Mr. Melville was chief speaker  at the dinner held in the Legion hall. Mrs. Garry was caterer.

Directors include  Tom Lamb, Gerry MacDonald,  Jack Mayne, Roy Greggs, Harvey Hubbs, Fred Jorgenson  and Andy Johnston.  Discussing British Columbia's future from a population,  communication��, energy resources and industry point of  view, Mr. Melville opened his  remarks by emphasizing the  future depended on a well-informed people. That was. the  only) means by which we can,  in the third largest province in  Canada, with some big prob  leme, lick those same problems-  Whatever has happened in  British Columbia has been  done by people.

Our scenery, another resource, was amazing and should be of great  value to develop the tourist industry. As regards other resources, mining, logging and  fishing he pleaded for further  diversification. If we want to  maintain our integrity, he said  it wasi our responsibility to develop the vast natural resources we have in British Columbia.  From the recent Gordon report in Canadian economy he  quoted the part which stated  British Columbia population  by 1975 would be double what  it is today.

There will be  free bus transportation provided from Port Mellon and Sechelt leaving etach point a|t  7:45 p.m.  Gibsons Village Commission  has drawn the attention of department of education officials  to the situation arising as' the  result  of  present   government  operations     connected      with  school financing.  . The' letter, written by Robert Burns, village clerk, explains to the department how  the present situation is working af hardship on municipalities.   \  Here is a copy of the letter  to Hon. L.R. Peterson, minister of education:  Sir:. Our council March 11  met with delegates from the  board of . trustees, Sechelt  School Disrict No. 46, to consider /budget requirements of  the school district for the current year. Despite a 9.8% increase over 1958, careful and  detailed study of the estimates  did not reveal any item which  could, reasonably   be   reduced  without seriously affecting our  school standards. A major part  of the increase over the past  year is caused by increase in  scale of teachers' salaries, over  which the school board has little actual control, it being necessary to pay a scale comparable to other parts of the province to obtain teachers with  certification required by your  departmental regulations  Other items of cost seem to  be about on a par with the increased enrollment, and quite  clcse to the rise in assessment  of the district, reflecting the  growth.  Howevr, despite the higher  taxable assessment, the overall  9.8% increase in total school  costs appear�� likely to mean  approximately a 25% increase  in mill rate levy for school  taxes. This anomaly results  from the arbitrary reduction  in the scale of assistance by  your  department,   both  actual  and percentagewise. Perhaps,  influenced by statements em-.  anating from the treasury department, and other Victoria  sources, the public generally  believes that your department  carries 50% or more of the  total school costs. If this were  true we would have little complaint, as our mill rate would  work out to about the same as  last year, increased assessmerii  taking care of the generally  increased costs. However, the  expected financial help from  your department works out at  about 38.3%, rather than 50%,  which explains, at least in pa*:  why local taxpayers are facec.  with a 25% jump in mill rate  to meet a 9.8% increase ir.  costs. Our council therefore  urges) reconsideration by your  department and the adoption  of a policy more in line with  the apparent intention of the  School Act.  Robert Burns, Clerk.  Hurry!

R. Morrison)  The dominant note of Easter is hope. It is a festival of  rejoicing, as Good Friday is a day of sadness and painful memories.  ���Earth's saddest and gladdest days are but one day apart.  The most convincing proof of the resurrection of Jesus Christ is  the spiritual power that stirred and throbbed and thrilled in  the Apostolic Church. That was the refrain of hundreds of sermons by the apostles. That was the source of their power. One  of the clamant needs of the modern church and of modern people is a rediscovery of the risen Christ in all His pristine glory.  The world needs to recapture the vision of the risen  Christ. The knowledge that after the experience we call death  life passes on into full fruition in the fellowship of Christ, is  the best reason of all for living nobly in the here and now.  Dostoyevskjr, the Russian author, toward the end of his  life divided the race into two classes ��� those who believed in  the eternal life and those who did not. And he added that the fate  of civilization will rest upon the citizens of eternity. And why  not? For they are the only people in this bewildered and frustrated world who can build for the future with hope in their  hearts. They have something to live for. Life for them is not  meaningless. It is not frustration.  In this atomic age we are in desperate need of hope that  is something more than an empty promise.  The mood of multitudes of people in our dayi is similar  to that of the disciples following the crucifixion. They are disillusioned, bewildered and anxious for the future. A philosopher  said recently "The generation sits by the side of the road and  helplessly drop their hands. They look worn and vacant. There  is darkness ahead, darkness behind and darkness within, mean-  inglessly, aimlessly, above endless marshland dance the will-o-  the wisps of science."  Fifty years ago intellectuals were crying out that science  should be forced from the domination of religion. Today every  thoughtful individual is living in dread of the results of scientific research. They are now becoming afraid lest the god science  at whose shrine they worshipped so long may turn out to be a  Frankenstein who will hurl humanity into bottomlesis void.  Every, gift that science offers to man can be misused if we  so choose. Even the radio carrying words on the wings of the  wind at 186,000 miles per second can spread falsehood as easily  as truth, can spread hate as readily as love, can spread ill will  and suspicion, as well as understanding, and the spirit of brotherhood.  So, this Easter we seek once again to recapture that glow  that throbbed in the Christian Church on that first Easter morning. Wherefore, bring to Him your fears, your discouragements,  your temptations, your loneliness and the grief that you hide  away in your heart.  Bring these to Him, and He will make you whole. He will  put a new song on your lips, and He will put new hope in your  eyes, and He will rekindle the visions that have almost died in  your heart, so that life will become a joyous comradeship, with  the risen Christ and at eventide you shall turn your faces to the  jhaven of home to be forever with Him.  In the days of the last war a young soldier was left dying*  on the battlefield. As life slowly came back he thirsted for water.  There was no one to dress his wounds and he lay there from Good  Friday until Easter morning. When Allied planes passed overhead he tried to sit up and wave his arms to attract attention.  Constantly he prayed for relief from pain. His prayer was answered, for he slipped off into merciful unconsciousness. When he  ���awoke he was in a hospital bed, and a chaplain was bending over  him..  You say, my boy, that you were wounded on Good Friday  and that you have been lying on the battlefield ever since! Do  you know this is Easter morning. "Yes, sir," replied the lad. "For  me too it is the resurrection. Out there lying on the field, I died  a thousand deaths, but somehow we do not mind the Crucifixion  when we are sure of the Resurrection."  May this Easter season find a frustrated, restless, sick  world taken into Christ's pierced hands and lifted to the very  heart of God.  ADVERTISEMENT  Why Give the Burglar  An Engraved Invitation!  "You might as well give a burglar an engraved invitation to help himself at your house, if you leave valuables  lying about," says Ted Henniker, manager of the Bank of  Montreal's Gibsons Branch.  Mr. Henniker adds that behind the steel doors of a  B of M vault is the safest place for valuables such as bonds,  leases, stock certificates, insurance policies, deeds, birth certificates, passports and other important family documents.  "It costs less than two cents a day to rent a B of IMC  safety deposit box," he says, and explains that hundreds of  thousands of Canadians use B of M safety deposit facilities,  an indication of the popularity of this service. "It pays for  itself again and again in peace of mind alone," he says.  "Give the burglar a brush-off at your house," Mr. Hen  ���oiker advises. "Keep your valuables in your personal strong  box ��� it's exclusively yours ���in, the Gibsons B of M vault.  Drop in soon and see Mr. Henniker about renting a  safety deposit box it will set your mind at rest.

"Sir William Osier used  to say that 'money invested in  a library gives much better returns than mining stock.' But it  is pretty clear where Canadians  put all their investments. A  famous editor once wrote 'Canada has the money, but would  rather spend it on whisky than  on books.' Naturally we know  Canadians must spend money on  other things than books and libraries, but our aim is to improve the lamentable situation  of reading in Canada with an active "Wake Up and Read" campaign."

The American Telephone and  Telegraph Company, with  other companies and governmental agencies, is now engaged in the construction of telephone cable systems between  United States and Europe and  the U.S. and Puerto Rico.  In addition to the brightly  painted areas on its, top, the  buoy hat several other features  which help ship captains to  spot it. A brightly colored flag  is mounted about eight feet  above the buoy that helps to  locate it in the daytime, navigational lights make it visible  at night, and a reflector provides a means of detection by  ships equipped with radar.  Buoys used to anchor submarine cable are constructed  of high grade boiler steel. They  weigh 1V& tons and can support  six tons of moorings.

The 100th anniversary of the  birth of the Red Cross idea will  be commemorated in 1959.  ffiS/**-*-*^* \      GIANT BINS!  A new.two-door hardtop sport  coupe has been added to the Bel  Air series of Chevrolets, General  Motors of Canada announces.  GM officials said the sport  coupe will complement the Bel  Air Sport Sedan, introduced  earlier this year, and will make  available both two- and four-door  hardtop models in Chevrolet's  moderate price range.  Previously, two- and four-door  hardtops were available only in  Chevrolet's top-line Impala  series.  "An overwhelming number of  1959 car buyers are demanding  a    distinctive   hardtop   styling,"  said a spokesman for General  Motors. "The introduction of the-  Bel Air Sport Coupe, a two-door  hardtop in the more moderate  price range, has been made to  meet this demand."  The   sport   coupe   is    distinguished by the absence of side  pillars. Side windows  roll com-  GIBSONS  THURS.

Things that influence  car insurance costs  Inevitably, automobile insurance rates must go up or down depending on whether the  claims being paid are going up or down. In the long run, the money paid out to settle  claims and to run the business cannot continually exceed the amount of money collected in premiums.  In recent years, practically all the things which determine how much money has to be  paid out have been increasing. Here are some of them:  The Cost of Cars ��� The $2,000 car of yesterday has become the  $3,000-$4,000 car of today. And even a "low price" car may smash another  vehicle costing much more. The cost of insurance must always be related to  the cost of repair or replacement.  _b Tlie Styling of Cars ��� The modern car has many improvements  over the car of yesterday ��� all costing money. Wrap-around windshields  improve visibility, but cost five times as much to replace when broken.  Power steering improves handling, but is expensive to repair. One-piece  body units eliminate rattles but skyrocket replacement costs. In cost of parts  alone, the repair bill that must come out of insurance premiums is more than  double that of yesterday.  <__t The Cost oi Repairs ��� Quite aside from parts, the average garage  repair bill is far higher than it used to be, because the garage's costs have  gone up also and the garage repairman gets a higher rate of pay than he  used to ��� as do most Canadians today.  Increased Medical Costs ��� Hospitals, too, must charge higher rates  today than they used to ��� and once again this cost must come out of the  car insurance premium. Other medical costs are similarly increased.  5 The Costs ol "Lost Time" ��� Canadians generally, are drawing considerably higher incomes than they used to. That means that the costs of  keeping an accident victim off work until his injuries are healed are substantially increased. This is another cost which has to come out of the  premium.  6 The Number oi Accidents ��� Naturally, the cost of car insurance is  greatly affected by the number of accidents in relation to the number of cars  insured. Thanks to the efforts of many people, this ratio of accidents has  started to go down ��� only moderately down as yet, and not nearly enough  to offset all the costs which have been going up. Nevertheless, this trend  toward a lower accident ratio ��� a trend we all can assist by careiul driving  ��� probably holds the best hope of all for keeping auto insurance costs down  in the future.

Booklet  outlines  meat industry  A 32-page two color booklet  on the Canadian Meat industry which has just been published by the Meat Packers  Council of Canada, presents for  the first time a graphic and  comprehensive picture of the  development and operation of  one of the country's leading industries.  Beginning with the early settlers who relied on wild-life  for their meat the story traces  the industry's progress from  the first Canadian packing  plant built in 1854 in Toronto  up to the present time.  "Today meat processing is  ranked the fifth among industries in Canada and the importance of telling the story of  its role in the nation's economy and health has long been  overdue," says E.S. Manning,  managing director of the council. "We believe the brochure  will serve a useful purpose and  will prove both informative  and educational."  Initial distribution of the  brochure has been provided  for schools, libraries, extension workers, home economists  livestock organizations, 4-H  Clubs and other interested  groups.  Do not strike  R.E. Wilkins, P.Eng., president of the Association of Professional Engineers of B.C., has  issued the following statement  concerning government employ  ed professional engineers, in  connection with the publicized  strike action by provincial civil servants:  All professional engineers in  British Columbia, including  those employed by the provincial government, are subject to  a strict code of ethics administered by this association under  the Engineering Profession act.  Tliis code prohibits strike action because a professional en-  gmer's first responsibility is to  the public. For this reason, in  common with the other learned professions they are specifically exempt from, the provisions of the Labour Relations  act.  Professional engineers employed by the province belong  to a professional group known  as the B.C. Government Employee Group of Professional  Engineers, which deals directly with the employer on matters of remuneration and welfare. 8 Coast News, March 26, 1959  Guaranteed    Watch   &  Jewelry Repairs  Chris* Jewelers  Mail Orders Given Prompt  Attention  Work done on the Premises  Phone Sechelt 96  EXPERT  ATTEN FI  TO  OUTBOARD   &  INBOARD MOTORS  SOLNIK'S  SERVICE STATION  Sechelt Highway  GIBSONS 220K  SALES & SERVICE  FOR  NEW McCULLOUGH  CHAIN SAWS  Self Oiling  SCOTT-ATWATER  OUTBOARD MOTORS  Sechelt  Lockers  NEVER  CONSISTENTLY  UNDERSOLD!

Tlie club was formed five  weeks ago by Frank Zantolas,  long a prcfcninent figure in  Port Mellon boxing of past  years. His assistants, Ted Hume  Dan Bergnach and Bob Wilson  all have past ring experience  and are qualified for this type  of work. Workouts, are held  every Thursday night at 7:30  in the Port Mellon Community  Hall and those interested will  be more than welcome.  Saturday night's show opened fast with a free-swinging  battle between Grant Monroe  and Ricky Brady, both 10, both  of Port Mellon.  Tne second bout brought together two tall 15-year-olds,  from Gibsons, Wally Venechuk  and Howard Kinne. The latter  showed real promise with a  two-fisted attack that kept  Venechuk untracked most of  the fight but Wally proved he  was game. With a little more  experience he will be tough  to handle.  Steve Macklam and Bob  Crosby, 9 and 8 respectively;  of Port Mellon, clashed in the  evening's third scrap. The wild  swinging Macklam carried the  fight most of the way although  the more cautious Crosby dis*-  Help for  tired feet  The Pacific National Exhibition is going to do something  about its "tenderfoot" visitors.  They will be able to tour the entire 174 acres of Fair grounds  witihout giving a thought to those  aching feet of past years.  The PNE this year will have  a trackless train service that  will reach from one en(d of the  park to the other. Small trains  have proved" their popularity at  several large amusement and exhibition parks in Canada and  the U.S. Outstanding examples  are the Canadian National Exhibition and Disneyland.  The PNE's trackless trains  will stop at ar.jj** point along the  route to allow passengers to get  off. Main depot will be near the  Forum.  The trains will have the curious mechanical faculty of following in their own footsteps.  When the engine makes a turn  the trailing carriage will not cut  corners to follow. They will continue on to the point where the  engine makes the turn before  duplicating the maneuver.  TRADE  CONFERENCE  The Hon. R. W. Bonner, Q.C,  minister of industrial development, trade, and commerce announces an Industrial and Trado  Conference will be held May 11  and 12 at the University of British Columbia.  The conference, sponsored by  the department of industrial development, trade, and commerce  will be the first of its kind to  be held in British Columbia.  played a stinging sneak right  that slowed young Steve down  a little.  Next came heavyweights  Ray; Puchalsi, aged 5 and Pat  Keogh, age 7 in a battle that  brought the house down. Both  boys seemed oblivious of the  big crowd as they battled toe  to toe for three rounds.  Dennis Mulligan, 12, of Gibsons, and Rocky Zantolas, 11  of Port Mellon met head on in  the fifth bout. This was a real  battle between two good looking young fighters,. They fought  in wild flurries at times but  otherwise displayed good ring  pohze for beginners ,  In the wind-up Bruce Wilson  met  plucky little   Gene  Pearl  in a real slug-fest The 13-year-  old Wilson is another excellent  young prospect although little  Pearl proved to be quite a  handful as he fought back fur.  iously whenever in trouble.  After the final bell, master  of ceremonies Joe O'Brian  called all the boys into the ring  and the big crowd gave them  a well deserved standing ovation  The show proved to be an  unqualified success and most  of the credit must go to Mr.  Zantolas who is forming a club  the 'Peninsula has lacked for  so long.  A second card is planned for  the near future. Time and  place will be announced later.  Port Mellon news notes  By   Mrs. J.  Macey  Mr. and Mrs. W. W.

They pulled oars, hauled  long lines and mended nets.  Their boats sank or were hammered to splinters in rain-  thick darkness and many never saw port lights again. But  they always went out once  more, these rough and gallant  fishermen, always with the  dream of hitting the big  school."  This quotation from the fore  word of a new Superior "This  Was" picture history, "Fish  and Ships," sets the tone and  temper of a book in every way  as gallant as the men and  tasks it   portrays.  The scene is the North Pacific from the Columbia River  to.Bristol Bay. There are two  authors and they know what  they are about. A.K. Larssen  is one of those who sang the  song of free men, a fisherman  in Norway and Pacific waters  and a writer of the life he has  lived. Ralph W. Andrews is  long skilled in this picture  book technique, having five to  his credit in the logging and  seafaring fields.  With rare and revealing photographs, many never before  published, these men present  the commercial fishing story  from the viewpoint of the men  themselves. From primitive Indian methods, early beach and'  horse seining, the photos range  to the salteries, canneries and  traps in the cod, halibut and  salmon industries* and including whaling and sealing. The  tales of ships and men are  equally vivid in depicting the-  stark reality of the lonely'v_:  gilsi and sheer courage in calm  seas  and rough.

The program was opened by  the Sechelt accordion band  with several rousing numbers,  followed by recitations, piano  solos and duets that were well  received by an enthusiastic  audience. The lively dancing  of the junior and senior square  dancing groups left the crowd  in a toe-tapping mood, and a  well trained campfire group  singing songs was the contribution of the Sechelt Cub pack  under their leader Gerry  Fahrni.  Dianne McDonald performed  her tap and acrobatic dances  in her finished style, and Roberta Postelthwaite, as Madam  Uproar, caused quite an uproar  with her novelty renditions; of  "Songs that Linger" accompanied by some very hilarious  dancing. The Wilson Creek  Children's choir and the Chor-  aliers under the direction of  H. Roberts were much enjoyed.  Wendy Yates, gold medallist,  added a touch of drama by reciting The Highwayman, and  received thunderous applause  from the entranced audience.  The Great Magical Act was a  splendid spoof whem Morris  Hemstreet chopped Jim Plum-  ridge in half, much to the excitement and joy of the younger children in the audience.  At the close of the program  George Page, the genial master  of ceremonies thanked Mrs.  Critchell for taking charge of  the concert and for her hard  work and advice, and then  called on Mrs. Pearl Tyson,  the PTA president. Mrs. Tyson  explained the use of the moneys made by the PTA and then  presented Mr. J. Strachan, tlie  school principal with a cheque  for new uniforms for the  school band.  The children taking part  were Ruby and Uenda Stroshein, Corky Parsons, Merilee  Fahrni, Heather Lang, Myona  Stro_iihein, Dianne McDonald,  Carole Kennedy, Phyllis Tyson, Peter Hemstreet and children in the Wilson Creek choir  and Accordion Band.

Future  population would have to  cpread out in such areas as  Peace River, Cariboo and  other areas.  Communications concerned  roads, pipe and power lines  and Mr. Melville regarded  Mr. Bennett's $100,000,000 for  roads yearly for the next ten  years as not enough. Roadli*  were a means of increasing  populations and where roads-  were established there the people settled. Gas pipe-lines and  the PGE railway he regarded  as definite constructive efforts  for the development of the  ���province.  Our oil, gas and coal resources are hardly tapped, he  said, adding that energy, meaning power to produce, and our  resources coupled with the fact  we are a seaboard province  places us in an advantageous  position because our products  can be laid down with ease at  any point in the world.  Our electric power consumption is a tremendous problem  for the future. The story of  the Columbia river and power  was one of procrastination and  our friend�� to the south who  delayed the St. Lawrence waterway project for some 30  years have also delayed the  Columbia project. If the river  problem had been settled years  ago we could have power stations much cheaper than we  can build them today. He regarded the Fraser River power  wastage as a tragedy and he  thought the power versus fish  problem  could be solved.  Industry he said, needed  new wealth and during the last  five years some five millions  of dollars of new capital was  invested in the province. Why?  Well, we hold some of the  trump cards in our natural resources but we need to do  more of the processing rignc  here in the province rather  than export raw products. We  have high wages in British Columbia but we face a precarious  position in high cost production competing with low cost  structures  elsewhere.  British Columbia requires  a greater number of secondary  industries! instead of allowing  cur natural resources* to develop other areas.  "You and I have got to der  comething about it," he told  his listeners. "We are the people who are going to have to  do it, not the man down the  street."  Before he closed Mr. Melville said he regarded Bill 43,  the anti-labor legislation passed recently in Victoria was a  good thing for labor and that  the -sound unionist had nothing,  to fear.
