COMPANY TOWNS  AND SALES TAX  y..,: The   government   shox^V^be  oncern   Legislature  In the 'debate following the Speech from the Throne opening  the present session of Legislature in Victoria, Tony Gargrave,  our MLA, has brought up a niumber of subjects which directly  concern the Sunshine Coast, as a part of his constituency. In his  speech of Tuesday, March 2nd, Mr. Gargrave brought up these  matters: - '      "  HIGHWAYS i ���   A three-year program of vincial government.

LOGGING SCALE BILLS  I urge the government to  speed up the issueing of scale  bills to small logging operations.  In recent months this delay has  c)ost some operators a lot of  money.  Polio Drive  Almost Complete  The campaign for funds to  combat "Polio", managed:by the  Kinsmenis Clubs ui,_ B.C., is  almost complete. FJrom the tin-  that have been placed in various  offices, stores and the like, ini  this area, the collections have  been somewhat higher than in  last year's campaign.  George Hunter, acting on behalf of the Kinsmen, has asked  that the envelopes you have  received fn the mail be returned  as soon as possible, this coming  week. * .'  As soon as the results have  been tabulated, a full statement  of receipts) and disbursements  will he published iny the Coast  to Company towns that do hot  receive any share of the sales  tax^y These grants might be  grants for recreational facilities.

In the matter, of wate  rates, the Council has taken steps to contact the lawyer who ha  represented the Public at the hearing before the Public Utilitie  Commission, to discover what can be done, if anything,, to have th  new Rates reduced. They are seeking his advice as to the possibil  ties, following a protest meeting held the week before.     .

James Sinclair, Minister of Fisheries,  asking him to meet the Council  in March, and in the interim the  Council is gathering all possible  information for the drafting of  a brief for presentation at that  time.  The Board of Trade has writ.  Hen a letter of congratulations  to Mr. Harry Jarmain, who was  recently honored by the Mission  City Board of Trade by appointing-him Honorary Secretary of  <hat body. . The work of Mr.  Jarmain, and his valued assistance to the three Boards of  Trad�� on the Peninsula were  recalled, as well as his activities in the Association of Boards  ���of Trade for British Columbia.  Mr. Jarmain is now over eighty  years of age.  At the General meeting, there  was a dsiscufeision, originating!  with the members of the joint  Boards of Trade Committee, of  an idea for publicizing the Sunshine Coast. A suggestion" was  mf'de of a contest among High-  school students for the best  emblem illustrative of Sunshine  Coast. This emblem was to onel and thence to the Sechelt High-  which could be usedyon banners, J way.

Commissioners Peterson  and Ballentine had little to say.  They felt that because . none  of those present Tiad the power  to act, but only to recommend  on the much discussed problem  of parking in Gibsons, to avoid  the crush of ferry traffic during  holiday week-ends and during:  the summer, that nothing muchl  had been achieved.  The recommendation of the  Village is that the Gower Point  Road, be made an arterial Highway, to join with the Pratt Road,  be held in Gibsons. The Board  agreed to help, and will do so by  finding quarters for the Powell  River team. The Union Steamship Company hp.s agreed toi  have its1 ship call ait Sechelt, and  the team will disembark there,  to save travel time on the way  to. the games.  Approval was   given  to  preT same purpose.  iTnrestrictcd wood-cutting has denuded Haiti's forest areas permitting extensive soil erosion.

Mr. Wilson has aranged for  Mr. Wade to have interviews  with people desiring either advice or professional services  with respect to properties and  boundaries.  Work Resumed On  Agamemnon Road  A progress report^ of sorts,  was received by Tony Gargrave,  MLA, from the Chief Engineer  of the Department of Public  Works, in the form of answers  to questions Mr. Gargrave had  asked about it.  The Highway Construction  Company, Ltd. have the contract j  for the road, in the amount of j  $731, 169.78 (The Department  supplies various materials, des  cribed as "culvert pipe etc.'.')  The specifications call for  clearing and grubbing of a 100-  ioot right of way, an finished  sub grade of thirty feet, a minimum of six inches of two-inch  gravel covered by a minimum  of six inches of 3A inch crushed  gravel.  Clearing and grubbing were  commenced last year, iand equipment was moved in in September, when installation of the  drainage structures, and grading  were commenced.  Clearing and grubbing are  sixty percent complete, 92,000  cubic yards ofrock and other  material have been moved.  Work has been resumed after!  tlie shut down, with fifty-eight  men on the ob.  Agamemnon Bay Road on Tuesday this week, Col. G. Paulin of.  the Black Ball Lines, and Mr J  N.  MacCallum,  Chief  Engineer  from the Department of Public,  Works,  together with the  con-J  tractors    from    Highway    Con-;  structioni,    Ltd.,    voiced    their  opinion   that   the   road   would]  likely   be   completed  this  fall.!  They   could   not  state   definite  dates.  According to Mr. MacCallum  the right of way runs through  difficult territory and there is  approximately seven miles of  almost straight rock work to be  done.  At the present time, according  to Highway Construction, they  have a large crew of men and  big machines on the job, but it  will still take all of summer and  early autumn to complete the  work.  Fisheries Boat  Testing In Howe Sound  On Wednesday, March 3rd,'  the Department of Fisheries'  boat, the "Investigator 1" with  Department biologists on board,  was trawling up and down the  Howe Sound from Gib'sons  Northward, and around the  Islands.  The Sea Floor is being tested  for signs of diminishing or increasing feeding and "nursery"  spots for shrimp and other fish.  The tests were conducted last  year, also.

Now that Spring is arriving
in earnest, the Tasella Shoppe
believes in fine feathers* for men,
as well, and has provided same
in those really smart and new
shirts they've) stocked. To go
with them, the niftiest in belts
and socks that the most youthfully spirited as well as the most
dressy among the masculine
group could desire. Oh, yes, I
almost forgot those bright new
slacks I saw on .the display rack,
too. j
Tired of cleaning the stove

you can get a cover for the

keeps the spatters in the pan
instead of on your shining stove
top, at Parkers ^Hardware. |
The Toggery Shop has neat
little skirts n colored corduroy,
plaids yet. Bias cut and all they
are, for-small girls. Cord jackets
for their Mothers, too. There
were smart kiddie's blazers, as

You know, I like this window

comes up with something like

Tiny tots wil be highly diverted, as are some not so tiny
folks I saw, by those Moo-Cow

Planning to do one of those

For finer sweaters, you ladies
can't do better than to look over
the stock at Irene's Dress and

other favorites are  there. !
Speaking of clothing. Was in

Wedding Held
In Gibsons Church
A very charming weding took
place in St. Mary's Church in
Gibsons on Saturday, February
27th, when Gilda Reitze of Gib-i
sons became the bride of Bruce
Symes of Vancouver. The Rev.
Father Kenney officiated at the
ceremony. i
The bride was lovely in white
satin, with a floor length veil.
Her Matron of Honor, Mrs. Irene
Sicotte wore net over charming
pink taffeta, while the Bridesmaid, Sheila Morgan was a delightful complement in turquoise
taffeta. ' |
The Groom was supported by
Jack Patterson,, best man^ from
Vancouver, and Herb Winn of
Gibsons was Usher. j
There was a pleasant reception held later in the Legion
Hall, were Mrs. Nutio in charge
of the catering, had laid a finely
decorated table, and served an
excellent lunch. i
Father Kenney proposed the
toast to the Bride, responded to
by the Groom. i
The Bride was the recipient of
many lovely gifts, which were
on view for all her friends and
well wishers. I
After the reception, a dance
was held, which continued enthusiastically until the wee
hours. One of the most 'o/iVhu-^
siastic dancers of all the guests
wais ninety year old Grannie
McEwen1, whose steps were as
neat and figures as graceful as
could be desired. j
