Accounts  totalling $1,077.92  were ordered to be paid.  A lengthy discussion on  building bylaw requirements  respecting the erection of a  house on property where a  store is now situated took  place. Under the bylaw there  must: be a required amount of  land around a house separate  from the store. An alternative  would allow the house to be  attached to the store, if thei'e  was not sufficient land for  separate buildings. The matter  was filed to allow the presentation of a new plan.  The mntter of arranging to  provide rent for Civil Defence first aid classes was  brought, forward by Commissioner'Peterson.  He also reported on the motor of the old fire truck and  it was proposed to arrange  for installation of a reconditioned motor at a cost of $500.  A motion to investigate and  accept the proposal if satisfactory was passed. Some help  towards the cost of this motor  will be sought under a Civil  Defence arrangement.

Boards of Trade were unable to supply it���and they  certainly should be able to. Provincial, gpyja-iiment pamphlets have barely mentioned the- regioji. This -meant there  was apparently nothing worthwhile available to,place into  a newcomer's hands for his or her perusal.  The mail recently produced something from an unexpected quarter and it does an excellent job geographically as.well as in health matters. It is the Howe. Sound Public  Health Service anhual report���the first the service has  ever issued. Those person's'who compiled it can be congratu:  latd for their effort. At-the end of the short introduction  to the report the last paragraph reads: "This is the first  . effort on the part of the Public Health Staff to provide an  annual report to show the work earned out in tjhjs territory and we hope that its shortcomings will be-overlooked  on this our first effort in the field." -  What shortcomings? It might be that the varied  statistics presented have not been broken down by an expert to prove this or that or it might be that there ia ;no=  fine paper or color printing. These items can be dismissed  as inconsequential. The^report. is an achievement not; only -  in its compilation'.and production but in1 its,contents.  ..������'��� ���.').   ti yon; wonder What'.jthe ;Pui)ljlc"Health Service does,  get hold of a copy pf the report and follow through from,  section to section and read of the amount of work involved  and what is done and where they go.  The report reveals what many persons are thinking  about daily and which some people are facing squarely  while others are striving to avoid. -The report .on this  point will speak for itself as follows:  "Some communities. in"'unorganized', territory.,   are  now building up at such a speed that problems of building  control, drainage control and garbage disposal are become  ing acute. In most cases there is no interest in incorporation owing to a possibilty of increasing taxes: A good provincial plumbing'bylaw would be invaluable in this terri*  ,tor^.^:C^nsiderable Rouble is also experienced with -garbage  'dlsjfes^^uitek ibfc'of^umping is^akihg;^laci alohlg?rpads  and where dumpshaVe. been provided,;   the   problem    of  good maintenance of these exists. However, with educational talks given throughout the area,   it is   hop^d  that  Abetter control of the garbage problem, will at least be  attained. In provincial territory, garbage dumps set up and.  maintained by the government might be   the   answer   to!  "this problem which no doubt exists throughout B.C."  There is no argument that this is a vital paragraph;  in the. report but why do people have to be prodded by  governmental authority before thejr will take sufficient  care of their own lives. One of the firsts that must be observed when living close to nature, is reasonable sanitation.  Good sanitation is the best of insurance. The few pennies  saved do not start to cover possible doctor's bills.  Editors ARE human too  , The reason for this article  which should have appeared  last week but got squeezed  out is to acquaint varipus people on the Peninsula with  some of the tribulations a publisher faces. For instance we  are asked to, if we can, cover  -.this event or take time out to  come and visit this group and  so forth.   .  Suoh invitations are received  but no definite promise is  ever made that it* will be covered  or visited-by   any   memr  ��� ber of the staff: ..: There is.'a  reason  for. this...'��� The staff of;  'The Coast .News is composed  of- human ..beings capable _' of  doing so-much  work..   .. *  '-���- As a sample, take this past  week in .the life, cf the editor."  Monday night, he was. working  in the composing .department'  helping get some of the" pages  lined up for the week's issue.  Tuesday night he attended the  "Village Commission meeting  which started out at 7 p.m.  and finished at 10.30 p.m. He  was busy writing some of the  copy when the fire alarm  sounded. He went pn writing  but when the second alarm  sounded, he ascertained from  the phone office where the  fire was and how serious it  appeared to be. The information lie received sent him posthaste to the scene. He stayed  there until one o'clock.  Next morning, the day on  which the  paper was    to    be  printed, he was on the job  right on time, began pounding'  off copy en the fire and arranging for the coverage of  other- detail following the fire  ���what, was being done to  help the victims of the fire  and such like. This caused a  couple of hours delay getting  the paper to press.  "' Wednesday evening saw the  editor working with others on  getting the paper ready for  ^mailing to'subscribers. Thursday evening, as a public-minded citizen supporting worthy  . causes, he attended the Powell  . "River High School band concert in Elphinstone High'  School, which by the way was  worth' attending."' Friday night !  he entertained. Saturday night  'was"his night to howl���4whioh  he" did trying to catch up'with  the multiplicity of material he  gets through the mail from  this and : that organization,  some of it to the "benefit of  Peninsula readers of The  Coast News. Sunday with the  editor  is  Sunday.  While the editor and his  staff would like to attend all  the various functions that  take place on the Peninsula, it  is hardly possible. Therefore  we respectfully submit that  wherever possible organizations should offer their invitation for us to attend yet appoint someone to take care  c_ the publicity connected  with the function in case we  cannot   attend. ��  Editor: When our government, at Victoria, for good  and efficent reasons, .purchased the' Lions Gate bridge,. its  action, providing the government intends to be consistent  in. its policies in the future,  had a deep significance for  the residents of this Peninsula,  as our traffic needs, as was  the case with the Lions Gate  bridge company, are dominated by a private concern,  which, through special concessions obtained from a former government, gives them  the power to charge whatever  tolls they may see fit to impose, without any restrictions.  When .pur. Premier said it  was hoped that in a matter of  six years all toll's would' be  taken off: the Lions Gate.  bridge* it became a matter of  urgent necessity1 that we in  this section of the province  use concerted,; action to have  our government purchase the  Black -Ball Ferry Company,  so that we may get some .relief, from the high tolls now  imposed on us.!   . ;.  . We can hardly hope !io. escape some tolls, when W�� use  ferry transportation, but we  have every, reason to think that  once ��� . bur"'', gjtiverr^ment has  taken over that portion of the  Black Ball Company that is  Qperating��7.as. a ;sJ3_or^^<_lyr-.b.ur  tolls could be inuch: reduced;  - Our��� gdverhmeht,; at Victoria; .surely. does -not',r- intend tp  use government funds to relieve the users of the -. Lions  Gate bridge of the.necessity of  paying tolls, while we in this  part of the province, shall  continue to add to the profits  of the Black Ball Ferry Co.,  for. all time to come?.  Our government    has    now  ample,   authority    under    the  Highways and Bridges Act to  purchase and operate this ferry system, and   it    is   to    be  hoped our different    ratepayers' associations will    petition  our government to do so, at the  earliest-possible moment. The  public ' should    be  -reminded :  that: normally  the Black Ball  ���Ferry Cof would-' ccme;under  the jurisdiction of our Public  Utilities    Commission,     which s  ^ould be  able to protect    us  from unduly    high   .tolls,    as  they now exist, but .the Black  Ball Company obtained special  ���provision in its charter wnicft  exempts them from any supervision   by  the  Public  Utilities  Commission.    The Black  Ball  Ferry Company will enjoy this  privilege as  long as its  charter remains in effect. i  The Black    Ball    Company  operated in the State cf Washington for a term    of    years,  but the people  of that    state  found    that     their       interests  would best be served if they  owned, and  operated, the ferries themselves; so they bought  the company oUt, and the writer   is. firmly   convinced    we  should  follow   their   good   example.                  C. V. Cassidyy  Editor: On. behalf of the  Kinsmen Club of Gibsons and  district, I wish to convey our  deep appreciation of your  support of the "Mothers' March  . on Polio" Feb. 19. Also the  publicity on the Ron Brackett  endeavour and other polio information brought before the  public by your paper.  George Ayles.  Chairman, Polio Committee.  Canada's  Canada's population ��� reached  an estimated 15,410,000 at the  start of December last year,  an increase of 405,000 or .2.7  percent since December 1,  1953. In the previous 12  months the gain jamounted to  381,000 or 2.6 percent.  An estimated 2,419,000 fam-.  ilies had children 24 years of  age and under living at home  at the start of June last year,  81,000 more than on the same  date in 1953. Families with ho  children at home numbered  1,176,000, an increase of  37,000.  The wisdom of the powers  that be in allowing- the shooting of the she stock in the  deer family is not the. matter  of this writing. It recalls, however the hunting days of yesteryear when it was legal to  sell venison and shoot does. It  also made a minor winter job  for some of us with what was  known as market hunting.  The bald fact in this picture  is that most of the does shot  now or then would not pass  inspection as edible meat. and  it is not natural 'that they  should, as. most all of , them  have a fawn, or possibly  "twins at foot, to use the dealers' term. Even in market  hunting you could only ship  bucks and as the season wore  on, it lasted, from Sept. 1 to  ���Dec. 15, bucks were travelling and their condition very  soon got down to skin and  . bone.  Occasionally old bucks past  their prime sometimes were  quite fat and lazy jand were  naturally an easyyprey for the  depredators such*, as we, also  the wolves and cougars. It was  game nevertheless ahirt as such  had prestige that the white  emigres from Europe found to  their liking.  The foolishness of hanging  a yearling buck is apparent  When one remembers it was  the weeding out of the private  ��� deer^herda. and, also. lack.,. , of  refrigeration that made it necessary-to    hang   .these   aged  ���i_t'  do this work  : Red Cross workrooms in  B.C. last, year made. 1000 hand  sewn quilts, including one  which had a patch in -it from  each,branch. Some of these  patches were very- original  and topical.  In addition, 34,049 garments  sewn and knitted, 2,128 hos-.  pital supplies and 542,974  blood transfusion service dressings were completed.   v  The B.C. division shipped  overseas 80 casek'consisting of  28,164 articles of children's  clothing and, quilts. The ship-  merits went to India, Pakistan  arid the League of Red Cross  Societies' warehouse in Geneva. These are held  in readi-  **'  ness for emergency relief..  Supplies    have    also     been ���  made on request for outpost  hospitals, Red Cross lodges,  home    nursing    and    disaster  service.   These    included    192  garments  for  disaster  service,  300 pairs of bed socks for the  hospital    visiting     committee,  100 pairs of men's socks and  153 ditty bags for hospitalized  Canadian soldiers in Korea.  All  this  work  is  dQne     by  voluntary effort.   ;  B. W. M.

We used to get 15c a lb.  from Burns & Co. and it did  not seem to matter how poor  or fat or badly shot up, the  price was always the same  15e. What they did with some,,  of the stuff is hard to tell.  About all one can do with  this type of meat is fry or  stew it and once a week is  enough. In those halcyon days  of youth fried venison could  be and often was three times  a day until it was all gone or  ���another fetched in.. Fetching  in was not regarded with awe  or as a fearful adventure  with red hats, cartridge belts,  and fancy hunting knives.  With us; it was generally what  shells we had' in the gun and  a jacknife in the, pocket.' It  was quite general to get a  v. buck up behind Hopkins or  round the big ravine which is  straight back from the double  corners    and    have    daylight  to     get   home orv     We   did  occasionally make forays." as  far afield as Keats, Gambier  and Bowen or back of the  - Roberts Creek country' where  there were: some shake shacks  known as the. dagoes. .

In a. letter, to ..the    Minister,;',  he said:  "My constituents living along the    road    to    Port  Mellpn    are      interested      in  knowing whether blacktopping ^  of that    highway    will   'takeJ  place this year. One of these  communities     is      Granthams'  Landing, which, I am told has  two water mains    that    cross  ��� the highway. They would like  to replace these iwater mains  before    the    blacktopping    is  done.  "The Granttiams Landing  Property Owners association  has complained* about the.-lacktf'  of work done on secondary;  roads in the area. They tell  me that  A^el Reterson y !  Axel Emil Victor Peterson,  81, of Gibsons, pased away  early Monday morning. He  leaves his wife Augusta, and  his son Fred, both of Gibsons.  Born in Sweden, Mr. Peterson moved to Canada, and to  Gibsons, over 20 years ago.  He has lived on a small farm,  with a small garden, ever  since.  Since he did not believe in  doctors, no doctor .attended at  the^time of 4iis death. A coroner's inquest has been called,  i. to establish the eahse of death.

She came to this  area from. San Fr ansisco with  her husband and a son of 11  j��_..yej$r��.>-..-i. ~ -'^.v-xas*'*^  As she recalls it, the place'  looked lovely, with the trees  in leaf, and flowers everywhere. ~y!"r*~y'',~'C'~T''"r~?..?. . ���     .  That year,    Mrs.    Wilander "  remembers    planting     lettuce  and radishes  in April,   to eat  ih the first week of Mayy.  Mrs. Wilander is a native of  Fhiland,  who came here    via  .Russia, thence to    New   York  . to meet her huspand, and then  to the West Coast.  ���She was one of the settlers  bf the self-contained Finnish  settlement oh Malcolm Island,  now Sointula Island; She recalls that eventually the colony broke up, because there *  simply was not enough, demand-for the work the settlers could do. Her husband  was a carpenter, but as she  said, soon there would be no  more houses to build The settlers; had come , in on the  scheme at $200 per share.  After this venture, the Wil-  anders went to San Franciscd,  to work as a carpenter. Three  years there was enough for  Andrew Wilander. He wanted  to farm, so to Gibsons they  came, in 1905.  The family settled on.; the  North Road, where Mr. and  Mrs. Hewkins live new. They  farmed there 38 years. They  bought the first buggy in Gibsons, and used it to deliver  milk in those early days, driving back and forth over the  Rocky R.oad. The hcrse eventually came to hate the road,  and would stop, or turn in any  direction, rather than start the  long rough climb back up?  Young Willie, their son,  drove the milk delivery for  some years, and went to school  after, finishing the route. Will  is now a teacher in Vancouver in the Sexsmith ' School.  He paid his mother a visit last,  week,.  ' One daughter, Gertrude,  was born on the farm. She is  now Mrs. Jack Gamble, living  in  Vancouver.  Mrs.    Wilander    remembers  -Gibsons school in  those  early  days, with one teacher and 22  pupils.

The post office was simply a box in the  freight shed on the wharf, and  everyone helped himself to  -his own. It was several years  before a more formal post office was set iip in the old  Fletcher house, with Mrs.  Fletcher the post mistress.  The Gibson Meftiorial  Church; then much smaller,  was on the present site, and  the Gibson house was where'  the present Holly Lodge* C. P.  Smith's house, now stands.  The glue factory. which produced glue, from dog-fish ...prbi  ducts, was in. existence but  had gone out of operation. A  saw mill was operating, the  legs being delivered down . a  flume along the creek not far  from the glue factory., where  the mill stood. .

For years on their farm the  Wilanders had no neighbors,  until Carl Wilander came. He  and Andrew built the house,  now McLean's, up the, hill.  Wyngaerts also had a home  up there,, which, after, nine  years they sold tp Mr. Downs,  now of Roberts Creek. Mr.  Wyngaert was ,a chicken farmer, and his vson Frank took  over from him.  Mrs. Wilander was net idle  all these years. In addition to  her home, the. farm and garden, she was the community's  midwife and practical nurse.  Before Dr. Fred Iglis, Hugh's  father, came, Dr. Shaw practiced. He lived near McQueen's, and people called on  him there. Mrs. Shoebottom,  Dr; Fred Inglis' daughter Helen, Mr. Wilander recalls, was  eight months old when she  .first saw her.  '.' The last. confinement case  Mrs. Wilander attended was  the birth of Mary Wyngaert,  now Mrs. Mary Fletcher. Clare  Chamberlm's daughter Pearl  was one of 'her babies.' "$>o  many there are, who come to  see me, or write to me, it is  quite nice," says Mrs. Wilander. -  Andrew built many places  still very much a part of today's community, such as the  Bank of Montreal, Jchn Wood  Hardware, the Hopkins home,  Tompkins (Spencer's) in Hopkins, r.ow the store, as well as  various flumes, in. connection  wii'h -���"���gging-.

Wilander is still brisk and hale,  'keeping - house for herself,  making her daily pilgrimage,  t) the post effice and stores,  alsd spending the occasional  .holiday in Vancouver. .

The third and last reason is  that the little donation' I shall  receive from fellow writer  Barrie (Along Shore) Zwicker:  will prbve-to"���*hinv -that he  should read more sports news  and.'less Jack Scott. *.-.;:-.*���'���..,. ������    L  Last..week I stuck my..neck  EVERYONE'S INVITED- BUT EVERYONE!  ���'���:��� Recreation   Commission  Meeting  GIBSONS SCHOOL HAI_L  THUR-; IWAft. 10, 8 p.m. -���"  SOLNIK SERVICE STAT.ON :,  MARINE ENGINES, Inboard or Outboard  Overhauled and "Repaired  GOODYEAR AND FIRESTONE TIRES  WELDING    r  GENERAL AUTOMOTIVE REPAIRS  Phone 48C--:J$i:  Sechelt  Jt farmers sav&   money J  buy  a>   USED :  ;  ^:Tp/4^;|^r;:  These tractors are all excellent values and come equipped with either front end loaders, bulldozer blades or  winches and are available in both gasoline and diesel  models ranging from 25 to 35 h��pj      Vy.'^/'''���:''"yy^  Don't miss out dnrthese specials���^Get further details--*-  Phone, Wire, or Write today !

The boys' were at a disadvantage as the gym they played in was quite a bit smaller  than the one here and the  lighting was also very .poor-?���,  but not as poor as 59-37.  The softball season is slated  to open about the first of May  so it does not give the players too long to get into shape,  a good idea is to get the use  of a hall and let the boys  loosen up their arms playing  catcH.
