Masons gathered from all  areas, fronT Port Mellon on to  Sechelt, and guests hailed from  Powell River, froni the Prairies  and from Scotland itself.  A very delightful supper wasr  prepared by D.J. Smith of Gibsons, who was temporarily excused from his Masonic Duties  for the evening ini order to  manage this task. The traditional Haggis was piped in by Eric  Thomson, of Hopkins Landing  and borne aloft by Bob Cummins of Robert Creek.  Gordon   Bryant   of   Gibs<ons  acted -as i chairman. The Ode to  the/Ha&gis, was  given   by  Bill  Sjuthe^'nd' of- Gibsons." Robert  .MacdKl gave a very pleasing  "' ag$8|fe to 'the Immortal Mem-y  ory.  James Drummond  toasted-  the'guests, Capt. Metcalfe'toast-'  ed the Highlands, and Magistrate  Andy "Johnston  spoke   for  the  Masons, thanking all those who  had assisted in preparations for  the event.  Scottish music was provided  by Mr. Smith, with his record  player.  It was described afterwards  by one of the guests as one of  the nicest, most enjoyable  Burn's Suppers he had attended.  Celebrate  Sechelt Indian  9.  3  For Breakwater  The Sechelt Indians have  presented a brief to the Sechelt  Board ofTrade, m the form of  a letter to E. Pearson, asking  for their support in an effort  to secure a breakwater at Trail  Bay, between Selma Park and  Sechelt.  The Indians claim losses of  several thousand dollars to  their fishing boats, because of  lack of adequate shelter. The  only place available to them for  shelter near their homes is in  Porpoise Bay which necessitates  a long and harzardous trip  around through the Skookum  Chuck, and once the 'boats are  in there for shelter, they are;  practically., tied up for the  winter months, as it is impractical for them to take advantage  of short spells of good weather  for fishing.   :  The Board of. Trade listened  with favor to the proposal, and  have promisea^their 'support.  ' On Saturday, February 6th,  : masses of Iris, Roses; Carnations  and daffodils graced the spac^  ious rooms of the home of Mr.'  and Mr. August Crucilfon the  occasion of their Silver Wedding  A large number of friends called  to pay their refepects to this  -popular couple.

There are two sons, Lawrence and Rudy. '  Mr. and Mrs. Gus Crucil of  Duncan came up for the occasion,  also Mr. and Mrs Bill Gibbons.

In part, he wrote:  "On a recent visit )to Sechelt^  I had the privilege of inspecting  the Secheli^ Fire Brigade equip-  ment I was very much impressed with what I saw, and with  your explanation of the equipment.  "There are very few municipalities which, proportionate  to their population, can equal  the equipment of your brigade.

Manned as it is by keen, well-  trained voluntary firemen, I feel  that the fire problem of the  Sechelt area is well taken care  of." The letter was signed by  "F.V. Heakes, Co-Ordinator."

Each season1 since coming to the Peninsula, few enough  to generalize upon, we admit, we have seen the annual winter  slump in employment, and the consequent overall slackening  in business. <  We have been, assured thait nothing can be done. Logging  always has to close, fishing always has an off season. Ergo-  the whole Peninsula must always have one.  Everyone seems to be waiting for "something to happen"  or for " someone to come", to bring some miraculous cure.  Surely there are enough sound-headed people on the Sunshine Coast who can find a way out of this annual winter  sadness. Everyone knows, and will tell you at length, that  year-round industry, with year-round payroll is the only solution. Half-hearted, often unfinshed, discussions take place in  many a corner abouifc the problem, but there is no action. ,  If it is that simple, why is something not done about it?  The term ''Cottage Industry" conveys partly something  which can be done. There are a number of items tha�� could be  produced here, all revenue producing, some seasonal, others  steady.  1. There has been some talk of the production of Charcoal on the Peninsula. That could provide year-round employment for a few men. The product has a ready market. Alright.  That will help .some.   ������  2. Enlargement of the scope of the Co-operative Canning  venture to embrace the processing of more small fruits, as  well as the popular strawberry jani,> and including the canning  of the many vegetables grown in the community, as well as  the processing of poultry, fish arid meats, would greatly extend the operating season and the overall income from the  Cannery.  3. The woods on the Peninsula abound in species of hard  and semi-hard woods. How much enterprise is necessary to7  create furniture and household articles of wood, which would  have a limiited market on the Peninsula, and a larger one elsewhere? .... '  4. Local clay fires extremely well for the production of  tile and flower pots, and similar'items of pottery. Inhere is ''a .  small but permanent market for this type of product.  These are but a tiny few of! the things that could be produced here, and marketed under a distinciavely local name,  and could be ma'de to grow from modest beginnings to something well worth"while*, with good management and'proper  marketing. " ������- :  Let us next consider what can be done with purely ^processing activity, y^ith raw or partly finished-materials from  elsewhere.  1. Is there anything wrong with the making, pf clothes- a  in some quantity? How about a good line of Perfder Pants,-  Sechelt Shirts, or Gibsons Garments? A small battery of sewing machines, bolts of cloith and a small staff of willing work- v  ers, and who knows how far one might go?  2. Here's another more simple suggestion. Why not process wool? True, there isn't much produced locally, but there  would soon be more, and in any event, there's plenty as close  as Vancouver Island-Shipping costs are noti large on this item.  Why send all the wool East, and then bring it back again? Why  not do it here. Be willing to start modestly, and grow with the  market one wins."   .��-' *'  There should be no lack of inventiveness and adventurous-  ness in the descendents pf pioneers such as people this area.  Cannot a small amount of. capital be interested to .start:  one or two of these ideas, and see isfc grow? They should be  started modestly, with enough backing, however, to see them,-  properly productive, and we are sure that any one of them  would succeed beyond even our expectations.  ROBERTS CREEK PTA  DANCE POSTPONED  .From Feb. 13th  TO MARCH 13th  Account .Other Entertainment On Same Date  TRANSPORTATION  To the Editor of the Coast News.  Since critiscism of the Sechelt  transportation has become the  order of the day, may I suggest  that some of the limelight be  focused upon the Black Ball  Ferry .Co.     .  This link with the mainland  which was-to be such a boon to  the Peninsula has turned out  to be more .of a headache than  anything else.  Our late lamented government, with more than its usual  show of shortsightedness, gave  this ferry company a twenty-  five year franchise and complete  freedom to ,do as, *t pleased,  which is what it has been doing  ever since "the small original  company wa$; bought out.  The first ^summer t&e new;  transportation scheme was inaugurated, trouble began. The  ferries weW" never on time,  Passengers standing by the roadside for hours, and cars lined  up in all directions.  The next season, when we  might reasonably expect s r_e  improvement, things were i it  much bettetf. True, the ferric -  managed to^%eep fairly well to  their time scfiedule, but-the congestion of traffic in Gibsons was  worse than fever, and this with  one spare fe^ry standing idle at  the dock,, instead of making  extra trips tp take care of the ;y  excess cars.  Now, during this last spell of  winter weather, we have had  no transportation at all. Nobody  would expect the flat bottomed  car ferries to risk human lives  by trying to make their trips  in the face pf such seas as we  have had this, last month, but  the. very least a transportation  company such as the Black Ball  could havey<|one, was to grange  for the charter of a small boat  like pur latelMachigonne, which  could hayej undertaken the  rough jourjney and thereby  Saved many Peninsula residents  serious inconveniences.  I would like to suggest that  the boards o_ trade and improvement associations in different  parts of the; Peninsula take this  matter up, and see if it. is not  possible tp prevent a recurrence  of this sort|pf thing.      ��� <.  As for the Sechelt bus trans--  portation, itv is as far ahead of  the Peninsula as the Black.Ball  ferry company is behind it. -       , ���  ���   The busses.are modern, warm .  and comfortibjte, and the drivers  most  efficigpti  The   only '������ criti- .  cismpne .could majte. is that Mr..  Lawrence * ^triyes  too   hard , to  maintain hislschedule in theface  of rather appalling ..circumstances. One round trip per day in.  the  bad weather  might prove  to be a salutary  lesson to his  'detractors.   |  Margaret M.

SALARY  INCREASE  To the Editor of the Coast News.6  I would like to take exception  to your Editorial in the last  issue of the Coast News, in.  ���which you support the action, of  the members of Parliament in  raising their own salaries.  According to your reasoning  the cost of living for M.Ps.. has  gone up to the extent of $4,000  dollars a year; but for the old  age pensioner's who have to exist  on a pittance of $50 per month,  it apparently hasn't gone up at  all, and surely the arduous task  of sitting in session for six  months of ,the year does not  justify this ridiculous increase,  when the disabled veteran, ^ his  whole lifey y and future hopes  blasted through tlie more ar-'  duous task of defending his  country can expect nothing  more   than   a  mere   token   ac  knowledgement.

V&gftWZ  To an already fine gasoline,  Standard of B.C. scientists have  added a safeguard against rust  and corrosion, the scourge of  the modern automobile engine.  Motorists throughout Canada  and the United States pay more  than^$100,000,000 a, year to  replace and repair^ fuel pumps,  carburetors, fuel line^ and other  valuable engine parts.  The fuel system of your engine is positiveSy protected against  rust arid corrosion when you drive with the New Improved  CHEVRON SUPREME GASOLINE.  Here's how it works: There is water condensation wherever  gasoline is stored in metal tanks. This- rusts and corrodes  metal. Now, with Standard of B;G.'s new anti-rust additive  X-36A, the problem no longer exists because the surface  of the metal is covered with a thin protective film. IT  AUTOMATICALLY SEALS OFF RUST WHILE YOU  DRIVE. WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU: You no longer  face the prospect of repairs to fuel, pumps, carburetors,  fuel lines and other engine parts, due to rust. You get a  cleaner fuel," free from storage tank impurities. Yes, improved  Chevron Supreme Gasoline with the anti-rust additive is  your guarantee of better, more economical motoring.

"    "T"^  The first Granville St. Bridge  was built in 1888, a wooden  structure, almost . entirely of  pilings, with a deck on top. This,  at that date, cost $16,000.  The second bridge built in  1909, was erected at a cost of  $525,692.  The new structure, ��� with  cloverleaf entrances and exits,  has been built at a. cost of  '$16,500^000. Entjrnce imay fee  gained from Howe, Granville  and Seymour streets, and from  -Hemldckv Granville^ Fir5 and  Fourth. "_,.  In November, 1908* the question of a new bridge came  before the city council, A. certain  man, the;. late: W.W. ^Winn,  though not an alderman, fought  vigorously for this, .although he  had first opposed the idea. None  of the members wished to support the expenditure for a new  steel structure, feeling that with  elections, ,c6min_; soon, -the cost  might prove an adverse factor  in the" voting. Consequently, the  to save the city $45,000 in the  Hanbury property at the south  end of the bridge. This was reclaimed land, and actually belonged to the city.  Mr. Winn was never actually  a member of the city council,  although he did run for office  later, as is shown by a card still  in his... son's possession, which  sets . forth his campaign principles. This was in 1910 or 1911.  The card had been in the possession of -Mr. S.G.  Armour of  B. W. M.

To define the boundaries of  what was then Ward Six: It  ran from Ontario.St. to Alma  Road, and from the Water front  to 16th Avenue..  Mr. MacMillan tried to refuse  these importunate gentlemen,  but finally, to dismiss them at  one in the morning, he agreed  to stand for Ward Six, provided  Winn and' Sangster could get  two - hundred signatures as  pledges to .vote for him in the  forthcoming election.

Sechelt  GUY FAWKES  Sir:  I wonder if you would care to  insert the following in your  valuable paper, for the interest  of its readers.  A Boat, a Boat,.a-tolthe Ferry,  An'  We'll be Drinking Wine  and .Sherry.  There is a deed of sale made  oh  August  1st,   1592, -still pre-  ' served in the City of York, after  being  lost  sight   of   for   three  hundred -years. It concerns "Guy  Fawkes, of the cittie of Yorke,  geatilman,  and Ahrie   Skipseyo  of   Ciiftonfe in   the   countie   of  York, Spinster," arid deals with  "a message, tenement, or farme-  holde,   with   the  appurteiances  and a garthe or gardine, lyenge  and  being   in   Cliftone   iri  the  Gountie   of  York)e."   With   this  messuage  went   "arrable   land,  medowe    grounde    thre    inges  endCs, tow croftefe or lees, a pitt  land," part of "a flatt called the  Laires,   a .hungrie  land  and  a  small strip neare the newe windmill."  The   prppjerty   came  to   Guy  from his father, Eward Fawkes,  notary and advocate of the Consistory Court,  who,  in spite  of  being a lawyer, left no will. The  small  property   played  an  important part in Guy's life. His  mother married a second time,  her   second  huJlb and  being  "Dionis     Baynebrigge,     gentil-  man,"   of   Scotoh,   near   York.  Guy had been brought up a pro-  testant, but came at an; early age  under the influence of his stepfather who was a Roman Catholic.  At the age of 22 years, Guy  sold the estate to Anne Skip-  seye for twenty nine pounds,  thirteen shillings and fourpence,  at todays money y value about  six hundred pounds. y;  Guy became a great worker  for the Catholic cause, serving  in the Spanisb^army in;thevLow���  Countries, arid, bein_\ little  known in London, was picked  for the job of, blowing up the  Houlses of Parlianient. The  Gentleman, under the name of  Johri Johnsont, hired himself out  as a; manservant, and in this  menial capacity, was found near,  his store, of gunpowder, "in a  vaulte or .Cellar," in the early  xicurs of November 5th, 1605.  With hini were "barres of iron  and faggottes and feuch like  stuffe that were laid upbni trie  .Barrells to have blown up the  Howse."  Edward J. Atlee.  By ARIES  L.A. to the Canadian Legion  140, Jield their regular meeting  in the evening last month, to  make it possible for the wives  of young veteran's, who find it  difficult to make the afternoon  meetings, to attend. It was decided however to hold future  meetings as usual in the afternoon, but the time will be  changed to 2 p.m.. This will  allow older people who do not  care for the evening meeting  to participate in Legion activities.::."    y-���:.-. ..> ��� -���;./.   ��� * -  Provision will be made for  the children to be taken care of  during this time at the Hall, and  Weather - Wise  by R.F. Kennett  JANUARY   WEATHER  Winter was ushered in to Gib-.  sons with a howling "squamish",  . driving  snow,  and bitter  cold.  As a result, fuel   bills soared,  transportation    slowed    to     a  crawl,   and  much  damage  was  evident   throughout   the   coast.  On  the   lighter   side��   children  holidayed from school and muffs  and sleighs, were the rig of the  day from mid January. .-  Looking over the cold hard  facts for January we observe  that 36.3 incees of snow fell on  13 days during the month. Rain  fell on 12 days for a total of 4.52  inches. Total precipitation equalled 8.15 inches, it is interesting  to note that 21 days during the  month had freezing temperatures, and 8 days of which, the  temperature never rose above  the freezing point. January 20th  was the coldest day with a  shivering 12.4 degrees above  zero. Mean temperature for the  month was.a frigid 32.1 degrees.  At this) writing; the snows  have thawed, appreciably and  the elements have returned to  more normaj proportions, but>  some winter.,iweatherj, must be  expected  during  February. ;  also a transportation fund has  been started to help members  who come from long distances,  with part of their expenses.  The L.A. plans to hold their  annual Shamrock Tea jDn  March   16th.  The    Guild    of    St:    Hilda's  Anglican   Church   vv/-ll   hold, a  friendship  tea at  their regular  meeting on February 10th. Mrs.  Beney is general convenor. The  Tea will be in the form of a cup  and  sauber   shower.!;-Proceeds.'  will supplement the  furnishing  of the kitchen of the Parish Hall.  We have a good report oh the  activities  of  the  Sechelt  PTA.  Hot   _uch>es   are   being served  : every day to approximately 75  children.   Mr.   Parsons   of   the  Sechelt   Theatre   will   have   a*  matinee for the children every  week,   starting   February   6th.  Pictures  have  beeri. ychbsen  to  conform   to   PTA   and   family  standards. Members ol the PTA  are busy repairing the slides in  the  playground   and f repairing  the P.A. System. The main project this year is the Elementary  Scholarship Fund.    ' '  We really take our hats off  to our native brothers when it  comes to the way they"'look after  their old people. Molly Dixon  who is supposed to be almost  one hundred years old and has  been a very sick old lady for  some time, is reported to" be  ver low. She has had every care  and attention, staying with. a  young nephew and his wife, Mr.  and Mrs. Frank August. It is  quite an effort to look: after ond  so old and helpless,* but it is  being done without hbpe of reward, and without fanfare.  Mrs. Charles Ralston has gone  Thursday, February  11,   1954   Tlie Coast News  to  Vancouver  for  a  few  days.  Glad to hear (Mr. Ralston is  home  from hospital.
