Small consumers with bills  totalling $3 or less would not  be affected, he said.  "Raters for, commercial and  small industrial cust.ome r.s  would be increased by 5 to 10  per cent on the Mainland, and  by approximately 7 per cent  on Vancouver Island south,"  he added. "Rates for large in  dustrial   consumers,  who- pay  miich  less per  kilowatt hour,  would  face larger increases."  :$lr. Grauer said the application placed before the Public  ^Utilities   Commission  Wednesday, afternoon   resulted .from  iricjreasing,   costs   which   have  accumulated over a number of  'years.  ? Since then, Mr.* Grauer explained, the company has facedia heavy expansion program  to ?;;keep power production in  step with requirements which  have more than doubled since  1950.  Construction costs have risen sharply during that period,.  while the company's rate of  earnings has declined steadily  during the past three years,  he said./  The Public Utilities Commis-*  sion, Mr. Grauer stated, has established that a "fair and reasonable" earnings rate based  on the cost of service Facilities  was 6V& per cent.

'One point stressed was that  there.were many people who  would not supply the ^police  with names when.it came to  a �� shoiwdbwn and it was  thought this was a poor way to  combat youthful depredations.

In some cases  the religious ceremony and the  ���fire-lighting- ceremonies will  be linked.  - Official suggestion states,  "Tne lighting of beacon fires  should cap. a very full day and-  the moment of the fire-lighting  itself should' have great significance."  Fire-lighting time across the  ���province has been.set> for (9.30  .. p".m.- ���'���'" : ;  It   is  expected   many   com  munities will add such attractions as military displays, Indian dancing, Boy Scout displays and fireworks.  Suggested' material for the  beaconJighting : ceremony includes as part of a pre-fire address, these lines:  "Their glow will also be a  beacon light for the future, the  ,flames will symbolize our faith  in the strength of our people  for the road ahead, they will  give warmth, and light to our  hands and hearts while we  stand here together in peace  and companionship.  ....��� 'Kneel always when you  light afire,  "Kneel reverently  .'"And thankful be  "For God's unfailing charity."     . ���   "  Phone rates increase application ��utlsned  The>- British -^olumbia Tele-  pho?n0 Company has - applied  to the Board of.

Proposed increases fop var  ious  classes/ of residence  and"  business:; exchahge?i.ser vie e  would vary between, the smal-,  lest and the largest exchanges.  For example, increases' for residence    individual   s e r v i c e  would, vary from 45 cents in  the case.of a small exchange  like Hope, to 90 cents for the  same type of service in Vancouver.    Residence    two-party  ;  service would rise between 35 ^  and  70 cents, throughout   the  ^system,   and   residence   multiparty rates -would be increased  between 30 and 60 cents.  The proposed increase in  business individual s e r v i c e  would ^^?from*$i:20^to $3.50  depending on^cthe* size of the  exchange, while business multi  party service would go., up  from  15 cents to $1.

A suggestion discussed but  left open for future reference  was accommodation for pleasure ^craft in this area. It is  hoped to be able to get the  Conservative member, W.H.  Payne, M.P. to attend a Board  of Trade meeting in order to-  have the .matter threshed out.  Identification of streets by  having signs put up in proper  places was brought up but one  village' commissioner stated  that no sooner were they put  up somebody pulled them  down so the. effort was 'wasted.  The board decided to, hold a  draw with $75 in prizes in order to obtain funds with which  to work. Details of the draw  will be announced later. There  will be two prizes $50 and $25  at some, local store.  It was moved that the Board  of Trade year be changed to  the calerWar year instead of  from June to June in order to  allow beter continuity by having the same set of officers  throughout the year.

(Continued on Page  3)  Gibsons village council has  protested to govemment authorities and to the member of  the legislature for this area  over the situation that has.  arisen as a result of government changes in- the manner  which school boaryis are finan-  ��� ced. ���....  The following telegram was  sent to Premier Bennett by  the Village Commission: "Preliminary : figures issued by  your, department indicate  marked increase in local levy  for school <costs over last year  stop we urge that provincial  government contribution be increased to ease burden on local taxpayer."  A letter was sent Tony Gargrave, M.L.A. for Mackenzie  constituency which includes  Gibsons and Sechelt. This letter pointed out the tax increase would amount to 17;  percent and  that there  is the  possibility of more serious tax  increases: because of proposed  borrowing t which would have  to be repaid.  'The letter to Mr. Gargrave  concluded by stating: "One of  the costs of local school, operation is interest paid on casual  . borrowmg through which the  school board, is forced to obtain money in lieu of payments  by the provincial government.  "Quite regularly these scheduled remittances are not received but the. department has  authorized the local school  board to borrow from the bank  in the meantime. This is done  and the local board pays the  interest charges.  "In effect this means the local taxpayer is financing the  government. This may help toward that heralded 'debt free'  state, but we, the local taxpayer are carrying the load." 2    Coast News.

British Columbia's Social Credit government headed by  Premier Bennett is as unpredictable as the weather. It had a  revenue surplus available lor appropriation at the end of the  last fiscal year totalling $40,914,142. It also boasts of the lowest  per capita public debt, $123.73, since ,1922.  It has tried to curtail expenditures! on prisons, keep hospital boards expenditure within painful limits and now has municipalities on the spot over school taxes.  Looks like we have a good front yard but not such a tidy  backyard. Mr. Bennett is keeping provincial finances buoyant at  the expense of over-taxation and putting the squeeze on others.  Why?  If he has a well-laid plan let's hear what it is. Arousing  wrath in municipal men generally does not help any provincial  government! This municipal \wrath has been mounting for the  last year at least, and "increased" grants with other benefits are  not sufficient oil on stormy waters.  What is Mr. Bennett's reason? The general public as well  as municipal men would uke to know. Has it something to do  with federal-provincial relations plus education?  In his last budget speech on Feb. 7, 1958 the following appeared and was presented by him as premier and minister of  finance: "At no time has this government indulged in illusory*-  promises, and it can point with much pride to the many sound  and progressive policies it has initiated and to the bountiful benefits these promises already have yielded or will yield."  With provincial financing in such good shape thanks to  the taxpayer mainly, what is in the winds now buffeting the Social Credit government? Municipal men are looking askance at  the "'bountiful benefits" also the "sound and progressive policies."  Whereas ancl whereby  Vandoilism a menace  Vandalism is becoming a menacing factor in Gibsons, and  it is all so; senseless. Smashing windows, fun for small boys, nc  doubt and slashing hoses, done by not so young people, reveals  a destructive bent in the nature of the rising generation which  should be curbed now.  -  Suggestions have been made that such events be reported  to the RCMP, for action by thelm. This is as it should be but in  a small town people are not prone to seek the aid of police. If  people desire to accept the 'consequences of such vandalism without the aid of the forces of law and order that is their business,  but if examples are wanted, accepting the consequence and allowing the culprit to go free is no*^ the right way to go about it.  The right admonition in the right place at the right time is the  best thing yet devised to curb vandalism.

It is odd for so many people  to be concerned about the status  of Social Credit when they fail- .  ed to win a single se_ix Could'  it be that in the back of their  minds there is an idea that Social Cred.'iS has the answers to  our problems. �����  Incidentally,     your     editorial  which   mentions   "monetary   reform  of  a  DRASTIC   type,"   is r  misleading.    There    is    rlothing  drastic about Social Credit.  Social Creditors believe in a fine  set of principals that  promotes  progress  in a  dernocraltic? man-'  ner. The record verifies this and  I do not know of a single-drastic  incident. The Social Credit governments in Alberta and British.  Columbia  are   the best governments these provinces have ever  had.  Bitiber opposition is  to be  expected, but everyone should be  fair^to him or herself and vote  accordingly.  Most people are still wondering how, why- and. what ^happened in it_e eiectk>n.?��<5^ thing  is sure, they wanted a change.  If the change is for the good of  the nation, Social Credit will  support it. If the Conservatives  apply the fundamental principles  ���that will stabilize? bur economy  and eiucourage world peace, Social Credit will die as a political  movement.  y However, a? government - that  dissolves parliament in the face  of a falling economy does not  show reiponsibilitiy. The Conserv-.  ative governmitnt. has a touglii  time ahead, and there is no opposition to blame for any mistakes. The onus is on them, and  Social Creditors will watch and  act accordingly from the side  lines. The Conservatives will receive full recognition for all they  do, or fail to do.

Uid-  limited   water   supply,   salt   resources, and  its position as terminus of pipelines from Alberta  and  Texas,   to  mention  a   few,  have accounted for its phenomenal   growth.   Here  are  loca'ted  Canada's largest Fiberglass plant,  only synthetic-rubber plant, first  glycol   plant   and   only carbon-  black plant. Oil refineries, steamship  docks,  grain elevators and  flour   mills,   together  with   the  greatest concentration of petro-  c'hemii-J.vl   indufllries   in   Canada,  and ether local  industries have  brought Sarnia a long way from  a  small  settlement once  called  The Rapids.  The   name   Sarnia,  once   the   Roman   name for the  Channel   Island,   Goernsey,   was  suggested  in   1836 by Sir-John  Colborne, a former Lt.-Governor  of  Guernsey,  and   later Lt-Gov-  ernor of Upper Canada.  Who died "of Colonial  mis-rule"?  An (Upper Canada pioneer,  Robert Randall, who came to  Canada in 1798 from the American f��� South, settled in Niagara  Falls, where he built a sawmill,  and established an iron foundry  from which cjame the firsti  wrought iron manufactured in  Upper Canada. He also established a flour mill, in which was  ground the first flour sent from  Upper Canada to the British  Market. He  founded a mercan  tile business in, Cornwall and  erected Mie .first midr unit of a  projected development: at the  Chaudiere   Falls  en the Ottawa  '? River. He owned 950. acres of  Crown-granted land m what is  now Ottawa and valuable tracts  in other* parts of the province.  Failure on the part of his British agents resulted in his arrest  ���. for debt in 1809, and he spent  seven years in prison at Montreal. His holdings were sold for  a fraction of their true value,  though his holdings were much  more than sufficient to meat his  indebtedness. Randall spent  many years in fruitless efforts  to obtain redress for this, but  after he had been elected to the  provincial legislature in 1820,  and re-elected in 1825, he gained the friendship of William  Lyon Mackenzie, who made a  political issue against the Family  Compact out of Randall's case.  Randall's tombstone in the military cemetary at Lundy's Lane  bears the inscription: "He died  of Colonial mis-rule".  DOUGLAS FIRS  The average life of a commercial stand of mature Douglas fir,  the long-lived British Columbia  tree, is approximately 400 years  although trees of greater ages  are found. s  Tests of Canadian Douglas fir  bridge joisits after 43 years use  have shown that the timber is  as strong as freshly cut timber'  of the same species.  Canadian railroad ties are  made frem birch, beech, maple,  Douglas fir, western hemlock,  western, larch, jack-pine, and  lodgepole pine.  ��� ��� ���  Faced with unforeseen household expenses? ��� ���  ?Want;to make some special major" pur-\  chase??Need money for taxes���or to meet a  family emergency?

Parties are requested to file  with the Board, where practicable, copies of any -documents or exhibits to. be used  ���at. the hearing.  . The application states that  since the last increase authorized by the board in 1953 the  cost of providing and maintaining service "has registered a  substantial   increase   in   each  succeeding   ,year."    Tne   company   say_. tna't. despite   economies .effected  through  introduction of new and improved  , ^procedures andequipment, the  accumulated   effect   of   rising  costs caused earnings in 1957  to fall  tieiow the amount required to provide an adequate.  return on invested capital.  .'  "Estimates   for   1958   show  net income will be substantially below the amount required  preferred and ordinary shares"  to   provide   dividends, on  the  then    outstanding   preference,  Proposed increases  in   long  distance   rates  would  average  ib.i%: "  ��� . ���.

Power Outage  WEST SECHELT-HALFKOON BAY AREAS  Tuesday, April 29  In order to complete construction work in Halfmoon  Bay area it will be necessary; to have the following power  outages:'        . ��� ���'��� "'.'������*���'  9.15 a.m.   to   ��1.30 a.m.  1.30 p.m. to 3.45 p.m.  This w"0! affect customers at Bingharns  Beach,, West Sechelt, Welcome Beach, Red-  roiofs a>nd Halfmoon Bay.   B.C.  ELECT^C. COMPANY.    ���  Person-to-perspn rates would  ���rise more than station-to-station rates, and the discount allowed for night and Sunday-  calls would be reduced.  The impact of the proposed  long distance increases would  be partially   offset :on   Main-  land-Vahcouvef   traffic ��� by   a  one-third reduction in the basic submarine cable surcharge.  It now amounts to 30 cents on  a  three-minute  day station-to-  station call, and it would drop  to 20 cents. The surcharge was  established years ago to cover  the extra costs involved in pro-  viding   submarine   cables   between the Island and the Mainland. ��  The application has been filed in Ottawa, with the request"  that a hearing be granted as  soon as possible,, and copies of  the submission are being der  livered to provincial and municipal authorities.  The application proposes a  flat surcharge of 10 cents on  station-to-station collect calls  and station - to - station calls  charged to . a telehone other  than the calling or called telephone. This charge would not ,  apply to -credit or Zenith service calls,7.or,;oh person-to-person calls.  The aplication also propose.?,  alterations to the rate group-''  ing system. Under this system,  which has been in effect since  1950,. exchange monthly rentals are gased on the number  of telephones served by each  exchange. ,   >  Ther would be nine groups  Guaranteed  Watch &   *  Jewel^ Repairs  Chris* Jewelers  "  '    ���"'."'

The adoption of irregular areas would eliminate mileage charges for thousands of  subscribers   and have an   adverse effect on'relatively few.  The  application   notes   that  the. investment, in total  plant  rose from $271 per telephone  in'?se��vice in  1952 to $390 in  1957, and that total investment  in  telephone plant had risen  from $77,000,000 to $177,000,-  000 during the same period, au  increase.<of 130%.  Substantial amounts of capital had to be raised to carry  out the company's construction  -program,; the application states  and the cost of capital ��� both  debt and equity ���had risen  appreciably.  The company's 1958 construction program will require  gross capital expenditures of  $50,000,000, and of this sum  $30,000,000 must be obtained  through the issue and sale of  securities. The company antici- .  pates that construction expenditures will be substantially  higher during the five-year  period beginning this year than  they were during the previous  five-year  period.  The appication points out  that payrolls had increased  from $13,100,000 to $21,500,000  ah increase of 64%, while the  average number of employees  increased from *5,��166 to 6,652,  a rise of 29%.  The application also states  that through a change in the  basis of taxation of utilities in  1957, property taxes were increased by more than 40% in  one year, and that this component of the total cost of providing and maintaining service  increased from $360,000 in  1952 to $946,000 in 1957.

The bull-dozers  had really churned up.Canon  Oswald's once fine garden and  to some of the older members  of the team it was reminiscent  of Flanders fields ��� Passchen-  daele in particular ��� only the  smell was lacking!  But the . comradeship and  teamwork was there. Archie  Mainwaring and Jim Garlick  had organized a good crew:  youngsters for the wheel bar-  rdtws, oldsters to feed the cement mixers and the ladies of  the W.A. who fed the whole  gang^ a. healthy luncheon and  afternoon tea. (Flanders was  never like this!)  The task seemed impossible  at first. A mountain of sand,  gravel and cement had tb be  mixed and wheeled up planks  across the mire, and the rain  . was already trickling down  necks. But, when things seemed at their darkest, a carafe  of hot coffee, donated by Danny Smith, revived the crew  and then the arrival of the  ladies held promise of a hot  meal at noon, so even the faint-  �����  hearted felt able to carry on.  After lunch a fresh relay of  youth brought new impetus to  the task and by mid-afternoon  it was finished ��� but not the  rain.  The Church committee  thanks the young men who  gave up their Saturday leisure  to man the wheel barrows; Bob  Emerson, Bob Fretter, Ross  and Tony Garlick, John, and  Winston Robinson, and the not  so young Messrs. Webb, Clou  Clarkson, Atkinson, Pinks and  McDonald who operated the  cement mixers and kept things  in a state of perpetual motion.  To Mesdames ? Campbourne,  Dolley,' Ashworth, Edwards,  Atkinson and Miss Jarvis, who  manned the canteen, go the  thanks of all. The provincial  works crew deserve a special  vote of thanks for their co-operation in giving access across  the ditches for the loaded  trucks.

Y  '' "������''  Ahd where hypertension is involved, increased resistance is  offered to the flow of blood? by  the- narrowing������"(or constriction)  of ithe smaller vessels ��� the.'-ar-  teriqles.  What happens? All parts of  the body keep right on demanding their usual quotas of oxygenated blood. So the heart responds  (by working harder against these  greater pressures. As a result,  /the heart may grow larger and,  ultimately find itself unable to  cope with its increased workload. Or, a hardened blood-vessel may burst.  Hypertension ��� frequently in  association with hardening of the  arteries ��� can lead to heart  strain,"   actual    heart    disease,-  "strokes,"   or   degenerative   diseases of the-kidneys.  In a vast majority of all hypertension cases ������- perhaps 90 percent ���������. the cause is unknown.  Medical ?science calls this "essen-  tial 'hypertension." It is a .top  priority researh target. Once thev  causes are known, it should be  ���much easier to find methods of  prevention1 or even cure.        '  But in the meantime, much is  already known about the successful management of hypertension  cases. Thanks to research, new  drugsi have been discovered  which aire j.-. effective in reducing  high blood pressure ih a high  percentage of hypertensive patients. '  These new drugs do not have  a curative effect?.since the high  blood pressure returns once the  drug has been stopped. Burt with  many   patients    they  appear to*  keep blood pressure down more  or less permanently if they are  given continuously. Too, sqme  selected cases are yielding to  surgical correction.  The quest for new knowledge  abouib, h*yperfcension. is going forward on Nmany fronts. Many important _aI>s , in our knowledge  of this complex problem - have  been bridged, while others remain to be filled in. When all  components of the great jigsaw  puzzle are available, and when  they are fitted together t�� form,  a recognizable picture, an outstanding milestone in medical  history will have been achieved.,  This is a vital research effort  iai which all individuals may1 participate. You support research  when you make a generous investment in the 1958 Heart Fund.  Donations may be made at  your nearest bank branch.  No. 4  The mysteries of high blood  pressure, like those associated  with hardening of the arteries,  constitute a prime target of research supported by your Heart  Foundation and .made [_ possible  by your contributions to the  Heart Fund.  These twin villains work separately or in collaboration with  one another. Togeither with rheumatic fever, they are responsible  for more than 90 percent of all  heart disease.  For a better understanding of  high blood pressure, or hypertension, as it is called by physicians, consider; this analogy:  r. Let us assume that all householders in your community install V2 inch water pipes in their  hasements, rather than conventional 1 inch pipes. This would  impose an additional burden on  the (central pumping stations; as  . a result, the overloaded} pump  might weaken, or, break dowrn, or  one of the pipes might burst;  TThe illustration is appropriate  since the body, too, has a central  pump ��� the heart, which! must  circulate blood through channels  or pipes of1 various sizes known  Fairmite   Boat   Works  Boats in Complete or any  Stage of Construction, fr��m-  8 ft. to 25 ft. .*?'.'..'." 1 ���"'.'���''���  Life Saving aihd Fire Fighting Equipment.

She especially  . remembered one about tlie late  Will Rogers and at 'her request  publish it again. Here it is.  When a great man dies, people  try to sum up in a few words  why he was famous, and so when  Will Rogers died in 1935, he was  referred to as "the man-who  made people laugh." It was a  good description oi him.  He was born in Oklahoma in  1879 and was proud? of the fact  that both his parents had Indian  blood in their veins. Will used to  say, "My ancestors didn't come  over on the Mayflower��� they  met the boaib." That was typical  of him. He made-jokes about all  kinds ' of people? and chiefly  about himself. The words "humor" and "human" spring from  the same root; that is where humor differs from wit Wit is  smart aind brilliant, but often  hurts ��� cuts like a knife.  Will Rogers was a humxDrfst in  the true sense of that word. He  never deliberately set out to-  hurt   anybody..  He    once   said,  .."When I die, you can put on my  tombstone that I joked about  every prominent man of my time,  but I ngver met a man I didn't  , like." He loved people, all kinds  of them and he passed through  the world like a ray of sunshine,  taking happines and good will  wherever he went.  * * * ���  . Thg Oklahoma cowboy humorist made friends all over tlie  world. He-was the best advertisement America had. Kings, prime  'ministers, presidents, and leading ; diplomats respected and  ;loved him. When he was killed  in an airplane crash near Point'  [Barrow, Alaska, tribultes to hL��  w-orth  came   in   by.   hundreds.  Cantor, said  what thou-  JEddie  ���sands of others thought:  'He was  ���s*sT?saa��^tnr  probably the most beloved man  of our time. His life was an example to us all. He was never  involved in any scandals, and  there wasn'ifc an atom, of envy or  malice in his system."  He had so much natural ability  that he culd have succeeded in,  a ddzen different ways. He spent  his early life as a cowboy, and  it was his. ability to do amazing  tricks with his rope that first  brought him to public attention.  An outstanding* quality of his  character was humility. As his  income and popularity increased,  he seemed to become more  humble. He always appeared  puzzled that his performances  were so much enjoyed. He never  made any pretensions about himself. When admiring friends  praised him, he said: "Shucks,  -why all this fuss about me, I  am just an old cowboy who has  had a bit of luck." When Oklahoma University wanted to give  him an honorary degree of Doctor of Letters, he declined. "The  only degree that would suit me,"  he said, "is D. A. ��� Doctor of  Applesauce."  *    *    *  O?" til til j Stories about Will  Rogers this one is the best. One<  evening he took Mrs. Rogers for  an automobile ride, arid they decided to stop at a motion picture  theatre. As he approached the  box office, he discovered he had  no money with him. Mrs. Rogers-  purse also was empty. "Let's go  home, Betty," he said sheepishly.  And /they did.  It sd happened that one of his  own pictures was being shown,  that evening, and one word to  the management would ��have  been enough to bring him a  great welcome. They would have  felt* it a great honor to, make  him their guest. But Will wasn't  built that way. He didn't seek  favors, nor did 'he do any boasting. No wonder he was -one of  the best loved men of mdenv  ���times. ������ " .  lylffl  12-20; 40, 42  The delight? of your daytime  life ��� this easy-sew shirtwaister  that's so casual, comfortable to  wear.
