She .had been gone only a few  minutes when the entire ceiling  of the living room burst into  f.ame-.. Sharon's first thought  was'if-r h2r baby sister, asleep  in ah adjoining room. Dashing  in, she snatched up the child,  and [barely escaped the house  before the whole room was  a.blajze.  Mrs. Silvey came out of the  post office to see her home a  mass of flames. Her husband  wa$; away at the time.  Neighbors were on the scene  quickly with available fire extinguishers but efforts to save  the; building were in vain. Adding to the misfortunes of the  family!, Silvey's fishing boat  had been beached for repairs.  All j his tools, together with the  boat repair lumber and hardware, were stored beneath the  house, and were destroyed  with the rest of the household  goods.

The choir while not as large  as it was expected to be did  nobly with the selections. The  contralto section should have  had a number all to itself because it sounded fine along  with the other sections of the  choir. Constance Busby who  sang the contralto solo, the  Kerry Dance and a Sailor song  had a fine voice, and created  greater appreciation when hitting high notes without losing  '  volume cr quality.  Campbell Buchanan, bass,  sang a Romberg melange followed with I Believe. John Wil  liams, whose fine Welsh voice  stirred the audience sang  Mandalay and the Welsh number, Home.  - Mr. Norminton 'introduced  the choir which was conducted  by Leslie Monk. Jack D.B. Ei-  lis was accompanist on the  piano. Rev. David Donaldson  thanked the choir on behalf of  the audience which showed its  delight of the performance  with hearty applause. The event was sponsored by the Evening "Circle of Gibsons United  Church W.A.  SINCLAIR BAY ROAD  Construction is to start im-  mediatey on a new road linking Sinclair Bay with Garden  Bay. This road will serve some  SO families and when completed will connect up with the  road to Irvines Landing and  will shorten the distance between the landing and Garden Bay by some two miles.  O A P meeting  The social afternoon of the  Old Age Pensioners May 4 decided in view-of the fact the  third Monday of-this month is  a holiday, the next regular  meeting will be held one week  later at 2 p.m. Monday, May  25. Members will please make  a note of this change. An interesting meeting is planned  which will deal with important.  matters in preparation for the  convention to" be held next  month at Mission  Auxiliary of the Legion swung  into immediate action to collect donations of clothing, furnishings and other necessaries.  A fund has been started at  Legion Headquarters, Madeira  Park. The Silvey family is at  present being cared for at the  home of Stan Silvey's parents.  Stan is a veteran of World  War II, with overseas service.  He   served   with   the   Rocky  Mountain Rangers and with the  Saskatchewan Regiment, anfi  was wounded in action. He belongs to a pioneer B.C. family,  his* grandfather being one of  the earliest settlers on the site  of what was to become the city  of Vancouver, then known as  Gastown. His first homesite  was practically on the same  site upon which the 9 o'clock  gun now stands.  Second home destroyed  For the second time in a  week in the Pender Harbour  area, fire left in its wake a  dwelling totally destroyed and  a family homeless.  ��� On Sunday afternoon, fire,  believed caused by a sudden  downdraft in the oil range,  broke out in the home of William Malcolm, fisherman, of  Churchill Bay, at .the south end  of Francis Peninsula. Both parents were absent, Mrs. Malcolm receiving medcal attention at St. Mary's Hospital  while Mr. Malcolm was attending the Pentecostal Church at  Madeira Park. Their four  daughters were left in the care  of Linda, their 17-year old  daughter.  Linda was resting* in the  house when she became aware  of the smoke. Her first thought  v.-a_. fcr hsr two-year old brother, whom she carried to safety. The remaining children  were playing outside.  At the Community Hall, Madeira Park, a meeting was in  progress, to consider proposals  for formation of a district water supply. News of the fire  broke upon the deliberations  and every able-bodied man  clashed   for   the   exits.   Within  minutes a convoy of cars was  roaring towards the fire. The  local branch of the Forestry  department also had fire-fighters on the scene under Ranver  George McKinnon with conv  mendale promptitude.  Despite an ample supply of  water, all efforts were m vain;  the blaze, fanned by> a westerly  gale, was entirely out of control aiVd the house was completely gutted. The property is  only partially covered b:�� insurance.  The local branch of the Canadian Legion was on hand  promptly with emergency financial ascii-tance. Mr. Malcolm  served overseas during the  Second World War and saw  plenty of action with the Sea-  forth   Highlanders.  Mr. and Mrs. Malcolm are  now being cared for at the  home of Rev. Walter and Mrs.  Ackroyd of the Madeira 'Pentecostal church It is expected  that friends and neighbors will  offer their assistance with donations cf clothing, furnishings  and finances. All such dona-  tios should be addressed to the-  Malcolms care of the Pentecost--  tal Tabernacle at Madeira  .- Park.  Gravelling beforepaving?  Possibility of cancelling "this  year's paving program and replacing it with a gravelling  program was discussed at Tues  day night'*, meeting of Gibsons  village commission.  Reason for the proposed cancellation of the paving program would be because of the  ���Tr*-**h'bitive cost of small paving jobs due 'to the expense of  bringing in . the necessary  equipment. Experience has  shown that it would require a  fairly substantial amount of  paving to make the project economical. The matter was left  over for further consideration.  Tender for the laying of a  sewer in the post office and  Shell Oil area was awarded  Jack Preuss of Gibsons. Plumbing for a total of $550. The  work is to 'comply with the  new plumbing bylaw and must  be done within a one month  period. The sewer, applied for  by property owners in that vicinity will serve present store  properties.  Sprinkling   regulations   will  be applied during   June,  July  and  August,   similar   to   regulations of previous  years.  #. _  Cbmmisoioner Adams' was  appointed to replace C.!?. Ballentine, retired, as commission  representative on the recreation committee.  A complaint that speeding  occurred on the School rd. wa?  considered by the commissioners who passed the matter on  tc the RUMP with a copy -.of  the complainant'-? letter to g'O  along with a letter from the  village   commission.  Accounts ordered paid totalled $473.59 of which $27&J72  was for roads, $179.03 for fire  protection and $4.78 for water.  Commissioners diocussed the  present noticeable taste from  drinking water and Robert  Burns, clerk, reported it was  probably caused by alge'a" at  the dam, which will be cleared  up.  Building permits were granted Einar Bergen for two $6,000  homer.. Each would have four  rooms and would be on Dougal  Rd.  The plumbing bylaw was giv  en final reading and becomes  effective July 1. This means  all plumbing installations must  comply with the bylaw.  Ballet expert to judge  HEADS LIBERAL WOMEN  Mrs. A.E. Hunt, Soames  Point, was elected president of  the British Columbia Women's  Liberal Association at a convention held in Victoria.  North America is becoming  increasingly" conscious of ballet. Dame Margot Fonteyn recently became an international  figure in the news and a young  Vancouver woman, Lynn Seymour, dancing in Swan Lake  with the famous Royal Ballet,  took Covent Garden by storm.  The Bolshoi Ballet, playing in  New York, has lifted 'dance  fervour as high as a Nijinsky  leap.  A wave of dance enthusiasm  promises to wash into our own  community with the Arrival  shortly in Gibsons of Miss Peggy Whitelyi from London, England, and examiner for the  Royal Academy of Dancing.  One of nine new Canadian centres for the Academy, Gibsons  is being- visited this year, for  the first time, by the official  examiner.

One thought can be taken from the vote and it is this: If  the ratio of yes and no votes would have continued right to the  last voter, the 78 percent majority, 564 yes votes to 159 no votes,  _4 would have been a fine vindication of the school board attitude towards requirements. On this basis the school board should  _>e pleased with the result' while not necessarily happy about the  size of the actual vote.  How to get the voter out is an age old problem but those  people who did come out and vote on the $211,100 school referendum can feel they! have done their duty not only for themselves  Suit also for the area and those people who were so negligent they  did not think it worthwhile to get out and express their own  -spinion.  -Democracy is an active principle and if it is not worthwhile supporting by plaicing on X a ballot when such is required,  the type of future facing the populace is not one that should  (create cheers.

The objectors, while  complaining bitterly about possible interference with freedom  of speech and the liberty of the press, offer ho alternative. Tf  their arguments are sound then any depraved creature should  fee left free to produce the lowest demoralizing literature without let or hindrance.  There is no logic or common sense to thisi argument. The  iarmer who would have a good crop must destroy the weeds  which would otherwise destroy the results of his labor. The physician who would have the whole pharmaceutical armamentarium at his service must see to it that the free use of certain drugs  such as morphine, is forbidden to the public. The general use of  unpasteurized milk is forbidden in civilized communities because  xaw milk mayj spread disease, in spite of the fact that milk is  a good food.  It is said that a man is what he eats. Similarly, what a man  thinks is generally determined by what he reads. Tolstoy once  said that no writing is. great writing unless it has a social objective. If writers and publishers'are sincere in ther expressed desire to promote the writing of good literature then they, and  Mat the long-suffering public, should be demanding some sort of  oensorship or regulation.  It is not necessarily true that good literature will drwe  -acr-i bad literature, as some people say. We suggest that a�� in  ���tne case of Gresham's Law, which in the field of economics state/  that bad money will drive out good'1 money, so bad literature  will drive out good literature.

With the arrival of the United  Empire Loyalists from the rebelling American -colonies, the  need for episcopal ministrations  increased, and in 1787, Charles  Inglis, himself an Empire Loyalist, was consecrated Bishop of  Nova Scotia. $  What Is the Origin of th2  Word Muskeg?"  Muskeg is a word used in Canada for a low, wet area (generally with a considerable depth  of "organic matter) such as is  found at many places in the Canadian Shield. The word is derived from the Chippewa "mus-  kig," meaning a grassy bog. The  term used for it in French is  "savane." The muskeg proves an  obstacle in many engineering  projects, and considerable precautions have to be ta__en in the  construction of railways and  roads in such bog-like areas of  Canada.

Long before pity, or  sympathy, or the desire to help,  I would feel shame. And so  should we all. We should all be  ashamed, not only that they  starve in Asia, but that we let  them. It must be difficult for  most Canadians to imagine even  what it is like to be empty, not  ence to have had a fill of food  Yet millions of Asians know that  feeling well and we continue to  allow it to happen.  In Canada most people consider it an adventure to sleep  out of doors. But in Indian cities,  the great majority do it, not because they want to, but because  they must. They have nothing  else to do and nowhere else to  go.  It is useless and a bit ridiculous for Canada to try to compete for the leadership in defence. If we could catch up, we  could never keep apace of larger  nations and we should not want  to.  If an atomic war should come  and we prepare to meet it with  our pitiful, . obsolete-before-  they're-finished weapons, we are  doomed. Since that is th 3 situation, why not, in the, time left <*-  to us, do some good and combine sense with humanity to help  starving people? Instead of  spending $1,700,000,000 on defence, we should be using that  money to feed millions of hungry  people.  If we refused to spend money  on defence, we might influence  the larger powers to follow our  lead. We are a small country  war-wise; so if we all alone could  spend the one and three-quart- .  ers of a billion dollars helping  Asians, the other larger nations  could spend many times that  sum.

Our celebrations, while  perhaps not being on a large  enough scale to attract a gre_-��  deal of outside interest, did  create interest in our own community and helped to bring  about the 100 percent co-operation which brought about the  realization    of   our   ambition.
