Volume 12, Number 2, January 8.1959.  RAY  WHITING  RADIO-CONTROLLED  PHONE      9^0     GIBS0NS  24 HR. COURTEOUS SERVICE  At a Monday night meeting  in the Fire Hall the firemen  held their annual election of  officers.  Elected were: W. Scott, fire  chief; F. Feeney, assistant chief  R. Wilson, captain; E. Kul-  lander, lieut.; N. MacKay,  chairman and R. Malyea, secretary.  Mr. Feeney, retiring fire  chief, has stepped down to the  assistant chief's job because he  is finding his work with the  phone company) and that of  fire chief too heavy, He asked  to be relieved of the top position.  Last week's cold snap kept  firemen busy keeping fire  fighting equipment from freezing. They worked late nights  trying to have trucks and  pumps ready for immediate operation. A frozen motor or  pump is of no use at a fire.  One heater failed at No. 2 hall  causing damage to a pump motor. This points to the need of  a good hall, properly heated to  house area trucks and equipment. No frost damage was re-  Accident prevention  plan to help hospita  An accident prevention program designed to provide some  tangible appreciation to employees -rd to provide a method whv__\.by Canadian Forest  ���Products Port Mellon Mill  management on behalf of its  employees will make a substantial contribution to St. Mary's  hospital at Garden Bay, was inaugurated Jan. 1. It will cover  a six month period as a start.  The company will, on behalf  of the plant employees, pay  to the winning team for presentation to St. Mary's Hospital, the sum of money, the  amount of which will be determined' by the total points accumulated by the winning  team during the six month per-  ^ iod on the basis of 50c per  �� point.  The company will provide a  banquet for the members of  the winning team and the team  captains of the losing teams.  The captain of the winning  team will make the presentation to representatives of St.  Mary's Hospital at this ban-  buet.    . -.- ���������������-.:���. ������<- ..���....,,;���.....  There will also be awards of  up to $50 in value to the winning team each, month of the  competition.  Children of employees in  high school grades 7 to 9 inclusive and 10 to 12 inclusive  are to be invited to submit an  essay on or before May 15, on  the subject "Why St. Mary's  Hospital is important to our  community."  A panel of judges from the  P.R.  woman  is  B.C.  winner  Mrs. Svend Neilson, a home-  maker from Westview. B.C.  will uphold the culinary skill  of the province at a grand Bake-  off in Toronto on January 13.  Mrs. Neilson is one of the top  ten winners of this country's  larest cooking contest, the  $25,000 Domestic Bakefest,  sponsored by Canada Packers  Limited.  Born and educated in England, Mrs. Neilson's interest in  cooking was stimulated by her  mother-in-law and while living  in Denmark she took a night  school course in cooking. Her  winning Bakefest entry,, luscious vanilla slices, is one of  her favorite Danish recipies.  Wife of an engineer with the  Powell River Pulp. and Paper  Company, Mrs. Neilson freely  confesses that she does all her  own baking, including bread.  "I've only bought cookies once  since I've been in Canada." she  said during an interview.  Big display  of machinery  More than 65 machinery and  supply companies will team up  next month to woo prospective  customers at B.C.'s biggest annual convention.  The setting will be the 16th  annual meeting of the Truck  Loggers' Association in Hotel  Vancouver January 14, 15 and  16 which some 1500 loggers  and their guests are expected  to attend. ���  The machinery and supplies  group committee, headed by  G.O. (Gerry) Porter i�� planning  a big program of entertainment  and more than 50 displays of  up - to - the - minute equipment  used in modern logging operations.  area is to judge the essays.  The winner in each category  is to receive a watch as a prize.  Employees of the mill will  be organized into nine teams  which will cover the 227 men  who work in the mill proper.  The number of members in the  teams will vary but this has  been equalized by the smaller  teams obtaining double points  either way, lose or win.  This accident prevention program recognizes some form of  incentive is desirable in order  to achieve the improved safety  record desired by union and  management in this operation.  Management of the mill believe the men will have a keener incentive to avoid mishaps  through" their desire to do all  they can to assist St. Mary's  hospital obtain the largest sum  of money possible.  There will be nine teams  from Team A to Team I representing various sections of the  plant. Largest team is from  the recovery and steam plant.  There are four shift group  - teams .with the. remaining four  made up from other departments. Salaried personnel are  not members of the teams and  have no part in the competition except for supervisors directly connected with team  meetings.  Team meetings will be held  monthly where the safety  theme will be the predominant  subject. Team captains will  meet monthly to line up material for the team meeting  and discuss with; other captains best possible methods.  Teams have varied ways in  which to accumulate points  and judging from past competitions there should be some  keen rivalry between teams in  this competition. There are  also ways in which, they can  lose points and it will be on  this phase of the program that  efforts will be directed. To  show how stringent the regulations are, if a team member is  involved in an off-the-job traffic accident causing any loss oi  time from has job, the team  loses so many, points.  Buck derby  winners named  Top two winners in the Buck  Deer derby of Gibsons Rod  and Gun club bagged their trophies in the Langdale area  which up to recent times had  been a poor hunting area.  Austin Moorcroft of Gibsons  bagged a buck'with a 127%  inch antler. He was first and  the spread has been sent to  CBC because it is what is termed trophy size. Second was  Graham McLean of Granthams  with HO1/^ inches. Third was  N. Wolansky with 100% inches  These were measured by Boone  and Crockett rules.  Officials of the club were  surprised when the top entries  came from Langdale area because game had been frighten  ed from that.area in the past  by hounds running loose. Apparently that situation has been  cleared up and game has returned to the area.  POLAR CLUB  Soames Point first Polar  Club plunged into the briny  Jan. 1 and the cherubs aged  from 11 to 14. found the water  cool. First in was Peter Mason  and longest in was Penny Feeney. Among others who made  the plunge were Arlene Mason  and Richard Kruse.  ported from No. 1 hall in Gibsons.  Firemen responded to four  calls in December, two of  which were chimney fires, one  a fire on a dredge at Gibsons  wharf. On Dec. 27. firemen  were called for the fourth  time, a chimney fire at the  Connor home at Roberts Creek  Firemen stood by but were  unable to proceed to the fire  as it was far beyond the area  within which they are permitted to operate. Several firemen went in their own cars  and reported back everything  was under control and there  was no need for further assis  tance.  For. those. who are not familiar with the boundaries, the  Gibsons Volunteer Fire Services will attend fire calls within  the following area: North and  south boundaries from the  North and Mountain roads to .  the waterfront; east and west  boundaries from the east end  of Langdale Subdivision to Seaview Cemetery. This will include all of Gower Point area  up to the end of Gower Point  Road.  At 7 p.m. Jan. 2, firemen  and equipment rushed from  No. 1 and No. 2 halls in answer  to a fire call from the Gold-  heart place in the Bay area.  The fire was confined to under  the house and caused by efforts  to thaw frozen pipes. Firemen  reported no damage.  At 8.15 p.m. Jan.. 5, firemen  were called to stand by a chimney fire at a duplex owned by  Mr. IPage in the Bay area.  Park future  for committee  A centennial committee  meeting for the, purpose.of organizing a continuing committee to take over the Centennial  Park and the work connected  with it, will be held Wed., Jan.  14 at 8 p.m. in the Legion Hall.  At a December meeting preliminary work was started to  get a continuing committee organized. It is hoped to have  representatives of every public organization on the new  committee so that the fullest  and widest co-operation possible will be available for continuance of work to push ahead  the project, Centennial Park,  which was started during Centennial Year.  ? The annual general  meeing and election of officers of Gibsons and Area  ^Volunteer Fire Dept. will  be held on. Sat., Jan. 31 at  8 p.m. in the School Hall.  All those who are interested in fire protection for  the area are urged to attend.  ayment of  taxes good  flax collection in the Village of Gibsons continue at a  high level, Robert Burns, village clerk reported to council  at'the first meeting of the new  ���council Monday night. Collections for last year totalled 92.6  percent, which Mr. Burns said  was as good as for any recent  year.  He also announced that there  were 32 building permits issued  during the year valued at  $87,370, a slight drop from the  previous year.  A.H. Pay and Frank Hicks,  newly-elected by acclamation  to| the council were sworn in  by Clerk Robert Burns. As a  result of new faces of Mr. Pay  and Mr. Hicks on council, committee chairmen were re-aligned with Mr. Hicks taking over  the water department and Mr.  Pay roads, parks and beaches.  Commissioner H. Wilson retains his finance committee  post and Mr. Adams, the fire  arid health post. Mr. Pay will  also be the commission representative on the new committee to take over the Centennial  Park project.  Accounts, few ih number, totalled $20.18 and were ordered  paid.  Commissioner Adams reported he found the fire department records in fine shape and  he thought they deserve great  credit for the work they do.  The clerk was ordered to  purchase 20 maps of the village so they will be obtainable  by persons deteiring to purchase one.  Mr. Burns also delivered his  annual report to the commission and the Coast News will  publish it next week.

Kennett  A flurry of hail and snow, bright clearing skies, and plung  ing temperatures ushered the New Year into being. Temperatures  skidded in most places to a low of 13 degrees, but those residing  on the shores of Howe (Sound felt it far colder as bitter northerly  winds spilled dry Arctic air down mainland inlets from the interior.  Taking a last look at 1958 showed December with a heavy  snowfall three times normal figures, otherwise milder than usual,  but with normal rainfall.  Looking at the figures for all of the old year, we find  higher than normal rainfall due to the overly wet January, half  the normal snowfall, half the normal days with frost, and last  but not least, the hottest temperature ever recorded as well as no  rainfall for the month of July.  These are the recorded figures both for December 1958  as well as the annual figures for good old 1958.  Dec.  '58       Norm.

STEVEN  FUCHS  th  .  otner s  March  Si  esps young oteven  Another step into the future  is taken by happy Steven Fuchs  of Jaffray, B.C. Steve lost his  right leg and arm in a train accident when he was four and  since that time he has worn  an artificial leg.  Thanks to the Kinsmen sponsored Mothers' March, Steve  had a new artificial leg fitted  and re-amputation of tlie arm  stump to permit fitting of an  artificial arm soon. Steve is  another of the 500 disabled  persons helped last year by  Mothers'  March support.  Dr. J.F. McCreary, chief  pediatrician for the Health  Centre for Children, and an  advisor to the fund, reported  that 2,707 speech and hearing  consultations were also sponsored by the fund. In addition,  the Kin mobile hearing clinic  ees  back  b  in ousmess  Howe Sound variety store on  Marine Drive in Gibsons has  changed hands and has been  taken over by its previous owners, Percy and Marion Lee.  The announcement of the  change was made by Wynne  Stewart who ' purchased the  business in March 1952 from  the Lees. Mrs. Stewart has operated the business since then  and was negotiating with the  Lees when the Bal Block fire  forced a halt.  Re-opening after the fire,  Mrs. Stewart purchased new  stock and brought the business  back to its previous state and  sale negotiations were resumed  The Lees who operated the  original store in 1948 have  been in the variety store business since 1929. They operated three stores in Vancouver  at one time but now have tw/  in the Vancouver area and one  in Gibsons.  Mr. Lee who has lived in  British Columbia for the last  40 years is of the opinion this  year should be a good one for  business and barring the un-  forseen we should be past the  depression period. He regards  the future of the Sunshine  Coast area with such assurance  that he has moved to Gibsons.  The Lees reside in the Palmer  block on Marine Drive.  is now touring the province.  It is believed today that very:  few children are born completely deaf and if work can  be started early enough young  children may be taught to  speak before hearing loss is  complete or past help.  The drive for funds to carry  on this work was launched on  Jan. 2 and will climax with  the Mothers' March on Jan. 31.  The province-wide objective  this -year is $275,000, and in  this area the Sechelt and Gibsons Clubs hope to go over the  $2,000 mark set last  year.  Although all of the funds  are sent to the central B.C.  Child Care and Polio Fund,  each case is considered very  carefully by the board and its  advisors, and all of the money  collected on the Peninsula last  year will just about equal that  amount returned by the fund  for work in this area through  the local Kinsmen Child Care  chairman.  The help, both financial and  on case work given to the area  through this fund certainly, encourages the support required  to carry on in the coming year.  Twenty thousand Marching  Mothers make this program  possible and all collecting is  done voluntarily by them, and  organized by the members of  over 60 Kinsmen Clubs in the  province as a district project,  so that more of your dollar  may go direct to the polio and  child care program and less  to overhead   and expenses.  MERCHANTS TO MEET  The annual general meeting  of the Merchants Credit Association of the Sunshine Coast  will be held Wed., Jan. 14 at  the Banquet room. Peninsula  Hotel, 7 p.m.  The order of business will be  the regular order required at  the annual general meeting.

Praise for drivers  From police reports covering the Christmas and New  Year's holidays, it is interesting to note that the Sunshine Coast  "was singularly free from serious traffic accidents over this traditionally difficult period.  It is noteworthy that accidents, such as they were, were  of a more or less minor nature and drinking driving offences  were a nonentity.  Drivers of the Sunshine Coast are to be commended for  the exercising of due care, caution and attention during a period  when city people drive with fear and trepidation ��� always with  an eye to the ether fellow. ��� D-A.D.  Merchants are alert  An outstanding feature of the recent short-lived  ferry strike was the fact that the merchants of the Sunshine  Coast exerted every effort to ensure the minimum of inconvenience-to their customers.  While those responsible for the calling of the strike were  apparently unconcerned with the effect such an occurence would  have on practically isolated communities such as ours, it is well  that we have public-minded citizens who think otherwise.  At considerable expense, the merchants, in conjunction  with the local transport operators, engaged scows to ferry the  heavy Christmas freight across the Sound, thereby assuring that  there would be no lack of necessory commodities during the holiday season.  . It is difficult to guess what hardships might have been involved had good sense not prevailed on the part of the union and  management of the ferries,but at least a word of praise is due  the merchants and transport operators for their combined efforts  on behalf of the community. ��� D.A.D.  Failure has its place  The desire to "break records" is commendable but the  aim to make it permanently progressive is unreasonable. Some  minds cannot bear to think a present accomplishment is a few  percentage points below the previous figure. The glitter of, to  use today's redundant term "an all-time record" is apparently  overwhelming.  By the way. just what is the difference between a record  and an all-time record. People not submerged beneath modern  jargon regard a record as being the ultimate, xne term --aii-time  record." makes the writer of it feel more important.  All of the above is prompted by the remark that classroom  failures should be accepted as a part of growing up. University  of Michigan professor of education Stanley E. Diamond said that  ahd added all children fail at times. They lose at games; they do  not do arithmetic problems correctly; another child reads better,  jumps better, wears better clothes. It is probably impossible to  mature in our society without experiencing failure. The good is  not in the failure but in the overcoming of failure, the professo-  argues. ,   '  His remarks apply to the adult world too.

Letters to the editor  Editor: Since the inception  of the S.P.C.A. in this district  about a y ear ago we have been  called upon to do many and  varied types of work in the  animal world. Probably the  most difficult thing of all is to  find suitable homes for dogs  and cats ���- some of which are  strays ��� some brought into the  district by visitors and conveniently left behind.  We have had many calls  from all parts of the Peninsula  and ha-^e been able to find  good homes for almost all of  these animals. This work has  been greatly facilitated by the  kindly consideration and gracious help given by the Coast  News in donating valuable  space and we are indeed most  grateful for such splendid cooperation.

Editor: In your last issue the  information is published that  Norman G.B. Burley of Sechelt has been appointed a stipendiary magistrate. The reason; "Is to have a magistrate  available whenever the regular magistrate is not available."  This is quite amusing.  From June 1955 to May 1958  an experienced magistrate was  available but how often was  he asked to act? It is true he  did not receive the additional  authority required under the  Criminal Code when it came  into effect on April 1, 1955  but he could have done at  least 80% of the regular work  required of a magistrate.  Why this sudden evidence of  interest in the administration  of the law on the Sechelt Peninsula? Did it take the attorney  general almost three years to  make up his mind this was a  necessary part of law administration for the residents of the  Sechelt Peninsula? Or is there  an election, in view and a possible new source of help by  doing this? Many who helped  the^Social Credit party in the  last' election with both time  and money will be missing in  the next election so possibly  it is wisdom to start early to  provide for it.  <In. June 1957 the attorney-  general was sent resolutions  that had been passed by a meet  ing of the merchants, asking  for a better Small Debts Court  act. As'., no acknowledgment  was received within a reasonable time a reply was requested. The closing paragraph says  "These will receive consideration." His letter of June 27.  .The session came and went  in ?1958 but" not one word of  change^ in? the. Act. What, conclusion can ypu come to? Either  he is not a man of his wordier  he did give the resolutions consideration and decided in favor of" the deadibeats and the  unscrupulous _ debtors. There  can be no other deductions.
