Bus Stop Discussed  By Commission  An application for an area to  be used ...as" a central Bus stop,  was placed before the Gibsons  Landing Board of Commissioners by; the Sechelt Motor Transport, Ltd., with the suggestion  that it be central, for example  in front of the School Board  Office.  The commission! did not look  with entire favor upon this as  a stop,' arguing that the bus  would take up the space of approximately "six cars at that  point, anjd that should that area  be used to park cars, more persons    might    be    accomodated  than would be by its use as a  such    practical   assistance   --were "'; bus stop...

"As many as 100 automobiles  are lining up from the ferry  dock, stretching through the  Village and blocking many business premises.  "I would urge the Attorney-  General's   Department  and  the  Minister of Public Works to cooperate with the ferry company  and the  Village of Gibsons to  remedy these traffic problems.  "The new road to Port Mellon  which  is   now  completed,   and  the road to Powell River* which  . is now- under construction, plus  the development of the Sechelt  .

The secretary then read a brief  report of the financial business  of the Board for the past year,  ���which was accepted.

British Columbia.  ilonal5  Bouquets this week to the Gibsons and District Kinsmen.  jThat they have seen a public need ,arid ithat they have riot  stopped merely at its recognition, but that they have gone out  land done something about it.  In last week's 'News' we published an account of the fact  that the Kinsmen had raised and used almost seven hundred  dollars for the benefit of the community by improving their  community playground, have installed play equipment for  children, have installed proper sanitary facilities there, and  that they intend to carry on this good piece of work in addition to their other laudable efforts.  To the Kinsmen, then, Orchids.  ponce court n  Much comment, both adverse and favorable, have been  ireceiyed regarding our publication of Police Court News.  fThose persons who have the misfortune to be caught breaking  rules and regulations that have been set up for the amenable  existence of society at large irito which we have grown, are  prone to wish their names may be lefit out of the little column.  It should be stated here that the column is not published  vith malicious intent, albeit occasionally wifth the tongue in  jthe cheek.  It is our hope, that those who pause to read the Court  News may gradually be informed of the fact that there a*re  certain things which aught not to be done, and that the doing  Of them is regarded as actionable.  Though we live beyond Howe Sound, we do not live beyond  the Law. Many people, when they move to the country, feel  that they have moved to an area where they have no responsibilities to the rest of the people who live there, and tha,t they  may act in any manner the mood of the moment dictates.  The work of our estimable police force, and that of the  courts may be cut considerably, if it is realized that here,  Itoo, is civilization. The consequent costs, not only to individuals who "didn't get away witih it", but to tax-payers generally, may be considerably reduced.  As for those who approach us with the. offer of some  kind of reward for forgetting to include their own little indiscretions, we forgive. We also publish. We feel that the, consideration we are being asked to show, in those cases, might  well have been shown earlier by the person who fears his  friends or family may read the Police Court News.  FOR CASH IN AN EMERGENCY - TRY THE B OF M FIRST.  r  When you need money in an emergency, you need it fast. That's  Why it is well: to remember you can save time, as well as money, by  first consulting Mr. Tom Larson, manager of the Gibsons Bank of  Montreal office.  ���   * *  Here is the story in one sentence. If you have a regular income  and are in a position to repay without overstraining yourself, Mr.  Larson can advance you a B of M Personal Loan for any useful  purpose. And if it's an emergency, you can count on him to come  to a decision without unnecessary delay.  A B of M Personal Loan costs only six per cent a year and can  he repaid in easy instalments. You pay interest only on the amount  lyou still owe, so that.if you borrow $100 and repay in monthly instalments over a year, the. cost is \ only 27 cents a month. You can  borrow more or less, for shorter or longer periods, at proportionately the same cost.  Remember, in financial emergency, make Mr. Larson's office  <reur first stop. He is accustomed to dealing confidentially with  people in time of emergency or opportunity, and he can be depended upon to help in every possible way. Advt  Editor, The Coast News,  "Somebody missed the Boat"  Your many questions about  the backwardness of this district  as applying to Agriculture may  well make one wonder and ask  "What do we do here?  There are many reasons for  detriment in agriculture these  days, but perhaps one of the  chief is that most of the local  young men have been engaged  to a greater extent in recent  years in industry at a higher  annual income than can be obtained from general or even  specified farming. Also to be remembered is the fact that we  who have passed the sunny side  of sixty years must take heed of  nature's sign posts warning us  /to go slower. This is not by any  means the only district finding  itself in the same dilemma ��� a  history of some parts of the  Fraser Valley depicts a picture  somewhat similar.  When the time comes, and it  may not be so very long, enthusiasm for the land, and for a  living from the land, will be on  a more optimistic level than it  is now, and when fuller realization of what real true co-opera- ���  tion means and what it can  accomplish, particularly in districts like this, we may then hear  less of the phrase "It cannot be  done."  Although you do not state, and  perhaps do not mean it, we feel  'in your Editorial a slight challenge to this Institute. To meet  that challenge, our records prove ,  that endeavors have been made  ���with some success;���for the  welfare of the members and the  Community, but just as it is with  many a family, the willing workers carry the load.  When   more   of   us.   put   our  shoulders to the wheel in real,  earnestness   and   hold   a   well  balanced optimism for the future  we shall be rewarded.  Mrs. M. LeFeuvre  Secretary  Howe Sound Farmers'  Institute  Ed's Note: The reference, as  the statement, in the Edlitorial  referred to above, was to the  lost opportunity in marketing  the produce, already available.  The challenge was there. Not to  the Farmers' Institute alone, but  to producers generally. That the  "Market" could succeed, even, if  modestly for a beginning, Was  demonstrated in previous operation. To our mind, it should have  been encouraged to grow.  Secret Cove  Mr. and Mrs. E.

Sports  Views  By  BIMiY. NICHOIjS  Up until this writing, house  competition had not started, but  no one has been inactive, either  playing touch yards, soccer, or  even a little baseball. We hope  to have house sports rolling  again soon.  Basketball is just around the  corner and the senior boys rep.  team seems to be fairly strong  although not quite as strong as  last year, but it's much too early  to tell how the team will pan  out.  The Cougars lost a lot of basketball player n big Bob Nygren,  who graduated last year (SNIFF  SNIFF) but we have a player  this year who may fill those  shoes. His name is Roger Evans  and he's tall and well-built and  will probably take up a 'lot -of  the slack left by last year's hoop  graduates. He came to Elphinstone from the Abbotsford High  School. Two of last year's junior  players, Pete Slinn and Bob  Douglas will help a lot too.  Social News  3Ry KAREN STOCKWELL.

There are now so many cars in  the town that for years has seen  only trucks, bulldozers, and bikes  that the building of a gas star  tion, parking lot and garage space  ' is  necessaiT-  Besides the changing of the  exterior town, and just as important, is the added recreation.  The Community Club is now rapidly planning its large and varied  program. Already a bowling  league has been organized and  since Sechelt has the only available alleys we will be adding to  another district's trade, that being just one of the ways. We hope  to have indoor sports, badminton, soccer and others; hobby  and handicraft groups and regu-j  lar dances.  The teenagers are not forgotten, for we hope to have a dance  floor and juke box.  All the residents will agree  that it seems strange to see the  truckers, cleaners and other business in Port Mellon, besides the  visitors just looking around our  small town. Even at that they  get lost and have to ask the  "natives" .for   directions.

There were swimming parties,  fishing parties, bon fires and  suppers at the beach, badminton  games and hikes. And one day  it was a drive to Pender  Harbour.        .       - '  In the'party were Hypo and  two local cousins and the guests.  Gentleman Cousin, hereafter referred to as G.C, Young Cousin,  (Y.C.), and Older Cousin, (O.C.).  The day was perfect, the kind  not usually in evidence when  there are visitors. The trunk  compartment was stuffed with  foods of all kinds for the day's  outing, including a juicy blackberry pie.  As the party was several hours  -late getting started and had already, eaten several meals that  day, they drove some distance  before stopping for lunch. After  the car left tKe blacktop and  ���commenced its effervescence  over the gravel pits, the cousin  who had baked the pie started  worrying about the blackberry  juice. Each time the car made  a particularly good landing she  shrieked for G.C. to stop the car  and examine the trunk compart-  Jment. This spasmodic form of  advance became monotonous and  (the party stopped and ate the  pie. :  In  due  course  they  reached  their destination. The^bays, inlets and lakes of that section of  the    Peninsula    sparkled    like  jewels in the brilliant sunshine.  Seacraft of all kinds came and  went about their business, fishermen poked lazily into the scenic  nooks and corners of the broken  coastline   and   travellers   from  distant ports were welcomed at  the docks and floats.   g^;  Where one local cousin would  point out" the perfection of  Nature's supreme handiwork,  Hypo digressed to the imperfections of man-made drains and  the inadequacy bi. garbage disposal.

It was not until they were on V.  their way home that the excite-  anent took place. They had stopped at an abandoned house at the  head of a lake and had poked  into its interesting interior, admired the view and wondered  at the history of the place, as  all visitors must. The car was  parked beside the* house ind the  O.C. advanced innocently to  enter it. So also, did a cow advance. O.C picked up speed. So,  also did the cow. O.C. then abandoned all thought of entering the  car, and to save her life, galloped* around it. So, also, did the  cow.  At this juncture the dog joined  the party and started after .the  O.C. which drove the cow^to  greattv sPeed.Also by this time,"  Y.C.�� who owned the dog, arrived on the scene and dashed  into the chace to save the dog.  the addition of another player  in; the act really speeded things  along and the women and animals passed and re-passed with  unbelievable velocity.  Now G.C. sauntered from the  house, lighting; a cigarette, and  was suddenly galvanized into  action. Just why he joined the  parade he could not say, but  afterwards hesaid he was afraid  O.C. might fall down and he  would step  on her in passing.

The blackberry pie, local  cousin, balancing at the edge of  the lake testing the water for  warmth, heard the commotion,  looked up and promptly toppled  into (the lake.'  The other local cousins watched  the entertainment for a while  and then said '.Shoo" to the cow,  which, having had its curiosity  satisfied, meandered back to the  pasture.  Hypo put her little black note  book back in her pocket. "Let's  go," she said.

S  i  Forest Safety Week  All forest industries have made  great  strides  in   improving   their  safety records over the past  decade. Much time and energy has  been  spent  to  control  the heavy  drain   of   human   suffering-and  the crippling effect that accidents  could have on the Province's productive capacity.  In 1947 the accident frequency  rate of the Pulp and Paper Industry was 30.86 but by steady,  yearly gains it has been reduced  to 14.80 for the year 1952.  Today every man in the forest  industries receives an education  in safety: Much of this education  and habit is carried home resulting in his home being a safer  and happier place to live.  The forest industries are' the  life blood of our Province, producing 54c out of every dollar.  Therefore, forest industries safety week concerns YOU . . . "play  safe." ,  Although every week is safety  week in the forest industries of  B.C., the special week of September 28 to October 2 has been  set aside to draw everyone's attention to safe living.  Arrangements For  Bus Stop  .. A committee of three commissioners of Gibsons met on Wednesday morning with George  Hopkins of the Sechelt Transport Ltd., to decide upon the  possibility of a bus stop.  Of the three areas viewed,  paced off, and discussed, it was  decided , that as a temporary  measure, the spot in front of  the Prewer property, presently  used as a parking area, just  north of the Bal Block, could  , be used. The Bus company will  erect the necessary signs marking off the stop.  Good Citizen award.  Continued from page  1  to  their continued well-being.  .
