Telephone Company has applied to the board  of transport commissioners for  Canada for ari increase in rates  to provide the revenue required for the payment of income?  taxes in full each year, instead  of on a deferred basis.  The company's application  is the latestv;move in the complicated discfission between the  federal government and certain utilities over haw income  taxes should be handled in determining rates.    ?? ?  Following are. examples of  present and proposed telephone  rates for Gibsons and Sechelt  with present rates in brackets:  Residence: ?��� Individual  (3.40) 3.90, two-party (2.70)  3.05, multi-party (2.30) 2.65;  Business: ��� Individual (5.60)  7.15, multiparty; (3.65) 4.70.

The request? rateah, would  taxes, but would also cover  the effect of a full year's wage  increases.  Of the total amount requested in the latest application,  $5,031,000 would come frorii  exchange service and $723,000  from long distance service.  Exchange service rentals  would go up an average of 17.6  percent mosithly, and.long distance fates would be increased  an average of 5.1 percent."  Basic long distance rates  would be increased by r five  cents on station^to-etation day  calls over 26 miles, and increases would vary on other  types of calls.  ,The application also proposes another ad j ustment in  the rate grouping plain, under  which rates are set according  to the number 'x of telephones  served by each exchange. Un  def the new plani Groups I and  II, which include from one to  500 and front 501 to 1000 telephones!, respectively would be  combined in a new Group II,  with the exception of 17 small  exchanges which do not have  continuous .24-hour) service,  increase total? annual ~revenue#--t_heie^:iJ-touad1 constitute a new  of tiie coiftpany by ^S^S-^OOO,    Group I.

Z( This;resulted, is additional revenue of approximatelyy $1,:  300,000, less than one third of  the revenue requested in an  amendment to the company's  application '6t last April 2.

Discussion centred on the  type of artists desired with deferment until such time as it  can be seen such bookings can  be arranged. In the meantime,  organization: work will be go- ���'*.'  ing ahead towards a?quick cam-?  paign for sighing up members.  One * important' fact pointed  out by Mrs. P. Poison, from  head office of Overture Concerts was ?that membership in ..  the Peninsula organization air.-.,  so gave the right to members  to. attend Overture Concert  events 'anywhere in Canada if  they happened to be in the  ci'ty where a certain event was  taking place. This gave "'the  holder of -- a membership a  chance to take?ih a specific concert in Vancouver if they so  chose and would not affect  any of the concerts held ori the  Sunshine Coast.

The B.C.  Telephone'. Company has now  followed suit.

Langdale was without power  for a period and longer periods without power were reported at Lorigview, Hillside  arid Williamson's Landing.  B.C.

Sechelt's first  settler now 95  Sechelt's first settler enjoyed a quiet birthday with his  family recently. Mr. T.J. Cook  who has now passed his 95th  birthday has had a varied career. He was at one time on the  household staff of the Empress  Eugenie of France and .sailed  the seven seas in his youth.  He settled in Sechelt in 1894  with his family and built a log  house on the property which  many years later became the  home of Bryce Fleck and is  now the home of Mr. and Mrs.  G. McDermid.     ���"**���  Mr. Cook was justice of the  peace for many years and is  still spoken of with affection  by old time Indians who remember him for his kindness  to them in the early days.

Black, provincial   secretary.  In his message, Mr. Black  say�� National Civil Derence  Day is designed to bring home  to people of Canada the great  gulf that exists between present conditions and those which  existed even a decade ago.  Pioneer forebears learned how  to protect themselves, their  families and possessions the  hard way, by bitter and often  tragic experience. Not so today, Mr. Black writes. Federal,  provincial and community Civil Defence organizations are  ready and eager to help, advise and train people in the  fundamentals; of self-preservation.  The day will be marked across Canada by various means  of putting across the Civil Defence idea and Mr. Black finishes by saying "you should  prepare yourself now or it will  be too late."

How about it Gibsons?  Gibsons area people must face a cold fact, one which  should not be allowed to exist. It concerns St. Mary's Hospital  at Garden Bay. * v  This hospital is seeking funds through a drive in the Sunshine Coast area. The hospital needs these funds because the government allowance and the finances collected from patients are  not enough for. improvements. ' ?  Why should Gibsons area people be informed of this?. Weil  the harsh fact is that so far Gibsons district people have contri-t  fouted $10. ?V  Hospital records show that two-thirds of the patients us-  sng the hospital so far this year .have come from the Gibsons  area. Sechelt has contributed $419. Halfmoon Bay has collected  $74. Roberts Creek has sent in $183. Gibsons has contfibuted..$10.  The,areas covered in the above are not confined to the  named place. For instance Sechelt includes Selma Park, West  ISechelt and other regions. ..  The hospital needs $3,000 for needed improvements; .  'Just what will Gibsons people do about this? ���;  The Coast News offers no advice but; hopes the hospital  campaign will be receiving cash or cheques- almost immediately  m letters bearing a Gibsons postmark.

Breakfast at 8 a.m.,  morning snack at 11 on deck,  lunch at 1, afternoon tea in our  deck chairs On the covered  promenade at 4 and dinner at 7.  Strange as it may seem we were  always ready for a meal.  There was a picture show every  day; games on? deck; music in  the lounge; tote on the ship's  run for the 24 hours ending noon  each day; horse races with  wooden horses moved ��� according  to the throw of the dice; bingo  each evening in the lounge and  dancing to the ship's orchestra  to finish up the day at midnight.  The trouble was that the ship's  clock was advanced an hour  each day at midnight and������-���'���12  o'clock "midnight became 1 a.m.,  which was quite too late for us  in spite of the fact that we'Had���  ���.the odd snooze during the day  in our  deck chairs; so  we left  the dancing severely .alone.

We had a little rough .  weather ��� and  some ';.��� fog" off the  coast of Newfoundland  but the.  following   days , were. calm ind  sunny until we reached.the Irish.

Then began Ithe fun. Everyone  seemed to be as anxious to leave  the  ship as they had been anxious to come aboard, at Montreal,  and with 750  passengers trying  to get through immigration and  customs  as  quickly   as possible  it was somewhat of a bedlam.  Once we had satisfied thie Immigration' Officer that we were  good Canadian citizens returning  ten-morally to the land of our  birth we did not have much  trouble locating our baggage  (luggage in. England), which was  all sorted out on the dock under  the alphabetical letter corresponding with one's surname.  Customs passed bur suit cases  without opening - them - and as  we had checked them through  to our hotel in London, we had  no more trouble with them? It  had been a arranged from the  ship for the boat train fbr London to leave at 2.30 and tickets  had been sold on the ship and  British Railways presumably advised as to the number of passengers travelling to London?  However, owing to the delay in  arrival at Liverpool the departure of "the train had been postponed to 5.30 for which the, British Railways could not be blamed.  British Railways were, however entirely responsible for the  inconvenience and bad-impression given tourists arriving in  Britain, many of them visiting  Britain for the first time, caused  by the fact that the train was  short one full coach of accommodating the passengers travelling to London. No first class  coach was available to meet this .  emergency and an empty dining  car was shunted in to take the  o v,e r f 1 ow.. Furthermore, the  coaches making up .the train  must' have dated back to tho  early. part of the - century and  the two dining cars on the train,  proved to be absolutely inadequate .to take -care of the de-s  . mand/ .���-'���   '���"'���'     .
