This survey took into consid-.  eration building permits issued in Gibsons totalling '$114,-'  900 and in Sechelt, totalling  $132,480. The remaining  amount, $346,000 was covered  by construction in the unor-,  ganized areas.  .  "B.C. Electric officials made  the survey and in unorganized  areas   it   was   an   on-the-spot  (check   of    new   construction. ?  These officials pomt put that  final   construction   figures? in  most cases would?ibe greater   ���  than   original '���-:esthMfes.X^e;v.'  same would aj^y^  permits issued in the villages  of Sechelt and Gibsons. On  this basis it can be assumed  that the $600,000 figure is no  exaggeration.  There were'three months in  the year when no new building started and they were June  ?bf i95-7, December;.1957, and  March, 1958. It is also pointed  out?;_that the building figures  Jor the unorganized areas were  not started until November of  last yfia^ a  six mojith period in which con-  structiq&^was ^started with no  figured to? show how much.  '''vj--The'ayierag_;;a^punt''6f build  ing permonth based on the six  month figures available was  close to $50,0.00 so adding this  figure would? bring the total  construction for the area closer to the-million dollar mark  but the Coast News prefers to  stress? actual 'figures rather  than figures which mayor may  not be accurate.  ?Such      construction     work  means a considerable amount  of work for contractors hi all  building lines and judging  ���from reports from companies  supplying building, materials,  both the; contractors and the  building supply houses ? have  had a busy year.  ?    $~ y  Centennial  ~__ere is a roundup of permanent Centennial projects  from Port Mellon to Pender  Harbour:  Port Mellon: Clearing and  development of the beach area  at Seaside to improve the  beach for swimming purposes.

The pic*  lure shows ^Harriet Elizabeth  Gibson   on   her  wedding   day  when  she   married Albert  A.  McCall in Vancouver in 1900.  Mrs.. McCall^ whose husband  died in 1947, was 80 years old  on April 20, and now lives in  Victoria. She came with the  family from Chatham, Ont., in  1886 by train to Port Moody  and then by boat to Vancouver  and later to Gibsons.  Hey kids, how about  some swimming lessons?  The'Gibsons Kecreation committee and the Kinsmen "Club  will sponsor free swimming  lessons during July and August for children in this area.  Miss Donna Clements, a q'ual  ified Red Cross instructress,  will be in charge of the classes.  Assisting her will be young  swimming enthusiasts who  may have a chance to become  instructors in the' future. Several parents have already offered servicesA to assist the  Kin s m e n in: maintaining  smoothly run classes and to  keep an eye out for any possible dangers.  The Kinsmen Jbad hoped to  get the swimming started earlier but due to "the lack of nee  essary fands -were unable to  do so. Now the;Recreation committee has come to the rescue  with financal help and the lessons will start as soon, as the  registration forms are in and  lists of students compiled.  These classes will be held at  the Municipal float below the  Village office, on Monday and  Wednesday evenings from 6:30  till 8:30.  Children six years of age or  over may enter but due to the  large number of swimming s'tu-  dents expected, it may have  to be restricted to certain age  limits. Please have all official  registration forms, as shown  below, in before July 3.  Mail all applications to  KINSMEN SWIM CLASSES,  Box 164, in Gibsons, of leave  with Bert Crowhurst at Totem  Realty. Children who have,  sent in their forms, who are  in the age group 6 to 9, should-  come'down on Monday, even-,  ing, July 7 and those over 9 on  Wednesday July 9- AH entries'  must be on this form and attach list if more space is. needed.  In 1951, the government adopted the policy of offering successful bidders for Crown timber the option of electing to  pay the full bid price subject  to equal or upward re-appraisal every two years, or have the  bid price fluctuate with the rise  and fall of the average market  price for logs or lumber as determined by the forest service.  After July 1, 1958, all new  timber sale stumpage will be  paid on the basis of the sliding  scale. This means the stumpage  rate will be adjusted periodically in relation to each 15 per  cent fluctuation in the average  market prices, recognized by  the forest service.  r The purpose of. the new policy is to give relief to those  logging operators who in the  past have been caught in the  -falling market without a compensating decline in. stumpage  rates. The new policy will not  apply to minor products or salvage, the minister pointed ��ut.  After July X, 1958, operators  holding timber sales which do  not include the sliding scale  provision will be offered the  opportunity to take advantage  of the sliding- scale upon application to the local district foresters. Special forms for this  application will shortly be in  the mail tb all -Umber sale contract holders throughout the  province. .  .. At the present time sliding  scale privileges may be elected  by any operator at the time the  timber sale is granted. Approximately 70 percent of all operators are on this system now.  DONATE $20  Replying to a protest by Gibsons Village Commission, B.C.  Telephone Company in a letter  Tuesday night to the commission explained that when the  .company took over from Government    Telephones   there  'were 370 Gibsons phones served through a single magneto  switchboard and now there are  ^794 jjfefyed through a six-posi-  : &op-4Wup, andsb far $150,000  has been spent inside and outside, as regards-the phone system.  The letter to the commission  was prompted by one from the  commission protesting increased rates for phone service. The  B.C. Telephones letter explained that the number of subscribers served by individual lines  has increased from 46 to 196,  an increase of 350 percent.  B.C. Telephones letter also  explained that obsolete phones  are being replaced and that the  hours of operation which were  from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. are now  on a 24 hour basis.  The   attitude of  the village  commission is that the service  offered has not increased per  centage-wise to warrant   such  increase in phone rates.  The problem of street lighting costs between B.C. Electric  and the village has been drawn  to the attention of the Public  Utilities Commission. The protest claims the rate is too high.  Accounts totalling $466.04  were ordered paid of which  $321.85 was for roads, $126.20  fire protection, $14; 21 general  and $3.78 prater.  Tenders on the V.L.A. water  pipe line construction were  opened and tabled for further  consideration.  Stop signs are to be placed  on both sides of Fletcher road  at School Road crossing, also  on Wynn road entering Gower  Point Road.

First game starts at  8 p.m. Remember about the  early bird, $50 will buy a lot  of worms, and other things.  The BIG DAY comes Tuesday when Gibsons Centennial  celebration starts at 9 a.m. and  will last until the wee small  hours.  At 9 a.m. at the Municipal  Float, there will be swimming  races for children, diving events, and log rolling with other  water sports as they become  available. This will carry on  for most of the morning.  Then at 11:30 a.rr_. the 60  float parade will start to line  up in Elphinst|ne High school  area ready for judging at 12:30  by three judges who will be  picked on the spot by Parade  Marshall Jack Marshall.

By three o'clock it is expected Kinsmen Club sports for  youngsters will be underway  with the open challenge tug-  of-war event following. This  tug-of-war challenge should attract several good ten-man  teams and a lively battle may  occur. Beard judging is planned at well.  Following the field sports  there will be a ball game at  4 o'clock between two junior  league teams.  Ancient mariners  Two hardy old Scotsmen  who have been fishing out of  Pender Harbour for many  years have left again for the  fishing grounds. Angus Kerr  and his brother, Peter, aged,.  84 and 79 respectively, have  left with their gill net boats  for another season. Each owns  his own boat and the boats are  kept ship  shape  all the year  round-  They are probably the oldest  fishermen on this coast and  have been very successful in  landing their share each season. This year they will fish  about 100 miles north of Pen-  der Harbour.  During the afternoon on the  field there will be refreshments  available and music by the  Girls Pipe Band.  There? will be a lull in the  day's celebration after the ball  game until 9 p.m. when there  will be a fireworks display and  fire, float. Firemen of Gibsons  and Sechelt will have charge  of the fire float and fireworks.  There will be some daylight  fireworks which will be set  off first and then later on regular'fire works.

The microwave/Stations are  spaced an average of 30 miles  apart. The massive steel towers range in. height from 50  feet to a 350 foot giant at Ol-'  > ive, 40 miles north of North  Bay in Ontario. This tower  weight 120 tons and has concrete footings together containing 170 cubic yards of concrete. The towers are so sturdy  that 100-mile-an-hour winds  are unable to make them sway  enough to effect service.  Huge antennae weighing  1,700 pounds and shaped like  immense sugar-scoops are installed on most towers. The  microwave signals are beamed  from antenna to antenna like  light from a beacon.  Because of built-in protective features ��� such as auto  matic switching of channels  and robot-like control equipment ��� the microwave system has a remarkably high reliability considering the complexity and sensitivity of its  operation.

The continent-spanning microwave network" built and operated by the Trans-Canada  Telephone system,, will be of-,  ficially inaugurated with an  historic hour-long CBC Dominion Day production featuring  live pick-ups from many parts  of Canada.  In itself the program will  demonstrate how the CBC's  network television service link  ing both CBC and private stations across the country will  now be able to knit the people  of Canada more closely together through the "picture window" of television.  The Trans-Canada Telephone  * System's "skyway" comprises  139 relay stations spread over  the 3,900 miles from Atlantic  to Pacific, with spur lines adding several hundred additional miles, and over 30 more relay points. Canadian Pacific  Communications and Canadian  National Telegraphs jointly pro  vide television transmission to  French network points in Que,-^  bee and to cities in southwestern Ontario.  Newfoundland will be linked to the microwave network  next year when Canadian National Telegraphs completes  the difficult 70-mrle hop across  storm-tossed Cabot Strait.

Decision to build the Trans-  Canada Telephone System's  coast-to-coast microwave chain  was first taken in order to provide the vital cross-country  voiceways required to keep  pace with and spur on the  growth of Canada. Thus, when  , the CBC, early in 1955 awarded the contract for providing  coast-to-coast television facilities, the huge project got rapidly underway.  Canada's first microwave inter city chain ��� the Bell Telephone Company of Canada's  Toronto-Ottawa-Montreal system opened in May, 1953 ������  and then-existing shorter microwave links in Ontario and  Quebec became part of the overall "skyway."  The $50,000,000 project was  a major engineering and construction undertaking that involved . pioneering in a real  sense. Pushing the chain of  microwave towers across Canada meant struggling through  some of the roughest terrain  and the severest weather this  immense country can offer.  Worts of all was the last link  now going into service ��� the  section through the mountains  of western Alberta and British  Columbia. Here 10 of the 13  relay stations are on mountain  tops the highest 6,700 feet  above sea level.

"Every purchase of an import at the ex-  -pense of its Canadian-made  equivalent is a blow struck at  a Canadian worker. Of course,  it never enters the Head of the  unthinking  buyer  that   he  or  she is hurting a fellow-Canadian, but obviously, a foreign article purchased means a comparable   Canadian   article  left  on   the   shelf.   Goods   left   on  , shelves   don't   swell   payrolls.  They do the reverse.

Twice in periods of crisis British Columbia came close to  joining its neighbor to the south, as a part of the United States  of America.'-'...  The first time, of course, was during the Gold Rush of  1858 when miners from the gold fields of California poured into  the wilderness by the thousands. They came into the fur trader's  domain, a territory without formal government, unmapped and  unsurveyed.'  Mining camp committees were elected; a private war was  tfought with the Indians in Fraser Canyon; there was strong talk  (of annexation by the United States.  Only resolute action by Governor James Douglas taken on  the sketchiest of legal grounds, impressed British sovereignity  upon the gold rush on the Lower Fraser.  The next crisis came ten years later, after the two colonies  of Vancouver Island and British Columbia were united?. The new  colony was deeply in debt, hard times gripped the country, trade  was at a standstill.  London was far away and colonial administrators had lit-  lte knowledge of, and apparently cared less about this far-flung  outpost of Empire.  San Francisco was the metropolis and the transportation  centre through which flowed all goods, news, travellers.  It is not surprising that a strong movement grew in British  Columbia for annexation to the more prosperous country to the  south.  This was no ''crackpot" movement, but one strongly backed by most of the merchants of the day, and by some of the  newspapers. Candidates openly supporting annexation were elected to the legislature, debate in session at one time teetered to  the brink of a formal resolution requesting union with United  .States.  Through the vision and fiery oratory of a. few men, British  Columbia was argued, persuaded, almost driven into Confederation, in 1871. "A Mari Usque Ad Mare."  As Canada approaches her 91st birthday, we look back  and salute the courage of those pioneers whose vision leaped  five mountain ranges, across thousands of miles of empty prairie  lands and another thousand miles of lakes and trees and wilderness. They looked across an empty,continent;.and decidecl to join  with Canada in the building of a hew n_titm;VV;:^?V;1f?v?'V'  We look forward on our country's 91st birthday. Forward  with confidence in Canada as a nation, strong enough to stand on  our own two feet and, we hope, wise enough to select and mingle  the best of our traditions into a distinctive Canadian way of life.

AND  m  IN PARLIAMENT  (By   William H.   Payne. *4J>.)  Everyone in the House of  Commons was. shocked by the  tragedy which occurred,on the  new Second 'Narrows Bridge.  The Prime __i_Tster received  word of. this disaster just moments before the adjournment  of the house and rose to make  the announcement and to extend the sympathies of the  government to those who, had  been bereaved; Immediately  the leader of the opposition  rose to add his sympathies. It  was a sad announcement to  all members from the west  coast and I join with the others  in offering my condolences. ;  Earlier in the evening Hon.  Donald Fleming, minister of  finance presented Canada's  budget. He gave us a crystal  clear picture of the economic  factors at play in Canada, a  sound and concise resume of  the business operations for the  last 12 months, and a forthright frank appraisal of our  business outlook for the coming year.  Mr. B^emmg^i^re��ses  one  with his. :.frai^ness, in his  breadth of vision, his dedication to the concept of "Canada  for Canadians."  It ,is not possible to review  in detail all that was covered  in the two hours of the budget  speech. Most of the highlights  will now have been covered  by press, radio and television.  I was particularly pleased with  the changes providing the exemption of prescription medicines, spectacles and diagnosis ���  -medical charges from taxable .  income.. This will certainly relieve a burden on the family  man and on those who are supr  porting chronic cases within  their family requiring expensive prescribed medicines. The  proposed changes in the gift  tax., exemption to permit the  transfer of up tb $10,000 between husband and -wife, ~ or  father and child, will correct  an injustice which has been  long in existence.  The budget message was one  of confidence in Canada's future, and dedicated to preserving Canada for Canadians.  I am expecting tenders to be  called for the construction of  the Gibsons breakwater undertaking in early July, and work  should be started shortly thereafter. I regret that the delay  developed through technical  .engineering problems, but  these have been ironed out, and  every effort is being8made to  speed the work.

Who haunted the barracks of  Sydney, Nova Scotia?  One of the most famous and  best attested of Canadian ghost  stories tells of an aopariitdon  seen by Capt. .Torn Sherbrooke  and Lt. George Wyriyard in the  baracks at Sydney, N-S. at 4 p.m.'  on pctober, 15th, 1785. The two  men saw a figure Wynyard recog--  nized as liis brother, Lt. John  Otto \Vynyard, then serving in  India.

These countries  are now beer-drinking countries,  with much lower alcoholism  rates (than before, the brief stated. The change was brought  about through taxation policy,  with consequent effects on the  relative prices of various aicc-  rolic beverages. "Belgium has  largest per capita consumption  of beer in the world, and the  alcoholism rate is about one per  cent of the adult population,  well below the- world average.,  and certainly below the rate in  Canada," the brief points out.  The brief outlines the contribution of the brewing industry  to the Canadian economy. It provides' employment to -more than  60,000 Canadians in all parts of  Canada, the brief states, and  uses one-third of all barley processed and sold in Canada. And  it. has contributed over a billion  tax dollars to federal and provincial governments sin-ce the  end of World War II. "Particularly at a time when the government is stressing the need for*  greater employment", it is worth  noting that beer, which is a bulky  Guaranteed  Watch &  Jewelry Repairs  .

On the score of beer prices,  the brewers point cut that since  1939, when the DBS Consumer  Price Index increased 98%, the  average price of a case of beer  increased only 56%. But most of  this increase is extra taxes, the  'brief states. Of the 56% price  increase the brewers themselves  received only 20% to take caie  of the considerable increase in  wage and materials costs.  The submission to the Finance  Minister asks for the rescinding  of the emergency tax placed on  beer at the time of Korea, and  the elimination of the present  practice of the brewer paying  sales tax on the beer excise duty  as well as on the sale price ��of  the beer. The brewers point out  that this tax on tax is not levied  on wine.
