Commenting on" Hon. Phil  Jules Mainil, clerk, said, there  Gaglardi's- letter to Gibsons  council and to persons who'  have complained individually,  was a difference in Mr. Gaglardi's comments in the daily  press? and. his comments in departmental correspondence to  complainants'.  The issue appeared before  council when a letter of explanation from Mr, Gaglardi  wasi read. In it and others,; accompanying it, Mr. Gaglardi  said in effect it was not possible to supply a. fully adequate service for holiday peak  loads. Mr.- Mainil argued this  was quite different to Mr. Gag-  lardi'S attitude in the daily  press wherei he was reported  as telling Black Ball Ferries  it would have to build another  ferry to. accommodate. traffic...  Cbuhcil decided to write Mr;  Gaglardi and inform him it  did.not  think present service  $175 raised  Some 170 persons including  17 children attended the garden party at the Stenner home  Sechelt Highway, last Friday  night when $175 was raised  for the Peninsula hospital  fund. Some people left donations at the gate and others  unable to attend sent along  their donation anyway.  The committee which prepared this event is quite pleased with the result. The Kiwanis club arranged bingo tables  and supplied the needed equipment including staff to manage the games. Lighting effects  Strung around the garden came  from the Fair committee and  the Canadian Legion, Gibsons  branch provided dishes and  cutlery. Many local people supplied  tables  and chairs.  For a brief spell at the Stenner grounds it was thought the  "waitresses" who looked after  the tables were going to insist on a "bill of rights'* but  this was quickly quelled and  beaming behind their cigars  they appeared attired in their  pink and blue ensembles *  ������:.* On the sidelines was a coconut shy which drew quite a  number of spectators as well  as throwers. Door prizes were  won by Mrs. Gladys Brown  and Mr. Bob Norminton with  Eric Veale holding the ticket  for the children's door prize.  was adequate to handle traffic  at certain times. Mr. Mainil  was not alone in his views on  conditions  prevailing.  Contract for operation of  the" fire alarm system when  telephones in the area swing  to automatics was presented  to council for approval. Under  this contract the village will  pay the whole amount of the  system inside and outside Gibsons with the proviso that the  outside area, will pay Gibsons1  village their share of the entire cost.

It came quite close to the  house and was at one time  within six feet of it.  Advising the RCMP, Mr.  Galley continued watching the  bear's movements and police  on arrival decided they had  no alternative but to shoot the  animal as there were quite a  number of children living in  the area.  This bear was about three  feet in height with a 55 inch  spread from the tip of its nose  to the end of the rump. Its paw  was about five by seven inches  and it was estimated to weigh  about 250 pounds.

Once again the time has come for a warning. The situation  concerns the provinces and the federal government. The provincial premiers want more of the take Ottawa gets in cash. Ottawa  maintains the requests of the provinces are more than it can  handle.  Both parties naturally claim to have right on their side?.  The result will most likely Ibe a compromise with Ottawa doling  ��ut more cash for use of the provinces.  It is not likely any surplus the federal government! might  produce this year will have too much effect on government financing due to last year's whopping deficit. Therefore the, taxpayer, the main source of federal revenues must expect a tigiht-  ��ning of the belt in some direction. Perhaps one means of tightening the belt would be to heed the jocular attitude of one Prof.  Parkinson who originated what is known at Parkinson's Law.  To explain Parkinson's Law briefly, it means that a germ of  work within the civil service breeds more work resulting in a  pyramid which becomes expensive if allowed to continue its  growth.  The same Prof. Parkinson appeared recently before a committee in Ontario which is seeking ways and means of reducing  ithe expense of government. He offered as a start the abolition  of three small commissions thus saving some expense. However  governments are extremely slow in streamlining their opera-  lions and the lopping off of any department is a rarety.  But to get back to the warning ��� higher taxation is one  answer and inflation is another and they both go hand in hand.  Therefore the warning should be taken in conjunction with the  iormula the federal finance minister concocts.  The Coast News has at various times editorialized on government spending. The previous arguments still hold good. Whatever governments take from the public purse cannot be spent to  assist means of production. Maybe Lester Pearson had the answer in the last general election when he advocated reduced taxation to allow the public to spend more in keeping the ranks of  ihe unemployed at the lowest possible level.  There are those who will argue that reduced civil service  staffs will cause unemployment. This is possible but increased  productivity will also mean more people employed and less governmental paper work.  A not unexpected move  Premier Bennett's attitude at the Social Credit conference  ih Ottawa is one which should have been expected because if  one had noted carefully, B. C.'s premier rarely attributed any  specific policy action to Social Credit theories.  Actually he has a government which is Social Credit by  mame and nothing else. At no time has he ever indicated he was  preceeding on the policy laid down iby founders of Social Credit.  At Ottawa he told the convention the existing financial sys-  lem should not be blamed for its shortcomings; that Social Cred-  Sers.should be spreading the gospel that the Social Credit party  will make it work in their interests. This is a long way from the  ���aheories propounded by the generation of Social Crediters now  jading from the picture.  Mr. Bennett's government could be called ABC or XYZ and  atiil do its job of governing. There is no basic Social Credit in  liis governing imd there never hias been.  These new detergents kill "all" the germs on dishes when  Hhey are washed, TV ads claim, which leads one to wonder how  past generations managed to survive the germ-laden meals they  Sad.  By ANN WINTER EVANS  Do you read "Boats and Engines" in the newspapers? We  do! It's one of the most entertaining indoor sports. Every little while there would be one like  this:  Small cabin cruiser. Sleeps  two. Eight-horse engine in perfect running order. Seaworthy  hull. Fully equipped, ready to go.  price reasonable.  That would be good for a whole  evening's cruising, right by our  own fireside. Next morning we  might not even mention it. Both  of us knew that if there was'that  much money to spare it would  have to go toward the new roof  or other repairs.  We were quite busy with our  long-neglected house and garden  at first and contented ourselves  with a small boat and outboard  for local fishing. But before long  we "began to feel hemmed in. We  talked of the old days when the  children were still home and we  used to bundle them into our big  old lifeboat along with blankets,  tent  and  grub   boxes.   Camping  along the way we used to get as  far as Nelson Island by oar and  sail. Why couldn't we do it again?  We went over our marine assets.  Our clinker-built boat was  only a 12-footer but had proved  quite sea-worthy and we had a  two-horse outboard engine. From  camping trips in the Interior we  also  had a  two-burner  gasoline  stove and  air-mattresses ��� two  luxuries unheard  of in the old  days. Let's go!  We had to have some way to  keep our outfit dry so we made  a canvas cover for the bow and  stretched it over hoops giving it  the appearance of a covered  wagon. We. called it "Canvas-  back."  To tell the truth we felt a bit  venturesome. After all we were  fcoth in -the mid 60's We didn't  feel that way very long, however.  At our first anchorage in Smuggler's Cove, we met a very interesting couple in their 16-foot  boat with unique canvas cabin.  When we learned they were on  a cruise to Knight Inlet, had  been as far as Alaska in that  same boat and were in their middle 70's, our little trip to Nelson  Island seemed like a Sunday  Schpol excursion.  After three days in this delightful cove we continued on our  way to Cockburn. Running into  heavy seas as we started across  Agamemnon Channel we decided to go the long way round instead of up the outer side of  Nelson Island as we had always  done. As it turned out we not  only saw new country but made  some new and lasting friendships.  That night we camped in Green  Bay and next day went on our  leisurely way past Earl's Cove  and Captain Island and on to  Vanguard Bay where we had tea  and filled* the engine. Towards  evening we came through Blind  Bay and into a narrow channel  which, I call Arbutus Arm. Seeing a group of people at a little  wharf we stopped to ask if there  ���was any place around where we  could put up our tent for the  night.  Seeing a fine almost-finished  30-foot sail boat tied to the jetty  I asked the boy, "Is this your  boat?"  "Yes,"   he   replied.   "Dad   is*  building it but we all help."  ":.;  "When   it's   all  finished, you  ���-can sail to the South Seas," said  I, thinking I was making an original suggestion.  .* "We've been," my young friend  remarked casually. And sure  enough they had! In a 36-foot  schooner his father had built.  We found we had mutual  friends and camped near them  for several days, fascinated by  stories and pictures of their  cruise.  When we finally went on our  way to Cockburn we found our  old friends away so we left a note  and kept going. We made good  time (according to our standards) to Secret Cove ��� wind  and tide being with us.  That was three years ago. Since  then we have improved our equipment (we now carry two small  outboards) and have had many  interesting sea safaris in our  little "Canvas-back." Last summer we took our longest. We  went beyond Powell River and  Lund and into Melanie Cove.  Then across Desolation Sound  to Refuge Cove where we made  more���friends and ended up at a  barbecue.  ** Next morning we set out to  visit the Indian Village of Squirrel Cove. As we came near we  ���.saw the row of nicely painted  ' houses, the white church with  3-its tall steeple facing the beach,  and the gas boats anchored in  front. Very neat and modern but  not so picturesque of course as  it would have looked in the long  ago when there would be big  houses of cedar plank and the  long graceful cedar canoes pulled up on the beach. We went  ashore and visited Chief William  Mitchel and his wife in their  comfortable home. Mrs. MitciheL  is one of the few who still makes  the     beautiful     baskets of her  people.  It is_not always the longest trip  that is the most enjoyable. Last  May we only went as fai* as Cap  tain Island and it proved to be  one of the best. As soon as we  leffbur beach, we began to see  our feathered friends of the sea���  the dusky cormorants riding on  logs or flying with out-stretched  necks, sea pigeons with their  bright red. legs and little mur-  relets floating high and conversing in low, soft whistles. As the  boat approached they gave a forward spring and with a little  splash diived suddenly into the  safe green depths.  The killer whales usually migrate in huge schools but as we  came out of Wecome Pass we  had a good look at a lone one  with a spar fin five or six feet  high.- He rose right out of the  water, then dived and we saw  hiim no more.  As we came to the gap at the  sign of the white anchor on the  high rocks of Smuggler's Cove  it seemed like coming home. All  was as quiet as if "We were the  first that ever burst into that  silent sea."  A flicker gave his familiar call,  the white head of an eagle gleamed in the sunlight as he glided  above the tall firs, and a heron  was standing very still on a little islet hoping to catch an unwary fish for his supper. As our  boat came closer he flew away  on iris great strong wings. He  didn't even scold as they usually  do when disturbed.  As we carried our tent, sleeping bags and grub boxes ashore  we were pleased to see tLere was  a good crop of our favorite sea  spinach (goose tongue) at the  water's edge. We can't carry  much canned stuff in our little  ^oat so this solves the vegetable  problem.  We also noted that nature's  rock garden was as beautiful as  ever. Great patches of sea pinks,  tiny blue lobelia and yellow  monkey flower or mimulus on  the rocks with a background of  thick moss in many shades of  brown and green.  One of our first thoughts was  of water. There was just enough  for supper. Would the little  stream up the old logging road  be still running? April was a dry  month. Supper over, we walked  up the overgrown road and to  our delight a tiny stream of water was trickling from under <i  mossy log that looked like a fairy  grotto. We made a dam, put in  a little trough of bark and when  it" had cleared we drank deeply  of the clear cool water and filled our bag.  Everybody should take a trip  up this coast to make them appreciate that blessed gift of nature, good fresh water.  We often wish we had a bigger  boat, 16 feet or even 14, and  could carry more water and supplies. So we still read "Boats  and Engines'' ��� always looking  for the perfect boat. In the meantime we are happy to do oar  cruising the hard way.  If you are willing to do the  same, get yourself a chart, study  the little booklet "Safety Afloat,"  published by the Department of  Transport, pack your camping  outfit and you too can be a  yachtsman.

BRITISH COLUMBIA  TELEPHONE COMPANY  VH*23-2t.E>  Fallout shelters are an essential feature of the nuclear  age and should be incorporated in every British Columbia  home Hon. W, D. Black, provincial secretary has announced.  Mr .Black's statement came  as provincial and municipal  civil defence organizations in  conjunction with a national  program, launched a campaign  aimed at eventually providing  fallout protection for every  resident in the   province.  A feature of the program is  the federal booklet which contains detailed instructions for  construction of a basement fall-  cut shelter. This booklet,  which also contains information on how and when the shelter shoud be used, can be obtained by writing to the office  of the Provincial Civil Defence  Co-ordinator, Parliament Build  ings, Victoria, B. C.  "These shelters are not designed to protect against the  direct bljast effect of a < nuclear  explosion. But they will provide adequate protection in an  area covering thousands of  square miles that would be  contaminated by radio-active  fallout from such a blast," Mr.  Black said.  "Within a radius of three to  six miles from the point of  blast there will foe almost complete destruction with little  hope for survival. The most  serious threat to British Columbia is expected to pe from  random explosions or fallout  from attacks on more important targets. Beyond the blast  danger zone there would be a  much larger area.in which life  would be threatened by radioactive fallout. It is in this area  that the fallout shelter would  provide adequate protection."  "The suction action created  by a nuclear explosion," the  provincial secretary explained,  "draws contaminated particles  into the sky to create the familiar mushroom cloud. The radio-active material from this  cloud will be scattered over  the earth in concentrations  heavy enough to endanger human life for distances of up to  100 miles from the blast."  "The-radio-activity in these-  particles decays quite rapidly  and experts tell us residents  might start leaving the shelters! for short periods at a time,  after two or three days. Without the protection of the shelter, the radio-activity would  almost certainly cause death or :  serious damage to health.  "It is obvious from the size  of the area covered by fallout  that shelter protection is just  as necessary for those in small  towns and in rural areas as for  residents of large cities."  Government officials pointed out that while nuclear explosions are generally considered by the public as a wartime -problem an accidental  nuclear blast in peace time is  not impossible.  "An accidental explosion  could occur many miles from  where you reside and your  life would still be in jeopardy  because of the resulting fall-  cut. The need for fallout protection is great and I urge every British Columbia, resident  to give it the most serious consideration."  Logging camp  for  PLAN NO. 1096  AREA - I09G SQ. FT.

The delegates supported the  first by an overwhelming majority, thus demonstrating the  willingness of the membership  to assume more responsibility  for their own organization in  conjunction with the district  and provincial boards and with  the continuing interest and  support of the department of  argiculture, as pledged by the  minister, Hon. Newton P.  Steacy.  "Educate and Grow" was  the theme of the conference  and it was carried through the  sessions from the workshop,  iheld the first day, when 140  members attended, to the last  resolution and report. The  workshop, convened by Mrs.  ��. G. Woodward, director, of  Brentwood, featured Mrs. C.  L. Davenport, accountant,  whose contribution on keeping books and preparing for  audit,, was of great benefit.  The secretary - treasurer. Mrs.  JE. Robinson, Shirley, demonstrated the practical application of this talk.  Provincial board members  gave suggestions for successful  programming,, and Mrs. J. O.  Decker explained the growth  and development from the individual member to_the international body, the Associated  Countrywomen of the World,  the largest aggregation of rural women in the world, over  six million.  Both Mrs. Decker and Mrs.  Woodward stressed the importance   of   the   individual   and  her contribution to the whole,  a contribution that could be  most worthwhile when the  member is fully conversant  with the work of the Institutes  and so better able to help  those around her.  Discussion groups and buzz  sessions brought forth many  ideas and suggestions for administration and future program planning. The social side  was not overlooked: the nearly 300 members and delegates  were the guests of the department at a delightful tea in the  Faculty Club, through the  curtesy of the club members.  Five busloads of Instituters  enjyed a three-hour trip which  took them over to the north  and west shores and an evening coffee party was held in  conjunction with the showing  of slides and the reporting of  the delegates who represented  B. C. at the World Conference  at Edinburgh,  The Salada-Shirriff-Horsey  Company hosted the conference at a tea, when the generous prizes awarded annually  by the company for handicrafts were presented tlie  winners in the Quilt competition; East Chilliwack, first,  and   Clearwater,  second.  On the last morning election�� were held and the slate  cf officers for 1960-62 selected  were: president, Mrs. R. Partington, Francois Lake; immediate past president, Mrs. J. O.  Decker, Pemberton; vice president, Mrs. R. C. Palmer, Kelowna; directors, Mrs. E. G.  Woodward, of Brentwood Bay;  Mrs. Clyde B. White, of Willow Point; Mm Lyle Braden of  Dawson Creek, Mrs. J. M.

It was a day for the children, and field races for 3-  year olds up were the first order of the day, after which water races and diving events  rounded out a full afternoon's  fun. Meanwhile all regaled  themselves with free ice Cream  pop and hot dogs.  At 5 o'clock lunches were  brought forth and it was surprising how everyone was able  to do full_ justice to lunch after the hundreds of hot dogs  already consumed.  After lunch the adults took  a brief spell at racing and then  packed up to go home. All in  all the day was one of the  most successful to date.

Mrs. Hough is qualified to  carry this program, for as the  wife of the Superintendent of  the Experimental Farm at  Haines Junction, in the Yukon,  she as resident at the settlement for three years and during that time organized the  first Women's Institute, which.  is an affiliate of the B. C. Women's Institutes.  This institute was responsible for the establishment of a  new school, a library, a community "hall, and last fall, a  fair, where the hobbies of the  people and the fruits of the  soil were displayed.  6    Coast News, Aug. 4, 1960.

Where we go from here appears to depend  on three things:  V 1.

WE URGENTLY NEED TO REMOVE FEAR  "    that B.C.'s 1958 and 1959 grim record  of lost time through strikes will not  become chronic to discourage new job-  creating investments, and that politically the province will never be  dominated by a group of union business agents ambitious to add the  > control of government to their already  great power.  B.C. has long enjoyed the reputation of  being a safe and attractive place to invest  savings of people and of companies. This  confidence, one of its greatest assets, once  lost would take many years to regain.  No government distrusted as to its attitude  by those who decide where saved-up earnings will go can hope to keep B.C. people  employed and prosperous in the more competitive conditions now here.

"But I've decided that visiting with a pre-school youngster is too much o�� a trial on  my relatives, my child and on  me too. I think I'll wait for  film to go visiting until he is  older!"  If relatives are understanding, if they like children, it is  possible to have a happy visit, but it should be of a definite duration, and preferably a  short one. It is always wise to  leave when one's host and hostess are sorry to say "Goodbye!"  A child's schedule should be  observed as far as eating, sleeping and play go, but details  ican be a bit flexible while visiting. If an Aunt or Uncle or  older friend offer to take a  child for a walk, or to visit a  park or playground, do accept  the offer. A child and an adult  who are attracted to each other  can have a grand time on 'a  spree.' Don't worry about your  child's actions '��� he will likely be on his best behaviour  when your watchful eyes are  no longer observing his conduct.  It is a real adventure when  a boy or girl is old enough to  go on a visit all alone. An older child may be a bit homesick. But learning to be happy away from home is a valuable experience in the long,  slow progress of growing up  ��� of learning to stand on one's  own feet.  One small girl, who for her  age was a particularly nice  guest, when visiting her aunt  was asked if she missed her  parents. She replied, "I think  about them, but I don't *uss  about them. Mother doesn't  want me to be a 'fusser'!"  A child on a visit should be  SECHELT THEATRE  SAT..
