Briefs presented  at  This Campbell River hospital is of the type sought for  the Sunshine Coast area by the  committee which has been  working on the proposal for  more than a .year.  Some 80 persons attended the  public.;hearing in;���'Gibsons Le-'  gicn ball, Tuesday, when both  sides of the Routledge Gravel  Company application for foreshore-rights at Gower Point  expressed . their views.  One new fact brought out  was that Gower Point residents were not opposed to the  establishment of a; gravel pit  where planned but y werie opposed" to the granting of foreshore rights, which it was argued fabuld- spoil the sandy  beach there 'and'. cause: aV;deter-  A: E. Ritchey, chairman of  Gibsons village council who  represented Gibsons! and Area  Beard of Trade told the com-  missiorier how the board had  provided the means of giving  both sides a hearing at a board  of trade meeting and that eventually the board decided to  support Mr. Routledge's application. \  , Robert Christopher of Viscount Logging company pointed out 'that timber resources  were being depleted in the area  and that other means of indus-  Fine buck  ibratiohCin j-eal-.estate; yalue^    trial.^e&Wt'l would be .^cesr-.  ;'^toeh^thfe^��bn^s  WhehWth��: fcbii^  gested thaibthose ^people v who  had property involved; should  stand up, 40 persons rose;  Chairman was W. G. Flem-  ing, laiids commissioner and  government agent in Vancouver who on opening the hearing stated oral submissions or  typewritten copies could be  considered. The meeting was  not a judicial hearing tout a  formal meeting to get both  sides of the issue.  T. C Routledge, president of  the gravel company bearing  his name in outlining his brief  declared the granting of a  lease for development of the  gravel pit at Gower Point was  logical and necessary for development of the provincial  gravel situation because new  gravel deposits were needed;  There is an abundance of gravel in the province but not  much of it available oh the  same economic level a�� tidewater gravel would toe- There  were three gravel areas serving the Vancouver area and  these were becoming depleted. Gower Point deposits  would relieve this situation.  The company, he said, was  satisfied the operation would  not cause any appreciable disturbance at the loading end  which would foe well back  from the populated area and  separated from them by a  green belt. Only visible item  would be the dock.  The public would hot be  restricted from the  beach.  A good 'healthy industrial  project would help to develop  the community, Mr. Routledge said. There would -be  eight men each shift and suppliers would benefit from the  operation by making purchases within the area.  sary?^*F^cot*rage*a��^  be given ahy enterprise which  would help the local labor situation. Absentee landlords do  not contribute much to the  area and should not get paramount consideration.  R. W. Vernon of Gower  Point said Gower Point was  part of a larger area which required industrial development  for the future. His remarks  that  there   was   no   objection  Traffic came to a slow pace  on the Porpoise Bay road  around 10.45 a.m. July 15,  when a lovely spiked buck  held the attention of several  interested   spectators.  The beautiful creature was  wary but seemd to know he  had nothing to fear from his  admiring audience.

Provincial government officials in Victoria have approved )in principle a new hospital  for* the Sunshine Coast area.  Here is a copy of the telegram  serit on July 15 to the 'chairman of the board of management, St. Mary's Hospital,  Garden Bay:  I- am pleased to advise that  the provincial government has  approved in principle construction of a new hospital to replace the existing one. Confirmation wili follow by letter.  ������). Eric Martin, minister of  heflth 53rv,tces and hospital in-  ��ui;ance.  ^rqrk will now start on organizing a 'hospital ��� improvement district which will correspond to Sechelt School district area and within this territory move towards preparing  a plebiscite to ascertain the  wishes of the populace.  Committees will be formed  and the work parcelled out so  the volunteer effort by persons involved will not be too  heavy. There will be an organization committee, one to cover .construction plans and another to take care of informing the public of plans and requirements'.  A move towards establishment of a hospital closer to  centres of population was  launched Feb. 17, 1959 at a  pubjlic meeting in Sechelt's Legion hall when a committee  was organized to delve into  possibilities.  It was felt there was no possibility of getting any action  for-iiie building, even a 15 bed  hospital, until the situation  hady reached the point where  Victoria officials were impresr  sed the hospital was necessary.  The committee, announced  by chairman H. T. Hubbs of  Seltriia   Park,   included Dr. H.  and Sid McDonnell with Mrs.  William Haley as secretary.  Treasurer was T. E. Duffy. Mr.  Hubbs took charge of publicity.  With the closing of VON services on the Sunsnine Coast,  funds left on hand were voted  seme months ago, tc be set  aside for a hospital foundation.  With the setting up of a hospital study group it was realized  funds would be needed by this  group.  A special June 1959, meeting gave former VON members a chance to express their  opinion and to discuss with  i\ H. Norminton, secretary of  the group, the issues and requirements needed for forming of the study group. They  voted $500 be turned over for  immediate requirements with  a further meeting to be called  when more is needed.  There was some opposition  but in the final vote the general feeling' Was solidly behind the study group.  The tenth meeting of the  group set up by St. Mary's  Hospital Society to study hos-.  pital conditions was. held on  TCiurs. Dec. 3, 1959, in the B.C  Electric  office in Sechelt.  The group's original work  of assembling information into  a brief to show the need for  improved hospital facilities  was completed early in November. This brief was then forwarded to the minister of  health with the request that  members of the group be allowed to discuss its contents  witti, the officials in Victoria:  The brief contained approximately 50 pages of subjective  matter, graphs and charts and  included a map which illustrated the population distribution between Port Mellon and  Pender   Harbour.

Kamloops district has been  the hardest hit this week with  210 new fires reported; 161  were recorded in one day, most  of which, were attributed to  lightning. Vancouver district  had 172 new fires during the  week. Cost of fire fighting  jumped to $166,576, an in^  crease of $118,417 for the week  Fires still burning .number  258.  Costume party  The Kinette club of Sechelt  held its final meeting of the  season at the Peninsula hotel recently. The girls attended attired in pre-school children's costumes and sat down to an excellent dinner, before an evening  of entertainment started.  tithe club members reported  considerable activity during the  year. Last fall it held a cake sale  also a candy sale. The club donated $100 to St. Mary's hospital  and assisted the Kinsmen with  their polio campaign and clinic.  At Christmas, soap was sent to  mental patients at Essondale for  Christmas.  Last April and May the Kinettes did considerably towards  helping out in the May Day celebration. Members now have a  good start on a cross stitch quilt  which will be raffled later. The  club now has 12 members and  has room for more.  *Jbe Benner; Roy Greggs*, iHar-  olcl Roberts, Fred Jorgenson,  WZ* B. Boucher, George Page,  Jack Mayne, F.

Bud was proceeding at slow  speed through Gunboat Bay  Narrows when his engine suddenly became enveloped* in  flames. Hie attempt to cope  with thp blaze proving futile,  Bud dived overboard. Assisted  by a friend, Billy Erown, - he  managed to get a line aboard,  and towed the vessel into midstream, to prevent the leaping  flames from igniting the treea  on the sfoore.  Meantime, an observer ia  Gunboat Bay had put in are  alarm to the Harbour Volunteer Fire Brigade, which, at  the time, was engaged in a  practice at Garden Bay under  Fire Chief Harold Stickland.  Receiving the call through;  the efficient telephonic communications system, resort proprietor Jim Love drove'his car  to the lake and alerted -the.  brigade.  Within 15 minutes, the water taxi operated by Red Nicholson, with a crew of firefighters aboard, was at the  scene, and had the flames extinguished in -short order.  While it was not possible  to save the boat, the prompt  action of young Bud and Bill,  coupled with the efficient action of the brigade averted'  what might have resulted in a  serious forest fire.

This is the first time a shoot  on such a scale will be held  in this area with a local club  as host.  MINISTERS ON VACATION  Rev. T. R. Palmer and family  are spending July at Gower Point.  Mr. Palmer is minister at Grand-  view United church, Vancouver.  Another minister holidaying in  the area is Dr. and Mrs. H. Wallace. Dr. Wallace is assistant  minister at Ryerson United  church in Vancouver. The Wallaces are in the Grantham area.  BABY  CHRISTENED  Jannette Ruth was the name  given to the baby daughter of  Mr. and Mrs. Len Swanson of  Gibsons at the baptismal service  conducted by Rev. Denis F. Hariris at St. Bartholomews Anglican  Church on July 10th. Godparents  Were Mrs. Iva Peterson, Gibsons and Jan Bovenius of Holland  Mrs. Swanson's parents, Mr. and  Mrs. H. Bovenius who are visiting here from Holland, were  proxies. Mr. Jan Bovenius is Mrs.  Swanson's brother. Mr. and Mrs.  H. Swanson and family of Se-  dhelt, uncle and aunt of the baby  werelilso present. Mr. and Mrs.  H. Bovenius will be visiting until  September 1st.  G i'bsons Village Council  Tuesday night agreed to Sechelt Council's plan to increase  the Municipal Airport management committee from three  to five members.  Gibsons council named  Chairman: A. E. Ritchey to  work with Councillor Wes  Hodgson as Gibsons' members.  Sechelt members are Councillors Norman Burley and William Swain. New secretary following resignation of Ed Turner will be Dick Kendall, a  nominee of Elphinstone Aero  Club.  Suggestion was also made  that the new airfield be named after John MacDonald, a  member of the department of  transport who did considerable  work towards establishment of  the airfield. Mr. MacDonald  was killed some months ago in  an air accident at Ottawa.  Council endorsed a Gibsons  Board of Trade move that the  mail contract covering Gibsons, R.R. 1 and Port Mellon  which was held by Ray Rhodes  and is now in the hands of  H. W. Nohr of Vancouver  should be left in the hands of  Mr. Rhodes, who had supplied  an  efficient   service.  Under the new. contract, the  board complains, mail coming  frm Vancouver first goes to  Port Mellon and then to Gibsons, making Gibsons and area  mall delivery one hour later.  The beard's letter on this subject suggested the residents involved should have been consulted.

Mr. and Mrs.  Sam Kanae who crossed the Pacific to see the Connors marvelled at there being so much rock  available just outside their door.  In their home area they have to  walk miles to find rock of decent size and when located they  cost money and are not picked  up gratis.  ter recommended a boat be  available for RCMP emergency use, preferably a boat on a  trailer. Council supported this  idea which the Board of Trade  will place before W. H. Payne  M.P. for.this area along with  th problem concerning postal  matters.  Accounts totalled $201.08  and were ordered paid; $144.73  for roads, $37.28 for water,  $13.12 for general expense, $5  for parks and 95 cents1 for fire  protection.  Building permits were issued to W. D. Scott to build a  four room one storey home to  cost $6,000 and to Earl Hib-  bard for a $500 addition to his  home.  Dafann  launched  Daiann, christened by Mrs*-  Dal Triggs was launched successfully July 10 and is the1  second gillnetter of its type-  built in Gibsons. It was fashioned in the shop of Jaclc  Gooldrup and trucked to the  waterline. Dal Triggs is car*-  tain.  Some slight cabin modifications have been made which include a larger wheelhouse and?.  galley when compared witfct  the first vessel built in the  same shop. It contains electronics with a sounder andi  phone system. It has greater  comfort and convenience than,  older type vessels of its,- kindl.  The craft has been trying:  out its engine for some days  and is apparently in excellent  working order. Open house was;,  held after the launching when  refreshments were served tattle numerous friends who g.a-  thered for the event.  SAIL ON LINER  When the P & O liner S. S.  Chusan sailed for England  from Vancouver on July 2,  Miss Dorothy Cresswell and  Mr. and Mrs. Jack Cresswell  of Granthams Landing were  passengers.  Dorothy plans a five month  vacation in England and Europe before returning to Granthams, while Jack and Anna  plan on teaching in England  for one or two years.  On June 29 Dorothy was  guest of honor at a dinner at  the home of Mr. and Mrs. E.  Henniker where the staff of  the Bank of Montreal, Gibsons,  presented   her   with    a   silver   maple leaf pin along with their ~  good  wishes. MADEIRA PARK WATEK  The water rights branch sec-  lion in the annual report of the  provincial department of lands  and forests, commenting on tfer  Madeira Park water supply reads-.  "A feasibility report was prepared, showing that a community  water supply for about 170 existing residences was possible ii  there was sufficient local sup-  port. Paq lake was recommended  as the initial supply with Haslanr*  Creek being used later when*  Sunday, June 24, with Rev. financially feasible. It seems like-  David Donaldson as the officiat- ly the scheme will proceed once  ing minister. a district has been formed.  Mike Cassin hurt  Mike Cassin of Gibsons was  injured seriously enough Saturday night to be sent to St.  Mary's Hospital, Garden Bay..  Mike was moving shorewards  {-������wards the isolated dock irr  the bay when his outboard apparently hit a log. He was  thrown from tbe boat onto the  log sustaining bad facial injuries. Occupants of nearby-  tied up vessels rescued him.  Conveyed to 'the main government wharf, he was placed  in the taxi company ambulance*  after being checked by Dr. H.  F. Inglis. RCMP investigated  the case after assisting the  man   to hospital.  PURSE  FOUND  A girls purse containing money  was found on the Municipal  Beach, Gibsons, about ten days  ago.

Shangri-La attracts  The Shangri-La article from the Christian Science Monitor  in last week's Coast News written by Mrs. L. R. Linton of Roberts Creek, a woman who does considerable writing, might seem  to be just another article about tihe Sunshine Coast. Well it is  another article but it is one which has had an unusual follow-up.  The fact it appeared in the Science Monitor, published in  Boston, Mass., is the first to be considered. The second is that  this excellent newspaper has a world-wide circulation. Fact number three is that it is read by the kind of people you would like  to have as neighbors. Fact number four is that Mrs. Linton has  received to date some 19 letters from people in various spots of  the world, all showing some interest in the Sunshine Coast and  Mrs. Linton's Shangri-La.  Seated on a Sunday afternoon looking out onto Keatsi Island and writing this editorial as the ideas crystallize, watching  among the numerous attractions, water skiers, speedboats surging through the waves stirred by a south wind, bright sunshine  ��ver all in a cloudless sky ���- where is there a better Shangri-LaV  Some people do have to pass through mountains to get to it but  they do not have to be victims of a forced landing in an aeroplane. Thank you Mrs. Linton for expressing an idea which is  acceptable anywhere along the Sunshine Coast. There are many,  many Shangri-Las to be found.  -miSOYVWO \S ABOUT  '% TO BE REMINDED TO  fWGAR rilS LIFE PRESERVER  vH     AND  ��/\RPLUGS-  In the period 1953-58 certificates of Canadian Citizenship were granted 326,304 new  Canadians.

The British Columbia Social Credit League's booklet "Eight  Great Years" should be read by every taxpayer. The letter by  Premier W. A. C. Bennett on page one readis in part: "I hope you  will take the time to study this booklet carefully, for the accom-  ��� plishments of the Social Credit government were made possible  through your own support. Therefore ,they are, in the truest  sense, your own accomplishments."  Acco*��ding to the B. C. government review of finances published in August, 1959, page 44 reveals current government revenue for 1940, under another government at $32,826,438. The  same page shows the estimated revenue for 1960 set at $287,775,-  423.  The 1940 population was 792,000 at March.31, 1940.vToday's  figure is aproximately 1,600,000, more than double but the 1960  budget is at least nine times greater than the 1940 budget.  If the Social Credit League had not been able to produce  the facts that are in this booklet, in view of expanded expenditure, oblivion would have been the best way out for it.  The government most certainly has had the cash with which  to do things and the cash did not come from any Social Credit  theories or printing press. The cash came mostly from Mr. and  Mrs. Taxpayer so Mr. and Mrs. Taxpayer take a bow. Without  you the Social Credit League would not be able to publish  "Eight Great Years." In the years the Social Credit government  lias been in office it has collected more than two billion dollars  in current revenue, from you, mostly  The international scene  The slashing Krushchev foray in the diplomatic world is  liable to run out of gas somewhere along the line and a cooling-  off period should ensue. What the picture will look like then remains to be seen.  In the meantime his foreign policy and general trouble making experts can have a field day studying the speeches and actions of the Democratic nomination convention and later the  Republican convention. The Democrats did not pull any punches  and no dagger and cloak methods are needed to plumb what ails  the United States, rightly or wrongly.  It is a pity machine politics can hold sway. United States  would be better off, a good many people think, with Adlai Stevenson as president, if the Democrats win. Senator Kennedy is  without doubt a good man but he will need the broad vision of  an Adlai Stevenson in the foreign affairs field.  The speech made by the mover of Mr. Stevenson's nomination was one of the finest of the "convention and Mrs. Roosevelt  uttered words of deep wisdom as seconder. However the machine  had its way. A rigged convention? It does seem that way.  Grants for hospitals  Hon. Eric Martin, minister of  iteaith services and hospital insurance, announces progress payments totalling $101,040.03 had  "been authorized by the provincial  government for two B.C. hospitals. These outright grants represent payments toward major  hospital construction, of which  the provincial government pays  one-half of the approved costs  and, in addition, pays one-third  the total cost of equipment and  furnishings.  Lions Gate Hospital, North  Vancouver, will receive a progress payment of $88,127.11 as  part of the provincial government grant of over $1,800,000  toward construction costs of their  new~~283 bed hospital. The multistorey building, expected to be  completed in December, will be  the largest hospital in the Province to emplay the "double-cor  ridor" design, in which the patients' wards are located on the  outer perimeter with nursing  services and utilities forming a  central core.  The new Burns Lake and District Hospital, Burns Lake was  authorized a payment of $12,912.-  92 towards the cost of their new  236 bed hospital which will be  opened officially in August. The  hospital is a single storey frame  building, providing a full range  of general services.  Other B.C. centres with new  hospitals under construction include Kimberley, Dawson Creek  and Terrace. Gross construction  costs for these projects will exceed $3,500,000 and bring 148  new beds into operation. Three  other communities have already  completed construction of new  facilities this year; Golden,  Prince George and Kitimat.  Where was the Talbot  settlement? f  In southwestern Ontario. Thomas Talbot in the early years of  the 19th century obtained from  the British government a'��������� grant  of many thousands of acres in the  Lake Erie region, establishc-d  himself at Port Talbot on Lake  Erie and gave his name to the  capital of his settlement, St.  Thomas. Many prosperous communities in the Ontario counties  of Essex, Kent, Lambton, Norfolk, Oxford, Elgin and Middlesex owe their origin to hiss colonizing efforts. Born in Ireland in  1771, Talbot followed a nfilitary  career until settling permanently  in Upper Canada in 1802. He ha<i  previously spent four|ye|rs in  Upper Canada on military duty,  part of the time as private secretary to Lt.-Col. John Graves  Simcoe, the Lieutenant-Governor.  A picturesque figure in sheepskin coat and fox-fur cap complete with ears and tail, Talbot  governed his vast settlement in  almost patriarchal state for nearly 50 years. He never married. In  1853 he died in London, Canada  West. "���     . y   '*?*.  *      *      *    ..'   *at   y :  Who was the first protestaht *  clergyman in Montreal?  John Ogilvie, an Anglican chap-  Iain.

Shortly after his ordination he became  a chaplain with the colonial  forces in the Seven Years' War  and from 1760 to 1764 he was  stationed in Montreal. His register of births, deaths and marriages for this period is still in  existence. Ogilvie died in (New  York in 1774.  :fc      rfc      >��:  How many prime ministers have  survived defeat?  Three Canadian prime ministers have survived defeat to return at a later period to lead  their country's government. Th?*  thee have been Sir John A. Macdonald, Arthur Meighen and William Lyon Mackenzie King. Macdonald, after six years as prime  minister, was defeated by the  liberals under Alexander Mackenzie in 1873, but he was returned to power in 1878 and continued in office until his death  in 1891. Meighen, leader of the  government in 1920-21, was defeated by King but again took  the reins of office for a short  period in 1926. King, who had already given way to Meighen in  1926, was defeated by the Conservatives under R. B. Bennett  in 1930 and for five years remained as leader of the opposition. In 1935, however, he regained office and served as prime  minister until his retirement in  1948.  *** *V* *tP  What is the   first  meridian?

Steacy, Minister  Department of Agriculture ��� ���   V"  V5I91-2 Coast News, July 21, 1960.  Bothered  by bats?  Bats   often   establish   colonies  in attics and walls of dwellings  in   rural   areas   and   become   a  nuisance.  But, advises the Canada Department of Agriculture's Research Branch, bats are harmless and useful creatures that  feed exclusively on night-flying  insects, many of which are destructive pests.  Get rid of the bats, say the  researchers, but don't destroy  them.  Ah effective repellent is two  to five pounds of naphthalene  flakes scattered in spaces occupied by bats. If applied during warm weather, reports claim,  this will prompt bats to leave ���  even in daylight. They will stay  . away as long as the naphthalene  odor persists.  After the bats have been evicted, __all openings three-quarters  of an inch or more in width, such  as small crevices around the  eaves and at the bases of rafters,  shoulS be filled. Cracks at the  base oT the chimney should be  fiUed with cement.  If these openings are not closed after the bats have been driv-  > en out, the supply of naphthalene  must be renewed periodically to  i prevent their return.  j     Fumigation  will  kill  bats,  although use of poison gas is re-  \ commended only as a last resort. ..,  Hydrocyanic  acid   gas,, although  highly effective, is also extreme-  [ ly   poisonous   to  human  beings  '. and should  be; applied  only  by  : a licensed fumigator.

inadequate to serve the population of the area.
The final recommendation
was that planning begin immediately on a new 50-bed hospital, centrally located to serve
the entire area between Port
Mellon  and Pender Harbour.
The Deputy Minister of
Health, in acknowledging receipt of the brief, complimented the local committee on the
calibre of the presentation. In
discussions with the administrator of St. Mary's Hospital
he noted that it was the best
brief  they had received.
Meanwhile, the study group
had started preliminary planning to establish a Hospital Improvement . District whiah will
be able to raise money to finance the hospital construction.

from the Sunshine Coast sat
down in Victoria with officials of the Department of
lieaith and Hospital Insurance
to discuss a new hospital for
this area.
Tne men, Mr. A. Lloyd, Pender xiaroour, Or. A. Swan and
xvir. A. ooansion, DOtfi of oe-
cnelt, and Mr. L. Hempsall,
jt^ort Menon were all members
of i/.-e St. Marys Hospital
btudy Group wnich had prepared the brief describing the
need tor a new Hospital.
The main purpose of these
discussions was to explain any
points not clear in the brief
and to establish the reliability and accuracy of the figures
presented. Tne discussions
were held witn the aeputy
minister, the assistant deputy
minister, the construction supervisor, tne administrative 'assistant and a member of the
statistical  department.
Last Marcui, the committee
was advised toy Mr. Andy
Johnston, vice-chairman of the
fact-rinding smb-committee tkat
all arrangements for the plebiscite will be handled by the
government although the expense must be borne by the
committee forming the Improvement District.
This district, will be an area
whiah has been legally defined
for the purpose of raising
funds for hospital construction. In the case of the Sunshine Coast the Improvement
District will coincide roughly
with Sechelt Schooi District
No. 46.
Once the formation has been
authorized by the landowner
plebiscite, trustees will be
elected from the various* areas
included in the district. It is
these elected trustees and not
the members of the present organizing committee who pass
by-laws to raise funds for hospital construction.
Since the organizing committee was formed, some 18 meetings have " been held by the
two committees and a considerable amount of work done.
The construction committee
has surveyed several hospitals
and interviewed numerous .architects and examined quite a
few sites so as to get the best
possible   location.
Names of members of the
construction committee were
announced in June and are:
John Harvey, Gibsons; Les
Hempsall, Port Mellon; W.
Milligan, Pender Harbour; Dr.
A. Swan, Sechelt and Pender
Harbour; Bob -Ndrminton/' Se—
chelt; Dr. H. Inglis, Gibsons
and Harvey Hubbs, Selma
Park. This committee has power to add to its number as required. It was also announced
that Al Lfody of Pender Harbour had resigned from the
organizing committee. This
was a blow to both committees who had learned to depend on Mr. Lloyd's experience and judgement^

That has different individuality — the desire for something different — seems to be the first requirement in choice of a house plan,
and in this plan our designers have turned the trick. Particularly
suited to a lot tfliat slopes to the side, (if your lot slopes to the other
direction, simply reverse the? plan), ifchis split entry type of house
gives individuality and lots of room for living. Living dining area
runs the full depth of the house — which ever way ^he view faces
you can take advantage of iti The open planning with the fireplace
in the outside wall leaves lots of room for arrangement of furniture.
Double plumbing is another good feature about this house, with the
master bedroom showing the. plumbing "en suite," but back to back
with the main bathroom for economical installation. This house has a
garage under because of the sloping lot which makes it particularly
suitable for a small lot. We. show it here in our sketch against a
background of magnificent mountains, butt it would look well on any
building site. It is designed for N.H.A. approval, and working drawings are available from the Building Centre, 116 E. Broadway, Vancouver 10.

Muir, Pacific  Gravel company said he was  planning to develop a gravel  pit in about the same area but  found trucking to Gibsons  wharf neither practical or economical and said some offshore means would have to be  found. He wanted the lands  department to keep in mind tne  fact that he would be making  an application for a foreshore  lease. Mr. Muir's brief concluded the case supporting the  application.  Hak'ord Wilson, an alderman from Vancouver represented Gower Point residents.  Mr. Wilson is also a property  owner there. His brief was offered in the names of 48 property owners. Mr. Wilson said  they were not opposed to the  development of gravel deposits  in the area but were opposed  to the method of shipping gravel to market as proposed by  the company.. The property  owners were opposed to leas*-  ing government foreshore  rights to a private firm for its  exclusive  use. and profit.  Argument against, he said,  was the area possessed the only stretch of shallow sandy  beach between Sechelt and  Gibsons. There was also increasing use, he said, of the  area by people from areas surrounding Gibsons. Visitors  from Vancouver also used the  beach. Here he explained some  visiting teachers, shocked at  the prospect of the proposed  lease registered a voluntary  protest with the minister of  recreation.  The brief also argued dredging for the safe berthing of  scows and tugs would convert  a safe beach into a hazardous  and treacherous bathing area  Dust would t>e a continuous  source of annoyance, noise  would be a disturbing factor  and most properties owned  by pensioners and retired people would be adversely affected.  The brief also pointed out  that federal authorities knowing of storm.. effects in this  area had failed to establish  wharf facilities because of occasional severe storms. Mr.  Wilson argued the gravel  ' should be trucked to Gibsons  and loaded there on scows, in  sheltered waters. The brief argued that because the federal  government had stopped all  gravel   operation   in   Vancou-  &IRECTORY  (Continued)  ELECTRICAL  CONltU.CTORS  SIM   ELECTRIC   LTD.

The    fact   this   area   might  need  lots   of  gravel  later   on  was  advanced by Mr.   Wilson  in  the   brief  which  suggested  there   were   plenty   of  people  with  gravel in   tiie   mainland  area who would be quite willing to dispose of it. There was  also the possibility of contamination   of   the   watershed   as  the  proposed  pit lies   on ths  north    of    Townsend    Creek  which supplies domestic water  for  a   number   of   households  and is   the emergency supply  for all when other creeks dry*  up.  The brief also stated the original subdivision : agreement  made between the government  Mr. Chaster, Mr. "Whittaker  and Mr. Cassidy preserved for  all time access and use of the  foreshore  by the public.  Concluding, Mr. Wilson said  the Gibsons Board of Trade  were in full support of the  application. It is not the purpose of the . Gower Point property owners to disturb the  good relationship which exists  between residents of Gower  Point and the merchants of Gib  sons. However, : w-e. would  draw to your attention the fact  that it is the kind of hodgepodge waterfront development  allowed to develop in beautiful Gibsons Bay that the people of Gower Point are attempting to avoid.  - "We fail to see the right of  the Board of Trade to enter  into a matter which concerns  the applicant and the affected  property owners of Gower  i-'oiht. Lt should be further  noted that at least one member of the Board of Trade supports this brief and no doubt  there are others," he said.  "The merchants and people  of Gibsons opposed the Black.  Ball Ferry terminal. They successfully opposed the establishment of a booming ground.  Some have expressed great opposition to the gravel trucks  passing through the village.  Why should their representations be incuded in your, deliberations when we are only  following an example which  they have carried to the extreme?  "The people of Gower Point  are prepared toA live with an  obnoxious gravel pit in the  interest of growth and development, but the residents of  Gower Point do pray that you,  ihe Department of Lands, and  the Provincial Ministers, will  recommend that the foreshore  will remain as a beautiful  boast line for the use and enjoyment of the public.  "In concluding this submission, it is the earnest desire  of your petitioners that every  official and the honorable ministers concerned with the grant  ing of a foreshore lease to the  applicant will carefully consider and weigh the motives behind the application of the  Routledge Gravel Co. Ltd. and  the motives which have causi-  ed the property owners of Gow  er Point to so vigorously oppose the application."  Following Mr. Wils-m's presentation of his brief others  took part in the argument  against granting the lease and  supported Mr. Wilson\? remarks. Mr. Chaster added remarks about Gibsons. He regarded the beautiful Gibsons  Bay as a great tragedy. Some  day the village would have to  buy the land to make ,it into  a recreational area available  to the public, he  said.  Letters from residents of  Gower Point area were added  to Mr. Wilson's brief and filed  along with it. J. R. Blackburn  of New Westminster representing Mrs. Jean Bow outlined  Mrs. Bow's property which he-  described as being menaced  by the gravel pro*ecf *)* ���-"��s-  5;'ng the water angle, the commissioner of the hearing pointed out that Hie *"''��� ���**- ri^s  branch would enter into the  picture just as ?ocn as it was  feasible.  Robert Christopher of Vic-  count Logging company urged  that the department should  take a wide view of the situation in assessing the oroblem  as it affected the whole of  British  Columbia.  Commissioner Wesley Hodg-  pnn of Gibsons rose to ask  th?t the remarks concerning  Gibsons should be exounged  from the record as he did not  think they were in sood taste.  Later Chairman Ritchev of the  village "ouncil suo^rt.ed Mr.  Hodgson's remarks adding that  GiK^rvn*?, was. no  slum area.  Following presentation of  the briefs rebuttal was offered  by both sides which largely  clarified minor points and  cleared up the misunderstandings. Buoys plainly mark some dangers  met afloat.

Wherever they are,  it costs very little  to tell them you're  home safe, home  happy, after a wonderful time!  BRITISH COLUMBIA  TELEPHONE COMPANY  V6023-8LD  SWIM TIME  Swim time should have an important place in every child's vacation. This is a skill which  every one should acquire. How  many never learn how to swim is  shown in the large number of  drowning accidents where non-  swimmers lose their lives. Each  year around one thousand Canadians are drowned. The fact .is  that only one Canadian in ten  can swim.  It is true that some times a  good swimmer is seized with a  cramp or gets into a panic if his  boat capsizes and he loses his  life by trying to swim to shore instead of hanging on to the boat  (until rescued. But the great majority of water tragedies take  itheir toll of life from the ranks  of non-swimmers.  *T��      *���**���;      ;jc  Service clubs and communities  who provide instruction classes in  swimming are to be warmly commended. This- is a fine and constructive thing to do. Boys and  girls have the thrill of working  in a group   under a   competent  teacher They are eager to learn  to swim and their own keen desire makes them ready students.  Parents can help by encouragv  ing their child to be on time for  each session and faithful in their  attendance.' They can also show  an interest in their child's progress.   It  is   only   courteous for  mothers and  fathers  to express  their   appreciation   for   a  good  swimming class. Let both the instructor     ahd    the    sponsoring  group know that you think this  project worth while,  was over, would make this a real  dhildren have not the privilege of  attending a swimming class? In  some cases, a boy or girl can go  to   camp   There,   time to  learn  to  swim  is given  an important  place   in   each   day's   program.  Hundreds   of   Canadian children  learn.to swim at summer camps.  Even    at   the    shorter camps a  large number  of boys and girl;  made their first real start in becoming proficient  in the water.  *     *    *  Sometimes it is possible to persuade an older, responsible boy  or girl who is an expert swimmer to help three or four youngsters around the same age, who  are chums, to learn to swim. A  parent would provide the necessary transportation   to   a   swimming spot and supervision of the  little   group.   A   simple   picnic  meal  after   the  swimming class  was over, woudl make this a real  treat for each child. The. parents  could   each   contribute   a   fixed  Folder helps  save babies  "Plastic film and your Child's  Safety" is the theme of the folder distributed by hospitals to  every mother of a new born  baby. It contains simple rules to  guard against misuse of ultra-  thin plastic, which has caused  death by suffocation to over 20  infants in   Canada  during 1959.  One of the most common ways  of misusing the material has been  to substitute the air-tight plastic  for a proper crib mattress cover.  A baby, pressing its face against  the clinging plastic film, can suffocate in less than one minute.  Distributing this folder to new  mothers is part of a large scale  public education campaign which  has been conducted nationally  since August 1959. B.C. Safety  Council sponsors the campaign  in this province.  _        I        By   Nancy  Cleaver  wlSIIJpr Copyrighted '  amount to pay the young instructor.  If mother or dad, or both parents,    can   swim,   and   love  the  water,'their children can quickly  learn to swim if only they will  take time   to teach  them.  Plan  for a number, of "Swim Trips'*'  on father's half day or during the  weekend.   Families   who   go   to  summer cottages usually have a  deiTnite  time  for   swimming  in  the  late  morning   and   in  mid-  afternoon    each   day., Children  playing oh a beach pr in the witter must always be watched. The  faster they learn to swim well,  the   less   is   the   danger   from  drowning.  Praise and encouragement must  be expressed by  any  swimming  teacher.  Never frighten a  chiia  or shame him in your eagerness  to have him learn to swim. Fear  of the  water  and  timidity will  only   retard   his   progress.   He  needs to master how to breathe  properly in the water. This can  be practised at home by a child  holding his breath and and putting his face under water in a  basin or tub. He. can also learn  to- ooen his  eyes  under water.  Teach him t6 "Be a Jelly Fish"  ��� take a deep breath and clasp  both ankles with both hands in  the water. To his surprise he will  discover how easy it is to float.  *   ���*    *    ���  Once he" has gained self-confidence in his ability to stay up in  the water, let him use the "dog  paddle." He will soon get a wonderful thrill from going through  the water "on his  own  steam."  The swimming periods should  never be so long that a child becomes "sick and.tired" of swimming or gets a chill. Keep the  swim time brief except in very  hot weather. Have a play in the  water with small boys and giris  separate from practising their  strokes. Swim Time should al-  wayg~be a happy occasion���whatever the age of the would-be-  swimmer!

Sechelt S6  Welcome   Beach   Hall    was  filled  to   capacity   when   the  Redwel Ladies Guild held  their annual summer fair.  Strings of flag�� fluttered in the  breeze at the entrance, inside,  the attractive tables of sewing,  flowers and good things to  eat, colorful jewelry and the  leaded white elephant stall  made a gay scene.  Mrs. A. Grundy, president  of the guild, welcomed everyone in a neat little speech and  introduced Mrs. W O. Richmond who  opened the fair.  Mrs. Richmond spoke of the  work undertaken by the group  and remarked that two ladies  on vacation had offered to assist at the tables, so everyone  should help in another way  by purchasing some of the  wonderful   things   on  display.  At the sewing table were  dainty aprons, skirts', cush-  ins and novelties. The White  Elephant stall was laden with  a remarkable showing of useful and ornamental articles.  The jewelry stall wasi attractive with its display cf necklaces and earrings, bracelets,  etc. charmingly arranged . by  Mists Nell Ross who is holidayr  ing here. Masses of flowers  were arranged  down the  cen  tre tables, complimented by  the green of various plants.  Sweet peas and roses shedding  their perfume scented the hall,  and made an attractive picture.  Home baking soon disappeared, the pies being in great  demand. One member had  made ten.that, morning, an angel cake * and dozens of rolls  and cookies. Bread, brown and  white and cakes and cookies  were a  complete sell-out.  At tea tables, attractively  arranged to seat four, centered  with bouquets of flowers, tired  shoppers relaxed and enjoyed  the cakes and fruit breads  served with tea or coffee. Mrs.  Queenie Burrows delved into  the future,  reading  tea   cups.  Raffle tickets were drawn  ���and winner of the quilt was O.  Moscrip of Selma Park; the  doll and wardrobe was won by  little Susie P-ayne who drew  her own ticket. Wayne Bath  who is visiting here from Victoria won the water melon contest.  - In charge of the tea room  were Mrs. E. Klusendorf, Mrs.  R.
