 PROVINCIAL  Proviaaial Library,  Victoria, B. C��  Eighth Year of Publication  Vol. 3 -No. 18.  Thursday May 6,  1954  Published in  Gibsons; B.C^  (L*ditorial  Again, Too Little, Too Late  This time it's the whole Peninsula and adjacent Islands  that are in' danger of losing an immensely valuable, in fact,  indispensible service, through the lack of a little foresight,  and. through" taking too much for granted. The Ambulance  service, which can be credited with having saved the lives  of many of our citizens, is about to go by the board for lack  of financial support.  Be it clearly understood: Mr. Graham does not complain  that no one'pays for this service at all, or that he gets no  Governmental support. D.V.A, and tlie Department of Health  and Welfare, within their jurisdiction, do pay for services  rendered. That sometimes the pay is too small is admitted,  expenses being considered, but it does come in. These pay-  merits'are regulated to a minimum, and leave no allowance  for the Services rendered for which no payments' at all are  received.  Borderline, cases, to wit, services performed for persons  not under the care of some Governmental agencies, and yet  still human beings .requiring' care, are the ones that pile up  the deficiits. No service can exist for;long under the load  being carried bybitr Ambulance service.  Now a 'committee has been formed, following !the writing  of many letters by .many organizations, without even courtesy  replies. This committee must find a way out of the dilemma,  and find it quickly. The equipment has been listed for sale,  and onice sold, tlie Peninsula is without Ambulance service  Cannot this community raise enough to provide a basic  fund, which will'ensure ���'the' continued operation of Graham's  Ambulance? It serves everyone rich and poor, old and young.  For the "Have Nots" cannot the "Haves" provide a little?  Would, a Penmsular-wiid^e appeal raise the fifteen hundred  dollars necessary, in Humanity's name?  Ofbsons May Queen  eiiminan  leveal Talent  Miss Joyce Inglis has been  chosen to reign over Gibsons as  the 1954 May Queen. Her attendants will be her sister Myrriia  Inglis and Miss Onalee Oviatt.  Hill's Machine  si Man I Knew  by Ben Lang  One morning five years ago a man walked into my store. ���  He wafc.tall. broajd of shoulder, distinguished looking and he  wore a semi-homburg as no one else could wear one. With  a friendly grin he introduced himself: "I'm Ken Whitaker,  Ben; wondered if I could talk to you for a minute about your  freight problems?" That was how I first met Ken and at once  I knew he was a man I liked and from th'eni on Ken became  just a vital'part of all the activities of Sechelt and area, and  especially Village Centre.  Ken had something which manly of us try all our lives  ' ?|tqyy$eyj^qg^  noisy,  healthy laugh! Ken's laugh could be 'lieard through  several partitions in Village Centre and never failed to create  smiles and chuckles froim even the sternest within earshot.  Ken had. a keen sense of humor ��� so much so that a  great many of, his remarks went -unf-noticed.  Ken loved a prank; good,.clean, boyish funi ��� and more  often than not I was an accomplice ��� much to my own  enjoyment.  Behind all this there stood a man; a man who only those  who knew him well got to appreciate fully.  Ken was a man of great knowledge. A man who studied  and read widely. A man of ^varied talents and interests. He  would with equal ease, explain, the latest bill presented on  the floor of the legislature in Britain, the reason for the  failure in rubber crops, or why Sechelt was spelled Seechelt.  Kern had a helping hand for anyone and everyone in trouble.  The satisfaction: of someone saying "thanks, Ken" meant more  to this man than anything else. Could we not all reflect on  this to our really worthwhile benefit?  I have lost a true and respected friend. We have all lost  a citizen of Sechelt whose example of unselfishness and spirit  of goodwill, will always be in our minds to help us be worthwhile men, women, boys and girls.  To New Quarters  On May First, Hill.'s Machine  Shop officialiy moved to**5 new  quarters in the Chevron Station  on Marine Drive in Gibsons  formerly occupied by the Standard Station No. 3.  George Hill will operate an  Automotive and Marine Repair  business, as well as the Machine  Shop, and will handle Chevron  Products as well.  George advises that he will  have full Marine Service, with  M a'rine Ways and a Barge  Station.   ��� ...  Doug  Stewart,   who  with Murray King, in Standard  No. 3, will, be a member of the  new staff,   and  others  will be  added.  Chain saws and parts, and.  Marine Outboards will be handled in HilPs and George will  specialize in welding,  For several years, George  operated the Hill's Machine  Shop up the steep lane beside  the Bal Block. The new quarters  are roomier, and of amich easier  access to his customers. George  now hopes to be able to really  give the service his customers  need, and if which he and his  staff are capable..  Judges at the Gibsons Pre-  iminary Talent Night were  ^much impressed by the fine  Quality of the performances of  'the contestants on last Saturday  aright, and with the suitability  ���pf. the selections chosen.  r*>;���The evening proved a very  entertaining -and successful one,  ^fthr'���'&- good number of entries.

Mrs.  Goos t'r e y   made   the  Sixteen members of the Sechelt Peninsula met at the home-  of Lock Knowles in Gibsons on Tuesday morning, May 4th��� to-  near the problems relating to the operations of an Ambulance  service, as presented by W. Graham. Lock Knowles was chairman,,  and D. Wortman secretary for the meeting.  Mr. Graham, who has been operating this service, in conjunction with his Funeral service, for the past several years ia  Gibsons, has notified the people of the area through the Press  and otherwise, ���that at the end of April, He would be forced to  close the service completely, because of financial conditions!

To Discuss  Local Affairs  Students  Hear Talk  Wise - Mosioner  Wed At Pender  On May 1st, a very pretty  wedding took place in St.  Mary's Chapel, when the Rev.  Canon Greene officiated at the  marriage of Miss Celina Mosion-  jer, of St. Mary's Staff to Mr.  Harry Wise of Pender Harbour.  The Bride was charmingly  gowned in White net and lace  over satin, with a tiny lace cap,  from which was draped a finger  length veil. She carried a bouquet of tiny red rose-buds and  stephanitis, with her white  Bride's prayer book.  Matron of Honor was Mrs.  Richard Wise, wearing gold net  and lace over satin, and Bridesmaid Bernice Hansen wore a  companion gown of blue. They  both carried carnations, and  .wore prettily contrasting corsages. The best man was Richard  Crummey, and Mr. Carl Brem-  mem gave the bride away.  At the reception afterwards  dn the Irvine's Landing Hall,  Col. E.S. Johnston gave the  toast to the Bride. For the time  being, Mrs. Wise will continue  at the Hospital.  Ritchey To  Debate  With Ratepayers  ' The Village council held its  regular meeting Tuesday May  the eigth in the Municipal Hall  with Chairman J.

A letter from the local Firemen asking that the number of  insured men be raised from the  present eighteen to  twenty-two  was the topic for a lengthy discussion.   The  reason given  for  the request was that there were  usually a few members of the  brigade   absent   due   to   their  various occupations. The council  granted the coverage for twenty  men and ask that the" names of  the replacements be supplied to  the council.  ��� Commissioner Ritchey accepted the invitation to attend the  Ratepayers meeting on Thursday evening to take the affirmative stand in the debate on;  the subject  of "Should the In-  CHANGE   MAIL   SCHEDULE  ON  MAY  FOURTEENTH -  The new mail schedule effective the fourteenth of May  w)ill see the mail arriving at  8:40 a.m. and ready for distribution at 10:00 a.m.  The mail will close at 1:00  p.an. for departure at 2:00 p.m.  Owing to another mail survey  May ninth to May fifteenth, the  mail may be slightly delayed;  during this period.  be Increased"?

Thursday Mjy 6,  195-:  SMOKING   IN THE  SCHOOLS  May I take space to congratulate "Deserter" on his letter in  your last issue, re smoking in  the Schools. I know personally  several fine young men who  have graduated from High,  without benefit of smoking  lounges; who went there for an  education and seem to have  fulfilled that object; they are  a credit to their friends, parents  and the community. A letter  from a sensible young man like  4 'Deserter"' is welcome confirma^  tion that there are others.  I feel very strongly that Hygiene and  Health,   if it is  still  taught   in   the   schools,   should  provide  sufficient  reasons  for  banning  smoking  altogether  in  the  schools;   it  has   long   been  known   that  it   is   injurious  to  j minors and undeveloped young;.  people,  and.

Furthermore,  if school age young people are  already so addicted to smoking  that they cannot refrain for the,  few short hours of their lives  they spend in school, then they  are in bad shape and it doesn't  look well for their future.

Tax Payers on this Peninsula  and elsewhere, contribute about  half   of   their   property   taxes;  Weather-wise  by R.F. Kennett .'  ''  Insofar as weather was con-;  cerned, April followed the trend  of March. Although precipitation was normal for April,  temperatures continued to the-  very cold side.. Needless to say,  this was the case over much of  the continent and not confined  to our locality.  Looking over the results, April  had 2.36 inches of rain, and one  lone snow flurry on the 28th  w[h|&eh surprised many of the!  Gibsonites, and rightly so, for  snow in April has occurred only  a few times in the last fifty  years. Temperatures recorded  were as follows. Maximum 56.2  degrees (24th), minimum 26.2  degrees (30th); mean average  temperature 42.4 degrees and  no less than 10 days had temperatures below the freezing  point. There were 13 days with  rain which was confined mostly  to the early part of April.  Looking into May records, it  is interesting to note temperatures rose sharply on May 2nd,  and therefore giving the hint  for our garden enthusiasts to  prepare. I think we can be verry  sure that warmer nights and  higher afternoon temperatures  ���are with us how.  many of these Tax Payers came  here to try to live on a deflated  Income   for   the  rest   of   their  days.   They   do   not   have,    in  many   cases,   the  luxeries   they  provide   for   the   schools   such  as running water, inside plumbing,    gymnasiums,    busses    to  ride in, sound roofs and heating.  I am sure that if the families  of  these young  people   had   to  (individually   pay  for   all  these  superlatives, they would at least  appreciate    them,    and   maybe  eliminate   them.    After   all,    a  sound   building,    and    a    good  teacher are all that is necessary  for the opportunity to study and  iearn.   Turning   School   into   a  Recreation centre is to do so at  the expense of Education.  I am much inclined at present,  to. a  resolution  to   abolish  the  schools as| such, and turn them  into homes for tired and penniless Tax-payers.  The thankless  recipients of too much too' often  could then wallow in ignorance  of things that really matter, anld  indulge  in  Smoking  and other  child_sh(?)    pleasures    now    in  vogue,  including  Comics, ��� radio  and television, until hunger set  in;   then   they   might   have   to  work for food and other benefits  and it would not hurt them at  all.  How about some more "Deserters" pulling up their socks and  acting like intelligent humans?  Many disillusioned arid disgusted older people would back you  up, and at least you would be  liked, which may not seem important now, but you'll find out  later on.  Roberts Creek.

Sometimes business pressure  ... family duties . . . or personal occupations keep friends  apart but, even so, they seldom need lose touch with one  another. A long distance telephone call puts people as close  as a conversation over a cup of coffee. The telephone is there  when it is needed most and it is there, too, when all that's  wanted is to hear once more the voice of a relative or friend.  For business men it provides the means of talking over the  details and difficulties that crop up in the business world.  For them, the telephone is a friendly, essential link with  their associates.

The second star goes to 'Porky'  Jackson of Wilson   Creek ; who  pitched a good steady ball game  even though he had to be taken  out in the late innings. ...  The third star goes to Rudy  Crucil of Wilson Creek who  played a steady and aggressive  game and was by far the  smoothest player on the field.  Gibsons Firemen were blasted  11 to 6 in the evening game at  Port Mellon by a hustling team  that has tlie tightest infield that  will be seen in these parts.  The Firemen really fell apart  at the seams, playing hard but  unable to do anything right. *  Port Mellon took a 5 to "0 lead,  in the first inning and the Firemen never even threatened until  late in the game when they,  came, through with 3 runs only  to die with the bases loaded:  The Firemen haven't shown  the form they..are capable of in  their two games this season, but  should start rolling soon.  Of the teams'-I have seen so-  far, Port Mellon looks like the  best bet for the pennant, but it  is too early in the year to make"  any prediction of that.  GEN.

Gibsons  WE   CARRY   THE   STOCK  Hide-And-Seek  Peninsula P.T.A.  Talent Night Finals  Saturday, May 8th  DEBBIE REYNOLDS' favorite hiding place seems to  be in the branches of the nearest tree. Being more or  less the torn-boy type, she can scramble up fast as  anything. Debbie's next M-G-M picture is the Technicolor musical, "I Love Melvin,,, with Donald O'Connor.  She liked the trees in New York's Central Park where  part of the picture was filmed.  AMBULANCE  (Continued from Page 1)  carried tlie burden too long.  It was stated that a per capita-  payment of fifty cents per annum would fikely be enough to  meet the deficits, and make it  possible to continue the service.  .. The North Vancouver situation was described, where a few  years ago the service was operated much as it is here. Because  of similar deficits, the Municipality had to take-over the.serT  vice, at the cost of wages for;  6 operators, at three hundred  dollars per month, a telephone,  operator and a book keeper.     0  CO-OPERATIVE   EFFORT  Mr. Gargrave feels that' we;  must provide the service for ourselves by co-operative'effort, to  work out some scheme to suit  the unique circumstances of  this Peninsula.  The problem of distributing  the cost over the area, in a  manner to be equitable, is the  big one. A committee should be  formed to go into the. matter  with the Government. Mr. Gargrave is willing to help as liason  if desired,  Mr. Boucher suggested one  large Community Chest, to embrace the needs of the Ambulance Service, the VON, and.  other needed services. He asked  for a .figure, which, if : raised,  would make it possible to  operate. Mr. Graham considered,  that $2400.00 a year would meet  such a deficit. $1200.00 is needed for this year.  A committee was chosen by  those present to represent the  entire Peninsula in- endeavoring  to find a way to meet the Ambulance situation.  Mr. R. Macnicol of ^Gibsons,  W. Peiper of Pender Harbour,  Dr. McColl of Selma Park, Rev.  Oswald of Gibsons, and Mr. J.  Browning o_ WilsOn Creek all  agreed to act. It was agreed that  a delegate should be sent to.  Victoria to interview the Department of Health in the  matter.  Art Exhibit  Attracts  Good Audience  The first Aft Exhibit held in  Gibsons, un'der the auspices of  the Kinsmen's Club, was well  attended and well received. It  had been hoped <that there  would be a number of works  exhibited of varying kinds by  the talented members of the  area. Mr. Wes B. Hodgson of  Gibsons, and Mr. A. Chiltern,  of Davis Bay were the two  entrants.  Mr. Hodgson exhibited a large  group of paintings and sketches,  including oils and water colors,  and varying from portraits of  persons famous, and not so well  known, landscapes and seascapes, to woods' vistas and  architectural   subjects.  There were scenes from all  across Canada, and locally those  of Gibsons Landing, Gospel  Rock, and Stanley Park attracted much attention.  Mr. Chiltern showed two can-  ivasses, . "Santa Cruz Coast",  .^illustrating a storm making over  f:a rocky foreshore, and "Mon-  ;> terey Cypress" a colorful paint-  ing of a wind twisted/ cypress,  both of which were beautifully  ^executed.  This    first    exhibit    brought  i much pleasure to those viewing  the  work of these two artists,  ylf is hoped that in. the future it  will require a far larger place  xthan the Anglican Church Hall  to house all the paintings.  Other forms of art, in addition  .���to  oils   and  water  colors,   will  then be shown, it is expected.  MRS. D.
