 DANNY'S  DINING ROOM  JUST  FINE  FOOD  Phone GIBSONS 140  /�� Archives H. C  Parliament Bl*i"  Victoria�� ����� ^:��  SERVING THE GROWING SUNSHINE COAST  Published in Gibsons, B.C. Volume 11, Number 36, September 17, 1959.  RAY  WHITING  RADIO-CONTROLLED  i-'HOXE      9^0     GIBSONS  24 HR. COURTEOUS SERVICE  About 30 persons attended  the meeting in Totem Dining  Room in Sechelt on Thursday  of last week when representatives of boards of trade and  other organizations from Powell River to Port Mellon discussed ferry problems with  Col. George Paulin and B. Tol-  lofson  of Black Ball Ferries.  At the meeting were representatives from Powell River,  Pender Harbour, Sechelt, Selma Park, Roberts Creek, Gibsons and Port Mellon. Magistrate Johnston declared the  meeting was to be informal  but speakers had to hew to the  line and discuss Black Ball service only.  Black Ball Ferries, he said.  Tom Cook  is now 96  Sechelt's first white settler,  Thomas J. Cook celebrated his  96th birthday quietly with his  family recently. Coming here  in 1894, Mr. Cook built the  first log house on property  which later became the O'kel-  ley's, then the Flecks but now  owned by Mr.   C. McDermid.  He has had a wonderful life  and was at one time on the  household staff of the Empress Eugenie of France. He  sailed the seven seas before  dropping anchor at Sechelt  where he was appointed the  first Justice of the Peace.  He was beloved by the Indians who sought his advce and  aid in their many legal mat- -!  ters which arose at that time.  Some years ago he donated  land for St. Hilda's Anglican  church and pioneer cemetery  where many old-timers are  buried.  He has two daughters, Mrs.  S. Dawe the wife of Capt. S.  Dawe, retired and live�� here,  and" Mrs. Henry Whittaker of  Pender Harbour. Mr. Cook  does not get around much now  owing to an accident but he is  still keenly interestel in the  village of Sechelt.  had developed the Sunshine  Coast area but what wag  sought was improvement. The  company had shown a willingness in the past to co-operate  and he expected the same condition still existed.  Col. Paulin outlined the com  plaints received by his company in a letter from the Sechelt Board oi Trade transportation committee. These complaints concerned breakdowns  en the ferries, the ferries were  thought to be of inadequate  size, the need for an auxiliary  vessel to help out at peak load  times, long delays at Langdale,  the jamming of vehicles on ferries so people could not get out  of cars, drabness of ferry interiors, no radio or TV, the charge  to private cars was exorbitant,  no commuter tickets and no  explanation was ever given to  the waiting public for delays  at points of delay.  Taking each, complaint singly, Col. Paulin first reviewed  Black Ball history starting  with the Quillayute operating  to Gibsons at a time when  there were no good roads. In  co-operation with the provincial government Black Ball  helped get paved roads. In  1954 the service was extended  to Powell River and in 1956  two ferries were put on the  Howe Sound run and lately  Bowen Island had been added.  This had been done, Col.  Paulin explained, without having to resort to subsidies and  included the second slip att  Horseshoe Bay and the new  slip at Langdale. Today's greatest difficulty, he said, was in  finding money to keep pace  with growth. "We have plowed  back all available funds into  the expansion of service but it  cannot all be done at once,"  Col. Paulin added.  He did not agree the present  service was inferior and in all  fairness in view of what Black  Ball has done to help develop  the Sunshine Coast he could  not  consider it  in that light.  As regards breakdowns, the  service operated under federal  government rules under control of the department of transport which checked the ferries  thoroughly each year and OK'd  the ferries for service. In the  (Continued on Page 6)  CNIB plans Doctors unable  to save baby  1 dri  annua! drive  Ted Henniker, chairman of  the local branch, C.N.I.B., announced preliminary plans are  being laid for the early fall  canvass for funds for the work  of the Canadian National Institute, for the Blind. This appeal  will be carried out by local  volunteers.  Mr. Henniker said that in  previous years there has been  a multiplicity of appeals, allegedly to help tlie blind in  this province, but he urged the  public to know before giving  just where their "gift dollars"  were going.  The Canadian National Institute for the Blind covers  nil phases of rehabilitation ���  welfare services including free  library service to any blind  person wishing to receive  either Braille editions or the  Talking Books. When : you  give to serve the blind, Mr.  Henniker advised, give to the  only organization (Canada-  wide) equipped to serve them  ��� The Canadian National Institute for the Blind.  Thirty-two days of unremitting care and attention by faculty and staff, of St. Mary's  Hospital failed to preserve the  life of the hospital's tiniest occupant. On Monday of last  week the infant child of Mr.  and Mrs*. George August, of Sechelt died.  Born at Sechelt on Aug. 6,  the mite weighed only 2 lbs.  15 oz. on admission. Placed immediately in an incubator, the  baby was introduced to bottle-  feeding, with gratifying response. Oxygen was administered occasionally, which, according to administrator Bill  Milligan the baby took to as  easily as it had mastered the  bottle feeding.  Dr. Alan Swan was the attending physician. He, together  with the matron and nurses,  regarded as a challenge the  preservation of the child's life,  but despite every care, death  intervened.  Work party BJ>fJ ?"��!!  r a TTirct fall mrapt.-inc** nf Ciihso  repairs steps  Granthams Landing Property Owners Association held a  work party on Sunday Sept. 13  to replace the old wooden  porch and stairs on the Community hall with new concrete ones.  The executive extends appreciation and thanks to George  Cresswell, Fred Gehring, Bill  Gibb, Dick Kendall, Frank  Leonard, Red McLean, Russ  Stanley, Stan Verhulst and the  Granthams Social Club for  .their donation of time and materials.  First fall meeting of Gibsons  and Area Board of Trade will  be held Monday night, Sept.  21, at 7 p.m. in Danny's Dining room on Sechelt Highway.  This will be the opening  meeting of the season and it  is expected there will be a considerable amount of correspondence to be mulled over and  decisions made.  The dinner meeting will  start at 7 p.m. Walt. Nygren  is president and Mrs. Wynn  Stewart, secretary. Members  will be phoned to acquaint  them with the fact the meeting will be Monday night.  usinessmen  B  not to blame  Abuse of public conveniences gives businessmen good reason for keeping the public  away from their conveniences,  Barry MacDonald, provincial  sanitarian for this area implied  when addressing. Gibsons and  Area Ratepayers' Association  Monday night.  The meeting was held in the  United Church hall with 25  persons present. Mr. MacDonald actually . said the public  tear apart public conveniences  ! and he did not blame business*-  men for keeping the public  away from their toilet facilities.  Considerable discussion centred on the conditions on the  wharf which he said he had  drawn to the attention of the  proper authorities.  Mr. MacDonald, whose territory extends from Lilloet to  Jervis Inlet, taking in Pembina  Squamish, Gibsons and Sechelt  as well as points between,  dwelt on the work-of sanitarians, which he preferred to be  called instead of a sanitary officer  Referring to damage caused  by some of tlie public he told  of visiting Bowen Island installations for the public and  said he found them a shambles  and it was disheartening to see  what  damage had been done.  Mr. MacDonlad outlined his  duties and told of some of the  situations in which he found  himself, having to operate in  the best interest of the conditions, available wherever and  whatever they were.  Chairman Wes Hodgson commenting on the fact the name  of the association had been  changed without notice of motion asked that the previous  minute covering this point be  expunged and that a proper notice of motion be introduced.  The change as the dropping of  "and Area" from the title Gibsons and Area Ratepayers' Association. The area concerned,  the Headlands is now part of  Gibsons.  MAX   FERGUSON   has   to   be  careful not to forget his schedule. Once known only for his  Rawhide skits on CBC radio, he's  now active in Toronto television.  Though not heard on the full  network, he has a daily TV interview program and appears as  a guest on many other shows  GARDEN CLUB  Gibsons Garden club expects  to have another treat in store  for those who attend the Sept.  22 meeting in Gibsons United  Church hall at 8 p.m.  The speaker will be an old  friend of the club in the person of Mr. Tarrant of Vancouver who is retired but has not  retired from gardening in  which he has wide experience.  SHREDS   OF WIT  Trouble that looks like a  mountain from a distance, usually is only a hill when you* get to  it.  Temptation may be strong, but  it seldom overtakes the man who  runs from it.  Some people thing that the  easiest way to make a mountain  out of a molehill is to add a little  dirt.  Petty crime is increasing in  Gibsons area and RCMP warn  the populace to take greater  precautions in securing their  property so as to avoid breakins and thefts.  Recent break-ins have included Super-Valu store where  S150 in cash was stolen; Ken  Watson's Meat Market where  in two breakins the robbers  got $100 in cash and $25 in  cigarettes the second time and  the Mariner Cafe where $10  was stolen.  RCMP caution all residents  of the area that the days when  they could leave their doors  unlocked to go and visit a  neighbor have gone and it  would be wise for them not  only to keep their house protected but to also keep their  tool sheds and other sheds under lock and key.  Businessmen are also urged  to take greater care in the protection of their property and  where possible have a light on  so a wide area can be exposed  to any movement which might  occur.  Owners of cars are also urged by police to see that their  cars are locked overnight and  that the means for stealing gasoline from tanks is reduced to  a minimum. Leaving articles  in cars overnight is not regarded by police as being a good  thing because of temptation  implied.  Zone  meeting  A quarterly meeting of Elphinstone Peninsula zone, Canadian Legion will be held Saturday iri Gibsons Legion hall.  It is expected about 60 persons will attend from Texada,  Powell River, Pender Harbour,  Sechelt and Gibsons.  There will be a luncheon  served at 1 p.m. by the Gibsons Legion Auxiliary with  the general meeting to follow  at 2.15 p.m. It is expected general business only will be under discussion.  One of the highlights of the  meeting will be a display of  Second World War photographs  which are being prepared for  view by Ron Haig, zone commander. These pictures are out  standing because of their quality and because many of them  were shot right in battle areas.  To those veterans of the Second War some scenes they well  remember will be on exhibit.  From January 1 to August  SI this year slightly more than  three-quarters of a million  dollars has been spent on new  construction along the Sunshine Coast both residential  and commercial.  It is expected, based on last  year's total figure of $935,278,  that this year's figure will pass  the million dollar mark by  Dec. 31. This year's figure at  Work  police H Q  Work has started on the Gibsons detachment RCMP headquarters.  The contract for $39,085 was  awarded to Imperial Builders  Limited of Burnaby B.C. the  minister of public works Hon.  David J. Walker has announced. Tne company submitted the  lowest bid on the project in  response to the department's  advertising for public tenders.  Specified completion date is  February 1960.  The new two-storey building  with attached one-car garage  ���will face northeast on School  road and will be of wood frame  construction with exterior finish of wood siding. Livng quarters wll consist of Iving room,  dining room, kitchen, three  bedrooms and one bathroom  for married personnel and one  bedroom with bathroom for  single personnel. Floors in  living, dining and bedrooms  will be of hardwood. Bathroom  floors will be covered with ceramic tile, and a glazed tile  dado will line the wall.  Work areas will consist of  an office cell-room, exhibit  room and storage room, with  interior/-wall finish of. painted,  gypsum board and linoleum  covered floors.  The garage will contain adequate storage space and a hot  water heating system with oil  burning furnace will be provided.  Plans and specifications  were prepared by the building  construction branch of the department, of public works and  the project will be under supervision of the district architect, Vancouver, R.J. Bickford.  the end of August was just  $158,675 short of last year's  total.  These figures, tabulated  from official sources in the  villages of Gibsons and Se-  chel and on the spot estimates  by B.C. Electric employees,  cover the area from Port Mellon to Jervis Inlet.  Since B.C. Electric started  gathering these figures in May  of 1957 close to two millions  of dollars have been put into  construction, mainly new. This  shows steady growth and means  that more merchandise has  been moved to enable such  construction and more will be  moved as the new buildings are  inhabited or put to some commercial use.  The larger part of the two  millions of dollars has gone  into the construction of new  homes. While the figure of  about 200 new homes in the  area sice May 1957 is not strictly accurate it is regarded by  those who have made the estimates to be close enough.  For the eight months, May  to December, reported in 1957  the total construction figure  was $209,400. For the same  months in 1958 the total was  $448,400, which was more than  double the same period of the  previous year. This year's figure from May to December  based on the present rate-  should be close to doubling the  1958 eight month figure which  would put it in the $800,000  bracket.  All this points to increasing,  business in the area as the villages    and    the    unorganized  areas grow. True, some homes  are for summer residents only.  but in the main the majority  will be occupied by permanent'  residents.  So far this year Gibsons has .  the edge on Sechelt .with the  construction how underway'  totalling $120,903. The Sechelt  figure for the same period is  $26,200. Last year Sechelt was  ahead of Gibsons in the amount  of new construction.  Ritchey takes  D  awe s place  pi<  Mill operating  at Port Mellon  Port Mellon's Canadan Forest Products pulp mill expects  to be in full operation by  Thursday noon.  This was announced by company officials Monday who reported at tlie same time they  had started recalling all employees. It is expected the production of pulp will be going  ahead at approximately Thursday noon.  In the meantime employees  on the various steps leading  to the manufacture of pulp for  the huge machine which produces the finished product are  back at work preparing sufficient supplies to keep the machine in operation.  The mill was forced to close  clown due to the IWA strike  drying up sources of chip sup-  Ply-  nre insurance  rates are cut  Fire insurance rates for  Gibsons village have been revised downwards as the result  of a survey made by British  Columbia Underwriters Association.  Recent insurance rates were  in September of last year $8  per thousand of insurance. On  Jan. 1 this was raised to $10  per thousand. As the result of  the survey the present rate for  Gibsons will be $7.50 per thousand  insurance.  The survey found that Gibsons had improved water pressure and had much better fire  protection services which also  showed up in better fire prevention standards throughout  the village.  R.C. Ritchey of Gibsons, see-  i etary-treasurer of the Gibsone-  Sechelt Airport Management-  committee was named as alternate delegate to the B.C  Aviation Council convention  due to the illness of Capt. Samuel Dawe who had previously  been appointed by the Sechelt  Village Council. This convention is at Harrison Hot Springs  Sept. 16 to 18.  The Sechelt Village Council  also named Mrs. Christine  Johnston, chairman of the  council and Commissioner HL  B. Gordon as delegates to the  Union of B.C. Municipalities  Convention now underway at  Kelowna.  An application for a building  permit by John Toynbee was  not granted, owing to the fact  the subdivision plans relating  to the property had not received registration and final approval through the Land Registry office.  c  irJer.t  Concert plans  A meeting of Overture Concerts executive will be held  Thursday evening at 8 o'clock  in the Coast News office for  the purpose of organizing for  the coming season.  Following three successful  seasons of concerts in the area,  the executive hopes to be able  to get a line on some high  class concert material for this  season's concerts. This meeting has been called by Les  Hempsall the president.  ar acci  Pat Englehart of Wilson  Creek was injured in a car accident at Tyson road and Sechelt Highway. The accident  occurred about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday as a vehicle driven by  Cliff Oviatt of Gibsons was  turning into Tyson road. Englehart who was coming from  the direction of Gibsons swerved to miss Oviatt's car. Engle-  hart's car turned over and is  badly damaged.  Dr. W.N. McKee was called  and he sent Englehart to St.  Mary's Hospital in the Sechelt  Volunteer Fire Departmen ambulance.  OAP meeting  The Old Age Pensioner Organization reminds their members that the next meeting will  take place at the Kinsmen club  on Monday, Sept. 21.  In view of the fact no meetings have been held for July  or August, a large attendance  is anticipated.  In addition to other matters  dealt with by the executive  which met last Monday afternoon, it was pointed out that  there are now 92 members in  the organization.  The 1959 Canadian construction boom is reflected in the  record sales of the clay products  industry which last year amounted to $41,700,000, an all-time  high.  FOUR-CORNER BINGO  Nights are drawing in again  and the lure of four corners is  taking hold again. The four  corners are contained on little cards dealt out at Thursday night's Bingo in the School  Hall. Prize for having the four  corners is $50 and the number  of calls is increasing so someone must win soon. Coast News, Sept. 17, 1959.

Some steam let off  Meetings similar to the one held last week at Sechelt when  Black Ball Ferries service was discussed are a means of letting  off steam.  Some 25 or more representative people from Powell River  to Port Mellon attended the meeting and for the most part were  not too vehement in the presentation of questions or arguments.  At the same time it gave management a glimpse into the  thinking of the populace regarding the ferry service while representatives of the Sunshine Coast learned something of the problems of management.  Who won in last Thursday'�� get-together is not a point at  issue because neither side reached the point where it was debate  of momentous decision. What did matter was that both sides were  able to talk over problems and see points of view.  It is true not everyone left the meeting satisfied his or her  personal problem had been solved and neither did Black Ball  officials feel they had solved anything except to find out the  strength of the protests.  Nevertheless the meeting which was called by Magistrate  .Johnston as chairman of the Sechelt Board of Trade transportation committee gave both sides a chance to air feelings and beyond outlining a few improvements of a minor nature the meeting could be termed one in which some matters were explored  without decisions being reached.  How do we defend Freedom?  Remarks by Mr. Justice J.T. Thorson covering Bill 43,  ihe British Columbia legislation reputed to be aimed at crippling  labor unions, raise a point which perhaps Mr. Justice Thorson  "himself can answer.  During he Bar association meeting in Vancouver, where  lawyers convened to mull over their problems, Mr, Justice Thorson, who heads the Exchequer court in Ottawa said: "There is no  doubt that a threat to the freedom of association is implied in  the.. . legislation.  Mr. Justice Thorson has had many years of legal quib-  blings as head of a federal court. He ha�� a point but not the  whole point. Selecting say some Birdwatchers association as a  culprit, what does one do when that Birdwatcher association decides to take the bit between its teeth and abuse a freedom under  which everyone lives. How do we bring to a reasonable frame of  ���mind the recalcitrant birdwatchers? How do we preserve the  freedoms we have? Do we leave them unprotected? Do we leave  them so those who desire to kick over the traces can do so with  impunity? Are the freedoms worth defending?  The learned judge may have a point but the freedoms are  not so free that abuses can be used to advantage by one section.  The freedoms apparently exist in the area midway between  abuse and lethargy. Therefora our freedoms should rate protection within the legal framework, even from threats.  Let your light so shine  ��� ��� ��� ���  Lack of publicity has led to a misconception which could  bave been avoided if word had been spread at the right time.  From the current issue of the Port Mellon Thunderbird one can  reafi. the following:  "There have recently been several reports* which might  give the impression that the Kinsmen Club of Gibsons was the  sole sponsor of swimming classes at Gibsons and Port Mellon. We  ���wish to point out that the classes are a joint venture. The Port  Mellon Community association and the Gibsons Kinsmen club  are both supplying funds for these classes."  To most people including the editor and staff of the Coast  News this is tlie first intimation the Port Mellon association was*  joint sponsor of swimming classes. Better liason all round might  have produced better results for the Port Mellon Community association.  The Coast News is striving to be fair to all organizations  taking part in community enterprises and does not want to favor  one over another. So to the Port Mellon Community association  some advice: Do not hide your light under a bushel. If you are  involved in a community enterprise let the Coast News help you.  Fifty years ago the popular  Canadian novelist, Ralph Connor, wrote: "In Western Canada  there is to be seen today that  most fascinating of all human  phenomena, the making of a nation." This nation was being)  formed, he said. "Out of breeds  diverse in traditions, in ideals,  in speech, and in manner of life,  Saxon and Slav, Teuton, Celt and  Gaul. . ."  This statement , appeared in  the preface to Connor's novel  The Foreigner which was published in 1909 and which tell?  the story of a Russian immigrant  and  his family in the West.  Ralph Connor is but one of  many Canadian writers who  have been interested in immigrants ��� their struggles in this  land, the motives that brought  them here, their relations with  native-born Canadians, the impact of the new world on them  and the part they have playedi  and continue to play in building  the nation. Some of the writers  have been immigrants themselves. Others, like Ralph Connor, have been a generation or  more removed from their immigrant ancestors.  It is not the purpose of this  article, however, to present aa  exhaustive survey of the literature on immigrants. The aim is,  rather, to show how the immigrant is portrayed and his problems revealed in some of the  more outstanding creative works  in Canadian literature. Most of  the books referred to are fiction.  No poetry is included.  Many of the early settlers in  Nova Scotia were New Engenders and ether Americans who  came in the years preceding as  well as the years following the  American Revolution. Thomas  R. Raddall has given us a picture of those days in -The Wedding-Gift and Other Stories. The  setting is a seaport town which/  the author calls Oldport and th3  stories concern events in the  lives of some of the first settlers  of tile town ��� Silas Bradford,  the New Englander who founded Oldport in 1759; Colonel  Sumter Larrabee, a loyalist from  the South who became the leading citizen; .the Larrabee daughters some privateersmen and  some Indians of the vicinity.  Other early settlers were a  group of Yorkshiremen who  came to Cumberland County,  Nova Scotia, in the 1770's. One  of their descendants, Will R.  Bird, has written about them in  two novels. Here Stays Good  Yorkshire is the story of the  Crabtree family from their immigration in 1772 through the  first critical five years of their  life in Canada.  The American Revolution  erupted during this period and  rebels fr*m the American colonies threatened to invade Nova  Scotia. This added to the worries and difficulties of getting  established in a new land. The  author plays up the adventurous  side of the settlers' experiences  rather than the hardships of  pioneering. We see the lusty  Crabtree boys competing with  each other for land and wives,  going hunting with the Indians,  and finally defending their families and farms from the invaders who attacked at Fort Cumberland in 1776.  "It seemed a diabolical thing  that intruders wanted to come  and molest people who had never  in any way molested them," the  author says. "The Yorkshiremen  had planted their roots in this  new soil and strong growth had  begun. They had acquired flocks  and herds, houses and barns and  implements, built dykes and put  in bridges, such a foundation of  the future as they would not  lightly let go." The invaders,  who were poorly organized, were  easily beaten off and the Yorkshiremen were left (secure on  their farms though not without  losses.  In the sequel, Tristram's Salvation, the author pursues further the experiences of Tristram  Crabtree and his brothers and  sisters on their farms.  The American Revolution also  resulted in the movement of  many settlers from south of the  border to Upper Canada, now Ontario. These loyalists were not  all of British origin. Prominent  among them were the German  Mennonites, sometimes called  Pennsylvania Dutch, who began  migrating to Canada at the turn  of the century. Their story has  been sympathetically told in The  Trail of the Conestoga by Mabel  Dunham.  According to this novel (which  is based on historical facts) the  Mennonites were afraid that the  new American government  would not honor the pledge of  exemption from military service  that the British government had  made. "Canada was the magic  word. . . There the shackles of  slaves were broken, and there  men might live unmolested according to the dictates of their  consciences," the Mennonites be-  lieved.  In 1802 young Sam Bricker  with   his   brother John, John's  wife and four children made the  long tedious journey from Pennsylvania to Upper Canada. They  came in two conestogas���covered-  wagons that were drawn, by "two  span of heavy draught horses"���  making the dangerous crossing  cf the Niagara River and proceeding to the Heasley Tract  where two or three Mennonite  families had gone before and  which later became part of  Waterloo County.  The Brickers were followed by  other Mennonites ��� Benjamin,  Eby, the Erbs, Schneiders, Betz-  ners and other families whose  names are familiar in that part  of Ontario. The novel tells of the  hardships experienced by the  settlers ��� facing starvation the  first winter, having to go 25  miles to the nearest mill to get  their wheat ground, fighting  forest fires that threatened to  wipe out their homes, and finally  being pressed into service to haul  provisions for the army in the  War of 1812.  These difficulties, however,  did not discourage the Mennonites who were sustained by their  religious beliefs and united in  brotherhood. In a few years they  were firmly established on their  farms and had founded Eby-  town ��� the village settlement  that later became Kitchener.  Many of the British settlers  who came to Canada in early  days belonged to military families. Such a one was J. W. Dunbar Moodie whose wife Susanna  recorded their experiences so  vividly in Roughing it in the  Bush. Mr. Mocdie was a younger  son and a lieutenant who had  been retired from the British  army. He had, therefore, says  Mrs. Moodie "determined to try  his fortune in Canada, and settle upon the grant of 400 acres  of land ceded by the Government to officers upon half-pay."  They landed in Canada in 1832  and proceeded to a farm north  of Cobourg, Ontario Later they  moved farther north to a backwoods farm in the Peterborough  area.  The Moodies experienced very  hard times which were aggravated by their lack of fitness for  the pioneering task. Mr. Moodie  apparently never farmed before  and  Susanna had been used to  the lif e of a gentlewoman. Nevertheless she learned to work in  the fields and to milk cows.  Sometimes the family was;  short of food. "The cows had  net calved," she writes of the  summer of 1837 when her second  (Coniinued on Page 7)  Robert D. Wright, N.D.

Sel7~4138 ' J.F. MCDONALD  Provincial Collector  One of the problems facing  Mr. and Mrs. Joe Public andi  family when they prepare to retreat to some secluded beach for  a Sunday picnic is wondering if  they are within the law, a recent  article in the Powell River News  read.  "Maybe it's a privately-owned  beach," says Mrs. Public, and  the end result of the dark cloud  of suspicion is that Joe Public  trundled Mrs. P. and the kids  into the family car and they  spend the day on not-<so-secluded  Willingdon Beach, or any of the  more popular haunts.  Private beaches���phooey!!!  Although many residents have  been turned away from beaches  in the district because the resident who owns the property immediately above the beach stated  "yon can't have a picnic here,  this is a private beach," more  than likely they are on "free  beach," or unowned property.  Beach property, unless foreshore rights have been issued to  the owner, is not private.  And foreshore rights are not  issued with wild abandon by the  Provincial Government. They are  for restricted purposes only.  Legally, the beach property of  any resident ends at a maximum  high water mark, and does not  continue down into the water as  many residents think. Others  knew the property limits, but attempt to chase picnickers off  with the "private beach" bluff.  "There are lines on the map  where the high water marks are,"  istated solicitor J. S. P. Johnson  when asked! how a person would  be able to tell where the property line is.  Johnson srid the line is a stationary one, although the beach  line or high tide mark may  change.  He cited the case of a farmer  in the delta who lived on an is-  lad. As the years progressed,  the island grew in size with silt  coming down the river and depositing on the banks.  ITilie farmer, later claimed that  all the property which had been  added to his beach property was  legally his, but the provincial  government judged the added  land was not his, as the original  maximum high water mark remained, stationary.  According to legal opinion  given The News, picnickers and  >beach-goers may use any of the  beaches providing they do not  trespass on private property to  get   access   to the beach or do  This week's  RECIPE  TOMORROW'S DINNER  Cream cf Pea Soup  Rolls  Fish Steaks Creole  Mashed Rutabaga  Tossed Lettuce  Orange Ambrosia  Coffee       Tea       Milk  Fish Steaks Creole: Use 2 lbs.  cod, haddock, salmon or sword-  fish, sliced one-inch thick.

Access roads to beache also  present a problem to those who  yearn for a slight bit of solitude  for themselves and their families  on   that  Sunday picnic.  Access roads, or roads not  privately owned, are sometimes  hard to come by although a government ruling stipulates thai  access roads in any subdivided  area must be provided to the  beach at a distance of every ten  chains ��� which is 660 feet or  220 yards.  And although the access roads  are sometime fenced in by residents seeking  complete privacy,  they are still there. Any roads  rvvnning   to   the beach through  Coast News,  Sept.  17, 1959.     3  new subdivisions are access  roads and are open to the public, although old subdivision  roads to the beach are quite often hard to recognize.  The best way to gam access tc*  the beaches ��� whether they are  supposed to be "privately owned" or not ��� is by boat, whicfe  eliminates the possibility of trespassing altogether.

For this is a highlight of a  "camping out" holiday, so carefully planned that expenditures didn't exceed the sum of money set aside for it.  The budget of the Minister of Northern Affairs and National Resources at Ottawa covers a number of departmental  branches. Among these are National Parks, Water Resources, Forestry, and Northern Administration and Lands.  His expenditures involve millions of dollars.  Money for all departments of government comes through  the Minister of Finance who gets it largely in taxes from  Canadians such as you. When more money is spent than is  collected in taxes, government must borrow from you ...  or else create new money. The creation of new money is  one factor that leads to inflation . . . which means your  dollar buys less and less.  The government has been spending more than you have  been paying in taxes. To narrow the gap between income  and expenditures, new taxes have been imposed.  The next step should be to reduce expenditures, or at;  least hold the line. Undertaking new commitments ��� adding  new welfare or other services ��� will only make it that much  more difficult to pay our way. Tell your M.P. at Ottawa that  since you are trying to save, you expect government to do  the same.  You also help when you save more by means of life insurance, savings deposits, and the purchase of government  bonds. Your savings help to create a SOUND dollar; and  this, in turn, helps to create job security for you and more  jobs for other Canadians.

Stone Villa on Pratt road  has become quite a spot to visit now that the area is becoming settled with pensioners.  Two years ago Oscar Olsen  explained to Alek Simpkins  how homes were built from  firewood in Sweden, a practice which has been going on  for the last three or four hundred years.  Mr. Simpkins, who has been  building homes for pensioners  decided to build one. Stove  length chopped chunks of tree  wood are laid in beds of concrete and then both sides are  plastered with cement outside  and plaster inside, making a  thick wall which keeps out.  cold and heat.  Such walls, Mr. Simpkins  says, are fireproof, warm,  cheap and quick to put up and  the home so far built is an asset to Stone Villa, an area  which Mr. Simpkins is developing for pensioners. Frank Lyle  is occupying the firewood  house on a lifetime lease and  appears to be quite happy  about his home.  A well driller has moved to  Stone Villa and is at work in  the area. He has drilled a well  producing plenty of water at  51 feet on the Gower Point  Eoad and is now drilling near  Super-Valu Store.  A. Rowell and N. Burton  have purchased lots, built their  houses and have their TV antennas hooked up so they can  enjoy life in their new homes  on which they pay only $1 a  year in taxes to Mr. Simpkins.

Paulin said that on 14  round trips daily there were  1,260 spots available for vehicular traffic. Records showed  that during July 53.4 percent  of capacity and on weekends  56.7 percent of capacity was  utilized. The problem was, he  explained, that the ferries cannot carry all if they want to  get on the ferries at the same  time. This applied to all ferry  services, he said.  Congestion on roads led to  congestion on ferries and the  company could not afford to  keep a ship standing by for  overload occasions and further  at we�� not possible to obtain  extra vessels for  weekends.  Next he discussed overcrowd  ing so people could not get out  of their cars. The company  tried to avoid it and complied  with regulations but human  fallibility leads to complications in the placing of cars and  the human fallibility was not  always confined to the ship's  crew. Main complaint was  about the Smokwa which was  supposed to carry small cars  only on the outside lanes but  ether cars got in.  The desire for radio and TV  was not general, he implied, by  commenting on the point that  some people   objected  to   the  loudness   of  car radios  while  aboard the ferry. It is difficult  to  please everybody,  he said.  Fare tariffs Col. Paulin said  had not increased in the past  eight years in spite of the fact  there had been quite heavy increases  in   costs.   Black   Ball  was the only water transportation company that had not increased rates. From the floor it  was explained that at the time  the ferries started it was stated the tariffs were set high so  that as the service grew there  would   be   a   reduction.   Col.  Paulin reiterated it could not  be  done  now   owing   to  high  costs during a period of inflation.  As regards commuter tickets  he said they were available as  noted on the Black Ball Ferries  printed schedules. There were  at present two commuter tickets in use.  The point about there being  no announcements regarding  delays, he admitted was true  but it was not the fault of the  company because those in  charge of operations at points  of delay were informed of the  trouble and they should have  passed on the information. He  said this would be corrected as  soon as possible.  Concluding his examination  of complaints, Col.

"We are  not asleep at the switch and are  ever mindful of the situation  and will develop it as soon as  possible," he added.  Replying to a question asking why one of the Nanaimo  ferries could not be used on  the Langdale run after the government ferry service started  to Vancouver Island, Col. Paulin said he did not think the advent of the new service would  have any effect on the Nanaimo run which was growing at  a fast pace.  Close scheduling of some  ferries creating long waits between drew a suggestion from  the floor that the situation  should be improved. The answer was that including Bowen  Island in the schedule forced  close scheduling at certain periods.  The problem of trucks arriving later that half-an-hour  before ferry time was raised  by one trucker and the reply  wa�� that three types of traffic  were handled, private cars,  walking passengers and commercial vehicles and each must  be treated fairly. It was understood that trucks operated on  schedules but regulation was  made difficult when a truck  was late.  Possibility of a standard sum  mer and winter schedule was  brought up and it was explained that with the double slip  now operating at Horseshoe  Bay this might be possible.  Changes were made in the past  as improvements were added.  Questions regarding a reservation system for cars were  not received enthusiastically  by either Black Ball official  present who declared such a  system would not work. Magistrate Johnston was of the  opinion it would work and suggested that as president of the  company, Col. Paulin should  see that something be done  about it.  One speaker thought the way  Black Ball was operating was  Ming Tackle  Commercial and Sports  Hardware���Dry  Goods  BAPCO   PAINT  Interior & Marine  6     Coast News, Sept. 17, 1959.  keeping people away from the  Sunshine Coast. Dirty conditions on the boats were also  mentioned. Another suggested  there should be some regulation of the times trucks used  the ferries to allow more room  for private cars at specified  times. Boats behind cars occupying car space were criticized  but Col. Paulin said a first-  come-first-served policy would  be continued.  A communication from Gibsons Ratepayers Association  was tabled to be included in  the minutes.  In closing Magistrate John  ston declared the entire economy of the Sunshine Coast area  was dependent a great deal on  Black Ball service. It was the  squeaky wheel which got the  grease and "that is why you  are hearing from us," he told  Col. Paulin.  Replying Col. Paulin said he  was grateful at having the opportunity of listening to the  complaints and also the helpful suggestions some of which  can be used.  "We'll do the best we can.  It is in the interest of the community that we do so. The more  this area grows, the better it  will be for Black Ball," Col.  Paulin added.

Howe.  The medical team then went  into action and in succession  their registration forms were  located (usually difficult because  Eskimos are so migratory); x-  rays taken for T.B.; immunization injections, medical checkup  and dental survey with emergency treatment.  By the time they were through,  tJLeir x-rays are ready and a  medical diagnosis made. If it is  found any have T.B. or other  serious illness the welfare people  take over to organize evacuation. We were happy, however,  that there were no evacuees  from this place.  This, annual trip over the last  25 years has reduced the incidence of T.B., decreased the infant and maternal mortality and  turned the Eskimo from a declining to an increasing population. For this I am personally  very happy. I have travelled in  many lands but nowhere have  I met a people whose honest  sincere ty I  admire more.  Two of the patients were those  delightful inseparables, a young  mother and her two-month old  baby carried in a parka. Either  sleeping of feeding from mom or  the handling when given her  first shots the baby was a delightful patient. I passed her  teeth as OK.  But ��� and here is the lesson  ��� these people, there were 10  of them from two months to 45  years old, had in one year grown  only one new cavity and five of  them were from five to 12 years  old, the age group which in Sechelt has so many cavities. No  candy, cake, pop, cookies, soft  drinks or soft diet ��� just tough  meat, rough meal and vegetables  and those relatively raw.  We were forced to hurry the  last part of the survey as we got  word from the bridge the wind  had changed, blowing ice floes  across our course. So we bade  farewell to our patients in rather  short time.  We ihad a slow passage through  pack ice to Wakeham Bay and  due to ice conditions were unable to reach Koartak. Wake-  ham Bay was reached on July  6 at 9.15 p.m. after a beautifully  clear day. The sky was blue but  there was ice as far as one could  see, so it was cold. We passed  many seals sunning on ice floes.  The medical survey team, of  which I am part, went to work  at 10 p.m. Eskimos were brought  to the C. D. Howe by helicopter  from outlying camps, the nearer  ones by landing barge. The  northern lattitude made it all  possible since there is no darkness at this time of year, just  a couple of hours of twilight.  We had to. quit at 4 a.m. as a  rising wind made helicopter  operations dangerous. We slept  a couple of hours and after  breakfast at 7 a.m. were at work  again until 2 p.m. by which time  only a few outlying families had  not  gone through  the survey.  To give an indication of their  excellent teeth, treatment after  a full year without a dentist, for  106 people, there were 14 extractions and six fillings. The  remaining Eskimos were located  and brought in by helicopter between 6 and 11 p.m.  I was here in 1955 on a different survey but it was gratifying to receive so warm a welcome from many Eskimos for  whom I had done dentistry on  that occasion. Handshaking is a  great thing with these people  and they certainly can shake  your handl  By the time we had entered  up the records and put the surgeries in order we sailed after  29 hours stay with only two of  them in bed.

Bat in spite of all their hardships, Mrs. Moodie regretted  leaving her backwoods home. "I  loved the lonely lake, with its  magnificent belt of dark pines  sighing in the breeze; the cedar  swamp, the summerhome of my  dark Indian friends; my own  dear little garden, with its rugged snake-fence which I helped  Jenny to place with my own  hands . . . and where I had so  often braved the tormenting  mosquitoes, black flies, and intense heat, to provide vegetables  for the use of the family."  In contrast to this true story  of hardship, the fictional White-  oaks of the Jalna series of novels  by Maze De la Roche, prospered  on an Ontario farm and established a family mansion of vivid  reality to the devoted readers  of the series.  The Building of Jalna tells how  Captain Philip White oak and his  Irish-born wife, Adeline, tiring  of their life in India where  Philip was stationed, decided to  emigrate to Quebec. They did  so in 1S51 but found the winter  long and hard. An army friend  of Philip's had gone to southern  Ontario and they resolved to follow him.  The Whiteoaks took up land  near Lake Ontario, west of Toronto. They built a huge red,  brick house -which they called  Jalna after the place in India  where they had lived. Thus was  founded the Whiteoak family  and home of Canadian literary  fame.  . While The Building of Jalna  is highly romantic it is permeated by the spirit of early Canada  ��� the keen enjoyment of simple  pleasures such as skating on the  lake, a picnic on the beach, riding, visiting the neighbors. Even  the plans for the house that was  to be a bit of old England were  inevitably adapted to suit tha  climate, the feeling of space, and  the pioneer way of life.

BABY HARNESS FOUND  Maybe you have not lost this  article but you may know some .  cne who has, apparently a sum  rrxer visitor. A baby harness  was found on Gower Point  beach and whoever can claim  it will find it at Gower Point  store.  Police Court  John Bunyon, Gibsons; Joseph Auger, Selma Park; Charles Morrow, Vancouver; Roderick Belyea, Vancouver, and  Robert Massi, Port Mellon,  were all found guilty of speeding and fined $25 each by Magistrate Andrew Johnston.  The magistrate levied a $150.  fine against Joseph Mills Boyd  of Halfmoon Bay when found  guilty of impaired driving.  Norman McPherson of Sechelt was fined $10 for failing  to have a tail light on the vehicle he was operating.  Bruce Beerman of Powell  River was fined $15 for crossing a newly painted white line.  The Johnston twins have discovered their letters are being  turned into articles in the Coast.  News and Ron writes he was  surprised their observations of  the Near East were appearing  and hoped they would be presented  in an  unbiased manner.  Ron and Roger, twin sons of  Magistrate and Mrs. Johnston of  Sechelt are serving in the Near  East with the United Nations;  Expeditionary Force and are  gaining a first hand kowledge  of the people and economics as  well as  pohtics of the country.  On the night this particular  letter was written Ron visited  an Arab friend where the refugee problem was discussed. The  Canadians themselves, the boys  find, believe the Egyptians a  ���somewhat confused people in  the propaganda battle against  the British specifically. They  have accepted a good deal of  help from the United States but  have indulged in considerable  criticism of the USA.  During the early morning  hows a fire broke out in a storage shed containing powdered  milk for the refugees and a  party of the men were sent out  to help military firemen quench  the blaze.  Ron describes the Rafah camp  as something like a concentration camp bounded by barbed  wire and an area from which the  boys cannot leave for their own  safety. Commeting on the reports of hardships which have  trickled out of the area, he says  everyone there is a volunteer  and if he personally had! his way  he would volunteer for another  six months, so there is no reason  for any pity being showered on  the   men   who    are serving in  UNEF, he adds.  Ron gets leave to Bierut, Lebanon and Roger is planning on  seeking another leave into Jerusalem. Roger attended a Sunday night service at a Baptist  mission where the minister, not  allowed to convert any Arab to  Christianity, still has a congregation half of which are Arabs.  He holds a service in Arabic.  Roger reports befriending a  family of Bedouins and through  meeting these people has begun  to more keenly -understand ths  refugee problem. The two great  enemies of refugees are hunger  and inactivity. UN units help alleviate the hunger they suffer.  As regards inactivity, he reports  they appear to be waiting for a  future showdown which may  open up their lost homeland.  What is needed, he surmises, is  a vast irrigation scheme- which  will allow them to cultivate the  land around them.  (This instalment catches up  with the letters both Ron and  Roger have written home and  until something develops such  as their return to Canada, Coast  News readers *will have to wait  till that time to hear more about  tihe twins and their UNEF experiences.)
