'  E  Accomplishments At Gibsons  The Social Credit candidate for Mackenzie Riding addressed a  meeting in the Legion Hall at Gibsons on Tuesday, May 12 th.  Approximately one hundred people made up a very courteous audience, refraining from heckling or in tempting the speaker until the  question period.  The meeting was opened with  the singing of the National  anthem, a hymn and a moment  of prayer.  The Chairman, Mr. Macafee,  introduced the speaker briefly.  In opening Mr. Perdue mentioned press clippings and attacks  in showing what the Social  Credit^party was. not, and stated  that it was simply an attempt by  the people to have good government. He had no critiscism of  opposing candidates to make,  and intended to keep his campaign above such things.  Mr.   Perdue   read   from   the  pamphlet  of  tlie  Social  Credit  Party, to illustrate the aims and'  intentions of the Party.  He also stated that, having  had ten months in the Legislature, the party had already  some " good legislation on the  statute books. They would have  more, he went on, but for the  fact that the Government was  defeated over the matter of the  Rolston Formula.  The Social Credit Party was  born of necessity, it supported  a free, democratic way of life,  believed in honest administration and efficient operation. Free  ���enterprise was.- supported, but  monopolies were opposed.  The Social Credit Government  has, he said, reduced the Pro:  vincial Debt, reduced charges  on debt," instituted a large high*  upen House  Pender Hospital  ; Sunday, May 2l|hj St. Mary's  Hospital at Pender|Harbour will  open its doors and welcome all  comers who would like to inspect, or just visit,lor who would  like to see demonstrations of  Hospital Equipment/in  use.  The Hospital Committee advises that from one hi the afternoon until eight, in, the evening,  visitors will be -welcome, and  especially schoot^students.  During the "afternoon, light  refreshments will be. served to  those who wish.  # The committee Chairman states that there have been several  Doctors, with their #ives, who  have" been out to Pender to look  at the Hospital, and to talk with  the committee. Several of these  men have been very interested  in the position of Resident Doctor. However, decisions are not  being made in a rush, as it is  essential that both the" Board  and the Doctor be mutually satisfied.  It is expected ���'that an announcement will be made shortly as to the permanent occupant  of this post.       ....,.;.,    '        *  m  WSfc  Mr. Joh?* Perdue  Social Credit Candidate  ways program built on sayings.  In the matter of public works,  he stated, anyone may now tender for Government contracts,  examine contracts when awarded, and the tenders for same.  This, he claimed, has not been  the case with past governments.  British  Columbia  labour and  materials are to be given preference   in   Public   Works   programs. Here Mr. Perdue quoted  (Continued on Page 8)  (See  Perdue)  Gibsons Cubs  Get Charter  At FuH Meeting  At a weir attended-meeting in  the Gibsons Legion Hall on-Friday, May 8th, the Gibsons Kinsmen, as sponsors, were presented with the Charter for the  Gibsons Cubs. ,  Mr. J. Watson, organizer Of  the Scout Movement for the B.  C. Lower Mainland, made the  presentation.  Mr: Watson spoke of the Scout  Movement, and the aim of having other various groups sponsor  Cub Packs and Scout Patrols in  all the'centers on the Peninsula.  It is hoped that this will  shortly be accomplished, and  that a Commission will then be  set up on the Sechelt Peninsula.  There was an excellent and  appreciative audience, who enjoyed the presentation ceremony, and expressed their hearty approval of the proposed development and support of the  Scouting Movement locally, and  particularly the Gibsons' Kinsmen's Club for their excellent  beginning in Gibsons.  Sechelt Boys  Avert Tragedy  Presence of mind and quick  action on the part of teen-agers  David Parish and Michael Whit-���  aker of Sechelt saved 10 year  old Irvine Garry from anything  more serious than a thorough  wetting and a rusty bike. Riding on the Sechelt wharf the  pedal on Irvin's machine caught  on a bolt head on the edge of  the wharf and flipped both lad  and bike into the water. Tlie  older boys' reassuring shouts  kept Irvine dog-paddling till he  reached the ipiling under ��he  Wharf where he clung until the  boys could crawl down the cross  timbers to reach him. Dragging  operations the next day brought  the bike  back into  circulation.  David and Michael are to be  commended for their actions.  Irvine will have a long memory.  So���Alls well that ends well.  At Sechelt on May 7th, a good crowd filled the Legion Hall to^  hear the Liberal Candidate for the Mackenzie Riding, Mr Batt  Maclintyre. Capt. A. Johnston was chairman for the meeting, and  presented Mr. Maclntyre and his campaign manager, Mr. Harry  Davies, from Powell River. Batt announced the Liberal platform  in its broader aspects, and then went into some detail on several  points immediately concerning most listeners.  The  practice   of /paying   for          ���  Roads and kindred Provincial  expenditures by the long-term  loan method was fully covered.  Mr. Maclntyre explained that  our anticipated revenue from  the three cent share of the gasoline tax1 was used as collateral  for loans extending over approximately two generation^, Jin  order to build roads for general improvements of districts,  opening up of territory, etc.. In  this manner, tlie repayment of  loans is guaranteed, no matter  which party is in power in the  Provincial Government.  The benefits from road construction is a long term one,  and it is not unreasonable that  the funds to construct them  should be paid for over a similar periods  Hospital Premiums for persons \in, small-income groups  should be assumed by the .Government;  The Three Percent Sales Tax  brought many persons from the  floor into the'discussion. Merchants x and  trademeri. - find the  "Batt"   IVSacfotyre    ^  Liberal Candidate  ...     V   ., *���"���  ing his tenure of office, Batt  spoke of the road construction  and; improvement in his riding  that had resulted from his work,  and:.: planning;  the development  of the^ Blaick^BalL Ferry;;. lines,  accpun$u^;i,an^  of this tax an onerous; and expensive business, arid a. *head-  ache, in the book-keeping department.  The   matter   was   tabled   for-  interest.  Mr. Davis, the campaign manager, was valuable in his production of information as: required.   He is   conversant  witht  future  discussion,   Batt  having    the activities and needs of the  expresser himself as welcoming  ideas and suggestions on it.  The Provincial Education sys-  area, himself being in business  in Powell River. He owns and  operates a gasoline station, and  tern   was   discussed,   and'  Batt    knows the territory well.  praised the school-s and the  teachers for the work they  are accomplishing. He did, however, state that there were plans  to accomplish improvements  where indicated.  As for his Stewardship  dur-  Votes of thanks were tendered to the Candidate for his work,  and to Capt. Johnson for his  able chairmanship.  Following the song" of the  National Anthem, refreshments  were served by the committee.

However, pumping equipment as installed at the new wells  is not able to furnish the full delivery of the wells, and  funds available at this time are not sufficient to pay for  new equipment able to pump the full delivery.  In order that such water as is available may be utilized to  the fullest extent the Board has adopted the following Resolution:  "Sprinkling during the months of June, July, and  August, be allowed on permits to be issued by the  Clerk; such permits to allow sprinkling for one  hour per day, between the hours of 8 p.m. and  11 p.m., and on three days each week.

The Sports Beat  by Roy Duncan  Thanks to Fred Feeney's very  timely last of the ninth single  with a runner in scoring position the Gibsons )Firemen salvaged a 12���11 win over a team  made mostly of High School  kids in Gibsons sofball opener  last Sunday.  They scored two runs in the  first  innings  but  the Firemen  tripled the feat making the score  6���2.   Denny   Tyson   the   High  School kids starter suffered control trouble so Bob Nygren was  brought in to pitch the the remaining  eight innings.   It was  Bob's first turn on the mound  and   he   did   extremely   well.  Nygren    fed   opposing    batters  mostly slow stuff, which many  of the latter tried and failed to  hit out of the park.  Norm McKay the Smokies,  veteran started but was relievel  by Earl King in the fourth because of a sore arm. Norm  pitched beautiful ball when he  was in. He picked up seven  'strikeouts in the four frames  he pitched.  King pitching his first game  in a few years, ran into trouble  tight off the bat, so, Captain  Jim Drummond was brought in  as an extinguisher but he didn't  have the solution. Jim Hall, a  newcomer to the district finally  put out the blaze, but not until  after 8 runs had crossed the  plate giving us a 11���7 lead.  The Firemen were not to be  denied though, they rallied in  the seventh 'and eighth to tie  the  score, then came Feeney's  SOCIAL CREDIT 1  This advertisement is issued by  the    British    Columbia    Social  Credit Campaign Committee.  3C9  -K EXTRA SAFETY  * EXTRA MILEAGE  * SMOOTHER RIDE  B.F Goodrich  1  m  EXTRA  AVAILABLE IN  POPULAR PASSENGER CAR SIZES  Jerry's  Repair Shop  KLEINDALE  Pender    Harbour  As 1 See It  by Eric Iiindwali  Yesterday, I had the good  fortune to witness a girls' soft-  ball game. These games are some  of the most exciting in modern  day sports activity!  Here is a sample of the peerless playing ability as portrayed  by Elmer Dunkpot, world famous announcer: .  "Here we are,  sports  lovers  everywhere, at El p h i n s t o n e  Field   for  the  opening   day   of  girls softball. It's the bottom of  ithe ninth, with two down and...  here is  the batter,  Slug"  Mc-  Flum,   a   right-hander,   batting  and leading the league with an  average of .009. The first pitch is  ia   fast  ball... here  it   is . .. it's  coming... ah!   across   the   plate  for  a called strike one.  "Corkscrew" Farmhand is on the ball  today,  (literally,  since she just  tripped on the ball and fell on  it   when   the   catcher  rolled   it  back to her.) McFlum spits on  her hands, hitches up her jeans  and snarls in the direction of the  pitcher.   Farmhand   flexes   her  piassive shoulders and  delivers  the ball.  "Slugger" swings into  the familiar stance, (oops, holding the bat by the wrong end,  but the umpire corrects her in  time,) and smashes the ball far  out   into   the    field   oyer   the  pitcher's head. The second-baseman now hitches up her skirt,  (we now pause for station identification,) wades through a mud  hole, and closes in to field the  hit. McFlum is doing her utmost  to beat the throw to first but she  is called out: 'beaten by a superhuman  ten-foot  throw  by   the  opposing    second-baseman.    So  there it is folks, the end of the  ninth and the score is 93���17 for  the Elphinstone  Elephants,  (reputedly the heaviest team in the' y  league.)  So  remember,  tune in  next Friday at this time when  BLUNTS,  "Textbooks  for  Subnormal   Idiots"   brings   you   a  blow-by-blow, (or should I say,  error-by-error,)    account    of  Girls'   softball    at   Elphinstone  field.  costly    single   which   wrapped  things up.  Hall was credited with the  win and Nygren was charged  with the loss.  Both Mike Poole and Bob  Nygren got homers for the  losers.  The High School entry into  the six team Mid-Peninsula  League was accepted at a general meeting held a couple of  weeks ago at Wilson Creek. We  played our first game against  the Sechelt Braves on May 17th  at Sechelt. Each team will play  in the league will play 30 games.  The High School team will  play 25 games at Sechelt and 5  at Gibsons. This league was a  great success last season and  shows signs of being even better  this season.  The school sports scene consisted of House softball last  week. House C jumped into first  place in the Senior boys league.  They won two games during the  week. On Tuesday, they swamped House B 13���7 and edged a  6���-5 on Thursday.  House C is the only undefeated  team to date with 3 wins and  a tie for 7 points, A is next with  two wins, a tie and a loss for  5 points. B has no wins and 4  losses.  In the two junior games, A  and B tied 5 all on Monday, and  B beat C 8-���5 on Wednesday.  House B is still showing the  way in the Senior girls, though  they wereheld to a 9���9 tie by  C on Wednesday. On Monday  House A edged C 7���6.  The juhior girls two games  both ended in draws. B and C  deadlocked 14���14 oh Thursday.  A and B tied 11 all on Tuesday.  ��Sm  mil  Schedule No. 4, Cancelling Schedule No. %  \  May 1^  Subject To Change Without Notice  7-ROUND TRIPS DAILY-7  LV.

You've seen that sort of announcement in the papers often in  the past few years.  Out of it come more security and opportunity for the people  who live here . ... for young people growing up ... for new citizens  coming to make a living in B.C.  What lies back of every news item of that kind?  CONFIDENCE!  It's as simple as that. Someone had to make the decision to go  ahead. Someone who trusted the people of British Columbia. Someone who backed his judgment with investors' savings.  Without such continued confidence, there could be no further  progress in British Columbia. No more big new construction jobs of  the kind today making B.C. hum. No new pipelines, refineries, pulp  mills, mines, plywood plants, factories, power plants.  Worst enemy of confidence in this field is fear of Socialism ...  mistrust that people who believe the Government should own and  control nearly everything and everyone's affairs will have a chance to  experiment with their theories in B.C.  B.C. can go on forging ahead ... or B.C. can stagnate. It's up  to us who live and work in B.C. to decide.  . G.

In the Highways program, he  stated that the most extensive  Roads program to date was in  progress, at over 38 millions,  with no increase in debt.  The amendment to the minimum wages act included equal  pay for equal work, regardless  Of the sex of the worker.  There would be set up a more  reasonable a r a n g e m e n t for  taking care of injured workmen,  through compensation, than has  been in effect. Strike" vote regu-  lations were under revision, so  that the Government would now  merely supervise, and not intervene actively in labour and management disputes.  Agricultural Colleges are to  be set up to spread improvements in farming methods. Extension of rural electrification  is to be attained. ,  The problem of implementing  the results of the Liquor Plebiscite will be solved, as will the  problem of the Dhoukobour.  The Provincial Government  will repay 50 percent of municipal borrowings, and guarantee  the bonds for same. The sales  tax on meals is to be removed.  In the matter of forestry the.  pirn is for perpetual yield, and  protection for the small logger.  Access to logging roads on weekends and holidays is sought for  ithe public, particularly the tourists.  The development of Petrol  resources is to be done in such  a manner that the Province will  benefit to a greater extent than  before. The revenue from Pipeline distribution of Petrol and  gas products should give the  Province a rising revenue of  from two to nine millions per  annum.  Hospital, Insurance premiums  reduced, 'and co-insurance removed. Increased cost-of-living  bonus for pensioners is sought.  Increased education fa^iitics,  improved Hospitalization,: men-  ital hospitalization, and prison  improvements are to be instituted. ���     _:  The milk. prices problem had  been settled.  Had previous governments  listened to the voice of the  people, many of the laws now  on the statute books would not  have been, and the Social Credit  Government, which was formed  as a result of this past failure,  would not now be faced with the  task of amending or removing  them.     ��� ..        .      ���  At this point, it was announced that due to the fact that the  Social Credit Panty had not accumulated any "slush funds", a  collection'would be taken.  The question period opened  with Mr. Rees asking what  would be the policy of the Social  Credit party in the event that  Peace should come, and with it  the expected numbers of. people  out of employment? Mr. Perdue,  replied that if the control of  finance were in the control of  the Federal Government, there  was nothing to stop them from  ^creating enough new. money,  land at the same time, enough"  work projects, to absorb and pay  for the numbers of people who  might be temporarily unemployed as a result of peace. In that ?;  event there would be no depression.  Question by E. Sargent: Would  the wives of Veterans on allowance be cared for under the Hospitalization scheme? Mr. Perdue  replied that the Hon. Mr. Martin  had this problem in hand, and  that such was planned for.  Question by Mr. Burns: referring to the Sloan report, and ;  ithe result of the investigation  showing that no huge sums were  available from Workmen's Compensation  surplusses,  why   had  the Social Credit Government  not implimented legislation as  recommended by the Sloan Report? Mr: Perdue replied that  such legislation is under study.  Question by Mr. Peers as to,  why the Government had cut the  Pro-Rec funds to the point of  losing their director and staff,  Mr. Perdue\ felt that this provT  ince was even now spending  more in this field than any other  western province. B.C. had been  saved $25,000 by these cuts.  Describing the attainments of  Hungary, a war torn small land,  in the field of athletics at the  Olympic games, Mr. Peers went  on to show that Hungary spent  $3.00 per capita on physical  training, and came third in the  Olympics, where as in B.C., the  amout spent was 10 cents, and  the place in the Games for B.C.  was twenty^third. Is this" difference warranted?  Mr. Perdue said that personally, he was not in favor of the cut.  elected,- he would press for replacement of-.the funds for Pro-  Rec, he stated that he would  take any stand-that would benefit youth. x-y.x-:-..:  Question "by Mrs. Catttanach  as to what'had been done' about  the rising cost of living, specifi- .  cally on milk and meat, brought  the reply, that the" Socreds had  cut ithe cost of milk to the conu  sumer by removing controls on  milk prices above the producer  level, so that the large profits  of distributors were cut.  Questioned as to what was the  plan for the distribution of  liquor, Mr. Perde said he did not  know, but that, he knew there  was a plan under consideration,  Questioned^fey Mr. Burns as  to how the remoyal of the sales  tax revenue from the Municipalities would 'affect the ^Mackenzie riding, Mr. Perdue said  that though; he had not. the  figures broken down, he knew  that no municipality would receive less |fcm|l?^rr 1$52;rHe also  went on \^^a^^%r~tl^pv^yfi&\  was   riot ;>co^  exact figures, he believed that  the Rolston Formula, of which  he exhibited a copy, would solve  the difficulties confronting ^the  municipalities and the school  Boards.  There^ was-r considerable dis-.  cussion at this point of sales tax,  'savings to municipalities, jand  how they would be effected^  * Question from Mr Ritchey as  to whether some of the Hospital  funds, could be made "available  \  FIRE SAFE ROOFS  Season  The Weather  The Time  WE   CARRY   THE   STOCK  to,support the VON here.  Mr.  Perdue admitted that he thought__.  the   YQ3ST   was    so    supported/^  There wW some dscussioh as to  VON financing, with the small  grant   of   $350.00   per   annum  being   quoted   as  thfe   Govern-   ::  ments share. Mr. Perdue stated  that he would carry the case to  the Minister of Health.  Questioned by Mr. Peers as to  whether Mr. PerduWstill felt as  favorably about Venezuela now,  Mr.; Perdue stated that while in  that country, he had enjoyed it,  but .that now he was in B.C.,  and working- for good govern-  ment here.; ���      "  Questioned, as to what program, if any, the Minister . of ,  Highways. had , for secondary ���  roads, Mr. Perdue explained that  there wasfa dejinite!program for  the Mackenzie4 Riding,' arid that  the  Minister would .shortly be  ori the Peninsula to explain, it.  Questions on the reduction of  License fees. for cars, costs . of  gasoline, and Automibile Insurance premiums, Mr. Perdue did;:  i-ot have definite information,;  but the'.: audience' discussion  brought out the facts that some  Insurances were higher, some  lower. Mr. Perdue said that the  Government had been fooled by  the Insurance' companies, who  he intimated, had agreed to keep  down the premium costs if the  ��� ���     ������    ��� <_&   ���  Government stayed Out  of -the  insurance business.

Congratulations to Mrs. Dora  Swain on winning the very nice  lamp at the _ Community Park  Hall tea. Seems that at last  years' tea she won the hamper.  Lucky person j  Delegates to the Liberal Convention at Powell River, were  Mr. and Mrs. Harry Batchelor,  and Mrs. George Batchelor.  They reported a good convention  and a grand time had by all.  The fine weather brought out  the baseball enthusiasts in great  force last week, practices being  the order of the day, sore arms,  and sore legs were being nursed  by many.  With the Wilson Creek ball  park a dream almost realized,  it is hoped to be playing there  this summer. Volunteers have  worked very hard On this project  and deserve a great deal of  credit. It is wonderful what community spirit can do when  applied in the right place.  Hope all the "Little Mothers",  had a big day on Mothers Day.  Seems very sad to me that one  day a year she is honored, and  many ' are then forgotten for  another year.  by  OLD-TIMER  The acquaintance of Gower  Point made so many years ago  by hustling shingle bolts into a  shute for about 20 hours on end  for two or three days at a stretch  has never lost its memorial  freshness. The early dawn that  came after sleeping rough round  a large fire and then boiling  some tea before commencing the  long days- is a picture to the  mind of those bygone days.  The long Hours and the undue  haste was occasioned by having  a tug waiting for the boom and  a spell of calm weather. Nothing  emphasizes change so much as  the business of calling for a tug.  Those days we sent a letter  down on the old Comox and today we'lift the phone and call  through the air to the boat at  sea. I had no idea then that the  phrase tug coming would ring  in my ears for the rest of my  active life.  Gower Point was then a wild  land area having been logged by  ox team  and horses,  no  habitation at the beach at all. The  creek which I note now is being  confined by a concrete wall was  a lovely stream with fairly open  woodland for quite a piece back  and in the fall carried a heavy  run of Dog and Cohoe  salmon  and I suppose the remnants of  this once siver horde still battle  their way upstream in the fall  as far as they can. It was a joy  arid delight to come down from  the shack up at Gibson Heights  in November and chase fish up  and down the creek tilliwe finally had a load to pack up the  hilland it was a. good two mile  hike with ten fish over the shoulder which would give concern  to day for one�� sanity. We knew  no  law  and; the  winters  were  long and if the Indians smoked  salmon so would we and we did.  By trial and error we eventually arrived  at a  compromise .  ��� between   smoking   and   salting  that gave us many a meal that  were certainly envied by some  of the  more fastidious folk  a-  round the country.

After much discussion and  consideration, it was decided  that due to the uncertainty of  dates of completion of roads on  the Island, it would be advisable  to postpone building plans until  road and transportaion difficulties have been clarified.  In the matter of -admitting  Grade One pupils to schools, it  was decided to extend last year's  regulations and admit in September those beginners who will  have attained six years of age  on or before December 31st.  There   was   considerable   discussion     of     possibilities      of  either  a  highschool,  or  having  Highschool  Classes   at  Madeira  Park.   The  total- enrollment  of  that   school   is   now    176,   the  second   largest   in   the  district.  The number of students in High-  school now is 28. It was decided  to recommend to the department  Of Education the establishment  of a two roomed Highschool in  September.   It   will   likely   be  necessary to  use  the  Activities  room for one of them.  The present school at Madeira  is rapidly becoming overcrowded.  At Elphinstone High School,  the Coronation Ceremonies are  set as follows: Sports Day, June  1st. Commences at 9:30 a.m.  Preliminary ceremonies precede  Sports. Proceedings commence  at 2:30 p.m. for Elementary  School.  A portrait of the Queen has  been framed in Phillipine mahogany by Mr. Peers, of the  teaching staff, and will be hung  above the Coronation Display  cabinet.  An accident to one of the girl  Students occurred in Science"  class, resulting in injuries re-'  quiring medical atention. The  school Board is claiming for the  amount of expenses incurred,  under their Insurance Policy.  A report has been received by  the Board to the effect that the  public, when in attendance at  public functions in the auditorium, are smoking in corridors,  and causing much added cleaning to be required. Notices prohibiting this practice are to be  posted. It s also brought up that  members of the public, have a  tendency to wandering unaccompanied through corridors and  into class rooms, which practice  is unauthorized. Barriers are to  be put into use to prevent this.  There has been no Public  Health Nurse since February in  this area. No information has  been received as to availability  of a P.H.N, until after the new  nursing classes graduate.  The offer of the school board  to the Union Steamship Com-  any of $3,000.00 for the land adjacent to the School Site was  refused. Nothing less than  $3500.00   was  acceptable.  This sum has now been offered  by the School Board, provided  they may have an option for one  year to purchase the actual  school site, which is now leased,  for the sum of $4000.00.  There has been no progress  made in the mater of securing  the services of a School Dentist.  Other districts are reporting  similar difficulties.  N.

And! every month they'e postponed costs you money  you'd otherwise be making. ^  If you haven't enough ready cash to cover the beginning  of your modernization program, a Bank of Montreal Farm  Improvement Loan may be your answer.
