"Public charges cannot be left  to whim," he said. "The Public  Utilities act allows plenty of profit for transportation operators.  The government, in 1951, was  negligent in its duties when it  failed to protect the travelling  public from arbitrary increases  in (transportation when it gave  the Black Ball Ferry Company  monopoly rights to cross the  Howe Sound and Jervis Inlet."  Mr. Gargrave told the legislature that the Black Ball Company  had given good service, but, the.  provisions of the private bill under which they operate and the  subsequent contract signed by  the government in 1951 are faul-  rby and should be amended. Jt is  not necessary to suggest that  large profits be made from transportation.  The local Member told the  legislature that the provincial  (government should purchase the  ferry systems across the Howe  Sound and Jervis Inlet and  charge capital costs to consolidated revenue,' t and charge only  those fees necessary to recover  operating costs.  He also urged the construction,  of Woodfibre to Sqaiiamish Road,  improved steamer transportation  on the coast  for  SAND  GRAVEL  CEMENT  ROAD GRAVEL  A Full Line of Lumber  Phone: 60 ��� Sechelt ��� 60  WOOD REQUIRED  Tenders are invited for the supply and delivery of 20 cords  of 4-foot second-growth fir wood, for the School Hall at Gibsons,  B.C., to be piled, ready for measurement at a designated place  on the hall grounds.

PEOPLE WE LIKE  We don't like everyaody we  meet and all people do not care  for us. However, we have met  those whom we like immensely.  We don't care for those who are  negative constantly pulling down  and finding fault. The old saying  "about those who get out o��t the  wrong side of the bed each morning applies to many. We should  check up on ourselves when we  say: "That man (or woman) ?gets  me down." We instinctively turn  away from (those who are strong  on their dislikes. There are those  who look for the best in others  and always seem to find it. Some  improve on acquaintance.  ..,. *   *   *       .y  Years ago I knew a Scotch  lady living on a farm in the north  country/ It may have been *her  broad, Scotch accent, hut shejwas  unpopular until there was a  scourge ��� I think it was tiip-  theria ��� and that disliked lady  was an angel of mercy. She vyent  to help in hpmes  which others  About 500? guests attended  the marriage of Miss Grace  Chauncey, daughter of Mr. and  Mrs. Cyril Chauncey of Vancouver, and grandaughter of  Mrs. Mara Lumsden, West Sechelt, to Edward JNikander i of  Vancouver, Sat, Feb. 15 .in  Kingsway Foursquare Church  in Vanceuver.  The bride was levely in a  bouffant lace gpwn with fingertip veil. She carried, as  a valentine theme, a large  heart-shaped ring pf white and  red flowers The tiny flower  girl, in a white hoop dress, carried a minature of the bride's  flowers. A little trouble with  her hoop, as she walked up the  stairs to the dias, caused a;stir  of amusement among the many  guests and the wedding cortege  She carried on in a most ladylike fashion, then smiled and  waved cheerily at the photographer, when she- regained  her balance. :; ��� ���. ���  ?^,.J  'r'-Twosisters'of the bride, Ma*- c  alyn and Dorothy, and a close  friend, were beautifully springlike in pastel, wide skirted  gowns as they headed the. profession down; the long red-carpeted aisle. .       .  The  bride's  aunt,,   Mrs. si/  Phpentx, played the organ.   *  The bride's brother, Stanley,  gave the bride in marriage.  The groom's father, Rev. Gus-  taf Nikander, and Rev. Guy  Duffield Jr. officiated at the  double ring ceremony.  Mr. Fletcher, a family friend  of many years, toasted the.  bride. The Foursquare 11 piece  band played many lively tunes  during the reception in the  lower auditorium, where al:  most 300 guests gathered-  The young couple will honeymoon in the 'States before  taking up temporary residence  in Vancouver, as Mr. Nikander  plans to enter the Services.  Good  catches  Two sturdy Sechelt fishermen,  dressed in their winter woollies  on Feb. 16 and came home with  beaming.faces and a good string  of Spring salmon-  Ben Lang had a real tussle  with a 23 pounder and one weighing 11 pounds and Bob Normin-  ton caught an eight pounder, in  two and a half hours fishing  from Frank Stone's Boat Rental  at Secret Cove.  ��� Famous last words: "If he  won't dip his lights, I won't  dip mine!"  avoided and from that day the  lady was welcomed everywhere.  We like people with a sense  of humor. It is a serious handicap when people are without it.  They laugh atJ themselves and  they help us to laugh at us. I  have known many I loved and  they have had a rich vein of good  humor. A popular magazine ask-  td its readers what they liked* in  people arid first on the list was  a sense of humor. Such people  are never mean or cruel; nor  are they ever vain or pompous.  The trouble with seriousness is  that it becomes morose and sour  and especially where young  people are concerned, it antagonizes them. There is a silver  lining to every cloud and those  , with a sense of humor are bound  to see it.  *    *    *  We like tolerant people. The  Pharisees of Christ's day may in  many cases have been respectable people but they were so  intolerant and vain. They thanked God that they were better  than.others. In Christ's parable  of the prodigal son, the elder  brother is disliked because he  was so sure of himself ��� so self-  righteous. Intolerant people are  SAME NIGHT  irritated   by   those who do not  see   their   point of view.  They  have no patience with those who  do not share their point of view.:  . When General Gordon was  asked why he was so. patient with  Arabs he replied: "Because I  have so many faults of my own."  That is what we admire; a spirit  of toleration.  * * *  , Intolerance has done a lot of  harm to religion. It has done  much to elrenate the sympathy,  of many. It is largely responsible  for lack of charity and downright bitterness. The loving heart  is all embracing in extending forgiveness and goodwill. True religion never makes jpeople intolerant; it casts bigotry out.'  In the works of the poet,  Dante, he tells of what his lova  of Beatrice did for him in his  relations with others. He writes:  "From that moment love governed my. soul ... . . I can say  that when she appeared in any  place, it seemed to me that by  the grace of her excellent salutation, that no man was my  enemy any longer, that such  warmth of charity came over me  that most certainly I would have  pardoned whoever had done ma  any wrong, and if' anyone had  questioned me concerning such  an injury, I would have said with  a contenance clothed in humbleness, I have no hate ��� only love-,  When love comes there is no  room for hatred.

The Year of the Dog  is one of 12 zodiacal years, each  having its own special fortune.  The outstanding character of persons born this year or in any  of the past Years of the Dog is  honesty, loyalty,'and a keen sense  of duty. They do have a certain  obdtinacy; however, and! often  will not heed the kind advice  of friends.  ;' ?By-lltfsV' ��'-&.'FRENCH" ?'

The Indians were always  ready to answer questions and  show visitors the , beautiful  (church (Our Lady of Lourdes),  It was built -entirely by proceeds collected from the Indians and was and still is a credit  t the Indians of the Sechelt  Reserve.  The Fathers who had' charge  of the Indians worked very  hard, especially Fater Millard  and Father Plamonden and  during the depression the child-  fen were looked after a lot  better than our white children.  Dav Galvin, who in those days  was Brother Dave and lived at  the Rectory worked with the  boys and it was a credit to see  the wonderful concerts at  Christmas put on by the boys  of the school.     ���'.'-.��  It was the Indians who told  me the meaning f of the' word  Sechelt, the meaning being  Shelter from the Sea. This is  quite right as in the 'cove in  front of the reserve it is quite  peaceful 'even when a strong  south-east of westerly gale is  blowing.

Some of the Indians, on the  reserve and other Indians from  other reserves carved the to-<  '\>tem poles which used to stand  ; next to the Union Store,  the  'largest   of  which   towered  50  feet from the ground. The Un-  ; ion  S.S.   quite   redentlfy "took  -   these ttenv,pojes to.. Bowen Island and the Indians were very  upset as Sechelt was to be the  permanent  home of these totem poles.  There are three churches in  Sechelt. The Indian Church on  the reserve? is a splendid structure and it is called Our Lady  of Lourdes. It is quite a landmark and can be seen for miles  out to sea. Church of the Holy  Family was built/by the late  Re. Father Baxter O.M.I. and  is on the main road. People of  all denominations 'contributed  to the building of the church  including the late Al Jackson.  I believe the largest donations  came form the Johnson family,  * owners and operators of Universal- Itunber Produces; Sechelt Inlet. Iii the old days  > Mass was held in .the Tea  about six people attending. The  Roms... on the waterfront with  congregation now exceeds 100.  The present pastor is Rev. Father O'Grady.  The Anglican church (St.  \ Hilda's) is a lovely church and  is at the end of the road with  a little cemetery in the foreground. It is very quiet and  peaceful and always looks so  nice. The present rector is Canon Oswald who also serves Roberts Creek and Gibsons.-  The telephone system in the  old days was operated by Government Telegraphs G.B. Wood  operator. Qnly two or three telephones were in the district. It  is quite different at present  with the B.C. Telephone with,  hundreds of telephones and a  first class service.?
