RAY  WHITING  RADIO-CONTROLLED  PHONE     OCA     GIBSONS  24 HE. COURTEOUS SERVICE  down to  banquet  The fifth annual Sechelt  Peninsula Rod & Gun Club  banquet and dance was held  in Roberts Creek Hall Saturday evening, Dec. 6. Some 250  enthusiasts sat down to a hot  game dinner featuring moose  ', meat and venison. Bob Normin-  ton was called on to say grace.  The catering was capably han-  dlel by the Kinsmen and Kinettes under the direction of  Joe Benner. The hall was colorfully decorated in the Centennial motif of green and gold  Out-of-town head table guests  included, Roy Allen, game  warden of the local, area, Bert  Wilson, game warden of Powell River and Mrs. Wilson, and  Bert Palmer, director of Lower  Mainland zone council of Fish  and Game clubs.

Her winning catch was a 31 lb.  spring salmon. Winner of the  door prize, an attractive carving set, was Bill Dodds.  Mr. Allen spoke briefly on  the continued excellence of the  banquet and brought regrets  from Frank Butler, game commissioner; who has not missed  one of the banquets before. Mr.  Wilson thanked the 'club for its  invitation and wished it success.  Mr. Palmer spoke on the importance of all hunters and  fishermen joining gun clubs so  that there will be a concentrated voice to keep big industry from interfering with natural fishing areas-.  Jack Fox, president of the  club for the past two years,  stressed again the need for all  sportsmen to join a club so that  there will be a force to put  pressure on. the government  when needed. He mentioned  persistent effort of the Sechelt  Club in keeping at the government through its own voice  and that of fellow clubs until  the foreshore of Clowhom  Lake was cleared before the  area was: flooded. He introduced Dan Currie as incoming  president for  1959.  Mr. Bud Railton brought  greetings from the Powell River club and invited local  sharpshooters to attend their  Turkey Shoot on Boxing Day.  During the evening, a snack  table, featuring salmon bits .  smoked by Mr. and Mrs? Stan  Fallows, was set up. It proved  popular. Jeff Jeffrey of Vancouver was the lucky winner  of the .22 rifle with scope sight  and case and Irving Anderson  of the M & W Logging Co.  took home the two-burner rock  gas camp stove donated by the  Rock Gas Company through C  & S Sales and Service.

SHOW  CANCELLED  The Roberts Creek Players'  Club Variety Show Fantasy  and Fashions which was to  have been held December 13  and 14, has been cancelled until further notice, on account  of the weather and bad road  conditions.  Christmas concert  Under direction of Miss Margaret Mclntyre the Roberts  Creek String Orchestra will  present a concert of Christmas  music, solos and community  carol singing on Sunday Dec.  14 at St. Hilda's Church hall  following the evening service.

Further concerts are scheduled  for the early months of next  year.  Another home  for Gibsons  A building permit for a  $6,000- dwelling was granted  William M. Page of Gibsons.  It will be a 24 x 36 ft. building, of five rooms, one storey  high on the School Road.  The meeting was one of the  shortest held during the last  four or five years, there being  little correspondence or other  business to go through.  Accounts covering $115.80  were ordered paid with $59.18  for roads, $22.69 for fire protection, $21.90 for general expense and $12.03 for water.  Young pianist of high calibre  A young man stepped from  the wings of the stage in Elphinstone High School Thursday night of last week, seated  himself at a grand piano and  with the aid of Johartn Sebastian Bach, Robert Schumann,  Ludwig van Beethoven, Dimi-  w ��� ���.  tri Kabalevsky, Frederic Cho-  Clubhouse grounds on Sunday,    pin and Franz Liszt displayed  Dec. 14, commencing at noon,    a talent of surprising wealth.   ��� Playing  on  his   own  piano  brought all the way from Seattle, Allan Harlan, approaching his mid-twenties, was the  first of this season's Overture  Concerts visiting artists. He  played before the largest membership Overture Concerts has  had   in its three seasons.  He opened with I Call on  Thee Lord, by Bach, in the  Busoni arrangement. Concert-  goers probably wonder why  the average proram opens in  the solemnity of Bach music  when there would be a greater contrast if a Bach number  followed something akin to the  more modernistic Kabalevsky  work. But to get back to Mr.  Harlan's approach to Bach, one  would prefer to hear him play  more Bach before judging his  performance.  New nurses  The following nurses have  joined the staff of St. Mary's  Hospital replacing those who  announced their resignations  previously:  Miss Elizabeth Smith, RN,  from North Vancouver General hospital, who received her  training in Scotland and Canada, will be matron starting  Dec. 20; Mm H. Grabins, RN,  from North Vancouver General  Hospital; Miss C. Christensen,  RN, from Vancouver General  hospital; Mrs. Fuller, RN, from  Haney; Miss B.A. Maloney  from. Abbotsford General hospital and Mrs. Ursula Pein  from St. George's General hospital, Alert Bay.  Mr. Harlan displayed lightness of touch in Schumann's  Many Colored Leaves, an eight  section series of musical pictures created through watching  falling Autumn leaves. He revealed an artistry which was  to be developed in later numbers.  The opening bars of the Beethoven Sonata, Opus 57 were  sufficient to show this young  man had a sympathetic feeling  with the music of the great  master. Here "was a work  which gave Mr. Harlan plenty  of scope for his remarkable  talent on a piano which had  resonance to spare. It was a  beautiful instrument and in  capable hands. The Beethoven  sonata was to the lovers of  Beethoven music, a treat of  high order.  His phrasing of the music  was as absolute as a young  man can make it. Allan Harlan must like playing Beethoven because in the next number, the Kabalevsky Sonata,  No. 3, Opus 6 he did not reflect  the same feeling. The Kabalevsky opus was faintly in the  modern idiom but not enough  to make it unpalatable to those  who prefer conventional music  Kabalevsky was at his best in  the final movement, a musical  satire in which one could detect what the program described ��� a burlesque on traditional musical styles.  The Chopin Preludes, Opus  28, were familiar to most listeners and were played with a  sympathetic touch but to play  Chopin after Beethoen and  Kabalevsky is contrast. If such  was needed this would have  been a spot for the Bach number, with the Chopin as an  opener.  To close the program Allan  Harlan played the Liszt No. 14  Rhapsody which filled the usual finale niche with what at  times was a display of piano  pyrotechnics. It does one good  to hear Franz Liszt well-played  now and again and well-played  he was by Mr. Harlan who had  command of the music from  start to finish.  The program's final sequence read: Overture Concerts takes pleasure in presenting a vital young artist to our  audiences. Sunshine Coast  members of Overture Concerts  heard just that ��� a vital young  artist. His future will be watched with interest. ��� F.C.  The Hamilton Skyway is almost ready to open, and for the  first fe$ days motorists will be  using it free. After that, when  the toll equipment is installed  they will pay 15 cents. The skyway, a four lane highway on  salts, stretches across Hamilton harbor and will eliminate  the worst traffic bottleneck in  Southerp Ontario, providing, of  ���course, that the collection of  tolls does not retard the flow  of traffic. This is the type of  skyway, we may have some day  leading to Gibsons.  Fire hydrants  are discussed  At the meeting of Sechelt  Village Commission held Dec.  3, Councillor Parker reported  on progress made in connection v^-fch additional fire hydrants _jtf the village.  Th>; fituation was also discussed wherein property owners had left trees and stumps  on lane and road allowances  when A the properties were  cleare4*|;~.<,. yy.  The Question of a water line*  service to Porpoise Bay was  brought up and left in abeyance for further information.  Chairman Mrs. Johnston reported on action taken in connection with recent flood conditions'on the highway within  the village and stated that the  minister of highways said the  matter would receive immediate attention.  The more than one foot of  snow which fell on the Sunshine Coast area during the  weekend created considerable  damage  to  the power system  . and to telephone lines.  Quick organization of repair gangs held the time of  power disruption to as brief  a time as possible in some  areas but others where the  damage was considerable, had  to wait longer before power  and phone services were back  to normal.  Bob Norminton of B.C. Electric reports his repair crews  and those of Hume and Rumble  had plenty of work to do after the storm. There was one  general power outage which  covered the entire area from  north to south.  Between Gibsons and Earl  Cove there were more than  100 trees felled by weight of  enow across power and phone  lines thus breaking circuits.  Some areas beyond Sechelt  were without power for more  than two days but the heavier  populated regions nearer Gib-  song and Sechelt were without  power for a matter of hours.  Some of the men on the repair gangs worked long stretches without rest and in one in  stance had to leave their work  from one part of the area to  move into the Granthams-  Soames Point region where  damage was caused by a falling tree late Sunday afternoon.  Fred Feeney's repair gang  on B.C. Telephone lines had  plenty of work to do as well  and had lines back in operation  just as soon as they could.  One point on the other side  of Jervis Inlet, near Salt'ery  Bay was a heavy job for repair men as something like 50  trees were down across wires  and the highway in a small  area.  Luckily there were no fires  reported in homes in outlying  areas where roads had become  difficult to navigate due to the  heavy wet snow. Some of the  falling trees did start electrical flare-ups and set fire to some  trees but the general dampness  of everything kept the possibility of fires to a minimum.  Road crews had their snow-  plow�� out early and cleared  the main highway as rapidly as  the scrapers could navigate  along the snow-covered highway. The RCMP who patrolled  the area to spot cars that were  in difficulty report no drivers  got themselves into serious  trouble.  M  onsoon perio  d?  BY  R.F.

The odds are heavily in favor of keeping British Columbia green for Christmas Day.  but looking outside it's hard to  say at this writing. But we'll  go for a good old fashioned  Merry Christmas, and a white  and prosperous, New Year.  Adults only  Sechelt Theatre offers an attractive double feature program on Friday and Saturday  evenings with two shows  nightly at 7 and 9 p,.m.  In connection with the advertisement in this issue, it  should be noted that admission  on those evenings will be 75  cents and adults only will be  admitted.  The feature picture, "Kara-  moja," deals with adventures  filmed in Africa depicting a  certain amount of "nature in  the raw" dealing with native  life on the Dark Continent and  for this reason the management  feels obliged to restrict admission to adults only.

Isaac Emmerson  The funeral for Isaac Emmerson, 82, of Gibsons who  died Dec. 2 at St. Mary's hospital, took place Dec. 6 at St.  Bartholomew's Angl ican  church with Rev. Denis Harris  officiating. Burial was made  in Seaview cemetery. Graham  Funeral Home was  in charge.  Mr. Emmerson was born in  England, served in the Boer  War, and moved to Canada, settling at Delia, Alberta. Later  he moved to the British Columbia coast where he settled at  Gibsons somewhere about 1920  He lived in the vicinity of the  Cannery Road for many years.  Throughout his lifetime Mr.  Emmerson was interested chiefly in the care of animals and  as an unofficial veterinarian  who ��� was always in demand  during the early days. He never lost touch with his hobby,  even after retirement.  Mr. Emmerson did a considerable amount of work among  livestock in the community and  was not one who worried too  much about one's financial status. If he could help there was  none more willing than he to  do what he could.  His wife predeceased him  in Alberta and he came to  Gibsons with a daughter, now  Mrs. Bette Myers, now living  at Kingston, Ont. There are six  grandchildren.

An old, old story  That age old problem of why people do not pay more attention to municipal affairs has raised its head again. The complaint is that few ratepayers ever show up at municipal or school  board meetings  The issue Wfts raised while municipal political situations!  in Gibsons and Sechelt were being discussed. Based on personal  -experience of those taking part in the discussion, the fact few  ratepayers take the slightest interest in what goes on at school  board or municipal meetings is only too true.  What to do about it? Well other type organizations do  issue door and spot prizes and other such wrinkles,. However, the  law will not allow publicly chosen organization officials to indulge in any such frippery. Rightly so, too, because if the ratepayer is not sufficiently interested in what happens to ratepayer's money then it is nobody's fault but that of the taxpayer.  To discuss the matter with persons' who have attended  hundreds of municipal or school board meetings would reveal  that the situation changes only in times of stress and when there  is no stress the public shows a complete apathy to the affairs  of councils or school boards.  If stresses appear, and they do in cycles, then interest is  shown to the point where it becomes exaggerated and the representatives they elect to public office become ogres of some sort,  or are despoilers of public treasuries and so on.  On�� of these days the public will not be quite so taken up  with heavy spending. Our senior governments in bygone days  were hesitant about presenting a provincial budget say of about  $30,000,000. Today $30,000,000 would possibly cover one project  within a government program.  The only answer readily at hand to get the public interested in how. their tax money is spent would be the return of hard  times. Looking back into the tough '20s and the very tough '30s  one can recall the ratepayer meetings in variouis parts of the  country that were worth attending. There was always the canny  Scot who sat silent for a period and when an issue appeared on  its way towards becoming somewhat cooled off, up he would  get up and with one sharp question set the whole issue afire.  There does not appear to be any reason for a similar situation arising in the immediate future so we shall have to put up  with languishing ratepayer associations and the fact no ratepayers show up at meetings where the public money is involved.  TJu  t snozv 'sno joke  One should take an optimistic view of the heavy snowfall  we have had and admire pictures of what ��nowflakes look like.  Apparently they contain remarkable geometric patterns of such  delicacy that they far surpass any drawn with pen or pencil in  ihe hands of humans.  However, one can readily understand why employees of  ���the roads department or those of B.C. Electric will take a jaundiced view of the geometric designs of any or all snowflakes.  They had their problems over the weekend and they were not of  a fanciful nature.  It is quite possible they do not regard their job finished  yet because if we get a quick thaw ��� watch out!

I am, Sincerely yours,  J. W.  <$��agrmtfe  Letters to the editor  Editor: This letter is not  written directly to you,, but to  the person who "Contributed"  a suggestion for the teenagers  in a recent edition of the Coast  News   The opening line of the article was begun: "Always we  hear the spoiled plaintive cry  of the teenager: . .." Who is  "we"? It seems to me that the  c.-ily people that would hear  that phrase would be the parents of the teenagers, and if  teenager.;, or pre-teenagers  were treated in a half decent  manner at home, they would  help with the house work etc.,  without whining. I am not saying that all the parents don't  try to understand their teenage children, because my parents are very understanding,  and so are the parents of a lot  of my friends.  If the person who wrote that  article would think back a few  years, he would most likely  remember that he was once a  teenager, just like us. It is an  age where you are supposed  to act like an adult, but in  most cases you are treated like  a child. Also, I would like to  say to "Contributed" that he  has probably lived most of his  life, or at least a good deal of  it, and he would probably be  contented to help the minister, help the Red Cross,? the  Salvation Army and visit the  sick," but when you are a teenager, you are just beginning  your life. I'm sure that when  he was a teenager that he didr  n't spend all his time doing  things of that nature, he was  probably out with the rest of  the kids, trying to find something to  do.  All the teenagers realize that  the world doesn't owe them  a living, which brings up the  matter of trjung to find a job.  I know from personal experience, and from the experience  of a lot of other teenagers, who  have, I might add, a very good  reputation, that in this place,  when there is a job open, a  teenager can apply for the job  before anyone else does, have  good recommendations and experience, and a married man  or woman can apply for the  same job two or three w^eks?  later, have no 1 r^orrunenda-���  tions or experience, and they  will get the job, not the teenagers! So, W:S owe the world  something ��� so what can we  give the world if we aren't  even trusted for a job?  The average teenager doea  spend a fair amount of time at  home, helping around the  house and doing homework etc.  but for a change, just what  can they do? Go to the beer  parlour, or play pool like some  of the older and more level-  minded adult�� of the world?  You have to admit now, if  there wasn't a beer parlour  here, just what would those  adults do??? There isn't even  a theatre here, actually there  is all of nothing to do here,  especially on a .weekend. The  reply to this would be the u_a-  ual: "STAY HOME!" Unless  you are so old that you can't  move, I can't see anyone sitting home all the time reading  Let us W-aiignand  BAlANCEYOURWHmS  ������$AV��yOMTtRE$��  BODIE  GdLl?iS10liS  K "��-V v/?.v _ '-{ / i   / ������������":���  :���'isd SEYMOUR  st:  Buy and Use  Christmas Seals  a book. The lawn can't be  mowed two or three times a  day, the car doesn't need washing that often, and a floor  shouldn't have to be washed  more than twice or three times  a week, so what do you do  when you are finished all your  work and you are tired of reading books, I'd like to know.  if you go for a walk you're  called a juvenile delinquent, if  you are seen in a cafe having  a Coke you're called "a good-  for-nothing that does nothing  out hang around." So what can  you ao'. ieenager_; are b��-ac  *>c-xore they even start.  In conclusion I would just  live to remind a few old fogies  that all teenagers aren't bad,  just like all adults aren't bad.  and also, they should be reminded that every time they  read about a robbery, a traffic  accident or a murder, it isn't  always a teenager that is responsible for it.  A Teenager.  a good time, run in gangs,  smoke, drink and generally  waste our lives away.  It is true that the world  does not owe us a living but  we believe it owes us an example.  When old time families get  together and return to the  world, the teenagers will return to-normal.  Your Teenagers.

In order that they may  be hot when they reach the  table, heat the serving dishes in  the warming oven, or rinse the  dishes  with, a little hot   water.  Some good "go-alongs" with  seafoodi soups are; crisp crackers,  wafers, Melba toast, bread sticks  and buttered toast strips.  ^f*       "r*       n��  When a recipe calls for fish  stock and you don't have any  fish bones or trimmings on hand  with which to make it, don't give  up.

"Even when entertaining at  Christmas and the New Year,  Canadian women can help reduce the tragic traffic accidents which are unfortunately  so prevalent at this time of  year," stated Mrs. Keith Rand,  president of the Federated Women's Institutes of Canada in  a pre-holiday message.  Here are a few simple rules  which Mrs. Rand suggests to  keep this holiday season full  of joy, but free from accidents  No matter what form your  entertainment may take,- have  plenty of tasty, quickly prepared snacks on hand. They  add to the fun and enjoyment  of the evening.  Have lots of non-alcoholic  beverages on hand, as many  people prefer them. Fruit and  vegetable juices, served in su  gar-frosted glasses, are exciting, while soft drinks, strong  coffee and hot chocolate are  staples.  Never  press   "one   for   the  road" oii a guest unless it's a  cup of coffee. Alcohol and gasoline are a lethal mixture. Coffee will help every driver to  stay alert and alive.  If a storm is forecast, persuade your out-of-town guests  to stay overnight. It is better  to get home late than be stuck  in a ditch..  If you have been a guest at  a party, why not stop on the  way back for a cup of coffee,  or other alertness beverage.  There'll be safer driving in  store for you, particularly if  you drive slowly, and you  won't feel nearly so tired when  you reach home.

BEFORE RINGING THE OPERATOR: If on a party line,  lift the receiver to find out if the line is in use.  Then replace the receiver.  2. TO CALL THE OPERATOR: With the receiver on the hook,  give one long, vigorous ring of about three seconds duration.  3. WHEN THE CALL IS FINISHED: Hang up the receiver and  turn the crank vigorously and continuously for about three seconds  ;   to let the operator know that the line is free so she can disconnect.  THIS RING-OFF IS IMPORTANT, as otherwise the operator  will report your line as "busy" to anyone trying to call you.  BRITISH COLUMBIA TELEPHONE COMPANY  Harbour.  Mrs. G.

ARTICLE  16  By Thomas Humphries  I may be a little prejudiced but  to me the dales of Yorkshire are  as beautiful and satisfying as the  scenery in any part of England,  Wharf edale, Nidderdale and  Wensleydale, to mention some  we visited again. Then, the Yorkshire moors have a facination all  their own. As ��or cathedrals,  York Minster and Ripon Cathedral- are as historic and interesting as any in England. So, it  was with regret that we realized  that   our   three weeks  stay in  Yorkshire was coming to an end  and it was time to start thinking of our rendezvous with the  ���Caronia' in Southampton on  'Kuiesday, June 24. But, before  starting on your journey south a  few remarks about road signs  and traffic regulations may be of  interest.  One of the great helps in traffic regulations on English highway is the practice of having  'roundabouts' at all busy intersections where tr-c-Iic lights are  CALHOUN HOTEL  2000 SECOND AVENUE SEATTLE 1, WASH.

These have the effect  of slowing up the traffic to ten  miles an hoair and distributing  it to the left right or straight  through without any confusion  or stopping. Probably the  'roundabout' is a development of  the ' circus' which has been a  feature of the London streets  for a long, long time. Where it  has been feasible some towns  have adopted this method of  traffic control. In Harrogate, for  instance, traffic was completely  controlled by 'roundabouts' and  I never saw a traffic light there.  Another good point about the  highways in, England is that  there are no ditches, even on  the country roads, drainage is: by  tile drain underground. Some of  the road signs were quite amusing to us. A frequent sign we  saw on two lane highways was  'Lay-by, 1500 feet.' This indicated a widening of the road one  .could pull of and rest. The  shoulders of the road were referred to as the verge, and the  sign, 'No Waiting' indicated1  that parking in that spot was  prohibited. A sign that we came  across on some of the more important highways which amused  us greatly was 'Dual Carriageway' indicating that ahead was  a divided four lane highway.  Another good safety feature  on the highways, which we dot  not see in Canada or the United  States, is what are referred to  as 'cats eyes.' Instead of a painted white line down the centre,  of a two lane highway, which requires repainting at frequent intervals, the road engineers m  Britain have devised a permanent line which, lasts as long as  the pavement. White metal disks  are placed in the asphalt when  the road is built. They are slightly higher than the road surface,  so that the driver feels them if  his wheels wander over the line  and they are, luminous in the  beam of the head lights after  dark.  We also noticed very few roads  without a sidewalk of some kind.  True, they were, often very narrow but still they were there.

News, Sports, Road, Marine and Weather Reports.  on the RIGHT side of your tlial  10-OO�� WATTS  way' highways there were not  ^niy sidewalks but special paths  ��or cyclists. Almost all motor  cyclists wore crash helmets as a  pafety feature. We were told that  this was not compulsory but was  strongly recommended by the  highway authorities.  Probably due to the extreme  changeability of the weather I  managed to catch a bad cold a  few days before leaving for the  south. Not being used to this  sort of thing, (I had not had a  cold for years) I went to see a  doctor before leaving for Southhampton. He examined my chest  and went through the usual  routine, gave me some pastilles  and, to my astonishment, refused,  to accept any fee. This was my  experience of state medicine in  England andi a very pleasant experience it was. If it had been  necessary to go to a hospital  there would have been no charge  for the ambulance nor any  charge for hospital accommodation.  Before leaving Yorkshire I  would like to mention a rather  interesting experience I had one  day while travelling on the top  of a bus between Leeds and  Bradford. The bus was rather  crowded and the only seat I.  could find was a front seat on  the top. A youngish man was  oca-ipying the seat next to me  pnd we got into conversation  /������nd, much to my surprise it  transpired that he had spent  most of his childhood in British  Columbia and knew the whola>  Province like a book, his father  having been an R.C.M.P. officer  who had moved around the Province a good deal. My young  friend had taken his. medical  training in England and was at  present interning at a Leeds hospital. He was very interested in  tha latest news from British Columbia and admitted that he had  some thought of getting back  there.

We found the  Great North road, which is the  main artery for traffic between  the north and London, a little  too busy for our liking so we  consulted our maps and detour-  ed off it on to a very pleasant  secondary road through Lincoln  and Peterboro and reached Cambridge in the early evening.  Here we spent a very pleasant  evening visiting an old Vancouver friend.  The next morning we were  taken by our friends on a very  interesting walk round the centre of Cambridge, -visiting many  of the colleges where 7,000 students are seeking higher education. At the rear of the colleges  are beautiful green lawns running down to the river Cam and  these are known as the 'Backs.'  We were impressed with Cambridge, its quaint streets, beautiful chuches and its university.

LETTERS  to editor  Editor: In answer to the notice in your last edition regarding the supposed objection by  the Gower Point property  owners to the proposed development of a scow loading and  pleasure boat basin at the  mouth of Chaster Creek, I  would like to point out that I  fail to see where Mr. H.J. Chas  ter is representative of the  Gower Point property owners,  there being a 'considerable num  ber of property owners, including myself, in the Gower Point  area who are very much in  favor of this proposed development.  As   far   as   we   understand  there is nothing obnoxious or  detrimental in any way in this  proposed      development     and  considerable things in its favor  and very much to the advantage of the strictly local area  of Chaster   Creek,  and to the  Peninsula as a whole. My understanding  is   that   the  company   involved   is   willing   to  create a proper boat harbor for  ��mall pleasure boats and also  a proper bathing beach by bulldozing a strip of the rocks and  replacing them with sand, this  at no expense to the residents.  Coupled with this is the investment of considerable capital in a gravel processing plant  which  incidentally   will   be  a  considerable distance from the  foreshore, and the creation of  a payroll for about 20 men, the  only actual  industry  involved  on the foreshore being the moving of sand and gravel to scows  by conveyor, thus avoiding the  use of trucks or any other equip  ment that might  be considered a detriment from the residential standpoint of the area.  Surely the advantages to the  community as a whole to be  obtained   from   any   development such as this, far outweigh  any   personal   objections  that  a few might have from their  own standpoint in the immediate   vicinity   and   surely it is  time that the  Peninsula as  a  whole appreciated the fact that  if our community is to be on a  sound footing every encouragement should be given to industry and payrolls, thus encouraging some of our younger generation   to   remain   here   and  make this their home.  Only a limited number can  live on the tourist trade and  the summer campers, and  therefore we must have something more substantial to create  a sound community.  R.W. (Ran) Vernon.
