SOPER  Dairy to     pi  The suggestion there should  be more policing in the yillage  to keep down vandalism was  suggested by commissioners at  Tuesday night's village council  meeting, who told of various  petty acts of vandalism, including destruction? of the Centennial Park sign.  Robert Burns, village clerk,  said the cost of these acts of  vandalism to the village, the  school board and private citizens was'high?  It 'was also reported the num  ber of windows being smashed  by large' rocks was excessive.  Council decided *to send a  strong letter to the proper authorities protesting this state  of affairs. At previous meetings of council various acts of  recent vandalism have been  ~i discussed.  Mr. Burns suggested the private individual was negligent  in not reporting acts of vandalism actually seen and that  it was time p ussy.foo ting  around with this problem ceas  ed. One commissioner mentioned the fact he has watched  young school children while  waiting or the . school bus in  Gibsons standing smoking cigarettes, It was also pointed out  that children were able to get  cigarettes with ease from  stores, which was against the  law.   '  The? attorney-general's department will get a letter from  the commission asking for better police protection and a  copy /will be sent the local  RCMP,  one rates increase  service  this area  A spanking new cream colored refirgerated van has been  added to Sechelt Peninsula  highways.  George Fawcett, manager of  Palm Dairies Limited, stated  that the growth of the1 area iri  recent years has out-paced pres  ent facilities for dairy product  distribution.  6 To remedy the situation,  Palm Dairies Limited have inv  ported a specially designed  -two-temperature refrigerated  truck which will bring fresh  dairy products to Gibsdns,  /���' ISechelt, Halfmoon Bay, ���<���Pen-  Lder Harbour.,. Port?Mellon, Irvine's? Landing -, and Wilson  Creek on a year round basis.  With a capacity of 400 gallons ?of ice cream and 2,000  quarts of milk, the truck "will  service stores with all types of  dairy; products, as well as a  complete line of fountain ������ supplies.'"'* .

Soper, who has been  in the dairy industry for the  past 15 years.  For the present, the refrigerated van will;make two trips  a week, leaving Vancouver on  Mondays and Thursdays all  the year round> Mr. Fawcett  also stated that, "success of  serv&e depends on support of  the community and the service  will be increased as the demand requires."  During a discussion on proposed phone Trate increases,  members of the village council  Tuesday expressed opinions on  telephone service supplied Gibsons, which were riot congratulatory. General complaints centered on the --antiquated" ser-  ice, as one commissioner termed it. The commissioners also  . protested the proposed increase  in'phpne -rates. The discussion  started when a, letter ihtroduc-  A'^i-:' i''"J: *-*v *W-*��  :/y;yy^::^  pany brief to the Board of  Transport Commissioners was  read. The brief revealed commercial phones would increase  in cost by 29 percent and private telephones by about 15  percent.

There was further discussion  on ferry servcie during long  weekends and Reg Godfrey,  Black Ball representative explained little could be done un-i  til such time as speedier ferries were put on the run to  Larigdale.  Some objected to allowing  trucks aboard ferries first at  Horseshoe Bay while passenger traffic had to wait, sometimes hours before they could  board the vessel.

Great credit is due Robert  Ritchie of the management  committee for his splendid  work in preparing this brief.  The committee has high  hopes that the brief will meet  with success and that will  mean that the airport will be  developed in the near future.  Navy craft  (or Sechelt  The May Day Committee,  headed by Mrs. Lee Redman,  received confirmation that the  H.M.C.S. Stettler, out of Esquimau, will dock at Sechelt  wharf on May Day.  The committee believe this  to be a frigate, with a possible  crew of about 200. If there is  a ball team among the ship's  members, it is hoped that a  game might add to the enjoyment of the day's celebrations.  Extra arrangements for the  entertainment of the crew will  be on the agenda of the committee for the next meeting  scheduled for April 21.  At the meeting April 8, it  was reported that the Sechelt  Kinsmen have agreed \o take  charge of the parade as they  did so well, in comedy, last  " year. Don Humm is the Kinsmen . representative. " George  Flay, representing the Rod and  Gun Club was asked to plan  a new sports program for May  Day.  Tlie committee discussed the  progriam for the day, as outlined by Mrs. Redman and  Mrs. Dawe, and made minor  changes for the benefit of the  Queen and her party.

The vital subject of garbage  disposal came up for healthy  debate. A proposal from the  Gibsons collector calls for a  pick-up twice monthly, with  50 subscribers at one dollar  per mon,h being necessary for  the inauguration of the service  Initial route would be along  Lower Road? Bayview Road,  Metcalfe Road, Roberts Creek,  Beach Ave#, Elphinstone Road,  Sechelt Highway and Hall road  Some form of garbage disposal is urgently needed "for  the area and residents are urged to attend the next meeting  of the association May 13 at  8 p m. in the Community Hall.

Some foresight needed  The idea this area does not require protection for pleasure  craft is something people in charge of such government thinking  should revise.  What is wrong with leaving the present float area behind  the government dock for. fishermen and any other commercial  craft and building a similar breakwater of sufficient length out  from the shoreline on the north side of the government dock  ramp.  ��� This would not create added expense because the timber  to be used to cover the dock face and part of the area from the  dock towards the shoreline could be put to better use. It could  make a breakwater as suggested above/and it could be maintained for pleasure craft only.  There is a definite need for such dockage in this area because pleasure craft traffic is increasing and will increase at a  greater rate in the not too distant future. .     .  There are those people who still regard the Sunshine  Coast area as part of the hinterland about which nothing much  should be done for the time beingy Perhaps many of them, even  in government circles, do not know there are 13 ferries a day  between Horseshoe Bay and Langdale. Maybe they do not know  that on long weekends and holiday periods the lineup of cars  seeking passage to the.- Sunshine Coast is greater than the available facilities can carry.       ������.������������  Naturally they will ask what have cars got to do with marine affairs. It means that more cars wanting to cross over also  means'-more water craft also visit Gibsons area. We have one ox  the finest harbors for miles ��� but we still heed greatly improved facilities for pleasure craft which are in season, of growing importance.  Perhaps local organizations might take up the cue and  get down to specific motions or resolutions to proper authorities,  pointing out the time has icome when the tourist trade is as im-  iportant to Gibsons as any other marine trade. Perhaps they will  (point out the area is no longer backwoods but rapidly becoming  another suburb of Vancouver. As the years pass all too quickly,  those same government officials will be wondering why those  "blamed fools of past years" had not sufficient foresight to look  after the problem while it was still manageable.  Anyhow it is a thought and it is one which even now the  average individual will say is good common sense.  AN- AGREEABLE   POINT' r  Mensius, a Chinese sage, second among Chinese philosophers to Confucius, apparently did not visualize the needs of  present day government. /      '  * He wrote: "Markets were established to enable men to exchange what they possessed for what they did not possess. He  was a worthless man who first levied taxes on this interchange."  �� Mensius could be right but sales taxes are now a part of  provincial government economy. He has, nevertheless, a rather  agreeable point.  Price support policy outline  Hon. Douglas S. Harkness,  minister of agriculture, has announced the first set of prices  established under* the Agricultural Stabilization act. These include mandatory floor prices for  six of the nine key commodities  named in the act) and guaranteed yearly prices for three commodities, butter, hogs and wool.  Prices have been set by the gov-  erment following recommendations made by the advisory committee and the agricultural stabilization board. ._  Guaranteed yearly p,rices!  which may be called the working  support prices, include a federal  government) agreement to purchase Canada'First Grade creamery butter at a price of 64 cents  per pouricl effective May 1, 1958  basis delivery Montreal with appropriate price and market differentials for other markets and  butterfat in other forms which  the. board may specify. This is  approximately 107 per cent of  the base price, i.e. the average  price for the last 10 years. The  previous support price on butter  was 58 cents.   .  The working price support for  hogs to be in effect for the next  year effective April 1, 1958, is  $25 per 180 lb. for warm dressed  weight from grade A carcasses  basis Toronto with appropriate  differentials for other public  stockyards throughout Canada as  may be established by the board.  This is ^proximately 84 per  ceirt of the base price. The previous support price for hogs was  ..23?cenls. ���������- -v ;' _  . -pie price of wool will be"supported by deficiency paynr.t��it at  fefre l��vel of 60 cents per "pound  for wool grading western range  choice 58/60's, half blood staple  F.O.B. Toronto, and appropriate,  rates for all other grades except  rejects. This will be effective  from April 1, 1958, to March 31,  1959, and is approximately 110  per cent of the base price of 54*4  cenjfcs. per pound for sheep's  wool, j In the past no support  price was in effect for wool.  Mandatory floor prices established for six of the nine key  commodities named in the act  are at 80 per cent of -the base  price, which is the average price  during the last ten years. The  base prices and the mandatory  80 per cent floor prices for these  six commodities are shown m  the following table. They will  be effective from April 1, 1958,  to March 31, 1959.

Mr. Harkness said tha_ due to  the difficulty of securing sufficient statistical data the manda-  toiy 80 per cent floor prices on  wheat, oats and barley not coming under the Canadian Wheat  board will not be available until  following the next meeting of  advisory committee to be held  in the near future.  Mr. Harkness said that "the  advisory committee will be meeting shortly to consider applications for guaranteed yearly prices  on other commodities.'*  Mandatory  80%  $17.50 (Tor.)  23.75 (Tor.)  .48 (Mont.)  .25 (Ont.)  ���42(Mont.)  19.55 (Tor,)  Education  briefs wanted  British Columbia's Royal  Commission on Education will  visit 32 centres throughout the  province between May 1958  and June 1959 to conduct hearings, commission chairman  Dena S.N.F.

'?-���   ,|?>  Who was the first white man to  climb the Rockies-;  David ��� Douglas, a Scottish botanist, spent several .years in the  Pacific Northwest between 1823  and 1833, exploring, discovering  new varieties of trees and plants  and collecting seeds and specimens.

Douglas is the first white man  known to have climbed a mountain in the Ca.iadian Rookie.**,  as well as the Cascades, Blus  Mountains of Oregon, and the  two greaib Hawaiian peaks. It  was while on a mountain-climbing expedition in Hawaii that-  he lost his life. He fell into a  bul".ork pit and was. gored to  .death by a trapped b .'Heck.

It wsa  similar to tlie "baflteau" but  larger, with a rounded bow, and  was steered by means of a rudder The boa/bmen stood on either  side of the craft and each in  turn pressed a stout pole against  the . river bed, walking from  stem to stern along the gangways as the boat moved forward.  At night the crew camped on  the river bank. Passengers, moreover, had to provide their own  food and blankets for their trips.  What is the specific meaning of     as  "ranges".  the term "Range"?  The word "range" occurs in  the Dominion lands^survey system used in the Prairie Provinces. These provinces are surveyed in blocks of six miles1  square, north from the U.S. Border (49th parallel) and west  (east in one case) from the  Meridians.

They even offered some ^specific  suggestions on how to get started.  Joe's next step was to apply for a low-cost BNS  loan, to pay for the necessary alterations to his  store.

HEART  No. th  ree  . The most common cause of  death and disability today W  known as "heart attack." Yet it  is not a disease; insitead, it is an  event ��� the sudden and dramatic blocking of an artery which  helps to nourish the heart muscle. IThe stage has been set for  this event by atherosclerosis,-  more commonly known as "hard-  ( ening of the arteries", which is  the most serious form of arteriosclerosis.  1 The layman who seeks a simple  explanation of this condition can  best begin by visualizing a water  pipe hi the basement of his own  home. Over the years, lime accumulates inside the pipe, narrowing and roughening its bore  until the flow of water is reduced  to a mere trickle. Then one day  a deposit of lime is detached and  wedged within the narrow passageway, blocking the channel.  Something quite similar happens in heart attack. Here, the  arteries of the heart become narrowed and roughened by the  long-term build-up in the inner  lining of a fatty substance called  cholesterol. A clot may form at  the site of the roughened passageway -closing it off. Or the  clot may form elsewhere, break  loose and'^  either   event,    major or minor  - damage to a portion of the heart  muscle is the likely result.  If the area involved is large  or strategically located, death,  may shortly or promptly ensue.  Much more often, however, the  victim survives the attack, recovering to lead a reasonably  normal life. Iri most cases, he  returns to work without changing jobs. -    ��� .  What   causes  the   arteries   to  become     hardened,     roughened  and   narrowed?   What   mechan-  ��� isms   are   responsible    for   the  build-up   of   cholesterol?   These  are among the greatest enigmas  facing medical science today.  3Once answers to these questions  have been found, tne next logical step will be to seek methods  of preventing or controlling tne  atherosclerotic process', or even  finding methods by which already-affected arteries may be  restored to normalcy.  The goals may be closer to attainment than many people suspect. Literally scores of promising and exciting clues have been  found involving such areas, as  diet, hormones, exercise, heredity- and body chemistry. They  are being intensively pursued in  laboratories, clinics and hospitals  throughout the  nation.  Meanwhile, concurrent studies  go forward looking toward better  methods of diagnosis, care - and  treatment���areas where dramatic  progress already has been achieved, with the result that today's  heart - attack victim has a far  greater chance of survival and  ultimate recovery than did Jthe  man who suffered a heart attack  a generation ago.  In an effort to forestall repeat  heart attacks, wide study is being given anti-coagulant drugs  which interfere-with clotting, of  blood and minimize the tendency  of blood clots to develop.  Though the intensive research  being conducted in coronary  artery disease carries with it no  guarantees of success, the outlook is bright with hope. There  is good reason 'to believe that the  answers can be- hastened by intensified public support of heart  research. Research is the primary  objective of your B.C. Heart  Foundation. You support research  when you give generously to the  1958 Heart Fund.  Donations may be made at  your nearest branch bank.

He was John iviui-  lins.  ixe bought and moved in to  the shack just vacated by the  Truesdale family- Sometimes he  worked. out, sometimes he .puttered about his own property.  He was a blasphemous little  character and tough as nails, it  was said of him that he once"  worked atop ElpMnstjne Mountain geitting out shingle bolts,  and slept there in a rude shelter  on boughs and .bark, without  blankets, in the coldest weather.  There came a day wehn neighbors, the 'Whitworbhs, purchased  a cow and arranged with Jonn  for him to milk'the. animal. At  the same time John was doing  some logging in the near vicinity,  and, getting along in years,  whefbher he'would admit it or  not, was tiring under the strain  of the heavy work.  It was not unvisual for him to  come in at night and fall asleep  before he cooked his dinner.  Thus it was thsih no concern was  felt for him when he failed to  show up to do the milking one  evening in June. There was no  sign of John the following morn-  ins either, and at last when eve  ning came again and he stiu nad  iiu��� uiVA'dd, Mrs. Whiuworth, en-  ���ou"ug. tne company .of Mrs.  Crow, across the road, walked  over to the old chap's house to  investigate.    ,  There all was quiet and John  nownei'e around. His water buckets, chough, were not in their  usual place on the porch and the  two women, with tear in their  hearts, proceeded to the creek,  whiicli was a good distance from  . the house.  The banks of the creek were  sJtaep and the water flowed far  below, protected, by huge, dense  trees through which the sun  scarcely penetrated, and at that  hour of the evening it was too  dark fcr the women to see down  the trail. Two capsized water  buckets, glimmering faintly half  way down told their tragic story,  and the dog which had accompanied them would not approach,  but stood and barked excitedly.  The women returned then to  get lights and help. The men  in the neighborhood brought  John up from the creek side  where he had laid between two  logs. Consciousness came to him  at intervals, butt he was paralyzed and could not spea?k.  , There was no way of moving  him to Vancouver until the next  day at. noon when the regular  boat called. He died before  reaching the hospital.  Now,  it- was well known that  John would "have no truck with  banks." It was also well known  he had considerable money. And  it was an accepted theory that  it was hidden on the property.  Only the day before his disappearance he had purchased groceries at the store, paying for  them with a $100 bill and receiving change in bills' and  silver.  Long before John reached his  last resting place, his shack had  been thoroughly searched, paper  torn from the walls, boards ripped off, tins and boxes emptied,  and even the lining of the dry  well loosened. At intervals ever  since, the "buried treasure" has  been a source of activity for interested hunters.  Whether any of the searchers .  found  John's   cache   will   never  be known. If it is still there, the  amount   and   the place,   is  still  John's secret.

Here is a.  story told me in Toronto but I  have thought about it many  times.  A friend of mine who is a  clergyman in a large Canadian  city told me that one evening,  several years ago, his phone runs,  quite late. A man asked him if  he could be at church - a ��e*.v  minuites before 11 the following  morning. The appointment was  made, and the next morning an  old man, who was,79. years old,  and his t wife, who was 77 greeted the clergyman. "Will you  please come into the church?"-'  said the man. All three entered  the church and walked down the  aisle.    '  Then the old man drew out  his watch. "Fifty years ago to a  minu'be," he said, "this dear lady  and I stood here and were united in holy matrimony. We have  been so very happy that it seems  like a few months. We how live  in California, and we have made  this journey just to celebrate  our golden anniversary. We are  grateful to God. Would you  please lead us in prayer?"  *1�� *s* .J*  *****       ��*��       f  After that, he wanted to give,  the clergyman $50. My : friend  refused it, saying that he had  done nothing for the man and  could not accept money from e  stranger. "Well, then, are there  any poor people in this district?"  the man asked. On being assured  there were, he insisted that the  money be used to help them. He  went on, "Fifty dollars is only  one dollar a year, and that isn't  much to return to God for such  happiness as ours." The next,  day they left for California, their  purpose fulfilled. "'  I was glad to get that.' story,  which, I know, is true in, every  detail.- With all the divorces ins  modern life, such loyalty, devotion, and gratitode is like a  breath of clean, pure air. I Jo  wish, however, that the old  couple had given my friend their  recipe. It might, help. There have  been, and sftill are, millions of  happy marriages. I get tired of  hearing speeches and reading  articles on "Is marriage a failure?" It all depends upon the  person who marries.  ���������.*** '-*���  Marriage is a failure when  moral standards have been lowered, when men and women  have lost reverence for God and  respect for themselves. When  that happens, no amount of material comfort can make amends.  After the death of Elisabeth  Barrett Browning, her bereaved  husband, Robert Browning; kissed the steps of .Marylebonei  Chuirch, up which she had pas-'  sed on her wedding' day. ,That  was a great ��� compliment, and so  was, Chauncey Depew's reply,  when someone asked him if he  .were nob himself who else in the  world would he like to be:; "My  wife's second husband." '  These* two cases remind me of  one of the most tender and romantic love stories in all literature, :that ^of Jacob and Rachel.  Listen  (to   the   music   of   these*  words: "Jacob loved Rachel . . .  And Jacob served seven years  for Rachel; and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the  love he had for her."    .  -*���_* -f* al*  "i**        t-        *v  It was my privilege, not long  ago, to speak at a veterans' banquet. The place next ito me was  vacant for quite a while, then  the latecomer arrived, 'fell to.  and soon caught up tq the rest  of 'U*s. "You enjoy your food,"  I said to this marathon feaster.  ���1 do," he replied, "and listen.  A few weeks ago my father and  mother -celebrated the 60th anniversary of their wedding.  There were a lot of speeches,  and the guests insisted on my  mother saying something. xNow,  unlike most women, my mother  is no talker, but at last she got  up and said: "Friends, all' I have  to say is this: I have been married' to John for 60 years,. and  he has never found, fault with  my cooking."  That was a fine compliinent,  even though the old lady's memory may have failed just a little.  But it was a nice thing to say  anyway, and no doubt his appreciation had helped her cooking. The thing that amazes me  is that women keep on baking,  washing, darning, cleaning, and  doing scores, of other things'  without much applause. It isn't*  that husbands don't appreciate,  but they too often take things  for granted. ��� .���   .        ,      ;  I   should   like  to  qupte  some  lines in which Robert Growning  expressed his appreciation of all  his wife meant to him:  Love*1  if you  knew the  light  That your soul casts in my sight;  How -I look to you  For (the pure and  true, -  And the beautiful and the right.

LIMITED  (formerly Vancouver Breweries Mi.)  SLACK LABEL LAGSR BEER -RED CAP ALE  UBC BOHEMIAN LACES BEER ��� OLD COUNTRY ALE ��� 4X CREAM STOUT  Editor: In this materialistic  age it could well be a matter  of wonder that any men, youns  or middle-aged, are still coming forward seeking ordination  in the church. Clergy are notoriously ill-paid, but we have  yet to hear any suggestions of  blacklisting such parishes as  fail to conform to any self-  iconsidered standard ���in fact  quite the reverse, for clergy  :seem to sense a danger in even  being moderately well paid:  not only because sacrifice is  an essential part of the ministry, but because so many of  ithose to whom they minister  are poorer, even, than themselves.  It must be overwhelmingly  apparent that where young  men are offering themselves  c��or ordination, financial reward can have played no part  ,in their decision. One is humbled by the knowledge that  even older men, with family  responsibilities, accept this situation, believing that if God  has called them, He will make  a way possible.  On May 1, one such man is  Offering to serve the spiritual  needs of St. Bartholomew's,  Gibsons. Deeply aware of their  responsibility the congregation  has resolutely set about building a parsonage for the new  incumbent and his family. It is  not an easy task, yet a valiant  start has been made and building is underway.  But knowing the value of a  spiritual ministry to any community such as Gibsons, with  its ever increasing number of  children, the Parish Committee appeals to all right-minded  people, regardless of their religious affiliation, to aid them  financially with the building.  On this peninsula there are  many of no particular denomination who have used, or expect to use, the services of the  Church for baptisms, weddings  and burials ��� to mention the  more ofoviuos; perhaps they  even send their children to  Sunday School. It is to such  people, Mr. Editor, that we appeal for help and ask them to  send their offerings to the  Treasurer, Box 212, Gibsons.  John Clou,  Treasurer,  St. Bartholomew's Rectory Building Fund.  this advertisement is*oat pobiisherJ or displayed  Liquor Centrol Board or the Government of British  aaose  by the  Editor: I would indeed be  ungrateful if I did not write  you to thank you for referring  to me as a "good" Conservative. Mr. Sinclair at his meeting held next door to where I  live here said I was a rabid  Conservative and he was glad  I was not a Liberal. I might  point out that I voted for Billy  Buchanan, publisher of the  Lethbridge Herald before Mr.  Sinclair was born. I also voted  for another good Liberal, Joe  Bradette of Cochrane in-Nor-  " them Ontario who was also  elevated to the Senate as was  Billy Buchanan- He published  one of the really outstanding  papers in Canada, The Lethbridge Herald, and was every  inch a man.  For over 50 years the ABC  of newspaperdom has been  ? "Accuracy, Brevity, Clarity."  All really good newspapers  have observed that and still  do observe it. -  Your article headed "Sinclair hits back at his attackers" written and printed, if  not published, before the meeting was held could hardly  come "under the heading of  "Accuracy." The article headed "Election episode letter answered" icould hardly come under the. heading of "Brevitv"  or "Clarity." It is unfortunate  that this answer did not come  from a reader, it would have  sounded better.  As to my leaving myself  wide open to ridicule, 1 move  round the. ��� peninsula much  more than you do and have  talked with many on this score  The average' observation is  "The old man must have been  pretty mad when he wrote  that." This comes from Liberals as well as Conservatives.  Personally I think you used  very poor judgement to put it  as kindly as possible. '  I overlooked mentioning in  my*previous letter that when  Mr. Clifford held his meeting*  here on the Tuesday before th��  joint, meeting at Powell River .....  I am told that he- mentioned  that that joint meeting had al- ���  ready been written up.  If you decide to have the  thieves arrested and tried I  will make it a point to attend  the trial which will, of course,  be held at Gibsons.  B.L. Cope.  *    *    *  Editor's Note: Mr. Cope is  getting so far out of his depth  that it would be wiser for him  to get back to shallow water.  If Mr. Payne, Cope and  others had not read that specific item concerning Mr. Sinclair  and the Powell River meeting  until the proper day of publication, namely-"T h u r s d a y  morning, THE DAY AFTER-  THE POWELL RIVER MEETING, not a soul would have  said boo, even ever so quietly.  But because some unprinci-.  pled individual stole, deliberately; a copy of an uncompleted paper, Mr. Cope is in the  Seventh heaven of political eC-  stacy.  As for the reply coming  from a reader, a preference  mentioned by Mr. Cope, , it  should be revealed that Mr.  Cope is a reader and he definitely did not know all the facts  If Mr. Cope has any idea  of who stole the unfinished  newspaper he could, being a  justice of the peace arid upholder of the law, pass on to  the Coast News all information  he has about the theft. If he has  no facts on which tb work, he  should as a J.P.. and upholder  of the law, maintain a dignified silence until he knows  what he is talking about.  Should he expect the average  reader to know more or even  as much as he does?  The Coast News does not desire to weary its readers with  Mr. Cope's newly- found seventh heavejn in politics and  hopes this week's lucid explanation will be clear enough for  Mr. Cope as -well as the most  ^ backward pupil in any elementary school along the Sunshine  Coast:  *    * . *      ...  Mr. Al Alsgard of the Powell River News had this to say  about    the    point    Mr.    Cope  raised:'  .We can symphathize with  the Coast News in trying to  keep on time during a busy  streich, by reporting an unhap-  pened meeting, for the -Coast,  News is a small paper and it  hasn't got all. the high speed  typesetting equipment it would  like to have. And we can sympathize with its owner-editor,  Fred Cruice. By what devious  means Mr. Payne came into  possession of the unfinished  and unpublished printed sheet  was not explained. It would  have been indeed funny if The  Coast News had thrown away  its pre-printed sheets and made  another press run.  Mr. Payne, who is said to be  an expert on parliamentary  i procedure, (parliamentary procedure is built upon: attention  to detail and accuracy) should  have known that the sheet he  quoted from was not a published newspaper. It was not even  printed on the other side.  In small plants a newspaper is PRINTED two or four  pages at a time, throughout the  week. It is not PUBLISHED  until all the sections have been  gathered together and the  whole made ready for distribution. The same, applies to- any  printed magazine, booklet, etc.  Of approximately 280,000 immigrants to Canada last year, tht  largest group was British.  ��   CLEARING  ���   GRADING *  �� BASEMENTS  DRIVEWAYS  LOGGING, Etc,  Call for  free estimates  I Phone   Sechelt 183F  same night  SAME TIME  tan  SAME PLACE  in go  THURSDAY, APRIL  17 ��� Gibsons School Hall ��� 8 p.m. Sharp  0  BUS CASH PRIZES  $5 ��� $10 - $15 - $25 - $50  Don't Miss First Game - $10  Sunshine Coast Welfare Fund  year  There I was-the last guest had  - *  gone and there was a mountain of  4  dishes to do-and no hot water!
