C*  Serving the Growing  From SquBOjish  to PeswJesr Harbour  SECHELT: ELEMENTARY  ���'"'���The'"''school at Seehelt is- an  eleniehtary school providing  tot tuition for grades 1 to 6  arid! comprises four classrooms*  in4 .the main building and one  classroom iii the annex. ' The  buildings are on an excellent  site which is held-on a 50-year  lease from the Union Estates  at a v,ery treasonable rental  trith approximately 30 years  still to run. .'.'.'.':  At the present time all high  school pupils residing in. the -  Stechelt area attend the Elphinstone Junior Senior High  School at Gibsons, transportation^bemg provided by bus,  and it is not the intention of  the board to change this arrangement in the near future.  * In formulating plans for  school extensions-;^ therefore,  only the "requirements for elementary pupils at Seehelt  have to be considered. However, as all available classrooms are in use for teaching,  an urgent requirement for the  Seehelt School .is an activities  room and provision has been  made in the proposed, by-law  for this, addition.  Iti issues- of The Coast News  Ttfje have now described the  conditions 'existing in [pue ,five  schools ih'our district where  additions and" new construc-  ilon are necessary1. Summarized, these are as follows:  Gambier Island Elementary:  1-room school .and teacherage.  Gibsons Elementary: 3-room  annex.  Elphinstone Junior Senior  High School: 3 classrooms,  science vrapm, office, industrial  arts room, home economics  room,- 'lunch room and study  hall.  Pender Harbour Senior  High Elementary School: two  classrooms.  Seehelt ^Elementary School:  one activities room.  The proposed .construction.  has been approved^ljy* the De-"  partment of Education for the  50 .percent government grant  and in a future issue of The  Coast News the estimated costs  and. the effect on the mill rate  will be given.  In addition to the five  schools needing additional facilities the board Jhas made a  survey, of the requirements of  the remaining nine schools in  District 46 with the result that  it feels that the facilities of  these schools are adequate for  present requirements. These  schools are located at Bowen  Island, Port Mellon, Roberts  Creek, Half Moon Bay, Egmont, Irvmgs Landing, Nelson  Island, Vancouver Bay and  Brittain River.  The bylaw is being completed with all possible speed and  it is hoped that it will .be  ready for presentation to the  taxpayers before the end of  June and that it will be possible to call for tenders and  commence construction ' this  summer though it ysill hardly  be possible to have the pro  gram completed for school  opening in September.  CEIO��  / The Graduation ceremony  evolved out of the annual  meeting of the -student body  in the old Howe Sound United  High School.^ Originally (1940)  the...'students held an afternoon  meeting, heard .the minutes,  and reports', made motions,  and1 had the presentations of  awards and trophies. The vice-  president was in the ch air and  still presides at the ceremony.  Gradually it grew to include  a banquet, evening ceremony,  and an invitation dance following.

MBS. ANNA GAARE  Mrs. Anna Gaare, aged 82,  passed away suddenly at her  home in Seehelt on June 4.  She had been in apparently  good health, but suffered a  stroke that day. Dr. D. McColl  was in attendance..  Mrs. Gaare was born in  Norway, at Trendjheim. All  of her latter years she had lived with her son Alf Garry, until tw0 years ago. ;;;  The funeral service was'  held on Wednesday, June 8,  from the Pentecostal Church  in Gibsons. W. Graham's funeral home had charge of all arrangements for the burial at  Seaview Cemetery.  Mrs. Gaare. leaves her. son  Alfred of Seehelt, and a  daughter, Mrs, Kerr of Edmonton, Alta.  Chinook at dock  Black Ball's ferry Chinook  was moored at the Gibsons  wharf Monday, while repairs  to the main generator were  being effected. The Chinook  had made a few runs from  Nanaimo to Horseshoe Bay,  but the faulty, generator was  proving s0 unsatisfactory it  was decided to lay the Chinook up for the day and make  complete repairs. "  Capt. Owen, Jones was  aboard. Engineer B. Tollefson,  who formerly lived in Gibsons  when the Qmllayute was in  service on the Gibsons-Horseshoe Bay run, described the  ferry briefly.  Dwarfing the dock at Gibsons, 'the Chinook is 324 feet  long, 10 feet longer than the  Kahloke, and more than twice  the length of the Bainbridge.  She has been remodelled to  take traffic at each end, and  loads two lanes at once.  This sum represents the pro*  fits on the sale of 74 cases, or*;-  1164 cans of Planters Peanuts;  with    a    special      purchasing^  price given 'to    the    Kiwanisi"  and a generous price paid1 by  the public as   its donation  to  the fund.  It also represents a lot of  work organizing, arranging  territories,' sales canvasses by  Kiwanis members, and finally  compiling results.  The fund thus raised will  make an excellent - beginning  for the Library.

We  have already filled1 the first  requirement, which is to acquaint the public with the proposal, by the publishing of  these three articles in The  Coast News. The second step  is to hold a public meeting for.,  the purpose of having open  discussion of the question so ;  that all interested persons may  es that a majority of the; adult  residents are in favor then the  Lieutenant - Governor - in -  Council will issue ��� letters patent empowering the formation of a Village. If the results  of the petition are not conclusive then a poll may be ordered to be taken on the question.  The public meeting will be  held in the Legion Hall, at Seehelt on Thursday, June 16, at  8 p.m. As the committee feels  that this is'a matter of prime  cipal clerk at GibsOns, who  who wiil be able to -answer  questions on municipal administration.

Programs, pennants, and  posters were prepared at this  meeting and the report from  Mrs. Muriel Hodson on her  trip to Vancouver indicated  good support both for trophy  donations and advertising ia  the progsam.  It was emphasized at the  meeting that the Aquatic Club  was a non-profit organization "devoted to one basic objective: to teach the children  ��f the%rea~ to swim. Since the  inception of  this    programme  incorporation committee, J. E.  Parker, S. B. Howlett, Magistrate Andrew Johnston, E. F.  Cooke and Frank Parker, will  also be on the platform and  available for questioning by  the audience.  There are now a great many  incorporated areas in the province and more are continually  being formed.      It is notable  have become instructed* swimmers, and the popularity of  the swimming classes is grow*  ing steadily each year.  It was announced at the  meeting that Mr. Harvey Leith  who had been elected chah>  man of the Regatta Cornmit-  tee had left the Harbour , to  take a position in the Cariboo.1  The members    present    voted  people would  enjoy.

With these articles we will  have acquainted the public  with the facts and, figures  which.we honestly believe to  be true and which are the  results of the best efforts' of  the committee to find out all  formation on points not covered, or not completely covered by the published1 articles.  The opinion of the meeting on  the question will be obtained  by ballot at the close of .the  meeting.  The third step is t0 circulate  a petition for the signature of  all adult residents both property owners and non-property  the area we earnestly ask all  who will be able, to make a  point of attending' Anyone requiring transportation is in:  vited to phone Seehelt 51.  We will have in attendance  at the meeting Mr. H. Burdon,  provincial , assessor at New  Westminster, who will be able  to answer all questions on taxation, and Mr. R. Burns, muni-  has ever willingly reverted  back to unorganied territory.  The committee fervently believes that incorporation is in  the best interests of the people and would be a forward  step. It is our hope that all  residents of the area will  agree and show their interest  by attending the meeting next  Thursday, June 16.  man, and Mrs. Jean Whittaker  as vice-chairman.  There was a good turnout  of members and plans are go*  ing ahead rapidly for the biggest and best Regatta in the  Harbour's history.  Some special features were  hinted at during the meeting  but full details are to be announced later. 2 Coast News June 9, 1955.  ���  Wfcz MomiMtMsf:x  T~'~\.   .

There  SisJiot a word in the discussions, if radio and press effusions  eau he called discussions, about murder being barbaric.  Murders have, been perpetrated as far back as the  fracas between Cain and Abel and have continued since  Wifcb some abatement every so often. As long as human  jKEssions are what they are we will have murders no mat-  tea- what summit our education might reach. Temper does  Bot always recognize the finer points of culture.  The commentators who rush in to decry hanging ap-  ipsTently are quite ready to recognize murder, is here to  stay because they offer no cure. They claim \ hanging is  based on laws hundreds of years old. This does not have  Bniwrik bearing on the matter because in spite of educational  isSvances during the last few hundred years we. are still  *s.^m^- sunder laws that were promulgated then and we have  Be? desire to change them. Some have been refined. So has  ikd Jaw covering hanging. Such events are no longer public  spectacles and the actual-hanging is less crude than it was.  However, the art ^of murder, barbaric as it was, is  feTiOSi/more barbaric today. The victim has much less chance.  _���&3jr commentators brush this aside and pour their lush  f&sars��on the poor chap that is to be hanged. Their educa-  tmn. on the subject has been apparently limited to one  Sssfe of the argument. True one of the Ten Commandments  jseads: Thou shalt not kill. But must that apply to one  sassfe CTily? Must it apply to the forces of law- and order  8��k oabt to the murderer?  No individual has to be hanged. Laws are made for  |K2c>ple who break them and not for law-abiding citizens.  *Eh& term "legalized murder" Has been used to describe  &SQging..This means the commentator is. asking the law to.  tasiiLits other cheek so the murderer, can slap it to the tune  ���� S&e cost of keeping the criminal alive at state expense.  If we must go "soft" about something:���a movement  fer &his or that to make a better world in-which to live���  "vs&ar not organize criminals under some insurance scheme.  Eet them pay premiums into an insurance fiind for the  feea^fit of the families of those murdered. Far-fetched?  T&ss,- ^>ut it is a great deal more practical and could do more  good than stumping for the; abolishmentof hanging. Prob-  aSrfar it would not allow commentators to rhapsodize,  tSto^er or get lost in the realm of the problematical.  BYL5J.;  Nature sees man control the  wind, the wind sweeps man  away. ��� Mathew Arnold.  The Greeks had nice names  for the winds; Boreas, north;  Euros, east; Notos, south; and  Zephros, west. Wind also concerns us here and I explain  why to my visitors from the  high grass lands who regard  wind only when conspicuous  by its absence.  He tells me there are very  few days in his part of the  country, whioh is Saskatchewan, that they don't have  wind and he also remarked  that it was only ,last  year that he discarded his 32-  volt wind charged generator.  The logging business contends with wind constantly.  The first thing one listens for  in the early waking is the  wind, how much and' from  what quarter. Will it be blowing too hard up in the hi��h  level woods for the f allers;  will it interfere with the booming <or towing. These are things  for the staff to cope with.  Here in our bailliwick if it's  sou' east it will most surely  rain before long; if it's westerly we may have several days  of fine  weather.     .  There are two basic industries that are ruled by the  wind to a more or less degree,  fishing and logging and the  interior logging not so much  as the wind in that area is  something that stirs the tree  tops a bit.  I well remember the north  wind in the mountains. When  we came off slriffe at a tunnel  job fairly) high.u$r)t was quite  a matter for "(d^bS't^jespecially  if it was beiow^zerV weather  and then the wmaVwas a fiendish arrangement that found  every weak spot in the clothes  that one had on. With half a  mile to go to camp there was  sublime relief in closing the  door on the relentless wind.

Wandering small -children  going along the roads would  be less likely to attack cranky  cattle, if the latter were protected by the presence cf a  herder.  The only other solution to  the problem we can see is the  provision of a. journeyman  butcher, who might be employed to put wandering, unattended livestock cut of their  misery by butchering them  whenever they are found suffering from over-indulgence in  lawn grass, garden truck, fruit  or flowers, or whenever found  in danger of suicide, on the  highways.  A small fee, payable by the  owner of the cattle, might be  assessed to cover such a butcher's salary. The resultant meat  might well be stored in lockers to provide annual dinners  for the owners of garden, orchard or field crops normally  devoured by these unhappy  wandering animajls.  Perhaps the Society for the.  Prevention of Cruelty to Animals might* be enlisted to lobby for this legislative change.  New B.C. atlas  Premier W. A, C.

I.O.O.Fi Sunshine Coast  Lodge No. 76 meets Gibsons Legion Hall, 2nd and  4th Fri:  RESPONSIBILITY  When the class of '55 applies  for jobs the personnel people  will pay special attention to  th'e youth who showed evidence  in his school and university  years of having ability and  willingness to accept responsibility. He may have held a  post on the student council, or  on the school paper, in direction of sports or in the organizing of class or school activities of one sort or another.  In some way, not necessarily  a big way, the most desired  young man or-young woman  applying for a position in business will have shown capacity  to shoulder responsibilty.  '    *   "       '*:      ���     *    ������������'.-���-'  -It takes all sorts of people  to keep the husmess of the  world moving. One' man can  look after himself who cannot  guide others, and his is an important place in life. It so happens that young people���-and  men and women of the class of.  '45 or '35, too���who can be  trusted with responsibility for  managing and organizing and  despatching business are less  numerous and therefore eagerly sought.  . . .   *      *      * ���  .No department in    industry  or"husiness will run itself efficiently. It needs    a    leader.  ��� Even the    lorchestra    with    a  skilled  performer     in     every  % seat must have a man on   the  ' podium to lead.    The  greater  the virtuosity of the musicians,  the greater the need    for    a  man who will be    responsible  for keeping them in harmony.  What fits a man to    accept  responsibility? He has to have   .  intellectual ability, knowledge '  of. men,  imagination,., energy,  enthusiasm,    the : quality      of  prompt decision, and- a personality  that  wins  people  to  do  his will. There is a proverb to  the effect that   an   army   of  sheep led by a lion would defeat an.army of lions led by a  sheep.  * ��� *      *  There are two sorts of responsibility in ��� business: the  sense of responsibility of the  man who is on his way. up,  and the sense of responsibility of the man who has arrived.  As he progresses in years and  position, a man develops a  feeling of general responsibility instead of a spirit of private adventure.  There are three ways in  which the young person enter-  ing'. business should' try to  prove his capacity to bear responsibility; he should accept  accountability for his actions,  he, should demonstrate his dependability.witin reference to  things -^- money, commodities  or tasks ��� allotted to his custody, and he should show his  competency to act on general  instructions without detailed  guidance.  * *    . *'  The only way to. develop a  sense  of responsibility)  ia . to  *&ltfiffipk$;l lb^u%:.^rfe^i^iblie"i'i*;.;  This' demands'"sound of'r  one's., qiialities of imagination,  sp as to see the wide horizon,  b^clcbhing; perception, t^ de-  tect the chances ^immediately  at hand;. and. judgment, to decide ! that. this is ttie way of  mature life one^ want?.  Anyone may. be &vwkte$L  arid enlightened by this little  experiment. Take any ,pr��b-  lem, tiny or big, occurring in  your daily, work, a problem  that is just a little ahead of.  ycoir present job and responsi-  bilitjyt.. Get the facte, for and  against; put them in the scales  of yOur judgment, and weigh  them; decide what action you  and the  class of '55  would take if the responsibility were yours; check your results against what actually  happens; go back over your  reasoning to see whether, in  the light of; what happened  when the decision was put into effect, you have reason to  change your mind..  . *   i.  *      *  The man who seeks to qualify himself for positions of responsibility will *. master the  disciplines of thorough - going,  and patient analysis of questions requiring his answer. He  will learn to> differentiate  quickly what is significant  and what is inconsequential.  He >will train himself to' appraise human motives and to  assess probable and possible  results with dispassionate precision.  Training under pressure in  a group is the finest discipline  in the world. In a disciplined  group there is no room for the  fidgety, easily irritated person. People learn to conceal  their dislikes and their disappointments and to maintain  their composure. They rid  their minds of many false images, thus clearing the way  for straight thinking when  they attain higher rank.  The acceptance of responsibility demands courage. Men  grow up with different degrees  of courage, but every natural  disposition may be    improved  by training and exercise.  ���The Royal Bank of Canada  Monthly Letter. ;  The power of time and com*  pound interest offered by an  Investors Syndicate Plan  allows you to accumulate  the money necessary for a,'  worryless retirement.

The ships were;being^refuelled  before proceeding elsewhere.  Unexpectedly a storm arose  and its fury was such that the  naval ships chafed and fretted  at their moorings, chains were  , snapped "and in a few-hours a  great deal of damage was  done. ; The hurricane came  from the east and for a short'  time it looked as if the vessels  would be dashed against., the  rocks.- "'"There is only one  thing to do," said the commander, "we must put to sea and  face the ;storm.'V.;So the ships  ^'faced:'i^0:���-hurricah0;���;arJld found  safety by doing what at first  seemed a foolhardy;thing. ;���;���  ��� '������������ ���''������':';;.*���'.v -*>.yyx*xxx- ���' ���"������  We often hear people talk  about a sheltered; life, a life  where one is shielded and projected/frbrnu^ experiences, .

The result  was that instead of being safe  his want of courage was his  chief undoing. Most of the difficulties we meet could easily  be overcome if we were brave  enough to face them squarely.  ���> *      *      *  There is a good illustration  of this in the Old Testament.  As the Israelites approached  Canaan, spies were sent out to  view the land and make a report* They returned and made  their report to Moses and Aaron. They said it was a wonderful land with abundant water  and fertile soil. It was a landi  of wheat and barley and such  fruit as they had never seen  before. They brought a cluster  of,'grapes so large that it required two men to carry it. So  , far it was a mignificent report  but they added: "We were not  able to go against the people  for they were stronger than  we . . .we saw' giants, the  sons of Anak, and we were in  our own sight as grasshoppers'  and so we were in their sight."'  *      * ������*���������.  Braver men than these, however,, spoke up and urged * a  forward movement, such men  a's- Joshua and Caleb. So the  Israelites entered the land and,  possessed, it. And just here is  an interesting thing; nothing  was ever ���.'seen or heard of any  giants. No doubt there were  some tall men there j but their  size was.; greatly exaggerated.  In the eyes of the timid spies  fear magnified difficulties.  They were fearful with noth-  ��� ing to be afraid of. Joshua,  like the <- British commander,  knew that the way out of  danger was to. face and conquer it. There is truth in this  old verse by Aanon Hiil:  Tender handed stroke a nettle,  And it stings you for your.  pains;  Grasp it like a man of mettle^  And it gpft as silk remains.  . *      *      *  Our quotation today is by  Frank Crane: "If every man  were a millionaire, the: world  ; would speedily go to the devil.

I had an old car in Burnaby  and I wanted to get it up here  to Gibsons. . It was a sniall  thing. I onlyt paid S5 for it. It  was all stripped; only the hood  was attached, so I built a box.  on the back resembling a 1/2-  ton truck.  I went to the Union Steamship to get it shipped up. They  wanted $14.50 to do so, with,  no guarantee when it would.  arrive or where;, either here  or Roberts Creek, sq I told  them they were crazy. The'  thing only weighed 1200 lbs.  However, I got it up'on' a  fish packer. It cost me a couple  packages of. cigarettes to do so.-  One of my first trips was  up from the wharf in it, Wally  Peterson and I. I had 200 fathoms of cork line and leads  coiled nicely in the back. Coming up past Winn's house, I  remarked to Wally that the  old car had still plenty of  power and going faster all the  way up: '  Finally I looked benind and  I could see my cork line bobbing up" on the road behind. It  uncoiled itself all the way "up.  I told Wally to take the wheel  and back down easy. I just  started coiling it back on the  truck. Backing past Winn's  house, he was standing in  front * and shouted iri that  squeaky voice of his, "How is  the fishing,  M.S.?"

Business transacted, included the appointment of a committee to give further consideration to the proposal for  Three Channel Education in  the high schols.  Another committee was  named to circularize the sec-  ondary English teachers of the  North Shore regarding their  views on the adequacy as to  content of the reading courses  in Grades I to VI. It is hoped  that such a survey will, be  follefwed by a ��� discussion in  the English section at the Fall  teachers' convention.  The matter of the joint  meeting of teachers, and Parent-Teacher Association members in the Fall was settled  by suggesting Sept. 17 as a  suitable date for the meeting.

In  this letter    Mr. Fahrni    com  plains about the poor turn-out    roads. I don;t know why    he  at the last School Board meeting. This is true; it was a poof  turn-out, but, how can anyone  expect any more. I have been  informed by a very reliable  person, that the people living  at Andy Bay were not notified  of the said meeting, and consequently dad not know tha't  such a meeting was being held.  Regarding Mr. Fahrrii's comments on the letter signed  "Gambier Island Taxpeyer"  credit for knowing .more of  the situation as it existed in  1950 than Mr. Fahrni knows.  Mr. Fahrni says he represents the people cf Gambier  Island. True, he was elected to  office, but does his responsibility end there? . Unlike the  late Capt. Francis Drage, Mr.  Fahrni does not; let us know  what is going on. Neither does  he come 'round and get our  views on matters which are  our concern. Should any situation arise which needs the  attention of the School Board,  Mr. Fahrni is conspicuous by  his absence.  Having read the letter signed "Gambier Island Taxpayer"  I can assure Mr. Fahrni that I  am quite in agreement with  that writer. Mr. Fahrni may  not be aware of the fact, but  it was in my home that Col.  Burnett promised us the school  for Sept., 1950. The late Capt.  Francis Drage was there and  so was Mr. William Sutherland  lion, I rhave heard that several    additional-time' spent as school  of the families are planning to    children-(for make no mistake,  as long as. they stay at school  they are school children). Such  stude'nts''dp\:not^.write any better - than prdinary students.  They d0 riot appear to have  read any; more. They contribute no more to the class by  way of discussion than do oth-  leave Gambier Island, so why  try to :waste our tax. money.  Mr. Fahrni; also takes exception, to "Gambier Island Taxpayer's"   .reference      to      the  should!, do that, because they  are not in good condition in  winter.

Mr. Lower again: "Based on  to  keep them even    passable,    my    experience    in     Western  and Mr.  Fahrni    doesn't    use  them anyway.  When the school was ��� first  proposed for Gambier Island,  I was 100 percent for it. Now,  since my' daughter will be  passing into Grade Six in September I do not see so much  need of it.  'True we have a few small  children, but it will be three  or four years before they are  ready for school, and by that  time there may be more fami-.  lies on the Island "(I said maybe), and we may have more  roads. .  In closing let me quote from  Mr. C. A. Lett's letter.

KENNETT  Visitors to the .Sunshine  Coast were treated to one of  the finest Victoria Day weekends in quite a few years insofar as the weather was 'concerned. Otherwise; the month  of May was hardly merry, but  overlyi wet and chilly.  Rainfall was half an inch  above, normal at 2.83 inches  and fell on 12 days during the  mOnth. Mean temperature for  the month was 48.5 degrees or  a full two degrees below the  normal figure.  May 14 took the honors  with 63:8 degrees for the  warmest day of the month  while May 8 was the chilliest  ait 33.4."Morning humidity (7  a.m.) averaged 83 percent,  while evening humidity (7  p.m.) averaged 75 percent  with the driest day'May 20,  when the humidity lowered!  to 31 percent. Cloud cover  for the month was 59 percent,  and the mean maximum temperature 56.5 percent, mean  minimum 40.5  percent.

Richard's wife  Ethel was carrying her first  baby on her back and her face  had a white mask painted on  it to signify her first child.  ; BarvOle Park, the name of  the ranch has a rugged history. General Campbell built  afort there in 1825 as a stronghold in the Kaffir wars. This  fort still stands. Thi house is  a��new one for in the 1830's the  Kaffirs burned it to the  ground but spared the inhabitants. The ranch manager lives  in the house built in the 1840's  inside the    stone    and    brick  "..wall with gun apertures fully  visible.  The ranch house staff drinks  rain water caught on the nearby green painted galvanized  roofs. Water is boiled before  use, however.    Windmills sup-  ���ply good water for the- stock  but it is held in some doubt,  for humans. Another human  drink is calabash milk. This is  whole'unpasteurized milk  aged in a hollow gourd where  it gets its zest and a tang  sharper than buttermilk.  On the African farm there  is a constant fight against the  spreading cf the bush, as all  African woods are called. You  enter this bush with respect  for in it live the yellow cobra,  the ringals or spitting cobra,  the hamba or dangerous African puff adder and the quick  green tree snake. You never  walk without a stout stick. I  saw no snake except a , dead  puff adder which one of the  "���- boys killed on the way to the  kraal (corral).  It is at night that the farm  is at its best. First came the  strident screech of the guinea  fpwl, fyling to their arboreal roosts, then the last plunging beat of the African doves  calling.  Soon a breeze came up, the'  Southern Cross was visible  and the haunting moan of the  jackals brought angry chattering from the monkeys. The  African night does truly have  a mystery because cf the teeming unseen life in its darkness.  The eerie euphobia trees silhouetted against the sky, punctuate the darkness.  Just < before leaving the  farm t0 ride through about 20  miles of pineapple land in  full production, I met the  greatest dignitary on the  place.

Finally when    flying    from  Port Elizabeth to East London  and Durban, the plane passed  directly over the controlled  fields of Barville Park and I  knew that in the kaffirboom  (trees) the doves would be  measuring time with the regularity of a piston.
