Saturday,  April 18th.

Phone Gibsons 45W /  ���SSox 6, Gibsons. British Columbia  lie School f^  During the last few weeks, in travelling about this area, we  liave been regaled with many conflicting opinions upon our Paper.  The biggest and most contentious subject at  the moment is  that of the School Page. We like to print it, because we are greatly  interested in the activities of the Schools and the Students. It has  been our belief that most readers, whether they have chldren who  are in attendance or not, are also interested in the doings of the  young people. The tax-payers of the area have reason to be interested in the buildings themselves, in the staffs who teach in them,  who care for the children and who care for the physical structures  too. ,  Many readers have told us that we devote too much space to  this subject. Others think we should have items written by adults.  usho are connected with the schools, as teachers, trustees, or anybody else who is actively occupied with the schools.  Other readers believe we should not have a schoole^age at all.  They simply are not interested, and don't see why we should devote  lialf one of our eight pages���or more, as happened last week���to  the subject.  We would very much like to have phone calls, letters, or verbal  expressions of opinion on the matter from anyone who is interested, eithecpro or con. Meantime, this week we publish the winning  essay on "Industries on the Peninsula" by one of the fourteen_or  ���younger group.  Reader's Ri  COMMENTS   ON  ESSAY  Editor, The Coast News,  JSIr :��� ���  r ��ja reading with pleasure the  interesting essay by Jeff Newman, I could not help but notice1  the following: "The year.55 B.C.  brought the great general, Julius  Caesar to the shores of Britain.  Within a century he had succeeded   in   conquering   the   island."  This is incorrect. Julius had a,  few whacks at it, but found the  British tribes good and tough.  JLed by a chieftainess, Boadicea,  the British twice burned the  ZEtoman London to the ground.  ^Julius Caesar returned to Rome  and died, and it was not until  the year 44 A.D. that Claudius  Caesar included DeBritt into the  Homan, Empire.  When  contemplating  crossing  the   English   Channel,- Claudius  found he had a mutinous army  on his hands, as the troops declined to leave the known world.  After pacifying his army, in the  autumn   of   43   A.D.,   Claudius  sent about forty thousand men  to England, with instructions tot  his general not to bring things  to a final defeat before calling  Mm  from  Rome.   The  message  came, and Claudius set off with  a   great  retinue,   including  the  Praetorian Guard, elephants  -with   howdahs   and   black   mahouts. The defeat of the British  took place at Colchester and; the  chieftain, Caractacus, was taken  -'���' to Rome in chains. On reaching,  Rome;-;\ Claudius put on a  "See;  ; .^hat $ ve,;dohe" gala (Sity; f or the ��  populace, Caractacus walking in  the procession in chains.  Regarding   the    accents    and  dialects, does Mr. Newman take  the   standpoint   that  he   speaks  good English  and  others,  we'll  gay in -London,  Cape Town: or  Sydney do not? Again,' if I may  take you to the trial of our Lord,  a young maid heard Peter speaking and said,   "Surely thou art  *a Galilean for thy speech betray-  eth   thee."   And,    as   the   little  London    cockney   said   to   the  Yank, "We don't sye (say) 'Were  am I at?' We sye, 'Were is my  'at?'.  Again thanking Mr. Newman  for. his interesting essay.  Edward J. Atlee  PuSd Plants  Use Sawmill Waste  With news of pulp plants projected for the interior of the  province .it is interesting to see  how material on the coast that  was fromerly considered waste  is now utilized.  Of the 211,000 tons of Kraft  pulp produced in  1951,  eighty-^  five percent offline raw material  ���wa"s derived from sawmill waste.  ��� Smaller sawmills which are  within trucking distance of  large mills, are now selling their  waste which, formerly would  have been destined for the burner and theplywood mills now  are virtually waste free.  All of this is good forest conservation  practice.  In  order  to  give  recognition  to  persons who have,  by, their  example personified the golden  rule,   the   Gibsons   and  District  Board of Trade will present annually a Good Citizenship Award  Decision to  do  so was made  at  the recent general  meeting.  % Several names have already been  forwarded to the committee, for  ; approval  and  investigation but  it. is felt that a good number of  our more' generous citizens are  hiding their light.  This award will hot be made  lightly and in order to have fair  and equitable choice it is necessary to have as wide a range,  of candidates as there are good  -   citizens.  The area . covered by this  award will be bounded by the  Hopkins ,; Landing , district and  that of Roberts Creek.  Any person,' man or woman*is'  /eligible. It may be pointed out  at this time that the candidates  themselves will, naturally, be  reluctant to; proffer their  names so this duty will fall on  the fehoulders <of friends and  neighbors who feel that good  citizenship should be rewarded  and  recognized.  It is intended to present a  ��� lasting memento of the, occasion to the person chosen. The  committee in charge of the  award' is sworn to secrecy in  respect to ^the names of candidates..  ; ':+-:-���;:���, ���      Vv  .: ,.  '.    .'.,' .���������'..

Th,e publicity support that you  and your fellow editors have  given to this Movement is very  much, appreciated, I assure you.

BC A A Suggests  The   Canadian  g^ing   across  the line  to  the   United  States  is   only   allowed  to. purchase,  duty-free,   One   Hundred  Dollars  worth   of  goods.  "It is time the One Hundred.  Dollars of duty-free purchases  was   raised,"   said   Mr.    Clark  .v Simpkins: at <'; a director's meeting of the B.C. Automobile  /Association; "It is absurd that  Gapadian tourists returning to  their own country are allowed  to bring back only; the same  amount of duty-free goods as  they did in 1936; #e all know  that One Hundred Dollars in  1953 buys half; of; what it did in  '36. The ���D!b:;ii*a>;.^yalue^;;ii.ais.  shrunk. Prices have gone jup  and the federal Government  has made no change in an out  of date  customs  regulation."   ��'The BCAA feels,^ and rightly  so," went on Mr. Simp k^jja s,  "'that a Canadian tourist shbtiid  have the^prjyiiege of purchasing  more goods if he so desires' arid  bringing them back duty free.  One Hundred Dollars today  barely purchases a few gifts for  the family arid the odd souvenir.  Why should Canadian travelers  have to abide by a regulation  that was made 17 years ago?  Today the amount is far too low  for duty-free purchases and  should be raised to bring it up  to a value more on a par with:  the 1953 Dollar."  sprays or powders.  Two years ago we challenged  a. lady to try our ideas on a  bed that would not grow anything, not even earthworms,; in  spite of huge doses of fertilizer.  We advised a thin covering of  compost from a neighbor's heap'  and a heavy mulch of - crushed  leaves, peat moss and bracken.  Last month  came  a chance  to  revisit, and what a. change in  that garden bed. Three or four  inches of nice dark loam that  would delight any v gardener;  while the large vegetable garden  under her husband's care, is on  its way to near perfect soil.  Some wag compared a compost heap to a goat; they would  both eat anything, even tin cans.  This was  a  libel   on   the   goat,  Thursday April 9, 1953  The Coast News  3  which is a most clean and careful feeder. But we get vexed  when people still waste twigs,  leaves ,eggshells, scraps of wool  and cotton and citrus skins, and  yet complain the they cannot get  stuff for a compost box. Eggshells, dried and powdered, are  often1  better   than   lime.    July  bracken is full of nourishment,  and a compost, heap makes a  small quantity of animal wanure  go a long, long way.  If you cannot cover the entire  garden with compost, do try it  on one or two beds, or tuck a  shovel full around treasured!  plants.  iti'  -Ji.  ��iya>.��  BUT WE TACKED A COLLEGE DEGREE   RIGHT  INTO   OUR   BUDGET-PLAN  r  Well, I simply mean that young Doug is going to get what  I've always missed. I'd have a better job in my company today  if my family had been able to give  me a college education.  It happened a year ago. Maisie  and I had just about given up  the idea as hopeless. Doug had  just started high school, which  meant a good deal of expense,  and then he fell desperately ill  with rheumatic fever. Our debts had us crippled.  Then one day, when I was cashing my pay-cheque at the  bank, I happened to get into conversation with the Accountant  ���-chap called Henry Baldwin who goes to our church.... and  before I knew it I was pouring out my troubles.  He asked me a few questions about my job, my salary...  if I had any securities or life insurance. I told him I had no  bonds, left, but did have a bit,of insurance X took out when  we got married.    -  Pretty soon ��� to my surprise ��� Baldwin came up with what  seemed like a solution to my immediate problem ���how to  meet my pressing bills. Something I'd never thought of ��� my  15-year old insurance policy had quite a good cash surrender  value, which Baldwin said was first-class security for a personal loan.  "But how am I going to pay off a  loan?" I asked. "We seem to need every  cent I earn just to make , ends meet."  "You can probably do better than that,  I think... if you really want to," said  Baldwin. "But,", ht added, "you've got  to have*: a real- budget-plan to do; it."  Next thing I knew he was telling me how to go about it.  Told toe some things about money management I'd never  thought of before... and he gave me one of the bank's booklets  called "Personal Planning" outlining his ideas in detail.  Next day, Maisie and I pulled out of the doldrums for the  first time in months. Hopefully, we went to the B of M together  and saw Henry Baldwin. Got a $300 Joan fixed up, and right:  then and there opened a joint account.  Boy, that account's been working overtime ever since.. .-  first paying bills with the loan we got, and then getting regular  deposits ��� not just to pay off the loan, but to really save money..  We were mighty relieved to get that bank loan a year ago,,  but I think we're more thankful for  what we learned when we were in a  jam���that we really could save dough  if we made up our minds to it and  got a -really practical budget-plan:  :# working for us.  Personal Planning has given us that  ...and let me tell you that boy's  going to college ��� for sure.  Saving is the only way to move ahead of your worries, and  stay ahead. And'���sometimes ��� borrowing at the Bof M is  the best way to save. Find out how to save despite today's.high  prices. Ask for your copy of "Personal Planning" at your  neighborhood B of M branch. It's yours for the asking.  Bank om Montreal  Gibsons Branch: THOMAS LARSON, Manager.

Red Cross Society  Appeal For Funds  In Annual Drive  In a recent CBC broadcast, the  the Honourable Paul Martin  comended the Canadian Red  Cross Society for its prompt  action in supplying relief supplies for victims of the recent  European floods.  "Canadian aid was in the forefront of foreign aid to those  people who needed, the most  urgent help, through the foresight of: the C an a di an Red  Cross", stated Mr. Martin.  "The Red Cross has worked,  hard to have the" right tilings at  the right place, at'the. right time,  where help was, needed most.  To have an organization of that  type in our nation is; truly a-  credit to C an a da and. every  Canadian. It is . an assuring  thought that if peacetime disaster should strike with all its  fury in any part* bur land���we  have an organization ready,  willing and able to meet the  emercency", he concluded.  The Minister of National Welfare was speaking on behalf of  the annual appeal for funds of  the Canadian Red Cross. The  campaign is now in progress  throughout the nation. .

This Peninsula,  which is  only a pin promt on a map, was  founded by a few pioneer set-,  lers -in -the -1880's -and -began  developing it.  In the early days our forefathers logged, fished, farmed  and built a glue factory at a  point [which is now Gibson's  Landing and Sechelt districts;.  instead of horses feet they used  dog-fish as the raw material.  To earn their living in the  Pender Harbour area they  fished and dug oysters, while  at Port Mellon and surrounding  areas they built a Pulp Mil,  discovered a gravel pit, fished  and  logged.  Many of these industries  have petered out, for instance  the glue factory at Gibson's  Landing, much of the farming  and some of the fishing in most  areas, although the two former  are operating on a small scale.  At present there have been  a few additions such as merchandising in all regions and  tourist trade chiefly at Sechelt,  Selma Park, and Pender Harbour. l  The pulp mill in Port Mellon,  the first one in British Columbia,  the   gravel pit in Hillside'  and the logging centres of Long  View,   Gibson's  Landing,   Roberts   Creek , and   some   lesser  areas on the Sechelt Peninsula  Have  improved;  a   great   deal.  ���A, recent logging   camp ' near  Twin CreekS; iscwell ..underway  with   a   bright   future   ahead.

The future reveals much if  we could only begin such industries as centrajl water power  for electricity and water, improve agriculture, logging,  mills and increase tourist trade.  These must be broadened to  really indicate this Peninsula's  needs and possibilities. First of  all there should be a central  water power system near Gibson's Landing to supply it's near  districts west of Gibson's. A  central system at Port Mellon  to supply Longview and Hillside  with electricity and water; there  should also be one at Pender  Harbour to provide electricity  and water for its^ territory.  Even though thejpe is only approximately a few miles from  the sea shore to the mountains,  there is enough generally flat.  land to have mixed farming. If  we had this on every place possible on the peninsula, we could  probably be exporting berries,  green vegetables, small fruits,  eggs and milk instead o�� importing them. We already have*  several farms, but several i&.iiot  enough.- .     *%���'���'���������/. , *:��  As far as logging goes, it is  pretty W&ll underway, although  there could be Several small saw-.  mills where logging is heaviest  to produce lumber and the left  overs for fuel. We have enough  trees, why not give it a try.  British Columbia is a beautiful province, especially the coast.  Its rugged snow-capped mountains, its gigantic trees and its  sparkling waters, makes it all  in all a perfect tourist locale.

They will, in all probability, limp back to the city on  broken springs.  A portion of the toproad has  been   temporarily   blocked   off,  the road-widening crew working  from both  ends   simultaneiusly,  thus effectively aiding the residents    in    'fasting'    as    grocery  trucks can't get through, neither  can cars get out. The Post Office  Department has not made use of  the pony express, nor dog teams,  therefore there has been no mail  delivery. By the time this goes  to  press,   order  should   be   restored, and in place of piles of  dirt and ma chinery,  a wide  smooth  ribbon  of  road  should  curve  from   cemetary   to   community hall. If drivers would use  it as a road instead  of a race  track it would serve its purpose  better.  In the Hospital department we  ihear that Harold Kennedy is  ���doing well after an operation in  Shaughnessy. Mrs. C. Bourne has  removed to St. Mary's Hospital  and is resting comfortably, Jack  Laidlaw is in Hospital in Vancouver. *;  The Eastern Star entertained  Saturday at the Masonic Hall  when their guests were the  Masons and 32 girls from Vancouver, members of Job's Daughters. Many of the local girls were  invited to see the group invest  a degree upon one of their members.  The officers of the group, looking very sweet and dignified in  pastel evening gowns, moved  smoothly through the ritual,  after which the group entertained their hostesses and guests  with a very hilarious skit, some  Highland dancing, and exceedingly fine elocution, singing and  piano playing.  L.Sn Jacks��si  011C  Exceeding the speed limit cost  John Blinn Clark of Grand  Forks, B.C. $20.00 and costs  when he appeared before Magistrate A. Johnston at Sechelt.  Stanley Joe of Sechelt was  fined $25.00 and costs for failing  to return an Income Tax Return  for 1951.  Percy   Homules  r*-P  Gibsons,  Mr. <A1' Jackson, of Wilson  Creek is reported to be resting  more easily, following a sudden  heart attack, on Tuesday last. He  was taken ill suddenly, and was  'attended at once by Dr. Inglis  of Gibsons.  Mrs. Jackson says he is expected to be confined to bed for  some weeks. Friends from the  whole area join in wishing him  a speedy and complete return  to health.  charged with having liquor on  an Indian Reserve, told Magistrate Johnston that he had no  idea that the car in. which he  was riding was going to call at  the Reserve. However he did get  out of the car with his friends  on the Reserve when the Police  appeared and confiscated the  beer. Homules paid a fine of  $20,00 and the beer was forfeited  to the Crown.  Charged with driving while  his ability to drive was impaired  by alcohol, Howard Oness endeavoured to explain that his staggering at the time he was  checked by the police was due  to an injures ankle and not to  his imbibing too freely. The  story did not impress the Magistrate and Oness was fined  $50.00 and costs.  Edward Johnston of Gibsons  pleaded guilty of exceeding the  speed limit and was fined $25.00  and costs.  Hubert   Lowther / of   Gibsons  was  fined   $25.00   and   entered  k into    a    $500.00    Recognizance  when found guilty of failing to  maintain his family properly.

Failing to procure a contractors licence while  operating as  a  contractor   in  Gibsons  Muni--  ^cipality, Howard Oness was fined  $5.00 and costs when he promised to obtain the required  licence forthwith. ,  , Breaking a car window brought  John Cattanach a fine of $5.00  and $14.00 damages to owner of  the car involved.  1201  i  n  ci  ��f  For Half Moon Bay  Initial steps were taken last  week by interested Redrooffs  property owners to establish the  '"Redrooffs Beach and Country  Club."  A lot has been purchased and  clearing and grading for a tennis  court will be one of their.first  efforts.  They plan to promote a Regatta this summer. The pro-tem  president is H.J.

We will be looking  forward to hearing more from  this enterprising group.  mmn wmm  It was suggested that rather  than being used, as soil, or top-  soil, this material might well  be used purely as a fertilizer,  and that as such, were it run  through a crusher, it could  readily be bagged and sold just  as it is.  A report from the. Senior Ped-  ologist of the Department of  Agriculture Experimental Farms  Service has been received by Mr,  N. Warm, who is doing professional landscaping in Sechelt.  The sample of soil sent in for  analysis was from the black soil  presently being excavated from  the. Indian Village.
