'  (Vernon   Black   Unable   to   res>  cue  Pal)  Children playing at the Roberts Creek Wharf on Saturday  evening last were the only immediate witnesses to a tragic  accident, when eleven year old  Joe Fortt, son of Mr. and Mrs.  William Fortt, fell from the  wharf and "was  drowned.  The boys had been riding  their bicycles around the freight  shed at the end of the wharf,  when evidently Joe lost his  balance, and went over the  side.  Vernon Black, one of the boys  in the group, went in after Joe,  but with the tide; running strongly, hej was unable to reach  his chum. He had finally to -  give up, exhausted.  The R.C.M.P. and friends and  neighbors   (were  out   in   boats,  have not been able to\ recover  ..the body.  Joe is one of seven children  of Mr. and Mrs. fortt.

They were able to see the  first four form up, and moments  later see them joined by four  others from across Georgia  $traits. _The morning was clear  enough that these planes vtere  visible for miles, and the watchers marvelled at their precision of flight manoeuveres, before going in for the attack.  Mrs. Stan Fallows gave a very  graphic description of this  part of the operation. No sounds  could be heard of following  activities, however.

Children will be children. Adults will ^  be unwatchful until tragedy forces their hand. These  are q       J.'f    T) -Ul  trite, old, almost worn-out comments, but as true today, as Kg^Qgr 5    Klyill  when first uttered.  \  This week, we have regretfully reported the drowning of  young Joe Fort, who fell from the wharf at Roberts Creek.  This wharf, called many names by many people, including  that of an 'experiment' in construction, has stood unused as  a wharf for many months. It has also been ah enticing playground for children, and therefor a potential death trap for  them.  What better place than a smooth, planked area for the  young lad on a bicycle? What more dangerous place than  this, without even a railing, with a tide tthat can race strongly  enough to remove rocks of a ton's weight from their places?  Can something not be done to either prevent children from  going onto this unused wharf, or to provide some measure  of safety,; such as aguard rail (or even steps for the return  of the unfortunajbe from the sea),  to avoid this criminal  waste of life ?  It's only a few short weeks since we had to report a similar accident at Sechelt, which fortunately ended more happily. There the boy could swim, itihe.tide was not so strong,  and there were means of climbing back to the dock planking.  This whole Coast is strung with little and larger wharves,  docks and jetties. They are a'natural part of Coastal living.  Children, bicycles and danger are equally parts of life almost  anywhere. In most areas, however, there are some means of  safeguarding these same children from the most obvious dangers. Can something not be done about Ithese tempting but  dangerous wharfs, particularly. when they are unused, and  therefore unoccupied by the normal adult population?  It might well be worth while to write the local member  of Parliament with some suggestions on this. Wharves and  Docks were once said to lie quite close to his heart. Perhaps  safety of children does,/too.  One Worker's Opinion  We learned with just one more sigh of relief that the  Fisherman's Strike was over. To us. of course, any strike  which threatens the ultimate slfcrength of a nation, whether it  be in Food Production, National Transportation, or Production of goods for 'World Trade, or National Communications,  are weapons which should be declared illegal.  In this day and age, when almost any question (other  than that of Korea, of course) can be settled by arbitration  and/or negotiation, the strike, as a means of-acheiving an  end is on a par with kidnapping or the use of a spiked bludgeon. ���     .       . .        '  There seems to be such a discrepancy between the expressed opinions of individual workers in any group where strike  action is being discussed, and the ultimate, reports of the  percentage of votes in favor of sitrike action, .that we are led  to doubt either the number of workers who say "No, I don't  want to strike.", or the reports that quote such an overwhelming majority voted in favor of strike'action.  We are led to wonder just whose weapon is the strike,  and for just what end is it being so widely and (to us) so  unreasoningly employed? Knowledge may be what we lack.  We are so willing to learn that we welcome genuine information from any source.  Editor, The Coast News,   /  Sir: ���  To   Our  Friends, of   This   Joint  Area.  My wife, and I feel deeply  indebted to the people around  us. It has been said, "A friend  in need is a friend indeed"  This mans family has been extended a friendship by you all.,  too great to express here in  words. Your sympathy is deeply  appreciated at this time of our  great loss and sorrow. I trust  you will allow me to use this  means of expressing our gratitude to you one and all.  Your joint efforts in trying  to find the remains . of our  Joseph has been untiring, and  I wish to make it known to  you all that I feel, you have  gone beyond y pur.. expectations*  in your task. Thank you.  I also want it known here  that Joe's little friend Vernon  Black has a very warm place  in our hearts here for what he  so unselfishly did. I am thankful to you Vern, and I am glad  you did not lose your life in  your attempt, which you might  easily, have done.  There are many others I  would like! to mention here,  but lets not elaborate  on this.  I want nerve to say that there.  has been many others that have  come close to this same tragedy  through bicycles playing on  these wlKaryes. Must we continue to leave danger spots go  unprotected, and see our loyed  ones go down to unefeded and  horrible death. I feel I must  stress he^re that 'the price \is  more than, any of us will want  to pay. I am sure we have need  of looking into the situation,  here and correcting these very  obvious  mistakes-.  Please accept my gratitude  again and if I can be of service in any effort made in the  prevention of any future accidents I will be here.  We  are   grateful to  you   all,  Mr.  and Mrs.  W, G.

Editor, The Coast News,  Sir: ���  Re: Gambier Island School  In your issue of June 11th,  1953, the report of th; monthly  school board meeting indicated  that plans for a school on Gambier have been postponed once  more, and inferred that this  postponement was due to a  statement purported to have  been made by myself at the  school board meeting, viz: VRflx-  Fahrni the representative from  Gambier reported the; delay on  the- construction of Andys Bay  road" and "Mr. Fahrni reports  that there is little hope of completion of the road in question  this year."      ,  Now with no reflection whatever on members of th board  or on your reporting staff, I  should like to clarify this situation for the benefit of your  readers. For the information of  the Board I did in "fact express  an opinion regarding the completion of the Andys Bay road,  based on conversations with  the District. Engineer, but I  most certainly am not in a position to make an. official statement as was* indicated in your  write up, as my elected post  as school board representative  has no connection with matters!  of Public works on the Island.  I might say that to my knowledge, local crews are still at  work  on  the project.  It should perhaps be pointed  out that Gambier has sufficient  school age population  to  war  rant a school, but unfortunately  lack of roads on the island make  transportation a problem which  apparently can not for the time  being be surmounted. It is indeed a deplorable" situation  when one considers that in  spite of the "high amount that  flows into the tax coffers from  island, not even sufficient can  be allocated to complete present roads, let alone consider  construction of necessary new  ones.   _  '. Until we have- roads, it is  improbable we will have a  school; and until we have that  school the children on Gambier  are not getting a square deal.  Gerald Fahrni,  Centre Bay.  Ed's Note: It is regrettable  that the impression created by  tjhe repojrt referred to above  was that due to Mr. Fahrni making certain reports, the school  would be delayed. We are sure  that the School Board is basing  its actions upon knowledge of  existing facts. That Mr. Fahrni  had the onerous duty of making the report simply confirmed  . this knowledge, . .. .  W.

Elphinstone  Chapter no. 65 who attended  .the Eastern Star Convention  June 14-17. Joining the party  from Roberts Creek were Mrs.  A. Anderson, Mrs. E. J. Shaw,  Mm R. Cummings and 'Mfcs.  J.T. Newman. Strictly off the  record, there was more to this  trip than the enbyment of the  impressive sessions of the convention, which was held in the  Georgia Auditorium. Midnight  sessions of another species in  the Ritz ' were also enjoyed.  Sore tired feet were much in  evidence and the elevator boys,  it is hoped, became accustomed  to the sight of weary women  toddling.from floor to floor and  suite to suite carrying their  shoes in their hands.  One of the hazards of. visiting in each other's rooms was  the key situation. Invariably  these little gadgets, stamped  with code numbers totally un:  decipherable to the layman,  became hopelessly jumbled and  resulted in much running back  and forth through the halls  while the ladies tried the various doors with the entire collection of keys.  One fact of interest that was  learned at the convention was  that, of all the Provinces and  States on the continent, comprising a membership' of over  2V_ million, British Columbia  leads in the work of Order-  Cancer dressing stations and  raising money for Cancer Research. In this great work, the  Elph|toistone Chapter plays its .  part.    ���    /  The Roberts Creek Improvement Association held its business ;. .meeting in ^the -Legion  Hall June 11.

Maybe it's to pay for goods ordered from an out-  of-town firm. Or perhaps it^s to celebrate the birthday of a close  relative. Whatever the reason, a Bank of Montreal Money Order  is the safe, sure way to get your money to its destination without  delay and without cost to the recipient.  5 of M Money Orders can be purchased for sums up to one  hundred dollars.
