Hon. Prime Minister is an Uncle  of Sidney Arthur Holland of the  Cannery Road * at Gibsons. In  fact, says Sid, he was named  iafter his uncle.  R Watts Goes to USA  Mr. G. R. Watts, for the past  year Principal of the Gibsons  Elementary school will leave at  the .end ;of the term. He will  go to Portland, Ore., where he  intends to teach and to study  further in Education and Educational Methods. ������������  Mrs. Watts and the children  will move down in July.  anel Discussion  on Education  Those present at the. Thursday  June 11th,' meeting of the Sechelt Peninsula P.T.A. enjoyed  a most interesting evening. The  panel discussion was lively and  brought out several points of  interest. '-"V..  After the business session,  Mrs. E. Wallis, president, introduced the Panel members. Their  subject was "Are we Jetting the  Education we want for our  children at the High school  level?" ������'���-'���  Mrs! B.R. Tupper, . Editor of  the "British Columbia Parent  Teacher" came out from Vancouver to act as Panel Chairman. Other members ywere Mrs.  B. Rankiri, representing the  teachers, J. Marsh, representing  Parents,Edna Morrison for the  students of Gr. XII, and T.A.B.  Larson  for  Business...  Different viewpoints w e re  presented forcefully;.; and well,  and questions answered by the  panel members.  Referring to questions asked  regarding the Teachers' efforts,  Mrs. Rankiri answered that the  Teaching staff seemed to be making a large effort to keep the  students 'Happy5. To the question as to whether or hot this  was the ultimate ;airn of man,  there- was, n^^adee^iyey reply.  , Mr. Marsh claimedlthat there  was  not   enojighY yi^iis-ipline  in  ;:; the/' schooisS^fan^^K^'efe:: wasr  a lack of grounding^ in'the required fun da rn e-n't'a 1 s,  once  known as the three R's.    V  Mr. Zacharias answered for  the Elementary schools, explaining the change in system, and  the ommission of the formerly  stressed mechanics  of learning.  Mr. Larson, in speaking for  business, commented that he  had found a lack of fundamental  knowledge, not in this area a-  lone, but elsewhere in the Province.  Miss Edna Morrison, speaking  for the senior stundents, thought  that the students were not getting all they hoped for from  the curriculum. She also stated  that for the average student,  she thought too - much was expected academically, whereas  the courses were good for those  of greater intellectual capacity.  Mrs. Tupper by comment and  question, kept the discussion together both in the panel and  from the floor. In her summing  up, she felt that the meeting had  been well worth while, but in-*  decisive as to conclusions. She  hoped there might be further  discussions at a later meeting,  where it was hoped, there would  be a larger attendance, and the  comments from the floor more  general.  During the business session,  reports were heard froin. the  Talent Night Committee, the U.  B.C. Play committee, and reference made as to the situation  regarding Dental services. The  serving of refreshments brought  a well-worth-while evening to  a close. \.  The school board reports that  Mr. Watts has been excellent as  a principal and a teacher, and  that his going will mean a loss  to the teaching staff.  He has, meantime, agreed to  write occasionally, and compare  notes on conditions to the south  of the line.  Johnston Twins At Kingston  ARMY TWINS WITH SIGNALS��� The Sergeant Major a the  School of Signals at Kingston, Ont., has another problem these days  trying to figure out who is who when he is confronted with the  Johnston twins shown above at work during their wireless operator's course.  Tthe twins are identical even  to the. freckles on their faces  and are the sons of Mr. A.  Johnston, Police Magistrate at  Sechelt, B.C. The 17 year old  boys are in the Army under the  Soldier Apprentice Plan. Oh yes,  that is f Roger on the left and  Ronald at the right.  The boys expect to be home  about the end of the month for  - thi^-thir^ leave.  They have been.'busy with ex-'  ams, and report good results.

This will give the Black  Ball Lines the site they need  for their operations, and will  still leave the remaining Boat  Rental business in an excellent  location, with room for "expansion, and freedom from any  danger, real or otherwise, from  the docking and departing ferry  boats.  Pa  V.  f-a  Sim  epresentative  Finds Peninsula Popular  Mr. Lloyd Johnston, of Vancouver, has been busy touring  the Peninsula this ^ pas* week,  and finds that many of the motorists and others are extremely  interested in the B.C.A.A.  He is conducting a membership drive, and has had excellent response from those he has  met. _���,_.'&.  Outside interest in- the Peninsula, both as a holiday spot  and as a residential area is really  growing, he reports, and he  thinks that there is nothing that  can hold the growth of the area,  as it becomes more publicized.  yit is just becoming known  'that such an area exists, so close  to the city, and with such good  transportation facilities, according to Mr. Johnston. He feels  that there will definitely fefe an.  upswing in both permanent and  holiday population soon. 2  The Coast New?

The Graduation Ceremonies at the Elphinstone High  school last week came as the annual surprise, a form they  seem to have assumed over the past few decades. Not that'  we are, surprised that situdents graduate. We've grown forward  to that. Simply that each year the time has rolled around so  fast it's difficut to realise that here is the neb result of an-  ' other year's work on the part of the Situdents, the teachers,  x the School Board, the Government, and last, but far from  least, the Taxpayer. The parents, of course, we have rather  taken for granted, which is a sad thing.  These young men and women (still boys and girls to us) are  presumably now all set to 'Go Out into the Word* with adult  outlook, ability, work and opportunity, to say nothing of responsibility. Responsibility they must now assume, for themselves, their behaviour,.and in so many instances their financial well-being.  The erstwhile Student will now become an employable  member of .society. Is he or she ready for this stage of growth ?  Many of the students, to occupy a niche in their chosen voc-  aition, will require still further training, in commercial schools, universities, hospitals, technical schools, or apprentices at  their chosen trades. Whatever line of endeavor they are bent  upon following, may we urge them to take this next step carefully, getting as much from the training as they can, as well  as from the world around as is possible for them to absorb?  Life, and the assurance of the wherewithal to live it, is becoming more and more complex, more specialized, with each  passing year.  For those who are stepping (they hope) inito direct employment, we would like to offer one word;. When you are  looking for the amount of salary you, will draw, the social  security offered, the pension plans, the holidays with pay, and  other advantages that seem to go with work in these times,  remember that-your employer is looking for something more  than just a bright young man or woman to occupy a place on  his pay roll. - ,  He is looking for results from all this education, this  training, 'these vaunted superior advantages conferred upon  the student of today by the improved system of today's education. He is looking for intelligence,. skill, ability to learn,  ability to adjust ito ,new circumstances and surroundings, a  sense of honesty, responsibility and loyalty. He is looking for  energy, sincerity and ability to apply oneself to the work at  hand.  In other words, the employer is looking for someone whom  he feels he can employ, and having employed, can trust and  rely upon in that employment.  Have you what it takes?

PORT MELLON ROAD  Editor, The Coast News,  Sir: ���    .  The Trans-Canada Highway to  Port Mellon will now be opened  in 1954. Making a perfunctory  trip into that region on Friday  June 5th, one is immediately  struck by the solemn stillness  that holds that gargantuan gorge  in its embrace. Of course, this  was in the middle of the .morning, and the nearest coffee bars  are at Gibsons, where we actually saw most of the intermediate  brass.  We were concerned, however,  with four stalwarts who were  playing mumbly-peg in the  center of the grade. I had pre-  Gibsons Vers  Speaking Choir  ,Early this year, the Gibsons  Elementary School entered a  Verse-Speaking Choir in the  Speech Arts and Drama Festival,  the first Public school to enter  such a choir.  Mr. Van Perry, the adjudicator,, made the following crit-,  icism of the presentation of two  poems "Words" by Nancy Lynch,  and the "lloy Band" by Sir  Henry Newbolt:  "A, fine idea of contrasting  styles, moods and colors, between the two poems.  "Words was the most sensitive in its interpretation, handled gently, and with love. You  brought to us a real understanding of the important thing -  the fact that beauty lies in words  and can be called to mind when  the beautiful experience itself  is beyond our reach - and that  tthis great quality gives words  themselves an almost holy love-  linesn of their own.  In -the'- "Toy Band", you gave  us' the "weary feeling of defeat  at first, and ydu gave us the  rattling smartness of the drum  to follow. You did quicken our  pulses with it.  I felt that you might have  given a sharper sound to the  fife, which is a shrill exciting  instrument. And I also thought  that we needed a more challenging attack on phrases like  "you that mean to 'fight it out".  The voices have been very  well blended, and their mutual  sympathy <of approach makes  (the attack very well unified.  We need some attention to the  shape of words, and to consonants. Neyer give the words a  chance to run together.  When you are phrasing, make  sure you complete a phrase before you pause very much, or  you can become rather (singsong. You escaped that, but it  did threaten once or twice."  Farewell Tea For  Mrs. Leitfi  Friends and neighbours of  Murdoch's Point gathered at the  home of Mrs. Doug- Parkes on  Wednesday afternoon, June 9th  to say 'Goodbye' to Grace, Mrs.  Robert Leith, who left on the  following Friday for Anahim  Lake in the Caribou Country,  with her husband and daughters. ������> .  A delightful tea was served  by Mrs. Parkes and her co-host-  es, Mrs. Phillips and Mrs. Murdoch. For the table center there  was a lovely iced cake decorated  and bearing the words "Good  Luck".  After the tea, the hostess presented Mrs. Leith with a beautiful rose, corsage, and a hand  embroidered tea cloth, as a  token of love and good wishes  from all the guests, who wished  her good luck and who will miss  her very much.  sumed the survey was finished,  but this shows that this is not  so.  The broken* down machines  that littered the terrain we're  mute evidence of this debacle  has developed into a supuration  that apparently has no end. We  have heard that the bill will be  more in the neighborhood of  $800,000, and the end is not yet.  It is sincerely hoped that our  new member, whoever he may  be, will make some effort at  least to find out if the Dept. of  Public 'Works specified the  $12,000 sidewalk on the bridge.  This is about what it cost, rdiv-  dded piece  by  piece   into   the  overall rost.  "Old Timer".

At present, Mr.  Flay and his family are busy  putting cabins, paths and beach  into shape.

John C. Ralston of West Sechelt was interdicted and fined  S10.00 and costs for common  asasult, and bound over to hold  the peace for three months.

Three 17 year old youths  were fined $20.00 and costs eadh  for joy-riding in equipment belonging to Marwell Construction  Company.

Norman Leroy Peterson, Ronald Godfrey and Edward Par-  nell were fined $5.00 and costs  each and paid damage to the  amount of $5.00 to School Board  of District 46 for causing wilful damage to school property.  by Madge Newman  At the' regular meetng of the  Hall Board Executive, at the  home of Mr. and Mrs. Bob Cum-  mings, Mrs. R. Hughes was presented with a corsage by Mrs.  D Mathews and a beautiful pearl  necklace, a token of regard for  the work done by that estimable lady during six consecutive  years as President of the Hall  Board. Mr. Fred Barnes, President of the Board, in an address  to Mrs. Hughes,lauded the accomplishments of the Board  under her able direction, and  tendered grateful thanks on behalf of that, body for her service to the Hall and the community wliic-i it serves.  When there is work to be  done, Mrs. Hughes will always  be found in there 'pitching'. No  job is ever too big for her to  tackle, no day or night too long.  Fortunate indeed are the various organizations who claim  her for one of their valuable  supporters.  On the 20th of June, the Hall  Boa)rd is putting on. a dance  and* who should be playing for  it but Walt Oliver and his orchestra. Many residents and summer visitors will know Walt  from away back when, when he  was a regular summer visitor  to the family summer home on  Beach Avenue. His orchestra is  well known in Vancouver but  has never played in this district.  The little gremlins that got  into this column last week and  l'e-arranged it so quaintly, bring  to mind a pretty picture of the  local High school graduates rush  ing into V.G.H. with the Fall  class of probationers.

We were hoping that Mrs. H.  Chaster' and Mrs. H. King would  v jointly describe their Vancouver  invesigations of CNIB activities  before.. a    public    meeting.

The tables were most attractively decorated with golden  crowns, bowls of red, white and  blue flowers, and tiny flags.   .  All present enjoyed a,splendid program consisting y;of a  piano solo by Mrs. Braden, a  solo, 'Elizabeth of England' by  Mrs. Vernon, and a quartet, Mrs.  Ritchey, Mrs. Atlee, Mrs. Mainil  and  Mrs.   Elander.

More people were seen helping more people on election day  than we generally observe, except  iri times of national1 crises; Perhaps that was one?  From F. W.

CEMENT TENNIS COURT.  The Tennis Court on the Kinsmen's Park is being made entirely by volunteer labour, and  is really progressing well. That's  a lot of carrying, mixing and  pouring, and it is hoped that  those who have laboured on this  project so nobly don't become  too stiff and sore to enjoy the  court when it is ready. Should  make for a right fast game.  m  m&  ft NEW.EASIER  Starting July 1st, 1953, a new plan for the payment of KC. Hospital  Insurance premiums will go into effect. It's a plan that makes it easier  for you to enjoy the full benefits and: protection of B.C. Hospital  Insurance. All arrears have been suspended���and under the new plan  will not accumulate. In addition, all persons who pay their premiun-^  regularly will automatically build up an "insured benefits" perio  This period will assure you protection should you be unable to p;v  a premium because of temporary financial difficulties, seasonal lay-off  or unemployment. Here is exactly how the plan works:  _��  INSURED   BENEFITS  II  By paying your premiums regularly, whether  by direct ^payment or payroll deduction, you  will become eligible for '."insured benefits." One  month of."insured benefits'* will be built up  at the end of each fully-paid six-month period.  This will continue to build up, providing all  premiums are paid regularly, until a maximum  of three months' "insured benefits" has been  attained after eighteen months of continuous  payment. This means that if you cannot pay  a premium by a due date and you have from  one month to three months of "insured  benefits"���B.C. Hospital Insurance will pay  the hospital bill should you or any of y6ur  dependents go to hospital during this period.  If you pay your full premium during your  "insured benefits" period, you will foe fully  covered by Hospital Insurance without any  wafting period. However,/if you pay. your  premium after your "insured benefits" period  has elapsed^ you will be subject to a waiting  period before being fully eligible for benefits.  The first "insured benefits" period will be  available January, 1954, for all persons who  haye paid their premium due June 30th, 1953.  If You Pay By Direct Payment...  If you pay your premium by direct payment,  you make payment twice a year:���on. June 30th,  to cover the period from July 1st to December  31st and on December 31st to cover the period  from January 1st to June 30th. Each* six-month  period is separate; There will be no arrears.  If you cannot pay on time, you will not be  eligible for Hospital Insurance until fourteen  days after you pay, unless you have "insured  benefits." It should be noted that "insured  benefits" do not constitute exemption from full  premium payment. If you have not paid  premiums for the previous six months (e.g.  January 1st to June 30th, 1953), ybts will be  subject to a one month waiting period.  This, one month^ waiting period is necessary  to prevent people from paying premiums and  receiving benefits only when they know they  are going to hospital. ^  If You Pay Through Payroll Deduction..  If you make payment through payroll deduction,  your deduction will be made one month in  advance (instead of six months as before.) Each  deduction provides Hospital Insurance coverage  for the. following month. Persons who are now  prepaid six months in advance will retain this  additional protection, as there will not be any  refunds, but persons coming on payroll deduction from now on, are not required to pay  six months in advance. "Insured benefits"  will be built up through regular premium  payments.  YOUR NEXT PREMIUM IS DUE JUNE 30th  Please make sure you return the billing notice with your premium payment.  P  W&  Pender  Harbour  By SARAL  At a well received' talk the?  Sunday before the election, Mr.  Batt Maclntyre discussed ttie  problem of 'Canoe Pass' witU  members of the audience. This  problem is one of much coa-  cern to residents of the area.      v  Mr.. Maclntyre suggested that  bridging of the pass would be  the best solution, and that he  would take the matter up with,  the Hon. James Sinclair, In addition to providing ready access to the properties of the  residents, there are three sawmills on the south side of the  pass.  Possibility of B. C. P>ower  becoming available seemed to  depend on the completion of  clearing of the Halfmoon Bay  cut-off, for which Mr. Maclntyre  had worked.
