A debate took place between  Commissioner Ritchey and Robt.

Im supporting the action, of  the Commission in raising their  indemnities thjfs ��� yefer, Mr.  Ritchey justified the action as  necessary in order to try and  reimburse the Commissioners,  in part, for the time they spent  on Commission activities. He  also stated that each member  of the Commission was out of  pocket to a considerable amount  because  of his  duties  as  Corn-  increase   village   commissioners.  ���Liiacmnvties.

Pedestrian paths or sidewalks  came under discussion,, as- the  result of an editorial in- the  Coast News. It was stated thafc  Marine Drive was becoming ��� a  most danigerous area to pedestrians,   because   of   the   lack   o��  onissioner,   and   that   the   raise (paths, and that speeding on the  was justified at this time.  Mr. Macnicol took the Commission to task for not discussing such matters at election  time and for increasing taxes  by 5 mills, and then taking back  20% of the increased taxes in  the form of increased indent  ndties. In view of the overspend-  Sechelt Road of Motor Vehicles  rus-hing to catch the ferry was  becoming a menace to. life ancE  limb. Improvement of roads to  suit motor traffic had aggravated the danger to pedestrians*  although it was admitted that  people who walked were vexjf  often careless themselves.

Phone Gibsons 45W  Box 128 Gibsons British Columbia  it  ilonald  School and living  The students and staff of the Elphinstone Highschool  are already making plans for their Graduation Ceremonies.  Another group of young people will have completed the training and gained the knowledge that our Highschool has been  able to give them.  Many of these boys and girls will be going straight out  into ithe work-a-day world, and once again, we wonder "Are  they Ready"?  Those students who go on for further training, either  scholastic or technical, will have from.a few months to a few  years repreive. before they face the rigours of the world and  its work. They will have a little longer period in which their  decisions are mainly" made for them, in the matter of  "Mother, what'll I do Now?'' and in how they shall go about  doing it.  All of the students, however, have now to make up their  minds as to the direction in which they planning to go.  Teachers, parents and friends who act as guides and mentors,  or as interested advisers,, have a tremendous responsibility,  too.  The old and worn saying, "As the'twig is bent, so will the  tree incline" is just as applicable now as ever. All well-meaning persons who are offering the advice, parents who are  directing the aspirations, teachers who are counselling the  the graduates, should be extremely careful that they do so  wisely, and the path along which the student is directed is  one in which he is capable of following, mentally and physically, with pleasure and profit to himself and others.  New Traffic  The race is on ��� but it's one of the kind in which the  contestants don't see each other, and so can't measure .the  speed required from the progress of the others.  The work on Gower Point Road is well started, as far as  the tearing down to build up again goes. While this is in  hand, the temporary wharf is being started at Pender Harbour, to rush the start of traffic from Powell River, West-  view and other towns in that neighborhood.  The temporary slip will permit vehicles to come down  now, instead of waiting for.the completion of the Agamemnon  Bay Road and the permanent Ferry Wharf.  As the M.*L.A., Tony Gargrave, told us, there is a potential addition of 2500 cars to use the Highway. Not all at once,  thank goodness, but a ferry-load of them at once, and several  ferry-loads daily.  It would seem that we who have had the.road all to ourselves, but. foi* a handful of summer visitors, and week-enders,  will now have to share the road. We will have to sharpen our  driving practices more than a little, and keep diem that way.  Darting out of side roads will no longer be the comparatively  safe habit it was. Roads should be more clearly marked.  Above all, Gibsons traffic, both pedestrian and vehicular will  need regulation.  Until the Gower Road is completed, School traffic will  bear watching. After completion. Village traffic to 'the Post.  Office Corner and down to the wharf will be congested.  It is hoped that the traffic officer will be on hand, with  power enough to handle the problem.  ROAD SOLUTION?  Having acted in* an advisory  capacity to the government, and  being a protege of one of our  Cablet Ministers it ocurred to.  me that it is my civic duty to  advise the people of Sechelt  peninsula (without fee) how. to  improve the deplorable con^  dition of their roads.  Secheit Peninsula as you well  know is connected to the mainland by a very narrow neck of  Land and here is the crux or  focal point of my solution.  First we must run a pipeline  to Victoria to tap the large  volume of gas and hot air emanating from the legislature.  Then, some Saturday night  when the populace of Sechelt  is at Wakefieid and would not  notice the noise, we use the "hot  ;.iir�� to blast Sechelt Peninsula  free from the. mainland. We.  then have "L.S.J:" whip us up  u hyclddic Squamiisih wind  (Suamish to. you) which blows  us in the direction of Victoria.  The natives of this town think-  I jng this to be a revolt, gather in  large numbers  to   throh  stones  at  us   which  we   use   for   road  balast (having none of our own.)  They soon disperse but. are  followed by hordes of civil servants each armed with a red  handled pick and shovel, from  surplus forestry stocks.  This limitless supply of manpower soon whips our road into  shape.  The goverment then appeals  to the former liberal party who  they maintain have a pipeline  to the "Hot place" to pump up  enough    molten    surfacing  material.  Vve now find ourselves with  first class roads but marooned  near Victoria ��� We are no  longer  the   "Sunshine   Coast'-'.  Incidentally due to the miscalculation of a high tide Francis Peninsula, (an Island at high  tide) was left behind and the  Blackball Ferry now has a 20  mile run which would put those  residents in the happy position  of getting their nickle's worth.  Should anyone feel that my  solution does not merit investigation ��� please contact me  through this column.  LB. Clueless.

If this is the  sample of ball we are to see  ithis year then the people who  did not think we were ready  for "Senior B" are in for a great  surprise.  These are two very fist i'T.nms  and to watch a gome, such a^ this  is really a pleasure for any  scorts fan. Aagin: I say that the  people of the Peninsula are  going to see some first class ball  this year. I am giving the first  star to Tommy Reynolds of  Wilson Creek who , chucked an  execpltionally fine ball game,  and was never in very much  trouble at any time, and the  few times he was he pulled  through like a veteran.  .. second star, goes to  '������'!�� >Ues" Kuwick of Port  Mellon who pitched a winning  ball game but happened to be  on the wrong team to win. The  third star goes to veteran Dick  Grey of Wilson Creek wiio  played a very good game at  third base and was a menace  to Port Mellon every time he  came up to the plate. Before  season rumors had ith-ese two  teams at tlie top of the league,  .and if exhibition games mean  (anyttiiing they look like they  will probably be "there.  I have been questioned on' the  way I cover games and give out  the stars. Only one game at a  time will receive complete coverage and be given stars, if  there is another game the same  day it iwill receive second billing ias I have nioit the time nor  tlie columin space to give every  game a full write up. Under  this system every team will  have the opportunity of getting  the full write up at least once  every two weeks. Two stars will  be given the winning team and  one, if there is one, to the losers.  by Patricia Frew-  Routine hospital  therapy has  really paid off for radio announcer    Bob    Hutton.    Maybe    not  money-wise,    but    certainly    in  thousands of smiling youngsters.  Bob,   or  as   the   younger  set'  says,   Pal  Bob,   learned   wood-  carving  in   Tranquille  Hospital  in   1947  and   1948.   Being  anything but serious in1 nature, Bob  found, much to his chagrin, that  his figurines always managed to  turn out humorous.  His  fisherman with a hook in the seat of  his pants  and  his  hunter  stepping on a skunk's tail are still  in existence.  It was just a short step from  this hobby to his present occupation of making puppets and  putting on. shows for the Vancouver small fry. The project is  an all-Hutton presentation with  Mama Verna Hutton making the  puppets' costumes and ten-year-  cld Donna helping Daddy pull  the strings. Bob says that eight-  year-old Bob junior hasn't got  into the act yet, and spends most  of his time sitting in the front  row, eating.  All Bob's puppets have a message ��� and the kids learn and  lovve it. Stars of the show are  Paddy   and   Chief,   the   Indian.  Paddy  is  to  the   puppets  what  Jiminy   Cricket   is   to   Pinochio  and he preaches "Love Mummy  and  do  what   she  says."   Chief  the Indian is the safety man and  gives   out   safety   hints   to   the  youngsters.   These  are  all  singing rhymes and the kids leave  the show humming  them,  singing them and what's more REMEMBERING THEM.  There are dozens of other  characters in the show, but one  cf the favorites is the Professor.  The professor is a funny and yet  very human little man who  thinks he's clever but actually  isn't. He's the puppet who, when  asked, "If you put your left  hand in; your pocket and found  $1 and your right hand in your  pocket and found $2 what did  you have?'' Answered, "Pal  Bob's trousers on."  Corny, maybe, but the kids  love - it and that's all that  matters to Pal Bob Hutton.  a  The insurance agent provides  you more than protection when  you buy insurance.

Gasoline, benzine, naptha  and similar fluids should never  be used indoors.

This happens  when thhere is enough air to  provide oxygen, but not enough  air to carry away the heat that  is caused when they give off  vapor.   When  these  vapors   get  hot enough, they burst into  flame. Oily rags should be  stored in air-tight metal containers. It is best to keep them  outside the house.  by Mrs. Swan  The Cabaret dance sponsored  by .-die Community club was  well attended and enjoyed by  the good crowd.
