Reg was  rushed to Vancouver immediately by Graham's Ambulance  and Hunter's water taxi, accompanied    by    Dr;:  McColl - and  '������ JliE^iiii^j.;^  Kraft' at  the^ welding "shop at  Wilson Creek.  Reg was welding steel pile-  driver leads, part of a boom,  which tipped ] over, landing  " across Reg's neck and cjiest. He  had been gone from the office  about half. an hour when Kraft  went to the welding shop and  found him;" Kraft, with a helper,  managed to lift the heavy steel,  said to weigh over five hundred  pounds, off Reg, and get him  free. Reg was then unconscious^  and bleeding from nose and  mouth. He regained consciousness for a few minutes on Thursday night.  . Monday's {report gave very  encouraging news of Reg. According to L.S. Jackson, o. he  suffered no fractures, and hope-  to be released from Hospital in  from seven to ten days. Had the  weight .fallen a few inches lower  on his chest, the consequences  would have been much more  serious. As it is, Reg expects  to be his old self quite soon.  His trip to hospital was not  an easy one, either. There was  a sloppy sea, and the water taxi  hit a dead head, putting its  rudder out of commission. Steering, had to be done by means of  the engine.  The Roberts Creek PTA, dissatisfied with present inadequate  courses in study, Wednesday night sent in a resolution to> fbe?  Resolutions Committee to urge the Department of Education t&  revise the school curriculum.  Mrs.  C. Day, member of the  teaching   sJtaf^  of  Elphdnstone  Junior-Senior High School, was  a guest speaker. Mr. A.S. True-  man,   Principal,    and   Mrs.    J.  Glassford   also .contributed  Hf)  the   evening's   discussion.   The  subject  of curriculum was  discussed   veily   thoroughly.   Mrs.  Day, an experienced and popular  teacher,   answered   ably   to   all  questions  put to  her regarding  teaching problems.  Mrs. Day explained that the  existing two programmes, General and University, take care of  75 % of the pupils and leave  25 % stranded. These 25 % not  only lag far behind the class,  but (also prevent the teacher  from giving necessary attention  to the others who rapidly become bored if they are not working to the fullest extent of  their capabilities. .,  The University Programme  is for those pupils of high academic ability who,intend to go  oru to University* or further  training. The General programme is for the majority of  pupils (60%) who want to study  for some vocational field, or get      According to a report received  a sound background.in general,   froiri  h^   Tony/ was}' driving  ^knowledgerbef^re;.gohig^jdut to  work.       .'''y'-'y, "y. yy.yy$yy  The .PTA's resolution asked  for a third channerbf study,, a  Remedial Programme foi* pupils  who are unable to pass standardized achievement tests in basic  fundamentals'. If this third programme were adopted it would  mean that a number of pupils  'might overcome certain handicaps and move up to the General  or University Programmes. Also,  to quote the resolution, ..."It  shouid also offer to the pupil of  low   academic    ability    a   pro  gramme of handicraft activities;  where  he might  develop  some  skill that will be of. use to him  when   he  leaves  school,   or at  least, will develop in him good  work habits,  attention to  duty  and   an  interest  in   some  con--  structive activity."  .   It is most necessary, according;  to Mr. Trueman, that this type  of pupil use a text book especially written for his understaiicL-  ing. The text books used by the  other 75%   are  entirely beyondl.  his comprehension.  A hearty vote of thanks wagrr  given to these teachers who,.so--  evidently, have the welfare _>��'  all their pupils, our children,-  at heart.

'Bob' Stiller, a resident  of Gibsons and Grarjjtharns for  thirty years, passed away suddenly at his home in Powell  River, in his sixty-fourth year.  A full military funeral was  held on February 16th, under  the auspices of the Canadian  Legion, Post 164, Powell River.  Internment was in the Soldiers'  plot, Cranberry Lake Cemetery,  with the Rev. Russell officiating.  Mr. Stiller is survived by his  wife, Gertrude, two sons, Sidney and Ernest of New Westminster, one -daughter, Mrs. P.  O'Brien of Long Bay, and seven  gnandchldren. His brothers Tom  and Fred of Vancouver were  formerly residents of Gibsons  and Granthams -Landing, and  there are brothers and sisters  still living  in  England.  Powell River  Rasidents Face  Possible Isolation  With the; cutting\ off ��� of s���sr>  vices from Powell -liver to>  Vancouver, Powell River residents are extremely conceraedL  over the lack of facilities _��r  travel. There will be ho pos^  sibility of getting' cars out until  the Agamemnon Bay road is afc  least passable, and the Ferry  service is instituted, when the  Prinfcess Elaine is wlthdrawfct  from this service in April.  Boards of Trade on the Pea-  insula have added their voicsess  to that of Powell- River, iat  urging speed-up of the road  work from Agamemnon Bay to-  Pender Harbour.  Of the eleven miles of ro_K$'-  awaitinfj construction), only four*  .have Jbeen so far completed!-,  since the commencement <r_r  actual work five months ago.  The  CPR has  also cancelled "  services to the Gulf Islands. Ia  this   case,   however,   the   Coast  Ferries, Ltd., will take oyer the-  service from Steveston to pxsrfsr:  in  the  Gulf Islands.  This is a  private   company,    which   will'  operate four trips weekly daringr  the    winter    months    and    six:  during    the    summer' month��?.-  From June  first   to September-  twelfth, however, the CPR will  operate  the   "Printeess  -Olaine"  calling daily enroute to Sidnesr  and return, from Vancouver.

Box 128 Gibsons British Columbia.  ona  [IS  Ian  Of interest to everyone in British Columbia are the  <ehmiges planned by the Social Credit Government during the  coming1 session. Just before going to press last issue, we recieved a telegram (forwarded to us by mail from Vancouver,  please note,) from the executive assistant to the Premier. This  X>y the way, is a release to all newspapers, we are not unique.  This telegram quoted at some length several pertinent  excerpts from the Speech from the Throne, with which the  Xegislature is traditionally opened. In it is a digest of the  plans for the coming' session.  "The committee which was set up during last session to  study the possibility of redistribution of seats for this legislature will continue to operate during this session.'' We suggest  that this study is-long.overdue, because of the immense increase in the growth of the population of British Columbia,  _md the spreading out of developments in remote areas. No  doubt-the urban-centers will be first affected, but it is altogether likely that great cumbersome constituencies such as  that in which we here live and work, Mackenzie, will be. remodelled, in order to make it possible for the member to cover  Ms area more thoroughly.  Many1 people will rejoice, and many others will groan, over  {the proposal to commence extension of the PGE. The huge  Peace River Block, a country in itself, has long needed this link  to markets for its produce. When operations ceased during  the first world war on rail construction into thaifc area, promises were^nltfgiven the long suffering residents of that area  that they would be resumed on cessation of hostilities. Since  that time, from both s^des of thei nation, promises have been  broken arid rem_ide. Many pioneers who lived for the day when  >they could-ship a carload of grain or stock to the Vancouver  terminals, 'have ��6n_> ito their greater, reward. Their descendants may now perhaps reap ithe reward of their labours.  We are advised that for the PGE extension/an order for  fifty miles of steel rail has been placed in Britain. We applaud '  this decision heartily.  the perennial promise to coriitinue an enlarged program  -of Mjghway construction will meet with the approval of all,  How 'does this fit in with the previous "Pay as we go" policy ?  Reseiridino; of the damaging ten percent liquor tax placed  on club and club patrons will have an effect on urban institutions, arid -some rural ones, such as Legion clubs. The error  xwas in dreaming it up in the first instance.  *-     That Ithe sales tax is to be removed from children's clothing tfa��d fqotwealr seems a sensible move. If it can only be  removed now from items necessary to the well being, of tKe  smallTincome agetf people, there will be many hearty cheers.  However, theplar^to increase the Provincial Bonus paid to  Old-Age Pensioners, Blind Pensioners, and increases to those  -receiyjiig iScjqial Assistance may offset that to some extent/  A deduction is planned in Amusement Tax Rates. Naturally,  ���everyone' hopes' there! will1 be a large reduction. There will be  changes' in:-'the Hospital Insurance Services Act, Industrial  -Conciliation and Arbitration Act, and the Workmen's Compensation Act. We' are not-cfcbld just what changes, yet. And  many Other Acts are mentioned.  We. keep wondering quietly in our own small corner justv  how, with all the reductions, can the expansions and increases  foe-managed, and- if������ they can, where w���s the money .going  before?'It -"will be an interesting session to watch.  l^R tOWEST-COSt PERSONAL LOANS,  ������::..������-���'- SEE THE B OF M     ���' .  V ...... Such Loans Can be. Qbtmned For  Worthwhile Purposes  "There are many uses'for Personal Loans/' Douglas Smith,  inana'ger Of the local Bank of Montreal points out. "These may  lie secured for emergencies such as illness, or to buy some  ^vorth while*asset. In the latter case, your purchase increases  the value of your estate. And, too, you enjoy the benefit of it  while you are 'saving* for it with your monthly loan repayments.'' �����������������  The interest rate on a $100 loan is only one half of one  per cent per month. This means just 27 cents per month, when  the loan is repayable in monthly instalments over a period of  one year. Arid the interest charge remains the same in proportion, whether more or less is borrowed, for longer or shorter  periods.  Basically, the B of M makes its personal loans on just one  prineijple��� that you are able to repay without straining yourself financially.  If you need money for some useful purpose, why not drop  into the B of M to discuss your loan requirements with Mr.  Smith? You will find re will be pleased to assist you in any  way that he can. Arid, if your proposition is sound, you'll find  that there is money for you at the B of M. advt.  An Open Letter to the , Gibsons  Landing Board   of  Trade.  On Saturday, February 13th,  I was approached by Mr. Wood  of the Sunset Hardware, and  asked to speak that night at the  Board of Trade meeting1 concerning the disastrous results of  trawling and other matters per*  taining to the declining fishing  here in Howe Sound.  It is extremely unfortunate  that your President, Mr. Locke  Knowles declined to take the  matter up, when I originally  approiached him in January  1953, as at that time 'the West  Vancouver Board of Trade was  willing to take this matter up  with the Fisheries Department.  I believe that since that time  they have done so.  At the Legion Hall, last Saturday evening when I arrived,  your President Mr. Howies  again very deftly side tracked  the matter by allowing me only  fteo minutes spe'ak'irag time. 1  explained to him that in that  time I could barely cover the  correspondence. This subject is  too big and too important to  brush over so lightly, and so I  refused to speak at all, and'left  the hall.  I realize of course, as was  pointed out to me that there was  a very fuJLl program for the  evening, and time was at a premium. Hodever had I been given  >. thirty minutes, as I requested,  I would have stayed and given  a brief talk on the subject concerning Amendment 14 to the  Fisheries Act, and other matters  of vital concern to every resident of the District, either  directly  or  indirectly.  It is extremely r*egiretta(ble, .  the action* taken by your President, because?-Should" you now  wish to pursue this matter  further, I jam afraid it is. tod late,  as^Parliamenjt is now in session.  You would Iprobably^ have to  wait another year _or the next  amendment, to be implemented.  In the" meantime you mjay have*  jeopardized' all chance of having  the trawls jeliminated from, this  ���v    ���������   ������   ������l-.-y ���*��� /���'''���''������, ������-,������  area.     .    . f ;. y,/,-... .y ���.,.,.  I personally; sub^  merit Noi $<k-~ and I biave every  reason to ^tfeieye this legislation  will be enaeted. I shall be greatly surprised if it does not pass.  However, ��� ��syT: pointed but to the  Fisheries "iDepartmerit in my  britef, this legislation is only one  step in they right direction, and  will not of ; itself v completely  solve the situation.  As business people with capital invested in numerous enterprises in this area, I must say  that I am Mejefyly ^shocked and  surprised aft the apathy shown  in the matter.  Fishing has been and still is  an important factor in the  economy of- this village and district, but itis, a' declining asset,  and unless |steps are * tafceh and  quickly to I safeguard- this: heritage, it wiip: soon be lost.  ' I iam also surprised that there .  is no genuine all round Fisherman a  member  Of  this  Board,  ,..������������ t<    ������-....-���: .       .  preferably ;bn the executive.  There are certain things in  the Fishing; Industry shaping up  at the present tiane that will go  into effect \ this year, that will  h���ve dr'astifc.' effect on the1 economy of thfs Village.  I hope to publish an article,  or series of articles, in the Coast  News at an early date pertaining  to these matters.  Commercial  Fisherman,  "Harold Fearn  Gibsons,   B.C."

POSTAL   SURVEY  MAY DELAY MAIL  Last week, and part of this  week, 'across Canada, the smaller post offices have been required to make a survey of mail,  both rural and -general, that  passes through the office each  day. Naturally this adds to the  work of the Postal Staff, and  causes some slight delay in the  final sorting. The public is advised of the matter so that they  may exercise due forbearance.  It is expected that there will  be two more, of these in the  coining season, and the Posit  master will try to notify everyone, should, he receive word in  time to do so.  INDEMNITIES  To the' Editor of the Coast News.  Referring   to   my   letter   published in the Coast News' of Feb.  18th  issue,   I   wish  to  make   a  slight corrtectiom dn the total  income for each cabinet Minister  for the years 1949 ��� 1953.  I believe that this should read  $20,000 yearly, and not, $22,000  as quoted by me.  Robt.   Macnicol.

When parents tat the  meeting expressed desire to  have-both Cub and Scout groups  at the Creek, the PTA accepted  their sponsorship and set up the  committee.  The Scout movement started  in England in 1907 and since  has spread' to 99 countries. In  ithe .world today there are some  5,000,000 Scouts of which more  than 140,000- -are in Canada.  Twelvei reasons why a boy  should join the Scouts are given  thus: Scouting fills a boy's spare  time, gives a boy character, is  ���training in citizenship, gives, a  boy opportuni^eis of service,  makes a boy handy, gives him  a sense- of honour and loyolty,  teaches a boy self reliance, gives  him health, finds out a boy's  natural giifts, gives him happiness, widens a boy's outlook,  and will make a man of your  boy.  The Scout promise is: On my  honour I promise that I will do  my best: To do my duty to God,  and  the. Queen,  to  help  other  Thursday, February 25,  1954    The  Coast News  people at all times and to obey  the Scout Lav/.
