 JUST  FINE  FOOD  DANNY'S  DINING ROOM  Phone GIBSONS 140  SERVING  THE  GROWING SUNSHINE COAST  Fublished in Gibsons, B.C. Volume  12,  Number   19,  May   7,   1959.  RAY  WHITING  RADIO-CONTROLLED  PHONE      2^0     GIBS0NS  24 HR. COURTEOUS SERVICE  J��__^_T FOREST PRODUCTS SAFETY COMM.TT-.I.  A move to oust the board of  trustees; of St. Mary's Hospital  was defeated at the annual  meeting of the Hospital Society ' at Pender Harbour, April  26.  The board came in for a lot  of criticism, most of which  was* refuted by the chairman,  Al Lloyd. There was criticism  of the administration staff,  over long-overdue accounts being presented for payment  without explanation as to how  they had been incurred.  The climax came when Syd  Macdonnell, who had done  most of "-the criticising, proposed that' the whole board be  voted" out of office, and that  . the society, re-start with a new  ; slate of officers.  This move was countered by  Peter Trappitt, who said far  from deserving such, treatment,  the board merited a vote of  confidence at the hands of the  meeting. He moved an amendment to this; effect.  On the ruling of Magistrate  Andy Johnston, in his capacity as government representative on the board, Mr. Maedon-  nell's resolution, representing  a vote of no-confidence, was  duly presented. Mr. Macdonnell wanted a secret ballot and  Mr. Trappitt objected An important principle was involv-  er, he siaid. The folks, should  be willing to stand up and be  counted.  In the interests of harmony,  the chairman decreed a secret  ballot, with Ned Garvey of  Pender Harbour, and Bob Norminton, of Sechelt acting as  scrutineers. The Macdonnell  resolution was defeated.  Two    board    members,    Al  Lloyd  and    Stuart  Johnstone,  came up for re-election, their  terms of office ,hayi*ng.:;expire,dv  There were four riomihatioiis'::  Harvey   Hubbs,    Selma   Park:  Stuart Johnstone; Al Lloyd and  James Love. Al Lloyd was reelected, and Harvey Hubbs became the new board member.  During    his     address,    the  chairman stressed the necessity  ,. for   long-distance   planning to  meet the requirements for increased  hosjpital   facilities  for  /Howe Sound and   the Sechelt  'peninsula. To this end, he said,  it  was  proposed  to   set up  a  study group selected from   interested parties throughout the  area. The group would  make  an intensive  study of population   trends?    communications,  finances,  and the many  other  factors requiring consideration.  Ultimate    purpose    of    the  study group is to prepare a report for presentation upon formation of a Hospital Improvement   District,   which,    if  ap  proved and authorized, would  be empowered to levy a tax,  based on a small mill rate, to  finance building and equipping  a new hospital in the area considered most desirable It was  necessary that such.a group be  pet up under auspices of the  Hospital  Society.  Dr. Alan Swan, Pender Harbour, gave the meeting a more  detailed outline of the plan.  He prefaced his remarks with  a strong tribute to the work  of the*- hospital board, members  of which he praised as public-  snirifpd citizens who bad voluntarily rendered great ser-;  vice to the hospital and to the  community. Dr. Swan then formally proposed formation of  the study group.  Ben Lang, of Sechelt, presented a proposed slate of members, all of whom were willing volunteers for the project,  which, he stated, would in-*  volve a great deal of .study,  travel, and frequent meetings  over the next 18 months: or so.  The group would operate within the area covered by School  District 46. It represented the  major areas between Port Mellon and Egmont, with power'  to .add to its membership as  occasion warranted.  Unanimous approval wais  given. by the meeting to Dr.  Swan's* resolution, and to the  proposed slate of  members.  The new administrator of  St. Mary's Hospital, Mr. W.  'Milligan, ��� was secretary of the  meeting. Mr. Tony Penley, outgoing administrator was present in an advisory capacity.  Nabs thief  at scene  Sechelt School Board and  Mr. Jeffrey, superintendent of  school*... met in Gibsons, April  27 in the School Board office'  to complete final plans regarding the May 9 referendum.  Harold Wilson of Gibsons  was appointed returning officer and arrangements were  made to appoint district polling  clerks. Polling stations will be  open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at  the following  places:  Vancouver Bay School.  Nelson Island School.  Madeira Park School.  Sechelt  Elementary   School.

The board has been assured  of full co-operation from?,the  many PTA groups in the dis-  of the 1418 pupils registered  in the school' district some 749  ' pupils require transportation  byi either motor bus or water  taxi', or both. ,   .  The purpose of the new  school buildings is to provide  classroom space in' localities  which show the greatest increase in population, and thus  reduce transportation expenses  Since September, 1956, there  has? been an increase in pupils  from 1350 to 1418, mostly in.  the< larger centres, and while  this fincrease is neither sudden  or fclarming, the steady growth  wil"? continue as the district  and surrounding country be-  becbmes more settled.  Better schools* entice better  teachers and encourage parents  to settle in. a community where  modern educational facilities  are available.  The cost of the proposed  building program will increase  taxes about one-third of a mill,  but this small increase will  assure present and future taxpayers of educational facilities  comparable with other districts  in British Columbia.

Mr. Peterson  had a number of photographs  of people and buildings as well  as a very old horse's bit and an  ancient gunshot pouch,  also a  piece of rock  found  at Langdale  by Mrs. McMillan which  would be probably up to 2,000  years   old.   Mr.   Peterson   has  knowledge of many other relics  of the early days in and around  Gibsons and  can obtain  these  relics when a  proper place is  found to house them safely;.

Parker was named a  director of the British Columbia Chamber of Commerce.  The appointment was made  at the annual convention held  in Vancouver at the Georgia  Hotel last week. This is tha  firrt time in the history of the  local board that a member has  been appointed to the provincial group.  At the Sechelt meeting, Mr.  Parker was called on to give  a report on  the general busi  ness conducted at ..the provincial convention.  Magistrate Andrew Johnston  who also attended the Vancouver convention gave a report  to the Sechelt board on the  highway situation as.it affects  the Sunshine Coast. He said  the provincial Chamber of Com  merce is behind local organization efforts to have the Port  Mellon-Squamish highway; link  become a reality. Magistrate  Johnston said the project was  included in the provincial government's ten-year highway  plan.  Big parade  The pace of events leading  towards Sechelt's May Day  parade is increasing now that  the May Day Queen ha�� been  selected. She is Leila McDonald and her attendants will be  Heather Lang and Avril Crucil.  There will be no Indian Queen  this year.  The Kinsmen club of Sechelt  is looking after arrangements  for the big May 18 parade and  entry forms for parade floats  and contests- can - be obtained  from Morgan Thompson of Sechelt Men's Wear.  If this year's parade lives up  to expectations it is forecast  Sechelt will have one of the  best the area has seen. Kinsmen will take charge and members of the club are now lining  up a good display of floats  and entertainment to go along  with them. Parade routes a_  far as present information goes  will be along the main street  from the school area to the Indian   Reserve  school  grounds.  30 voices  for concert  Tickets for the B.C.

[ Vote YES on Saturday  More growing pains!  This time it is the educational facilities we have on the  Sunshine Coast. Expansion is necessary. Costs of transportation  are becoming so heavy it is cheaper to do the same job in another manner. That is why owner-electors of Sechelt School District will vote on Saturday to approve or reject a $211,100 referendum to cover new school facilities.  There is just one conclusion to be drawn from the .action  ���� the school board1 in placing before the voters their need for  more money in order the board can cope with educational needs,  and that conclusion is there is no argument about the necessity.  Looking at it another way, it does show the area population is expanding through natural births and incoming families.  Some $31,000 is required for sites on which buildings can  be placed; $153,000 is required to erect these buildings or additions to present buildings and then $14,500 will be needed to  equip and furnish the new schools and rooms:.  The move to establish schools at Hopkins Landing and  Halfmoon Bay is one which would have to be faced soon, even if  sidetracked for the present. To do the job now and build small  schools in those areas will be cheaper now than if a waiting period intervened because costs are not going to become less than  they! are. Prospects are for,further rises in spite of the cost of  living index mild slips downward recently.  The need for a junior high school at Sechelt has become  evident. Crowding is likely to become more pressing at Elphinstone High school, so establishmentv of a junior high at Sechelt  would relieve this pressure. At present grade eight pupils travel  foy bus to Gibsons. Once the two-room junior high is opened in-  'Sechelt it will mean grade seven will be taken from the elementary school and along with grade eight help start a high school  in Sechelt. This area will most assuredly require one in the coming years and the sooner it is started the better.  Voters of the Sunshine Coast should get out and vote on  the referendum and when they do mark their ballot it should be  marked with an X in the YES box.  Sechelt's fine record  Two weeks ago there was reason for giving the municipal  (touncil of Gibsons a pat on the back for holding the mill rate  :at the previous year's level in spite of rising difficulties. This  week it is Sechelt's turn and to check back on the record Sechelt  has had one mill rate only since a village commission was organized back in 1955.  The first mill rate was set at the beginning of the second  year of the commission's activities and that rate was ten mills.  It has been tlie same for the years that followed and will be the  same for the present tax year.  Until such time as requirements exceed present financial  needs Sechelt taxpayers should be able to rest content with the  type of management they are receiving from the elected village  commission. The commission is now in it�� fifth year and improvements that have taken place in the village in that period reveal  _ wise approach to problems of the village and its future.

A good deal of misunderstanding appears to exist ��� sometimes among people who should  know better ��� as to the meaning of "freedom of the press"  with respect to letters addressed  * to the editor of a newspaper.  Most daily papers and many of  the magazines make space available for expressions of their  readers' views on current topics.  Access to that section of the  paper is a privilege extended  freely; neither the editor nor the  proprietors are under any obligation to turn their columns into a vehicle for* the unsolicited  opinions of others? But within  certain necessary limitations  they do it as an act .of courtesy  and also in the belief that a  newspaper should as. a public  service and within reason assist  in a free discussion of problems  and events of the day.  There is, however, a deep gulf  between privilege and right" and  many of those who try to get  letters into the press either fail  or refuse to see it. It is by no  means uncommon for a letter to'  the editor to be accompanied by  a note "demanding" that it be  published, in full, in the name  of freedom of the press. If for  some reason it is deemed unsuitable for publication (and the  reason is rarely the one.assumed  by the writer of the letter) it  may be followed up with a sneering comment containing such  exclamations as "So much for  freedom  of tht  press!"  To those people it should be  pointed out that freedom of the  press includes freedom not, -si  print as well as to print. No man  has any color of right to space  in a publication printed by someone else, any more that he has  the right to display his wares in  someone else's show window.  What he has subject to the laws <  respecting treason and libel, is  the right to print, and publish  his opinions, but he may not demand tha,t a newspaper publish  them for him.  This is not to say that space  for readers' letters is given  grudgingly or withheld because  they express views contrary to  these of the newspaper itself.  The opposite is the case, as regular readers of the "letters"  columns must' agree. This paper  for one has printed innumerable  letters severely taking it "to task  for this or that, because it is always a reader's privilege to disagree. There are several reasons  for   the   rejection  or abridging  of letters, but all of them we be-  �� lieve to be fair and in conformity  with accepted concepts of freedom of the press.  ���The Victoria Colonist.

All express shipments dbstrred fo_ Madeira  Park and Pender Harbcur may be claimed at  Madeira Park Store,  SECHELT MOTOR TRANSPORT LTD.  G. E. Hopkins, Manager  nt^mBtmrnmammmammmam  An elderly cleryman told1 me  recently that several times in  recent years when about to conduct service the bereaved have  made two requests about the  service; first, that it be sh"'*:  secondly, that it be cheerful  rather than. depressing.  About the length of sermons  the request for brevity is understandable. I have seldom known  anyone who enjoyed long ser-  .mo-is. When a growing boy my  favorite preachers were the  shortwinded kind! and I haven't  changed. If, in my own preaching I have ever been guilty of  long-windedness I here humbly  and abjectly apologize.  IThe second request ��� about  making funeral services comforting,   even    cheerful  is   slightly  surprising. And yet, why should  it be? I think it is natural, especially in the case of those who  have lived  a full life, that the  attention of mourners should be  directed to a wider and deeper  view of the occasion.  *     #     #  One of the most gifted women  of the last century was Harriett  Martineau.   She   was a distinguished   journalist   and   author,  whose counsel was sought by the  leading  parliamentarians of her  generation.   Miss   Martineau became a sceptic  in religion and  published   several   books  which  were termed atheistic.  In accounting for her seepti  cism, Harriett Martineau was  very frank. She wrote: "I find  religious people often just as  worried and unhappy as those  who are irreligious. It seems to  me that if I believed what these  people say they believed, Iwoud  never worry about, anything.  Even death, instead of .being  something to mourn about,  should be an occasion for deep  joy."  I have always felt that Miss  MartineaiUi had a strong case.  Her brother James, was a distinguished clergyman but sh"  said that his friends" were all  too serious; lacking in cheerfulness.  In non-Christian lands death  is invariably marked by what  are often ostentatious displays  of grief which must have had a  depressing, almost unhealthv effect upon the bereaved' and their  friends. Howev_r, we are not  thinkin*? of such people but of  devout ch*u*rch members who are  completely crushed to the ground  when bereavement comes. Apart  from anything else it must make  onlookers feel that religious belief is not a potent factor with  such people.  All visitors to Rome are interested in the -catacombs-; the burying places of the Romans. It is  still possible to see tho epitaphs  written before and after the advent of Christianity. The earlier  ones speak of the dread and apprehension with which even th3  wisest and best regarded death.  They died in fear; here and  there, is a faint hope that in the  worM to ��om*> life might not be  ���wholly ill. The words, "Forever  Farewell" occur frequently.  The advent of the Christian  era is marked' by a complete reversal in the tone of the epitaphs, to the early Christians th.j  place Gf interment was no longer  a tomb but a sleeping place. Repeatedly the glorious, deathless  hope is expressed: "Laid to rest  in the sure and certain hope of  a glorious resurrection." In literally hundreds of cases the note  cf hope was triumphant; death  had besn robbed of its sting and  the grave of its victory.  I believe th? tone of funeral  services has vastly improved during recent years. I have often  'beer, deeply touched by the tenderness and wisdom of officiating clergymen. They have endeavoured to cm-fort and heal  and that is all to the good.  Canadian birthrate runs 10  percent ever that of the U.S.,  helping to people this somewhat  vaclant nation. No expert is  needed to see that this populating process, plus continued immigration, is a key to a more  prosperous future for Canada.  -  SECHELT THEATRE  FRI., SAT. ��� MAY 8 & 9  JOHN WAYNE ��� SOPHIA LORSN  "Legend of the Lost"  TECHNICOLOR  MON., TUES��� MAY 11 & 12  CARY GRANT ��� SOPHIA LOREN  "Houseboat"  TECHNICOLOR  WED., THURS. ��� MAY 13 & 14  DOUBLE FEATURE  JUNE KENNY ��� JOHN AGAR  ' Attack of the Puppet People'  PLUS  SALLY FRASER ��� DEAN PARKIN  "War of Colossal Beast"  It's here in our town!

Logan in Yukon Territory, has  an elevation "of 19,850 feet.  424 fires at same time iri'5  PLANTS  Throughout' the length and  breadth of British Columbia, the  decks are being cleared in preparation for the province's annual war against fire.  On May 1, the 1959 Forest Fire  Season officially came into b^-  ing. The memory of last year's  disastrous season is still fresh  in the minds of the Forest Service's 110 rangers as they bring  their fire suppression organizations to fighting trim. Even  snow-ploughing figures in this  fight with fire.  The most widespread and immediate effect of the .start of  this new fire season is .that afJ  fter midnight, April 30, burning  and campfire psrmits must be  obtained by the general public  and industrial operations before  they can. light a fire for any purpose within one-half mile of a  forest or wood land. Permits  are issued free of charge by  Forest Service officers, R.C.M.P.,  post offices, and many other  outlets throughout the province.  By the time last season was  officially terminated at midnight  Oct. 16, 4,120 forest fires had '  roared through the Province's  "green gold;" over 2,000,000  acres of forest and non-forest  land had been burned over; the  Forest Service had spent a staggering $7,600,000 for fire prevention and suppression and the  forest industries had laid out an  additional $1,800,000 of their  own money for the same purpose..  At one period last year, 424  fires were raging throughout  the province on the same day  and some 4.000 men were.On the  fire-lines. During-the.first week  of August, fire-fighting": costs of  tho Forest Service were averaging $100,000 per day!  Industrial and travel closures  of the woods became a familiar  phenomena during* the summer  of 1958. A total ��� of 42, closures  of different types were imposed,  during the season. At one period,  from July 17 to August 4, the  entire B*C. -coast area, from th���  International border to the Alaska Panhandle was . c^pletelv  closed to industry and travel  for the first time since 1951.  The valeu of timber d^stroved  has been estimated as being between  $50,000,000  and  $70,000,-  000. 'The  exact figure will probably never be known.  At each of the Forest Ranger  SAFETY COURSE  An intensive, week-long  training course in accident prevention will be held June .1-5  ���at the University of Britiisth  ���Columbia campus. The course  is sponsored by the B.C. Safety ;  Council and the U.B.C. Extension Department in co-operation with the Workmen's Compensation Board.  iwi wmmm*M* a *waw*tm*Mn*i  stations, the serious business of  preparing for another season has  been under- way for the last several weeks./  Fire-fire   organization   involves  many   things.    First  of  all  the  seasonal staff of assistant rangers,     despatchers,     lcokoutmen,  patrolmen,     launch     engineers,  and so forth, must be examined,  hired, trained  and intructed   in  their duties. The ranger must also contact and appoint the honorary fire wardens and fire prevention  officers for his district.  The mass of firefighting equipment stored at each station, must  be   checked,   repaired,   brought  up  to first-class  condition. This  includes  the   hand-tank   pumps,  shovels,     axes,     Pulaski     tools,  timekeepers'  books and first-aid  kits;  portable  fire  pumps   must  be    checked    and   tested   under  pressure.    Any    defective   parts  must be replaced.  Also, the ranger must see to*  it that all the miles of trails,  jeep reads, and other possible  fire-access routes in his district  are cleaned out and made passable for their vital role of getting fire-fighting crews to the  fire  with a minimum of delay.

LETTERS  to editor  Editor: It was interesting to  read in your paper of the Black  Ball appreciation of the Sun*  shine Coast. There certainly  are many beauty spots which  are worthy of appreciation but  it is a pity they did not mention Gibsons' Gospel Rock,  which in itself is a fine piece  of rock sculpture, having been  rounded by glacial action and  forms a fine viewpoint of an  entrance to Howe Sound with  Keats Island backed by the  Coast Range. The foreground  is well studded with arbutus  trees.  Alas however, thie one of  Gibsons treasures; is being befouled aa a rubbish dump with  cartons, tin cans and worst of  all one rock is littered with  broken glass.  There  are not  many  towns  can boast of so near a beauty  spot only a few minutes walk  from   its   centre.   One   would  like to see some effort for  it  to be cleaned up. Not knowing  if any'one   can   be  responsible  .for this I will offer to start a  fund with $5 for any youth organization   under   supervision,  for it to be tidied up and then  perhaps   as  some one has  already dumped some soil more  could be given to cover up the  rubbish.   Nature   would    then  cover it with her bounty. As  I do not know the owners of  the  property   no   doubt   they  would approve and appreciate  this suggestion.  A.C. Dalton.
