Saturday proved somewhat  better, with trips being made  morning and afternoon. Sunday,  though the wind was still- blowing, two daytime and one evening crossings were made by the  Ferry.  BOATS    DAMAGED  Two fissing boats were-damaged by breaking their mooring  lines and beir.g tossedy about at  the wharf.  Floats broke loose in the Bay,  and had to be rescued, no small  task in the face of a howling  'SquamishI which roared down  the Sound.  Mr. H.E. Taylor, Indian Superintendent, ��f ^e ^e^rtn^nt of *  Immigration and Indian Affairs, was honoured  from the departments a farewell from the SecheJ^|^a^j and the  staff and pupils of the Sechelt Residential ^hool^MQ^day^evening;  at the school auditorium. ;���'��..  Everyone present was  aware  of the feeling of genuine friendship   and  respect  felt   for  Mr.  Taylor, and the regret that he  should be retiring from his post  'as.advisor to his Indian friends.  Mr. Taylor came to the Indian  Department    thirty    years    ago  from   the   R.C.M.P.,   and   since  1947   had   been   in   charge   of  Bands in the Vancouver Agency.

Father Nolan spoke on behalf  of the Oblate Fathers and: Sisters  of the Residential School, saying  how much they would miss Mr.  Taylor,   who   hr<d   always   been  'helpful" with their problems, and  interested in all the children in  the school. One of the little girls,  a pupil in the school, then- presented  Mr.   Taylor  with  a  gift  which was  a pocket book suitably lined.  The presentation from the  Sechelt Bands was a Sechelt  totem pole featuring tlie Thuri-  derBird, the Killer Wolf, and the  Black Fish. Also they gave him  a carved model war canoe.  Mrs. Wilfred John, of the  Native Sisterhood presented Mr.  Taylor with two woven trays, as  an expression of their Epprecia-  tion for ail he had done for  them.

This in spite of the fact that  at points such as Roberts Creek and Sechelt, only a moderate  sea was running, and that for only a short time during the  recentspell of weather.  To add to. the isolation, it was not possible to telephone, or  to send radio-phone messages.  Much talk has been heard, and thousands of words read,  upon the value of this area should* troubles other than weather  strike the land. To us, it would seem that an area that can be  so quickly and effectively isolated would be of small value in  such case. '  We do not take the stand that the Black Ball Ferry should  have run when the sea and storm were dangerous. That would  be folly. ,  Emergency passenger runs could be made from Vancouver  to Sechelt for example, Newspapers and mail cquld.be delivered  in the same way. That the telephone service being disrupted  could be prevented to a very great exibentby the use of under-  gix)und lines, has been argued for years. What caused the failure of the radiophone service is not as yet clear to us; but that  form of communication should have been reliable1 when ordinary forms were of no value.  It seems itoo, that as things were, surely the radio, which  continued^t6|6perate;^buld have bieeri'made use>pf ^o:^vise the  general public that the services .could-notyfe contihued.until  the w-ea&her moderated.      .

Yes, the new GMC is ready to go���ready So  bring you new heights in pulling power, carrying power, and staying power. It's handsomer  too with its massive redesigned front end, new  headlight spacing and driver-planned cabs..  But this year the GMC story is truly a power  story. In over 50 models you can choose from  the widest range of engines, transmissions  and axles on the market. From this brilliant  range of power units you can get the exact  combination to haul your specific loads with  the highest efficiency.  And, though new efficient power is a big  feature it is just one of the many which makes  GMC outstanding. There's over 70 newfeatures  in all���and every last one is designed to give  higher performance, greater profit, greater  comfort and convenience. Nothing has been  overlooked in the forward march to bring you  a truck that's filled with power, that's built  to take the heaviest loads over the roughest  going and come back for more.

Following medi-  ��� cal attention the little girl is able  to be about but it will be some  time before her legs and back  are completely healed.  Now that New Year's festivities have joined, the limbo of  best forgotten incidents, many  interesting stories are coming to  light. That is, so far as Roberts;  Creek is concerned. There is the  one about the man who deposited his wife at a party and then'  forgot to call for her again. He  has been unpopular at home  ever since. Another about a  gentleman who backed up, and  too far,, to let two ladies pass in  their car on, the -slippery road.  The ladies drove, home, got a  truck and returned to pull said  gentleman out of the ditch, that's  gallantry for you. The man who  forgot he was, escorting his  spouse to a dance and made like  a garage mechanic in his best  bib and tucker is also in tlie dog  house.  The bride of the* Gaines-Wallis  wedding on Saturday almost  found herself waiting at the  church, the groom chewing* his  nails and contemplating swimming from Horseshoe Bay. Ferry  service w<as abandoned Friday  due to weather conditions, leaving' several members of the  wedding party stranded in Vancouver. Instead of arriving  Friday evening, they appeared  at noon Saturday, for , the 2  o'clock wedding.  Some out of town guests were  Mr. and Mrs..A.W. Wallis, grandparents of the bride, L.E. Ross,  Misses Jac Johnson, Mary Jean  ��� Kennedy,    Jeanette     Farquhar,  ./Dorothy Stewart, Mr. and Mrs.  Murray Begg, Mrs. P. Banman,  .Mrs. M. Farquhar, Mr. and Mrs.  .A.

Correction  Firehall News  At a meeting on Monday night  at the Firehall Gibsons, the new  Coinmissibner,   Wally.  Peterson;  was present to discuss with the  Fi__*men- their   needs for   the  co_nin<g year. Peterson is on the  Committee jfjor matter_   relair  ing to Fire and Fire.yPrevention  for the Village of Gibsons Ldg.  The Firemen expressed their  desires and needs, which will be  presented at the next meeting  of the Commission;. One of the  items under discussion was that  of a light vehicle which would be  both  u_eful and economical in  the event of certain fires, and  which  could  be   used  for the  movement of certain of the light  equipment.  The new method of fighting  fire with 4Fog' was one of the  topics for the evening. The test  on the newest nozzle was tested  from the four inch hyfcLrant, and  proved entirely satisfactory.  T&e Firemen warn that during  this cold snap, hotter fires will  be burning and that all care  should be exercised, and that at  any time when fire strikes, call  the Fire Brigade at once. They  would rather take out all the  men and equipment for one  chimney fire than have a single  fire loss in the area.  The formation of a Fire Area  was discussed at the meeting.  More will be heard of this.  Iri connection with the Kinsmen's Polio Fund Drive, reported starting, wd last week reported  that approximately  twelve  hundred dollars had been, collected. This figure was for -trie" last  four years, includiiig" last year.  Therefor, the Kinsmeni wish   it  drawai to the attention of the  Public that last year's figure was  slightly    under   four   hundred  dollars,    according   to    George  Hunter.  W.

Saturday,    a    trigger    happy  amateur marksman,   winged an  eagle,    which    was   discovered'  flopping in the snow by the side  of the highway, unable to fly.

A large percentage of the more than 22,000 new  electrical services connected by the Commission  since 1945 are in rural areas.  Since rural electrification is essentially an outgrowth  of the distribution systems of a village, town or  city, the construction of country lines has been  gradual, but steady, as the financial conditions of  the respective power districts has permitted.
