RAY  WHITING  RADIO-CONTROLLED  PHONE     O^fl     GIBS0NS  24 HR. COURTEOUS SERVICE  use increasiti  Circulation of books through  Gibsons Public library ia showing a substantial increase according to a report presented  at the library annual meeting  by N. Richard McKibbin, president. Here is his annual report  for 1958:  "In my report a year ago the  hope was expressed ��� that a successor might be found to take  ever the chairmanship of this  association. Since matters did  not work : out that "way I "find"  myself again reporting to you  on library affairs for the year'  1958.  "Continuing efficient and  loyal support on the part of  the volunteer workers is still  the main feature of our library  ���work, and tb? those, persons I  am very happy to expriess sincere appreciation on behalf of  ��11 library users.���_��������  The custodian'^ report indicates a substantial increase iii  book* circulation. Adult circulation is up 29.2% and juvenile up 22.8%; the proportion  of adult and juvenile circulation remains unchanged from  1957 at approximately 70%  and 30% respectively.  "Paid memberships show a  modest increase; in this connec-  tion some comment may be in  order concerning reader figures  mentioned by the custodian.  'Paid membership really represent family memberships,  and a rough" check indicates  that nearly 250 adult readers  and 165 juvenile readers are  actually using the library facilities ��� some more than  others of course. Thus a figure  Installation  byK  iwanis  Lt. Gov. Jerry Jardine of  North Vancouver installed the  new officers of the Sunshine  Coast Kiwanis Club at a ladies  night meeting this week. Installed were Jules Mainil as  president, Ed Johnson and  Keith.Wright as vice-presidents  Jim Stewart as treasurer and  Dick Kennett, secretary.  Lit. Gov. Jardine also inducted four new members, Fred  Feeney, Percy Lee, Dick Kennett and Don Hauka.  Danny Smith, 1958 president  before tunling the gavel over  to the new president gave a  good report of his year and Mr.  Mainil, the new president, in  accepting, outlined his aims for  1959.  Miss Carolyn Anderson provided the feature entertainment with her Scottish dances  and'sailors' hornpipe. She was;  exceptionally good. Eric Thomson, the Bard of Hopkins, piped  the haggis in and talked to it.  Gibsons   Legion  hall robbed  RCMP are checking a break-  in at the Canadian Le'g'lon  building in Gibsons sometime  Sunday night or early Monday,  morning. Main loss to the Le-'  gion is the damage caused by  the break-in which will approximate $400. . ,   ,  Several doors were' damaged?  considerably and some office  furnishings also suffered. The  ��� amount of money stolen was  small but considerable' quantities of cigarets were removed.  The safe was opened but practically nothing in it disturbed.  Hospital meeting  A preliminary meeting was  held   at   the   Village   Coffee  Shop, Sechelt, Jan. 14, for the  j purpose of forming a hospital  society1 for the Sunshine Coast  In attendance were representatives of various organizations and the Indian reserve.  Stewart Cameron, architect,  outlined plans and necessary  procedure towards obtaining  much-needed adequate hospital facilities^ '  Formation of the hojcpital  society is now Under way and  at the next meeting, Feb. 7, it  is hoped that even greater representation from all parts of  the Sunshine Coast will be in  evidence.  in excess of 400 users gives a  more realistic measure of the  library use. It is also worthy  of note that as many as 160  books have been issued in one  day.  "Both shelf space and building space have presented the  main problems encountered  this past year. We are again  indebted to Mi". J.L. Gordon  for making another island of  shelves; his continued interest  and practical help is much ap-  / precised. ?'V"  ��������� ��� A'���-^bfUilding extension was  mentioned in this report a year  ago but a number of factors  made it seem unlikely that  such a project could be carried  out in 1958. However, overtures.have already- been made  to Victoria this yeaf, and I  know that individual village  ���commissioners are quite impressed with the favorable  growth picture- which we are  now able to report.  "I would suggest that it  wouid lend weight to our requests for financial assistance  if we were able to show that -  a certain sum of money had  been raised from among library , users themselves, as a  tangible evidence of their own  effort to help themselves.  Therefore I recommend that a  committee be appointed by the  Library Board to take this  whole matter under consideration, and that steps be taken as  soon as possible to secure donations from our library users.  Then I feel sure that adequate  assistance will be more readily  obtainable elsewhere.  "The number of delinquent  books, especially in the juvenile section is creating, some  concern. While we must expect  a certain rate of loss or damage  1 lt'sSems that; many ;0_^thb_te'appearing to be delinquent are  due mainly to carelessness or  oversight.   Some procedure of  , follow up, other than on a per.  sonal basis by the custodians,  should be considered.  "Since the library opened  in June of 1953 over $2,700 has  been paid  out for new books.  "The treasurer's report  shows a very healthy position,  with funds on hand being largely available for children's  books, for which orders are  outstanding or will be' issued  before our next grants are payable in mid-summer. However,  many more books will accentuate the shelf-spaee problem.  "One final comment, concerning the suggestion that the  library remain open more often. We are already asking a  great deal of those volunteers  who work on the desk, some of  whom have been doing this  work, regularly since the library first opened. To ask more ���  of them is hardly reasonable  or fair. The answer to the sug  gestion seems therefore to be  in finding more volunteers will  ing to learn the desk routine��  and give the required time.  "Again may I thank all those  whose interest and active assistance have made it possible  to further develop this most  worthwhile community service.  Gibsons and-Area Volunteer  Firemen have discussed the  possibility of . installing an  alarm system for the area for  some time. Oh Saturday a siren  was tried at the Esso Station  and Super-Valu.  It as not too successful as it  could not be heard by the but-  side area; Another one will be  tried. It will probably be larger and have more power.  , Please make your fire protection cheques payable to the  Gibsons and Area Volunteer  Fire department, Box 8, Gibsons? or pay in person "to A.  Crowhurst of Totem Realty or  R. Wilson at Gibsons Building  Supplies.  The Gibsons and Area Volunteer Fire department thanks  the Howe Sound Women's Institute for its generous donation.

First outing  in 17 years  . Steve Johnson, who has  spent the past 50 years up Jervis Inlet, came down to Pender Harbour last weekend, the  first time he has been away  from the head of Jervis for 17  years.  Most of his life he has spent  logging and trapping, around  his home. He and his brother,  Jud, of Saltery Bay arrived  here at the beginning of the  century and both stayed on.  Jud settled ih Blind Bay where  he married and raised a large  family. Steve chose Jervis Inlet for his home base tout remained single.  Both brothers loved the  great outdoors and spent many  months roaming over the moun  tains, hunting or trapping or  prospecting, and often just  roaming for the love of it.

Liberal partyi said  when, he addressed the Kiwanis club at its Tuesday night  meeting of last week.  Mr. Laing complained the  people of the province were  not. getting the best possible  use out of their Public Utilities  commission. He claimed power  complaints to PUC had been  turned over to the companies  concerned and not explored by  PUC?. He also arg-ued PUC had  no control of power spheres of  influence.  Summarizing his remarks on  the power situation in British  Columbia Mr.v Laing said "a  good job has not been dq>ne  and we have no time to lose.  We should move with the best  possible information available  and we as taxpayers should insist there be no waste like we  have today."  He hoped there would be an  intensive study into the power  situation. There should be more  competition with the rest of  Canada. Mr. Laing was introduced by Jules Mainil. president and thanked by Ted Henniker.  Opening his remarks Mr.  Lai^ng reviewed power rates  in other parts* of Canada and  said   a   $9.60   B.C.  residential  New committee  takes over park  FIRE SERVICES L.A.

Control pf Gibsons area Centennial project, the park on  Sechelt Highway has passed  from the Centennial committee  of last year to a committee organized from". representatives  of numerous organizations in  the district.  The transfer of control occurred at a meeting attended  by representatives of the 20  or more organizations at a  meeting in Legion hall. W.I.  McAfee, Centennial committee  chairman presided and before  the meeting ended he found  himself as continuing chairman  of the new committee.  Rev. D. Donaldson was elected vice-president and Reg  Adams, secretary - treasurer*.  Executive members will include Frank Bailey, Ed Johnson, A.H. Pay, Fred Feeney,  H.   Barendregt,   Ray   Rhodes,  Senior citizens  meeting Monday  A meeting of the Senior  Citizens' Association of British  Columbia will be held on Mon.  Feb. 2 at 2 p.m. in the United  Church Hall.

REt> CROSS MEETING  Gibsons-Port Mellon Red  Cross branch will hold its annual meeting this coming Saturday afternoon in the Coast  News office at which time re-,  ports on the year's activities  will be received and officers  elected for the year. The meeting will be held at 2 p.m.  Mrs. J.  Fitchett and  Mrs. W.  Duncan.

C.P. Ballentine who has  done considerable work on the  park project as a member of  the Centennial committee declared erection of a Fair building on the property as soon as  possible was a must. He also  .made the suggestion a curling  rink could be established there.  Jules Mainil urged that before  any move towards building was  made that the grounds be plotted for the best use and that  buildings befitting the park  should be built.  Mr. McAfee told how he and  Mr. Ballentine visited Victoria  last summer and obtained  wholehearted support for the  project from various, government departments. As a result  they secured the clearing of the  road from the highway to  Reid Rd., the length of the  park and that the cost of fencing material will likely come  from the government.  ave: voice:  H  Will sing  I  Gibsons church choirs are  planning to sing the sacred  cantata Olivet to Calvary for  the Easter season. Any singers  who would like to take part in  this event, particularly. tenors,  are urged to attend practice at  their nearest church, Port Mellon of Wednesdays, St. Bartholomew's, Gibsons, on Thursdays  and Gibson Memorial United  Church on Friday evenings at  8 p.m.  There will be combined  practices later in the season  when the choirs have mastered  the cantata at their >own practices.  News by William H. Payne-  Conservative member for this  Coast . Capilano constituency  from Ottawa, it is expected the;  building will be completely  erected by early fall months.  It is understood the RCMP  have also purchased land at  Sechelt for construction hi  time of a Mountie headquarters there.  bill would in Calgary cost $5.25  Edmonton, $4.30; Toronto $4.11  Winnipeg $4.40, Ottawa $2.73,  and Tacoma in Washingtom  state $3.70.  Commenting on the expanding need for power Mr. Laing  reviewed what had happened  in the United States since the  days of President Roosevelt  and how cheap power had revolutionized northwest United  States. It was necessary that  rates come down if British Columbia was to be indui-itrialized  arid if we wanted to attract industry something would have  '  to be done about it.  Mr. Laing'said General MC'  NaugMon, International Power  CcTOmissibri" chairman; was'of  the opinion the U.S. would  sign a power document concerning British Columbia  which would be favorable to  Canada. An international grid  system would enable B.C. to  get cheap power and such a  system would do away with  having to mov'e power all the  way from the Kootenayra to the  coastline.  It was necessary that "we  should obtain the best advice  as to why we are in the position of being in a high power  potential area and paying high  rates." It was at this point thai-  Mr. Laing dwelt upon the position of the 'PUC in the power  picture.  What the province needs, he  said, is "a powerful PUC, acting without political" interference, conversant with its  duties both to the public and  the* utilities, and fully provided  with the competent staff it  requires.  The commission is understaffed; it has failed to initiate  fair-rate inquiries; it 'fails to  control areas of influence between utilities; and instead of  acting on specific complaints  it has referred them to the  utility concerned.  "Job of a public utility commission is to s,ee rates ensure  capacity sufficient to meet demand and are at all times reasonable for consumers," he  said.  To be efficient as a public  safeguard, Mr. Laing said, it is  implicit the PUC must have a.  competent staff in engineering, accounting and legal practice "at least equivalent in  ability to those employed by  the utility appearing before it."  "Only a foolish person would  say this condition exists in our  own  PUC," he added.  "The act provides for initiation of inquiries as to fair  rates by the PUC itself, yet  they have never initiated such  an inquiry ��� they await rate  applications."  flood.  so ease rioo  As a result of conversations  held by Mrs. Christine Johnston, Village Council chairman,  with Highways Minister Gaglardi. the department of highways has started an improvement program on the drainage  system on the main highway  through Sechelt.  This is expected to alleviate  the serious flood conditions  prevalent after- each heavy  rainstorm. It  Mjetus  2    Coast News. Jan.  29, 1959.  Life's Darkest Moment  .

It is the publication of a history. It is called  Port Mellon, B.C.; Being an Account of its First Fifty Years., by  W.W. Brown and J.B. Stewart. Mr. Brown is usually called Wal-  ly and Mr. Stewart is better known as Barry. Both are part of  the administrative force at Port Mellon.' (  The book, published by Canadian Forest Products is being  distributed by the Port Mellon Community association and copies  'can be obtained with the aid of a half-dollar.  In the introduction of the book, which contains more than  30 illustrations the authors explain that "no person has lived in  Port Mellon through all its first fifty years. No baron of the paper  industry has risen from the ranks here to give 4ustre and publicity to its name. Yet it has survived and one wonders what qual:  ��ties it possesses to attract men and money as it has.  "A narrow awkward shelf of gravelly.xland; a small stream  by seasons tempestuous then a trickle; not fine timber, because  the best was gone before the pulpmill was built; a view of rocky  grandeur ��� splendid but of no marketable value. For most of  its fifty years its only possession of value has been a pulpmill  .��� of sorts. Generations have added to it, subtracted from it,  driven and cajoled it. But surely none have shown more faith,  enterprise and magnificent though displaced optimism, than its  original founders. Without them there would probably be nothing here. Little of the mill now resembles the one they built.  It is a memorial to them."  It would appear the authors of the history lived close to  the material they wrote. It is a history which should be on the  bookshelf of all homes in this area^ and in the hands of public  institutions who deal with learning.1 '  news items  BY MRS. A.A. FRENCH  Better support required  Speaking to the Board of Trade of Gibsons and area at its  annual meeting recently, W.B. Boucher of Granthams Landing  advised the members to consider the number of trades licenses  issued in Gibsons through the Municipal Hall.  He said he found it unbelieveable that the board had only  about 30 members when one considered the fact there were 145  trades licenses issued in Gibsons alone.  Mr. Boucher expressed the opinion a small town board  of trade was a great institution. In the small town every business  man knew every-other businessman and a board meeting was,  the place where these businessmen should congregate to express  their views. i "-������'-���.'  The argument Mr. Boucher has presented is irrefutable  where businessmen are concerned. The board of trade is their  proper forum and it should be used by them. The old story about  the father and the sons and the bundle of sticks holds good in  this case. The sons could break the individual sticks but could-  not budge the bundle. The moral is simple ��� united you stand,  divided.you fall.  How about it businessmen? Join -#_e board of trade. Any  person in business for himself is a businessman, so do not get  the idea merchants with stores are the only businessmen.  Disproportional an apt word  Discovered two gems of descriptive material worthy of  a high place in the vocabulary. One concerns modern art and the  writer in poetic mood wrote: "I fail to discern the 'mys��iqu6' of  disprcportional representation in a Picasso freak."  Disproportional representation. How neat!  Descending upon modern music and wincing at the caca-  phony of a certain composer he asked: "Should I deem the jay's  squawk better than a robin's arietta?" Concise, indeed and if you  do not know what an ariettaf is, it is a short aria.  Ode to the Sun  O Sun! Why so glum?

Letters to the editor  Editor, On' re-reading my  Coast News which I have enjoyed very much, especially  your reports of the concerts  and many things, also the travel letters of Messrs. Thomson  and Humphries, I noticed in  the Dec. 25 issue a report of the  W.A. and once more I am requesting that a note be made  of this item that those who  send the report giving the full  name of tlie church, do it correctly. It is not the Gibsons  Village Memorial church but  was named for Mr. Gibson who  founded the church in his home  and built the first church.  If this cannot be done, the  name should be changed and  his photo removed from the  front of the church.  I realize this mistake never  occurred while our town was  called Gibsons Landing. It  came with the- confusion of it  being changed  to Gibsons,   or  as I have said and written before just put it in as Gibsons  United Church. It is that at all  events. I am sure the attention  of those responsible, need only  be called to this matter for it  to be rectified. '  The Wilson Creek people  had the same trouble for years,  but they've finally won out.  Wilson Creek not Wilson's. It  doesn't belong to the Wilsons  but was named in their honor,  or such I understand was the  case. I've never yet heard or  seen in print, Chowns or Rob-  sons or any memorial church  here, so we at Gibsons do not  -wish to be behind in any way.  I'm surely delighted at the  way the town revived after  the terrible fire and inconveniences re Black Ball Ferry.  Congratulations to any and all  who have done their share and  I know yours would be a "big"  share.  Elchel  A. Bushfield.  Square dance  quite popular  Families are turning out in  larger numbers to swing and  dos-a-dos at the: Monday evening  Square Danice at Roberts Creek.  January 19 saw the best turnout yet in the recently begun  elasises, with four squares dancing and' several >shyer groups  watching.  One of the main points of this  group is that families, from Dad  on down to small people, are  welcome. Square-dancing is a  good mixer and the classes are1  proving that there i& still such a  thing as family fun. If you want  to be more ex'chDsive you can  turn up to the later group, dancing between nine and ten o'clock.  The dance group meets each  Monday night, beginning at 7  o'clock, in the Roberts Creek  Community   Hall.   Morris   Hem-  Bud Blatchford, both of them  excellent teachers and callers.  Come on out, whether you are  novice or square dance fan. You  will be welcome.  PENDER  HARBOUR  By JUDITH FLETCHER  Bud Steel of Vancouver  spent a few days fishing in  Pender Harbour during the  week.  Gordon McNeil of Nanaimo  has been in Garden Bay for  the past week.  Bud Insley of the Garden  Bay Boat Works, who was  burned out last fall, has started rebuilding his shipyard  again.

Whether this is a tall tale or a true one, we do know  that the $ sign was in use in the United Stages before the  introdi-ction of federal currency and before our own decimal  monetary system began in 1853.  But more interesting to most of us than the $ sign itself,  are the figures that come after it, especially if those figures  are in1 a savings acciount passbook from the Bank of Montreal.  It's quite a thrill to /watch them grow and grow as we save  regularly. Interest payments of two. and three-quarters per cent  also help to swell the amount.  It makes sense to save regularly at the B of M and it  makes for success in.life, too.  To start your own "success fund", visit the Gibsons  torantfh of the Bank of Montreal soon.

Four  years ago, Overture Concerts  presented a single series in Nelson, B.C., to an audience of 400.  Three years ago, Overture Concerts were heard in eight British  Columbia (communities ��� a total  of 26 concerts with an audience  of just over 2,500. Last year,  nearly 8,000 Overture concert  subscribers attended 63 concerts  in seventeen communities . in  three Provinces, and this season  the figures have doubled again,  with almost 18,000 listeners to  120 concerts in thirty-three Overture towns and cities spreading  across 2,500 miles and the five  Canadian Provinces of British.  Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario.  It is most apparent that Overture has emerged as a pioneer  in concert management, willing  to present live musilc by top artists in many communities that  he off off the traditional concert  circuits. For instance, this year,  concerts have been scheduled in  towns such as Flin Flon, Manitoba ��� a mining' town of* 13,000  population, 600 miles due north  oi Winnipeg and in Bralorne,  British Columbia, a tiny goldmine settlement 250 miles north  of Vancouver, with a population  of only 700 people. This season  also witnessed the opening up of  several communities: in the far  Canadian north, including Peace  River, Alberta, Dawson Creek.  British Columbia (mile Zero on  the Alaska Highway), and Fort  St. John, British Columbia. The  Chanticleers (well-known male  vocal quartet) recently opened  the season for each of these three  towns, and in spite of temperature of 25 below and highways  frozen solid for hundreds of  miles the four singers and their  accompanist reported a tremendous enthusiasm in these northern communities.  ��� Population or the size of the  potential audience has not necessarily been the criterion in organizing Overture Concert associations. Some of the towns aff iliat-  with Overture may be difficult  to find on the map but they all  have one element in common:  an enthusiasm and; determination  to bring in live music on a  regular organized basis.cThe result of this kind of pioneering  in the  concert world has  been  the creating of new circuits for  touring artists as more~ahd more  growing towns in the Canadian  west; affiliate themselves with a  dynamic and vital young concert  organization.  Nor are all of Overture's "organized audience" co_amunities  small. The Overture concert system ha sbeen adopted by many  large cities both in British C?o-  lumbia and on the prairies, hast  season New Westminster, British  Columbia, was the largest Overture Association with over 1200  member, bringing in such artists  as Igor Gk>rin and Nadine Conner. . New Westminster is still one  of the major Overture groups  (and presented; Isaac Stem this  season . . . ) but dairing the year  several substantial communities  Were added to the Overture  roster. Furthest east of these is'  the association in the twin-cities  of Port Arthur-Fort William, Ontario. With over 1000 members  this new association is1 presenting a five concert series including such noted artists as Jorge  Bolet, Robert McFerrin and Rug-  giero Ricci. Other large associations this season have been developed in Lethhridge, Moose Jav  and West Vancouver. West Ven-  couver will present Alexander  Bk-ailowsky and the Roger Wagner Chorale; Lethbridge has  scheduled Anna Russell and  Moose Jaw is bringing iji. the  great French pianist ^hillipe  Entremont as part of a star-studded first season series. Nor are  the 'name' artists only accessible  to the biggest cities. Camrose,  Alberta ��� a town of only 5,000,  sixty miles' from Edmonton ���  has over 750 members and is presenting the great Canadian contralto, Maureen Forrester.  One reason for the remarkable  growth of Overture is the fact  that its executive director and  founder, George Zukerman* is  also a well-known musician. Mr.  Zukerman is a prominent Vancouver instrumentalist, principal  bassoonist of the Vancouver Symphony and the CBC radio orchestra in that city, and also  founder andi director of the  woodwiftd ensemble the Cassenti  "Players. It was as a performer  that Mr. Zukerman first sensed  the tremendous untapped audience potential and from this  realization he determined to  create a Canadian management  which could help fill this gap.  Four years of perseverance has  developed the network of thirty-  three communities under the  Overture aegis. Mr. Zukerman  himself has been involved in  most of the organizational  ground-work and in each community there is a local committee which, with Overture's active  assistance, conducts a membership campaign prior to the season's start. Artists are chosen  by the local committee on  the  basis of the results of the membership drive and Overture has  in this Way, been able to negotiate for some of the top name  artists on the 'concert stage today. "We do not represent any  pa^cular artists," explained Mr.  Zii_kerman. "Rather we try to  represent our communities to  the artists and their managements." In order to have a con-  stmt list of artists available to  the Overture Associations, Mr.  Zukerman maintains active contact -with all the major concert  managements on this continent.  Mr. Zukerman believes that  there. is a still larger audience  potential in western Canada. He  describes the rapid growth of  Overture as "wonderfully gratifying." This season, Overture presented more than..40 different'  artists or ensembles, through  seventeen, managements. 'The  managements fecpg-use the all  important necessity of developing new audiences for live  music," commented Mr, Zukerman, "and as a result, we have  had wonderful cooperation on all  sides. We are pleased that the  managements have accepted us1  as a major concert outlet ih the  Canadian west and hope to' con-  4 * Coast News, Jan_. 29, 1959.  ��� I   ������"   ���      ��� ���-������������������������-i-Wj���j|i    -i;i lOlwt���H   bfai'-fa ������-���������---���  tinue to justt^thie'ti'fist that has  been placed in us by our communities as well as by the artists  and their manager.s.
