Gibsons last week, everybody  is talking roads in the    HarV  bour. With the delegation    of  three from Egmont,    Clarence  Cook, secretary of   the  Community Club   and   merchants,  John , Dunlop and Cy'   Healy,  and  a  good showing;of stalwarts from the Harbour pres-^  ent, there was no danger that  the top end of the Peninsula  would be overlooked.: Not forgetting    Halfmoon   Bay    and  Redrooffs, of epurse, so    ably  represented by Messrs.

Mr. Bris'tow commented on  the improved appearance of  the school grounds at Madeira  Park school;        ".'/��� "y:"  ions. He explained he was asked to be chairman^ because the  association wanted someone  not connected with it to take  charge of  the meeting.  (Questions asked at the  meeting will be found on Page  6).  At the close of the question and answer period Mr.  Funnell, chairman of School  Board 46, thanked all who  had taken part in the meeting  and urged that the good work  started by this meeting should  not be allowed to drop. Efforts should continue "until  we get black-top," he said.   '  Mr. Gargrave pleaded for  more federal aid for roads in-  British Columbia. He thought  the Ottawa government should  offer more than a 50 percent  deal on main, highways in order to allow the provincial  government to pay more - attention to-side roads.  Mr. Jones said he had had  a "pretty tough time    but    I  ,doa't t>lame. \you;" ���* He appreciated the "'frank ^points    of  view expressed by various in  the audience. . He noted there  was a general trend    in    the  opinions of the audience    anil  that was to "spend more money." He pointed out that British Columbia    was   spending  $18 per capita On   its    roads,  while Ontario was only spending $8. He explained, why B.C.  roads cost more by    showing  ihe differences   in   road  costs  between B.C. and other parts  of Canada. Thousands of other  regions ih the province were  making similar    demands    as  were made  by;    the    meeting  and it was    not    possible    to  please them all. There  would  be $43,OOp?Q0O spent  bn  B.C.  roads this year," he said. ' .   ;  ���Dr. Hugh Inglis who arrived  in the truck and in use.

Before concluding  his brief remarks he pointed  out that there would be 30  miles of blacktop for this riding this summer of which lO  miles would be from Gibsons  to .

He quotes not  directly from the Bible, but he reveals  an intimate    knowledge  of it, and in scores of striking  pasages, one    recognized    this  fact. He holds, as it were,    a  " rhirror    up    to    nature      and  shows how inevitably  sin    is  punished;  teaches   in . all    his  works that there are moral re:  gards and penalties. Over and  over he demonstrates that: the  ���gods are just and of our plea-  sant.vices make instruments to  plague us.  Outward success and failure  (in Shakespeare) are not the  measure of the regard of heaven. The reward's and penal-  ties of heaven are inward, and  move "within the region of the  soul. ��� . .  If Macbeth, winning his  heart's desire, were left with  a tranquil * and expanded  heart; if in the outward triumph of his hopes he had the  inward triumph of his spirit;  ���then it would be reasonable to  hold that heaven was indifferent and regardless.  But the horror of the tragedy is this, that in accomplishing the evil he was set oi_,  all that makes life beautiful  departs from him, and he  moves down into the darkness  of the night'.  ��� �����      *    - *     - .

And the awfullest  horror  in Macbeth is not the  murder of the helpless    Duncan; it is the   way.  in    which  Macbeth's sin found him out.  His   soul ..shrank  and  shrivelled; all that was sensitive in  him turned to stone;    he.   became the prey    of    agonizing  fears;    he could not    sleep ���  Macbeth hath murdered sleep.  Suspicion haunted him; terror  was round    about    him;    life  was living death.    He lost all  kinship with what    was    fair  and lovely; he made his bed in  hell.  The  tragedy , Macbeth    presents, perhaps  more    forcibly  than any other drama in    all  literature, the utter misery of  a    troubled'  conscience.      To  Shakespeare evil    was . something    which    wrecked      and  ruined and destroyed.    There  was no  escaping its dire  consequences, and heaven, was always on the side of the good.  He  taught that    for    a    time  goodness might seem    t0    be  vanquished    and    evil    triumphant, but the terrible punishment following wrong    doing  was inevitable, because it was  in the very nature of the universe  that  wrong   could     not  reinain victorious.  There is evidence everywhere in his works ��������� that  Shakespeare thought much on  the deep problems of life, and  his thinking' led him to have  faith in the wisdom and goodness of God even when his  -a ays* are mysterious. In Anthony and Cleopatra he makes  one of his characters speak  thus of unanswered prayer:  We,- ignorant of ourselves  Beg often our qwn harm,  which the wise powers  Deny us for our    good;    so  find we profit y       -; ���������-���..: -.... ..

A. A. FRENCH  Mrs. Maisie Hurley of Vancouver,  the editor of the Native-Voice,    a    paper    which  brings to the public the activities of the Native Indians and  their    problems,    was    guest  speaker in the Indian Council  Hall.  With  Mrs. Hurley    was  Mrs. Ellen Neel,    the    Indian  carver and wood worker, and  Miss M.  Wade,  a daughter  of  the late F. C. Wade, one-time  B.C.   high  commissioner.  Clarence Joe introduced the  speakers and brought greetings frcm the' Native Brotherhood of which Mrs. Hurley, is  the only woman in Canada  honored by membership. Rev.  Father Sutherland of the Indian Residential School also  welcomed the visitors.  Mrs. Hurley stressed the  point of organization for our  native brethren and deplored  the idea of taking the Indian  in the early days and gave  credit to various church missions, which in the earliest  times had looked after the  welfare of Indians and also  touched briefly on the recent  attack on the Indian by F.  Corbett,  member   for Yale.  Mrs. Hurley  said that    the  Indian    was    not    demanding  more liquor, only his right, to  please himself    whether      he  drank; or not. She asked    the  mothers at    the    meeting    to  send their children to Sunday  School, so as to give them a  good foundation in  after life,  and to  work    together    with  faith in better times to come.  The Sisterhood  of the village  was the most important factor  and had done very good work  both spiritually and financially.  She spoke of the better educational advantages now available where  the young Indian  and girls. She urged the meeting to get out and advertise  the wonderful work they do.  She saw a wonderful future  in Indian, lore. With regard to  the tourist trade she said the  village* is in a wonderful location and should be exploited as such.  Mrs- Hurley was presented  with an. Indian tray from the  sisterhood, by the president]  Mrs. A. Johnson. Father Suthi;  erlanrf and Clarence Joe-  thanked the visitors for . the.  wonderful trip to Sechelt In-  *aian "Village.  off the reservation. She said P^ "V. ����"* h*&  they were not yet ready for school. -She deplored the fact  this drastic move. She spoke that some of the tabes are dy-  briefly  of   the    encroachment    mS ��uut> especially Bear Lake  which has dwindled to a population of 38. She noted that  wonderful co-operation came  from Indian Commissioner  Mr. Arnell and the Indian  agent, Mr. F. Enfield and asked that the press give more  publicity to  Indian Affairs.  Mrs. Ellen Neel spoke . of  the great difficulties of her  work and felt the same discrimination  as the local boys  an the Indians' means of living, especially fishing and  logging and it would seem  that many DP's are being' taken into these industries and  said Canada needed new citizens but it must, not be at the  expense of the Native Indian.

PHONE 5S  THE NAME THAT MEANS A GOOD DEAL  WILSON CREEK Closing  of  the post    office  Saturday afternoon, instead of  Wednesday afternoon  was advocated    by    the    Board    of  Trade   at its dinner    meeting  Monday night in Danny's dining room.      The matter    was  brought to the    attention    of  the board by a letter from the  postmaster,    James    Marshall,"  Jr.  The letter was sent to    the  Board of    Trade    because    it-  was necessary for ' some    indication from the businessmen  of the community as to whether they were in favor    of    a  change. It was pointed out it  would not affect the week-end  dispatch of outgoing mail and  that the   Saturday    afternoon  off would be of more advantage to the post   office    staff  than having the   half-day    on  "Wednesday.  The board supported Mrs. K.  Jermain's resolution from the  Bainbridge off  for overhaul  The deeper throated whistle  of the M.V. Quillayute announced the arrival of that  vessel on the ferry run- on  Wednesday this week between  ���Gibsons and Horseshoe Bay.  She has just come in from her  turn in dry dock.  M.V. Bainbridge will be in  for an overhaul for two or  three days, in preparation for  the busy season.  While the Quillayute is relieving at Gibsons, the Pearson is on the Saltery Bay- run  connecting with Powell River.  The Pearson, of approximately 20 car capacity, has  been chartered from Gavin  Mowatt; at Saltsprings Island  to fill in. y  Pender Harbour Board of  Trade asking that the government see that private owners  did not encroach too heavily  on the shore lands on Sakinaw and nearby lakes.  William Sutherland, the  president, was a.sked to tackle  the job of completing a diary  s of the Gibsons* and District  Board of Trade since'it started.  A letter was read from Mr.  Thorvaldson, who addressed  the Board of Trade Feb. 16,  thanking them for the excellent salmon that was sent him  following the presentation to  him at the meeting.  L. S. Jackson brought up  the matter of the possibility  of obtaining a provincial government building for Gibsons  which would house the various governmental departments now scattered around  as he said "in shacks."  The Beach fund, organized  some years ago, for the construction of a safe swimming  pool,, which eventually fell  through, then credited to the  Board of Trade as' ear marked  for community use was turned over to Dr. Hugh Inglis to  be used for improvement of  the tennis court. The fund  amounted to $181.84. Dr. Inglis thanked the board for the  donation and said it would be  put to good use because it  comes at a time when the Gibsons Tennis Club was embarrassed financially. Children of  high school age? he said,  could play on the courts free  of charge. "It is our, objective  to teach them to, be able to  play tennis," Dr. Inglis said.  The provincial highways de-,  partment will be  commended  by letter for its effort to get  the paving.done on. the  road  from Gibsons to Port Mellon.

Jules Mainil, president, of  the Kiwanis Club, appeared  before the Village Commission  Tuesday night and laid before  it a plan to build a 14x20  frame construction, duroid  roof building somewhere near  the firehall.  Members of the commission  were of the opinion placing  such a building in close vicinity to the firehall would not  be wise because of the no-  parking restriction along that  side of  Marine Drive.  After some discussion the  Winn road" frontage around  the corner from the firehall,  was suggested as being more  suitable and would allow  parking space on a less busy  thoroughfare.  Mr. Mainil and others concerned in the location of the  library will check over the  Winn road s,ite and have Kiwanis Club decide on what it  will do and then report back  to^the village commission next  week. Mr. Mainil was supported in his argument in favor of the new library building by N. R. McKibbin, chairman of the Library board.

Mr. Jones replied the  contract would be called shortly after April 1 and no paving  would be done until the road  was ready. There were bound  . to be weak spots to be remedied before any blacktopping  was done. The road must be  * kept up before any start was  made on blacktopping.  Grari_hams:   A  speaker  was  worried about  the    secondary  roads .which were OK for oxcarts.      There was no-   policy  about drainage of roads causing a lot of worry.      Is there  anyone that could be contacted to come and see them.    If  there was a section not paved  how about    dust-proofing    it?  Mr.  Jones  advised  getting   in  touch with a  Mr. R. B.    Gil-  mour of the provincial    roads  department in  Vancouver.  He  would instruct him to definitely come over to see the roads.  Mr. Jones was  confident that  Gilmour would be a good man  because he had been with the  roads department for 20 years.  Continuing with  Granthams  was    anything    planned    con-  Mr. Jones was asked if there  cerning  the widening  of    the  highway    at    narrow  . places  and would ��� there be a cut-off  or a new bridge built 'at ��� the  bad turn where two cars could  hardly  pass each    other..     It  would be a mistake to blacktop the road as    it   is.      Mr.  Jones replied there would not  be  any' blacktopping   on   any  section  of    the    road'   Which  would have  to    be     changed  within   two."year's:';:  Another questioner'' wanted  to know-.'i'f ��� :'the 'department  oo-uld not ptit'Tjip -'no-parking  signs on the bad bit of road  because when cars wetfe ���p'ark-  edothereoit'-became :a:' one-way  n��ard.

A question about Pratt Road followed.  It  appeared  it had    been  surveyed again    and    was   it  surveyed   for. grading   or  just  improving? Mr. Jones said he  could not answer questions on  every  road in the district because he did not know    them  all but he    would    drop    the  questioner a    line ��� about    it.  Another  questioner was    concerned about the use of Pratt  Road as a road to    the    ferry  slip to    avoid    schools.      Mr.  Jones    then    recalled    where  Pratt Road was. arid    said    it  was questionable whether anything would be    done    on    it  this year.      Another    speaker  suggested  the North road    be  used as a  route to  Port Mellon so as to leave    the   beach  road to those living along it.  Roads     maintenance      was  mentioned by  the next    man  who said roads were put in in  good faith    but    maintenance  was the big thing. There were  varied    suggestions    that    the  road maintenance    gang    was  not doing the job it should be  doing. Equipment was said to  be lying unused for long periods.      Mr. Jones was    asked  who was responsible for using  the grader on roads, the foreman or someone above    him,  because there were  times the  foreman was reported t0 have  said he had  no   authority    to  put the grader out.

The time  has come to take off the gloves and get this matter fixed'  up. Blacktop is ail right but  we use the lower road,".  Mr. Jones replied that.. any.  time "you want". action let us  know and we will get some  action for  you,"  At this point -Mrs. Monrufet  brought up the matter of four  letters she had sent Mr.  Gargrave to which she    had    received no reply.  She did not  think  the  treatment the Roberts  Creek Improvement    As- .  sociation received    was ' what  it should have had under the  circumstances.    Mr.   Gargrave  '"said he did. riot    answer .  the  first letter   because    he    was  sick.  He  placed     the   (second  letter before the    engineering  branch  of the.  roads    department. He said he also made a  special appeal during the budget  debate  for Roberts Creel-  roads.  While he did not   answer  the   letters,   "it did    not-  mean I was not working   for  you." In opening his remarks  in  reply to Mrs. Monrufet he  pointed out he was " working  on numerous things  -for    the  benefit of the whole constituency. Mr.--Gargrave. offered to  turn over his files on any correspondence ... concerning  . the  Roberts Creek road. The    engineering department had told  him that money -set aside    to  improve a    bad    .corner    was  spent on the wrong spot.  An attempt to  have a telegram read; sent by MryyGar-^.:  grave to Mrs.  Monrufet.   was.  turned aside by the -chairman  who was of ��� the opinion it  would not serve any ���- good  purpose at the time. Both Mrs.  Monrufet-and Mr. Gargrave  -were willhig to have the telegram read.  One logger maintained .the  roads were not.as good as cat-,  tie trails. They were horrible:  roads. It should be a must to,  pave Roberts Creek road this  summer.. Mr. ,Jones replied  that if the roads were in the <  state the logger said they were  in "we caririot blacktop it this;  year:''. ;.��� '.������.-.: ^.yy.'-.;  A  taxi   driver    said    there;;  were'loW    of    roads y outside :;  Roberts Creek and. sometimes  he wished he was nbtr a. taxi  driver.

Some $475,000 had been  spent on roads but there hadt  been no difference to them in  the last seven years. The  speaker suggested a shake-up  so as to get a live-wire on the  job who could spend the mon-   ���  ey wisely.-.....  ;-.,. . y-:y_..:.V;  ; ��� -  '������';'Next speaker^ said? when the'  water got to his "house- it was  was at its. peak arid was. he  supposed to put in a culvert or  was it up to the governrnent.  Mr. Jones said it was up to  the government, if it was necessary. Comment -was made,  about a ditch across;;the road  ; at the Community hall which  had been'there for    the    last  ... three  weeks.      . y:;     y',  y The roads gang was subject  to more comment about 'this  time arid one speaker suggested "we will never;' have good  roads ..until' we have a, shake-  up.''

Were .  ;there any commitments for  next year on this section of  the highway. "We have a good  roads foreman, but we request  the matter of his lack of  equipment be looked into."  Next man turned to Welcome  Beach cutoff and -said taxes  were up but the road has got  worse since 1945. He did not  complain  about the taxes but  B. W. M-.

The road  was not wide enough for  two cars and a safe road was  wanted. The -matter of culverts or the insufficiency of'  them was discussed and it  was suggested unless the proper culvert allowance was provided it is money wasted. If  it was not wasted "we would  get more for our money."  It was pointed out by one  speaker that the road was a  danger in the transportation,  of patients to St. Mary's hospital. Mr. Jones replied that  section was going to be torn  up this year to prepare it for  paving later on.  Pender Harbour: Thanks  were offered for, assistance, in  putting a road through but  there but there was disappointment in the fact none of the  road from Sechelt would be  black-topped this year., Preparations for black-top would be  a step in the right direction. A  ing of more money on ythe>  plea was made for the spend-  road to the hospital at Pender  arbour.

Mr. Desbiens went- back to  the cottage several times, to  retrieve household articles,  until prevented by. the others.  The cottage1, owned by> Gordon Lyons, was a complete  loss.   .  Mr. and Mrs. Desbiens are  temporarily sheltered in one  of ��� the Columbia Coast - Missions cottages, until they can  find a home  for themselves.  Two fires at Gibsons over  the week-end were promptly  extinguished by. the Volunteer  Fire Department. On Saturday  they were called to a brush  fire along the edge of the  Drew property, when brush  being burned consumed part  of a fence. On Sunday they  were called to a chimney' fire  at the Perry home. No damage  was caused.  !���-  BY  CHUCK  TOMPKINS  The  loss of "Bldeket" Richard to the Montreal Canadiens  - will probably be more    of    a  ��� mental handicap to the'   team  than it will be to their actual  play.  It is like playing a ball game  without your star pitcher, although you have, lots of  strength on the bench a certain amount of mental  strength comes with the knowledge that your best man is  with you.  Truly* Richard deserved  punishment but he is one of.  the most abused players-in the  NHL. Every time he steps on  the ice he is slashed, tripped,  gang-checked and generally  roughed up by the opposing  players to keep him, the  greatest scorer of all time,  away from the goal. All this  time Richard is merely playing his best hockey, as his  coaches expect him to do,.  Great players have to play,  hard to remain on top.  By handing out a stiff fine  and the usual three game suspension, Clarence Campbell  would not only hay.e., proved  that. hockey is bigger than  any one,;player but still would  have held the respect of-thousands, of hockey fans across  Canada.  This is not an ode to Richard  but to the many Richards of  the future who will face the  same thing. I wonder if the  "Rocket" had been a Maple  Leaf under the protective  wing of i ri f 1 u e n t i a 1 Con  Smythe if all this would have  beer- the same.  Editor's Note: Chuck must  agree that a great player  must be great in more ways  than one on -and off the ice. If  cne's greatness lies only in the  direction of scoring goals it  is not enough; Other great  stars have had to take as  much or even more than Richard. Either Richard runs hockey or hockey runs Richard.

For some time past, at intervals there has been disturbance between 10 and 11 at  nigjht and how much longer, I  do not know. Now the disturbance starts much earlier  spoiling all programs during  most of the evenings. On  March 16, 17 and 18 it started  soon after 7 p.m.  I believe that it is illegal to  use such equipment and certainly it is hot fair to,spoil so  many people's enjoyment on  their radio. There are a number of shut-ins who depend on  radio for their entertainment.  Would you ask yjour readers  to test any equipment they may  be using. If it disturbs others  it would sutfely make >a-' dis  turbance on their own radio,  or could it be any of the television sets being set- ups in the  neighborhood? However there,  was some of this disturbance  before there were ma.ny TV  sets in this vicinity.  M. E. Telford.
