This was  found outside of the building,  just before eight o'clock in the  morning.  He described.'the clock as the  one carried by Haynes, and that  he had taken it with him and reported the matter to the Plant.  The time the last, use of the  clock was made was established  by the last punched ticket.  D .Macklam, of, the Howe Sound  Pulp and Paper Company described the work done by Haynes,  . ari^t the fsj��t that his duties- did  not require that he carry firearms, in fact= if they were carried, it was in contravention of  the policy of the Company! The  duties of the security guards was  more that of Fire guards than  .otherwise. . -��� '������->���.  He also stated that Haynes  would only have made two more  tours of duty in; the plant, as his  services were being dispensed  with; ; .-��� .. - :���'���:���- -  J.D.

Subjects  ; discussed: How any group opera-  y tes;Work of the Federation in  jjbousing; Credit Union and other  ^benifits; Discussions on curriculum in B.C. Schools.  Mr. L. Petersorii, local public  relations representative, gave a  report on the writer's;work shop.  The objective was ^ig- have B.C.  Teacher' to express their ideas  in the "B.C. Teacher'* and other  educational publications.  There was considerable discussion of Salary Scales, and  principals involved ;if changes  were made. y  The Financial report was pre*-  sented for discussioni. It was  unfortunate -that tHis^ report was  so brief, but Mr. L. Peterson of  tlie Elphinstone High School,  ��� who was taking the notes for it,  was taken ill, and has been taken  to Shaughnessy Hospital.  It is to be hoped that the illness will be a short one, and that  on his return^ Mr. Peterson, will  be able to resume his office of  Public Relations.  W.A. Luncheon  The Wqmens' Association of  the Gibson United Church, held  a most delightful Pot Luck Luncheon on Thursday October 1st.  There was a good attendance,  many friends from neighboring  localities as well as regular  members.  Following the luncheon the  regular meeting was held.

A letter from A.J. Gargrave, MX.A. enclosed one from. M_7-  Bonner, the Attorney General, quoting from a letter from. _fcg*  assistant Commissioner of the R.C.M.P. This letter advised Mr,-  Bonner of the fact that am additional member of the R.C.M.P. fetaxS.  been posted to Gibsons for a month, and that after that time  the necessity of continuing would be considered.  It was decided to write to the  Honu Mr. Gaglardi, to the effect  that off-the-street parking  should be provided by the Transport company, and suggesting  that in lieu of- this, or until it  was, done, the use of the School  Road by widening and building  of a curb might provide angle  parking for such traffic, that the  Gower Point Road and the Winni  roads might be used by widening  to forty feet of traffic space and  providing for center parking  there for ferry traffic, and, in  the same way the South Fletcher  Road might be used.  Copies of this letter were sent  to Mr. Gargrave-and to the Gibsons Board of Trade.  In the matter of the water  installation', the Public Utilities  were to be advised.that the estimated cost of making this- connection was five hundred dblfars.  for Ed Fiedler's ��� application.

Phone Gibsons 45W  Box 128 Gibsons  British Columbia.  itonal5  It is to be hoped that the City Fathers and the Bus Company may soon grow to see eye to eye in the matter of a central, convenient stop for the busses serving the territory.  By the time that Gibsons warrants a Bus Station, it is  quite likely that the Transport Company will be in a position  to erect one. It is rather looking ahead, to expeciti them to -buy  expensive property and erect a Bus Station, with all that is'  ���entailed, before it is definitely known whether the runs just  begun will warrant such an expense, and before it is known  whether feeder runs may be profitably established.  To quote what is 'city practice' as a rule by which the  village must abide, seems it�� be slightly on the fussy side. It  seems 'to us that the Commission has one of two things in  mind: The Village is about' to burst at its seams and become  a metropolis overnight, or iit is to be kept from natural expansion by any and all means at hand.  From our arm chair, with nothing else to do but criticize,  it seems something in the nature of a small joke, to expect at  this stage of development, that any. transport company should  be required to purchase front street property to provide itself  with a spot convenient to the businesses of that village, where  the passengers may alight, and where they may board again  with their purchases.  Is it noiti also possible, in these times of rapid change, that  the business area of the Village, too, may change? It is not  unknown in the annals of the development of centres of population.  The matter that seems to cause such furrowing of brows  is the possible need to "amend the by-law." When the time  arrives that this is proven either necessary or advantageous,  it can be done. The by-law, like all other laws governing the  conduct of humanity in such mundane matters as traffic regulation, was made by men. Surely men can change it, without  causing too great a catastrophe.  Sechelt sanitation  There is a report carried elsewhere in this issue on the  matter of the Sechelt Garbage disposal, as discussed by the  Board of Trade for that area.  . This newspaper has been thundering on the subject of  garbage disposal at Gibsons in detail, and on the Peninsula  in general for many months.  There is not one beauty spot oh the whole coast that is  not fouled by garbage from homes and business establishments in the neighborhood.  , On our most receent trip up the Coast, we took particular  care, to drive into, stop beside or to wa]k in)bo a great number  of these otherwise pleasant little places. Tin cans, boxes bottles, bags of waste, remnants of old furnishings, trucks and  cars grace so many of these tha|fe one wonders how such a  mass could accumulate.  "Sunshine Coast" it may be, but not through the efforts  of its* inhabitants;  In the case of Sechelt, as in that of Gibsons the.honest  efforts of the few are offset by the laziness, thoughtlessness,  and cupidity of th�� many.  .��� We boast, abroad of our country's beauty, we publish it in  papersand magazines,- and at home we do our tiumost to destroy it. What does it take to awaken people ?  ouna-up  cided upon by theorists, most of  whom have never taught.  He stresed the importance of  -the influence of the home upon,  the child and pointed out that  jhe school's influence covered  but 5 hours of the day. He added  that, in many cases, parents saw  a great deal less of their children than that.  Influence of Church and Sunday School touched a scant 50  percent.  Said Mr. Pritchard, "School  is not the only agency bringing,  up your child. First, and most  important, is the# home. Then  to be coLsidered are playgrounds, church, sunday school,  clubs, camps, books and jobs;"  ROUND   UP  And speaking of jobs, I am  reminded of the two small boys  who came to the Creek to visit  ,their granparents. In order to  keep them occupied, and entertained1, perhaps to get a little  wood in, Grandpa offered thenr  fifty cents an hour to "bring ir���  wood. The boys worked diligently one morning and then appeared before the old man.  "That's ^ pretty, tough job,  Grandpa," they said. "It is worth  ���more money. We'll do it for $1  an hour."   ��� *  One wonders what Grandpa  will have to pay' for wood when  the lads _re old enough to do  the job efficiently.  A tree may grow in Brooklyn,  but it is not a dogwood. Nor do  clusters ��� of luscious grapes  dangle from its upper branches.  Such a tree does grow on the  Ruth Mitchell estate at the  Creek. At least she swears she  cut the grapevine root out last  ini which case it follows  that the grape must belong to  the dogwood tree.  Mr. and Mrs. Johnny Mathews  are off to the South for a Vacation.  Badminton got under way om  the 29th in the Hall. Some' 15 or  Iso members showed up to enjoy  fche game until the ligh<ts went);  out about 10 o'clock. The 'gals  (who made the coffee were advised (by their husbands) to take  cooking lessons first and badminton second. Could they help  it if they were forced to make?  the beverage in the dark?  mnmg supply  ReJsiii  Mr. E.J. (Chief) Caldwell was  busy cleaning up the lot and-  debris following the fire which  'entirely demolished the building  and stock last Monday morning.  There was nothing salvageable;'  except a small quantity of lumber. 'Chief says he will rebuild,  bigger and better, and meantime  is carrying on his business with  an office space at the C and S  Sales premises.  The fire mar shall and the Insurance underwriters have giveni-  him the go-ahead sigm, so he and  Don are on the job.  The building was insured, but  there was no insurance on the  quite considerable stock carried  by the Peninsula Building  Supply. ';',  Baptism  A very interesting ceremony  was held at the United Church  (in Wilson Creek, when directly  after the Sunday/school concluded, the Rev. W.M^ Morrison  held a   baptismal service.  The following children were  the principals: Sandy Donald  1I_U'ckeh, only son* of Mr. and  Mrs. Harry Lucken; Arleue, Bernard, Stanley, David, and Glen-1  eth MacLeod, children of Mr.  and Mrs. Jack MacLeod, well  known residents of Wilson  Creek.  After the ceremony, the guests  attending the affair were invited  to an informal tea, served by  Mrs. H. Macleod at her home,  "Punvegan". For the occasion,  Baby Macleod wore the same  robe in which her maternal  Grandfather was christened.  '  The Peninsula  ��� The following letter was. received recently addressed to  "Robbie'''' one of our Coast .News  correspondents, $nd we take the  liberty of publishing it:  Dear Robbie:.  Being a regular reader of the  Coast News, I thought I would  like to express my thoughts of  the Peninsula.  I' own property off the Logging Road, Wilson Creek. Have  been going there every summer  for the last eight years, and have  seen, the marvellous' 'developments that have taken place.  The--\road from" 'Gibsons to  Sechelt is as good as any in the  Province. (So different' from a  few months back:) \  I have had visitors from Vancouver, and they all expressed  delight re: roads and scenery.  We attended the. ball game at  Sechelt on Labour Day and were  delighted to see 'our own team'  win the trophy (Wilson Creek.)  by Madge Newman  FIRE   DEPARTMENT  Now that you have received  your letter anent the fire fighting equipment, you will be  eagerly awaiting the visit of the  canvasser to collect your contribution, and in this, some may  be disappointed owing to the  illness of two canvassers. But be;  not down-hearted. Simply place  that two-spot in a stamped envelope and mail to Mrs. R.  Cumming who is the secretary  of the Improvement Association.  You will then have a sense of  well-being in that you have contributed to a worthy cause, and  played your part in helping to  protect, perhaps save, your own  and   others'   homes.   Have   you  done that? All right. Now, start  saving    for    the    next   worthy  cause. We are all in this thing  'together and to progress we have  to  stick together and work together,    yea,    and    dig    down  together.  RED   CROSS  The next worthy cause in this  week's lecture is the Red Cross.  Did   you  know   that  the  local  branch has to make and deliver  100 babies' nighties this winter?  Also   knit  sweaters  for  4-year  olds and children's socks? Also  imake 12 quilts?  The   number   of   workers   in  this   branch   is   pitifully  small.  Their workroom is a warm and  comfortable cottage donated by  Mrs.   C.F.   Haslam  where  they  meet each Thursday at 2, where  they collect and deliver the work ,.. .year,  to take out, work on the quilts,  and end up at 4:30 with a cup  of tea.  The amount of work sent to  headquarters from here is quite  miraculous but it is tough going  ior the group and they urgently  need help. The nighties are cut  out and ready .to sew. Have you  a sewing machine? Will you take  some  home   and   stitch?   Could  you knit a small sweater in odd  moments   at   home,   wool   and  directions   supplied?  Anything you can or will do  will be of great service and  much appreciated. Just get. in  touch with Mrs. J. Ward, Works  Convenor, who has a phone.  TEACHERS ��� PTA MEET  For the fifth consecutive year,  parents and teachers of District  46 set off by chartered bus and  private car on the 3rd to meet  )at Madeira for conference. This  delightful annual affair provides  an opportunity for members of  the several PTA's to discuss  together problems; shared by all,  ���and to meet old friends and  make, new ones.  The teachers elect their officers and discuss their school  problems.  All met in one room in the  imorning, after receiving from  the local PTA a welcome, warm-  ' ing cup of coffee, to listen to a  talk by Mr. D. Pritchard, Vice-  Principal of Gladstone School,  which establishment comprises  some 2300 students and 92 teachers.

Unfortunately, the junior boys will  not have any games with outside  teams this term..  The schedule will be made up  with a game or two with the  Senior girls, Junior girls if they  organize a team, and scrimmagei  games against each other. Last  ��� year the junior boys played a  total of six games and had the  complementary average of a six  game win.  In Physical Education the boys  have been introduced to touch  rugby. This sport has aroused  much interest: throughout ��� the  school and is drowning out the  soccer spirit. When this year's  new council comes into office,  there is talk of having this sport  included  in the  house leagues.  SCHOOL ORCHESTRA  Missing the services of their  last year's director, Elsie Kendall, the Elphintone School Orchestra met Wednesday to discuss plans for the coming  session. Eric Lindwall, former  first violinist, will come from  the Gibsons Branch of the Bank  of Montreal each Wednesday  noon to dirct the group.  Prospective ?musicians for the  coming year include accompanist  Karen Stockwell, Elphinstone's  "'Miss O Canada!", veterans  Coral Benn, Bruce Steinbrunner,  Norma Carl, Wayne Reimer and  . Darlene Laycock, and newcomers. David Chippendale, Wilson  Anderson, and Joanna Ritchey,  who is determined to become a  member even if it means learning to play a tuba.

The results are as follows: President, Jack Cressweli, Vice-  President, Warren McKibbim,  Secretary, Karen Stockwell,  and Treasurer * Ruth -Tyson.  DON'T WE HAVE FUN?  by Annette Marleau  Due to the. illness of a trusty  campaign manager, I was called  upon, (at very :short notice,) to  prepare and deliver a speech on  behalf of a candidate for Presidency.  Up until the last moment beJ  fore the ordeal, I was very much  tempted to pull a disappearing  act, but in due time, I as campaign manager, was called upon  by name, no, the sick campaign!  manager's name was still listed,  end when I appeared on the  floor, many cheers on her behalf, found the rafters.  Sickened with stage^fright, I  plunged feet first, by holding my  speech bottom up.  In the contents of the description of my favorite" candidate,  which, were copied from rules  I was told to stand by, I used  none of the advertising that had  .been displayed on many eMss-  ���room. boards. Disgusting.  Tell them simply that she will  uphold the office she is-elected  into, with   complete poise,  sincerity,  and common  sense. So,  thinks I to myself, who is level- ...'.  headed enci gh to elect a level-  head into the council? No one? !

Hugh Inglis of Gibsons,  '<����3_j iiad performed the autopsy,  ._s_3seribed the location of the  *s#sc_md, its nature, and the angle  <_e_ s_s travel, stating that for the  _j$_0_et to have travelled down-  t__srd at the angle it did, the gun  <_��J__d have been held in the  ;^e_Bons left hand.  _fo_ir Foreman J. Carlson's  ._2_��_ement was concerned with  Jka&ing seen Haynes before five  M_r"feJo��j- a.m. wearing a coat.  j|"jr.. Tobin described the act-  ,%&&& of Haynes on the night of  ,j_S_^tember ninth.. He  described  Ms& iact that Haynes had called  ._���� Ms room three times during  __2_? night,  between making his  ^mxads.  JEle answered the Coroner's  v^ssfistions as to recognition of  .___����� revolver as being exactly  .___nilar to one possessed by  Marynes, and kept by him both  ���tteiwle living in worker's quarters  ���.&& the mill and kept in his shop  ~a_l Ms home in Hopkins. It had  )____[ a barrel pitted in the same  <Qn being shown photographs  _ _he body, he recognized the  $___ti6n as that in which he had  Jfefcseen it. He had been present  ���wlfcen Cpl. Morrison uncovered  __t He   did 'not recall whether  ___syT.es had been wearing a coat  <��i_  his   rounds.   He   had   often  ���gca&e about in his shirt sleeves.  He had   not  looked  closely  at  '.Waynes,   iand   would   not   have  _��g$_3ced   whether   he   carried   a  -.revolver on him.  JMr. Tbbin asked about the  x&p.Qrt from the analyst confirm-  isig the fact that there was an  __a_xsual percent of carbon mon-  __ride ini the blood sample sent  ifcy  Dr.  Inglis for  examination,  .aascl stated that there were no  3_sa_hines or engines operating  ___. the plant at the time which  ��� _SE_s[_ci have produced the carbon  monoxide. He referred to a com-  j___rnt by Dr. Inglis in his report  tiifaai a very heavy smoker might  .' fiKSfiFe a certain small percent of  _arbor_ monoxide  in  his blood.  ! JC_\ Inglis offered to bring to  a����i_rt a text confirming this,  ��s_slcli he did.  IPJjoIqs and revolver passed to  Jfjsry members for their examina-  _ion.  Cpl. Morrison was then sworn  In, and made his report.  39e had been called by tele-  f^__D��e, and told that R.A. Haynes  3&2b& been found dead in the Pulp  iKrarehouse at the Deep Sea  Wharf at Port Mellon. He noticed the Coroner by phone, and  ^saent to Port Mellon. There, he  J_ound the body face down, on a  !&5g beam on the floor.  Be had photos taken by Frank  ^Woodhouse. These were shown  fio tlie  jury, showing  how  the  revolver was found in the left  hand. Then two large "C" clamps  were shown. These also were  found under the body. They had  not been identified as tools belonging to any of the Port Mellon equipment. They were  handed to the jury for examination. Foreman George Hill, after  examining the clamps, stated  that they bore marks of having  been used on a welding job, as  indicated by the 'spatters' on  them.  No explantion has been found  for their presence, nor for any  possible purpose to which it  might have been intended they  be put.  Articles taken from the, victim's pockets were introduced,  comprising a flashlight, a Legion  card, Insurance card, a game  warden's card (which, Cpl. Morrison stated, Haynes was not  entitled to carry), army identification card, meal tickets, etc.  A wrist watch, lighter and comb  were part of the pocket contents,  . as were pens, and car keys, since  returned tp Mrs. Haynes.  Ten rounds of .22 ammuniton  ���were also in one of the pockets.  These later caused some questions from the jury.  Cpl. Morrison went on to describe the car owned by* Mr.  Haynes, and the fact that on the  iseat of the car he had found a  ring of keys since shown to pertain to the Haynes home, and  Hayne's coat.  The baggage compartment lock  had been sprung or broken, and  a section of rubber hose had  been found there.  The kahki shirt and T-shirt  worn by Haynes were also introduced, to show that there was  no bullet hole in the outer shirt  to correspond with that in the  T-shirt under it.  Tests from the R.C.M.P^ Laboratory did not show residue  from the smokeless powder used  in the .22; rim-fire cartridges  similar to those in. the revolver.  The bullet from the body was  shown by tests to have the same  rifling as those fired from the  barrel found under the body.  Cpl. Morrison went on to explain how all angles had been  investigated, those of possible  accident, as well as those of possible foul play. There were no  signs of either struggle or chase,  as might have been thee ase had  Haynes interrupted any per|:>n  bent on mischief in the plant.  The amount of carbon monoxide in the blood, five percent  was quite sufficient to affect  the mind, to make one appear  'stupid'. He was ,able to offer no  explanation for the presence of  the 'C clamps.  The jury and some of the previous witnesses asked questions  relative to possibility of accident, and of possibility of some  one in the upper beams of the  room having fired the /shots. The  questions were all 'answered,  showing negative probability.  Dr. McColl then summed up  the evidence, showing the unusual behaviour of Haynes in  leaving for work, returning and  starting out again, in his three  visits to Mr. Tobin in his room,  ���the condition of the car and the  hose, suggesting that he might  have endeavoured to inihale carbon monoxide from the exhaust,  dry  Matron Mrs. Hartley advises  that the patient-days in Hospital  are on the increase again, slowly,  but steadily, making the position  of the Hospital better, financially.  Dr. Richard Hitchen, about  whom more elsewhere, is in residence with his wife. They  brought their sailboat up from  Vancouver*on Saturday, arriving  just before noon. A long line of  patients .was awaiting the Doctor  on his arrival.  Two new; nurses are introduced  ���Miss Sorenson, from Denmark,  who has spent the past year in  Truck Overturned  At Selma  ACCIDENT CAUSED  BY "CUTTING IN"  Mr. "WV Swain, C. &. S. Sales,  .Sechelt, reported a freak accident  to the firm's truck. He and. Mr.  and Mrs. D. Currie, were returning from the bowling alley Friday evening, when a passenger  car overtook them just near the  residence of Frank Wheeler,  Selma Park. As the car cut in  front of them it hooked the rear  bumper onto the front bumper  of the truck. The force of the  impact   overturned   the  truck.  Fortunately, occupants of the  truck and the car were unhurt,-  and there was very little damage  done to the vehicles. Mrs. Currie  did ruin a perfectly new pair of  stockings.  "v  ithe leaving of Ahe time \ clock  outside, some distancefrom the  job. He described the possible  pain from his back injury, possible worry about future treatments and the long wait before  results could be known, worry  febout dismissal, etc. and again  mentioned the fact that the man  was having to use a sedative  about three times daily.  The facts of the body being  found showing no disturbance  to clothing or even ruffled hair.  Previous laxity in guarding mill  property was brought out to  show the unlikelyhood of this  being the occasion of extreme  protective action such _s chasing  a marauder. The revolver, the  Coroner went on, was known to  have belonged to Haynes.  He then directed the jury to  find how, rwhen and where Raymond Arthur Howard Haynes  had come to his death, whether  suicide, accident or foul play.  The jury retired. They returned in about fifteen minutes, aiM  the foreman read the verdict of  "death from gunshot wounds  iself inflicted while under mental  strain due to ill health.''  Vancouver hospitals, and Miss T.  E. Rasilainen, from Finland,  whose introduction to Canada  was an eight-months tour of duty  in Toronto.'  Bishop Gower visited last week  and inspected the Hospital in  company  with   Canon  A.   Greene  of the Columbia Coast Missions.  He was favorably.: impressed, and  had enjoyed ris trip on the John.  Antle..  . The Bishop was on a regular  tour of his parishes in the Westminster diocese.

'rice  The Minister of Agriculture  'announced that, effective Oct.  1st, controls regarding the sale  of milk above the producer level  would be abolished. The new  orders passed by the Milk Board  provide for a fixed price to the  producer on a butter-fat basis.'  The'price to the producer under  the new orders is the same as  "that presently in effect.  In "announcing the .decontrol,  the Minister stated that the Matter of milk controls has been  under careful study by the Milk  Board and by the Government  for over a year.- The very disconcerting factors present in the  milk industry under the overall control1 policy presently in  existence, were primarily the  facts- that while production was  continually on the increase, especially over the past two years,  consumption of milk on a per  capita basis was still on a downward trend. '  From a standpoint of public  health and well being and from,  ^ standpoint of net returns to  the producer this was definitely  not a satisfactory solution. With  the elimination of all. controls  '.above the producer level, it is  felt that open competition -will,  not only improve the quality of  the milk offered to the public  but will contribute to more ec  onomical distribution. This in  turn should increase the overall  consumption of fluid milk with  ���great benefit to the public from  the standpoint of health and  very definite^ benefit to the producer from the standpoint of  broadening the market.  gfroMs _ uuiaes  A well attended meeting at the  home of Mrs. G. Powell, Sechelt,  showed the lively interest there  is in the Girl Guide Association.  It "was found there are enough  girls to form two Brownie Packs  and a Girl Guide Company- in  the Sechelt .district.  Mrs: Archie Williams, Brown  Owl, was pleased that five ladies  have volunteered to assist with  the training. They are Mrs. Ross  Laycock, Mrs. Tom Walker, Mrs.  Jack Morrison, all of Sechelt,  and Mrs. Eilis Prendergast of  Selma'Park.  There is need for one more  leader to help carry out a full  program of training, and it is  hoped someone will come forward. It is not necessary that  this person have Guidihg experience.  Monday afternoons, after  school, have been set as the*  meeting time. Temporarily, the  annex at Sechelt'School is to be  used, until such time the St.  Hilda's Church Hall is completed. The men of the parish  are working every Monday to  complete the hall.

Kennett.  The metiorological records for  the month of September 1953  are as follows for the Gibson'st  area together with . comparitive.  figures for September 1952.  Total rainfall for September  in 1953 was 2.39 inches, and in  1952 was 1.14 inches. Days with  Rain was 11 in. '53 against 10  in', 52. Heaviest 24 hour rainfall  was] .63 inches, against .45  inches.  . There was one thunderstorm  in '53 and none in '52. Two gales  in '53 and none in '52.  The first half of September  was generally sunny and fair.  The later portion of the month  saw deteriorating weather conditions. Rain was recorded every  day from September 25th on.  Undoubtedly, the highlight of  the .month was the high winds^  and driving "rain on September  27th and 29th causing much  concern to - transportation and  utilities throughout the area.  The question arises in most  our minds at this time of year5  as to the severity of the winter  before oils. September rainfall  was near average, so we might  Hook forward to normal winter  conditions, i.e., rain and comparatively mild temperatures;  Hpwever the occurrence of  two gales in September is above  normal, leading us to surmise  the possibilities of continued  blasts.  October   has   produced   dull  conditions and rain thus far, irv  addition   to   fresh   breezes   and  fairly   mild   temperatures.   Unfortunately, weather forecasting  has not reached the stage whereby conditions cam be forecast for  {months to  come.  The  limit  of  accuracy to a high degree is five  days, leaving us the. next five  months to enjoy many a friendly  conversations about "weather/'  FORMER   SELMA    .

A MESSAGE  When .the house opened last  Wednesday afternoon Speaker  Irwin rose in his place, held his  three corner black hat in his  hand and reverantly told the  House, in his Scotch burr that  he had "a message from his Honr  our   the   Lieutenant-Governor."  Those with a - knowledge of  parlimentary procedure smiled  because we knew the Speaker  was trying to say the government was about to introduce its.  Liquor Bill. All bills concerning  the expenditure of public funds'  or important government policy  are brought in on "message.''  The press, opposition, and the  people of the province have been  waiting for a long time to see  this legislation.  So far the Bill has only been  given its first reading. Two more  readings and the committee  etage of the Bill lay ahead. It  will probably become law ini substantially the same form that it  was introduced by the government.  How will this Bill (No. 29 on  the order paper) affect the drinking habits of people in this district? At present, not much.  Bill No. 29, "An Act to prov-  �� ide for Government Control and  Sale of Alchoholic Liqours",  will, allow us ti drink malt beverages or wine with our meals.  It's quite apparent that the new  Liquor Control Board will only  be giving these privileges to the  (elaborate type of restaurant.  Drinking rum sodas at the corner drug store is out. However,  you ^ill be able to serve drinks  at- your next bowling banquet if  it is a "special" occasion. -  EATING, DRINKING ANu  LOUNGING  Next on the list is the Dining  Lounge licence. This means that  night clubs and cabarets will be  able to serve drinks as well as  meals. When you visit a Vancouver night club for an evening  of dancing you will be able to  eat,; drink and lounge, instead of  merely eating and lounging as  we did in the pre-Steven age.  The third type of licence will  establish for  the first  time   in  B;C., public cocktail bars. It. is  called   a   Lounge   licence,    the  typical veterans' club or masonic  lodge which serves drinks to its  members and their guests  will  require a Lounge licence to remain in business after Dec. 31st,  1954. A Lounge licence does not  require the proprietors to servei  smeals. Outside of genuine clubs  only hotels will be permitted to  set up cocktail bars.  Fourth, and finally, Bill 29  would- establish "public houses'?  in this province. In other words;  beer parlors will be able to continue to serve beer by the glass  plus "light refreshments."'  The only significant change im  the "public house" section of the  new Act is that no longer will  the operator ,of a beer parlour  have to serve a . certain brand ,  of beer or operate a hotel. Within fifteen months the breweries  must dissolve any financial tie  up they may have with the retail  outlets.  The New Liquor Bil leaves  much of the details and all of  the Regulations to be drawn un  by the. Liuor Control Board.  Opening and closing times are,  not mentioned in the Act and  will  be  established  by  regula  tion.  Mother and father will be able"  to take their children under the -  age of twenty-one into a licensed restaurant. Young men will  be able to take their under-age -  girl friends into a licensed night,  club.   However,   if- the   waitejr  serves liquor to a young man ox-  women who is under age, he i&-  guilty oi a violation of the Act.  and   he   may  be   fined   or   imprisoned    With     the    penalties  starting at 300' dollars.  The Act states that-the'judge  or magistrate shall use his judgement according to the ��� circumstances.  With the exception of present-  private  clubs,  Village Ccoicnils"  or citizens through' petition,, cars:  protest the assignment of licenv^  ces. In that event a  plebescite  will be held. A 45 per cent "no"''  vote on each type of license will "  veto   an    application   to   serve-  liquor by the glass.

Jackson, Selma  Park General Store, and Mr. J.  Bottom, Standard Oil Station  No. 2.  A liason committee has been  set up consisting of two members  of the Board of Trade, Mr. Fred  Oike and Mr. W. Parsons, and  two memb*ers from tlie Sechelt  Volunteer Fire Brigade, Mr. F. J.  Mills, Fire Chief, and Mr. F. H.  Billingsley,   assistant  Fire   Chief.  Existing speed limits and road  signs were discussed, and the  Civic Affairs Committee was  asked to bring tin a full report  to the members, so action could  be taken in the matter.  The garbage dump was discussed. This is on property  leased from Union Estates Ltd.  by Mr. M. Hemstreet, who removes garbage and refuse from  business firms and residences in  Sechelt, Selma Park, and Wilson  Creek. Mr. Hemstreet is responsible for maintaining a fire guard  of thirty feet around the dump,  and for seeing the place is kept  in a sanitary state, and free from  fire hazard.  Private residents have been  taking their refuse and garbage  in their own cars and trucks to  the dump, and unloading it anywhere on the site and even along  the road to the site. This is creating a health nuisance, also making it difficult to properly supervise the garbage dump. Mr.  Hemstreet feels he may have to  suspend the garbage removal service, as maintenance of the dump  is becoming too costly, through  indiscriminate dumping of garbage by the local residents. The  Board of. Trade, through their  Health Committee, have undertaken to campaign to make th��  residents conscious of the necessity for the proper removal of  garbage and refuse, particularly  in view of the increased popula  tion.  It is illegal to dump refuse  on a public highway. The garbage  dump is private property, and  residents are trespassing when  they drive or walk onto the sate.  Various committees of the  Board of Trade are working on  projects, and will be reporting  back to the members.  Halfmoon  earns  By I. MILLER  Sorry folks, no news last week.
