Volume 11, Number 41, October 22, 1959.  A Complete Line  of Men's Clothing  Marine  Men's  Wear Ltd.  Phone 2 ��� Gibsons,  B.C.  Damage amounting to approximately $15,000 was caused to the Johnston home behind the liquor store in Gibsons when fire broke out  around 8 p.m. on Oct. 15.  Three children in the house,  Dean, 4; Dana, 7 and Trevor,  8 were getting ready for bed.  Other occupants at the time  were A. Edmond and J. Wolan-  Ski. C.K. Jhnston, father of  the children had gone to the  home of John Solnik to get the  fourth child, a baby, Kevan,  18 months old, where it had  been placed while Mrs. Johnston was away for a few hours  in Vancouver.  It was while at the nearby  Solnik home, Mr. Johnston noticed flames coming from his  ��� house and he rushed back immediately. The children and  other occupants of the burning house got out quickly. The  children were taken to the  home of Ken Watson.  How the fire started is not  clearly ascertained. The Gibsons Volunteer fire department  responded quickly to the alarm  and had the flames under control in quick time. The village  fire truck and the area tank  turned out and after the fire  was out the tank truck stood  by in the event of a flare-up.  The Gibsons branch of the  Red Cross on learning of the  situation in which the Johnston  family found itself obtained  sufficient bedding and funds  to purchase necessary clothing  for the children all of whom  were suffering from whooping  cough. The Johnston family is  now living in one of the suites  at the home of George Hunter,  water taxi operator at Granthams. Further assistance  would be welcomed by the  Johnston's who have suffered a  considerable loss.  Mr. Wolanski, one of the occupants of the house is tne  Wolanski who won a Golden  Shoe honor at Port Mellon, the  story covering the event will  be found in next week's issue.  The Johnston's are grateful  to the Red Cross and otlier people who gave them assistance  following the fire. Insurance  adjusters are busy checking  the loss.  Firemen kept a watchful eye  on the nearby Shell Oil tanks.  Possibility of an explosion  was remote but a close watch  was made in cas$.  " Complaints were made by  firemen about people getting in  the way and those desiring to  help should, firemen say, wait  until they are asked and not  be too eager. Co-operation is  desired but it must be of the  type the firemen require.  Letters offer thanks  We express our heartfelt  gratitude for the help and  thoughtfulness of our friends  and neighbors during our recent misfortune.  We want also to congratulate  the member�� of the volunteer  fire department for their speed  and efficienc in controlling the  fire and to the members of the  RCMP who were so considerate and efficient in their work  of directing traffic, rescue and  salvage. Words just cannot express our feelings.  Lorraine and Cy Johnston  PENDER HARBOUR FIRE  Editor: On behalf of Ted  and myself I thank all of those  who rushed over to help when  our house was in flames. We  are sure that if it had not been  for the Volunteer fire brigade  and all who came to help, in  eluding my father   who kept  the fire from entering shattered kitchen window by spraying  with a garden hose until the  fire brigade arrived, our home  would now be in ashes.  "We also thank the many who  stayed behind after the fire  was put. out to help straighten  things up. Also many thanks to  neighbors far and near who  put us and our children up until we got settled in a cottage  which Mr. Jack "Potts kindly  said we could have until our  own place was fixed up, and  those other neighbors who offered  the  same sort  of help.  It gave us a very nice feeling to know that we had so  many friends.  And thanks to the  Sechelt  telephone operator, also to Dr.  Stonier   for  rushing   over   at  once to see if anyone was hurt.  Ted and Eileen Girard and  family.  Firemen are grateful, too  Volunteer Fire Services  thank donors for their generous consideration of the work  the firemen are doing in the  area.  Ed Shaw of I & S Transport  donated $25 to foe Gibsons  snd Area Volunteer Fire Department and $25 to the Volunteer Fire Services. N. Johnson  of  Hopkins  Landing   donated  S50 to fire department services  in general and One Gibsons  Conor who prefers to remain  anonymous presented the fire  department with $100 in cash  to be used at the discretion of  the Volunteer Fire Services.  The firemen also thank Mc-  Phedran Electric of Sechelt  who donated labor in wiring  the new fire hall on North Rd.  River of Gold planned  A shipment of golden tulip  bulbs has arrived in Gibsons  from Holland, part of a huge  order of three-quarters of a  million bulbs to be planted .by  Girl Guide companies and  Brownie packs from coast to  coast to mark the Golden Jubilee of Guiding is Canada in  1960.  The tulips, ordered by the  Guides and Brownies will be  planted at the Anglican Parish  Hall as a "thank you" to the  community for its cooperation  with the Guide movement since  its formation here. The bulbs  are all Golden Harvest tulips  and wilf be planted in a trefoil-  shaped bed. They will bear a  small notice stating that they  are he gift of the Guides an  Brownies to mark'their Golden Jubilee.  Tulips will be planted by the  girls themselves under the direction of Mrs. G. Corlett. The  shipment was shipped from  Holland to the ports of Montreal and Vancouver, and the  bulbs have been distributed  from these points to communities in every province.  Orders for each community  were individually packed and  labelled in Holland, and each  order carries, with it detailed  planting instructions for the  climate where the bulbs will  grow.  Next spring the Girl Guide  "River of Gold" will start to  bloo.m on Vancouver Island  and'will gradually flow across  Canada to the coast of Newfoundland.  CNiB drive  Canvassers are still reporting back to Ted Henniker,  chairman of the CNIB campaign this year with funds collected to help this organization which does good work for  blind people,.  The total amount collected  to date equals the amount collected at the same time last  year and the year before but  canvassers are hoping they will  be able to surpass last year's  figure.  Canvassers will continue  their work until the job is.  complete so when the CNIB  canvasser calls, be prepared to  give.  LIBERAL WOMEN MEET  Mrs. A.E. Hunt, of Soames  Point, president of the Provincial Women's Liberal association attended the fall directors'  meeting at Liberal headquarters in Vancouver on Tuesday  of last week. She reports an  increased interest in tlie activities of the women's section of the Liberal association.  Canadian Forest Products  were hosts at an enjoyable  luncheon when the School  Board with Mr. Jeffrey, superintendent of schools, held its  regular meeting in Port Mellon  school on Oct. 13. Unfortunately only three interested members of the community appear-  o* at the meeting, Mr. Davies,  Mr. Macklam and Mr. West.  The lasc two meetings of the  Board of School Trustees were  held at Sechelt and Port Mellon to give the public an opportunity to observe the school  board in action, and so few  people came to these meetings,  it is doubtful if further such  meetings will be arranged.  The maintenance report revealed a quantity of tools were  misting from the manual arts  shop. Mr. Potter reported that  sometime during July and August the locks on the shop door  were forced and many tools  stolen. A detailed report has  been sent to the Royal Canadi-  : an Mounted Police. The board  has felt obliged to order the  necessary equipment to brand  ' all tools used in the high school  and other school buildings. Following is a list of the missing  equipment:  Belt sander, set of mortise  bits, tap and die set, hand axe,  T bevel square, aircraft snips  (left), smoothing plane, 4 - 4'  h?ir clamps and 2 circular saw  blades.  Blow torch, set number  stamps, set letter stamps, 2 - 1"  wood chisels, adjust spoke  shave, 3 G-clamps, sheet metal  gauge, 2 - 1 lb. ball pein hammers, Skil mandrel, and from  the science lab, weights for lab  scales.  Ten and 14 inch hack saws.  2-2' wood rules, 6 single cut  mill files, 6 double cut mill  files, 4 oz. ball pein hammer  and 2 wood clamps (Jorgensen).  Final arangements were  made to attend the British  Columbia School Trustees' Association convention in Victoria Oct. 19, 20 and 21. A full  representation from this district is expected to attend.  The board extended hope for  a speedy recover to Mrs. Sutherland, the school stenographer, who has been confined to  hospital in Vancouver. Arrange  ments for temporary stenographic help will be sought in  each locality.  A letter from the Association  for Retarded Children thahke-fi  the board for the use of a suitable room in the school hall  at Gibsons. Anyone interesteS  in this class is urged to contact Mrs, A. Moorcroft, of  Gibsons.  The salary committee was  requested to arrange a meeting with the teachers' salary  committee and arrange for any  further meetings.  Mr. Jeffrey reported on the  schools visited to date, and has  made arangements '-far M}rs.  Wiren to give assistance where  required, and also to arrange  for teachers to visit other classrooms. These inter-classroom,  visits have proven valuable to  the experienced teacher, as  well as for our new teachers.  Everyone benefits from tourists speaker says  The Sunshine Coast has a  great asset in its beauty and  stands to profit greatly if sufficient tourist business can be  attracted into the area, James  V. Hughes, executive vice-  president of the Vancouver  Tourist association told the annual meeting of the Sunshine  Coast Tourist association at its  meeting Sunday at Ole's Resort, Secret Cove.  Mr. Hughes who sat in on  the earlier executive meeting  said in opening his talk to the  general meeting that he found  the Sunshine Coast problems  were practically the same as  those of the Vancouver Tourist  association.  He asked if the tourist industry was worth building up  and if so, how could it be done?  Value of the tourist trade to  British Columbia last year was  close to the $100,000,000 mark  the work of clubs in California  and every man, woman and  child benefited from it. Anyone  who says he does not benefit  is wrong, he added-  The cost of selling our God-  given resources? was less than*  School  Meetings  To allow ratepayers to hear  what has been, done over the  year by the district school  board and also give opportunity for the taxpayer to ask  questions, meetings have been  arranged by the Sechelt District School Board.

As  advertised they are 6, 7 and 8  p.m. At the request of those  who have made reservations  with Mrs. Korda at the hotel,  the new times will be 7, 8 and  9 p.m. Reservations are being  made on the new times.  any other commodity and the  ' return was greater. People  'were today much more on the  move than in past years. The  changing situation was due to  greater speed on better highways which changed the outlook.  Those directly interested in  the tourist trade must take a  look at the magnitude of the  job. There is room for greater co-operation in a wider region. He said he hoped to see  the day when the entire Sunshine Coast, Greater Vancouver and Fraser Valley operators would band together to do  a  massive   job   on   attracting  tourists. He suggested mass  media advertising and cited  who worked over a wide area  while the individual local area  organizations did the local  work.  He thought Vancouver was  the prime market for the Sun-  snine Coast with the secondary market across Canada and  to the south as far as the U.S.Mexican border. He thought  something should be done to  offset the move to travel in  Europe and Mexico.  Consistent publicity was necessary on the local scene along  with person to person contact  in order to keep membership  Concerts draw many  Music lovers of the community are taking advantage of  the Overture Concerts idea of  signing up for the three concerts to be held this winter  season.  The first event, Nov. 13, will  see the Susana y Jose dancers,  ;���;& company of five or six per-  sons7"described as i;oday' s ��� greatest Spanish dancers, perform  in; Elphinstone High School  Auditorium.  Following that event Aliana  and Diard will appear in recital on a later date. Mr. Diard  was tenor with the famed  Chanticleer    quartette    which  Support urged  by Parker  James Parker, president of  Sechelt Board of Trade urges  all businessmen of Sechelt to  do their best to draw tourists  into the Sechelt area.  He suggested some businessmen were coasting along on  the efforts of others who are.  bringing tourists into the area.  He argued it was up to every  businessman to do his or her  part and not to be satisfied  with gaining without contributing.  The matter was brought to  the board's attention when the  application for associate membership obtained sanction of  members.  Mr. Parker also suggested  that something should be done  towards meeting a party of 80  from Vancouver area who will  be passing through Sechelt on  the way to Powell River to  attend a board of trade function there.  Three new members were  approved, George Naylor of  Porpoise Bay; Oliver Dubois  of Sechelt and Mr. James.  There are now 69 paid up mem  bers. The annual banquet of  the board will be held Oct. 24  in Legion hall when there will  be considei/jble entertainment  as there will be no speaker.

In March  it is expected Arthur Poison,  the Vancouver violinist who  made such a hit in one of the  previous concerts, will return.  In the meantime canvasser.?  are busy signing up concert-  goers all the way from Pender Harbuor to Port Mellon  -and it is expected there will  be quite a following from Port  Mellon this year.  The success of pervious concerts is attracting new members and canvassers are reporting an increasing interest in  the efforts of Overture Concerts in bringing outside top  talent to this area.  The distinguished Susana y  Jose dance troupe, acclaimed  in Madrid as "a fireworks of  fantasy and temperament,"  have taken all of Europe by  storm. Proud, elegant, "Watussi  warriors, so moved by their  performance in the Belgian  Congo, could only dance back  for them their own ancient,  elegant dances, and the dance-  worshipping Balinese broke an  age-old barrier by inviting  "Susana y Jose" to perform  before their sacred temple.  They bring with them on  their first North American  tour the indispensable renowned Flamenco guitarist Paco  Hernandez and Spain's leading Flamenco singer Manuel  Maircna.  HALLOWE'EN   FIREWORKS  Sechelt Kinsmen meeting in  the Totem Room laid plans for  a bonfire and fireworks display  on  Hallowe'en,  Oct.  31.  The display will be set off  from the end of the wharf in  Sechelt, starting at 7.30. This  year's display will be bigger  than the one last year which  was watched by a good-sized  gathering.  After the fireworks there  win De a dance for teenagers  in the Sechelt Legin Hall. Admission is free and refreshments will be served.  48 PRESENT  At the Oct. 8 meeting of  Pender Harbour PTA there  were 48 members present. Mrs.  Queenie Burrows was nominated vice-president of Sechelt  PTA council. Mrs. Fleming volunteered  as member at large.  Mr. Dombroski, director of  Sechelt school board night  classes expressed hopes of widening the range of night classes  if there is enough support.  A New Year's Eve dance in  the Cmomunity Hall is reported as likely.  TURN TO CRIBBAGE  Roberts Creek Legion decided at its last meeting on Oct.  9 to forego Bingo as it has not  been paying.  Cribbage will now be tried,  with a 35c entrance fee, the  first to be held on Oct. 30 at  8 p.m. It was also decided to  get hymn sheets for the Nov.  11 service.  On Oct. 5 the auxiliary voted their usual donation for the  blind, and final arrangements  were made for their bazaar on  Dec. 4.  m a tourist association at a  high level. The idea must be  sold that everyone benefits  from the influx of tourists.  Somewhere along the line everybody gets a share of the  tourist dollar and new funds  from tourist trade help lighten  the local tax load.  Mr. Hughes predicted we  were on the verge of staggering development in pleasure  boating and the Sunshine Coast  was in an excellent position t��  capitalize on it.  As regards off-season business he suggested pre-conven-  tion and post-convention trips  be arranged as people were  always looking for something  new to see and cuoh, business  could be developed.  Courtesy was a necessary adjunct to the tourist business as  one little item overlooked can  do a great deal to spoil a trip.  If there was any area in.  North America which could  benefit from tourist trade ii  was the Sunshine Coast and  the area adjacent to Vancouver. He said imagination would  be required. It would - take  time but the results would be  really worthwhile.  Cy Porter who came along  with Mr. Hughes spoke ox.  membership problems briefly.  R.C.M.P. HU  for Sechelt  Sechelt will get an RCMP  headquarters shortly, improvements will be made to Porpoise Bay wharf, some interesting news concerning the Sechelt Gibsons Municipal airport and the possibility of a TV  booster station, erected by CBC  were forecast by W.H. Payne,  Conservative member for Coast  Capilano constituency when he  addressed Sechelt Board of.  Trade Thursday night of lasi-  week, in the Totem Dining  Room.  Mr. Payne was not too hopeful of the completion of the  highway from Port Mellon to  Squamish inferring that such  road construction might have  to await completion of preseni.  Trans-Canada Highway projects. He explained that the  Trans-Canada Highway which  did end at one time at the  Second Narrows bridge now ex  tends to Horseshoe Bay.  A complete report of Mr-  Payne's talk will be found on  Page Six of this issue.  PTA ON READING  Elphinstone High School  PTA meeting, Mon., Oct. 26,  commencing at 8 p.m., will  have for its major theme the  subject of reading. Parents and  friends are invited to take part.  Mrs. Glassford will deal with  reading in the high school, remedial reading and a display  of controlled reading. Mrs. Fallows will deal with the place  of the library in studies an��  a reading program.

There are other ways but the most important one gets the  j*east consideration. That is to go to the source and learn at first  &and just what any situation is about.  If an editor published all he heard, few readers would  Save any faith in him because he would be publishing so much  .Sacorrect information. It pays to go to the proper source for the  .���information you require.  That is why those persons with children attending school  .should go to school board meetings arranged especially for them.  It is a source which shouud not be overlooked if you want to find  ��ut anything about school life in this community.  There are 12 such meetings arranged in the school district  and it is the privilege of any person to attend and learn from the  -proper source what is occurring. If you go take a neighbor with  3?ou. The information you obtain will be enlightening and possibly surprising. The list of meeting places and times will be  found on Page Ons.  A sound speech  W.H. ''3:11" Payne Conservative member for this constituency in the federal parliament made a good impression when he  addressed the Board of Trade in Sechelt last week.  He was w.ise enough not to go out on a limb and promise  She moon along with several other things. He strived to present  a reasoned answer to problems presented him and in no case did  ie sound like a politician taking the easy way out.  He faced facts and said quite frankly there was nothing  lie could do without public support. On this point he is quite  <��orrect. With a federal government striving to balance a very  mibalanced budget any demands for spending must have a reai-  Sr substantial and reasoned backing before the treasury will  give its necessary sanction.  Promises Mr. Payne did make seemed to be within reason and, unless something upsets the federal apple-cart, should  ib& accomplished. One promise concerned a TV booster station  ���for the coastal area which Mr. Payne said had been explored, by  -Sechnicians and stood in high priority on the things to do list.  ]For this, people of the area affected will be thankful.  Tourists help everybody  Tourist association members at Sunday's meeting heard  a speaker describe how tourist money reached the pockets of  everyone that lived in the area visited by the tourist. He said the  ���fewirists also help to ease the taxation burden in the community.  To some people the above may sound like double-talk.  Smch is not the case. There is more double-talk in the arguments  o�� those who say they get no benefit from visiting tourists.  If tourists refrained from visiting the Sunshine Coast  .���fiiere would be few motels and eating places. Motels and other  .types of housing for tourists must be built. After they have been  ���&uilt they must be made habitable. Quite a bit of material used  as obtained locally. This helps building supply companies in the  area.  The tourist using the now built shelter must necessarily  aeed food. This means eating places must have a supply of food  products on hand. Transport companies bring the food supply  iram. a larger centre for distribution to be sold through local retailers.  So in the case of food the transport companies, the food  ���merchants and the eating places all get a part of the tourist dollar  Tourists if they stay around a while require gasoline. Without  ���Srarist dollars fewer gasoline and service stations would be needed- So, the service station operation obtains a living and is able  ���to supply local residents with a better service because his income has been augmented by tourist traffic. He too must eat and  Slave some habitation.  This story could go on and on, depicting other businesses  who profit from tourists. The meeting was informed the provincial estimate of the amount of cash spent in British Columbia by  ���tourists was close to $110,000,000 annually. Some hits the Sunshine Coast.  We leave it to those who glibly say tourist money means  jwrthing to them to trace just what channels the money does pass  through.  How are taxes lowered by visiting tourists? Well they  leave more money for more people who can afford to pay taxes  and not put the burden on a few who would otherwise be left to  ^arry the burden. So remember, the tourist is a person to be cul-  -Sivated. Local people who cannot see profit in tourists are not  as dumb as they seem to be. They profit from tourists but won't  admit it. Let's face it!

ROBERT BURNS, Clerk  Letters to the editor  Editor: In last week's issue  you published an article by Alfred J. Charman, old "A.J.C."  himself. In the long past I had  much enjoyment reading the  column by A.J.C, and it is my .  loss that for years he has not  been  writing.  There are not too many men  in this world who can do things,  well, as Jack Charman can write;  the present article is an example: a few simple words put  together in a manner that they  really mean something, and tell  a full story. I suggest to my old  friend, Jack, that when he has  the gift (knack? training? ability?) to write like he can, and  thus give great pleasure to his.  readers, he should continue to  do so.  Perhaps I feel this more because I am among those who  "will 'follow you soon" to a  bourne of which we have no  knowledge, but from which mo*it  certainly none return.  Robert Burns  Editor: The group of residents responsible for arranging the meeting between themselves and officials of Black  Ball company to probe into  the repressive high fares anl  the all too frequent, breakdown  in service, deserves our high  praise.  From the Coast News report  of that meeting I note officials  cf Black  Ball  company  were  not asked  that   all  important  question as to why they find it  necessary to  hide behind the  privilege     granted    in     their  charter   which   exempts  them  from the Public Utilities Act?  If   the   Black  Ball   company  were operating under the Public   Utilities Act   as  our   own  Canadian   companies   have   to  their financial   operations  would have to be made public.  But the Black Ball company do  not   wish the  public to  learn  anything of their operations so  we will go on thinking that the  rates   charged   are   much   too  high and it may be that some  of the excessive profits made  on   the   Horseshoe   Bay-Lang-  dale run are used for other operations.  In a letter from our former  minister of fisheries, Mr. J.  Sinclair, when it was pointed  out. to him that the Black Ball  company was not under the  jurisdiction of he Public Utilities act, he stated that the  Black Ball company was the  only company in our whole  dominion, he was aware of,  whose operations were not. under regulation by some government authority. The former  minsiter was much amazed at  such a state of affairs existing  LOOK WHAT GAS  IS DOING NOW!  - Everything  that goes into  a GAS  FLUFFIER  FOR LESS MOM PER LOA  No warm-up wait with a Gas dryer.

LLOYD, Garden Bay  Phone TU 3-2353  Phone SECHELT 3  GIBSONS    HARDWAi  Phone GIBSONS 33  ia this day and age.  It is quite fresh in our memory that when Black Ball company moved to Langdale we  expected some reduction in  rates owing to the shorter distance the ferries had to travel.  But our hopes were in vain. It  was shortly after that, that the  Black Ball company raised the  freight rates just under the 100  percent mark.  The public found themselves  in a powerless position over  that astonishing freight increase as the Black Ball has  the power to increase rates  without let or hindrance whenever they feel disposed to do  so.  We did kick up a row about  the matter to the minister of  highways and to allay our feelings no doubt, a letter was sent  to us. from the deputy minister  to tell us that he had heard on  quite good authority that the  Black Ball company were  about to reduce their rates on  automobiles. The deputy minister evidently had substantial  reasons for writing such a letter but we do know there has  be*en no reduction in automobile rates.  J.he present government voted   down   a    resolution   that  would have conducted an inquiry into the necessity for  Black Ball to extract that extra nearly 100 percent from  us. Mr. Gaglardi then stated  he was of the opinion he personally could achieve more  than an inquiry. We still await  results!  The minister of highways,  Mr. Gaglardi and our government are the only hope we  have to get out of the desperate mess we now find ourselves in. All of our efforts  should be given to impressing  on these authorities the grave  handicaps we are suffering  through the high rates and miserable service of the Black  Ball company.  The ferry service dominated  as it is by American capital  is only a small part of the  overall economic picture. Our  telephone system and to a  large extent the other chief resources of Canada are also  controlled by American capital so that we seem to be reduced to the status of being  hewers of wood and drawers  of water for American interests. We cannot be free when  we are held in bondage by outside economic interests.  C.S. Cassidy.  2 families!  One family he digs for will live in a unit of a housing project  for which he is excavating the foundation. The other family  is his own ��� and includes four children. He is a good  "digger" for dollars and his wife manages them well. So  their family expenditures are kept in line with the family  pay cheque.  Public works cover a lot of ground. The budget of the  Minister of Public Works at Ottawa is in the millions of  dollars . .. and his department is only one of many.  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.

Hats  are  buff  ers  The surgical director of an accident hospital in Birmingham,  England, advise automobile drivers and passengers to wear hats  in the interest of safety.  Prof. W. Gissane said the first  thing a driver did when he entered his car was take off his  hat. Yet normal headgear wasi  one of the best materials to absorb and spread the force of any  direct impact on the skull.  "The cap I wear," he said,  when driving, absorbs about 60%  of the violence of a 4,000-pound  impact. A force of 5,000 pounds  is estimated as the force necessary to fracture the skull".

Before   warming  up  to  his  talk  Mr. Payne described the  functions of a member of parliament  and   handicaps  under  which they had to work. The  average   M.P.  spends   a   little  more than seven months in Ottawa and  the  remaining four  months of the year in his constituency. In Ottawa, a$ a junior M.P. he was alloted office  space along with another M.P.  which meant that when either  had   delegations   to   hear   the  other would have to drop his  work and get out which meant  that   the M.P. had the use of  office  facilities about 50  percent cf the time. His mail averaged from 25 to 60 letters a  day involving work with many  departments.   Then   came   the  work  on   the   various   departments with no two departments  having the same setup or type  of personnel.  Mr. Payne turned to breakwaters. Boards of Trade" and  all other organizations, if they  want to present a case to a de-"  partment in Ottawa must haye  a well-prepared, brief -otherwise their efforts will be fruitless.  Sechelt was apparently seeking a breakwater, he said, adding that he was quite prepared to work for it but he had  the least possible file onJt. The  Board of Trade should build up  a good file so that when the *  matter does reach the departmental state there would be  sufficient data on which to  press the point.  Mr. Payne outlined government policy regarding shelters  for pleasure craft. He said  there is one policy only and  that is shelters for commercial  cr fishing boats and nothing  more.. Basic cost for a Sechelt  breakwater has been estimated  at $530,000 which is quite a  hurdle to get over at the treasury department but with sufficient information^on the need  for such a breakwater, possibly  something would be achieved.  Basic facts are needed and they  Weddings  JENSEN���STOCKWELL  A pretty wedding was solemnized Sat., Oct. 10 when Karen  Kathleen Stockwell, daughter of  Mr. and Mrs. H. Stockwell of  Sechelt, the first bride to walk  down the aisle of Bethel Baptist  Church, exchanged vows with  Mr. Helge Jensen of Vancouver.  Rev. E. Jessop officiated. The  groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs.  R. Jensen of Copenhagen, Denmark.  The bride was radiant in white  lace over taffeta, with a coronet  of seed pearls- and shoulder  length veil. She carried a bouquet of rosebuds and white car. .  nations. Her bridesmaid, Miss ���  Ada Wilson, wore blue.  Mr. Ray Stockwell, brother of  the bride, was best man. Usher  was the bridesmaid's fiance,  David Crawford-Smith of .Guelph,  Ont., now attending U.B.C.  Based' on custom) Mr. Jessop  commemorated the first wedding in the new church by presenting a beautiful white bible  to the newlyweds. Mrs. Williard  Colbick of Vancouver, played  the wedding music and Mr?.  Thelma Prittie sang- "The Wed-  ing Prayer." ������^���^if^  Reception was held at the  home of the brides" parents  where a buffet supper, with  Thanksgiving motif was served.  Mr. N. Burley of Sechelt proposed the toast to the bride.  Out-of-town guests included  Mrs. Anna Prendergast, Mrs. S.  Fralick, Mrs. J. Wilson, Mr. and  Mrs. J. Pearl, Mr. and Mrs-. W.  Taylor, Mr. and Mrs. Max Jorgensen, Mr. and Mrs. F. Jensen,  Miss Gail Middleton, Miss Margaret Studer, Mr. Clements Pe-  kari, Mr. J. McDermid and Mr.  W. Scott, all  of Vancoouver.  After a brief honeymoon the  couple will reside at 318 West  14th, Vancouver.  ' LAND   ACT  NOTICE OF INTENTION  TO  APPLY TO LEASE LAND  In Land Recording District of  Vancouver and situate on North  Lake, situate south side of North  Lake approximately 43 chains  East of the outlet of North Lake  located at the west end.  Take notice that Lilian Laura  Browne of 8226 Government  Road, occupation Housewife,  R.R. 8 New Westminster, B.C.  intends to apply for a lease of  the foilowing described lands:���  Commencing at a post planted  on the south side of North Lake  approximately 43 chains east of  the outlet of North Lake, located at the west end; thence 3  chains east; thence 10 chains  south; thence 3 chains west;  Hhence 10 chains north and containing 3 acres, more or less, for  the purpose of summer cottage.  LILIAN LAURA BROWNE  Dated Aug. 29,  1959.  must be correlated so a complete picture can be presented.  People want lower taxes, a  balanced budget, also breakwaters and other things but such  projects must be warranted. He  said he worked with a committee in Ottawa to see what could  be done about shelters for  pleasure craft and a program  was drawn up involving annual registration fee and a gasoline tax but members in other  sections of Canada not having  the same problem, vetoed the  idea.  The breakwater added at  Powell River stood up to close  scrutiny with the federal department and if a good case is.  put up by Sechelt tlie same result can  be achieved... .  Headquarters for the RCMP  in Sechelt he expected would-  become a fact in a not too distant future as he expected estimates this   year   might. carry  the appropriation covering this  Anyway it was certain Sechelt  -   -would* have an RCMP building.  Covering mail services Mr.  :Payne said that there were IT  new or expanded services and  five new post offices including .  the rural route out of Sechelt *"  and the expansion of the Half-  ���   moon  Bay deliveries and   the  new post office at Garden Bay.  Mr. Payne, also outlined the  work ih which he was involved  during the ferry strikes, spending some three weeks in meetings and other negotiations.  Tackling roads and the  Squamish-Woodfibre road, Mr.  Fayne said present federal policy was that present commitments on roads must be completed before any others would,  be considered. He also dropped the hint that somewhere  along the line the Sunshine  Coast Highway could become  part of the Trans-Canada Highway.  The Trans-Canada Highway  now extends to Horseshoe Bay.  On Trans-Canada highways, he  said the federal government  contributes 90 percent of the  cost and the provincial govern-  ment 10 percent. Rogers Pass  section of the Trans-Canada  must be completed by March  of 1961 and until then nothing  further can be done about any  other highways, as far as the  federal government is concerned. When alternate routes are  to be considered, it was up to  the Boards of Trade to present a vigorous policy and push  for what they want bearing in  mind they must also be able  to substantiate their claims.  On Black Ball Ferry company problems, Mr. Payne said  the federal government was responsible only for marine problems covering safety, condition  . of equipment and items per-  ��� Wining to operation. Schedules  end fares were a provincial  matter.  Black Ball was unique in  that it has its charter from the  provincial highways department and not by the Public  Utilities commission. His advice was that when matters  arose covering the provincial  jurisdiction they should be referred to the PUC and if turned down PUC should be asked  to show cause for their action.  Federal matters should be referred to him, he suggested.  Organization of a coastal  protective service is now underway and while it would not  be equal to the U.S. Coast  Guard it is. at least a beginning. This organization will  have control over all marine  matters.  Mr. Payne said he expected  good news on the airport but  there were some wrinkles to be  ironed out. He thought the  coming estimates might have  something to cover the airport.  He   congratulated  the   airport  committee on its work so far  done and explained the brief  the committee presented was  really factual.  Dealing with part of his  work in Vancouver Harbour  area Mr. Payne described the  multiple obstructions which  block rapid handling of railway cars from one side to the  other. He explained a freight  car could leave Vancouver and  be in Revelstoke in the same  time as it would take to move  a similar car from the- North  Shore to say the CPR docks.  Vancouver port must be freed  Of these artificial obstructions.  It was at "this point Mr.  Payne dropped the hint that  something big can be expected  within a few days concerning  the pert of Squamish. What it  was and what was involved he  did' not say.  6    Coast News, Oct. 22, 1959.  James Parker president of  the Sechelt Board of Trade introduced Mr. Payne and helped to conduct the question period. Questions involved the establishment of a TV repeater  station along the coast to which  Mr. Payne replied the matter  had   high   priority   and   that  something  could be   expected  before too long.  When asked about Roberts  Creek breakwater Mr. Payne  reviewed past history on this  subject and suggested those involved help -build up a good  file on the issue so he can have  something to work on.  Better facilities for Porpoise  Bay wharf drew from him the  remark he did not think the  situation in that area would  be a.problem..too long.
