Power Commission Chairman
T.   H.   Crosby,   June   15,   1954.
The British Columbia Power
Commission is pursuing its assigned task of service to the people
of this province.
It is the objective that service event is for m'emfbers 'only, and
will be expanded as, when and, will have the same fishing areas
where needed, and that, electric and weighing-in stations as last

ago, this utility has cai'ried out its
work with relatively-little fanfare, i
but with marked success.
Be assured that sound, economic
expansion of facilities will continue
and that efficient provision of adequate, reliable electrical service at
cost always will be the watchword,
of the Commission and its staff.
That this objective has been and
. will be followed is demonstrated by
a brief;summary of developments:
Power requirements for the fiscal
year ended last March 31 were up
32.3 per cent over the previous
year: generating capacity was increased 35 per cent during the same
period; customer total jumped 15
per cent to 52,773, and average cost
of electricity for residential service,
decreased for the seventh' time in
as many yfears, and, at 2.7 cents
per kilowatt hour, how is. almost
naif the amount paid in 1947. Av-i
erage power.cost to all classes of
consumers, .2.4 cents per kwh, is
25 per cent less than seven years \
ago. '

Camphell La"ke. and surveys for
possible future sources of storage
and power are "being carried'out. at

Generating capacity of seven of
the Commission's 19 d'iesel generating plants will be increased this
year, a new power district will be
established at McBrlde, and the
program of. improvement and extension of service will continue.
Mr. Hewlett, manager for the
B.C. Power Commission at Sechelt
has not received any definite information as to possible power developments for Pender Harbour. He
states that he has read newspaper
accounts to the , effect that the
Pender Harbour Power possibilities are delayed temporarily awaiting the outcome of the negotiations
with Powell River.
He admits" that Pender Harbour
has been promised power at various
times,   but   he   cannot   give   any |
definite information, since he himself has been.given none.

Iti  imust be noted that these youngsters meticulously picked up all  the rubbish from the beach and  ipark, .their own arid much that  had "been left by other picnickers,  leaving it neat and tidy for the  'Junior High School picnic which,  followed the same late afternoon,  and evening. "; l  iFAREWEIX PARTY  Eric Lindwall was guest of  honour Saturday night- at the  \Legion Hall when the Roberts  (Creek String Orchestra entertained at a party. That these  folk who can play long-hair  music can also evoke shorfe hair  ���parties was # evidenced by the  sounds of laughter and hilarity,  ���emanating from ��� the building.  Progressive games, dancing and  wiusic were enjoyed by the mem  hers and their guests. Prize,  winners of the games contest  were Mrs. A. Anderson and Mrs.  __. Inglis. ������''���'  (Following a delicious supper,  iMiss Jerry Jervis, on behalf of:  the Orchestra members, presented Eric with a travelling  clock.  Eric,   who   was   brought   up  (here,   and   last   year  graduated,  (from   Elphinstone ���High,. School,  is now  being  transferred   from  the local bank to Kaslo. He was  a member of the Orchestra, playing  first  violin,   and  also  sang  with   the.  group    on   several  occasions. .The  Badminton  CSub  } will miss 'him next season also.  .   Eric  is  the   only  son  of Mr.  'and Mrs. J. Lindwall. The best1  wishes of theSr many friends go  to this enterprising lad who will,  never allow the grass to grow  under hte  feet,  nor his feet to'  stray far from the path of duty.

The   same   charge   was    laid  against Robert-Edward Hume of  Port Mellon, who drove his car  off the  road   near the  Seaview  cemetery.    He   collided   with   a  m'ound of rock and earth, doing  approximately    $800.00   damage  to his vehicle. He, luckily enough  was  not  injured.  'Hi's plea  that  he'ran into the soft shoulder of  the road and was unaible to control    his   car   met   with1' slight  sympathy from His Honor.  For exceeding the speed limit  'near Sechelt, Walter E. Smith,  of Sechelt, was fined ten dollar's  and costs.  Failing to have -a Special  Fisheries License, because as he  said he was unable to find the  Fisheries Office at Pender Harbour, cost Alfred August, an  Indian of Sechelt, a fine of $20.00  'and costs. The License would  have cost him one dollar.  Gordon Alex Murray, Seaman  from Vancouver, paid a fine of  ten dollars and costs 'for driving  :at excessive speed 'in the restricted area at Sechelt.  Robert Elgie Low, of Halfmoon  Bay, defended hy 'H. Rankin,  Barrister of 'Vancouver, had  charges of giving an Indian  liquor, in contravention, of the  Indian 'Act, dismissed on account  of insufficient evidence, and the  failure of two Crown Witnesses  to agree, or to substantiate their  statements.  Harbour' Notes  The delegates are all back iron.  Victoria, having gone to talk about  hopes for the St. Francis Peninsula road, and whether there will  be power in Pender and when. Although the delegates came back  without any definite promises on  either count, some of them do feel  more  optimistic  than  in   the .past.  Rumor hath it that a plan is now  being made for the subdivision of  Irvine's Landing. This is a large  district, and there will he a large  number of lots in the subdivision.  Mrs. A.
