The only way in which this can normally be done is by the  Tourist paying for accomodation and meals, by. patronizing what>  ever commercial entertainments the community may boast, and  by using the normal services of the place, such as garage, laundry,  cleaning etc.. There >_ one other thing'-- the tourist may purchase  something in the community that he does not see anywhere else,  something that is peculiar to, or characteristic of the Sunshine  Coast. *  We took a trip up and down the Peninsula, stopping in almost  every shop, to see what could be purchased here that could not be  picked up, and usually for less, in Vancouver, Seattle or Winnipeg  or Toronto, or for that matter in shops in Sawridge, Rapid City  or Allendale. ' c  The only things that seemed to be. peculiarly a part of the Sunshine Coast were picture postcards of the place and hand-woven  baskets made by the Sechelt Indians.  There were the usual plastic, china and leather novelties, the  only claims of these to being made local were by virtue of the  words 'Gibsons', 'Sechelt' or 'Pender Harbour' written or. printed  on them. These can be bought by the gross in any dime store across  the nation.  The meals were not characteristic of anywhere special/Good  food they are, and attractively served, but not one meal which  would later foe recalled as having an identity peculiar to a sea-side  or roadside spot on the Sunshine Coast. No menu mentions /Grilled  Salmon Steaks from Howe SoundT^ or  even 'Madeira Park Kippers*. ~  Each little eating place does its best to look like every other.  This does not make for any feeling of being on holiday for the  traveller, or even of being away from home.  What can people do, to make the Sunshine Coast a place that  is remembered by the tourist, as a spot that is conscious of its  individuality, and which brings ia pleasant change to travellers?  If a real effort is not made, the tourist continues to tour, looking  simply for something that is 'different', which after all is what  attracts them in the -first place. If that difference fas' pleasant and  cheerful, then the tourist stays, and in later^years returns.  Talent Night  Council Meet  A meeting of the Peninsula  Council of the PTA talent night  committee was held in Sechelt  last week.  Discussions of clauses in the  constitution were presented^ nec-  cessitating changes in classes of  talent night competitions. The  council feels that the public and  especially the contestants, will  iresKpjy see* the dSfficuifry _tn  having open classes for all types  of entertainment. Therefore, it  is with regret the Council announces merging vocal and  instrumental duet's, and an open  class for Accordian and Orches  tras.

Those of your readers who  are living on a pension will take  strong objections to your arguments in support of an increase  of indemnity for our Members  of Parliament.  The Government and its supporters buttress my contention  that they felt they were in no  need of any increase. Ar! election  was held last summer, and as  far as I am aware, not one of  the members who was elected  even hinted that they should  have more pay. Now when the  election is over, they suddenly  discover that it will be necessary  to make a raid on the Public  Treasury trusting said raid will  be forgotten before the election  comes along.  This move to increase indemnities is a Government measure,  so let us have a look at the  record to see if they have done  anything of a valid nature that  would justify the increased indemnities. Anyone who has  visited the Peninsula during the  past several years has a vory  ready answer to that query. The  people Who have retired here  conefis|ted 'of. pensioners, 'both  ' civil and military, and those  other unfortunates, who, with  no pension;, but having a reasonable sum of money, expected to  live out their days in some degree of comfort and independence, firee ,from f i n a n c i| a I  worries. .'."���,'  Now what has the Government done for the Pensioners  and for others who had no pension? I say that the Government  through its lack of policy, has  been responsible for the value  Of these pensions dropping more  than fifty percent. Then, if some  of our residents were so unfortunate as to invest their savings  in Government Bonds, they  know now that the money value  of them has dropped considerably.;   '"' ^y:^:?V'";^':;yyy;'f���;'^���'.���  Your Editorial states .that the  increased cost of food, housing  and other things make it necessary that our members of  ParUamebi should have an increased indemnity.'' If our Government had been interested in  the welfare of the common  people, they could have taken  such action as they did during  the war years, to prevent the  .cost of all goods and services  from rising.  Instead! inflation was allowed  to run, raihpan*, with the value  of pensions decreasing each day,  to the detriment _f many of  your readers.

"It allows our customers to pay  bills without being obliged to carry large sums of cash in their  pockets. And it enables them to use the mail instead of trailing  around in person to their creditors. Cheques really save you  time, money and shoe leather."  Mr. Smith points out that a cancelled cheque is valuable  also as a permanent receipt. Furthermore, many people rely  on their cheque stubs and monthly bank statements to keep  them up to date on the state of their finances.  "Over a million Canadians pay their bills with B of M  cheques," Mr. Smith continues. "Most of these cheques are  for only a few dollars. Others, of course, are for many thousands of dollars, covering important business transactions."

If some underpaid employee  dips his fist into his employers  cash box, he will feel the harsh  rigors of the law. But our Government tells the elected repre  sentatives that if enough of them  agree to dip their two hands into  the public treasury then that is  quite lawful. Does it not seem  a bit deceitful, on the part of  our Government, to rush the  measure through, when not a  hint of such action was given  during the election last summer?  I think I may go further and  suggest that this measure fringes  on thje dishonourable.  C.S. Cassidy.  ���* C-re^rar-T -��*-���� _h_��_  What do  we mean...

I read with interest the remarks contained in your Coast  News editorial of Feb. 4th, this  in regards to increased indemnities for*the Senate and House  of Commons' members, and salary and indemnity increases for  members of the Cabinet.  There are many . who will  agree that some increase is due  in the allowances, but who will  disagree with ^the method adopted in bringing this about and  the amount involved.  Much has been said about the  low indemnity of $4,000.00 a  year under present high cost of  living conditions, a situation  created by inflation for which  the liberal administration is in  part to blame, because of lack  of controls etc..  Is it not true that each member of the.House of Commons  received around $6,000.00 a  year for the years 1949-���1953,  plus an extra expense allowance  of $2,000.00 yearly? Eight thousand dollars per year for the four  years service. Extra sessions  provided the additional income.  No income tax paid on the expense allowance.  Is it not true that a very generous cafe service is provided  in the House of Commons building in Ottawa, where meals can  be obtained at less than cost?  It is also true that during the  session, and ten days before, and  ten days after, the members enjoy free postage on all their  mail, including Christmas cards  mailed at that time.  Two years ago the Government granted. the members of  the House of Commons a very  generous pension arrangement,  where a life pension, without  "means test" can be obtained  for a payment of only $4,000.00.  If the member had to buy an  annuity to cover this $3,000.00  a year pension, it would cost  him in the neighborhood of  $40,000.00. The member must  have served around sixteen  years in the House of Commons  in order to qualify for the maximum of- $3,000.00 yearly pen- h  sion. And of course if a member  is in the Cabinet he can have a  trip around the World now and  again, without expense to himself. I merely mention those  things to show that the life of  a member of parliament is not  all trouble and that it has its  compensations, In any case there  has -always been plenty of suitable candidates at the old rate  of indemnity, which proves that  it is an attractive job.     , ���  When Prime JVEinister St!  Laurent introduced this ''Bill"  asking for an increase in members of the House of Commons  and the Senate indemnities from  $500.00 to $833.00 a month, and  for increase in the indemnities  and salaries of Cabinet Ministers  from   $1500.00  monthly  to   $2,  SPECIAL   PRICES  During   Our  YEAR-END    INVENTORY  Clearance Of  CLOTHING & SHOES  Take Advantage  of   This  Opportunity  For  Real  Values  Marine Supplies  Phone 116  PENDER  HARBOUR  250.00 a month, which includes  expenses in both cases, he said-  "I cannot believe that" a country  as rich and great as Canada has  become  really  want  that   condition    to    continue".    Mr.    St.  Laurent  was   referring   to   the��  condition   of  our  members   of  parliament with their $8,000.00  yearly,   and   the   Cabinet   with  their     income    of     $22,000.00  yearly.

It  appears   that    Canada    is   rich  when men in public  life   want  a pay increase, and that Canada  is  poor, very very poor,  when  recipients of small pensions and  war veterans   on war  veterans  allowances, ask for an increase  in   their   present    pensions   or  allowance of $40.00 and $50.00  a month.  I agree with some members  ���of parliament), who feel that  public service demands certain  sacrifices, that it is voluntary,  and that no person has to run  for office unless he desires, and  therefore they are objecting to  the proposed increasesas being  too large at a time when there  are so many trying to exist on  .very meagre allowances, and  , whose requests for a little extra  assistance, have to date, been  ignored by the Ottawa Government.  Robt. Macnicol.  Ed's note: With reference to  (this letter of Mr. Macnicol's, and  others on the same subject, we  hesitate to attempt a reply, the  topic is so large. Following  further study of the Pensions,  Act and and various other regulations and legislations pertaining to the problems , of . many  Veterans and their dependants,  we will attempt to present a few  figures. These in., themselves  would not justify the raise pf  indemnity proposed' for the  members of parliament, but may  serve  to   cast  a  brighter  light  Thursday,  February  18,   1954  The  Coast News  by J.

Because of this evident care, no fire calls were  received.  Congratulations to Sechelt  Fire Department for the fine  recommendation given by Air  Vice-Marshall Heakes, regarding Equipment and Organization.  The Firemen's Ball is to be  held on March 20th. Tickets are  now on sale. All the local fire  men are selling them. The puplic  is urged not to wait for the fireman to ask labout the tickets-,  but to ask the Fireman if he  may buy one.  There was am account within  the past few days of a fire in  Burnlaby, published ini the Vant-  couver Sun, on February 15th.  In this account, two * ladies  attempted to put out a fire in  their home, by themselves. They  were not able to do so, and by  the time they called the Fire  Department it wias too late to  save the homev So, the Fireboys v  give the following good bits of  advice:  1. Do not put ashes into  wooden or paper containers.  2. Do hot try to fight fire  yourselves, call the fire department.  3. Do close all windows and  doors, with yourselves on the  OUTSIDE.  4. DO CALL THE FIRE  DEPARTMENT FIRST  A  Good  Man  "" by L.S.J.  The sudden passing of James  Cunninghaml, the Game Commissioner will be regretted hereabouts. He was well known in  this district in the long ago. The  local folk who did a little hunting played hide and seek with  Jim quite often because ��� we  thought thajt; a gun license and  a game limit was an injustice  and more or less governed ourselves accordingly..  It was not long though before  we became more orthodox and  public relations with the Game  Department perceptibly Improved. It was a year or two later  when Jim was knocking on- my  door before breakfast and ventured the statement that a lady  was charging me with shooting  her cats, and had I anything ito  say. I invited him in and sadd  that we (the we being then a  young imsm who works at present on the Government road)  had shot some cats as they were  felines that had been left behind  by the summer complaints and  Were constantly making the  night hideous and nobody could  sleep etc.. Well, Jim said, I can't  quarrel with that, but what  about Jthifc  women's Valuable  CS'tS? 8     ���  The protestations of our inno-  cense in this regard were loud  and long "never did we do such  a thing, in fact, we had never  seen these fancy cats much less  shoot such estimable creatures".  Jim left with that and his  parking shot^was, "Keep up the  good work bttt don't let me hear  about it." I me him years later  at McNab Creek and helped him  to liberate the Elk that had  proved a nuisance at Stanley  Park. That was in 1932 I think.  Well that's that.

Stumps have been the insignia  of mankinds occupation of  ground since time immemorial.  The beaver seems to be our only  , _-iVaJ��� irian�� purpose and the  beavers in the final analysis is  the same, shelter and food.  The unsightly mess of a vast  array of stumps1 is not exactly  a proud heritage. Other timbered countries that were more advanced ��� took stump and all for  processing purposes thus having  unencumbered ground left for  new forests. The higher levels  now being logged here are composed of many varieties and it  is doubtful if it ever will be  feasible to take the whole tree.  The pine forests of the-southern U.S. are utilized for turpenr-  tine and I believe some charcoal is made as well from the  stumps.  However this is not our story.  We take ourselves back 4 or 5  decades and find ourselves on a  large scow in tow of the tug  "Maagten" proceeding up the  Gulf with the parahernaliia of a  logging camp of those days.

Here "is our new  home for 2 or 3 years at least.  A creek and a grove of large  maples look like making a good  campsite and the job of bringing  everything ashore commenced.  Working hours were nonexistent, the scow was costing  five dollars a day demurrage,  a most fearful state of affairs.  First job a pipe line from the  creek for the donkeys so that  we could have some steam to  . clear the bit of ground required  for the collection of shacks that  would spring up here and there.  The order 'of construction  would be cookhouse first, office  and bunkhouse combined next,  and hen bunkhouses and so on,  to filers shack, and blacksmith  shop and what have you. To  digress here a bit, the tugboat  crew had taken time out to go  on a fishing expedition up at the  head., and the thought crossed  my mind what would happen if  a tug boat crew went fishing  for a, couple of days at present?  However we were settling in  and; everything was in hand so  that the falters could go out and  cut shute sticks if there was a  shute to build, as there was in  this case, and a stump would be  marked for the bullblock so that  the setting could be marked out  for the fallers. This was before  the" days of the high lead.  Signs of permanency would  BJhow up in the camp1, theire  would be the paths made, and  a few steps cut, and there would  ,be shelves and crosstrees in tlie  bunkhouses for the drying of  clothes and habitants knick-  nacks.

A few days off for July 1st,  and back to work, as there was  not much danger of fire when  the ground lead was used. The  bunkhouses by this- time would  have heaters, and most of the  cracks would have been caulked  up by all and sundry, and it  made a nice comfortable abode  for chatter at night and the odd  game of cards.

He bases his contention on  long knowledge and study of  the sea, from-his experience as  a fisherman. iapd a fish buyer,  and from" iMoirtnaltiOn lie has  received from a v a'r i e t y of  _ource_. '   /     . ���.','/", 't "���'��� ,.  '  The destruction ot the shrimp  beds anldyfeeding grounds by  systems. of fishing, that break  up arid destroy bo_i plant and  animal foods for fish have been  responsible for a considerable  decline locally.  The expansion of the Japanese  fleets of Mother Ships in vthe  Pacific -is contemplated a�� a  menace to continuing fishing  industry on this coast. Last  year's catch by that group, according W the statistical release,  figures furnished by the Japanese, was \ oyer seven million  Balrhon. This year, Mr. Fearn  predicts, the catch will exceed  15 millions. Their stated objective is 35 million salmon per  year. This fleet can, by virtue  of the treaty signed with Japan  "last year, fish within three miles  of the Canadian Coast.  Last  year, ^according  to  the  report of the 'Fisheries Department, Mr."A. Reynolds of Squeamish,     Supervisor    for    Howe  Sound, the Salmon catch in his  area was the smallest on record.  Mr.   Fearn   proposes   in   an  article next week to quote facts  and figures that can be documented, in support of his contentions, and he urges that, all  people who are im the smallest  way interested in fishing,, as a  business of this district or as a  sport,  should make themselves  acquainted with what is occurring in the fishing industry, and  should ge�� together before too'���  late,  to add their influence   to  that  of the f*:teh|ermeh   in  an1  effort to have proper conservation legislation enacted by our  Governments.
