Quann's ten acres  was good bottom land and had  contained a wonderful stand of |  old growth timber, but unfortunately an old fire had killed it  all long before the white man  came to Gibsons. The cedar did  not suffer, and the shingle bolters of a much later date had to  make three passes across the  area defore it was cleaned up.  The fir snags Jimmy chopped  down were rotten in the tap but  sound in the stump. I would say  that when that timber was green  green it would have easily run  100,000 B.M. to the acre.  This-is what Jimmy cleared,,  and when, he was though the  ground was absolutely clean and  fenced. It was sure a swell job.  Well, Where is it now?

The Village benefits little from a  clean-up drive which simply moves the nuisance to the  neighbours. J  We also hope this spirit of Clean-Up will not die at the  end of the week. If every one uses common sense, good care,  and the services of the Garbage Collector, the Village could  stay a clean, attractive and healthful place for everyone.  Table scraps, unwashed tins and jars, and food wrappers,  at/tract flies, encourage rats and mice, and invite the prowling  cats, dogs and skunks of tlie neighborhood into the village.  These natural scavengers are often carriers or spreaders of  disease, and will only be discouraged by the removal of that  which attracts them.  While on the subject of Clean-Up, it is to be hoped that  the effort goes as far as a real drive against the rats, too. It  is not an encouraging, sight to prospective home oi' business  buyers to see large, well fed rats.on the streets or about  buildings. It can be done, by action, and continued action- by  everyone concerned.

This time, Granthams Landing is the scene. It is reported  that cars travelling towards Gibsons over that road do so at  excessive speeds. There are many children on the roads, particularly at about four in the aJtetnoon, when they get off  the school bus.  Small children are frequently endangered there, too.  There are two things which can be done to alleviate the  danger. The first is the observation of common-sense driving  practices by the motorist, and the second, where small children are concerned* is the establishment of a safe place as a  playground for them.  Cars parked along the edge of the'- roadway give the  motorist little chance, at any speed, to see small children who  will dart out from between the vehicles onto the roadway.  This creates still another problem * im-l with the topography  of Granthams, it will be hard to avoid this for some years.  It does seem, therefore, thai the motorist can do most for  safety by cautious driving.  Mill Expands  At Halfmoon Bay  W. Kolterman and partners  in the Kolterman Sawmills at  Half Moon Bay have faith in  the future of the Peninsula.  They proved this by expanding  their business.  Last  week   the   partners,   W.  JColterman, Ken Anderson, Doug  Roberts  and Dick Mosier  took  a  trip  to Vancouver and  purchased a gang-saw. This will be  installed by the middle of April  and   together  With   the   planer  will make this the most up-to-  date    mill    on    the    Peninsula-  rapable of turning out up to 24  thousand feet of lumber daily.  This should take care of most  of the limber needs of the Penin-  BUla. However it will take more  th/an expanding: businesses to  bring prosperity. Roads and  power are urgently needed.  ���ii  i.

James     Sinclair,    Minister    of  Fisheries. Mr. Sinclair spoke of.  his recent visit to India, Pakistan,   Burma   and  Malaya,   and  explained  at  some   length   the  ���Colombo   Plan    in   which    the  commonwealth nations are helping  backward  nations   to   Am-  .prove their standard.  Mr. Sinclair is a remarkable  speaker and carried his audience  .-along wiith him in a review of  these countries. He was entertained by many high officials  -during his tour, amongst them  Prime Minister Nehru.  Mrs. Sinclair accompanied him  on his -mission, and, we thought  what (a wonderful impression  these two young people would  have in their approach to these  problems which confront us  . today, of tremendous wealth on  ���one side, and abject poverty on  the other.  At the close of the meeting,  Dr. Duncan McColl thanked Mr.  Sinclair for his address, and re-  /     ,freshments were served by the  local association.

Firemeni have a saying that  "a clean building seldom burns".  This means that the majority of  all fires start in dirty chimneys,  trash piles, rubbish or stored  "odds and ends that accumulate  around the house.  Check your closets, attic and  basement for cast-off articles  that would burn easily. They  include such things as curtains,  draperies, table cloths, dresses,  bed clothes, lamp shades, coats  suits, wicker and wooden furniture, rags and linoleum. Clean  out your storage places. You  will be surprised at how many  burnable odds and ends are  really useless to you. Don't let  them make your home a fire  hazard.  Go after *the rubbish in> your  back yard, ini lanes and vacant  lots near your home. Collect the  rubbish and burn it. Your local  Firemen will greatly appreciate  your co-operation by having  your chimneys cleaned and other  combustible'articles cleared out  and burned. There have been  five chimney fire's:.already this  year, almost the total for the  whole of last year.  Halfmoon  Beams  F. Cormack  Activity in the summer places  was at a minimum last week.

The work of integrating the Government telephone  system with our existing systems is complicated and  detailed, and while it is well under way, it will not be  fully completed for some time.  Already telephone men have gone into the field to begin  the gathering of data on which to base a program of  expansion and improvement. This program will have  three main phases: (1) providing additional long distance  circuits; (2) giving telephone service to many of the people  who are waiting; (3) gradually improving the existing  plant. Already we have increased the long distance  facilities between Vancouver and central B.C. and more  circuits are to be added soon. Other improvements in  long distance service are planned for the near future.'  The North'west Telephone Company has acquired that  portion of the system within its operating area on the  coast from Campbell River and Powell River northward.  The British Columbia Telephone Company has taken  over the remainder.  exchanges in the territory taken over are as follows:  BY THE BRITISH COLUMBIA TELEPHONE COMPANY  Terrace  Haselton  Smithers  Telkwa���served by Smithers  Houston���served by Smithers  Burns Lake  Vanderhoof  Fort St. James  Quesnel  Wells���including Barkerville  Williams Lake  Alexis Creek  100 Mile House  Forest Grove���served by  100 Mile House  Clinton  Ashcroft  Lytton  Lillooet  Shalalth���served by Lillooet  Gibsons  Sechelt  Pender Harbour���served by Sechelt  Port Renfrew  Bamfield  Ucluelet  Tofino  Ahousat���(including Hot Springs  Cove���Boat Basin���Estevan���-  Hesquiat)  Thetis Island���served by Chemainus  Gabriola Island���served by Nanaimo  Hornby Island���served by Courtenay  BY THE NORTH-WEST TELEPHONE COMPANY  Quadra Island���served by Campbell River  Kelsey Bay  Alert Bay  Sointula���served by Alert Bay  Nimpkish���served by Alert Bay  Port Hardy  Queen Charlotte City  Port Clements  Massett  In addition to the exchanges listed above, we will  serve numerous places too small to be classed as exchanges.  These will be classed as toll (long distance) stations.  Several of the exchanges listed above have no switch'  boards of their own but are served from nearby switch'  boards. Telkwa, for example, is served from Smithers.  In addition to the exchanges, we are acquiring numerous  long distance lines, including those' between Prince  George and Ashcroft on the main telephone route to  central British Columbia.  A boundary is being set for each telephone exchange.  For telephones within an exchange area there will be  a monthly exchange rental based on the number of  telephones served by the exchange.  Telephones outside of an exchange area will be classed  as toll (long distance) stations, and a charge will be made  for all calls placed from such stations, even to other  telephones on theNsame line. There will be no monthly  rental charged for toll stations but there will be a  moderate guarantee required.  The rates which went into effect on April 1 throughout  the former Government system are the standard ones  in use by the two companies in accordance with their  officially filed tariffs. The companies follow the standard  practice of having business telephone rates higher than  those for residence telephones. While there will be an  increase in business rates, the basic rates for multiparty residence service will be reduced. Most sub*  scribers will pay less. There will be no surcharge for  Monophones.  Some short'haul long distance rates will be increased,  while generally those between the former Government  territory and the systems of the two telephone companies  will be reduced.  Exchange rentals will be billed a month in advance. In  order to distribute the b lling work evenly, ail exchanges  do not have the same billing period. For some exchanges  the billing period is the calendar month while for many  others it is- not. The billing date is clearly set forth  on the bill, and the date by which, payment is due is  also shown.  To each existing subscriber in the Government territory  we are sending a contract for signature, covering the  arrangements between him and the telephone company  which will serve him.  All Government telephone personnel will be employed  by the telephone companies, and will receive not less  than their old rates of pay. In general, the wage scales  of the companies are higher than those of the Govern'  ment system.

Meeting  The Annual Meeting of  Farmers' Institutes in District  E held last month has" been received by the local Institute.  There is much of interest and  Information in (tJheise{ reports,  3S well as a current picture of  activities.  Mr. T. Kuhn, the President,  spoke of the work of the Milk  Committee, that group organized to find out the wishes of  the dairymen, in regard to the  Milk Marketing Agency. He  thanked the men who had org-  ganized these discussion meetings, and who had done so much  work, in spite of lack of cooperation in many places, and  Jack  of financial assistance. He  Sechelt Child  Severely Burned  Six-year old Carl Joe of the  Sechelt Indan Reserve suffered  second and third degree burns,  wh&i h(is jclathing caught on  fire while playing near a slash-  fire near his home early this  week.  The brush at the rear of the  home had been cut, and was  being burned. A group of the  boys had drained a gasoline  barrel near by, to add to the  flames. One of the boys acci-  dently kicked the bucket containing the ga^lotnej, and Carl  was splashed with it. His clothing flamed immediately.  Terry Joe, Carl's twelve-year-  old brother  saw  /the   accident,  and immediately threw the child  to  the ground,  smothering out  the flames in the soil.  Carl's left leg is quite badly  burned, and in St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver, skin grafts  will be made. It is likely that he  will not be home for about two  more weeks.  assured  them   that  their   work  had not been in vain.  The farmers want-a plebescite  on the formation of a Producers'  Marketing Board, which would  have the power to control the  sale of all milk products in the  Fraser Valley Milk Shed.  Ben Greer of the Lime Committee' stated Lime Tonnage was  down 25% from last year. The  Surrey Institute resolved that  the joint Dominion-Provincial  Subsidy on Lime be increased  to half the delivery cost, and  removal of the present 100 ton  maximum.  Various Institutes sent resolutions asking for a lessening of  Educational Tax on land. Mr.  Flowerdew's report on Poultry  (indicated an ftmprovemefcit fcn  prices. More attention should be  paid to costs of distribution.  Here also is favored organSza-  tion  under the Marketing Act.  Most of the resolutions from  1953 were either "Under Consideration" or "No Action",  according to the report. The one  on Land Clearing methods had  been withdrawn, but that dealing with an increased appropriation for Agriculture had produced a slight  increase..  The hope is expressed that  through co-operation, insistence  and drive, British Columbia  Agriculture may someday be on  a par with Industry.  QUESTIONAIRE    ON  AGRICULTURAL   SCHOOL  The Department of Agriculture  Sis presently' investigating 'the  possibilities of an Agricultural  School for the Province of B.C.  The Minister, Mr. Kiernan, is  dirculating a questionaire, regarding a possible School. In it,  he asks" Would you favor the  establishment of such a school  in B.C:", "Would there be sufficient support to warrant such  a school?," and " Would your  sons or grandsons, or those of  members of your organization,  attend such a school?"  FOR QUICK SALES  USE THE COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIED  Beach Combing How  ganized Industry  Loggdng Firms', -Insurance  Companies and Provincial Government have combined in a  move to put the Beach-Combing  or Log Salvage, activity of B.C.  on a proper business footing.  This industry is one which runs  into the million dollar figure,  and is one which in the past has  cost the Lumbering Industry  many a headache and much in  revenue.  New regulations and legislation will stop wholesale log  theft, that has been adding to  the cost structure.  Every year, logs to the value  of $600.0DO to $1,000,000 go  adrift, on the way from -he-  coastal booming grounds to the  mills. At present, these logs are  insured, and the Insurance companies pay for them. They, then  become the property of the  underwriters, These then are1  the Beach-combers harvest.  Marked logs are redeemed at  .from three to ten dollars unmarked logs may be sold on the  open market.  Caspian bepch   combers  and  log-pirates   have   been  making  amounts    varying    from    pin-  money to good annual incomes  according to their activities.  Now, the non-profit organization, the Gulf-Log Salvage Cooperative Association, plus the*  new regulations, will tell a  different tale.  Beach-combers will be licer_-  sed.. Fifty dollars-for the first,  and ten dollars for each succeeding year are the fees.  There wil|i be log-receiving  stations scattered along the  coast. They will pay fifty percent of the market value of logs,  and marked logs "will be returned to their owners.  The Co-operative Assooiaton  will operate a fleet of 25 vessels,  end will nave aircraft, for spotting missing logs.  Co-directors of the Association  are Roy Campbell, of B.L.  Johnson Walton Co. Ltd., and.  George Barnes of Macaulay,  NicolLs, Maitland and Co. Ltd.  ervice Char  In Cheques.  Boomp-sie Lfaisyi  in Savings Account  The increase in service charges  on savings accounts was put into j  effect by the banks because of j  the cost of servicing the growing I.  number   of  cheques   drawn   on  these accounts, a trend that has j  been particularly marked since,  the removal of the excise stamp  on cheques. This was stated by  T.H. Atkinson, President of The  Canadian Bankers Association.  At the present time, the number of cheques drawn on savings  accounts is running at the rate  .of'more than one hundred million a year, and the increase in  the service charges was an  attempt to meet part of the  mounting cost of the bookkeeping involved. The increased  charges will still fall far short  of the actual cost of providing  these facilities to the public.  On  December   1st,   1953   the  banks voluntarily increased the  interest rate on savngs accounts  from one and one-half percent  to two percent, to bring it more  into line with the general level  cf interest rates in Canada. That  meant  an: increase  of approximately    $19,500,000.00    im   the  amount banks paid to customers  who maintain savings   accounts  with them'. Tlie increase in service   charges   will    not   much  exceed    $2,000,000.     In    other  words,  those  who hold savings  accounts in the chartered banks  will receive $19,500,000 in extra  interest each year and those who  use  the  chequing  facility!  will  be   charged   approximately   $2,-  000,000 in extra service charges.  It is only fair that those who use  the special   service   should  pay  a reasonable proportion  of  the  cost involved.  The new  service charges are  10  cents per  debit  entry   with  n allowance of one free cheque  for a quarterly balance of $100,  two free cheques for a balance  f $200 and three free  cheques  or a balance of $300 or more.
