The students were welcomed by Mr. Drummond, the  chairman of the commission  who thought it interesting that  some of the up-and-coming  generation should be taking  time out to learn something of  municipal operations.

Classv 8, - Peninsula Dance  School,; Seehelt, 76' v *    v  The problem of garbage disposal received a thorough' going over, at Tuesday night's  meeting of the Village Commissioners and it was revealed  that less than half of Gibsons  householders were using the  present service.    ',.  It was the problem facing  the present service that  brought the issue out into the  open. Mr. R. Rhodes, the garbage collector for the village  informed the commission he  was faced with extra expense  as the result of the Forestry  . Department ordering him to  make a fireguard surrounding  the present incinerator. This  fireguard would mean the  clearing of land for ,100 feet  in all directions from the actual incinerator. j>He explained  that owing to the present  small income he derived from  present collections from a  small numberj. of Gibsons  householders, he was unable  to face such an expense. and  sought municipal aid.  The operatioa ' would involve the cutting away of  brush now covering in area  to be cleared and the covering  of trash areas with dirt. There  was also the installation of a  screen over the incinerator to  - keep burning paper and  sparks from escaping but Mr.  Rhodes had this matter in  hand. He could not, he said,  see his way clear to face the  expense of clearing the land  according to Forestry Department requirements.  Mr., Rhodes stressed the  points that if the work was  not done the Forestry Department would hot allow him to  use the area as an incinerator  and that Gibsons would be  left without a garbage disposal service. As a result of Mr.  Riipdes^Bi^resentajUbn theu  cbmmisSiOri", voteo?*$5u for the  clearing of the land according  to the Forestry Dpartment request. This was not passed before the whole question of .  garbage disposal was delved  into scmewhat deeply.  Dr.. Hugh. Inglis, medical  health officer-was present as  the hia'tter held some concern  for him, he explained ��� Mr. W.  Williams, the sanitation official for the district was also  present,, and he supported Mr.  Rhodes'  argument.  Commissioner Crowhurst  said seme financial assistance  should be offered Mr. Rhodes  if he was to carry on. "If he  quits we would have to take:  some action on the matter," he  said. It was pointed out by-  Commissioner Ritchey that;  the expense of garbage dis-;  posal in other municipalities:'  took a large part of the tajcj  revenue and if Gibsons rate-;  payers were to be saddled;  with an official garbage col-,  lection it would increase taxes;  considerably. ;  Commissioner Crowhu rst,  said land would have to be;  purchased, a truck supplied;  and men to run the department paid and this would run  into money.  Clerk Robert Burns was of  the opinion* that not one-half  of the Gibsons householders^  were taking advantage of the  present garbage collection system. He rioted some business  places were burning their own  'trash. y^.'  "As matters now stand :var:;;  ious commissioners expressed);  the opinion that: considerable,  garbage was being^ dumped in  places where it should not be,  dumped and that unless advan-l  tage was. taken of the present  system, Gibsons ratepayers  could be faced with the expense cf having to supply for;  themselves an expensive disposal system.  4 new homes  Four new homes valued    at  $3,000 each  are  to    be    constructed  in Gibsons  this sum- ;  mer.    Permits for them were  approved by    Tuesday   nights '���--.  commission meeting.  They will be four room, one  storey homes and three    will  be built by W.  J.  and  R.   Ci  Emerson.    Henry   Smith    an'd^.  Waiter , Peterson    will   , build^  ' the'-' 'fdurthv^.-^'1-:;- >'- ^;; :���-':"������' ���'-���*"���'  Effective May 12, in keeping with B.C. Telephone Company policy in other exchanges of a similar size, the Gibsons Telephone Exchange will  cease to be an agency and  will ccme under the administration  of the company.  Arrangements have been  made with Harry Winn, present agent, to turn over the  entire operation to the    com-  '"pany on that date.  Work is continuing on the  expanded   switchboard   recent-  , ly installed in - the telephone  office and it should be in  complete operation before  long, giving the Gibsons exchange a two position* switchboard instead of the old one-  position type.  On ,the Seehelt.- Peninsula,  the' company installed; additional switchboard, at Seehelt  and at Gibsons. Additional outside plant was installed at  both places, and the number  of parties was reduced on  many overloaded lines. Outside pay telephones were installed at Seehelt, t Gibsons,  Rcberts^.Creek and Port Mellon, and two public telephones  were installed at ^Pender Harbour. The Roberts Creek pay-  station involved the stringing  of an additional line from  Gibsons. The Poi*t Mellon  long distance line was rebuilt  to improve service in that  area. A detailed survey of the  entire area was made in order to determine the imme-;  diate and future needs of the  district in regard to telephone  service. --.i^ss'  FIRE CALLS  Chuck Winegarden's home  was saved on Sunday morning;  by the prompt action of the.  Gibsons Fire Brigade, when'  fire spread from the chimney  into the attic and roof.  A false alarm was turned in  before 8 a.m. Wednesday when  a garbage fire at the corner  of Trueman road was reported.  . Walt Emerson passing the  fire hall reported the facts to  the Brigade and saved the  run.  wmtn  The young man with the hat  in last' week's Wlio?? feature  did not even know he had  ever -had a bat like that.

HOSPITAL DRWEEXPANDS  Many people throughout the  Peninsula have been asking  how the Hospital Campaign is  progressing. The answer, briefly, is that it is making steady  progress. The hundreds of  supporters of St. Mary's want  to make it the best hospital of  its size and situation in#B.C.  ��� From the, begihriing, the  Hospital Board . realized . the  literature sent to every house-  fijgdet In.'.the a^ea; served by the  Hospital was primarily.informativeand that' it must be. supplemented , by' the ��� appointment  ;pf volunteers to'r canvass' each  areg tp enstfre' every resident  of thedistrict is given; tlie! op-  'porturiity to become a . member of the Hospital Society  and to make an additional donation'' in' whatever amount  they  can spare.        :  ���The Board believes that in  all parts of the district there  are many  ��� Organizations    and  societies headed by1 ladies  keenly interested in all that  advances the community, and  the Board proposes to solicit  their services to put the campaign over the top.  The board realizes a fund-  raising campaign of this nature cannot be completed in a  short time, :but it emphasizes  that the results to date indicate the eventual success of  ; the campaign.

If you, the  people of the selected area  have any questions that are  not answered below send  them care of the Coast News  and we will attempt to have  the answers in a following  issue.  ' . What are the boundaries of  the proposed .district?  The tentative boundaries of  the proposed ' district are; a  line from the end of the Grower Point road to the Seaview  Cemetery, then along the  back of the existing inhabited properties to the North  Road including properties  both sides to Langdale Creek  and down the creek to the  beach.  Why so large  an area?  We feel that the past records of the Gibsons Volunteer Fire Dept. do definitely  show that they have been servicing  this area in the    past,  limited only to the equipment  at their disposal. These boundaries include the majority of  the . closely populated areas  and what is likely to be the  area of any immediate increase in property establishments. By including the largest  possible number of property  owners we will reduce the  cost per  individual.  How will this organized district be set up?  For large unorganized areas  such as this the provincial  government has made provision under the "Waters Act"  for these areas to organize in  (Continued on Page 6)  volunteer > workers who deserve courtesy and the appreciation of all those they call  upon. - The first examples of  the success that attends personal canvassing are indicated;  by the excellent results obtained by ..two workers, Mrs. Mon-  rufet of Roberts Creek and  Mrs. Elsa Warden in Fender  Harbour, at Mia-d<>ehTs Point.

A party of close to 30 persons from Vancouver and Sunshine Coast points attended  opening ceremonies at the  O&O Camp at the top of Narrows Arm, Seehelt Inlet.  They watched the loading of  the first load of logs then followed down to the dump  where with a mighty splash  the lead finally floated.  Among the party were machinery and cable representatives, logging company officials and representatives from  MacMillan and Bloedel.  Leaving Porpoise Bay in  three boats, the O&O, Duffy,  and Lady Beth the party landed at the camp, situated right  at the end of Northwest Arm  where they were shepherded  by Ernie Pearson, O&O representative in Seehelt and  shown around the camp.  ���yAmong those who took the.  trip were Jack Sexton, of the  leg buying division MacMillan  and Bloedel;"Chick Qually, assistant manager and.

The camp is the pride and joy  of Ted, the junior member in  the partnership and it was his  skill that went into the layv  out of the camp.  It is situated on not too  steep a slope with areas bull-  dczed out in which the camp  ' buildings are situated. Coming  straight up from the dock one  reaches the office first. On the  same level are other buildingj:  including the cook house anS  dining hall, a guest house wa&  further on the married quar-  -ters. -Other houses on other  levels' house the staff and  equipment. Construction, is underway for a large garage an&  machine shop and other buildings are contemplated.  The approach to the camp  by boat first of all reveals the  tidiness of tho general layout  Buildings are - placed in rows  and their white painted structures with green trim and reiS  reefs present a pleasing pie- -  ture. Ted, who did the planning for the camp is pleased  with the result and expects to  lay on improvements as time  goes by.  Tied up at the dock during  the visit to the camp were  four boats and two airplanes,  one flowri in by Denny Der-  oche of B.C. Airlines and^ thfc  other by Jack Sexton with  other MacMillan and Bloedel  representatives. After the trap  ended the planes ferried some  of the-.guests, back ..to Porpoise  Bay while others used the  speedboats and the KenalmaE.  After following along a weH  planned logging road to the  site of operations about a mile  or so from, the camp the party  explored further along . the  road and then returned to a  dinner of cold turkey, ham,  salad and dessert with copious  tea and coffee added.  The distance from Porpoise  Bay to the camp is roughly 25  miles and, it is a scenic trip  well worth making. On entering the camp office one sweep  of the eye finally rests on a  sign above the Boss's desk  which reads "Silence!, Genius  at Work" and when The Coast,  News editor entered he found,  many geniuses present who-  were far from being silent  coupled with a demonstration  on the radio-telephone which  raised various people at Sfi^  chelt with- ease and clarity.  Comments heard during iise  visit inferred that the camp  was a show-place and that it  had within its orbit sufficient  work t0 keep loggers busy for  at least ten years or more.  All were struck with the neatness of the layout.  There is a staff of 22 cm  hand and the cook and bull  cook cperate in an efficient -  looking kitchen, ��� The dining  room section is well'-"laid out  with three sections able t��  seat more than 22^ men at-one  sitting.  Both Ted Sr. and Ted Jr.  went out of their way to intake  the stay of their visitors ��� as  comfortable as possible^ ��� The  area in which the camp is situated is as scenic as many  well-advertised  routes.

Technically, Gibsons Fire Department is organized  for the Village oil Gibsons but in the past contributions  Save been made by individuals outside Gibsons boundaries  to help maintain the Fire department and have it available  in the event of a fire beyond Gibsons boundaries.  Such an arrangement cannot last forever.. Gibsons  Is reaching a point municipally, where the legal aspects of  the use of the fire department must be considered. Take for  example, a fire outside Gibsons and while the Fire Department is away, a home or business place catches fire in  Gibsons is destroyed. One ca^i naturally assume the Gibsons  taxpayer, who has paid taxes for the maintenance of a Fire  Department would have a legal claim against the munici-  Iplity.  Such an eventuality is a remote instance of many  things that could happen. Gibsons Commissioners would  Eke to help anywhere near here in event of a fire but it  has a legal responsibility to its taxpayers first.  Expansion of the area in which the Fire Department  ban operate is the only way out of a situation likely to get  worse instead of better as the result of natural growth in  Gibsons and the surrounding countryside. It might cost  xesidents involved some cash to help maintain the Fire De-,  ]p,rtment but a fire department is like fire insurance ������ a  .good thing.to have just in case.  The King's Men  The King's Men, some 15 young men headed by Dr.  Grant from Ryerson United Church in Vancouver last Sunday in Gibson Memorial United Church, exemplified a  spirit of religon of which we can stand some more.  These young men who gave up their weekend in  Vancouver to^go to Keats Island Saturday and do some  shingling on the roof of a United Church building came to  Gibsons Sunday and took over the morning service, even  to the sermon/given by Dr. Grant.' '  The King's Men is an organization started by Dr.  /Sraht some 30 years ago and, he said, graduates of The  King's Men can now be.found in many parts of the world.  The service was an exhilarating one ^vvith the soimd  of young men's voices mingling- with those-$f the large  congregation. Dr. Grant's words of inspiration were as; vi-  Sra'nt as the voices of the young men. ' The King's Men  should be welcomed wherever they go. .  Our forays into local history  always have to start a long  way off, this time in Chatham,  Lambton County, Ont. The  Kiel rebellion had reached an  inglorious  conclusion  and Mr.  Vanj Home's railway was   _ en-'  joying a respite from its creditors  and  surveying the    vast  territory with which it had to  cope.  Our subject being free,  white and 21 was picturing  to himself the coves and bays  of the Pacific coast that had  big trees right at the water's  edge and "this here railway  ran right to them, by heck.''  Nothing would do but he had  to go and have a look for himself.    '  In the meantime a Lincolnshire Englishman who had also sojourned at Chatham had  already, with "his two sons,  reached Oyster Bay, V.I. via  Frisco where they built a~  sloop called the Swamp Angel,  length 28 ft., beam 18 ft. This  is what Chuck thought she  might have been but I think  time has colored his memory  a bit. He says that when rowing her in against the -tide  sometimes, she was more  broad than long.  MAN ABOUT TOWN  (BY L.S.J.)  ; The men were Dad Gibson  and his two sons, Ralph and  George and the year 1886. Our  man arrives a while later and  goes to work clearing land in  the Fair view district. He does  not know where but maintains  that anyone who expected to  live long enough to make use  of the proposed lots was regarded as mentally unbalanced. We catch up with him  at Gibson's place neighboring  with the Chathamers ��� ganging up as it were. JHere he is  defined as Chuck and from  here cri he takes his place in  the history of our-village and.  marries Gibson girl Emily and  raises a  family.  He made a few trips to the  logging camps up coast at odd  times but there was generally  ���work arcund the Sound in the  summertime and the winter  was something that ^ was got  over as soon as possible and"  by the best .means available.

We were riding the  srab of "The Canadian," the  all-steel streamliner which left  Vancouver on its east bound  inaugural run Sunday night.  JJis we rounded a curve be-,  tween Lake Louise and Banff,  Engineer Art Campbell spied  four elk resting on the track.

Almost everyone else in the  mountain country was out to  see The Canadian. Early morning crowds thronged the station at Revelstoke.' At B?tnff  the platform was packed, and.  even the school children were  lined up with their teachers  to see the new streamliner.  ��� Aboard the deluxe train,  amateur photographers had a  field day today.

Even the  conductor has to.be part time  announcer, telling you in advance the time and duration  of each stop.  There are two rolling restaurants on this new : train.  One is a spankingly modern  diner, with its courtly steward and crew of 12. Its wide  picture windows and pastel'  . decorative scheme bear little  resemblance to an old fashioned railway dining car. However, the prices are familiar.  Popular priced' meals are  available in the forwaVd scenic deme car, which boasts a  smart coffee   shop.  Entry of The Canadian into  service highlights The Canadian Pacific's purchase of 173  streamlined, ��� stainless steel  coaches from the Budd Company of Philadelphia, a $40,-  000,000 order which spells a  new standard for transcontinental travel. It means 16 hours  less travel time from Montreal to Vancouver, plus a  much smoother ride.  Part of the saving in 'time  is by speed of the big. diesel  units, part by shortened stops  at big cities, part by eliminat  ing of stops between divisional  points. We went through Mission City so fast Sunday night  one hardly noticed it. North  Bend is the only stop between  Port Coquitlam and Kam-  loops.  The Canadian makes * no  stops from. Kamlocps to Revelstoke so if Okahagan or Fraser  Valley 'travellers want to  board it they must do so at  Kamloops or the coast.  Smoothness of the streamliner's riding qualities and the  comfort of its air conditioning  may be judged from the" fact  that we slept from Agassiz  clear through  to Revelstoke.  Interior appointments of  The Canadian are striking. In  the scenic dome lounge cars  are murals by noted Canadian  artists, depicting scenes from  National or Provincial parks  after which the cars are named.   ;' T:,.:_- .'���.;., ���. :' ^'.,.

Chief Justice  Gordon M.., Sloan lit a special  station.< light ; with , the new  streamliner'sr emblem emblazoned on it after being .piped  into the station by kilted Scottish, pipers. Aboard the train,  each woman passenger received a red rosebud, each youngster a miniature diesel engine.  Headed by William Manson,  CPR region vice-president,  company high brass were all  about checking details of the  mile-by-mile progress of the  new train. Everyone caught  the spirit" of the historic trip.  Succeeding runs of The Canadian will be much less exciting, but its comfort, convenience and speed! are certain  to appeal to the general public, fan-fare or no fan-fare.

After the benediction was pronounced, the  congregation waited as was  customary until the president  and his friends walked down  the aisle out of the church.  The lady said: "I was amazed  to see how lame he was. He  had braces to support him  and, by my watch, it took  him over' six minutes before  he could stand tip' ; and then  slowly walk. I doubt whether  many people ever knew how  terribly handicapped he was:"  Here was a man Who might  haye spent his life' in a wheelchair ! feeling sorry for himself arid becoming sour, ���''.' instead he fought on arid -became  one of the dominant figures of  modern times.

One cf the most fascinating  of all Bible stores is that of  Joseph and his brethren.  Twenty-two years after they  had cruelly sold.him into slay,  ery they stood before him in  Egypt. He was now governor  of Egypt.and administrator of  food.  Famine had fallen upon the  land .'and Jacob and his sons  were .in great distress. There  was scarcely sufficient food  to keep people from starving;  ���'"not sufficient grass .to'.,', save  the flocks and herds from perishing from hunger. So ten of  Jacob's sons ������ the ten who  had once sold him to Egyptian merchants ��� humbly  came to beg for food. Long  years of famine had ieft its  mark upon the faces of these  men. They were weary, cfis-  cquraged and very humble a's  they knelt before their brother whom they did riot recognize.   ��� ���....  Joseph recognized them instantly. There was no mistaking these shabby-bearded shepherds. Over 20 years had taken its toll but Joseph eagerly  scanned ^their faces and memories of long ago welled up in  his mind and heart. He resolved not to reveal his identity  for a while and so spoke to;  them through an interpreter.  ��� Then a strange thing happened. Joseph was so deeply  moved at the sight of his  brethren as to be completely  overcome. He sent them away  and insisted that when they  returned they must bring their  ��� youngest ' brother, Benjamin.  In the meantime Simeon was  held as a hostage.  When next they came to  Egypt for'food Benjamin was  with them and now all eleven  brothers, still unaware of Joseph's identity, brought    gifts  and bowed themselves to the  earth before him. The sight of  his brothers, this time with  Benjamin, was too much for  Joseph. He sought where to  weep. He retired from their  presence and washed, his face  and then appeared before  them. He washed his face, that  is, he removed all traces of  the anguish of his soul, he  did not yet want them to  know how deep was his distress'.   '  Across the long centuries  that divide us from Joseph's  time we can still admire his  magnificent restraint. We often learn of people who pass  through some severe affliction, some terrible experience  enough to break their liearts,  but, as we say, they pull themselves together and carry of*. ���  Nearly every day we; live we  meet people who, like Joseph,  wash away the tear stains and  outwardly wear a smile in .order to conceal the sorrow  within.

Canada and selling the aluminum—over a ton of it. Another year The King's Men
sold  1,300    dozen,   hot    cross
buns to raise funds for their
worthwhile  work.
They also have taken services in different churches
such as St. George's United,
Grace. United, Central City
Mission and'services at Oakal-
la Prison Farm. It was during
their recent trip to Oakalla
that William Babcock escaped
posing as one of the choir
rnembers. .
The King's Men were in the
Gibsons area for the service-
last weekend, and were at
Keat's Island in connection
with a project, shingling the
rocf of-the United Church pavilion there.
The; sermon address was
based on a verse from the
Scripture lesson, "What shall
it profit a man if he gain the
whole world and lose his own
soul?" Dr. Grant stressed that
the important spiritual work
in life can easily be shirked
and put off. He said we should
ask ourselves the important
question "Am I assuming responsibility for the spiritual
life of the community even if
only by example— by attending church regularly and supporting worthwhile organizations?"

funeral cortege
There were many who
mourned the tragic passing of
a'.little boy when the beloved
padre of the Columbia Coast
Mission, Canon Greene and
Mr. E. W. Christmas, performed the final rites of the church
for Paul Martin Warnock.
The beautiful chapel of St.
Mary's was hushed as Canon
Green searched his heart for
the words that might bring
some comfort and hope to the
bereaved family, grieving for
one taken by the sea at the
very beginning of life. Outside the Chapel the bright sunshine made contrast with the
moving words of the funeral
service and the tiny, flower-
banked casket within.
After the service the flowers
were carried down to the wait-
ing boats for the strangely
beautiful funeral procession at
sea. One by one, the boats
moved off in a long silent line
for the service at the graveside. .     •     ...
Everything that the Church
and sorrowing friends and
neighbors could do to show
the sorrowing family that
their grief was shared by all
who knew them had been done
and now the family would be
alone to be helped . dnly by
two great healing forces, faith
and time. S.C.B.
The guest speaker, Mrs.
Clara Nygren, district nurse,
gave a very thorough outjine
of her duties on the Peninsula
at the last  Ipwanis meeting.
It was a surprise to the
members to learn of the extent of her territory and the
many projects she has. She
stressed the close co-operation
between her department here
and the VON. " The Kiwanis
Club was very appreciative of
her interesting discussion.
The new library plans have
been submitted to the Provincial Library Board for approval and work should start
very soon en the project. The
Sunshine Coast Kiwanis Club
plans' on the erection of a
similar library in Seehelt after completion of this.

This     is  roughly the process.    '  An increase in faxes? How  much?  Well, that is hard to. tie  down. The committee has jno  desire to make, wild guesses,  and while an aitempt has-been  made to find out the assessed  value of the property " within  the boundaries, we have [not,  as yet been able to get'a concrete answer. A well organized fire department in ah area  does bring down the cost " of  insurance (it also reduces the  individual property loss in the  event of fire,, insured or not).  The cost of fire protection per  individual property owner- in  an area this size will be at  least, partially, if not wholly,  offset By the reduction hi:insurance premiums. Too, it is  the intention of this committee to see that the prograrn. is  limited to only the minimum  requirements in the initial  stage of development and  gradually build -the department up each year so that the  tax burden due to any ^ increase will be kept to a minimum.  The committee is still attempting to compile assessment values, etc. so that we  will be able to supply you at  least with an approximate answer in the very near future.  Why do we need all this organizing when we ate enjoying fire protection new?  The existing fire department is maintained by the village of Gibsons Landing an/i  as' past records show, the majority of the fire,calls answered have been outside the village limits. The commissioners1  are undoubtedly right in stating that they cannot continue  to burden their taxpayers with  the cost of fire protection for  inon-paying outsiders. (Now  don't get mad. The secretary  ���of this committee is an- outsider as are sotme of the firemen, past and present). . We  know that many of those outside the village have attempted in mainy ways to carry  their fair share of the burden,  but it is unbalanced. It is not  right for your neighbor to pay  for your fire protection and  neither is it right for you to  pay his. Under the plan proposed every property owner  will "enjoy good fire protection  arid will pay only in accord  with the value of his.prdtected  property. f  D:wfl .organising under Jibe  W��i����'Act.::m��.an .tfiit we will  hpi*.^'in'cre��!ie;ii' bo*.*B\:in'"..flie.;;fii-  tujr��f to CTyerV-water ^erriees;  . iww'eis: street lighting ������ ;cr ��� J*e����  jpitalst  *Io.

The cost, would be spread)  over all the property owners'  thereby alleviating the Gibsons owner to some extent. It  would mean additional voluntary firemen. ��� It means still  better fire protection ...  Would not a depi. such as  this require a paid: chief?  No! At least not now. A' full  time paid chief would have to  receive at least $3000 per  year and with our present  population we could not afford that and buy the necessary equipment. And why not?  The volunteer chiefs you have  had in the past and still, have,  have done a good job.  What would a, new truck  cost? /'-.'_  Under the system outlined  (and from our past experience  in the dept.) it^would be best  to buy a new modern truck  for -the additional piece of  equipment.- If this were. purchased by* us as an individual  fire, dept. the cheapest equipped truck would cost $13,000  to $15,000. However, if the  citizens of the area as a whole  could pass muster in its activities and interest in Civil Defence (your fire dept. is training in this line now) we would  put ourselves in a % favorable  positionto purchase the' same  equipmnt for one-third of the  cost: the provincial government and federal governments  paying a third each. So, I  might addi you are cutting off  your own nose if you turn, it  up the next time you hear  Civil Defence mentioned.  Is not this move toward en  improvement: district just a  move by the Village Commission to get out from under the  cost of T'ixy Protection?  No! Thev.village will, get out  from under paying your fire  protection costs, if you live  outside, it, . whether you go  along g�� the improvement dis-  tri ct idea or not; It is some  two years past since the members of the Gibsons ^Volunteer  Fire Bept./began to hear deep  rumblings in -the.. Village Com-  mission about outsider fires and  it' is -because of these rumblings that the dept. members  decided something n'ad ~fo be  ddn"e;%fe*Ki fe^o^er^-thje- out-. -  ��� comf; ��� ������"������'.������.���:;'��� ;;���.;.; r--..  -,.v No'wl What ebout cost, sier>  ' iouslv? Any; idea?  Well, it is still a tough problem but let's analyze it..    As  we have said before the Village has   been    paying    your  fire protection bills. I believe  that last year's costs were figured at nine mills (I could be  corrected on this) per assessed  dollar    of    village      property  ONLY. We can safely assume  that assessed value of Gibsons  Village is less than one-fourth  of that of the-whole area so if  the costs were spread ever the  whole  area, it  would  amount  to less than 2.25 mills per assessed dollar Which    in    turn.;,  means if your home was    as-',  .sessed at $3,000 your fire pro-  '.tectioil woujd cost    you    less;;  ;-th~n   $6.75  per year. Remem-*,;  ber it doesn't take too    much.'  equipment  to : service    the'  whole area, large as it is, than ���  the GVFD is -serving now.. An-  . ether point -too is that if the  initial purchases tend,    to    be  too high it may. be possible to  spread,  the    taxation    burden  over a  longer period.   ���  How- t  ever this is just conjecture'and.  has no place here but we do  hope  that when  you  think  it  over it will tend to show that  the cost per individual  is not  high when spread  among    us  all ��� in fact, very cheap for  the protection it will afford.  Well! What do we d0 now?  The committee hopes that  you will think this over��� discuss it with your neighbor ���  send your unanswered, questions in to the Coast News and  finally, when a man appears at  your door with petition read  it over carefujy; ask the questions that have arisen in your  mind and if he cannot answer  them tell him to get the answers and come back but ���  DON'T just refuse to sign for  any reason. Think it out, sign,  then come to the public meeting when it is called . . .  Last but far from  least, be  courteous to that guy with the  petition; he will undoubtedly  be one of the firemen that has  been giving you the fire protection you have had and maybe he (as a Village property  owner) has been paying for- it  too. ;  WASHING MACHINES  ���  Last year Canada sold 4,886  home electric washing machines to 54 countries for $529,-  681.

In the afternoon game the  strong Gibson's Firemen Club  swamped the Pender Harbour  Athletics 22-5 in a slow, loosely played game. Pender didn't  show any of the strength and  hustle that brought them into  fourth place last year but it  could be that they will hit  their stride later and if they  do they will be a lot of trouble  to the rest of the league.  Twenty-three senior students  of Elphinstone High School  accompanied Mr. Trueman on  a trip to Vancouver to tour the  Vancouver Vocational Institute on April.21. The students  were Avril Lucken, Sundi  Stroshien, Donna ��� temieux,  Diane Pearson, Barbara Colls,  Joyce Connor, Coral Benn,  Rheta Lemieux, Joy Scott,  Glen Wicklund, Henry Strosh-  ein, Ray Stockwell, Doug Livingstone, Doug Davies, Ken  Ladds, John Robinson, Carmen Robinson, Edward Wiren,  Ted Scott, and Donald- McDonald.  The party left the school on  the Seehelt Motor Transport  bus at 10 a.m. They reached  the institute at 12.15 p.m. and  enjoyed a fine lunch in the  school cafeteria served by student cooks.  Mr. Goard, institute principal, Mr. Clarke and, Mr.  Moore, vice-principals, sat  with" the students at lunch and  answered general questions.  Then Mr. Clarhje conducted  the group through the institute  .starting with the navigation  school on the top floor with its  bridge and radar on, the roof.  He outlined the work of each  department before taking the  students into the. rooms. After  navigation came draughting,  welding, cooking,. practical  nursing, watch repairing,  beauty parlor, barber shop  (haircut 15c) secretarial classes (3), carpentering, machine  shop, diesel engineering, auto  mechanics, radio  and    televis  ion and power sewing.  Mr. Clarke emphasized that  repair work done by the  students for the general public  is taken only if it has instructional value, for example, an  almost completely wrecked  automobile is excellent as  giving practice in many different skills. But recurring defects may be refused if skills  in repairing them has been  taught adequately.  Mr. Clarke and also Mr.  Moore emphasized the desirability of a student completing  grade 12 if possible. .Employers will give preference to  students with grade 12 not so  much because of the extra  knowledge obtained but because it is evidence of persistence and ability to finish a  job ��� a test of character.  This tour was organized as  a result of Mr. GoarcPs address to a Kiwanis Club meeting before Easter, and his talk  to students the following day.  The students paid their own  travelling expenses and after  the tour of the institute, had  about an hour and a Half t  shop before bus time at 4.30  p.m. A few obtained permission to take the 7.30 bus.  BURGLARY    REPORTED  Thieves entered Wakefield  Inn last Thursday evening,  and made off with' cash and  cigarettes valued at approximately  $200.  An attempt had) been made  to force the safe, without success. l  The Firemen nave all their  eld standbys and have added  a few new players and should  be one. of the top teams this  year.  ' Port Mellon's "Muscles"  Kuwica didn't waste any time  in chalking up his first win  as he chucked a two hitter to  shut-out the Seehelt Club 6-0.  Port Mellon promises to be  a strong contender this, year  and with a little help in the  pitching department may repeat last yearjs performance  by winning the  league.      r  Coach Leo Johnson of ; Seehelt has a new club but from  what I hear has a lot of good  . talent on hand, and you can't  tell, Seehelt might just pull a  few upsets before the season  is very far gone.  The Wilson Creek club  knocked off Gibsons Merchants 18-8 at ,Wilson Creek  Sunday night but up'until the  7th inning it was anybody's  ball game. Wilson Creek' is a  real hustling club, well coached and with lots of power at  the plate. Last year they won  the Osborne trophy and . the  old saying is that history ciften  repeats itself.;'; But there are  lots of games left and "who  knows what will happen? '  The Merchants are a lot  stronger this year, and there  are many new faces on ' the  club; When they get used to  one another and settle down  a bit, who can tell? Not me.  I'm not making any predictions yet. It looks' like it will  . be a real tough league this  year.  Magistrite Johnson pitched  the first ball to L. S. Jackson  to officially, open the Wilson  Creek season. Aside to Manager Moscrip: Sign them ��� up,  boy, sign them up.  My first prediction for the  season is, Pender to beat the  Firemen in Pender on Sunday.  8  Coast  News May 5,  1955  You  wouldn't  hit  your  guest  in  the  Face with  a   ���  WET FISH  But  you  May  do  so  with  a  LINE OF WET WASH!
