Unorganized area total was $775,-  000* covering all building operations from Port Mellon area  northwest to Jervis Inlet.  These figures compiled on a  month to month basis by B.C.  Electric's office at Sechelt re-  iv teal that there is definitely no  slowing up in building homes  and commercial enterprises on  the Sunshine Coast and judging from real estate sales to  people intending to build it  would appear that there could  be an, increase coming.  Among the larger commercial projects during the year  were, the $45,000. hotel at Sea  side, ?$10,000 for Bal'�� Block,  Gibsdns, $5,000 iphone exchange at Gibsons, $50,000  plus for plant extension at  Port Mellon, $25,000 for plant  construction by Standard Oil  at Davis Bay and $5,000 on the  Pender Harbour telephone exchange. .

A special invitation is extended to all women's' organizations to join as the women of  Gibsons area take their places  in the line which extends  around the earth in praise and  thanksgiving. x  en wires  Storms, falling trees and  "branches, and car accidents  do cause damage to overhead  power lines along? the Sunshine Coast. And the dangling  wires may look innoccent ���:  but may be dangerous.  If yjou see .a wire down, call  the nearest B.C. Electric office  at once. Linemen will answer  ~your call promptly.  "Never be tempted to touch  a fallen wire," warns F.H.  (Bob) Norminton, BCE district  ��� manager. "Electricity travels  fast ���;��� hits hard ��� and you  can't see it. During or after  a storm or accident, a fallen  wire must ��� under all circumstances ��� be considered as being dangerous."  Mr. Norminton also asks  that persons planning to fell  trees or 'blast near B.C. Electric power lines, advise the  nearest BCE office so precautions can be taken.  lEach year some people are  inconvenienced by interruptions to their electric service  because trees are dropped  across their power lines during  clearing operations, or tlie  lines are broken by blasting  operations.  At the annual general meeting of the Sechelt Volunteer  Fire Brigade, Wed., Jan. 28,  all former officers were reelected by acclamation. They  are T.H. Parish, fire chief, T.G.  Robilliard, assistant fire chief;  Tom Gory, captain No. 1 truck;  Maurice Hemstreet, captain No.  2 truck; Walter Waddell, sec-  retary-treasurer and H. Nelson  and W.L. Billingsley, executive  W.L. Billingg.ey was elected  chairman of meetings for the  coming year.  Fourteen fires were attended  during 1958, eight of them  chimney fires. There was one  total loss and two others in  which damage was about $1050  There were three calls for  the inhalator, a call to assist  Gibsons brigade at Bal's Block  fire and some members were  called to administer first aid  in a shooting case.  The brigade now has 1,000  feet of new hose, new engines  in both trucks and the Fire  Hall, it is hoped will be completed this year.  The members of the brigade  thank residents of the areas  served, the commissioners of  the Village of Sechelt, the department of Indian Affairs and  others for their generous support during the past year and  hope it will be repeated during 1959.  DiredtorsT' elected .were Mr.  W. Haley; Mr. E. Cooper, Mr.  M. Hough and Mr. F. Feeney.  Auditors will.be Jtleg Adams,  George Elander and Mr. G.  Cresswell.   ,  The'rneeting passed a proposed amendment to association bylaws wh?ich under membership clauses now reads that  \active menibers must be members of thie Volunteer Fire Services.  Fred Feeney was chairman  of\the 'meeting and Cliff Mahlman explained the workings  and accomplishments of the  Gibsons and Area Volunteer  Fire Department. The financial  statement was analyzed by  Dick Kendall to the satisfaction of members. Mr. Mahlman  then proceeded with an outline  of the aims of the association  for the Current year.  Thes Volunteer Fire Services has thanked Roy Fletcher for a generous donation  he had made to them.  Mr. Feeney demonstrated a  dry chemical fire extinguisher  and suggested that home owners should try to purchase this  type instead of buying something not recognized^ by the  Underwriters Laboratories.  Some types will soon be termed as unfit for recommendation  by the Underwriters. Labpra  tories. Anyone wishing to purchase an inexpensive, dependable and recognized home fire  extinguisher can do so through  the local Fire Department  which will recharge them with  the proper, chemical, at  cost.  liOSPITAr  MEETING  To ��� discuss possibilities of  forming a hospital association  which would explore possibilities of building a hospital nearer the larger centres of population, a meeting ha�� been  called for Saturday night in  Legion hall at Sechelt, start  ing at 8 p.m.  It is 'expected there will be  a number of Gibsons individuals who have already explored the situation, attending the  meeting.  The idea would be, it is un-  dersood, to see what could be  done about establishing a hos-  pial with sufficient beds to  serve the area based on population  requirements.  ation is needed to show that  more than $1,000,000 went into  new home and commercial construction during 1958.  Since B.C. Electric under  supervision of Bob Norminton,  district manager, started compiling building statistics in  May of 1957 it is safe to assume that close to $1,300,000  based on an actual permit figure of $1,144,570 has been  spent on construction along the  Sunshine Coast and of this total 75 percent would be for  new home��.  From May to December last  year $81,300 was spent on new  construction in Gibsons. In Sechelt the amount for the same  period was $60,100 and for  only two months, November  and December in the unorganized areas, $68,000 was recorded.  More homes means more  taxpayer�� and buyers of goods  on sale in the shopping areas  of%the Sunshine Coast.  One needs to take one look  only to decide that the types  of homes now being built along  the Sunshine Coast are of superior construction and are  usually made to fit into sur=  rounding landscape.  Chai  dmonisli  airman admonishes  silent   ratepayer  A complaint that he "did  not want to be a stool pigeon"  in reporting water wastage  roused the ire of Chairman  Ritchey when a complainant  appeared before Gibsons commission at Tuesday night's  meeting.  Chairman Ritchey said this  was not a law-abiding attitude  y and the only way to get the  corrections sought was to report to either the police or the  commission so proper action  cart be taken.  It was the only way to- establish a law abiding community and such reporting did not  constitute "stool pigeon" opera  tions, he said. The complainant  did not like paying $2.50 for  summer sprinkling while  others sprinkled without benefit of a permit.  In view of the fact Robert  Burns, the village clerk, reaches 65 years of age and also the  Vancouver were granted a permit for a $500 addition to an  existing house.  Accounts passed for payment totalled $1,489.30 of  which $788.66 went to fire protection, $500.22 general, $205.-  57 for water and $1.73 for  roads.  Sunshine Coast Fall Fair  wrote asking for the usual donation from the Village Commission which members of the  commission agreed to. The do^.  nation amounts to $25.  Red  gets  Cross  ready  Rev.

Mrs. Harry Reichelt was reelected     vice-president,     Mrs.  Jean Mainil, disaster chairman  and  Mrs.  Fred   Cruice,  secretary. Editor of the Coast News,  Fred Cruice,   has assumed duties as campaign ^manager for  ' this  year's  March  Red   Cross  campaign.  Mr. Donaldson will also be  branch delegate to the annual  Red Cross meeing to be held  ' this month in Vancouver.  Last year's campaign collected $877.45 which included  $125 from Port Mellon. The  quota for this year will remain  the same as last year. Ted Hen  niker of the Bank of Montreal,  last year's campaign manager,  reported he was pleased wittr  the effort put forth by the canvassers last year and hopes the  same success will occur this  year.  There will be an organization meeting of canvassers on  Sat, Feb. 21 at 2 p.m. in the  Coast News office when plans  will be laid down for completion   of   this year's campaigm  They are building again at  St. Bart's  Not content to rest on their  bars after building a new vicarage, the church committee  has set about providing much  needed extra space for the  Sunday school and a considerable extension to the Parish  Hall is   just about completed.  While this committee has  not planned a special canvass  for funds to pay for this addition, it feels confident that  many will wish to contribute  toward providing the proper  facilities for the religious education of the children.  Donations from well-wishers  such as parents of children attending the Sunday school,  will be greatly appreciated  and should be sent to the Parish treasurer, at Box 212, Gib-  eons.  -   At  the annual vestry'meeting of the Parish of St. Bar-    sponsor a public square dance  tholomew  held  Jan.    30,   the    to be held at Granthams Hall,  following officers  were   elect-    Feb. 14, 8:30 p.in.

The congregation was gratified to learn that Mr. George  Cooper had consented to act  as Sunday school superintendent and thus relieve Mrs. Os  waid of the heavy burden she  has so cheerfully borne foi  so many years.

National Health Week  National Health Week will be celebrated in 1959, for the  15th year, fdom Feb. 1 to Feb. 7. The object of National Health  Week is to permeate the entire country with educational material from all legitimate sources, in order that during one week  in the year all may have the opportunity of getting the facts  not only as to the seriousness of disease but as to the means  which should be taken to combat disease.  During National Health Week, departments of health,  doctors, dentists, nurses and nutritionists will combine with  national societies in the field of health to utilize all of the media  of publicity and co-operate to carry the message of health to all  parts of the country.  Promotion folders, giving, full information as to what any  group in Canada may do to help promote National Health Week,  are available to all who care to ask for them. It is hoped that  our readers will do their best to help spread information about  health in their various communities.  Compromise would help  To get proper perspective on the argument between Mayor  Alsbury and newspapers in Vancouver one should ask the question is the mayor fighting the press generally or just a certain  Vancouver newspaper.  The expression "disproportional representation" which  was used in an editorial last week' applies in this case. The mayor  is complaining about the type of reporting that occurs. At this  point it should be pointed out the liberty of the press is no more  sacred than the rights of others.  When one side is adamant, surely the other side has the  right to be just as adamant. The power of the press is not absolute. Compromise sometimes works wonderfully well.  Love over the telephone  The telephone company's study of combinations and permutations shows that this can happen only once in five thousand  calls, but the young fellow claims that is too often. Once was  ���enough to cause him a lot of trouble, he says. It seems that he  and his girl telephoned each other's apartments at the siame time.  Each got a busy signal. He mildly wondered "what other jerk is  trying to date miy girl?" Later when he got through to her and  they both explained, he had a good laugh about it. "Trouble is,"  the young fellow sayfs,.- "she doesn't believe me. Thinks I was  talking to another girl. The thing is causing me a lot of trouble."  He was upset enough to call the telephone company and  Jell about it all. That was when he learned of the five-thousand-  to-one chance. The telephone man said the company had provided against practically any kind of disaster, except love.

For several  months past attendance and  interest has been about equal.  Last meeting fell just short of  a quorum despite the fact that  three village commissioners attended. It was decided to transact business in order to dispose of correspondence and  keep the organization functioning.  At that the few faithful attendees are about fed up and  it was tacitly agreed that unless there is a fair turn out  next meeting that it will be as  well to shut up shop.  The caretaker officers are  anxious to have an election in  order that they may be relieved of'their offices. Therefore,  readers it is up to you, if you  don't come along to the next  meeting it will be assumed that  you are agreed to let the Ratepayers organization cease to  exist.  Dave Rees.  Editor: It is worthy of note  in your paper that a Very interesting article in the current  issue of the Canadian Geographic Magazine is by a local  journalist, L.R. Linton of  Roberts Creek.  Marvin W. Whyte.  How to lose capital  Unless a government takes  decisive steps to control the  rise of inflation, it is defrauding and swindling its people.  This is the theme of an article  by Andre Visson, Paris author,  ity on European politics, in the  February issue of Reader's Digest.  Drawing from the recent pc-  onomic history of France, he  illustrates by compelling example, the cost to the individual of overs-taffed and inefficient government machinery,  government subsidies and the  unbalanced budget. j  Proving hew dearly the citizen must pay in the end for  what the state gives away for  nothing, he ciieii a_nicng oJiers  the case history of Roger Le  tourneau of Normandy.  With typical French thrift  and thought for the future, he  sacrificed   to   purchase   annu  ities to provide a minimum of  comfort for himself and his  wife in later years.  What L^tourneau couldn't  forsee war. that a pound of butter he could buy for 10 francs  in 1927 would cpst his widow  410 francs today. What was  destined to provide for her  security in -old age, allows her  to shop only for one egg at a  time, for a little milk every  other day and a slice of ham  once a week.  For far too many people in  France a dream of old age security has turned into a nigr-.t-'  mare of poverty. Every Frenchman, who put his savings in  government bonds before or  after World War II has lost  the major share of his capital.  The once adequate pensions of  World War I veterans are now  worth no more to them than  60 cents a month.  BY TONY GARGRAVE, ML A  The official opening ceremony df the third session of  the 25th 'Parliament of .British  Columbia, was a day of frills,  guns and a rain-soaked guard  of honor. The public love these  ceremonial affairs. The demand  for tickets always exceeds the  supply.  This year there was a slight  difference because the Throne  Speech was much longer and  the Lieutenant Governor had"  a full 30 minutes reading time.  We are warned in the Speech  that five Royal Commission  reports will be laid before us  and two more are uncompleted. There will be lots of work  ahead.  Legislation is also promised  to assist the education and  training of retarded children  as well as increased grants to  school districts and V.B.C.  These are   anxiously  awaited.  The government tells us  they are deeply concerned with  unemployment and intend to  refer the matter to the committee on labor. I am opposed  tc this procedure because that  was done at the 1958 session.  The committee met 16 organizations.��� anyone with an idea.  . They labored long and patiently. They Admitted that there  w-s no single solution but listed nine recommendations;  things to be done as sort of  sr.op gaps. Finally, the committee advised that the whole matter be referred to the B.C. Research council.  There are 40,000 unemployed reported in the Lower Mainland. The federal government  haa offered to pay.50% of the  wage costs of special relief  projects but the municipalities are unable, even with good  intentions, to handle the problem. Obviously the provincial  government has some responsi  bility.  They- must co-operate with  the municipalities and offer to  take, a goodly share of the  costs. No good can come of  referring it to a committee for  study. The problem has been  referred ��� it has been studied.  Our system of private enterprise cannot plan for full employment, it can only spend  extra money on special projects'  to relieve the worst of the situation. Part of our job is to  see that any such projects will  be socially useful and not mere  make-work projects.  Robert Strachan took his  turn last Monday. He was critical of various government departments including education,  welfare and mental institutions  His strongest condemnation  was that the .report of the mental health services was not  presented to the house until  the last day of the session, too  late to discuss its content.  Even at the time of writing,  ten months later, some MLA's  have not received a copy. The  reason this report was suppress  sed said Strachan, was because  responsible staff members had  disclosed that shortage of personnel had caused a lowering  in the quality of services.

E. Jess-op,  the pastor, give an inspiring  message, charging the congre-.  gation with their responsibility to this community.  His sermon was based on the  text found in Joshua 1:5: As I  was with Moses, I will be with  thee. An appropriate solo: We  love the place O Lord that in  Thine Honor dwells, was sung  by Mrs. Herb Stockwell,, accompanied by Mrs. Jessop who  also played for the service. The  Sacrament of the Lord's Supper was observed at the close  with Deacon Smith and Deacon Myers, both old-timers in  the community, serving.  A hymn board has been given to the church by the Explorer Group led by Mrs. Jessop. Several bouquets of spring:  flowers added greatly to the.  worship service.  The service was attended by  interested friends from many  points of the Peninsula. The  local congregation thanks all  who have helped in any way  to fulfill the aspirationsi of the  pioneer ministers who worked  in this area for many years.  The church is located one  block north of Sechelt's main  street. It is finished in white  stucco with Apache trim. The  leaded amber glass -windows  in aluminum frames! add to  the attractiveness of the building. The ceiling and font wall  of the chalel are finished in  natural cedar and indirect  lighting has been used throughout.. Ample space has been  .provided for a growing Sunday School which in the past -  year has contributed $300 to  ihe building  fund.  It is felt that this church  will fill a real need in this  community as the building  which hag been used for the  past four years was very inadequate for the growing congregation. The dedication service will be held later in Hie  year.  g.X'3C^iHef^&ffi 5,  1959.

HE KEPT HIS WORD  It is well over a century  since David Livingstone went  to Central Africa where he  spent the greater part of his  life. What the natives thought  of him is summed up in the  fact that even today when they  wish o make *a solemn vow,  . they say, "I pledge you by the  word of an Englishman."  David ..Livingstone arrived  in Africa in 1841, and after  more than 12 years of daring  adventure and devoted service  in the heart of that vast continent he decided to visit the  West Coast and maybe return  to England for a visit. He  would need some boys (the  name given to natives by their  chief) to help him on the perilous journey of more than  1,000 miles through dense jungle.  Skeletu, the chief, gathered  his men together and consulted them.. Many feared that  Livingstone and his 27 helpers  would not survive the journey  and others feared that he  would sail for his homeland  and the "boy's" would be left  to return alone.  * *    *  The natives had great respect  for the missionary. They knew  he was a man of his word, and  so when he said: "If you give  me your sons for the journey  I promise to return with them  and deliver them to their  homes and parents. My life  will be as a pledge." They  knew he would keep his word.  The journey was both difficult and dangerous. They were  often hungry and thirsty, and  sometimes so exhausted that  they could scarcely move for-  word. Swollen rivers and steep  hills confronted them and  sharp thorns in the jungle  stung them. Livingstone suffered much from fever which  caused him to ache all over, so  that he could not stand up  without help. The carriers also  suffered a good deal; still they  pressed on for Livingstone's  cheerful spirit and courage  gave them strength.  * . #.    *  Although some tribes were  h... .ile, Livingstone's firmness and kindness conquered  them and no fighting took  place. Whenever he had an opportunity he preached to them  and much good resulted. He  had a magic lantern,"'-and-often  showed pictures; they were  greatly interested and sometimes afraid, it was so new  and strange. At long last the  harbour of Luanda was reached, and Livingstone's "boy's"  got their first glimpse of the  sea. Their astonishment left  them speechless. They exclaim  ed: "All,at once the world said  to us, 'i am finished; there is  no more of me'."  *    *    *  There was a British warship  in the harbor. The commander  had been sent to take the great  missionary back to Britain. He  was both astonished and disappointed when Livingstone  declined to go. He said, "Queen  Victoria has urged you to come  and all Britain is waiting to  do you honor. You must come."  The "warship returned to  England without the missionary. The offficers could not understand his "attitude. They  thought he was both foolish  and stubborn. Strange to say  that warship struck an uncharted rock and all her crew  perished.  *    *    *   Livingstone had given his  solemn pledge that he -would  bring all the boys back again,  and no longing for home could  make him break that promise.  So once again he and his party  began the long voyage homeward, which they reached after an absence of two and a  half years. They received a  great welcome, and Livingstone's "boys" were regarded  as heroes. They proudly -walked ? around the village in  clothes bought in Luanda. To  their friends they said: "We  went on till we finished the  whole world. We only turned  back when there was no more  land."  All this happened nearly  one hundred years ago, but in  that part of, Africa they still  refer to Livingstone as "The  Man who Kept His Word."  Credit meeting  set for Feb.  11  The executive committee . of  the Merchants Credit Association of the Sunshine Coast met  at the home of the president,  William Swain, at Selnria Park  on Wednesday evening, Jan.  28. Every member was present  and many . matters were discussed in preparation for the  general meeting to be held at  the Peninsula Hotel on Wednesday, Feb. 11 at 8 p.m.  This will be a business meeting and it is hoped every member -will attend so policy for  1959 can. be outlined and adopted. Definite information with  regard to the use,of committal  orders in the Small Debts court  will also-foe available for the  meeting.  Members of Overture Concerts have a real treat coming  when Betty Phillips and Ernie  Prentice appear in the season's  second concert in Elphinstone  High School Auditorium, Feb.  12 at 8 p.m.  Many Sunshine Coast people  will remember the pair in  their CBC Lolly Too-Dum  show in which they sang  through folk songs of many  countries. Their stage manner  is quite informal which helps  then} sing on a more friendly  footing with the audience.  To reveal how far they do  research ' for their programs  there was the day when more  than 20 books of songs and  carols lay on the piano and  chairs of the CBC Vancouver  studio. Ernie Prentice hunted  through them. "I'm looking for  a Burgundian Carol for the  Christmas Lolly Too-Dum. It  dates back to about the middle  of the 12th century," he" ex-.  plained, then added, "Jerry  Fuller,*** our arranger, calls us  the Hit Parade of 1650."  Meanwhile, at the piano Betty Phillips and Jerry worked  out keys, and in a corner conductor George Calangis and  producer Dagg Overgaard discussed the balance between  fast and slow moving songs  on the program.  In interviews, the stars of  Lolly Too Dum have the easy  natt%ilness of their show, as  when Betty was explaining  how she had to get from one  position on the set to another  by crawling behind a low wall.  "Unfortunately, the camera  turned on me just as I was  crawling along like this" and  she illustrated by crawling on  her hands and knees across  the floor of the CBC Times  office.  Betty was born in Vancouver and it's a story in her family that she sang before she  talked. She received training  in classical singing and at  school sang in school operas,  with her first professional appearance on Singing Stars of  Tomorrow.  After auditioning for the  CBC she sang on many radio  shows, including Leicester  Square, on which she still appears, till she got her own Betty Phillips Sings. She also appeared with TUTS (including  Finian's Rainbow). Her first  TV appearance was the female  lead in Die Fledermaus in Toronto. Betty spent ten months  in Europe in 1955 when she appeared on BBC TV and radio.  On her return she married in  San Francisco.  Ernie Prentice was born in  Winnipeg where he appeared  iri amateur shows and. came to  Vancouver in 1936. Despite his  complete lack of musical, training ��� he still can't read music ���- his naturally good voice  earned him many spots on radio. After a spell in the RCAF  during' the war he worked  more and more with the CBC,  singing with Ricky Hysilop and  Terry Dale on a Vancouver  Jubilee show, on Harmony  House, with Juliette on Dream-  time, on Leicester Square, and  many others; also in straight  roles in CBC drama.  Ernie was in a TV show of  ballads and folk songs* called  The Roving Gambler. After  this he was engaged for three  shows of a similar type for the  national network, on the second of which Betty Phillips appeared with him. At once Ernie felt that folk songs particularly suited him. And the public seemed to think so too. For  so many letter^ and phone  calls were received from, all  over Canada that the original  three shows became six, then  nine.  6 -  Coast News, Feb.   5, 1959.

"The -unity of British Columbia has been immeasurably  strengthened by these people,"  he:; said. ?"It has been done  through their dedication to one  common purpose ��� the appropriate and sincerel. observance of  British Columbia's 100th ann..-  versary.  "The success of their achievement was reflected in the way  scores of British Columbians'  journeyed to all' parts of the  province to join in centennial  observances. They returned home  with a greater awareness of their  provinces's heritage and an appreciation for the culture and  beauty of their land.  "AH    of   us   are    profoundly  ' gratef LTi to these volunteer centennial . workers who made 1958  a memorable year in the history  of oar province."  As his, last project of the year,  Lawrie Wallace will prepare a  spd_ial report on the centennial  year for tabling at the next session of the provincial legislature.  Details of the 315 permanent  icentennial projects together with  reports on various centennial entertainments will be reported. A  full financial statement will also-  be included.  To the end of December the  Government had authorized payment of slightly more than $822.-  000.00 for-permanent centennial  projects, and 315 communities  not only matched it dollar for  dollar but ove*reub scribed it  more than io.tr to one bringmg  the estimiated value of the projects to the province to $4,000,-  000.00.  Other- monies sp_-r_t by th_ centennial committee was f<5r a  variety of entei-tainnient offered  throughout the province, and to  assist local celebrations.  In conclusion Mr. Wallace said.  the full value of the centennial  year will not be known for sometime.

This service has frequently broken down due to unfavorable weather conditions, damage to docking facilities and  -labor disputes, causing a great  deal of hardship and inconvenience, loss: of trade and  heavy expenses in charter' of  aircraft, watertaxis etc. for  those who of, necessity must  travel during the ferry shut  down.  In the case of a national  emergency requiring evacuation of great numbers of people to or from the Peninsula ���  the lack of road- connection  would effectively bar such  movements'.  B.C. Highway 99 now extends to Squamish, B.C.  The Sunshine Coast Highway is completed from Port  Mellon to Earl, Cove, there  now remains only to connect  the two highwaylsi to leave road  access from the Peninsula to  Vancouver and thereby to the  entire North American continent.  Completing of this road  would open up country now inaccessible to industrial development and by virtue of its  , scenic beauty draw added  thousands of tourists to this  part of British Columbia enhancing trade and commerce  and providing added employment.  A great urgency for the completion of this connecting link  now exists.  Therefore the provincial  government is requested to  forthwith appropriate the necessary funds to complete the  surveys and construction of a  'highway, linking Port Mellon  arid Sduamish, B.C.
