 J i  :\ I   !  tT  Provincial Library  Victoria, 3. C.  Eighth Year of Publication.  More Parents  Attend Back  To School Night  On Wednesday evening last,  Elphinstone High School was  fully occupied. Every class room  was busy with what (were likely  the most interested "Students"  in- attendance during the year.:  Parents and other interested  adults attended the classes, to  learn in a few minutes in each  room something of what their  children study during the year.  They met the teachers, who-  handled the sessions admirably,  and during the final period,  after "lunch attended a ' short  session or* Choosing Subjects  for study.  The   subjects   necessary   for  University Entrance and1 for the  General courses were outlined,  and it wast explained just how  the   student   should   begin   ini  Grade Nine with such choices.  The necessiary adjustments that  could be,made for a student in  Ithe General courses who wishes  ifco change arid enter University  in Grade eleven, for example,  were also demonstrated.  Many parent�� found the demonstrations of grading the stu-  ctenits of interest, and the* mark- i  ing of report cards.  During the Lunch hour, when  the .." students" occupied the  bleachers in the gym, there was  ta demonstration of- Basketball  by Junior pupils, refereed and  coached by Senior students.  During the evening, High-  school Students acted as guides,  directing the parents to various  classrooms, and acting as traffic  directors in the school yard. It  was surprising how many adultsi  had to ibe directed to park their  cars at the rear of the building,  in yspiteof..ttie signs; di^ayed.

All in all, this Back-to-school  night, as part of the Education  Week program, does a lot to  keep the parents informed, and  to clear many problems in con  nection with the schooling of  their children.  TJiose present had come from  almost every part of the Peninsula, as their children do, to  become acquainted with the  Peninsula's High School.  During the day, many parents  attended classes in the Elerhen-  itary Schools of the area, and  found! those sessions aijso of great  interest.  They observed their own  children in their own classes,  iand met the teacher in charge.  The methods of teaching were  ably demonstrated in a practical  way..  It was noticed that the attendance at these gatherings was  greater than in either of the  past two years, arid that the  interest seemed keener.

Principal purpose of the meeting was to hold an election of  officers, but this was soon dispensed with when a ^notion  from the floor that last year's  of^ce^s) remain -another year,  met with the instant approval  of the meeting.  There was one difference however, in that a post of Recording  Secretary was) addend.:Mrs. Gliass-  ford was nominated arid unanimously elected.  The list of officers for 1954  reads: Walter Nygren. President;  George Hill, Vice President;  Morry Dupray, Secretary-Treasurer; Mrs. Glassford, Recording  Secretary; Cpl.

From  these reports we receive our  forecasts.  The talk was well received,  and much credit is due for his  efforts.  There is a very definite movement to promote the use and  sale of "Made in B.C. Products".  The Secretary ha)s written to  ask if a man and a display could  be sent heret fpr the annual  Fair.  William Sutherland, speaking  on behalf of the farmers, spoke  of Ihe fact that something of a  constructive nature should be  done about an overall survey  of available lands and their  particular suitability for agriculture, and of what types. He  was appointed Chairman of an  Agricultural Committee to look  into the matter.  Robert Burns spoke at some  length on farming and the local  Cannery.  The Secretary was instructed  to write to the Department of  Lands in Victoria, in support of  the Blackball's Application, for  foreshore rights to their new filL  east of the^present Dock.  A letter was also to be written  to the Hon. James Sinclair, re-  thie   local  Breakwater  em; ianla;*: orr-f^ir%-^problems in our local waters.  J. Drummond Sr. was chosen  delegate to the Annual meeting  of the Associated Boards of  Trade in B.C. in New Westminster, March 24th.  Stan AHibone was chosen  delegate to approach local businesses  regarding  whether they  would   remain   open   on   Good  Friday or Eater Monday.  Following receipt of a letter  from the Roberts Creek PTA,  there was considerable discussion on the promiscuous use,  among school children, of liquor  and cigarettes.  The general opinion finally  seemed to be that the agencies  concerned most in the' control  of this situation were the  parents, the PTA, the School  Board and the teachers. The  Board will investigate the Act  dealing with the sale of cigarettes to minors.  Attending the' meeting from  Port Mellon were D. Williamson  and Fred Bancroft.  Catering  for   the   g&thering ,  was Danny Smith of .'the Ridge  way   Motel,   with   his   usual  success.

According to the Budget Highlights,  Premier Bennett is having a wonderful time juggling- figures.

" ���  Having collected premiums for hospitalization, at considerable  expense  to  the  Province,  the  Government  now  LETTER, MISLEADING.  In your Last issue, you published a letter captioned "Pacific  Salmon", signed LSJ. This letter  is misleading, and at varierice  with the facts.  First, the device mentioned of  sucking the fish into a boat is  true to a point, but its capabili:  ties in regard to salmon is doubtful.  Second, The item, concerning  the Federal Government Research Department is a matter  of opinion, and open to question.  As a full-time experiencd fisherman, I have some definite  opinions, and facts to substantiate them.  Third, Paragraph 3, is whe^e  LSJ abandons the facts and  gives vent to an opinion. It is  correct'that up- to this year, the  Japanese fishing in mid-Pacific  has not made too much differ-   . .4nnris  ���nn nnn  ence to our fishing here on the &** Pack (1935) 920,000 cases.  I  believe  they  did' Japanese  Total  Pack,   average,  catch is   extremely  misleading. ���  They    eat    only    the    cheaper \  grades  of. fish,   and  the  better  grades are exported.  Today, Australia js buying  Japanese-caught salmon to the  tune of three million dollars,  while Canada received a trifling  i order of half a million. Australia  used to be a traditional market  for our salmon.  Eighth. The reference to our  Atlantic Coast Fisheries is  shared with other nations, but  this is a poor comparison. The  Atlantic Fisheries is strictly a  High Seas fishery.  In conclusion, I present the  following figures, which may  prove of interest. Japanese  Salmon Pack���1930 to 1940.  Japanese Territories, average  pack, 500,000 cases. Japanese  Territories, largest pack (1935)  1,200.000 cases. Kamchatka, lar-  Coast, but I believe they  affect the runs to the -Naas and  Skeena rivers. As yet this cannot  be proven. I make.the statement  now that the salmon being taken  (or poached) by the Japanese in  Mid-Pacific    are     intermingled  proposes to refund five million dollars of this in April, doubt- j fish?    originating   in   Siberian,  (all sources) 1,750,000 cases.  Japanese total largest pack, (all  sources (1935) 2,281,000 cases.  T The largest salmon pack in  the world occorred in 1936, when  13 million cases .were packed  from all sources in all countries.  W.H.

"This $200,000 is the minimum  necessary to continue the work  of the Cancer Society and Foundation in British Columbia",  Mr. Malkin said.  He   stated  that  "as   soon   as  osters  Letterheads  Business Cards  Announcements  Bills and Invoices  Let  The Coast News  handle your  printing requirements.  less at equal expense  Children's clothing and shoes, up to fourteen years are  exempt from the sales tax, car registration fees have been  dropped from ten dollars to one^ and the Amusement tax has  been dropped from l?1,/. to 15 percent. Now we make provision to borrow thirty million dollars for the extension of  the P.G.E.  country was Alaska, with eight  and a half million cases. The  combined total for North American-;: pack was - eleven million  cases that year.  The figures following are fur  that we value, than an unstated amount, running to several  times that sum, for the same service. To make the statement  that many will receive their hospitalization at less cost than  by the payment of a reasonable premium is strange economics, indeed. , :  Alaskan, and  Canadian   waters  In.  due    course    this   will   be  proven.  I have pertinent facts regard-;  ing this, with which I will deal*  in a separate letter.

Our Government has  made one historical blunder, and  the blame falls heavily on our  Minister of; Fisheries, in having  ratified, this U.S.-Canadian-Jap-  anese treaty. Under its terrris, it  can be re-opened, and to some-  extent   revised,   but   not   until  FYnPrinPflt manship   of   George   Cro'skery,   APril  2nd'  1958.   By  then,   the  LApCMIICall [secretary   of   the   Canadian  Japanese will be so  firmly  en  trenched  it may be  imp'ossible  to get rid of them.

Tins does not include  visits paid for by the Department of Veterans' Affairs, the  Department of Indian Affairs or  tlie Division of Tuberculosis  Control. A total of 260 visits  were for DVA patients, and  paid for by that Departmen at  full cost rate. Injections for TB  patients were paid at the rate  of $1.25 per injection.    ��  The Contract with the Department of Indian Affairs is a flat  rate of sixty dollars per month.  This work was resumed last  January, and covers all types  of services rendered. During  December, a very successful TB  Survey was made, with only one  case noted. This is very encouraging.  The distribution of visits  shewed the Gibsons area as the  largest, and all points westwards, curiously enough, dropping down in the scale as they  are located in  order westward.

This pipeline was started  about  1931,   and  by   1936  completed within   the   old  several lengths  G.R. Cooper, better known  as Dick in those days, built a  hose reel, and a cart to carry it.  Considerable interest was shown  about this time, and many a  good . practice was held, and  wasj some fires were put out. There  Vil-| was no great change to equip-  lage. During the laying^ of the! ment except for the addition of  mains,    the    stand-pipes    were'more two-inch canvas hose.  efected.|  Soon after the completion of  the water mains, certain citizens  got together and decided to form  alvolunteer Fire Fighting Group.

This group was  given a four-cylinder fire pump  snd several hundred feet of  rubber-lined hose (one and one-  half inch). They- were also issued  helmets, gas masks' and coats.  Fortunately this equipment was  never needed for the purpose  for which it was originally  supplied.  After the war, renewed interest  was taken in fire-prevention.  The Village Clerk, on instructions from the Commission, was  able to obtain the A.R.P. equipment for local fire prevention.

The boys were very fortunate  at this time, in having a colored  film showing the different stages  of construction, recorded by one  of our Honorary members, Dr.  Hugh Inglis. In the years to  come, this will be a very interesting documentary of progress.  All during this time, meetings  were held at the Gibsons Building Supply and in private homes.  On January 11th, 1951, the first  meeting was held in the, new  Fire Hall.

'  ���������r-:Along about,. 1946, the newly  formed Ratepayers Association  took; an: active interest in the  fire-prevention, and with the  help of the younger men of the  community, sponsored a new  wave of enthusiasm in that line.  Any of the small groups that  had worked on the Fire Brigades  up until this time, had done so  with a minimum of equipment,  and much time and some private  money was used to keep what  equipment there was in repair.  The Ratepayers' Association  undertook to raise money for  the improvement of the equipment, and with the help of the  small fire brigade, of the time,  consisting of Eric Inglis, Cliff  Leach, Dick Fitchett, Art Hull.  Ben Knight, Cliff Gibson and  Jim Drummond, put on the first  Firemen's Ball. They received  enthusiastic support from the  community.  ���  The Ratepayers used some of  and hall, ^and learning to handle  the newly acquired equipment.  About this time, there was a  small boy drowned in the Village, and the need was felt for  emergency first aid equipment.  As one of the members was a  fully qualified first aid man, the  Firemen offered their services  as a fund raising agency, and  donated the first $25.00 to get  the ball, rolling.  As a result of the generous  response from the public, this  effort snowballed to great  heights, thereby enabling .the;  purchase of the best- available  inhalator, and other Life Saving  equipment. Shortly after that,  the word "Brigade" was dropped, in favor of Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department.

The Fire Brigade was ; jn the past  anrcioui; that the interest be kept1  rlive,   so   prevailed   upon   the  Village Commission to allow the  erection   of   a   firehall   on   its  present site.  Dick Fitchett, Eric Inglis and  Cliff Leach attended several  Commission, meetings and presented a plan drawn up by Dick,  and aggreed upon by the rest  of the Fire Brigade, to them.  They agreed to help in its construction. This plan, quite, a  pretentious affair, was to be  large enough to house two full-  sized fire trucks, and to have,  a recreation room in the upper  part where the firemen could  have.their own club. It had been  pointed out to the small group  at that time, that, ini order to  create and hold interest in volunteer fire-fighting, it was  necessary to have a social side,  as well as tlie work.  With  the prospect of a good  f irehair and good equipment in  sight,  interest again  developed,,  and work was started on the new  site.
