Phone Gibsons 45W'  Box 128 Gibsons British Columbia  Roberts Creek  ound-up  ona  Driver's Teste  The interest taken in 'the. Driving Tests on the Peninsula  was quite enlightening. It involved a large percentage of  the drivers in the area, since most of the drivers had either  received 'Restricted' licenses on the Peninsula from the local  staff of the R.C.M.P., and had not taken their regular tests  elsewhere, or had not taken a driver's test within the past  five years.  We found the tests were mostly common sense, and did  not begin in severity with, some tests taken elsewhere, and  in other circumstances.  Recognition .of signs, and correct Interpretation of them  seemed very simple, b_t while taking ours, we almost missed  a point because of recalling an odd accident some years ago  because the driver did not read English. A motorist, driving  with his wife and small children, was proceeding into the  Peace.River country. At Mirror Landing, known as Smith, in  Railroading circles, one crosses the Athabaska River by  Ferry.-Alt that point, the hills are steep, and there was a  sharp curve just above the last slope to the ferry. Two road  signs warned of the hill and a ,'Caution, Ferry Crossing' was  planted just at the top of the last slope.  This driver drove down the hill at cruising speed, and  straight into the river. The ferry crew saw this happen, but  were too far out in the stream to give assistance. Fortunately  three or four men were at work on a scow near by, and were  able to save the family. They suffered chills and shock, lost  some of their possessions, and the cost of putting the car  back into driving shape was considerable.  A knowledge of the meaning of road signs would have  saved all that.  .These tests serve to make the driver conscious of the  fact that there is real meaning" in signs, that drivers' signals  are necessary, and that observance of driving conduct regulations may save accidents or worse, "  To those who passed the tesJts properly, our congratulation's, and a hope that their everyday driving reflects their  knowlege. To those who didn't, try again. ^..  by. Madge Newman  Miss Jac Johnson was home  from Vancouver for the week  end and .spent it riding around  the coun'tiry on a foor-footed.  friend.

FRANK SOLNIK  Phone 48 C Sechelt j  WELFARE SERVICE  [ I would suggest that the welfare bodies such as the  VON,'when/the  temerature  dropped'  The Clean-up Campaign  During-one of our recent sallies about the Village of  Gibsons, we observed that the local populace had already  made large strides towards a clean-up of their own private  properties, and many of them were looking quite spruce,  . even before the Village Commission came up with their campaign. Others spurred on to a little effort by the news that  there was a recognized clean-up week, were out tidying and  repairing.  The saddest part of the week, to us, was the defeat of the  effonfes of many by the neighboring properties, some perma-  Jiently vacant. Others temporarily so, being in a' state far  worse .than Nature ever left them.  Huge masses of Himalaj'as growing in almost impena-  trable tangles, accumulations of rubbish, old tree-snags,  sagging fences and a general air of hopeless neglect pervades  these empty places. Next door, the property owner may have  tidy yard or garden, neat fences and a fresh paint job. As  the season advances, 'the blackberries invade the yard, a snag  , may fall across and break the fence. The rubbish is temporarily overgrown, but it is still there. This gives little en-  : couragenient to the neighbor witfch tidy habits, particularly  if he or she is physically unable to care for more than his  own lot.  We have been asked to give a word of warning in relation  -,to.a campaign against raits. If laying out poispiis, we have  been.asked to warn against indiscriminate use of these items.  and' to suggest;that if used, poisons should not be placed  j where pets have access to them.

LITERATURE AND  SMOKING  The letter from the' Roberts  Creek PTA to the respective  Boards of Trade at Sechelt and  Gibsons re: the salacious literature and smoking, etc.,.jntJj^J  High school ��� Why'- was ' 'it rioF''  sent to the School Boards as  well? They represent the people.  It is their duty to attend to  these complaints. The spectacle  of one of our Medicos and a  teacher getting up at a Board  of Trade meeting and suggesting  that a smoking lounge be provided in the school, is, to say  the least, not very edifying.  We could go one step further  and suggest that the School  Board get a cocktail license for  the enervated students.  The Teacher's remarks were  concerned with the literature,  and using two Mickey Spillane  books as samples, decided, that  as the Bible and Shakespeare  were some what salacious, then  it was quite alright to take Mr.  Spillane's outpourings for a  literary thesis.  I am leaving this matter in  they hands of your readers for  comment.  " C.Y. NICAL".  to "a chilly 20.2 degrees on  March 28th. Further to the cold  facts, there were 23 days during  March which had temperatures  below freezing. February of this  year could boast only 9 days  with temperatures below freezing, and a paltry 26.1 degrees  for.its   lowest temperature.  Looking now to the dry side,  March had only 1.92 inches of  precipitation^ or less than half  its normal share. There were  only 12 days with precipitation,  four of Which saw snow fall in  mild doses. Three/days have  passed in April and already we  have nearly half the March total  for rainfal, whirh gives us some  idea as to the dryness of March  and perhaps the over dampness  of April. .

It's an appropriate calling  card for the man who- is better  the past 9V> years he lias made  known to the CBC radio audience as tne B.C. Gardener. In  innumerable fiiJends with 'his  valuable gardening hints delivered in a chatty, informal style  on Sunday mornings at 10:00  a.m.  It isn't only adults who like  his broadcasts. He says one of  his keenest listeners is his three-  year-old grandson, who can  already differentiate between  flowers although his pronunciation ("ganiums" and "naprag-;  ons") leave something to be  desired.  ' Word has come from $he Secretary of the Fall Fair Committee  to the effect that plans are well  under, way for the Annual Fall  Fair in Gibsons.  There will be some  change^,  a few   deletions^ and some  additions to the classes of entries  for   this. year,   mostly   in  .the  vegetable    arid   flower   groups,  These changes are minor, some  items that have not been entered  for   several   years    are    being  j_eleted, some flower groups are;  being changed jslighitly.  , All   in  all,  the  list of  items  that  may be  shown is a  large  and    comprehensive    one,    and j  there  are   classes  for everyone |  of the Peninsula. j  It is hoped this year for a ���  larger and more varied list of  entries than there were last  year, and that more people from  the area generally will compete  Everyone who has a garden, a  field, a flock, or a household  will find something that is  "better and bigger" than that  of his friends, and which really  ought to win a blue ribbon. The  only way this can be proven is  to enter it. .  Those who draw, paint, spin,  weave, knit, sew or embroider  will find plenty of classes they  can enter.  Now is the time to .begin planning an exhibit. Additions can  be made as late as two days  before the Flair M something  else seems to be crying out to  be shown.  A radish, a pot of jam, a loaf  of bread or a pie, a dozen eggs  or a chicken may be your winning exhibit, but be sure to plan  to enter something in the Howe  Sound Fall Fair, at Gibsons.
