Array Published   in   Gibsons. B.C.  Volume 8, Number 25  June 23, 1955.  Victoria,  B.  C*  Serving the Growing  Sunshine Coast:  From  Squamish  to Pender Harbour  suggested  Sunshine Coast municipal  officials and other authorities  should open their eyes to the  necessity of adopting some  form of .regional planning in  view of the rapid growth now  taking place, says Jack Richardson, reeve of West Vancouver and finance chairman for  the Lower Mainland! Regional  Planning board; who visited  Gibsons recently. This regional planning board consists  of 26 'municipalities and the  City of. Vancouver    extending  from the sea to Hope.  . In the view of Mr!, Richardson the Sunshine Coast area  is developing so rapidly that  unless some action is taken  soon, it will prove more costly  later pn.-  . Mr. Richardson has in the  past strivedi to encourage interest in* such a move along  the Sunshine Coast but no action resulted..Now he is of the  opinion that the time is ripe  for serious consideration of  some form of regional plan-  nihgr  The district needs a regional water system serving the  whole area. This will have to  be done sometime and it  would be cheaper to' do it  now, . Mr. Richardson says.  Then there is the economic  future of .the region. What is  needed are:. selected! secondary  industries operating here in  order tbi provide employment  for the youth of the district or  they will have to move but in.  order to provide a living for1  themselves.  "The Sunshine Coast -has  great possibilites and the chief  thing people living in this  area should do is-to take a  good���long look at the- assets-  available andl try and do some  thing towards capitalizing on  them. . ' " ���  "I feel sure that officials of  the Lower Mainland Regional  Planning . Board would come  up here and talk to the clubs,  boards of Trade and other organizations provided interest  was shown, said Mr Richardson. -���  He was of the opinion a  regional planning commission  should be formed in this area.  Logger  Killed  i.  Killed almost instantly at  Lamb's Logging Camp was Alfred E. Jeffries ��� of Porpoise  Bay, Seehelt, last Friday morning, when struck by a logging  truck backing into the loading  ramp.  Dr; McColl, and Cpl. Cummins of the Seehelt detach-'  ment RCMP were called at  5.30 a.m., shortly after the  crews" had begun work.  An inquesf will be held on  June 24, Cpl. Cummins reported!. .  Mr. Jeffries was 51 years  of age, married, with three  grown children.  Mr. Jeffries was reported to  have, been working; on his  last day before leaving on a  holiday with - his family.  The ananagement of Lamb's  Logging officially stopped operations for the day with respect to the bereaved family.  ommumon  c  United  church  At Gibsons United Church  next Sunday, June 26, the  sacrament of the Lord's Supper will-be observed at the 11  o'clock service.  No cards will be issued and  it is expected that \ members  andi adherents will accept this  notice.  Those having no other  church home are cordially invited to share in this service  with the regular congregation.  Visitors to the district are also welcome. >  With a 40 in favor to nine  against vote in Seehelt Legion Hall on Thursday night  of last week, the committee  working on incorporation of  the Sechelt'area into a municipal village regarded the vote  as sufficient indication they  should go ahead with the circulation of a petition for incorporation.  After the announcement    of  the result of the vote,    chairman Magistrate Johnston said:.  "If this is the feeling, we have  started the ball rolling."  With Andy Johnston, the  chairman on5 the platform,  were Jim Parker, chairman of  the committee working on in-  Early Paper  With July 1/ Dominion  Day, falling on a Friday,  an effort will be made by  the staff of The Coast  News to have the paper  out one day earlier. This  will be done to facilitate  - matters for the advertiser,  readers of the paper and  the-staff of The Coast  News.  corporation; Robert Burns,  municipal clerk at Gibson^;  Harry Burden, chief assessment official at New Westminster; Steve Howlett of the B.64  Power Commission also on the  incorporation committee and  E. F. Cooke, of the Seehelt  Waterworks.  Mr. Johnston opened1 the  meeting by1 saying the committee was anxious to ascertain the feelings of the people  of Seehelt towards the idea of  incorporation    for    the    com  munity. The same privilege  would be given to those opposed as would be given to those  in favor on the floor of .. the  meeting, Mr. Johnston added.  Mr. Parker explained steps  taken in regards to incorpora.  tion and told how seven years  ago an attempt was made to  obtain incorporation but the  residents opposed it so the  matter was dropped. Three  years ago the Board of Trade  /.thought it advisable to revive  the idea but it remained dor-  12 new teachers needed  for schools next term  Mr. Ladds, one of the representatives for the Seehelt area,  advised the Board' that he was  severing his connection with  the Seohelt Motr Transport,  Co., having accepted a ney  position at Powell River. His  resignation as a representative to take his place was posfr  poned for the present. J'  The follwing teachers tendered their resignations as of  June. 30: Mrs. H. Evans, Elphinstone; Mr. V. C. McComb-  er, Pender Harbour; Mrs. M.  Slater,. Pender Harbour.    Pro-  Board of Trade elects  Douglas Smith president  What the new executive of  the Board of Trade needs is a  strong membership committee  which would do. something  about increasing the strength  of the organization, William  Sutherlandj present president  oi the- board said, in congratulating Douglas B: Smith,  manager .of the Bank of Montreal who was elected by acclamation as the next president  of the board.  "You are taking over the  board with finances on the  black side of the ledger," Mr.  Sutherland said. He added that  the present executive will carry on until the new slate of  officers are installed next September.  The new slate of officers  elected) consisted of: Mr. Smith  as . president; Danny Smith,  vice-president; Harold Wilson,  secretary pro-tem; Ray Kruse,  treasurer and on the executive  will be William Sutherland,  past president; Bob Ritchey,  Harry Reichelt, Norman  Hough, George Hunter, Walter  Nygren, Ed Sherman of Port  Mellon, Rollie Spencer, Jack  Glassford and A. E. Ritchey.  All were elected by acclamation.  Commenting on the. re-appointment of Mr. Wilson and  Mr. Kruse as secretary and  treasurer, Mr. Sutherland saidi  it was due to their efforts that  the Board of Trade had been  able to operate as well as it  had/. He said that Mr. Wilson  had asked to be relieved  as secretary but until the right  man is found to fill the place  now occupied by Mr. Wilson,  he will remain on the job.  Other appointments made  by the board! at its final meeting until September was to  name Mr. Smith, the new president as board member to the  joint Howe Sound Regatta  committee. ;  The board was also informed that Gordon Ballentine will  not be able t0 continue to  work for the regatta committee andl that someone else  would have to be found to  carry the load. Jack Marshall  was named to approach two  individuals to see what help  they could, give.  Harry Reichelt reported' on  the trouble he was having  with daily newspaper carriers  who litter the wharf shed with  torn wrappers and do nothing  about clearing up the mess.  Mr. Reichelt said he had authority from Victoria ^ which -  gave him  the power to deny  the .use of the wharf shed as  a distribution centre for the  lads. He maintained the ���newspapers had a lad' in Gibsons  who* was paid to clean up any  mess left; '��� The board moved  that a letter be written to both  newspapers-- informing them 'of  the situaion with the hope .^~  improvement^""."'" '  President Sutherland reported there had been no meeting  to date of the steering committee named to approach the various clubs and organizations "of  the village concerning the use  of Brothers Memorial Park as  a community centre. He said  some presidents of organizations had appointed a delegate  but that others will have to  hold a meeting before one  could be made. He also added  a meeting of the steering committee could take place probably within a week.  The1 Fish Derby fund, a defunct event which has had  some money left over in the  bank and) which was organized  by the Board of Trade in past"  years, will be turned over to  the board to be incorporated in  its general funds. The amount  involved is  $247.77.  Mrs. W. Stewart commented  oh the laxness of .notifying  members on meeting dates and  when their membership dues  were to be paid. Lock Knowles  said! he had a list of paid-up  members .available and this  would! form a basis for immediate future operations.  Mr. Knowles also asked" Mr.  Sutherland to accept nominations for the "good citizen" of  the year, a'n event the Board  of Trade has sponsored. The  territory to be covered in the  Search for this good citizen  will extend from Pender Harbour to Port Mellon and nom-  "inations will be received by  Mr. Sutherland'.  The board adjourned to take  part in the barn dance in the  new Hough barn. .,.  gress is being made in filling  vacancies on the teaching staff  but approximately 12 new  teachers are still required to  complete the staff of 44 teachers required by the District.  Transfers of Mrs. Iris Smith  from Pender Harbour to Elphinstone were approved and  Mrs. Clare Dick Svas appointed  to Division 6, Pender Harbour  and Miss Shirley Linton to the  Primary Class at Gibsons Elementary School.  All transportation contracts  for the 1955-56 school year  were reviewed and tenders  considered. In general contracts were renewed at the  same rates as were in force  last year and1, it was confirmed  . that these rates were not; out  of line with the rates approved in a department circular.  Preliminary plans in connection with the school  building  program were    reviewed   and  the architect will be    notified  as to suggested changes. There  are  still many details  to    be  ironed ut before    the    bylaw  reanibe^presenteo!:>to-'-the - Department of Education for its>  " approval and it appears to be  doubtful whether    the    bylaw  'will be readiy for presentation  to the taxpayers until the fall.  Other routine matters were  considered by the board and  Mr. Trueman was congratulated on the smoothness of the  organization for the graduation ceremonies at Elphinstone  High School with special credit being given to Grade 11 students for the decoration of the  auditorium, the efficient manner in which George Slinn acted as chairman, Wilma Luo-  ma's splendid! effort- in the  /valedictory address and the  '. excellence of the musical program arranged by Mrs. Vernon.  Wanted: One  Rev. H. Oswald  Honorary Canon  After 33 years in the service of the Anglican Church  in Canada, the Rev. H. U. Oswald has had conferred upon  him the dignity "of    Honorary  Canon, by the. Rt. Rev. Godfrey Gower, Bishop of the Diocese of New Westminster.  Educated at Trinity College,  Dublin, Mr. Oswald came to  Canada from Ireland in 1921,  .as assistant to the late Canon  B. Heeney, at St. Luke's  Church, Winnipeg. In 1923, he  went to Fernie as Rector of  Christ Church. Since then he  has served! in Powell River,  White Rock, Mission City-  churches.  Mr. Oswald came to St. Bartholomew^ Church in Gibsons  in November,' 1948.  grave  digger Start Library  The trustees of the Seaview  Cemetery met last week to discuss the matter of obtaining  services of a grave digger, Mr.  McEwen having . handed his  resignation to Mr. Graham.  The trustees felt they were  not financially able to employ  any one on a yearly basis, nor  were they obligated t0 do so,  since the cemetery is a private  one. They will, however, try  to- locate someone to do the  work as required.  The Gibsons Library is under construction, under the direction and work of Jules  Mainil, with Harry Davis helping.  The first floor has already  been laid, on solid concrete  footings. All work has been  done by hand to date, because  of lack of power outlets in the  immediate vicinity., In spite of  this, excellent progress has  been made to date.  mant until recently when an  active committee started work  on it. He added that it should  be pointed out that the Board  of Trade had no intention of  trying to put over anything  the people did not want. It  would be up to the people to  decide,, he said.  In explaining the financial  side of incorporation, Mr. Parker first said the fire department was organized by the  Board of Trade by obtaining  Credit Union funds to purchase the truck. There was  still $700 owing but the Board  of Trade would; look after  that, he said.  "At present the assessment  is going out of the district and  very little coming back. Main  highways would remain a government responsibility.. The  schools and school taxes remain under government control and the RCMP will be a  provincial government responsibility. Beyond that we are  getting very, little back but  under incorporation we could  get a great deal more," he said.  "I feel sure that Mr. Burns  will say that Gibsons waited  too long before obtaining municipal powers under incorporation. Seehelt has nice flat land  and should become a pretty  village, Mr. Parker said.  He explained that with an  estimated population of 400,  the municipality of Seehelt  would obtain a population-^  based'grant of about $5,200.  Then there would be the three  (Continued on Page 3)  AUTOMATIC  Pender Harbour will have  its own automatic telephone  system in operation by early  summer of 1956.  This is .announced by Eric  L. Mallett, B.C. Telephone  Company district commercial  manager at North Vancouve  who states that in addition to  installation of automatic equipment, the project will involve  construction of a building and  the placing of outside cable  and; wire.  Central offce dial equipment  for the new system already is  in order, although location of  the telephone building has  not yet been definitely established. Installation is expected  to begin early next year.  The Pender Harbour automatic system will, be of the  unattended type, with operator sevice for long distance  ajfid assistance purposes given  from Seehelt.  Derby trials  on June 26  The Peninsula Soap Box  Derby trial runs will be held  June .26 on the Davis Bay. hill  starting at approximately 3  o'clock in the afternoon. There  will be an inspection of the  cars before the run, Fred Mills,  official of the Der,by announces.  Cpl. Nels Cummins of the  RCMP, Seehelt, who has been  actively interested in the preparations for the Soap Box Derby, with Fred Mills was in  Mission when the Derby was  started there.  He worked with Mr. Jim  Gunn, who is now known as  Mr. Soap Box Derby in Mission. Cpl. Cummins gives all  credit to the hustling and work  of Fred Mills with the boys  and their sponsors in Seehelt.  B of T DANCE  Mr. William Sutherland,,  president of the Board of  Trade, has asked all members  to give all possible support to  the gala Dominion Day dance,  to be held on Friday, July 1,  in  the school hall at Gibsons.  The Dixieland Band will  provide top dance music, nnd-  refreshments will be  seved.  This week's hidden character has been known as a dashing young man in Seehelt. He  was heads of one of the busiest  groups in the commuhjity. In  business, it might be said he  really slays 'em.      *  Last week we missed explaining Who was Who so this  week we say the gentleman is  described' as 'most frequently  seen digging in.' Lest the suspense become overpowering  we now identify the gentleman as Mr: William Smith of  Seehelt the power unit at the  Village Bakery.  fair prize  list ready  The Howe Sound1 annual  fall fair .prize list is off the  press and available to those  interested, Mrs. M.

This prize list contains 176  pages.  Collision  cuts power  The whole Peninsula was  plunged into darkness early  last Sunday morning, as the  result of a car shearing off a  pole supporting power lines^  at the Lew Reid corner in Gibsons.  The driver, Vernon Dahl  and his two passengers had the  presence of mind to stay in  the car until the flashes from  the electrical discharge from  broken wires died; down; otherwise they might have been  killed, Mr. Howlett stated.  No one advised the Power  Commission of the location of  the break, so much time was  ]ost in effecting repairs. The  full crew was out, repairing  broken wires and replacing  the pole, which had been  sheared off and carried for  about 15 feet.  All lights were out from  about 2.30 tQ 4.30 a.m., when  main services were restored.  Service to Hopkins and Granthams Landings were restored!  about 7.40 a.m.  Because of this break, the  full time of the scheduled cutoff from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. was  not taken, Mr. Howlett'stated.  Paratroopers now  Ronald and1 Roger Johnston,  twin sons of Magistrate and  Mrs. A. Johnston of Seehelt,  have completed their para-  troop training in the Canadian  army at Rivers, Quebec, and.  have received their wings. It  is'believed they are the youngest paratroopers ir Canada.  They are 18 yervs old. i  2 Coast News June 23, 1955  Wat  0HSl 1  Published  by   Seehelt   Peninsula   News  Ltd.  every Trursday, at Gibsons, B.C.

There was quite a battery of individuals with knowledge about the subject on the platform and it appeared as  though the audience was not so much concerned with minor  detail as it was with .the overall picture. T^ere did not appear to be anyone at the meeting who stood up and deliberately spoke against the idea. All who spoke appeared to  be sympathetic in varying degrees.  Questions were asked about various phases of municipal operation and all were answered by the experts on  the platform. No question went unanswered as they were  all of the type that could be answered reasonably.  If the result of the "straw" vote can be taken as a  guide, when those elegible to vote, cast a 40-9 vote in favor,  it could mean that supporters of the movement for incorporation, if they act wisely, should not have too much  trouble in getting sufficient signatures on a petition asking for incorporation.  To say Seehelt will not benefit from incorporation  is silly. Today more money is going out of Seehelt to the  government than the government is returning to Seehelt.  There are those who fear they will be burdened with taxes  because of incorporation. Under incorporation the municipality would get a municipal grant and collect under various  tax headings, something like ��12,000. This is the amount  Seehelt people are now paying to the government and getting only a rough $1,500 back on secondary road work.  The chief point Seehelt taxpayers must ask themselves is whether they prefer a proposition, wherein they  pay pay out at least $12,000 and get back a rough $1,500 or  whether they would rather have $12,000 go into their own  municipal coffers and receive necessary services in return.  If anyone has a really sound argument against incorporation The Coast News would like to have it so it  could be published so that all may read it. ���   .

I mentioned tci a neighbor  the other day about working  on the prairie. He was a farmer there. I told him my age at  the time I was a prairie farmhand and he said we were  keeping men in the local  school older than that. He  then talked about other- days  ether ways. He thought a man  learned more by working.  Well, that may be ibut we had  to work and I know we learn-  things thereby.  I learned to drink beer. I  found that coal oil was considered necessary as a delouser  for bedding and everybody  smelt cif it, and learned how  to boil clothes to kill lice. We  arrived to thresh; I would go  up to the - house for some  sweet water (first time I heard  it named so) and the farmer's  wife would  hesitantly ask  "if  the cut fit was lousy."-  *      *      *  This locale was not far from  Calgary' and' with a bit of rain  or snow the tycoons of the  threshing gang would be  thresihing around the bordellos  in Calgary from whence the  bed bugs,and lice were easily  transported to us more archaic  folks. These minutae of the insect world 'were also boon  companions of most df the itinerant transients looking for a  job so it was accepted as a necessary evil while threshing  was on.  As I look back it is to wonder hew one managed to get  the engineer's breakfast * an  hour before the others and to  take time out to watch his" lantern across the stubble to the  THE EMIGRANT  BY L.S.J.  boiler and pretty soon see a  glow from his fiery straw furnace. This was a travelling  outfit as I have no doubt you  in the know would guess.  Some of my trials when the  caboose was hitched on behind  the engine to move, sometimes  in the dark, across country  with the occasional badger  hole to drop into���then square *  things away for the engineer's  breakfast.  * *      *  The boss was a bit taken  aback one day when I told him  I could butcher a steer if he  brought one in. There was a  shelf-like contrivance, fly -  proofed under. the caboose  where we .kept perishable  stuff and ��� the meat soon froze.  The modus operandi was to^  pull a quarter out on the  grass and! take a double bitted  axe for lopping off steaks."  For me this was like Brer Rabbit in. the Brier Patch. I had  been. brought up in the butchering business.  The fare was beef and pork  with rice pudding and raisins,  dried apples, apricots and -  prunes, and raisin pie. I had  some difficulty with rice at  first and the proportions I  tho.ught would be enough generally filled three pots before  it quit swelling. We did; not  make bread but we made lots  of cciokies as there was the  afternoon chore in a buggy out  to the field with a' box of  cookies and two. big   pots    of  tea.  * *  -   *  Supper was a bit of a problem, as one did not know if  they would finish or run till  dark or what have you but at  that age nothing  daunts.  This farmer was a decent  bloke and offered to help any  MOVING TREES JUST GIRAFFES  BY ERIK OLESON  of us new chums to* a pre-emp-  tion up north, but the westerly  wind magickedi us t0 dreaming and with that piece of  glistening brocade that adorned the western skyline taunting our youth it was just hot to  be. I have often pondered the  realm cf "might have ��� been"  and when-one. meets tha odd  farmer chap from there in  these parts that old cliche  comes to mind "There but for  the grace of God go I."  It is not out of the arc cf possibility that this chap I worked,  for is still around and he  might like t0 know that it was  at least given some thought.  We eventually got back home  which was a frame shack  where four men slept and "et"  and with winter finally drove  the bess into. Calgary while  we looked after the stock.  * * a  One job. I remember with  , some pleasure was cutting  holes in the ice for "25 or 30  steers. We only had one pony  and while one man chopped  the hole the * ether was on  horseback with a whip to keep  the herd at bay which was  quite a job once they smelled  the water. We were milking  three cows and as the pans  filled with milk in the course  of a dayi or so there would  be cream on all sides. So in  order to, use some of it up we  cooked the mush in cream one  morning and after that w��=  wanted no more cream in any  way, shape or form. The chickens and pigs got cream from  then. on.  This last paragraph must  mention the duck dinners ws  had from time toi time. There  was an American lad on the  next place and we supplied  ducks for his Ma to cook on  v Sundays. The sight of eight to  ten ducks in one large dish  and the appetite of a, horse  makes knife bright dreams  and in memory Inlays strange  tricks because I immediately  remembered the lad's name.  It was Luther Rutledge.  There is something a little  bewildering to the experience  of riding along-a dirt road at  25 miles an hour and suddenly focussing on a leopard,  standing stone ..still on a rock.  "You slow down, the leopard  saunters off the rock, ignores  the car for a time, then saunters across the road into the  white thorn thicket leading  down to the Sabi River.  A little further along ., the  trees seem to be wandering  about but as you draw nearer  you find yourself being disdainfully scanned by a lofty  giraffe���dark brown with orange markings. Nearby, his  family, at. varying heights, is  breakfasting on the tops of the  thorn trees. Kruger National  Park is like that���one surprise  after another, and all quite at  home.  You very early learn the  wisdom of keeping in your  car and of maintaining a speed  limit of 25 miles per hour. Before you've been half a day in  the game reserve you give up  noticing the handsome impala  with his dainty herds and his  very sharp curved horns.  He is two - thirds the side  of a mule deer. Close by  him are herds cf wildebeeste,  better known to us if known  to us at all, as gnus.  There are bluish - black  hunched up diminutive bison -  like animals with shaggy fore-  quarters. They lope off with  an ungainly pitching roll.  Now and then a shy bush-  buck with spiked horns comes  across the road. He is a solitary animal. The still smaller  duiker springs abount here  and there.  All of this you see in the  morning, for by 10.30 the heat  is too intense and most of the  animals have taken to the  bush or as we would say,    to  the woods.  The water-buck has embarrassing markjngs . that make  'him look as thciugh"he had sat  down on a freshly painted toilet seat.  The whole story of African  wild life unfurls itself at the  water hole. There I saw two  giraffes ��� all dignity lost,  sprawling over their splayed  front legs to get a drink.  Herds of vividly marked zebra  came to�� drink, making barber-  pole reflections in the water.  Two wart hogs took a drink,  then trotted off with their ridiculous tails straight up in the  air.  The lions I did not see for  there has been so much rain  the grass is too tall and too  plentiful: The roads in Kruger  Park are laid out by the usual  water holes, but with excess  of water the game uses other  water holes  just new.  As the sun began to cool I  looked down into a gully here  known as a spruit, and, there  among the silvery tasseled  reeds 'were five giant elephants grazing and waving  their big ears. We watched*  as long as we could! and then  hurried back to the    Skukuza  Rest  Camp.      All  camp gates  close at 5,4.5.-p.m..an.d..to.be:;owt.  later brings a iihe which    increases  with the  hour.     .The  night  belongs to the animals..  Impala    snort;    wildebeeste  groan fibrously,.    Jackals yap���  hyenas cackle,    then    a    lion  stabs the  darkness with  a resounding roar and  everything  else freezes into silence.    You  say a sort of prayer   for   the  firmness of the gate of the rest  camp.  Nearby at his estate on  White River is the original  Skukuza���- so named by the  natives when he founded the  game reserve, on old Paul  Kruger's original suggestion.  Skukuza4 means "He who turns  things upside down." He is lit.  Col. J. Stevenson - Hamilton,  now 88 and retired, the first  warden of the park. His wife  Hilda is one of Africa's foremost artists of wild life.  I have just come from three  days spent with my old friend  Skukuza, and they were days  of enormous privilege. One  day we took tea with his assistant of 40 years, Harry Wol-  huter, who is legendary in Af  rica, for after being knocked  off his horse by a great black-.  ,,maned lien and picked up by  the shoulder arid dragged by  the lion, he had the presence  of mind to get out his sheath  knife andt stab the lion twice  in the heart and once inN the  throat. It dropped him, went  into a nearby bush and expired. Wolhuter, bleeding badly  climbed a tree for the lioness  came back.

His warnings  against reckless actions by minority  groups in labor in Britain have meaning in Canada, as well.  Mr. O'Brien said:  t  "Workers of this country can tear  down the industries which provide  their sustenance.  "It is our job to see that the prosperity achieved is fairly and fully  shared.  1  I  I  I  1  I  I  1  I  I  I  1  I  1  I  ���  1  1  I  1  a  1  I would rather negotiate   improve  ments for my members with a  mil-  iionaire than with a bankrupt.

There would  also be the two percent return,  on proceeds from money collected by B.C. Telephones.  There are some 40 businesses now paying business taxes  to the provincial government  which wouldi be paid to the  municipality. Now there is no  power by which the authorities could tax peddlers. Under  municipal government these  would be taxed. He estimated  the total of funds the municipality could collect would be  abount $12,300.  Against those figures he  said there would be an annual  spending of $1,500 on the fire  department; $1,100 to start  with for 30 street lignts; $2,000  for roads, more than was now  spent on them; $1,200 for a  municipal clerk; $1,200 for  general administrative costs  and about $400 for miscellaneous expenses. This totalled  $7,400 which would leave a  rough $5,000 balance.  "We can also call on the  Town Planning Board for  help. An official of* the board  is of the opinion we have excellent possibilities for town  planning," Mr. Parker concluded.  Mr. Burns, Oibsons municipal clerk spoke next *and' in ,  part he said people who believed, in representative government will look after their  own business properlyvHe was  of the opinion Seehelt had    a  A (questioner asked what  Gibsons' - experience v^as regarding the change between  government financing and financing by a village municipality. Mr. Burns said that in  1929 Gibsons had some roads  and a three-quarter inch water  pipe laid on the* ground from  the creek at Granthams.  There were no street lights  and no public float. Taxes,  less schools were 10 mills on  100 percent assessment value  The village was formed and a  tax rate, less schools was 10  mills on 100 percent of land  assessment and 50 percent improved property. "We opened  up every lane in the village  so they could be travelled by  autos, got a water system, a  fire department1 handcart, and  hose, bought the water springs  property and later installed a  gravity line with a good supply of water for all who wanted it. We did all those things  without increasing taxes. We  raised'- taxes only when we  built the municipal hall and1  other extra expenses," he said;  As an after thought he added: "Over the years the Gibsons taxpayers got more for  their money by becoming a  municipality than they would  have Obtained if the taxes had  gone to the provincial government.";  At,this point L. S. Jackson  rose and said tliat years ago  the people of Seehelt fought  against the idea pf incorpbra-  tion without knowing what it ���'  was about.       He thought the  reasonably sized population , village had lost about $30,000  with which/to work: If-the  municipal fax level passed the  $12,500. mark the municipality  would become liable to receive  reduced government assistance.

As regards the  fire department, passing the  hat around-is not so, good, but  under a tax levy it would be  levied in relation to the service given. -'       -.*  When question time came  the first questions asked were  whether a properly financed  fire department would reduce  insurance rates. Mr. Burns  said he was before organization paying $21" but now he  was paying $13 but he did not.  think that was the whole answer because water service and  fire hydrants would be necessary. .,,, .  Next question was at what  time does the RCMP enter into the municipal finance setup.  Magistrate Johnston rose immediately and replied, "Not  until you appear before me in  court."  tax collecting. It depended on  how fast the ratepayers wanted to go, he added.  Mr. Burns "was asked -the  direct question*-by someone' in  the audience whether Gibsons  people were satisfied with ��incorporation. Mr. Burns replied  "Yes. We have many more  things at Gibsons than they  have at Granthams (unincorporated) and! ac other places.  These places are now paying  government taxes; theri they  have to dig in their'own pockets to add improvements. We  are doing all this out pf taxes"  he said.  To another questioner on  waterworks, Mr. Burns explained that the Gibsons waterworks was carrying itself financially.  Someone asked what would  a Seehelt mill rate *be to start  with and Mr. Burns said- 10  mills, the same as the present  rate now being paid the government.  ,   A    questioner     wanted     to  Oops!

He was  ,  of ��the opmion; Mr; Burns had  ; giyen a good! exposition of the  situation-:in Gibsons ^and it  should get. carelul consideration;  A questioner wanted to  know ifvit was mandatory that,  the . 75; percent assessment be  general. Mr. Burden replying  said no it would not. It was  * mandatory, in unorganized territory but a municipality can,  set its own assessment rate.  The next questioner.: wanted  to know if village roads would",  have to be taken, care .of.v. by-  the village. Mr. Johnston ens-  wered by saying the figure,  mentioned ($1,200) was present cost of .grading roads based  on the service supplied today.  New roads would be an added  expense. ,  Mr.    Burns    suggested       it  would be better to hire equipment 'than to own same.      No  village    would    have    enough  work to keep an $8,000 truck  at work the year round    and  the same    applied:    to    other  equipment.      Someone    asked  if the  present  water    system  entered into the incorporation  picture.      Mr.  Parker  replied  there was no truth in the > report the village would have to  buy the water system.  It was  a privately owned utility,    he  explained. Later, he said, maybe it could be purchased  but  there was no    compulsion    to  buy now. -  Would it (incorporation)  cost us more taxes? This was  asked by the next questioner.  Mr. Burns replied that if the  ratepayers did not want any  work done they ' could! get  along oh the government grant  but if there was work the ratepayers asked to have done,  more taxes would have to be  levied. In Gibsons, he explained, the same amount of taxes  have been paid as would have  been paid under    government  'kt.%iua...��..M��Mu........Tr.Tnrrnr.'fl��iM^.T^^^ s!  lei : : : -���c " "��� . -  ii  know* what would be the power of the commission;over the  opening and closing hours of  business. Mr. Burns replied  this would be done by petition  from the merchants and then  a bylaw could be passed.  Another questioner sought  information on putting a zoning bylaw into effect and Mr.  Burns covered some of the  intricacies  involved.  On the subject of animals at  large, posed' by a member of  the audience, Mr. Burns jumped int0 the breach and explained that a municipality had the  legal power to curb animals  at large but did not have the  physical power. Gibsons had  the same problem and it meant  setting up a pound bylaw  which would mean establishing a pound and; the expense  necessary which he maintained was beyond present requirements. He was of the opinion-  the government should have a  herd regulation covering the  whole Peninsula area.  How to incorporate? This  was asked next and Mr. Parker explained the petition  metJhod. It could be done by  plebiscite but government authorities, he said, favored' the  petition-method.  Mr. Burden added* that if  he was living in Seehelt he  would vote for incorporation.  He said he had seen many villages incorporated and none of  them wanted to go back into .  unorganized! territory; As 'regards taxation there-was little  or no difference whether you  paid the government or the  municipality.' A lot depended  on the, pace df growth, he  said.  "Elect good sound businessmen to your council and- you  will have nothing to fear, you  have certain control over their  actions  and it  is  a  generally  ;Vhappier situation than    would  be otherwise," he said!.  He added that a good zoning  bylaw helped to attract people  who would be able to build  knowing that a machine shop  was not going to be built next  door to them.  * At the conclusion of the  question period Magistrate  Johnston explained the method to be used for balloting in  the hall and who would be allowed to ballot/  "If you vote 'no' the committee will drop the matter for  the time being but if there is  a preponderance of 'yes' votes,  they will g0 ahead with the  petition. It is for you to indicate your preference."  Those who voted were individuals who were resident  in Seehelt or who owned property in Seehelt but lived elsewhere.       ^  The resulting vote with Mr.  Burden and Mr. Burns as scrutineers was 40 in favor and  nine against.

GROUSE  This season, on the Mainmort golf course, a grouse has  had a nest, right out in the  open. It was noticed that the  eggs kept disappearing until  there was only one left, and  the hen' abandoned" the nest.  Harry Reichelt thought perhaps the egg might still be  good,, and since he had a banty  hen at home who was not busy  took the egg in his pocket. One  Friday the egg hatched, and  the Reichelt family including  the banty have been busy  keeping track of the baby  grouse. The little chick started the first day by an exploratory journey down the road.  gee   THENEW544NCH  REPUBLIC  STEEL SINK & CABINET  0 NYLON DRAWER SLIDES      �� 12" DEEP DRAWERS \  ��INSULATED DOOR and DRAWER FACES  G�� SINGLE HANDLE FAUCET & VEGETABLE SPRAY  G POP-UP SHELF, COMPLETE WITH  HAMILTON-BEECH MIXER  SEE IT AT  GIBSONS BUILDING  Phone Gibsons 53  at  Sunn  New Summer Hears  EFFECTIVE FRI.

H. Atkinson, the retiring president,  told the annual meeting of  the Canadian Bankers' Association recently.  . Up to April 30, 1955, with  the mortgage program in effect only slightly more than a  year, the chartered banks have  committed more than $210,-  000,000 in housing loans, said  Mr. Atkinson, who today completed his two-year term as  president.  "Of the total number of  housing units approved for  loans under the act, 40 percent  are being financed by the  chartered' banks," continued  Mr. Atkinson; adding that the  extent of bank participation  was "a notable contribution toward easing the housing problem throughout CanadJa."  Mr. Atkinson noted that the  chartered banks had entered  with energy'and dispatch the  latest field of special banking  legislation ^��� the Home Improvement Loans sections of  the National Housing Act. Between Feb. 1, when the legislation went into effect,. and  May 5, 2,500 loans totalling  $3,250,00 had been recorded  with Central Mortgage and  Housing Corporation.  ' 'During the short -life of  this new banking service," he  said, "loans have been averaging $1,000,000 a month���a fig^  ure, I believe, that will increase as both banks and home  owners become more familiar  with this lending field."  Dancers  perform  For the audience of the  dancing display at Roberts  Creek Hall, the show was a  delightful "mixture of wonderment at the skill, and convulsive merriment at some of the  antics and facial expressions.  During an Irish Jig, one of  the tiny tots had such a fierce  cburitenarice   the    audience  'rolled in the aisles,"    to borrow an apt phrase.  Mrs. Orcharde, director, and  ��� some of the mothers would be  the first to admit that quite a  ''few of these dancers, not long  ago, had three left feet.  -jNpWj under capable instruction, "they have  discovered    a  ;; r^htj-and a left, and certainly  ���&&��&' 'what to do with them.

(Angela) Hamer  of Vancouver, and three-year-  old Maria.  After an emergency operation in Vancouver, Mrs. Alma  Scott of Porpoise Bay is recuperating as well as could  be expected.,  A long time resident, Mrs.  Mickey (Mary) Blanchard, of  Seehelt with her son Del is  moving  to Vancouver.  Her late husband "Chuck"  was the owner of Chuck's Motors, now known as Peninsula  Logging Supply under the  management of O and O Logging Co.  Mrs. Blanchard said she  may return if she finds Del  and herself do not care for  city life.  One little fellow was determined to get a free ride on  ���the ferris wheel when the carnival was in town.  When the man stopped the  wheel, the small one would  dart under the rope and clamber clumsily onto the seat, and-  sit there with a^ beguiling look  on his face.  .     Finally the man' at the controls, amused by this tenacity,  put the bar across ��the seat  too late!  A rather breathless voice  was -heard! to call "Here, Major  come here you naughty pup!"  Mr. and Mrs. Joe Rodgers,  of Seehelt, proudly presented  their young son, Robin, with  a nine pound (and over) baby,  sister, Wednesday at St.  Mary's Hospital, Pender Har- ,  bour.  In view of the fact B:C.fElgc-  .tric will be supplying'thi^ district with power in the months  to come, readers of The Coast  News might be interested in  B.C. Electric developments.  Here is one:  Working two shifts a day, a  small*army of B.C. construction men and battalions of specialized! machines have whittled a mountain shoulder* into  a molehill to build the 12,000-  foot power canal at BCE's Se-  ton hydro-electric plant a mile  south of Lillooet.    *  Twelve months away lies  deadline when the $8,700,000  job must be finished and 42,-  000 kilowatts���enough , for a  city of 60,000���flash south to  swell the Lower Mainland's  supply of power.  In a nutshell, Seton station  will use for a second time the  water which has already spun  the turbines at the Bridge River plant, 20 miles away on  Lake Seton.  By harnessing the water as  it drains from the lake toward  the Fraser River and combining it with the flow from Cay-  oosh Creek, nearly 60,000 hp  can be generated, without the  cost of installing a large storage dam for year-round operation. That makes it a dream  from the engineer's point of  view.  But there- are also some  headaches:  That 12,000-foot canal must  be finished with machine-like  precision. To preserve all the  "fall" possible until the final  drop to the power-house, the  grade tilts just 3/8 of art inch  per 100 feet���about 5 ' feet  along the 2 1/4 mile length of  the channel.   ���  That calls for extreme accuracy in grading the canal'  embankments and pouring the  reinforced concrete lining: But  BCE engineers and the general  contractors,    Emil    Anderson,  Ltd., of-Hope,    figure"   they'll  make it. '���.'���''. '���'"  In the 18 months the work  has been going on, hard-driving crews have'.. accomplished  plenty. '  1. They've - carved away .  more than 1,250,000 cubic  yards from a mountain shoulder to form the canal. That's  enough material to surface 700  miles���nearly half the length  ���of the Alaska Highway.  2.

A sense of humor is  a great help. Many years ago  I went t0 a    small, town    to  preach. I was met at the    station by an    84-year-old    man  with a horse and buggy.      He  was a lively old man and    so  was his horse. I got into   ,the  buggy with    some   hesitation.  Them I pulled a boner. I said  "Isn't that a lively horse    for  ah old man to drive?" He answered:  "It certainly is,  and I .  wouldn't let an old- man touch  her."    The    84-year:old    man,  ' chuckled, and I knew I deserved the rebuke. Later, I found  lliis old man was the. liveliest  and best-loved . man    in    the  town. His sense of humor was  irrepressible.     Every    Sunday  he conducted a Bible class of  60 members.  He reminded me of the- hu-  imorist, Tom Hood, who in his  last illness, had a large mustard plaster put on his chest.  Hood, always a small man,  looked at the plaster and said: .  "That is an awful lot of rrius-  -tard for such a little bit of  meat."  When people act naturally I  think they live longer and are  happier. In J- M. Barrie's book  "The Little Minister," he tells  of the lively young minister  coming out of church on a  windy Sunday and his hat  blowing over a fence. He leaped over the fence and grabbed  his hat. The old people were  shocked and called a meeting  ictf the officials of the church  t0 discuss the affair. The old  man, more liberal than others,  protested that the minister had  a right to chase the hat. To  this, one solemn official said:  ���"If "the minister is going t0 run  he should run very reverently." , What kind of a wiggle  that would be I'll never know.  ���> Association with youngsters  keeps people young. When the  British poet, Francis Thomson  was dying, he said to those at  his bedside: "When you get to  heaven you will find me in  the nurseries." Hel had, always  been a great.'.loye^pf children.,.  If ever I grow impatient with  young people, I know I'm getting old.   ,  Here are the Lennicks, Ben "and. Sylvia, CBC radio family  whose favorite recordings and chit-chat are enjoyed by listeners  from the Maritimes to" the west coast every Tuesday and Thursday at 5 on the Trans-Canada network. Little Theatre actors  and winners of drama festival awards, they are also known for  their work in Toronto radio and television dramas.  Oliver Wendell - Holmes said:  "It is enthusiasm for some  cause that makes life worth,  living." That is profoundly  true. Recently a man died in  England whom I knew well.  He retired from teaching  school at 65 and began the,  study of languages. Before he  died at 90 he had a fair knowledgeof- seven languages, and  to the end he was thrilled with  his interests. There is no valid  reason why time should write  wrinkles on the soul.  Another old, man found a  hobby in attending children s  parties, and being the "life of v  the party." He had learned  some simple tricks ct�� magic  and he enjoyed it as much as  the youngsters.  Talking about tricks-1 am  reminded of a story of Canon  Ainger, once Dean of St.  Paul's Cathedral. He loved  children's parties and was  once invited toi one in London. Dressed in full clericals,  he arrived at the address given  him. When the servant opened  the door he said: "Don't let  them know I am here." Then  he flopped onto his knees and  made for a rocm from which  he heard voices. He grunted  like a pig, crowed like a rooster, and barked like a dog. Instead of children's laughter,  he was astonished at the si- '  lenc.e.

M.- CAMPBELL  SECHELT 83 W 8 Coast News June 23, 1955  The ball game between  Chops' Mops and the Old  Timers in the ballpark Monday night was an official score-  keeper's nightmare. * Coaches  . of both sides shuffled their  teams about, made substitutions not according to Hoyle,  and1 generally strived to confuse the other side. Who was  next at bat was always an interesting problem even though  confusing.  At the start of the game it  was evident the team of males  described as "Old: Timers"  were thoroughly disorganized  and the event proceeded to  a complete shambles in spite  of the masterful coaching by  a representative of the forces  of law and order.     ,       ��'  The girls naturally acted  with all the proverbial dtecor-  um of a girls' ball team and  deserved the sympathy of the  numerous umpires that appeared to be scattered at convenient places. During one daring  dash to first base the first  baseman (male) kept his foot  off the bag because he feared  he would get spiked by the  cnrushing runner. This attempt to obtain the sympathy  of the umpires fell flat.  The gals, game to the last  cheer, now want to meet the  real Old Timers. They feel  they could play a better game  - than the substitute team coached by Cpl. Morrison.  The score���according to the  last official count was 17-10.  Chuck Tompkins is getting  a bull-dozer to fill the hole he  made when he bounced off  first base.  Ball scouts from the Kiwanis Club were on hand for Monday night's game and , after  careful consideration of the  calibre of play by the girls  have come, to the conclusion  that the Kiwanis team of  known professional ball players would be pleased to show  the girls and Chops McGean  just how ball can be played  by men who really know how.  Proceeds will be in aid of  the VON so spectators are asked to save some two-bit or  four-bit pieces to put in to  collection. A date for the game  will be announced later.

The Firemen  have now taken over the lead.  The game of the week was  Wilson Creek's victory over  Port Mellon Sunday night.  Johnnny Clayton shut-out the  Port Mellon nine 1-0 in one of  the closest games this year. Al  Jackson was the big gun for  Wilson Creek and if it hadn't  been for Port Mel Ion's tight  infield it couid have been a  high scoring contest.  The Merchants lost twice  during the week as the Firemen knocked them off V-'-fi on  Tuesday night and Pender  edged them out 4-2 on Sunday.  Seehelt upset Wilson Creek  14 13 Tuesday but were swamped 16-5 on Sunday by the Firemen.  Wilson Creek downed the  Firemen 6 3 in the replayed  game on Friday.  I would like to thank Mr.  H. Roberts, secretary, MPS  league, zone councillor of  BCASA for his letter in which  he didn't quite fully explain  the facts of the suspension of  a player and the replayed!  games.  If Mr. Roberts as zone councillor thought I was cluttering  , up the minds of the fans with  trash and untruths I think it  was his job to report to. the  fans what was going on in a  concise, factual report. ; Fans  make the game and? it is only  fair to keep them posted on  what is happening.  For the information of the  fans andi the zone councillor, I  - would like, to make it clear  that I am not a staff reporter  for this paper nor am I statistician for the MPS league. I  merely write down my own  opinions on sports as I did in  this case.  As for my status as manager  of a team I keep that separate  of my column and think that  the zone councillor should too.  As far as being notified by  mail of the meeting in . question, never sir, never.  . The fans who attend ball  games in Gibsons are wondering what happened to the  field that the School Board  promised. Also the fact that  the vision at he old! field is  blocked by groups of players  huddled together and coats  and spectators drapedi over the  fence. Let's give the fans a  chance, after all they contribute the do-re-me that keeps the  teams operating. ' :        *  I understand that there,, 4s  a service station operator now  S5 poorer for offering Millie  Germaine of Chops Mops; this  sum if she hit a home run in  the game apainst the "Old  Timers." Millie obliged by  hitting one and! then turning  the money into the kitty as did  the men with their share of  the  night's  proceeds.  The ironic part  is that  the  ' fielder who let  the    ball    go  through is an employee of the  service station. Looking for  a  job, Dave?  Wilson Creek  to    beat    Seehelt on Sunday.
