Testfor  drivers  Several hundred drivers on  the Sechelt Peninsula have received or will receive notice  from the Motor Vehicles  Branch, Victoria to report to'  the Legion Hall, Sechelt, for,  driver's  examination.  These tests are under direction of G. Lippe of the Vancouver office of the department  who points out that examinations are only for persons in  possession of licenses restricted to the Pennsula.  The schedule calls for 21  persons to be tested daily with  the examination consisting of  written test, road test and eye  test.  Mr. Lippe suggests that, in  order to facilitate matters, drivers should thoroughly peruse  the drivers' manual from,  which the questionable of 25  questions is compiled.  Another factor of importance  in these tests is that anyone being originally tested in an automatic transmission vehicle is  restricted to driving that type  of vehicle.

New struggle looming  Conversation with people connected with labor movements brings to light the fact these people do not regard as important the rising tide against the present trend of unionism.  There also appears to 'be the feeling that if you offer advice not  consonant with this trend you are anti-labor.    .  Be that as it may the Coast News will have to take the  chance of being called anti-lalbor by pointing out a few well-established facts. One is that the general public is definitely not in  sympathy with the present trend of continued union demands,  some of which are regarded as just too much.  There is also a rising tide against United States dominated  unions running labor in Canada. This is quite logical. Ask yourself what the senate and congress of the United States would do  if a union in the U.S. was ordered to strike by its Canadian executive. Can you visualize how those same dignified senators and  congressmen would loudly protest having that grand old flag  of the United States of America trampled on by some outsider?  Well, it looks like some people in Canada, sick of U.S. labor  leadership are feeling that someone is being trampled on in Canada and wouTd like to see something done about it.  You also have the fact, in the United States, that unions  can be hied to court for obstructing a non-union man from working. This is quite logical, too. Are unionists the only ones with  rights?  One should think back to the days when unionism was  fighting to exist. It had a hard struggle. A considerable amount  of work was done so that the unionist of the day could enjoy the  benefits he now has. It was no easy road for union leaders back  in the pre-Gompers days. Unionism took considerable selling then.  It was then a visionary fight. Today it is a monetary fight with  some international unions being wealthy enough to practically  control some industries.  To get back to the original thought of those labor people  who discount the rising tide against them it could be that before  too many years pass legislation will be enacted to save the rest  of the populace against the demands of trade unionism. Unionism  had small beginnings. The Society for the Protection of 'People  from Unionism can also be small and can also grow ��� just like  trade unions did  Think it over Mr. Trades Unionist ��� and don't call the  Coast News anti-labor because it notes a trend and comments on  the same. ������_..���"���"?       .   -A   ���  Evidence of progress  The number of telephones along the Sunshine Coast continues to grow and when one; remembers that in 1947 there were  not more than 80-odd phones ��� including surrounding islands  in that number ��� the increase in little more than ten years is  startling.  At March 1 'this year the total number of phones in use  through the Gibsons, Sechelt and Pender Harbour exchanges was  1,467. There were 772 on the Gibsons exchange, 530 on Sechelt  exchange and 185 on Pender Harbour exchange.  Evidence of further substantial growth expected in this  district is contained in the plans for new1 exchange buildings at  Gibsons, Sechelt and Port; MellonT.In the latter locality, ^ial telephone service is scheduled to be inaugurated Nov. 30, 1958  Don't Say Bread  1     Say   "McGAVlN'S"  NORMAN STEWART  Local Sales Rep.

Buckley, principal of  Pender Harbour high school to  the graduating class this^year.  The address is complete except  for the introductory remarks.  ���^    rfs    ^  At all graduation ceremonies  that I have been connected  with I have always been conscious of overtones of sadness.  I suppose this is occasioned by  the recognition that it is a milestone in the lives of these  young# people whom you have  got to know so well ��� a time  of parting of the ways between  friends ��� and they are not ordinary friends in a school like  this. There is a wonderful spirit of camaradie among the class  of '58. They are like members  of'a happy family. They are  going to miss each other arid  the rest of us are going to miss  them too.  I am aware that is is easier  to have this "Goodbye Mr.  Chips" atmosphere- in a small  school than a large one. But  it would not be possible for  any class to have it without the  right kind of personalities and  I think it reflects great credit,  ��� not only on these students, but  their parents and the home-  life that they have had that  there is such good spirit among  them. I cannot help feeling that  instead of giving the usual advice and wish that you will  all be very successful and make  a lot of money that perhaps  you should carry on this spirit  of good fellowship with you  into a world that is torn with  bitterness and strife.  If you do it will help the people around you in any walk  of life and you will be successful and happier. than if money  making is your main purpose.  They say you can't have your  cake and eat it too. I suppose  this is true but I don't see any  sense in making a lot of cake  if you can't eat any of it and,  above all, have the feeling of  well-being that comes with  sharing some of it with others.  A philosophy like this is no  good unless it is put into practice. I think that one of the  first places where you should  apply it is to try and understand your own parents a little  better and this applies even  more to the other students who  are following you in the lower  grades. If you did this they  would understand you better  and your problems. Your parents, and most other adult  well-wishers who give you advice from time to time, lived  through the- depression and  World War when money was  scarce. Most of them think that  you have too much money and  that you are getting things too  easily and don't appreciate  what is being done for you and  so on.  I don't entirely agree with  this. The times are different,  inflation deceives people into  thinkng they have more money  than they have. You will have  to work hard in order to pass  these examinations next month  Many of the adults of the last  generation could , never have  passed such examinations that  demand a high standard of  knowledge. Yet it is a fact that  your parents had more chores  to do when they were your  age and frequently more responsibility and less entertainment. They did not have as  many, cars, radios, TV sets and  many of , the mechanical gadgets that you have now. If you  put yourself in their place (and  you will be 20 years from now)  can you not see that their fears  may have some foundation and  they are only telling you these  things, as I am doing now, to  to help you to understand? You  can help promote this understanding if you are more tolerant  of their  advice.  It seems tragic to us that we  cannot pass on our knowledge  learned from bitter experiences, to the youth more easily  in order to save you much  , trouble. By an, "I'm from Missouri," chip on your shoulder  attitude you slow down your  learning process. Dp-"you al-  way? Are you not going to believe that the earth: is round  ways have to learn the hard  until you have travelled around  it yourself? Is the alternative  to being a "knothead" to be a  "Milquetoast"? Wise people are  those who listen and observe,  as well as talk, and they make  better friends.  Returning to the grads again.  Some of you will be leaving  the Harbour to get further education at university or to seek  employment elsewhere. We of  Ithe High' School staff want  you to feel that this is your  home base and that you can  and will return to this district.  Those who stay will remain  part of the community life,  and, returning to my theme of  the promotion of better understanding between adults and  youth, you can. help with that  a great deal right here. It  iseerhs to me that an unnecessary chasm has been created.  Many adults, who should know  better, seem to regard all teenagers as "untouchables" and  many teeh-agers regard all adults as "old crabs" or "old fogies."  Age is' a purely relative  thing. At Egmont last Saturday  night I saw teen-agers enjoying  themselves at a dance with adults including their own parents. Why can't it foe done in  other peaces? Perhaps it is  time we adults stopped using  the word teen-ager altogether.  It is almost as if they are a  class apart from society. You  grads- of '58 are semi-adults in  my thinking, young men* and  women.. I deeply sympathize  with your desire to be differ  ent. All youth through all the  ages has been that vMy, and that  is why we have had' progress,  because some of the youth were  different by excelling the previous generation.  This is a very complicated  world that you have been  brought nto. You are being lectured on thrift by a generation  that put ever $2000 debt on  your heads before you were  born. Many of the goods and  services, that adults are fond1  of saying that they are providing for you are on borrowed  funds spread over periods of  20 and 30, years. It h you who  are going to have to pay for  them. In spite of our worthy  United Nations we are a long  way yet from world peace.  There are tremendous problems that you are going to have  to solve. If this school has helped to give you knowledge and f  made you understand how to  get along better with your fel-  lowman I am very proud of it.  I hope that this is true,and  that you will always look back  on the days in Pender Harbour;  High School as being happy  useful days in the life that is  ahead of you.

We were ushered int oa room  about twice the size of the Coast  News office, just as plain as  plain could be, painted a dull  yellow, in Royal Arms, nothhg,  just the dais, for the three judges,  table for the reporter, table for  the lawyers, jury box and half  a dozen lines of pews for the  public, narrow hard seats, exactly as uncomfortable as those  in the Black Ball waiting room  aft Horseshoe" Bay.  The business on hand was appeals by conscientious objectors  who    had    been ordered to do  their  military service.   As  conscription is now ended in Britan,  I was curious to learn why these  young fellows were now in the  mill.  It seems that  years   ago,  when they gat their call-up, they  pleaded   they  were apprentices,  and   were    given extensions to  complete   their   apprenticeships,  which they had done.

The one we  listened to was  not sworn, as we swear a witness, but was  asked to   affirm  with uplifted hand, the chief of  the three judges, not the clerk  of the court, handling the affir-'  mation. The applicant then sat  down   at   the   table facing the  judges and his statements were  received with the utmost respect  by the, court. We did not await  the decision, for the judges retired to consider, but from my  knowledge of courts. I am pretty  sure that Her Majesty wa|S about  to receive some most unwilling  recruits.   The   surroundings   of  Andy Johnson's Assize Court at  Sechelt are luxurious compared?  wilth what we  saw and sat on.  Today we paid a visit to the  college which I attendedi-50 years  ago. The place where the college  stood when I was ithere is now  covered by the Royal Infirmary,  and about 30 years ago a new  and splendid set of buildings  were erected further ovfc, in  Colinton.  We were invited to meet the  Headmaster at 11.00 a.m. and  with him the vice-convenor of  the Merchant Company. Introductions having been made, we  had coffee and short-bread, and  conversation proreeded much  along the lines of Saturday morning in the Coast News office. The  vice-convenor, a prominent Scottish ship-builder, happened to  have been colour-sergeant of  Glasgow High School about the  same time as I had been at my  school, so to round things off.  we requested the presence of the  present colour sergeant and had  a pleasant chat with him.  The Head showed us over the  school. The buildingsi are of  stone in the shape of an H, the  long arms of the H being 180  yards long, two storey, and the  short connecting branch being  the school hall, holding about  2,000, interior decoration by  Basil Spence, designer of Coventry Cathedral, a former pupil.  There was a very fine cafeteria and a wonderful swimming pool and outside, about  half a mile of grassy playground.  The appointments of the various  rooms did not strike me as equal  to ours, and the manual training facilities were just about the  same as we have.  One thing that impressed me  was the art studio, and the work  done by the boys, who leave  school at ah average age of 17 Vs  was something' remarkable.  When I remembered the severely  practical and distinctly classical  education I got there, I thought  I had been 50 years too soon.

Matters concerning airports, road works, park  development, housing projects  for the aged, can be dealt with  more effectively through contact with government departments rather than by discuss  ting sucjh problems 'in one's  maiden speech.  It has been a most pleasant  experience in doing business  on this informal and personal  basis. The ministers have been  most co-operative and extremely helpful, and all have shown  both an intimate knowledge of  the problems and a great desire  to see them cared for.  While speaking of the ministers of the Crown, I feel x  should say a word, of how  proud the 15 other 'Conservative members from British Columbia are of our three cabinet  ���members, Hon. Howard Green,  the Hon. George Pearkes and  the Hon. E. Davie Fulton. British Columbia is indeed playing  a prominent part in the affairs  of this nation, and yet, despite  the tremendous responsibility  these three men carry, they do  so with a quiet dignity and a  pleasant informality..

This presents  a corifusing problem to the average householder who has a  meagre ?khowledge of soil chemistry.  'Two factors assist him. Regular  tions in Canada compel the  manufadburer to print the analysis Of his product stating the  percentages of nitrogen, phosphorus and potash contained  which are the most important  elements. Then, as plants are  fairly tolerant, little damage re-  suits from using fertilizers oi  different formulae according to  directions, provided the fertilizer  does not -come in direct contact  wi'bh leaves or roots.  Tests  at the Central   Experimental Farm, Ottawa,   over the  past two summers, showed that  on sandy loam soil, annual flow-  - ers responded best to 2-4 lb. per  100 square feet of a 5-10-13  fertilizer (5 percent nitrogen, 10  percent phosphorus, 13 percent  potash). Too much fertilizer, or  fertilizer that supplies too much  of one element, is of course  wasteful.  T n i s fertilizer combination  proved best on" the local sandy  soil which is natorally low in  available phosphoros and potash  while on clay soils, a fertilizer  with less of these two. elements  would probably prove as saitis-  faicltory. i  'To get the best results it is at-  visable to determine what is in  your soil by analysis.

LT  Board settles  BCE easements  A board of arbitration has  awarded $23,755 to two landowners on Lula Island for easements  required by B.C. Eleo!bric for  electrical transmission lines. The  landowners had asked for $70,-  000.  Sunset Farms Limited was  awarded. $14:550 compared to  $40,000 sought by Sunset Farms  and $8,750 offered by the utility  company. J. G. Bath was awarded  $9,200 compared to $30,000  sought by Mi'- Bath. B.C. Electric  had offered $8,000.  In each case the award represented approximately 40 per  cent of the value of the land in  the right of way.  Easements authorize B.C. Electric to construct and maintain  towers, poles and wires on the  ���land and restrict the placing of  obstructions on the right of way  by the owners.  Commenting on the awards, "A.:  B- Robertson, Q.C., vice-president  and general solicitor of B.C.  'Electric, -said:' "They represent-  a realistic answer to a difficult  problem of appraisal.
