Circus Truck  In Difficulties  The 10:20 p.m. ferry was  held up for about one hour on  Sunday night due to a large  Royal Canadian Shows truck  getting tangled up on the ramp.  The semi-trailer truck, which  contained a mechanical fun-  house, was about to back on to  the ferry when the brakes  failed to hold. The driver, Bill  Mohahi of Vancouver, quickly  jack-knifed his unit partly off  the loading ramp, thereby  avoiding a serious accident.  There were several cars park-'  ed in the path of the truck.  One of the cars had several  children inside.  After some three-quarters of  an hour work, the truck was  finally pulled back onto the  ramp by,a three-ton truck of  Eric Inglis of Gibsons.  The carnival truck, which  was returning from an engagement at the Powell River Exhibition, remained in Gibsons,  and boarded a ferry next day  -without mishap.  the public at the playground on  Gower Point Road only to  have vandals wreck the efforts  of the club is revealed in a letter to the Gibsons and District  Ratepayers' Association from  the Village Municipality of  Gibsons.  The letter follows:  Dear Sirs:  In view of the considerable  correspondence in the past between your association and  this Corporation concerning  the very real need of public  toilet facilities at this point for  the convenience of the public,  our Board believes it might be  well to summarize to you a report made by Commissioner  Peterson at a meeting on September 21.  Mr. Peterson is a member of  the local Kinsmen Club, which  organization has done a great  deal of valuable work in developing playground and similar facilities for the benefit of  the public. An important part  of that work, both in labor and  material, has been the installation of toilet facilities at the  playground in D.L, 685, adjoining the Gower Point Road. AH  labor and material for the  whole work has been contributed by the Kinsmen and their  associates, and while the toilets are primarily intended for  the use of the public using the  free playground facilities they  are still open to public use.  Mr.    Peterson    reports    that  ejyer since-vthe toilets were   in-;  r��$ajie?d^'t^^^  to repeated and continuous  acts of .vandalism. Fixtures are  torn away, and broken and  generally smashed up; besides,  in many instances there has  been vandalism of the most  filthy nature. Very often the  facilities are found to be in  such condition as to be almost  impossible for their intended  use. This can only be "most discouraging to a group which has  spent considerable money and  done a great deal of work im  an effort to provide improved  conditions, in health, welfare  and recreation, for the residents  of this community and the general public.  In making this- report Mr.  Peterson stressed that he did  not wish, by any means, to be  opposed to further installation  cf rest rooms for public use; on  the contrary, he believes the  necessity for such conveniences  is great, and growing. But he  pointed out that the bitter experience of his group confirms  like   experience     of  bilities) have been in the mind  of Boards of Commissioners in  the past when considering the  need of such facilities. We believe they have also been mentioned during discussions by  your Association. Because of  the interest shown- in the matter by your organization it is  felt that you should be made  aware of some of the local actual experience.  Robert Burns, Clerk.  T MELLON  CHURCH IS  DEDICATED  Vandals Damagi  Cemetery Sips  The signs at the Seaview  Cemetery were recently damaged when a vehicle collided  with the gate posts. Weathered  over the years, and badly'damaged, it was found that the  signs  could not  be  repainted.  Citizens of Gibsons have  joined resources to produce  two new signs, each ten feet  long and 30 inches wide, painted in silver-grey and black, on  a white background. These  are to be erected on the new  posts placed , by the cemetery  committee.  Metal for the signs was donated by Laurie Speck Sheet  Metal, lumber by the Gibsons  Building Supplies, money for  the necessary paint by C. P.  Ballentine, and the actual  building of the signs, and the  painting, by Ted Fladager of  ttieiPacific^Signs^e^^  "Seaview Community Ceme  tery.".

Otherwise in a very short  time vandals will so wreck the  installations that they are unusable, and the capital expenditure has been lost,    with    no  Bus Service  For Children  The Sechelt Motor Transport  has inaugurated a new public  service, this time for school  children. Commencing on the  morning of Oct. 4, a bus will  start from the north end offcMa-  rine Drive, at Glassford's Corner, in Gibsons, and will take  school students up the hill to  both the elementary and the  high schools.

H. U. Oswald, and  the; Rev. H. J. Bevan, both of  Gibsons, officiated at the dedi-  cation and opening of the  Community Church at Port  Mellon on Sunday, Sept. 26,  when the church was filled to  capacity.  After the opening music, Mr.  Oswald offered the prayer invoking the Divine Presence,  followed by hymns and responsive readings and the . lessons  from the old and the new Testaments. Mr. Oswald then dedi- i  cated the furnishings of the  church. Further prayers and  hymns followed.  Mr. Bevan then dedicated the  building, and gave the address,  which was again followed by  hyihns, including "God Save  the; Queen." Mr. Oswald asked  a blessing upon the newly dedicated church, and the congregation? The Quartette, which had  opened the service with the  Port Mellon Junior Choir,  played the closing music.  The day was beautiful, and  the church decorations were  lovely, and in excellent taste.  Guests were present from  Hopkins, Granthams, Gibsons  and Gower Point. Out of town  guests included Mr. Dan Williamson, Mr. and Mrs. Peter  Ben,tley, Mr. and Mrs, W Ma-  han^Mr. and Mrs. C. M.'

VISITS PENINSULA  Rose Marr McCIan  Miss Rose Mary McCIan,  VON regional . director for  Western Canada, was a visitor  to Gibsons area during the  past week, on a routine    visit,  one of two    she    makes    each  year.  The purpose of the visit was  to consult with the Gibsons  branch on administrative and  business matters and to consult with Miss M. Godwin, the  VON nurse and help her with  problems that have arisen.  j Miss McClan's experience in  VON work includes staff and  supervisory positions in the  provinces of Ontario and Quebec. This is her first visit to  the Pacific Coast area. Residents of the Sunshine Coast  have given Miss McCIan a  grand reception and she reports  she thoroughly enjoyed her  visit.  The territory which Miss McCIan covers reaches from Winnipeg, Man., to the Pacific  coast. She was recently moved  from Ontario to cover the  western part of the VON regions.  Support From Public  A public meeting was held  by the VON in Roberts Creek  Legion Hall on Sept. 24 for all  residents of Sechelt Peninsula  interested in VON work. As a  resut of this meeting is was decided unanimously to carry on  the work of the VON in this  area.  It was felt by many present  that many people were not sufficiently, acquainted* with VON  work. It was pointed out that  the VON is a public service and  should be used to the fullest  extent by the public. The VON  provides professional nursing  of the highest quality in your  own home and under direction  of the  patient's   physician.  The meeting was informed  that the people who give their  time and money so unselfishly  to maintain this service urge  that it be utilized to the fullest  extent. VON service is rendered to all regardless of creed or  ability to pay. . ;  Ratepayers Ut^,Increase  Urging  an  increase    in    the I hospital facilities  are available  B.C. government grant to the  local V.O.N, the Gibsons and  District Ratepayers Association  in writing to minister of welfare, the Hon. Eric Martin, directed attention to the benefits  denied to those who are living  in a rural area as compared  with city residents.  In the cities the letter stated,  hospital and clinic attention is  available to people without  charge, and they incur very  little expense in the matter of  transportation  costs.  People re-  have to find their way to hospital, sometimes by taxi or ambulance, at a cost they can ill  afford. Yet they pay their five  percent tax just the same as  other more fortunate people  who derive more benefit from  our  present hospital system.  The Ratepayers Association!  feels that if the grant made by  the Government were material-,  ly increased, insofar as the  VON is concerned, a larger  number would benefit from  their nursing service and demand  for  hospital  accommoda-  siding  in  a  district  where    no tion would be reduced.  THAT BALL? GAME  Brief Strike  Aboard Ferry  The hilarious Old Timer-  Firemen softball game Sunday  afternoon raised $105 for the  VON.

When the ferry was due  out on the two o'clock run, the  staff did not report for duty.  They reported themselves as on  strike.  Seamen of the crew decided  they would walk out in sympathy. They were advised by  members of the Seamen's Union that this action also was  unauthorized, so they returned  to work, and the Bainbridge  left, approximately 55 minutes  late.  The coffee bar was closed  for one run, but was re-opened  when the staff was advised of  the illegality of its action, and  returned.  Their dispute over wages,  vacations and overtime is presently  under   arbitration.  fair has arranged for a prominent Vancouver surgeon to come  to St. Mary's Hospital for a  few days at regular intervals,  to assist in elective surgery. If  sufficient support is given, this  move it means that residents, of  the Peninsula can save the entire expense of a trip to Vancouver. Peninsula residents requiring such surgery are advised to get in touch with Dr.  Playfair at St. Mary's Hospital  DINNER DATE CHANGED  A dinner, entertainment and  dance planned by the Sechelt  Eoard of Trade, originally  scheduled for Oct. 1, will now  be held on Oct. 9 in the Legion Hall at Sechelt, at seven  p.m.  top hat and tails, as worn by  Alf Whiting, to red flannel,  'longs' and a red beard sported  by  Dave Herron.  T;.he oldest Old Timer, S. Armour, once a ball player of  considerable reputation, made  the opening pitch. His form belied his 92 years. The game was  played to its official nine innings, with the Old Timers holding the score to 14-13.  Stan Mason as Minnie HaHa,  Eddie Machon as a lady in a  kimona, John Wilson, corpulent with pillows, and all the  rest of the 20 players of the  team, payed ball as well as ev-  eiything else. Chuck Tompkins  al the mike of the PA system  kept up a running commentary  on the plays and the side-plays.  Fred Holland was pitcher for  the OT's while his young son  Steve, 12 years of age, pitched  for the Firemen, who kept up  their end of both the play and  the by-play.  Vic Metcalf came on and relieved Fred Holland in the  pitcher's box, and pitched right  good ball.  Collections were taken up_  not once, but three times, by  the gentleman in formal garbv  and to Alf's persuasion was added Chuck's voice over- the PA,  to such good effect that a delighted audience, with the aixf  of some of the merchants, dug  down, a little deeper each rotmct  until the sum of $105 waft  reached, to help swell the exchequer  of the VON.  7- "��� The Coast News    Thursday,  September 30,   1954.  xt Coast Mjexus  (Established 1945)  Published by Sechelt Peninsula News Ltd.  every Thursday ai Gibsons, B.C.

This is the theme of the National Fire Protection Association for Fire Prevention Week for 1954. The slogan  applies equally well to children and trees. Carelessness with  fire may cut down either or both, in their youth.  You will read a great many things next week on Fire  Prevention, and you will be urged by radio voices and  sound effects, 'to be careful with fire, to use every care and  every means at your disposal, every kind of knowledge and  training, to help cut the huge annual losses to individuals,  companies and co-operatives, and the nation. During Fire  Prevention Week therefore, you will be made very conscious  of the need to exercise every care.  When the week is over, do not lean back with a huge  sigh of relief and say "Well, now we can relax." That is the  tendency with humanity, whether it is fire-prevention,  Christmas spirit, or the feeling that originally inspired  Mother's D,ay. We are prone to forget, except at the season  itself, when we are forcibly reminded.  In the matter of Fire Prevention, you will receive an  abundance of tips on how not to do things, information on  how to do things, to keep Fire your very obedient servant.  Disregarding these or forgetting them, may someday make  Fire your most demanding task master, your most devastating enemy.  Care for your homes, your businesses, your yards  and barns, your farms and forests, as well as your' children  and they will "grow up, not burn up."  on the phone, and we feel sure  that Mr. and Mrs. Bus .would  have paid the bill rather than  sit in, darkness, had they been  contacted.  So now you know, pay up or  else. Not much consideration  shown here. No wonder we remember Mr. Cook and his  kindly  approach  in     collecting  what is due the'   B.C..    Power  Commission.  Now the Veterans have to  dig up an extra $3.00 .to have  the meter installed again. Perhaps they were at fault in not  paying at the deadline, but  why not phone first and give  warning?  A Legion Member.  Letters To The Editor . .  Editor:  I seem to have raised the ire  of your correspondent, largely  because she thinks I haven't  been here long. I was familiar  with Gibsons and Sechelt long  before the taxi men in question  ever heard of the place and  the SMT yard was all bush, although what that has to do  with it I can't say. And yes I  know the taxi stand very well.  It was in answer to their letter  to the public complaining that  they Weren't allowed' in the  bus yard with their cars that I  thought in all fairness I should  say a word for the SMT as I  am a satisfied customer. And I  know to my sorrow that private cars have been asked to  move out of the way of the  buses too, but I felt the request  was justified. I coud have" parked outside just as. well and  should have done.  I rather expect that SMT has  its own taxis because of popular request. There have been  times when they were needed  badly. I believe they also have  a truck and sincerely hope the  transfer people won't write to  the paper  about it.  As to courtesy extended by  the bus drivers, I have seen  them assist women with parcels and children, quite frequently and I am sure that if  your old lady with the bundles  had let it be known that she  would like assistance the bus  driver or a fellow bus rider  would have been happy to  comply.  I am sure nobody begrudges  these men a living��� I have  used their taxi when I couldn't  get the others. Two taxis are  not enough for the size of the  place. Ask your two taxi drivers if they would not do - just  as Mr. Laurence does if they  were  in  his place.  G. M. Orkney.  was with a feeling of pleasure  an satisfaction that I read Mrs.  C. Day's story in the Coast  News Sept. 23, giving the list  of the different positions the  graduates had accepted. It is  indeed good to know they  have ali made a start and it is  to be hoped they will continue  to do well in their respective  positions.  Katherine W. Funnell.  Editor:  We have heard a lot from  time to time about the high  handed attitude of the local  B.C. Power Commission, but  the last one takes the biscuit.  The Canadian Legion, old veterans mind you, were cut off  their light. The caretaker's  left, in the dark all night. Reason was: bill not paid. Great  sum of $2.75. Reason was that  cheques must be signed by  treasurer and president, and  were a little late in getting together. However, the Legion is  by Stan Bowdler  Mr. and Mrs. Royal Murdoch  have been visiting at Nimpo  Lake in the Chilcotin country  enjoying a pleasant stay, with  Bob and Grace Leith who formerly  lived  at  the  Harbour.  Ken Bell, popular timber  cruiser of the Harbour travelled to Vancouver for a serious  eye operation. His wife T-helma  who was with him during the  operation, reports he is now  well on the mend, which, is  good news for his many friends  here.  Mrs. Wray and Billy have  just, returned from Vancouver  where they attended a hearing  resulting from a serious car accident in which her son William was injured last July. The  accident took place on the  Lougheed Highway at Boundary Road. William Wray's car  and another car collided and  while Mr. Wray was seriously  injured in the hospital, the other driver laid charges blaming  him for the accident. Mrs.  Wray tells the Coast News that  after her son spent 14 days in  hospital and underwent a major operation, it was some consolation to find that the hearing found that William Wray  was completely cleared of any  responsibility   for the  accident.  The new doctor at St. Mary's  is really making things hum.  He's not only capable, but  about as keen and resourceful  as you could hope to find anywhere. Apart from items in the  news about him he is also busy  figuring out ideas to keep waiting maternity patients happily  occupied with leathercraft'and  other home arts. And the Hospital Committee is just as busy  with improvement plans, the  latest being definite approval  of a new laundry. Construction  will commence in the near future and will employ local labor and use local materials  wherever available. The new  laundry the committee announced, being in a separate building, will make available more  space for further expansion of.  hospital  facilities.  Mr. and Mrs. Horace Williamson have just returned  from a visit with their family  in    Vancouver.    Mrs.     Donald  Ross has also returned from a  visit to the city.  Mr; John Vickers, one of the  West's best, known commercial  artists, and his family spent  last week end at Madeira-Park  Motel while in the Harbour  visiting Stan and Helen Bowdler at Garden Bay.  Seoheit To Have  New Water Tank  The concrete foundation has  already been poured 'for the  new fifty thousand imperial  gallon tank for the Sechelt Water Works, which is being  erected near to, but higher  than, the one in-' present use,  according to Mr. E. F. Cooke.  The tank is the same diameter, but is three feet deepr. The  all-concrete foundation, which  contains all the necessary pipe  connections, does away with  the wooden floor.  John Toynbee, of the Toynbee Construction Company, has  been the contractor for the  foundation. The Walker Bros.,  of the Sechelt - Building Supplies, have supplied the cement  and sand and gravel for this  phase of the work.  As soon as the concrete is  set, the Pacific Coast Pipe  Company will begin erection of  the tank proper. They are sup-  ulying the materials.  The residents of Selma  Heights will find their service  improved to a considerable extent, clue to the slightly higher  position Of the new tank.  Selma   News  Mrs. Walter Waddell, Selma  Park, has returned from Saskatoon, where she visited her mother, Mrs. C. Carpani, and also  her brother Gordon, and his  wife and .family.  Mrs. Waddell says the prairie was looking beautiful,  grass and trees green after a  wet summer. Saskatoon has expanded tremendously, and the  piping of natural gas to the  city for heating of homes and  buildings has made a difference  to the cleanliness of the city.

It is     contrary    to    literary  standards, writing    ethics    and j  common sense    to    tackle    the  above subject at    the    present  time. So here goes.  Not knowing how any comments of mine might be received, and realizing that if I slipped verbally I might find myself in cold water for some  time to come, I contemplated  at considerable length (about  5 minutes) before setting down  the following.. .  Trie first thing which strikes  a newcomer about the people  of Gibsons is their open hearts.  No fooling.  . The second thing is their  open arms. I refer of course to  the way they use their arms to  describe the sizes of fish they  have caught recently. When  describing an average fish, the  typical Gibsonite's arms are  extended to full length. But  possibly the piscatorial offenders can be forgiven. As the restaurant sign I once saw queried  "Is it that all fishermen are  liars, or do only liars fish?"  The third thing which catches the attention of the newcomer to this fine town is the  way the pedestrian rules the  roost in matters traffic. Mothers pushing baby carriages use  the white line as their guide  while drivers subserviently give  them ample room to do their  middle of the street strolling.  In Gibsons the situation is reversed from that in most places. Here the drivers endanger  themselves in order to protect  the pedestrians.���at least the  older drivers do.  But all-in-all the people of  this Sunshine Coast town are.  very nice.  Especially  that  cute waitress  who works on the ferry!  o   o  Police Court  Cherry is handling advertising  and Doug Murray the tickets.,  ���   .*-.   .* ��� *  At the regular meeting, Mrs.  Jermain took the chair,, in the  absence of President Wm.

Next week, October 3rd to  9th is Fire Prevention Week,  end Sechelt's Chief Harry Billingsley offers the following  ideas and thoughts for cutting  down on fires.  If, in the next few moments,  your house should catch fire���  and one does every 80 seconds,  chances    are    somebody      was  careless  with  match   or    cigarette.  These  firebug  "somebodies,"  pays Fire Chief Harry Billingsley, can be blamed for one out  of every three home fires.  They're the folks who      un-  away  thinkingly  toss  cigarettes and matches; they  kill themselves smoking in bed  and don't give a hoot if their  kids play with matches.  But they are only the -worst  of the six home firebugs who  start over 85 percent of our  home fires, according to Chief  Billingsley.  Here's how he would grade  the other five on the basis of  National Fire Protection Association studies of home fire  causes:  Booby Prize No. 2 goes to  the chap who doesn't inspect,  clean  and  repair    his    heating  lighted 1 once a year���and thereby causes one of every four home fires.  No. 3 is the electrical wiz���  one of every eight homes that  burn���who dotes on frayed  cords, overloaded circuits, misuses appliances and thinks 15-  ampere safety fuses are for  sissies.  1'nen there are the two  guys���more likely gals��� who,  between them, manage to start  one of every ten house fires; a  kitchen firebug has a greasy  stove, leaves unwatched burners going to ignite potholders  and   other   easy   burning   items  system   and   chimney   at     least I piled toi near the open flames;  her sister is the dilly who quickens fires with kerosene, dry  cleans with gasoline and keeps  these fiery fluids in her home  in nice breakable bottles, leaky cans, etc.  Home firebug No. 6 performs  his trick with hot ashes and  coals ��� puts them fresh from  the stove or furnace into wooden and cardboard containers,  or dumps them on ,the basement floor next to wooden  walls, old newspapers and rubbish and thus accounts for one  of every  11  home fires.  How do you stop these home  firebugs? The Chief has this  Fire Prevention Week advice:  "One of the best ways is to  have your home inspected for  fire hazards by experts��� your  firemen. Your fire department  can help you spot and correct  those unsafe conditions which  could cause a fire in your  home."-  Urging everyone's co-opera-  tion in the Sechelt Home Eire  Inspection Program,.the Chief  pointed out that the International Association of Fire  Chiefs are sponsoring a nation- .  wide campaign for just such  home inspection as the most effective means for cutting the  terrible toll of fire deaths  among  children.  Fire CAN Happen  To You  Prevention Is Good  But  When That Fails  A Policy With Us  Protects You From  Financial Disaster  Cherry.  Whitaker  Agencies  Village  Center,    Sechelt  Box   126 Phone  63  The weather was good, the  crowd was good, and to add a  professional touch the first  ball was thrown by Mr. Sam  Armour, a professional player  of years ago. That's the way  the "Old Timers" and the Firemen began the battle on Sunday as one of the strangest ball  games in the history of the  Peninsula.  Mr. Armour admitted after  he threw the first ball that he  didn't have the stuff he had  when he played against the  great Connie Mack a�� good  many years ago. But in this  writer's opinion he still has  lots of "stuff" to come out and  start a ball game at the age of  92.  The "Old Timers" pulled every trick in the bag to beat the  Firemen 14 to 13. The Firemen  proved themselves good sports  and at times    stole    the    show  The star for the "Old Timers" was Dick Fitchett who displayed terrific ability at base  running as well as making a  sensational bare handed    catch  What  could   you  buy    |  With  Your  Present   Insurance?
