Volume 15,'Number 16, April 20 1961/  -,'"i -  7c per copyv v  A Complete Line  of Men's Cl0hing y\ ;|  Marine Men's Wear  Ltd.   ,  Ph.  886-2116 ~ Gibsons.   B.C.  Pt. Mellon  tour draws  over 300  On Sunday, April 16, a most  successful Open House. was held  at the Canadian Forest Products  Ltd. pulpmill at Port Mellon.  The occasion was part of the  company's celebration, of its ten  years operation of the mill.  Visitors were divided into  groups and conducted .through  the mill by members of the staff.  The tours included visits to the  scow dock, chip silos, digesters,  washers, screens, machine room,  turbine room*, .recovery "plant,  causticizing plant, and lime kiln.  The groups returned to the  company cafeteria. after their  tours and were served refreshments. Safety equipment, and  safety awards won "by the divis- .  ion, were on dispay in the cafeteria, along with a creditable  model of .the entire mill, constructed by pupils in Grades r  and II of the Port Mellon Elementary School. Booklets describing the plant operation were  distributed.  There was a good percentage  of young visitors, who showed a  keen interest in the operations,  particularly those involving  great heat such as the 2000 plus  .degrees maintained in the boilers and lime kiln. As always the  youngsters posed the guides  some of those penetrating questions which would- take about  three hours and a technical library to answer. The smartly  turned out Pender Harbour 1st  Cub Pack was among the visitors.  At rfihal count there -were near- -  ly 300 visitors, about 200 more  than had originally been expected, giving parts of the mill the  appearance of Grand Central  Station and calling for all reserves on the. catering. Needless  to say it was a gratifying-display of the public* interest.  %>*��*    ,        *���*  Hospital society approves  construction of new building  ]a meeting of members of St.  Mary's Hospital Society, attended by at least 200, voted almost  unanimously for construction, of  at new   hospital   in    this   area.

Board of Trade week  What is a Board of Trade? A group of businessmen devoted to  prove that the sun shines all the time in our municipality? Public-  spirited citizens banded together to see that the community enjoys  the highest possible standard of living? Supporters of free, enterprise  and.freedom vigorously opposing collectivism and socialism? Businessmen trying to bring new industry and more tourists to this area?  These are some of the most commonly held ideas about the Board  of Trade. Whatever is said about the Board of Trade," there is one  thing sure ��� it is, or should be, one of the most important organizations in the;town'.  With the church arid the municipal government the Board of  Trade forms a strong pillar supporting the welfare and the progress  of the community. The work of the Board of Trade touches nearly  every citizen. It takes a leading part in communuity affairs.  The interest of the Board of Trade is not confined only to' local  matters. Just as the citizen of a municipality is also a citizen of his  province and of his country, so the Board of Trade has provincial  and federal interests in addition to its local activities.  An organization of this kind is a stabilizing influence on a community. It is instrumental in focusing greater attention on municipal,  provincial and national affairs. It brings about greater understanding  among various segments'of the conimunity and makes the community  a better place in which to live. Boards of Trade deserve the support  and understanding of all the citizens in- each community. There are  three on this part of the Coast, one at Pender Harbour, one at Sechelt  and the third at Gibsons.  Editor: It is quite evident, from'  your editorial in the April 6 edition of your paper, (Who possesses what?) that you are setting yourself up as the champion  for' the cause of the commercial  ' interests wanting - to put a marina'iri "at "the old "public works  dock, as against the, residents of  the residential zoned district- at  this end of Gibsons. t,  The fact that the people here  are mostly interested in saving  the Headlands beach so that viaD  the people of Gibsons can use it  and enjoy it doesn't seem to matter to you. I am sure that ^io one  in this district is against a marina for the boating public but  one - established at this, proposed  spot can only end up in the loss  of the beach by pollution from  garbage and sewerage -. that  would be given off by a concefi-  tration of boats at that place, ft  is unfortunate that anything thjt  goes into the water there endup on the beach. !'  This beach is one that'is usdd  arid enjoyed by many residents  of this area and any extra  amount of money that might  come to the village through; the  establishment of a marina there  would not compensate for the  loss of the beach.. ',.J ���  As Vancouver has found to its  sorrow, a polluted beach, is a  great loss to all the people.,;,,  It is riot hard to understand  your position in this mattery Like  all private business the first concern has to be profit,1 that is the  way it has to be to 'stay in business, therefore anything that  smacks of commercialism always  holds out the chance of paid advertisements.    .��� ,. .  I "would say this time, Mr. Editor,  your slip is   showing.        _  V.  H. Eckstein.     j:  ������ tt�� j>  Editor's note: The situation  which the Coast News has  brought into the open by the editorial of! two weeks ago is not of  Coast News making. If this pa  per did not exist the situation as  regards 'water traffic would not  change one iota. To point out  that the harbor at Gibsons is a  natural haven is no crime. Natural expansion in that natural  haven will take care of itself regardless of the Coast News attitude. ������>���;.'  An Important Harbour  The importance of Gibsons harbour as a port is soinething one  should consider when assessing the future of Gibsons village. Wharves  al Hopkins, Granthams, Roberts Creek, Davis Bay and Sechelt have  all been closed to heavy traffic and only Gibsons wharf has had any  large amount of money spent on it.  '�� Some of these wharves are now in private hands, having been  turned over by the federal government to commercial ventures. Gibsons wharf is one which the government feels is a necessity. Over the  last three years about $150,000 has been spent on improving the wharf  and float facilities attached to it. This must mean the government,  taking a long view of the situation, regards Gibsons .harbor as the  logical place for the berthing of vessels.  To suggest that there will not be pressure in the harbor area in  the years to come will not be facing up to fact. Gibsons harbor is  slated to be the chief harbor, sheltered as it is, for a considerable  area. How long this will last no one can tell. Sechelt is striving to  get a breakwater which would be to the advantage of that area.  Under present government policy only commercial fishing and  other water commerce gets priority when it comes to spending money  on protective and docking facilities. How long this will continue, with  pressure mounting from pleasure craft is not known. A natural harbor invariably becomes a place for seaborne traffic. Gibsons has a  natural harbor.

INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENTS  B.C.'s industrial accident  toll in 1960 was the lowest in  the past decade. The Workmen's Compensation Board's  annual report states that 78,-  437 workers reported injuries  durfng the year, of which 22,-  716 resulted in time lost from  work of more than three days.  In 1960, the WCB awarded  $19,660,924 in compensation  as follows: time-loss payments,  S7.915.890: pensions, $7,474,-  382; medical aid, $4,270,651.  The forest products industry  accounted for 26.4 percent of  the injuries; construction was  next with 21 percent and trade  and service had 19 percent.  By Les Peterson  Up until the middle of the  1880s, man was attracted to the  west coast' of British Columbia  by the lure of furs, gold, fish  and timber. Only after then did  he begin to pay any great attention to" land itself as a^treasure here.    Land, and not any of the-elements   that   had   brought   other  seekerc here during the years before,   was  what   George   Gibson  wanted;! ! Seeking    it,   ! he    had  brought his family from Ontario  to the infant settlement that was  soon to burnyand arise from its  ashes as the city of Vancouver;.  There Gibson and his two sons,  in order that they might ��� venture  still farther in their quest; built!  a   sloop,  which  they  called  the  "Swamp   Angel."   In   this  vessel  the three men made a voyage to  Oyster Bay,   near  what - is  now  Ladysmith, on Vancouver .Island.  May 23, '86, while crossing the  .! Strait   of Georgia-, Ori the return  trip,   a   strorig!fsputh-east   wind  blew them across! to the mouth  of Howe Sound.  They sailed in  through    the   western yeritrance  and   anchored  for   the  night   in  a small sheltered  bay  near the  southern   end   of  Keats   Island:  The next morning, May 24, they  crossed  over to   the   bay   inside  the     headland.     There     Gibson  found the setting so much to his  liking that he laid claim to District    Lot ', 686i.  -The    next    day  George Junior claimed D.L. 685,'  and    Ralph    subsequently    preempted Pasley Island.  During the same,, year the family   were   moved   to   their   new  FISTONLESS   ENGINE  Don ���__...

So it was that'y^hat|is now  the village of Gibsons/Banding,  or Gibsons, received ^its^incep-  tion through  chance'. "A'&k.   -'  George Gibson, in 1886^-was in  his 58th year. He had' retired as  lieutenant from the Royal Navy,  arid "could have" "anticipated a  life of comparative leisure and  solitude. He did neither. He entered into, in the creation of his  new home, a series of activities  which were to keep him busy; for  most of his remaining years, 'and  he encouraged other., settlers to  come andylive around him.  . At the; close of his "Fraser  Mines. Vindicated"\Alfred Wad-  dingtori had written .". . '���. instead  of throwing obstacles in the way.  ���y of   the   colonist,- give  the   poor  ��� bona , fide. settler a right of pre-  y eruption; .and a premium of land,  taken from the wild waste, to  the deserving father of a numerous family."  ��� Whether or not this exhortation  had any effect on succeeding legislation, pre-emption did come  into being, ��� and on a generous  scale.'While this gerierosity. presented a lure to the potential settler, it' became ? a deterrent to  the establishment of permanent  settlements. The size of the plots  of land, one-half mile square,  kept  families   too far   apart   to  make establishment *of a community possible1..' Inland pre-  , emptors, especially, , would soon  find distance a continuing, and  finally'' an overwhelming, obstacle, and would leave.  Meanwhile, however, they  came.

In 1887 , the  couple moved west on one Of the  first C.P.R. runs into; Vancouver  and took a house in the Mount  Pleasant district. Their next-door'  neighbor- there was the; Fletcher  family.

A number of libraries  specialize in some. particular  subject. One of the mOst interesting libraries : on this continent is Founders Library at  Howard Univer,siity, Washington, the .largest institution of  higher education fqr negroes  in U.S. Recently this library  published a list of its material  on Africa which included over  five thousand  items.  Ori the marble at the rear of  Founders' "Library is an inscription which is a tribute -to  the service which,a library performs in a community:  "Books are voices from past  ages, records of the present,  heralds of the future, torches  to the unenlightened, common  bond of cultured men, trusted  friends developing the mind,  restoring the spirit. Enter thou  into this company and seek  truth.",  *    *    *  These words have special  meaning to all public spirited  citizens who. wish to see library services expanded in  their own community.** How  well do your public libraries  meet the needs of the residents  in your area?

McGill  and the University of Toronto  both offer graduate librarian's,  courses.  *    *    ��  One of the fine services a.  librarian performs, is 'helping  adolescents find books on vocations and biographies of men  and women who have been outstanding leaders in the kind of  work which attracts thiem. The .  Young Adult section of both  non-ficitibn arid fiction books  in the public library is a rewarding -place for a teenager  ���to visit.  If you have any doubt in  your mind about the vital function the . public library performs in community life spend  a little time observing the people who visit ��� a library-���from  the tiriy tots in search of a picture book, to the New Canadian�� who ���wonder if there is  a book in their own language,  or the senior citizens who read  fiction for enjoyment or seek  a "how to do it" book on a favorite hobby. For the youngest or for the oldest reader,  a book which brings enjoyment  and information, which stretch  es the imagination, may become indeed, "a trusted  friend."  In a most attractive new  book, "Books, Young People  and Reading Guidance" by  Hanna. and McAllister, the  authors point out, "Whatever  the purpose of reading, whether to forget troubles, to broaden . knowledge, or simply to  pass some time in a pleasant,  quiet manner; reading is fun  ... a deeply satisfying experience."  The doors of your public library swing open to welcome  parents and their children to  delight in, the printed page.

The dark days of 1939 found  very few lads  thinking of returning  to   school.

But some whale oil was still  used to lubricate guns and ma- .  chinery and the few remaining''  whaling vessels with their  seasoned ''orews chugged forth  from Nanaimo harbor to bring  it home.
