The Queen will be crowned in  Westminster Abbey, surrounded  by honoured guests from all the  world,  decked in finery  made  famous   through   the   ages   because of its significance  as  a  part of the ritual. The Crown,  the Orb, the Sceptre, the Sword  and the Spurs,, the Ampulla arid  , the Annointing Spoon, and all  'the many items of. Church and,  :��� State 'significance*-will he used^  in their time-honoured roles.  Why should we, the people  of a great;, growing nation, be  so concerned .with the coronation of a reigning sovereign of  a  tiny   inland  group  half  way  around the world?"  We, citizens of;: an honoured  member of the greatest: Commonwealth of Nations, also  claim Elizabeth as Queen. Because of this great partnership,  founded by, and for so long  governed from and ordered by  Britain, we are part of a great  fellowship -of peoples. These  nations, adhering voluntairily to  the ideas and' Meal of the commonwealth, have acknowledged  Britain's Sovereign as their own, ,  p continuing symbol of their  ���unity.      \     .     ^ ,     , , ,���:  ''^We-cla-m' this charmingvyoung  woman, this gay young wife,  this serious young Sovereign as  our own. As we proclaim with  our voices, we pray from our  hearts, "Queen Elizabeth is  crowned,,' long live the Queen!"  After hearing soy many conflicting reports ijroBi Election  Candidates and private citizens  over the past few ^fdays, and  answering phone calls of inquiry  regarding the matter of, surfacing of the highway between  Gibsons and Sechelt, "Coast  News" decided it was time definite information was available  to the people of the district.  "Coast   News"   sent  the   following telegram, dated Gibsons,  May 26/53:  Chief Engineer,"  Highways Branch,      >  Department of Pubic^Works,  Victoria.       - "[  What information, is available  re: blacktopping on Sechelt  Highway this year?

He. explained the C C F.  position on a number of impor-  tant matters,,   such y as  Hospital  Insurance,   Workmens  Compen-  ;  sation, Liquor, etc.  In  reply  to   questions   from  the   audience, .he   stated   that  , both he and Mrs. Nancy Hodges,  of Victoria, had tried to have the  Government  institute <a  more  adequate system of grants to  branches of the VON hi view  of the valuable work that organization was doing in giving  home nursing care, thus relieving the burden on the hospitals.  They had met with rib success  in; this,./but promised that the  effort: would, not be relaxed.  .Another questioner asked if  the Hon. Ericiytartin had legal  power to. waive payment of 'arrears in'hospital insurance, or  to vary: the premiums that had  been established by Legislature.  My. Gargrave replied that it  seemed doubtful if such action  was legal,... but after all the  question was academic, and the  Government was the party who  woud ^normally /take proceedings to question the legality,  and they were the party who  adopted the questionable procedure, and would not be likely to  proceed against their own actions.        :���.'... Vs  Replying, to, a query on the  Boukhobor problem, Mr.  Gargrave reminded the audience  that this was of longrstahding  and was not of easy solution.  !���"��� ^Si^-tS^^^^-mt: master  of ceremonies for the evening  of May 19th, when a Banquet  was held for the Bowlers, in  the Legion Hall, Gibsons.  There were eighty-six members present to sit down to a  turkey supped.  M. C. ��� Jimmy presented the  (trophies and prizes to the winning team, the Co-Op Store,  Captain Don Malmas, Jean  Wilson, Jim Haining, Ben  Haining and Frank Crowhurst.  The runner nip for this trophy  was the Midway's team, Captain,  Ed. Connor, Molly Connor,  |5ylvia D'aoust, Mervin Fladager  and Doug Davies.

Winners of the Team High  Three were the Danaloji's, with  3029, and the Team, High single;  was  Dawsons Taxi,  with   1015.  Everyone enjoyed the evening, and the awarding of the  prizes. A dance concluded the  program.  However, the C. C. F. position  was that the Doukhobors should  be given every right anoTprivel- .  ege enjoyed by other Canadians,  but should not be excused from  any of the responsibilities of  other Canadians. Any infraction  of laws should be punished just  as would be the case for any  other citiden.  cussei  At the regular meeting of the Gibsons Board of Trade on  Monday evening, many topics came up for discussion-, but owing  to their very nature, there was little that could be finally settled.  One thing however, upon which they were definite, was the  approval of the resolution which had been previously presented  to the Executive by Mr. Simm, The President of the Canadian  Chamber of Commerce. This was that the Chamber should study  and find means of preventing "Sectionalism" in Canada.  . . "        Locke Knowles reported upon "  the progress Of the work oh the -  Bronze   Placque    of   R obert-  Telford.  It is  well under way, r  and should shortly be completed.

Mr. Perdue reviewed \vhat  the Government has done, and    sed, as were ways and means  proposes to do, assuring the  listeners that the Social Credit  Party supported a free democratic way of life, honest administration and efficient operation.

A new idea Of a time-perio<d '  for the Fish Derby was presented and discussed, but nothing  definite done, due to the absence of the Chairman of their  committee, Mr. Cliff Gray.  A discussion was led by John?.

There- was some further talk  of the Carnival Picnic to Pender  Harbour for some date in June,/  but  nothing  definite  was  decided. .,  First Ball Game  On New Park Site  Gibsons To Have  New Tennis Court  If anyone noticed long trains  of labouring men, bearing heavy  bags of cement on thej^r  shoulders, winding down the  stairway, it wasn't a new pyramid a-building, it was the crew  of volunteers carrying bags of  4 cement for the new Tennis  Court at the Kinsmen's Park  in Gibsons;  .The first.section of this court  was poured on Monday morning,  and the whole Court will shortly  be completed/This should be a  boon to the. local raquette enthusiasts. Nothing like a good  fast court to bring the players  out.

I can readily  understand that the "Vancouver  Sun" would be reluctant to  print that letter: Dave's long  association with movements  aimed to improve the lot of the  Workingman has taught him a,  lot of facts of history; these facts  are often unpleasant, and are  "Hush-Hush" among the better  people, such as the big adver-  tizers.  However? while Mr. Rees is  consistently correct in statement  of fact, I wonder if perhaps some  deductions might not bedrawn  differing slightly from his conclusions. It is true that the CCF  believe that under complete  socialism the lot of the people  who do the actual work of the  country would be much improved. It is true that the other  three   parties   claim   (some,  of  I__et us give you a look over our shoulder:  -Work on Floats, Dams.Clearing of Canoe^Pass to start  Immediately." reads a headline.

Of course, it is true that pressure  from the more progressive elements, and the wish to get votes  from these elements, forced the  Liberal hand. But after all, that  is the working of democracy,  often not very savory, but the  best evolved so far by the freedom-loving peoples of the world.

The winning  pitcher was starter John Marsh  end Don Caldwell was charged  with the loss. Gibsons jumped  into the lead at the beginning  of the game and never lost it.  In the other, games played on  the 17th the defending champs  the Fumblers out-slugged the  Braves 18-14.  The game between Selma  Park and the Sechelt Firemen  that was to officially open, the  league on the 18th was cancelled with everything else because  of the rain.  On 'the 19th the Bluebacks  make it two wins in a row by  defeating the FUmblers and  Wally Smith 11-5. Again Gibsons entry lead all the way.  Denny Tyson went' all the way  for his first win of the season  and speed ball Wally Smith  suffered his first set back.  Selma Park made their first.  game a winning one as they  nipped . Wilson Creek 6-5. In.  other Thursday night games the  Sechelt Firemen ��� nipped the  Braves.

The House C senior girls  won their game with House A  by  default.   House  A  failed to  find  a   team.   House   B, junior  boys and House C finished their  game in a 6-6 tie. In the junior.  girls league House  B defeated  House C bv a score of 18-12.  ee It  by Eric Lindwall  The School is thinking of  having another wonderful  "beach party." Ah yes, I well  remember the last beach party  we had and: I have a few suggestions gathered around the  school toward making the next  party a little bit more successful.  1. Arrange with the weatherman at Sea Island for a nice  warm evening with darkness  resal early, (the fires are so romantic) - ��� I can remember the  rain last year dampend the  spirits and also watered the  coffee, (which was an improvement), sogged the hotdogs and  contributed to the general confusion of the evening.  2. By bribery or mass execution, quell the insect life  which usually outnumbers the  members of the party about ten  to one. Also, their appetites for  human blood and their habits  of committing suicide in the  coff ee; usually quells any  optimistic attempts to hog the  "food" off the tables.  3. Also by bribery or mass  execution, (preferably the latter  solution), encourage the hordes  of juniors to go to the show,  or go to . . . . (oops)! OHow can  we wish anyone isuch misfortune?)  4. Pick   a   nice   location! tfor  the party: with piles of wood  already located conveniently  near a place for a fire; soft logs  at a proper distance from 'the  fire (which never gets too hot);  a good sandy beach where there  is no such thing as high tides,  and above all, warm water for  swimming.  5. Of course, there is the food  too. As well as a liberal sprinkling of sand flies, wood bugs  and dead mosquitoes, the hot-  dogs are usually cold, half-done  objects stuffed in crisp, (and I  mean crisp), weiner buns. And  the liquid we are supposed to  drink resembles something quite  unedible. Perhaps we could have  a catering service, (and I don't  mean the enthusiastic but rather  smash-and-grab antics of our  Home Ec. girls.)  6. Perhaps the best suggestion  yet is, ((How about having just  an ordinary party ?" I don't  know, but it sure is a tempting  idea,  isn't it?     , '  Try The Coast News Classified  W- McFadden,, D.O.

SECOND HAND STORE  VETERANS'   ALLOWANCE  Editor, The Coast News,  Sir: ���  Recently there was quite an  article in the Vancouver Press  stating that Members of Parliament of all parties had requested an increase in the  amount paid to Veterans on War  Veteran's Allowance. At the  next sitting the Minister of  Veterans' Affairs promptly put  an end to that idea by saying  "nothing doing". . Apparently  Minister is quite satisfied with  conditions as they are and as he  as definitely speaking for the  present Government it is perfectly obvious the various Ministers of the Crown must, in  the majority, be in agreement  with him.  Gould-it be possible that Vet-  terans tn   some   Provinces1  are  getting^ a better deal than those  in others?
