Array r  PROVINCIAL  LIBRARY-  Provincial  Library-  Victoria,   B.   C.  SERVING THE GROWING SECHELT SUNSHINE   COAST FENINSULA FROM SQUAMISH TO PENDER HARBOUR.  Published in Gibsons, B.C.  November 11.1954.  Volume 8, Number 45.  Steady growth of" the use of  electricity on Sechelt Peninsula  is shown in the ninth annual report of the B.C. Power Commission, which reflect the steady  increase of population in the  area.  While the figures presented  in the report cover the year  ending March 30; 1954 it also  implies future development on  trie Peninsula by commenting  on the fact detailed .. distribution surveys were made in the  Sechelt to Pender Harbour area and also on part of Gambier  Island. Since-the report was  prepared announcements    have  made that work on the distribution system into the Pender  Harbour district Will be undertaken this winter.  In the Sechelt system in 1947  there were 423 residential power users and in March, 1954  there were 1,304. They paid  $15,609 for power in 1947 and  $75,754 for the year ending  March, 1954. Revenue per kilowatt hour' in 1947 was 11.2. cts.  and in, 1954 it was 4.5 cts.  There were 74 commercial  service users in 1947 who paid  $5,747 for power and for the  year ending March, 1954 there  were 154    commercial    service  users who paid $21,440. This  resulted in an 8.2 cents revenue per kilowatt hour in 1947  and 2.9 cents per kilowatt  hour in the year ending March,  1954.  t  Other power users in 1947  numbered 4 and in the year  ending March 1954 they numbered 15. The cost to this classification has risen from 2:7  cents to 3.3 cents per kilowatt  hour.  Taking in all classifications  of users of power on Sechelt  Peninsula there were 501 in  1947 arid 1,476 in the year ending March, 1954.      The revenue  pery kilowatt hour has dropped  from 8.1 cents to 4 cents.  There are now 66.7 circuit  miles on the Peninsula, an increase of 6.2 for the year.  There was an increase of 120  new/services during the year.  The report on transmission  in the various districts has this  toy say of the Peninsula area:  "A complete patrol and survey  was made of the more inaccessible portions of the Clowholm  to Sechelt 69 kv line in Novem-  hioved. This, precautionary  measure proved of value for  no' ��� interruptions took place  ber and apparent    hazards    re-  ���--!-?

Pender Harbour Hospital  Will Have Second Doctor  STAN  BOWDLER  ���'. Following^ acceptance by the  Hospital committee of St. Mary's Hospital at Pender Harbour  of a proposal by Dr. Playfair  that he change his temporary  status to a more lengthy tenure  and that a second doctor be  invited to join with him in the  practice associated with the  hospital The Coast News is now  officially advised that Dr. R!  Alan Swan will join Dr. Playfair before" the end of ��� the  month.  Col. E. S. Johnstone, chairman of the hospital committee  states that the commitee is gratified that Dr. Playfair and Dr.  Swan feel that the practice associated with St. Mary's Hospi-  Odd Fellows  to Discuss Trip  Dave Whiting will address  v*he Sunshine Coast Oddfellows  Lodge meeting Friday, Nov. 12  en the "United Nations Pilgrimage for Youth."  Mr. Whiting will discuss ways  and means of raising funds fpr  sending a representative of the  Sunshine Coast oh the pilgrimage to New York, to see the  United Nations actually at  work.  The pilgrimage is 'for boys  and girls of 15 to 17 years of  age, who are high school students in grades 10 or 11, at;  the time they are selected for  this pilgrimage. These students  are joined by several hundreds.  from Canada and the United  States.  On their return home, <eaqh  delegate, makes a report on the  trip, and upon the United Nations as they have seen it.  The Sunshine Coast Lodge is  hoping to be able to send a  relegate in the summer of  1955.  tal is now regarded as worthy  of the full time of two "doctors  and that the move will improve  and extend the medical service  the hospital offers to the district it serves.     -^  Dr. Alan Swan, who is at  present practicing at Duncan,  is a graduate of Queen's University.. He interned at St. Paul's  Hospital at the same time Dr.  Playfair and during those  years the plans for a possible  future partnership were formulated. Dr. Swan has taken special training in anesthesia  which will assist in the surgical  services of the hospital. Mrs.  Swan is at present working  with him as a nurse and is a  graduate in obstetrics. She will  assist him in his practice at St.  Mary's.'Dr. Swan expepts to  leave Duncan for Pender Harbour on or about Nov. 19 and  will start .his practice at St.  Mary's shortly  after  that date.  Officers of the Gibsons and  District Recreation Commission,  were elected at Monday's meeting at Bill Peterson's home.  Bill Peterson is chairman,  Bob Wilson, secretary, and Jim  Drummond Jr. is treasurer.  The executive is composed of  Norman Hough, Dr. Hugh Inglis, Ron Godfrey and C.' P.  Ballentine.  It was decided to register the  Commission under the Societies  Act.  The School Board is to be approached to ascertain the re:  ^uiremen,ts for the use,of the  school auditorium. Norman'  Hough, one of the trustees will  outline the position of the commission at the next school  board meeting. I  There is to be a meeting of  the district commissioners in  Gibsons on Friday, Nov. 19,  where Jerry Mathisen will outline further procedures.  It was agreed there should  be no canvassing of merchants  for funds to start activities. In-  Mrs. Alice French of Sechelt  has been asked what happened  to her old dog. Since she rated  ;a,<jvjite up in The Coast. News  arid.so spry, here    is    a    little  item.  Price Support  Debate Held  At' the Farmers' institute  ^meeiim^ last week . more... than,  usual interest was taken in Jo-  col school \ affairs and as each  month goes past it is hoped the  institute will ��be further enlightened.  The B.C. Federation of Agriculture's "Price Support" subject received attention with  each member favoring price  jupport. .In justice to other  districts which are really farming communities, the institute  visely refrained from making  any suggestions    on    incentive  rice or cost of production    or  parity price formula.'     .It   waa  mentioned   the    institute    feels  uality produce  should be recognized,    and    that    endeavor  hould be made to place farn>  ing on par with industry.  Need Helpers  in Blind Drive  More help is needed to collect funds for. the Canadian  National Institute for the Blind,  says John Wood, chairman of  the Gibsons and district committee set up to assist the CNIB  in this area.  "To date we have had a  fairly good response as far as  it has gone but we need further aid to cover a wider territory so if there is anyone who  feels he can help out please  phone or see me at the Wood  Hardware Store and instructions will be given any who desires to help in the canvas,"  Mr. Wood said,.  Those persons who have so  far neglected to contribute to  the fund will be able to leave  their donation at the Bank of  Montreal" office in Gibsons or  Sechelt, Mr. Wood said.  ste^ad, there will be membership fees, which will cover a  group insurance plan for all  participants in various activities under the scheme.  This Dog  on't Die  After listening,'to so many  people who thought Traddie  would be happier in the dogs'  heaven, seeing she is now nineteen, Mrs. French decided to  put her to sleep. She was-given  six tablets from a prescription  made up by the local drug  store.  After a nice long sleep, she  staggered in for breakfast, with  the other dogs.  All she had was a hang-over.  Evidently she has decided  she will die when her time  comes and not before. She however is mighty particular what  she eats, and shoves her food  around before she will take a  mouthful.

The  higher elevations and the rough  terrain which the line traverses  aver the greater portion of its  ength make it extremely difficult to approach or patrol in  ;he winter months. A few interruptions occurred but these  were either momentary or of a  ninor nature.  There are 23.6 customers per  mile on the Peninsula circuit  ind the investment per customer has risen from $208 to  $214.  Out of a total; - revenue of  ?104,884 for the Peninsula circuit net surpluses for the year  totalled $2,182 which goes into an accumulated stabilization  reserve now set at $15,768. Total costs for the Sechelt distri-  outuion area were at March 30,  1954, $370,093.  The report, covering operations of the entire B.C. Power  Commission operations for the  fiscal year ended last March 31,  reveals that gross revenue, at  $7,103,853 was 20 percent  greater than in * the previous  year, and 45 percent greater  than in the 1951-52 year. \  This reflects    the    increasing!  number of    customers; , served, '>  which was up about 6 1-2 per-.  cent during the year to a total  of 52,773 and the greater   use  of electricity.

CUB  CHRISTMAS  TREES  Cub packs from Gibsons, Sechelt and Wilson Creek are taking orders for Christmas trees,  the proceds from the sale of  which will be devoted to their  work. These young businssmen.  are working to raise money for  their projects, all of which, in  one form or another, are good  for the district. They will ap-,  preciate all the - support they  can be given in this venture.  Logger injured  Mel Germaine- was seriously  injured Saturday afternoon  while working on the Enemark  Logging operations near Port  Mellon. The crew was pulling  rigging when a long log choked  back about 20 feet, swung on  its cable and caught Germaine  on the head and shoulder. He  was in what was considered a  safe place behind a big stump,  with just the upper part of his  body above, when the log  swung.  He was flown to Vancouver  and sent by ambulance to General Hospital, where he has  been found to have a slight  skull fracture and three broken  ribs.  Latest reports were favorable, and his condition, is good.  HOTELS CONVENTION  B. C. Hotels Association 30tb  annual convention, announced  by J. IS.

The "Zita" is built of tim:  bers cut and sawn by Gus  from the woods on his own  land and from the forest nearby. He has set up his own mill  to saw the planks especially for  the job.  She is forty-five feet over all  and her mizzen mast* which is  now ready to step, is ,40    feet,  the foremast to be 60 feet in  height. A suit of sails, four to  date, has been tailored by Gus,  and is all ready, once the  masts are stepped.  The ketch is a thing of lovely lines, and rides, as one old  salt leaning on the wharf described her "like a duck."  Gus himself says she must  sail, before he will know how  well he has built her.  The hull was built in the  woods, near the sawmill, and  brought to Gibsons by Al Ritchey with his fiatdeck trailer.  She was launched    just   T clow  Mr.    Grant's    home,    into    the  Bay.  Asked where he intended to  sail first, Gus Mahon said he  didn't really know, but first to  Alaska, maybe, or down to  California. "But that is nothing, that is not a voyage" he  said, and perhaps for an old  sailor who has sailed all the  seas of the world, going to California is just like stepping  across to the neighbor's.  The "Zita" is named after  the queen of Eastern legend,  who was, to quote Gus again,  "such a superior woman    that  all women of India pattern  themselves ��� after "hef.': With  such a name,, he feels, she  should be a ship of success.  Building the "Zita"    was    a  project designed to keep    Gus  Mahon healthy    in . mind : and  body, after a series of illnesses  and accidents  that might have  made a less sturdy man give up  and become useless.      That the  treatment has been highly successful is   abundantly   evident,  when one sees the    old    sailor  stepping lightly about the deck  of his ketch, or working about  the masts and guys strung    to  j hold them. 2: Coast News Nov. 11, 1954.  oas  (Established 1945)  Published by Sechelt Peninsula News Ltd.  every Thursday al Gibsons, B.C.

To those not Quite  clear as to the meaning of that phrase it should be explained  that during the First War when a man had been killed he  had "gone West." . ���  There are time's when the average veteran of both  wars does a little reminiscing" and wonders what the ghosts  of -the various battlefields will be doing on this Armistice  Day'of 1954. They will wonder what, 'the "Nobby" Clarks,  "Spud" Murphys, "Nipper" Naylors and all the other nicknamed ghosts will be doing because there are quite a number of Nobbies, Spuds and Nippers scattered in the various  cemeteries throughout the world.  One wonders, what they would say if they w,ere able  to communicate with us mortals through ordinary conversation. Some of the First War dead would rightly ask how the  world was progressing following the victory in the "war to  end all wars" and the dead of the Second War would have  every right to be extremely perplexed over the results of  the victory achieved by sheer force of arms in their war.  Wars do not settle much in terms of'-international  boundaries but they do have a knack of bringing out inventions which on the one hand do not save lives yet at the  same time can be put to use later for the purpdse of saving  lives. For instance atomic bombs are terrible weapons but  leaving aside their horrible explosive force and putting that  force to work-in other directions does mean that civilization  talces a step ahead. The cost of all progress is jgreat  It remains for those who experienced actual battle or  the pangs of bereavement through war to think their own  thoughts during the two minute silence. Those thoughts if  placed on paper so that all could read would not be too pessimistic about the future of civilization. And. the ghosts of  "No-Man's Land" would most likely advise keeping the head  high and the mind, alert without too ma/iy'. regrets about  what is now "water under the bridge."

KENNETT  October stretched out in. true  fashion giving the first gale,  the first killing frost, and the  first dense fog of the fall season. Rain was very near normal  and confined to the earlier part  of the month. As a result, skies  have been mostly clear and  temperatures above average for  th latter part of th month, and  peninsula residents basked in  warm afternoon sunshine in  spite of early morning fog  which in itself was confined  mostly to the water and low-  lying areas of the lower mainland.  October had. 16 days with  rain for a total of 3.05 inches.  The fresh gale, recorded on October 20 caused power outages  on the peninsula, and clearing  skies following the gale brought  chilly overnight temperatures,  plunging the mercury to ^1.3  degrees in the early morning of  Oct.   25. "  Overnight fog banks played  havoc with shipping arid : airline transportation, but 'warm  afternoon temperatures helped  somewhat to dissipate the "fog  banks and not bring transportation to a complete standstill..  Warmest day of the month was  67.5 degrees on Oct. 16 and a  deciding factor contributing to  the fierceness of the- gale and  cold wave which followed.

LETTER  TO EDITOR \  Editor: ������' ,';  In reference to a letter   froni  C. Y. Nical in your  last issue.  I would say that it is. criminal waste, to use public funds to  use public funds to try and rei  pair the "Folly" (which .is. a  good name) that we now have  at Roberts Creek. At the same  time I do think that any monies being spent could, benefit  Roberts Creek greatly, if they  were used for a harbour for  small craft to anchor.  Rustic solitude is all very  well, but we do not. want to  become a' "Ghost Town," and  if we had a harbour for small  craft, many people would enjoy the convenience. Also may  I point out that from Sechelt  to Gibsons is quite a stretch of  water and a disabled ship  would surely welcome a safe  sheltering place in case of emergency. \  Mrs. Jen Monrufet.  ave  Vour  r&ipur^L- or  BUSINESS GREETINGS  Printed  as  you   like  them  Order Early From  5_5ggat_^s^JE��-^^  "Government  Liquor Act"  (Section 27)   ..

Illegal  attachments are in unexpected  places and are not always easily discernable.  A lineman recently suffered  painful injuries when his  climbing hooks slipped while  climbing a pole and in his fall  his arm was caught in the hook  supporting a clothesline. He  .wjas. n.pt using his safety H belt  because of the interference of  the clothesline.  If in descending a pole the  spurs strike the large headed  tacks used for illegally fastening, placards or entertainment  posters on a pole, the lineman  will invariably slip and might,  fall.  Householders do not seem  aware of the danger of electrocution when clotheslines are attached to powerpoles. Insulators  can fail and the resistance of  a wooden pole varies considerably Furthermore, a clothesline filled with a heavy load of  wet clothes under storm conditions could pull a pole over  and create a dangerous condition.

Here  is his article:  The weatherman predicts 40  mile winds and posts gale warnings for the Straits of Georgia.  Utility troublemen brace themselves for the blow. Why do  40 mile gales always blow at  night? Some statistician could  probably prove that half the  winds blow in the daytime but  it never seems that way.

In addition,  those who fail to notify may  cause themselves inconvenience J  through not receiving proper'  licence - renewal application  forms from the Motor-vehicle  Branch.

VANCOUVER 1, B.O.  News from Egmont  MRS. G. McNUTT  The Community Club is happy to report a long step in the  right direction ��� the government surveyors arrived at Egmont after a hike through the  bush from Agamemnon Bay,  with a request for a sketch map  of the suggested route and  some of the original walking  party to show them the blazed  trail. .  We know this does not necessarily mean that a road will  immediately follow, but we  now have hopes that the funds  will be voted in. at the next  session.  Incidentally, we understand  that the first survey of the  Agamemnon Road was made  over 26 years ago, and did not  follow the present route. It  was surveyed to . reach the  channel opposite Westmere and  was to cross Nelson Island,  thus entailing the use of two  ferries.  Dan Cummings was the    re  Notice To Electors  TAKE NOTICE that I have posted a copy of the VOTERS'  XilST for the Village of Gibsons Landing at my office at the  Municipal Hall. A COURT of REVISION to revise and correct the said list will be held in the Municipal Hall, Gibsons,  B.C., on the fifteenth day of November 1954, at ten o'clock  iri the forenoon.  ROBERT BURNS  Clerk  f^^^��^  cent victim of a logging accident at L.M.N, Camp. About  quitting time a block fell, striking him on one side. He was  immediately rushed to hospital.  Egmont thanks L.S.J. for the  very fine write-up he gave us.  Just a reminder however, that  all of Egmont is not on the  south side. Ten school children  come from the north side, and  a store and gas station are still  on the original site. The road  will not come to the north side  but the sunshine always does.  The Community Club held  its fall bazaar on Oct. 16. The  sum of $274 was taken in. Raffle winners were Doris Disney,  Ron Jeffey and Ella Cummings.  The community is still waiting to hear from the district  engineer as to what sort of reply he has received from Victoria concerning a road.  The usefulness of the government road terminus at Earl's  Cove is hampered by the fact  that access to it is over private  property.  Black Ball applied for a foreshore lease to put in a float for  small boats, but it appears they  have abandoned the project.  The Earl's have a float tuck-;  ed in a smali^ibay. The front isi  exposed to the doWh winds that  prevail at this time.of the. year.  Behind, it there is room for no  more than their three fishing  boats. This is the small remaining part of their foreshore.  Another complaint is that  there is a daily two-way bus  service from Powell River  which local people are not allowed to use.  On October 21, Cape Lazo  broadcast a message for Egmont  during his 8,20 p.m. weather  report: "Dot has a baby boy.  Mother and child doing well."  Then, we heard, "Hello Cape  Lazo, the 'Silver Sides' got  your message OK." This means  a son for Dot and Stan Silvey.  Congratulations ! Incidentally,  note the 'round about way two  places not 15 miles apart have  to communicate with each  other ��� Cape Lazo is on Vancouver Island, above Courtenay.

This  is one of several groups on the  Peninsula busily engaged in  getting another shipment of  cancer dressings off to the Cancer Clinic in the city. This* effort is much appreciated by  those using the dressings and it  is difficult to keep up with the  demand for them.  It is also difficult to find  enough materials to work  with and donations of old  sheets, tablecloths, even house-  dresses are most welcome. As  the dressings are used but onee  and then destroyed it can     be  seen that the need is urgent.  *       *       *  If you see pre-school children imitating "creepy-crawly"  ���spiders, or little girls scolding  ;imaginary husbands, think  Ihbth-ng of it It will be Stratford Kindergarten tinies rehearsing for their operetta  which is scheduled for December 17 at the hall. This may  seem an ambitious program for  such little tots, but it is all in  a day's iun for them and will  constitute part of their Christmas party.

BY  CHUCK TOMPKINS  As you will see elsewhere in  the paper the Gibsons and District Recreation Commission is  now a full fledged club having  elected officers and having laid  down some of the rules that  Will govern them.  The one that I am interested  in at this time is the idea of a  Booster ticket. This means that  tickets, or better still, membership cards will be sold to anyone wishing one and the money  will go into the commission to  pjay for equipment, etc.  j The commission, in my opinion, shoald give the holders of  ynembership tickets a few special priviledges like a reduced  price to any of the displays or  giames and assure them of the  Jjest seats.  I Some of the money from the  pale of these cards will go towards a group insurance policy  for the participants in any    of  the activities covered by the  commission. So when you are  approached in the near future  it won't cost you much but you  will be giving a lot, so let's all  be Booster Club members.  I am in receipt of a letter  from the B.C. Lions football  club explaining some of next  year's programme and also  stating that season tickets for  next year should be on sale by  December 15.  If any of the readers of this  column are interested in obtaining these tickets they can  contact me and I wiU give  them all the required  details.  There has been talk of forming a B.C. Lions Booster Club  next year and purchasing a  block of six seats for the use  of its members. This is a good  idea and anyone interested  should get in touch with me  soon.

Bob also  operates the largest chain of accordion schools in Canada,  and as a pioneer in the accordion field has-many firsts to  his credit.  He was probably the first accordionist in Canada  to play an entire programme of solo accordion  music and was also the first accordion soloist to play on a  qoast-to-coast hook-up. At one time he played as many as  five programmes daily on the air. Among his other firsts  was the first publication of a successful accordion method  (EMPIRE MUSIC PUBLISHERS) on the west coast. He  introduced the modem type of European bass fingering on  the west coast, and most progressive accordion, schools  now use this system.  Bob is very well known for his participation as a  member of such famous radio groups as THE VAGABONDS, and the RADIO RASCALS. As a member of the  famous RADIO RASCALS (RED, AL and BOB), he took  pert in making the.jfirat_.6et of Vinylite unbreakable records (Linden recordings).  .  It should also be mentioned here that when he injured his right hand and had a splint on his middle fingers, he never missed a programme, but continued to  play a solo each night on a programme known as WESTERN TRAILS. The injury to his right hand made him  think of teaching as a career and in this he has again  distinguished himself to the extent that 90 percent of all  successful students and teachers are graduates of his.  Bob was instrumental in forming the CANADIAN  ACCORDIONISTS ASSOCIATION and was its first president. He later resigned' from this post in order to give  more attention to his students. He will be leaving shortly  for New York and later Italy to study the latest teaching  and manufacturing methods. He has many original ideas  regarding design and'construction which he would .like to  put to practical use.  and has turned out thousands of accordionists, both professional and those that play the accordion as a. hobby.  Students that show special aptitude and wish to make a  career of the accordion may take teachers' training, and  upon graduation are placed in well paying positions.  STUDENTS PREPARED FOR EXAMINATION  All courses are graded at The Accordion College and students can be prepared for examination. Hundreds of students get together annually to receive diplomas and compete for medals and trophies. It is not unusual for students to- enter the festival in Vancouver from points as  far away as Kimberley, Karnloops, Victoria, etc.  INSTRUMENTS AND MUSIC  Instruments and music are supplied    free   for    beginners  while   taking  the trial lesson  course  and  the  Accordion  College continues to supply free music up to and including Grade I.  FREE BAND TRAINING  Students who get along well are chosen for band training  at no extra cost and in this case receive the eQuivlalent  of $14.00 a month in free band experience and training.  MUSIC PREVENTS JUVENILE DEUNQUINCY  Music has proved itself to be a great aid in helping children analyze their school work, and in many cases it  gives children a self assurance they would never achieve  otherwise. In a nation that is rapidly bcoming "onlookers"  it is always a pleasure to see a child who is a "do-er."  CHOOSING AN INSTRUMENT  Do not buy an instrument until you have discussed it with  your teacher.
