March 19 in the United Church  hall at 8 p.m. in place of meeting on March 25, the night of  the Nina Dova concert in the  High School auditorium. 2   Coast News, March 13, 1958  Editor I note with interest  that you consider the words  "brutally dictatorial" to be  overly strong in describing the  action of the Sechelt Board of  School Trustees in refusing to '  negotiate with the teachers of  this district. .I* wonder what'  words you would use to de-  scrioe anyone who attempted'  to deny you the right to print  what you wished in your newspaper. .  Is it possible that you are  unaware that the freedom of  employees to negotiate salary  ana working agreements is  just as basic a human right as  the freedom of the press? Indeed, this freedom to negotiate  is guaranteed by law to most  employees.  It seems that you consider  that saving the taxpayer money  justifies the use of any means "  and that furthermore the objective is so laudable that the  means by which it is attained  cannpt be evil. The theory that  the means is justified by the  end is certainly not one that I  should expect to find in your  editorial column, which in the  past has always championed  the cause of democracy.  You suggest that taxpayers  have the right to present their  arguments regarding teachers'  (salaries. I agree wholeheartedly, and I am sure that you  would agree with me that the  trustees of- this district are the  people who are in the best position to present these argu-  jnents. Perhaps you would also  agree that teachers have the  right to present their arguments. If you do agree with  both these points, you are  being totally inconsistent in opposing negotiation, for surely  the best place to exchange  opinions is around the bargaining table.  To paraphrase a famous .quotation, I am distressed at what  you say but shall always support your right to say it. I  trust that after more mature  consideration, you will support my fight and the right  of all employees to a voice in  determining  wage  and salary  agreements.       A.H. Child..  Editor's note:  The editorial  questioned in this Jetter discussed the use of words and did  not deny the teachers' association any rights- While on, the  subject of rights it might he  explained thatjhe school board: -  has the same right to defend ".  taxpayers'   money   as   school^  teachers have to try and get it.  The means of defence and attack vary according to circumstances.  ter and chop the wood, and be  dictated to by school trustees  that could neither- read or  spell. Now the Teachers' Federation is asking for an increase in the teachers' salary  when you consider that they  go to school before 8 a.m. and  seldom get home before 6 p.m.  and have ' about two hours  work every night. Then again  there is supervision during the  lunch hour, no coffee breaks  here. I still think with the high  cost of living and what they  have to pay for shelter they are  not out of line with other professions. So many of them have  family obligations also. My  remarks about the bottle of  whiskey still stand, $3.50 per  year would take care of the in-  ���crease. If we can't give our  children, yours, not mine, for  I haven't any, what can we  give them? So get busy you  parents and get these schools  in district 46 off the black list.  A Ratepayer.  Editor: At this point I feel  justified in adding my personal  opinion to the current series  of paid advertisements, pseudonym letters, and an editorial  which have been published in  the Coast News regarding salaries of the teachers in Sechelt  S.D. Number 46.  No doubt the paid advertisements brought oh the letters. I  believe that any letter worth  iwritihg is worthy of bearing  the writer's identity. Otherwise  why write it? Courage of conviction cannot be <��nvincin_  if the writer refuses to reveal  identity.  I congratulate the editor for  taking the responsibility \of  "Brutally Dictatorial." I know  that it is not 'a Guest Editorial  and therefore the Board of  School Trustees and. members  of the Teachers' Federation  are absolved from sniping editorially. I also know that the  editorial must have been written by a member of the editorial staff arid published with the  approval of the Editor. I note  top that a portion of-the editorial is a criticism of a paid  advertisement which was published by the Coast News.  To make my -point of; view  perfectly clear, I  am, firstly,  in favor of sincere and honest,  negotiations as a means of settling all differences,: and secondly, I ddmnt consider letters ���  which  are written by people  hiding   behind   a   pseudonym  screen   worthy  of   the  paper  on which they are writteni.

The breakwater  To suggest loud cheers were heard when plans for the ���  breakwater was announced would be exaggeration. Average first  comment was/'That wasn't what we wanted."  Plans submitted revealed use of the government wharf  as the main breakwater with extensions added. This work is to  cost, so the village commission has been informed, the sum of  $110,000.  Three hundred feet of-new construction plus the driving of  a considerable number of piles around the wharf is the major  work involved. The new construction means placing of bent piling from the southeast corner of the wharf and some of thessame  from the edge of the wharf nearest the ramp and running 100  feet from wharf towards the shore.  The theory has been propounded by some that we should  not criticize this project for fear the district will get nothing. It  should not be regarded in this light because that stamps it as  election bait well chloroformed.  The main argument put forth by the dissatisfied is that it  protects too small an area. The engineers of the federal department argue their only mission is to protect moorings for com  mercial vessels and not pleasure craft. The.argument put forth  by some Gibsonites is purely mercenary and it is that commercial and pleasure craft spend money in this' area therefore why  make fish of one type and flesh of the other? To the average person along this coastline all craft tend towards being viewed as  commercial. They argue all 'bring money into the area and the  more we can bring in with safe mooring, the more money will  be spent here.  The general consensus is that we have the Coriservative type  of breakwater and will have to go along with it. The engineers on  the project could be right ih their views and they could be wrong.  In the mearitme we will await election day, view the result and  wonder when actual work will commence.  Progress in Gibsons  The congregation of the United Church in Gibsons should  be congratulated in it's foresight in looking ahead hi their desire  for a new building.  The spot-on which the church now stands is an awkward  one to say the least. There is no parking, space, an essential these  days, for any edifice which people use. The hands of the church  board are tied as regards the present property because there is  a burial ground involved.  Property sought by the church congregation is in ari area  where expansion could cpntmue. It is on Glass-ford road, where  the ground is reasonahiy^flat, fairly well cleared and presents  a not too knotty building problem.  It will take a considerable amount of tinae before actual  work starts on any new building because the property must be  paid for and then plans must be1 made for the accumulation of a  fund which would result in the building of the required church  and manse;  It is a move in the right direction and should do a great  deal towards making the United Church a stronger force in the  community.  Editor: Your editorial of  March 6 takes issue with the  description of the board as  "dictatorial." The school board  has persistently refused to  meet the teachers' salary committee, after two meetings at  which agreement on a salary  schedule was not reached-  The school board then, after  repeating an offer made at the  first meeting, which failed to  close the gap between this and  other comparable districts,  "fixed." salaries. I suggest this  is dictatorial.  You refer to the mention of  "rights" iri the same editorial.  The "right!' referred to in the  advertisement was the right to  collective bargaining, which is  a generally recognized one, not  only of teachers, but of other  employed persons, including  the taxpayers you mention, if  employed in any organized activity, either in industry or in  public service.  If teachers are to be denied  this right, may others not also  expect to lose it, eventually?  One of your correspondents  suggests that policies followed  by ��� the salary committee are. -,  not representative. It may be  of. interest to your readers to  know that all actions of the  -salary committee of Sechelt  District Teachers' Association  Slave been given prior authorization by virtually unanimous  vote of association members  as recorded by closed ballots  at meetings of the association.

The  occasion was the dedication of  the Memorial Lych-gate at St.  Bartholomew's Church. The small  church framed by forest and  snow-capped mountains; the  Bishop in his robe of office, the  full choir in their snowy white  gowns and the Demolay .Boys  clad in itheir colorful robes, all  assembled at the lych-gate for  the dedication service, made an  inspiring picture.  The lych-gate is a memorial to  the late Mr. Fred Dolley of Gibsons. When Mrs. Dolley made it  known that she would like to  erect a suitable memorial to her  husband, it was Mr. John Clou,  of. Granthams Landing, who suggested a lych-gate, and it was  he who drew- up the plans, mak-  ���     ��� i      .-���'.���-  Guaranteed  Watch &  Jewelry Repairs  Chris* J.ewe!ers  Mail Orders Given Prompt  Attention  ing a re_ aea of. the lych-gate at  the church in Ditcheart, Somerset England.

Every day hundreds of typewriters are sold, but one day a  man bought one under unusual  circumstances. His name was  Basil King, and he was a native  of Prince Edward Island. He became rector of an Episcopal  church in Massuchusetts, and for  a short time he had a career of  great usefulness and the outlook  was promising:. Then suddenly  his health failed and his eyesight  became so poor that he could  read only with great difficulty.  He consulted an eye specialist,  who broke the painlul news to  him-that his eyesight .-would become steadily worse and would  eventually become totally blind.  It is, not easy to understand  whaib such a verdict means to a  young man looking forward to.  a long career of usefulness. Years  later Basil King made this statement: "On the day that I knew,  I could lose my sigh. I bought  a typewriter."  There in a sentence we have  the spirit of a man who never  indulged in self-pity or gave way  to bitterness. Slowly he learned  to operate the typewriter by the  touch system, and much of what  he has intended to say from the  pulpit he typed on his machine,  often propped up in bed, for- he  had other troubles besides failing eyesight.

Among   these    the   best-known  were: "The Inner Shrine ��� The  Street Called Straight���The Side  of ''the Angels ��� and The Happy  . Isles."  These   books  all   carried  a message of hope and courage;  they were sincere and protrayed,  the spirit of one who had fought  and won a spiritual battle. King  found satisfaction in the knowledge that "ho physical  calamity  such as blindness or ill health jl  any kind need  crush the spirit  and bring despair to the soul.  *    *    *  ; King won this battle himself  but that was not enough. He  knew that all over the world  there were people ��� often in  the prime of life ��� who like himself had listened to a verdict that  sounded terrible. So he wrote a  book called "The Cpnquest of  Fear," which -perhaps was his  most important contribution to  literature and to life. The book .  was, written but of' his own ex-,  perience and did a tremendous  amount of good. Over thirty  thousand copies were sold in one  year, and the stimulating volume  has: been read by tens of thousands.  Besides   hundreds   of articles  and stories for newspapers, Basil  SAR0E MIGHT  Coast News, March 13, 1958   3  King wrote thirty books, most  of which were definitely aimed  to encourage disabled and handicapped people. But nothing couid  be more characteristic of this  brave, friendly man than these  words; "On the day that I knew  I would lose my sight I bought  a typewriter."

Arriving at Gibsons on the  11.40 bus, the guests were met  by Mrs. Evelyn Begg, district  deputy president and Mrs. Ber-  nice Chamberlin, noble grand,  and taken to the home of Mrs.  Vida Burt for a delicious luncheon and afternoon tea. This informal gathering gave the officers of the lodge and the advisory officers for the girls an  opportunity to become acquainted with the president,  and many questions which had  arisen: were settled.  In the late afternoon Mrs.  Woods paid her visit to the  Theta Rho Girls who excelled-  themselves in the beauty and  dignity of their work. The president was deeply impressed  and praised the girls and encouraged them to bigger and  better things. Mrs.. Dorothy  Parnwell and Mrs. Violet Winegarden were complimented on  the fine work they are doing  on behalf of these girls.  During the ceremony Mrs.  Woods, Mrs. McGoogan and  Mrs. Begg were presented with  corsages with;the compliments,  of the club, and the president^  Miss Kathy Holland, and her  officers  made  a glowing  and  will  vibrant , picture    which  long be remembered.  The guests, including the  Theta Rho Girls were then entertained to a banquet in the  ���Parish Hall; The long tables  were beautifully decorated  -with trailing arbutus in keeping with the name of the lodge  The.~m.eal, a hot turkey dinner,  planned and organized by Mrs.  Anna Spencer and her committee was a well-planned masterpiece.  Returning then to the school  hall, the guests were entertained to a skit put on by the girls.  The girls really entered into  the spirit of the thing.  The evening session of Arbutus Rebekah Lodge No. 76,  IOOF, proved equally pleasant  as well as informative. The  president was escorted by her  deputy, Mrs. Begg, to the centre of the floor, given the  grand honors and presented  with a corsage from the lodge,  as were also Mrs. McGoogan  and: Mrs. Begg. In her concluding address, Mrs. Woods proved to be in a very uncritical  mood. Her words were very  encouraging and many questions were answered.  Mrs; McGoogan also expressed' great, pleasure with all  the work- presented ,and both  ladies were very appreciative  of their reception and declared a  most  enjoyable  day in  GibspnS-- '��� v .::::-_:  Habeas Corpus literally means,  "you may have the body."  Sunshine Coast Scout and  Wolf Cub leaders heard many  pointers on how to run their  affairs when they listened .to  Executive Director Ken Jordan  at a dinner meeting in the Dogwood Cafe  He outlined the scout and  cub movement from its inception as an idea of the late Lord  Baden Powell to where it Is  soon going to be one quarter  million strong in Canada.  Scouting is one of the greatest character builders we have,  he said. The provincial corh-  'mand is always anxious to ex-,  pand the movement and will  do everything in its power to  do so. It is an investment in  our own future and one of  the finest in the world-  He spoke highly of the  amount of publicity given by  the Coast .News to the Sunshine Coast Scouts and Cubs  when he stressed the importance of good public relations.  Group committees are very,  important to the welfare of  scouting. They have a, grave  ��� responsibility, he pointed out.  He urged them to meet regularly and to take an active  participation in working out  plans for their respective units.  One of the most important  committees is the one charged  with Awarding badges. A boy  who has passed his test on a  particular subject then fails  to get recognition is a disgruntled scout, he warned. We can't  afford to haye that.  Canvassing for funds via annual drives should not be classed as ^begging' he said. It  should be felt and urged by all  concerned that giving money  for the scout movement is an  opportunity for, all of us to fts-  sist in the continuance of.tips  great Work. We are not asking for money for. some*; outlandish scheme, he said,'%t  only to help our own children  along a finer way of Jife.   |  He pointed out the great  good that comes from interla-  tional scouting. There is no international or color barrier in  the scouting world, he said. It  is one of the greatest steps toward unity that we^.have.    ^  Council^memberSri&in attendance were Cliff Oviatt, Bill  (Sutherland, Jack McLeod, lies  HempsaU, John Wood, Bob  Gill, Rev?

Reviewing the auitomobile  industry's 1957 record he saut  that about 380,000 passenger cars  and 76,000 trucks were sold.  �� "This is the third consecutive  year that car buyers have spent  more than one billion dollars for  new cars and trucks, and 1957  was the- second highest on record," added Mr. Todgham.  Mr. -Todgham who is President  of Chrysler Corporation of Canada, Limited said that production,  employment and payrolls were at.  high levels. "In 1957 payrolls of  $166,501,813 almost reached the  1956 record and the monthly .  average of employment in 1957  was 38,515.-  The C.A.C.C. president stated  that the recent reduction in the  excise tax on passenger cars  from 10% ifco IV2 % was a welcome -step jn the right direction  but  the industry looks forward'  to the day when this discriminatory tax will be abolished.

A resolution is different from  a bill in that it rarely has -legal authority. "  ? The legislature, by resolu  tion, can conduct its own bus-  ness. That is to say* we can  instruct the sergeant-at-arms  to have the lobbies cleared by  resolution, or we can instruct  the Queen's Printer to supply  copies of bills to members.  However, the important use 'of  a resolution is to express an  ���opinion of the legislature.  Arthur Turner (CCF. Vancouver East) moved the following resolution last Wednesday:  "Be it resolved that this house  is of the opinion that the government should take under advisement the calling of a provincial-municipal conference to  (consider all phases of provincial-municipal regulations and  jurisdiction." _ ?  If this resolution had carried  the government would not  have been compelled to hold  such a conference, but it would  have been under strong moral  obligation to dp so.  It is nearly always an opposition member who moves  such resolutions because'they  are a medium of expressing  dissatisfaction in a particular  issue.  John Squire (CCF. Alberni)  has frequently placed on the  order paper a resolution asking for a minimum level of  cumpulsory automobile insurance. Such a scheme could be  administered . through the  motor-vehicle branch in a manner similar to the B.C. Hospital  Insurance Scheme. This would  mean that the motorist would  pay a fee at the time he received his car license, which would  mean that all licensed automobiles are covered by some kind  of basic insurance coverage.  Consequently nobody W*10 /is>  involved in an automobile accident ��� either driver, passen-.  ger or pedestrian ��� would be  without some kind of insurance  coverage.  I think this is an excellent  idea. The same principle is applied in Workmen's-Compensa  tion. Every workman who is  injured in an insurable occupation is covered by workmen's  compensation. He receives benefits if he is involved in an,industrial accident, regardless of  who is to blame. If this resolution on automobile insurance is  carried, the government would  be under strong moral obligation to enact universal automobile insurance similar to  that in effect in Saskatchewan.  I . think that the essential  characteristics of such a scheme  are its low administrative cost  and its universality.  TRAINING  FORESTERS  The management of Canada's  forest domain is now largely entrusted to professional foresters,  a branch of engineering requiring four to five years training.  The faculty of forestry, at the  University of Toronto was established 50 years ago.

Gone   are   the  chicken house and the storeroom,  the lat/ter built of logs and partially buried against a bank for  extra protection. The pigpen and  fences have  disappeared  in the  new forest growth and only ;the  woodshed, strong and firm, buil*:  of hand hewn   shakes,  remains,  straight and sturdy as when built.  The man responsible for this  home in the wilderness was.Gus  Rossland, and he built it for bis  bride   in   1915   or   1916. While  clearing the  land   and  building  the house,  he lived in the old  logging  shack on the  R.  Eadesi  property, the same one in which,  a year or so before,  Mr. Crc-v  and   his   family sheltered while  building on their land. The distance from shack to house would,  today constitute something of a  half day's hike, or perhaps one  should say "cliMb", for it is up  hill all the way.  This climb at first branched  off the Sechelt Highway, then,  known as the Upper Road, at a  point near the present Carlson  home, so that. Gus had to go west  first and then north, on a trail  which crossed the Crow road at  the top when it was put in shortly afterwards. He then proceeded in an.easterly direction for  some 200 yards, then north again  when the trail grew steeper.  Half way up was a creek with  deep steep sides' and over ib a  Strong plank bridge Which had-  been built by the Husdon broth-,  ers who in 1911 pre-empted land  adjoining the Rossland property,:  but by this time had left it for,:  property on* the Highway in the  Elphinstone district.  Salal half way to the shoulders  bordered the trail as.it climbed!  upward, finally ducking beneath?  a cedar log which almost barred  the way and then suddenly to the  left stood the htiuse.  rPictiire if you can, this mountain of a man; carrying on his  back the lumber, nails", tools and  supplies for his work. Could the  number of trips be counted that  it took tp transport, via one  man's back, the furnishings, the  food, Ttfte^cTuekens and piglets  and all the necessities- of. a, home?

Den  rT ������'T*r  porch was roofed over and held  a rustic bench. It was a snug and  comfortable little home and none  was more strongly built  The map showed a road allowance adjoining his property and  it is safe to assume that Gus fully-  expected it to be cut through.  No doubt his intention was to  log off the property.  In the meantime he continued  to   haul   everything   up   on  his  broad   back.   Mr.  Crow told of  loading him up with a hundred-  pound   sack  of  pig feed  under  each    arm    and one across his ���  shoulders.   These he carried all  the   way   home   from   Roberts  Creek without stopping to rest-  Had he  laid his burden   down,  alone he could not have loaded  up again.  There were times when Gus  went away to work leaving his  little bride alone. There was a  night in the dead of winter  when little Johnnie was born and  the late Dr. Fred Inglis arrived,  on snow shoes, in time to usher  him into tlie world. Mrs. Craft  an elderly English woman, had  also made the arduous trip up  the long trail to act as nurse.  When Johnnie was but a few  months old the family moved' to  North Vancouver where Gus obtained a job in the shipyards.  Johnnie's sister, Mary, was still  a very little girl when, their  mother passed away, but the  bride's - house, though badly  beaten, still stands.
