'    '  Ph. 886-2116 -A Gibsons, B^C.  usese  at diriiler  Dr. Ken Benson, director, of  the bureau of local health services of the provincial government, explained the uses arid  financing of they Health Centre  proposed by ��� Gibsons Kinsmen  Club, at a dinner .meeting held  Thursday night at the Peninsula  Hotel.  Health centres of this. type,  he explained, are usually built  by a local,service club on land  donated by the. municipality, to  house the local Public Health  Unit. In addition they house baby  clinics,' travelling clinics such as  the travelling T.B. clinic, the Red  Cross loan cupboard; and various non-profit health organizations from time to time when  they niay heed temporary office  space. He considered the proposal to have the village hall included in the building-to be a good  one, both fromfthe point of view  of convenience and cost.  The provincial government, Dr;  Benson said, contributes 'a grant  of $1,000 per 3C0 square feet, and  the federal government matches  this grant up to one-third of the  cost of the building. In addition,  voluntary health agencies contribute, such as the B,C. Tuber-  culbsis Society, which bases its  grant on the population of the  area, and the B.C. Cancer So-  ciety��  A building of this type; he said,  is a credit to the community, and  would allow improvement of  public health services in the  whole area.  Paul Smith, architect, described the building proposed for Gibsons.5 It included facilities for  three; nurses, the sanitarian and  a medical officer. The total cost  of the tiuildihg, hot including facilities for the municipal council, would be in the neighborhood  of f 35;O00; It A would cost about  -$7,iB^to^i_ddf^^  ties for the council. Thfr community would have to raise in  the -neighborhood of $8,000 of the  $35,000 required. The building is  designed to be built with or without council facilities; and can he  extended at a later date as this  becomes necessary;  During the question period, Dr.  Benson, explained that the municipality would own the building  but the department of ; health  looks after operating expenses  and furnishing of the building.  It was pointed; out that the  Gibsons Kinsmen have already  raised $1,300 towards the cost of  this building, in addition to their  regular service work.  The meeting, under the chairmanship of Norman Peterson,  president of Gibsons Kinsmen,  was attended by 33 including rep.  resentatives of the Rebekahs, Kiwanis, Old Age Pensioners Organization, Gibsons village council, Sechelt Kinsmen, and local  health services.  Brownie Pack  awards given  Mrs. Thomas, the district com.  missioner, Mrs. Tyson, the Brownie Godmother, Mrs. Arthur and  Mrs. Williams were present at  the Gibsons 2nd Brownie Pack  meeting on Janl 22.  Principals at the enrolment  ceremony were Shannon Arthur  and Linda Williams Who made  their promises to Mrs. Thomas  and were received into full Pack  membership. .  Christa West received her collectors badge for her collection  of feathers and Wendy Beaudoin  was promoted to the position of  seconder.

As. the result of these selections, representatives will meet  Feb. 7 at Sechelt Inn to select  one representative to sit as a  school trustee. There is a vacan  cy among the trustees because  Don Macklam was forced to resign because of hisyf change of  residence from Port* Mellon to  Roberts Creek. He was chosen as  a representative for Port Mellon  and sat as a trustee. He was fore,  ed to resign as trustee and representative when legal advice advis..  ed him he was not eligible to  sit on the school board because  pf the change of residence.

Fire Chief William. Scott reverted a quiet year with normal  training activities being carried  out regularly. A project of the  firemen, installing toilets at the  Municipal beach is now practically  complete, he said.  The only  complaint he had was in connection with the Roberts Creek  school fire which was outside the'  fire protection area covered by  the fire department. The department Mr. Scott said, is set up to  guard Gibsons and a defined fire  protection area which starts at  Langdale subdivision and covers  the area to Seaview cemetery.  The secretary, Mr. Wiren reported on internal activities of  the department revealing a busy  year. without any serious problems. The executive he found  very helpful in all activities.  The president, Mr. Haley, reported the new method of acquainting members with activities of the department resulted  in good returns and the same  method ��� will be used in this  year's financial drive. The organization has shown growth  each year and is continuing to  grow, he added. He found the  firemen' sincere in their work  and' their department in top condition.

He thought getting through  this period without a serious accident was an achievement. He  complimented C. R. Rustemeyer  on his safety program.  Introducing the guests, Dr.  Ralph Patterson of C.F.P., Dr.  J. D Hobson of the Medical Clinic, and Mr. Milligan, Mr. Davies  said the real guests were the  'members of the 1962 safety teams  Ron Godfrey was chairman.  Dr. Patterson, technical director of C.F.P. spoke briefly on a  trip he took to Formosa to investigate a complaint that the pulp  obtained from C.F.P. would not  make good cement bags.  The plant was a 100 ton a day  mill employing 600 men with four  machines, one pulp, two kraft and  one fine paper. The men worked  seven days a week with only four  holidays a year. The plant was  so remote it was out of touch  with today's technological advanc  es and were using the wrong tech .  nique for making cement bags.  Dr. Patterson's descriptions of  the food supplied him and the  bewildering traffic he found in  Taipan where drivers used one  hand to steer and the other on  the horn making the city possibly the noisiest in the world provided moments which were humorous.

Remember the Gibsons - Sechelt MOTHERS MARCH Saturday Coast News, Jan.  31, 1963.  TheThrillThal Comes Once in a Lifetime  "WEBSTER  Yearly project idea sound  The Chamber of Commerce in Gibsons area in supporting a project for the year has spaded new ground for itself. Service clubs  have usually operated on a project for the year basis and good results have followed.  Selecting improvement of the bay area as a project for the year  is an excellent idea providing the thought leads to action and not remain as some writing in the minutes of the chamber.  *} Improvement of the bay is something which will have to be done  ������as the population increases and as the number of visitors increases.  Power boats now have a greater range than they ever had and their  numbers are growing rapidly Before the advent of the automobile as  we know it today, Gibsons harbor and many others along the coast  had a far greater number of visiting craft than we get today. Now  that the automobile has become a necessity and the power launch  has taken its place as a recreational facility, the days of crowded  harbors are closer than we think.  So, members of the Chamber of Commerce, do not treat lightly  the motion to make improvement of Gibsons harbor your project of  the year. Time continues on its relentless march arid ignores those  who choose to ignore obvious problems. If chamber members fall  by the wayside, someone else must do the job.  Skid road problem  The problem of doing away with skidroad and its occupants is  receiving considerable attention in Vancouver which has also the  distinction of having built one of the finest culture centres in Canada.  Queen Elizabeth Theatre and its appendages have cost a considerable amount of money. Nevertheless it will face the same difficult job of raising the level of culture in Vancouver as is being faced  in striving to save skidroad occupants from descending to lower levels. There will be a stronger voluntary effort by some to acquire a  ���wider experience in culture through such institutions as the theatre,  hut there will be greater difficulty in trying to use the same method,  in skidroads.  Social service workers in close contact with police courts have  pondered long over the skidroad problem. They know their chances  of obtaining conversions from  that way of life are not numerous.  Every large city has its skidroad, to which-a part of its population gravitates with an ease agreeable to the way of life they choose  to follow. Some of those victins are quite well educated. Some have  heen heard delivering Shakespearean passages beautifully when  asked by a magistrate how they plead to a charge of drunkenness,  and quote it with far greater ease tha* could most people who inhabit Queen Elizabeth Theatre.  Abolishing skidroad as a theory looks good but as a fact would  it be any better than abolishing the bar which was followed by prohibition which was followed by every hotel room becoming a bar?  Or would it be like abolishing red light districts with the resulting  wide spread operations throughout a city,  People have a way of wanting to live their own lives in their own  way. This we have to live with whether we like it or not. If anyone  knows of an operation which cleaned up skidroads elsewhere with  the resulting elevation of the occupants to a higher level of life, we  would like to hear of it. Liquor is not the reason why skidroads exist. It goes deeper than the bottle.  Early days of the telephone in  ��� 'ritish  Columbia   were  incorporated in a speech to weekly editors last October by G;; A- Kennedy,  vice-president   of  finance,  .C. Telephone Company. The  tditor of the Coast News believes  ��ne speech of sufficient impor-  ir.nce historically and in other  vays of putting theirX heavy" iri-  ��� rs. Here it is:  It has been recorded that in  'dy, 1877, just a year after the  ��� :lephone was patented," a line  \ as established between Jef-  ������ee's Clothing Store and Pend-  �� ^y's Soap Works, in Victoria,  'mother date given for this oc-  : urence is January, 1880, but  fnere is no doubt that Vancouver  stand  had the first telephones  i British Columbia, because in  me fall of 1877 there were phones  :-: operation in the coal mining  ' ehtre of Wellington,   near  Na-  aimo. ..  ^  Wet (goost.ifettts  Phone Gibsons 886-2622  Fred Cruice, Editor and Publisher  Published every Thursday by Secheit Peninsula News Ltd.,  P.O.

Davie Fulton's entry into the political field in British Columbia as leader of the Conservative party should have a stabilizing  influence on politics. This is a hope to say the least because the type  of political mouthings we have been having for some time has placed  politics on a low level, too low for the general good of the province.  When it comes to being astute, the type Mr. Fulton has displayed is much easier to live with than is the so-called astuteness of our  Social Credit premier. Trying to call white black and making a circus out of political life is not being astute. For Mr. Bennett tp spread  far and wide, some time ago, a long story from the Wall Street Journal depicting the terrible mess many of the states in the U.S. were  in and then proceeding to produce exactly the same mess in British  Columbia can hardly be classified as the operation of an astute  politician. . ������������    <  What the writer has heart from Davie Fulton up to now leads  him to hope for the raising of the standards ytt: politics among politicians in British Columbia, and the sooner the better.  Victoria certainly had the first  coinmercial telephone company,  with the formation of the. Victoria and Esquimalt Telephone  Company in May of 1880. On the  Mainland the New Westminster  and Port Moody Telephone Company Limited was incorporated  by the B.C. legislature on Feb.  18; 1884.  The British Columbia directory  of 1885, issued by R. T. Williams,  a publisher of Victoria, in reporting on the incorporation stated it was the intention of the  company to extend its lines to  Granville and the entire inlet in  the near future.  The same directory included a  directory of. Granville, in which  it stated: The post office address  is Granville or Hastings. Granville is situated at Coal Harbor  on the south side of the inlet,  a busy little town, containing a  number of general stores, three  comfortable hotels, churches,  telegraph office, etc.  voice and signal communications.  In. many respects  this   type of  local competition has been good.  The   telephone   industry'  was  never a  monopoly in the s'.rict  sense of the word.  In the  f'rst  place, 40% of our gross revenues  are -  from    long distance calls.  This is   the. area   in  which we  have"f always ..;,. had   to ���.���compete'  strenuously   with   the   telegram  and the night letter.    '  f    MPre. recently    the    railway  companies'. have expanded their  telegraph   business    to    include  Telex and other leased wire services,   and  they   are  now   constructing a microwave radio system across Canada from coast-  to-coast. One of these telegraph  systems    is    government-owned  and, in addition to being exempt  from the payment of income tax.  has the benefit of the resources  of   the   federal government. So  you  see, the  telephone industry  in Canada does have real problems" of competition.  continued to increase. I estimate  that for the year fending Dec.  81; 1962, $27,000,000 will have  been paid to our employees in  all parts of British; Columbia for  their services during the year.  This is the highest payroll figure  in the history of our company.  I do not think it is generally  known that we have 24,000 shareholders of whom 15,000 reside in  British Columbia. These 15,000  shareholders will receive over  $2,500,000 during the year in dividends. -  - ���'��� ������'".":  Prcpciitd try ��ri.e,8esep.rc!i Staff of  -H CY , t ttf ID1 A   t AM A DI AHA  Two stage roads. connect this  place- ;with   Hastings and New  Westminster,   while: its   water  communication    to    Moodyville  and other points on the inlet is  supplied by steam ferry.  Granville is the centre of the great  lumber  district  which - produces  the supply of logs for: Hastings  Mills, and absorbs nearly all the  trade of the numerous  logging  camps situated on English Bay  and the North Arm of the Fraser  River.   It   has aifrJailyOline^  stages   to   Hastings   and   New  Westminister,  its  distance from  the latter place being 12 miles.  The charter of the New Westminster  and. Port. Moody Telephone Company was amended in  1886 to give the coriipany power  to extend the telephone line to  Vancouver,  Hastings   and  English Bay and to change its nairie  to   the    New   Westminster arid  Burrard    Telephone    Company:*  This latter company was bought  out by a new  company  called  the   "Vernon and  Nelson  Telephone Company," which acquired  a   number of  smaller companies in the Nanaimo, Victoria  and Kootenay Lake  areas  and  changed its  name to   the B.C.  Telephone Company Limited oh  July  5;  1904. According to the  company's  first   annual   report;  March 15,   1906, the  capital of  the  company was $750,000.  Today, 56 years later, the capital  of the company is $111,000,000.1  In this field of business communications a virtual revolution,  is taking place, and I am told  that within a few years the facilities of the telephone company  will be used more for data and  image transmission than for  voice communication; More than  ever before the established telephone systems need to find new  ways to place it before its read-  vestment in plant and equipment  to greater use. More than ever  before we inust combine our  versatility * and inventiveness  with our industry's capacity for  hard work.  The B.C. Telephone company  is playing its part in these rather  amazing developments as the second largest telephone company  in Canada and as an influential  partner in the Trans-Canada  Telephone, system, By the end of  1962 we will have almost 590,-  000 telephones in service of  which more than 95% will be  dial operated.  Our 1963 construction program  will require almost $40,000,000.  Through our depreciation^ account and other non-cash items,  we are able to provide nearly  $20,000,000 each year towards the  total cost of our new construction. The balance must be raised  through the sale of additional  bonds or shares.  Sometime ago s,we closed the.  books on the largest issue of  common stock the B.C. Telephone Company has ever sold.  This is the first issue of capital  stock to.our shareholders since  the B.C. Electric Company was  made an agent of the Crown on  August 1,, 1961.. The issue has  been an unqualified success and  has confirmed our opinion that  our shareholders and the investing public have not lost confidence in the future of this great  province and the part in which  this investor-owned telephone  utility must play in its development.  This trend has naturally  brought up the question of automation in relation to job opportunities. Because of automation,  the people in the telephone business are working at better jobs  today. As machines take over  the more routine tasks, men and  women have been freed for more  diversified and interesting duties.  In this connection, it is interesting to note that while our dial  conversion program had the effect of temporarily reducing our  staff,   our  payroll  dollars  have  In the utility business, those  companies who are allowed to  make a reasonable profit for  their shareholders will in the  long run be able to serve their  customers better. This philosophy is, becoming increasingly  more evident in the decisions and  judgments of the utilities commissions andboards. It however^  carries with it the responsibility  of utility management to educate  and develop in employees, the  will to work for profit, to find  the ways and means of doing a  better job for their customers  and in so doing produce more  -and thereby make a better future for themselves, better earnings for their companies and a  higher standard of living for  their country.-  The investor-owned telephone  companies: in Canada and the  United    States    have    followed  these    guiding-^ principles    and'  have thereby developed the most  complete^ and modern' telecommunications systems in the world  Scholarship fund opens  While the telephone has been  with us for three generations,  only in recent years has it emerged as more than just a.tool  of voice transmission. Today ijt  is the symbol of a wide variety  of communications services;  ranging from the transmission of  data to the transmission of net-.  work television programs from  coast-to-coast.  This ��� evolution in the art of  telecommunications has resulted  in competition ��� very strong  competition. It cannot be said  any longer that the telephone industry is a monopoly, and this,  of course, was never more than  partially true. Today the telephone industry, operating under  strict regulations, is faced with  very real competition from non-  regulated enterprises providing  intercommunication services and  Gens of Thought  THE BEGINNING  The beginning is the most important part of the work:���Plato  Well begun is half done.  ���Horace1  That which the fool does in  the end, the wise man does in-  the beginning.���Richard Trench  To ask wisdom of God, is the!  beginning of wisdom.  ���Mary Baker Eddy;  A bad beginning makes a bad!  ending.���Euripides  Meet the first beginnings; look  to  the  budding mischief before  it has time to ripen to maturity.  ���Shakespeare  A group of Canadian educators  has started the Canadian Scholarship Trust Foundation, a * nonprofit organization aimed, at  sending more young Canadians  to university. Under the scheme  parents start paying now in preparation for the day that their  children go to university.  They open an account and  make regular monthly deposits.  When the child is ready to enter  university;, the principal from the  account is available to pay first-  year expenses.... .'-.;.  If the student passes the first  year, he receives a scholarship  in his second year, followed"by  similar scholarships in succeeding years if he continues to pass.  The scholarships, covering tuition, room and board, books and-  laboratory fees will be financed  from ��� interest accured by the  money deposited. If the child  does not go to university, the  principal will be returned, but  the interest remains in the fund.  Arthur Piggott, of Toronto,  former director of the Canadian  Adult Education association and  a director of the fund, said it  was started by a group of Ontario educators and businessmen  who were concerned that many  young Canadians dropped out of  university because of lack of  funds.  "When a parent is paying so  much a month into the fund to  send the child to. university, you  can be sure that the parent is  making sure that the child is  continually reminded that he  should aim for university," Pig-  got, a former superintendent of  schools in Calgary, said.  Piggott said prominent local  educators and businessmen' have  been asked to sit on the B.C. advisory council for the foundation.  He said the plan has achieved  wide acceptance across Canada,  with about 550 new people being  enrolled each month. He said  more than 5,000 are now enrol,  led.  A $100 enrolment fee is deducted from deposits, to cover the  cost of operating and administering the plan, Piggott said. Of  that, he said $10 goes into research at the national level.  Many uses for pulp  The Wall Street Journal viewing the use of pulp wood reports  that in the paper industry's  dream world, women wear paper  dresses and bake pies in disposable paper pans, men attired in  paper shirts lounge in paper  chairs and youngsters take dips  in paper, lined, swimming pools  arid camp out in paper tents and  paper sleeping bags. Whether  the public will buy this dream  remains to be seen. .  Paper makers are counting  heavily on these and other products emerging from their laboratories. Besides new consumer  goods,' companies are coming  out with such things , as paper  substitutes for aluminum foil  packaging, paper towels to replace industrial wiping cloths,  paper shop aprons, and throw-  away paper pillow cases for hospitals.  One of the paper researcher's  prime goals is to develop cheap  paper substitutes for textile products.    Paper    draperies    have  been available for years, for example, and more recently some  hospitals have been using disposable, sanitary paper replacement for textile items. Looking  far ahead, several paper companies are toying with the possibility of low cost paper clothing items It's known that  the Mead Corporation has developed experimental paper fabrics that have withstood as many  as 30 launderings.  A firm in Cleveland, Ohio, has  already; sold high school graduates about 25,000 paper mortar  boards for graduation ceremonies. The paper mortar board is  sold outright for one dollar to  replace the cloth models formerly rented for $1.25.  202 FT.  STEEPLE  St. Mary's church at Church  Point, Nova Scotia, is the largest wooden church in North  America. Completed in 1905, it  seats 1,500 persons. Its steeple  is 202 feet high.  When did Canadian horses  shine as boat paddlers?  In the last century. The horse  boat used to be popular as a  ferry in this country, in the years  just before the steamboat took  over. From two to five horses  would be harnessed on deck and  the power they supplied would  turn a paddle wheel. Horsi-boats  first appeared in Canada in the  late 18th century.., Orie record  tells of their plying the.Niagara  River as early as 1793. Toronto-  nians could take a leisurely trip  aboard a horsg-paddled ferry to  Toronto Island up to 1850. A  steamer took over in that year  and Dobbin returned ��� no doubt  thankully to the life of a land-'  lubber.   ;  Which colonial governor  secretly backed confederation?  Sir  Richard Graves  MacDon-  nell.   This   Irish lawyer served  the  British colonial  empire for  30 years iff the last century. He  began as chief justice of Gambia  m 1843 and became its governor  tour   years   later.  Posts in. the  West Indies and Australia followed. In 1864 MacDonneU was appointed   Lieuteriant-Goverrior   of  Nova Scotia with confidential orders   to   push Maritime Unipn.  Later, at the suggestion of Lord  Monck,    MacDonnell   took   the  lead in arranging the Charlottetown conference to discuss union  with Canada. This conference led  directly to   Confederation. MacDonnell was relieved of his duties in this country, but sent to  Hong Kong as  governor where  he remained until his retirement  in 1872. He died in France nine  years later, an early forerunner  of the movement to transform  the British Empire into a Commonwealth of free nations.  What part did the Swiss play  in early Canada?  The first person of Swiss origin  to figure prominently in Canadian history was Sir Frederick  Haldimand, early in the British  regime. The , United Empire  Loyalists included Mennenites,  some of swiss origin. They settled in Waterloo County, Ontario.  Among them was Christian Schneider, whose family bible traced .the Schneider, history back to  the canton of Berne in 1534.  Several early Huguenot families immigrating to Canada tirere  also Swiss. Some settled at River  John, Nova Scotia. Sir George  Provost, of French-speaking  Swiss descent, became a prominent Canadian in the last century.  The Encyclopedia Canadiana  also recalls that Lord Selkirk's  Red River colony; in Manitoba,  included 200 Swiss. They were  artisans; rather than farmers,  and had a -.. difficult time in the  pioneer community. For the protection of his colony, Lord Selkirk engaged more than 100 mien  of two Swiss mercenary regiments.  Some of the Red River Swiss  eventually moved to western Ontario, where they founded the  villages of Zurich and Berne.  The total number of Canadians  born in Switzerland is now over  6,000. A well-known Canadian  musician of Swiss birth is Ettore  Mazzoleni, principal of the Royal  Conservatory of Music of Toronto.  Does Canadian poetry lack  enthusiasm?  Hardly. Lack of popular interest and shortage of funds seem  to be no deterrent to the growth'  of poetry in Canada. This century saw the background of a  national movement for Canadian  poetry established with the  foundation of the Canadian Authors Association, "The Canadian Bookman" ��� "The Canadian Forum" ��� "The Dalhousie  Review" and the "University of  Toronto Quarterly"���all by 1931.  The late 1930's saw the emergence of E. J. Pratt, Robert  Finch, Frank Scott, A. M. Klein  and the Montreal Group, as major contributors of Canadian  poetry.  Several   poetry   periodicals  sprang   up:    "Contemporary  Verse" ��� "Preview" _ "First  Statement"   and  "Northern  Review."   Publishing   houses   contributed   various  anthologies  of  Canadian verse. Young poets got  out   university   publications like  "Fiddlehead" " ��� "Quarry"   ���  "Ubyssey"   and   "The   Tower."  Other poets, such as Irving Lay?  ton, Louis Dudek, Jay Macpherson, Raymond Souster and Fred  Cogswell    even    printed    their  works    privately.    British    and  American poetry magazines have  published   editions  on  Canadian  verse.    The    prairie    provinces  came up with poetry yearbooks.  The  McGill  Poetry  Series   was  launched in 1956. It may bo possible to stop the Canadian poet,  but neither  lack  of money nor  public indifference ara go'ng to  do it.

Still, titles, as they bei-  come distributed to more and  ri^ore people, lose the quality of  distinction. Sir Gordon Richards,  a3 successful. jockey, has the  same honorific as ..Sir. Francis  Drake. A. century or, so hence,  who but historians will know  tlrat there was- any essential difference between Lord Nelson and  LGfd,:Norlhcliffe? �����������^    .<*    .���*���?��'  -A recent instance that could  have become a classic had to do  with an irate citizen who was  prepared to argue, with lawyer  inj attendance, that he had gone  around that corner ori a yellow,  light, not a red one.  The irateness of the citizen1  was obvious to someone in authority and the youthful prosecu-  toivyon examining the summons,  had to note to the magistrate  that the citizen's address, was  the right street but the wrong  number, thereon, The Solomon on  the bench decreed that, of course,  the prosecution could riot proceed on a faulty summons and,  therefore, he dismissed the case.  The irate citizens was even  more irate when the magisterial  ruling dissipated what was to  have been a cause celebre.  e taker 4  years to mature  Scckeye salmon, the elite of  British Columbia's finny world,  normally takes about four years  fc rrrr.ture in southern coastal  waters.

Coast-Capilano Constituency  The question which every member of parliament is being asked  these   days  is   "Where,   do   you  stand on nuclear weapons?   Are  you for them or against them?"  j. .Personally.. .���!���>. am.-. 100   percent  against :.the?mkS6,* T'suspecU. fffe,,-  , most other Canadians y       ������j'T.f"  ���'���_��� But what'if  our questionerf'isf  from the Press Gallery? He does  knot stop there. He wants to know  what each" memtoer thinks about  '...four existing commitments. So he  'goes  on:   "What are  you going  to do with ourrelite air corps, and  our  $400 million worth.of Frl04.  'Starfighters'  in  Europe?   Donlt.  you know that the other North  Atlantic Treaty countries expect  them to carry out their nuclear  strike  reconnaisance  role?"   .  If you are a liberal or a member of the New Democratic Party you have been against this  commitment all along. But the  aircraft have now arrived. The  NATO deadline fof them to become operational is May 1, 1963.  So what do we do now? De we  go ahead and honor this commitment or do we turn the job  over to the West Germans, the  '_. British or the Americans? I am  in favor of renegotiating our role  but I can't see this being done  overnight.  .Then there's the" CF-101 Voodoo fighters and the Bomarc  rockets in Canada..'They have already cost us more than $200 mil.  lion. And like the Starfighter they  have been designed to carry nuclear warheads. True, they are  somewhat out of date and replacements will be coming along  in a few years time. But here  again our allies are  what we are up to.  We must be definite. I believe  ��� Canada must:   X ..  ���il.

Continue to press for disarmament , through the United  Nations.  Most members of parliament  would agree with this policy. It's  how to get out of,, our existing  commitments and .still retain the  respect of our': allies which'is  causing much of the exciteriient  around Parliament Hill these  days.  .

'. cr 885-9332  MAGNETIC INK ENCODED CHEQUES  FOR BUSINESS USE  '��  One nice sunny day in the Fall  I was  out in the garden  cleaning up the  dahlias  and  getting -  ready to put them to bed for the  winter. I had stooped to pick up  an    armful    and on getting up,\  found myself staring straight in- ?J  to the golden eyes of an exquisite i  little owl which was perched on 1  a low leafless bough of a small  apple tree.  In    great,    surprise Lbacked  away  slowly trying not  to   dis- '���'.-  turb this delightful little visitor.  But  he  appeared   quite   unconcerned : over   my  presence. He-  was so very perfect. A picture,  even in color, couldn't begin to  capture the soft sheen and soft  tones   cf   tan   of   his   marbled  feathers and he was just about  the size of a man's fist. This was  about 9 o'clock in the morning ;  and when I knocked off for coffee at 10 I thought he'd be goney  when I returned.  But no ��� he  was. now   sitting on  the  dahlia  rubbish which I had piled into  a heap;  It didn't seem right that a noc-"  turnal creature:should be sitting  for such a long time in the  bright sunshine so I decided to  see if I could pick him up and  put him into the shade of a nearby  cedar.   Apart   from  clicking  g^��  Ins beak (a sign, I later learned  of some displeasure) he made no ���  objection but ��� soon returned into  the sunshine and continued" to  Watch me work ��� or so it seemed. I tried poking a bit of hamburger into his mouth in case  he should be hungry but he  would have none of it.  Back into the house for lunch  and out again to find him in the  act of having his own lunch ���  all that remained Was: the breastbone, of ::a^tiny:bird with a>,.serap^  of pink flesh adhering to it. By ?  this   time   I  was  beginning to  think that there must be something wrong to keep a little bird  so long in one place and so-decided to call our local vet, a person keenly f interested in all furred and feathered things and he  said that  he'd be delighted  to  some    along    for  a   close look.  This was about 4.p.m. Little owl  evidently didn't like all this talk  of   vets   for just then he flew  silently away.  He was  a "saw-  whet" owl ��� a species so called  because his voice resembles; the  sound of a saw being sharpened   ���  ���-' can be very tame and sometimes hunts in the daylight. We  were  so  pleased  to have spent  the  best part  of   a   day in his  company and look for his return  again some day.���E. W.  RICHARD F.

Peterson's admirable' book The?  Gibson's 'Lairiiding Story, which  states (see page,. 43) that Dr.  Alex Forbes' cabin still stands,  quite intact on property owned  by myself.  'I well remember the old Forbes  cabin which stood hear the water's edge ��� it's construction being of split cedar ,logs and shakes  with a loft above. The main floor  at that time was gravel. This  building was situated about 75.  feet directly in front of where  my present home at Hopkins now  stands..  It was in ,1907 that the YMCA  held their first camp at Hopkins  Landing and took over a portion  of that property upon which Dr.  Forbes' cabin  stood.  The YMCA used this cabin as  their camp cook housie and the  loft for limited sleeping accommodation. This arrangement prevailed until 1911 when the YMCA  built a new combined mess hall  and kitchen and in a different  location.  This is the building which still  exists and is apparently what  Mr. Lester Peterson mistakenly  thinks was the original Forbes  cabin. No trace,of the old, cabin  which belonged to Dr. Forbes is  to be found today; it was completely demolished upon completion of the above mentioned new  YMCA mess halL  I am writing this letter in order  to keep the record straight and  to inform interested parties that,  the historical,cabin of Dr. Alex  Forbes, which was situated at  Hopkins, is unfortunately nonexistent and has been for the  past 50 years:  EG:  Philip Hopkins  Hopkins Landing  ���'Editor: we would like to ��� express .;��� our support of various  causes as reported; in- the Coast;  I\rews.

Joke of the Week  TNS  "Let's   see   that   last  bit  again before wt ban it." _ ,  How long did it  take  you  to  your  wife  ?  Did you just happen to see her, walk up to her,  ask her to marry you, call in the minister ���  right on the spot?  PERHAPS NOT ��� it probably took a lot of calls, and trips, movies, flowers,  candies, and.a lot of putting-your-best-foot-forward tactics. You had to sell  yourself. She had to know all about you.  IT'S THE SAME WITH ADVERTISING ... you can't "Woo" customers  with one Ad. . . you've got to "Call On Them" over a period of time . . .  you've got to win their confidence and be convincing.  CONSISTENT ADVERTISING wins the customers if it's truthful, if it gives  helpful ihformatfon, if it saves shopping steps, if it is backed up with in-  telligent, courteous service and honest values.  a  Tomorrow's Forgotten Man Forgot to Adverti���� Yesterday  COAST NEWS  Its Interest and Value Does Not Stop With the Front Page  Ph. 886-2622  ���� 8       Coast News, Jan.  31, 1963.
